WATCH: Dallas Commissioner Shoots Down Police Tribute Day
Apparently Dallas Commissioner John Wiley has a problem with paying tribute to the police.
No, not the band. That would have made more sense, even though "Synchronicity II" is still the mad notes. Wiley had a problem with paying tribute to the Dallas police. As in fallen Dallas police. As in the fallen Dallas police officers who were assassinated one year ago, to be exact (see WAR: 5 Cops Slain at Dallas #BlackLivesMatter Protest and Dallas Police Chief: ‘A coward will not change our democracy…’).
As the one year anniversary of the ambush approached, the Dallas County Commission voted on a resolution to make July 7 a day to honor all fallen law enforcement officers. All commissioners voted “yes,” except for Commissioner John Wiley Price.
“Abstained,” yelled Price after the vote. “It’s interesting in this country how you again continue to try to frame a narrative with regards to other people who have lost their lives at the hands of law enforcement. Any loss of life is bad.”
It was hard to follow, but yes, that garbled sentence was JWP's attempt at "reasoning." Naturally, this network tried to follow up with his office for more details. Maybe even a translation.
CBS11 called Price to get his side of a story, but one of his staffers hung up are we requested an interview.
If I were that staffer, I would have hung up because I was busy checking CareerBuilder.com for any job openings. Or maybe this lad was unavailable for comment because he was simply overcome with embarrassment from working for such a pompous wind bag.
Interestingly enough, notice how John Wiley felt the need to bring up how "any loss of life is bad." Because why honor these fallen heroes when, like, people die every day and stuff. Like the people who died from secondhand embarrassment when such verbal nonsense erupted from Wiley's face hole. Maybe he would have preferred Dallas have an official day to honor those suffering explosive verbal diarrhea instead. #Awareness
Regardless, John Wiley just painted himself a bitter, trifling heap of wrong. But come to think of it, I know few people who share Wiley's disdain for all things police tributes. See Dartmouth College: BlackLivesMatter Destroys and Replaces Police Memorial Display
