University of Arizona Student Fined for Appearing in Photo Without a Mask

“says he created a school-approved 9-11 memorial and took his hat and mask off briefly for a photo out of respect”

The authoritarian nature of some schools with regard to the pandemic is just out of control. This is the stuff of dystopian literature.

KOLD News reports:

University of Arizona student says he feels ‘singled out’ after being fined over a maskless photo

A University of Arizona student is speaking out after his appeal to the Dean of Students over a maskless photo was denied.

Jacob Orsay was fined $250 under the “COVID-19 sanction” after a photo of him and several others posing without masks was reported. He also had to take a $90 personal responsibility workshop.

Orsay says he created a school-approved 9-11 memorial and took his hat and mask off briefly for a photo out of respect.

While five others in the photo were also not wearing a mask, Orsay says he was the only one to receive a fine. The eight others in the photo all got warnings.

Orsay, who calls himself an “outspoken Hispanic”, says he feels singled out.

Dammit. Now I have to compute the intersectionality score of a young, Hispanic 9-11 activist at a purple-state liberal college.

I’m not sure I would want to attend a school that assumes to itself the authority to impose a monetary “fine” to say nothing of forcing me to pay for my own indoctrination.

Yeah, ya wanna have a picture where people can remember you.

I refuse to have my picture taken with a d*** mask on.
