So many stupid people out there. That so many of them are cops should be telling us something.
 
2021-12-05 3:25:21 PM  
I've said it before but it wouldn't surprise me if the police that won't get vaccinated are the worst of the worst. This could be the best thing to happen to policing in our lifetimes.
 
2021-12-05 3:40:32 PM  
Gee.  Where can we find other high school dropouts who became cops just so they can beat people up and hate black people?
 
2021-12-05 3:56:13 PM  
Cops said to be facing termination are drawing their weapons, firing at, and planting drugs on, termination, as it's the only way they know.

Good. You don't want people who selfishly endanger public safety in charge of public safety.

That the entire structure and process by which we determine who should be police officers is catastrophically flawed.

The fact that being even a little bit above average in intelligence disqualifies applicants should make this kind of stuff obvious.

Then again, I work with a retired WA state trooper lieutenant who quit after getting tired of all the negative attitudes and press towards cops in general (ie, not supporting police no matter what).

He was a bigwig in Internal Affairs.

We do not get along.

I don't think it's fair that workers lose their jobs because they didn't get vaccinated. Businesses have been trampling on workers rights for years from union busting to eliminating benefits to wage theft. Why can't we expand workers rights w/o fear of firing for once?

Cops are always looking for more ways to hurt others. And Covid is a new tool in their arsenal.

Can we just report these as "160 San Diego police officers face termination for refusing to comply with departmental health guidelines?"

I mean, let's face it, if cops can't figure out that they need to STOP RESISTING AND COMPLY WITH LAWFUL ORDERS, it's just time to kneel on their necks for 9 minutes or so until they stop biatching, right?

Fark them.

There's plenty of ways to expand worker rights that aren't pro-disease-and-death and anti-public-health. You even named a few of the problems we could take action on that wouldn't result in people dying and being on disability for the rest of their lives.

I am being serious. Rosh Hashanah is the most important holidays and people get off work. They can take Hanukkah off, but not Rosh Hashanah.

It's fairly easy to be granted an exemption. Person I know cited their deeply held religious beliefs that the vaccine is morally wrong

Religious tolerance is when my manager gave me the choice to move a holiday PTO day to Christmas Eve instead of having to use vacation days.  Or accommodating a Muslim member of our team who needs a quiet place to pray for a couple minutes multiple times a day.

It is not letting some jackass spread disease because they're afraid of a vaccine and masks because Trump told them to be.  Very few religions have anything at all to say about either one of those other than "DON'T SPREAD DISEASE AND KILL PEOPLE YOU ASSHOLE!"  It's possible that Jesus phrased it a little differently.

Or we could just give everyone a certain number of floating holidays the can use at any time. If the first Tuesday in April is ape Tuesday and you observe it by going to the gorilla house at the zoo that's your business. I'm not interested in deciding which cult is a valid cult, and which days are magic to those cults. I work at a job that's always open, I take my alloted days off when I want them, and it's none of my bosses damn business why.

People with religious beliefs are waking up to the fact that fetal cells lines are being used in the development and manufacturing process of the vaccine. Even though the vaccines themselves don't contain any fetal cell lines, it  still somehow violates their beliefs. Hopefully modern medicine will develop cells that are not fetal cells in the future or the federal government will ban the practice.

Think back to the kids you knew in junior high and high school.  The ones who'd cause trouble, but somehow managed to evade facing any consequences for it.  Every other kid knew who they were, but somehow the grownups didn't see it.

Those are the people who become cops.  There were three of them in my neighborhood growing up.  One of the three, by all accounts, was a decent cop.

edmo: So many stupid people out there. That so many of them are cops should be telling us something.



From the original article at LA times, "About 65% of officers were vaccinated as of Thursday, according to the city's latest figures."

US' fully-vaccinated rate is 59.8%, per google.

Oh, well, then it's very easy to tell if they are genuine.  Just check their home medicine cabinet for any of three common pain killers.  Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen, and Aspirin have all been tested using those same cell lines.

Stop believing and excusing their lies.
