  1. She could have easily just walked out of wherever she was but no we must all cause scenes. Everyone from every political faction. They are all jokes 😂

    What a fkn hero…. she was fkn leaving besides in texas they dont need to wear masks !!!

    • @Shiddy McGee meh, not much but I have to admit it’s *a little* entertaining following the logic of idiots.

      @Chantelle Hutchison she was leaving after she was already being arrested thats not leaving…. at that point its evading arrest..

    • Mandates made no difference, businesses were doing this LONG before mandates were even in place, citing private property rights trump the rights of all American free Citizens rights.

    • @Ben Bowlin Enforcing mask policies via fraudulent trespass claims should be illegal.

    • @Misfitsickboy Yes, how can you claim private property overrides The Consititution of the USA, but then call public taxpayer police to enforce it?

    Greg Abbott the Texas Governor signed executive orders to abolish the mask mandates, this woman should sue

    • @leocadfx leocadfx well, this lady got the wrong deal of the law.

    • @Bob Dole Are they a health institution? Are they qualified to make health decisions and prescribe medical devices to an American Citizen, and without any license to do so?
      Is it ethical of them to charge a customer with trespass (which requires unlawful entry, and INTENT to do harm) or anything else that is not directly related to their store policy?

    • @Xong Lo The business’ mask policy. It is not enforceable in any way, as you have noticed. This is why they abuse trespass law and even call taxpayer paid “non private property” police to coerce their customers.
      it’s an abuse of police force AND the law imo and these businesses need to be sued.

    • Any business can require a mask to be worn.

    • @Mark Javier yes, but that will cause some stupid customers get them the right of way by law n refuse to wear mask.

  4. She was warned.

      @Beto Ortis Looks like someone needs to study a dictionary & a history book. You are outing yourself as a dolt. Keep going…
      I have my popcorn!!!

    • @Jonathan Edward
      Oh the popcorn….
      Maybe you should use your brain….
      instead of thinking you’re smarter than everyone else…
      Which you’re clearly not

    • @Kyd Wykkyd its not law in texas. In fact cases have gone down since they got rid of their masks there and in florida.

    • @Lm T I honestly don’t even care anymore. I got more important things to do then argue over this stupid lady. Anyways anything said from here I won’t be replying to cause I can’t even bother to care.

    • @Kyd Wykkyd It’s not the police’s job to enforce private property policies

    Body cams are an invaluable tool. I hope more law enforcement sees the potential

    • They do, but some would rather save money and some corrupt cops turn their body cams off in order to get away with bad behaviour.

    • More importantly we as a society need to see the value and force the police to wear them. I don’t get to chose what PPE I get to wear at work.

    • @justsomeguy agreed

    • @justsomeguy More importantly we as a Society should realize we are in a Surveillance State and seriously consider permanent ways of carrying a camera at all times on our person and recording every minute to be something we don’t even think about, for our own protection.

    hahahahahahahha other karen lol

  10. She was arrested for a disorderly persons violation not for the mask order. I dont think there’s any cops going out of their way to arrest ppl for masks.

    • Close, but not quite. She was charged with Criminal Trespass and Resisting Arrest.

    • There is no mask law. If you don’t wear a mask it’s a trespassing law you are breaking.

      @justsomeguy Except you have to be given a trespassing warning in print. Not sure they gave her one. She’s getting cash no matter what if she wants to

    • @justsomeguy Except that is an abuse of trespass law, no matter how you look at it.
      A business doesn’t get their way trying to compel a medical device onto a free and healthy Citizen, so makes a fraudulent claim of trespass or other, in order to compel them. Its abuse, unethical immoral no matter what you say.

    • @toronto daddy Lawyers need to get on this. It’s an abuse of private property rights vs public rights.
      Claiming to be ‘private property’ on one hand, but then using public paid police to do their bidding on false premise that an actual crime was committed .

  11. Thank you!

  12. Bye, karen. You’re hilarious

  13. wonder if ppl would be happy if it was their mother or grandmother? 🙄

    • glad im not related to any one of you

    • @C D Great, now I hope you know where the border is.

    • steve ofsteve | March 18, 2021 at 5:45 AM | Reply

      other peoples mothers and grandmothers are being responsible and wearing masks where required. Yours wasn’t…lock her up.

    • @steve ofsteve She wasn’t arrested for not wearing a Mask.
      You need to understand that is impossible.
      What the business did was committ a fraudulent claim of trespass and ‘disturbing the peace’ instead, because their Mask policy is actually unenforceable.
      For you to celebrate this abuse of police power is disgusting.

    • If it was my mother or grandmother I’d be angry at them for making the family look like a collection of idiots

  14. Crazy

  15. These are always great. Enjoy your vaccay! lol

  16. How come they don’t do this in Canada

    • They do here in Ontario everyday

    • They do. Although I wasn’t arrested, I was certainly ‘encouraged’ by the RCMP who were already on site, doing the bidding of Walmart, to leave the property if I didn’t want to don The Mask.
      The customers around jeered, cheered and clapped, thinking I was arrested over it. Sickens and angers me to the stomach to even recall the event, which changed my view on life and my society forever.

    • @entItyVR AWW POOR H.S DROP OUT who doesnt understand science DERP

  17. Need more of this mask enforcement in Canada

  18. Idiots & Hypocrites | March 19, 2021 at 9:37 PM | Reply


  19. Well now in Texas they won’t be doing that anymore and willing to bet her charges get chucked out

    • Businesses were already doing this LONG before any mandate, and will continue to do so, on the claims that their ‘private property’ rights trump the Constitution and Charter of Rights (Canada), and that they can call the taxpayer police to enforce their mask policy on private property (doesnt make much sense huh).
      Even then, it’s not illegal to not wear a Mask, and businesses know this, so they FRAUDULENTLY abuse trespass law to do it. THIS should be illegal.
