JUST IN: State Troopers To Resign, Instead Of Facing Disciplinary Actions Over COVID Vaccine Mandate
(Tea Party 247) – Unless freedom-loving Americans are willing to stand up and say “no more,” tyranny in America will continue. Not only will the mandates never go away but they’ll continue to get worse and more tyrannical.
The more freedom we give up, the more tyrannical, power-hungry elected officials will take.
In Massachusetts, dozens of state troopers have handed in their resignation papers in a show of unity against the state’s vaccine mandates, as reported by the State Police Associate of Massachusetts (SPAM) union.
The state’s mandate requires employees of the executive department to be vaccinated by October 17 or face consequences.
While around 80% of the state troopers are already vaccinated, roughly 20% remain non-compliant and at risk of losing their jobs come this month’s deadline.
Though it isn’t fully clear what the “consequences” are should troopers refuse to get the jabs, an August press release suggested it could result in termination.
SPAM President Michael Cherven said in a statement that some troopers wanted to be reassigned to different departments that offered other alternatives to the vaccines like masking or weekly testing but for those who handed in their resignation letters, it doesn’t appear that is an option.
The unconstitutional mandate was put in place by Republican Governor Charlie Baker in August when he issued an executive order demanding that all executive department employees get fully vaccinated by Oct. 17.
Baker insists the vaccines are the best way to protect the most people despite the fact that they have yet to actually stop the spread and transmission of COVID-19.
What’s even more tyrannical is that the Governor issued the mandate for everyone working at home too. He also did not provide any kind of alternative for those working from home.
The SPAM union, which represents around 1,800 members, attempted to stop this mandate from going into effect for their officers but their request was denied by a judge.
The union released a statement saying that they are “asking for” the “same basic accommodations that countless other departments have provided to their first responders, and to treat a COVID related illness as a line of duty injury.”
It went on to further state:
To date, dozens of troopers have already submitted their resignation paperwork, some of whom plan to return to other departments offering reasonable alternatives such as mask wearing and regular testing. The State Police are already critically short staffed and acknowledged this by the unprecedented moves which took troopers from specialty units that investigate homicides, terrorism, computer crimes, arson, gangs, narcotics, and human trafficking, and returned them to uniformed patrol.
The vaccine mandates are going to result in major staffing shortages all around the country in healthcare and community safety. As Cherven stated, the State Police of Massachusetts is already “critically short staffed.”
The pandemic is so deadly and dangerous that we can, apparently, afford to lose nurses, police officers and other “front line workers” in mass numbers.
Front line “heroes” to “zeroes.” COVID is a scam. It’s time to wake up now.
