21 Chicago cops placed on no-pay status over Lightfoot's COVID vaccine mandate

To be sure the Democrat Party is not the party of public safety. 

Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a hardened leftist ideologue, has even stooped to calling Chicago cops who are vaccine skeptics "insurrectionists."

From WTTW Chicago:

Twenty-one Chicago police officers have been placed into non-disciplinary no-pay status for failing to comply with the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate as of Tuesday, Police Superintendent David Brown announced.
All city employees — including members of the Chicago Police Department — had until last Friday to tell the city whether they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Those who are not can avoid discipline by agreeing to be tested twice a week, on their own time and at their own expense, until Dec. 31.
According to Brown, about 67% of officers have provided their vaccination status to the city, and of those 82% are vaccinated. But 21 officers have refused to share their vaccination status with the city.
“This is about officer safety,” he said. “We believe the work of either getting our employees to enter their information into the portal then provide twice-a-week testing will save lives.”
As bad as Mayor Lightweight is, Cook County's so-called prosecutor, fellow Democrat Kim Foxx, is worse. But Lightfoot rarely criticizes Jussie Smollett's protector and she even endorsed Foxx for reelection last year.

They’re hiring in Indiana. Get the hell out of Chicago. Low taxes, and no mandates
