After Tucson, Stacy Ritter Wants More Security -- From "Bloggers"

In the wake of the Tucson shooting, Broward County Commissioner Stacy Ritter said at yesterday's public meeting that she wants to beef up security and have metal detectors at the county governmental building.

All That Glitters, who watched the meeting (I didn't), reported the following on the previous post: "She wanted to have weapon detectors outside the doors of the Commission because she was afraid of what people were saying on the blogs about her. She brought up one comment in particular where she said someone posted that they wished her father were a better shot."

I'm getting the transcript of the meeting and will see exactly what was said and will update. I'm also trying to locate that comment (don't know if it was posted here or not).

UPDATED: The full (and raw) transcript of Ritter's remarks comes after the jump, but here's a small excerpt.

"In eight years in the state House no one ever stopped me at a restaurant or a Publix and said, 'Don't I know you? You look familiar.' I was getting my nails done last week; the woman said you look familiar. I don't know how you know me, what's your name? Samantha Rutgers. But you are very recognizable as a local elected official. Most people cannot tell you who their member of Congress is or [identify] a picture. But they know who we are by we look familiar to them. I know you from somewhere and it just would give me -- I can't put it into words."

Look, I'm not against metal detectors at County Hall, especially if it negates the need to check everybody's driver's license and tediously write down their DL number. But that is a very bizarre reaction from Ritter to a constituent who happens to recognize her. Ritter, after all, is putting videos of herself on YouTube every week and holding publicly announced "Coffee With Stacy" meetings at bagel shops where I'm pretty sure there are no metal detectors.

But Ritter also stepped way over the line when talking about "bloggers." From the transcript:

"There might come a time when somebody is pissed off enough to do what the bloggers want them to do to me, which is to shoot me, and by extension, all of us," she said.

What? Because of an anonymous comment made after her own father menaced her with a gun, she extrapolates that "bloggers" want to shoot her and the entire commission?

Totally ridiculous, though no one condones such a comment even if made in jest. You might remember that Ritter chose to tell the harrowing story of her father's assault here on this blog -- in part, she told me at the time, because she felt that the Pulp coverage had been responsible.

Inside, you can read her full comments.

The transcript is raw:

RITTER: I WANT TO REMIND EVERYBODY THAT I AM SACRIFICING MY TUESDAY EVENING AT THE CANVASSING BOARD TONIGHT.  I KNOW THAT I WAS GIVEN MANY KUDOS LAST WEEK WHEN I AGREED TO DO IT, BUT I WANTED TO REMIND EVERYBODY THAT I AM DOING IT. AND FINALLY ON A LESS HAPPY --WELL, ON A SERIOUS NOTE, AS A COUNTY COMMISSIONER NOW FOR FOUR YEARS, A LITTLE OVER FOUR YEARS, I HAVE FOUND STRIKING DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE SERVICE AT THE LOCAL LEVEL AND THE
SERVICE AT -- PUBLIC SERVICE AT THE LOCAL LEVEL AND PUBLIC SERVICE AT THE STATE LEVEL AND I HAVE OFTEN SHARED THOSE WITH THOSE OF YOU ON THE DAIS AND ON OUT THERE AS TO THE DIFFERENCES, BUT THIS SATURDAY'S EVENTS IN ARIZONA LED ME TO ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE STRIKING DIFFERENCES BETWEEN PUBLIC SERVICE AT THE LOCAL LEVEL AND AT THE STATE AND EVEN THE FEDERAL LEVEL WHERE I'VE NEVER SERVED. WE ARE FAR MORE ACCESSIBLE AS LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTED OFFICIALS THAN STATE LEGISLATORS OR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS. UNLIKE TALLAHASSEE, WHERE NO MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC CAN GET ON TO THE FLOOR OF THE HOUSE OR THE SENATE OR WASHINGTON WHERE NO MEMBER OF THE FLOOR CAN GET ON THE FLOOR WITH CONGRESS OR UNITED STATES SENATE, ANYONE CAN WALK INTO THE GOVERNMENT CENTER ON ANY GIVEN DAY, ESPECIALLY TUESDAY, AND FIND US HERE WITHOUT HAVING TO GO THROUGH ANY KIND OF SECURITY OTHER THAN SHOWING A DRIVER'S
LICENSE AT THE FRONT DOORS, AND AS THE -- ONE OF THE OTHER STRIKING DIFFERENCES IS THAT PEOPLE SEEM TO GET MORE EMOTIONAL AT THE LOCAL LEVEL THAN THEY DO AT THE STATE LEVEL. THE ISSUES ARE DIFFERENT, AND THEY IMPACT PEOPLE MORE ON A DAILY BASIS, AND WE HAVE SEEN MANY ANGRY PEOPLE PASS THROUGH THESE DOORS, WHETHER IT'S THE BUDGET OR TRANSIT, YOU NAME IT. WE HAVE SEEN MANY ANGRY PEOPLE PASS THROUGH THESE DOORS, AND I KNOW THAT I PERSONALLY HAVE BEEN THE SUBJECT OF MUCH ATTACK IN THE BLOGS, SOME OF WHICH HAVE SUGGESTED DURING THE PAST YEAR THAT IT WAS TOO BAD MY FATHER DIDN'T HAVE BULLETS IN THE GUN AND SHOOT ME. NONE OF THESE PEOPLE OF COURSE PUT THEIR NAMES ON THIS STUFF WHICH EITHER MAKES THEM MORE DANGEROUS OR LESS DANGEROUS, I DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE IT IS. AND I RECALL ONE TIME DURING THE PAST YEAR OR SO THAT WE HAD A MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC COME WHO OFTEN COMES TO THE COUNTY COMMISSION AND SHE WAS SPEAKING TO US AS SHE DOES OFTEN, AND SHE REACHED INTO A BIG PURSE THAT SHE WAS CARRYING AND SOME OF US ACTUALLY FLINCHED. SHE DIDN'T PULL OUT A GUN. SHE PULLED OUT A BUNCH OF PILL BOTTLES. SHE PUT THEM ON THE DAIS AND TOLD US THAT WE HAD REDUCED HER TO TAKING DRUGS, BUT I RECALL A CONVERSATION IN THE BACK AFTER THAT WHERE A COUPLE OF US THOUGHT THAT SHE MIGHT HAVE BEEN LOOKING, PUTTING HER HAND IN HER PURSE TO DRAW OUT A WEAPON, AND IT ACTUALLY PASSED THROUGH OUR MIND, AND WE HAVE SECURITY HERE, AND THIS IS CERTAINLY NO KNOCK ON THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO GUARD US HERE, ESPECIALLY THE CUTIE ... IN THE BLACK T-SHIRT. ... BUT SOMEBODY COULD THEORETICALLY GET OFF A FEW SHOTS BEFORE TACKLED, AND I DON'T -- AND I DON'T MEAN TO BLOW THIS UP AND MAKE THIS KNEE-JERK, BUT I'VE THOUGHT ABOUT IT A LOT DURING MY SERVICE AS A COUNTY COMMISSIONER, AND I WAS WONDERING IF WE COULD LOOK AT INSTALLING METAL DETECTORS AT THE ENTRANCES. YOU KNOW, I GO BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN KEEPING IT OPEN AND ACCESSIBLE AND KEEPING US ALSO SAFE AND SECURE. WE'VE NEVER HAD AN ISSUE, BUT NEITHER DID BAY COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD UNTIL THE GUY WALKED IN WITH A GUN LAST MONTH. CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS LAST YEAR OR THE YEAR BEFORE THERE WAS A SHOOTING AT THE CITY COUNCIL IN THE AMERICAN HEART LAND IN THE MIDWEST SOMEWHERE AND OF COURSE WHAT HAPPENED SATURDAY. WE ARE ALWAYS OUT THERE. OUR SCHEDULES ARE PUBLIC ACCESS AND WHILE YOU CAN'T HAVE PROTECTION EVERYWHERE YOU GO AND [THAT] WOULD BE STRANGE AND FOR ME UNCOMFORTABLE AND I'M SURE THE REST. I WAS WONDERING IF THERE WAS A WAY WE COULD LOOK TO BEEF UP SOME OF THE SECURITY HERE AT THE GOVERNMENT CENTER.

Commissioners Lois Wexler and John Rodstrom agreed with Ritter, with Wexler pointing out that the Broward County School Board is also going to install metal detectors at the K.C. Wright building. Wexler, a former School Board member, said she spent "many years" during which "the first thing I thought about was where I was going to duck if there were weapons drawn." Only Kristin Jacobs voiced disagreement with the idea, saying detectors are costly and wouldn't make commissioners more secure. She pointed out, incisively, that Rep. Giffords was shot in a supermarket parking lot in Tucson.

Ritter then finished her comments:

Ritter: EVEN BEFORE THIS INCIDENT, THERE HAVE BEEN TIMES WHEN I HAVE BEEN AFRAID, WHEN -- AND I DO WHAT YOU DO, I SCAN THE CROWD ALL THE TIME, AND YOU CAN'T -- I DON'T KNOW HOW THE SECRET SERVICE DO IT BECAUSE THIS ISN'T THAT BIG A CROWD EVEN WHEN WE HAVE AN OVERFLOW, BUT, AGAIN, IF YOU WANT TO GET IN THE HOUSE OFFICE BUILDING, YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH A METAL DETECTOR. IT WASN'T LIKE THAT WHEN I FIRST GOT TO TALLAHASSEE, BUT IT WAS LIKE THAT TOWARD THE END OF MY SERVICE, AND IT WAS -- FOR ME, IT WAS NICE TO KNOW THAT IF YOU WERE THERE ON BUSINESS, THEN HAD TO GO THROUGH A METAL DETECTOR. IF YOU WERE THERE TO DO SOMETHING CRAZY OR BAD, YOU COULDN'T GET THROUGH IF YOU HAD SOMETHING IN YOUR PURSE OR YOUR BRIEFCASE OR YOUR POCKET. I DON'T -- I STRUGGLE WITH THIS AS WELL. I'M NOT GOING TO STOP DOING WHAT I DO, AND I'M NOT GOING TO BE STOPPING BEING AS OUTSPOKEN AS I AM ON THE ISSUES THAT ARE IMPORTANT, BUT I CAN ONLY TELL YOU THAT THE VERY ANGRY PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN IN HERE HAVE OFTEN GIVEN ME PAUSE, AND IT SEEMS TO JUST BE GETTING ANGRIER, NOT LESS SO. SO NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO, SOMEBODY IS PISSED OFF, AND, YOU KNOW, THERE JUST MIGHT COME A TIME WHEN THAT SOMEBODY IS PISSED OFF ENOUGH TO DO WHAT THE BLOGGERS WANT THEM TO DO TO ME, WHICH IS SHOOT ME, AND BY EXTENSION, ALL OF US, AND I THINK THAT IF WE CAN JUST -- I DON'T KNOW, I LOVE THIS JOB, AND I'M NOT GOING TO LET PEOPLE PUSH ME OUT OF IT BECAUSE THEY DON'T LIKE ME, BUT I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO -- IT JUST -- IT JUST SEEMS LIKE IT'S SOMETHING THAT JUST WOULD GIVE US A LITTLE BIT MORE COMFORT LEVEL, JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE COMFORT. IS IT GOING TO STOP IT?  I DON'T KNOW, BUT I DON'T THINK IT -- I DON'T THINK IT DOES ANY HARM. IN FACT, I THINK IT MIGHT VERY WELL, DO A GREAT DEAL OF GOOD. CAN THEY FIND US AT A SUPERMARKET?  YOU BETCHA. 

Jacobs:  AND THEY DO. 

Ritter. AND THEY DO, WHICH IS ANOTHER THING THAT GIVES ME PAUSE BECAUSE IN EIGHT YEARS IN THE STATE HOUSE NO ONE EVER STOPPED ME AT A RESTAURANT OR A PUBLIX AND SAID:  DON'T I KNOW YOU. YOU LOOK FAMILIAR.  I WAS GETTING MY NAILS DONE LAST WEEK.  THE WOMAN SAID:  YOU LOOK FAMILIAR.  I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU KNOW HE. WHAT'S YOUR NAME?  SAMANTHA RUTGERS. BUT YOU ARE VERY RECOGNIZABLE AS A LOCAL ELECTED OFFICIAL. MOST PEOPLE CANNOT TELL YOU WHO THEIR MEMBER OF CONGRESS IS OR A PICTURE, BUT THEY KNOW WHO WE ARE BY WE LOOK FAMILIAR TO THEN.  I KNOW YOU FROM SOMEWHERE, AND IT JUST WOULD GIVE ME -- I CAN'T PUT IT INTO WORDS. IT'S JANUARY UNCOMFORTABLE CONVERSATION. WHO WOULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT WE'D HAVE TO HAVE THE CONVERSATION ABOUT PUBLIC SAFETY OF ELECTED OFFICIALS?  OH, THERE HAVE BEEN
ASSASSINATIONS THROUGHOUT HISTORY. THEY HAVE BEEN FEW AND FAR BETWEEN. WE EXPECT IT NEVER TO HAPPEN IN THIS COUNTRY, BUT IT DOES. IT HAPPENS. I'M SORRY.

Stacy Ritter and the County Commission needs to stop being so worried about adding security and focus more on not being so corrupt. Then they can stop looking over there shoulder.

Ritter can't get the kind of security she really needs because the constitution covers the mightiest weapon that is assaulting her...Bob Norman's keyboard.

she should get her dad arrested. He's the only one who has threatened her with a real weapon. Why wasn't that a sign that she should vacate the office and this town? I always say, Father Knows Best

Stacy is very much like her friend Scott Rothstein. Scotty acted like he was the one in need of security but in reality it was the public who needed security from Rothstein because of his Dubious acts. The bloggers need protection from Stacy.

Since the tragedy in Tucson was, everyone agrees, the work of a violent paranoid schizophrenic, I'll be waiting to see if Stacy Ritter, while selfishly and foolishly calling for more security for herself (and clearly she hopes the 'cutie in the black tee' will be one of her providers), I'll be waiting to see if she also embraces the cause of improving services to the mentally ill and destigmatizing mental illness so that families do not feel so ashamed they hide away their extremely sick members -- instead of obsessively worrying about her own fat, undoubtedly dimpled ass.

This was the work of an insane person and you can never legislate against insanity but you can create an environment where help is easier to get and the stigma is lessened for the parents of all the Jared Loughrans out there.

Broward County Commissioner Stacy Ritter made comments at a recent county commission hearing, where she stated “this Saturday’s events in Arizona led me to another one of those striking differences between public service at the local level and at the state and even the federal level where I’ve never served . . . even before this incident, there have been times when I have been afraid, when -- and I do what you do, I scan the crowd all the time . . . I can only tell you that the very angry people that have been in here have often given me pause . . . ” She referred to another incident, of which she seemed to correlate the anger of her constituents to be one and the same as those who have been posting in the blogosphere, stating “I personally have been the subject of much attack in the blogs, some of which have suggested during the past year that it was too bad my father didn’t have bullets in the gun and shoot me,” making statements about the level of danger projected by the nameless, faceless bloggers (when, in reality, the danger was NOT FROM ANY BLOGGER, but that from her own father who had a desire to shoot her).

WTF??? In trying to tie in the horrific, heartrending event of the attempted assassination of a very caring, honest, & open U.S. Congresswoman in Arizona (and killings, maiming, and injuries to the innocent bystanders), by what can only be described as a tormented, mentally unstable individual, Stacy Ritter went into an alarming tirade, in what appears to be ever-present worries (that have existed for quite some time) about her own self-preservation, into which her mind wandered, when she inserted mention of a person in the county’s security detail, saying “I recall a conversation in the back after that where a couple of us thought that she might have been looking, putting her hand in her purse to draw out a weapon, and it actually passed through our mind, and we have security here, and this is certainly no knock on the men and women who guard us here, especially the cutie…in the black t-shirt…but somebody could theoretically get off a few shots before tackled.”

How does this worry about a constituent lining-up pill bottles in front of her while making a statement that the commissioners have driven her (not to drink, but) to self-medicate, make this commissioner go into a paranoid rant, while at the same time blurt out her notice of an employee that is “the cutie…in the black t-shirt.” WTF? What the H*LL was she thinking? Where is this woman’s mind? How confused is this lawmaker?

After her blundering elucidation about what she must have believed was terrorizing her, it seems as though she tried to justify her fright, by giving a clear description of her boogeyman. Nevertheless, she appeared to have reverted back into another part of her histrionic self-serving nature, when jumbling together a story, replete in her panic, that “Somebody is pissed off, and, you know, there just might come a time when that somebody is pissed off enough to do what the bloggers want them to do to me, which is shoot me, and by extension all of us.”

Can there be something scary in the perception of this boogeyman -- when this person (haunted by visions of this boogeyman), serves the citizenry in a high public leadership position, while somehow reaching the conclusion that people who converse with others, on a blog (for a reputable newsjournal), have conspired to harm her, as well as, by design, may be planning on harming her fellow commissioners. WTF? Where is this woman with such an hysterical personality going with this thought process? WOW!! We should be grateful that Ken Keechl has been taken off the commission. Just imagine -- what with that one strike and you’re out doggie dead law, a human could just as well been scribbled in as the animal that would not deserve any hearing (since the sentence meted out was for the animal already being found dead wrong, through the first call made by the person charging the violation of the act).

TO THE COMMISSIONERS: Do not let the fear driven rhetoric of one of your own drive you to pass any more absurdities of law where the rights of the people are further maligned or senselessly trampled to death. Although speaking for myself, a general truth is that we, the people, have the right to free speech and a freedom of assembly, and we can and do discuss subjects openly on blogs. If any one of the commissioners should be experiencing fear at this time, especially when based on the rants of what has just been published, please seek professional help to get you through this terrifying time. The people can be better served if the person serving is not suffering from any one or a myriad of mental health issues. Unlike the majority of those in the general population, you have the benefit of an exceptional health plan that will pay for treatment. Feel free to use these benefits (with no Thomas Eagleton like repercussions or chiding). Please, do so in order that no harm should occur because of a knee jerk reaction to your fears. In this time of troubles, there will be stress. However, we need you to be able to handle these stressful situations -- even more so now, than ever. So, seek professional help, counseling, or the treatment that best suits your needs. And, if the fear is too much, step away from office. I’m sure that there are others who are willing and able to serve.

Don't the arrogant self-loving loonies like Ritter (rhymes with...) ever consider that if they were actually honest, decent public servants that "did the right thing", instead of the hypocritical lying taxpayer-money-stealing crooks that they repeatedly have been proven to be, that there would be no danger from an angry "mad as hell" public that they unconscionably, repeatedly screw over and ripoff???

Holy Shhhhiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit! You have got to be kidding me right? Of course a constituent finally recognized you -- your pic has been on the PULP because you are a criminal. When your own dad pops off rounds at you... Leave it to this POS to make herself the center of attention. She didn't say shit when the School Board shooting happened. Now all of a sudden she thinks she can get some traction on this issue. Who is giving this lady PR advice? When your under investigation, you stay out of the light -- Instead, she's finding every avenue to keep her name in the forefront of BC politics. This woman is totally irrational, egotistical and completely unfit to hold any office whatsoever. I don't wish her death - I will settle for her silence and disappearance from any position of power in this County. Now, if BC does ramp up security in govt. buildings, she will point to her epic speech on the issue and attempt to claim credit.

Stacy,

Remember when you wrote on your facebook page about waiting in Line with 500 people at Kohls and Marty Rubestein Commented (Blogged) that they were all waiting in line to beat up Bob Norman and YOU said "Good One Marty"....

Practice what you preach, Stacy. Bob Norman needs to be protected if that is the case.

After reading comments on here, I can totally see why anyone in local government would want metal detectors installed. I would be in favor of spending the $$ for it, too. Even if Pulp doesn't insight people to get violent, the anonymous posters on here are bringing up "shooting." (See the Ethel Merman comments below from herbcaenentertainmentaward.) TOTALLY uncalled for in an environment like this. Dislike someone if you want. Criticize them if you like. But bringing up shooting after something like that happening in Tuscon? SHAME on you!!!!!

Extremely unrelated news from Boynton Beach PD in what appears to be a very dramatic shoplifting case at Home Depot by a gang of cross-dressers. From a release by police spokewoman Stephanie Slater:

Four men, two of whom were dressed as women, are in custody this afternoon.They were caught stealing in Home Depot and confronted by Loss Prevention Officers.In an attempt to flee, they pepper sprayed the LP Officers - and in the process, many patrons in the store at the time. They fled in a red Ford Explorer, but were stopped in the Home Depot parking lot and taken into custody.It is unknown at the time how many people were affected by the pepper spray, but one older woman was taken to the hospital after she passed out from the fumes.The fire department is on scene treating patients and police are interviewing witnesses.At minimum, the suspects will be charged with armed robbery and aggravated battery.

Spacey Ritter ....Are you going to supply security to the Pulp and other activists who write about corruption in Browardtown? They are more at risk than an unethical greedy politician.......Mostly good honest respectable people are assassinated ie JFK, Lady Diana, John Lennon etc you have absolutely nothing to worry about there.....Myself I have accused Jefff Marano ex HPD of covering up the murder of Tom Sikes Aug99 and I have repeatedly said Neal Chambers and his mother Sharon Sikes conspired to have Tom killed......I was once told by a well known person in LE that either you keep your mouth shut and tell nobody or you tell every source possible.....On a lighter note I do have a friend who is a supplier for the Israeli Army, that could make your Golf Cart bulletproo!!!f

Pedantic (I would be the last to say there's anything wrong with that)? Maybe. Boring? For very sure.
