USPS Suspends Services Due To “Safety Concerns”

Since the beginning of October, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has suspended services in at least seven different states over “safety concerns.”

Just last week, the USPS announced that several more post offices in Louisiana and Tennessee were no longer open to customers. The Postal Service said “operations are temporarily suspended” at the post office in Evangeline, Louisiana.

“Due to safety concerns, retail operations have been temporarily suspended at the Evangeline Post Office,” the USPS wrote in a news release. “Until repairs can be made to the postal facility, Evangeline customers can pick up their Post Office Box mail and obtain retail services at the Jennings Post Office.”

The USPS issued another update on Oct. 31, alerting customers that operations at multiple facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee were “temporarily suspended until further notice.”

“We apologize for any inconvenience customers may experience, but the safety of both customers and employees is our highest priority.,” the USPS wrote.

The Postal Service’s announcement came shortly after a Chattanooga Post Office employee fatally shot his supervisor after a heated argument at their workplace. The shooting took place on Oct. 30, ABC News reported.

Earlier in Oct., the USPS also announced post office closures in Mosinee, Wisconsin; Grandview, Iowa; Pemberton, Ohio; Stanley, New York; and Birmingham, Alabama.

According to the Postal Service, the Mosinee Post Office was closed following “structural damage to the lobby caused by a vehicle impact.” Building fires prompted the suspension of services in Grandview and Pemberton. Meanwhile, the USPS said the closure in Stanley was due to “unforeseen roof repairs.” The most recent closure in Birmingham was made “in an abundance of caution.” The USPS told a local news outlet that structural issues at the facility were causing a safety concern.

    More garbage from liberals trying to screw things up no doubt.

    1. Peter says:

      AGREE, 100 PERCENT!!!!!

  2. Hugh says:

    The article leads with a shooting and then a vehicle running into a building, then mentions several other closing (structural damage, roof damage) but does not say if these were caused by terrorists or faulty maintenance. I find this to be very poor reporting.

  3. Sam R says:

    Main Stream Media is not interested in any facts that can not be used against Republicans, MAGA or conservatives. I’m just as DONE with MSM as I am with Democrats and the Chinese gov.

  4. Ann Bollinger says:

    Any chance these closures cover up cheating on mail in ballots??

    1. jamesy says:

      NOW, that’s a good thought! I wondered how the mail in ballots would be sabotaged this time!

    2. Mark Davison says:

      Which is why I drove our ballots to the nearest Ballet Drop Bow

      1. Mark Davison says:

        Bow should be Box

  5. I am hoping after the election is over the GOP will be gung-ho on using the 67% rule and get some things changed. Al the executive orders that were not constitutional be over turned.
    Also hope some real journalists come forward and start telling us the truth about what is going on.

    For all you uninformed who voted for the traitor China joe and the other demoncRATs for the first time in history the mail does not get delivered. Hope you have learned how to vote by now.

    I would be interested to know if these USPS locations are in majority red or blue areas of the particular state.
