Remember Sonny Garcia parading around with a bullhorn outside the Unit 5 School Board meeting? https://blnnews.com/2021/06/17/unit-5-community-organizing-by-the-local-socialists/
If anybody felt intimidated at that meeting is was the people trying to get past his screaming. A reader asked me what he was chanting, honestly I couldn’t understand a word of what he was saying. Sonny might want to work on his technique the next time he wants to abolish capitalism, end ICE doing their job protecting those here legally, or when he wants to end the use of fossil fuels. Obviously he has never researched how fossil fuels are used in almost everything we use daily. Wind energy wouldn’t be possible without fossil fuels and neither would solar. Being a self-proclaimed socialist says all you need to know!
Sonny must also support teachers who teach racism and division while claiming equity and inclusiveness. At least I think that’s why he was there.
Evidently the Unit 5 resource officer read some stories here. He saw a comment on this story and called a superior at the Normal police department: https://blnnews.com/2021/06/17/unit-5-tragic-comment/
Wonder how he knew Sonny was Sonny Garcia? He would have had to read the previous story or maybe he saw Garcia at the School Board meeting. Or maybe he just knew Sonny’s reputation.
It got funnier though. An officer called Sonny and asked him is he knew who posted it. Sonny thought he did and gave them a name. An officer then called the guy and found out it wasn’t him, but that guy just happened to be a reader who relayed the story to me. I of course had to FOIA the report:
The guy didn’t lie, it wasn’t him who made the comment. I bet I wasn’t the only one at the meeting who wished concealed carry was allowed for protection, gun free zones get people killed. The nuts were on the loose that night – especially one with a bullhorn.
