Sonora Police Dept Welcomes & Ready for Peaceful Demonstrations on Wednesday

Sonora, CA...From the Sonora Police Dept..."The Sonora Police Department is aware of the planned demonstrations for Wednesday in downtown Sonora. We have an incredibly supportive community that shares a respect for one another, so we are anticipating a peaceful event.




We fully support the freedom of speech that is constitutionally protected under the 1st Amendment, and we respect the message being conveyed regarding the tragedy surrounding Mr. George Floyd’s death. The actions by the officers involved in his death are inconsistent with how we train and are in conflict with the level of respect for human dignity expected of law enforcement professionals.

One cannot help but be moved by the disturbing video of the Minneapolis Police Officer kneeling on the neck of Mr. Floyd. However, it would be a disgrace to respond to this appalling incident with hatred and the destruction of our town. The safety of our community is our top priority, and acts of looting, destruction of property, assaults, or other violent crimes will not be tolerated."

It was only a matter of time before the transplant Citidiots brought their city ways to the foothills. They really should run on down to Modesto as they have more stores there.

    Like these two BHHS students organizing in angels camp. They have no idea what they are inviting up here. All it takes is a 1 hour drive by the looters and antifa from Stockton and they will burn this town down.

    So selfish for a bunch of white, middle-class idiots to put their community at risk so they feel better about their “privilege.”

    Shut this crap down!

        So does anyone know the story on the BLM protesters that supposedly are to be bused from Stockton to Angels Camp to demonstrate at 49 and 4. I heard the rumor today.

        Does anyone know any facts. Like date and time?

          The protest is scheduled for 3:00 on Friday. This is EXACTLY why this protest is a bad idea. Do you really expect the two young high-school girls organizing this to be able to keep a group from Stockton under control?

          Stupid. . .

            Thank you, appreciate that!

            So anyone in our county who believes black lives do matter, and that the systemic racism and white nationalism supported by Trump is wrong, can protest with these folks at 49 and 4 this Friday at 3:00.

            This will be interesting.

                I'll be sending Antifa an e-mail advising of the protest.

                People do have the right to peaceful protest. Should you, or any other person choose to violate their right, our sheriff has made it clear it won't be tolerated.

    Isn’t a “good ol country whooping” getting raped and molested by your gun nut uncle behind the shed? I think maybe we should talk with them first!

Most protest being done are still peaceful. But if you just watch the news and don’t communicate with people all of the country you wouldn’t know that. Funny to see a bunch of 2nd amendment nut jobs get shook by a couple millennials with signs.

    What the hell are they protesting? There are no black people in the foothills. Go to the flatlands where you will become the minority.

      They are protesting your racism. How you view black people still matters, even if "there aren't any around here".

      I’m a person of color who lives here. I was born here. I will be downtown holding a “no justice, no peace” sign in one hand and another on my licensed conceal carry. I will be in front of my friends business to protect it.

        I am a person of the color white and I will be sitting at home watching the violence and looting that is happening because of a white cop that killed a black man. This all does not make any sense and the racial divide continues.

        It is so sad that people just don't understand that there are two totally different situations going on here 1. The intended peaceful protest against police violence and 2. the out of hand crazies that take advantage of the opportunity to wreak havoc, destroy property, and basically behave badly who then get to blame it all on the "protesters".
        What happened to George Floyd was wrong. But not all cops are bad; they are just bad people to begin with.

    To serve and to protect. What part of that don’t you understand? Cops are people too, when they can relate with people, it makes for a safer more peaceful community.

I'm shocked - this protest is being spearheaded by an unattractive, out of shape angry white liberal college student.
