On April 24, 2020, Michigan’s Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced that she would be extending her stay-at-home order through May 15th.
During her press conference, the overreaching governor announced that her new executive order would remove some of the draconian and senseless restrictions in her previous executive order, like golfing outdoors or giving citizens the ability to buy gardening or home improvement items from local stores, but her new executive order would include forcing every person in an enclosed space to wear a face covering.
Here’s a screenshot of Governor Whitmer’s tweet, reminding citizens that it’s part of her executive order to cover their faces when entering enclosed public spaces.
On Friday, 43-year-old father of nine and Family Dollar Store security guard Calvin James Munerlyn, lost his life trying to uphold Governor Whitmer’s controversial face-covering executive order.
Calvin Munerlyn is being praised by community members who remember him for all the ways he gave back to others. At the Madison Academy, where Munerlyn was honored as “Parent of the Year” just days before the shooting, his death is especially felt.
According to NewsOne, Calvin James Munerlyn, a 43-year-old married father of nine, was working at a Family Dollar in Flint, Michigan, on Friday. During his shift, he asked a female customer to cover her face with a mask while inside the store. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Executive Order says that “everyone must wear a mask in all enclosed public spaces to halt the spread of COVID-19.”
Madison Academy Principal Christel Drew told WJRT: “We have four of their children here, two of their other children graduated from Madison Academy, so the Munerlyns are our family,”
Drew said Munlerlyn, who was also known throughout the school as “Duper,” often served the school and its students however he could.
MLive reports – Latryna Sims-Munerlyn, Calvin’s wife, told MLive-The Flint Journal at a Sunday night vigil that her husband had worked as a security guard at the store for a little more than a year, but he’d been in the profession for three decades around the city.
Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton said Munerlyn’s shooting came as the result of a dispute over a woman not wearing a mask in the store.
While two suspects in the shooting remain at large and are being pursued by the Michigan State Police fugitive team, 45-year-old Sharmel L. Teague was arraigned Tuesday, May 5 in Genesee District Court on first-degree murder and felony firearm charges.
Teague is being held in the Genesee County Jail without bond. She faces life in prison on the murder charge.
Whitmer said it’s important for people to keep a level head and do the right things to protect themselves and others as well as remembering the risk for those at work.
During a press conference yesterday, Whitmer offered her condolences to the family, saying: ““It is incredible the people that continue to show up to work to protect everyone else and it is incredibly sad that in this crisis that this life was lost.”
Will the mainstream media report about the senseless death of a 43-year-old father of nine, who would have been alive today if it were not for VP wannabe, Gretchen Whitmer’s executive order that forced him to respond to a customer not wearing a face mask?
