TV COPS AND THE REAL DEAL

I JUST READ AN ARTICLE IN POLICE ONE THAT ADDRESSES THE THINGS THAT TV COPS DO.  THE REAL DEAL IS JUST THE OPPOSITE.  LET’S TAKE A LOOK.

  1.  TV COPS INVOLVED IN A DEADLY FORCE INCIDENT IMMEDIATELY RETURN TO DUTY.  MANY TI,MES NO REPORT IS FILED.  IN REALITY, THERE ARE MOUNDS OF PAPERWORK AND REVIEWS AND SHRINK VISITS.  THE ONLY THING THAT INVOLVES MORE PAPERWORK…WHEN YOU ARE INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT IN A POLICE CAR.
  2. TV COPS TRANSFER BETWEEN LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES.  I.E. LAPD TO NYPD OR VICE VERSA….AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN.
  3. ROOKIES WILL BE INVOLVED IN A DEADLY FORCE INCIDENT THEIR FIRST DAY OUT….THE COP WHO IS ABOUT TO RETIRE IS SHOT ON HIS LAST DAY.  YEAH RIGHT.
  4. TV COP CAN TELL HIS PARTNER TO “OBTAIN A SEARCH WARRANT.”  NO WAY, THIS IS AN INVOLVED PROCESS.  THE OFFICER VERIFYING THE INFORMATION MUST SIGN THE AFFIDAVIT.  ON TV THIS TAKES ABOUT 20 MINUTES.  HAVING OBTAINED A NUMBER OF SEARCH WARRANTS I CAN SAY THIS TAKES AT LEAST 3-4 HOURS…UNDER THE BEST CIRCUMSTANCES.
  5. EVERY LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY HAS AT LEAST ONE “SAFE HOUSE.”  NEVER HEARD OF ONE.
  6. TV COPS ALWAYS FIND A PARKING SPOT IN FRONT OF THE BUILDING THEY ARE VISITING.  MUST HAVE MISSED THAT CLASS.  PARKING SPACES, ESPECIALLY IN A CITY, ARE A PREMIUM.

THAT’S ALL FOR NOW.  CHECK OUT BLOG TALK RADIO, “BLUE JUSTICE-FUN FRIDAYS,” @ 347-850-8154 11:30-12-30 EST.

STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP AND WEAR YOUR VEST.

KEN

ATTENTION METH AND HEROIN USERS-YOUR DOPE MAY BE INFECTED

THAT’S RIGHT. THE ALERT MEMBERS OF THE GRANITE SHOALS (TX) POLICE DEPARTMENT, NOTICED THAT THE HEROIN AND METH THEY WERE CONFISCATING WAS CONTAMINATED WITH THE EBOLA VIRUS.

THEY ALERTED ALL HEROIN AND METH ABUSERS TO STOP ANY OFFICER OR COME TO THE STATION TO HAVE THE ILLEGAL SUBSTANCE SCREENED WITH A SPECIAL DEVICE. THE DEVICE WOULD DETECT THE PRESENCE OF THE DEADLY DISEASE.

POLICE PLEADED WITH DRUG ABUSERS TO BE SURE TO HAVE THE SUBSTANCE CHECKED BEFORE USE. IT’S A PUBLIC SERVICE ISSUE AND GOES WITH THE PLEDGE TO “SERVE AND PROTECT.”

WHEN I SAW THIS I HAD A CHUCKLE AND MENTALLY COMPLIMENTED THE OFFICER WHO CAME UP WITH THE IDEA. I CERTAINLY DID NOT THINK THAT ANYONE, AND I MEAN ANYONE WOULD FALL FOR THIS.

ONCE AGAIN, THE GOOFS RISE TO THE TOP. A WOMAN PRESENTED HER DUMB ASS AND HER METH TO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND WANTED IT CHECKED TO SEE IF IT HAD THE VIRUS.

I’LL JUST BE DAMNED. THE DOPE WAS FINE…BUT SHE WASN’T. BOOKED FOR POSSESSION OF A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE AND PUBLIC STUPIDITY. HER BOOKING PHOTO SHOWS HER…GET THIS…SMILING.

CHALK ONE UP FOR THE COPS. LETS SEE WHO CAN COME UP WITH ANOTHER FLIM-FLAM TO GET SOME BUBBLE HEAD TO BITE…MAYBE CONVICTED FELONS TO BRING IN THEIR AUTOMATIC WEAPONS FOR A SAFETY CHECK. IT COULD HAPPEN.

PROPS TO THE GSPD. STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP AND WEAR YOUR VEST.

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!!
