This is my plea to our dear citizens of San Francisco. Please take a closer look at this case for outing Ross Mirkirimi our newly elected sheriff. This was not a shock to me that they would try something like this.
After the election i was talking with some friends about the outcome of our new city government officials. I found it VERY peculiar that almost every post EXCEPT our sheriff’s election went to the most conservative candidate. San Francisco has not nor has ever been conservative. Unless there are seriously not any true local residents that go back farther than 6 or 8 years and everyone that used to live in SF has left…. I know it has become much more gentrified in San Francisco within the last 18 years, but to remove the deep seeded neighborhood activism and liberal stances i dont think would happen. At least not this fast.
What makes this city so awesome is the residents abilities to think for themselves. Not to be sheep. Not to believe everything you hear even twice! I hear the chatter in the streets but none of it on the news. Everyone, EVERYONE I have talked to about this case has said it is extremely strange. How is it that the wife doesnt want to press charges, or even testify yet, the case revolves around her. Have you EVER heard of a district attorney filing a restraining order for ANYONE other than themselves?? NEVER! I did not even know it could be done personally.
The far left that is doing a good job of taking over our fair city, has taken what i would regard as yes, Mr. Sheriff, a personal matter, and made it a huge ordeal just to slander Mr. Mirkarimi’s reputation in order to get him out of the only office that has still some power outside city hall.
I do not condone what happened. He did behave badly, but THIS… THIS WHAT THEY HAVE DONE is more abusive to anyone’s civil rights and personal rights than him brusing his wife on the arm. He did not hit her, he did not slap her, he did not lock her in their home, he didnt take away her communication devices. He grabbed her too hard while in an argument. This is not right, but it not anywhere close to bad enough to have to go to jail for or even worse… resign.
Hold on tight for all of us on the right Mr. Mirkarimi!! You represented me for years in 94117, please dont let them take the best city government official we’ve got taken away! Dont let them prop 8 you!! We all support you!
DO NOT RESIGN!!!
