MCALLEN, TX – Law Enforcement Today reported on Officer Ismael Chavez, who was murdered this week in McAllen. Savannah Chavez is Officer Chavez’ daughter. Yesterday, she posted on Twitter about mourning the recent loss of her father.   

Grieving the tragic and untimely death of her father, Savannah tweeted another heart-felt post, this time saying that her father died a hero and that she loved him.

What happened next was not what she or anyone else would have ever expected.

Instead of receiving heart-warming responses from others sympathizing with her loss, a large portion of the replies and quote-tweets were from antagonistic Antifa and Black Lives Matter-aligned accounts mocking her and celebrating the death of her father.

Some even lectured her on how her father wasn’t really a good person.

The tweet became so overwhelmingly hostile that Savannah has since deleted it.

Savannah used the hashtag #bluelivesmatter, which angered some. Aside from saying things like “blue lives do NOT matter,” and “fuck blue lives” to this poor grieving girl,  “ACAB,” or, All Cops are Bastards, were also found in many users’ responses to her tweet. 

Others responded by saying they were glad to know that her dad had finally become a “good” cop, stating that only good law enforcement officers are the dead ones.

Images, videos, and tweet replies came pouring in. 

Some users commented to Savannah that this was “not the time” to post on her father’s death.

Savannah was simply mourning the death of her beloved father, the same way many other human beings would do if they were in the same situation.

Instead of respecting that, these commenters made it seem like she had some other choice, as if she should mourn the loss of her father at a later date, when it was more convenient to those protesting against her father’s profession.

Officer Chavez served two and a half years with the McAllen Police department and was 39-years-old when he was shot and killed serving and protecting his community. He was a former economics and chemistry teacher and a loving father.

Here is what the tweet originally said:

“Words cannot describe the pain I’m in, but I’m glad my dad is at peace. You were an amazing man and anyone who ever came across you knew that. I’m going to miss you so much. You died doing what you loved most, you died a hero. I love you daddy. See you soon. #bluelivesmatter”

Officer Chavez and his partner officer Garza were killed while answering a domestic disturbance call Saturday afternoon.

During a press conference, McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez said:

“The officers were shot by a suspect as they approached the door of a home. The officers never had a chance to suspect a deadly assault on them, much less death, at that moment in time.”

He continued:

“These are difficult moments. The officers came here to maintain peace. Instead, they were taken down by gunfire.”

As Savannah, Chavez’s daughter said, her father is a hero. It is disheartening, disturbing, and unimaginable that she received the heartless and soul-less comments that she did. Below are just a few of the horrible things people tweeted in response to her tweet, and some responses to the hurful ignorance.

Savannah’s cousin wrote on Twitter:

“For literally ANYONE that is giving MY cousin sh*t for grieving her FATHER, can literally go to f*cking hell. This man was the most loving and caring person anyone could ever meet! It’s pathetic how people can be so unsympathetic to a girl that is trying to commemorate her father.”

Another person defended Savannah by saying:

“She never said it in response to Black Lives Matter. She said it to honor one man. Her dad. Show some f*cking compassion.”

And again from another person:

“What is wrong with people…sorry for your loss sweetheart. Thank you for your dad’s service, may he rest in peace.”

Due to the original tweet being removed, the many other hundreds of comments, even the kind-hearted ones from normal people, can no longer be viewed on Twitter.
