Introducing, hopefully, a new medium. Private and confidential, open to officers and employees of the San Jose Police Department, as well as the occasional dispatcher, by registration only (name and ID#).

Brought about by the demise of the Facebook forum for police discussions that was removed by order of the Chief as a result of unofficer-like discussions.

Comments and suggestions welcome.

Amazon pulls best seller revealing truth about the
Black Lives Matter movement

Do you want to know the truth about the Black Lives Matter movement? Are you willing to look at their agenda objectively? Have you wondered why only a select few black lives actually matter to this organization? Do you wonder how they’ve become lavishly funded?

If so, and you’re looking for the best seller,The Truth Behind the Black Lives Matter Movement and the War on Police via Amazon, you will not be able to get it, because the irrefutable writing has been pulled.

I learned the booked was no longer available when trying to order a copy. “Currently unavailable,” the Amazon tab declared. “We don’t know when or if this item will be back in stock.”

Censorship is being practiced at Amazon. Moreover, it is occurring because the truth apparently collides with the politics of Jeff Bezos, founder, CEO, and president of the multi-national technology company. Rather than challenging facts, they’ve chosen to hide the condemning details since these revelations harm the dangerous BLM movement undermining American values.

Herhold: The story of a mob-related murder in San Jose
By  | Bay Area News Group

A month before I arrived at the Mercury News in 1977, our fair city was convulsed with a killing that shined klieg lights on what had been an open secret: the existence of the Mafia in San Jose. It went down in history as the “cheese case.”

For the next decade and a half, in a fight fueled by deep pockets, the courts wrestled with what happened on the night of Oct. 11 at the California Cheese Co. offices, a 10-acre industrial plant near Highway 101 and Interstate 280.

At bottom, the tale turned on the fiery emotions of two fathers and two sons, each son more volatile than his older-line Italian father. Because of its strange sequence, the slaying never deserved the name of organized crime: It was anything but organized.

As you read accusations of errant, coldblooded killings by modern gangs — a trial involving San Jose’s El Hoyo Palmas crew has just opened in Superior Court — it’s worth recalling a time when a mob-related murder was deeply personal.

Here’s a stained-glass depiction of California’s great seal.

The Roman goddess Minerva is included because she was born fully grown, just as California joined the U.S. as a full-fledged state without having first been a territory. There’s a grizzly bear, a prospector, and a bay with ships, all characteristic of California. And the state’s official motto — “Eureka,” or “I have found it” — is included in tribute to the history-bending discovery of gold. The great seal is stamped onto all California bills signed into law and also appears, ever so faintly, on every state driver’s license.
