As Washington state’s vaccine mandate approaches, some Seattle police officers are protesting with pictures of their cruisers draped with the Gadsen flag.
All Washington state employees are required to submit proof of vaccination by Monday.
According to Seattle Police Officers Guild President Mike Solan, officers will face a “Loudermill hearing” if they refuse to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
During the hearing, the officers can publicly state why they refused to comply with the mandate before being formally separated from the force, according to Fox News.
“Some officers plan on taking time off to decide what they will do long term. They don’t seem eager to stay with SPD. Others explained that they are going to leave the SPD by the end of the year as a result of this,” KTTH radio show host Jason Rantz wrote on Twitter, accompanied by the photos. “Officers took these photos in protest of the mandate.”
A Washington State Patrol officer filmed himself during his last call on Friday after resigning.
“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 said.
