Natalie Corona, Davis Police Officer, Victim of the War On Cops

49755971_2002732186429864_5411031766389489664_n

Some cop hating asshole murdered Officer Natalie Corona of the Davis, CA Police Department last night, for absolutely no reason other than he hated cops.

The war on cops continues.

According to a friend who was there assisting Davis PD through the night, the piece of shit murderer who I will not name, ambushed Officer Natalie Corona while she was working a car crash. He rode up on his bicycle and shot her. I am told he dumped two whole magazines at her. Then he pedaled his piece of shit ass home.

A short while later when the cops showed up to deal with him, he continued his fucking cowardly behavior and offed himself.

Rot in Hell for all eternity you cowardly mother fucker!

I did not share this on social media last night because I could not bring myself to type this. I went to bed to let my feelings temper, but sleep was elusive as my mind would not stop, and my anger and sorrow only grew.  This incident happened in Davis, CA, an ultra-liberal town located just west of Sacramento. During my college years, my friends and I spent more than a few nights in Davis at a bar called The Graduate. I know the town fairly well.

Davis, from a law enforcement point of view, is a pretty safe little town.  Natalie is only the second officer from the department to be killed in the line of duty, and the last one was killed in 1959.

Officer Natalie Cordova was only 22 years old. She was just a kid. She went through Sac PD’s academy, from where she just graduated last year.

She had only been a cop since August 2nd when her father pinned her badge on her. She was barely out of FTO training, by only 2 weeks. She was serving her community. And for that, she was senselessly murdered.

The picture of her that is sticking with me is the one of her in the blue dress holding the thin blue line flag.  She took that photo two years before she became a cop.  This is what she said when she shared that image on social media:

I would like this photograph to serve as my gratitude for all those law enforcement men and women who have served, who are currently serving, and those who have died in the line of duty protecting our liberties in this great country. #LawEnforcement#Blueline#Thankyou#Lausphotography

She was a beautiful young woman with her entire life ahead of her, all snuffed out because of what she was wearing, her uniform.  Her loss is senseless and tragic.

Her father, Merced Corona, served 26 years as a deputy with the Colusa County Sheriff’s Department.  Only five months ago, he proudly pinned her badge on her when she was sworn in.  Now, sadly, for no reason, in a week or so, he will be burying her.

No parent should ever have to bury their kid, especially one murdered for no other reason than the profession she chose.

Natalie-Corona

Natalie was only a few years older than my oldest kid.  Her father was a deputy and served only a few years longer than I did.  More than one of my sons has at one point or another expressed interest in being a cop.  I cannot help but put myself in Merced Corona’s shoes.  I cannot imagine what he is going through right now.

My sincere condolences to all who knew Natalie.   My thoughts and prayers go out to Natalie’s family and friends.  And when I say family, I mean not only those related by blood, but also the members of her blue family.  I did not know Natalie, but she was my sister.

Fascistbook Can’t Help But Fascist

The fascists at Facebook just cannot help themselves.  Over the last few days, news has reached the national level, once again, about their lopsided enforcement of non-violations of their community standards.  Specifically about them removing posts and banning people who are sharing images that show the distinct difference between Corporal Ronil Singh, a legal immigrant who achieved his American Dream of becoming a cop, and the illegal alien criminal gang member who murdered him.

Facebook reversed their decisions on all of the previous incidents that I know of, but now they are apparently going after other people for the very same image, an image they have already, repeatedly said does NOT violate their policies.  Just last night, New Years Eve, they deleted a post from the page Conservative Cops and they banned the user who posted it.

49521158_10215597634426984_6199438198288941056_n

This just goes to show how deeply ingrained it is in the people who moderate Facebook that if they don’t like something, they can just consider it “hate speech” and remove it.  What should I expect from a company run by a bunch of millennial snowflakes?  If these dipshits cannot moderate a social media platform and follow its own rules, what does the future hold when they get put in positions of power in the government?  Honestly, that prospect scares the hell out of me.


UPDATE:  In further news, it would appear now that the fascists at Facebook are removing posts sharing this very article, about them removing posts.  The page mentioned in the removed post pictured above, Enough is Enough, shared this article this morning.  There are only two administrators of that page currently, and neither of them removed the post, but it is no longer there.  It also appears that Facebook is doing this in shadow mode as neither of the administrators nor the page itself were notified the post was being removed.

Excellent way to disprove the claims that you are silencing people, by further silencing them…

And here I thought conservatives were the Nazis…

 

Fascistbook Strikes Again

Cpl. Singh with his family mere hours before he was murdered.
Cpl. Singh with his family mere hours before he was murdered.

On Christmas night, about five hours after taking photos with his wife and infant son, Corporal Ronil Singh of the Newman, CA Police Department was shot and killed while making a vehicle stop on a suspected drunk driver, who happened to be an illegal immigrant.  Unless you live under a rock, none of that is news to you.

It will also come as no surprise to anyone who has been paying even the slimmest sliver of attention over the last few years, but Facebook management is extremely left biased, despite all their claims to the contrary.  They are also very anti-law enforcement.  I know, shocking…

I am a member of a group of people who all administer Facebook pages that are pro-law enforcement.  Some are run by cops, some are former cops, some are spouses of cops and others are just LE supporters.  We are all pretty accustomed to the one sided censorship from the fascists who run Facebook, so much so that most of us have second and third FB accounts we use to administrate our pages when we get banned by FB in their efforts to silence us.  It just goes with the territory.  We are essentially operating behind enemy lines on that platform.

Well, today one of the members of that group, a man that administrates the very large pro-LE page Enough Is Enough, was banned and his post was deleted because it was determined to be “hate speech.”  What, you ask, was the horrible crime that he committed?

Well he dared share the following image with the following text accompanying it:

“Purely heartbreaking and sickening.”

02

The two images that follow are the messages that he received from Fascistbook when they silenced him.

Now, I am sitting here scratching my head trying to find anything hateful about what he said, or what in this image is hateful.  Can someone help me out there, anyone?

The facts are the facts.  Corporal Ronil Singh was born in Fiji, legally immigrated to the United States, worked his butt off to accomplish his goals, and became a cop where he protected and served the community he lived in.  Alternately factual, the piece of shit that murdered Corpral Singh (who I will not name) was an illegal immigrant, with multiple prior arrests for drunk driving, and was a self admitted sureno gang member.  He was in California due to the ridiculous “sanctuary state” laws enacted by leftist politicians.  He was stopped for drunk driving by Corporal Singh and rather than go to jail yet again, he chose to murder Corporal Singh.

The differences between the two men could not be more stark.

One man’s life had honor and value.  The other had neither.

Corporal Singh is not remotely the first cop to be killed by a man here illegally due to liberal policies.  Sadly, he won’t be the last either.

But to the fascists at Facebook, facts are hate speech, which is why they continually silence those they politically disagree with.

Screw leftists and their censorship!

F**K Facebook!


 

UPDATE:  As of 10:30 PM last night (12-29-18), Facebook apparently partially pulled their heads out of their collective asses and admitted that the photo that they deemed to be a violation of their policy against hate speech was in fact NOT a violation of that policy.  They notified the FB user of such, as you can see in the following screen shot of the message he received.

49090709_586344038503410_5491282233882836992_n

One would think that was the end of the story, but it is not, because Facebook…

As you can see above, they clearly admitted they were wrong, BUT the deleted post was never reinstated on their page AND the user who posted it still is banned for the remainder of his 30 day ban.  Yes, you read that right.  Even though Facebook now admits he did nothing wrong, he is still being blocked from using the service.

That is like, “Hey, sorry you were falsely convicted of murder, our bad.  But yeah, you are still going to have to serve out that prison sentence though.  Thanks for pointing out our error.  Have a nice day.”

So I say again, screw leftists and their censorship!

F**K Facebook!

Yes, Tasers ARE “Less Lethal” & Shaun King is a Moron

KingTasers

In digging through Google this morning, looking to see if the autopsy report for Chinedu Okobi, the brother of the Facebook executive who is on the cop hating warparth, had been released yet, I stumbled upon a piece written by our favorite white guy who pretends he is black, Shaun King.  The title of the piece is “My Morehouse Brother Chinedu Okobi Died After Being Electrocuted by Police. Tasers Are Not ‘Less Lethal’ Weapons.”

Holy crap!  How is it actually possible for someone who is college educated to be this stupid?

Hey Shaun, dipshit, the term is “less lethal,” not “non-lethal.”

LESS, as in not always, not necessarily, not designed to…

Here, maybe this will help.  According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary:

LESS – adjective
1 : constituting a more limited number or amount
– less than three
– less than half done

2 : of lower rank, degree, or importance
– no less a person than the president himself

3a : of reduced size, extent, or degree
b : more limited in quantity
– in less time

To put that in context, Tasers and other electronic control devices are designated “less lethal” because they are 1) not designed to kill and 2) in normal conditions, do not kill.  This phrase, “less lethal,” is specifically chosen because it differentiates Tasers and other “less lethal” devices from lethal weapons, such as firearms.  Items such as a beanbag shotgun are also designated “less lethal,” but that does not mean they cannot kill you, it just means they are not designed or intended to cause death.

Now, for Shaun, and for Ebele Okobi (the Facebook exec), and all the others out there who are slow on the up take, Tasers are not the cause of death.  In almost all instances where someone died after being Tasered, the cause of death was a heart attack, which is what happened to Chinedu Okobi.   The reason they are suffering a heart attack is from extreme physical exertion, usually a pre-existing heart condition, and more often than not, illicit drugs on board.  That extreme physical exertion, that is the part where they are fighting the cops, which is what causes them to get Tased.

Coincidentally enough, many other people suffer heart attacks during extreme physical exertion, even world class runners have been known to have heart attacks while exercising.  But I digress…

Back before we had Tasers, you know how cops handled someone who was violently resisting arrest?  They beat them into submission, with batons, fists, and boots, and whatever else, because we had no other way to stop them.  You know what used to happen a lot more back before we had Tasers?  People died from heart attacks while being beaten by the cops while they violently resisted arrest.  You know what happens far less now?  I’ll give you one guess…

So let us examine this specific case since King seems so happy to lay all the blame on the “racist white cops” and their “police violence.”  As King so accurately points out, while unnecessarily drawing out his Okobi’s race, “He was a big Black man, a dark-skinned Nigerian who was 6 feet, 3 inches tall and weighed 330 pounds.”

He was a big dude, a very big dude.  What King does not tell you, intentionally, is that the first officer to contact Okobi was attacked by him and called for cover.  That officer was later treated at the hospital for his injuries.  Five cops struggled with Okobi trying to get him in custody, but were unable to get him to comply until they used a Taser.

Of course, King tries to draw a correlation between deploying a Taser and shooting him with a gun, because theatrics sell and that is what King does.  “Let me phrase that another way: Chinedu was still shot, but by guns that electrocute people to death instead of tearing apart their flesh and organs with bullets.”

King rambles on for a few paragraphs blaming everyone but the violently resisting guy, and then he drops this pile a steaming horse hockey:

“That such dangerous shocks would be administered to people with mental illnesses is especially upsetting. Every single day in this country, hundreds of thousands of nurses treat adults and children who are living with mental illness.  Those patients are regularly in crisis, and nurses consistently face them down without ever having to electrocute them into submission.”

So, let me get this straight, just because a guy has mental illness, that means he is not a danger?  A 6’3” 330 pound guy, who happens to be mentally unstable, is not a threat?  Am I getting that right Shaun?  Oh yes, by all means, draw a comparison to hospitals.  Fine, we can go there, seeing as my wife is a nurse and I have spent quite a bit of time sitting in an ER while on duty with arrestees.  You know what they have in hospitals, you freaking idiot, they have sedatives that they administer to violent patients.  You know what else I have seen done in the ER was the staff calling the cops for violent patients who have assaulted staff, and the patient then got Tased by the cops in order to get the patient back under control, strapped down onto the bed, so that they could be SEDATED.

King is an idiot, and he draws comparisons that are not remotely comparable, all the while blaming it on skin color.

You know what King does not address is just how many people were saved by the use of a Taser.  “What the hell is this guy talking about?” you are asking yourself.  Think of all the people who were armed, and instead of shooting them with a firearm, the cops managed to use a Taser to get them to drop their weapon or stun them until they could be subdued.

TaserX26

In my career, I personally have Tased three men who all would have been shot had we not had a Taser.  One was a suicidal guy standing in the middle of a cul-de-sac holding a handgun.  With plenty of lethal cover, I approached him from the side until I was in range and deployed the Taser, causing him to drop the handgun.  He went to the hospital and lived to see another day.

On another occasion, a crazy guy in a care home lit the apartment on fire and armed himself with a butcher knife.  All of the staff and the other patients fled, but the crazy guy remained inside, and the fire department refused to enter to fight the fire because there was a crazy guy armed with a knife.  So two of my partners and I went to the apartment, kicked open the door and there he was, standing 20′ inside the smoke filled, burning apartment holding the 10” butcher knife.  I deployed the Taser, he went to the floor, we got the knife away, dragged him out alive and fire saved the building.

And on the last occasion, which happened to be caught on dashcam, a suicidal retired firefighter with terminal cancer, was sitting on his front porch, facing sideways to the house, holding a handgun.  He was refusing to drop the weapon and would not comply with any directions.  He wanted us to kill him, he was hoping for suicide by cop, and it was starting to look like we were going to oblige him.  I told the deputy who was calling out the commands (he is a Lieutenant now…) that I was going to circle around, come up behind the guy and Tase him, which I did.  As I hit him with the Taser, he dropped the gun, rolled forward out of the chair, and my partners rushed forward and detained him.  He left that situation alive, but eventually the cancer got him.

In all three of those instances, people’s lives were saved, and a cop did not have to live with the aftermath of taking someone’s life, because we had a Taser.  And that is just the experiences of one cop in one jurisdiction.  Imagine what those stats are like nationwide.

So, go ahead, scream, clamor, demand that cops stop using Tasers.  When cops start killing more people because you took away one of our more effective LESS LETHAL options, I’ll be here to say I told you so.

The Cancer We Face, And Why We Continue

More from the anonymous Sacramento Deputy who has written a few things here in the past.

10406660_10203877637131488_9093543745305266341_n

I’ve been a cop for 22 years this month.  I remember pretty vividly my academy days, and how I dreamt of one day being a cop.  I remember jail training very clearly, as I also remember the several years I spent working there.  I remember patrol training, and I remember my first day as a finalized, brand new patrol cop, September 11, 2001.

I remember the men and women I have worked with over the years.  I remember the feelings I have had toward them, the brotherhood, the family.  I even remember working with a few people that I did not like, in fact there were a couple at one point or another that I despised.  But if they called for help, no matter who they were, no matter if I liked them or not, without question, doubt or hesitation, I went, as did everyone else, because that is what we do.

I remember the very first funeral I attended for a fallen deputy from my department.  I remember listening to her teenage daughter talking about her mom, and how she was going to miss her.  I remember sitting there in that church, crying, in my dress uniform, wondering how the daughter managed to stay as composed as she was, while I sat there trying to hide the tears on my cheeks.

I remember every single “officer down” call I was ever on, even those from other local agencies.

I remember that gut wrenching feeling you get when you hear those dreaded words on the radio, “shots fired, officer down!”  I remember wondering why in the hell my car would not go any faster.

In fact, I blew up two different cars responding to officers who were shot.  Both cars suffered a crack in the intake manifold.  How in the hell do you crack an intake manifold?  I have no idea, but I’ve done it, twice.  One of those cops survived, the other did not, leaving behind his three children.

I remember sitting at home with my eldest son, who was barely 3 at the time, when I got a call from a close friend and coworker telling me that two of my coworkers were dead and another was in a coma.  I remember the helpless, useless feeling that day.  I remember sitting on the couch, hugging my son and crying while watching the news coverage.  I remember being angry at God for what happened, even though I know it was not his fault.

Over the next several years, I would lose more coworkers to both accidents and murders.  And each one took a chunk of me with them.

I again got to experience that same helpless, useless feeling four years ago as I listened to the radio from home as my coworkers hunted a man who had just murdered another coworker.  As I listened, the same scumbag murdered a deputy from a neighboring department while he fled from mine.  I listened, unable to do anything, wishing I could be there to help, needing to be there to help, but stuck.

Just barely three years after that, as I got into the car leaving lunch, I heard those dreaded words on the radio, “officers down, multiple officers with gunshot wounds.”  My partner and I drove to the scene and while I was of little actual help, being there with my family in blue, made that scene a little easier to handle, until I learned that the man most seriously wounded was a man I went to the academy with, and he had just died.

As a man, as a cop, I was always under the impression that I am not supposed to cry.  As a human, I am a big bowl of mush and have always been on the emotional side.  So now, I’m doing what I can to choke back the tears.  I need to stay busy, give me something to do.  The tears can wait until I get home, and they did, thankfully.

I can remember just about every service from every cop funeral I have been to.  And to this day, thinking about them makes me emotional.

They add up.  The grief doesn’t go away.  It is cumulative.  The hole continues to grow, like a malignant cancer.

Just when you think your soul is starting to mend, another cop gets killed.  The cancer comes out of remission and hits you full force.  The pain is so strong, it feels like not a day has gone by since the last one.

Here I am, barely one year since I buried my academy classmate, and I am polishing up my badge and leather gear, making sure my Class A uniform is clean and pressed, finding my hat that only gets worn for funerals, so I can go bury yet another coworker.

In the academy, they told us to always take care of number one, and you are number one.  They told us to exercise, eat right, and live healthy, that way we would make it through our career in good physical condition so we could enjoy the retirement we earned.  However, little was done to prepare us for the constant emotional drain, or the loss of your friend and coworker, your family member.  I mean, in reality, how do you prepare someone for that?  Especially when it happens with such frequency.

A friend of mine whom I’ve come to know only recently wrote this piece just before he retired one year ago.  In it, he talks about all the cops that were killed during his career.  It is sobering, and sad.  During his 29 year career, 4,122 cops died in the line of duty.

4,122!

That is too many.

I don’t know how I am going to make it through this funeral coming up, but I will.  We will.  I owe it to my blue family to be there, and not just for the fallen, but for all of those who must carry on.  We need each other to lean on, for support and strength, and for understanding.

It reminds me of a line from the movie Blackhawk Down.  “When I go home, people ask me, ‘Hey Hoot, why do you do it, man? Why? You some kind of war junkie?’  I won’t say a goddamn word. Why? They won’t understand. They won’t understand why we do it. They won’t understand it’s about the men next to you… and that’s it. That’s all it is.”

Society doesn’t understand cops.  Some fear us, some resent us, some hate us, and still there are some who love us, but none of them understands us.  Hell, for many of us, our own families don’t understand us.  The only people who truly understand cops, are cops.  We are here for each other, always.  We find strength in each other.  And we will once again find the strength to bury our fallen brother, knowing that as we bury him, we bury a little bit of ourselves.  After that, we will carry on, watching each other’s backs, supporting each other, understanding each other, being there for each other, because if we don’t, who will?

We also know that we will sometime in the future, hopefully not soon, but eventually, be burying yet another member of our blue family, and another.

A couple days ago, I was ready to throw in the towel and walk away.  I was hurt and angry.  A coworker of mine, a friend from my academy days, reached out to me, knowing I was hurting, and sent me something that really hit home.  With his permission, I am going to share his words here, and end this post with his words to me.  For those others who might be wavering like I was, this may help.

“I wanted to say something encouraging, but words are failing right now. The constant drum beat of our fallen brothers and sisters is echoing in my heart tonight and it HURTS!

Like you, I’ve shed tears for a kid I didn’t know, but we do know him, don’t we, even if we’ve never met because we are him, just further along the trail.

I cling to the belief that what we do is a noble calling, that we truly stand between that animal and citizens who are just trying to live their lives. That, along with my faith in Christ, is what sustains me.

I got home today and hugged my wife, and knowing that there is a family tonight which is shattered…and I cried for them, I cried for those in our blue family who knew Mark and are broken, I cried selfish tears because, I too am exhausted by the toll the last 22 years have taken.

And tomorrow I will strap on my gun and badge, I will do my duty and be thankful that I serve alongside heroes known and unknown. Be well, my friend. We are in this together, and we will survive and do everything we can as we train our fellow officers so that this never happens again…yet knowing it will.

We shoulder that burden because it is WORTH IT, even on days like today when the load is oh so heavy.”

Yet Another Murdered Coworker – I Think I’m Done

The following was written by the same Sacramento Sheriff’s Deputy who wrote the post about Bob French’s murder.


Why in the hell is my cell phone blowing up with text messages?

Shit, this many texts in this short a time, this can’t be good…

FUCK!!!!  Gawd dammit, not again!!!!  How in the hell is this possible?

Another coworker murdered while doing his job!

Just 18 days ago was the one year anniversary of Bob’s murder, and now, again, here I sit listening to the radio traffic from the scene of the murder of yet another coworker, while wearing a memorial T-shirt commemorating the loss of two other coworkers.

I sit here feeling helpless, useless, hopeless, occupied by my own depressing thoughts and memories, of the losses of so many other coworkers.  Some I knew well, others I knew not at all.

Oh, how I long to be at the scene, to be involved in making this thing right in some small way.  Because if I was there, busy, doing something, anything, I would not be sitting here, thinking about, remembering all the other times I have felt this indescribable, inexplicable feeling of loss.

This time, I did not even know the man.  Despite that, despite not knowing him, he was my brother.  He wore the same uniform as me, the same badge, swore the same oath to protect the same city as me.

I have since learned from coworkers who knew Mark Stasyuk that he was well liked, a hard worker, young, early in his career, new to patrol, and very sadly, just recently married.  This is ripping my freaking heart out!

maxresdefault

Most people who are not in this line of work would assume that not knowing the man would make this easier.  They would be wrong.  Honestly, it makes very little difference.

Knowing the officer killed is only a small part of the loss we feel.  I cannot help but think about his partner and what she is going through right now.  Even though they were both shot, she performed CPR on her mortally wounded partner.  His poor family, who still does not even know, will soon receive the most devastating news a young wife could ever imagine receiving.

So here I sit, at home, listening to the radio, with a big drink, unsuccessfully trying to take the edge off, thinking about all of the other coworkers I have buried during my career.  Cops I know from other agencies, some from other states even, doing what we all do when something like this happens, offering sincere condolences and offers to help in whatever manner they can.  But in reality, there is nothing they can do.  They can’t turn back time, they can’t bring the officer back, and as the days pass, most of us will process this loss in our own ways and we will be okay.

My biggest worry is his partner.  I know her only slightly.  She struck me as a very squared away young cop, the type who is going to second guess the holy hell out of herself.  Nothing we can say will stop her from doing that, and none of the hypothetical scenarios she will run through in her head will change what happened.

I read the call they responded to.  It is a call our agency goes to a dozen times a day.  It was a call I have handled by myself, solo, more than once.

But it wasn’t.  Because even though all the calls are similar, they are never exactly the same.  In this case, the bad guy had a gun and he chose to do bad guy shit, and he shot both of the cops who were sent to deal with his dumb ass.

Even though I read the call, I did not look at any of the suspect information.  I only know that the suspect was male, and that he is in custody.

I will however take a wild ass guess about some things we are likely to learn about the suspect.  He will have prior arrests, probably lots of them.  Many will be for less serious crimes, like trespassing or public intoxication, but then there will be others, crimes that used to be considered serious crimes, crimes that used to be felonies.  I suspect we will find weapons charges, possibly even gun charges, and likely there will be assault charges.  Probably even some convictions, even recent convictions.

His laundry list of charges (or those I suspect we will learn about), in any other SANE state would have had him currently residing in a government run, full service board and care home (prison).  But here in California, where our insane liberal lawmakers and most of the Democrat party say it is mean to punish convicts for their crimes, so we just release them, because that is the “humanitarian” thing to do…

So, you ask, why do I guess we might hear all that about the suspect?  Because that is what we always find out.  History tells me those things.  Hell, out of the last 15 cops shot and killed in California, that is the background of at least half of their murderers.

Add to that, current legislation that is being pushed by liberal politicians (Kevin McCarty and Shirley Weber) who want to make it even more difficult for cops to protect themselves in deadly force situations, because to them, cops are the bad guys.

The same liberal politicians who are responsible for the legislation that lead to Bob’s murder.

So here I sit, seriously considering walking in tomorrow and pulling the plug.

I’ve had it.

Fuck this state!

The people running this state value their elected positions, and the votes that keep them there, more than they do the citizens they represent or the cops who keep them all safe.

I’ve given this state enough of me.  I’ve given it my best, for a long time, and I nearly have given it my life, on more than one occasion.

During my career, ten of my coworkers have given their lives for this county.

Of those ten, six were murdered.

And that is JUST my agency, during my career.

Yes, I realize there are many, many folks out there who support us.  We see them after every single incident like this.  We see their thin blue line flags and stickers.  We know we have a lot of support.

But sadly, those who support us are outnumbered by those who vote for the politicians responsible for the legislation that is killing us.

I don’t know if I can continue doing this.

I’m sure I am not alone.

Rest in peace, Mark.

Thank you for your service.

Hopefully, for society’s sake, someone will have the watch from here.

Inevitable Result of the War On Cops: An Innocent Life Lost

Congratulations to all the anti-cop protesters out there, this woman’s death is the direct result of your actions!

First, before I go any further, I feel horrible for the family and friends of Elizabeth Tollison, the innocent woman who was killed.  I offer my sincere condolences for your loss. My comments that will follow are not remotely meant to belittle her loss, but rather to address what caused it.

Elizabeth Tollison died because, thanks to all the violent anti-cop protests across the nation over the last 4+ years, cops are now afraid to do their jobs. Had this incident occurred 6 years ago, that suspect never would have gotten close enough to that poor old lady to injure her, let alone have her become a hostage. Those cops would have dropped him before he could get that close, and rightfully so, because when you don’t, this is exactly what happens.

Here we have a “brown skinned” man, clearly armed, with a violent history, on parole, who cops were called on because he was violent and attacked his girlfriend, and several white cops who, arguably rightfully so, don’t want to shoot him lest they become the next face of the rallying cry against law enforcement. After all, “he only had a knife…”

We have been saying this was going to happen.

We have watched proactive cop work practically cease.

This is just another example of the Ferguson Effect.

Shaun King Has Gone Too Far

I’m pretty sure most of the people who follow this page do not follow Shaun King, or the guy whose nickname I love, Talcum X. If you don’t know who Shaun is, he is a Black Lives Matter organizer who gained fame during the Ferguson riots. Shaun is a white guy who, like Rachel Dolezal, pretends to be black. Shaun has somehow become a regular contributor to the NY Daily News among other places, and he has 1.5 million followers on Facebook and Twitter.

Shaun hates cops and constantly stirs both anti-cop and racial tensions.

Shaun is a boil on the ass of society, yet he has a large public voice and the liberals seem to love him.

Yesterday, King made a Facebook post (he has since deleted the post, but you can see a screen shot of the entire post at the bottom of this) regarding an incident that took place early in the morning yesterday in Texas. He got his information via third and fourth parties, but since it was derogatory of cops, he took this fairytale as gospel. Not only did he take it as gospel, but he put this total hearsay in his Facebook post as if it were factual, like he actually witnessed it and knows for a fact that it all occurred.

The crux of matter is a Texas State Trooper made a vehicle stop on a suspected drunk driver. The trooper arrested the driver and took her to jail.

And in the most shocking of news, the person who was arrested claims they did not commit the crime… Gasp!

According to King’s post, the Texas cop not only arrested this attractive young lady only because he did not like her attitude, but before transporting her to the jail, he sexually assaulted her.

Those are some pretty serious allegations.

Now, I am not saying that could never happen, but anyone who pays attention knows that Texas Department of Public Safety has dash cams in their cars. Hell, King should know this since one of the cases he is always harping about, Sandra Bland, was a traffic stop by Texas DPS and the whole incident was captured on dash cam. Knowing that there is going to be dash cam footage, a remotely semi-intelligent person might wait for the video before making such definitive statements, including claims of severe criminal conduct, but good old Talcum X is not that smart. Neither are his followers, who have begun threatening to kill the officer and his family.

The sheer volume of idiots who take the crap King spews as gospel is downright scary.

Due to the severity of the allegations, and the instant public uproar, the Texas DPS not only reviewed the dash cam footage of the stop, but they released a public statement saying that nothing on the video remotely corroborates the claims.

In other words, the allegations are total bullshit.

Yet, knowing that the Texas DPS has reviewed the video and says none of this is true, King has not done anything to try and lower the tensions.  He has not updated his post, amended it, edited it, nothing.  He has made zero effort to calm the crowd that he has personally gotten all riled up.  If you ask me, not only based on his original post, but based on his lack of actions since the Texas DPS released their public statement, King’s actions seem to fit the criteria of inciting a riot.  Perhaps it is time that cop hating race pimp face some legal consequences for his despicable behavior.  If nothing else, he needs to be sued for libel.

My buddy Donut Operator put together a nice video covering this whole mess and he came to much the same conclusions that I have.  In fairness, he did his video last night while I lazily laid on the couch watching a movie with my family.


 

Seeing as King has deleted his original Facebook post, and is trying to pretend it never happened, here it is.

US News Media – Unable to NOT Bash Law Enforcement

MediaVsCops

Yesterday, a monster in human skin, a man known as the East Area Rapist or Golden State Killer, or several other names, was arrested after more than 40 years of investigations done by hundreds, if not thousands of cops throughout the state of California and across the nation. Lots of those cops have spent their entire careers working aspects of this case, many of them on their own time.  The number hours of invested in this case is astronomical.

Yesterday, some of the agencies involved held a press conference to share some of the information with the news media.  The suspect is now 72 years old.  Way back in the 1970’s, he was employed as a cop for two different agencies for a total of about 7 years.  His last agency was the police department of Auburn, CA, and that was his last agency because he was fired from his job for stealing.  He was a dirty cop who got fired.  The good cops did the right thing and got rid of the trash.

Here we are, more than 40 years later, and the news agencies are writing headlines that call him an “ex-cop.”

You know what you never hear?  “Ex-plumber arrested for…” or “ex-carpenter” or ex anything else.  But god forbid the person ever worked in the slightest degree for the shortest amount of time as a cop, because forever thereafter the news will refer to them as an “ex-cop.”  Even if they were fired from their cop job for being dirty.

Christopher Dorner is the perfect example of this.  Dorner was never a full fledged cop.  He was a cop trainee who was released from his employment because he could not pass training.  He was a trainee.  He was not a cop.  He never held a California POST certificate as a law enforcement officer, only as an academy graduate.  Yet what did the headlines read with him?

“Rogue ex-cop Christopher Dorner…” – San Bernardino Sun

“Ex-LAPD cop accused of going on killing spree” – CBS News

“Los Angeles Manhunt: Ex-Cop Christopher Dorner Sought for Killing Spree” – ABC News

The media will do anything they can to disparage law enforcement because it makes them money.  Who cares if this constant bashing erodes the community’s trust in the cops.  Who cares if this constant bashing of the career is making it impossible to fill vacancies.  Who cares if there is even an ounce of truth to the allegations against a cop (Ferguson and many others).  If it gets people to click the link, watch the story or buy the paper, then by all means bash the cops, society be damned.
