Letter: Not wearing mask ‘the latest pigheadedness’


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Retired lawyer Henry Dickson wrote a letter in early August alerting citizens a legal remedy called depraved indifference could be used to forcefully remove the scofflaws we all see daily around town flouting COVID protocol.

Mr. Dickson spoke of “depraved heart,” with regard to human life, possessed by people who believe their constitutional rights or vanity supersedes (or the politically-charged Trumps) the health of others.

The latest pigheadedness is the absurdity of not donning a mask to prove one is not afraid of the inanimate microscopic spreader of death with no vaccine.

Anybody up for a city sweep by State Police?
