President Joe Biden arrogantly declared in a CNN town hall event last Thursday that any law enforcement officer who declines to get the COVID jab should be fired.
“Should police officers, first responders be mandated to get vaccines?” asked CNN moderator Anderson Cooper. “And if not, should they be mandated to stay at home, let go?”
“Yes and yes,” Biden replied.
Yes, the President of the United States wants to fire law enforcement officers. This is the White House’s ‘strategy’ when violence is at an all-time high and departments are already struggling to retain their people.
Speaking with the Hammer and Nigel Show Friday, Indiana police officer Ben Pyatt expressed his disappointment with Biden’s comments.
“I never thought I’d live to see the day that a sitting US president would say something like that so flippantly,” Pyatt said. “And to make those comments when violence in our cities, especially Indianapolis, is at its peak – it just doesn’t make any sense at all.”
Pyatt expressed his dismay with how the law enforcement community has been under attack in the last two years from those in positions of political authority.
“It went from ‘Front Line Heros’ to people that [the administration] is willing to throw to the wayside,” he said. “When the majority of people were at home during the lockdowns, we were out there without vaccines. Now you’re saying to fire us?”
Pyatt said he hopes the state of Indiana will push back on Biden’s mandates, but stated unequivocally that he will not be forced into getting the vaccine.
“It’s not going to happen and I sure won’t be made to do it,” he said. “And I’ve heard people say, ‘You’ll lose everything.’
Pyatt’s reply to that: “You’re damn right I will.”
