California Mayor Resigns After Saying No Good Person Of Color Has Ever Been Killed By The Police

“ [I don’t] believe there’s ever been a good person of color killed by a police officer.” Those are the words a California mayor sent to a constituent in response to their city’s handling of police brutality.

Temecula mayor, James Stewart, has insisted over and over again that what was sent is not actually what he said. According to the New York Post, Stewart has dyslexia, and he speaks the messages he sends.

He blames the mistake on his failure to proofread.

“Unfortunately, I did not take the time to proofread what was recorded. I absolutely did not say that,” he told a newspaper on Thursday.  “What I said is, ‘and I don’t believe there has ever been a person of color murdered by police,’ on context to Temecula or Riverside County. I absolutely did not say ‘good,’ I have no idea how that popped up.”

After sending, what the Temecula mayor describes to be,  an “egregious error,” he peacefully resigned.

“City of Temecula, I hear you, I agree with you, and I deeply sorry,” Stewart said in a statement. “You have every right to be hurt and offended. My typos and off-the-cuff response to an email on a serious topic added pain at a time where our community, and our country, is suffering.”
