And so do most Israelis. If it's dangerous to go without a mask and if it is sakanas nefashos then one has to wear one - yes sun or no sun.
In my opinion a 13yr old should be given a fine if that's the law. But since fines aren't being given to majority of offenders it's totally unfair and disgusting to pick her out just because she is Chareidi.
a 13 year old should not be getting a fine just for not wearing a mask, if she would be told by police to put on and she would laugh them in the face would be a total different story, she’s a kid after all.

If it's proven to be dangerous to go out without a mask then she should get fined.
After all who will pay the fine? Her parents.
It's their responsibility that their children should wear masks. If someone not wearing a mask is a danger to the public it should make no difference how old they are.
Will a shop not charge a parent for damage that their child did in a shop?

You're making it sound like she was walking around with a loaded gun.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Preach. We're talking about a 13 year old here, not a 5 year old. Old enough to understand to wear a mask and old enough to get fined. I don't get the whole uproar.

When there are 1800 cases a day in Israel, a bulk in the area she was pulled over to warrant a lockdown in that area shortly thereafter, yes, she is threatening public health by going around without a mask.

Its not about the fine, its about the way that they did it. When I was fresh out of law school I worked in the Family Court Bureau and spent a few months prosecuting JDs. When the police are dealing with non-violent crimes they treat children differently than adults. They don't detain 13 yr old kids for health code violations. If you saw the video you would understand the uproar.

I saw it. The uproar was that there were thousands of secular people walking around the streets without masks and not getting fined and the police had to fine a Charedi girl.  It is outrageous to hold children to a higher standard then adults. But if they were ticketing those people I would have no problem enforcing theses laws on children.

Any evidence of that? And yes, Ive been in the Yerushalayim sun -- and worn a mask.
I didn't notice anything crazy.

Whatever.
I want saying she shouldnt be wearing a mask. I was justifying her pulling it down to take a drink

Did you see the full video or an edited version? Did you notice any adults walking past without masks on their nose? Did you notice that the infant wasnt wearing a mask (as per health guidelines)?

I am with you on that one. My point was about children wearing masks not Batya Getter specifically. I was responding to this post.
She is 13 years old, police should not be detaining a 13 year old walking a baby stroller.

Not saying that it was OK that she was not wearing a mask and have no idea how long she had the mask off, but police officers should not be detaining kids.
