Watch Your Language

Hi Mr. Healy,

My name is Sergeant Brian Devlin. I am a police officer assigned to the Muni Division of the San Francisco Police Department. I just finished reading your blog dated February 27, 2010. I am concerned about your statement, "For me, it's simply been the price one has to pay to get rid of an extortionist. But, if the dude wants too much more money, I'm going to have to reload my weapons."

Would you please contact me at 415 554-7156.

Hi Sergeant Devlin,

My use of the word "weapons" in my blog refers to literary, verbal and political weapons. These include: logical argumentation, rousing speeches, sarcasm, mockery, wit, and politically organizing against ideas and policies that I disagree with. Last I heard, such activities were protected by the U.S. Constitution.

I don't own a gun or any other kind of physical weapon. I'm a believer in the principles of non-violence taught by Mahatma Ghandi and will only use violence to protect myself or my loved ones.

Thank you for clearing that up.

  1. Obviously in this post 9/11 world gone mad, some in law enforcement have lost their common sense. It was obvious to me what you intended to convey when I read your blog. Hardly something alarming enough to bother contacting you about. More likely, it was brought to Sergeant Devlin's attention by someone you have taken on in your blogs. They like to play dirty. That's how they extorted the Medallions out of Mr. Welch.
