RETIRED OFFICER CARLOS VALENCIA
Born Oct. 3, 1961
Appointed Dec. 9, 1984
Retired Dec. 10, 2011
Died Dec. 24, 2017
Last Sunday, on Christmas Eve, Louis Quezada posted on Facebook's 10-7ODSJ page that retired Officer Carlos Valencia succumbed to cardiac arrest while being treated for double pneumonia at about 6:25 a.m. He had been admitted to the hospital two days prior, on Dec. 22. Ironically, his wife Gloria also was hospitalized for the same illness, but she recovered and has since been released. Louis, who is the designated liaison with the family, posted the following update on Christmas Day:
"I have some good news to report. Carlos’ wife Gloria has been released from the hospital and is now at home resting. I met with her and the family this afternoon and we began going over some of the arrangements. Because of the Christmas holiday, we won’t be able to solidify anything yet. Eric Grimes, Don Perrier, Gloria and I will be meeting at the mortuary tomorrow afternoon and should be able to report a date, time and location for the the service soon. Like all of us, Carlos was very proud to wear the San Jose Police uniform. So much so that he requested in his will that he be buried in it. Following his retirement from the SJPD, Carlos joined the SJPD Reserves where he served until he was hired by the Oakland School District Police in Nov. of 2015. The following August he was promoted to the rank of Sergeant. And his bachelor's degree in Legal Studies from John F. Kennedy Law School in Pleasant Hill came earlier this year."
Louis’ most recent posting at noon yesterday included the

Please join his family, fellow officers and his friends in celebrating his life next Tuesday and Wednesday."

THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF SAN JOSE AND THE SJPD
Posted by Johnson Fong on Facebook’s 10-7ODSJ Page (Craig Clifton, Administrator)
For the first time in many years the 1st Row was completely filled with Rookie Officers. It was a joyful, reflective moment as each officer introduced themselves at the Briefing.
There always seems to be some bad with the good, and sadly this email blast will reflect that.
I first want to say that I truly hope you all had a great Christmas with your family and friends. Your POA had a busy holiday season, but one that we can all be proud of. During our first 'Blue Christmas' Toy Drive we were able to distribute approximately 700 toys to children across our city who truly needed some joy on Christmas. Along with the toys that were handed out, our members were able to have a positive interaction with families in need that I think everyone involved needed, including us. An anonymous person donated $2,000 in Target Gift cards right before Christmas Eve and we were able to hand out these gift cards to underprivileged families within 24 hours of receiving them with the efforts by Captain Troy, patrol officers and the support of Chief Garcia and Assistant Chief Knopf. And of course, a special thanks to the 'Angel' with a big heart who dropped off these cards.
Our Board of Directors fed some of our troops on Swing Shift and Midnight Shift on Christmas Eve knowing that they were not able to be home with their families on Christmas Eve night. Our 'Taco Man' Taco Truck served their famous street tacos with all the extras.
On a sad note, we lost one of our police family members on Christmas Eve. Retired Officer Carlos Valencia passed after fighting medical issues for some time. Please pray for his family and friends during this tough holiday season. Rest in peace brother.
On Christmas morning, a tragic accident killed CHP Officer Andrew Camilleri. He was only 33 years old and left behind his wife and three children. He was killed by a drunk driver on Hwy 880 in the city of Hayward while working on duty. Godspeed to Officer Camilleri and many prayers to his family.
Moving toward and into 2018, please be safe, watch each others backs, and hug the ones you love.
Paul Kelly <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Ed. — For those of you out of the area, the KPIX Channel 5 link below will tell you what happened in the accident that took the life of CHP Officer Andrew Camilleri.

I don't remember George Sachtleben being shot on duty and think Mike Thompson may have him confused with Rocky Bridges. Rocky was almost cut in half by a shotgun blast late on a Saturday night in the early 1980s when he came across a couple of suspects preparing for a robbery at a downtown Latin bar near Julian and Market Sts. Rocky had spotted the suspects next to an abandoned brick building on San Pedro St. north of Manny's Cellar when he was shot at. His vest probably saved his life. Many of us didn't hear about the shooting until we arrived at work the next morning for the annual Mercury News 5-10K foot race through the streets of downtown San Jose. The shooting suspects were able to escape and remained on the loose for some time before they were arrested during a takeover robbery (hostage situation in S/O jurisdiction at Murray's bar on Bascom south of Valley Medical Center). I'm not sure because of a fading memory, but I think the same suspects may have been responsible for a robbery, false imprisonment and brutal waitress assault at Uncle John's Pancake House which was located on Hillsdale just west of Almaden Expy. Lyle Rice was a robbery investigator during those years and might have more information.
For your readers not familiar with the history of the SJPD, Rocky Bridges was involved in another shooting in July 1985. He and his partner Henry Bunch were working dayshift patrol and were processing a male drunk driver at AIB (Alcohol Investigative Bureau). AIB was a room located between the police garage and Main Jail, adjacent to the Angela Davis courtroom. As Rocky was retrieving some paperwork from their patrol car the suspect grabbed Henry's gun and shot and killed him. Hearing the gun shot, Rocky ran into the room and shot the suspect, killing him too. I attended many police funerals while working Motors, but rarely saw such a gut-wrenching flow of emotions as exhibited by Rocky during the funeral service for his friend and partner Henry Bunch.
Rocky retired from the department and went into teaching in the central valley area. When he succumbed to cancer in 2009, several members of the SJPD attended his funeral as a tribute to him.
Ron Webster <email@example.com>
Regarding the late George Sachtleben, I think I can clear up the confusion over his rank. Based on additional communication with Kenn Christie and a handful of others, it appears that George was a Captain when he left active duty with the Marines and was promoted to Major when he joined the USMCR (Marine Corps Reserve). That would account for his gravestone at Arlington listing him as a Major.
Bill Leavy was the Mayor and City Council’s Security Officer when Rocky was shot. He and I were both were working out of the Chief’s Office when we visited Rocky at VMC the day after he took the 12 gauge round to the chest. When he pulled back the heavy bandage to show us the damage, Bill and I were amazed. There was literally a hole in his chest at least three inches deep and three inches wide. There is no question that his vest saved his life. Without it, the .32 caliber pellets from the 12 gauge shotgun blast would have, as Ron mentioned, cut him in half.
Several officers from the Dept. attended Rocky’s funeral in his hometown of Bakersfield, and all of the pall bearers were from the SJPD. THIS is a link to a Mercury News article about Rocky.

When Lynne Caro posted the video below on the San Jose cops’ 10-70DSJ page, I shared the link with someone I know very well. He added to the dialogue and posted it on the Armstrong & Getty Listeners Facebook page which caters to conservatives. (The A&G show airs on KGO from 6 to 10 a.m. M-F.) This is how my “friend” introduced the video clip.
Here are three dozen pundits, politicians and Hollywood swells who hate the fact that their statements about Trump having NO chance to become president will live forever on the Internet. But the real enjoyment starts at the 5:25 mark. That’s where reality sets in and the anguish begins. To see these people in disbelief and on the verge of a mental breakdown when Trump wins the White House sent a chill down my leg 100 times greater than the one Chris Matthews claimed he felt when Obama won the presidency!

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COIN
Laurie McNamara (JoeMac’s widow) sent us a copy of the following press release from the city of Sunnyvale that expresses support for Phan Ngo, the former SJPD Dep. Chief who accepted the position of Chief of the Sunnyvale Dept. of Public Safety. A Mercury News article in last week’s Farsider spoke about Phan receiving a "No Confidence" vote by the SVDPS Public Safety Officers Assn.
of Sunnyvale Endorses Chief of Public Safety’s Initiatives and Reforms Effort
Dec. 5, 2017
—Calls ‘No Confidence’ Vote by Public Safety Officers Association “Unfounded and Uncalled for”—
SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Sunnyvale’s City Manager and Mayor today voiced their unequivocal support for the public safety initiatives and reforms sought by Public Safety Chief Phan Ngo, calling a recently conducted ‘no confidence’ vote by the Public Safety Officers Association “unfounded and uncalled for.”
Chief Ngo’s public safety improvements, which include transparency, an Internal Affairs Modernization program, increased accountability, discipline process improvements, and strengthening emergency preparedness, were presented to the Sunnyvale City Council during its May 2017 Budget Workshop, and, in particular, the Internal Affairs Modernization program was included in the Council adopted budget for fiscal year 2017/18.
The Internal Affairs improvements have upset the leadership of the Public Safety Officers Association (PSOA), but the initiative enjoys the full support of city leaders, said Kent Steffens, Interim City Manager.
“The integrity and professionalism that Chief Ngo’s leadership brings to the Department of Public Safety and to the City of Sunnyvale is important to the modernization and progress of our public safety department,” stated Steffens. “The chief’s vision and determination will have a long-term impact for the betterment and safety of our officers and our community.
“We want to point out that we value, appreciate, and respect the many public safety officers who serve this city and put their lives on the line,” Steffens added. “However, we believe the PSOA leadership is being intransigent and resisting essential modernization efforts. This is not in their best interests nor the best interest of public safety officers and the public.”
A PSOA representative recently informed members of the City Council that officers took a vote of “no confidence” in the chief – apparently in reaction to his efforts to increase transparency and relations with residents, and hold all members of the Department to a higher standard of accountability. The representative did not disclose the number of members who participated in the vote or the number who voted for “no confidence.”
Steffens said that Chief Ngo is working to improve the department’s Internal Affairs process, promoting transparency, fairness, and organizational excellence. The term internal affairs refers to a division of a law enforcement agency that investigates allegations, incidents, and possible suspicions of law-breaking and professional misconduct attributed to officers.
In collaboration with Hillard Heintze, a highly regarded police and security consultancy group, Chief Ngo has taken steps to ensure the Department’s internal affairs review process is independent, unbiased, and consistent with modern best practices. The project includes outreach to numerous stakeholders within and outside of the Department, training, and ultimately adoption of a new and reformed Internal Affairs process. The Sunnyvale project is currently scheduled to be completed in 2018.
The chief has sought the involvement of public safety and the public safety officers’ association leadership in the process, which also includes community members and leaders. This collaborative effort is important to continuing to build trust between public safety officers and the community, Steffens added.
Other progressive initiatives by the new chief include an effort to update the city’s 9-1-1 emergency system, which recently suffered a power outage. The city and the chief are working on a solution to ensure backup power is available if the first system is out of service. In addition, the city and the chief are planning a dedicated emergency operations center as part of the Civic Center Modernization Project.
As part of his new leadership, Chief Ngo has significantly invested in community engagement. He initiated a Youth Leadership Academy that provides junior high school students lessons in ethics, leadership, and communication skills. Ngo is committed to continuing to build trust between public safety officers and the community.
Chief Ngo has a successful career track record and previously led Internal Affairs at the San Jose Police Department. He participated in an Internal Affairs Peer Review of the internal affairs process of 17 major law enforcement agencies throughout the United States. And, from this review, he worked with the City Manager’s Office and Police Administration at San Jose in modernizing the San Jose Police Department internal affairs process.
Asked for comment, Chief Ngo called the public safety officers association reported vote an aggressive and unfortunate tactic, but that he would not be deterred from implementing meaningful reform that will benefit department members and the community they serve, and continue Sunnyvale’s reputation for innovative public safety service. “I want to stress the Department’s members are dedicated, hardworking, and impressive first responders, and I am deeply honored to be leading such a fine group of men and women.”
ONE GUTSY LADY COP
Suspect Overpowers Officer Who Doesn't Quit Til She Wins
By Officer Blue — Blue Lives Matter
The officer was alone confronting a
much larger suspect but didn’t let up
Columbia, SC - A Columbia police officer was recorded fighting a suspect who was much larger than her, and had just assaulted a female and threatened others with a knife.
The incident happened at around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at the BP S-Mart in the 1000 block of Elmwood Avenue, according to The State.
Donald Songster Brown, 39, punched a female in the face and threatened people with a knife while not allowing them to leave the store.
Brown then left the store and was confronted by a lone police officer.
At the start of the video, Brown ignored the officer's commands, and she responded by deploying her Taser. The Taser failed, and Brown tried to walk away.
The officer wasn't about to let him get away, and she charged after him, grabbed him by the back of his neck and tried to take him down. Brown was able to slip his jacket and escape the officer's grip.
He continued to try to get away as the officer tried again to take him down. Instead the man overpowered her and threw her to the ground as the cameraman and numerous bystanders stood by and watched.
The officer got right back up and sprayed Brown with pepper spray. He continued to fight with the officer's attempts to control him, sending the officer to the ground again.
Finally, a bystander jumped in and tackled Brown to the ground and punched him as another good Samaritan kicked him in the head while he was on the ground.
The officer recovered and was able to place Brown under arrest.
Brown was booked on charges of attempted murder, armed robbery, kidnapping, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and resisting arrest.

Claim Fumes from Viagra Factory in Ringaskiddy, Co
Cork Have Arousing Effect on Locals
—One local joked: 'One whiff and you're stiff’—
By Anita McSorley — Dec. 5, 2017
The Pfizer factory in Ringaskiddy and inset, Viagra
Locals living in a Irish village claim there is "something in the air" which has an arousing effect on men - and even dogs.
Ringaskiddy in County Cork is home to pharmaceutical giant Pfizer's Viagra factory.
The factory made headlines in recent days after bosses announced that the little blue pill will be sold over the counter in the UK from spring.
And in the wake of that, locals have opened up about the strange effects they claim it's having on their small village.
Local Sadie O'Grady told the Sunday Times: “We’ve been getting the love fumes for years now for free.
“It’s amazing the number of people who come to this village, perhaps out of curiosity, and then never leave.
“They settle down here. As they say, there’s something in the air — not that we need it, of course. But for some fellas with problems in that department it can be a blessing.”
Her daughter Debbie O'Grady laughed: “One whiff and you’re stiff."
While Sadie's 18-year-old nephew joked: “I’d probably need something that has the opposite effect,”
Another local Fiona Toomey suggested even the dogs are enjoying the effects.
“Even the dogs here have been known to walk around in a state of sexual excitement,” she said.
But Pfizer bosses have rejected their claims, putting it down as an "amusing" myth.
A spokesperson told the newspaper: “Our manufacturing processes have always been highly sophisticated as well as highly regulated."

Lunch at a Mexican restaurant
Received from Frank Smith
Two elderly Jewish men, Sid and Abe, were sitting in a Mexican restaurant when Sid asked, "Do you know if any people of our ancestry were ever born and raised in Mexico?"
Abe replied, "I don't know, let's ask our waiter."
When the waiter arrived, Abe asked, "Are there any Mexican Jews?"
The waiter replied, "I don't know, señor, I ask the cook.”
A minute later he returned and said, “No, señor, the cook he say no Mexican Jews.”
Abe wasn’t satisfied and asked, “Are you absolutely sure?”
The waiter, realizing he was dealing with Gringos, replied, “I check once again, señor,” and returned to the kitchen.
While the waiter was away, Sid said, “I just can’t believe there are no Mexican Jews. Our people are scattered everywhere.”
The waiter returned to their table and said, “Señor, the head cook, Manuel, he say there is no Mexican Jews.”
“Are you absolutely certain,” asked Abe/
“Señor, I ask EVERYONE,” replied the exasperated waiter. “All we have is Orange Jews. Grape Jews, Prune Jews, Tomato Jews and Apple Jews. We have no Mexican Jews!”

Received from Joe Devane
A group of women were at a seminar on how to maintain a loving relationship with their husbands. They were asked, "How many of you love your husband?"
All the women raised their hands.
Then they were asked, "When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?"
Some women answered today, a few yesterday, and some couldn't remember.
The women were then told to take out their cell phones and text their husband the words, "I love you, Sweetheart."
The women were then instructed to exchange phones with one another and read aloud the text message they received in response to the message.
Below are 12 of the replies. If you have been married for quite a while, you understand that these replies are a sign of true love. Who else would reply in such a succinct and honest way?
• Who the hell is this?
• Are you sick or what?
• Yeah, and I love you too. What's wrong?
• What now? Did you wreck the car again?
• I don't understand what you mean.
• What the hell did you do now?
• Don't beat about the bush, just tell me how much you need.
• Am I dreaming?
• If you don't tell me who this message is actually for, someone will die.
• I thought we agreed you wouldn't drink during the day.
• Your mother is coming to stay with us, isn't she?
