A Washington State Patrol officer who refused to comply with the state’s vaccine mandate last signed on Friday and sent a strong message to Governor Jay Inslee, according to a report.
Robert LaMay, the officer, filmed his latest shipment in a video obtained by Jason Rantz, host on KTTH 770 / 94.5FM in Seattle. He thanked his fellow officers but said he had been asked to leave “because I am dirty”.

He said he worked sick and buried a lot of friends over the past 22 years of service. He acknowledged that it was the effort of the whole team that had brought him home safely every night to be with his family.
“I wish I could say more, but that’s the way, state 10-34, that’s the last time you’ll hear me in a state patrol car. And Jay Inslee can kiss my a– . “
On Monday, Washington will demand that more than 800,000 workers in the state be fully vaccinated or have received an exemption and work accommodation in order to keep their jobs.
The mandate applies to most state employees, long-term care employees, teachers, and staff in state schools, including state colleges and universities. The only opt-out option is a medical or religious exemption, although the exemption only guarantees continued employment if a work arrangement can be made.
Inslee’s did not immediately respond to a Fox News inquiry.
Compulsory vaccination has been a source of contention on both sides. Opponents say the orders infringe their personal freedoms, while supporters insist mandatory vaccinations are needed to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic.
Q13Fox reported that the tenure for workers in Washington state is Monday and if they don’t comply, they could lose their jobs. About 90% of the state’s workforce has been vaccinated.
