Former Washington State Trooper Robert LaMay, who went viral when he was forced out of his job for refusing to get vaccinated against coronavirus, has died of COVID-19. He was 50 years old.

“I am deeply saddened over the news that our former friend and colleague Trooper Robert LaMay has passed away,” State Patrol Chief John Batiste said in a statement on Friday. “This agency’s prayers and remembrances are with his family and loved ones.”

Just once, I wish the people giving these heartfelt condolences would also say something to the effect of, “This is a good reminder for people to get vaccinated. If [insert name] had been vaccinated, he might be with us today. He died senselessly.” Then again, I don’t know, maybe it’s “too soon” to be that realistic, and people can’t handle reality or a pragmatic statement like that.


LaMay joined the Washington State Patrol in May 1999 but was forced to retire in October after refusing to get vaccinated against COVID-19. His final radio call, in which he told off Governor Jay Inslee, went viral online.

The video was viewed millions of times and LaMay appeared on multiple TV shows, including on Fox News, where he said he and his family “don’t do vaccines.” His Facebook page was deleted earlier this month when he reportedly fell ill with COVID-19 and was put on a ventilator.
