The flip side of punching cops in front of peers

Interesting to see that law abiding citizens side with the police, not the criminals. Resisting arrest and punching a cop in the face is generally not a good thing although we imagine that Kamala Harris will only be too happy to get her friends at the MFF to post bail, organize a visit to speak of her pride of knowing this man and telling us he comes from an “incredible American family.

One imagines this chap is not regarded as an upstanding member by his peers.

Nisswa mayor arrested by cops for disorderly conduct

Good!

Nisswa, MN Mayor Fred Heidmann was arrested by his own police force for disorderly conduct and obstructing the legal process.

The mayor rattled off all manner of expletives at the officers (video contained in previous link) who eventually got sick of his rant and put him in his place.

Despite polite requests to move to a safe area away from the highway he told the officers that he was the “mayor of this f’ing town!”

Nisswa Police Chief Craig Taylor said, “I’m disappointed and extremely sad that an elected official feels justified in inserting himself into a traffic stop that has nothing to do with him and feels it is appropriate to yell and swear at two officers from two jurisdictions that are doing nothing more than trying to do their jobs and making people safe.”

Virginia Democrats declare open season on public servants with new legislation

Virginia Senate Democrats have passed a bill, Bill 5302, reclassifying the assault of a law enforcement officer as a misdemeanor.

In summary,

[The bill] eliminates the mandatory minimum 6-month term of confinement for an assault and battery committed against a judge; magistrate; law-enforcement officer; correctional officer; person directly involved in the care, treatment, or supervision of inmates; firefighter; or volunteer firefighter or any emergency medical services personnel and provides that such crime can no longer be committed as a simple assault and must result in a bodily injury.”

So do Democrats want to declare open season on public servants? Should EMTs trying to save lives or fire-fighters attempting to protect the community be subject to thuggery without legal protection too?

Is it any wonder the police unions are flocking to endorse Trump. We imagine the fireys and ambos aren’t far behind.

An emotional speech given at the RNC by the widow of former St Louis Police Chief David Dorn who was murdered protecting a friend’s pawn shop. How sad that, unbeknownst, his grandson watched his death on Facebook livestream. Too sad.

Wichita City defies mob and hikes police budget

Well, well, well. This is what happens when the Wichita City Council pushes back unanimously on the yobs demanding to defund the police by increasing its 2021 budget 7% in to “handle changing crime trends.”

A $7.3 million increase to the police department’s budget will be used to build a Central Wichita substation and hire more officers.

Good to see that some councils listen to their residents instead of the identity obsessed Minneapolis City Council which is pushing to defund the police and then hit up taxpayers for their own private security!

Seattle brewer prints All Cops Are Bastards on beer cans

For those unaware, ACAB means “All Cops Are Bastards.”

A Seattle brewer, Mirage, has taken the liberty of printing that message to the bottom of its cans.

Mirage owner Michael Dempster wrote, “I used the markings because I stand against institutional racism, of which modern policing is a militarized arm.

Interesting he holds this view when the outgoing Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best is black. He might not know that Mayor Jenny Durkan made a point in 2019 of ensuring 39% of new recruits entering the Seattle PD were minorities. So much for institutional racism, unless he means that it is biased against whites?!

We wonder if the mob ends up vandalizing the brewery, will the cops prioritize a call out with the reciprocal respect shown the them?

Somehow the brewer thinks it is taking the moral high ground.

Common sense can literally be a mirage. Or is it cynically hijacking a cause to hopefully sell more beer to college kids and snowflakes?

Who can blame Carmen Best?

Who can blame Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best for resigning?

After the humiliation at the hands of Mayor Jenny Durkan, Best’s wonderful message to her troops is a lesson in dignity, something her boss knows little about. Recall the mayor undermined Best when allowing the “summer of love” in CHAZ, only to demand the police clean it up when it affected her own $7m gated mansion.

After 28 years on the force, would anyone truly wish to complete the pinnacle of their career dispensing budget and salary cuts, firing new recruits – many from minority backgrounds – to make way for woke social workers to replace many functions that will likely still end up relying on the police to ensure the very safety and harmony they’re promising to deliver?

Even though the council voted 7-1 to defund the police, maybe they missed the huge number of Seattle citizens openly expressing support for the men and women in blue last Sunday?

Bike shop co-owned by Lance Armstrong lectures Austin PD on ethics

Image may contain: sky and outdoor, text that says "Mellow JOHNNY'S BIKE SHOP FORT WORTH TRAINING RENTALS OHNAHOR S SHOP SERVIGE BUKE"

How amusing that a bicycle store co-owned by former Tour de France (TdF) cyclist Lance Armstrong decided to lecture the Austin Police Department on ethics. Mellow Johnny’s in Austin is ending a five-year contract worth up to $350,000 with the Austin PD to purchase, resell and service bikes for a downtown patrol unit used to manage large crowds and events. As a business, it is free to choose who it wishes to contract with.

The bike shop issued the following woke statement,

Businesses can no longer be non-participants in the communities they serve…We chose what we think will do the most to suture these divides and place our community on the right side of history.

Perhaps these SJW employees might reflect on their moral preening when considering the fact their boss admitted to deliberately using illegal performance-enhancing drugs to cheat his way to millions in endorsements and help win all 7 TdF titles. Why didn’t they refuse to work for a company knowingly co-owned by someone with such reprehensible morals and ethics?

Unfortunately, the downside forced this message from an unrelated bike shop with the same name.

“While Mellow Johnny’s Fort Worth shares the name with Mellow Johnny’s Austin, the two stores operate under separate management and ownership.

Mellow Johnny’s Fort Worth is not connected in any way to the decisions made by the Austin location’s management.

Mellow Johnny’s Fort Worth supports our community as well as responsible and ethical law enforcement.

Perhaps Mellow Johnny’s Fort Worth should offer to fill the void left by Austin?

86% of Americans polled want more police not less

Gallup released a poll this week and discovered that 81% of blacks want police spending the same amount of time if not more in their communities vs 88% for whites, 83% for Hispanics and 72% for Asian Americans.

In aggregate, 86% of the almost 35,000 polled voted for the same/more police presence.

Good.
