Educators in Colorado could face prison time if they don't enforce a local mask mandate

People these days take face masks very seriously, to the point that some of them are literally willing to throw you in prison if you don't comply with the new mask world order:

Some parents are suing Tri-County Health Department over its mask mandate. At issue is whether teachers and administrators can be arrested, charged and prosecuted, not only if they don't wear masks themselves in school, but if their students don't wear masks.

The superintendent of Littleton Public Schools told the school board last week they could be held criminally liable for not enforcing the mask mandate.

Tri-County Health says if educators don't enforce the mandate, it's a class 1 misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison and $5,000 fine.

One parent complained that the county's mask order "has turned teachers into law enforcers." But that's not quite right: The mask order itself is not a "law" but a directive from an exceptionally powerful arm of a government bureaucracy.

Which is to say that teachers in Littleton could be facing the full force of the law simply for failing to enforce what is essentially an extralegal directive.

This is where so much of the country is after a year and a half of pandemic-fueled hysteria!
