Women Voters To Protest Candidate Paul Penzone This Friday For Allegedly Abusing a Hockey Mom
Phoenix, AZ –Women voters and hockey moms of Maricopa County do not want anyone who has a record of getting away with crimes. We do not support men who have a history of doing harm to women; therefore we are protesting Democratic candidate Paul Penzone this Friday, July 13, 2012, at his own fundraiser event. We already have a corrupt Republican Maricopa County Sheriff in power via Joe Arpaio who thinks he is above the law, and we do not believe in voting in another person who believes he is above the law, also.
PROTEST DATE: Friday, July 13, 2012
PROTEST TIME: 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
LOCATION: 4645 E Chandler Blvd, Suite 104, Phoenix, AZ
There is an appearance of evil due to the fact that an investigation by the Glendale Police Department may not have been fully accomplished with regard to Paul Penzone and the domestic violence police incident involving his wife. [The entire domestic violence police report can be seen here.] We read the domestic violence police report, and serious questions arise. Apparently Penzone’s wife had a documented head injury alleging Paul pushed her into a closed door after she went to retrieve hockey sticks for her son. How did Susan B. Penzone sustain the head contusion?
According to the police report, there was believed to be a neighbor across the street who may have witnessed the event. Only one attempt was made to interview the supposed witness, with no follow-up calls to ascertain a witness report. Was shoddy police work carried out in order to shield an off-duty police officer (Penzone) from getting arrested due to the “mandatory arrest law” in Arizona?
The Tequila Party will be making a public record’s request from the Phoenix Police Department for Penzone’s personnel file to determine whether or not an internal inquiry or discipline was ever conducted due to the nature of this incident. We will also make a public record’s request of the audio tapes taken by Glendale Police Department of Susan B. Penzone in order to hear her side of the story. We do not yet know to this day if the Phoenix Police Department disciplined Sergeant Paul Penzone due to the nature of his domestic violence incident, but we do know that the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association (PLEA) would not entertain endorsing one of their own (via Penzone) as Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.
According to Harry Byron, an Arizona resident and retired Los Angeles police officer, he states:
“For all we know, the incident could have prevented Penzone from being promoted to a leadership position. Leadership means to teach officers, inspire officers and reward them for good deeds but punishing them for wrong doing and abuse. Any time an off-duty officer is involved in any kind of potential criminal situation, the agency is required to conduct an internal affairs inquiry to determine whether or not he committed misconduct. One of the main categories of misconduct is ‘Conduct Unbecoming an Officer’ because as police officers, we ought to be held to higher standards. In other words, we should not do things that other people are arrested for.
Furthermore it appears the prosecutor declined to file the case based upon “He said-She said” and no probability of conviction, yet it appeared the son was never interviewed. Everyone should have been interviewed — the investigation intensive. And, if it showed Penzone actually pushed his wife into the door, appropriate discipline would have been carried out.”
How can women take Penzone seriously when in fact there are serious allegations that he is an abuser of women when women are fighting corrupt politicians like the former Senator Scott Bundgaard? It is unfortunate the Maricopa County Democratic Leadership via Ann Wallack did not properly vet Penzone, nor does he have the qualifying leadership skills to supervise the 3rd largest Sheriff’s department in our Nation when he retired as a mere sergeant. Asking a sergeant to run the 3rd largest county in the Nation is similar to asking a buck sergeant to run an entire military installation.
We believe Paul Penzone is Joe Arpaio’s easiest opponent, and will only spoil the vote in the Maricopa County Sheriff’s race particularly when independent voters are the 2nd largest voting block in our County. The Maricopa County Democratic Party leadership is underestimating the independent voting bloc when they marginalize their voting strength; therefore, the Tequila Party Movement will remind independent voters that they CAN vote in the Arizona primary elections.
