I always like to say that the only thing worse than cops is knowing that we need them.
Now anyone that’s been reading my blog for a while knows that I’m not a big fan of the police. They watch what I do. They inspect me. They stick their big blue noses in my business. They wait for me to screw up so they can hassle me. They’re dying for a reason to interact with me and prevent me from going about my business. They’re hunters hunting innocent (as well as guilty) citizens.
That being said, a cop was shot a few days ago in Massachusetts. They got the three alleged scumbags that did it. I wish that the police shot them all right then and there. When someone shoots a cop it shows such a disregard for the rules of our civil society that they need to be put down like a rabid raccoon. If they got the right guys than he is done, execute him or store him in a shabby cell where can can spend a miserable lonely life until he dies, hopefully hungry and cold.
Unfortunately, as the economy continues to deteriorate I expect there to be more violence against the police.
So I thought it would be a good time to post a Powerpoint presentation that the Oakland PD and Coroner’s Office put together after that criminal in Oakland murdered those four cops. Please note I don’t endorse the Orange County Sheriff Coroner’s Office and they don’t endorse this blog. Maybe you can learn something. The last of the slides definitely has some good advice.
And LEOs although I’m not a big fan of the needless interactions with citizens, I respect the job you do and please stay safe out there.
Get outside everyday!
I was out doing my walk and saw three turkey vultures sitting in a couple of trees. I knew they were turkey vultures by their red heads. These things are really large birds with maybe a 5-6 foot wingspan.
