A Port of Seattle police officer made a video urging his fellow officers around the nation to eschew “enforcing tyrannical orders against the people” as a result of stay-at-home and lockdown orders. According to a Go Fund Me page, the officer, Greg Anderson, a reported Special Forces veteran who fought in Iraq, may be terminated from his job because the video was deemed a violation of policy.
In the approximately nine-minute video, Anderson began:
You know, as a police officer, I’m compelled to make this video. I’ve been in law enforcement for ten years, and I’m speaking to my peers, other fellow officers; people in any kind of law enforcement position. I’ve seen police officers nationwide enforcing tyrannical orders against the people, and I’m hoping it’s the minority of officers but I’m not sure anymore, cause 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 the park with their families or doing nails out of their own house, using their own house as a place of business and having undercover agents go there and arrest them and charge them with what? With a crime?
