Shawn Marshall Myers, a 42-year-old Maryland man, has been sentenced to one year in prison after being convicted on two counts of failure to comply with an emergency order related to the Wuhan coronavirus (covid-19) lockdown in his state.
Myers reportedly hosted two parties at his home during Republican Gov. Larry Hogan’s statewide lockdown order, which prohibited all gatherings – except for those deemed “protests” – of more than 10 people.
District Court Judge W. Louis Hennessy presided over the trial, determining that Myers is, in fact, guilty of having had too many people at his house at one time. One of the parties supposedly had more than 50 guests present.
Had Myers gathered with these 50 people to “protest” the death of Breonna Taylor, or whichever black person’s name was making the media rounds at that time, by burning down local businesses and torching people’s cars, he would have gotten off scot-free. But because he had people over to his house during the lockdown, Myers will now have to go to prison where, ironically, he could end up “catching” the Wuhan coronavirus (covid-19).
Reports indicate that police were called to Myers’ home during the first party, which he held on March 22. Myers is said to have become argumentative with officers before ultimately agreeing to end the party at their demand.
Myers hosted a second party on March 27, during which police were called again for the same violation. Officers insist that Myers “was argumentative, claiming he and his guests had the right to congregate,” prompting them to arrest him for not complying with their orders.
Myers’ sentencing comes as the Maryland Department of Health is reporting some 123,000 confirmed “cases” of the Wuhan coronavirus (covid-19) throughout the state. There have supposedly been 3,780 deaths in Maryland associated with the Wuhan coronavirus (covid-19).

Meanwhile, an angry mob of “protesters” stormed through Baltimore the other day to “show solidary” with Breonna Taylor, and in the process, spray-painted a federal courthouse “in support of Black Lives Matter.”
Local news outlets are reporting that the mob gathered in Pearlstone Park, near the Maryland Institute College of Art, before marching through the city to destroy property in defense of black lives.
“They said we should protest peacefully, and we’ve got something to say to that,” threatened one man through a bullhorn, after which he screamed, “No justice, no peace!”
None of these “protesters” were arrested by police either for their vandalism or for gathering in a group of more than 10 people, it turns out. In fact, they were praised by The Baltimore Sun for their show of “solidarity” in defense of black people.
The Baltimore Action Legal Team also showed solidarity by providing its phone number to the protesters in case they did have any run-ins with law enforcement.
During their “protest,” these “protesters” reportedly ripped down an American flag from a pole and sprayed graffiti onto buildings declaring, “Hogan is crook,” “BLM,” and “F*** Trump DHS.”
These are the types of gatherings that are both allowed an encouraged in the Disunited States, while otherwise innocent people who simply want to have friends and family members over for dinner are arrested and thrown in prison for committing fake “crimes” in violation of unconstitutional emergency orders that are not law.
“So they let real criminals out of prison because of covid, and then jail honest citizens for not doing what [politicians] wanted,” wrote one commenter at The Hill about the hypocrisy at play in this case.
