Another example of how NOT to park

I know it’s just a commercial, but still, that is a completely nonsensical park job. PD too. I’ve already covered this before in a previous post, so I’m not going to repeat myself.

Body Cam 1, Foul-Mouthed Woman 0

In this week’s Chest Cam Chronicles, a Fairfield, California boy was left sleeping in his car before it was stolen. His parents called police for help. And then they said the police were mean to them while they were generally unhelpful toward the police.

Cops right before they call for medical

I don’t know why but when I saw Santiago’s reaction I just thought of all the calls cop create for us.

(Don’t be offended – I support cops.)

Civil rights activist plays cop

I must compliment civil rights activist Jarrett Maupin for participating in some police scenarios with the Maricopa County (Arizona) Sheriff’s Office and then appearing on air to discuss them.

I’ll just simply link you to the videos and skip the words.

Talk less, do more

One of the most notable developments after the stunning killings of NYPD Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu is the public battle between Mayor Bill de Blasio, among other people, and the law enforcement community. De Blasio, in particular, has been criticized as not saying anything about the more hateful and violent incidents during the weeks-long protests in the wake of the Ferguson and Staten Island incidents.

It did not help matters that de Blasio ran for Mayor on a platform that some see as less than appreciative of the NYPD.

“This is a nightmare of the highest magnitude for everyone,” said Michael Palladino, president of the Detectives’ Endowment Association. Leaders at City Hall, he added, “need to dig down deep in their souls and understand that campaigning to be a leader is easier than being a leader.”

I speak from experience that politicians can SAY all they want about how they support law enforcement and emergency services as a whole, but the only thing that matters is what they DO or NOT DO about all the issues that we care about.

Put your money where your mouth is.

Poll #2: Mistaken identity

Funniest thing I heard #2

“Engine 10, this is a Delta response. At <insert intersection here>. Look for PD – they are out with an injury accident, and they have diagnosed someone with a concussion.”

Friggin’ cops.
