Has there been any consideration given to renegotiating contracts with the police union to ban, among other things, "internal investigations?" One way to stop the protests would be to address the concerns. ... See MoreSee Less
Solve something? When it can always be made worse by force?
FORCE FUN, SOLVE MAKE SAD.
I don’t disagree that there certainly are issue with police departments. However, if you have no intimate knowledge of how a police department runs, then you won’t understand why internal investigations are conducted.
Do you think the unions want change? :: I don’t ::
“Address the concerns?” Radical concept!
You know what amazes me? Cop fiction universally portrays internal affairs as the enemy. Cops who investigate cops aren’t considered “real cops.”
And this isn’t just in SOME cop fiction. It’s ALL cop fiction. Including that which is written by former cops.
Regardless of how effective they truly are at ferreting out bad cops, why is this a universal theme? How IA and, furthermore, the press is ALWAYS the enemy?
Explain them to us Dawn...
The world can survive a few criminals and con-artists in our midst.
But, when the criminality has been institutionalized in our society, in our courts, in our monetary system, in our DOJ, in our government and worst of all, in our LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS,
a certain inevitability becomes agonizingly clear.
This harbinger has arrived, it’s time for EVERYONE to get involved.
During the Obama administration the DOJ, several federal courts and intelligence agencies were converted into an interconnected, organized criminal enterprise.
Many of these entrenched criminals remain embedded in the federal bureaucracy to this day.
Christopher Wray and William Barr have done nothing to bring these criminals to justice.
In fact, they are continuing to block efforts to uncover the unprecedented abuse that occurred.
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation was illegally predicated on at the very least illegally obtained and more likely, intelligence agency manufactured disinformation and then the whole mess was / is classified so there can be no inquiry by the public.
That debacle led to an effort by corrupt politicians like Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Schumer and Nadler to illegally impeach our duly elected President, DJT.
As former CIA whistleblower John Stockwell said:
“They have a license to kill, but also they took that as license to smuggle drugs and do all kinds of things against our laws, international laws and every principle of nations working together to build a more healthy and peaceful world”
Sedition? I think so.
Treason? Quite possibly.
Fraud? Definitely, the taxpayers pay for it all... multi-millions...
Now is the time to be concerned...
Sidney Powell told Sara Carter. “Clapper and Brennan and others knew that Flynn intended to audit and clean out the corrupt intelligence agencies. They and the FBI targeted him to destroy with this false prosecution. Every day the government delays in dismissing this persecution is a disgrace for anything called “Justice” and an enormous waste of taxpayer dollars.”
General Flynn formally asked to withdraw his guilty plea in January and filed a motion to dismiss the case, accusing federal prosecutors of “egregious government misconduct.”
The Obama team weaponized DOJ, FBI and other intel agencies.
Read the reports.
Barr is now exposing the corruption.
Remember when Hillary Clinton and her minions said:
“NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW”
“Barr said what happened to Trump was one of the greatest travesties in American history.
Even more alarming was the pattern of events after the campaign to sabotage Trump’s presidency.”
If only stopping the protests were the goal. I fear Civil War is the goal instead.
What. A. Concept, Paula. You would think, wouldn't you, that someone in charge might have started to do this already. But, no.....
Yea, how about more money, working conditions, and benefits in exchange for not murdering innocent unarmed black people?
Seems like a fair compromise. 😃
Paula, you have always been way too sensible. This world doesn’t deserve you.
I think it's a vicious circle. Asking 'police-type outfits' to give up anything that gives them 'coercive power'. There are gains to be made but I think there are historical and healing reasons why as a society we are resorting to 'public expression' but it needs to be a multi-layered approach. I think this battle needs to start to be waged in the Courts. Too bad the courts are 'kinda behind'. But I see the light of justice at the end of this tunnel. Of course, when something like a pandemic comes along and we see ALL politicians (save a few) politicize it in the critical first months, well, now opportunity for meaningful change and not parts of the same cycles. "Small things make big changes" someone said to me once.
After stealing the cookies, I asked myself if I had stolen the cookies and discovered I had not!
With law enforcement pattern labor contracts, negotiations to include changes in accountability and conduct monitoring by independent organizations will be copied once adopted in new contracts. First one is the hardest.
Nah you've got to dismantle the unions and #defundthepolce
Bingo Paula Poundstone, to be effective the investigations should be external. D.A.s largely affirm the police no matter what. Also someone needs to take a look at qualified privilege, and its limits
The teachers, doctors and police all need strong internal auditing bodies.
Keep Using Your platform. You’re brilliant.
I mean there are always ongoing attempts to work with the police. Nobody's first move is rioting. The polices unions are almost never willing to negotiate. In my city a law was just assed to reduce (not eliminate just reduce) their immunity from prosecution and every police union and organization lost their minds over it. Wouldn't negotiate a middle ground, wouldn't meet with lawmakers just flat out refused to even have a conversation. Law passed anyway. Turns out most of the state was not impressed with their "I'm gonna hold my breath until you buy me that you" method of negotiation.
And undo all the Republicans hard work? They'll never go for it.
That is a superb idea! What better way to honor him?
Now all we gotta do is get Moscow Mitch to sign it!!
Hope so , anyway.
More impact on the country as a whole than renaming a bridge. (That is a good idea too!)
People been saying this...but you know, the Majority Leader of the Senate, Mitch McConnell, aka Moscow Mitch, just sent the Senators home. There have been bills on his desk since the first day this Congress opened HR1 to protect our elections, to make Election Day a national holiday, to send money to local jurisdictions to help them protect against any attempts to hack the election — SITTING ON MC CONELL’S DESK SINCE DAY 1. He is a traitor to this country
I heard Mark Shields propose this yesterday on the PBS news hour. It's a great idea.
Shields and Brooks are “must see“ TV for me on the Friday night edition of the PBS News Hour.
Thank you. I keep getting this stuff about a bridge.
I second that motion
The Republicans are wearing me down, Paula. They'd never see the value in that idea.
But what if the wrong people vote? Have you thought of that?
Do you want the US to waste precious tax payer money on school and education? Where would we get the hired help if everyone gets a good education? Those Bentleys don’t polish themselves!
Been sitting on McConnell's desk.
Best idea ever
So sick of suppressing voters with lack of voting by mail and too few voting machines
The best way to honor all warriors of justice is to continue their good works...
“No on is above the law”
“None are so hopelessly enslaved, as those who falsely believe they are free. The truth has been kept from the depth of their minds by masters who rule them with lies. They feed them on falsehoods till wrong looks like right in their eyes.”
-Johann von Goethe
The FED creates “money” (Fiat currency) that it does not have and loans it to the banks and mortgage companies who are participating in the global financial fraud. The FED collects interest on these loans that it did not earn.
The banks and mortgage companies also attach interest to this “money” that it should not have and in turn, loans it out into the economy.
The banks and the mortgage companies and their employees make a LOT of money in this way.
They won’t / don’t want the fraudulent system to change, they, their families and their lifestyles are DEPENDENT on it.
In essence it’s a gigantic game of musical chairs. The banks and mortgage companies and their partners in crime, are able to remove real assets out of the economy by wielding financial leverage that they should not have.
If everyone was able to create “money” out of nothing, the defect in this fraudulent system would be quickly exposed.
Even legitimate businesses are forced to participate in the financial fraud or be crushed by its competitors that are willing to.
In this way, given enough time, this racketeering operation and it’s criminal partners will eventually own EVERYTHING of any significance.
Rothschild himself, in a moment of pure arrogance, probably expressed it best when he said:
“The few who can understand the system will be either so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class, while, on the other hand, that great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that Capital derives from the system, will bear its burden without complaint and, perhaps, without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests."
The last president to point out this criminal operation was JFK.
(We all know how that ended)
Qanon has also talked about this criminal operation and the people and families behind it.
They are the puppet masters who are manipulating the crooked politicians, not just here in the states, but around the globe.
What if Q = President Trump?
What if this criminal enterprise could finally be shut down world wide?
If we’re able to solve this one problem, all the other problems would solve themselves.
Come join the fight for justice @

Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins
“...During history, empires have depended on their military power. Provided that they desired to dominate territory, they sent their soldiers and took it. Enemies may argue about these claims, then this may cause a war, yet that was seldom a disincentive. The quarrel was basically an inescapable outcome of implementing imperial business.
This estimation became different after WW II. And then, as elder European forces diminished, two brand new empires came out, the Soviet Union and its rival the United States. Both of them had the atomic bomb meaning that a war between them had the possibility to bring about nuclear armageddon. This was the disincentive and it made the US implement a new tactic for imperial management.”
"But he's (Putin) a killer," O'Reilly said to Trump.
"There are a lot of killers. You think our country's so innocent?" Trump replied.

I went to Summer Camp too! And we never used WOHELO as a Hello or a Good bye.
Was he wearing a red shirt? Oh, wait. Wrong series, and no color. So never mind.

Wohelo was a Campfire Girls thing.
Della and Perry had really low gravely voices. I conger up the concept of a smoker's voice so would have them both puffing away and coughing and waving their hand thru the smoke with frog horn bass voices on mock up pool noodle size cigarette props and their conversation congratulating themselves on cutting down to one cigarette a day.......
Speaking of unsolved mysteries...
The original mockingbird:
Dan Rather was allowed to view the Zapruder film, which was classified at the time, and report on what he saw 12 years before it was finally released to the public in 1975.
How can this be explained and why did he lie?
What else have they lied about?
and why does no one talk about “Little Jimmy Long Hair” any more - what secrets are being hidden ?
Why is Perry Mason now a private investigator (on HBO)? I don't think Erle would be very happy about this, putting Paul Drake out of work. 😎

Of course, this is not really about public health or politics is it?
“Over the past two decades the Clintons have created nothing short of a global network consisting of influential foreign politicians, oligarchs and royalty, exercising what Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel called "the cult of unregulated globalism." The fall of the House of Clinton may bring an end to this globalist structure, he told Sputnik.
"The Clintons — and the Bushes and Obamas — have embraced the cult of unregulated 'globalism' wherein a small band of cronies drawn from the billionaire class, multinational companies, international nonprofits, academia, and media swarm around the world trying to dominate the political agenda, as they move financial markets, and put deals together," Charles Ortel, a Wall Street analyst and investigative journalist, told Sputnik.
According to the analyst, this approach gained momentum starting around 1988 and allowed globalist elites to build even greater fortunes out of being able to control any national government.
Over the past two decades the Clintons have managed to create a sort of a global network involving prominent foreign politicians, tycoons and powerful clans. Many of them have long been generous donors to the Clinton Foundation, dubbed by Ortel, who has been conducting a private inquiry into the entity for the last few years, the "largest unprosecuted charity fraud ever attempted."
