* I checked with the Lightfoot people and here is how the poll question was asked…
Do you support or oppose a coronavirus vaccine mandate for city workers, including first responders?
Mayor Lightfoot's vaccine mandate for city employees is hugely popular in Chicago—69% of voters support it. The policy was developed by our city's leading public health experts and based on science. @ChicagosMayor knows it will keep our city workers and other Chicagoans safe. pic.twitter.com/cUP0bDwwLu

I do think this is true, but you would never know from the press so far. I emailed our ward who is a big backer of the attempted recall of the mandate with my support of the mandate, but my guess would be he hasn’t heard from any in my camp.
I live in a ward of many police and fire.
The people that shout the loudest gets the most attention as always. Basically every poll shows broad support for these mandates, but the quarter to a third that disagree get way more attention because the media has to always present both sides even when one side is small and rabid,
=Can someone explain how police refusing an order from their commander jives with their command structure and their expectation of compliance when giving citizens a directive?=
Same thing is happening in the Air Force right now with other branches of the military likely to follow suit. When these chains of command begin to break down it puts our entire society at risk. The idea that these authorities or elected officials are somehow lacking in legitimate authority should concern all of us.

And they are a loud 21% too.
A silver lining in all this, at least the whackadoo outliers in other areas aren’t as loud.
Nobody is showing up in groups at school board meetings threatening people over the tyranny of ghosts and goblins.
