Acumen: keenness and depth of perception, discernment, or discrimination especially in practical matters.
Acumen is a interesting word as defined in the dictionary. It talks about practical matters. Matters that would be clear to the normal person. Matters that require thought... or some sort of superior mind. Or upbringing, or the clothes you wear. Or where you live...
Acumen was mentioned last night in the City Council meeting relating to the SRPD Labor Issues. The Chief of Staff of the Hospital and the Police Chief both decided that unlike them, I do not have the ...mental acumen.. to consider the weighty matters of the police negotiations. That they will talk about it in private with the Governor.
Think about that, Citizens of Santa Ramona. The privileged class of the Northside shows their true colors. When accountability is mentioned for the Police, it's "You don't understand". Sure I do. It's just a coverup [sic] of police malfeasance.
Let me point out one such instance.
Sgt Rameriez of the SRPD was suspended for, quote from the SRPD itself:
"Officially informing you that I have placed Sargent Roman Ramirez on Suspension without pay for until further notice. I am recommending a period of no less then 1 month, during which time he will obtain counselling. "[sic]
This was April 13, 2019.
We all know who the Sargent is married to.
Why is it not a surprise that Sgt Rameriez was in full uniform, on duty and answering orders given by the Chief of Police in last nights abomination of a meeting?
Further to quote from the SRPD own document:
"I have also passed your complaint to our Internal Affairs Department for their records. "
I'm sure you can guess which records that was. The circular file.
Last night's meeting was a attempt at a show of force by SRPD labor. Was action taking for the comments made by the SRPD Labor members in the audience? Of course not. Investigator, judge, jury. That's Chief Jade-Rameriez's position. The public needs to have decorum in these meetings, but if you are a member of the SRPD, you can do what you want. Sit? Nah, I'm going to hover. Speak out? Sure, cuz SRPD members aren't subject to you know, the rules and laws the rest of us are.
Chief Jade-Rameriez and her minions have one mission and one mission alone and that is to hide their activities.
And it's hilarious some of the statements made in the meeting. "No Police operates with Civilian Oversight".
City of Los Angles: Under the City Charter, the Board of Police Commissioners is the head of the Police Department
San Diego Community Review Board on Police Practices: reviews and evaluates serious complaints brought by the public against officers of the Police Department of the City of San Diego.
Police accountability will continue to be a issue as long as the SRPD resists. As Mayor, I will continue to push for it. By the people's definition... not the Northside upper class definition....
