*Yes, this might be a good time to revisit your when-to-shoot training protocol officers. You have messed up AGAIN! This time, you went to the wrong house on a 911 robbery call; shot and killed the family dog, wounded the homeowner AND your fellow…seriously, I might add.
Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.
And what have you got to say for yourself?
Are we perfect? Absolutely not. But when we find that we made a mistake, we own it. We own the fact that we were at the wrong house,” he said. “We didn’t hide it. We didn’t mismanage it. We were at the wrong location based on information that was given to us.”
Interim DeKalb CEO Lee May said it was appropriate for the GBI to review the incident.
But how could things have gone so horribly wrong in the first place?
*Here we go again. What an eff’d up way to start the week. News that is becoming way too much of a trend reveals a Phoenix woman who allegedly drowned her 2-year-old twin boys because, as she told police, “no one loved them or her.” This according to court documents obtained by The Associated Press on Monday.
The mother, 22-year-old Mireya Alejandra Lopez, was arrested on Sunday at her Avondale home and after a judge ordered her to be jailed, he charged her with two counts of First Degree Murder and one count of Attempted Murder (she also tried to drown a third child, read on).
*It’s unfathomable. Absolutely unbearable. Inconceivable to know that an innocent little girl, who did absolutely nothing wrong, suffered such a horrible death as the 9-year-old girl who caught a bullet on August 18, went five shots came through the window of her family home, as she sat on her mother’s bed doing homework.
Audible fits of sorrow rang out on Saturday as tissues were passed along the pews where hundreds of mourners gathered to say ‘goodbye’ to little Jamyla Bolden; whose classmates sang in front of her coffin, through their sobs, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Continue reading →
*Well if this doesn’t beat all, I am at a loss for what will. Police officers generally get suspicious if you avoid eye-contact with them; but according to one man, the excuse a Dayton police officer used for tailing him before he eventually pulled him over, was because he did make direct eye contact with him.
Sheesh, talk about being damned if you do, damned if you don’t!
I’ll give you a minute to shake your head.
John Felton, who previously lived in Ohio, but has since moved to Michigan, was pulled over in front of his mom’s house. Though he was initially told by the officer that he allegedly activated his turn signal less than 100 feet before making a right turn, he suspected there was more to this because it was hard to believe he would be stopped for such a shallow technicality.
Felton probed a bit deeper, asking the officer for the real reason he was followed for several blocks and eventually pulled over.Continue reading →
*Who did this? With all the negative attention going around about police doing unlawful things; now it appears some secret bandit has taken it upon him or herself to leave this documentation.
The Atlanta Police Dept. is searching for the graffiti artist that chose to depict the iconic cartoon character, Elmer Fudd, all dressed up in police attire; holding his famous rifle. But its the sign that Fudd stands alongside that is causing a ruckus.
The sign reads “Negro Season” and it is painted on a building in midtown ATL. A city that was 34 percent black in 2010.
*Ahhh…You’ve finally gotten that home on the outskirts of that cosmopolitan city; where you now have more space but you’re paying less money. You have put a lot of time in that garden, too. Making sure you and your family have extra privacy; and keeping all of those bad elements out.
But check this: Did you ever consider plush shrubbery is the perfect disguise for a burglar jimmying his way in?
Nearby trees, too, can be used by a second-story man if the branches are above your windows. Keep vegetation trimmed low, and consider installing thorny plants close to the house to thwart thieves.
*This picture has been around for a good minute, but that’s no reason to dismiss it. After all, some hateful lack of real manhood went through an awful lot of trouble to create it; so my guess is he/they would like a response. Of course they would prefer to get a rise out of black folk. They want to get our blood boiling.
You see, this carefully orchestrated work was done by someone with not a damn thing else to do. Someone with a pitiful, hateful, white-trash kind of ignorance who wants black folk to feel the same self-depreciation that he does. So, in this painting of a cop (somehow the word police officer just sounds too good) seen hiding behind a Klansman’s hood, pointing his gun at a black child who is wearing a hoodie. The child is holding out a bag of skittles, as if offering it to the cop. In the background is a Confederate flag.
OK “artist,” now tell us something we don’t know. You have a disdain for black people. Yeah, we get it.
But here’s the thing: at the end of the day. You are no more of a man. In other words, people are still going to see you as a punk-ass b*tch.
*By now you have heard about the terrible accident at the hands of a toddler, resulting in the death of his father. What more reason do we need to address the issue of gun control? Better yet, what greater example to envision a society where there are no guns…eliminating these types of accidents?
I can’t help but “go there” for a minute and think (putting this very, very unfortunate accident aside for a minute) how many lives would have been spared if there were no guns to end them. How would differences be settled? What other alternative would police officers take if it were not so easy to reach for their pistol and shoot a suspect?
Maybe we’d go back to the old days of man up…dukes up and fight it out. I don’t recall many people dying from that, just bloody.
I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of people dying from being shot!
By all accounts 31-year-oldDivine Vaniah Chamblisswas a great dad. He was at home watching the kids while their mother was at work. Chambliss’ parents believe the toddler and his dad were napping together, when the child woke up and found the semiautomatic weapon and pulled the trigger.Continue reading →
