Racist MCPD officer gets US war veteran and holocaust survivor kicked off volunteer force

Dear Mr. Leggett:

This letter is to express my extreme disgust and indignation for your administration’s disrespectful, callous and ungrateful treatment of Mr. Alfred Eisner, in terminating him from service as a volunteer with the Montgomery County Police Department.

I am proud to count Al Eisner as a neighbor and close friend. He is a:

  • Holocaust survivor
  • Immigrant to the U.S. who became a citizen
  • Retiree from the US Army as a veteran of the Korean and Viet Nam Wars
  • Retiree from the Maryland State Militia, where he attained the rank of Lt. Colonel
  • Volunteer with the Montgomery County Police (MCPD), in which he served ten thousand and one hundred (10,100) hours
Al’s devotion to the United States, State of Maryland and Montgomery County is undoubted, proven by his actions and can be equaled by very few.

Al Eisner wore his Montgomery County Police identification and entry pass at all times to be ready to respond, as a volunteer, to an emergency, if needed.

On June 21, 2008 Al Eisner attended a legally permitted protest at the Derwood Hispanic Job Center. He wore his MCPD Identification and his Wheaton Swim Center pass on a nylon neck strap with the swim pass facing forward. Due to movement during the demonstration the MCPD Volunteer ID rotated forward, exposing it to the front. Al Eisner was not representing himself as an MCPD functionary, or official.

In response to the legal demonstration, by concerned citizens, at the Derwood Hispanic Job Center there was a detailed Montgomery County Police presence. Present at the demonstration was PO3 Luis Hurtado (shield number 0463), who is the MCPD liaison to the Hispanic community (Community Outreach Officer). PO3 Luis Hurtado has known Al Eisner for approximately ten (10) years and has an office two doors down the corridor from Al Eisner’s office as a volunteer.

During the protest PO3 Hurtado came over to Al Eisner, who was standing in the group of demonstrators. PO3 Hurtado engaged Al Eisner in cordial and jovial conversation; joking that, “The Sheriff said to pick him up”. The light hearted conversation continued for several minutes. At no time during the exchange did PO3 Hurtado inform Al Eisner that his MCPD ID had become visible and that Al should remove or cover the ID. This matter was not an issue until PO3 Hurtado made it one with his superiors. The question is why a Hispanic officer, who is liaison to the Hispanic community, brought this trivial matter to the status of becoming an issue.

PO3 Hurtado and the other officers present turned a blind eye to the illegal aliens at the Hispanic Job Center who were making obscene gestures and calling epithets at the legally permitted protestors. Also, the officers ignored the chaplain for the Hispanic Job Center going over to the Protestors and called them “racists” (the last ditch accusation and resort of liberals).

The reprehensible treatment of Al Eisner by the MCPD and the Montgomery County Government reflects the disdain the County Government has for the citizens who built the county. Instead of coddling the illegal aliens, who break the laws and ordinances, it should be paramount that the County Executive Branch enforces our laws.

Al Eisner deserves to be honored at an award ceremony and presented a certificate for his Ten Thousand and One Hundred (10,100) hours of volunteer service to the Montgomery County Police Department. He has been cheated of this due honor and tossed aside in preference to illegal aliens. These same illegal aliens contribute nothing to the county, take benefits that they have not earned and do not deserve, sap the county’s fiscal strength, clog our hospital emergency rooms and destroy the fabric of our society.

I would like to end this letter with “Respectfully Yours”, but the actions taken; towards Al Eisner; by the County Government and the MCPD administration preclude a respectful sign off.

A citizen who is truly ashamed of the MCPD Administration and Montgomery County Government,

Jerry M.

This is a blatant violation of Mr. Eisner's 1st Amendment rights. The ironic thing is that he is a volunteer enforcing the law, punished for protesting a day laborer center that breaks federal immigration law EVERY SINGLE DAY!

If Mr. Eisner had been attending a rally in support of the rights of cross-dressers, amnesty for illegal aliens, or the immediate pullout of US troops from Iraq, do you think he'd suffer this way?

Paul Mendez is right on the mark. Why does Montgomery County have 2 policies- one for citizens and one for illegal aliens and their supporters? Mr. Eisner is a hero!

Al Eisner was an asset to the police dppartment and deserves better. He worked with me as a valued volunteer with thousands of selfless hours dedicated to the people of Montgomery County.

He deserves to be honored with his 10,000 hour certificate.

This is absolutely dispicable. What is going to become of our state and our country? What does it take to get people to see the disastrous consequences of this corruptocracy that they have created, replacing the unskilled workforce with illegal aliens? What will happen in ten years? You can't keep this up forever. So what then? More illegal immigrants until we're as dense and disaffected as some third world urban agglomeration?
