I voted for the right man for sheriff. Adrian Garcia hasn’t taken office yet, but he’s showing that he is indeed bringing the right sort of change to the office of Harris County Sheriff.
The day before Thanksgiving, deputies reportedly terrorized a family of Sikhs when they responded to the call that their home had been burglarized. Current Sheriff Tommy Thomas has said nothing. He has not named those involved. He has not met with the family or the outraged Sikh community.
Sheriff-elect Adrian Garcia has met with the family, however. He has visited the Gurdwara. He promises a full investigation. He promises that the Sheriff’s Department will get diversity training–something HPD gets but the Sheriff’s Department doesn’t.
