Maryland Man Arrested For Violating Order Against Large Gatherings

Shawn Marshall Myers, 41, has been arrested for violating the order of Gov. Larry Hogan in hosting roughly 60 people at a bonfire last Friday night. Myers defied the order to keep any gathering to 10 people or less.

While Meyers might not have coronavirus, he might not be on the top of the list of most people as someone to party with at any time. He is a registered sex offender.

The Charles County Sheriff’s Office disclosed the arrest in a news release and said that, when informed of the order, he agreed to break up the crowd. However, he was still charged with violating the governor’s COVID-19 emergency order. The penalties for breaking the order can result in up to a year in prison and a $5,000 fine.

Myers was previously convicted for carnal knowledge/indecent liberties in Virginia in 2001, according to Maryland’s sex offender registry. In 2011, he was indicted on a first-degree murder charge for the 2004 Thanksgiving shooting of a 23-year-old man. He ended up pleading guilty in a plea deal and received a 15-year suspended sentence for conspiracy to commit robbery.

  1. The government needs the COVID-19 test.

    Government must have “probable cause.”

    If it can prove an impending threat to persons, it has a case for legislating and enforcing legislation to preclude bodily injury and death.

    If the suspect is not infected, passes a test and no threat exists, the government is denying his constitutional rights, which it cannot.

    Plain and simple.

    Freedom of Assembly is the absolute right and freedom of the individual citizen.

    Denying the citizen that right, in the absence of a real or credible threat, is not a right of government.

    The People are the Sovereign – Government is the Subject of the Sovereign.

    Where the —- are the Judicial branch and the Supreme Court?

    Do they perceive and grasp the Constitution in the least?

    They have been superseded by the Secretariat of the Communist Party of America Central Committee.

  2. Signs your drinking may be out of hand:

    -Coming out of a blackout, realizing your talking to Shawn Marshall Myers.
    -Coming out of a blackout, realizing your at a bonfire of 60 people during the time of Covid 19.
    -Thinking Trump’s being impeached during the time he should’ve been focused on pandemic response gives him an excuse for not doing his job.
    -Caring that Tom Brady signed with the Bucs during a football season that may not happen is worth anything. Besides, training camp in Florida when you’re 43 years old? Seriously?!! Brady should’ve left with Gronky after their last Super Bowl together.

    Remember this when someone of the libertardian / black chauvinist / socialworkerist persuasions starts bleating about ‘mass incarceration’. This is the reality of criminal justice in America about 60% of the time.

  4. Stupid haircut. Go all the way bald. Put all the inmates with crown virus in the same facilities. Have robots feed them. If they get real sick let em croak.

    1. Was thinking it over today, now yesterday, and if the lady in PA, wasn’t caught and she did, in fact, have CV19, she could have killed many ppl, thus, perhaps, seeing it your way now, a felony, for the possible killing of another human, if successful. Luckily, she wasn’t

    2. Sentences of probation are very effective toward one end: providing salaried employment for probation officers.

    3. The bet here is that the charge gets dismissed. I’d love to represent a person charged with such an ethereal charge. No prosecutor will want this dog.
