D.C. Police: Corruptus In Extremis

The Washington, D.C. Police Department has reclassified Tara Reade’s sexual assault report against Joe Biden from “active” to “inactive,” despite the report was only filed on April 9th.

The Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department changed the status of a complaint against 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden from active to inactive, One America News Network reported.

The network’s Richard Pollack reported Wednesday afternoon that the D.C. police department appears to have closed its investigation into Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual assault against Biden.

“The D.C. Metropolitan Police Department has suddenly, without explanation, killed its active investigation into sex abuse charges against presumptive presidential candidate Joe Biden,” Pollack said.

So in less than three weeks, the D.C. police conducted a thorough and intensive investigation, including interviews and witness canvassing? Sure, Jan. The Daily Caller suggests maybe there are statute of limitations issues, but in most municipalities, those limits are placed after the report is made; not necessarily when the event occurred.

If you want my no b.s. assessment, I believe the upper echelon commanders at the D.C. police decided this story needs to go away, so they quite literally filed Reade’s report in the circular file.

I fully understand the nation’s police commanders are more politicians than they are officers, but this is disgusting, even for a crooked department like D.C.

No-Talent QB Searches For Relevance

Unemployed, mediocre quarterback Colin Kaepernick continued his futile search for relevance this weekend when he compared police officers to fugitive slave patrols.

NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick compared police officers to fugitive slave patrolmen after a Minnesota officer was acquitted in the shooting death of a black motorist.

Kaepernick tweeted his displeasure with the verdict, with a graphic reading “You can’t ignore your history – always remember who they are.” “A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn’t need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled,” Kaepernick wrote.

Always remember who Colin Kaepernick is; a race-baiting former quarterback who despises America.

Between the lines, a police badge is shown side-by-side with a “fugitive slave patrol” badge. Fugitive slave patrols were common in the antebellum South, watching for runaway slaves.

The difference between Kaepernick and most police officers – despite the obvious IQ points – is when a police officer does something idiotic/criminal, most cops attack them for it. The true irony is when an NFL player does something idiotic/criminal, they circle the wagons and blame someone else for the player’s criminality.

Well, Something Needs To Be Smashed

smashburger

A few despicable, single-digit IQ employees of a Colorado Smashburger franchise showed their appreciation for their local law enforcement officers this week.

An Aurora police officer ate dinner at Smashburger while an employee allegedly played N.W.A’s “Fuck Tha Police” over and over again.

Smashburger released a statement, saying the matter was being looked into.

“First and foremost, we respect, honor and appreciate every police department in the country. The regrettable events of Friday night in no way reflect the values or principles that are core to the Smashburger brand.”

The spokeswoman added that the manager and the employees involved had been placed on leave while an investigation is underway into the matter.

That last line is business school code for “We’re suspending those involved with pay until this all blows over, then will reinstate them immediately.”

My concern here, other than these a-holes playing that song, is if they were brazen enough to blast that song on a continuous loop, what did they do to that officer’s food before they served it to him?

A Sweet Treat

police-thank-you-candyOn Friday, my daughter Julia – AKA Princess P – made candy gift packs for the 7th Police District’s officers. The 7th is located a few blocks from the school, and the bags were filled with candy, and the note on the left was attached. It was a terribly nice gesture for the local police.

After they completed the gift bags for the officers, Princess P’s teacher asked if anyone had parents who were cops. Julia raised her hand and said, “My dad is a detective.” The teacher – who taught all three of my boys – replied, “Are you sure?” Apparently, she did not remember me from last year’s Police and Fire Appreciation Day. After swearing up and down I am actually a detective – albeit a lousy one – Princess P was allowed to make a bag for me, and gave it to me after work Friday.

Most people in law enforcement do not ask for much on this job. We expect to be yelled at, assaulted, and hated by people just because of our chosen profession. Small things like these make all the nonsense so very worth it. I know Princess P loves me, and it’s nice to see others appreciate us, too.

Click the photo to read the note. It’s pretty humbling.

Oh, and here are my munchkins’ costumes this year…

The End Of The Line

Florida Georgia LineMeet country music sensation Florida Georgia Line. The bans has apparently aligned themselves with BLM after telling police officers they were not allowed backstage, or near the band, at two venues.

Country music duo Florida Georgia Line is backpedalling after they allegedly dissed law enforcement in both Wisconsin and now Iowa. Last week, FGL was in Kenosha, WI for the Country Thunder music festival when they made it clear they didn’t want officers anywhere near them.

“We were on the grounds the entire event covering the camp sites, festival grounds and also (backstage),” Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth said. “I was informed the (Florida Georgia Line) spokesperson had made the request prior to the concert that no law enforcement be backstage while they were on the grounds.”

So I wonder who FGL will blame when some drunken, shotgun-totin’ redneck – and I say that with all due respect – slips backstage and starts ass raping the band’s sisters/girlfriends?

Now, TMZ has reported the duo did the same thing in Iowa – only this time, it was law enforcement who had the last laugh. Jones County Sheriff Greg Graver said he was headed backstage at the Great Jones County Fair Saturday night to go over security protocol with the band when a FGL crew member told him uniformed officers were not allowed backstage – per the band.

Graver said halfway through their performance, he was told the band wanted him to provide a police escort out of town following their performance. Sheriff Graver informed them he wouldn’t spend “one tax dollar assisting them.” (H/T – TXNick)

Naturally, Florida Georgia Line received a lot of backlash for their policy. As a result, they are walking back their comments, claiming it was a “misunderstanding,” and called both sheriffs to apologize.

Now I don’t know what’s in FGL’s hearts, but I do have a question: If FGL did nothing wrong, and claim this is a misunderstanding, why apologizea week after the fact? Why not immediately come out and vigorously deny the story? Personally, I believe the sheriffs, but I’m biased.

Don’t Forget Your Rubbers

English Rubber Duck RaceA village in England called Bourton-on-the-Water recently reminded people the United States has not cornered the market on police idiocy.

Officers descended on Bourton-on-the-Water,to break up the charity event which was raising money for a local branch of Blood Bikes. The charity is made up of volunteer riders who operate a free blood and medical equipment delivery service to NHS facilities 24 hours a day.

Minutes after around 100 rubber ducks were launched into the River Windrush, which snakes through the centre of the village, a resident called police. According to an ancient bylaw, the river and the village green cannot be used on Sundays for fundraising purposes.

Officers from Gloucestershire Police ordered the organisers to halt the event or risk arrest.

How ironic would it be if one of these officers was injured, and no blood was available because these over-officious jerks shut down a friggin’ rubber duck race?
