‘We don’t get to violate people’s constitutional rights because somebody in our chain of command tells us otherwise. It’s not now this country works.’
Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson posted the following video to Instagram last week. His message in support of individual rights was obviously prompted by coronavirus restrictions on travel, association and other freedoms imposed by state and local governments. But his message applies equally to restrictions on Second Amendment rights.

Here’s that video:

Officer Anderson’s video has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times and drew the attention of his commanders in the police force. They asked him — then ordered him — to take the video down. He refused and has been placed on administrative leave.

‘Greg, If you openly defy your governor, you can’t be a police officer in the State of Washington.’
Yesterday Anderson posted this video:

As Anderson wrote:

I’ve received tons of questions regarding my termination from the Port of Seattle Police. So I figured I should explain. I have been placed on administrative leave (still being paid) pending investigation. I was told by both the agency and my union that this will result in termination due to it being an insubordination charge for refusing to take down the video. I’m not sure what the timeline looks like. I walk un-intimidated into the fray. Thank you for all the support.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to benefit Officer Anderson that has far exceeded the original goal. Something tells us that Officer Anderson will land on his feet.
