Nearly 80 police officers went off duty last Thursday because of San Francisco’s ridiculous vaccine mandate.
There were 120 holdouts among officers, however that number fell to 76 as of last Thursday:
CBS SAN FRANCISCO – The majority of police officers are vaccinated and the numbers continue to climb even after the Oct. 13th deadline. A police source had placed the number of holdouts at 120 as of Wednesday.
Early Wednesday evening, KPIX 5 learned some San Francisco police officers will get more time to become fully vaccinated. Those currently in between their first and second shots will now have until November 12th to fulfill the requirement.
By late Thursday afternoon, the number of SFPD officers who are still unvaccinated had dropped to 76. Those officers will now be placed on paid administrative leave while waiting for hearings for their individual cases. They will not be allowed to interact with the public on the streets.
Despite the latest figures, the head of the San Francisco Police Officers’ Association is still saying response times will be negatively impacted.
The uncertainty that remains is what happens to those who still refuse.
“The concern is if we don’t have the visibility or the staffing on the streets, it could impact the crime level,” said San Francisco Police Officers’ Association Tony Montoya.
Wednesday night, San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott addressed the dozens of officers who were still holding out.
“Those employees will be sent to the commission for a non-disciplinary hearing for release from employment,” said Scott.
It is utterly amazing to me that these leftist cities are so entrenched in their covid ideology that they would risk public safety over it. 76 officers is a huge number of men and women that they will fire all because of a vaccine. Leftism truly is a disease.
Leesburg, Virginia is going to be in a similar dilema:
