Taser Use On 8-Year-Old Justified, Police In S.D. Say

 

 

 

 

” PIERRE, S.D. — The police chief here is defending an officer’s use of an electroshock weapon against an 8-year-old girl threatening to harm herself.

Parents of the child, who was with a babysitter at the time, want the officer disciplined for using excessive force.

Police Chief Bob Grandpre said three officers responded Friday night to a report of a suicidal 8-year-old girl who had stabbed herself in the leg. She was holding a 4½-inch knife to her chest when officers arrived, and she refused to put it down.

One officer took a step toward the child but stopped when she turned the knife toward him.

“She immediately put the knife back at her chest,” said the chief of police in this city of about 14,000 that is the capital of South Dakota.

That’s when an officer deployed his Taser, with prongs hitting her chest and stomach. Emergency medical personnel soon arrived and checked the child, he said, who was taken to a hospital and placed on a 24-hour hold. The child had no stab wounds on her leg. “

 

   This seems excessive to us . Kind of like the three hundred pound probation officer that shot the Jack Russell terrier because he feared for his safety .

Police Chief Killed With Rifle Lost In ATF Gun-Tracking Program

 

 

 

 

A high-powered rifle lost in the ATF’s Fast and Furious controversy was used to kill a Mexican police chief in the state of Jalisco earlier this year, according to internal Department of Justice records, suggesting that weapons from the failed gun-tracking operation have now made it into the hands of violent drug cartels deep inside Mexico.

Luis Lucio Rosales Astorga, the police chief in the city of Hostotipaquillo, was shot to death Jan. 29 when gunmen intercepted his patrol car and opened fire. Also killed was one of his bodyguards. His wife and a second bodyguard were wounded.

Hundreds of firearms were lost in the Fast and Furious operation. The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives allowed illegal purchasers to buy the firearms at the Lone Wolf store in the Phoenix suburb and other gun shops in hopes of tracing them to Mexican cartel leaders.

The WASR used in Jalisco was purchased on Feb. 22, 2010, about three months into the Fast and Furious operation, by 26-year-old Jacob A. Montelongo of Phoenix. He later pleaded guilty to conspiracy, making false statements and smuggling goods from the United States and was sentenced to 41 months in prison.

Court records show Montelongo personally obtained at least 109 firearms during Fast and Furious. How the WASR ended up in the state of Jalisco, which is deep in central Mexico and includes the country’s second-largest metropolis, Guadalajara, remained unclear.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stockholm Police Ticket White Victims As Muslim Immigrants Burn The City Down

 

 

 

” The Stockholm police say it is to dangerous to fight the rioting Muslim immigrants. However, they are issuing revenue generating parking tickets to victims of destroyed automobiles.

Over 150 cars have been completely destroyed. By night the authorities cower in fear, by day they come out to ticket the victims.

From FriaTider.se…

But while the Stockholm riots keep spreading and intensifying, Swedish police have adopted a tactic of non-interference. ”Our ambition is really to do as little as possible,” Stockholm Chief of Police Mats Löfving explained to the Swedish newspaper Expressen on Tuesday.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amazing New Details From The Chase For The Boston Bombers

 

 

 

” The police chief, Edward Deveau, describes how cops nearly apprehended the older suspect, and were placing handcuffs on him in the middle of the street Thursday night, when the younger suspect came at officers in a carjacked SUV. The cops were able “to dive out of the way,” and the younger suspect then continued to drive directly over his brother and dragging him through the street. That’s how the older suspect died, according to the police chief.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   Brazenly Heisted Off Of The Blogfather’s Page … A Link-Filled Post About The Internecine Battle Between Oath-Keeping Milwaukee County Sheriff David A Clarke and Scandal-Plagued Bureaucratic Toady , Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn … An Epic Study In Contrasts

     Every now and then we come across a post(s) that , while we feel guilty doing so , we feel the need to share in it’s entirety just because it is something  masterful … funny how it more often than not comes from the Master himself , Glenn Reynolds as does this one . We beg your pardon Professor and hope that you will accept this theft of your wares in the spirit of sincere flattery that it was intended , not that we would actually expect a blogger of your stature to show himself in this dark , dank and dusty part of the blogger’s basement .

” A GUN CONTROL APOLOGY:

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. has fired another salvo in his ongoing clash with Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn over guns, law enforcement and public safety.

In a letter to a Republican member of the U.S. Senate, Clarke has issued an apology “on behalf of my constituents” for Flynn’s blunt Capitol Hill testimony last week in support of an assault-weapons ban.

The sheriff accuses Flynn of being “embarrassing” and “rude,” and hostile to gun rights in the letter, sent to South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham, a member of the judiciary committee that heard Flynn’s testimony.

“Please do not see (Flynn’s) arrogance as exemplary of the people of Milwaukee County,” Clarke writes.

If I were the Milwaukee police chief, I’d be keeping my profile low. Too many scandals.

And remember that Chief Flynn is the one who instructed his officers to knock even legal gun-carriers to the ground, just because. Have you noticed that the more politicians support gun control, the more likely they are to be thuggish and corrupt? Which I guess explains Chicago. . . .

If you see Chief Flynn, you can ask him about that. Or you can ask him about his illegal body cavity searches. Or his crime-statistics book-cooking scandal.

Boy, Not Making Bombs, Arrested for Having Things Cops Think Could Blow Up (And For Drawings That Spooked a Teacher)

 

 

” The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is publicizing an interesting little story out of Galloway Township in New Jersey:

When a 16-year-old New Jersey boy doodled in his notebook on Tuesday, December 18, he probably didn’t expect to be arrested by the end of the day. However, when school officials saw the sketches, which they state appeared to be of weapons, and the boy “demonstrated behavior that caused them to be concerned,” the police were called.

 

At no point in time did the boy threaten the school, school officials, or his classmates. He cooperated fully with authorities, and a search of the school itself found nothing dangerous…. “

 

 

Nothing dangerous was found , he cooperated and made no threats , yet …

 

 

” A subsequent search of the boy’s home led to his arrest because they found several electronic parts and chemicals. He was charged with the possession of an explosive device and put in juvenile detention. “

 

 

The boy attends a school that is known for it’s ;

 

 

“engineering and environmental sciences and specializing in hands-on learning”

Sayeth the Police Chief : 

 

“There was no indication he was making a bomb, or using a bomb or detonating a bomb,”

 

 

Sayeth the Principal :

 

“thankful that we had a staff member that (saw something that) caused her some concern, and that she had the sense to report it to school officials. These are things that teachers receive training on all the time.”

 

 

Good Lord what lessons are we teaching our children ? Government mandated stupidity and group think . God help us . 

 

 

 

Armed SWAT Teams To Patrol Streets In Arkansas City

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Paragould, Arkansas Mayor Mike Gaskill and Police Chief Todd Stovall announced at a December 14 Town Hall meeting that beginning in 2013 the streets of their city were going to be patrolled by police officers bearing SWAT gear and AR-15s. “If you’re out walking, we’re going to stop you, ask why you’re out walking, and check for your ID.”

The move comes in response to a recent increase in violent crime. In a city with a population of only 26,113, Paragould had 86 rapes, robberies and assaults in 2010 and those numbers are expected to nearly double for 2012. Paragould currently has a City-Data crime index rating of 465.0, well above the national average of 309.3.

Property crime statistics in Paragould are even more alarming. While the national average for burglary, theft and auto theft is at 7 for every 1,000 people, the Paragould average is 20.14. “
