And Yet, They Wear Body Armor

It's a strange thing. Cops will wear body armor to mitigate the chances of being shot dead, but against the number one killer of cops over the last two years, they prefer ignorance.

The Officer Down Memorial Page that has been tracking law enforcement COVID-19 deaths nationwide finds that 473 officers have died from the infection since the pandemic started. That is five times the number killed by gunfire.
...
They document 228 police killed by COVID this year, compared to 48 gunfire deaths; last year there were 245 police COVID deaths compared to 45 by gunfire
.


But their idiot union presidents are eager to see their members die of Covid so they can mkae the point that the cops are above the law, above the rules.

The head of the Chicago police officers union has called on its members to defy the city’s requirement to report their Covid-19 vaccination status by Friday or be placed on unpaid leave.

Here's the thing: The cops may believe that they are above the law, that they get to kill people with impunity and then cover it up (and fire the whistleblowers) and beat up women half their size for no good reason, but the virus does not respect their badges. Not taking the best precaution available against a deadly virus because of Trumpist-grade politics is the stuff of morons.

Such a simple solution to a deadly disease has instead of being embraced has turned people irrational and as a result people have died. This is unforgivable.

I just read that the unvaccinated have an 11 times greater covid-19 death rate than the rational people who know grade school math and got injected. That should thin the cop herd a bit. Too bad they will sicken and kill civilians while obeying Russian agitprop. Covid Marys gonna infect- Putin and agent orange still winning bigly on the unnecessary death front. Luckily this time it's mostly traitorous Trumpite cops. So no one of value will be lost except for civilian collateral sickness and death. Big fuck you to the police union. Defund these murderous turncoat motherfuckers.

I'm not anti-cop. I have known a few good cops. Who you gonna call? But mostly i don't trust them, especially if you let them gang up. They have a tendency to do that. If they want to catch covid, fine by me. Chickenshits, some of these bad cops.

They are just fine with guns and gear and being the deputy sheriff, but they are afraid of a needle. They especially are afraid of having their authority questioned. Not good.
