Endorsement interviews: Paul Miyamoto

|
(4)

Paul Miyamoto is a captain in the Sheriff's Office and is running for the top job. He told us that at a time when significant change is coming -- from the retirement of longtime Sheriff Mike Hennessey to state realignment on prison policy -- it's important to have "someone from within, someone who's been doing the job." He vowed (as did all the candidates) to continue Hennessey's progressive policies, but was a little fuzzy in some areas. He said, for example, that he's against privatizing jail health services -- but would be willing to examine the issue if there were a viable alternative. Audio and video after the jump.

Campers,

Just listened to this interview and I was struck that Steven T. Jones cherry-picked and then distorted (he lied, OK?) ... so, anyway, Jones intimated that MIyamoto was in favor of privatizing the medical services at the CCSF jails and that's bullshit. Miyamoto clearly told him, "If that were to happen there would be a lowering of services.". The good Captain (best line ... "I was late to my first shift as a deputy and the deputy I relieved was very angry and so I married her.") ...

This is a totally unfair piece.

Steve, did you think we wouldn't listen to it?

Second point ... you've given all candidates at least an hour.

You gave Miyamoto 30 minutes in which he totally kicked ass.

Why less time for Miyamoto?

Could it be because he's an Asian-American?'

Folks, listen to the tape. It rocks. Rather, Miyamoto rocks. The Guardian staff is unfair and ...

You be the judge.

Again, Tim ... why'd Miyamoto get half the time?

Go Giants!

Is it cause Bruce showed his ass in the last question?

FYI, Bruce asked: "What kind of a Mayor do you think that Mike Henneseey would have made?"

And, Redmond cut off the interview?

Afraid Bruce would further embarrass the brand?

That sucks.

Yes, you did cherry-pick. He clearly stated he is against privatizing at CCSF jails. What makes you think otherwise?

B3,

It ain't like you to erase test at all. You becoming Rosemary Woods? I had a decent exchange going with Kamin and Brooks regarding Ross' abuse of his staff and it just like suddenly went away. I can't find that the exchange ever happened.

Bruce, surely you've heard the rumors of Ross' abusive behavior toward the two paid staffers he's had over the past 8 years? Don't know how many people have filled those positions but Ross has certainly done the same thing to all of them.

In the posts that were lost in your system I challenged Kamin and Brooks to do one thing. That being, get one person who has been a paid staffer for Mirkarimi over the last 8 years to come out and deny that Ross is an abusive megalomaniac.

C'mon guys. Just one staffer to deny that about Ross.

Keep in mind, we're talking about 2 people who had to take his crap or lose their paycheck. Imagine 950 deputies subjected to this.

Go Niners!
