Stupidity On Display In Costa Mesa
Just when you start wondering what else is going to happen in Costa Mesa some idiot throws a brick through the door of Mayor Gary Monahan's pub in the wee hours of the morning Saturday!
According to local news reports - Frank Mickadeit of the Orange County Register may have been the first one on the scene and reported HERE, Monahan's employee said the event happened around 2:30 but the police report the first alert of it happened at 3:26. Regardless, reports indicate that it took 40 minutes for the police to arrive at the scene because there was a major disturbance elsewhere in town.
VANDALISM OR THREAT TO A PUBLIC OFFICIAL?
And, according to Mickadeit's report, Monahan is peeved because this event is being handled as vandalism instead of something more serious. The text on the note taped to the brick was not available to Mickadeit, and Monahan was vague about it.
WHAT A BONEHEAD!
In my opinion, whomever chucked that brick through Monahan's door is a real bonehead! If the police are able to identify the person who did it I hope they toss him in jail and let him ferment there for awhile.
MONAHAN DOESN'T DESERVE THIS STUFF
Regardless how insensitive Monahan was on St. Patrick's Day and in the weeks subsequent, there is no reason to do something so stupid. All this does is further inflame an already incendiary situation.
What about the security for the Feet To The Fire Forum Monday and the council meeting Tuesday? You have to think that the CMPD leadership will pay very close attention to those events now.
