“Thank you lord that it’s a controversy in Austin, Texas that we actually have the audacity to touch somebody by the arm and tell them ‘oh my goodness, Austin Police, we’re trying to get your attention. In other cities there’s cops who are actually committing sexual assaults on duty, so I thank God that this is what passes for a controversy in Austin, Texas.”
A classic. “At least we didn’t rape her” as a means of putting an over-zealous jaywalking encounter into perspective—wow. And, as a bonus, Acevedo managed to gratuitously insult his fellow police officers all over America.

Following a shooting in downtown Austin, Texas, the city’s police chief urged residents to be on the lookout for anyone “acting with a lot of hatred towards any particular group.” But he put extra emphasis on one particular group of people — “gun enthusiasts.”

“And that’s why it’s important for us as Americans to know our neighbors, know our families — tell somebody,” Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo said Monday. “If you know somebody that is acting with a lot of hatred towards any particular group- especially if it’s somebody you know is a gun enthusiast or is armed with these type of firearms and they’re showing any kind of propensity for hatred- it doesn’t mean we’re going to take them to jail, but we might want to vet these people.” (Oh, really, for illegal thoughts.....?)

  1. Perhaps he ought to move (back) to Mexico, where the criminals in that government can get away with such talk. Either that or leave a potential greasy spot in Austin.

    This story needs sunlight immediately.
