First the Sheriff’s Deputies at the Board of Supervisors all but high-five the “Zapatistas” in the board chambers as the group of malcontents enters to disrupt the orderly process of public meetings.
Now we have RPD putting out what can only be called false and misleading statements about the Zapata-Blaze incident with a clear and decided tilt in favor of Zapata. And we have a very mealy-mouthed “explanation” of what the RPD “really” meant in their Facebook post.
Politics has no place in professional law enforcement and even hint of bias is antithetical to the mission of policing.
Time for local law enforcement to “stop smoking and joking” with one side and leaving the rest of us wondering what we’re paying for when it comes public safety.
