  1. Many, many years ago, I first became a cop. There was a controversial police shooting. The controversy was whether a white cop was allowed to shoot a black man intentionally using an SUV as a weapon to kill people. The chief's response was "I stand behind my officers" He retired shortly thereafter....
  2. Oh, how stupidity abounds with some people... https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/apple-s-head-of-global-security-indicted-on-bribery-charges/ar-BB1bi7EM
  3. Came across this and though it demonstrates very well why I couldn't make it as a cop.
  4. Email sent last night to fellow LMPD officers. Grand Jury outcome currently pending. Prayers for the Blue. LMPD Sgt. Jon Mattingly --- "I’m not here to give you a Rah Rah you got this speech. I’m not here to tell you that you signed up to help this community and to keep your head up. I’m here to tell you I’m sorry you have to go through this. I’m sorry your families have to go through this. I’m sorry the Mayor, Amy Hess and Chief Conrad failed all of us in epic proportions for their own gain and to cover their asses. You DO NOT DESERVE to be in this position. The position that allows thugs to get in your face and yell, curse and degrade you. Throw bricks, bottles and urine on you and expect you to do nothing. It goes against EVERYTHING we were all taught in the academy. The position that if you make a mistake during one of the most stressful times in your career, the department and FBI (who aren’t cops and would piss their pants if they had to hold the line) go after you for civil rights violations. Your civil rights mean nothing, but the criminal has total autonomy. We all signed up to be police officers. We knew the risks and were willing to take them, but we always assumed the city had your back. We wanted To do the right thing in the midst of an evil world to protect those who cannot protect themselves. To enforce laws that make it possible to live in a peaceful society. We as police DO NOT CARE if you are black, white, Hispanic, Asian, what you identify as...this week. We aren’t better than anyone. This is not an us against society, but it is good versus evil. We are sons, daughters, husbands, wives, parters, brothers, sisters, dads and moms. We are human beings with flaws, feelings and emotions. Now I’m just rambling, but I want you to know that I’m still proud to be a cop. To be an LMPD cop. No matter the ineptitude in upper command or the mayors office, this is one of the greatest jobs on earth. With that being said these next few days are going to be tough. They are going to be long, they are going to be frustrating. They will put a tremendous amount of stress on your families. Do not let your ego get you in a trick bag. Have your partners 6. De escalate if possible. DO NOT give the pencil pushers at the top, you know the ones who are too scared to hold the line, a reason to open investigations on you. The same ones that couldn’t make decisions to save their lives. We need leaders that lead from the front and not in a room under a desk. Do what you need to do to go home you your family. Just do it with dignity and make sure you can justify your actions because everything down there is recorded. I don’t know a lot of you guys/gals but I’ve felt the love. Regardless of the outcome today or Wednesday, I know we did the legal, moral and ethical thing that night. It’s sad how the good guys are demonized, and criminals are canonized. Put that aside for a while, keep your focus and do your jobs that you are trained and capable of doing. Don’t put up with their ****, and go home to those lovely families and relationships. I wish I were there with you leading the charge. I’ll be praying for your safety. Remember you are just a pawn in the Mayors political game. I’m proof they do not care about you or your family, and you are replaceable. Stay safe and do the right thing. YOU ARE LOVED AND SUPPORTED by most of the community. Now go be the Warriors you are, but please be safe! None of these “peaceful” protesters are worth your career or freedom. God speed boys and girls."
  5. Just your friendly and somewhat lazy police officer checking in here. I'm still doing my job and answering 911 calls. I just got issued special Lazer proof goggles. I guess this is in response to other officers who got permanently blinded by lazers in other cities.

  9. With all the cameras abounding, it'll be more fun than watching nancy grace yammering on and on. Kind of like a live action "purge" movie. Make book on when the body from the drive by gets picked up. Pass out all the personal phones numbers of the community agitators, aldermen, get that jive azzed preacher out his bed at 3am. Somebody stole your car - call wackie maxie, or someone else on the congressional black bigots. Deshawn get out early and looking to have a talk with his squeeze in violation of his parole and restraining order. Call a community agitator. Call an alderman, counselcritter. Hear gunfire, call blm. Tie in to all the security cameras, city wide. Stream it. It'll be a hoot.
  10. I normally celebrate this past weekend by working ridiculously long hours at the greatest horse track in the world. This year, nothing. No horses. ? Sad.
  11. So, as your friendly neighborhood police officer, I've been given many things to help with the latest virus. Gloves, masks, gas mask, a level C Hazmat suit, all of which I used in real life the last few weeks. A local Bourban Distillery stopped making bourban and started making hand sanitizer. In the trunk of my police car, I have a squirt bottle of hand sanitizer, which is essentially just god awful whiskey, but it works. I thank the Distillery for helping us out.
  12. My police department, which for the sake of my job security, shall remain nameless, has lost their ****ing minds. It's all about the corona virus. 1. We canceled all community meetings of any kind. Okay, I'm kinda okay with that part, since it's mostly old people complaining about young people. 2. I've been ordered to stay 8 feet away from fellow officers at all times. Definitely no touching. That might make it difficult to fight a suspect. 3. They've got me going through gallons of hand sanitizer and latex gloves like they grow on trees. Okay, that might be a good thing. 4. We stopped having roll call each start of shift. No more group meetings together. Just texting each other... 5. The chief declared an official state of emergency. The vacation I have in two months, with 4 grand already invested in reservations, is in danger of getting canned. Argh...
  13. Anybody else do geocaching? I have previously always entertained my jet setting adventures on this site and the old one. All 50 states already completed and 15 other countries completed for a 13 year old girl. This coming May 21st, we will fly to New York City for 3 days, and a cruise to Bermuda for country number 16 for the 13 year old.... I like to travel with my youngest girl, can ya tell?
  14. Next time I get stopped for speeding, I'm gonna try using the cop's "I wasn't paying attention to my speed" excuse and see how far that gets me.
  15. If I was wearing a hat now, I'd tip it to how professional this cop responded to the questions.

  17. 2 charged in Duluth MN home invasion assault The 41-year-old victim said he was attacked in his driveway in the city's Woodland neighborhood. Two men from South Carolina have been formally charged in a home invasion assault that left a Duluth man with "severe" injuries. Dallan Timothy Thorstenson, 23, and Martin Luther Paulk Jr., 26, were arraigned Wednesday in State District Court in Duluth on charges of kidnapping, aggravated first-degree robbery, second-degree assault and third-degree assault. Police said the two men were found with BB guns and baseball bats a short time after the 41-year-old victim reported being attacked in the driveway of his home on the 200 block of St. Paul Avenue in the Woodland neighborhood around 6 p.m. Sunday. According to the criminal complaint, the victim went into his garage to leave when two men attacked him. The victim, who claimed he didn't know either defendant, told authorities the men stated: "You know what you did." Officers found the victim bleeding from several injuries, including head gashes. Thorstenson reached into the victim's pocket, taking his car keys and cellphones. Thorstenson then opened the trunk of the victim's vehicle and told him to get in. The victim was unable to due to injuries so Thorstenson lifted the 41-year-old into the trunk, pointed a handgun at his face while threatening to shoot if the victim moved, and then closed the trunk. The victim heard the two men go into the house and managed to escape the trunk to seek help at a neighbor's house. He was transported to the hospital. At the time the complaint was written, the extent of the victim's injuries weren't fully known aside from a broken leg, broken arm and head wounds that required staples. Earlier that day the victim told officers two men got out of a black Kia and asked if he knew someone named Marcus. The victim said he didn't know him, and the two men returned to their cars, according to the complaint. Authorities got a physical description of the two men from the victim, who later confirmed their identification. Officers located Thorstenson near the scene and located a BB gun in a black Kia belonging to him. Paulk was located walking in the area of the home. The victim's car had been moved from the garage to the street. During investigation, officers learned the two men flew from Atlanta to Minneapolis earlier that morning, rented the black Kia and drove to Walmart to purchase two baseball bats, a BB gun that looked like a handgun, gloves and large black garbage bags before traveling to St. Paul Avenue. After arriving, they went to Gander Outdoors in Hermantown to purchase Mace and attempted to purchase a handgun, but were denied. They then returned to the victim's residence. Sixth Judicial District Judge Theresa Neo set bail at $300,000 for both defendants. They are due back in court on Feb. 18. link -------------------------------------------------- After reading the above article I went to the Police Dept website, they had a press release with more info: DULUTH ,MN] On 1/19/2020 shortly before 6:00 PM, Duluth Police and University of Minnesota Duluth Officers responded to the report of a home invasion robbery on the 200 Block of St. Paul Ave in the Woodland neighborhood of Duluth, MN.
