Washington state has a vaccine mandate in place for all state workers.
This has resulted in firings and resignations of longtime employees, but one state trooper was not going to stay quiet.
A veteran of 22 years, the trooper had a rather harsh message for his governor on his final shift, and now it has gone viral.
State employees had until Monday to get vaccinated or risk losing their jobs.
For those who had their years in, many decided to retire rather than face the ax or the jab.
A Washington state trooper in Yakima County decided to make his last sign off a good one.
In a video that has since gone viral, the veteran trooper stated, “This is my final sign-off after 22 years serving the citizens of the state of Washington, I’ve been asked to leave because I am dirty.”
“Dirty” was in reference to him being unvaccinated.
He added, “Numerous fatalities, injuries, I’ve worked sick, I’ve played sick, buried lots of friends over these years.
“I’d like to thank you guys, as well as the citizens of Yakima County, as well as my fellow officers within the valley.
“Without you guys I wouldn’t have been very successful. You’ve kept me safe and gotten me home to my family every night. Thank you for that.
“Wish I could say more but this is it.
“So State 1034 this is the last time you’ll hear me in a state patrol car.”
“And Jay Inslee can kiss my a**.”
“This is the last time you’ll hear me in a patrol car and Jay Inslee can kiss my ass.”

Thank you for your service, officer, and, hopefully, Governor Inslee got your message!
