This is the same Public Works Employee who admitted to San Diego Police Department investigators that: he in fact removed political signs from private property at the Auto Zone....outside the City Limits of Imperial Beach!
And the Sherriff's Department see's fit to give him an award?
While removing those signs is probably a violation of Federal Voters Rights Legislation, State Law and even the City's own Municipal Code that exempts political and religious signs, Tony Serrano was given an award by the Sheriff's Department ! Do you need to ask any other questions about Constitutional Government, Due Process or Democracy?
The case in San Diego City Limits has been tranferred and married to the case under investigation by the Imperial Beach Sheriff's Department, which has obviously decided what action they might take against Tony Serrano and his immediate supervisors; Public Works Director Hank Levine and City Manager Gary Brown.
We are happy for his work against real grafitti. Too bad he doesn't know the difference between political free speech and Grafitti? Too bad an Employee of the City of Imperial Beach doesn't know where the City Limits of San Diego start and where the City Limits of Imperial Beach end? Too bad the Sheriff's Department does not see fit to prosecute him for his theft of political signs and the impact it had on influencing the outcome of recent local elections?
