Good. There have to be repercussions for being a jackass. Via Fox News. A worker at a Texas fast-food restaurant was fired after she refused to serve two police officers, the company said Saturday. In a lengthy post on the Denison Police Department’s Facebook page, Chief Jay Burch alleged the officers were cursed at by the employee and that the restaurant manager’s only response was “I don’t get into politics.” “If a business does not want police officers as customers, just let us know,” Burch wrote. “There’s no need to curse us and make a scene, just let us know you don’t want us there and we’ll go somewhere else.” He added, “Now going somewhere else in Denison in the...

This is a nice sweep, but so much more needs to be done. I do like the special touch of focusing on the scourge of Sanctuary Cities, a nice reminder to these jurisdictions about how serious the federal government is about taking care of business. Via Los Angeles Times. Immigration officials on Thursday announced hundreds of arrests in an operation targeting communities where police and elected officials have refused to fully cooperate on enforcing federal immigration laws. ICE said it arrested 167 people in and around Los Angeles, a region in which several cities and counties have been tagged by justice officials as being so-called sanctuaries — a loosely defined term used to describe local governments that restrict police from...

This took place in Portland Oregon, five days after President Trump was inaugurated. Looks like “law and order” is making a yuge comeback 🙂 Via Free Beacon. Portland, Ore. police officers in riot gear took down and arrested over a dozen protesters on Wednesday as they gathered in downtown Portland, blocking transit lines. Fox 12 Oregon captured video of protesters blocking multiple buses from driving down the street, including one demonstrator who was even sitting on the front of a bus. Within seconds, however, the riot police emerged from behind one of the buses and tackled the protesters with clubs in hand. As the police threw some of the protesters to the ground, the crowd that had gathered began cheering...

Turning the NYPD into NYPh.D.? What could go wrong? Via NY Post. NYPD cops are about to become street shrinks, under new rules that require them to use calming phrases when they have to subdue dangerous disturbed people, The Post has learned. The touchy-feely mandate is part of a broad series of changes to the “use of force” guidelines that Commissioner Bill Bratton announced in October — following the mistaken takedown and false arrest of tennis star James Blake and the chokehold death of Eric Garner. “I am [name] and I’m here to help,” officers should tell an emotionally disturbed person on the street, according to the 16-page pamphlet’s directives…. The cops also are told to listen closely and “Identify...

Maybe some people are getting tired of being taken for granted.

This is somewhat good news, but two cases are still missing, and there’s been no arrest. They found the 30 cases based on a tip, so perhaps they’re close to an arrest. Via ABC. Most of the 32 cases of fireworks believed to have been stolen in transit have now been recovered thanks to a tip, officials said today, although no arrests have been made in the case. A senior law enforcement official told ABC News Friday that 32 cases of commercial grade fireworks were reported missing and were believed to be stolen from a CSX train shipment that originated in Chicago and ended in Detroit. The train went through Ohio, where officials believe the fireworks may have been stolen....

This sounds very strange. We better find out why sooner than later. Could it be he had no idea what was happening and thought is was a home invasion? I can’t imagine what transpired here that would compel the police to release a man who shot a firefighter to death, and injured two others.

Bottom line: Police departments never send citations through email; do not open link. Via Fiscal Times: You might want to think twice before opening up that email from your local police department. A new scam posing as a speeding ticket has hit at least three residents in Tredyffrin Township, Pennsylvania, just outside of Philadelphia. The ticket arrives via email and contains a link that loads malicious code onto the user’s computer. The Simi Valley Police Department in California issued a warning about a similar type of scam on Monday. What makes the scam particularly alarming is that the emails contain accurate traffic data, including street names, speed limits and actual driving speeds. The people who received the emails were actually...

I mentioned what I believe to be the Democrat plan “race riots” this summer. But then there could also be angry conservatives, you never know! Via Cleveland.com. Cleveland is seeking to buy 2,000 sets of riot gear, including riot-control suits and collapsible batons, as part of the city’s latest move to spend a $50 million federal security grant for July’s Republican National Convention. The city this week posted to its contracting website a notice seeking bidders to provide the gear. City documents refer to the “Elite Defender” riot-control suit manufactured by HWI Gear and a 26-inch baton manufactured by Monadnock, plus 2,000 bags to carry them. The city also wants to buy 310 sets of riot-control gear — long-sleeve jackets,...
