TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE!!

AVOIDING THE “BANG”…HOW TO LESSEN A POTENTIAL CRITICAL INCIDENT

OK, WE’VE TALKED ABOUT THINGS THE PUBLIC WANTS THE COPS TO KNOW AND THINGS COPS WANT THE PUBLIC TO KNOW.  MORE TO COME ON THAT LATER.

LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW A COP CAN LESSEN THE CHANCE OF BEING INVOLVED IN A MAJOR INCIDENT.  NOW WE ALL KNOW WHAT A MAJOR INCIDENT IS.  A SHOOTING, BARRICADED SUBJECT OR SOME MAJOR DEMONSTRATION ABOUT THIS OR THAT.  WHAT CAN A COP DO TO HELP PREVENT THIS FROM BECOMING A B.F.D.  PRETTY BASIC STUFF REALLY.  LET’S TAKE A LOOK.

  1.  TREAT PEOPLE WITH RESPECT.  THIS SOUNDS LIKE COMMON SENSE BUT WE HAVE ALL SEEN OFFICERS APPROACH PEOPLE, MOSTLY BADGUYS WITH A TONE AND BODY LANGUAGE THAT PROJECTED ANYTHING BUT RESPECT.  EVEN THE FOLKS ON THE OTHER SIDE LIKE TO BE RESPECTED AND, IN MANY CASES, RETURN THE GESTURE.
  2. USE CONTACT, COVER AND BACKUP. MANY COPS ARE IN A HURRY TO GET THE MATTER RESOLVED.  CALL FOR BACKUP, WAIT AND THEN PROCEED.  HAVING ANOTHER OFFICER AT THE SCENE GIVES YOU THE EDGE.  ADDITIONALLY, ANOTHER SET OF EYES CAN INCREASE SITUATIONAL AWARENESS AND HELP IDENTIFY PROBLEMS OR POTENTIAL PROBLEMS.
  3. LEARN AND LOOK FOR PRE-INDICATORS OF A AGGRESSIVE ACT.  THE CLENCHED FISTS, THE STANCE OF THE VIOLATOR AND A FOCUSED GAZE ARE SEVERAL INDICATORS.  YOU MAY ATTEMPT TO DE-ESCALATE BY TAKING A STEP BACK OR CHANGE THE SUBJECT.
  4. USE THE “ASK, TELL, MAKE” CONCEPT.  ASK THE OFFENDER TO COMPLY, TELL THE OFFENDER TO COMPLY AND, AS A FINAL STEP, MAKE THE PERSON COMPLY.
  5. USE FORCE WITHOUT FEAR OR HESITATION.  EARLIER IN THIS BLOG WE DISCUSSED “DEADLY HESITATION.”  DON’T BECOME A STATISTIC.  USE FORCE WITHIN YOUR DEPARTMENTS GENERAL ORDERS…BUT BE QUICK ABOUT IT.  MANY OF THESE DECISIONS ARE MADE IN A SPLIT SECOND.  COURTS AND SECOND GUESSERS HAVE THE LUXURY OF …OH WELL, NEVER MIND.

TODAY IS A TOUGH TIME TO BE A COP.  KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING, LISTEN TO THOSE WHO HAVE “BEEN THERE, DONE THAT,” AND MOST OF ALL STAY SAFE AND COME HOME TO THE FAMILY WHEN THE WATCH IS DONE.

TALK SOON!!

A FEW THING COPS WANT YOU TO KNOW-PART 2

policemanTHANKS FOR YOUR FEEDBACK.  I APPRECIATE IT AND IT’S GREAT THAT WE CAN ALL LAUGH ABOUT SOME OF THE THINGS WE HAVE COME ACROSS DURING OUR TIME “PROTECTING AND SERVING.”  LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT A FEW MORE THINGS COPS WOULD LIKE YOU TO KNOW.

  1.  I DON’T NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK, MONTH, YEAR.  I NEED TO KNOW WHY I’M HERE RIGHT NOW.
  2. JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE IS FOUND “NOT GUILTY” DOESN’T MEAN THEY ARE “INNOCENT.”
  3. NO, I DO NOT KNOW WHO YOU ARE NOR DO I CARE WHO YOU MAY KNOW.  IF THEY WANT TO HELP YOU OUT OF THIS SITUATION WHY DON’T YOU CALL THEM.  I’M SURE THEY WOULD BE GLAD TO HEAR FROM YOU.
  4. IF YOU ARE KIND, COURTEOUS AND POLITE, I WILL GLADLY RETURN THE FAVOR.
  5. THE BETTER A COP DOES HIS JOB THE MORE LIKELY THEY WILL BE SHOT, INJURED, COMPLAINED ON, SUED OR BE SUBPOENAED ON THEIR DAY OFF.
  6. THERE IS NO MACHINE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH THAT A COP CAN DROP AN EYELASH INTO AND COME UP WITH FINGERPRINTS, MUGSHOT, NAME AND ADDRESS IN TWO MINUTES.  IT’S TV PEOPLE!!
  7. IF YOU GET A WARNING TICKET FROM A MOTORCYCLE  COP OR A TRAFFIC CAR…GO BUY A LOTTERY TICKET.  YOU ALREADY BEAT THE ODDS.
  8. POLICE WORK IS…WRITING REPORTS.

NUMBER 8 IS THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH.  AFTER THE CHASE/APPREHENSION/CRIME(INSERT ANY VIOLATION HERE) THE MAJORITY OF A COPS TIME IS REALLY SPENT WRITING REPORTS.  AFTER A BIG DRUG BUST AND HIGH FIVES THE DETECTIVES RIDE OFF INTO THE SUNSET…NOT!!

THANKS FOR VISITING AND STAY SAFE.  SEE YOU SOON.

A FEW THINGS COPS WOULD LIKE YOU TO KNOW

A LOT OF THINGS THE PUBLIC WANTS COPS TO BE AWARE OF HAVE BEEN DISCUSSED, SLICED AND DICED RECENTLY…OK, IT’S ONLY FAIR THAT COPS WOULD LIKE THE PUBLIC TO KNOW A FEW THINGS.  MAYBE YOU, OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW, HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN A SITUATION LIKE THESE…LET’S TAKE A LOOK:

  1.  YOU ARE RIGHT, I SHOULD BE OUT speed-limit-25DOING SOMETHING ELSE LIKE CATCHING REAL CRIMINALS.  BUT NO, I HAVE TO GIVE YOU A TICKET BECAUSE YOU CAN’T SEE THE BIG SIGN THAT HAS THE SPEED LIMIT IN BIG BOLD NUMBERS
  2. YOU CAN’T TALK YOURSELF OUT OF A TICKET..BUT YOU CAN TALK YOURSELF INTO ONE.
  3. “I DON’T WANT TO BOTHER YOU WHILE YOUR EATING, BUT…” WELL, YOU ARE BOTHERING ME, SO YOU MIGHT AS WELL CONTINUE.
  4. DO NOT USE COPS TO SCARE YOUR KIDS.  “IF YOU DON’T EAT YOUR VEGGIES I’LL HAVE THAT COP PUT YOU IN JAIL”
  5. ON A RELATED NOTE, THAT COP WOULD LOVE TO SAY TO THE KID…”HEY LITTLE BUDDY, LET’S PUT YOUR MOM/DAD IN JAIL AND WE GO TO SIX FLAGS. I DON’T PUT LITTLE KIDS IN JAIL, I PUT GROWN-UPS IN JAIL.  NOW, LET’S GO TO SIX FLAGS.”
  6. CSI AND NCIS AND ALL THOSE OTHER SHOWS ARE NOT REAL.  THEY ARE CALLED “FICTION” FOR A REASON.
  7. EVERYONE WHO ISN’T A COP KNOWS HOW TO DO THE JOB BETTER THAN THE COP HANDLING THE SITUATION.

THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE THINGS COPS WOULD LIKE YOU TO KNOW…WANT MORE?  CHECK IN TOMORROW.  I’LL SEE WHAT I CAN DIG UP.

STAY SAFE!!

DRIVING WHILE GAY???

FOR THE PAST FIFTEEN YEARS POLICE OFFICERS IN MISSOURI HAVE BEEN REQUIRED TO RECORD THE RACE OF THE PEOPLE THEY STOP.  OK, I GUESS THAT IS NECESSARY FOR IDENTIFICATION AND TRACKING PURPOSES.

NOW A COUPLE OF LOONY REPRESENTATIVES WILL INTRODUCE A BILL WHERE POLICE OFFICERS WILL HAVE TO INQUIRE OR DETERMINE, TO THE BEST OF THEIR ABILITY, “THE PERCEIVED RACE, GENDER, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, RELIGION, DISABILITY, ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY OR NATIONAL ORIGIN OF THE INDIVIDUAL STOPPED.”

ISN’T THIS TAKING THINGS A BIT TO FAR…MAKE THAT WAY TO FAR.  THERE IS NO POLICE OFFICER IN THIS COUNTRY THAT WOULD EVEN ATTEMPT TO MAKE SPECULATIVE DETERMINATIONS LIKE THAT.  IN A WORD THIS BILL IS JUST PLAIN STUPID.

IN THE FIRST PLACE IT IS NOBODY’S BUSINESS AND WE, AS A NATION DO NOT NEED TO BE STICKING OUR COLLECTIVE NOSES INTO A TRAFFIC VIOLATORS PERSONAL LIFE AND MAKE, WHAT WOULD ESSENTIALLY BE, ARBITRARY AND OFTEN WRONG DECISIONS OR OBSERVATIONS ABOUT WHETHER A PERSON IS GAY OR NOT.

HOPEFULLY THIS BILL DOESN’T HAVE A CHANCE OF GETTING PASSED, BUT IT LEAVES ONE TO WONDER JUST WHAT IN THE HELL IS GOING ON IN THE COUNTRY WHEN SOMEONE IS ATTEMPTING TO GET LEGISLATION LIKE THIS THROUGH A STATE BODY.  A STATE BODY, I MIGHT ADD CHARGED WITH DOING THE PEOPLES WORK…NOT GOING OFF ON SOME SILLY, LAME-BRAINED IDEA LIKE THIS.

LETS DON’T BOG OUR COPS DOWN WITH MORE STUFF TO DO THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT.

THE CITIZENS OF MISSOURI DESERVE BETTER, MUCH BETTER

MISSOURI-PROPOSED LEGISLATION

missouri-state-flagHERE’S ONE THAT WILL LEAVE YOU SCRATCHING YOUR HEAD.

TWO MISSOURI STATE LEGISLATORS, ALONG WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE MISSOURI BRANCH OF THE ACLU HAVE PROPOSED A NEW LAW.  THE PROPOSED STATUTE WOULD REQUIRE POLICE OFFICERS MAKING A VEHICLE OR PEDESTRIAN STOP TO RETAIN INFORMATION IN ADDITION TO THAT WHAT IS CURRENTLY REQUIRED.  THE NAME, ADDRESS, SEX AND RACE ARE A MUST FOR OFFICERS TO DOCUMENT TODAY.

TOMORROW, OR WHEN THIS PROPOSAL IS PASSED WOULD REQUIRE OFFICERS TO OBTAIN FURTHER, INTRUSIVE INFORMATION.  ADDITIONALLY, NOW GET THIS, OFFICERS WILL BE REQUIRED TO OBTAIN (THIS IS REALLY HARD TO WRITE) PERCEIVED SEXUAL ORIENTATION, PERCEIVED ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY, RELIGION, NATIONAL ORIGIN AND DISABILITIES.

AUTHORS NOTE:  NO POLICE OFFICER IN THIS COUNTRY WILL EVER ASK OR ATTEMPT TO DETERMINE THIS KIND OF STUFF.  FIRST OF ALL, IT’S NOBODY’S BUSINESS.  IN ADDITION EVERY OFFICER WOULD FEEL THAT THIS IS A GROSS AND UNACCEPTABLE OVERREACH OF A GOVERNMENT BODY.

THE BILL, AS WRITTEN WOULD ALLOW INDIVIDUALS (INSERT LAWYERS) TO USE THE DATA TO SEEK RETRIBUTION AND RESTITUTION FROM THE INDIVIDUAL(S) AND POLICE DEPARTMENTS FOUND TO BE IN VIOLATION OF THE DATA THEY COLLECTED….WHAT??

IT SEEMS THAT OUR HARD EARNED TAX DOLLARS ARE PAYING THE SALARIES AND RELATED EXPENSES FOR A BUNCH OF PEA BRAINED REPRESENTATIVES AND SENATORS AT BOTH THE STATE AND NATIONAL LEVEL.

WITH LEGISLATION LIKE THIS ON THE HORIZON ONE MUST WONDER…WHAT IN THE HELL IS NEXT.  YOU CAN BET IT’S GOING TO BE CREATIVE!!

THE BALTIMORE 6-UPDATE

baltimore-inner-harborIN THE LATEST WRINKLE IN THE QUEST BY THE BALTIMORE CITY (STATES) ATTORNEY TO PERSECUTE THE OFFICERS INVOLVED IN THE FREDDY GREY MATTER, THEY HAVE, AND THE JUDGE AGREED, TO HAVE WILLIAM PORTER TESTIFY AGAINST THE NEXT TWO DEFENDANTS.  THE STATE PROFFERED THAT FORMER OFFICER PORTER WOULD BE GRANTED “LIMITED IMMUNITY” IF HE TESTIFIED.  WILLIAM PORTER BEING THE FIRST OF THE SIX TO BE TRIED.

PORTER’S ATTORNEY’S FIRED BACK, STATING THAT THE PROSECUTION, IN OFFICER PORTERS FIRST TRIAL ACCUSED HIM OF LYING TWENTY-THREE TIMES. ONE COULD HONESTLY ASK …IF YOU THOUGHT HE WAS LYING, WHY WOULD YOU WANT HIM TO TESTIFY?

ADDITIONALLY, PORTER’S ATTORNEY REQUESTED AND WAS GRANTED A STAY FROM THE MARYLAND COURT OF APPEALS.  THE FULL COURT WILL PROBABLY HEAR THE ARGUMENTS THIS WEEK.

OFFICER PORTER’S JURY COULD NOT REACH A VERDICT.  HIS SECOND TRIAL IS SCHEDULED FOR LATER THIS YEAR.

UP NEXT, OFFICER CEASAR GOODSON, THE VAN DRIVER CHARGED WITH THE MOST SERIOUS OFFENSE.

IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE HOW THE JURY REACTS TO NEW AND PREVIOUSLY UNDISCLOSED EVIDENCE REGARDING GREY’S INJURIES.  COULD BE DEVASTATING TO THE PROSECUTION AND THE POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT THAT PERPETRATED THIS WITCH HUNT.  LET’S LET TWELVE GOOD CITIZENS OF BALTIMORE DECIDE…AND GET THESE OFFICERS BACK ON THE JOB!!

 

THREE COPS SHOT WITHIN HOURS-WHAT’S GOING ON?

flashing lightsFIRST IT WAS A PHILADELPHIA COP SHOT IN THE EARLY MORNING HOURS. AMBUSHED ACTUALLY.

THEN A BOSTON DRUG COP IS SHOT WHILST IN THE PROCESS OF A CAR STOP AND APPROACHING THE SUSPECT.

YET AGAIN IN SHIVELY, KENTUCKY, A LOUISVILLE SUBURB,  ANOTHER DRUG UNIT, SERVING A SEARCH WARRANT.

THANKFULLY ALL THE OFFICERS INVOLVED APPEAR TO BE IN SURVIVAL MODE AND SHOULD MAKE A FULL RECOVERY.

LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THIS:

THE PHILADELPHIA COP, ON ROUTINE PATROL WAS APPROACHED BY A SUBJECT WHO OPENED FIRE.  THE LATEST COUNT IS THIRTEEN ROUNDS FIRED FROM THE JIHADISTS STOLEN FIREARM.  THIS GUY IS A CAREER CRIMINAL AND SAID HE DID THE DEED BECAUSE HE THOUGHT POLICE WERE NOT ENFORCING HIS INTERPENETRATION OF THE quran.  IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THE WOUNDED OFFICER EXITED HIS POLICE CAR AND FIRED SEVERAL ROUNDS AT THE FLEEING FELON.  STRIKING THE ERRANT TURD IN THE ASS.  GREAT JOB OFFICER.

AT A PRESS CONFERENCE THE MAYOR OF PHILADELPHIA STATED THAT THE PERSON IN CUSTODY IN NO WAY IS REPRESENTATIVE OF islam..BLAH, BLAH.  WHAT??

IN BOSTON, A FEW HOURS LATER, A DRUG COP STOPPED A CAR WITH A KNOWN DRUG DEALER.  THE MOPE ASS GOT OUT, SHOT THE OFFICER IN THE LEG AND TOOK OFF.  THIS THUG WAS SHOT BY OTHER OFFICERS AND TAKEN INTO CUSTODY.  OH YEAH, HE JUST FINISHED A PRISON TERM AND WAS ON PROBATION FOR ANOTHER OFFENSE.

THE POLICE COMMISSIONER, AT A NEWS CONFERENCE, SAID THE GUN USED IN THIS INCIDENT WOULD NOT HAVE COME UNDER THE NEW RULES PROPOSED BY THE PRESIDENT.  WHAT??

AGAIN, ABOUT AN HOUR AFTER THE BOSTON INCIDENT A DRUG COP AND HIS COHORTS WERE SERVING A SEARCH WARRANT.  WHEN THEY GOT TO THE FRONT DOOR THE DOPERS INSIDE FIRED AT THE OFFICERS.  STRIKING ONE IN THE LEG.

ALL THIS IN THE SPAN OF A FEW HOURS.  WOW, COPS NOW HAVE TO CONTEND WITH THE islam NUT JOBS WHO ARE INTENT ON MAKING SOME KIND OF STATEMENT.  UNFORTUNATELY WE CAN ALL LOOK FORWARD TO MORE OF THESE ATTACKS…NOT NECESSARILY ON LAW ENFORCEMENT.

THE OTHER TWO ATTACKS CAN BE GROUNDED IN THE CURRENT CULTURE THAT ENVELOPES OUR COUNTRY.  FUCK THE COPS, THEY CAN’T DO ANYTHING.  WE SEE IT ON FACEBOOK, TV NEWS AND PRINT MEDIA.

BE CAREFUL OUT THERE BROTHERS AND SISTERS THAT WEAR THE BADGE…BE VERY CAREFUL!!

 

OFFICER ROY MITCHELL-ARLINGTON, TX PD

I HAVE A TENDENCY TO ONLY POINT OUT THE LUNACY AND OVERVIEW OF POLICE DEPARTMENTS AND, BY PROXY, THEIR OFFICERS. BY LUNACY AND OVERVIEW I DON’T MEAN TO DISPARAGE ANY OF THE FINE WORK DONE BY OUR NATIONS POLICE OFFICERS ON A DAILY BASIS. IT’S THE MEDIA AND THE POLITICIANS THAT HINDER AND SECOND GUESS OUR FINE OFFICERS.

ON THAT NOTE, I’D LIKE TO RECOGNIZE ONE OF THOSE OFFICERS FOR HIS MANY YEARS OF FAITHFUL AND DEDICATED SERVICE TO THE GOOD CITIZENS OF ARLINGTON, TEXAS.

I’M REFERRING TO OFFICER ROY MITCHELL WHO TURNED SEVENTY (THAT’S RIGHT…SEVENTY) RECENTLY. HE’S BEEN ON PATROL FOR 36 YEARS, AND COUNTING. PRIOR TO JOINING THE RANKS OF THE ARLINGTON P.D. HE SERVED WITH THREE OTHER AGENCIES.RoyMitchell

HE HAS NO PLANS TO RETIRE. IN A RECENT INTERVIEW HE SAID HE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE IN PATROL. NEVER WANTED OR ASKED FOR A DESK JOB, ALTHOUGH ONE COULD ARGUE HE HAS DESERVED THAT RIGHT. ROY SAID AS LONG AS HIS HEALTH IS GOOD AND THE DEPARTMENT WILL ALLOW HIM HE WANTS TO REMAIN A POLICE OFFICER. HOW OFTEN DO WE SEE DEDICATION LIKE THAT?

HE SAYS HE LIKE THE EXCITEMENT OF PATROL. ANY POLICE OFFICER CAN RELATE TO THAT.

ROY LIKES TO TELL OF ALL THE FOOT CHASES HE’S INVOLVED IN…THE PROBLEM IS THAT HE DOSEN’T CATCH THAT MANY ANY MORE.

THAT’S OK ROY. THE DEPARTMENT IS LUCKY TO HAVE AN OFFICER OF YOUR STATURE AND EXPERIENCE. OH, BY THE WAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND CARRY ON SIR!!

STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP AND WEAR YOUR VEST!

DEADLY HESITIATION

police gunAFTER FERGUSON, WE HAVE ALL SEEN OFFICERS NOT USING DEADLY FORCE…EVEN WHEN THE SITUATION JUSTIFIED OR MORE IMPORTANTLY, DEMANDED THE USE OF SUCH FORCE. SOME OFFICERS ARE MORE OFTEN NOT USING THEIR WEAPON(S) FOR FEAR OF BEING LABELED “FASCIST” OR “RACIEST.” SOME ARE HESITANT AND ARE MORE FEARFUL OF BECOMING THE NEXT YOUTUBE SENSATION, OR A LAWSUIT. MANY THINGS RUN THROUGH AN OFFICERS MIND AT A TIME LIKE THIS. WHO CAN BLAME THEM? IN TODAY’S ANTI-COP ATMOSPHERE.

THE PRACTICE OF DEADLY HESITATION HAS BECOME MORE PREVALENT THAT AT ANY TIME. THIS IS GOING TO COST THE LIVES OF OFFICERS IN THE FUTURE.

AN EXAMPLE OF THIS OCCURRED LAST APRIL WHERE AN OHIO POLICE OFFICER BACKPEDALED AWAY FROM A SUBJECT. IT IS INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT THE PERSON IN THE OFFICERS SIGHTS HAD JUST MURDERED HIS GIRLFRIEND. ADDITIONALLY, HE WAS WANTED FOR A HOMICIDE IN KENTUCKY. THE OFFICER STATED THAT HE WANTED TO BE ABSOLUTELY SURE BEFORE HE USED DEADLY FORCE.

BY GIVING UP HIS POSITION BEHIND HIS SQUAD CAR AND FALLING TO THE GROUND HE ENDANGERED, NOT ONLY HIMSELF, BUT THE PUBLIC. HAD THE OFFENDER KILLED HIM AND ESCAPED IN THE POLICE CAR EQUIPPED WITH A SHOTGUN, THE PUBLIC WOULD BE OUTRAGED AND QUESTION WHY THE OFFICER DIDN’T SHOOT. ANYTHING TO GENERATE A GOOD, JUICY STORY ABOUT A COP MAKING A SPLIT-SECOND DECISION. ALL IN ORDER TO SELL PAPERS OR TAKE UP TV TIME.

ANOTHER INCIDENT OCCURRED IN BIRMINGHAM. IN THIS INSTANCE THE OFFICER WAS PISTOL WHIPPED WITH HIS OWN GUN. HE LATER TOLD A REPORTER HE DIDN’T WANT TO BE IN THE MEDIA. WELL, HE WAS IN THE MEDIA ANYWAY…AND MAY VERY WELL HAVE BEEN IN BECAUSE HE WAS IN THE MORGUE. THANKFULLY, THIS WAS NOT THE CASE WITH THESE TWO INCIDENTS.

DEADLY HESITATION..IS IT A PROCEDURE TO FOLLOW IN THE FUTURE…LET’S HOPE NOT.
