It makes you pay more for healthcare and further decreases retirement benefits for future employees. They already ruined it by getting rid of 20 year retirement. Few people other than the desperate will stay in policing, fire, or EMS for any longer than necessary to see if they can get promoted off the street. The days ofpeople staying on a beat or in a unit working cases will be at an end after a few more years. You can make better money in many other jobs for a lot less risk.

Libtards have only themselves and their idiot political minione in law enforcement to blame for the opioid pandemic. Every ounce if heroin bought into Louisville is carried here by Latin American drug mules, most of which are illegal aliens from Mexico. You can't fix stupid, but it's very hard to distinguish them from the corrupt ones who belong in prison with the drug smugglers.

Bodycams proven to be a waste of money.

"Having police officers wear little cameras seems to have no discernible impact on citizen complaints or officers' use of force, at least in the nation's capital. That's the conclusion of a study performed as Washington, D.C., rolled out its huge camera program. The city has one of the largest forces in the country, with some 2,600 officers now wearing cameras on their collars or shirts.

"We found essentially that we could not detect any statistically significant effect of the body-worn cameras," says Anita Ravishankar, a researcher with the Metropolitan Police Department and a group in the city government called the Lab @ DC. "I think we're surprised by the result. I think a lot of people were suggesting that the body-worn cameras would change behavior," says Chief of Police Peter Newsham. "There was no indication that the cameras changed behavior at all."

Perhaps, he says, that is because his officers "were doing the right thing in the first place." In the wake of high-profile shootings, many police departments have been rapidly adopting body-worn cameras, despite a dearth of solid research on how the technology can change policing.

"We need science, rather than our speculations about it, to try to answer and understand what impacts the cameras are having," says David Yokum, director of the Lab @ DC.

His group worked with local police officials to make sure that cameras were handed out in a way that let the researchers carefully compare officers who were randomly assigned to get cameras with those who were not. The study ran from June 2015 to last December.

"This is a very methodologically rigorous study. It is very well done. And that's not a small issue, because there have been many studies of body-worn cameras that are not rigorous," says Michael White, a researcher at Arizona State University who has studied body-worn camera programs in Tempe, Ariz., and Spokane, Wash.

It's to be expected that these cameras might have little impact on the behavior of police officers in Washington, D.C., he says, because this particular force went through about a decade of federal oversight to help improve the department.

"They're hiring the right people; they've got good training; they've got good supervision; they've got good accountability mechanisms in place," White says. "When you have a department in that kind of state, I don't think you're going to see large reductions in use of force and complaints, because you don't need to. There is no large number of excessive uses of force that need to be eliminated."

The big question about cameras now is, White says: "Is it worth the cost?" Besides buying the actual cameras, cash-strapped police departments have to pay to store and manage many thousands of hours of video footage. "I think a big part of the answer to that question is going to come from what the police department and the community want to accomplish with the rollout of body-worn cameras."

The results of this study call into question whether police departments should purchase body-worn cameras at all, says Harlan Yu, who works for an organization called Upturn that studies how technology affects civil rights and social justice issues.

"This is the most important empirical study on the impact of police body-worn cameras to date," Yu says. "If cameras don't decrease use of force, don't decrease the number of misconduct complaints and don't change officer behavior, then what are we adopting cameras for?"

Another example of why concealed carry should be mandatory for non-felons in high crime cities. Killers like this really don't behind bars as much as hanging from a noose in the town square at high noon. Call me old school.

Thugs find out Greenville doesn't always put its hands up.

GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. -- A neighbor who witnessed a man being robbed at gunpoint grabbed a gun and fired a shot, killing one of the suspects, according to authorities in South Carolina. On Oct. 12, Greenville County Sheriff's Office investigators said Shane William Standard, 25, Tracie Lewis Mayfield, 32, and Jeffrey Eugene Bradley, 31, went to a home, held a man at gunpoint inside the home and demanded money. Investigators said a neighbor saw the struggle, grabbed a gun and fired a shot, hitting Bradley at least once. He died at the hospital, Greenville County Coroner Kent Dill said. Standard and Mayfield are both charged with first-degree burglary, attempted armed robbery, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, criminal conspiracy and kidnapping, investigators said.

This is what you call a proper takedown of a bank robber. He had a gun too. This took some balls. Big brass balls. Citizens are starting to take the law into their own hands more and more and everyone should be glad. The alternative is Baltimore or Detroit-style criminal anarchy.

Gang related? Of course. The department will never say that or even give their race. Keep the public in the dark and feed them s--t like mushrooms. Instead of chasing officers away from crime scenes like used to be done to preserve evidence, they want at least 30 people standing around for the tv cameras so the public thinks there are enough officers on the street.

I sometimes hear people say that no matter how bad morale gets, how low of a pay raise there is, or how little retirement is being offered, there will always be someone willing to become an officer. They may be right about that. That someone is called a criminal.

"Former Baltimore police detective Momodu Gondo is detailing how he and other members of an elite "Gun Trace Task Force" (GTTF) robbed city residents while on the job. The robberies he described included home invasions and taking citizens' property while executing search warrants. According to WBAL, Gondo confessed to stealing "probably $100,000" in drugs, cash, and firearms.

He is one of eight members of the GTTF facing federal charges for the alleged robberies and invasions and theft of overtime as well. He agreed to testify against the other members in hopes of receiving a reduced sentence. He testified that his partner, Jemell Rayam, was especially focused on home invasions, that "he had experience running into people's homes to rob [them]." Gondo said they would use a tracking device to know when the homeowner was away; that is when they would go inside: Gondo reportedly admitted to "[filing] false arrest reports to cover stealing money from people." He and Rayam both testified that they robbed people while on the job. Rayam said, "Most of our robberies were as police officers, so we weren't too worried about getting caught." Gondo also described how easy it was to manipulate overtime pay. He said that there might be nights where "half the squad might be off, the other half working. [But] if they got a gun, [they] all got paid."

Recruiting should this self proclaimed JCPD veteran a rehire letter. He did a competent job of making a traffic stop the other day. He does not appear to need a pension or any PTO training, although may need a legal refresher.

The officer who took the warrant actually needs remedial training in proper recruiting tactics.

Armed civilians cause ex-felon shooter to drop gun and run to vehicle. They pursue shooter going 95 mph. He loses control and crashes. Police show up later.

This is exactly why we have a 2nd amendment, concealed carry laws and pursuits. Law abiding, able bodied people should be packing every day and everywhere. They greatly outnumber the criminals who greatly outnumber police.

People are being misled into thinking there are going to be "more patrols". You don't get more patrols with the same number of officers and same overtime money. You get fewer patrols on one beat to increase patrols on another beat.

On the other hand, the K-9 horse patrol, peacewalk and coffee with a cop will surely stop murderers in their tracks. 9th Mobile will provide their usual large numbers of expert perimeter security for crime scenes, so the public can see their cool khaki uniform on the evening news.

There comes a time in a criminal's life where the rubber meets the road.

"Police used rubber bullets to take a suspected carjacker into custody Wednesday night after the man allegedly stole an officer's gun and then led them on a pursuit in Long Beach. The incident began about 10 p.m. when an officer responded to a suspicious person call and determined the man had stolen a vehicle, Long Beach Police Department public information officer Nancy Pratt said. The man began to fight as the officer attempted to take him into custody, and at some point, managed to take the officer's gun away from him, Pratt said. The officer suffered moderate injuries during the altercation and was hospitalized.

The man fled the location with the gun and then carjacked a woman a few blocks away, prompting officers to initiate a pursuit, Pratt said. The chase ended near the intersection of East 7th Street and Martin Luther King Avenue with the driver barricading himself inside the vehicle. "Rubber baton bullets were also deployed during the incident," Pratt said."
