Police And Mayor In Standoff Over Shots
As the age of COVID rolls on, workers in multiple industries are flat out refusing to be shot up with experimental gene therapies regardless of rules and “mandates” declared by various public officials. The declared federal mandate does not appear anywhere on government websites, so the heads of companies and local officials claiming to be enforcing the federal mandate are really just playing along.
Such is essentially the case in the City of Chicago where the mayor wants city employees shot up. The head of the police union has other ideas and has voiced his opposition to any mandate. Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who really could pass for a sibling of a character in a Tim Burton movie, filed for and has received, a restraining order on John Catanzara.
Cook County Circuit Court Judge Cecilia Horan ruled there was potential irreparable harm if local Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara persisted in making such statements. City attorneys argued they were tantamount to him advocating “sedition” and “anarchy” because he was directing members to disobey an order from their superiors.
The court actions and mutual name-calling were indicative of a growing standoff between the city and the police union over the vaccine mandate, which has escalated in recent days even after Lightfoot agreed to give employees the option of submitting to COVID-19 testing for the rest of the year if they’re not yet fully vaccinated.
“As Chicago’s Mayor, I cannot and will not stand idly by while the rhetoric of conspiracy theorists threatens the health and safety of Chicago’s residents and first responders,” Lightfoot said in a statement issued Friday morning. Catanzara “has time and again deliberately misled our police officers by lying about the requirements of the policy and falsely claiming that there will be no repercussions if officers are insubordinate and refuse to follow a City and Department directive or order,” she said.

He also referred to the Lightfoot administration as a “dictatorship” and complained that First Deputy Police Superintendent Eric Carter is “threatening officers with termination carrying the mayor’s water.”
Things are certainly getting interesting in the Windy City.
