was on the Police Review Board, I would spread the word to the council
member who nominated me (so that person could alert the rest of the
council and Mayor) that I would resign if the council voted to confirm
If all the PRB members agreed with that and the council still confirmed
Al, he would be kind of lonely at his meetings.
Also, it would show everyone that sometimes you have to take a stand for
If all the members were brave enough to do this, resign
all at once, no one could call them racist, as the members are
multiethnic. It might create more of a liability for Fantroy than
just having the nerve to nominate Al. Also, it might keep Al from
getting 8 votes. Who knows?
The way things are now, many of us think Al will be confirmed.
Most of the gutless wonders around the horseshoe will not risk
being called a racist by voting against Al.
Hope they prove me wrong.
Council person has their own agenda and their nominee to this board is a
political payoff, not a choice for excellence! The community has to
demand an end to this!
Al could care less! Fantroy and Al simply want to put a stick in the eye
of Dallas Police Association, not address injustices.
FYI-Mary Hasan was Al's black assistant. She is now Fantroy's. She needs
to be called up on charges
of political activity from a city employee, since she was a real Poss
activist, with letters to the Editor and rallying her gang at city hall!
Stalin said to FDR at Yalta, when Churchill & FDR suggested the Pope
would oppose Soviet capture of Poland,
"How many divisions does the Pope have?"
Standing up for what's right, without power and clout, is an exercise in
futility, indulged in by well-meaning, ineffective people, hanging out
their shingle, without hope of winning!
Show me one brave member of that Review board! They have rolled over for
years, just to get access.
Fantroy is paying off a debt to those who want to nail Miller! He could
care less about liability. He thinks he is another Mau
Mau black kicker of white establishment asses!
We need to figure a way to punish Fantroy for his stupidity and also give
him an out to save face!
He ought to appoint Marvin Crenshaw or Roy Williams, who fought with me
honorably for a strong review board in 1988.
there be a public hearing on the nomination or other nominations?
We need to be there, and I want to speak! He will win if we assume he
has the votes!
are gutless wonders out here, too!
