Dear Editor:


I just want to put this out there for any business being threatened by ANY official.

If you feel your civil rights have been violated, you may contact the DOJ CRIMINAL CIVIL RIGHTS DIVISION and file a criminal complaint against those individuals. If proven, this is punishable by fine and or imprisonment.


We live in the U.S.A. NOT the U.S.S.R.! When we let people shred the constitution over one reason, no matter the justification, you open the door for them to do it elsewhere. No one is saying the virus isn't real. I personally know people who got sick and even died. In my opinion though, there's much more going on than just the virus.


As far as Christian County; I was told the Sheriff and States attorney will not enforce the governors "mandates". I believe we need to take common sense precautions like cough or sneeze into your arm not your hands or openly, wash your hands frequently, wash or use sanitizer when touching surfaces out in public like credit card key pads etc... 


One thing we do not need is to give our freedoms away so easily. People have fought, bleed and died for us to have them. Let's honor them by following the constitution and use a wise and sound approach to our problems.


Thank you,

Ray E. Koonce

Christian County Board Member Dist. #3
