Nevada sheriff tells library that supports Black Lives Matter not to call 911

October 8, 2020

A Nevada county sheriff instructed an area library not to trouble calling 911 for assist after it expressed help for Black Lives Matter, in accordance to a report.

In a press release of range and inclusion, the Douglas County public library denounced “all acts of violence, racism and disrespect for human rights,” The Reno Gazette-Journal reported.

“We help #BlackLivesMatter,” the assertion, drafted by the county’s board of library trustees, continued. “We resolutely assert and consider that all types of racism, hatred, inequality and injustice don’t belong in our society.”

However the message prompted Douglas County Sheriff Dan Coverley to put up a sharply worded open letter on the sheriff’s workplace web site, the Gazette-Journal reported.

“Due to your help of Black Lives Matter and the apparent lack of help or belief with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Workplace, please do not really feel the necessity to call 911 for assist,” Coverley wrote.

“I want you good luck with disturbances and lewd conduct, since these are simply a few of the latest calls my workplace has assisted you with prior to now.”

“Quite a few Black Lives Matter protests have resulted in violence, property harm and the closing of native companies, generally completely,” the sheriff added. “To help this motion is to help violence and to overtly ask for it to occur in Douglas County.”

The draft range assertion was supposed to be thought of by the board of trustees at a Tuesday assembly, however that dialogue was tabled “due to [an] overwhelming quantity of neighborhood response,” county spokeswoman Melissa Blosser instructed the outlet.

Coverley and Library Director Amy Dodson met for a dialogue on Tuesday, after which issued a joint assertion on the matter.
