Former Austin police officer rips new chief, pens scathing letter rejecting offer to return

  Former Austin police officer rips new chief, pens scathing letter rejecting offer to return A former Austin, Texas police officer who left the force amid the city’s move to defund the police sent a scathing letter to the department rejecting their offer to hire him back. "I am personally offended by your offer," the former officer wrote in a letter obtained by Fox News in response to the city’s offer of $5,000 plus extra benefits for returning to duty. "I did not leave APD for money. I suspect my peers did not either. No amount of money could make me return. The offer from the chief shows just how out of touch he is with his officers. What we crave is leadership. The one thing that has been consistently withheld.

Rep. Cori Bush, the firebrand 'squad' member and outspoken supporter of defunding police, dropped nearly $65,000 more into private security services over the past three months, campaign filings released Friday show.

The Missouri Democrat's campaign spent $64,141.26 on private security between the beginning of July and late September, the Federal Election Commission records show. The cash was dished out to a handful of firms, including Peace Security, RS&T Security Consulting, Aegis Logistics, Whole Armor Executive Protection & Security, and Nathaniel Davis, whose payments are sent to the same address as her campaign headquarters.

"He said he's proud of it! Unbelievable.

Bush has now pushed more than $130,000 from her campaign's coffers into private security services over the past six months.

The new cash follows the nearly $70,000 Bush's campaign spent on "security services" between April 15 and June 18, Fox News previously reported.

Bush faced heavy criticism following the report and defended the expenditures.

CORI BUSH DEFENDS CALLING TO DEFUND THE POLICE WHILE HAVING PRIVATE SECURITY: ‘YOU WOULD RATHER ME DIE?’

"They would rather I die?" Bush asked when questioned on the payments by CBS News in August. "You would rather me die? Is that what you want to see? You want to see me die? You know because that could be the alternative."

Bush said she hires security over attempts on her life and has "too much work to do."

  Mayorkas investigation into Border Patrol 'whipping' incident drags on The investigation by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) into the September incident with Border Patrol agents on horseback has yet to conclude despite initial assurances from the Biden administration that it would be wrapped up in days."The investigation is ongoing. The Department is committed to a thorough, independent, and objective process. We are also committed to transparency and will release the results of the investigation once it is complete," a spokesperson for DHS wrote in a Saturday email, according to The Washington Examiner.

"So suck it up, and defunding the police has to happen," she added.

Shortly after Bush's vigorous defense of the payments, St. Louis' KMOV4 discovered through obtained surveillance camera footage, that Bush had hired two sheriff's deputies, Tylance Jackson and Maurice Thompson, as part of her security.

The discovery led to the termination of Jackson and Thompson, who had failed to get approval for the side gig, St. Louis Sheriff Vernon Betts said at the time.

Bush's campaign did not immediately respond to a Fox News request for comment.
