The Downfall of Federal Law Enforcement

The Downfall of Federal Law Enforcement

I hate to write these things when I’m pissed but the current circumstances leave me no choice.  There was a time in the Law Enforcement and the Criminal Justice community when Federal Law Enforcement Agencies were held in high esteem, but those times have come and gone.

I started to have my doubts when “Fast & Furious” came about and it became common knowledge that the ATF sold guns to the Mexican Cartels who in turn executed a Border Patrol Agent with one of those fire arms. I used to call the local ATF Office once in a while and ask, “How many Border Patrol Agents have you kill today?”. But with all the other Federal Agencies following down that  same dark path I’d spend all my free time on the telephone.

I could call Homeland Security and ask them “How many terrorists have you let in the country today?” But I think I would get the same response I get from ATF.  Then again I could call the TSA and ask them how many bombs have you found today but there too busy frisking white haired old ladies to answer the phone. Then again I could call the U.S. Secret Service but they’re all shacked up with hookers supplied by the same Mexican Drug Cartels that the ATF sold the guns to. Then again I could call an IRS Agent but they’re too busy pleading the 5th before Congress and spying on Tea Party Members.  Then there are the new EPA Police now armed and dangerous and the Homeland Security Police, which I quit haven’t figured out their roll out yet except they’re the reason there is a shortage of ammo and then there are the U.S. Land Management Police whose job it is to throw ranches off the property they’ve been grassing on for years. Get my drift?  Today though was kind of the final straw before taking pen to hand, when I read:

“Counter Violent Extremism (CVE) Training Do’s and Don’ts”; Who writes this stuff, CAIR.
This is perfect example of the tail wagging the dog. A few egg heads who think they know what’s best are now running the show. They are either the most incompetent individuals on the face of the earth or the most skilled. They are undermining the professionalism that Federal Law Enforcement . If they are anything like the Homeland Security female who was recently interrogated in front of Congress by Representatives Trey Gouty and Jim Jordan, I’d error on the side of incompetence but then again.

I know jobs are hard to come by but how can any Federal Law Enforcement Agent look at their self in a mirror in today’s world. They have got to come to the realization that whatever professionalism they had is now gone and they must make amends to correct that behavior. That may mean kicking their bosses ass but enough is enough.

Hate the Unions Day

the Unions Day


            My day started off like any other
day. The dogs got me up so they could go out to do their morning business while
I started the coffee pot and plopped a couple of pieces of bread in the toaster.
After letting the dogs in I settled down for that first cup of coffee and
downloaded the morning issue of the Columbus Dispatch to my Kindle.

            As always I checked the obituaries
first to see if I was among the dead but there stumbled across a memorial to
the late John E. Scales, president of Local 423 Labor’s Union. A memorial to a
crook and a felon. I played a small part in his conviction but a large part in
the conviction of Robert White, who followed in John’s footsteps, become the
president of Local 423 and a convicted felon. 
Enough about Local 423, the Union of Felons.

            I put that aside and headed to the
Post Office at Beechwood and Livingston to mail a Priority Mail package. There
I was greeted by a line that ran out the door. Let’s see the USPS pays millions
of dollars in advertising to get us to ship Priority & Express mail but due
to the Postal Union’s requirements only one employ can work behind the counter.
To make matters worse only a few of the fifteen people in the line in front of
me spoke any English.  Guess they’re used
of receiving their mail via goat cart or donkey. But in all it took me longer
to drop off my package than it will take it to get to its final destination.

            So after my visit to the Post Office
I continued on my way and stopped at Speedway to get gas, another mistake. Gas
prices had risen some thirty cents per gallon. 
Right now there is more oil in this country than ever in our history.
There’s a glut. But thanks to the United Steel Workers of America and their
refinery strike gasoline is not being produced from that oil. Guess the United
Steel Workers of America need to bring in more money to funnel to the
Democratic Party. All of us on pensions and fixed income thank you.

            And speaking of the Democratic Party
and their Union the Black Caucus I must admit to my mistake here. I stupidly
voted for Joyce Beatty as the Congressional Representative of my district.
Well  when her Union, The Black Caucus,
apologues to every ex, current or retired police office in American for their
continued perpetuation of the “Hands Up, Don’t Shot” lie I might consider
voting for another Democrat in my lifetime.   But don’t count on it.
