As violence, looting, arson, assault, attacking police officers, the whole gamut, occurred in the streets of Brooklyn Center (how many people lost their businesses, people who had zero to do with the shooting?), and the streets of other cities, the mayor and city council decided to bow to the mob
Brooklyn Center City Manager Curt Boganey was fired on Monday evening, hours after he publicly disagreed with Mayor Mike Elliott’s assertion that the police officer who fatally shot a Black man in the Minneapolis suburb should be immediately fired in response to the incident.
“Effective immediately our city manager has been relieved of his duties, and the deputy city manager will be assuming his duties moving forward,” Elliott wrote on Twitter. “I will continue to work my hardest to ensure good leadership at all levels of our city government.”
Daunte Wright, 20, was fatally shot during a traffic stop. Bodycam footage showed three officers gathered near a stopped car that police said was pulled over for an expired registration. Police attempted to arrest the man, later identified as Wright, for an outstanding warrant. A struggle ensued, followed by the fatal shooting.
Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon said the officer who shot and killed Wright had intended to fire a Taser, not their service weapon. Authorities have not released the name of the female officer involved in the shooting. (maybe not, but everyone seems to know her name)
The Brooklyn Center City Council voted to fire Boganey, a longtime city employee, during an emergency meeting, the Star Tribune reported. At the same meeting, the council voted to give the mayor command authority over the city’s police department.
During a virtual workshop after the meeting, Council Member Kris Lawrence-Anderson said she voted to fire Boganey out of fear of potential reprisals from protestors if she did not, according to the newspaper.
That’s called bowing to the mob. Mob rule. Running our system of justice on Men, not law, meaning on feelings and whim. What did Boganey say that was so bad?
“All employees working for the city of Brooklyn Center are entitled to due process with respect to discipline,” Boganey said. “This employee will receive due process and that’s really all that I can say today.”
When pressed on whether he personally felt the officer should be fired, Boganey again called for due process.
“If I were to answer that question, I’d be contradicting what I said a moment ago — which is to say that all employees are entitled to due process and after that due process, discipline will be determined,” Boganey said. “If I were to say anything else, I would actually be contradicting the idea of due process.”
ZOMG, that’s horrible! We don’t do that in 2021. But, Brooklyn Center might find itself on the wrong side of a lawsuit from Boganey, if he files a wrongful termination suit. He might have an “at will” type contract, but, for a position like City Manager, that would be highly doubtful. And a court will most likely not find calling for due process as a reason for “termination for cause.” And if they fire the idiot officer – I’m of the opinion that if you’re pulling your pistol instead of tazer, even in the heat of the moment, and deploying it and firing it (they feel different in the hand, and really wouldn’t be in the same spot as firearm), you’re too incompetent to be in the job – before due process, as laid out in the police contract, they’ll get another lawsuit.
And all because they’re bowing to a violent mob. This is bowing to the Heckler’s Veto. It’s dangerous, sets a bad precedent, may result in lawsuits, and, doesn’t work, because the Democratic Party voters will still riot, pillage, loot, destroy, assault, and burn.
