RETIRED OFFICER STEVE WEESNER



Badge 1503
Born Oct. 6, 1948
Appointed Feb. 1971
Retired April 1983
Died Dec. 27, 2017


Steve was a regular attendee at the monthly PBA meetings until about five years ago when he moved from Fremont to Canyon City, Colorado. When he had some dental surgery performed several months ago he developed what became a septic infection. It got worse over time and Steve eventually had to be placed in a rehab facility. He passed away on Dec. 27 as preparations were being made to transport and admit him to the ER. The specific cause of his passing is unknown. Whether Steve’s history of PTSD and emphysema were contributing factors is unknown, which is why the family has requested an autopsy.

Steve leaves behind his wife, Lynda; daughter Sabrina and son-in-law Stephen; two grandchildren, Kylee and Spencer; and two brothers, Jeff and SJPD Retiree Greg Weesner.

Steve served as a military policeman and qualified as a Sharpshooter in the Army prior to joining the SJPD. We have no information about his former history.

There will be no service.

RETIRED OFFICER JOHN REINERT

Badge 3262
Born July 5, 1956
Appointed March 1996
Retired Dec. 29, 2017
Died Jan. 2, 2018


John died after an approximate 2 1/2 year battle with kidney cancer. He was initially diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and went through a variety of treatments. If you knew John, you know he  was a pretty private person and he went out on his own terms. If his final wishes were honored, there won't be any pics of him in the Insider or anywhere official. He did not like to be in the spotlight and was adamant about us doing everything we could to keep his passing very quiet. He always hated funerals and would not have one, although he did agree to let us have an upbeat celebration of life in a few weeks; we'll be sure to let everyone know about that. In the meantime, and again, this was something we spoke about as late as Monday night (he passed away early Tuesday a.m.); he wanted everything as low-key as possible. If he had his way, there would be no articles like this appearing anywhere.

John retired last Friday after a 22-year career here. He worked for HP for several years before joining the PD and was a reserve before becoming a regular.

Those who want more information are free to reach out to me.

We’ll miss you, big fella.

POA NEWS




We all knew that our loved Chaplain Bridgen was fighting through his medical condition and would at some point leave us here on earth, physically, because there is no way a man as great as our Chaplain could ever leave our hearts and memories.  

He will  truly be missed. There is no doubt in my mind that I can say he has saved more police officers lives than any other SJPD Officer I know and ever will know. Chaplain Bridgen has patched together more officers lives, marriages and families before all of our eyes. He held us when we hurt and felt our losses because they were his losses as well.

It was an amazing thing to see how he truly loved every single one of us, everyday. He was an angel that walked through our police department and blessed us. Our dear Chaplain will now continue to bless us in another way, by watching over us as an angel above.

I know we all will honor him in a way that he truly deserves! The POA will lower our flag to half-staff, and we will proudly mourn him by placing our black bands around our badges.

Chaplain Dave, you are our brother and always will be. Love and prayers to you Betty Ruth and your family always.  

With love and sadness,

Your SJPOA Board and Executive Staff

PENSION NEWS


All too frequently where CalPERS and CalSTRS goes other California pension plans often follow. If you are still working, this article could conceivably be cause for worry. If you are retired, forget about it. At least for now…    

Supreme Court Cases Could Bring About Benefit Cuts for Workers Still on the Job    

By Jonathan J. Cooper — Associated Press
Mercury News — Dec. 29 2017


SACRAMENTO — For decades in California, a sacrosanct rule has governed public employees’ pensions: Benefits promised can never be taken away.

But cases before the state Supreme Court threaten to reverse that premise and open the door to benefit cuts for workers still on the job.

The lawsuits have enormous implications for California cities, counties, schools, fire districts and other local bodies facing a sharp rise in their pension costs.



Gov. Jerry Brown, in a November brief, argued that
benefits have been handed out too generously.


The ballooning expenses are an issue that Gov. Jerry Brown will face in his final year in office despite his earlier efforts to reform the state’s pension systems and pay down massive unfunded liabilities.

His office has taken the unusual step of arguing one case itself, pushing aside Attorney General Xavier Becerra and making a forceful pitch for the Legislature’s right to limit benefits.

At issue is the “California Rule,” which dates to court rulings beginning in 1947. It says workers enter a contract with their employer on their first day of work, entitling them to retirement benefits that can never be diminished unless replaced with similar benefits.

It gives workers security that their retirement will be safe and predictable after a career in public service. But it also ties lawmakers’ hands in responding to exploding pension costs.

It’s widely accepted that retirement benefits linked to work already performed cannot be touched. But the California Rule is controversial because it prohibits even prospective changes for work the employee has not yet done.

“Lots of people in the pension community are paying attention to these cases and are really interested in what the California Supreme Court is going to do here,” said Amy Monahan, a University of Minnesota professor who studies pension law.

Pension systems around the country are facing unprecedented pressures from generous benefits, severe losses during the Great Recession, mostly anemic investment earnings since, and retirees living for longer.

California’s two major pension funds, which have more than $570 billion in assets between them, have enough money to pay for only about two-thirds of their anticipated costs.

As a result, both the California Public Employees Retirement System and the State Teachers Retirement System will collect billions of additional dollars from state and local governments, putting pressure on those budgets.

The pending cases stem from a Brown-backed 2012 pension reform law that sought to rein in costs and end practices viewed as abuses of the system. One of those eliminated benefits was a right to buy up to five years of credit when retirement benefits are calculated, so a person who worked 20 years would get a monthly check as if he’d worked 25 years.

Brown, in a brief filed in November, argued benefits have been handed out too generously.

“For years, self-interested parties, overly generous promises whose true costs were often shrouded by flawed actuarial analyses, and failures of public leadership had caused unsustainable public pension liabilities,” his office wrote. A ruling is expected before Brown leaves office in January 2019.

The 2012 law also limited the types of income that can be used to calculate pension benefits in an attempt to limit “pension spiking,” or driving up final salaries to increase payments in retirement.

A group of Marin County employees sued separately over the changes, arguing the benefits couldn’t be altered. The California Court of Appeal in San Francisco disagreed in a ruling that strikes at the heart of the California Rule.

“While a public employee does have a ‘vested right’ to a pension, that right is only to a ‘reasonable’ pension — not an immutable entitlement to the most optimal formula of calculating the pension,” Judge James A. Richman wrote. The case is now pending at the Supreme Court. Dave Low, chairman of Californians for Retirement Security, a union coalition, said the Supreme Court upholding the lower-court ruling would be a “major setback” for public employees.

“If they base their decision on precedent, I don’t think that there’s much for the public employees to worry about,” Low said. “The key will be if the Supreme Court decides to break away from decades of precedent and dozens of decisions.”

Nothing of note this week crossed our desk.



MAILBOX



Dec. 29th


It looks like we have the definitive answer to Mike Thompson’s letter from a few weeks ago in which he was trying to I.D. the officer who took a round to his vest-protected chest and an arm or hand. Ted Morella wrote in and said he thought it was Dave Tozer. He said he and his sergeant, Dwight Messimer, responded to a shots fired incident in which he and Dwight found Dave on the porch of a residence with gunshot injuries. We contacted Dave and he responded with the following:

First round hit my chest. Knocking me to ground. I had moved to my left to get out of range of fire. While doing so I took two rounds to my right arm. One round entered my lower arm, traveled up thru my radial bone and out thru the elbow. The other round went into my forearm and tore thru it.

All thru this I was going for my weapon. When I hit the ground I was face down with my gun in my right hand. I sensed the subject was coming for me and made it up on my knees turning and facing him. As he came down the porch we both fired at the same time. I hit his trigger finger (it was amputated later), two rounds went into his chest, and one shattered the bone in his right upper leg as he fell in the street.

He had a sucking chest wound and died at scene, but ambulance personnel  brought him back.

I went up on the porch and was trying to stop all the bleeding. I asked the people inside to get me towels, but they never opened the door, so I squatted in the corner and applied pressure.

Long story short. I ended up at San Jose ER.

Just happy to still be here, happy holidays to all my friends in blue.

It goes without saying that all of us are glad you are still here, too, Dave. Happy New Year! Let’s hope that you and the rest of us are here to celebrate many more New Years!

Hi Bill,

I think Ron Webster's account left out one factor about Rocky's response after Henry Bunch was shot with his own gun. My memory is that Rocky had already locked up his gun. When he heard the shot, he rushed in unarmed, wrestled Henry's gun away from his assailant and shot and killed him. A very, very brave action.

Looking back, that’s how I remember it as well.

Jan. 2nd

Bill,

Hope everything went quietly through the Holidays. Everything went fine here.

As we start out in 2018 I was thinking of what was in store for this coming year — what was left to accomplish. Trying to come up with a short version so I could at least remember the formula was a challenge. I started off remembering how hard it was for me to get through the school door on my first day in first grade. Back then, for me at least, that was a very big deal  But awkward and nervous, I somehow managed my way through the door, then onward through the days, and years; grade school then high school and finally college. Tracing those days (plus a whole lot more), and looking ahead into 2018 I was able to summarize my thoughts and feelings about the whole process into just a few short phrases.

Then, I recognized that the system works for just about everything. If you want to be a doctor, it works — run a marathon, study auto mechanics, write an essay; everything. Just the length of time changes, that's all. But the focused energy and the sequence remain the same. Here's what I came up with; words that even I can remember.

Small steps, long time, minimum breaks, sincere heart. Nothing is ever worth doing unless one is sincere.

Some may not wish to travel through one, two or three any longer, but I'm pretty sure most can manage some portion of number four.

Stay safe and take care,

P.S.  Grateful for the post on Chaplin Dave - thoughts and prayers.

RELEASED BODYCAM FOOTAGE TELLS THE REAL STORY

 

Girl Tells Social Media She was 'Sexually Assaulted' by Police — So Chief Releases Bodycam

Blue Lives Matter — July 6, 2017


Burlington, VT - 18-year-old Logan Huysman took to social media after her arrest, claiming that Burlington police sexually assaulted her. She even showed off bruises on her arms as proof. In response, Chief Brandon del Pozo released the bodycam footage which showed an impaired Huysman acting disorderly, assaulting police officers, and more (video below.)

Not only that, but Chief Brandon del Pozo even responded directly to the girl's Facebook post, prompting a wave of outrage at the girl's behavior which resulted in her deleting the post.

The ACLU is not happy that the chief released facts about the case in order to counter lies spread by Logan Huysman, accusing him of using facts to "shut down conversations."

"There's a fine line between engaging the community, which is something we want our law enforcement officers to do, and doing what some might see as trying to shut down conversations," said Jay Diaz, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Vermont, according to Katie Jickling with Seven Days. "Affirmatively posting on a citizen's Facebook page, especially in a sensitive situation, seems fairly inappropriate and would be understandably chilling."

This isn't the first time that the Chief del Pozo has responded to police-haters on social media and created controversy.

He has learned that people who post anti-police statements on a public forum, such as their open Facebook or Twitter pages, tend to become very uncomfortable when engaged directly.

When former city councilor Haik Bedrosian posted to social media that the department's new badge design "belongs on a robot soldier in a dystopian future police state," this chief respectfully responded in a private message.

"Writing it off ... is your prerogative and your opinion, but you should also take seriously the months of careful work a lot of people put into it," del Pozo wrote, according to Seven Days. "They were not robocops, but nearly all born Vermonters who have a deep affinity for the city and its police."

Bedrosian says that he was shocked by the intimidation in the message, and even after deleting the message and blocking the chief he said, "I remain intimidated by Brandon del Pozo to this day."

On June 22, the date of Logan Huysman's arrest, officers located a group of unconscious teens in a running car in a parking lot at Cumberland Farms on Pine Street.

Officers worked to rouse the teens who were passed out next to marijuana and alcohol. During the 90-minute ordeal, Huysman demanded that the officer pay her $80 for her marijuana bong, threatened suicide, performed cartwheels, destroyed paperwork, reached into her waistband and simulated producing a gun with her hand, pointing it at officers, screamed at officers, resisted arrest, and assaulted officers.

Logan Huysman was ultimately arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and simple assault on a law enforcement officer.

After her release, Huysman claimed on social media that police touched her inappropriately, and posted pictures of her bruised arms. "I would consider that sexual assault, especially coming from 'authority,'" she said. She later claimed that the post was meant to be a "wake-up call" on police misconduct, indicated that she has still failed to take responsibility for the situation even though she now says that she regrets making the post.

Logan Huysman's father saw the footage and it siding with the police, saying, "She was resisting arrest, and she had to be forcefully put in the police car. The police showed more patience than I would have."

As for the chief, he says that he's done posting directly on people's social media pages, and future releases would come out on the department's pages.

CLOSE CALL FOR TWO LAS VEGAS COPS


This is another example of how things on a standard car stop can go bad in less than a second…

Two Las Vegas Officers Shot - Win Gunfight with Headshot

By Christopher Masterson — Blue Lives Matter — Aug. 5, 2017



Click HERE to watch the video.


Las Vegas, NV - Two Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officers were shot Tuesday afternoon after a theft suspect pulled a gun on them. The body camera footage has now been released (video below.)

The shooting stemmed from a theft on Sunday where a man had his cell phones stolen from his car while he was in a grocery store.

The theft victim was later able to track the position of his cell phones to a spot where a pickup truck was parked in the 4100 block of West Tompkins Avenue.

At around 4:15 PM on Tuesday, two officers received the report of the cell phone's location and contacted the occupant of the vehicle, Miguel Salas, 25, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The officers talked to Salas and asked him to get out of the truck. The man refused to comply with the officers' commands, and refused to exit his vehicle. Rather than forcing Salas out, the officers continued to try to talk to him.

This is in line with the new age of police training. Officers used to be taught the "Ask, Tell, Make" method of gaining compliance. You used to ask somebody to do something, then when they refused you'd tell them to do it, and if they'd still refused, you'd make them do it.

Ask, Tell, Make results in officers using force more often, so training is now focusing on talking to people in an effort to convince them to comply. Officers may skip straight to a use of force if the suspect is presenting a threat or indicates that they may become violent.

Critics of the new training say that it gives suspects more of an opening to escape or attack while officers are busy coddling them.

As the officers worked to convince Salas to exit his vehicle, they finally told him that he could get tased. The suspect responded by pulling a gun and shooting the officers.

Officer Richard Nelson was struck through a gap in his ballistic vet, getting shot through the abdomen. The second officer was shot on his gunbelt, which deflected the bullet; he was uninjured.

The suspect shot nine times, and it was initially reported that he shot himself. The coroner determined that the suspect was fatally shot in the head by Officer Nelson.

“I got to watch some of the body-worn camera from this incident tonight, and as I stand before you today, I can tell you we are extremely lucky,” Captain Kelly McMahill said. “And I feel very blessed that our officers are able to go home tonight and be with their families.”

A bystander also recorded the gunfight, and that video has now been released.

“It’s happening all across the valley, and now individuals are taking it upon themselves to fire at police officers,” Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said at a press conference on Tuesday. “This is the situation we’re put in quite often. And this is what we signed up to do. But we didn’t sign up to get shot."

Officer Nelson is in stable condition.


THIS IS SO OVER THE TOP

Are You Ready For Women's March PART TWO? Organizers Plan January Event

—This year, though, it won't be in frigid DC.—

By Emily Zonotti — The Daily Wire


Dig out those pussy hats and steam those vagina costumes because the Women's March is looking to draw out their relevance by hosting a second national event, the "Women's March Part Two." But this time, they'll gather in sunny Las Vegas instead of frigid D.C..

According to Women's March organizers, who have been so busy planning their first anniversary, they've said nary a peep about the women-led protests in Iran, the first Women's March was so successful that they want to channel their energy into grassroots action, including a national voter registration drive.

The event, "Power To The Polls" will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, location to be determined. Like their Detroit event, which proved largely unsuccessful, and actually featured a male headliner in progressive Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, the Power To The Polls event is free, but donations are strongly encouraged and travel is your responsibility.

They picked Nevada, though, not for the weather, but for the headlines. According to their "about" page, Nevada has become a flashpoint for major issues in the US, from labor participation to gun control, they say, cynically using a national tragedy to promote their cause. And Nevada, they claim, is a "battleground" state in 2018, though Democrats have won most major statewide offices (and the state went solidly for Hillary Clinton in 2016).

But no one has ever claimed that the Women's March has self-awareness.

“In Alabama, Black women delivered as they always do,” said Linda Sarsour, co-chair of the Women’s March, in a statement on the website. “In addition to being willing to follow and support Black women, we all must commit to fighting the systemic voter suppression laws that inhibit so many of our communities from voting. This campaign will mobilize a new group of activists to create accessible power to our voting polls.”

They also claim to be leading the way in the fight against sexual harassment, though that seems mostly to involve publicizing a Hollywood-based (and Hollywood-funded) effort to combat gender-based violence in the entertainment industry.

STORIES OF THE WEEK

Military Strategies

Received from Debbie Zearbaugh


During the royal wedding, millions watching around the world saw that Prince William chose to wear a uniform that included the famous British “red coat." Many people have asked, "Why did the British wear red coats in battle?”


A long time ago, Britain and France were at war. During one battle, the French captured a British Colonel. They took him to their headquarters and the French General began to question him.

Finally, as an afterthought, the French General asked, “Why do you British officers all wear red coats? Don’t you know the red material makes you easier targets for us to shoot at?"

In his casual, matter-of-fact, way, the officer informed the French General that the reason British officers wear red coats is so that if they are wounded, the blood won’t show, and the men they are leading won't panic.

And that’s why, from that day forward...

 

...all French Army officers have worn brown pants.

The phone call…



From the Archives


Hi honey. This is Daddy. Is Mommy near the phone?"

"No Daddy. She's upstairs in the bedroom with Uncle Paul."

After a brief pause, Daddy says, "But honey, you haven't got an Uncle Paul."

Oh yes I do,  and he's upstairs in the room with Mommy, right now."

(Brief Pause)

"Uh, okay then, this is what I want you to do. Put the phone down on the table, run upstairs and knock on the bedroom door and shout to Mommy that Daddy's car just pulled into the driveway."

"Okay Daddy, just a minute."

A few minutes later the little girl comes back to the phone.

"I did it Daddy."

"And what happened honey?" he asked.

"Well, Mommy got all scared, jumped out of bed with no clothes on and ran around screaming. Then she tripped over the rug, hit her head on the dresser and now she isn't moving at all!"

"Oh my God! What about your Uncle Paul?"

"He jumped out of the bed with no clothes on, too. He was all scared and he jumped out of the back window and into the swimming pool. But I guess he didn't know that you took out the water last week to clean it. He hit the bottom of the pool and I think he's dead."

(long pause)

(longer pause)

(even longer pause)

Then Daddy says, "Swimming pool?...Is this 974-486-5731?"

Pop Quiz? Are baby gorillas ticklish? (Oops, looks like we gave the answer to that question away with the PIC below. Oh well.) (2:33)

We can’t believe this reaction time test where you dart sheep with a tranquilizer needle is still around after almost a dozen years (we last ran it in the Oct. 20, 2006 Farsider). Can you beat OUR time and receive a rating better than a “Bobbing bobcat?” Good luck!

Say what you want about the “Crazy Russian Hacker” —a/k/a Taras Kul — but he has become a very wealthy man as a result of the more than 3 million subscribers to his YouTube channel, and I’m not embarrassed to admit that I’m one of them. His shtick is to purchase rare or unusual items you don't see every day from Amazon and eBay and review them. He averages about two posts a week. This one about PopUp Towels is interesting because they are something that is fitting to keep in a survival kit, trunk or glove compartment of your car, shaving kit, WHATEVER. (3:29)

Mini comedies like this sometimes accompanied full length motion pictures in theaters back in the 1950s, but it was eventually decided that a cartoon and the Movietone newsreel along with the main feature or double-feature was sufficient to give movie goers their money’s worth The theme of THIS film was electric trains, a craze that was beginning to sweep the country in the '50s. (Mine was an American Flyer while yours was probably a Lionel.) (8:33)

We can confirm that the item below is one of only 126 similar survivors that exist in the country. These door stops that have been getting passed off as fruitcakes have been regifted over and over again each Christmas for the past 73 years, ever since the first one was imported after being discovered in King Tut’s tomb in Egypt.

Our tip of the week comes from Pat Boyd: “Don’t mess with heavy equipment OPERATORS in Russia.” (0:58)

Are you planning to take up the sport of surfing? Watch THIS before you go out and invest in a board. (3:23)

Could this be true, or is it Fake News. Let’s check with SNOPES. True or not, don’t get too excited about this. Remember, there are a thousand billion in one trillion, and our national debt hovers around 20 trillion.

Imagine you are at the controls of a chopper too far from land to set down and your only alternative to going for a swim is to land on a small rocking ship. HERE are two views, one from the deck, the other from the cockpit. (2:09)

What better way to close the Farsider and ring in the New Year than to gaze upon tons of smiles, both on the faces of these flash dance performers and the commuters at the St. Pancras underground train station in London? The video is a few years old, but the happiness of looking forward to a new year of fun and prosperity never changes from one year to the next. Click HERE, sit back and enjoy. And most of all, have a happy and joyful 2018. That’s what we plan to do. (5:59)

Have a great New Year!
