GREENBELT, MD – According to a report from The Police Tribune, three Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Police officers who were denied exemptions for the COVID jab were fired as a result of their non-compliance – despite two of those officers reportedly suffering adverse reactions from the first dose of the jab and being instructed by their doctors to avoid shot number two.
Jonathan Ness, who serves as the president of Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 30 that is representing the terminated MNCPP officers, explained to The Police Tribune how the COVID jab mandates came by way of the parent agency of the MNCPP, which is the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (MNCPPC).
Ness said that back in 2021, roughly a dozen MNCPP had sought exemptions for the COVID jab, with all of the officers having received denials across the board in November of 2021.
However, in the issuance of the aforementioned denials, the MNCPPC had allegedly diverted from the standard process associated with administering denials for exemptions, insofar that no formal interviews were conducted with the officers to understand each request individually.
When the FOP applied pressure on the MNCPPC to follow the standard process and afford a proper review of each requested exemption, the agency reportedly issued merely another blanket denial for all of the officers’ requests.
Out of the dozen or so officers denied the exemptions, some had simply opted to concede to the COVID shots while others had simply taken an early retirement.
