At midnight tonight, two important things will happen. Obviously, one is that we move into the year 2017. I’m hoping for a safe and happy year for all of you and your families! The second thing that happens is that our current SJPOA contract expires with the city.
As all of you know, we have recently worked to get Measure F over the line to restore vested pension benefits for our Tier II members and reinstate disability protections for those of us hurt in the line of duty. We worked hard along with Mayor Liccardo to pass a sales tax increase and a business tax increase that will generate over 50 million dollars for the General Fund. All of these measures were sold to the voters of San Jose as being necessary to rebuild our police department and other essential services.
Our negotiating team has been working hard to bring you a contract worthy of your consideration. Our goal is to rebuild our police department. Period. I know that many of you are frustrated. I understand that many of you are contemplating putting your papers in for retirement and that others may be accepting the many other job offers that are sitting on the table. All I can say is that your POA has been negotiating at the table for a wage increase that will allow the department to recruit and retain officers and allow them to live in one of the most expensive places in the nation to live. We negotiate with the mindset of ‘what will stop the bleeding and save this place.’ We need to have people come back to our department and others to stay. The only way to do this is to make us competitive once again. I do not know what the coming weeks will bring. We have and will make ourselves available day and night to get the wage package in a place for you to vote on. We have heard the Council and Mayor publicly for the last year say that they need to increase wages immediately to turn this place around. Only time will tell if those were empty words.
Happy New Year, and as always, please stay safe.

Yesterday, a broad coalition of law enforcement associations including the San Jose POA, Sergeants Benevolent Association of New York, San Francisco POA, Los Angeles PPL and the Oakland POA sent a letter to House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan that strongly urged him to remove from the halls of our nation's Capitol a piece of "art" that depicts police officers as Pigs gunning down innocent people.
This offensive painting was selected by a Missouri Congressman as part of an annual congressional contest and is slated to hang in the Capitol for a year. We urge Speaker Ryan to take down this painting and ensure that this type of divisive and inaccurate painting never sees the light of day in the halls of our nation’s Capitol.
This "art" has no place in our national dialogue regarding how law enforcement interacts with the communities we serve and should be removed.
By allowing this type of anti-police symbol to remain, it supports the violence against law enforcement across the nation and allows the false narrative to continue.

Case Study On Pension Reform: San Jose's Grand Compromise
By Ali Budner
Capital Public Radio, Dec. 29, 2016
Cities and states across the country are facing public employee pension debt that is challenging and, in some cases, crippling their budgets. But some municipalities are experimenting with ways to solve that problem. In San Jose, California, voters passed a set of sweeping pension reforms back in 2012. The public employee unions fought back in court. Now a new initiative passed this November may offer a compromise that works.
It’s a rainy day in October. Three recruiting officers from the San Jose Police Department are standing behind a table in a bustling room on a nearby public university campus. Today is the school’s career fair and the SJPD booth is covered in schwag--stickers, pens, even tiny bottles of hand sanitizer--emblazoned with the Department’s logo. They’re hoping job-seekers will stop and apply.
Deputy Chief, Michael Knox says staffing numbers are at a dangerous low. In fact, he says they’re down at least 300 street-ready officers right now. “It causes us to put an enormous amount of stress on the existing staff,” Knox says “to make up for everyone who has left this department.”
He blames the exodus mostly on a watershed moment back in 2012. That’s when San Jose voters passed local ballot measure B. The initiative poured vinegar into the sweet tea of public worker compensation deals by making sweeping cuts to retirement pensions. Current employees would have to pay more for their retirement benefits or take a less generous pension. New employees would be offered less. All public workers would lose their disability protections as well the certainty of their pensions, altogether if there was a fiscal emergency.
“That has made it increasingly difficult to compete with other agencies,” says Knox. “And not only to recruit but to retain our staff.”
But the man who pioneered Measure B -- former San Jose Mayor, Chuck Reed -- says pension reform was necessary. When he took office back in 2007, he inherited a massive budget deficit. To deal with it, first he did all the things that make people hate politicians. He laid people off, raised taxes, and made deep cuts to public services. But he says pension costs were the real culprit.In the first two years of his term, the city’s pension debt had actually skyrocketed to almost a billion dollars. “And so when the choice was cutting services more, raising taxes more, or making some modification to retirement benefits,” Reed says, “the public was supportive of reasonable modifications.”
“It’s not a hard and fast rule,” says Josh Rauh, professor of Finance at Stanford University. “But once more than 20 percent of the city's revenues are going towards public employee pensions, people start saying 'gee, this is untenable'. That's what happened in San Jose. They crossed that threshold.”
Measure B passed with nearly 70 percent of the vote. Reed says, “It felt like the people of San Jose agreed with me that we needed to do something about retirement costs.” He argues it’s something other cities and state of California should be doing, but aren’t.
He points to a framed editorial cartoon on his office wall. It shows California as a Titanic-like ship sinking into the sea. And two men with life jackets reading "San Jose" and "San Diego" (another city that passed its own version of pension reform) are watching it sink from their tiny lifeboat.
“So San Diego and San Jose are rowing away in a pension reform lifeboat while the state of California sinks,” says Reed.
But public employee unions saw Measure B differently. They despised the new law. And it wasn’t just them. Some in the business community worried about its effect on city agencies, especially public safety.
Reginald Swilley, a co-owner of the Minority Business Consortium in San Jose, was so upset about the number of officers the police department lost after Measure B passed, he said he had trouble talking about it. He’s an African American businessman and activist. “You know the problem with police and black people around the country, right?” He says. “We need good police.”
Critics of Measure B eventually got their say. Soon after voters passed the measure in 2012, the public employee unions challenged its legality. A superior court judge struck down a handful of the law’s provisions -- saying it was unconstitutional to alter benefits for current employees.
“San Jose made a risky gamble and it failed,” says Tom Saggau, spokesperson for the San Jose police officers and firefighters. He was at the table when the city and the unions negotiated an entirely new voter initiative (Measure F) based on the court ruling. It passed by a healthy margin this November. It’s a compromise that both sides seem happy with.
For the workers, says Saggau, “it’s a vested benefit, that restores disability protections, and keeps a promise that if you do what you say you’re going to do, have a career here in San Jose, you're gonna have a retirement benefit that you’re gonna be able to support yourself on.”
And the city says it will still save about $3 billion over the next 30 years. That’s because this compromise will significantly cut down on retiree health benefits and cost of living adjustments. It will also eliminate the “13th check” -- an annual bonus payment public workers had received in the years before 2012.
THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF SAN JOSE AND THE SJPD
‘Trust in Policing’ Forum Scheduled
—Long-term project aimed at bridging minority groups, police in San Jose—
By Robert Salonga <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Mercury News — Jan. 5, 2017
SAN JOSE — A long-term project to bridge minority groups and police in San Jose is set to kick off later this month with a community forum aimed at exposing each side’s concerns and hopes with the other.
The “Community Trust in Policing Forum” planned for Jan. 21 at the Mexican Heritage Plaza consists of panel discussions led by Police Chief Eddie Garcia and Walter Katz, the city’s independent police auditor. The forum is meant to be a chance for community members to raise their concerns and thoughts with the city’s top cop and its appointed policing watchdog.
The forum comes as the country enters its third full year in which contentious relations between communities of color and police have been firmly entrenched in the national consciousness, with the 2014 police-shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, serving as a cultural launch point.
Jose’s independent police auditor, Walter Katz, left, speaks with
police Chief Eddie Garcia (then assistant police chief) in 2015.
“It’s important that various communities of San Jose have a frank conversation about how policing can impact different communities differently,” Katz said. “There is a definite gap in perceptions of reality. It’s important to have conversations so they can learn about how police do their work, and also for police to get a better understanding of how the public perceives their work.”
Mayor Sam Liccardo and Jed York, CEO of the San Francisco 49ers, are scheduled to give opening remarks.
Katz said the forum is the first in a series of events he has planned for the next 18 months to improve the visibility of his office among residents, particularly those that have been historically disenfranchised and have had past tensions with police.
But the auditor, who has an extensive background in police transparency work in Los Angeles, said the ideas of accountability and good police relationships don’t have to be in opposition, as they have frequently been portrayed nationally.
“I’m of the opinion that public safety and officer safety and accountability all work together,” Katz said. “When folks think police are accountable and transparent, they’ll place more trust in police. Research has shown that when there is legitimacy, people are more cooperative as witnesses and more willing to report crime.”
Katz added that San Jose has the chance to be a national leader on the issue, as the city was when it formed the Office of the Independent Police Auditor in 1993. He cited an encouraging sign with an ongoing study commissioned by the police department to examine racial disparities in street detentions — both with pedestrian and traffic stops — that don’t yield arrests.
“San Jose is in a position to keep on setting the example for what oversight can look like in this country,” Katz said. “That requires revisiting on a regular basis where we are, what we are doing well, and what we can be doing better.”
Meanwhile, Chief Garcia has begun a web video series aimed at community outreach, in the form of highlighting everyday victories by his officers patrolling the streets of San Jose. On the department’s YouTube and Facebook pages, he is posting what he plans to be a recurring series of video spots describing police work that might not grab headlines but is reflective of how an understaffed department protects a city of 1 million residents.
Among the cases he has highlighted was a night patrol officer single-handedly stopping a car sought by authorities and confiscating handguns from suspected gang members, officers subduing an erratic knife-wielding man with minimal injury, and an instance where patrol cops caught suspected car vandals and recovered a firearm from them.
“These cases that we’re showing, whether it’s great arrests or de-escalation, they don’t generally make the news but are things that need to be highlighted,” Garcia said. “That story has to be told. These cases are happening daily and weekly with our officers.”
Garcia said he is careful not to be seen as trying to distract from the city’s crime and staffing issues, but rather as “contributing our point of view.”
“In light of everything going on, the assumption is that police officers are just waiting around for something to happen,” he said. “Though we’re going through issues, our officers are proactive and not sitting on their hands.”
To produce the spots, which are shot by the SJPD video unit at the Mission Street headquarters, Garcia said he uses a teleprompter and can usually knock out a recording in about 30 minutes’ worth of takes. For the time being, he’s taking advantage of the safety net that taped recordings offer.
“It’s a real good thing we’re not going live,” he said with a laugh.
I just watched the excellent Elvis/Martina McBride "Blue Christmas" video featured in the Farsider.
One of the best Elvis impersonators around is a Brit named Ben Portsmouth. Here he is on David Letterman's show back in 2013:
Hope you had a Merry Christmas. Enjoy your new Bolt!

Ed. — The following is in response to the comments about the Police/City contract mentioned in the SJPOA Membership alert above…
it looks like the City is trying to throw off the hold the POA tried to get to restore the Dept. I have little hope they are going to get a vote to bring this mess anywhere near what has to happen, even with Trump in there. In fact, I know Trump has a memory like an elephant and that he will remember the lack of protection and bad welcome he got when he stopped in San Jose for a “Peaceful” rally. I had just been to his stop in Sacramento where there were plenty of police in control of the crowd. There was no violence to speak of except for a few loud mouths who tried to get something gong. In short, no BS was allowed!
This contract should have been renewed a long time ago it would seem. As long as San Jose is a Sanctuary City it will go down and down like many others are right now.
Again, this is partly due to our Association always favoring the Democratic liberal side of things. I remember when Janet Gray Hayes was Mayor and saying something like “We are going to make San Jose Great Again!” The POA loved it until she got the money and then the hell with us.
Of course we were in a constant battle with “Ritters’ Rag” (the Mercury News) that turned on us every chance it got. And nothing has changed.

Happy 2017, Bill. Can't believe Don and I will be celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. He sent me these cartoons which makes me wonder if he's trying to tell me something?! If you can use them, great.
Hi to Leroy! A big thank you to both of you for keeping the Farsider going. We really look forward to receiving it each week.
Joanne MacDougall <email@example.com>
Happy New Year to you and Don as well, Joanne. I hope 2017 is a great year for all of us. Congrats on your upcoming Golden Wedding Anniversary. Certainly does make for a memorable milestone. I stashed the cartoons you sent in my filler file for those occasions when the newsletter needs some colorful images like this one that is from the group…

Who is Large and in Charge?
Right now Donald Trump is only the President-elect, but in just a few short weeks he will be Large and in Charge. There's a sobering set of words to contemplate. We can all agree to disagree regarding who should have won the election. But for right now, Trump is in the driver's seat, and it is what it is. We'll all have to deal with the consequences.
Large and in Charge is not meant to be just a play on words. In my opinion those words perfectly describe Trump's outward persona, and that persona has many unequal sides. Some people think he is the most intelligent, affirmative decision maker ever to enter the oval office, and that he has the hide of an alligator. He won the election when half his Party was against him, a remarkable feat in itself. Unspoken, and beneath the surface people could sense that Hilary might not be strong enough to ward off our gathering enemies. Trump has keen political instincts and plays his opponents ten steps ahead before they know they've been played. Many of his followers believe he is savvy, strong, and tough enough to lead America to greatness again.
On the minus side, many people are put off and confused by his language, mannerisms, and his unpredictability. There are some who only see the bully side of Trump, and still seem shocked and off balance that he got this far. In their disproportionate fear they can only see him as a dangerous swooping angel of darkness. They believe that Trump is a high states gambler and his undercover and sinister motives are to prepare America for war. What does he see, that the rest of us can't? Is he the one in charge or will world events soon overtake him?
Which way will the chips fall? How many chips will fall? Whose chips? Nothing is clear right now, but very soon we shall all see what a person who believes himself to be Large and in Charge is actually going to do. So stand by. At present, for me at least, I can only respect the process (barely), and bid him safe travels. I wish him only the best with hopes that he has the strength and insight and wisdom to hold the whole turbulent mess together.

STORIES OF THE WEEK
Boy With Train
The day after Christmas, a mother was working in the kitchen listening to her young son playing with his new electric train in the living room.
She heard the train stop and her son said, "All of you sons of bitches who want off, get the hell off now, ‘cause this is the last stop! And all of you sons of bitches who are getting on, get your asses in the train, ‘cause we're going down the tracks."
The mother went nuts and told her son, "We don't use that kind of language in this house. Now I want you to go to your room and you are to stay there for TWO HOURS. When you come out, you may play with your train, but I want you to use nice language."
Two hours later, the son comes out of the bedroom and resumes playing with his train.
Soon the train stopped and the mother heard her son say, "All passengers who are disembarking from the train, please remember to take all of your belongings with you. We thank you for riding with us today and hope your trip was a pleasant one. We hope you will ride with us again soon."
She hears the little boy continue, "For those of you just boarding, we ask you to stow all of your hand luggage under your seat. Remember, there is no smoking on the train. We hope you will have a pleasant and relaxing journey with us today."
As the mother began to smile, the child added, "For those of you who are pissed off about the two-hour delay, please see the cranky old bitch in the kitchen car."

few words about the Green Thing
Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the older woman that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.
The older woman apologized and explained, "We didn't have this Green Thing back in my earlier days."
The clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save the environment for future generations."
She was right -- our generation didn't have the Green Thing in its day.
Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled. But we didn't have the Green Thing back in our day.
We walked up stairs, because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks. But she was right, we didn't have the Green Thing in our day.
Back then, we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throw-away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy gobbling machine burning up 220 volts -- wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing. But that young lady is right; we didn't have the Green Thing back in our day.
Back then, we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana. In the kitchen, we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity. But she's right; we didn't have the Green Thing back then.
We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we wanted a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull. But we didn't have the Green Thing back then.
Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus, and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service. We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of outlets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 2,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest pizza joint.
Isn't it sad how the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the Green Thing back then?
Feel free to forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation from a young smart ass grocery clerk. And remind the youngsters of today that they would do well not to make us angry. We don't like being old in the first place, and it doesn't take much to piss us off.
THE BEST OF THE LATE NITE JOKES
Dec. 21 — Jan. 3
There were only three live performances by the late night talk show hosts since Dec. 21st. due to Christmas and New Year’s.
Dec. 21: Donald Trump loves Christmas. It's the one time of year where he can say, "Those are real, those are fake," and claim he was talking about Christmas trees.
Trump confirmed yesterday that he met with Mexican businessman Carlos slim recently. And I guess it went well, 'cause he later tweeted in all caps, "HE IS A GREAT GUY."
Even in print, Trump's way of communicating with foreigners is just speaking English louder.
Amazon's home assistance device, "The Echo," is already sold out until after the holidays. In the meantime, if you want to yell at something to turn off the lights or music in your house, just try your kids.
Walmart will close two hours earlier this year on Christmas Eve, at 6:00. Yeah, but the meth lab in the bathroom will stay open until 9:00.
A new study found that marijuana use among people over 65 has gone up 250 percent in recent years. One woman said, "I like to smoke up before watching 'Jeopardy!' I call it my daily doobie."
Dec. 21: Rudy Giuliani said this morning that even though Donald Trump passed him over for a position in his administration, Trump hasn't forgotten about him. Said Trump, "It's true. How could I ever forget Rudy Garziola? Gorgonzola, whatever. I'll never forget my good friend Judy."
Bill O'Reilly said last night that liberals want to eliminate the Electoral College because they want power taken away from the white establishment. Bill, you don't have to say, "White establishment." It's redundant. That's like saying ATM machine. The "M" means machine.
Vice president Joe Biden will reportedly work at the University of Pennsylvania once he leaves office. Apparently they had an opening for, "Cool R.A."
According to a recent study, Pokémon go players have collectively walked 5.7 billion miles while using the app. They've walked everywhere except into a job interview.
Jan. 3: Yesterday Donald Trump tweeted at North Korea after they announced plans to test an intercontinental nuclear weapon. Trump tweeted, "It won't happen." I'd like to believe he's right, but "It won't happen" is exactly what everyone said about Trump becoming president.
I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure you can't stop a nuclear missile by tweeting at it.
On New Year's Eve Trump tweeted: "Happy new year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don't know what to do. Love!" Enemies? The only people who admit to having "Enemies" are Donald Trump and 8th grade girls.
He yells at his enemies, then ends the tweet with the word "Love!" That's like getting a letter from your landlord that says, "I'm increasing the cost of your rent! Generosity!"
