Stupid Cop Tricks VI

It’s time for another exciting episode of Stupid Cop Tricks.

We start with one of the West’s most lawless towns, Tombstone,, or so it was until the Earp’s came to town. Apparently the worst of the old days have resurfaced as police officers are trading sexual favors for police protection, drinking on duty, a filing cabinet full of sex toys (makes you wonder what they really use the handcuffs for) and turning over six marshals in three years.

That’s right the same town that fought to be excluded from Arizona’s laws on Concealed Carry for law abiding citizens is apparently far busier with their vices than protecting the public and enforcing the law.

To further instill confidence that the police are the only ones who should have firearms; two Baltimore officers apparently well into their cups pick a fight with teenagers and are charged with misdemeanors. There is nothing like bullying kids and starting a fight to make you feel like a real man.

A brave new insight into crime prevention comes from the police chief in Jersey City. When they received a call to help a local restaurant which had a shooting in the parking lot the police chief’s response was to make the establishment close early. That’s a brilliant idea, if no one was out, working and earning a living the thieves would have no one to rob! !

This week’s piece de resistance comes from the socialist paradise of Illinois where Mayor Daley and Governor Blagojevich are seemingly attempting to outdo each other in a race to make the streets safe for thugs, rapists and murderers by disarming the law abiding.

While the Mayor and Governor are pushing legislation that will drive out $300 million dollars from the Illinois economy by forcing relocation of all firearms manufacturer’s in Illinois ten police chiefs have come to the aid of State troopers caught illegally possessing machine guns.

That’s right the laws that apply to you and me apparently should not apply to State Troopers in Illinois. A letter was sent to the U.S. District Attorney handling the case signed by ten police chiefs asking that the punishment for the officers involved be handled administratively by the State Police.

They might as well as for permission to let their mommies give them a time out for violation of federal law which would send any of us to prison for ten years.

I proposed Civilian Oversight of Police to elected officials in Stafford Springs, Connectidut.

I had fixed 2 rental properties up from a boarded up condition and police refused to do anything about vandalism, prostitution, heroin and crack cocaine dealing, so I tried to force police to do their jobs.

Police partner with the above mentioned criminals to maximize revenue collection and asset confiscation.

I was current on 3 mortgages when I was railroaded to prison for being attacked in my own driveway from behind in the dark by a police informant.

I lost everything for being vocal in newspapers, proposing Civilian Oversight of Police, and for threatening to sue police for civil rights violations.
