Up to 6,500 Chicago cops could be placed on unpaid leave for thumbing their noses at the city's just-expired deadline to get the COVID vaccine after the police union president warned Mayor Lori Lightfoot of a possible strike, resulting in a judge issuing a temporary restraining order against the cop late Friday night.
The feud between Lightfoot and head of the Chicago Branch of the Fraternal Order of Police John Catanzara escalated when Lightfoot brought the fight to court and filed a Complaint for Injunctive Relief against the police union and Catanzara.
She said in Thursday's filing that the police union president was 'engaging in, supporting, and encouraging a work stoppage or strike'.

If they go on unpaid leave, they are not coming back. They will head to FL, TX, SC, ND, or OK.
Do it, brothers!
Do it, police.
Let the liberal SOBs watch the burn.
We respect you.
Your mayor, however, can eat s*** and die.
I could be mistaken, but from what I have read it may not be 50% that are refusing the vax. They are refusing to turn over their papers.
It is highly likely that 80%+ of our front line people - doctors, nurses, fireman, police - were already infected and recovered from the virus. The policy is stupid for too many reasons to list.
They should be ok. They have tough gun laws./s
They should do it!
Let Chicongo rot as an example to all.
And at their picket lines they can carry signs saying "SIX MONTHS AGO WE WERE HEROES!
too bad that second city cop blog shut down....i liked to read the real scoop of Chicago
I wonder if any of those are on her security detail.
Cops already dislike, nay, hate Groot!
Groot ain’t very good at this, is it?
people should depart from corrupt, ideological, out-of-touch institutions.
No amount of money will protect you when they ultimately collapse.
Not showing proof of shots is an interesting way to push back on the mandates.
Those that recovered wouldn’t have anything to show except T-cell (or IgG IgM for recent infection) antibody tests.
Lightloafers got the FOP union president slapped with a restraining order to shut him up. Because he has not only been urging the members (who hate her anyway) to stand up against this, but that even prior to this no one is entering the police academy. She can’t replace them unless she starts deputizing gangbangers...
Oh, well. If there are half as many police, there will be half as much crime, right?
