This Is Horrible

And we don’t need the mandate.

13-Year-Old Watches Father Die As Seattle Staffing Crisis – PJ Media

It’s one thing to not be able to get a table in your favorite restaurant due to these mandates, but if you can’t get help in an emergency, we need to re-think this whole thing. People are dying because of the mandate. Not because we don’t have one, but because we do.

The vaccine mandate and a cut in funding in Seattle have led to massive staffing shortages that have cost lives.

The mandate took 100 officers off the streets in Seattle in October, leaving the police department with less than 1,000 active-duty officers. Coupled with a cut in funding for emergency services as a result of the defund-the-police movement, the crisis has led to at least one preventable death.

Last week, the Seattle fire department received a 911 call from a 13-year-old boy at 1:24 p.m. who said his father was experiencing a “medical emergency.”

By 1:26, a unit was dispatched to the address — but not a medic. Two firefighters were sent to the address that had an outdated “cautionary note” for the apartment. A former occupant had made threats to first responders.

The firefighters were instructed to wait for a police patrol to arrive because of the cautionary note. Vital minutes passed as the young man called 911 twice more worried that his father was getting worse.

Finally, disobeying procedure, the firefighters entered the house at 1:39 p.m. They started CPR immediately. Four additional firefighters showed up a minute later. But it wasn’t until 1:45 p.m. that the police and medics arrived on the scene. They worked on the man for an hour but couldn’t save him.

This is crap.
