The Seattle Police Department has lost roughly 300 officers since last year’s push to defund. It may lose 200 more officers over Mayor Jenny Durkan’s COVID vaccine mandate...

Under the vaccine mandate, city workers who do not get the shots will be terminated. The SPD, already stretched dangerously thin, cannot stand to lose any more officers...

...some officers with the SPD do not believe the vaccines is necessary to do their job. Officers have been in the field for the last 17 months without a vaccine. Others don’t think the government has the right to data on private medical decisions, even if they may be vaccinated. It’s simply not the government’s business, some argue...

...If even a small portion of the officers are terminated due to the mandate, the effect would be catastrophic.


So, what's Big Brother going to do?

It seems that blue state politicians love being fascists. But, sometimes they go too far.

FREEDOM!!!!!

    Good. It'll take a while, but those cops will be replaced with responsible, selfless people who take the pandemic seriously.

    My fully vaccinated son became a cop because he wants to help people. Part of helping people is to not infect them with a deadly virus.

    I admire your son's attitude but many, particularly members of minority communities, are still unconvinced of the efficacy of the vaccine.

    They're so ineffective that Israel is now planning to give four of them to their people.

    One thing about life in our representative republic is that each citizen possesses freedom to make these choices for themselves. You can't require others to behave based on what you believe.

    Good grief you're thick-headed. It's not about "belief", it's about science, which is constantly being revised based on the latest science.

    From the link at the bottom:

    If you get infected, being vaccinated helps.

    The good news is that among Israel's serious infections on Thursday of this week, according to Health Ministry data, the rate of serious cases among unvaccinated people over age 60 (178.7 per 100,000) was nine times more than the rate among fully vaccinated people of the same age category, and the rate of serious cases among unvaccinated people in the under-60 crowd (3.2 per 100,000) was a little more than double the rate among vaccinated people in that age bracket.

    The bad news, doctors say, is that half of Israel's seriously ill patients who are currently hospitalized were fully vaccinated at least five months ago. Most of them are over 60 years old and have comorbidities. The seriously ill patients who are unvaccinated are mostly young, healthy people whose condition deteriorated quickly.

    Not me, Donna.

    I've said several times that I got vaxxed as soon as I could.

    I even ran down an old lady pushing a walker to get to the front of the line.

    But, I am sympathetic to people, often people from minority communities, who don't trust big brother, and the assurances that government provided vaccines are good for them.

    Don't be so dang sanctimoniously judgmental! Try walkin a mile in someone else's shoes for once!

    Oh, and I still don't think that the science is as convincing as you BELIEVE it is.

    "I've said several times that I got vaxxed as soon as I could."

    I know, I know, I know. And that has nothing to do with what I wrote.

    You obviously aren't interested in beating COVID which claimed the life of our apartment maintenance guy yesterday and a good friend of mine is fighting right now.

    You obviously aren't interested in beating COVID which claimed the life of our apartment maintenance guy yesterday and a good friend of mine is fighting right now.

    That's not fair.

    I've been vaccinated. I'll get a booster or boosters if and when I can. I'm glad that po and you are vaxxed. I wish your son would be.

    I believe, as of this moment, that the best thing for us would be for everyone who can to be vaxxed would be vaxxed, but we are a free people.

    It's a matter of deeply held principle for me.

    I do care about losing my mother, and my uncle and your apartment maintenance guy but freedom is what defines the essence of America.

    Do you think that as someone who was quarantined, that was an unconstitutional infringement on your freedom?


  9. by Curt_Anderson on September 7, 2021 10:26 am
    HtS, freedom is obviously a concept you don't understand.

    Freedom only works in cooperative society. One person's rights end when they restrict another person's rights. I have the right to run through the park, but not the right to run into and knock over other people. A person has the right to be in public but not the right to infect others with a lethal virus.

    Some activities that you believe are rights are actually privileges. Nobody has a "right" to employment at a particular business or governmental agency. It's privilege to be employed by the Seattle Police Department. There is no right to fly in a passenger airliner without a mask. There is no right to travel to certain countries that take vaccinations and Covid seriously. There is no right to be unvaccinated and endanger patients in a hospital or nursing home.

    For the people who composed the Bill of Rights, freedom means, precisely, to limit the intrusion of government into the lives of citizens.

    It's hard to imagine the first citizens' of this country's notion of freedom applying more directly than to the attempts of Big Bro Dem politicians to intrude into people's lives through vaccine mandates.

    From our earliest history, we've limited the power of government over individual freedom.

    Can the guy who owns the store I worked in require me to be vaxxed to work for him? That's one question.

    Can President Clouseau demand citizens be vaxxed? Our Bill of Rights is aimed directly at him.

    "Can the guy who owns the store I worked in require me to be vaxxed to work for him? That's one question."

    YES. That's already happening.

    "Can President Clouseau demand citizens be vaxxed?"

    NO. Although an early 20th century SCOTUS decision, Jacobson vs. Massachusetts, makes it a "maybe".

    Hts, do you think that when you and Evie were quarantined, it was an infringement on your Constitutional rights?


  13. by HatetheSwamp on September 9, 2021 4:50 am

    Hts, do you think that when you and Evie were quarantined, it was an infringement on your Constitutional rights?

    Of course not.

    We bought an apartment in a privately owned community. If we disagreed with the policy, we could have objected and taken our concerns to the people who set policy and community standards.

    Or,

    We could have sold our apartment back and moved.

    "But, I am sympathetic to people, often people from [...]" -pb

    You are sympathetic to stupid people. Which is natural, as you are one yourself.

    Why do the stupid people like you think that exercising their constitutional rights means they have a special dispensation to go about endangering the lives of others in their community?

    I am hoping that as a stupid person yourself, you will have some special insight into how their selfish sociopathy works...

    Like me? Ba!

    I ran down an old lady pushing a walker to be vaxxed as soon as I could be.

    But, I also know that Americans are supported by a Bill of Rights that fascists want to negate.

    You know, if you couldn't answer the question, you could have simply passed on the opportunity. Rather than blathering nonsense that demonstrates your ignorance.
