Little is known about the
passing of Annie. When Chaplain Bridgen received word three days ago that she
had died, he checked with the POA office and came up with an e-mail address of
one of Annie's two daughters. After contact was made, Dave learned that the
former wife of retired Sgt. Tom Navin passed away from liver failure back on
July 6th. She was living in a home in Santa Cruz. Neither of the daughters had
any ties with the SJPD, and when they learned of their mother's passing, they
handled the arrangements without thinking to contact the Dept. No funeral was
held and no obituary was published. Annie's survivors include her two daughters:
Jennifer, who is single; and Katie, who has two daughters of her own, Michelle
and Ava. We have no additional information. Annie has been added to the SJPD
PBA'S ANNUAL BBQ
MEETING SET FOR NEXT WEDNESDAY
Next Wednesday's monthly PBA meeting will feature
its once-a-year barbecue extravaganza. Hors d'oeuvres and snacks will precede
the lavish dinner comprised of huge New York steaks prepared on the grill by Lee
Wilson, Jim Polmanteer and Terry Handforth. To compliment the steaks, Lumpy will
be preparing his famous (some say "infamous") Road-Kill Chili and his dynamite
Ensalada Grande. Also included will be a more than ample supply of
tasty-but-breath-killing Garlic Bread. A special dessert from Cake Bosses Mike
Fehr and Tommy Mazzone will follow the feast, and Bob Moir will see to it that a
full array of spirits along with a variety of beer and wine will be available at
the bar, including some single-malt Scotch for the discriminating aficionado.
PBA members are invited to bring their appetites and enjoy this annual event.
But remember, this is for members only. President Dave Wysuph and
Sgt.-at-Arms Bob Moir are on record as saying that any member who shows up with
a guest will be turned away.
PENSION ISSUE NEWS
Here are two
items of possible interest from the I.A. column in last Sunday's Mercury News...
Ex-officer Constant Goes on the
Mercury News —
Aug. 5, 2012
In the run-up to San Jose’s Measure B pension reform
vote in June, Councilman Pete Constant was the target of critics who suggested
that his disability retirement as a police officer was dubious. You can put that
critique to rest. Constant, a firm Measure B backer, underwent the knife
Thursday to fix chronic problems with his back, which he first injured in 1997
when he tumbled down an embankment as a vice officer.
This is not his first surgery: Constant, a professional photographer by trade,
already has had two rods implanted in his back. His staff says the surgical
option he chose this time was the least invasive, but full recovery is expected
to demand six to eight weeks. Ever the optimist, Constant says he hopes to be
back about Labor Day if all goes well. We politely declined his offer of
photographs of the procedure.
The absence of Constant — the council’s most conservative member — will shift
the balance of power somewhat.
Constant has been a reliable vote with Mayor Chuck Reed on his fiscal reform
agenda. He won’t be there Tuesday when the council considers putting a sales tax
measure on the November ballot, which Constant’s business backers oppose.

VOTE FOR CHRIS MOORE FAILS
Aug. 7, 2012
SJPOA Membership Votes Not to Proceed with No Confidence Vote Against Chief of
Today, the San Jose Police Officers' Association entertained a motion from one
of its members recommending a vote of no confidence against Chief Chris Moore.
The motion did not pass. The fact that the POA did not pass a vote of no
confidence at this time should not be misinterpreted as a vote of confidence in
the Chief or the politicians at City Hall.
"With crime soaring in San Jose, officers leaving in droves and the safety of
officers and the residents we protect placed in daily peril, it should come as
no surprise that one of our members recommended a vote of no confidence against
Chief Chris Moore", said San Jose Police Officers' Association President Jim
Many of San Jose's patrol beats regularly go unfilled and those that are filled
are at only half-strength. Without officers working on their days off, the
situation would be worse.
"Recently, the Department has lost over 100 officers to other departments with
many more in the process of leaving. Staffing has shrunk from 1403 in 2008 to
1060 today resulting in the elimination of the dedicated gang suppression unit,
the Violent Crimes Enforcement Team, the Vice Unit and now the Fraud/Burglary
Unit and two motors/traffic teams are on the chopping block", said Unland.
"This weekend in San Jose's Evergreen neighborhoods there was another shooting.
In that area alone, burglaries have increased this year by 146% over last year.
City hall has failed the community and POA members are frustrated by the Chief's
seeming inability to vigorously speak out against the continued erosion of the
staffing, safety and morale of the San Jose Police Department," POA Board Member
Officer Howard Johnson.

PLANNING TO VOTE
FOR MITT ROMNEY IN NOVEMBER? WHY BOTHER?
A couple of weeks ago I
read a letter to the editor in the Mercury News that touched on the Electoral
College. It spurred me to draft a letter of my own about the subject, something
I've been harping about for years. The paper didn't see fit to print my letter,

response or two from you folks for next week's Mail Call column, which has all

July 29, 2012
Kudos to John Foster for pointing out the unfairness of the winner-take-all rule
of California's electoral votes (California is just an ATM for candidates, July
29th). The Golden State is so blue that a vote for Mitt Romney will literally
mean nothing. Ditto for Barack Obama in the red states. With the exception of
Nebraska and Maine, all of the states use the winner-take-all rule. That the
next president will be decided by only a half-dozen or so "toss-up"
winner-take-all states is no way to run a presidential election. As an
independent, I plan to vote in November, but only because of the state and local
measures. Casting a vote for the president of my choice would mean nothing,
other than to see it tallied as one of the popular votes after the winner of the
election is decided.

California is Just an ATM for
Letter to the
Mercury News — July 29, 2012
Both Mitt Romney and President Obama came to California last week, but they were
not here to campaign; they were here to collect money.
After they collected their cash from the California ATM, they promptly left. No
speeches, no public events. The only way you could get to see them or hear them
speak was if you paid. With our current system of winner-take-all electoral
votes, Californians have no influence at all in the presidential campaign
regardless of party affiliation. If you’re a Republican, your vote has no
impact, and if you’re a Democrat, your vote is taken for granted. The candidates
don’t come to hear our views; they don’t compete to try to win our votes; they
come only to collect our cash.
As the most populous state in the union, we should have far more influence in
shaping the platforms and policies of the presidential candidates. We can do
this by going to a proportional method for awarding our electoral votes, in
which our state’s electoral votes would be cast in proportion to the popular
vote. Making this change would make California a meaningful state in the
presidential election instead of just an ATM.
NOT A GOOD START TO
Had ESPN not fired Hank
Williams, Jr. last year he would probably be ready for some football, but the
NFL will be limping into the season without its regular crew of officials.
Because they have been locked out for some time, the National Football League
will be starting its season with replacement officials, including one of the
female gender. It's probably safe to say that our in-house NFL referee — Bill
Leavy — and the rest of the regular officials aren't happy about the situation,
but until negotiations are settled, what is, is.
Following is an article from Yahoo Sports about the first female in the history
of the NFL who will be stepping onto the field today to monitor the monsters of
the midway by officiating the San Diego-Green Bay pre-season game...
First Female NFL Referee to
Officiate Pre-Season Game is a Travesty
By Julie Hayes —
Yahoo Contributor Network
Okay, let me get one thing straight. I am a woman. So
in no way am I disparaging the fact that a woman officiating an NFL game is
wrong or a travesty simply because of her gender. When Shannon Eastin takes the
field on Thursday to officiate the San Diego Chargers-Green Bay Packers game,
she will be "making history" as the first woman to officiate an official game.
It's not like Eastin doesn't have a lot of football
officiating experience. She's worked in the Mid-Eastern Athletic conference and
apparently "other leagues" that many sources discuss but never quite get into
specifics as to where. Who plays in the Mid-Eastern Athletic conference? Teams
like Delaware State, North Carolina A&T, Bethune-Cookman, and Savannah State.
Regular powerhouses, right?
Unfortunately, that's not an unusual resume among the replacement referees that
the NFL is hiring while it's still attempting to hammer out a long-term deal
with its regular officials. These replacements are not referees who are ready
for prime-time nor who are even close. They've not been pulled from the fields
of SEC or Pac-12 games. Those officials are already committed to their college
schedules. The NFL has a "watch list" of college officials that they select new
officials from on an annual basis when there are openings. Guess what? Not a
single referee on that watch list is available.
Using replacement officials who have never come close to this level of
athleticism, size, and speed is a colossal mistake and will be evident to even
the most casual fans at any game. Throwing a woman into an NFL game in this
manner and then saying she's making history is a joke. She didn't earn this
right. She might have one day. However, she's not even the best female referee
officiating in football right now.
That female official is named Sarah Thomas and she's the one who should have
been selected over Eastin. She IS actually on the NFL watch list, has officiated
at the Division I level, and even worked a bowl game. Problem is, she's in a
contract that won't let her leave her current conference. Many believe that she
was going to become the NFL's first female official. Now she won't.
One day Thomas will be brought up onto an NFL crew and blend in just like
everyone else. She will have earned that position and she will be good at it
because she's gone through all the proper training and channels to get there.
It's not Eastin's fault that everyone is attaching this "breakthrough" to her,
but to give her extra attention because of her gender in this situation is just

Shannon Eastin doesn't take the field today in the Chargers-Packers pre-season
game, this NBC Sports report dated yesterday could be the reason why.
Officials Plan to Point Out Replacement Official’s Poker Past
By Mike Florio — August 8, 2012
Pro Football Talk — NBC Sports
The good news for the NFL is that the debate regarding replacement officials
will soon move on from the question of whether Hall of Fame game referee Craig
Ochoa was fired by the Lingerie Football League.
The bad news is that the league will be dealing with another replacement
official’s recent past as a high-stakes poker player.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the locked-out officials will soon
be making it known that Shannon Eastin, who will become the first female
official to work an NFL game, has played in the World Series of Poker.
Multiple links containing reports from the 2007 event mention Eastin.
At a time when the league is suing New Jersey to prevent gambling on NFL games,
and in light of the league’s staunch opposition to gambling in most forms
(except the ones that the owners are allowed to engage in, or those from which
the league can make money, like scratch-and-lose tickets), the league office
either didn’t know about Eastin’s poker playing or opted to make an exception
given the need for replacement officials.
Some may regard the coming assault from the locked-out officials as an attack on
Eastin’s gender. It’s a far deeper problem than that, in our view. The league
has strong views on gambling, and the last persons associated with pro football
who should have any connection to gambling are the game officials.
We’re not saying that Shannon Eastin will be the next Tim Donaghy. We’re saying
that, if the standards for screening replacement officials are sufficiently lax
to let a former contestant in the World Series of Poker get through the filter,
perhaps one of the other 119 replacement officials will be the next Tim Donaghy.
We’ve tracked down the rules regarding gambling by game officials.

Players Rip Replacement Refs

You didn't see much about this on television. Or hear
about it. But players from the New Orleans Saints and Arizona Cardinals claim
replacement officials working the Hall of Fame Game made so many errors, players
from both sidelines began openly mocking them.
The mistakes, players say, were numerous, despite not being discussed much or
shown on the broadcast. For one, players say, not a single, non-special teams
holding penalty was called. That is a remarkable thing for the first preseason
game of the year.
Players gave numerous examples, but said two were blatant. In one, officials
forgot to move the marker after a 3-yard loss. The loss was followed by an
incomplete pass. So it should have been third-and-13 but the marker showed
third-and-10 because the official forgot to move it. One sideline erupted over
the mistake and the officials corrected it.
On another play, it was explained by players, there was a holding call on a
Saints punt return and it took the officials four attempts to correctly spot the
football. (I could be wrong but I don't remember seeing any of this on the

It got so bad players began mocking the replacement officials. Players also say
some of the officials began arguing amongst themselves vocally in front of the
The National Football League Referees Association, the union for the locked out
officials, released a statement later on Monday saying it documented a number of
mistakes as well. Biased? Of course. Accurate? Yes. Players pointed to many of
the same mistakes the NFLRA did which included:
• A touchdown ruled short
• A no call for offensive holding in the end zone
• A no call for illegal motion
• A no call for kicking team member going out of bounds and touching ball first
• Wrong penalty enforcement for offensive holding
• A no call for illegal hands to the face
• A no call for facemask
• A no call for helmet to helmet on defenseless punt
• The royally screwed up hold on a punt return
• A no call on intentional grounding
• A no call on defensive offsides
Do regular officials make these kinds of mistakes? Of course. But this goes to
the fact that replacements refs are afraid to make calls.
This is going to be interesting to watch if these mistakes continue. Especially
if there is no settlement of the lockout and this continues into the regular

NOT THE CITY AND
POLICE DEPARTMENT YOU ONCE KNEW
For those of you living out
of the area who are unaware of how bleak the situation is in San Jose as it
relates to the SJPD and other parts of the Bay Area, this article from Tuesday's
paper pretty much lays it out. Instead of the headline below, it could just as
well have read, "Police Ignoring Burglaries and Other Property Crimes."
Police Agencies Say They Keep
Their focus on Violent Crime
By Joshua Melvin
Mercury News —
Aug. 7, 2012
Bay Area cities have seen double-digit jumps in home burglaries during the
first half of 2012 as a storm of factors including fewer cops on the streets and
rumors of easy targets have collided to boost thievery.
The biggest spike is in Palo Alto, with a 63 percent jump in home burglaries,
but Oakland has seen a 33 percent hike, and the surge in San Jose is 39 percent.
San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed last week called for data on the spike and an
explanation of what his police chief was doing about it. In both San Jose and
Oakland, with fewer officers able to respond to calls, police are focusing on
homicides or rapes instead, while burglaries get lower priority.
In contrast, police say, the situation on the Peninsula appears to be driven
more by the belief in crime circles that communities along the Interstate 280
corridor are easy marks for jewelry and electronics thieves, and homeowners are
helping by leaving doors and windows unlocked.
Cuts push trend
San Jose police Chief Chris Moore said budget cuts have
chopped his department down from 1,409 officers and trainees in 2007 to 1,056
cops now. As a result, he said, officers on the street may be swamped with calls
for help. The less urgent calls, such as a report of a suspicious person, might
not get a speedy response. Calls about suspicious people often are tied to
break-ins, police say. San Jose police this year also stopped responding to
burglar alarms unless someone confirms that a break-in has happened. But Moore
said he believes that has little to do with the recent upswing.
Moore said he’d rather not have to choose which types of crimes get priority,
but that’s the reality. “These (burglars) don’t stop until you catch them,”
Moore said. “I’d rather catch them the first time, instead of after the sixth or
seventh crime.” Oakland, which is down to about 640 officers, a drop of 200 from
just three years ago, also gives priority to violent crimes, Oakland Police
Department spokeswoman Officer Johnna Watson said. She said the staff cuts are
one factor pushing the spike. Recently, she said, the department shifted more
cops, vehicles and attention to address the problem and that has made a
difference. Police are noticing a recent curb in the burglary trend. The number
of cops on the street isn’t the only reason for the burglary bounce. In fact,
the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office, which patrols areas that include more
than 517,000 people, has also lost officers because of budget cuts. Yet home
burglaries are down by 13 percent in its jurisdiction, which includes Danville,
Orinda, Lafayette and Oakley. Sheriff’s office spokesman Jimmy Lee didn’t give a
particular initiative credit; rather, he said, it’s part of the overall drop in
crime the sheriff’s office has seen.
Burglaries on the rise
Peninsula police departments, meanwhile, have been dealing with a spike in
crimes that they believe is related to talk circulating in crime circles.
Detective Bob Collins of the South San Francisco Police Department, which had a
31 percent break-in jump, said burglary suspects have told investigators they’d
heard from other crooks that Interstate 280 corridor communities had lots of
“These homes are upper middle class, and they have things people want,” Collins
said, adding that Peninsula police have launched a regional effort to fight the
Palo Alto police acknowledge a direct connection between dozens of that city’s
burglaries and its residents’ tendency to leave windows or doors unlocked.
“Unlocked doors have played a significant role,” Palo Alto police Sgt. Brian
Philip said. “It allows (burglars) a stealthy approach.” Palo Alto police even
launched a “Lock It or Lose It” campaign after publicizing the burglary spike in
March. But it doesn’t appear that all residents have been heeding that advice.
Police announced a second spate of burglaries in mid-July, with at least 20
reported since early June. And guess how the crooks got in? Unlocked doors and
It’s not the economy
Several police agencies have pointed to the down economy as a factor in the
recent burglary surge. But Robert McCrie, a security expert at John Jay College
of Criminal Justice in New York City, said the difficulty — or ease — of
stealing from a home is a better predictor of crime. In fact, most of the Bay
Area’s biggest cities, and the country as a whole, have seen overall crime
continue to fall in the years after the recession, according to FBI statistics.
So-called “soft target” communities, where home entrances are camouflaged by
trees and don’t have or use alarm systems, are more likely to attract burglars.
“These are the things that increase the chances you get away with it,” McCrie
said. “Burglars pass this message on, and someone else might say, ‘Hey, I can do
