ALTHOUGH WHEN THIS HAS HAPPENED TO OTHERS NURITH GALONSKY HAS BEEN SILENT, I SAY ANYTHING LESS THAN 24/7 POLICE PROTECTION FOR HER AND HER PARENTS WOULD BE A FAILURE ON CHIEF SAUCEDO'S PART

Nurith Galonsky is the consummate by-stander citizen.  She remains silent at Jerry McHale's homophobia and bullying.  Nurith Galonsky's by-stander citizen mentality is what brought this upon her and her family.  I will call a spade a spade.

But this is beyond serious.  The Galonsky family needs now, 24/7 police protection.  Nurith should have a police officer with her at all times until the election is over, and if she wins for several months after the election. Chief Saucedo must send a strong message of zero tolerance for this bigotry and potentially deadly hate.  

The BV has been very consistent about these matters.  The difference is I do not wait until it happens to me to speak out.  And while I demand 24/7 protection for Nurith and her family, I ask people to remember her silence when Jerry spreads his hate and bigotry.  Her own ignorance and bigotry does not justify this.  Even though she will not stand with us, we the good people of Brownsville will stand with her and her family.

I can assure you Nurith will say not a word about Jerry McHale's homophobia or bullying which brings this same unacceptable hate towards those he targets.  But Nurith's narcissism will not stop me from demanding Chief Saucedo give her family and her 24/7 police protection.  

The FBI needs in now.  There can be no mercy for those who did this.  The FBI needs a strong presence in Brownsville now so as to send a very strong message our Jewish brothers and sisters will be protected and those who target them will receive no mercy and the maximum punishment. 

The TV stations need to get this on the AP wire to force an immediate FBI presence.  The Herald has to put the story on the AP wire.

I grew up with so many Jewish friends who parents or grand parents had tattoos from the Nazi's  My cousin's mother in laws parents fled the Russian pogroms and I know the stories.

THIS CANNOT BE TOLERATED IN BROWNSVILLE CHIEF SAUCEDO AND THE GALONSKY'S NEED 24/7 PROTECTION NOW.

Thank you for speaking out for the Jewish community in this time of peril for them and their enforced silence. To long the Hebrew community has been kept silent, unable to stand up for themselves so they are lucky to have a champion Christian to speak for them, to express for them what they should be feeling and what they should do about it. We can only hope that some day the Jewish community will be able to stand on its own two feet and have the courage, courage so aptly demonstrated by you, to speak for themselves. Until then, please continue to speak for them. Having known Jews certainly qualifies you and I am sure they are grateful.

People need to remember this for ever " and their enforced silence." When you are the object of hate you hide. All faiths need to speak in defense of all other faiths and encourage them to come out and educate us. The education I was given has left images in my head no one should have. The stories I heard growing up would horrify people.

But I have hope - Mi tia Angelita a Nicaraguan Catholic was best friends with her daughters' mother in law Tilly. God I loved Tilly so much as we would sit for hours as she told me the stories of the Russian Pogroms.

These two represented this country at its best - both immigrants.

I wish all faiths would come out with pride and spread their unique form of love and compassion. We would all be a better place for it.
