Recall Wheeler
 
2021-09-08 9:29:59 PM  
Yeah, unfortunately that's the case almost everywhere, and it shouldn't be.

FTFA: "The city's police union had pushed back forcefully against the citywide vaccine mandate, warning such a requirement would lead to mass resignations within an already short-staffed force. Willamette Week reported that the police union's lead attorney had argued to the city that officers were opposed "so deeply" that they would leave the force before getting a vaccine."

Way to embrace the ACAB stereotype, assholes.

So a bunch of cops may die...

Who cares if they say they'll resign. They won't. You don't replace good pay and bennies just anywhere.

They don't do anything anyway unless there are lefties to douse with teargas and shoot in the face with impact munitions. Who cares if they quit?

"We'd rather quit than obey orders" isn't a great look for people who expect the rest of us to obey their orders under threat of pain or death.

Is becoming a longhauler from COVID considered a work disability?  Especially if your employer didn't try hard enough to get you vaccinated?
 
2021-09-08 11:53:02 PM  
Any cop who is an anti-vaxxer is almost certainly a right-wing loon and thus almost certainly a racist, bully, and a moron.  They shouldn't have a badge and the authority that comes with it, so this seems like a really good way to purge some bad apples without having to root them out one by one.

It'll be painful dealing with the staffing hit, but you'll end up with better cops if you get over that hump.

Yes, yes, mostest dangerous job in the whole wide world. (from fkn last year)
I suggest the anti vax ones still alive fk right off, services no longer needed.
Only thing that worries me would be the parallel to the de-ba'athification of Iraq.

Blowing out their backs lifting cases of beer in their own garage is a work disability according to cop unions.

They'll be fine.

Because the cops couldn't catch a cold covid.

Vaccine mandates are invariably interpreted by the Scotch-Irish lumpenproletariat as a means to finally drive them out of those American institutions where their bigotry, pig-ignorance and penchant for racial and sexual violence is still tolerated, law enforcement and the military among them.

If that were true, it would be the smartest idea the "establishment" had had in our lifetimes.

I'd say "Fark Ted Wheeler", but he's already being spitroasted without lube or condoms by the FOP and Chief of Police.

"This is such a pattern with the city where the least amount of resistance from their police bureau is met with rolling out the red carpets, caving in immediately and giving them a birthday cake," [Juan Chavez] said.

Any requirement a Portland cop uphold a sworn oath to protect and serve their citizen employers - who pay their unassailable salaries and pensions and union dues - while not acting as an occupying fascist force in violent combat with their employers while ostentatiously aligning themselves with terrorist criminal gangs?

We had some light artillery fire here a few days ago. Made a hell of a racket, but we're still standing.

Bullshiat you can't!  Fark their union.  Unions don't trump (FFS I hate using that word!) public health.  C19 doesn't give a shiat about unions or much of anything else.  It only cares about vaccines and masks.  So fark the cops for fighting this.  You are neither protecting or serving, so GTFO!
 
2021-09-09 2:03:53 AM  
1) Sure, recall Wheeler. Until the weak mayoral system is revamped it won't make a farking difference who the mayor is or isn't.
2) If the Public Employees Retirement System required retired employees to remain in OR to collect full benefits (they could collect a discounted amount if they retire out of state, fine) you'd have a lot fewer cops from Clark county failing at "community policing" in "not their community".
3) The public service unions have jumped on a new requirement (intended for their health and well being) as an opportunity to reopen contracts: "all of Portland's employee unions have asserted the right to bargain over the vaccine mandate." That's pretty craven when you think about it.
4) Coco Donuts and Water Avenue coffee have returned to PDX Smoking Crater and they are farking delicious heroes.

They won't resign. They will simply riot again.
As before, they will make life so unstable, dangerous, and miserable for everyone that people will again cave and bow to their will.
Make no mistake, in most major US cities the police unions are THE power, no politician dares cross them, and the cities would burn if anyone ever dared challenges that.

Worse than Papa Deathsantis?

Not to say he's not worthless.

Stop spreading bad information. It's not a crater, it's more of a rubble mound. And it stopped smoldering at the end of July, aside from some pockets on Burnside. Also, it was only destroyed by BLM Antifa. The Hippies have all been stuck outside of Eugene the last year debating whether ACAB is offensive to children who don't know who their parents are.

Because the stupid leftier-than-thous decided to back a write-in on a runoff election. That split the vote and Wheeler was reelected.
 
2021-09-09 2:21:43 AM  
And what I'm hearing is that the state needs to pass a law mandating vaccines.
 
2021-09-09 2:46:58 AM  
Governor Brown needs to pull the OHA's head out of its ass and have it ensure that the State vaccination guidance not only covers people responsible for health care in the State, but also to any State employee that has significant public interaction. In other words, police.

It is literally in the first hundred words of the article that all the FARK kook-left nutcases clearly didn't read, that Wheeler wanted to mandate vaccine for to the police, but was prevented from doing so by the City Attorney saying that the OHA's guidance couldn't be applied to them.

If the standard FARK "Trumpers of the kook left" want to understand why nobody outside their little drum circle cares a shiat about their idiotic fact-free ravings, this is a perfect example of why.

Dusk-You-n-Me: Recall Wheeler


Why? Because he tried to make cops get vaccinated but couldn't?
