Quote of the Day – Darrell Issa (9/25/2014)

Eric Holder is the most divisive U.S. attorney general in modern history,… by needlessly injecting politics into law enforcement, Attorney General Holder’s legacy has eroded more confidence in our legal system than any attorney general before him.

He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.

An Interesting Jury

Things are bad and they’re only getting worse.  Many run their lives from an apathetic point of view.  If it doesn’t directly affect me it isn’t my problem.  There is a problem with that though, it does affect you, it affects everyone.   It is an erosion of your personal liberty whether you want to currently exercise that choice or not.

It is time to start standing up.  It is time to force your voice to be heard.  Neither party cares about liberty or freedom.  They care about money and power.  They have been slowly turning up the heat so they can steal more money and more, it’s time to jump out of the pot.

I remind you of this great document.  It reminds of of not just our rights but also our responsibilities in such matters.  Are you OK with standing in front of that jury?

SSCC North Bend OR

A former North Bend police officer avoided a prison sentence Tuesday when he pleaded guilty in federal court in Eugene to tipping off an illegal steroid distributor about an ongoing investigation.

William Blair Downing, 43, was placed on probation for five years and ordered to perform 400 hours of community service as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors. He also must undergo a mental health evaluation and will have all of his medications monitored while on probation.

If it’s so minor that he tipped off the criminal about the ongoing investigation, one should wonder should the activities in question be illegal?  Maybe it’s just to create a protective racket where those who work for the state are the only one’s allowed to benefit.  Not to mention the fact the officer in question was using steroids himself.

State Sponsored Criminal: William Blair Downing

Because illegal drugs are only a problem because we make them one.

SSCC Schaumburg

A Schaumburg police officer has been suspended with pay for allegedly keeping a gun that had been turned in to the department, and the same officer also faces scrutiny for a case involving heroin that allegedly went missing from a crime scene, police said.

Now evidently the officer offered to buy the firearm but the people refused saying they wanted it “properly disposed of.” Which in my world means sold to an FFL to help close up the deficit.  Evidently he felt that the law didn’t apply to him.  Which given this is Illinois it isn’t a shocker.

State Sponsored Criminal: Officer John Doe

Because the laws only apply to the little people, when you’re a cop you get piles of exemptions.

SSCC Ashland

A former Ashland Police officer has pleaded guilty to federal drug and gun charges.

32-year-old Melvin “JR” Schoch Jr. pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute Oxycodone and possessing a firearm in during the commission of a drug crime, during a hearing in U.S. District Court in Ashland. Two other counts from a January superseding indictment were dropped as part of the plea agreement.

Why’d this guy really make the count given the guilty plea?

Schoch, who was on duty with the Ashland Police at time and armed with duty weapon, admitted to entering the residence under the guise of having a search warrant.

Nice using the drug war to steal drugs from people and then sell them.  Is anyone really surprised by this type of revelation?

State Sponsored Criminal: Melvin Schoch Jr.

Because the reason you go work for the state is so you can be above the law.

SSCC Cleveland

A dozen Cleveland police supervisors face internal discipline charges stemming from a chase that saw officers fire 137 shots and kill a fleeing driver and his passenger, the city’s police chief said Tuesday.

Both the victims in this case had a prior history and were on drugs at the time of the car chase.  The police claim the chase began with a report of gunfire.  Neither a weapon or shell casings were found in the car.  This could mean they ditched a revolver or that the police made it up.

The icing on the cake though is the following:

An internal police review showed that both officers and supervisors broke department policies. The chief said a review is continuing into whether any officers will be disciplined.

So in other words they did it cowboy style.

State Sponsored Criminal: John Doe

Because by all means endanger the lives of citizens and ignore department policy in so doing.

SSCC TSA

But a TSA supervisor was himself caught on videotape last month stealing 12 Tylenol pills from a passenger’s luggage in Syracuse, according to a police report.

Stealing Tylenol, really?  I thought by the headline he was stealing prescription pain killers.  He was either fired or resigned that day and there has been no word of criminal charges.

State Sponsored Criminal Jeremy Hemingway

Because with the war on drugs, when you see some drugs steal them.  You can figure out what they are later.

SSCC #567-#568: Irving

CBS-11 has learned two state troopers involved in a controversial roadside cavity search of two North Texas women have been indicted on criminal charges by a Dallas County Grand Jury.

CBS-11 has learned that one of the troopers, Kelley Helleson, who left the courthouse after testifying Friday, is charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of official oppression.

Oh but it gets better folks.

CBS-11 has learned the other trooper in the case, David Farrell, is charged with theft after one of the women said her prescription bottle of the painkiller hydrocodone was missing after the search.

They searched the women in public on the side of an exit ramp.  As an FYI, the officers didn’t find any drugs, further validating that they didn’t really have probable cause.  Nothing says I’m with law enforcement quite like violating someone’s rights under the incorrect misbelief that you just can.

State Sponsored Criminal #567: Kelly Helleson

#568: David Farrel

Because when you’re having a boring night, why not sexually assault two people on the side of the highway.  You’re just trying to fight the war on drugs right?
