With fewer police officers on the force, crime and violence are up in Seattle. However, the public safety crisis could worsen if Mayor Durkan stands by this push to force vaccinate city workers.
Mike Solan, the president of a Seattle police union, is warning about the negative consequences that will stem from such a mandate. According to Solan, making COVID vaccination a condition for Seattle police officers to keep their jobs is a very bad idea.
If this mandate does not change, the city of Seattle could lose 200 more officers…and that’s a very conservative estimate.
The continued decline of blue states
Blue states across America aren’t doing so well. With high taxes, oppressive regulations, and more, people are fleeing these places. Ironically, it is leftist inner cities (like New York City, Seattle, Chicago, etc.,) forcing through all these COVID vaccine mandates.
If left-wing mayors and city councils are determined to die on this hill, they should not complain when their number of local first responders gets progressively smaller.
