|Doyle & Capoccia: UUT first, Monastery next?|
The following series of City of Sierra Madre's Facebook screenshots shows how these comments first appeared. This is what was originally attached to Chief Giannone's announcement regarding those new SMPD uniform embellishments we posted about on this blog yesterday. You can link to that by clicking here.
The next screenshot shows how these comments appear now. Jennifer Kloss's remark questioning SMPD expenditures for those new SMPD badges and patches has now been completely scrubbed from the site. George Orwell style, and with no explanation.
A very disturbing development. Apparently City Hall hopes to consign those residents who do not agree with their opinions to a kind of second class status. With only those closely adhering to the policies of the dominant big spending political faction in town being allowed complete access to the city's taxpayer funded Facebook page.
It is always alarming when you witness government trying to silence those who dare speak out against what it is they want. Which, in this case, has everything to do with money. The city is funding fat personal pensions on the public tax dime, and do not want to hear from anyone who might challenge that special one-sided relationship.
Things are getting ugly downtown.
