At a time when Los Angeles County is experiencing skyrocketing crime, homelessness, and blatant theft, its county supervisors have considered firing thousands of peacekeepers assigned to them. intensive training, for not implementing controversial COVID measures.
Yes, even though homicides in Los Angeles County have increased by 94% over the past two years, ordinances from their politicians must be followed or county employees could be terminated.
They plan to fire a large number of officers, when The Los Angeles Police Department has 296 vacant officer positions and nearly 500 officers on duty less than this time last year, will only disturb county affairs.
The shortfall is due to budget cuts, the challenge of the pandemic, and large numbers of retirements following a lack of support during and after the 2020 riots that preceded the death of George Floyd in police custody.
The BLM and ANTIFA took advantage of the situation, sending thousands of their activists into the streets to call for reform while demanding the destruction of police departments. Radical city councils in the US, including Minneapolis, MN, have resulted in significant layoffs for their police while trying to move to community-based alternatives.
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted 4-0 Tuesday to allow civil administrators to fire up to 4,000 members of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) who have since resigned. refuse to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
Local ABC Branch KABC-7 report:
Supervisors Sheila Kuehl and Holly Mitchell made the recommendation, saying employee vaccine compliance across the county “remains a challenge four months after its enactment.”
They noted that as of February 1, 81.5% of the county’s 100,000 employees were fully vaccinated as required by the mission.
But in the sheriff’s department, less than 60 percent of the staff are complying with vaccine regulations.
The proposal directs district attorneys to work with the CEO and human resources director to develop proposed amendments to the county Civil Service rules, giving the human resources director “the authority to law on employees of any part of the county for failure to comply with county policy or related policy directives. ”
The vote was met with opposition from LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva, who has refused to enforce vaccine regulations among his officers, just as he has refused to enforce the regulations. about the coronavirus on local businesses during the pandemic.
Villanueva released a statement to protest the council’s decision, which came during a crime wave in the county:
Today, the Board of Supervisors approved their threat and voted 4-0 (1 abstention) to form a suicide pact and begin the process of firing 4,000 delegates for not being vaccinated. Showing deliberate indifference to the apparent impact on public safety, the Council concealed an alleged threat to public safety that they could not back up with data. Intriguingly, the District Counsel of the Board (Rodrigo Castro-Silva) cannot even provide a basic legal opinion on the legitimacy of the Board’s proposal, or the challenges The obvious legal consequences they will have to face.
The board of directors, who ignored the comments made by thousands of voters today during their meeting, is now seeking to fire the very staff who have been forced to work face-to-face, exposed to the virus. COVID-19 in the absence of a vaccine, while Supervisors and most of the workforce have escaped from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Supervisor Kuehl falsely asserted in his petition that LASD employees represent 74% of County employees are infected, ignoring the simple fact that most infections occur. during the pre-vaccination period.
It is important to remember that Department employees who have chosen not to be vaccinated are required to submit weekly COVID testing records and are not subject to administrative violations.
This is nothing more than another politically motivated stunt by the Board of Directors, which has no impact on public health but will inevitably compromise public safety.
The proposal will be put before the Oversight Council on March 15 for a final vote.
The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) issued a statement in response to the Council vote:
Homicide murders in Los Angeles County have increased by 94% over the past two years, but that hasn’t stopped the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors terminated 4,000 police chiefs last night.
Or will they stay silent and do nothing as crime continues to increase across Southern California?
