I was speaking to "Boudicca", not of San Jose's Mayor or Police.
I understand that over 2 million Californians voted for Donald Trump. I saw the number on election night, but don't remember how many exactly it was.
There were and are many Californians of course that do not agree with the socialist/communist government in Sacramento, and that permeates every corner of that state (Darrell Issa is now trying to save his butt in San Diego by dissing himself from Trump and coming out in defense of Planned Parenthood, among other things).
Essentially, California is a completely different spiritual, political, social, and ethical, mindset from most of the rest of the country, with the exception of the minority that refuses to go along with it. Yes, there are pockets of excellent people scattered all over the state, but they are completely outnumbered, and most likely in our lifetimes that is not going to change (if ever).
So, if you were put in the place where you were able to speak directly to the San Jose mayor, or had been there when the San Jose police department formed a police line and did not lift a finger to come to the assistance of those being physically beaten while they stood and watched it - what would you say to them?
The judge who allowed the lawsuit is from the California Northern District, and is herself based out of San Jose.
Will the mayor allow the San Jose police to 'protect' her once she starts getting threats I wonder?
