So, Florida's governor has invited all police officers from other states that are no longer allowed to work without vaccination, to come and work for the Florida police. He even offers them a bonus of 5000 dollars.

Does this mean, that you are rightfully allowed to resist arrest now in Florida, and defend yourself against the police coming within 1.5 meters distance of you by any means nescessary to prevent being infected?

Id's say that unvaccinated police trying to arrest you is attempted murder.

Ha ha but yes.
If all these "libertarians" actually gave a shit about their principles and weren't just racists trying to dodge taxes on the public benefits they exploit, yes.

Obviously the above is satire.  I am not describing libertarian ideals because they literally don't exist.

Edit: A counterpoint would be a self-described libertarian agreeing that it's self-defense to castle-doctrine a potentially plague-bearing cop.  But they love the cops sooooo much because their only actual ideal is private property, and the government infrastructure that protects it.

Haha, no. Resisting arrest (even when you didn't commit a crime and the police are obviously intending to) is itself a crime, and an excuse for them to feel threatened enough to legally kill you.

Yes but that law is from the ancient times before police officers could be considered biological weapons in and of themselves. Clearly that law is outdated.

You could go nergalite instead, then you'd just need like a bronze spear or somethin' to be on theme.

... it'd fit a lot better, too, incidentally; Nergal was a historically worshipped god of, among other things, pestilence, war, and the destructive heat of summer (i.e. covid, military fetishism, and global warming), as opposed to a fictional one primarily of disease. If there actually was a runaway cult of Nergal in the modern era, it could comfortably look a hell of a lot like the US conservative movements.

This isn't the first time a governor has made an offer like this to entice police from out of state, and I'm always left with the big question of how they deal with the differences between states. Not every state has the same laws! Though maybe these would be the sorts of officers who aren't as concerned with the letter.

If I was a Florida resident, I'd be asking where he'd be getting the money to offer those bonuses.

Must be nice to be able to promise other people's money for things!

Exactly how many positions does he have open? Is he creating new positions as officers show up?

I'm fairly sure basically no cops in any state actually care much about the letter of the law, these days, so it probably doesn't make much of a difference.

Anyway, so far as payment or placement, deshitis is just writing a check with his mouth that hasn't actually passed the legislature or anything. Until that happens, the answer to any question like that is "No one bloody knows, especially the asshat in the governor's office".

One could make a uninformed guess that the police officers would pass some kind of training in local laws in the least, or a complete retraining, depending on the state they come from.

As for the money, it would seem cheap populism to offer money like that, and I HATE populism. Even if this is targeted to a tiny sliver of the population. Absorbing a large portion of manpower is not a task to be taking ligthly, specially with public funds.

The bottom line is, WTF. I understand people being tired of the masks and in a hurry to take them off, but why the fuck reject a vaccine on the basis of mental control or whatever cheap scifi of excuse can come up? "My body my choice" is such a tired and ridiculous excuse for such serious issues like this or abortion. Its not a raunchy piercing or a stupid tatoo dude. Life's are at risk for your stupid belief.

You are making the mistake that police principally enforce laws.

Their primary purpose in the modern world is to enforce the hegemony of the wealthy.

Any police officer that actually enforces laws will be quickly eliminated from the force, for upsetting such influential people.
