On my favorite KOMO Web site today, there is a sad story about a King County worker assaulted, right outside the King County Courthouse in (used-to-be) beautiful Downtown Seattle. This is so disgusting that I am going to copy some of that story for you here. This is what the City of Seattle and County of King have become. Please do follow the link and read the whole story.

In September, Kara was assaulted just outside the King County Courthouse after leaving work to head to the train.

They blast ABC […]

Join Jim and Greg as they serve up three new martinis Thursday!

They also shudder as a majority of Americans favor rewriting the first amendment and […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. New Jersey Sheriff Sues the New Jersey Attorney General

 

We need to see more men like Sheriff Robert Nolan taking action against the injustice of creating sanctuary states. He’s suing the New Jersey AG, who’s defying federal law in order to turn New Jersey into a sanctuary state, and Nolan wants no part of it. So Sheriff Nolan and Cape May County’s Board of Chosen Freeholders are suing in federal court to challenge their AG’s directive, barring Nolan and his officers from cooperating with ICE.

The actions of Attorney General Grewel are blatantly political. He’s using worn-out rhetoric and misleading his constituents. He points out that the law enforcement officers are supposed to enforce state criminal offenses, and the federal government is supposed to handle immigration violations. And his stated concern is insulting to the intelligence of his own officers:

The Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) is demanding a pay increase, the offer of a 16% increase was not enough to avoid a teacher’s strike. While the Mayor and the CTU wrestle around about how much the serfs will have to pay to educate the little scamps the mass shootings in Chicago continue. Although the definition of mass shootings is subjective it doesn’t much matter to the victims, those killed and the wounded. Last weekend in Chicago 5 were killed and 37 were wounded.

The month of October to date:

The Portland Police Bureau released the transcript of their investigation into the officer shooting of a mentally ill man on the streets of Portland. The 555 pages of investigation work is far more important than the Mueller Report and the amount of time that has been spent on trying to nullify an election. The will full ignorance, and misplaced compassion of refusing to address the problems of the mentally ill by turning them loose on the streets is a national disgrace. It is not only a disgrace, but it’s also dangerous.

The story from OregonLive:

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America look forward to Clint Eastwood’s new film about how the FBI and media convinced America Richard Jewell was the Olympic Park bomber back in 1996, ruined the man’s life, and obviously learned very little from this debacle. They’re hopeful the movie will tell the […]

On September 15, Ronald Davis lost his life after being shot by Steven Mattson, a St. Paul, MN, police officer. Mr. Davis decided to use his vehicle to ram Ofc. Mattson’s squad car. After hitting the squad car, Davis ran towards Mattson with a knife and attempted to stab him.

Why the late Davis decided to attack Mattson will never be known, but why community activists took to the streets to demand justice for Ronald Davis is only too well-known to street cops. Davis was black and Mattson is white. That’s all community activists needed to know. They are woke, and now they need to awaken the community and demand justice. Mattson may be awakened in the days to come from nightmares as he relives the incident.

When I lived in California, I noticed that they had a special way to enact laws that School House Rock never taught me. And I’m seeing it being done here in Austin now.

Here’s how it works: Say the legislature wants to enact a law that is very unpopular because it will cost everyone $100 a month. It would never get passed because everyone would howl unceasingly. Instead, they propose a law that will cost everyone $10,000 a month and when everyone howls and protests and demonstrates against it, the legislature will back down and say, whew, you citizens were right, that is too much. Let’s modify the proposal so that it only costs $100 a month. Everyone breathes a sigh of relief, protesters go home, and everyone is happy that they stopped a disaster.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Police Pursuits: What Would You Do?

 

My fellow Ricochetti, I invite you to imagine yourself as a police officer on patrol. While driving in your squad car you hear a radio broadcast of a robbery that has just occurred, one in which the suspect shot the victim. You are supplied with a description of the suspect and his getaway car, and moments later you spot him driving. You radio for backup and continue to follow at a distance, and when your backup arrives you try to pull the suspect over. Rather than stop, he accelerates away and a pursuit begins.

Conditions for the chase are relatively safe at the outset, with light traffic and no outrageously erratic driving by the suspect. But as the suspect’s desperation increases, so too does his recklessness, and before long he sideswipes a car, drives on a sidewalk, and does other things indicating he will try anything to escape. You are informed the car the suspect is driving in stolen, offering you no clue as to the suspect’s identity.

60% of illegal firearms recovered in Chicago come from outside IL—mostly from states dominated by coward Republicans like you who refuse to enact commonsense gun legislation. Keep our name out of your mouth.” – Lori Lightfoot, Chicago Mayor and national disgrace

This was said in response to Ted Cruz describing the failure of gun control in Chicago. This ignores the continuous and persistent refusal of the local prosecutors to attach serious penalties to gun crime, in some case not even requiring bail. This ignores the inability of the CPD to stop illegal guns from being smuggled into the city. It ignores the massive disparity in gun crime between the other states and Chicago

In this age of binary choices, political pettifoggery, and journalists who are more interested in promoting a narrative rather than telling the entire story I’ll offer you something a bit different.
