Observing the Second Anniversary of the infamous "MEAT" Trujillo Email

Its the Second Anniversary of the infamous, vile and repudiate "Bullet Between the Eyes Email" by Michael "MEAT" Trujillo.
 Happy Second Anniversary MEAT!

** Blogger's note: Great beautiful Super Bowl Sunday morning to all as we make preparations to view America's greatest sporting spectacle. For this blogger, Super Bowl Sundays will always have a moment of reflection on what transpired two years ago on Super Bowl Sunday in 2011, during the heated CD 14 City Council Contest between City Councilman Jose Huizar and challenger Rudy Martinez. As I many of us associated with the campaign proceedings were making their way to locations of choice to view the game, Martinez Campaign staff were disclosing the Trujillo crafted email below to various media sources. The story went viral on Monday and resulted in Trujillo's termination as Councilman Huizar's Campaign Manager. Trujillo, who is currently associated with the CD 13 City Council Campaign of John Choi, was quickly forgiven by the machine but the sting of the email will live on in the Martinez Family, who had lost a member due to gun violence. In closing, as we prep to enjoy the festivities today which includes a performance by the Sandy Hook School Choir, let this email serve as a teachable tool on what constitutes (or not in this email case) appropriate discourse in political dialog, especially in a country that finds itself immerse in grief and debate, in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Tragedy---Scott Johnson.            
 The missing name (blank spot) in email contacts above was Ed Headington, who was under contract with CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar and requested that his name be removed. maybe this was the reason why Headington wanted no association with the email.
This email shall never be forgotten.

Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14

Pure silliness. He made a foolish statement and apologized, but many in politics have done worse. If someone really thinks he was implying a threat of violence towards Martinez, then Martinez needs to get a grip.

Does MEAT live in Van Nuys? I think he may be my neighbor.
