The LATimes email thingie has a teaser to a story that should catch our attention:
L.A. police, fire agencies hotbeds of vaccine opposition — and coronavirus outbreaks
Los Angeles County health officials have identified hundreds of coronavirus outbreaks at police and fire agencies since the start of the pandemic. The outbreaks, accounting for more than 2,500 coronavirus cases, have occurred in public safety agencies large and small across the county. More than half, however, were in just two agencies: the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles Fire Department — where members are actively fighting public health measures to control such spread.
The figures reflect a consistent and ongoing spread of infection within police and fire stations from the start of the pandemic through the present, and offer an important backdrop to the growing effort by police officers and firefighters to push back on measures such as vaccine mandates.
As regular readers know I’m all in favor of the policy behind —just not the hashtag— defund the police (dumbest marketing/messaging in Democratic politics, ever), and it seems to me that we now know who the thugs are in the police departments, and because of the vaccine mandate they are either resigning or dying.
When the people put in charge of public safety are promoting public danger during a pandemic are (one way or the other) removed from their jobs, it is a good thing.
