Seattle police officers unfurl Gadsden flags from patrol cars to protest vaccine mandate

Seattle police officers unfurl Gadsden flags from patrol cars to protest vaccine mandate

Seattle police patrol cars were photographed with Gadsden flags hanging from their windows ahead of Washington state’s vaccine mandate going into effect. 

"Some officers plan on taking time off to decide what they will do long term. They don’t seem eager to stay with SPD. Others explained that they are going to leave the SPD by the end of the year as a result of this," KTTH radio show host Jason Rantz wrote on Twitter, accompanied by the photos. "Officers took these photos in protest of the mandate."

Washington state employees are required to submit proof of vaccination by Monday. Seattle Police Officers Guild President Mike Solan said officers won’t face immediate termination but will face a "Loudermill hearing," where the officers can publicly state why they refused to comply with the mandate before formal separation from the force.
