My problem with this is that it is a slippery slope into the issue of never being able to fire anybody in this category without being sued.... whether or not they are performing their job well. Why does any group get more protections than another? This shouldn’t be the case anymore than somebody being more harshly punished because they assaulted or killed a cop vs any other citizen. Nobody’s life is worth more than another’s... nor is their job more important than the next person’s. You want equality? That means no special treatment. No extra privileges. No special protections. THAT is equality. Sorry. Not sorry.
