Is it me, or is “failure to comply” simply a phrase no one from the US government should ever utter…?

I was in the airport and an pre-recorded announcement told me I had to wear my mask. “Failure to comply” would be met with really bad things that only a large, arrogant, and bloated government could do to someone.

In the United States, where the government works for the people, it seems like “failure to comply” is a phrase best left off the messaging.
