A Washington State trooper’s sign-off video has gone viral. The video was shared by Jason Rantz of KTTH Radio and has more than 1.2 million views.
In the video, the Washington State trooper of 22 years says it is the last time he’ll be heard in his patrol car and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee can “kiss my ass.”
Inslee issued an order for state workers to show proof of vaccine by Oct. 18 a couple of months ago. Or, they would lose their jobs.
In the video, the trooper is heard saying:
“This is my final sign-off. After 22 years of serving the citizens of the state of Washington, I am being asked to leave because I am dirty. Numerous fatalities, injuries. I’ve worked sick; I’ve played sick; we’ve buried lots of friends over these years. (I’d) like to thank you guys; I’d like to thank the citizens of Yakima County as well as my fellow officers within the valley. Without you guys I wouldn’t have been very successful, and you kept me safe and got me home to my family every night. Thank you for that.
“Um, wish I could say more but this is it, so, state 1034, this is the last time you’ll hear me in a state patrol car. And Jay Inslee can kiss my ass.”
“This is the last time you’ll hear me in a patrol car and Jay Inslee can kiss my ass.”

The dispatcher thanked him for his service and recapped some of his experiences.
“You’ve been a great role model and a mentor for all the young troopers serving in the area by sharing your knowledge and experience throughout the years,” she said. “Thank you for your service.”
