Re: “Urban Shield Task Force Appointee and Gun Dealer Calls Police Critics 'Terrorists'

I teach a class on self-care and community care for faith leaders. The day after Stop Urban Shield presented during public comment, our guest speaker from Buddhist Peace Fellowship led us in the song that they sang during public comment. It was playful, inspiring, and had a positive message. It makes me ill that singing in public, and speaking up about ending violence against innocent people of color and religious minorities would be counted as terrorism. We need more creative and positive community building and less toxic, uninformed lies by appointed decision makers. Using terminology like "terrorist," "slime" and "bad people" from "overseas" behind people's backs and at the end of the process is, as Supervisor Haggerty noted, cowardly. As someone who chose to become a US citizen out of my deeply held commitment to its best values, I believe his actions are also un-American, in contrast with those of Stop Urban Shield. Thank you for bringing this to light.
