If police officers cannot confirm their vax status, they do not have the right mindset for public safety and if unvaxed, are themselves a threat to public safety. They need to be replaced with officers who put public safety, not petty politics, first.

As a citizen, I would never ever ever trust any police officer, or city employees, that are not vaxed. Their sworn duty is to protect and serve. That is what our tax dollars pay for. Unvaxed police are a danger to their fellow officers, families, and the entire city.

“Literally die before you agree with bad lady.”

2020 & 2021 the number 1 killer of cops was Covid but how dare there be action to address it

That guy is a pig in every sense of the word. He's loathsome.

Not surprising from the man who praised capital riot offenders. His understanding of the big picture has proven to be compromised either by stupidity or ignorance. Either one is dangerous.

And this is the CPD leadership? Time to investigate his motives and his affiliations.I believe is time to replace him.

A investigation team should look into how many of these police officers refusing vaccine were off Jan.6, and find out if they were in DC. Not just Illinois, the entire USA should do the same. Not getting vaccinated, is a huge red flag.

Really acting more out of hatred for LL than for the officers best interest. Not sure why the FOP put up with this guy.

So...he'd rather risk his officers getting infected and/​or dying than agree with anything this mayor has to say? Sharp.
