Seattle police may lose 40% of their officers to vaccine mandate

Gateway PunditThe Seattle Police Department is preparing to fire as many as 400 unvaccinated officers if they do not give in to the city’s strict vaccine mandate that will begin on October 18th.

The department is facing the tough decision to let go almost 40% of its officers despite already having a crisis-level staff shortage that has left the city increasingly unprotected against a massive surge in crime.

I say that this is just another way of defunding the police, and there's some truth to that. But why is the left so willing to take the political hit of losing nearly half their police force just to get a few more people vaccinated?

Clearly it's not about a vaccine. We just don't know what it's really about yet.
