Rumor has it Glenn Rojas to be new City manager. Is this who we want here?
Protesters: Chino Officials Should Resign
Oct. 22, 2003
In a square, gray room on the second floor of the Broad Center at Pitzer College, Chino residents, Pitzer students and members of the Coalition for Social Justice and Action met with Chino City Manager Glenn Rojas regarding hostility between the Chino Police Department and Chino residents.
These groups have charged the Chino Police Department with brutality, corruption and racial profiling of minorities in the Chino community.
"The chief can't control his officers, the mayor can't control the chief and the city manager can't control the city," said Jesse Diaz, a member of the coalition and a Pitzer alumnus.
Groups Issue Demands to Police
Inland Valley Daily Bulletin
Oct. 11, 2003
In a meeting at Pitzer College, Chino residents and activists presented a formal list of demands to Chino officials regarding charges of brutality and corruption against the city's police department. Jesse Diaz, a 2002 graduate of Pitzer and co-chairman of the Coalition for Social Justice and Action, said, "There's no way that the police are being held accountable there in Chino for their action or inaction." Diaz and the coalition want Chino officials to do more to educate residents about their rights and arrange for internal and external review boards to examine police activity. Jose Calderon, Pitzer professor of sociology and Chicano studies, supported the request by the coalition, Pitzer students, the Mexican American Political Association and Chino residents, that Chino City Manager agree to a hearing by the Los Angeles County Human Relations Committee and create a citizen's police review board.
Rumor has it that some cc members are not at all happy with the selection of the new cm but are going along with it for the sake of solidarity. If wondering's source is correct, and this man is our new cm, then he sounds like a very poor fit for our city.
Shouldn't we residents/taxpayers be allowed to have *some* input into the selection *before* the contract is finalized?
Don't miss out on the discussion!
