Police Warn of ‘BLOOD BATH’ on the Streets of Chicago As Mayor’s Vax Mandate Kicks In

Chicago Police Union warns of blood bath on the streets as Mayor's vax mandate goes into effect

Chicago’s police union is urging members to “hold the line” and refuse to submit to Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate.

Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara warned that there will likely be a bloodbath in Chicago this weekend due to Lightfoot’s orders.

Lightfoot announced in August that all city employees – including police and firefighters – must show proof of being vaccinated by Friday, October 15 or face being placed on unpaid leave.

Lightfoot threatened cops, warning, “There will be consequences if people are not complying with what the policy is by the Oct. 15th deadline.”

Breitbart.com reports: For his part, Catanzara blasted the mayor for her intransigence and accused the city of refusing to “bargain in good faith over this subject.”

“It is the city’s clear attempt to force officers with a ‘chicken little, the sky is falling,’ into compliance – do not fall for it. Hold the line,” Catanzara said, according to WGN Channel 9.

The union chief added that FOP lawyers are filing a class action lawsuit against the city over the mandate and said that they could lose “everything under the sun” if such a mandate is allowed to pass.

Catanzara warned that the city may suffer from fewer officers on the job.

“It’s safe to say that the city of Chicago will have a police force at 50% or less for this weekend coming up,” Catanzara said. “That is not because of the FOP. That is 100% because of the mayor’s unwillingness to budge from her hard line.”

“I can guarantee you that no-pay status will not last more than 30 days,” Catanzara added. “There’s no way they’re going to be able to sustain a police department workforce at 50% capacity or less for more than seven days without something budging.”

Catanzara also said that if officers stood together, the mayor’s no-pay policy would collapse.

The mayor insisted that she was going to “hold people accountable” and blasted the union for endangering people.

“It’s unfortunate that the FOP leadership has chosen to put out a counternarrative,” Lightfoot said, “but the fact of the matter is that if you are not vaccinated, you are playing with your life, the life of your family, the life of your colleagues and the members of the public.”
