As a California taxpayer, I was appalled by the San Diego County grand jury report on the damage deliberately caused to the closed Dana Junior High School in Point Loma by the San Diego Police Department SWAT team, the FBI and Marine teams for training.
This deliberate damage was inflicted upon the school with the blessing of and with the permission of the San Diego Board of Education.
From a taxpayer's point of view, it is unconscionable for the board to allow this damage to happen to public school property entrusted to its care and protection. It is even more unconscionable when we consider the fact that almost every school district in San Diego County is grossly overcrowded.
The statements made by Kay Davis, board president, and Tina Dyer, district legal counsel, concerning the grand jury report are nothing more than empty rhetoric and are irrelevant to the damage to the publicly-owned Dana Junior High School.
