Los Angeles firefighter accused of wiping his butt with a vaccine mandate letter delivered to him

A Los Angeles firefighter is under investigation for his response to the city’s vaccine mandate. The unidentified LAFD employee, who received a letter of non-compliance from the fire department, pulled down his pants and wiped his buttocks with it, before putting him on the ground.

The incident allegedly occurred at Fire Station 69 in Pacific Palisades.

Los Angeles Stentorians, who represent African-American firefighters in the city, called the incident a “terminable” offense.

“Los Angeles City Stentorians are sick and upset by this horrible display of unprofessionalism,” they said in a statement.

The LA Times reports that the Stentorians took additional action by urging the city mayor, city council, and fire commission to respond immediately to the act. The LAFD spokeswoman said the department is taking the firefighter’s response seriously.

“No matter how our members react, all city employees must comply with city ordinance, whether it is applying for an exemption, getting vaccinated or facing termination,” a LAFD spokesperson told the LA Times.

Those who refuse to comply must be left unpaid and removed from service.
