Forget about the guy in the green shirt. Arrest the clown in the black jacket for not wearing a mask. He must be a Republican, for he does not care who he infects or kills. It's his freedom to do so! If you get a coronavirus infection from him, your health care costs will many many times that of the mower. The would-be thief is showing far more social responsibility than he is.
