Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn Speaks Truth To Stupid

Milwaukee-Police-Chief-Edward-Flynn-PFTR

There are times when race baiters and reporters are so caught up in their own agenda they can’t see what’s going on around them.

Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn recently put these morons in their place after being accused of not caring enough about the subject of the press scrum in front of him.  He was on his cell phone, you see.

Unfortunately for the stupid ones Chief Flynn was on his cell phone receiving updates about a 5-year-old child who was killed in a drive-by shooting.  He was not remotely “politically correct” in dealing with the stupid people asking even stupider questions.

Well done, Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn!  We need more chiefs of police speaking Truth to Stupid.  Maybe then things will change.

Watch below.

A Police Chief Defending Citizens’ Right to Self Defense?

Detroit-Police-Chief-James-Craig-PFTR

Detroit-Police-Chief-James-CraigI’ve written about Detroit Police Chief James Craig before. I could probably write about him weekly and the message would still be missed by those too brain-dead to comprehend Craig’s support of civilian self defense.

James Craig believes each and every one of us has the right to defend ourselves against aggression, even if that means not dialing 9-1-1 until the problem is already solved.

By “problem” I mean the home invader, the attempted rapist, the violent criminal intent on robbing you or worse… should one of we mere citizens shoot a bad guy James Craig will not lose any sleep over it and he doesn’t want the good citizens of Detroit to do so either.

“Coming from California (Craig was on the Los Angeles police force for 28 years), where it takes an act of Congress to get a concealed weapon permit, I got to Maine, where they give out lots of CCWs (carrying concealed weapon permits), and I had a stack of CCW permits I was denying; that was my orientation. I changed my orientation real quick. Maine is one of the safest places in America. Clearly, suspects knew that good Americans were armed.”

Instead of doing what Canada’s RCMP is currently, namely harassing law-abiding gun owners and turning them into criminals and fabricating stories about mass shootings with AK47s, Detroit Police Chief James Craig is doing what police ought to do.

He’s going after actual criminals.

He feels no need to manufacture them out of his law-abiding citizenry, and for that he is to be commended.

Going after the bad guys does come at a cost, of course, which is why the RCMP doesn’t seem very interested in following James Craig’s lead.

Bad guys do stupid things when police get in the way of their “earning” power, and Detroit Police Chief James Craig’s case is no exception. He’s knocked such a hole in Detroit’s drug crime that the dealers want him dead. Literally.

From DetroitNews.com:

The FBI and local police are investigating a threat to kill Police Chief James Craig, the chief said Saturday.

The threat, made over the internet by a man believed to be a drug dealer, was uncovered Friday, Craig said.

“We got information that a dope dealer basically said ‘We need to take the chief out,’” Craig said. “We investigated it, and it was deemed a credible threat. This is the kind of thing that happens in third-world countries.”

Craig believes the man who made the threat is upset because police are costing him money by ramping up the number of drug-house raids they conduct.

“We’re raiding, on average, 35 dope houses a week, and we’ve done five large-scale sweeps, and it’s putting a serious crimp in the dope dealers’ money,” Craig said. “What I take from this is, what we’re doing is working. This guy actually did me a favor, because he let me know we’re making a difference by going after these dope dealers.”

“I want to be there when we get this guy. I want to look him in the eye. You don’t threaten any police officer, let alone the police chief.”

Here in Canada, however, we’re content with turning over 13,000 law-abiding citizens into criminals overnight, all at the whim of some RCMP bureaucrats.

As I’ve said before and will no doubt say again, law-abiding gun owners don’t shoot cops. Real criminals will.

Shocking But True! Good Cops Really Exist!

NYPD-Officer-Larry-DePrimo-is-living-proof

NYPD-Officer-Larry-DePrimo-is-living-proof

In the midst of the Geoff Mantler police brutality trial it’s easy for us to forget that not all cops are brutal thugs with badges and guns who believe they are above the law.

Some police men and women are actually, believe it or not, genuinely decent and honourable human beings.

One such decent and honourable police officer is NYPD Officer Larry DePrimo and were it not for a photograph taken by an Arizona tourist, the world would never have known what Larry DePrimo did for a homeless man one bitterly cold winter night.

Jennifer Foster of Florence, Arizona, was in New York with her boyfriend when she witnessed DePrimo’s act of generosity and kindness.

Officer Larry DePrimo gave a homeless man a pair of all-weather boots and thermal socks so his feet wouldn’t freeze.

In part, what motivated DePrimo was the rude and insensitive behaviour of some passersby.

They mocked and ridiculed the homeless man and his bare feet.

“It was extremely cold that night,” DePrimo told Fox News on Friday. “I just knew I had to help him.”

DePrimo, an NYPD police officer for under 3 years, downplayed his act of kindness. But he keeps the receipt for his purchase of boots and socks for a homeless man inside his bulletproof vest… a reminder that there is always someone less fortunate than he is.

NYPD Officer Larry DePrimo is an example every police officer should strive to emulate. RCMP Constable Geoff Mantler… not so much.

Oh, that some of our own RCMP members could act with a tiny fraction of the decency shown by this NYPD officer…

Kimmirut, Nunavut, and Sir Robert Peel’s 9 Principles of Policing

Fascinating news out of Kimmirut, Nunavut, yesterday.  Kimmirut is located roughly 120 kilometres south of Iqaluit and is where RCMP Constable Douglas Scott was murdered in 2007.

The tiny town has a long tradition of hating the RCMP enough to shoot at them.  I’m sure that while most people in Canada don’t hate the RCMP enough to shoot at them, most people in Canada also wouldn’t lift a finger to help an RCMP member if he or she was in trouble, either.

That’s the price the RCMP must pay for hiding serial rapists, protecting killers and generally placing the Fat Blue Line between themselves and the citizens of Canada, examples of which abound on this website.

Sir Robert Peel’s 9 Principles of Policing are the foundation on which the first police force was created.  Sir Robert Peel believed that a police force could not operate successfully for long without the support and cooperation of the public.  He was, of course, correct in that belief.

The first three of his timeless principles are:

1. The basic mission for which the police exist is to prevent crime and disorder.

2. The ability of the police to perform their duties is dependent upon public approval of police actions.

3. Police must secure the willing co-operation of the public in voluntary observance of the law to be able to secure and maintain the respect of the public.

Throughout Canada and especially in British Columbia the RCMP has a very tough time doing their job due to their lack of adherence to these three principles.  Repeated high-profile disgraces such as former RCMP Corporal Benjamin (Monty) Robinson, RCMP Constable Bill Bentley, RCMP Constable Gerry Rundel, RCMP Constable Kwesi Millington, RCMP Constable Geoff Mantler, and RCMP Constable Andy Yung all show with repulsive clarity that the RCMP is a police force that does not have the “respect of the public” as Sir Robert Peel calls it.

It would appear that in the tiny town of Kimmirut, Nunavut, that RCMP Corporal Wendy Cornell and RCMP Constable Allan Jagoe are actually behaving like a police force ought to, however.

Why do I say this?

For one very simple reason…

Silver Lake, Wisconsin, Police Chief Dan Kingsley has the right idea about firearms

silver-lake-wisconsin-police-department

Study after study shows that firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens reduces crime.  In his landmark study of this issue, More Guns, Less Crime, John Lott, Jr. discovered that the paradox was overwhelmingly true.

The more firearms there are in the hands of ordinary decent citizens, the less crime there was.

Naturally the anti-gun crowd went nuts trying to find some way of discrediting Lott’s study, but they couldn’t.  So now they just do what they do best when the facts don’t fit their pre-determined conclusion: they ignore him.

One police department that is NOT ignoring the wisdom of Lott’s conclusion is the Silver Lake Police Department in Silver Lake, Wisconsin.

Silver Lake is a small village of roughly 2,400 people according to the wikipedia entry for the village.

Like most small towns in America, there likely isn’t much crime in Silver Lake and Police Chief Dan Kingsley wants to keep it that way.  That’s why he has asked his Firearms Training Officer, Keith Kerwin, to host a Concealed Carry class for anyone who would like to apply for their Wisconsin Concealed Carry Weapons (CCW) permit.

While everyone is welcome to attend the CCW class (scheduled for April 21 from 10am – 2pm) if you’re a resident of Silver Lake you get a $15 discount on the course fee.

The course only costs $75, but hey, better $15 in your pocket, right?

RCMP Constable Jim Moir: A True Hero

jim-moir

I’ve said repeatedly that not all RCMP constables are like the sad examples that I so often cite on this site.  RCMP Constable Jim Moir is one such decent constable.

Constable Moir’s case happened almost a year ago, and I’m not sure why I never heard about it at the time, especially since it happened only an hour down the highway from Lytton.  Be that as it may, I’d rather commend a man like Constable Jim Moir late than not at all.

Last February Constable Moir was attending a vehicle accident in Yale, BC.  The Troy’s family vehicle had slid off the icy road into the ditch. Constable Moir was outside the vehicle and standing beside 15-year-old Buffy-Anne Troy when a sanding truck began to slide toward them.

Without a second thought Constable Moir pushed Buffy-Anne into the ditch to protect her as the sanding truck slid into him, crushing his leg between the two vehicles.

“I feel amazed that he would do that,” Buffy-Anne Troy said.

“He’s a real hero because if it wasn’t for him, I would be seriously injured or dead. I’m so grateful.”

Finding a cop who actually knows and respects the law? Priceless!

Officer Matt Lyons

It’s such a beautiful sight to behold in today’s raging wannabe police-state culture: a policeman who not only knows the law, but respects a citizen for invoking his rights.

Officer Matt Lyons, Badge Number 1093, of the Oceanside Police Department was recorded stopping a man who was legally openly carrying a handgun as he walked down the street in Oceanside, California.

It’s such a refreshing change to, for example, Chicago police officer John Killackey.  Killackey is the thuggish little jerk who got drunk, pulled his gun and threatened to shoot a cab driver in the face for daring to ask for the cab fare.

Naturally his commanding officer, a moronic man named Sergeant Robert Peabody, arrived on scene, handed Killackey back his gun and then refused to allow the cab driver to even file a complaint. No wonder Chicago is known as the City of Corruption!

Back to California, where there is at least one good and decent cop alive and kicking!

Yes, it is legal in California to openly carry an unloaded handgun.  Normally though, the cops captured on video seem to not know or care about that, so it is incredibly refreshing to see Officer Matt Lyons do his job with such professionalism and respect for his fellow citizen.

It’s so against the norm.  Police have increasingly become, generally speaking, agents of terror in our post 9/11 era.

Every single citizen is viewed as “the enemy”, and any who dare exercise their Rights are just terrorists-in-waiting.
