An anti-masker who assaulted a store worker was arrested mid-rant, and the video is pretty satisfying.

It's bound to improve your day...

But it just goes to show how many people around the world don't believe the benefits that face masks really hold.

Here's the full story...

Now, wearing facemasks has been a point of debate for over a year...

Because so many people have been fiercely arguing over whether masks are necessary or not on social media.

It's well and truly been dividing opinions online.

Those in full support of wearing face masks have been saying it should have been enforced sooner than it has, while others think masks are a way to "control us" or are just simply ineffective at protecting us from the virus.

But, as the months have slowly trickled by...

More and more people have been joining the anti-mask movement, believing wearing a mask during the global pandemic is "against their human rights."

Studies have shown there could be genuine physiological reasons as to why some people don't want to wear a face covering.

"When faced with uncertain situations over which we have no control, we tend to exercise it wherever we can, so we feel safe," one expert said, according to HuffPost. "Some will feel safer exercising their control over not wearing a mask, while others will feel safer exercising their control to wear one."

Other experts blame mixed messages from those in power which, we must say, explains a lot.

"The mixed messages we’ve all received are probably the main culprit for non-mask wearing. Inconsistent recommendations, along with historic polarization of political parties, magnify a common mistrust of government mandates."

But, whatever the reasons, masks have become an extremely polarizing topic...

With "anti-mask" protests increasing all around the world.

We've sadly seen many of these protests here in the United States...

Which has put thousands at danger of contracting the virus and spreading it even more than it already has been.

And the latest comes from an anti-masker Karen in Texas.


And she got the shock of her life when she was arrested...

The bodycam footage shows Kara Bell lecturing 2 officers on her rights...

Until they eventually lose patience.

The incident occurred on April 7, when police were called to Nordstrom Rack...

Bell had tried to enter a changing room without a mask and shoved a worker out the way for objecting, even resorting to calling the corporate office.

Classic.

However, when police showed up, Bell insisted it was she who was assaulted...

"It's my God-given right to be here on this planet, and you cannot tell me otherwise - correct?" Bell can be heard saying.

Bell even goes on to say the Nordstrom employee was actually racist...

"There was also another woman without a mask -- isn't that interesting how she only picked me? She only picked me, the white person. Not the Black person wearing a mask. Do you think it's a racist thing? I don't know."

"We're not here to talk about race," the female officer replies.

"Well you know what? It kinda seems like it's a racist thing when the Black woman doesn't have a mask on, but she comes after the white woman."

As she refuses to cooperate the officer quietly lets her know that she already knows her name...

"How did you know my name was Kara Bell?" she demands.

"Because I heard you say it," the officer explains. "You said it on the phone when you called 911."

"Don't Lie! You are lying to me! You are lying!"

She then starts explaining law enforcement to the law enforcement officers.

Youtube

"First of all, I don't have to identify myself. Actually, I don't. It's called 'common law'. You should read up on it. I do not. Okay?"

"I am a woman of God. This is much my right, as much as it is yours. This is my land as much as it is yours. I did not sign up for this. I am a Christian woman of God. And you are not going to put your disgusting rules on me, that is false, and not true. I will not have it. Do you understand that? I will. Not. Have it."

"I'm sick of being bullied, I'm sick of being lied to, and it's not going to happen anymore. Do you understand? The CDC just released...."

Finally, after a good 5 minutes, the officer steps in putting her in handcuffs.

Youtube

"Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. OH MY GOSH!" is how the lecture ends.

Bell was given an assault citation, a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by up to $500.

She told officers she wanted to press charges against the Nordstrom employee and completed a victim statement to that effect. All charges against the employee were later dropped.
