Nurse Kaci Hickox's neighbor: It's common sense, stick to the quarantine

Negotiations between the state of Maine and nurse Kaci Hickox over the limits of her quarantine ended today with no resolution.  The disagreement was over the guidelines on how and when she could leave her house, while staying away from public places.

Early Thursday morning, Hickox and her boyfriend left their Fort Kent home for a bicycle ride around town, followed by state police.

Police were not authorized to arrest her, the governor saying they were there for her protection and to monitor any interactions with the public.

But Gov. Paul LePage said he would use "the full extent of his authority" to protect public safety.

James Majka lives down the street from Hickox in Fort Kent, Maine, a small town with a population just above 4,000. In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, Majka says Hickox should have remained in quarantine.

    Use your brain and listen to the scientific reports. ALSO, how many people have died in the USA who have been stricken with Obola,, with the exception of the poor man in Texas, who was misdiagnosed?

    This person should have her Nursing license revoked from the state of Maine!! I cannot fathom a professional nurse conducting herself in such a way. She is a disgrace to her profession and a danger at this point.
