SAN JOSE CHIEF-NOT PROTECTING CITIZENS

Garcia_Edgardo_Chief-200dsLAST WEEK A TRUMP RALLY IN SAN JOSE WAS ROCKED BY PROTESTERS WHO ATTACKED AND FOUGHT WITH TRUMP SUPPORTERS WHO PLANNED ON ATTENDING THE RALLY.

ABOUT 250 SAN JOSE POLICE OFFICERS STOOD BY WHILE THE ATTACKS TOOK PLACE.  NO OFFICERS ATTEMPTED TO INTERCEDE AS THE CROWD WAS ENTERING AND EXITING THE VENUE.

WHEN QUESTIONED ABOUT THE TEPID POLICE RESPONSE, SAN JOSE POLICE CHIEF, EDDIE GARCIA, COMMENDED HIS OFFICERS FOR SHOWING RESTRAINT.  HE ALSO STATED THAT THE OFFICERS REFUSED TO BREAK FROM THEIR “SKIRMISH LINE” TO BREAK UP NEARBY ATTACKS BECAUSE THEY WEREN’T LIFE THREATENING AND “ADDITIONAL FORCE CAN INCITE MORE VIOLENCE IN THE CROWD.” HUH??  WHAT??

I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK WITH A FEW SAN JOSE POLICE OFFICERS…THEY ARE TOTALLY DISGUSTED WITH THE NON-PALATABLE ORDERS THEY HAD TO FOLLOW.

THE SAN JOSE MAYOR FOLLOWED UP WITH A STATEMENT THAT “DONALD TRUMP NEEDS TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE IRRESPONSIBLE BEHAVIOR OF HIS CAMPAIGN.”

LOOKS LIKE THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT NEED TO TAKE (IR)RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR BEHAVIOR IS THE CHIEF AND THE MAYOR.  THEY BOTH FORGOT THAT THE ETHOS OF A POLICE DEPARTMENT IS TO “SERVE AND PROTECT.”

GLAD I DON’T LIVE IN OR AROUND SAN JOSE AND THAT I HAVE NEVER MET THESE TWO CHARLATANS!!

STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP AND WEAR YOUR VEST!!
