Washington Governor Jay Inslee has followed the misguided footsteps of governors in fellow Blue states. As part of the overreach in rolling out of vaccine mandates, Gov. Inslee imposed the mandate on local law enforcement — forcing them to get vaccinated in order to keep their jobs.
On Sunday, a video surfaced of a 22-year Washington State police officer giving his final sign-off after being relieved of his duties for choosing to go unvaccinated.
In his final send-off, the veteran officer out in Yakima County thanked his department for the two decades of service and gave a special nod to Gov. Inslee for the erroneous mandate that cost the state a diligent officer:
“This is my final sign-off. After 22 years of serving the citizens of the state of Washington, I am being asked to leave because I’m dirty,” said the officer.
“Numerous fatalities, injuries … I’ve worked sick, I’ve played sick. I’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 successful. You’ve kept me safe and got me home to my family every night. Thank you for that. Wish I could say more, but this is it. State 1034, this is the last time you’ll hear me in a state patrol car. … And Jay Inslee can kiss my ass.”
The message’s recipient responded with gratitude, lauding the officer for putting his life on the line in his years of service. She also mentions that the once officer delivered a baby while on-duty in his first year of service. “You’ve been great role model and mentor for all young troopers,” said the woman over the speaker. “Thank you for your service.”
