"The Mayor of South Tucson is saying that the Police Department there doesn't know how to enforce the law."
Keep in mind the City of South Tucson is a one-square mile municipality.
A South Tucson police officer, when asked why the ordinance was not being enforced, claimed he didn't even know there was such an ordinance.
That would lead one to believe South Tucson PD is not required to know local ordinances
and / or
This particular officer was never told to enforce the ordinance.
"He'd prefer the public to just go away and let his people carry on doing what they've been doing, even if what they've been doing is illegal, unethical, and inappropriate on so many levels."
The public will not just go away.
The public is just getting started.
Are all of these officials the buck-passing champions of the world, or what? Taxpayer dollars are paying these people? “Taxpayer” in this context, of course, excludes Tucson Greyhound Park, which is still on the receiving end of tax breaks.
Noticeably absent at this juncture in this ongoing disgrace are the voices of:
1) John Munger, attorney for Tucson Greyhound Park, (still not returning phone calls), who actually thinks he should be governor;
2) Tom Taylor, TGP manager. He’s the one who said, when the South Tucson ballot initiative was proposed, “ . . . it won’t affect us at all. It just won’t. We will just do what we need to do.”
3) And here’s to you, Dr. Robinson. Silent now? Busy making money shooting up female greyhounds with steroids? How pathetic.
Bravo to Susan Via, Dr. Forrer. And bravo to Tim Vanderpool.
Very good point.
The employment documents / employment contracts / retainers - - whatever they're called - - should be looked into for each of the persons mentioned.
A lot of names mentioned in the article, a lot of hedging.
The only ones who REALLY can't do anything about this are the Greyhounds.
Defiant veterinarian and track manager plus apathetic city equals another losing combination for the greyhounds.
Way past the time for the cruelty to end.
Defiant veterinarian and track manager plus buck-passing by the city - - another losing combination for the greyhounds.
Way past the time for all the cruelty to end.
