The Supreme Court made yet another surprise rejection today.
Justice Gorsuch was presented with a request to block the mandate requiring masks on airplanes.
Gorsuch rejected the case, which will leave the mask mandate in place.
All Over the Place
I honestly thought Gorsuch would take this case simply to get it decided.
Instead, he has referred the case to the full court.
Gorsuch gave no reason for his declination.
The order was signed by Joe Biden to ensure the TSA required all passengers for air travel to wear masks.
With new data on face masks out and growing tension between passengers and travelers, it would seem like we need to see this issue decided one way or another.
This specific case is a sore spot for many, as it was filed by a father on behalf of his 4-year-old boy that has autism.
Parents with special needs children have been very concerned about this issue, yet it will go unresolved, at least for now.
Gorsuch more than likely looked at a previous rejection by Justice Roberts, who faced a similar request by another group.
None of us like wearing these masks, but putting them on special needs children at very low risk just seems idiotic to me.
I have been on planes where this came into play, with the parents facing a very challenging situation to keep the child under control and calm.
On one flight, there was an autistic child who had a helmet on simply because he freaked out the moment the mask went on his face and literally started bashing his head up against the seat in protest.
The court needs to step up and do what is right… end this mandate, at least for children, especially special needs children.
Do you think children should be forced to wear masks on planes?
