Pandemic Freakout Session….There is no question that COVID-19 has established itself as a problematic disease. It has messed up the sporting seasons, ruined many businesses and caused them to have to fail for bankruptcy, and contributed to general discord throughout the United States and the rest of the world.
Even though all American states continue to try to curb the spread of this Pandemic virus, there are still a lot of people who are not following the government recommendations. Even though it has been proven time and again that wearing a mask will protect people from contracting the virus, there are still plenty of cases spreading like crazy across the Southwest and the American South.
People are expected to wear their masks and stay at least six feet from each other in order to keep the virus contained. That shouldn’t be too much to ask, but apparently for some people it is.
One case in point would be the patron to one Arkansas steakhouse in particular. She had a calm request that she should maintain her distance from other customers because of the COVID scare, but instead of just complying to the request, she got angry and started to deliberately cough on other customers at the restaurant!
Naturally, other people started to get angry over this, and that is when the riot began to break out. Seth Crews was the individual who caught the entire moment of mayhem on camera for all the world to see.
Of course, that is when Crews’ brother stepped in and tried to break up the fight. However, it was no use because most of the individuals in that Arkansas dining establishment that day were gunning for a fight. They began to throw punches in that Little Rock restaurant. It really goes to show you that there are some situations where people just don’t respect each other, even in the midst of this terrible virus.
The video started when an angry customer vehemently denied that he was too close to another patron during the Pandemic. The person making the accusation was sitting down and wearing a mask and said, “You have to move. You need to be at least six feet away from me.”
Of course, this all stems from the fact that there are at least a few people who are trying to abide by the CDC guidelines that we all should wear a mask and stay at least six feet away from people.
However, there was one man in particular in that restaurant that day who was having none of it. He was wearing a “USA” shirt and he stormed over to where the argument was taking place and he turned the disagreement into an all-out brawl. The man wearing the USA shirt attacked the black man wearing the mask, and that’s when all heck broke loose.
Of course, footage clearly shows that the man in the “USA” shirt was the one who was instigating the fight. Finally, someone proceeded to smash a bottle over the man’s head, and that’s when everything turned into abject chaos. People throughout the restaurant then proceeded to get up and start fighting over the COVID-19 concerns.
It was unclear why the restaurant allowed patrons to get closer than six feet apart, and it also remains unclear whether they will issue a statement regarding this debacle that occurred within their establishment.
To his credit, even after the fight was over, Mr. Crews tried to be as diplomatic as possible. “I just think that if someone is telling you that they want you to stay away from them, in these times you probably should just avoid going near them. Also, if you want to avoid getting Coronavirus, a restaurant is probably not where you should go.”
Of course, this is a microcosm of a larger problem. The American South is continuing to reap some of the poor planning on the part of their governors. Many of them ignored the obvious warnings and now they are experiencing the obliterating assault that this virus can have on society.
Some people are even projecting that the daily Pandemic infections could reach 100,000 individuals per day if some of these states do not take any type of serious action.
“It simply isn’t wise for people to congregate inside a bar right now. It’s bad news and we’ve got to stop that right now,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said. “We are going to have to emphasize the responsibility that we have not only as individuals but also as part of greater society. We all have to play a part in ending this virus.”
What do you think about this brawl that broke out in this Arkansas bar?
