This email was forward to us from several sources. We can’t vouch for its authenticity but it seems to be from the infamous Suzie Owsley.
Chief Mills has asked me to relay this important information to the city NW groups regarding Senate Bill AB 718 which would prohibit local jurisdictions from enacting ordinances, which would prohibit local jurisdictions from enacting ordinances, such as prohibiting the sleeping in lawfully parked motor vehicles. He is requesting your assistance in speaking out against this bill.
Thank you, Suzie/Neighborhood Watch
Soon to be fired (…ahem position cut) PSO Suzie Owsley has forwarded this information, which she attributes to Chief Mills. We were forwarded this email, but our jaws didn’t drop. Why? Because many people in the Victorian Seaport of Eureka view homelessness as a crime. That isn’t a shock, as most of Mills ordinances and marching orders have been directly targeted at this large, and vulnerable group. Homelessness is not a crime. The fact is, as Chief Mills will sometimes state, being homeless makes one more likely to be a victim of crime. The email is another way of drumming up right wing support in the community for Mills, but takes an “un-amended” bill which would have never passed as being on the table. That’s misleading, but not a surprise if it was actually from the “king of spin” Andy the actual bill before the legislature.
As a side note, maybe Mills is onto something. Suzie Owsley, the pride of Murl Harpham and the “Old Guard” at EPD, sued the City when Chief Neilsen tried to get rid of her for incompetence. Dave Tyson oversaw her payout, after firing Chief Neilsen “without cause”. Maybe the only way to get rid of Owsley is to fire the whole lot of PSO’s. Not good for the city, but understandable given Owsley’s horrible presence within the department. In fact, two “volunteers” at EPD, who were brought in by Suzie, ended up being arrested and convicted of charges related to child molestation (we will only use their first names, Dustin and Cole, to protect the victims from knowing that EPD had child molesters working in the station). But if that’s the case, Andy should be just a little worried. Suzie and her friend Dee Dee Wilson can start another blog about this Chief, pull strings with their right wing friends, and things can go back to the good old days when Murl was Chief…yet again!
