“May Cropley, 71, had been diagnosed with cervical cancer and an autoimmune condition called Good's syndrome, while her 73-year-old husband John suffered from vasculitis - inflammation of the blood vessels - affecting his lungs.”

The wife refused treatment after her husband died. It’s tragic.
I agree. These sensational, anecdotal stories of either anti-vaxxers dying with Covid, or the double vaccinated dying with it - don't add anything to the informed body of scientific opinion. There is ambiguity in the diagnostic rules that the politicians and media loves to play on. Under Australia's diagnostic rules the Cropleys would both have been assigned as Covid-19 deaths. It's meaningless.

More autopsies might give us good data but strangely that idea has not been widely supported.

Maybe , but it would just be better for everyone if we could make them see sense.
Yes it would as there would be less chance of spreading the virus, less of the virus, less chance of it mutating, less risk to the vulnerable, less risk to all of us you may need medical help with other conditions/accidents but hospitals more occupied looking after anti vaxx morons. The damage these dickheads can cause is enormous

NY Post clickbait headline, followed by…


“The environment has been pretty toxic and negative,” an unnamed officer told Fox 13 News. “Not just from this whole mandate, but prior to that as well. I’m not sure this would be a good place for me to work long-term for my mental health. It has been very stressful.”

A total of 292 officers had yet to provide proof of COVID vaccination as of Oct. 6, the station reports. In addition, 111 officers are awaiting the results of exemption requests, said Seattle PD spokesperson Sgt. Randy Huserik.

It wouldn't get past ethics review, but I would love someone to do some research into finding the sweet spot between:

- Having enough people vaccinated so as to mitigate pressure on hospitals and the health system, as well as general spread of the disease and risks of further dangerous mutations.

and

- Allowing enough of a natural 'cull' of the willingly unvaccinated, with all the benefits that would entail.
Give it 6 weeks I think we will find out. Vaccination rollout will have reached those who want it (maybe a few boosters for immune suppression) and there will be maybe 5-10 % who don’t want, now a subset will probably change mind when they see other unvaccinated get sick…

I know most cops are pretty dim, but this seems to be a few people pissed off with a shitty organisation, not sure how many of the 292 are actually not going to get vaccinated.
They have six more days.

" Officers are required to show proof of vaccination or an exemption to the COVID-19 vaccine mandate by Oct. 18, or risk losing their jobs"

I call bullshit.
If there are that many that are 'brave' enough to challenge it I expect the total numbers of anti vax is quite high.


10% doesn't sound far fetched.

Their GoFundMe for lawyers is +100k too.

Why these people are such a danger to the public, the latest evidence suggests that COVID mortality is 2-3x the official figure and the IFR for developing nations is drastically higher than expected.
You can't blame anti vaxxers for that.

IF : Workers are allowed to work without getting the vaccine?
Is the workplace indemnified against any compensation if they are exposed to Covid and become seriously ill in the line of their work?

The best thing about anti vaxxers is the smug tone of voice they have when they tell people that they're in breach of the Constitution or whatever other legal document that they've not understood while everyone else is looking at them and wondering how they get out of bed unaided.

Few blokes getting letters asking their job to take liability if they get sick post vax.

Fair work Australia also made some interesting comments

My favourite is when they reference the Magna Carta.

Back in the day when they were much more fringe in the pre-internet algorithms age, getting corro from one of them was awesome. There'd be words/phrases written in different colours (has legal power that way) and all sorts. Got a couple favourites still that I printed out somewhere.

Libertarians always remind me of the teenager throwing a tantrum because they've been told to tidy their room.
