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.

Yet three officers’ matters regarding the COVID jab were unresolved.

One of the officers was apparently trying to continue obtaining a religious exemption regarding the shots, whereas two other officers had went as far as getting their first COVID shot but had suffered unspecified adverse reactions.

Whatever the particular adverse events to the shots were, they had both reportedly resulted in their respective doctors advising them to not get the second shot and to also not get any boosters.

By late January, all three of the officers were placed on leave without pay. Attorneys for the FOP had requested that the MNCPPC adhere to the provisions of Maryland’s Law Enforcement Officer’s Bill of Rights, but the MNCPPC apparently abstained from such hearings and simply moved to fire all three officers.

Ness stated that the FOP will be filing show cause orders in Prince George’s and Montgomery County courts in light of the terminations enacted by the MNCPPC, saying that the firing of the officers was a “clear denial of the officers’ due process rights.”

What Ness finds all the more upsetting regarding the actions taken by the MNCPPC is that the counties where these very officers patrol have officers from other departments who are able to remain unjabbed if performing their duties while masked and subject themselves to testing.

“Both counties the officers work in allow their own officers to work masked and tested so why would you hold this department’s members to a different standard in those counties? All three of these officers are hard-working seasoned officers.”

Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
