POLICE TRAINING VIDEO – THIS IS A TEST!

ANSWER HERE ____________________

 

CAUTION, POLITICS!

Jen “Circle Back” Psaki

I sat, as did millions of other Americans, and watched as the government  underwent a peaceful transition of power yesterday.

At first, I felt a swell of pride and patriotism while

Joe Biden took his Oath of Office.

However, all that pride quickly vanished as I later watched 21 Marines, in full dress uniform with rifles, fire a 21-gun salute to the President.

It was then that I realized how far America ‘s military had deteriorated.

Every one of them missed the bastard.

Former police chief: Sorry Pelosi and crew – we aren’t buying your sudden  “support” for police officers

The following editorial is written by a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today 

An Open Letter to Democrats: 

Sorry, Democrats. You’re wasting your time and police officers are not buying it. We can see  through your transparent, politically motivated sudden embrace of police officers. Simply put,  we know exactly what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. Nice try. 

You see, we have had our eyes open for years. We watched and listened when your messiah,  Barack Obama jumped on the Cambridge Police Department, saying that they “acted stupidly” in  their response to a possible burglary involving a black college professor. Your “beer summit”  meant nothing. 

We had our eyes open when Michael Brown, a two-bit street thug robbed a convenience store,  beat the owner and then attempted to disarm Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson, resulting in  getting himself killed. 

We have seen Brown elevated by your party to the level of a “victim of systemic police racism.,”  when the events that led to his death were of his own doing. 

Police officers saw a politically ambitious district attorney in Baltimore, Marilyn Mosby  prosecute six of our brother and sister officers for the death of Freddy Gray, a clearly politically  motivated witch hunt, as evidenced by Mosby’s self-serving press conference announcing the  arrests. 

Thankfully all six had their cases dismissed. 

Over the years, we have seen Democrats demonize police, accusing officers of leaving their  husbands, wives, children, brothers, sisters, mom and dad in the morning with the intention of  hunting down black men and killing them. 

We saw your vice president, Kamala Harris, who represented the State of California refuse to  acknowledge the shooting death of our brother, Cpl. Ronil Singh who was killed by an illegal  alien in HER state. 

Now, suddenly when it is politically expedient, police are held up as heroes. Why? Because you  had YOUR ass saved by police officers on January 6.

It wasn’t a shop owner in Minneapolis, or people dining outside in a restaurant in Pittsburgh, or  an innocent 90 year old walking down the streets in New York City who were endangered. 

It was YOU. 

Now, after months, no years of excoriating the police, you expect us to buy your bullshit? Sorry,  not happening. 

The most telling example of your abject hypocrisy started on Memorial Day last year in  Minneapolis. The images of Off. Derek Chauvin kneeling on the neck of George Floyd could  have been a seminal moment. I guarantee that 99.9% of police officers who viewed that video  were as offended by it as you were. 

Yet, what came out of that? When our political leaders could have “lowered the temperature” of  people who were rightfully upset by what happened, politicians…primarily Democrats…took  gasoline and added it to the fire. 

In Minneapolis, millions of dollars of damage was done to property. Numerous people were  injured or killed. Hundreds of police officers were injured, some seriously. Yet, what did you,  the Democrats do? 

People such as our now vice president Kamala Harris encouraged people to donate to the  Minneapolis Freedom Fund to bail out those who were arrested, many for committing serious  crimes. Members of the Biden for President team also contributed. 

As spring turned to summer, violent riots continued across the country. Hundreds if not  thousands of police officers were injured, struck with frozen water bottles, shot at with ball  bearings and bullets, hit with cinder blocks and bricks, had commercial-grade fireworks shot at  them. 

Where were the Democrats then, defending the police you now accuse Republicans and Trump  supporters of attacking? Nowhere to be found. 

Where were Democrats when retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn, who served his city  honorably for decades, was brutally gunned down by cowardly thugs? Nowhere to be found.  Because it didn’t fit your agenda and besides, all of you were down with the revolution. 

Democrats call what happened at the Capitol on January 6 an insurrection…no an “armed”  insurrection. Yet only one person was shot, and that was an unarmed woman shot (allegedly) by  a US Capitol police officer.

However, when violent protests broke out adjacent to the White House on May 30, such a violent  protest that former President Trump and others were removed to the basement bunker for fear  the perimeter would be breached, Democrats downplayed the incident, despite the fact that  numerous Secret Service agents were injured, some seriously. If ever there was an “insurrection”  attempt, this was it. 

Where was your concern for law enforcement back then? That’s right, it wasn’t YOU being  threatened, it was “only” the President of the United States. 

When it was suggested that the National Guard be mobilized to secure the area around the White  House, President Trump was accused of wanting to attack American citizens using the military.  When it was suggested that he implement the Insurrection Act when Democrats refused to deal  with violent riots, Democrats once again brought up impeachment, because of your endless  obsession.  

You were “mortified” that the president considered using the Act, despite the fact it has been  used numerous times by presidents over the years, including by President George H. W. Bush in  1992 to deal with the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles. There was absolutely precedent for  doing so. Yet you acted like Trump was some crazed madman for tying to protect our country.  

Yet, since January 6, Washington DC has taken on the appearance of Mogadishu or Beirut, with  checkpoints, fences, and armed National Guard troops. And Democrats have no problem with  that. If this had been Trump who turned Washington, DC into an armed camp, the articles of  impeachment would already be filed. 

In fact, Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked the Pentagon for “crew-manned machine guns” in the city,  according to the former Acting Deputy Homeland Security Secretary, Ken Cuccinelli. That’s  because SHE felt threatened. Read that again. Pelosi wanted machine guns deployed in our  capital city. For the purpose of gunning down civilians. That is a chilling abuse of power and it is  contemptable. 

And what of the contempt that police officers were held in after the George Floyd incident?  Pelosi for one referred to police officers as “stormtroopers.” 

“The use of stormtroopers under the guise of law and order is a tactic that is not appropriate to our country in any way,” Pelosi said back in July. 

This was in response to federal law enforcement assets being used to protect the federal  courthouse in Portland, Oregon, while also accusing “unidentified” officers of “kidnapping”  protesters. 

The number three leader in Congress, Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) compared federal law  enforcement officers to “Nazi Germany Gestapo.”

“That kind of activity is the activity of a police state, and this present and this attorney general seems to be doing everything they possibly can to impose Gestapo activities in local communities…” 

Now, let’s get to the move by you Democrats to defund the police. This is actually part of the  Biden platform, and is being pushed by the far-left wing of your party, specifically Ocasio Cortez, Bush, Pressley, Omar and Tlaib, among many others. This is also something that is being  pushed by Black Lives Matter, the same group responsible for the assault on thousands of police  officers you now claim to support. 

I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that you won’t be advocating any time soon for defunding the  Capitol police. Because once again, you’re fine with jeopardizing everyone else’s safety, as long  as you’re protected. Basically “hooray for me and screw you!” 

Yet now we are supposed to buy that you support the police, and it is Republicans that do not? 

The incident at the Capitol was a very small percentage out of all the patriots who went to  Washington, DC that day, to do exactly as President Trump suggested…go to the Capitol  “peacefully and patriotically” to have their voices heard. 

The actions of two or three hundred knuckleheads do not represent the estimated 100,000 or  more in Washington on Jan. 6. Republicans overwhelmingly support the police. The actions of a  few do not represent the whole, as you like to tell us about so-called “peaceful” protests. 

Probably the most disgusting act of hypocrisy and opportunism was the way the death of Officer  Brian Sicknick was handled. Officer Sicknick, who (according to CNN) died of unknown causes  on January 6 was not honored at the Capitol rotunda until days before February 8, the first day of  the second impeachment sham. 

You do not have to be a rocket scientist to know exactly why weeks went by before Brian  Sicknick was honored at the Capitol. This was clearly done for your political gain and for optics.  Nearly every cop in America knows this. And it’s a disgusting sham. 

Having members of Congress shedding crocodile tears for Brian Sicknick was obscene,  especially when some of these same people eviscerated police officers for months, if not years.  This is about the impeachment of Donald Trump. Nothing less. 

Perhaps the biggest phony was Kamala Harris, showing up to “pay her respects” when months  ago she was helping bail out people who injured and maimed men and women just like Brian  Sicknick. Abject hypocrisy. 

Democrats in Congress, you may be fooling your base, or the clowns on CNN like Fredo Cuomo  and Don Lemon, or the reprobates on MSNBC like Joe and Mika, but those of us in law  enforcement, both active and retired are not buying it. 

There are two boogeymen for Democrats…police and former President Trump. However, since  you are obsessed with President Trump and he lives 24/7 in your heads, police…at least in this  case…are a convenient weapon against him due to what happened at the Capitol. 

This is about your obsession with Trump, nothing more…nothing less. You’re using the death of  Off. Sicknick and the injuries to other officers as a pawn against Trump in your obsessive  crusade against him. 

If this wasn’t a way to get to him, and if you didn’t believe you were going to somehow get  harmed on January 6, you couldn’t care less about the dead and injured officers. You have shown  that time and again over the years, when scores of police officers are killed every year, with  hundreds more seriously injured and we hear NOTHING from you. 

Police officers in this country knows who has our backs and who does not, and clearly the  opportunistic, anti-law enforcement numb nuts in the Democratic party are not them. 

You can take your pandering and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine.

GEORGE FLOYD REDUX?

“SJSU recognizes that for many members of our community, the circumstances surrounding Gregory’s death are emblematic of longstanding systemic racism in our nation,” Papazian wrote in a Feb. 18 email to students. “The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office and Coroner’s Office recently agreed to undertake a new review of the coroner’s report, once the pandemic allows them to do so. We will cooperate with any requests for information.”San Jose State University says county officials are reopening an investigation into the suspicious death of a Black student in 2008.

Have they discussed this with Texas, lately?
