Police Deliver Swift Justice to ‘Terrorists’ Threatening To Infect Us With Coronavirus
Police are slapping anyone who threatens to infect others with coronavirus with serious charges ranging from felony 'terroristic threat' to assault.
An attention-seeking 18 year old who posted videos on Snapchat saying she is coronavirus positive and would intentionally “infect every mother—-er in Carrolton, Texas” met swift Texas justice. Lorraine Maradiaga now faces felony charges for making ‘terroristic threats.’ This wannabe bad girl learned quickly that justice never sleeps in Texas – even during a pandemic. And she’s not the only one.
Snapchat Videos Show Woman At Walmart After Coronavirus Test
18-year-old Lorraine Maradiaga shared videos of herself allegedly getting her coronavirus test results at a drive-up testing facility.
In the video, Maradiaga is told to isolate at home but instead she went to Walmart. She rants about intentionally infecting others with the deadly disease.
“I’m here at Walmart about to infest every (expletive), because if I’m going down, all you (expletive) are going down,” Maradiaga is heard saying in her videos.
The young woman was taunting others on social media who said they would report her to authorities.
Her intent appears to be clear: 1) she wanted attention and 2) she planned to get it by harassing and scaring people with the threat of contracting coronavirus.

Online sleuths pieced together some of Maradiaga’s videos.
They are appalling and show a woman who has no regard for the safety and well-being of other people.
Not only is this 18 year old a heartless person lacking in morals, but she is also a dumb criminal. The videos in the tweets below will likely help to convict her.

Massachusetts Man Spits And Coughs On Produce Amidst Coronavirus Pandemic
Sadly, this was not the only case of someone trying to cause alarm and panic during the coronavirus pandemic.
A 65-year-old man in a Kingston, Massachusetts Stop and Shop was seen spitting and coughing on produce. Other shoppers wrestled the man to the ground after he began fighting with shoppers and employees.
The suspect was then taken to the hospital for evaluation. Thankfully, it is believed that he does not has coronavirus.
Police said the Duxbury man faces charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault and battery, and destruction of property. He is also banned from the Kingston Stop and Shop.
Take a look at the patrons wrestling the offender to the ground:
Last, But Not Least, Florida
Not to be outdone, a Florida man is also facing charges for spitting and coughing on police officers. The man spat and coughed on St. Petersburg officers responding to a series of domestic violence calls.
James Jamal Curry, 31, was charged by Tampa Federal prosecutors with “perpetrating a biological weapons hoax.” The charge carries up to a five-year sentence.
According to court papers, Curry said, “I have corona, bitch, and I’m spreading it around.”
It’s clear that the challenging times we’re in right now don’t bring out the best in everyone. We remain grateful for the first responders who put it all on the line to keep us safe.
Thankfully in these cases, justice will be served.
