FOX NEWS — Santa Monica Police Chief Cynthia Renaud is facing calls to resign after local television footage showed officers standing idly by as looters ransacked more than 80 stores in the city’s downtown area.

A petition posted to Change.org to remove the California chief had received more than 8,000 signatures by 9 a.m. Tuesday morning, according to the Santa Monica Lookout. Its creator, Oliver Greene, said officers lacked the “strong leadership and overarching strategy to protect themselves, our city, and its citizens.”

What began as a peaceful protest in Santa Monica on Sunday over the death of George Floyd descended into violence and some people began looting businesses, including banks, chain stores and smaller mom-and-pop shops and restaurants.

Live broadcasts showed officers watching as people ransacked stores and emptied shelves. Though more than 400 people have been taken into custody on charges like looting, violating curfew, burglary and assault, those arrests did not come until after the businesses were destroyed.

Renaud has said 95 percent of those arrested for looting did not live in Santa Monica, WABC reported. […]

  1. @ eah… Good Lord, Do you live on planet that has google? Pick a major city. ANY major city, Then google the police chief. Let me help you, (Atlanta Police Chief) . And by the way same results, Lady Police chief who let the rioters riot.

    Rick Cole looks like a survivor trying to get in his last 5 years to qualify for full retirement. Good for him!

    • I live on a planet that has other SEs besides Google (which I never use) — also on my planet there’s something called reply functionality: we can click on ‘Reply’ to answer someone — cool, huh?

      Actually, I went to the Wikipedia page “List of United States cities by population”, and the police commissioner of NYC, the city at the top of the list, is named Dermot Shea; before him James O’Neill; ” Bill Bratton, all appointed by de Blasio — in fact, it’s white males all the way back to 1990.

      In LA, it’s white males going back 20 years.

      Etc — a very brief survey/small selection from the 100 largest cities shows a LOT of men and few women.

      For the record, NOBODY reading this blog would have had the B@lls to challenge the PC mob, (including you)

      Sure dude — you know, you should change your moniker to Jim Cuck: it’s one letter shorter and descriptive at the same time.

      Good for him!

      Oh yeah — give taxpayers a maximum screwing, “what’s not to like?”

      “LOL” — another abject moron — holy shit.
