That is very poor science.  Good science is repeatable and falsifiable.

The sheriff's office said during the COVID-19 pandemic, the vast majority of service calls that deputies have been responding to involve domestic disputes and crisis intervention.

Thank god we have all these guns to keep everyone safer from their loved ones.

What's truly frightening is how many people are going around every day (in normal times) just teetering on the brink of a meltdown and how little it takes to set them off.

We could be saying "everything is just going to be ok if we all do this" instead of "we are all going to die if we don't do this" maybe people with underlying mental issues wouldn't do stupid shiat like this...and hoarding.

Because it's helpful to know the actual infection rate. What if they both had contracted it?

Then they get added to the list of covid-19 fatalities.

Well, duh!  They were both instantly cured by the lead injection.  Perfect treatment.  Somebody, tell Donnie.  Maybe he'll personally try it as a preventative therapy.

Because tracking the virus progress is important.  Also, showing that Triggerman was a moron is a beneficial side effect.

Nah.  They'd still be infectious.  In China, they burn your corpse on street corners with the trash.

Well, at least they have the decency to use flammable materials to make sure you burn, unlike here where they just make you die slowly and painfully as the flames slowly get throiugh your flesh and ignite your fat.

Banning guns is just cultural appropriation of British beliefs, and an attempt to circumcise our rights.

Will County is the county directly south of Cook - the dregs of the far flung south Chicago suburbs.

Probably standard orders, test every body coming in the morgue to make sure your death stats from the virus are correct. We know that the majority of cases aren't getting tested in the US, and that some folks are doing at home, so test every body to see if they're a SARS-2 related fatally. It's easier to do a blanket order than day "except violent deaths you think are unrelated" and have it applied correctly.

Yes, add an existential threat on top of economic ruin and loss of social outlets; and compress it into a single house and domestic violence is going to explode.

You're going to see a lot more of these on top of the usual instances.  Divorces too from otherwise happy couples.

I made it a point when we first went into lock-down that I treat my wife like we were first dating.  Lots of back rubs, little gifts, and gratitude.  These could also be the last few days we have together.
