Anti-vaxx Police Officers Who Contracted Covid.

Updated: Mar 13, 2022

Last year was the deadliest for active-duty law enforcement in nearly a century, with COVID-19 identified as the leading cause of death for both 2020 & 2021. "Some 458 local, state, tribal and federal officers died in the line of duty in 2021, according to a preliminary report from the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum (NLEOMF). That makes an increase of 55% from the previous year's tally of 295 and the highest total number since 1930."

With Covid as the leading cause of death for police, why are police unions still resisting the vaccine? I have some thoughts on this but I'll never comprehend why so many in law enforcement are anti-vaxxers. Today, I'm going to share three stories from anti-vaxx police officers who contracted Covid. Two lost their battle and one is still battling it. Jump to comments.


Wayne Stickels

Name: Wayne Stickels Age: 34 Home: Victorville, California Died: March 1, 2022

Wayne Stickels was a police lieutenant with the Fort Irwin Police Department. Unfortunately, he was also an anti-vaxxer. He leaves behind a wife and two young daughters.

Wayne worked with the Military Working Dog (MWD).

Here are some of his anti-vaxx posts.

Wayne got hospitalized due to Covid at the end of November.

GoFundMe was activated by end of January. Lots of family and friends were asking for prayers.

On January 23, he's finally awake and able to post again on Facebook.

On 2/26, he's back in the ICU.

He sadly passed away on March 1, 2022.


Todd Nestor

Name: Todd Nestor Age: 43 Home: Kingwood, West Virginia Current Condition: Hospitalized

Todd Nestor is a Deputy Sheriff at Preston County Sheriff's Office. He resigned from the Kingwood Police Department due to a dispute with a drug investigation. He later sued the mayor & city council stating that he was forced to resign because he was investigating prominent WV residents. It ended with a settlement out of court.

Todd is married with five children under 18 years old.

Here are his Covid thoughts.

He then shared this on February 26, 2022. He contracted Covid in October 2021. He was hospitalized for almost two months. It sounds like he has a long road ahead of him.

Of course, GoFundMe was activated. He wasn't as popular as Wayne, above.


John Starks

Name: John Starks Age: 70 Home: Jeffersonville, Indiana Died: December 8, 2021

John Starks proudly served as a police officer for the Clark County Sheriff's Department since 1974. That is 47 years in law enforcement. He was known as a workaholic. He leaves behind his wife and two sons.

He was quite the public anti-vaxxer.

He sadly passed away on December 8, 2021. But wait, there's some drama after his passing on his vaccination status.

Line of duty death? After his death, friends shared on FB that he was indeed vaccinated. He made his stance pretty clear on Facebook. Are they saving face? I'll let you decide.

Please get vaccinated. Get your booster.

“Fauci predicted this outbreak before it happened, therefore he is untrustworthy on the topic of outbreaks”

Wow. Logic.

This is a good opportunity to parade out my favorite French, cop who is FULLY VACCINATED AND BOOSTED! Thanks, Laurent, or whatever your name is.

They lie about their getting a shot. It's complete Bullshit that Covid is considered a Line Of Duty Death...The real reason is that if a law enforcement officer dies in the Line Of Duty, he or she's survivors get a check from the federal government in the amount of $250,000.00. That's right $250k. It's your money tax free. This is true, check it out. FUCK them, how does anyone know where they caught the virus. Probably from one thier whores... Just saying.


The amount of the PSOB benefit is $389,825 for eligible deaths occurring on or after October 1, 2021.

Inflation I guess, just like their bellies.

Fuck the police...

There are way more cops who deserve this. Names include but not limit to Daniel Pantaleo, Betty Shelby, Amber Guyger, the killers of Tamir Rice and Stephon Clark and so many more

I wish Covid upon them since the justice system failed

My wife is a recent immigrant from the UK and she just can't believe how immensely fat and grossly out of shape the (seeming) majority of US cops are. She wonders out loud is so many suspects get shot just because the cops are too fucking lazy or pathetically slow to chase anyone. I tell her "no, they shoot people because they're fucking nazi cowards". Maybe it's both?
