His excuse for the city weaseling out of its promised contribution to the Christopher Dorner reward fund just doesn’t fly

According to the Press-Enterprise, Riverside Mayor William Bailey on Wednesday said the city could not pay the reward because Christopher Dorner was dead rather than captured and convicted as called for in the resolution passed by the city council.

Mayor Bailey said: The reward “called for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator, and that didn’t occur. We were bound by government code to obey the language of our resolution and not give a gift of public funds.”

What a supreme crock of shit! Bound by the government code my ass! That is nothing more than an excuse – and a phony one at that – to weasel out of contributing the $100,000 the city promised to donate to the reward fund.

Riverside Police Officer Michael Crain was one of the victims killed by Dorner. By rescinding the $100,000 pledge, the Mayor, the city council, and even the City of Riverside itself, have dishonored a fallen hero. That’s some kind of memorial to Officer Crain. Shame, shame, shame!

Gee, a politician that uses tortured logic and flatout lies. Who would have thought that could ever happen?
