Lawrence C. Mackin Jr., city councilor for Braintree's District 6, says it's time to bring back the old days of crowded stores, large family get togethers and just freedom. In a long rant, he says that because the governor of California is a hypocrite and because the media never tell you that most people survive Covid-19, restrictions don't work except to make things worse.
One of his Facebook followers suggested he take a trip to a local hospital and talk to some of the doctors and nurses there about his ideas on the pandemic.
According to the latest state statistics, Braintree had 266 new Covid-19 cases over a two-week period. Since the start of the pandemic, 120 Braintree residents have died from the virus, according to town statistics.
Mackin won election last fall.
In 2015, his father, Leonard C. Mackin, Sr., wrote a novel about true-blue American police officers taking the country back from the Obama-led private armies and Islamists who were enslaving the country and killing cops to create a Chinese-controlled Islamic dictatorship.
