The Department of Justice concludes that there is “reasonable cause to believe that the Chicago Police Department engages in a pattern or practice of use of excessive force in violation of the Fourth Amendment.”

Chicago has one of the highest crime rates of any city in the Nation. Sounds like they aren’t allowed to be excessive enough.

Imagine if the city were full of law abiding citizens. Would there still be a finding of excessive force?

Man Furious After Cops Issue Him Ticket For Warming Up His Car In His Own Driveway

Cops Issue Man Ticket For Warming Up His Car In His Own Driveway

Apparently in parts of the USA, warming up your car in your own driveway can land you in jail, or worse. Residents across the land of the free are quickly learning how unfree they actually are as they are issued citations for everyday activities such as allowing your engine to warm up on a cold morning.

Nick Taylor, of Roseville, Michigan, has taken to social media to express his anger over police issuing him a notice of extortion (citation) for doing what millions of people every morning do across the country.

“Every person warms up their car,” Taylor said. “We live in Michigan!”

If you don’t think a citation for warming up your car will land you in jail — try not paying it. If you don’t think a citation for warming up your car can lead to your death — try resisting your captors when they come after you for nonpayment.

However, if the public were truly at risk by a car running in a driveway, this cop should have notified Taylor of it — in the interest of public safety. But that did not happen.

All tickets are enforced with the threat of violence. To deny it is to deny reality. So, when government officials begin issuing threats of violence for everyday activities such as warming up your car, it’s time to start paying attention.

“Vehicle parked in drive with keys in ignition, motor running — no one around,” the Roseville officer wrote on the ticket in a sorry attempt to justify the extortion.

The officer never attempted to knock on Taylor’s door to inform him of the asinine law, and instead issued a demand for money.

“That would have been respectful,” Taylor said. “I had no clue that this was a law, an ordinance.”

When asked by WDIV 4 why cops were stealing money from people for warming up their cars, police said the key component of the case is whether the key is in the car. Using a remote starter is OK because the key isn’t in the car. If the key is in the car, it’s a state and local violation, because somebody could take off in the car.

“You’re putting the public at risk,” Roseville Police Chief James Berlin said. “This is purely a public safety issue.”

However, if the public were truly at risk by a car running in a driveway, this cop should have notified Taylor of it — in the interest of public safety. But that did not happen.

Instead, this officer showed that revenue collection and revenue collection alone was his mission by doing nothing to stop the supposed risk.

Taylor quickly went to Facebook after receiving the citation and let his feelings be known. The idea of being extorted for warming up one’s car apparently resonated with people as it has shared more than 13,500 times as of Monday.

After seeing the post on Facebook, Chief Berlin had no problem publicly noting that he wished ill-will on Taylor.

“You see the disparaging comments he made about my officer?” Berlin said. “Drop dead.”

Taylor said he didn’t mean to call the officer a name, but noted how ridiculous the ticket was.

“Unattended car?” Taylor said. “I’ve done this every day for seven years. Every person warms up their car. We live in Michigan.”

Rubber Chicken A friend of mine is a deputy with the sheriff’s department canine unit. One evening, the deputy was dispatched to the scene of a possible burglary, where he discovered the back door of a building ajar. He let the dog out his patrol car and commanded it to enter and seek.

Jumping from the back seat, the dog headed for the building. After lunging through the doorway, the dog froze and backed out. My friend was puzzled until he investigated further.

Then he noticed the sign on the building: “Veterinarian’s Office.”

Rubber Chicken Late one night a man is driving down the road, speeding quite a bit. A cop notices how fast he is going and pulls him over. The cop says to the man, “Are you aware of how fast you were going?”

The man replies, “Yes I am. I’m trying to escape a robbery I got involved in.”

The cop gives him a skeptical look and says, “Were you the one being robbed?”

The man casually replies, “No, I committed the robbery.”

The cop looks shocked that the man admitted this. “So you’re telling me you were speeding…AND committed a robbery?”

“Yes,” the man calmly says. “I have the loot in the back.”

The cop begins to get angry. “Sir, I’m afraid you have to come with me.” The cop reaches in the window to subdue the man.

“Don’t do that!” the man yells fearfully. “I’m scared you will find the gun in my glove compartment!” The cop pulls his hand out. “Wait here,” he says.

The cop calls for backup. Soon cops, cars, and helicopters are flooding the area. The man is cuffed quickly and taken towards a car. However, before he gets in, a cop walks up to him and says, while gesturing to the cop that pulled him over, “Sir, this officer informed us that you had committed a robbery, had stolen loot in the trunk of your car, and had a loaded gun in your glove compartment. However, we found none of these things in your car.”

The man replies, “Yeah, and I bet that liar said I was speeding too!”

 

 

 

Dancing El Paso County Sheriff’s Deputies

El Paso County Sheriff’s Deputies are bustin’ a move in Colorado Springs.

Enjoy!

Deputy Tony Scherb of the El Paso Country Sheriff’s Office has recently gone viral on the Internet with his most recent actions.

Deputy Scherb retired after 29 years on the job. Widely regarded by many of his peers as an incredible professional, he decided to break character in the most outrageous way. While standing alone in the department’s elevator, a hidden camera records Deputy Scherb dancing to Silento’s “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae).”

It’s easy to see why so many people have fallen in love with this man’s moves!

Just when you think the video can’t get any better, Deputy Reed enters the elevator. At first, she’s taken aback by Deputy Scherb’s dancing – who wouldn’t? – but then she catches the bug and starts dancing, too! It’s a dance party in the elevator between two deputies.

How awesome is that?

Watch as this poor squirrel struggles to get a stuck plastic cup off its head.

Enjoy!

Emergency responders in Connecticut have come to the rescue of a squirrel that was caught in a nutty situation.

Members of Enfield Emergency Medical Services responded Friday after the rodent got its head stuck in what appeared to be a plastic or paper cup.

Video posted on the Enfield EMS Facebook page shows the critter wildly jumping and flipping into the air in an effort to dislodge the cup.

Responders’ first attempt to remove the cup was unsuccessful. The wily rodent hopped out of one officer’s hands and through the legs of another.

The second attempt proved more successful. An officer covered the animal with a blanket and held its body steady while another officer removed the cup before the critter scampered away into some nearby bushes.

Shoe Laces

While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, an officer was interrupted by a little boy about six years old. Looking up and down at his uniform, he asked, “Are you a cop?”

“Yes,” he replied and continued writing the report.

“My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?”

“Yes, that’s right,” he told him.

“Well, then,” he said as he extended his foot towards the officer, “would you please tie my shoe?”

Obama's Anti-Police Rhetoric Turns Deadly

A few thoughts:

Every president needs a legacy. This and ISIS are Obama’s.

I guess we can say that the Black Lives Matter movement is now an official domestic terrorist group.

Keep this in mind about Obama’s real agenda; Obama says, when cops kill people, it’s racism, but when people kill cops, it’s guns.

Dallas murders show shameless vilification of police by Obama and the left incites violence

President Obama and the left’s anti-police rhetoric and shameless abuse of racial identity politics has created a deadly climate for law enforcement that led directly to the murder of five police officers in Dallas during a Black Lives Matter protest on Thursday night.

Dallas Police Chief David Brown confirmed Friday morning that the shooters targeted white officers. “The suspect said he was upset about Black Lives Matter,” said Brown, who is black. “He said he was upset about the recent police shootings. The suspect said he was upset at white people. The suspect stated that he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”

The attack on police came after two black men were killed by white police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and St. Paul, Minnesota. President Obama posted a screed on Facebook Thursday afternoon blaming police. “All Americans should recognize the anger, frustration, and grief that so many Americans are feeling,” Obama wrote. “What’s clear is that these fatal shootings are not isolated incidents. They are symptomatic of the broader challenges within our criminal justice system, the racial disparities that appear across the system year after year, and the resulting lack of trust that exists between law enforcement and too many of the communities they serve.”

The president’s vitriolic rhetoric came at the end of a long day of comments by leaders of the left, many of whom directly blamed police in St. Paul and Baton Rouge. While Obama and the left rush to blame any shooting perpetrated by a white person — or an Afghan Muslim if he happens to target homosexuals — on Republican and right-wing rhetoric, they are urging the country to do anything but blame the toxic anti-law enforcement environment they themselves created for the tragedy that occurred in Dallas.
