The woman who hates the police and doesn’t want them to exist had *two* sheriff deputies on her private security detail.
Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) has come under fire for wanting to defund the police, while keeping her private security.
Bush justified the security because her body is priceless to this planet. (Yes, you can laugh. I laughed…a lot!)
It turns out the woman who hates the police had two St. Louis sheriff deputies on her detail.
They got caught by Sheriff Vernon Betts in person…in St Louis:
Recent federal filings show she’s spent $70,000 in campaign funds since taking office for private security services. Back in April, Bush, St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones and other notables took a tour of the city’s jails. News 4 obtained surveillance video from the tours and along with all others, two security guards were there to protect Bush: Tylance Jackson and Maurice Thompson.
Also there that day was St. Louis Sheriff Vernon Betts who told News 4 he was surprised to see the two security guards because they also worked for him. The sheriff told News 4 Jackson and Thompson violated policy by not getting approval to work a secondary shift as security guards. He said the two were warned not to do it again but several weeks later, he said his office was called by the VA police in Jefferson Barracks who said the two men were again providing security for Bush.
Betts also said Jackson and Thomas do not “have current individual private security licenses to work in the city.”
KMOV confirmed the information.
Thomas and Jackson already received warnings in the past for working security for Bush. So it’s not the first time.
Jackson described his firing as unfair even though it sounds like Betts had a valid reason:
When he talked to News 4, Jackson said he believes the sheriff had another motive. “Because of the client we worked for and we didn’t push the agenda of the sheriff on the client.” And when it comes to licenses, he said he didn’t need one. “You do not need a security license to do executive protection because if I hire you to protect me, I am paying you out of pocket. You don’t need a license for that.”
