Chris Koos has the city of Normal shut down due to the coronavirus.
Well, most of Normal anyway.
Chris Koos left his bike shop “Vitesse Cycle Shop” open. He declared it essential business.
Earlier this week there was a protest to re-open the city and allow residents to work.
Instead of listening to the protesters Mayor Koos mocked them.
Via BLN News:
In response to citizens peaceably protesting yesterday-
Normal Il mayor taunted “nonessential” struggling citizens and business owners while his business is OPEN. The banner proves he has NO compassion for his own community. He knew people were coming to protest, his message to those NOT ALLOWED to work: his middle finger!
Worse – Koos told the police to fine or arrest nonessential citizens who dare to earn a living.
Koos was brazen enough to post this picture on his Facebook page, minus the text of course. This tyrant is proud of himself!
