Port of Seattle Police recently suspended an officer who went on Instagram expressing his opposition to the tyrannical lock down because of the coronavirus.
In his video, Greg Anderson asked fellow police officers to “quit trampling on people’s liberties.” He added:
“I’ve seen officers nationwide enforcing tyrannical orders against the people and I’m hoping it’s the minority of officers, but I’m not sure anymore.”
“Because every time I turn on the television, every time I look to the internet, I’m seeing people arrested or cited for going to church, for traveling on the roadways, for going surfing, opening their businesses, going to park with their families, or doing nails out of their own house—using their own house as a business and having special agents go there and arrest them.”
“We don’t get to violate someone’s constitutional rights because somebody in our chain of command tells us otherwise.”
The Port of Seattle Police have suspended Anderson after he refused their order to take down the post. In an official statement, the department said it was opposed to the video because Anderson was dressed in his officer’s uniform and in a police car when he made the video.
His union and supervisors have since advised Anderson that he could be terminated for disobeying orders.
