From Robert Shay:
Not the safest city in the best of times and losing up to 50% of the remaining police officers won’t help. Still you have to hand it to their union chief for being clear headed and holding the line.
Chicago Police Union Head Calls on Members to Defy Vaccine Mandate
“Do not fill out the portal information,” Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara said in a video to officers posted on YouTube. “I’ve made my status very clear as far as the vaccine, but I do not believe the city has the authority to mandate that to anybody—let alone that information about your medical history.”
More on the Chicago Police. Includes Catanzara’s video to the rank and file from Tuesday. It is excellent. They certainly intend to fight and win.
Chicago Set to Lose 50% or More of Police Force at Midnight Tonight as Police Union Calls Mayor’s Bluff on Reporting COVID-19 Vaccine Status – 10 minutes
He encourages all officers to report for duty Friday morning, and force their supervisors to send them home for not going to the portal and filling out the medical information.
If the city goes through with this, Catanzara states that 50% of the Chicago police force, or even less, will be on duty this weekend.
It seems that not only are the unvaccinated not going to the portal to surrender personal information, apparently many officers who have received a vaccine but consider the City’s demands illegal and an invasion of their privacy are also not complying.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot responded to Catanzara’s video by following the current script that the Globalists have written and that is being broadcast on their pharma-owned corporate media 24/7 now.
“If you are not vaccinated, you are playing with your life, the life of your family, the life of your colleagues, and members of the public. We don’t want to lose any more police officers for covid-19 deaths when a lifesaving vaccine is readily available.”
When questioned about the legal actions Catanzara stated the Union would take, she reportedly responded:
“Bring it on.”
