Dave Leiber, the reporter from the Dallas Morning News, gave an interview this morning on the channel 5 local station regarding the suit and my efforts to get reimbursed for my attorney fees.
The following e-mail has been sent this morning to the House Oversight Committee in hopes that the recently produced documents will help make government accountable.
In December of 2015 you issued the report An Agency in Crisis.
Dan Patrick is an example of all that is wrong with America. As a representative of the State of Texas, he gave this interview:
“Too many in the general public who aren’t criminals but have a big mouth are creating situations like we saw last night,” an emotional Patrick said during an interview with Fox News on Friday. He later added, “All those protesters last night, they ran the other way expecting the men and women in blue to turn around and protect them—what hypocrites!”
“I do blame people on social media with their hatred toward police,” he said. While pointing out that last night’s Dallas protest was peaceful, Patrick said, “I do blame former Black Lives Matter protests.”
It is precisely because Black Men were killed by representatives of law and order that there was a need for a protest and organization called “Black Lives Matter.” Because Dan Patrick is speaking as a representative of the State of Texas, he exacerbates the tragedy. Patrick is an example of all that is wrong with our government.
For the last 6 years I have covered Sarah Palin. I have written about her stupidity and her vulgar comments. I have covered her violations of the law. I have written about the hypocrisy of her attitudes about abstinence, while her children spawned at least four babies out of wedlock. I have covered the Palin family brawl, and Track’s domestic violence. Who could forget her love of guns and constant promotion of the Phrase: “Don’t Retreat, Reload”. I have covered her response to the shooting of Gabby Giffords and the Sandy Lake shooting. However nothing Palin has done in the past compares to the offensiveness of her new Facebook post claiming that BlackLivesMatter is a Farce.
It was NOT Black Lives Matter that killed Dallas Police Officers. It was a lone gunman with an assault weapon.
Dallas Police Chief David O. Brown said Johnson told negotiators before he was killed that he was acting alone and was unaffiliated with any group. Moreover #BlackLivesMatter is a group that advocates dignity, justice and freedom. Not murder.
The shooter was a member of the military. We don’t say that the military is a Farce. Nobody has suggested that the military advocates the senseless killing of police officers. A disproportionate number of African Americans serve in the military (17.8%). Blacks represent 13.2% of the people in America. How often have we heard Sarah Palin say “thank a vet”.
The shooter in Dallas, Micah Xavier Johnson, was sent home by the Army after being accused of sexual harassment by a female soldier. The Army discharged him other than honorably, due to the incident. The victim indicated Johnson needed mental help. She sought a protective order to keep him away from her and her family.
The Dallas Police Chief describes the tragedy for Dallas, Police, the Black Community, and America.
For Sarah Palin to minimize this tragedy is unforgivable! Both police and Blacks feel unsafe. America is in crisis. Police Officers are fearful that they will be killed for the inexcusable conduct of other police. Blacks are fearful that they will be killed because of the pigment of their skin. Simply the phrase “Black Lives Matter” is an indication of the problem. To suggest that the problem is a “farce” puts Sarah Palin into the category of a White Supremacist.
Because she has such a following, her hateful comments exacerbate the pain the country is experiencing. From this point forward, I encourage everyone reading, to refuse to watch any television show Sarah Palin may appear on. Refuse to associate with any political party who gives her a microphone. Any publisher who published one of her books should never be supported with your dollars. Sarah Palin deserves to be marooned on a deserted island, surrounded by sharks, where she is unable to speak to another human being, ever again.
