"Police Misconduct: King County Sheriff's Department 8/16/17"

It must be naughty police day.

"Ex-Sheriff David Clarke expected to take job in Trump administration"

"Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is expected to take a job in the Trump administration after resigning Thursday, a report says.
"The tough-talking conservative will likely be serving in the White House, in a role that won’t require confirmation from the Senate, according to Politico.
"Sources told the outlet that this is because his nomination would surely face opposition from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.
"Clarke, known for his cowboy hat and no-holds-barred attitude, has been an outspoken social media user and avid Trump supporter.
"He’s been very vocal in the past about gun rights, the Black Lives Matter movement and illegal immigration — regularly speaking on television about the issues.
"'Stop trying to fix the police. Fix the ghetto,' Clarke has said on numerous occasions, in reference to previous calls from President Obama to reform law enforcement practices.
"On Thursday, Milwaukee County officials said they received a resignation letter from Clarke — but the document didn’t mention why he was leaving office, with more than a year left on his term.
"The sheriff instead referred questions to an email address, which he used to address the Politico report.
"'Will talk about my future plans next week,' Clarke said in an email.
"The 61-year-old had been under consideration for a job at the Department of Homeland Security — and even announced in May that he had taken it. But the agency never confirmed it and he later claimed that he withdrew his name from contention."

It must be police day in the media.

"‘This is crazy,’ sobs Utah hospital nurse as cop roughs her up, arrests her for doing her job"

"By all accounts, the head nurse at the University of Utah Hospital’s burn unit was professional and restrained when she told a Salt Lake City police detective he wasn’t allowed to draw blood from a badly injured patient.

"The detective didn’t have a warrant, first off. And the patient wasn’t conscious, so he couldn’t give consent. Without that, the detective was barred from collecting blood samples — not just by hospital policy, but by basic constitutional law.
"Still, Detective Jeff Payne insisted that he be let in to take the blood, saying the nurse would be arrested and charged if she refused.
"Nurse Alex Wubbels politely stood her ground. She got her supervisor on the phone so Payne could hear the decision loud and clear. 'Sir,' said the supervisor, 'you’re making a huge mistake because you’re threatening a nurse.'
"Payne snapped. He seized hold of the nurse, shoved her out of the building and cuffed her hands behind her back. A bewildered Wubbels screamed 'help me' and 'you’re assaulting me' as the detective forced her into an unmarked car and accused her of interfering with an investigation."

Bad day for the cops.

"‘We only kill black people,’ a cop told a woman — on camera. Now he’ll lose his job."

"The Georgia police officer who was captured on camera telling a woman during a traffic stop that law enforcement personnel 'only kill black people' says he’ll retire amid the backlash.
"Lt. Greg Abbott announced his intent to leave the Cobb County Police Department on Thursday, after his superiors told him he would be fired, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
"It is unclear whether officials would accept Abbott’s resignation or follow through with their plan to terminate him. With nearly 30 years of government service, the distinction could have a profound affect on his retirement benefits. Spokespersons for the police department did not immediately respond to a message from The Washington Post."
"Dash-cam video shows Abbott standing outside a vehicle during a DUI traffic stop in July 2016. A female passenger can be heard telling the officer that she did not want to put her hands down to reach for her phone because, 'I’ve just seen way too many videos of cops —.'
"'But you’re not black,' the officer interrupted. 'Remember, we only kill black people. Yeah, we only kill black people, right? All the videos you’ve seen, have you seen any white people get killed? You have.'"

This is horseshit.

"Busted, so to speak: 'Donald Trump' ecstasy tablets seized in Germany"


"German police say they have seized thousands of tablets of the party drug ecstasy in the shape of Donald Trump’s head, a haul with an estimated street value of $45,900.
"Police in Osnabrueck, in northwestern Germany, say they found the drugs while checking an Austrian-registered car on the A30 highway on Saturday.
"They say the people in the car, a 51-year-old man and his 17-year-old son, told officers they had been in the Netherlands to buy a vehicle but hadn’t succeeded so were returning home.
"Officers said they found about 5,000 of the orange, Trump-shaped ecstasy tablets along with a large, but unspecified quantity of cash.
"A judge on Sunday ordered the father and son kept in custody. The car was seized and towed away."

I've Switched to Chrome

Ever since I went to Windows 7, Firefox has been crashing a dozen or more times per day.  When it does crash, it usually offers you the opportunity to comment.  You can imagine what I wrote.  After awhile, I didn't get the option to add my 2 cents.

This morning it's crashed about 6 times already.  Fuck Firefox.

Dear Madame Zoltar

Calling all curs.  He-he.  Welcome to my blog.  I'm here to entertain and piss people off.  I often do the latter without even trying, or knowing.  Then again, the people of Racine have been screwed over by their "leaders" so many times with0out realizing it that I'm in "good" company.  The weather has been good lately, too.  It's cooling down a little as we aim for fall.  I've even seen some trees dropping leaves, and they weren't ashes.

Speaking of ash trees, it's a shame what the emerald ash borer has done.  It's decimated the east and moves steadily westward.  They are here.  We have tons of ash trees in Racine.  if they're not treated, they will die.  This reminds me of Dutch Elm Disuse from my childhood.  I lived on an elm tree lined street.  It was beautiful.  The elms vase-like shape made for a wonderful "tunnel effect."  Then Dutch Elm Disease struck and boom, my street was denuded.  That's the risk of monoculture (planting only one species of plant).  If something comes along, like the emerald ash borer, everything gets wiped out.  It's much smarter to plant a wide variety of trees so that the disappearance of one species isn't as devastating.  It's a lesson hard won and I would have hoped that the city Forestry Department would learn from the Dutch Elm disaster.  Apparently not.  Now watch the trees disappear.  It's ghastly.

Foxconn is making fools of us all.  As soon as they get some money, they'll be gone, on to the next community to fleece.  They talk about starting out with 3,000 employees.  I wonder where they'll get them from?  Many of our unemployed can't even read.  Many don't want o work, instead sucking on the pipe all day.  If it happens, I think we'll see a great influx of commuters from Milwaukee and maybe even Chicago.  If Foxconn stays, eventually there will be housing built near the plant.  Meanwhile, our students are illiterate.  The only job they're suited for is making babies and milking the system,  Too bad the ghetto doesn't recognize a good work ethic as a plus.  However, let me make one thing clear: I don't believe Foxconn will build a plant in Racine County, even if we do give them $3 billion.  Uh, that's quite a large incentive.  I know people who would kill for less.

I think our fantasy football draft was this past weekend.  Now I need to set up my team, which will roll over all opposition, especially the Mighty Bears, who I'll roll over two or three times.  I visited OrbsCorbs and his building manager was putting up football decorations.  She was using a yellow (gold) backing in all of the frames in the lobby and then she put paper footballs in them.  I told her she was missing the green for the Packers' green and gold.   She looked at my severely and said, "I don't dare.  We have some Chicago Bears fans here and they would rip those decorations right off of the walls."  I guess Bears fans are naturally nasty;; right, Ms. Tender Heart Bear?  Packer fans just want to eat brats and drink beer.  Bears fans should be run through a metal detector before they're allowed into the stadium.

Did you know that we have a fellow advice columnist in the Shepherd Express?  Her name is Ruthie:  She's so much more active in the community than I am.  I guess I'll just eat another Whopper with large fries and a Coke.

That's it, my friends and lovers.  Time to stop this and get on with the rest of the day.  I'm so glad you've taken the time to read my blog.  I hope you enjoy it.  The only thing I like more than readers is satisfied readers.

Enjoy the three day weekend that is approaching.  Be careful of the traffic and crowds.  I want all of my Irregulars to have a great time.  If you have young ones, keep a sharp eye on them.  Child molesters grow bolder by the day.  I love you all!

There's your sunrise over Racine today.  When I first saw it, the sun was bright red.  Unfortunately, my camera was in my truck downstairs.  By the time I had retrieved it, the sun was yellow again.

"On Many Sides"

From the Shepherd Express:

By Art Kumbalek 16 hours ago

 I’m Art Kumbalek and man oh man manischewitz what a world, ain’a? So listen, I’ve received a couple, three gung-ho thumbs-ups for the bigger type and the briefer length of last week’s essay, which was a necessity due to the troubled eyes I got saddled with from taking a gander at that goddamn eclipse, what the fock.
So what say we go two-for-two in the type-and-length department this week, ’cause this really ought to be my gala back-to-school address to young and old alike. Yes, my yearly paean to this rite of passage—or flunkage, such as it is for the kid who’s got to go through last year’s grade again—offered to prepare the community for the rejoicing that shall come the day after Labor Day when our young Einsteins get their loins girded for another nine-month sentence of class learning required to fertilize our society’s fervent prayer that our god-fearing nation remain Top-Dog-of-the-Planet for the foreseeable future, a really great future. Or something like that.
Yeah yeah, it ought to be my gala back-to-school address EXCEPT I’m apparently too late for that kind of essay, so the only thing I’m left to say is this:
“August 14? MPS? You got to be jerking my beefaroni. They started school on August focking 14 already? Back-to-school, shback-to-school. Did they ever leave? Jesus H. Christ, how much math you’ll never use does a kid need? Sorry, you kids. And you’re right. You’re getting screwed. If I’m shocked to learn that school fires up way before Labor Day, I can imagine how you must be feeling—your idyllic idyll of shoplifting and burning bugs with a magnifying glass circumcised in its prime, it is to weep, what the fock.
“Cripes, sure seems to me like some nitwit bid out the school system to the Japanese to run, which means that since you’re starting on Aug. 14, next year you’ll probably get out after a half-day on Aug. 13. Hey, maybe that afternoon you and the family can squeeze in that trip to the Grand focking Canyon you’ve always talked about before school commences bright and early the next morning, ain’a?”
And so I would like to write the following:
School days, I believe, are the unhappiest in the whole span of human existence. They are full of dull, unintelligible tasks, new and unpleasant ordinances, brutal violations of common sense and common decency.
Too bad it’s already been written, an age ago by this guy named Mencken, newspaperman, editor, critic out of Baltimore. And you betcha, he’s also the guy who wrote: Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy. Amen and praise the lord, ’cause I’m, Art Kumbalek and I told you so.

"Business or Exploitation? | Mental Health | :30 Report w/ Logic"

I was part of the problem once. In my early sobriety, I used to donate cartons of cigarettes to the wacko ward.
