7/27/17 Los Angeles, CA

CONTROVERSY!
One Commissioner Says NO To The Pledge of Allegiance On The Agenda

SEE THE VIDEO BELOW
Last month, at the LA County Sheriff Civilian Oversight Commission meeting, Raul Rodriguez requested that the meeting begin with the Pledge of Allegiance. Chair Robert Bonner said no. Not to be deterred, Raul Rodriguez led the  audience in saying the Pledge of Allegiance during his public comment segment.

Because of citizen action, for the first time, at the July 7/27/17 LA County Sheriff Civilian Oversight Commission agenda, the Pledge of Allegiance was officially listed as the #2 item.


 
Commissioner Rabbi Heather Miller Said NO To The Pledge of Allegiance Being On The Agenda

However, at the beginning of the meeting, one of the commissioners, Rabbi Heather Miller, formally objected to saying the Pledge of Allegiance. She said that because the Pledge of Allegiance references God, it is a violation of church and state. Then she listed the various Los Angeles Commissions that do not say the Pledge of Allegiance. Following her objections, Chair Robert Bonner said that the commission could debate the issue of the Pledge of Allegiance on the agenda, at the next meeting. The topic of the Pledge of Allegiance will be on the August agenda and that meeting will be at 9:30am on 8/24/17.

Then Chair Robert Bonner called upon Commissioner Harris to lead the Pledge of Allegiance.

Because the commission had discussed the topic of the Pledge of Allegiance, the public was eligible to speak out on the issue. Six Trump Supporters spoke out in support of the Pledge of Allegiance on the official agenda at each meeting and two leftists spoke out in opposition to the Pledge of Allegiance being listed on the official agenda.

FROM THE SHERIFF CIVILIAN OVERSIGHT COMMISSION WEBSITE
https://coc.lacounty.gov/About-Us
The Sheriff Civilian Oversight Commission, aimed at  transparency and increasing trust between communities and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, has been established by the Board of Supervisors.
In its Nov. 1, 2016 action, the Board also appointed nine commissioners to serve on the panel and approved hiring an executive director, attorney Brian K. Williams. Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas and Supervisor Hilda L. Solis authored the December 2014 motion that started the process that led to the commission’s creation.
The new commissioners include community and faith leaders, a retired Sheriff’s lieutenant, and attorneys with a broad range of experience—from former prosecutors and public defenders to professors and executives from legal non-profit organizations. They are:
  • Heather Miller, Rabbi, Beth Chayim Chadashim, appointed by the Board of Supervisors
  • Hernán Vera, attorney and former president and CEO of Public Counsel, appointed by Supervisor Solis
  • JP Harris, former Sheriff’s lieutenant, appointed by Supervisor Knabe
