A Message from your President...

I want to make sure that all of our members are updated about subjects covered at this morning's General Membership Meeting.  I had hoped to tell you that settlement of the Measure B calamity was close and that City Hall had proposed a competitive wage offer for us to consider. As of today, unfortunately, I can do neither.

I started my report to the assembled members by quoting my March Vanguard article.  It was titled "Waiting for the City to Get Real" and I talked about how the City had yet to honestly confront San Jose's competitiveness deficit.  Our officers live and breathe this Department; their pride in it remains strong, despite what Chuck Reed and his acolytes have done to it.  But the exodus of our fellow brethren continues unabated. Five months into the new year, the City hasn't give us any hope that anything is going to change anytime soon.

My March article discussed how our organization would not survive if the City did not do something dramatic immediately.  That was THREE MONTHS ago.

I turned next to the Mayor's June Budget Message for Fiscal Year 2015-2016, which was released this past Friday.  The Mayor allocated funds to try and recruit new police officers-but allocated nothing to retain those of us that are still here.  It is common knowledge that many of you are right now considering opportunities elsewhere.  It is also common knowledge that by moving to almost any other Bay Area agency you are likely to see a dramatic increase in the pay you take home to your family.

We have been telling the City this for years.  They either don't believe us or don't care, but the numbers don't lie: From January 2015 to the end of May 2015 there have been 32 Resignations and 37 Retirements.  13 officers have either resigned or retired EVERY month this year. At this pace the  annualized calendar year 2015 exodus will reach 165 officers.  That is 50 more than last year.  Those are astounding numbers.  They signal the death spiral of our department.

Even under best case scenarios (and there are few left in San Jose) the graduating classes for all 3 academies this year project to produce only 46 new hires.

This means a net LOSS of 119 officers.  

I was brutally honest with our members this morning.  The City's negotiating team is working hard and we appreciate their hard work and the new tone they have set.  But City Hall is showing no leadership.  It's business as usual.  So far the Mayor's speeches about making your pay competitive feel like empty promises.

The question is will the City step up and do something before it is too late?  This morning I told the members present that we have a couple of weeks to find out.

Stay tuned and be safe.

Respectfully,

Paul Kelly

San Jose Mayor Offers Revised Plan

—New budget focuses on police, roads, technology—

By Ramona Giwargis <rgiwargis@mercurynews.com>
Mercury News — May 30, 2015

SAN JOSE — Mayor Sam Liccardo released revised city budget recommendations Friday that bolster spending on police hiring, new technology and fixing San Jose roads. “We think targeted investment in each of these areas will pay in the long run,” Liccardo said during a news conference. “And this budget really reflects a focus on that long view.”

The June budget message is the final spending plan from the mayor’s office. The City Council will consider adopting the budget on June 9.

Liccardo’s recommendations incorporated feedback from a series of study sessions, community workshops and more than 80 budget requests from the council members. While he can’t please everyone, Liccardo’s budget appeared to win support from some council members after its release late Friday. “I am very encouraged by the mayor’s support for restoring neighborhood services and funding programs that extend opportunity to those most in need,” said Councilman Donald Rocha. Public safety was a major theme of Liccardo’s budget, including a $6.5 million allocation for recruiting and hiring police officers. Liccardo said the $6.5 million will help pay for the salaries and benefits of new officers hired to fill vacancies on the police force. Tom Saggau, a spokesman for the San Jose Police Officers Association, said higher salaries alone won’t address the underlying reason officers are running for the door — pension reforms under Measure B. “Unless there’s a complete overhaul of the failed Measure B that accompanies pay increases to make San Jose a competitive employer, police officers will continue to leave for jurisdictions that pay more and don’t offer the lowest retirement benefits in the entire state,” Saggau said.

The mayor’s budget also includes investments in high-tech public safety tools, such as body cameras, facial-recognition software, a pawn-slip database and license plate readers. Also new to the budget released Friday — an $8 million increase in the level of funding for street paving and repair. That number represents a 50 percent increase from the city manager’s operating budget, released earlier this month. Councilman Johnny Khamis said he advocated for pavement maintenance and he’s pleased with the additional $8 million Liccardo has proposed.

The June budget carries over some recommendations made by the mayor in March: opening the libraries six days a week, hiring more community resource officers, investing in traffic calming improvements and launching San Jose Works, a program to put at-risk youth to work. A public hearing on the budget will be held June 8 before the council considers adoption the next day.

It sounds to us that Raj Jayadev (common spelling) is tossing his name in the hat to replace LaDoris Cordell as the City's Independent Police Auditor. Given his view that the "Police Auditor needs more power" in the article below, that is the last thing the Dept. needs given the ongoing exodus of cops as a result of Measure B and other issues, including the oversight of the IPA. JoeMac spent his entire tenure as head of the Dept. fending off civilian oversight of the SJPD. Unfortunately, the political clout and connections necessary to keep the lid on civilian oversight in San Jose are virtually non-existent with the current chief when compared to the late Joe McNamara.   
 

San Jose’s Police Auditor Needs More Power

By Raj Jayadev
Mercury News — June 1, 2015

After five years, Judge LaDoris Cordell is stepping down as San Jose’s Independent Police Auditor. Despite the limited powers of her office, her work undeniably has recalibrated the city toward transparency and sunshine.

We now have a racial profiling detention data collecting policy, we have body worn cameras finally on the way, and San Jose has been able to have public policy discussions around police accountability informed with data driven analysis rather than anecdotes.

As the judge steps down, we are entering arguably the most fluid, even combustible moment in recent history for San Jose police-community relations. The national cauldron around race and police has boiled over, and San Jose is not exempt from the tension. The data from detention stops from 2014 are deeply troubling and call for forward-thinking policies to deal with racial profiling.

Selecting the next IPA is critically important. But given the moment of possibility we are in as a city and a nation, the question is not only who will be the captain of the ship, but also how well equipped we think the ship should be.

To build a culture of confidence that San Jose takes accountability seriously, the IPA office needs more teeth.

While Blacks and Latinos comprise a third of the population in San Jose, they made up more than two-thirds of pedestrian and traffics stops in 2014. The irony is that despite the disproportional detention stops, not a single citizen complaint of racial bias has been sustained in the 22-year history of civilian oversight in San Jose.

As someone who has walked people into the IPA office to file complaints, I find it a challenge to build trust in the process. Explaining what the office can do, or more aptly can’t do, is counter intuitive. Most people reasonably assume that an independent oversight body would be able to investigate complaints, but not so. People also assume the IPA has a say in disciplining officers — again, swing and a miss.

Of course, like many offices born out of a political outcry, the scope of the IPA office was the result of a negotiation in the early 1990s. The public originally wanted a civilian review board with greater powers. The middle ground was our current Independent Police Auditor’s Office. Since it’s inception, IPAs (there have been four) have tried to have tangible impact through issuing annual reports, raising red-flags when the police department’s internal affairs investigations felt inadequate and offering policy suggestions.

The repeated argument I hear against expanding the powers of the office is not whether it will be useful or not, but rather that it will be just too hard to do, as it would require a change in the city’s charter. “Too hard” to try should not be the barrier when the stakes are this high.

Besides, there are evolutions that can take place without changing the city charter. Cordell talks about staffing civilians at Internal Affairs to conduct the interviews and produce the analyses, as an example, instead of or in addition to having officers investigate their colleagues.

San Jose profoundly understands the notion of evolving technology. Imagine if it were using the same communication systems it had in place in the 90s. No one wants to be using beepers in the era of iPhones.

It is time our “technology” for civilian oversight is upgraded. With Cordell’s imminent departure, this is the challenge and opportunity.

Raj Jayadev is director of Silicon Valley De-Bug, a community organizing and advocacy organization based in San Jose. He wrote this for this newspaper.

 This letter from an apparent member of the LaDoris Cordell fan club in Monday’s paper also caught our eye…


Auditor Should Have Hand in PD Cameras

Letter to the Editor
Mercury News — June 1, 2015

It was disturbing reading that the San Jose Police Officers Association vice president is choosing to bypass the police auditor while setting rules for implementing body camera usage. Sure, it is uncomfortable being accountable to an auditor, but auditors have their purpose. LaDoris Cordell is right on when she says “the police are policing themselves, that’s not how it should work” I personally believe the San Jose police officers conduct themselves professionally. I would have expected the department to overwhelmingly approve and encourage full usage of body cameras.

When usage is confined to what amounts to discretion, it sends the wrong message to those apprehensive about possible police misconduct.

Dwight G. Black, San Jose

And this letter from another member of Cordell's fan club (or a close relative of hers) that was in today’s paper gave us an idea: Sunnyvale should hire the retiring San Jose Police Auditor and let the SVDPS deal with her…

When LaDoris Cordell Retires, We All Lose

Letter to the Editor
Mercury News — June 4, 2015

There is no replacement for LaDoris Cordell as Independent Police Auditor. Who else can be as clear, as precise and as honest? Who will protect fairness for all of us?

Black and brown may lead the parade on the unfairness from those who are paid to protect, but there is plenty of unfairness to go around for the rest of us. Unless a video is taken, those protectors are right time after time, because there is no one there like LaDoris Cordell. When she retires, the risk is it’s back to the good old boys’ club.

Susan Kuhl, Sunnyvale

In our day it was Wigsy Silverstein who caused the rank and file to clinch their jaws. For the past several years it has been Independent Police Auditor LaDoris Cordell who is constantly speaking out about police bias, yet one could make an excellent argument that she is significantly biased herself, but against the police. Be that as it may, it looks like she is getting in some last punches before she leaves City employment...

Statewide Data Collection on Police Stops is Needed

By LaDoris H. Cordell
Mercury News — June 2, 2015

For years, residents of San Jose voiced concerns that Latino and black residents had encounters with police officers that differed greatly from the experiences of white residents. As San Jose’s independent police auditor, I took their concerns to heart and understood that knowing the facts was the first step in addressing this concern.

In 2014, the San Jose Police Department began collecting information about police stops of pedestrians and drivers in response to a recommendation from our office. This data included basic demographic information such as race, age and gender and information about the reasons for the stops.

An initial analysis of this data has shown that we have reason for concern. Police officers appear to stop, frisk and search black and Latino residents more frequently than whites and Asian-Americans.

Although black and Latino residents are a third of San Jose’s population, they are almost two-thirds of the individuals stopped in 2014. This information has propelled the community to engage in an honest and informed conversation with the police about race, policing and bias.

Concerns about policing are not unique to San Jose. In light of the recent deaths of unarmed black and brown men and women throughout the country, it is fair to say that public confidence in law enforcement is in crisis. And although national attention has focused on Missouri, New York and Maryland, California is not exempt.

A recent poll found that 55 percent of California voters agree that black and brown Californians do not receive equal treatment in the criminal justice system. Among the state’s African- Americans, an overwhelming 85 percent agreed.

Several recent studies have demonstrated that all of us are subject to unconscious racial bias. Sadly, it’s a part of the human condition. But, unlike the rest of us, when police officers are influenced by unconscious bias, the impact upon those they stop can have deadly consequences.

To understand the roles that bias and race play in policing, we must first understand how the police are conducting themselves in the community. Although a few police departments, including San Jose, gather some of this information, there is no statewide requirement to collect, analyze or make available to the public basic information about whom police officers stop and search or when they use force.

As Californians demand reforms in the criminal justice system generally, and policing specifically, it is long past time to look the problem straight in the eye.

Assemblywoman Shirley Weber, D-San Diego, has done that by introducing AB 953 to require statewide collection of data about police stops, searches and seizures.

Passage of AB 953 will put us on the path to fairer policing.

Some have complained that requiring police officers to collect data about their stops will unfairly impose burdensome paperwork upon them. However, the San Jose Police Department has demonstrated that the gathering of this information is doable and not unduly time-consuming for our officers.

Statewide data collection of police stops mandated by AB 953 is the starting point. Once we understand what is happening on the streets, we can go forward together — police and community — to balance public safety and the right all Californians to be treated with dignity and respect.

LaDoris H. Cordell is a retired San Clara County Superior Court judge and San Jose’s independent police auditor. She wrote this for this newspaper.

Ed. — In this asinine world of political correctness, just once I would like to see someone in the public arena suggest that the reason police have more contact with Latinos and blacks is that they commit more crimes than whites, Asians and other races.

The person interviewed stating opposition to an armored vehicle is a good example of the type of person I described in my blurb. He is against it. That is, until it's him or his family who needs the rescuing or protection, then watch his tune change instantly. The problem here is that folks like this man and the young girls shouting are rarely if ever engaged one-on-one and asked to explain and defend their statements. Instead, elected officials who can't articulate an excuse for a bathroom break decide to remain mute permitting the uninformed citizen to have their way on crucial decisions. Why? What are they afraid of? Answers please!

Hello Bill & Leroy,

I just received the sad news that Dennis Radabaugh recently passed away.

I know everyone who was on the department in the 70’s and early 80’s will remember Dennis as he would be difficult to forget; such a big, strong good looking guy who didn’t put up with any crap. There was also another side of Dennis that many never saw. He wasn’t just a tough cop, he was an intellect and a good friend. Dennis read quite extensively about psychology and about the sociological component of the community and police work. Sometimes I thought he may have gotten too deep into the whole thing when I saw him at work with what I called a “man purse.” I would razz Dennis about it and he took the ribbing in stride; I don’t think there was anyone else on the department that could have gotten away with carrying one of those things. (I have to admit, it seemed pretty handy). Dennis moved to New York several years ago and went back to college where he completed his Masters Degree which he used in his new career.

I spoke with Dennis just a few weeks ago by phone and he was in great spirits, despite his lengthy battle with cancer. Dennis discovered he had prostate cancer about eight years ago and had major surgery, which everyone hoped would provide him with a full recovery. The cancer came back and Dennis was undergoing treatment until recently when he was diagnosed to be terminal. He talked about coming out to San Diego (one of his favorite places) in the spring and wanted to visit with some of the “old guys” if possible. Dennis knew he would not be making the trip, but he kept his spirits and great wit. During our lengthy conversation we both had some great laughs. He showed a lot of class and dignity in the manner he dealt with his diagnosis. Realizing his mortality, Dennis knew it could only be weeks, but he lived life till the end.

Phil Pitts, 1553 (Ret.) <dapits@pacbell.net>

We replied to Phil’s email asking if he knew when Dennis died and in what city he was living in when he passed. We were hoping we could locate an obituary, but no reply was received as of press time. We did learn that Dennis was appointed to the Dept. in Sept 1969, resigned in Sept. 1978, and that he was assigned badge 1414. If our memory is correct, he was married to Sandy Radabaugh at some point in time. (The Personnel List at the back of the 1983 SJPD Commemorative Album shows a Sandra E. Radabaugh, badge 1850, just under Dennis’ name. Neither of their photos appear in the album.)

Yes, I do remember John Marlo. I remember him as a Police Officer and as a Judge on the Santa Cruz County Superior Court. I handled only one case in his court as an attorney and appreciated his fairness and even-handed approach to a difficult Family Law case. May he rest in peace.

Hi Bill,

Hope all is well. I happened to catch this hour-long program on PBS the other night. It was amazing, truly amazing. I am not sure I can provide the proper words as to the drama that unfolded under the surface of the “Cuban Missile Crisis.” I had no idea that the entire human race was saved by one gutsy Russian Naval Officer, who said “No.”

Four Russian submarines — loaded with nuclear torpedoes with only the Captains orders needed to fire — were sitting off the coast of Cuba. President Kennedy had the U.S. Naval fleet surrounding Cuba in what he termed a quarantine, but was actually a blockade. American ships of all sorts and sizes maneuvered all over the Saragossa sea were hunting and listening. The might U.S. Navy challenged the equally mighty Soviets, and the Russians continued to push forward at all costs. High, high drama. Both countries had their fingers on the nuclear triggers ready to blow the whole earth apart. Devcon 2. Both sides were locked and loaded. One blink on the hair trigger and the world be be no more.

In all the confusion, one of the Russian sub commander's gave the order to fire. Following nuclear protocol he got the OK from his executive officer and both keys were inserted into the firing mechanism and turned. He only needed the OK from a third officer (the Political officer) and the torpedo would be away. After that would come the end of the U.S. Naval forces in the Atlantic, and everybody would start shooting. Nothing on this earth would be left. But the Political officer held his ground and would not consent. An argument and shouting match ensued between all three officers. But he held his ground, and in the end, Russian sub did not fire. And because of one man’s restraint, all of humanity (such as it is) was saved.

THE BEST OF THE LATE NITE JOKES

June 1-2

June 1: For the second year in a row, the Scripps National Spelling Bee ended in a tie with two winners. Or as each of their parents put it to their kids, “I told you that you shouldn’t have gone outside to play that one time.”

Kim Kardashian announced that she and Kanye West are expecting their second child. They say they don’t care whether it’s a boy or girl just as long as it’s famous.

During a speech in Iowa this weekend, Bernie Sanders criticized the billionaire class and said they “can’t have it all.” Billionaires would've responded but they were busy this weekend literally having it all.

Officials from the soccer organization FIFA, which decides which cities get to host the World Cup, are accused of accepting bribes when making their decision. Of course the toughest part for the soccer officials was taking bribes without using their hands.

June 2: In the world of soccer, FIFA President Sepp Blatter announced he's resigning only four days after he was re-elected. Now Sepp Blatter will go back to sounding like a disease you look up on WebMD.

The 79-year-old FIFA president, Sepp Blatter, will resign less than a week after the organization was rocked by a corruption scandal. But if you only learned one thing from all this, it's that you can never trust a 79-year-old Blatter.

According to an email from his staff, Donald Trump is set to announce on June 16 whether he will run for president. Seriously? At this point, Donald Trump announcing whether he’s running for president is like soccer’s World Cup — it happens every four years and no one in America cares.

Hillary Clinton announced that she will officially kick off her presidential campaign on June 13 in New York City. The good news is it's free to get in. Which sounds great until you find out it's $100,000 to get out.

June 1: Kim Kardashian announced that she's pregnant again. Kim said it's been a difficult pregnancy. She wakes up in the middle of the night craving publicity.

A lawyer from Africa wants to marry Malia Obama in exchange for goats, sheep, and cows. In response, President Obama said, "Don't be ridiculous. My daughter isn't marrying a lawyer."

There's massive corruption, a massive scandal, in international soccer. The first clue was when a soccer team scored a suspiciously high three goals in one game.

In Michigan, the world's oldest person recently turned 116. When the president called to congratulate her, she said, "Tell McKinley I'm busy."

June 2: The TSA is under fire for major security lapses. The TSA has let through pipe bombs, knives, and the last three Nicolas Cage movies.

In a recent interview, the Pope revealed he doesn't use the Internet and he hasn't watched television since 1990. Then he announced his plan to make Bill Cosby a saint.

Basketball commentator Charles Barkley said he'd like to shoot sports fans who act like jerks. Barkley was then reprimanded by the NBA and recruited by the NFL.

The Grateful Dead are putting out an 80-disc live performance box set. No word yet on which Grateful Dead song it will be.

June 1: The big story today involves the athlete formerly known as Bruce Jenner. His female identity has been revealed as Caitlyn Jenner. And she's spelling Caitlyn with a "C" instead of a "K" — which is a slap in the face to the Kardashians.

Congratulations are in order for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. They are expecting their second child. It will be the second time that Kim has participated in any real labor.

It's possible that Kim's baby was conceived the night Bruce Jenner went on TV with Diane Sawyer, which would be weird.

June 2: Yesterday New Jersey got four inches of rain. In Newark there were fish in the street. Some people came out to catch them and eat them. Officials had to issue a warning not to eat the fish. If you have to be reminded not to eat fish that washed up on the street in Newark, I think we'd be OK without you.

Every year we invite the kids who win the Scripps National Spelling Bee to be on the show. We don't invite them to congratulate them. We invite them to be shellacked by me. I now have two little spirits to crush.

The spelling bee co-champions are Vanya Shivashankar and Gokul Venkatachalam. They won the competition by spelling each other's names correctly.

Winning the spelling bee is a big deal. You get to hear your name mispronounced by every newscaster in America.

June 1: Today is the first official day of the 2015 hurricane season. And this is amazing — the New York Knicks have already been eliminated.

Officials near Dallas are reporting that torrential rain and recent flooding has started driving snakes to attack people. Wow, Texans don’t just read the Bible, they’re living it.

June 2: In the world of soccer, after the arrest of numerous other officials, FIFA President Sepp Blatter announced his resignation this afternoon. Sepp Blatter doesn't sound like the name of a guy who's stepping down. It sounds like the reason.

Senator Lindsey Graham announced that he's running for president because, you know, you want 50 people to run for president.

If elected, Lindsey Graham would be the first bachelor elected president in 130 years. And he'd also be the first candidate to choose his running mate in an elaborate rose ceremony.

Senator Ted Cruz said he thinks John F. Kennedy would be a Republican if he were alive today. Well, of course he would be Republican. He'd be 98 years old.

Ron Mozely reminded us that this coming Saturday, June 6th, would mark the 72nd anniversary of the D-Day Landing at Normandy by the allies in 1944. While the video Ron included in his email was the same as the one we featured two years ago, the link he provided included a more detailed lead-in:

In June 2014, an 11-year-old boy visited Normandy, France for the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. As part of the boy’s personal project, titled “Project Vigil,” this little boy spent four days teaching visitors and tourists about three paratroopers who had been buried in the American Cemetery.

During the official D-Day celebration, local police didn’t allow the boy to enter the cemetery in his WWII-style uniform. So the boy took his American flag down to Omaha Beach and planted it in the sand. Staring out at the ocean, the little boy wanted to thank all the Americans who died 70 years earlier in the fight against fascism and evil.

As the young boy struggled to hold the flag steady in the forceful wind, he suddenly witnessed a vision of American infantry soldiers heading bravely towards their fate on the morning of June 6, 1944. Gazing across the English Channel, and so moved by this vision, he brought up his hand to salute the past.

Standing alone, holding the American flag, this little boy stood firm and held his salute for over an hour and a half. While he continued this vigil, interested tourists, children, veterans, well-wishers and all sorts of people went down to see if the story was true, that on the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, there stood a boy and an American flag.

THIS clip from Don Hale shows how the state of Arizona obtained, transported and displayed a gun barrel from the USS Arizona and the USS Missouri that represent the “bookends” of the war and turned them into a “Tribute to the Fallen.” (4:51)

When it comes to precision drum corps performances, no one does it better than the Swiss. Called the “Top Secret Drum Corps,” the original seven members founded the group in Basel, Switzerland in 1991. Basel is well known for producing talented drummers, but THESE musicians wanted to mix the traditional style of their city with new techniques and stunning visual effects. Have a look. (4:35)

Last week we ran a clip of a baseball fan who snagged a foul ball in the stands without spilling a drop of his beer. This week we have a fan who made a one-handed grab of a wayward bat and kept his cup of suds intact, which is further proof of how important beer is to baseball fans. Unlike the foul ball catch, however, THIS fan had to give the bat back. (0:40)

Anyone remember THIS Bud Light Clothing Drive Internet commercial from five years ago? We did, and it’s still funny. (1:20)

The King’s College Chaplain at the start of THIS clip explains that its choir that has existed since the 15th century always had young male members with high voices — until recently. Rather than subject the older males to an uncomfortable surgical solution, they came up with something else. Have a look and listen. (1:35)

Lumpy thinks this will soon become the new 911 call standard, which is why he says he is prepared to handle THIS type of situation at home on his own. (1:30)

Even though Joe Suske participated in the D-Day invasion of Normandy (see photo below), he had no idea how the vast amount of fuel needed by the allied armies made their way from Normandy to the European mainland until he recently viewed this film and sent it to us. It is something that even you WWII armchair historians were probably not aware of. (4:14)

This video received from Dewey Moore refers to THIS device as an “Ambulance Drone,” but we are inclined to call it a “flying defibrillator.” Whatever it’s called, it could be a real life-saver. Check it out. (3:22)

We have two comments about THIS NBC video clip: 1) "It’s not for the squeamish," and 2) "WTF." No explanation is provided about this incident that was posted on the Internet by NBC on Tuesday of this week. Could it have been an attempted suicide? The footage is from two angles from two police vehicle dashcams with one following the other. (By the way, "WTF" in this instance stands for "Why the fire?") (1:36)

Does THIS retired pilot who claims he witnessed a UFO have any credibility? Would it make a difference if you knew that he shuttled Obama around the country during his 2008 campaign swing? We report, you decide. (7:01)

Here is this week’s video for you aviation junkies. It’s about a retired USMC aviator who hit it big in the real estate market after he retired and was able to indulge his love of military aircraft and purchase a Harrier from the Brits.

Harrier Jump Jets are some of the most nimble and difficult to fly fighters in the world, but that didn't stop retired test pilot Lt. Col. Art Nalls, who recently bought a Harrier and became a very rare civilian owner of the fighter jet. The British-built jet was first manufactured in 1969 and became popular during the Falklands War of the 1980s as it helped the British win by taking down over twenty Argentine planes.

Nalls was able to acquire the jet after learning that the British government was discontinuing the use of the plane in combat and looking to get rid of them. He won't reveal how much he spent to purchase the Harrier, but it is estimated by the Daily Mail that he spent upwards of $2.5 million. To fly the plane costs $150 a minute. Nevertheless, Nalls considers it all worth it to own a piece of history and fulfill a lifelong dream.

If you have ever ridden a jet ski, we will wager you didn’t ride it like Anthony Burgess. He was crowned the International Jet Sports Boating Association's pro freestyle world champion after he put on a show of his gravity-defying stunts on his personal watercraft. Check out THIS short clip. (0:39)

It’s one thing to teach a dog to jump rope, quite another to get him to jump two ropes. Have a look at THIS clip of 2-year-old "Geronimo" strutting his stuff that Art Mogilefsky posted on Facebook. (1:25)

We are often amazed at how emotional and effective public service announcements from countries outside the U.S. can be, like this one from Argentina. Give it a look and you will see why we chose it as THIS week’s closing item, but keep a Kleenex handy. (5:25)
