Washington: Multimillion Dollar Replacement Costs As Cops Quit Over Forced COVID Shots
What the Mockingbird, corporate-owned, drug pimping media is not reporting on is that tens of thousands of people count their lives and liberties more valuable than their jobs when forced to take the experimental COVID shots, which have taken the lives of millions of people on the earth. In Washington state, cops are quitting over the state’s unlawful edicts to force them to take the shots, and perhaps that is a good thing.

RT has the story.
Some 127 Washington State Patrol employees, more than half of them officers, were terminated after a vaccination deadline passed this week, with the force now bracing for staff shortages in critical areas and major costs.
Seventy-four commissioned officers – including 67 troopers, six sergeants and a captain – as well as 53 civil servants were “separated from employment” as they missed the October 18 deadline to provide proof of vaccination, the Washington State Patrol (WSP) reported earlier this week.
The WSP stated that the employees quit the force “for varying reasons and in varying ways,” with chief John R. Batiste declaring that “we will miss every one of them.”
“I extend a hardy thanks to those who are leaving the agency. I truly wish that you were staying with us. You have my utmost appreciation for the hard and successful work that you have provided during your valued WSP careers. You will forever have our respect for your courage and your commitment in all you have done on behalf of the agency.”
The mass exodus from the 2,200-strong force could put a strain on the depleted ranks. Speaking to the Oregonian, WSP spokesman Chris Loftis said that in some cases, such as vehicle collisions that result in no casualties or obstruction to traffic, the drivers themselves might be told to work things out on their own and “clear the area rather than wait for a trooper to show up.”

Some employees fired over the vaccine requirement successfully received exemptions from the order, but this did not prevent them from being terminated. Loftis said that over 400 people were granted such exemptions, but not all of them were offered alternative employment due to the nature of the agency’s work. Still, he stressed that the 74 troopers that were effectively forced out “were people that we knew and cared about.”

Some of the terminated troopers turned out at the state Capitol on Tuesday in a symbolic protest against the mandate. The former officers laid their boots and hats on the steps of the Capitol building to show “what the state’s lost,” one of the participants, ex-trooper Bill Jordan, told local media. Jordan says he received a religious exemption from the mandate, but the WSP failed to accommodate him.
“We will miss every one of them.” WSP Chief John Batiste said.

While Loftis said the agency will step up recruitment efforts, training will come with a hefty price tag. It is estimated that the mass exodus could cost taxpayers $12.4 million, as about $168,000 per year is needed to train just one cadet, and the WSP has lost 67.
The Washington State Patrol is not the only agency that has faced resistance from state employees over compulsory vaccination. More than 1,800 workers in the state have been fired, have resigned, or retired due to the ‘mandate’, according to official data released on Tuesday. This is about 3% of the state’s workforce that falls under the mandate, and those numbers could rise, as 2,887 cases are pending.

Guess who is going to be sent in to replace them? My bet is on the federal government, which has no business doing so. So, Washington will quickly go from a police state to a militarized police state.
We’ve seen the stories where even “unvaxxed” FEMA doctors and nurses are replacing doctors and nurses who are losing their jobs or quitting over these unlawful mandates. We’ve also seen where the National Guard has been called in to take children to school because of the same thing happening with bus drivers. No doubt, the police force has been thought of by these criminals too. We’ll see what happens.
