Chief McAllister is apparently a good man who has done many good things to help others in the community. He has served thirty years on the police force, but somehow he has failed his son who is a menace to society, who should be going to prison, and who is going to prison. This loving father ought to let his eighteen-year-old son go to prison for a while because it looks like it is going to take that for this boy to have a chance at turning his life around.
Here is what happened on that fateful day:
On Monday, 71-year-old Sahib Singh was attacked by two young men during his morning walk in Manteca, California.
The attack was captured by surveillance cameras and showed the two thugs beating the man while dressed in hoodies. One, who was wearing a black hoodie, was brandishing a gun.
Police now say that he is 18-year-old Tyrone McAllister, the son of Union City Police Department Chief Daryl McAllister.
McAllister and his wife then helped officers track his son down and arrest him
Tyrone has been charged with attempted robbery, elder abuse and assault with a deadly weapon.
The other suspect is a 16-year-old male who has not been named. He was arrested on the same charges and will be transferred to a juvenile facility after being processed.
Since Chief McAllister is a minister of God as the chief of police, like a pastor who has a problem keeping his son/family under control, he needs to sit down for a while until he gets his family healed up and gets his son back on the straight and narrow way.
We would like to commend this police chief for being honest, transparent, and forth-coming about this terrible situation and for putting on a clinic about taking responsibility and being honest as a police officer. Notice what he wrote on the police department’s Facebook page:
My fellow Union City Community Members:
It is not that often that I find myself sharing with the general public issues that pertain to my personal family life. I feel it is is a MUST that this be one of those rare occasions.
Throughout my entire time as your police chief, I have vowed to engage with you, be transparent with you, and stand with you as we work together to keep Union City as a pillar of community pride, trust, and public safety companionship. We have made such beautiful strides in that regard, but today we find ourselves with a level of concern (or at least curiosity) as it pertains to another city’s community crisis and its tangential impact on Union City.
By now you are probably aware of news stories about a 71-year old Sikh man was accosted by two young men as he innocently walked down a Manteca sidewalk next to a park. The two men confronted the man, apparently in an attempt to rob him, but when the elder did not cooperate, one of the men violently kicked the man in the chest, catapulting him to the ground, and then kicked him again several times as he lay defenseless on the pavement. The entire encounter was recorded on the security cameras of a nearby residence, and the footage of the crime was circulated all over Northern California news. The victim suffered only minor physical injuries, but as you can imagine, the greater Sikh community is devastated. While I was at National Night Out locations yesterday, several members of Union City’s Sikh community asked me if I had heard about the disturbing crime, and they asked me to weigh in on how we could prevent this type of horrific crime in Union City.
I am completely disgusted in sharing with you that, later yesterday evening, I received a call from the Manteca PD that the suspect in this horrific crime turns out to by my 18-year old son. He has been estranged from our family and our home for several months now.
Words can barely describe how embarrassed, dejected, and hurt my wife, daughters, and I feel right now. Violence and hatred is not what we have taught our children; intolerance for others is not even in our vocabulary, let alone our values. Crime has never been an element of our household, our values, nor the character to which we hold ourselves.
Despite having the desire any parent would have in wanting to protect their child, my oath is (and always will be) to the law and my vow of integrity guides me through this horrendous difficulty. My stomach has been churning from the moment I learned this news. Even though my status as a law enforcement leader has no bearing or relation to the case whatsoever, I am nonetheless devastated by how much the nature of my son’s actions are such a departure from everything I have stood for in my personal life, and in my 37-year policing career.
