San Diegans Call for Resignation of Police Chief William Lansdowne

      Eugene Davidovich

      La Jolla, CA

Chief Lansdowne has mishandled the Occupy San Diego Protest. He has facilitated the waste of over 2.4 million dollars in 30 days on suppressing free speech at Civic Center Plaza in San Diego.

He has ordered the macing and beating of peaceful protesters and continues to waste over $57,000 per day on intimidating, harassing, and suppressing the peaceful protest rather than protecting and serving the interests of those exercising their freedom of speech and assembly.

We the Citizens of San Diego call on Chief Lansdowne to resign his post as Chief of Police immediately.

      Law enforcement in the USA are to "Protect and Serve." They trampled on the Constitutional rights of the demonstrators.

      A badge and hat do not make an honorable police chief. Bye bye Lansdowne!

      Landsdowne and Sanders do not serve the city well when they cynically attempt to limit free speech through intimidation and fear. This is an authoritarian response.

      The police is supposed to protect & serve, or repress? Why don't they do their job, instead of harassing citizens that are peacefully standing and speaking?

      The appalling lack of creative thinking about how to deal with nonviolent Occupy Movement citizens exercising free speech that has been shown by the chief is wasting money daily. The chief is responsible for this unnecessary financial bloodletting...it is his watch. He should resign for the better of the entire San Diego community and let someone with more understanding of free speech rights and a willingness to facilitate them take his place.
