A 42-year-old father of six from Iowa will spend the next 10 years in prison after being convicted of a Class C forcible felony for defending himself against a “mask Nazi” who assaulted him in an eyewear store.
Shane Michael says he was “shoulder-checked” and “poked” in the stomach by Mark Dinning, a Branch Covidian who confronted Michael on Nov. 11 inside a Vision 4 Less store in Des Moines.
Even though there was no mask mandate in place, Dinning felt the need to try to force his mask fetish on Michael through assault, to which Michael responded in kind by spitting on Dinning.
Michael was reportedly wearing a mask at the time and pulled it down to spit on Dinning, who accused Michael of wearing his mask “incorrectly.” This is how the altercation started with Dinning as the aggressor.
“If I have it, you have it!” Michael reportedly shouted at Dinning, who refused to mind his own business in the store and instead decided to be a mask Nazi.
The situation devolved from there with more physical altercations that resulted in injuries. Dinning pressed charges against Michael and ultimately won in court, illustrating how the Branch Covidian cult has successfully embedded itself within the judicial system.
Even though Dinning reportedly bit Michael on the arm during the altercation, the jury sided with him over Michael, presumably because it felt as though Dinning was just trying to “stay safe” by harassing Michael over his “correct” wearing of a mask.
Michael was initially offered a Class D felony charge plea deal that would have only resulted in a deferred judgment and two years of probation. Michael rejected this on principle and was ultimately punished with a 10-year prison sentence for an upgraded Class C felony.
Prosecutors were out for blood, in other words, presumably mask Nazis themselves, and did everything they could to destroy Michael’s life. They were apparently successful.
Michael’s attorney, meanwhile, has filed a motion for a new trial, arguing that the state failed to turn over video footage from the store, as well as body camera footage from the officer who responded to the scene. Said footage was not allowed into evidence for some unknown reason.
According to Michael’s father Dennis, his son rejected the plea deal offered by prosecutors because he had acted in self-defense against Dinning, who should have kept his mouth shut and minded his own business rather than behave like a mask Nazi.
Michael also has asthma and thus cannot wear a mask otherwise he might suffocate. His father says if he had been forced by Dinning or a store employee to cover his mouth and nose as demanded, he would have been unable to breathe, which might have killed him.
“And there was no mask mandate in place,” the father added. “It was just a request by Vision 4 Less that people wear a mask, and he was.”
The 10-year prison sentence Michael received is way beyond any “crime” he may have committed, which shows that this is all just vindictive Branch Covidian tyranny once again rearing its ugly head. Michael’s wife, meanwhile, is trying to figure out how she is going to survive and get by without her husband by her side.
“He’s my rock. He’s my protector,” she is quoted as saying. “I don’t know what I’m going to do without him. I’m lost without him.”
Wearing a face mask, by the way, defies all credible science concerning the Chinese Virus. It has repeatedly been proven to be both dangerous and ineffective.
