Blue Lives Matter

A giant photo image file. ‘It’s 42 degrees outside. You’re lonely and hungry. You put your head down to try and forget the scream of hunger echoing in your mind. Then you hear the sound of an engine stop.’ – Love What Matters <---- click to see.

Imagine this: you are sitting on the side of the road, and for whatever reason, everything you own can fit into a backpack. It's 42° degrees outside. You're lonely and hungry. You put your head down to try and forget the scream of hunger echoing in your mind.

Then you hear the sound of an engine stop. You look up to see a uniformed officer walking towards you. Your mind flutters thinking of everything you might be doing wrong. Suddenly this officer sits down, pulls out lunch, and not only takes away your hunger but your loneliness too.

This is exactly what Patti Crowe Walker and I witnessed on our lunch break today. I don't know this man or this officer, but what I do know is that today they made a difference. A difference in the way I think and hopefully a difference in the way you think as well. I've always supported the blue community but something about this officer truly touched my heart. This is the side of law enforcement no one sees.

Social media shows the tragedy and hides the testimony. This Sheriff's deputy made a difference today, and no amount of hatred towards his profession can take that away.

Among all of the troubles in today's world, we all too often forget one important thing: that we are all just human. We are not black or white, Democrat or Republican, Liberal or Conservative, we are only human. Everyone deserves love and respect. Everyone deserves to feel important.

Our beliefs or opinions shouldn't affect how we treat other people. We all need each other and it’s about time we pick ourselves up off ground and start acting like it.

So, share this and see if we can show this officer that his act of kindness didn’t go unnoticed, and pay it forward the next time you feel called to show someone love in a world filled with hate.

In 2003 we were considering moving out of Florida. The people who were moving in since Al Gore lost the election were mostly New Yorkers. There were not very nice. The US Army was slowly moving things from another base to Ft. Benning,GA. Luanne was looking around and was going to pay for four soldiers meals at a McDonalds.

When she asked the manager if that was possible, he said: "It's not necessary, we have it covered." Being more insistent, she asked again. The manager replied by showing her a pickle jar with many hundred dollar bills and other smaller bills. "We get convoys of a hundred uniformed men. No soldier in uniform pays for his meals here. Interested in the jar Luanne asks the manager something about securing the money because for her entire life in Wisconsin nobody was allowed to carry arms.

The manager said something to the rear and six workers put their hands on their hips with one showing a big revolver.

Her call back to me while I was still in Florida, said: "It looks like Alabama is not like Florida!" Manatee County had a 125% increase in population and we were ready to move out. I still like it here.

Off-duty officer stops man headed to shoot up a church.

The man was on his way to fulfill a "prophecy" was stopped by an off-duty policeman 250 miles away from the church he threatened.

SEGUIN, Texas — A Southeast Texas police chief says the handgun a man was carrying while on his way to a church to fulfill a "prophecy" was stolen days earlier from a home.

Vidor police Chief Rod Carroll said Monday that it's not clear if 33-year-old Tony Dwayne Albert II was involved in the theft of the gun or obtained it later.

Carroll says Albert, who was found with the gun, extra ammunition and a face shield, had apparently threatened a Baptist church in Vidor, which is near the border with Louisiana.

Albert was stopped Sunday by an off-duty policeman in the San Antonio suburb of Seguin, which is 250 miles from Vidor. It's not clear what brought Albert to the San Antonio area.

Carroll says family members have told investigators that Albert has a history of mental illness.

A waitress in suburban San Antonio says an armed man who said he was on his way to a church to fulfill "a prophecy" when he was arrested had asked her for directions to a church.

Brianna Jimenez tells KSAT that 33-year-old Tony Dwayne Albert II went to the restroom in Las Mańanitas Mexican Restaurant in Sequin on Sunday, then came out and asked for the nearest Baptist church.

Jimenez says he was provided directions and as he left, she saw him gripping a weapon. She says an employee locked the door after he left and her mother called police, who arrested Albert after finding him with a loaded handgun, extra ammunition and a face shield.

Online records show he's jailed on weapons and drug complaints, but do not list an attorney for him.

Today is Law Enforcement Appreciation Day

They have a tough job. I always try to make it as easy as possible. A lot of Karma in this business. In the summer I keep a case of 20 oz water bottles on the passenger seat of the car. LEOs directing traffic get a free one. On rare occasions, I have been flagged through when it was maybe not my turn.

Other news:
CHICAGO For the third straight year, more officers died by suicide than in the line of duty, WGN 9 reports.

According to Blue H.E.L.P., a nonprofit run by active and retired police officers, at least 159 officers took their own lives in 2018, the same number of suicides tracked in 2017 and 19 more than in 2016.

Exposure to trauma, horrific accidents and shootings are leading to mental health struggles that often get untreated. The rate of PTSD and depression for police and firefighters is five times higher than the civilian population.

A report commissioned by the Ruderman Family Foundation showed that officers’ highest risk of death is by suicide with most deaths in California and Texas.

Critics believe the lack of resources for mental health adds to lives being lost. Mental health experts say the barrier that keeps officers from seeking help are the shame, fear of being off the job, and the stigma behind it.

Less than 10 percent of U.S. departments have suicide prevention programs.
Police can text “BLUE” or “TALK” to 741-741 to reach the Crisis Text Line.
For those who'd like to call, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline can be reached at 1-800-273-8255.

Body cam video shows the dramatic rescue of a 97-year-old woman from a house fire

PASCO COUNTY, FLA - A deputy rushes into a home after a report of a house fire, saving a 97-year-old woman’s life.

Theresa Mitchka called 911 early Thursday morning because she smelled smoke. She said her mother has a number of medical issues and cannot get out of bed without assistance and she knew the heaviest smoke was in her bedroom.

“I went into her room and it was total smoke and she was gagging,” Mitchka said.

She tried helping her mother, but couldn’t do it alone. She credits the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office for saving her mother.

“I was trying to get her out of bed and there he was,” Mitchka said.

Deputy Justin Ball said initially, he did not see any flames when he responded to the home along Carnation Way in Port Richey. Once he was inside the home he said he saw heavy smoke. Corporal Jeffrey Brown entered the home right after Deputy Ball. Deputy Ball requested that he get a fire extinguisher from one of the patrol units.

Deputy Ball picked up and carried Maria Logan out of the house.

“It felt really good to know the other side of being law enforcement. It’s not always about arresting bad guys and protecting the community. Sometimes we have to save them in other (ways),” Deputy Ball said.

At first, Deputy Ball had tried putting the fire out, using a pillow. Cpl. Brown used the fire extinguisher. The smoke was heavy so everyone got out of the house.

“I was relieved that momma’s getting out because I wasn’t going to leave her there,” Mitchka said.

According to Pasco County Fire Rescue, the cause of the fire appears to be a pillow on a nightlight.

Mitchka said she is thankful for what the deputy and corporal did for her family. As it was happening, she said she did not realize they were not firefighters.

“I am extremely grateful and I hope that the deputy that got the smoke inhalation (who) helped me with her is alright,” Mitchka said.

Deputy Ball was transported to Bayonet Point Medical Center. Deputy Ball said he is okay and does not have permanent damage.

“Ball did a great job this morning getting there (and) saving (her) life. Absolutely,” Cpl. Brown said.

Mitchka said her mother will stay at a nursing home for a few days because of the damage to their home.

I'll never understand why anyone would shoot an officer. Last night a man that served in our little town as an officer lost his daughter in Davis California. She was an officer for the City of Davis and a beautiful soul. I now can't imagine how her father is feeling. He served his whole career as an officer and now his daughter following in his footsteps was killed by a worthless piece of trash. Our little community is taking this lose to heart. The worthless sack of shit is also dead. They should drag his body thru the streets and then throw whats left of him into the Sacramento river for the fish to eat. Merced Corona was an outstanding officer and his daughter was true to his footsteps. I went to school with Merced he was an outstanding individual and a great family man. I ask that all of you please say a prayer for the Corona family as they have paid the ultimate sacrifice. May you rest in peace you beautiful angel. RIP Natalie you will be missed by many.

SRO removed after issuing principal parking ticket, union wants inquiry

SRO removed after issuing a principal a parking ticket, the union wants an inquiry.

The police union has asked the school district to investigate why their officer was removed from campus, Jan 14, 2019

By PoliceOne Staff

WARREN, Ohio — Police union members plan to attend an upcoming school district meeting to ask for an investigation into why a school resource officer was removed after issuing a ticket to a principal who had repeatedly parked in an area designated for handicapped parking.

SRO Adam Chinchic was escorted from Jefferson Elementary School campus last week shortly after issuing a ticket to K-2 Pod Principal Carrie Boyer, the Tribune Chronicle reports.

Chinchin has since been re-assigned to patrol duties for the city.

“We want an apology to our officer and want to know exactly what happened from the time the ticket was issued to when SRO Adam Chinchic was escorted off of the property,” said Warren patrolman Michael Stabile, co-director of the Ohio Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association.

Stabile told the Tribune that Boyer had been warned twice hat she was illegally parking in an area designated for handicapped persons. She was given a ticket after she parked in the area the third time.

Boyer had been parking her car in the space between handicapped parking spots, designated to be used to allow those using the spots to easily get in and out of their vehicles.

Chinchin told his union representatives that within 30 minutes of writing the ticket, two district employees told him they had been ordered to remove him from the school campus.

“Our officer did nothing wrong,” Stabile said. “He could have written the ticket the first time he noticed her parking in the handicapped space.”

Since Chinchin’s removal, SROs from other schools are covering Jefferson for several hours a day.

The issue is being addressed by the school’s administration and the city’s Safety Service Director Enzo Cantalamessa.

“Officer Chinchic wants to return to the schools,” Stabile said. “He enjoyed working with the kids.”

Man draws gun on cop at close range, is shot 3 times

The man drew a gun from his jacket and pointed it at the LEO, prompting the LEO to draw his gun and shoot the man three times.

Not on youtube or other yet. Just a local feed. The first part is a jumbled up body cam and almost worthless but the dash cam is a clear video of what happens. It is rerun several times and is a good example of keeping a clear head and acting fast when a gun is within arms reach.

Text on the page gives great detail.

Ohio officers save couple from burning home on first shift together

The officers saved an elderly couple from their burning home before firefighters arrived

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio — Two Ohio officers won’t forget their first shift together.

Middletown Police Officer Sheoki Reece, a 10-year veteran and certified Field Training Officer, was riding with rookie officer Austin Mooney on Sunday night when they were heard over the scanner about a fire in the 300 block of Harlan Street with two people possibly trapped.

Since they were patrolling a few blocks away, Reece and Mooney were first on the scene. Heavy smoke was rolling out of the front door, they said.

“You don’t even think,” Reece, 42, said when asked about her first reaction. “You just run in and then you realize, ‘This is real.’”

Reece said she nearly tripped over a 69-year-old woman who was lying on the living room. She appeared to be crawling away from a couch that was on fire, the officers said.

The woman, wearing a robe, was on fire and Reece patted out the flames, then dragged the woman out of the front door and onto the porch, she said.

Mooney, 26, in his fourth month as an officer. He went inside the residence and convinced the woman’s husband, who was looking for his cell phone and keys, that he needed to leave the house immediately. Mooney then helped carry the woman safely down the street where a neighbor provided blankets and a pillow. The officers wanted to get the couple down the street because there were oxygen tanks inside the residence, they said.

Seconds later, with the two officers, the couple and their dog safely outside, flames engulfed the house, shattering the windows. The fire “grew quickly,” Mooney said.

Seconds were the difference between the woman suffering moderate injuries or two fatalities, Reece said. “Can’t ask for better people,” said Middletown Police Chief Rodney Muterspaw.

Reece was asked if she and her partner ever considered waiting for the Middletown firefighters to arrive.

“There was no time,” she said. “When you’re first on the scene, you have to do what you have to do.”

The woman was transported to Atrium Medical Center with moderate injuries, according to a Middletown fire report. Her husband, who wasn’t injured, was driven to the hospital by police. The cause of the fire is listed as smoking on a couch and it caused $40,000 in damages to the property, including $10,000 to the contents, according to the report.

Mooney graduated from the Police Academy in August, then was hired by the Middletown Division of Police in November. He will be assigned to ride with a Field Training Officer for four to six months, then be given an examination by the officers. If he passes, as Reece predicted, he will ride by himself, then begin his one-year probation.

As Reece and Mooney discussed their first-day adventure, she told him with a smile: “I expect this tomorrow.”

This was at least the second time Reece has been credited with potentially saving someone’s life. On June 11, 2017, Reece, while off-duty, performed CPR on an 8-year-old boy who was under the water and couldn’t make it to the edge of the pool. She instructed others to call 911 and continued to give CPR until the boy was revived.

There were other kids in the pool, and they thought he was playing around. His brother saw that he was limp and got him out of the pool. The boy wasn’t breathing, and was blue in the face.

For her efforts, she was Employee of the Year by the City of Middletown.
