mousegun6 Posted January 11, 2023 at 02:48 PM Share Posted January 11, 2023 at 02:48 PM This is directly from the ISP website: Welcome to the Illinois State Police This is the oath taken by every Illinois State Police Trooper. These men and women take pride in embracing the core values of law enforcement, with the sole objective of being excellent Illinois State Police public service employees. This oath an ongoing and enduring promise of our commitment to the Citizens of the State of Illinois. "I solemnly vow to the people of Illinois, upon my honor as an officer and citizen, to discharge the duties of an officer of the Illinois State Police to the best of my ability, to adhere to the rules and regulations of the Illinois State Police, and to adopt the Agency's mission and goals into my everyday life. I pledge to be honest in thought, word, and deed; to maintain unimpeachable integrity; to be just, fair, and impartial; to be steadfast against evil and its temptations; and to give my utmost to protect the rights, property, and lives of our citizens. I shall strive to give thoughtful, intelligent obedience to the commands of my superiors, to make my conduct friendly but impartial, courteous but firm, and charitable to the inadvertent violator. But I shall never compromise with crime and shall, at all times, uphold the Constitutions and laws of my country and the state of Illinois." They can't follow JB's orders and still be true to their oath to uphold "the Constitution and laws of my country and the state of Illinois." I'm going to say a prayer that they find the wisdom to stand up for freedom and refuse to enforce this law. JB threatened to fire them last night if they didn't enforce this law. I wonder how many of them are having coffee this morning and actually thinking about looking for a better job. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
