Seriously, Ms. Dumanis, do you take me for a fool? I’ve been following enough of what you have done in office to know that your endorsement doesn’t mean much.
Want to talk about bullying? OK, let’s talk about your prosecution of chronically (sic) ill people who are smoking a dried plant for relief of the symptoms those illnesses. Talking about snatching low hanging fruit…picking on sick people…tsk tsk. You were ineffectual representing your constituents against predatory banking practices, leaving them on the street. But neither issue killed people outright.
On the other hand, your efforts to keep prisons and jails filled to the brim along with your support of capital punishment is a cynical way to build your career. I’ll say it again: the body of one condemned by law makes a great mortar to build a politician’s career; you get a second place ribbon for locking up as many as you can. It doesn’t matter what color their skin is.
It’s bad for all people of color every where when they deal with law enforcement - there isn’t much motivation for you to protect the human rights and civil rights of people of color in San Diego County. That’s particularly true for Latinos because when they end up dead due to the actions of law enforcement officers acting under the guise of duty, you do nothing to prosecute their deaths. Maybe you should go walk down North Santa Fe Avenue in Vista or Washington Avenue in El Cajon or Beyer Blvd. in San Ysidro and ask people you’re pretty sure are Latino if they’ve learned their lesson for being an bad constituency, not cooperating with your office and agents to keep law-and-order in the barrios.
Ms. Dumanis, you are an authority on bullying. You know something about running for office in San Diego, that a man never treats a woman disrespectfully and should expect to win a high profile race; we can both point at Peter Navarro as an example. The difference between you and Bob Filner is that when you do it, people end up behind bars or they end up dead. That being said, find a nice, dark place to stick your hypocritical accusations. Stop pretending that your constituents don’t filter out the cynicism and/or hypocrisy from anything that comes out of your mouth or you have attributed to you in print.
