Aren‘t death threats illegal? If they locked up everybody that sent them, people wouldn’t be so eager to make them.Case in point:
A few months back Dr. Amy Acton headed the Ohio Department of Health. She guided Gov. Mke DeWine on how to navigate the Covid crisis in Ohio, and DeWine to his credit took her advice. Both were widely praised.
But then came the pushback. When the “re-open” people started getting nuts, she found her home being picketed and her family (including children) being threatened.
On top of that, the Ohio General Assembly decided her scientific approach was just too...scientific, and took away her authority to declare health emergencies.
That was it for her. She resigned shortly thereafter. And no one can blame her.
Last week Gov. DeWine announced her replacement, Dr. Joan Duwve. Within hours, she resigned.
My only question is how Dr. Duwve could have possibly not been informed of the circumstances surrounding the job before she accepted.
But Ohio is looking for a health director again, one who is brave enough to stand up to the pro-Covid lunatic fringe...and is willing to accept the constraints put upon him or her by Ohio’s devolved legislature.
Edited because I forgot to source the Dr. Duwve story from which I pulled the quote.
