From The Police Blotter: DC Police Chief Tells The Truth

 

The justice system is broken. There are a lot of experts out there on policing, and some of them have no clue about policing. Police officers are opting for early retirement, and some are just resigning.

Regardless of what you might be hearing from the White House, mayors, and city council members crime rates are soaring. The failure to set bail, or to sentence violent offenders, the seeds of the whirlwind are being sown.

The State of Connecticut conducted a study on the recidivism rate of individuals that were in possession of a firearm when they were arrested. The recidivism rate was about 73% for those individuals. I have two observations about the people I arrested during my time on the streets. Some were just stupid, and some were evil. Regardless of which category they were in they were all capable of mayhem.

Judges, and the new Soros prosecutors are confused about who is the victim, and who is the criminal. When George Soros passes away I’ll pour myself a wee dram of a good single malt, but I won’t shed any tears.

The following video contains remarks from the DC police chief.

    Which probably means he’ll be fired soon.

    But it’s DC.  NOBODY is allowed to tell the truth in DC.  Perhaps especially when it comes to law enforcement.

    The only question might be whether he gets fired before or after Biden announces that he (the police chief) “ain’t black.”

    Vice.com headline:  “Tom Cotton will not shut up about putting more people in jail”

    The USA does indeed have an underincarceration problem.  I hope this Police Chief is able to keep his job.

    That bastard needed to have been dead years ago.  He looks like death warmed over.  With any luck, we’ll be rid of him soon.

    Aren’t his kids just as bad?  And there’s MORE of them!

    I think there is a lot of overlap.

    The problem with Soros is he has funded his various social caused into perpetuity, much as Henry Ford did with the Ford Foundation.  He will die, but his vision and ideas will live on with nearly unlimited financial support.

    Well, if the grifters do their grifting from his foundation money, it may not last very long.  We can hope.

    I sure hope so! Finally a good use for them!

    But the Ford Foundation hardly represents Henry’s views these days. AIDL, All Institutions Drift Left. So the Soros outfit will probably get worse.

    Or maybe they’ll just gamble it all away in Vegas, Monte Carlo….   Here’s hoping!

    Love this guy! “…our officers recovered a firearm off of an individual over there” Repeated 3 times.

    When guns are outlawed, only the criminals will have guns

    They are not confused in the slightest. The bug is the feature, as more eggs need to be broken to make their utopian socialist omelette.
