Phoenix City Council Rejects Demand For More Oversight Of Police

On Tuesday, the Phoenix City Council rejected a petition calling for the creation of a civilian oversight board for the police department. The citizen petition was in response to the actions by police and protesters after the August rally for President Donald Trump.

Councilman Sal DiCiccio described the petition as an attempt to “persecute the brave men and women of the Phoenix Police Department for their actions surrounding the protests of August 22.”

“We already have extensive civilian oversight of our police department,” said DiCiccio. “This was a witch hunt, pure and simple. The hunt is over. Our officers performed brilliantly that night under tremendous duress, tonight the Council demonstrated our faith in Chief Williams and our incredible men and women in blue.”

“The choice that night was between chaos and control. Cities that have chosen chaos have paid an enormous price in violence and destruction,” continued DiCiccio. “Our officers and their response spared us that, and we need to be thanking them, not attacking them. This is a win for law and order.”

The Council rejected DiCiccio’s alternate motion that would have ended a review by the city manager’s office.

“The Council made a mistake in turning down my substitute motion, this issue isn’t going to go away until the Council stands together behind our police department,” said DiCiccio. “The protestors pushing this initiative don’t want the police to be able to do their job, we have to stand up and put a stop to this.”

  1. Someday we in Tucson could have a Council like this. Call me a hopeless Dreamer.

  2. The Council rejected DiCiccio’s alternate motion that would have ended a review by the city manager’s office.

    What the hell, the liberals got to get their pound of flesh somewhere because they weren’t able to destroy private property and beat their opposition like they always have been able to do before. That makes them pissed. But I am afraid in the end, they will get their way this country will lose more than property. It has already lost its way but actions like this “investigation” simply speed the move to anarchy which is what the liberal left wants. Just ask them.

  3. Finally, a politician who said, “NO!” to a bunch of Soros-backed liberals! The Phoenix Policemen did a very professional job during the Trump rally. Keep up the great work, Phoenix LEO’s!
