A Christmas toy-give-away event turned ugly; in the eye of the storm is Rick Daniels (City Manager) and DHS Police officer Paul Tapai. (The President of the DHS Police Association).

The reason is still unclear, why the event could not be held at the Senior Center. But it caused a firestorm, and citizen went on the street to protest and airing their complains with very provocative signs.

Their full wrath of anger goes after the “The Gang of Five” City Manager Rick Daniels, City Attorney Ruben Duran, Finance Director Jason Simpson, Mayor Yvonne Parks and Councilman  Scott Matas.
