In war-declaring bold type that crackles with rage, the radically left-wing local newspaper headlines, FEDS INVESTIGATE PHOENIX POLICE.
The U.S. Department of Justice, headed by leftist Merrick Garland issued a press release titled, “Justice Department Announces Investigation of the City of Phoenix and the Phoenix Police Department.”
Included in the announcement are these words, “Department of Justice officials informed Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, PhxPD Chief Jeri Williams, and other City officials of the investigation. As part of this investigation, the Department of Justice will reach out to community groups and members of the public to learn about their experiences with PhxPD.”
Democrat Mayor Kate Gallego responded by “welcoming” the investigation“ rather than standing up for the Phoenix Police, who work tirelessly, putting their lives on the line along with their uniforms each day as they respond to ever-increasing crime in our city. This is her statement, (click to enlarge) unprofessionally released via twitter. Notice her media contact is Jeanine L’Ecuyer, reshuffled after earlier serving as former Gov. Janet Napolitano’s director of communications and later as deputy chief of staff. Napolitano, known as J-No for her rabid wielding of her veto pen, was the worst Arizona governor in memory.
This incendiary statement condemning “police violence” was sent out by Phoenix City District 8 Councilman Carlos Garcia. Born in Mexico, where violent drug cartels are in control, he has worn a black T-shirt that says “End Police Brutality” to council meetings.
It’s worth noting that Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams, who called on the FBI to investigate a police shooting last year, is black. Her husband Cody, was formerly a Phoenix City Councilman. He is now a South Phoenix Justice of the Peace, running as a democrat.
