Democrat Rep Says Gretchen Whitmer’s Policy to Put COVID-19 Patients in Nursing Homes is ‘Most Idiotic Thing We Could Come Up With’
Michigan state representative Leslie Love (D-Detroit) is enraged because of Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s incomprehensible decision to house COVID-19 patients inside of nursing homes around vulnerable elderly individuals who are most likely to die because of the disease.
Love’s mother is confined to a nursing home. She tested positive for the disease after COVID-19 patients were being warehoused in nursing homes for weeks. She believes this policy is the “most idiotic thing we could come up with” to deal with the negative ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Why the state of Michigan has chosen this path is beyond me,” Love said. “It seems like the most idiotic thing we could come up with.”
State Senator Pete Lucido (R-Shelby Township) is also enraged at the deadly policy that the governor has mandated that quite possibly has sent countless elderly individuals to their untimely graves.
“It’s reckless disregard for human life,” Lucido said. “It’s negligent to allow it to continue, but it’s intentional now at this point.”
Big League Politics reported last week about how a 20-year-old COVID patient was quarantined around elderly people in a nursing home despite the fact that he was severely mentally ill and had a pending felony charge:
Shocking developments have come to light in the case of a young black man who brutally battered an elderly military veteran at a nursing home in a video that went viral on social media.
The father of the assailant is speaking out, saying that his son suffers from serious mental illness and was quarantined in a nursing home with at-risk elderly people after testing positive for COVID-19.
Kimberly Craig of WXYZ 7 ABC broke the insane news that shows how the most vulnerable are being put at risk due to the decisions of government bureaucrats and the so-called first responders.
“He has issues and for them to put him in a facility like that, nothing good was going to happen,” the suspect’s father said to 7 Action News.
In addition to having a history of mental illness, the assailant has an assault case that is pending in Washtenaw County. This highly dangerous individual was put around vulnerable people who he could brutalize as well as possibly infect with COVID-19.
The assailant’s father said that his son had been taken to a group home for supervision, but had a mental health relapse as he was hearing voices in his head. When he was taken to the University of Michigan Hospital for supervision as a result, he was diagnosed with COVID-19. That is when he was taken to the Westwood Nursing Center where he would commit his savage assault.
It is unknown whether or not the nursing home called the police to alert them about the assault that had taken place in their facilities…
“He never should have been housed.. quarantined with the victim that he eventually assaulted. That should have never happened,” the father said. “Someone dropped the ball.”
The person who dropped the ball may have been Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who issued a directive that forced COVID-19 patients to be housed in nursing homes.
Blood is on Gov. Whitmer’s hands for her mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic, and even certain Democrats cannot support her failed leadership any longer.
