This is the latest protest against C-19 vaccine mandates, and it is extraordinary! But, hysterical
Not all the people in the LAFD think this was funny. In the protest of the mandate, an LA firefighter dropped his pants and wiped his buttock with the noncompliance letter.

His action left a ‘’stain’’ right before he dropped it to the ground, so he was accused of committing a vulgar act and is under investigation now by the department.

Los Angeles Times reported:
The LAFD member responded to receiving the noncompliance letter by dropping his pants and wiping his buttocks with the letter, leaving fecal matter on the document, before dropping it to the ground, according to the Stentorians of Los Angeles City, a group representing African American firefighters.
The situation underscores the deep resistance among some within the Fire Department over the city’s mandate that employees be vaccinated.
LAFD spokeswoman Cheryl Getuiza said the incident is alleged to have occurred on Nov. 18. “The department is aware of the seriousness of the allegations and took immediate action upon learning of this incident,” she said, declining to comment on the details.
Getuiza said the firefighter is on paid administrative leave and “will face the consequences of any inappropriate acts.” She did not elaborate on specifically what prompted the leave.
An LAFD captain and a chief officer witnessed the incident, the Stentorians said in a statement sent to the Board of Fire Commissioners and city leaders. It took place at Fire Station 69 in Pacific Palisades, the group said.
The Stentorian stated, “The LA City Stentorians are sickened and disgusted by this horrific display of unprofessionalism.” They added, “To date, we have not heard from anyone from the LAFD administration condemning this act of blatant disrespect and harassment.”
The group pressured the mayor, City Council, and fire commission to react to this embarrassing manner. The Stentorian said that the firefighter’s actions were a terminable offense.
Do these people stand for the best interests of the firefighters?
"The LA City Stentorians are sickened and disgusted by this horrific display of unprofessionalism,"
But it's professional to force medical decisions on people.

Why are the Stentorians a part of this? Also—disrespect I can see, and it was gross, but how was it “harassment”? Or “threatening,” for that matter? https://t.co/iPtWGhcNEk

The Daily Wire reported:
In October, the L.A. City Council approved a plan that pushed back the deadline given for city workers to get vaccinated against COVID-19 to December 18. The initial cutoff date was October 20. However, the extension came with a price for unvaccinated holdouts who have $65 deducted from their paychecks twice a week to cover the costs of COVID-19 testing.
City workers who have not requested an exemption or already provided evidence of vaccination must “show proof of full compliance” by December 18, the updated plan says, adding, failure to comply with the requirements “shall result in appropriate and immediate corrective action.”
“Employees must be vaccinated by December 18, and we are putting a rigorous testing program into place in the meantime,” said Democratic Mayor Eric Garcetti in a statement issued last month. “Let me be clear: any employee who refuses to be vaccinated by this date should be prepared to lose their job.”
