A video started circulating Sunday showing a grown man slapping a child on a bus after reprimanding her for not wearing a mask. It is unclear who the man is.

Turning Point USA Founder Charlie Kirk shared the video to his Instagram. In the caption, he wrote “This has gone way too far.”

In the video, the man is towering over the girl, who appears to be partially masked already. Kirk claims in the title of the video that the girl is only 10-years-old. The man points at her and says: “Hey you both have to wear the mask.”

“Why?” the girl asks.

“Because,” the man responds. Suddenly, he slaps her across the face. Another man is seen sitting just across from the girl, but does nothing when the first assaults the girl.

“Stop! Don’t touch!” the girl yelled.

TN Republican introduces legislation to fight opioid shipments into U.S.

Tennessee Republican Representative Diana Harshbarger is attempting to fight the opioid crisis and epidemic through new legislation. Introduced Friday, Harshbarger told the Daily Caller:

The Daily Caller first obtained a copy of the legislation, which addresses what Harshbarger calls a “loophole.” The legislation amends the Controlled Substances Act to specifically require registrants to investigate reports of suspicious orders of controlled substances and halt them if necessary. Under the version of the act currently in force, drug manufacturers and distributors are only required to report suspicious orders of opioids and other controlled substances to the DEA.

“Breaking the opioid epidemic’s stranglehold on our nation is one of my foremost priorities. In an effort to do so, my colleagues and I have identified a loophole that allows distributors to continue order fulfillment, even under suspicious circumstances.”

“My bill closes that loophole with the requirements and guardrails needed to ensure these addictive and potentially dangerous drugs do not fall into the wrong hands while the DEA investigates. The future of our nation depends on us solving the addiction crisis, and this is a step towards that outcome” Harshbarger continued.

The Daily Caller reports:

According to a congressional report released in September, the opioid crisis cost the U.S. $1.5 trillion during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The CDC says 93,331 people died from overdoses in the U.S. in 2020, the highest in 50 years. Opioid-related deaths made up nearly three-quarters of the total.

Pharmaceutical companies have been blamed for contributing to the opioid epidemic. The Department of Justice is currently suing the pharmaceutical company AmerisourceBergen over allegations the company failed to report suspicious orders of opioids to federal law enforcement.
