After Friday, unvaccinated workers who won’t submit to semiweekly coronavirus testing headtopics.com
will be placedon unpaid leave.Catanzara suggested that if the city does enforce its requirement and many union members refuse to comply with it, “It’s safe to say that the city of Chicago will have a police force at 50% or less for this weekend coming up.”

I hope the union has a job opening for those who do not want to protect and serve by getting vaccinated . The city is a shit show. What does she mean by prepared. They built a morgue? What a bunch of babies. Their kids all get vaccinated for multiple things before they even attend school. This is political. The head of the Chicago place union is buddy buddy with the trump boys. Stick with the plan, Mayor L. Do what you need to do. Keep Chicago healthy!
For this who forgot 724,000 have died from Covid. That number will increase by approx 1500-2000 per day. This ties in with the corruption and brutality people refer to with that dept. when officers aren’t held accountable for wrongdoing, it leads to a mentality that anything goes. Also, Hundreds of cops are dead b/c of covid. The union leader is an idiot.
Covid will never end if people don’t get the damn vaccine.

GetVaccinated HoldTheLine They SHOULD CALL OFF LIKE SouthwestAir. They weren’t appreciated last year and still not by that city leaders. The ONES THAT WEAR THAT BADGE ARE PEOPLE! THEY CHOOSE TO WEAR THAT BADGE TO HELP COMMUNITIES, they don’t have to.
Southwest cancels thousands of flights, leading to chaos at airportsFrom Los Angeles to Miami, Dallas to Denver, thousands of Southwest customers had weekend travel plans ruined by more than 2,000 flight cancelations. The airline canceled another 10% of flights on Monday.
Cops defying a work related vaccine mandate in this day and age is as stupid as it gets. Why are cops allowed to be the biggest babies in the entire country? police unions must comply with the laws of the state & feds/.just like trump needs to comply with the govt who owns trump hotel/.let the federal fbi /.have that property for the new fbi offices/.a win,win for our democracy/.which djt can never pay for all the money he owes russia
God Forbid that you might actually have to 'Protect and Serve' the public by being 'vaccinated' when you come in contact with them. You need to change that Chicago theme Chicago bang bang DakotasChild1 More people who don't belong in uniform in the first place quitting? Yes, please. IwillNOTComply FreedomFlu 🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲
The unvaccinated have inflicted preventable and unjustifiable harm upon family, friends, neighbors, community, and country. For representative police officers to instruct whose job it is to protect and serve the community not to vaccinate is reprehensible. Because I said No

I rarely defend cops, but good! DeleteFacebook All police are disease vectors? The mayor can’t handle Chicago with her current police force. Good luck with a reduction. This will give Chicago at great idea about which cops are trumpers / racism blind eye turners / science deniers / far right radicalized. Cut em loose.
Fire em. Put the gangs in charge of crime in the city, pay them and issues resolved. Just saying, want to get rid of criminal element in the city? Who knows, it may work. cryborg Why? What’s their end game here in defying the order? Death? Funny how police, who tell others what to do, get all pissy when someone tells them to do something. Just another example of how out of control police can be.
So click it or ticket is just as fascist?
Southwest cancellations spark unsupported ‘sickout’ claims over vaccine mandateWhen Southwest Airlines canceled more than 2,000 flights over the weekend, unsupported claims blaming vaccine mandates began taking off as well. 🤔 I blame tedcruz 🙄 GetVaccinated 🙏🏼 Unsupported Haven't a number of pilots said it was because of mandates? Way to go journalism.
The city can't even handle the fallout now. Chicago is America's murder capital and Mayor Beetlejuice isn't doing shit! Chicago plan B since 1987. idiocracy is happening! Darwinism at work unfortunately at all our expense we all lose. I lose sleep over wondering what they think on their deathbed of their naivety or ignorance or just a gross underestimation did they believe fake fake news.
The FOP is wrong again and again. Kind of hillarious so many cops are afraid of a little “shot” That’s just what Chicago needs, less cops on the street. 2726 shot. 616 killed and counting... The mayor isn't even prepared when her police departments are fully staffed though 😂 ezralevant Beetlejuice is saying, the most violent city in US is prepared if officers get fired/quit? And no one asks her questions about it? Such journalism, much bravery! Anyway, good for the head of the union! We support them. Hold your grounds against this medical apartheid!

Editorial: A gaping hole in Gov. Newsom's school vaccine 'mandate'A 'personal belief' exemption to any COVID-19 vaccine rules just tells parents and staff they're free to do what they want. That is not a mandate. opinion This is sick stuff no kid under 16 should get the shot unless they have issues. The democrats are killing our kids and unborn babies. We must get them out of office. opinion 'Personal belief' of what your child learns is false is not a good reason to keep your child from killing themselves and other children opinion The exception is the rule. Everyone do your own thing and manage your own risk.
Cops losing their jobs and not being paid is the first good thing to come of covid. Have to find another job besides being Professional snitches Gee, police feeling they are beyond regulations or laws? Who'd have thought!? So you swear in to uphold and obey the law. When the law changed and mandates within their power are made and you don’t like them, then law comes second? People and their entitlement to defy laws all stems form Trump.
NO MORE COVID19 NOR WORTHLESS VACCINES GET THE COVIDCURE COVID GONE IN 3 DAYs GUARANTEED! RT Biggest cry babies ever Two birds one stone 🚫🐷 We try it your way and all we get is the next wave. 🤔 Fish eyes getting her bluff called. More than 700 cops nationwide has died from COVID. Imagine the tune if it were in the line of duty?
Texas Governor Greg Abbott bans mandatory vaccination in stateThe latest order by the Republican governor applies to all organisations, including private businesses.
[Opinions mine: I am not a doctor, this is not intended as medical advice]. One thing is sure: the fastest way to completely halt all mandates is to require government or vaccine producers to pay for people hurt by vaccine. So if they don’t report, they work for free? Awesome for the taxpayers! At some point, you have to stand up for freedom, no matter how tyrannical the government
You literally can be caught murdering each other in Chicago and it's cool. That's probably why they're unconcerned with a lack of policing Now we know why Chicago has so many shootings. The cops are just collecting their check and coming after the events to just cleanup. No one ever knows anything nor sees anything. The mayor should just get rid of the whole PD. Maybe the city will get lot better.
I have no problem with the anti-vax/mask police officers being put on unpaid leave. There is no room for narcissism in the police force. They are there to protect & serve. This will help thin out the bad cops in the force & will help repair the relationship with the community. Lol... blue lives aren't a thing. 🐷
Just like the city is prepared to deal with the horrendous amount of shootings and murder.🤮 Bye Felicia
Vaccination Rates Surge Amid Covid Vaccine Mandates, White House SaysCoronavirus infections and deaths are dropping as vaccinations rise. I have an idea. 80% increase in shear capacity of concrete slab using ECC concrete with a thickness of 3 cm. I wanted to know who is interested in investing in this idea? the prototype is built and tested(If you know someone who is investing in ideas,please introduce me to them) well no shit Surged? They have been saying that 25% of people aren't vaccinated no that number is 23%. Where is the surge?
Hopefully this weeds out some bad cops This will get interesting. What will be the Vegas over/under on shootings and muders? Wow, seriously? They should be ashamed. Once again they show us that they are nothing more than a gang and not actual public servants. More bad cops on the way out! Good opportunity to get rid of those bad apples everyone talks about.
Fuck, and I cannot stress this enough, the police. Covid is the leading cause of deaths for police officers, but OK. Okay. Take their pensions. See what they do.
