Police unions across the country look to stop mandatory vaccination among officers

According to a new report from Yahoo News “As the White House steps up its push to increase vaccinations, police unions across the country are protesting local mandates, despite the number of COVID-19 deaths among officers.”

Per the report “Last month, when Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago said there would “absolutely” be a vaccine mandate for city employees, the local police union promised legal action.”

Fraternal order of Police Union president, John Catanzara said “It cannot be mandated. It’s that simple. Our members don’t want to be mandated to do anything like that.

“This vaccine has no studies for long-term side effects or consequences. None. To mandate anybody to get that vaccine, without that data as a baseline, amongst other issues, is a ‘Hell, no’ for us,” he continued.

“We’re in America, g*ddamn it. We don’t want to be forced to do anything. Period. This ain’t Nazi f***ing Germany, [where they say], ‘Step into the f***ing showers. The pills won’t hurt you.’ What the f***?” he added.
