Bike Store Cancels Contract With Austin Bike Police After "Woke" Employees Complain

Bike Store Cancels Contract With Austin Bike Police After “Woke” Employees Complain

A bike store in Austin, Texas has cancelled its contract with the Austin Police bike patrol unit after three ‘woke’ employees complained that the bikes were being used for crowd control during Black Lives Matter protests.

In a Facebook post (since deleted), Christopher Carlisle explains how for eight years he maintained a contractual relationship with Mellow Johnny’s Bike store in downtown Austin to provide bikes and other equipment for the Down Town Area Command (DTAC) Bike Patrol and the Bicycle Public Order Team.

Now thanks to the last two months of BLM social justice protests in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd, that relationship is apparently over.

“Today I received a call the sales manager I have worked with for years at MJ’S, he informed me that they have three employees who work for them that are complaining about providing bikes to the police department in this time of social unrest in protest and disturbances,” writes Carlisle.

“They stated to ownership that they did not like the fact that we use bicycles to help us manage crowds and crowd movement.”

Carlisle asserts that the store caved in to the woke employees by canceling the contact with Austin police that had four years left to run, “because three employees do not like police officers and did not like us in the store.”

The APD had been purchasing around 40 TREK police bikes a year as part of the agreement, meaning the amount of income the store is sacrificing in order to satiate its leftist staffers is reasonably substantial.

Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop has since issued a statement on Facebook:

Dear Austin

In the context of the current evaluation of community policing in Austin, we have decided to no longer purchase, re-sell, and service police-issue Trek bikes and accessories under a City of Austin RFP the shop was previously awarded.

We regret not publicizing our decision before it was presented by others on social media. It’s difficult in these times to balance the needs of a business and a community. Our entire employee group was engaged in this dialogue and we delved deep into our community to understand how we could best do our part to keep our customers safe and this city moving in the right direction. These are certainly trying times and we understand people will object to any decision made along these lines.

Businesses can no longer be non-participants in the communities they serve. We chose what we think will do the most to suture these divides and place our community on the right side of history. We have had to make these choices before when we felt companies whose products we sold put kids at schools at risk of violence. We lost sales due to this choice. We also saw our former vendors later divest of holdings and we’ve returned to selling these products. We will live with the choices our customers make if they want to buy bikes and bike products somewhere else.

We are committed to the city of Austin and the community of cyclists that we serve every day.

We are not anti-police. We do believe our local police force will protect us from the very threats we are receiving right now.

We wish this entire community peace and progress and togetherness at the conclusion of these trying times. And we intend to be a part of the discourse, struggle, and growth for Austin, as we have since we opened our doors in 2008.

Tim Enlow responded to the news by posting, “That is their absolute right as business owners. It’s also every citizen’s right to decide to take their bicycle business elsewhere,” calling for a boycott of the store.

House Ethics Committee Rules Radical Dem Rep. Rashida Tlaib Violated Campaign Finance Laws, Orders Her to Refund Campaign $10,800

The House Ethics Committee on Friday ruled radical Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib (MI) violated campaign finance laws and ordered her to refund her campaign $10,800.

The Free Beacon first reported back in March of last year that Rashida Tlaib paid herself $45,500 from her campaign funds — $17,550 which was paid to Tlaib AFTER the 2018 election.

Tlaib, who is known for her Marxist beliefs and foul mouth, was elected to the House of Representatives in November of 2018 and continued to pay herself from her campaign funds in November and December after election day.

“If the candidate wins the primary election, his or her principal campaign committee may pay him or her a salary from campaign funds through the date of the general election, up to and including the date of any general election runoff,” FEC provisions state. “If the candidate loses the primary, withdraws from the race, or otherwise ceases to be a candidate, no salary payments may be paid beyond the date he or she is no longer a candidate.”

The Hill reported:

The House Ethics Committee is directing Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) to reimburse her campaign $10,800 after concluding she improperly received salary payments in late 2018 when she was no longer a candidate.

Tlaib must refund her campaign within a year, but is not facing any further sanction from the panel.

The Ethics Committee found that the salary payments that Tlaib received from the campaign were inconsistent with Federal Election Commission (FEC) requirements, although it concluded that her “violation of the applicable restrictions was one of bad timing and not ill intent.”

The panel said that it will consider the matter closed once Tlaib fully refunds her campaign, which she can make in smaller payments over the course of the next year.

“Based on its review, the committee determined that Representative Tlaib did not comply with the letter of the relevant laws and regulations governing her receipt of salary payments from her Campaign. The committee did not find evidence, however, that Representative Tlaib intended to unjustly enrich herself, and recognizes that she made efforts to ensure her compliance with the applicable requirements,” the Ethics Committee said in its report.

America-hating leftist Rep. Rashida Tlaib won her primary election Tuesday night in Michigan.
