Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

The head of the Chicago branch of the Fraternal Order of Police, John Catanzara, urged members of the union in a video message this week to "hold the line." He told officers not to submit their vaccination statuses, and instead to flood the city with exemption requests on Thursday. "Submit those all on Thursday, give them everything at one time, and that's it," he said. "Do not fill out the portal information," he added, referring to the reporting of vaccination statuses to the city. Officers and other city employees who fail to report their vaccination status by Friday will "be placed in a non-disciplinary, no pay status," according to Mayor Lori Lightfoot's office. Catanzara said that "it's safe to say the city of Chicago will have a police force at 50 percent or less" over the weekend. "Whatever happens because of that manpower issue, that falls at the mayor's doorstep," he said.

Not really.

It is the police officers that have failed to take their "Protect and Serve" oath seriously, and instead wanting to make a political statement.

A public servant encouraging disobedience of public servants to public desire.

Fire him. Fire the next one if they continue on this path.

Clearly the police don't think they're actually public servants but are public overlords.

So f&^% 'em.

CoVid is the #1 killer of police in the US. Why isn't he begging for his officers to get vaxxed?
This truly is bizarro world.
