Exactly. Was former Chief, now commissioner Leon supporting the backlash against Allen? Was Vince Perez in the group too?

news watcher

Escobar, as usual, made a fool of herself. Anything, I mean anything to put herself out there in front of the camera.

I'm here for the Escobar show

So what does she have against you being a puppet. From the looks of the names on that letter, she is quite the pupeteer.


What's the beef this is what comes from the Democratic progressive left. It's standard and typical. These people do not give a shit about Black people much less about the LGBT community this is nothing more than typical pandering before the media. Yep Vero and the other progressive Democrats in El Paso are pissed off that some one was honest and told the truth about BLM being nothing more than a hate group.This really shows what the progressive Democrats represent and stand for. It's all "Bull Shit",they got mad and can understand why the majority do not take them seriously. Ali now they will label you as racist and a bigot because you question their good intent. Welcome to the club!

Proud Bowie Bear-Class of 1962

This is so very sad. I am not even upset about the comments either way, but that letter that Escobar and company wrote is extremely disrespectful to all persons of color and head of our law enforcement. Outlining El Paso's racial past and explaining our history of fighting bigotry and hate to a man who lived it is a new low. What's even more offensive is that with the exception of Jose Rodriguez, who is a disappointment in all other categories anyway, none of those kids ever lived through the social unrest of the 50's and 60's and to lecture one of the first African Americans on the police force makes me sick.

Recall those assholes asap.

DC insider

Escobar's tweets make it crystal clear....this is all about her. She didn't respond to defend her position, she hurled personal insults to a blogger. What a spoiled spoiled brat. She is so tough because she puts her name on rocks? She is pathetic. Veronica, please don't run for Congress like you are planning because here in DC, we are real fighters and we don't run from bloggers or block people from twitter. We take the hits and keep moving. Stay home with your groupies, drinking beer and talking about how brave you are....

All Lives Matter

Im gonna donate 5k to whomever runs against Escobar, Oroarke, and Byrd the next time they run. I don't give a shit who runs against them. Larry Medina, Norma, Davidk, you, whomever. Chief Allen gave his opinion and is being crucified by the Times and these idiots because he is not politically correct. If BLM is allowing these hate chants like "pigs in a blanket need to fry" and all the other remarks Allan spoke of and they are not doing anything about it then they "are" a hate group. Get the recalls going if possible. Somebody needs to start a new Newspaper in this town that's for damn sure.

Republican Westsider

Hey who was the old man standing next to Moody, is that Lina Ortega? Already screwing things up and she has not even been elected yet.

Susie is a joke

I'm still laughing that Susie Byrd signed the letter....I'm sorry who is she?

Go Chief Allen!

Poor Vero,
She got outclassed by Leeser and came out looking like a drama queen.
Keep calling her out on her hypocrisy.
She should stop making ridiculous statements on TV. She comes across as uneducated and immature. Plus the camera is not her friend. She desperately needs a nose job.

David Sanchez

As one Facebook poster stated, "attention seeking media whores". Fits perfect. I agree that Susie Byrd is a joke. Veronica and she need to go back to their government cheese and leave the good citizens of El Paso alone. I was going to vote for Wiles and have changed my mind.

Deep Foot

David, many have forgotten, it wasn't just the cheese. It was also the guided tour of all the cat houses they gave to the writer from Playboy magazine. What was embarrassing is not only the Juarez part two atomosphere, but that two females knew the prices and menu of each house. What a showcase that was to the world, two officials traveling the sex circuit.

They both need a dentist to remove the feet and volunteer for the Italian transplant in 2017. Only they could be the first for a smaller mouth, to keep the mouth out and shock treatment for their visions of grandeur.

I wouldn't be surprise if the perv didn't script the stupidity. From what I hear he is still considered a valuable advisor to the that group of malcontents. If it wasn't for. a "no class" classification, they wouldn't have any class.

Former Democrat

Yep for Vero it does speak volumes not about Chief Allen but Vero and her 12 Apostles standing in public support of a hate group. We think they should all resign from office Vero and her 12 Apostles.

Jerry K

Women in office can't seem to resist the drama queen thing-y.

David Sanchez

Jerry K, you seem to forget that several "men" were there. These are not men or women. They are leeches.

Susie is a joke

David K did a nice write up on how the terrible 13 really fucked this one up. Have any of the other elected that didn't sign spoken out?

Chief Allan Supporter

Susie is a joke. Did you notice that the Times posted a letter by one of Susie's kids. I guess Bob Moore figured no one could figure out the last name. I never knew Susie was Hispanic ?


David Sanchez

Good catch, "Chief Allen Supporter"! The name was run together, so I did not pay close attention. Just figured it was another idiot. How said she is using her children to convince people that she has support.

What a shame

White privilege tells a young white woman she can give a lesson on racism to a black man.


Now you know the reason for the pressers and faux outrage. Never let a juicy tragedy go to waste because... Prelude to a fat raise.
