After five Dallas police officers were murdered in cold blood, a city council member decides to add salt to the wound. Her inflammatory comment did not get unnoticed.
KCRA reported: The Nevada City councilmember who published controversial comments on Facebook about law enforcement, causing city police to ask for her resignation, has issued an apology statement Saturday.
“I would like to extend an apology first and foremost to the Nevada City Police Department, whom I have the utmost respect for,” Reinette Senum said in her statement. “In no way did I mean to offend our highly regarded officers with my comments on Facebook.”
Senum, the owner of Los Mineros restaurant in Nevada City, made comments about police officers in light of Thursday’s Dallas shooting, in which five officers were killed.
Tim Ewing, president of the Nevada City Police Officers Association, said a Change.org petition was circulated, asking for her resignation.
