Dis­turbed by ‘racial, anti-po­lice rant’ in Baca let­ter

Ripon Bulletin - - Local / State -

Ed­i­tor, Man­teca Bul­letin,

I re­ally believe Larry Baca en­joys be­ing ink slapped in the pa­per as if it makes him feel im­por­tant. What he wrote in the Man­teca Bul­letin (“The mo­ronic idea to arm teach­ers”) was an in­sult to ev­ery of­fi­cer sug­gest­ing that if a black teacher had a gun dur­ing a school shoot­ing and the SWAT team ar­rived, how many bul­let holes would be found his body.

When Amy Sul­li­van ex­pressed her dis­plea­sure of Baca’s let­ter in the pa­per, he came back in­sult­ing her as “ill in­formed” and liv­ing in an “overly per­fumed bub­ble”. Baca then wrote in his re­sponse, “No­tice I didn’t say where the bul­lets came from” as if to sug­gest Amy was wrong to point out Baca’s anti-po­lice racial rhetoric. How­ever, Baca then im­me­di­ately points out a statis­tic to sug­gest “black males be­tween the ages of 15 and 34 were nice times more likely to be killed by po­lice than any other de­mo­graphic.”

As an of­fi­cer of 30 years, I am also dis­turbed by Baca’s racial; anti-po­lice rant and came up with some statis­tics of my own from the Daily Wire.

▶1. Cops kill nearly twice as many whites than blacks.

▶2. More whites and His­pan­ics die from po­lice homi­cides than blacks.

▶3. Black and His­panic po­lice of­fi­cers are more likely to fire a gun at blacks than white of­fi­cers.

▶4. Blacks are more likely to kill an of­fi­cer than to be killed by an of­fi­cer.

▶5. 93 per­cent of black homi­cides in­volved killing by other blacks.

Also in a study by Dr. Richard R. John­son from the Univer­sity of Toledo, an av­er­age of 4,472 black men were killed by other black men an­nu­ally while an av­er­age of 112 black men die an­nu­ally for ei­ther jus­ti­fied/non-jus­ti­fied po­lice-in­volved killings.

Baca, you owe ev­ery of­fi­cer in this city and be­yond an apol­ogy for your in­sen­si­tive, racial rhetoric.

Then Baca had to throw in the KKK for what­ever rea­son with more racial rhetoric to­tally ex­clud­ing the fact that the KKK orig­i­nated through the Demo­crat party and was a branch of the Demo­crat party, re­fus­ing to grant rights to blacks.

Last, Baca must be called out for an­other flat out lie claim­ing I am in fa­vor of arm­ing 700,000 to 1.4 mil­lion teach­ers. What a lie. For the record, here is the di­rect quote of what I wrote in the Man­teca Bul­letin on March 5, 2018, “Al­low those teach­ers who want to be trained to carry a firearm to be able to do so.”

So Baca had to be cor­rected again for mis­lead­ing what was writ­ten as well as his usual in­sults to those he dis­agrees with. How­ever, I am sure Baca is thrilled to have the at­ten­tion even though he is ink slapped yet again. Frank Aquila Man­teca
