A veteran state trooper in Washington went viral for his message for the governor as he resigned over the state’s vaccine mandate.
Trooper Robert LaMay, a 22-year veteran of the force, filmed his final radio call which included thanking his fellow colleagues and a parting message for Governor Jay Inslee.
“This is my final sign-off. After 22 years of serving the citizens of the state of Washington, I’m being asked to leave because I am dirty,” LaMay announced, referring to his unvaccinated status. “Numerous fatalities, injuries, I’ve worked sick, I’ve played sick. We’ve buried lots of friends over these years. I’d like to thank you guys. I’d like to thank the citizens of Yakima County as well as my fellow officers within the valley. Without you guys, I wouldn’t have been very successful. And you kept me safe and got me to my family every night. Thank you for that.”
LaMay is three years from being eligible for full retirement but resigned over his religious objections to receiving the vaccine.
“I wish I could say more, but this is it so state 10-34, this is the last time you’ll hear me in a state patrol car. And Jay Inslee can kiss my ***,” he concludes.
According to mynorthwest.com, LaMay receiving numerous awarding during his career. He received the Red Cross Real Life Hero award, WSP Commission Award (twice), WSP Commercial Vehicle Division Trooper of year in 2007, 2008, and 2009, and the Washington Traffic Safety Commission certificate of appreciation for seat belt enforcement.
The state is poised to lose more state patrol officers with estimates of over 100 possibly leaving due to the vaccine mandate.
