Washington State Troopers Refusing Vaccination Will Be Fired, No Accommodation For Religious Exemptions

Many states across the country have been mandated that their public servants get the COVID-19 vaccination. Governor Jay Inslee in Washington has mandated that it include law enforcement.

No Religious Exemptions

According to his office, any officer who does not get the shot will be fired. Any Washington State Patrol employees who want to keep their job have until Oct. 18th.

To make matters more difficult, many WSP employees found emails in their inboxes telling them that there will be "no accommodation" for the employees who have "religious exemption requests."

Human resources has consulted with the state's attorney legal team, addressing the order from Inslee. However, those who have already submitted requests are expecting them to be denied.

“I wish I had better news on this as I know many of us have been waiting to hear back regarding accommodation requests,” a high-ranking member of the WSP said in the email, according to KTTH. “I know this is hard news to hear for many of us. I wanted to share this with you directly as soon as I found out instead of waiting for the daily bulletin to come out.”

Medical Exemption

So far, there has not been a final decision regarding medical vaccine exemptions. Though according to the email, those who want medical exemptions “will have to take leave during that waiting period until they can come back to work fully vaccinated."

According to WSP Trooper Phillip Berg, the agency will have a massive staffing crisis if no exemptions are given.

The mandate was given on August 9th, giving a little more than two months for employees to get vaccinated. Inslee also said testing will not be an option.

An internal poll showed that only 19 troopers said that mandatory vaccinations are the way to go. In sharp contrast, 499 think that mandatory is not necessary or just disagree.

Mandate Ramifications

The more alarming number is the 295 who say they would rather be fired. Trooper Robert LaMay, who has been with WSP for 22 years.

“I mean, we’re talking, just patrol, 400 or 500, 600 people. We have probably 800 guys that actually really work the road, the rest of them are management positions, things of that nature," said LaMay.

Overall, it is a large number of officers to lose at a time where they can't afford to lose any.

  1. What ever happened to "My Body, My Choice"? It's good for women to kill babies, but you cannot refuse the vaccination?

    1. yes you can refuse . you just have fight for your rights . do not let them RULE OVER YOU!!! FIGHT WITH EVERYTHING YOU HAVE.!!!!

        1. In MY view we need to get better people into our government. AND we need to let others what we think, what we do, and what AMERICA NEEDS. I say Biden should be FIRED NOW and put the REAL PRESIDENT TRUMP BACK INTO THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT AS HE WAS ELECTED AND ILLEGALLY DESTROYED AS PRESIDENT. That fool that Biden took as VP could NEVER even pretend to be President should Biden get removed. TRUMP IT IS!!! ASAP !!!

    2. Its about CONTROL and up to people to push back.. they tasted blood and theyre already planning next Pandemic-- they enjoyed the power and control.. people are catching on. Vaccine persons CHOICE but the mandate thing is COMMUNISM.. thats NOT America! People, we all need to refuse to lose our freedom as it wont end here.

      1. Where is the freedom in death, the vaccine is about staying alive, I would have thaught that The Right to Lifers would appreciate that.

        1. you need to read up on this so-called vaccine which it is not a vaccine it's changing your DNA so you're not supposedly not as acceptable people are getting the vaccine and still getting the virus and still dying so the numbers are in that I just read if you get the vaccine you stand a chance of wanting 57 of dying if you don't get to vaccine you stand one in 547 you need to research a little bit more this vaccine is a death sentence it ain't a light sentence

        2. Read this:
          Each year, more than 165 million Americans get the flu shot. There were 85 reported deaths following influenza vaccination in 2017; 119 deaths in 2018; and 203 deaths in 2019
          Between mid-December 2020 and April 23, 2021, at which point between 95 million and 100 million Americans had received their COVID-19 shots, there were 3,544 reported deaths following COVID vaccination, or about 30 per day
          In just four months, the COVID-19 vaccines have killed more people than all available vaccines combined from mid-1997 until the end of 2013 — a period of 15.5 years
          As of April 23, 2021, VAERS had also received 12,618 reports of serious adverse events. In total, 118,902 adverse event reports had been filed
          In the European Union, the EudraVigilance system had as of April 17, 2021, received 330,218 injury reports after vaccination with one of the four available COVID vaccines, including 7,766 deaths
          Update: July 16, 2021. 11,000 Americans Dead, 48,000 Seriously Injured as of July 9. The death toll averaged nearly 100 persons per day for the period from April 23 until July 9, 2021.
          Oh yeah, the vaccine is about staying alive. The only problem is what is going to kill you, the vaccine or the virus.

  2. The Supreme Court in Rowe vs Wade 1973 ruled that a woman has a Constitutional right to control what happens to her body. The Constitution also stipulates that all citizens are guaranteed to be equal with equal protection under the law. These mandates are totally un Constitutional as determined by the Supreme Court and no mandates dealing with drugs experimental or not can be forced on any citizen nor can any judge order as such unless Rowe vs Wade is over turned and then a separate case would be found the same in the Supreme Court. If a smart attorney would think about this and represent some victim of this un Constitutional action would be well accepted with respect. These mandates would end abruptly and save our economy.

    1. AND IF YIU GIVE IN YOU ARE JUST HELPING THOSE COMMINIST BASTARDS. DO NOT LET THEM TAKE YOUR RIGHTS AWAY . YOU REFUSE EVERY SINGLE THING THEY SAY !!! I HAVE EVEN HAD Wal-Mart tell me to ware a mask in their store I ran the guy across the store. I didn't ware a mask and won't . that mask has nothing to do with the damn virus . it's to show the communist you will comply to their demands. the mask is totally worthless. and they damn well know it to many americans are not getting the real news . they still watch that bullshit on tv.

    2. The Supreme Court in Rowe vs Wade 1973 ruled that a woman has a Constitutional right to control what happens to her body. Ergo, our government officials ALLOW women to have abortions as wanted, and that means they are allowing criminals....in fact those Supreme Court people are/were also criminals who voted for murdering babies.

  3. Another good reason for the "Great American Divorce". Some states do not look at some things the way that others look at them. Some states prefer "Totalism".

  4. Where is their union? When you get this China virus vaccine you must sign an agreement. If you experience side affects, you can not sue the vaccine manufacturer AND your workmen’s comp insurance does not cover you. The best way to keep your rights protected is say you will get the vaccine, if your employer’s covers your expenses should you experience side effects. If your employer is really concerned with your “safety “ he will agree. If not , well …

  5. Well they should let the state fire them and draw unemployment and wait for the shit to hit the fan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Won't take long, when the state will beg them back !!!!!!!!!!!
    Then the officers will have leverage to get what they want !!!!!

    1. If they fire all the cops then our highways can become raceways with no one to stop the action. Those in power should engage brain, if they have one, before making such demands on those who are hired to protect society. As the old saying goes " you can not cure stupid" visible proof.

      1. Personally I have never met a leftist who had a brain. Congress Democrats have absolutely no brain and no honor, not to mention they have no souls.....so guess where they will go one of these days.

      2. Our highways already look like NASCAR.. People driving so damn fast and no Highway Patrol around.
        So yes less cops means, I stay off the road as much as possible.

      1. After one or two days with anarchy in the streets,the powers that be,will beg them to return,without the shot. And give them the raise they deserve..trust me!

        1. They tried to get rid of the Police in blue State's that didn't work so good. Look at all the Crime in thoughts States.

      2. People are doing it all around me and doing better than working. Look at all the places begging people to work!

      3. I don't know about that people unemployment all through covid in 2020 made more money than I did working. If I'd have been unemployment I'd probably get paid everything I owed off except for my house.

    2. If They walk out,for one day,crime will prevail,"A Blue Flu" will stop this mandate.
      Antifa& Blm will start the show...bring in the 82nd ABN..."Lets Roll"

    3. I think the idea is to deny unemployment, but they need to stand their ground we all do its going to get really bad this type of action is why I believe in my soul they are doing something horrible. There's something really wrong going on and evil.

  6. Following the medical forced experimentation in Nazi concentration camps, medical doctors formulated the Nuremberg Code in 1947. The document outlines ethics to protect humans rights in medical practice. The first item is the voluntary consent of the subject and the right to refuse treatment, "without any element of force...or coercion." https://research.wayne.edu/irb/pdf/2-2-the-nuremberg-code.pdf.
    Failure to heed the ethical practice and the basic rights of a person's sovereignty over her or his own body places our freedoms on a slippery slope to a totalitarian regime and additional loss of liberty. We are now firing nurses and police for non-compliance to be vaccinated and being told by our government that the vaccine is very safe. That is untrue. It is a very potent vaccine and reactions are not being objectively reported.

  7. CROOKS---head to Washington State---it will be WIDE OPEN on the 19th of OCT. Rape,pillage rob all you wish...start with the officials in their government...

  8. This is ASININE! Washington state officials have lost their minds. DO NOT PLAN A VACATION THERE.
    I hope and pray their officers say NO.

    1. Lived in WA and the state is beautiful but it has changed a lot for the bad for several years. Most of the family has moved to other states now.

  9. Wash, state gov should be sued by every officer that gets sick and or dies. There is a reason the gov. insists everyone get jabbed multiple times!! Not the number of people dying after getting the shots.

  10. It's quite apparently we have not bowed too communism. Warsaw Poland. Pharma not getting the big bucks Bilbo promised..
    Just how narcissistic will the voters allow the stadium too rule.
    READ TIMELINE OF NAXIS IN WARSAW.. PERFECTION TOO THE TYRANNICAL RULE OF GENOCIDE IN DEMOCRAT STRONGHOLDS.
    NAZIS MARCHED 22,000 POLICE INTO FOREST AND EXECUTED . THE IDIOTS IN THE USA. HAS REMOVED HOW MANY POLICE, ENOUGH FOR A MILITIA OF PROTECTORS.

  11. The tracking device in each shot is not a hoax. The magnet sticks to every shot injection site. Now they can track "everyone" whether you have a cell phone or not. Our poor kids. Orwells book is coming true. Scary.

  12. We knew this was coming!
    Mandated vaccines, BS and as someone stated below, refuse and fight for your job! Agreed, we must make a stand folks, it’s only going to get worse, woke companies, commie dem run states & institutions will all try it…
    I am retired so easy for me to say anything but I will tell you I would not do it and fight for my rights, if we continue to cave then we will get what we get.
    Elections are rigged, woke crap becoming the norm, schools screwed up, gun rights in trouble, news media & social media all part of the left. There you go so I said it’s gonna get worse, too late. The only thing it hasn’t done it affect you, but it will.
    That’s all for me, take a stand!

    1. Stay strong! Keep your personal rights has always been the key! Get organized!! Stand up for the Freedoms GOD has given you.

  13. They're going to get a firsthand account of what it would look like if they defund the police. Good luck with your crime rates.

    1. You citizens better arm up to protect your families. Police will stay home for a day or two...it will be like an apocalypse out in the streets..we will be safe,but the regular citizens will be game! ( FIGH BACK) Your life depends on it.

  14. I think persons making those decisions should all be replaced by someone with more common sense; it there any left that is.

  15. There needs to be a MASSIVE lawsuit to force employers, be they private or government that require vaccinations as a condition of employment to cover ALL medical, disability, and death claims due to vaccination reactions.

  16. Funny how the dirty do nothing democrats are on board with my body my choice but when the vaccine comes out they act like Dictator tyrant and there’s a reason they want to keep us scared do you want to keep it under control they want to take our second amendment but I say no vaccine

  17. The vaccine does not protect you from getting or passing on the virus at all. There is even a question that the vaccine is lowering natural immunity to other diseases. The latest from vaccine pushers is you must get a third vaccination or you are more likely to get other severe illnesses.

  18. If some idiot politician mandates Vaccines and one person dies from it, they should be arrested and tried for murder. That person would still be alive if not for their mandate and they should have to pay for it.
    I read where there have been 11,000 deaths here in the US from the vaccines. If that isn't enough to stop the mandates, what is?

  19. if the vaccination is so great why do they care if unvaccinated work why are they scared of us. None of this makes any logical sense. There is a very bigger picture here, they will be weeding us out of where I work also.

  20. Police globally should wake up to fact that tyrants are using them. Tyrants want to defund and weaken police. America would like to back the blue, but how can we when these blind morons take sides against family, friends, neighbors and citizens, and SUPPORT THE SCUM WHO WANT THEM DEAD? Simple question guys? WAKE UP. POLICE MILITARY AND CITIZENS. WE CAN UNITE AND OBLITERATE THE TREASON

  21. State troopers in communist WA, OR and CA need to align with National Guard and citizens and exercise our CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. These states have been taken over by filth and degradation. The governments of these states should be facing firing squad. At the very least, INSLEE, BROWN and NEWSOM must lose their vile America hating felon traitor lives.

  22. I don't agree that they should have to do it. I got the shot but that was my choice. Whether I ever get Covid who knows.
