Unfit: Hundreds of Cops Are Dying of COVID. They Still Won’t Get Vaccinated.

“The profession is very hard-headed. It is a profession where historically someone has to die before there is change. It’s scary, but it’s true.” VT's point is this, we see anti-vaxx as the stepchild of white supremacism

Vice: A year and a half after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Fruitland, Maryland, Police Chief Brian Swafford says the COVID-19 vaccination rate within his department is far behind where he’d like it to be. And he’s having a helluva time convincing officers to get the potentially life-saving shot, especially when politics come into play.

“Some people that voted for Trump are the ones now saying, ‘Oh I’m not getting it,’” said Swafford, whose department of 20 officers is 60 percent vaccinated. “Well Donald Trump got this vaccine, and so it’s the same vaccine that you’re gonna get under President Biden. So because your guy didn’t win now, it’s a hoax? Come on.”

“If their decision is based on politics and not their health, I’d like to change their mind,” he added. “I wish I could get them to step back and look at it a different way, but they’re just not going to.”

Since the start of the global pandemic, more police officers have died of COVID than all other causes combined in the line of duty. Just by the nature of their work, having to interact with the public on a near-daily basis, exposure to the virus is almost a certainty.

But despite the mounting death count, law enforcement officers in the country are simply not getting vaccinated. Their reluctance—whether over politics, retaliation for growing criticism toward their profession, or distrust for something as new as the COVID-19 vaccine—is putting themselves, and the communities they’re supposed to serve, at risk. And their bosses are running out of ways to convince them otherwise.  Read more…

  1. [” What is a POLICE-Officer?? First of all : A Human Being, a creation of Creators. A high sensible Energy-Project, programmed by Mother Nature , Holy Ghost, with a Heart and Soul and Spirit. This Project is existing within a specific Frequencies-High and Low Level, always in duty to balance it to be alive as a Creator, called God. What is a POLICE-OFFICER : An Employee of a private commercial Corporation: ConstellisGroup, AKADEMI, with Investors like BlackRock and Vanguard…ok, a complete wrapped UNiformed PERSON. In the early days, Sherriffs hat just a gun and a stick and the handchains…nothing was violating them, ok, maybe a bullet of the Bad-Guy….But today This AI-highTech controlled PERSON is completely under deadly ENERGY-Attack. HIGH-Tech-CARS : A mobile Microwave. The Uniform-attachments: Mobile Microwave. Smart-5G Weapon in duty all day on in Service. So the Body is totally overloaded with mobile Frequencies and Radiowaves and so all day long high radiation of all these AI-HighTech Products under the Helmet and Equipment’s directly at the Body. So, the GENOZID of these Employees IS Program, because the limited Human Being is not able to balance these smart-Weapons 5G EMF ELF EHF. Collapse is programmed. And this can be proven by detailed Autopsies !! “] .

  2. absolutely all excellent points, 90% of boy children also had their penis cut. cutting off of around 60% of nerve endings, so a lot of controlled psychopathy stems from that. Not that one welcomes a foreskin infection as a rite of passage, but it happens

  3. Hard headed aerosol rape networks, odorizing mind control drug/mind rape NATO gas formulas reign supreme. Talk to any cop, it is a secret network, secrecy is only requirment, maybe the taking of testosterone and adrenal substance, dunnoh. But the network is top dog supreme teflon dons, nothing sticks

  4. The desperate always resort to ad hominem attacks. They make up their own facts and discount those who don’t agree with them. True Believer Syndrome: The more one invests in a belief, the more value one will place in this belief and, as a consequence, be more resistant to facts, evidence or reality that contradict this belief. This is especially true with the Rapture-me-outta-here crowd who are the heart and soul of Trump’s base.

    • Rand Paul tells us every day…Fauci is certainly a good guy because the Kosher Nostra’s clown posse hates him

    • It appears (although I can’t prove it) that folks with skin in the vaccine production business like what Fauci has to say. That’s OK but it doesn’t mean he didn’t abrogate his Hippocratic oath when he dead panned and dodged for the orange blob. Does the clown posse get stock options?

  5. Kalle, are you actually a housewife in Tel Aviv? Your buddy Bibi bragged back in 1990, “America is a golden calf, and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the world’s biggest welfare state that we will create and control.”

    Everything that’s happened in the USA since 9/11, including the deployment of the COVID-19 bioweapon in the red states, has proved him right. Obviously, the same fiends who first deployed the virus in China have come up with a new and improved version of it that first turns its victims crazy before it kills them.

    • Let’s not mention what happened in Africa with the ‘polio vaccine’. Gordon, Vice? Vice? A more POS news outlet could not be cited. I saw what they were all about when Ukraine went to hell after the coup. If you took their reports for real, the Russians and eastern Ukrainians were doing all the killing. They even tried to blame Mariupol on them. If it comes off Vice, it’s a pack of BS. BTW Tommy, if you had read much on Salk, you would know that even he was not totally convinced the polio vaccine was responsible for the down-turn in cases. He postulated that it might have just run it’s course. Africa was a different story, with people dying. Anyone remember the story of the AIDS epidemic there, it being a manufactured disease and it’s epicenter in relation to the polio vaccine rollout? All this about C-19 is not cut and dried simple and neither is this so-called vaccine. They have never told us WHY this has to be a mRNA type, instead of a ‘traditional’ vaccine, have they?

    • Zman. VT apparently believes everything they read in the newspapers about Polio vaccines and the HIV con job. You are right on the money (no pun intended). Salk wouldn’t get to first base today with his cure even with the incompetent FDA. Study the real history of vaccines and start to realize most of it lacks scientific basis. But it sounds so logical to the average person scared about some purported plague about to kill us all.

  6. Remember, fully one quarter of Americans are right-wing evangelicals. They believe everything their Christian Zionist pastors tell them, including that the Earth was created exactly 6025 years ago and the Sun is its planet. For them, the only cure for COVID-19 is Jesus. These mostly white Christian men are never going to be vaccinated because it would be a denial of their faith. Therefore, COVID-19 must be a hoax and the vaccine must be poison. All evidence to the contrary must be fake.

    This is part of what makes COVID-19 such an effective bioweapon in the USA. The fiends that first deployed it in China must be congratulating themselves on a job well done.

    • Tommy. Will we ever find the middle ground where all of the assertions from all sides are factually vetted? Long time coming. Long time gone. I have a face mask made of tin foil. Appropriate?

    • The middle ground on all of this is obviously Carol Duff. I’m surprised that she hasn’t jumped in here and set the record straight on some of these other-worldly medical beliefs. Truth is, the unvaccinated will soon be paying higher premiums for health insurance. ReTrumplicans should understand this, as they depend mostly on private insurance instead of “socialism.” There’s a precedent for raising insurance premiums on individuals who are deemed a greater health risk. Take smokers, for instance, who are more likely to die of cancer and tend to face higher health costs than nonsmokers.

  7. 33% and a onther 33 says, it’s all fake. And I wonder, would Putin really be the man of Destiny? The president of the U.S. (NZ, Aus’) and al government leaders of Europe, are definitely not.

    Is that why the children in Russia learn, that Stalin was the great hero and liberated Europe? Eurasia is a danger to the U.S. as well. In a later stage..
