The Tucson Police Department is seeking information regarding a man who allegedly stole almost 30 coronavirus test kits on Friday.
The unknown man entered the El Rio Health Center just before closing time disguised as a delivery driver. When employees returned to work the next day, they realized that 29 coronavirus testing kits were missing from the facility.
It’s hard to imagine anything that could be more destructive to testing for the viral disease in its hour of epidemic. The tests the man stole are going to be worthless, anyway- results from samples can’t be obtained without private laboratory equipment the test burglar almost certainly won’t have access to.
Members of the community responded with fury to find that a man had singlehandedly harmed coronavirus preparation effots by stealing test kits.
Police describe the suspect as a Hispanic man, approximately 5’10 in height, and with a dark beard. He left the health center in a Dodge Charger. If arrested, he could face even more severe criminal charges that mundane burglary. Arizona’s Governor Doug Ducey has declared a statewide state of emergency on account of the coronavirus epidemic.
There is no such thing as a home test for the novel coronavirus. If the man tries to sell the test kits, presumably at outrageous prices, he’ll be peddling medical technology that is essentially useless.
Arizona incurred its 100th diagnosis of the Chinese coronavirus on Saturday, after the disease was slow to begin spreading in the state.
It’s possible the desert state, known for the warmest climate in North America, could be spared the very worst of the epidemic on the basis of its hot weather.
Billionaire Mike Bloomberg Pays $16 Million in Fines of Black and Hispanic Felons to Enable Them to Vote
Billionaire and former New York City Mayor has raised $16 million dollars to pay off outstanding fines of Black and Hispanic felons in Florida, according to reporting from Axios on Tuesday. Florida restricts the voting rights of convicted criminals until they’ve paid off fines levied for their crimes by the criminal justice system.
It appears that Bloomberg’s fine repayment initative was only available to Black and Hispanic felons. Axios reported that to qualify for Bloomberg’s money, applicants had to have outstanding fines of less than $1,500, be already registered to vote, and to be Black or Latino.
White felons need not apply.
The program has reportedly already cleared the fines of 32,000 felons in the state, enabling them to vote in the election. It erases the punitive aspect of the court system’s fines, which were levied in the first place in order to require convicted criminals to personally make amends for their actions.
Bloomberg’s felon bailout giveaway is legally questionable, and Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has requested that Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody investigate what he’s doing. If he’s paying felons to vote for any one specific candidate, Bloomberg is in violation of campaign finance rules and could be liable to serve jail time .

“The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no American should be denied that right,” said a Bloomberg spokesperson when asked about the fine repayment initiative. But it doesn’t seem as if the failed Democratic primary candidate is willing to buy back the voting rights of individuals who might be less inclined to vote for Joe Biden in November.
Bloomberg already tried and failed to buy the nomination in the Democratic primary, and now he’s trying to buy the crucial swing state of Florida for Joe Biden. Corrupt oligarchs should not be allowed to abuse the political system with impunity.
