About 100 people gathered in front of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) headquarters on September 8 to protest the CCP (Communist Party of China) government’s policy of forcing frontline officers such as police officers and health workers to be vaccinated against the virus . .
California has made steady efforts over the past few months to implement a mandatory vaccine policy. On August 5, California Department of Public Health officials demanded that all healthcare workers be fully vaccinated by September 30, leading to protests from hundreds of health workers.
At the local government level, the Los Angeles City Council passed a mandatory policy on August 18 requiring all employees, including police and fire departments, to be fully vaccinated by early October, except for those receiving exemptions.
At Wednesday’s protest, a plainclothes police officer, who asked for anonymity, told The Epoch Times that LAPD officers are now in a situation similar to health care workers in California, who have to be “vaccinated” or “evacuated” between have to choose.
Jesse Brewer, a local resident in protest, said that “the real pandemic, especially here in Los Angeles, is crime, homelessness and drugs, and those are things we need our law enforcement to be able to engage in. We They don’t need to be concerned about side effects from unproven medical injections.”
“It’s just crazy because they’re the ones who take care of us, they’re the ones who keep us safe.”
Brewer noted that the current vaccine is a ‘zero liability’ product, in which vaccine companies are protected from liability for death, disability, and serious adverse reactions that occur after people are vaccinated.
Since there are risks, she said, “Please don’t make it mandatory, it should be everyone’s choice.”
Policy protests: Some nurses don’t trust vaccines
Another local resident, Katie T. told The Epoch Times that she was against mandatory vaccines.
“It’s a new vaccine, clinical trials haven’t been completed,” said Katie, who works as a nurse, adding that she doesn’t trust the vaccine. She said there have been plenty of cases of death or serious adverse reactions to the vaccine, and notable reports of young people suffering symptoms from rare forms of heart disease.
“I think it’s wrong, it’s our body, it’s our choice,” she said.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website shows that, as of August 25, 1,377 cases of myocarditis or pericarditis in vaccine recipients aged 30 years and younger have been reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). . The majority of men are teenagers.
“It’s nonsense to call it a vaccine,” said Ken Hodge, a registered nurse with nearly 20 years of experience.
“A vaccine would give you immunity to the actual virus,” he said. “It’s not giving you any immunity, it’s not killing it, you’re still going to be able to spread it, you’ll still be able to get it. In my unit, I’d say a third to half of the patients who come in.” are fully vaccinated, and they are still dying.”
The Guardian reported on 10 August that Professor Andrew Pollard, head of the Oxford Vaccine Group, provided evidence to members of parliament that the vaccine did not stop the spread of the coronavirus.
Hodge, who remained in his post during the outbreak, said, “We don’t have the mortality rate that the news is portraying.”
“People die of flu every year. In the last 18 months, we haven’t had any flu patients. I don’t know how it happened. COVID miraculously got rid of flu?”
California government data shows that, as of September 9, 68 percent of Californians have been fully vaccinated against the CCP virus, and another 10 percent have been partially vaccinated. Meanwhile, California still has the highest number of confirmed cases in the country, at more than 4.32 million. The total number of deaths from the virus stood at 66,700 – the highest in the country.
Previously, California lawmakers attempted to implement the AB455 Vaccine Passport proposal statewide, but it was temporarily postponed amid resistance from all sides.
