Sharrif won’t respond to 911 calls against Black Lives Matter
A Nevada county library’s anticipated proclamation regarding calls against Black Lives Matter pressed the local sheriff to issue an attention grabbing warning that his office would never react to the 911 calls against black lives matter demos thus made.
“We support #BlackLivesMatter,” the Douglas County Public Library stated in the proposed short statement issued a week earlier concluding a meeting agenda. “We resolutely assert and believe that all forms of racism, hatred, inequality, and injustice don’t belong in our society.”
Sheriff Dan Coverley, , stated in a letter sent to the library board of trustees that declared the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis police keeping “tragic and preventable” and argued that “data simply does not support claims that law enforcement is systemically racist or structurally biased.”
The letter came on the media on Monday from the official website of sheriff office, and made it clear that, “Due to your support of Black Lives Matter and the obvious lack of support or trust with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, please do not feel the need to call 911 for help.”
“I wish you good luck with disturbances and lewd behavior, since those are just some of the recent calls my office has assisted you with in the past,” the letter said.
Library director Amy Dodson confirmed that the planned statement “simply was meant to state our inclusivity at the library, that we are open and welcoming to everyone and we treat everyone equally.”
Coverley and Dodson had a meeting on Tuesday and issued a joint declaration on social media where the director of the library told that they “had a very candid conversation.”
“We agreed that we both support the people of Douglas County and this may have been an unfortunate circumstance of misunderstanding,” Dodson said. “The library respects and supports the work of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and appreciates everything they do to keep our community safe.”
The sheriff, as he himself saif, is “passionate about and proud” of the work by his agency in the society. He was quite clear about his refusal to calls against black lives matter movement.
“This has been a difficult time to be a law enforcement professional and can be disheartening when we perceive that our office may be under attack,” Coverley said. “My response was rooted in my belief that these issues need to be openly discussed in a way that values diversity and law enforcement.”
The meeting regarding black lives matter and sharrif’s stance on calls against black lives matter was rescheduled for more deliberations in this regard.
