ALL 41 SANTA CLARA CO. LINE-OF-DUTY DEATHS HONORED

Santa Clara County’s Fallen Police Officers Honored with Memorial

By Robert Salonga <rsalonga@bayareanewsgroup.com>
Mercury News — May 8, 2018


SAN JOSE — Forty-one seconds of silence passed on the police dispatch broadcast, one for every police officer in Santa Clara County history who gave their life in the line of duty.

Three Gilroy police officers led a riderless horse, with the boots affixed to reversed stirrups, a traditional gesture to honor a fallen soldier or leader.

Officers from all 13 police agencies in the county, along with a bevy of civic leaders and the surviving families, assembled Friday for a solemn remembrance of their past brethren who gave the ultimate sacrifice. The ceremony was held near the end of National Police Week.



Officers from all 13 police agencies in the Santa Clara
County gathered to honor the fallen officers Friday.


The first officer in the county to gain the somber distinction was Martin J. Roohan, a sheriff’s deputy killed on Oct. 23, 1862. The most recent was San Jose police Officer Michael Katherman, who died in a motorcycle crash on June 14, 2016.

At the Friday ceremony, county supervisor Cindy Chavez and State Sen. Jim Beall, a former supervisor, gave speeches on behalf of the county’s residents.

Surviving family members took time afterward to view a plaque wall adorned with the names of all 41 fallen officers.

To date, the agencies in the county that have experienced the loss of an officer in the line of duty are police from Palo Alto, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale and San Jose, as well as the Sheriff’s Office, California Highway Patrol and the Santa Clara County State Traffic Force, a CHP predecessor.

SERVICE THIS COMING SUNDAY FOR ERMA HERRMANN


This obituary for the widow of the late retired Lt. Kenny Herrmann is from last Saturday’s Mercury News…

Erma Nash Jackson Herrmann



April 8, 1940 - May 10, 2018
Resident of San Jose


Mrs. Erma Nash Jackson Herrmann, of San Jose, California, born on April 8, 1940 in Kingman, Kansas, to the late Opal J. Jackson and the late Dewey D. Jackson, passed away at age 78 on May 10, 2018. Erma was the beloved wife of the late Kenneth Herrmann. She is survived by her daughters, Lynne Moore and Norynne Spencer; brother, George Jackson; sister, Linda McElheny, and many nephews, nieces, grand nephews and grand nieces.

Erma’s life-long obsession was Genealogy, and she possessed a knowledge of history that was impressive to all. Erma was a world traveler, an avid San Jose Sharks fan, an accomplished bowler, a voracious reader, and lived life on her own terms. Erma was incredibly strong, very adventurous and wanted everyone to love, laugh and enjoy life. She faithfully supported Operation Freedom Paws, The Nicholas Gibbs Historical Society of Tennessee, and believed every child, without exception, should be given the best possible chance at a good life.

Friends and family members are invited to attend her
service on Sunday, May 27, at 11:30 a.m. at Los Gatos Memorial Park, 2255 Los Gatos Almaden Road, San Jose, California, 95124.

The family invites donations in Erma’s name to the cancer research organization of your choice, the San Jose Police Chaplaincy, and Operation Freedom Paws.


FORMER OFFICER GREGORY "KIRK" DAVIS



Badge 2766
Born June 1962
Appointed Jan. 1990
Resigned Sept. 1997
Died July 6, 2015


Kirk, who was the younger brother to retired Chief Rob Davis, was only with the Dept. for 7 years before he resigned and moved to Washington state where he accepted a job with Microsoft. He had earned a Bachelor’s degree from BYU in Organizational Design and a Master’s from San Francisco State.

While playing football at BYU back in the late ‘80s he discovered a lump under an arm that turned out to be Hodgkin’s Disease. Extensive radiation treatments that followed resulted in the cancer’s remission, but it is believed that the treatments were the cause of the lung cancer that would eventually take his life in July of 2015.

We were unaware of Kirk or his passing until a few days ago when we were advised by Chris Monahan (now a Capt. with the Piedmont PD) that his name was missing from the Memorial List that appeared in the last two editions of the Farsider. When Chris informed us that Kirk was Rob’s younger brother, we made contact with the retired Chief who provided us with Kirk’s photo and the info above.

Kirk is now a permanent name on the SJPD Memorial List.

Dear Member,
 
Please read the Mercury News report detailing some of the data collected about our department which was included in the IPA's 2017 annual report. The Mayor and Council will accept the report tomorrow. We should all be very proud of our performance last year and this year as well. Let's chalk up IPA Zisser's pessimism over our progress to the learning curve he is still navigating as he continues to learn about law enforcement.
 

SJPD Audit: Complaints down, feud over force findings

We will keep you up to speed on developments as they unfold.
 
Thanks,

Paul Kelly, President, SJPOA

Ed. — The Mercury News report referenced in the POA memo appears below in the Trials and Tribulations column…



May 22nd

The POA Office will be closed from
Tuesday, May 29th - Tuesday, June 4th
and will reopen on June 5th.


We are in the process of getting a new membership database. Ours is very old and we need to upgrade to ensure that your information is kept safe and accurate. Needless to say, this is going to be a very time consuming project. The completed project target date is August/September.

To start with, there will be a team of people coming out to go through our database from end to end; we will be showing them exactly what we need so that they can start the building process.

As I said, this beginning part is going to be the most important and time consuming part of the process, the faster we can get that phase completed, the less money it will cost us in the end. The only way for us to be able to give them our full attention is to close for the week.

If there is anything that cannot wait, please email me at
<joanne@sjpoa.com> and I will do my best to help you.

Thanks in advance for your understanding and cooperation.

Joanne, Executive Director
 
Please note that Monday, May 28th is the Memorial Day Holiday.

Members,
 
When a person in power abuses their position, it is incumbent on us to speak up. Former San Jose City Councilmember Pierluigi Oliverio was sued by his former aide of sexual harassment and for verbally berating and degrading her in the workplace.
 
We are speaking up to ensure the voters of Santa Clara County know exactly who they're voting for. We're asking you to help ensure voters get the message. If you're a Facebook user, go to the Protect San Jose page and like and share THIS video. It's also pinned as the first post to the page.

Oliverio's staffer stated under penalty of perjury that he made inappropriate comments such as "My mother expects us to have a baby together, and she would be thrilled if that happened." She also testified that he said, "You're so fu*king moody-just like a woman-a moody unpredictable bi#ch."
 
We have yet to hear Mr. Oliverio state that his former staff member is lying. Recently, he has referenced a secret non-disclosure settlement agreement signed with his former staff member to justify not directly addressing her accusations.  
 
Mr. Oliverio is unfit to serve our County. Help us make sure voters know why by sharing THIS post.

THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF SAN JOSE AND THE SJPD

SJPD Audit: Complaints Down, Feud Over Force Findings

—Yearly IPA report shows more sustained misconduct cases, push for mental health, DV emphasis—



San Jose police occupy the scene of an officer-involved
shooting on May 6, 2018. Police have agreed to compile
a yearly bulletin for the public outlining lessons they’ve
learned from officer-involved shootings in terms of
training, tactics and equipment.

By Robert Salonga <rsalonga@bayareanewsgroup.com>
Bay Area News Group — May 17, 2018


SAN JOSE — Though formal citizen complaints against the San Jose Police Department continue a steady downward trend, more officers are being disciplined for misconduct than at any point in the past decade, according to a new report from the city’s primary police watchdog.

Citizen complaints made to police or the civilian Office of the Independent Auditor totaled 222 in 2017, down 24 percent from 292 the year before and 38 percent less than the 357 in 2013, according to the IPA’s annual report. Grievances about arrests and use of force are also sharply down from previous years.

Yet within those decreasing figures is a rise in officer discipline, including the termination of two officers for conduct violations. At least one case appears to involve an officer arrested for allegedly leaking confidential police information to aid gang members.

The percentage of citizen complaints validated by police in 2017 was 16 percent, the highest rate since the oversight office was established in 1993, according to the IPA report. The vast majority of those allegations involved procedural and conduct violations.

And, for just the second time in SJPD history, police substantiated a bias complaint filed last year against an officer, the new report revealed. But unlike the first case in 2015, the new instance involved a racial element, specifically an officer “using several unflattering racial stereotypes related to Asians” while responding to a landlord-tenant dispute. Police also found that the officer denied the landlord — who is Vietnamese — an impartial translator.

“We’re really trying to hold a standard,” police Chief Eddie Garcia said. “This police department does discipline its own.”

Overall, the IPA agreed with police on 83 percent of the complaint resolutions that internal affairs investigators reached, and 73 percent of complaints involving force.

“We disagree at times, but always civilly,” said Aaron Zisser, the independent police auditor. “It’s important we continue to engage.”

A key disagreement brought into focus by the IPA report was a use-of-force finding indicating white suspects who resisted police were more likely to end up with no charges filed against them, and that of all suspects who were not charged after a confrontation, white suspects invariably were taken to psychiatric care as opposed to minority suspects who were taken to jail.

That particular finding was reached using the SJPD’s new public online use-of-force data dashboard, but Garcia contested the methodology, and said the conclusion was drawn from a sample size of fewer than 10 cases. Garcia also said it was based on a superficial examination of data and did not consider other reasons that would provide context like how those sent to the hospital exhibited psychiatric distress.

Garcia recalled how critics devalued a report based on the initial dashboard data that found no significant racial disparities in SJPD’s use of force, based on concerns about the data being single-sourced from officer’s reports. If that’s the case, he said, it would be hypocritical to use it to prove a less-favorable point.

“When the conclusion is positive, you can’t scream that it’s incomplete, but when it paints us negatively, say it’s good data,” Garcia said. “We’re not perfect. We know we have to get better. But to be mischaracterized like this is irresponsible.”

Zisser acknowledged there should have been a disclaimer about the sample size for that segment, and called for more data access for his office and the community.

“Because we don’t have full access to the underlying data, we don’t know what the person was arrested for. It’s a red flag for further discussion,” he said. “This is what the public sees.”

Andre Chapman, CEO of Unity Care and founder of the Black Leadership Kitchen Cabinet of Silicon Valley, voiced concern about the reliability of the data points used, but stressed the broader tendency of minorities to be treated like criminals rather than someone in a mental-health crisis.

“We don’t recognize how much anxiety and trauma going on in our communities, and it is never reviewed with a mental-health lens,” he said. “We’re overrepresented in jails, underrepresented in mental health (services). It’s not just the police, it’s society.”

Chapman added that SJPD is further along than other police agencies in recognizing this issue.

“They’re on the right road, building a culture around community policing and how people are valued,” he said.

Paul Kelly, president of the San Jose Police Officers’ Association, contends the report did not adequately recognize the department’s progress.

“Complaints against San Jose police officers are down dramatically, a fact that should be commended by the Independent Police Auditor and not simply dismissed as an unexplained aberration because it doesn’t fit his personal narrative,” Kelly said in a statement. “The fact is San Jose police officers are well-trained, in-tune with the community we serve and always exploring best practices to improve.”

The IPA report also drew attention to how six of the eight officer-involved shootings in San Jose in 2017 involved someone with a mental illness, and three of them died.

Mirroring a Santa Clara County civil grand jury report last week, the IPA’s office recommended officers undergo “refresher” courses in crisis training; whenever possible, bring severely distressed people to emergency psychiatric care rather than jail; and in cases when a struggling person doesn’t qualify for such transport, direct that person to mental-health resources.

“It’s very troubling to see people in crisis get shot by police. I have a great deal of sympathy for the officers, and it’s hard to see people get into these situations,” Zisser said.

SJPD is currently providing crisis-intervention training to every officer in its 1,000-plus police force and will soon have county-staffed field therapists clinicians available for critical incidents.

Garcia agreed with an IPA recommendation to begin issuing annual public memos outlining lessons learned from officer-involved shootings, and any significant changes to training, tactics and equipment.

Also released along with the IPA report was the police department’s annual report on department-initiated investigations, which covers complaints made against police officers and staff from within the agency, and are not subject to IPA review.

In 2017, the police department received 35 such complaints against sworn personnel, down from 43 the year before. Of the 78 allegations investigated — a complaint can contain multiple grievances — 60 percent were affirmed by internal affairs.

Most of the violations involved procedural rule-breaking and “conduct unbecoming of an officer,” a term used to cover ethical violations. Discipline mostly involved counseling and additional training.

A reserve officer was reprimanded for improperly using force when he put his foot on the back of the neck of someone he detained. Another officer was punished for calling in sick to attend a party where illegal fireworks were set off; and another consumed illegal drugs and lied about it to internal affairs investigators.

One incident that was classified as a procedural violation involved an officer firing his service weapon at a vehicle. It was not deemed a force violation because the use of force was not unlawful, but defied department policy, Garcia said.

And in an era of heightened awareness and advocacy for reporting of sexual and domestic violence, the IPA report called attention to SJPD’s understaffed family violence unit, which consists of a sergeant and two officers in a city that sees more than 3,000 domestic-violence reports each year.

Councilwoman Sylvia Arenas flagged the issue at a recent city budget study session.

“The (IPA) report includes data that shows sexual assaults have doubled in the last 10 years, a statistic that concerns me to the point of submitting a budget document to move police department personnel resources to the sexual assault unit,” Arenas said in a statement.

What all sides seem to agree on is how many of the shortcomings in police services are a function of staffing, as SJPD climbs out of a decade that saw the department shrink by a third.

“Everything is easier with more officers in the department and in the neighborhoods,” Mayor Sam Liccardo said. “We can better resource critical areas like domestic violence, and officers will have the time that ensures that nobody is cutting corners on a report before they race off to the next emergency.”

Am I the only one who is wondering when the KK BBQ became the Katherman Memorial BBQ? No disrespect intended, but I thought this event was to honor Keith Kelley and the club’s purpose for existence. it was originally intended to aid officers who may have experienced a sudden unforeseen financial need, and to provide assistance to certain charities on behalf of the membership. And lest we forget, it was named after a San Jose cop who gave his life in World War II. I suggest the membership be polled to see how it feels about this unauthorized name change.

Part of our founding documents: July 4, 1776  —  Declaration of Independence: We hold these truths to be sacred and undeniable; that all men are created equal and independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent and inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness...

(Ed. — I had to look that up. Turns out it was the beginning of Jefferson’s “original rough draft” of the Declaration of Independence.)

Bill,

Here we are again with another mass school shooting, student bodies down and dead. Weeping and sobbing — flowers and funerals; cards, candlelight vigils and lifetime scars. I'm not going to give the sermon about locked and loaded teachers, gun turret psychology, or armored student personnel shuttles etc. I'll just cut straight to the chase.

Students don't like being shot. People need to understand. Students do not like being targets, or being gunned down in their classrooms. Let's be clear also. They do not enjoy 'active shooter' drills, or being searched entering every building, or suffering from P.T.S.D, or going to funerals every other week. They don't care about which Amendment says what. They just want to feel safe. Be safe so they can thrive.

Think about it. Students go to school to learn, to grow and expand; not to be afraid, contract and duck and cover. They just want to live, and breath and be happy. They just want to go to class, be silly, and make new friends. Is that asking too much?

They would prefer not to wear bullet proof clothes, or have prison-like study halls, or armed guards at every door, or school yard drone surveillance. They do not want to live in constant fear, or be anxious at every turn, or see the psychologist every week, or learn how to set up campus triage centers. They're just kids. They just want to grow-up, have fun and make it to the senior prom without having a hunker-down bunker-down break down.

It's pretty simple really. They just want their chance at fulfilling the promise of inalienable rights  —  life... liberty... pursuit of happiness. That's not happening.
 
Take care,

Dave Scannell
<silent.eagle46@yahoo.com>

With all due respect, Dave, all you did was state the obvious. Of course students don’t WANT the things you stated, but until some sort of a miracle happens, they are going to have to deal with school shootings because there is absolutely nothing the government or any other entity can do to stop them. Nothing. Politicians and pundits will lay the blame on guns, drugs, bullying, video games and a host of other factors. But the truth is, school shootings will stay with us along with workplace shootings and occasional shooting sprees like the one at the gay nightclub in Orlando. They cannot be stopped without the surrender of many of our freedoms, and that isn’t about to happen in our lifetime.

BACKLASH OVER THE MULTI-MILLION DEAL THE OBAMAS STRUCK WITH NETFLIX

People Are Threatening to Boycott Netflix After the Obamas Signed a Deal with the Streaming Service


• Former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have signed a multiyear deal with Netflix to produce original shows.

• The conservative backlash on social media has already begun.

• Some are threatening to cancel their Netflix subscriptions over the news.

• It's not the first time: In March, many conservatives were outraged when former UN Ambassador Susan Rice joined Netflix's board of directors.

Business Insider — May 21, 2018


Former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have signed a deal with Netflix to produce original TV shows and movies, and the conservative backlash against the streaming service has already started.

Though Obama associates have said it's unlikely for the Netflix programs to be overtly partisan, there are still plenty of people on social media voicing their displeasure with the news — some threatening to cancel their Netflix subscription.

It's not the first time Netflix has faced conservative backlash. In March, Obama-era UN Ambassador Susan Rice joined the Netflix board of directors. Some subscribers were outraged because of inaccurate statements Rice made in 2012 after the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has also been critical of President Donald Trump in the past. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Hastings endorsed Hillary Clinton and said "Trump would destroy much of what is great about America."

"Hillary Clinton is the strong leader we need, and it's important that Trump lose by a landslide to reject what he stands for," Hastings said at the time.

Netflix tweeted on Monday that the Obamas "entered into a multi-year agreement to produce films and series for Netflix, potentially including scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries, and features."

Proof that a children should be seen, not heard



Received from Dirk Parsons


All  throughout dinner my wife's best friend's four-year-old daughter stared at me as I sat opposite her. The girl could hardly eat her food for staring.
 
I checked my shirt for spots, felt my face for food, and patted my hair in place, but nothing stopped her from staring at me.       
 
Finally I asked her, "Why are you staring at me?"
 
Everyone at the table had noticed her behavior, and the table went quiet, waiting for her response.
 
Finally, the little girl said, ”I’m just waiting to see how you drink like a fish!"

The Joy of Sex:



From the Archives


There are three women: One is engaged, one is a mistress, and the third one is married. They are in a cafe chatting about their relationships and decided to amaze their men. They agreed that they would all wear black leather corsets, stiletto heels and a mask over their eyes that evening.

After a few days they met up again for lunch at the cafe and the following conversation ensued.

The engaged woman said, "The other night when my boyfriend came over he found me with a black leather corset, tall stilettos and a mask. He saw me and said, 'You are the woman of my life. I love you.' Then we made love all night long."

The mistress said, "Me too! The other night I met my lover at his office and I was wearing the leather bodice, heels, mask over my eyes and a raincoat. When I opened the raincoat he didn't say a word, but we made mad passionate love for several hours."

The married woman said, "Well, I sent the kids to stay at my mother's house for the night. When my husband came home I was wearing the leather corset, black stockings, stilettos and a mask over my eyes. As soon as he came in the door and saw me standing in the hall, he said, 'What's for dinner, Batman?' "

Hole in the Fence



From the Archives


I was walking past the grounds of a mental hospital the other day and heard a bunch of patients shouting "13...13...13." I was curious about what was going on, but the fence was too high to see over. Then I spotted a hole in one of the planks and decided to sneak a peek. When I did, some bastard poked me in the eye with a stick, after which the patients began shouting "14...14...14."

THE BEST OF THE LATE NITE JOKES

—Reruns excluded—

May 16 — 22


May 16: Today over 2,000 pages of testimony were released about the 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer. The president heard and was like, "You lost me at 2,000 pages . . . and lost me again at Don Jr."

In the documents, Don Jr. admits he can’t remember if he discussed the Russia investigation with his dad. Meanwhile, his dad admits he can’t remember which one is Eric, and which one is Don Jr.

There’s talk that Kim Jong Un might back out of his meeting with President Trump. When asked why, Kim said, “Cuz Trump hears ‘Yanny’ and I hear ‘Laurel.’”

Kim Jong Un might cancel his meeting with Trump, where they were supposed to discuss North Korea's nuclear weapons. Trump was like, "How could someone just pull out of a nuclear agreement?" And Iran was like, "I know, it's crazy, right?"

The Royal wedding is just three days away! Which means in just three days, the world will finally get to see the queen do the Electric Slide.

Dunkin' Donuts is celebrating the Royal wedding by offering a heart-shaped donut, and Chili's is offering special burger-inspired hats. Which explains our new slogan: "America: We Don't Understand Royalty."

There’s a restaurant in New York that’s now serving hummus smoothies. They have zero calories because you suck so hard on the straw you pass out.

A new survey found that Green Bay, Wisconsin, is the drunkest city in the U.S. You can tell, cuz no one in Green Bay remembers answering that survey.

May 17: Today is the one-year anniversary of the start of Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. President Trump celebrated the way he honors all his anniversaries — he forgot.

The royal wedding is this Saturday. After the ceremony, Harry and Meghan will ride around in a carriage to wave at the public. While the guests will be back at the reception going, “When the hell are they going feed us?”

A lot of celebrities are going to be at the royal wedding this weekend, like Serena Williams and the Spice Girls. But Yanni had to RSVP no. He said, “I think I got the invitation by mistake. This envelope was addressed to Laurel.”

Levi’s just released a smart jacket that lets you know when your Uber arrives. It’s great for people who love to have all the latest gadgets — except a phone.

May 21: Saturday was Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. Millions of Americans woke up at 4 a.m., turned on the royal wedding and thought, “Wait, what am I doing with my life?”

Thousands of people filled the streets to cheer for Prince Harry and Meghan. Meanwhile, Prince William was like, “You guys know I’m the one who’s going to be king, right? I’m kind of a big deal too.”

Oprah was at the royal wedding, and the day before, she changed her dress when she realized it was too close to white. Because it’s rude to upstage the bride by wearing white when you’re already upstaging the bride by being Oprah.

Prince Harry didn’t shave before the wedding. He was going to, but his brother was like, “Dude, if you’ve got hair, keep it. Trust me.”

I heard the royal wedding reception was a lot of fun. Apparently, Elton John performed “Circle of Life” from “The Lion King.” Then Prince Charles did a very drunken performance of “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King.”

Meanwhile, back in Washington today, President Trump went to the swearing-in ceremony for new CIA director Gina Haspel. In her speech she said, “We can’t rest on our laurels.” Then Trump chimed in and said, “Or our Yannys.”

The Trump administration is trying to stop leaks by allowing fewer people into White House meetings. The president loved the idea until he found out that he’s one of the people no longer allowed in the meetings.

May 22: Today, President Trump said his big meeting with Kim Jong Un might not happen. Trump and Kim have been going back and forth over where to meet and who will be there. Even friends group-texting about brunch were like, "Make a decision already, I mean, come on!"

The meeting might get called off. Apparently, Kim Jong Un didn't like Trump's idea of the two of them riding through the streets in a horse-drawn carriage.

But Trump wants the meeting to take place. He said if Kim Jong Un agrees to meet, he can guarantee Kim's safety. Trump promises to test Kim's food before he eats it and keep testing it until it's totally gone.

White House aides have told Trump to switch out his cellphone on a monthly basis, but he says it's too inconvenient. Trump's like, "The only thing I switch out on a monthly basis is my staff.”


May 21: Starbucks announced that people may sit at their tables and use the bathroom even if they don’t purchase anything. Starbucks said, “If just one person buys a venti latte, our costs are covered for the year.”

Former President Obama and Mrs. Obama have just signed a multi-year deal with Netflix. Meanwhile, President Trump has just signed a multi-year deal with Melania.

Some royal wedding guests are already selling their gift bags on eBay. In fact, today Queen Elizabeth made 60 bucks.

Fun fact, if six members of the royal family die, Meghan Markle would become the queen of England. Second fun fact, that used to be Prince Harry’s pick-up line.

Actor Hugh Grant is marrying the mother of his three children. This news comes as a shock to the mother of his four children.

The NYPD is investigating allegations of sexual misconduct against celebrity chef Mario Batali. They’re also investigating Guy Fieri for crimes against the human colon.

A man was arrested for urinating on a seat during a Frontier Airlines flight. It’s the first time anyone has ever associated Frontier Airlines with number one.

May 22: A sinkhole has opened up on the White House lawn. So apparently, another one of Melania's tunnels collapsed.

President Trump has demanded that Congress investigate the special prosecutor who is investigating him. Trump's remarks were published in this morning's issue of "Things Innocent People Say."

President Trump met with the president of South Korea to discuss North Korea. The meeting consisted of five minutes about nuclear weapons, and 90 minutes of Trump saying, "So wait – which Korea are you again?"

The U.S. Postal Service announced that they will release their first scratch-and-sniff stamps. That explains why they’ve canceled their "Salute to Kid Rock."


May 16: According to a new study, millennials are waiting longer to have sex. Because, unlike my generation, they have to watch a 30-second ad first.

American Airlines has announced that beginning this July, passengers will not be allowed to bring emotional support hedgehogs, goats, or spiders on flights. Or as Southwest calls them, “Group 2.”

Police in Germany recently spent nine hours using a crane to lift an escaped water buffalo from a highway. Said the water buffalo, “I GET it, I’m FAT.”

May 17: Today was the one-year anniversary of the Russia investigation, and President Trump marked the occasion by tweeting, “Congratulations, America, we are now into the second year of the greatest witch hunt in American history.” I gotta say, I’m excited because season two is when they start killing off the characters nobody likes.

According to The New York Times, a TV show featuring Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti and former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci was recently pitched to two cable networks. The show is called “The Very Good Lawyer and Anthony Scaramucci.”

The White House announced today that President Trump would donate his first quarter’s salary to the Department of Veterans Affairs. It’s just a little less money than he’s given to veterans of his affairs.

The CDC has announced that romaine lettuce is safe to eat again. So, I guess that’s what passes for good news these days. Romaine’s back!

IKEA’s launching a new credit card that offers rewards and perks for frequent customers, but it is a bitch to put together!

Scientists claim to have succeeded transplanting a memory from the brain of one sea snail and implanting it into another. Or, more likely, snails live pretty similar lives.

May 22: President Trump said today that if North Korea agrees to denuclearize he can guarantee leader Kim Jong Un's safety, saying, "He will be safe, he will be happy, his country will be rich." Wait a minute. Why does he get a better deal than we do?

He'll be safe, happy, and rich — are you a negotiator or a genie?

After announcing that people no longer need to make a purchase to use the bathroom, Starbucks clarified the policy and said the spaces should be used "as intended." Though if you've ever been in a Starbucks bathroom, you know no one is using them as intended.

Hasbro has filed to trademark the scent of Play-Doh. Hasbro describes the scent as a "sweet, slightly musky vanilla fragrance with slight overtones of cherry, combined with the smell of a salted wheat-based dough." While kids are describing it as "delicious."


May 16: Another major corporation has been hacked. Customer information has been compromised in a recent data breach at the restaurant chain Chili's. Chili's customers were furious, they were like, "I want my data back, data back, data back..."

It's bad that they have my credit card information. It's even worse that they now know I've eaten over 25,000 Chicken Crispers in my life.

Chili's is addressing the problem. Meanwhile, dads everywhere are suddenly very concerned about the level of data security at their neighborhood Hooters.

A coffee company has recalled 65,000 cans of coffee beans over concerns that opening them could cause the lids to fly off and hit people in the face. Although, it saves you a step. Usually you have to drink the coffee to wake up in the morning, but this will take care of that.

The coffee company is really trying to put a positive spin on the story. They're marketing this as their brand-new drink, the “Slappuccino.”

May 17: Today marks the one-year anniversary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. This morning, Donald Trump marked the occasion by tweeting: “Congratulations America, we are now into the second year of the greatest witch hunt in American history... And there is still no collusion and no obstruction.” When Melania saw the tweet she was like, “Oh, so you are capable of remembering anniversaries?”

Trump’s communicating like your passive aggressive roommate who leaves a note on the dishes in the sink. “Congratulations, Lisa, we are now into the second year of the greatest dirty dish pile-up in this apartment’s history. P.S. Glad to see you’re enjoying my new shampoo.”

In other Trump news, the president’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani continues to give troublesome interviews. Last night on Fox News, Giuliani said that Trump couldn’t have colluded with the Russians, because if they had given him dirt on Hillary, he would have used it. Never a good sign when your lawyer’s defense is, “Your honor, my clients tried to commit a treasonous crime, but they were too stupid to actually pull it off.”

According to a new report, some middle-class women have started hosting dinner parties around a new trend called “brieing.” Brieing is where the women consume the drug MDMA, also known as Molly, wrapped in brie cheese. It’s about time hiding drugs in soft cheeses wasn’t just for the family dog.

Coincidentally, brie and Molly are also the names of most of the women that are doing this. To middle-class women brieing is a fun time. To the rest of society, this is known as a Class-A misdemeanor.

May 22: There was some breaking news today from the nation's capital. Apparently, a sinkhole has just appeared on the North Lawn of the White House. Well, you can't fault Mother Nature for trying.

I hope Trump has some success filling this hole, because he definitely hasn’t filled the one left by Obama.

Meanwhile, Melania's like, "Oh, no, they've discovered my escape tunnel!"

In anticipation of the upcoming meeting between Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the U.S. government has minted a commemorative coin. It's the only coin in history where if you flip it, no matter what side it lands on, everyone loses.

This morning, Trump told reporters that the planned meeting with Kim Jong Un "may not work out," adding, "If it doesn't happen, maybe it will happen later." They made a commemorative coin for something that may not happen. That's like the Cleveland Browns making rings that say, "Super Bowl Champions Eventually. Someday. Maybe. Who Knows?"

The U.S. Postal Service announced on Monday that it will soon issue its first scratch-and-sniff stamps. Finally, a stamp that smells like a real bald eagle.

The stamps will come in scents like strawberry, orange, and chocolate. What a delightful, fun, and interactive way to find out you're being evicted from your apartment.

This week AT&T announced that later this year they will start selling a smartphone that will feature a holographic display that projects 3D images that can be seen from the sides and from behind. And even more exciting, you still won't get reception in your kitchen.


May 21: Donald Trump is obsessed with his staff leaking information. You know how I know that? His staff leaked that information to The New York Times.

Trump is now determined to stop it at all costs. In fact, West Wing aides are instructed to drop their personal phones into a small storage locker when they come to work. Wait a second! They’re taking away the phones of everyone except Donald Trump? How does that work? How does that help? That’s like saying no one can bring knives to work, except you, O.J.

If that sounds paranoid it’s only because it is. Former Trump aides say the president thrives on a sense of dominance and control of his environment, so much so that he has a longtime fear of having his food contaminated. Yes, for good reason. Once he was eating what he thought was a safe meal, and he found a vegetable in there.

And the behavior of some of his staff has been extreme, including the junior aide who was found to be taping meetings with Mr. Trump and playing them to impress friends. Really? I find it hard to believe that someone who works in the Trump administration still has friends.

THE LIGHTER SIDE AND OTHER ODDS AND ENDS

 


Is there no decency or respect left on this planet anymore? What the Bad Lip Reading crew created from excerpts of the Royal Wedding would be criminal if it wasn’t so damn funny! Click HERE to see this clip received from Dirk Parsons. (3:39)




• • • • •

Saturday Night Live featured a Royal Wedding skit, but those of us who miss the old SNL found it lacking. What do you THINK? (5:51)







An example of the “old SNL” that we miss is THIS “Point/Counterpoint” clip featuring Dan Ackroyd and Jane Curtain from Season 4 that aired in 1979. (2:16)






This clip purports to explain the science behind the Yanny vs. Laurel question that was all over the radio, TV and social media last week. I heard Yanny; what did YOU hear? (2:58)




• • • • •



Stanley Roberts of KRON’s “People Behaving Badly” series showed up at the Bay to Breakers race with his cameraman in tow. What they saw wasn’t PRETTY. (2:50)




• • • • •

Are those delicious Costco hot dogs good for you? This clip may not only surprise you, it may make you want to run out to your nearest Costco and GRAB the $1.50 dog and drink for lunch. (3:36)












Ever wonder what China’s version of “Las Vegas” looks like? As the title of this clip says, it’s a city where anything goes. Literally ANYTHING! (5:43)




• • • • •


There is only one way to describe this so-called sport: INSANITY. As wing suit videos go, this one is at the top of the heap. However, everyone pictured below met his demise as a result of this hobby, sport, pastime, call it what you will. And they are just the tip of the iceberg. (6:17)




• • • • •



Feeling over the hill in your late 60s? This 68-year-old lady who appeared on Britain’s Got Talent wasn’t. WATCH her strut her stuff as she travels down the “Highway to Hell” and surprise the judges as well as the audience. (5:08)




• • • • •



This Hope for Paws rescue is about Miley who was in poor shape and living in a rubbish pile. It’s a before-and-after video clip showing how Miley was doing a year after his rescue. Eldad, who is usually behind the camera, is seen at the beginning of THIS video. (5:50)



~ ~ ~


Lisa and Loreta responded to a report of an injured Pit Bull that was scared of rescuers, but a delicious cheeseburger gave him the courage and desire he needed to SURRENDER to the two girls. (2:10)



~ ~ ~


Kittens also have paws, and that’s what this Hope for Paws rescue is about. There were five kittens that would not have SURVIVED if Eldad and Loreta had not responded. (4:35)

Here is a dog that doesn’t need rescuing. What needs to be rescued is any human it might be after. Click HERE and check out this amazing pooch. (3:07)




• • • • •







What do you suppose would happen if some force in the universe was to pull a chain that would turn off the Sun? In short, THIS. (7:13)





Remember when late night talk show hosts like Johnny Carson could have fun with POTUS without being mean or disrespectful? Bill Leavy and Pete Guerin do, and so do I. As the late Ed McMahon was fond of saying, HEREEE’S Johnny… (3:53)

 




• • • • •

 

I also remember the good old days when Tom Macris — my Cops-a-Field cartoon partner — was on track to becoming the official San Jose Police Artist. THIS resembles one of his first Macrisketches that preceded his fame as one of the top police artists in the nation. (1:30)

 











This is a special closer in honor of Memorial Day. It combines the Stars Who Served with Arthur Fiedler's Boston Pops playing John Phillip Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever." You might even hear Bob Hope round out the entry with “Thanks for the Memories.” Trust us, you will not want to pass this by, so click HERE, sit back and enjoy. ((11:33)
