FYI, @Carla_Sinclair and everyone - this officer’s family and others like him will still get death (or, in less deadly cases, disability) benefits as if they were injured in the line of duty.

I wish this were mentioned in every single story about these anti-vaxx police officers. You don’t want the vaccine? I mean, at the VERY least you should surrender those benefits.

Seriously, it’s getting easier and easier to make last-minute vacation rental reservations the closer I get to the holidays. It’s pretty awesome.

Chronicle Headline: San Francisco police officer dies battling COVID-19 after failing to meet deadline for vaccination

Not getting your vaccinations is not “battling” COVID. It’s lying down and letting it kick your ass.

Don’t tread on me. The soil is still settling over my grave.
I’m sad for his family but glad for another anecdote.

i wonder how many people this guy exposed to the virus before he did what unvaxxed people who get covid oftentimes do?

That seems a little odd if they can’t demonstrate where they contracted it.

I guess that’s one way to get rid of bad cops. Too bad more of them aren’t doing this…

Its defunding and weeding out the bad cops at the same time.

Preaching to the choir.
I can see the logic when we didn’t yet have a safe, free and widely available vaccine. People still had to respond to emergencies, and wouldn’t really know where they contracted the virus.
This law should’ve been amended as soon as the vaccine was widely available.
I’ve called and written to all my representatives about this and heard jack shit back about it other than, “thanks for letting us know about your concern.”

You know, Yakuza only have to get elaborate tattoos to show their loyalty.

Refusing to get vaccinated then dying of COVID seems a bit extreme by comparison.
