A Saul Alinsky group fronting for the radical Black Lives Matter called “Fix SAPD” has started gathering signatures over Labor Day weekend for a petition aimed at dismantling the San Antonio Police Officers Association in San Antonio. BLM groups across the nation are engaged in similar efforts as another way to defund and dismantle police departments. It also leaves police officers vulnerable to the liberal/leftist Democrats that run the city.
Fix SAPD claims they don’t want to abolish the police but want “police accountability.” However, their supporters continually scream to "abolish" the police and defund the police department. Their dislike for law and order is seen in their disruptive and lawless behavior, including protesting in quiet neighborhoods and removing statues.
Attacking SAPOA is meant to leave the individual police officers at the mercy of a liberal/leftist city government that has openly sided with Black Lives Matter. Their anti-police attitude is seen in their actions, comments, and policies.
The citizens of San Antonio need a strong police force with high morale, and SAPOA helps to provide that support for officers. If SAPOA is abolished, it will be difficult for the city to recruit and hire good quality officers, and public safety will suffer.
Instead of abolishing an organization that supports law and order like SAPOA, citizens should oppose one that encourages lawlessness, that excuses and justifies racial strife, and which demand taxpayer money to promote their anti-America agenda.
The citizens and voters of San Antonio must oppose “Fix SAPOA” and not sign their anti-police petition.
“Hell” knows no fury like a scorned woman, and Sculley has been “scorned” by the Firefighters’ and Police officers’ association and the taxpayers of the San Antonio. They caused her to lose several political fights at SA City Hall and eventually her job.
In Sculley’s book “Greedy Bastards,” she spins her version of events and claims the police and firefighters prevented her from better serving the City. She focuses on their “greed” for not renegotiating their contracts, which she claimed hurt the City financially.
However, Sculley ignores some critical points. Public safety is a reason for paying local taxes. Unlike downtown redevelopment, Pre-K for SA, and a land bridge for deer, public safety is an essential service that a local government should provide its citizens.
San Antonio City Councilwoman Jada Andrews-Sullivan, a Black Democrat, presented a city resolution declaring racism, a public health crisis. The proposed resolution claims the City should do something about minorities suffer from stress due to racism and discrimination.
However, this is more forced social engineering, which will expand the city government and reduce personal freedoms. The proposed resolution has passed a committee review, and it has been referred to the City Council for approval.
Andrews-Sullivan dramatically said, “We have to address the demon that is before us, and we have to slay the dragon because we are Goliaths in this war, and that’s what we’re doing by declaring racism as a public health crisis.” She claims the resolution is “inclusive,” but ironically, it downplays help for whites.
While leftist radicals led by Black Lives Matter agitators demand the City of San Antonio defund the SA Police Department, the carnage and violence in the streets worsen. The following is a list of the crimes reported by the local news media between Friday, Aug. 22, at 10:30 pm through Sunday, Aug. 23 at 4 am. It is not a complete list because the local news does not report some incidents of beatings and robberies.
On Friday, at 10:30 pm, an 18-year-old boy was taken to a nearby hospital after getting shot in the left while walking home from an east-side corner store with friends. The incident happened near Rosemont at Highland Park Apartments in the 1300 block of Rigsby Avenue.
San Antonio City Councilman Roberto Treviño, a radical leftist Democrat, has called for defunding SAPD. Like other major cities across the country, the San Antonio City Council has been pandering to Black Lives Matter and portraying all police and law enforcement officers as racist villains who victimize blacks.
Trevino said, “We must take action and defund the police. Those funds must be reallocated into social services that support our community. We have an opportunity to make changes to the upcoming bargaining contract agreement. Change can happen the moment we take action, and this action is long overdue.”
Attacking the police officers’ pension is a backdoor approach to defund and discourage the officers. Be assured that the BLM and leftists’ goal is to abolish the police altogether.
