LEGISLATION PROPOSED TO MAKE CHARGING COPS EASIER.

THERE IS A MOVEMENT AFOOT IN THE US CONGRESS TO PASS A LAW THAT WOULD MAKE THE CHARGING OF POLICE OFFICERS INVOLVED IN FATAL SHOOTING EASIER.

REP HANK JOHNSON,D-GA, STATED RECENTLY THAT HE IS APPALLED BY THE LACK OF FEDERAL PROSECUTIONS OF POLICE OFFICERS.

A RECENT STUDY REVEALED THAT 96% OF THE CASES INVOLVING POLICE MISCONDUCT IN THE SHOOTING OR WOUNDING OF A SUSPECT WERE NOT PROSECUTED. HUMMM…MAYBE THAT’S BECAUSE THERE IS NO VIOLATION IN THE FIRST PLACE.

JOHNSON’S BILL WOULD WITHHOLD FEDERAL GRANT MONEY IF A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR WAS NOT APPOINTED IN A POLICE SHOOTING CASE. HIS OTHER BILL WOULD MAKE MURDER AND MANSLAUGHTER BY A POLICE OFFICER A FEDERAL CRIME.

APPARENTLY MR. JOHNSON HAS A BIG ASS PROBLEM WITH THE REQUIREMENT THAT A PROSECUTOR MUST SHOW “WILLFUL INTENT” TO CHARGE A POLICE OFFICER.

AS ONE MIGHT EXPECT THE FOP AND, GET THIS, THE ACLU, BOTH FEEL THE BILL IS ANOTHER OVER-REACH OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. LET’S ALL HOPE THIS BILL STAYS BOTTLED UP IN WHATEVER WAY THEY DO THAT KIND OF STUFF. OH, BY THE WAY MR. JOHNSON, HOW ABOUT YOU AND YOUR COLLEAGUES GET OFF YOUR COLLECTIVE BUTTS AND DO SOMETHING TO HELP LAW ENFORCEMENT…NOT AGAINST IT?

STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP AND WEAR YOUR VEST!!

FERGUSON-THE LATEST IN THE CONTINUING SAGA

WELL IT FINALLY HAPPENED. FACED WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF OVERWHELMING DEBT, IF THE CITY FOUGHT THE DOJ SUIT, THE CITY FATHERS DECIDED TO SIGN THE AGREEMENT. PITY. THE PEOPLE DESERVE BETTER, MUCH BETTER.

THE DOJ IN IT’S AMATEURISH AND FLAWED INVESTIGATION OF THE FERGUSON POLICE DEPARTMENT, MANAGED TO BRING FERGUSON TO IT’S KNEES. AND WHY NOT. THE DOJ HAS BATTALIONS OF LAWYERS AND A BOTTOMLESS POT OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS. THE OVERREACH OF THE GOVERNMENT IN THIS CASE IS DEPLORABLE AT BEST.

THE FPD HAS EMBARKED ON A NUMBER OF INITIATIVES TO INCREASE EFFECTIVENESS AND TRANSPARENCY. THE GOAL BEING TO BRING PREMIUM LAW ENFORCEMENT TO A POPULATION IN NEED.

THE CITY OF FERGUSON WILL HAVE TO FORK OVER MILLIONS, IN SCARCE TAX DOLLARS, IN ORDER TO HIRE A “MONITOR” FOR THE BOGUS AGREEMENT. OF COURSE, THE MONITOR WILL HAVE TO BE PROVIDED WITH ADEQUATE SPACE AND A STAFF OF (INSERT YOUR FAVORITE NUMBER HERE) TO FULFILL HIS/HER DUTIES. TAX DOLLARS THAT WILL NO LONGER BE GENERATED BY THE BUSINESSES THAT WERE BURNED AND DESTROYED BY THE “PEACEFUL PROTESTERS. THESE “AGREEMENTS” CAN LAST GENERATIONS. GOD HELP US!!

TO ALL POLICE OFFICERS: STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP AND WEAR YOUR VEST!!

LOOK BACK, MOVE FORWARD

I’VE DONE SOME RESEARCH LATELY. IN 1970 FOUR CHP OFFICERS WERE GUNNED DOWN IN NEWHALL,CA. ALL WERE KILLED IN A LAW ENFORCEMENT ORGANIZATION THAT PLACED PUBLIC RELATIONS ABOVE OFFICER SAFETY.

DURING THE 70’S CHP OFFICERS, LIKE MANY THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY, WERE PUNISHED FOR PERCEIVED TRANSGRESSIONS. ALL SOME SHMO HAD TO DO WAS SAY THEY WERE STOPPED BY AN OFFICER AND HE MADE ME FEEL BAD, STUCK OUT HIS TONGUE, ETC.

THE ADVERSE EFFECT ON LAW ENFORCEMENT CAN BE SEEN TODAY. COMMAND STAFF SET AND ENFORCE POLICY THAT HOLD DOWN EFFECTIVE PREVENTIVE POLICE WORK. LESS CARS ARE BEING STOPPED. PEDESTRIANS ARE NOT BEING QUESTIONED UNDER SUSPICIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES. THE RESULTS CAN BE SEEN IN ANY NEWSPAPER OR TV STATION IN THE COUNTRY. MURDERS AND SERIOUS ASSAULTS ARE ON A ROCKET TRAJECTORY. IF THIS KEEPS UP 2016 WILL, INDEED, BE A BLOODY YEAR.

AS OF THIS WRITING THIRTEEN OFFICERS HAVE BEEN KILLED BY GUNFIRE. THAT’S A 333% RISE OVER LAST YEAR.

LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES WOULD BE WELL ADVISED TO EMBRACE THE CULTURE OF “OFFICER SURVIVAL” AND TRAIN ACCORDINGLY.

THE GHOSTS OF NEWHALL, CA ARE CREEPING BACK INTO THE TRAINING AND DISCIPLINE OF POLICE OFFICERS. WE CAN’T LET THIS HAPPEN.WE MUST NOT ALLOW POLITICS TO TAKE PRIORITY OVER OFFICER SAFETY ISSUES. LAW ENFORCEMENT AND CIVIC LEADERS WOULD BE WISE TO HEED THE NEEDS OF POLICE DEPARTMENTS BEFORE INTRODUCING AND ENFORCING ILL-CONCEIVED CHANGES THAT COULD AND PROBABLY WILL LEAD TO MORE POLICE FUNERALS. STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP AND WEAR YOUR VEST!!

WHY BOTHER

IN MY HOME TOWN OF ST. LOUIS LAST WEEK A COUPLE COPS STOPPED A CAR FOR IMPROPER REGISTRATION. MEANING THE LICENSE PLATE ON THE CAR DID NOT MATCH THE CAR. ANY REASONABLE THINKING PERSON COULD CONCLUDE THAT THIS IS A VALID REASON FOR STOPPING A CAR. GUESS AGAIN.

THE COPS PULLED THE CAR OVER AND DISCOVERED A FAMILY GOING TO CHURCH. TWO SMALL CHILDREN IN THE BACK SEAT.

THE INVESTIGATION FINISHED WITH A SOMEWHAT VALID EXPLANATION. AFTER ALL IT’S SUNDAY AND THE FAMILY IS GOING TO CHURCH. THE OFFICERS ADVISED THE DRIVER TO GET THE LICENSE PLATE ISSUE SQUARED AWAY AND NO TICKET WAS ISSUED…JUST A VERBAL WARNING.

A FEW HOURS LATER THE BLM FOLKS WERE AT POLICE HEADQUARTERS DEMANDING THE HEAD OF THE GOVERNOR, MAYOR, POLICE CHIEF ETC. BECAUSE THE OFFICERS WHO “UNJUSTLY” PULLED THE CAR OVER POINTED THEIR GUNS, NOT AT THE ADULTS BUT AT THE KIDS IN THE BACK.

A QUICK REVIEW OF THE POLICE CARS VIDEO REVEALED THE STOP WAS CONDUCTED IN A CALM AND PROFESSIONAL MANNER. WE SHOULD EXPECT NOTHING LESS.

THE VIDEO, MADE PUBLIC DROVE THE POINT HOME THAT THE OFFICERS DID NOT PULL THEIR GUNS, MUCH LESS POINT THEM AT ANYONE. CHILDREN INCLUDED.

A VALID STOP THAT RESULTED IN A DEBUNKING OF A STUPID PROTEST. CAN YOU IMAGINE THE PRESS THIS WOULD HAVE RECEIVED IF NOT FOR THE IN-CAR CAMERA.

IN TODAY’S HOSTILE CLIMATE…WHY BOTHER!!

PERF-PART 2

CHARLES WEXLER, A PH.D ACADEMIC AND CHIEF SCOTT THOMSON ARE THE TWO GUYS THAT RUN THE “POLICE EXECUTIVE RESEARCH FORUM” THE KEY WORD HERE IS “EXECUTIVE.” YES, THERE ARE NO STREET COPS OR MID LEVEL SUPERVISORS. SO THESE GUYS SIT IN AN IVORY TOWER AND WRITE SILLY OP-ED’S IN THE NY TIMES.

THE LATEST SUGGESTING THAT COPS GO BEYOND THE SUPREME COURT THRESHOLD FOR THE USE OF DEADLY FORCE. THEY WONDER ABOUT THE ADVERSE IMPACT ON A POPULATION THAT VIEWS A CELLPHONE VIDEO OR TWO. THESE GOOFS WANT COPS TO CONSIDER THIS PRIOR TO SHOOTING SOMEONE FLOURISHING A DANGEROUS AND DEADLY WEAPON. PERHAPS ADVANCING ON AN OFFICER OR CIVILIAN. THESE SITUATIONS DEVELOP IN A HEARTBEAT.

THE PIECE IN THE NY TIMES ALSO TALKED ABOUT A PERSON WITH A KNIFE BEING TALKED OUT OF DOING ANYTHING STUPID AND WAS TAKEN INTO CUSTODY. WHERE DID THIS HAPPEN…WHY CAMDEN,NEW JERSEY. OH YEAH, THAT’S THE CITY WHERE THOMSON, THE PERF ADMINISTRATOR, IS THE CHIEF.

I WOULD ASK THIS QUESTION. HOW MANY TIMES A DAY DOES AN OFFICER TALK SOMEONE WITH A KNIFE OR GUN OUT OF DOING SOMETHING FOOLISH. EVERYDAY, NUMEROUS TIMES EVERYDAY. TO FOCUS ON ONE EVENT THAT ALLEGEDLY OCCURRED IN CAMDEN, NJ IS PANDERING TO THE WEAK MINDED PEOPLE WHO THINK EVERY TIME AN OFFICER CONFRONTS A PERSON WITH A KNIFE HE/SHE IS SHOT. NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.

THIS DISINGENUOUS OP-ED SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN AT FACE VALUE. MERELY A RESPONSE TO THE ANTI POLICE CLIMATE CURRENTLY HOVERING OVER OUR COUNTRY. BROUGHT TO YOU THROUGH THE COURTESY OF blm, aclu AND THE MEDIA LOOKING FOR A SENSATIONAL AND SALACIOUS OCCURRENCE WITHOUT GETTING THE FACTS.

COPS WILL SURVIVE. THEY MUST.

STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP AND WEAR YOUR VEST!

USE OF FORCE-CURRENT THINKING

WE ALL KNEW IT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN. THE EGGHEADS AND POLICY WONKS WOULD GET TOGETHER, PROPELLED BY THE CURRENT ANTI-POLICE ATTITUDE, BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE LIKES OF BLM, ACLU AND OTHERS.

THE POLICE EXECUTIVE RESEARCH FORM…KNOWN IN POLICE CIRCLES AS “PERF.” THEY HAVE TAKEN ON THE DAUNTING TASK OF RE-POLICING THE POLICE. THE TOOL IS USE OF FORCE. YOU KNOW, LIKE WHEN A COP IN A BACK ALLEY, BEHIND A CLOSED BUSINESS AT 3:10 AM OR FACING DOWN A PCP AMPED DRUG ABUSER RUNNING DOWN THE STREET.

HOW SHOULD COPS REACT TO A VIOLENTLY RESISTING OR ATTACKING SUBJECT? THE “PERF’ BOYS HAVE IT ALL FIGURED OUT. JUST FOLLOW THESE EASY STEPS AND THE SITUATION WILL BE RECTIFIED IN NOTHING FLAT.

OFFICERS SHOULD GO BEYOND THE CURRENT SUPREME COURT STANDARDS. THAT BEING IF AN OFFICER FELT HE OR A CITIZEN IS IN IMMINENT DANGER OF DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY HE/SHE COULD USE DEADLY FORCE. SOUNDS PRETTY SIMPLE, DOESN’T IT? WELL THE “PERF” BOYS, AFTER SCRATCHING THEIR COLLECTIVE HEADS FOR EIGHTEEN MONTHS HAVE COME UP WITH A SOLUTION. THAT IS FOR OFFICERS TO IMAGINE WHAT THEIR (OFFICERS) ACTION WILL BE PERCEIVED BY THE PUBLIC.

GREAT GUYS, JUST GREAT. I HAVEN’T SEEN THE RESUME’S OF THESE DEEP THINKERS. I’LL DO SOME RESEARCH AND ADDRESS THIS IN ANOTHER BLOG. I’M GOING TO GO OUT ON A LIMB HERE AND SAY THESE ARE A BUNCH OF PH.D’S THAT DON’T HAVE MUCH EXPERIENCE OUTSIDE OF ACADEMIA.

STAY SAFE, WEAR YOUR VEST AND BUCKLE UP!!

DOJ FILES (UN)CIVIL LAWSUIT AGAINST FERGUSON

missouri-state-flagYOU KNEW IT HAD TO HAPPEN. WHEN THE CITY FATHERS OF FERGUSON FINALLY WOKE UP AND REALIZED THAT THE OPPRESSIVE AND OVERREACHING DEMANDS MADE BY THE DOJ WERE GOING TO COST THIS SMALL MUNICIPALITY OVER 3.7 MILLION A YEAR THEY DECIDED TO ATTEMPT TO CHANGE SOME OF THE “BULLET POINTS.”

THE CITY IS CURRENTLY DOING A NUMBER OF THE ITEMS OUTLINED IN THE “AGREEMENT.” THE CITY JUST WANTED TO MAKE IT A LITTLE LESS PAINFUL MONETARILY. KEEP IN MIND FERGUSON IS A TOWN OF ABOUT 20,000 RESIDENTS. AFTER THE MICHAEL BROWN INCIDENT, THE PEACEFUL PROTESTERS BURNED DOWN OR OTHERWISE DESTROYED A NUMBER OF BUSINESSES. REVENUE GENERATING OPERATIONS THAT WILL NEVER REOPEN IN FERGUSON. THIS IS A BIG FINANCIAL BURDEN FOR ANY CITY THIS SIZE TO ADDRESS.

THE MAYOR AND ALDERMEN ATTEMPTED TO NEGOTIATE SEVERAL CHANGES THAT WOULD LESSEN THE FINANCIAL BURDEN. NO DICE, NO DEAL EITHER. THE DOJ STOOD FIRM ON WHAT THEY PERCEIVED AS TRUTH AND JUSTICE. YEAH RIGHT.

THE DOJ IMMEDIATELY FILED SUIT SEEKING TO FORCE THE CITIZENS OF FERGUSON INTO PAYING AN EXORBITANT FEE FOR THE ACTIONS OF SOME OF FERGUSON’S CRIMINAL ELEMENT…NOT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT OR ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES THAT PARTICIPATED IN THE FERGUSON ORDEAL.

BUT THEN THE DOJ HAS UNLIMITED FUNDS AND A HUGE BEVY OF LAWYERS EAGER TO SHRED FERGUSON AND DO AWAY WITH THIS TOWN AND IT’S RICH AND INSPIRING PAST. THE FUTURE THOUGH, NOT SO INSPIRING. MAYBE IT’S TIME TO LET THE CITY WORK OUT IT’S OWN PROBLEMS. THE CITIZENS DESERVE THAT!!

HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THIS ONE??

300-dollars-cashTHE WASHINGTON DC CITY COUNCIL APPROVED ANTI-CRIME LEGISLATION CALLED: THE NEIGHBORHOOD ENGAGEMENT ACHIEVES RESULTS AMENDMENT ACT OF 2016.

THE BILL WOULD “ESTABLISH AN OFFICE TASKED WITH DEVELOPING A PUBLIC HEALTH STRATEGY TO ADDRESS VIOLENCE, A CRIME PREVENTION PROGRAM FOCUSED ON PEOPLE IN NEED OF ASSISTANCE AND ADDITIONAL POLICE TRAINING AND REFORMS.”

UNDER THIS PROPOSAL, “A NEW OFFICE WOULD BE CREATED TO IDENTIFY INDIVIDUALS WHO POSE A HIGH RISK OF PARTICIPATING IN OR BECOMING A VICTIM OF VIOLENT CRIMINAL ACTIVITY.”

THE PLAN SEEKS FUNDING TO COVER STIPENDS FOR ABOUT 50 THUGS…I MEAN INDIVIDUALS A YEAR WHO WOULD BE PAID AND ANNUAL STIPEND OF $9,000 (THAT’S RIGHT 9 GRAND A YEAR) TO FOLLOW A PLAN INVOLVING “LIFE PLANNING, TRAUMA INFORMED THERAPY (WHATEVER THAT IS) AND MENTORSHIP.”

THE BILL WILL GO TO THE FULL COUNCIL IN MARCH, THEN TO THE MAYOR FOR SIGNATURE AND THEN TO CONGRESS FOR FINAL APPROVAL. I’M SURE OUR “GIVE THE FARM AWAY” CONGRESS WILL QUICKLY APPROVE THE BILL…AND THERE WON”T BE A DRY EYE IN THE HOUSE.

I WONDER WHAT THE BOOKING OFFICER WILL HEAR WHEN THE FIRST DEADBEAT IS BEING BOOKED FOR (INSERT YOUR FAVORITE CRIME HERE) AND SAYS…DAMN RIGHT I DID THAT, I CAN’T LIVE ON 9 GRAND A YEAR!!!

THE LUNACY HAS TO STOP. PLEASE WRITE YOUR REPRESENTATIVE AND TELL THEM TO VOTE NO!!!

FERGUSON-DOJ ENTER INTO (DIS)AGREEMENT

Michael Brown, Jr. didn't have to die by Ken Dye
Michael Brown, Jr. didn’t have to die by Ken Dye
ACCORDING TO A NUMBER OF REPORTS, THE CITY OF FERGUSON, UNDER PRESSURE FROM THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, IS ON THE VERGE OF BOWING TO THE WEIGHT FROM THE DOJ AND ENTERING INTO A AGREEMENT.  LET’S TAKE A LOOK.

ONE REPORT SAYS THE DOJ REPORT ON THE “RACIALLY BIASED PRACTICES IN FERGUSON.”  YOU MAY RECALL, THAT DOJ REPORT IN MY LATEST BOOK..”MICHEAL BROWN JR. DIDN’T HAVE TO DIE” WAS SLOPPY IN IT’S INVESTIGATION AND FLAWED IN IT’S CONCLUSION. THE REPORT DRAWS A NUMBER OF IT’S FINDINGS ON “ANECDOTAL” EVIDENCE. EVIDENCE BY THE VERY NATURE OF THE TERM IS UNSUBSTANTIATED. ADDITIONALLY, CERTAIN “ANECDOTAL EVIDENCE” GATHERED BY THE CRACK TEAM INVESTIGATION THIS MATTER, HAD ONLY TO CALL IN A NUMBER OF FERGUSON POLICE OFFICERS TO CONFIRM OR DEBATE THIS EVIDENCE. BUT NO, THAT’S TOO DAMN EASY AND MAY NOT FIT THE AGENDA ON WHICH THIS SILLY ASS REPORT IS TO CONCLUDE.

THE REPORT WILL EMPHASIZE “DEESCALATION AND AVOIDING FORCE.” MAYBE SOMEONE SHOULD HAVE SHARED THIS WITH MICHAEL BROWN JR. ONCE AGAIN, THAT TAKES THE FOCUS OFF THE REAL PROBLEM AND PUTS IT BACK ON THE COPS. IN FERGUSON POLICE OFFICER’S DARREN WILSON’S CASE…DON’T SHOOT SOMEONE WHO’S TRYING TO KILL YOU!

GOD HELP US.
