Default Officer G. Anderson in Washington

I don’t know how many of you have seen this video of a police officer in Washington State discussing how he feels that all of these “Stay at Home” orders, and other oppressive measures that the state governments have taken in the name of “safety” during the Corona Virus outbreak, are unconstitutional. He states that he will not personally enforce them. He also urges other LEO’s to remember the oath to uphold and protect the Constitution that we all swore.



Unfortunately, after initially being praised by the brass on his department, someone on the state level applied pressure to the department and he was subsequently fired today after refusing to remove the video.



This officer showed some real bravery by standing by his beliefs and speaking out against something he felt was extremely wrong. Hopefully he will be able to find a department that will hire him and back him in the ideas he expressed.

Work for the Government play by their rules. He knew he risked his job when he made the video, (A brave thing) but now he's crying and wants a half million go fund me like the lady in Texas. So was he after the payday from the get go??

I admire his character, I wonder if other Police will start standing up now too. I hope he has another job lined up, hopefully someone offers him a job for taking his stance.

If he had done this off-duty he probably would have been fine. Doing it on duty in his uniform and employers vehicle is likely to be a big problem for him. And yes, I agree that I admire his stance. He just chose the wrong time/place to do it.

Sometimes, standing for what you believe means standing alone

Quote is slightly bastardized by Hatebreed I know; but it is still so good IMO

I know Greg. He's a great cop and a great guy. He stands firm in what he believes in.

Gun Guy TV played his video. I saw it and agreed 100% with what he had to say and contributed to his gofundme page.

He'll get his job back if WA is anything like CA. And, unconfirmed that a Lodi copper got fired for same. He will definitely get his job back.

I whole heartedly agreed with his statement. Lots of people bash LE because they “Violate their oath“, then run their suck about how he’s whining and want half a million dollars. This man put his money where his mouth is, a lot more than a lot of people in this world. I donated money to his Go fund me campaign. It took balls to do what he did. He posted on IG that he was flying out to do the cleared hot podcast, so I’m guessing it’ll be out on Monday.

Oh yeah! Believes in the bill of rights and doesn't have an EGO.
