Well, this is something.
The mayor of Tampa Bay, Jane Castor, isn’t happy with those who attended Super Bowl LV festivities without a mask. In fact, she recently said in a press conference that those individuals who did would be identified and handled by law enforcement.
“I’m proud of our community,” Castor said, via a tweet from Breaking911. “But those few bad actors will be identified, and the Tampa Police Department will handle it.”

If this sounds familiar, it should. It’s eerily similar to her “restaurants that are acting like bars” remarks from back in July of 2020. Sounds like Castor is ready to put a few people on the chopping block.
However, she has expressed no such interest in identifying and handling those who commit other crimes, such as burning or looting. She just wants to bring the hammer down on those who don’t wear masks. I guess we can ignore the executive order from Gov. Ron DeSantis that bans local governments from enforcing mask mandate violations.
