DK, love your comments. Clean, precise, thought out. This one wasn't just a home run it was out of the ball park and then a couple of blocks.

I wonder how he determined it was all white faces and all white faces are republican. Somehow he overlooks that many of those white faces are Hispanic and Democrats. You're correct DK, that is divisive and racist. The very thing that he attacks and (cough) despises he does.

Very laughable, how he tries to spin the idea this had nothing to do with the stupidity the Chief hates Blacks ! He is the same guy that screams about the PD being anti-Hispanic although 95% are Hispanic and some of the non-Hispanics are married to Mexican women.

They really damaged themselves this time. Give them enough rope and they WILL hang themselves. The house of cards is collapsing slowly but surely. The people are opening their eyes and ears. The bs is not working anymore. I'm certain this will carryover to the coming elections. They banked on the idea that El Paso would stay home and say nothing. This is the year that the nation has heard enough lies and welcome the truth, the facts.

Well. Interesting. Abeytia moans the fact that "not one council member" found it in their hearts to criticize Chief Allen. Hey, Jaime, what happened to your girl Ordaz? And Byrd's puppet Tolbert? Ordaz was plenty happy to grab the camera and off load her venom toward Allen before it became evident that your group had stepped in it. And Tolbert? He is back peddling on a letter he signed asking for a reprimand, saying his signature was a "mistake." Abeytia's people are falling away like flies. What a shame.

Our elected leaders have aligned themselves with the following.

From The hill:

Make no mistake, the history of BLM shows not only empathy for cop killers, but idolatry and promotion.

At Black Lives Matter protests, activists often wear T-shirts and sweatshirts boldly stating, “Assata Taught Me.” The Assata who taught them is infamous cop killer and former Black Liberation Army leader Assata Shakur, also known as Joanne Chesimard, who shot and killed a New Jersey state trooper back in 1973. Four years later, she was convicted and sentenced to prison. After a short stint in the Clinton Correctional Facility, she escaped and has been living as a free fugitive in Cuba ever since. She’s also on the FBI’s most wanted terrorist list. BLM glorifies Shakur as a hero and uses her writings and materials during training sessions.

OMG! Abeytia continues to just make a total ass out of himself. Obviously he hasn't read the reviews of Obama's speech. It was awful and certainly did not honor the memory of the police officers that were murdered.

Jaime: delete your blog and delete your Twitter account!

Jaime Abeytia is a racist and a total fool. Someone called him out for saying that the council chambers were full of white republicans. So if this was true, you had a bunch of white people supporting a black man. Go figure!

Jaime, give it up. You are a joke. You lie and you threaten like a little kid. Go back to Phoenix. The sheriff and you deserve each other.

jaime still has an active warrant in maricopa county for failure to pay child support. anyone want to give him a ride to phoenix? he would look great in pink chones and he loves bologna sammies.

I think David may be right re it being attempt to try to end EPPD and just have a Sheriff. Such a thing has worked in a few places across our nation, but only a few, so far. Can it, would it save taxpayers money, I think so yes.

Having been a cop 4 years and having sued Allen in the past, I took to heart when a EPPD officer told me "Allen is a cops cop" from that my fear turned to thoughts of the "Thin Blue Line".

At the end of the day my thoughts now are, being hundreds miles away, is Allen is a better cop than I first thought, but Wiles is still even a better one.

Carl, you need to stop smoking the green stuff. Wiles is a politician and as someone else so aptly put it, a media whore.

U. Pavlich is editor for Townhall.com and a Fox News contributor. Fox News gave us Donald Trump. MSNBC gave us Hillary. Police disproportionately kill black people. Black lives matter supporters have said some stupid stuff. We have to find a reasonable middle path. The Dallas shooter had no connection with BLM.

Be afraid, please cite where you got "police disproportionately kill black people." I beg to differ. When a white man is killed, headlines do not read white man killed by police. When a Latino man is killed, headlines do not read, Latino killed by police. Same with Asians, etc. Want to blame someone? Blame media.

BLM was started by extremist. Therefore, Chief Allen was correct. The Dallas shooter was not a part of BLM, but their chanting sure as hell egged him on in his sick little mind.

Arlene. I don't have the time or space here to cite my sources but if you have a curious mind you might look at the "inter web" and let the evidence lead you instead of searching for information that supports you're assumptions. Critical thinking is a skill. But mostly it's just common sense.

The criminal rate of blacks (African Americans) is more than three times higher than the national average, according to the US Bureau of Statistics. So, yes, more blacks are going to be killed than whites, Hispanics, Asians. And the hate spewed by some of the BLM people has definitely contributed to the killing of police in Dallas and Baton Rouge.
I have no idea what the solution is. It has to start with cutting the crime rate among blacks. History tells us that our multiple do-gooder programs have not worked.

Be Afraid - Here's are some facts.

The Washington State University 2014 study into deadly force by law enforcement concluded that police were biased IN FAVOR of black suspects, over white or Hispanic. Additional research published in the Journal of Experimental Criminology in 2014 confirmed these findings.

The Justice Department’s 2015 analysis of the Philadelphia Police Dept found that white police officers were less likely than black or Hispanic officers to shoot unarmed black suspects. Another study this month by a Harvard professor reports that there is zero evidence of racial bias in police shootings.

Last year police fatally shot 987 people in the U.S. 26% of those shot were black; 50% were white.

Police officers face an 18.5 times greater chance of being killed by a black male than an unarmed black male has of being killed by a police officer.

These facts are from Heather Mac Donald, author of the book “The War on Cops”

Lies. Damn lies and statistics. I like the Bureau of Labor statistics. They are the most credible source. And they measure their findings from a variety of metrics that have to be considered before arriving at a conclusion. Let's keep it local. Being a police officer in El Paso, Texas is one of the safest jobs you can get. You have a much greater chance of being killed in the line of duty as a truck driver or a construction worker or a convenience store clerk. Allen stirred up a tempest in a tea cup. It was a dumb move. It was a self inflicted wound.

Be afraid --- So the Dept of Justice lies too. President Obama needs to know about that. Do you like statistics when you agree with them?

Abandon Hope. Yes I do!!! Just like you. One of us squandered four good years getting a degree in political science and statistics from a crappy mid west university. It wasn't you. That's when I first embraced the concept of "liars figure and figures lie". That and time wounds all heals. Allen will have to figure that one out.
