Anti-Vax NYC Court Officer In Charge Of Enforcing Face Mask Rules (But Didn’t Wear One) Dies Of Something

The New York Daily News reports:

A Manhattan court security lieutenant who was ardently opposed to taking the vaccine has died of COVID-19, the Daily News has learned. Lt. Stephen Shyti, 63, died around 5:45 p.m. Tuesday after spending more than two weeks on a ventilator, officials said.

Multiple sources said the veteran court lieutenant and father of two was outspoken in his opposition to taking the vaccine and did not wear a mask at work. He was responsible for enforcing mask-wearing and other health and safety measures.

Dennis Quirk, the court officers’ union president, said Shyti’s beliefs about the COVID-19 vaccine were the result of work at Ground Zero in the aftermath of 9/11. “He had total mistrust in the government and wouldn’t get the vaccine.”
