SSCC Latah County

Cyber bullying is a serious concern among parents across the nation, but one Pullman woman said a local law enforcement agency bullied her brother on Facebook, and she said it contributed to his decision to commit suicide.

So it appears that the Latah County Sheriff’s office took to bullying a man through Facebook recently to harass and intimidate.  Now there are some questions, however even the the Sheriff himself stated the following:

In an official statement, Rausch said, "It has never been my policy to include editorializing in media releases pertaining to the location and apprehension of persons wanted by the court." Rausch also personally apologized to Smith.

So will any of the numerous laws that cover cyber bullying be invoked against the aggressor in this case?  No, he will just receive “additional training.”

Because it’s only harassment and intimidation when you don’t have a badge.

SSCC–Auburn Washington (My Home Town)

Former Auburn police officer John Michael Clemmons pleaded guilty in King County Superior Court Monday to assault for fondling a woman during a traffic stop.

Go read the account.  This pervert that received state protection and exemption.  Of course his fellow officers were there in a show of support, because heaven forbid they stand up for the people they’re sworn to protect when it’s their own abusing them.

Because when you’re a cop, you can cop a feel of whoever the hell you want and if they fight back it’s assaulting a police officer.

SSCC Honorable Mention Cherryville

The plea agreement was filed in U.S. District Court on Monday. Court documents allege Burgess embezzled more than $11,000 of city funds by forcing the Cherryville Finance Director, Bonny Alexander, to issue Cherryville city checks to "The Great Outdoors, Inc." for purchase of firearms for Burgess’ personal use.

Due to the fact that firearms are involved and this individual is claimed by those who would take away our rights as being “anointed” is only seems proper he makes the list.

Because when you’re a cop and work for the taxpayer, take their money and use it to buy toys that many claim you should have but the tax payer can’t.

SSCC #375: Update

William H. Smith, 43, was arrested for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (OWI) – a 93-day misdemeanor – after he crashed his vehicle on July 7, 2012, in Chippewa County.

According to test results, Smith’s blood alcohol content was .13 at the time of his arrest compared to the .08 drunk driving standard.

William’s trial began Tuesday and concluded Thursday. The six-person jury deliberated on the misdemeanor charge for two hours before reaching Thursday’s verdict of not guilty.

It appears though that most likely he got away not because he wasn’t guilty, but because of the safeguards in the law for the innocent.  For you see his brothers in harms mishandled material and the process of getting the warrant so he could escape the first trial and it interjected reasonable doubt of the second.

Again, see the fact they had to get prosecutors from out of the county.  So don’t worry he’ll be back on the roads in no time in a tax payer funded vehicle.

What a View

Last weekend on our way home from Spokane the wife and I stopped by Steptoe Butte on the way back home.  I took hundreds of pictures for panoramic as well as pictures for use in calendars etc.

It’s going to take some time but eventually I’ll get them all done.  In the mean time here’s the one panoramic I’ve done as well as some of the other solo pics.

This is only a thumbnail of about half the panoramic.

Jefferson Griffeath – Facebook Chat

[For full context you probably need to go watch “End of Watch”.  Which is honestly a comedy with some emotional strings of brotherhood tied in.

Also know that Jefferson feels about the same way I do about cops.  We don’t hate them, we under stand their purpose, but a decent number of them seem to sign away their independent thought when putting on the badge.  The best example is the speech at the beginning of the movie.  There are a lot of cops that feel exactly like that speech instead of saying, “That law isn’t right and I shouldn’t be enforcing it.”  They don’t see themselves as the check and balance they should be in the system.

Well I was chatting with Jefferson about some other things and mentioned I was watching the comedy on his recommendation.  I made a comment related to the end, I’m not going to spoil it, and the above was his response.

I couldn’t stop laughing until I started coughing. –B ]
