After dozens of Massachusetts Highway Patrol troopers resigned in the face of the mandatory COVID vaccine that takes effect in October, one freedom-loving person came to their rescue…
In response to the resignations, South Dakota Republican Governor Kristi Noem tweeted:
“We value freedom, personal responsibility and law and order here in South Dakota,” adding “I would like to personally invite each of you to come and join our law enforcement community here.”
In a statement, the State Police Association of Massachusetts explained the development:
Throughout COVID, we have been on the front lines protecting the citizens of Massachusetts and beyond. Simply put, all we are asking for are the same basic accommodations that countless other departments have provided to their first responders, and to treat a COVID related illness as a line of duty injury.
To date, dozens of troopers have already submitted their resignation paperwork, some of whom plan to return to other departments offering reasonable alternatives
