KY Man Says His Anti-Mask Threat To School Superintendent Was Misunderstood


A Kentucky man charged with threatening Jefferson County Public Schools Superintendent Marty Pollio over the district’s mask mandate says his comments were taken out of context. Bradley Linzy is accused of confronting Pollio as the superintendent was leaving the building, telling him his life was over.

Linzy told WAVE-TV that he wasn't threatening Pollio's life but instead said, “Your life is over as it pertains to your career, sir." Linzy says he is concerned about the mask mandate because his 10-year-old daughter is on the autism spectrum and masks make it extra difficult for her to read emotions. He is charged with terroristic threatening and disorderly conduct.
