Austin is in Texas, but it’s definitely not “red”- its Democrat Mayor, Steve Adler, has been a vocal supporter of defunding the police. To prove it, he intermittently fell asleep during the funeral for Austin Police Officer Anthony “Tony” Martin who died in a motorcycle crash on September 23 while on his way home after working the night shift. On top of it, only one Austin City Council member bothered to attend the service.
“This service wasn’t just a check list for us. It was the honor & respect of a man who has served his country and community his WHOLE life. My family needed to see him honored not [disrespected]. My husband, their father who doesn’t get to ever come home again, doesn’t get to go to SLEEP next to me EVER again, doesn’t get to RETIRE in four years from now, who doesn’t get to enjoy those golden years with me. I know he doesn’t mean anything to you but could you have at least pretended for just one hour.” Amberlee Martin, widow of Tony Martin
Officer Martin was a 20 year Air Force veteran who was only 4 years away from retirement at the Austin Police Department. He leaves behind a wife, 3 children, and one granddaughter. He started at the APD in 2006.
You have time and time again shown nothing but contempt and utmost disrespect towards the men and women of the Austin Police Department but also our families @MayorAdler

Austin Mayor Adler and the city council voted to slash $150 Million from the police budget in 2020. Texas lawmakers passed a law against defunding the police that restored $133 Million of it.
The response to the posting of the sleeping Austin Mayor was classic:
“This is what a real honest to goodness JERK looks like.” Vtr_Racing
“As I mother of an APD Officer I am continually offended by this man.” M. Rooney
“The BIGGER Story: Only 1 City Council member attended. Despicable, especially since they all just gave themselves a 40% raise.” P Ptoyka
“He’s a disgrace to Texas!” Bravojf
