Let me get this straight: we have to wear masks because A) it's a statewide mandate to help slow the spread of new COVID cases, and B) because we live in a society, and it's the right thing to do.

But you Portland cops do not have to wear masks (or get vaccinated) if you don't want to, because... you're, what? special?

I want a job, with strong union protection, that pays sick amounts of money and health and retirement bennies, where I can bully and bash people, defy local citizen and federal DOJ oversight, break several laws, get the city to pay the resulting court settlements, and where I don't have to actually do what I was hired to do without fear of getting fired.

Actually, I wouldn't want that job... because, unlike Portland cops, I have a modicum of integrity and a work ethic.
