On Wednesday, December 30, a man told Jackson County Sheriff’s Office dispatch personnel that his constitutional rights had been violated and his grandfather fought in the military for his freedoms and he wasn’t going to allow them to be taken away.

The man was complaining about his displeasure with an employee at Levis in the Tanger Outlets Center, Steven B. Tanger Blvd., Commerce. The employee denied the complainant entry into the store because the complainant refused to wear a mask.

The man stated genocide had been committed against his family and that he would not tolerate communist actions against him. He stated he was a barber and currently “cuts hair for lots of law enforcement officers in this county as well as an FBI agent’s and that they were afraid of the direction this country was heading as well.”

JCSO personnel advised the man’s statements seemed hostile at times but he did not directly threaten anyone at any time.

He was advised that the Tanger Outlets were private property and he could be denied entry for no reason at all.
