Hi Chuck
The Menlo Park City Council
and their police department need to hear what you are saying loud and clear. And remember, the core principal of the 1st Amendment is the right to criticize government official (including police and enabling members of the city council), even if your verbal criticisms are construed as harsh and unpleasantly pointed.

>> Hi Chuck,
>> I think this is the case you referred to in your letter. Aram

>>> Anger among many blacks in Cleveland toward the police has risen in recent weeks after the fatal shooting of the 12-year-old African-American boy, Tamir Rice, on Nov. 22 by an officer within two seconds after arriving in a patrol car.
>>>
>>> The police said the boy, who had what turned out to be a replica gun that shoots small plastic pellets but looks like a semiautomatic pistol, was told to raise his hands but instead reached to his waistband for the replica. Surveillance video of the killing released last week showed, however, that the shooting happened so fast, it was hard to know whether the officer issued any real warnings or whether the boy could have understood them if he did.
>>>
>>> The officer had quit a suburban police force after his supervisors determined two years ago that he had had a “dangerous loss of composure” during firearms training and was emotionally unprepared to cope with stresses of the job, records show. The Cleveland police acknowledged that they had never reviewed the previous police personnel file of the officer, Tim Loehmann, 26, during background checks before his hiring.
