King County Sheriff’s Deputy Jessy Bailey announced his resignation via a TikTok video, saying that he was quitting over the county’s vaccine mandates even though he is already fully vaccinated.

Bailey said that the county’s extreme mandates was crushing morale and he said that King County Sheriff Mitzi G. Johanknecht had no clue just how destructive her policies have been for her officers.

“Mitzi G. Johanknecht has absolutely has no idea what has been going on with the morale of the department,” Bailey said in an interview with KIRO radio on Thursday.

Bailey added that officers feel that the department is headed in the wrong direction under Johanknecht. But one of the last straws is this political vaccine mandate.

“But now with this mandate for the shot, … for the actual people that are going to calls and doing all the things we do, … morale is lower than anything I’ve ever seen in 30 years of service, and the sheriff has no idea,” Bailey noted.

“Instead, she’s sending threatening emails out,” he continued. “This was my dream job, even after the whole time I was in the Army. All I ever thought about being a cop, it was my dream. And it’s slowly, … from Ferguson forward, just started to turn into a nightmare.”

“The email that she sent out that was very threatening,” Bailey said. “It was a very ‘get the shot, or get out.’ Here’s my thing, and I might know a thing about leadership. Why couldn’t [she] say, ‘hey, I’m sorry guys. I’m sorry that you have to get this shot. I’m sorry. There’s been mandates by Dow Constantine and everybody else. My door is open for you for the ones that want to talk.’”
