A Racial Inequities and Institutional Racism report actually makes it look like former Austin Police Department (APD) Chief Brian Manley sold the department out before he left. This report makes it look like Manley went along with the Critical Race Training (CRT) scheme being promoted by radical left-wing activists and government officials for the APD.
Manley was already receiving APD retirement, so he was getting an additional salary from the City of Austin as Chief. It is highly likely that he got paid for this. Joyce James was paid to evaluate that report which stated that they could find no evidence of racial stuff in the APD, the attorney from San Antonio wrote.
The report referenced from San Antonio was the Tatum Report. The lady they hired to do an investigation based on the former APD Assistant Chief Jason Dusterhoft incident. The Joyce James Consulting report outlines why there is a need for the entire department to go through her training. In short, they found no racial issues, however the entire department needs CRT training, and Manley’s statements suggests that he gave her the go ahead.
Manley covered up racism for those around him at the top but threw the entire APD under the bus, which showed no evidence of systemic racism.
Time and time again, the officers have been investigated and nothing is found, except at the top.
Text messages were discovered that implicated Manley being complicit in the alleged racial things Dusterhoft was saying. It was happening, sure, but it was at the top.
This hasn’t been publicized, because it is likely that more officers would leave, which is exactly what the radical activist mob City of Austin’s goal is and more like adding more fuel to the fire in ending law enforcement altogether in Austin.
Manley says that they are racially profiling people. At this point, does it matter? They can’t cover calls as it is, and yet, the APD is blamed for the damage done by the radical activist mob.
Manley claimed that their aim was to get racial disparities to ZERO, so that means that either Whites and Asians need to commit MANY more crimes OR many Blacks and Hispanics will get away with more crimes without punishment. Which makes sense as to why they are dismissing so many charges. Over 5k criminal cases have been dismissed this year alone, and they won’t even go on anyone’s record or crime data reports, thanks to the DSA-elected Travis County District Attorney Jose Garza (letting the Sixth St shooters off, corruption leading to a resignation in his office, and now the denial of @johnnyk20001‘s FOIA).
Court records show that an Assistant District Attorney with the Travis County DA's office has resigned. They state reason as being d current leadership in the DA's office has put them in a position that compromises their ethics, morals, and standards of professional conduct.

The Travis County DA's office is going to the Attorney General's office to fight my records request. Pic 1 is my request. Pic 2 is their response.🤦♂️ pic.twitter.com/myoKIyvN5A

Beyond all this, it is time for Austin citizens to start paying attention to who Farah Muscadin is and what role she is playing in influencing how our local law enforcement functions. The paid-to-play corruption of the local news media seems to be overlooking what is happening inside of the APD. A recent poll found that only 2% of Austin has ever heard of Farah Muscadin and the Office of Police Oversight (OPO).
That’s where we come in.
Presently, interesting conversations occur at the APD Chief Joseph Chacon’s meetings. Press releases are coming in slow, because he has to make sure the Black Lives Matter (BLM)/pro-criminal group of the City of Austin’s OPO (Director Farah Muscadin), the “reimagining public safety” task force, the City of Austin’s Equity Office, and Socialist Travis County District Attorney (DA-Jose Garza) approve that it doesn’t contain too much bias. Who doesn’t love when their official, government news gets filtered by radicals?
They still have 2 APD PIO's, but 3 civilians. It does appear that they are screening regular press releases, especially on homicides. Something has definitely changed. Last year homicide reports were #d and this year they are not.
I bet OPO has some input now. pic.twitter.com/m1il4FQR78

Corrupt Mayor Steve Adler, corrupt City Council, Corrupt City Manager Spencer Cronk, corrupt County DA Jose Garza, corrupt judges (e.g., former Democrat darling Travis County Commissioners court judge Sarah Eckhardt, from 2014 to 2020, now Texas Senator) corrupt Equity Office & many other miscellaneous woke projects aka bloated, bulging, and corrupt big government. Chacon couldn’t win even if he tried.
The Chief spot falls under the City Manager, Spencer Cronk. The Chief must retire from the department, and then they are hired by the the City of Austin.
The City Manager enforces the law. Mayor Adler is just a glorified council member.
That’s what the strong mayor vote was aimed at, and failed to change as Austin voters strongly opposed Prop F. That is also why the small percentage of very vocal paid-to-play DSA activists are targeting Cronk’s home/neighborhood. The desperation of these pathetic acts speak for themselves. Austin is better than this.
The motion seeks to have an evidentiary hearing on this and if successful, then it seeks to have the indictment dismissed.
Obviously that's unlikely but there had been a lot of rumors that Fugitt had not been allowed to testify fully.
Now there's an actual pleading /2

So, why will officers even respond anymore? “It’s a Black male that is robbing that store! Oh well, leave him be.” This is what they are training the officers to do. The situation at APD is fragile right now. They have lost over 220 officers in the past year. Seems like this could be a class action lawsuit.
When faced with the data, there is just no way around the fact that 60% of the crime in Austin is committed by a race that makes up 6-8% of the population.
They don’t do drug highway interdiction in Austin. You know why? Because most would be Hispanic, because they come up from the Texas-Mexico border. Guns and money go south, drugs and human trafficking go north on IH-35 every single day. You can easily spot them. It is not about stopping crime anymore, and the safety of Austin has deteriorated.
Cronk reinstated over $442M, because of Governor Greg Abbott. HB 1900 allows Texas to punish large cities that defund their police department by capping property taxes in those cities, deducting sales tax revenue or stripping annexation powers. “The goal is to keep the independence of some of these areas and to keep the momentum of our reimagining public safety work,” said Cronk. “But we know we have to comply with HB 1900, and we will.”
“Our top scientists, our police and victim advocates have all said that having an independent forensics lab is the right thing to do, so we’re going to keep fighting for that,” said Greg Casar, Austin City Council member representing District 4. What is the story behind this red herring? Casar is fussing about APD getting refunded. Casar would never fight for an independent audit. The truth is that anytime Casar ramps up his activism activities, it goes against the Best Interests of the City of Austin and its Citizens. Perhaps they can later shut it down and keep the funds after the DA announces in a press release that there is no need for the lab, just like they have and will continue to do with the ghost train.
CM Casar you know the forensic lab statement is a red herring. The lab is run by Dr. Kadavy, a well respected expert. It will continue to be a top lab. Your failed policies are negatively impacting real people's lives. The rise in crime in your district should be evidence enough.

Last summer, following radical activist-led protests of thousands of people who did not live or work in Austin, sparked by the death of an individual not of the city of Austin, nor the state of Texas, nor related to the APD, Austin City Council agreed to defund APD by $150M (the largest amount as compared to number of officers to city population in the nation) to other areas like Austin-Travis County EMS, a family violence shelter with location that was prematurely announced rather than kept secret to protect said individuals of violence (and against the community’s input, knowledge of, and rejected by a local judge), permanent supportive housing that the local community rejected and workforce development aka a racketeering scheme with Jose Garza’s and Greg Casar’s Worker Defense Project.
The plan was also to eventually move the 911 center and forensics lab out of APD’s control and budget. But the 911 center and forensics lab won’t be moving out of APD anytime soon because of the state’s new law that goes into effect in September.
City Council will only use this to fund their corrupt projects, though. How will the $442M get reallocated once the City Council gets back in session? July 29th is the first in-person Austin City Council meeting.
We will be back in person tomorrow for the budget presentation. Our first in-person council meeting is July 29. https://t.co/7oplarkor7

Wrong! I stated the fact that disparities exist because they do, in policing as well as most other city services. I did not place the blame for these disparities on APD officers, but instead did just the opposite by saying we needed more data to understand the causes of these https://t.co/al1mQVzW8Y

In January APD was looking to hire someone to conduct research, planning, and crime analysis. The equity office was asked to assist. Pic 2 shows their recommendations for the hiring process. Un f'ing believable. pic.twitter.com/Ig1itv3Owy

Chief Chacon's message to APD concerning critical race theory classes. He mentions that community members will be in attendance. They must be the people we are paying $25 an hour for them to attend. 🤦♂️https://t.co/F5EnZ2CHQ5
