Non-US citizens are being hired as cops

Cops & IllegalsIf you wish to hasten the true and irretrievable death of our sovereign nation, you continue to do this to our local communities.  If you don’t care and merely want to turn the United States into Mexico North — with its drug cartels and public shootings and beheadings (not unlike a death cult I can think of), keep to this path.


Police departments hiring immigrants as officers

by Alan Gomez

Law enforcement agencies struggling to fill their ranks or connect with their increasingly diverse populations are turning to immigrants to fill the gap.

Most agencies in the country require officers or deputies to be U.S. citizens, but some are allowing immigrants who are legally in the country to wear the badge. From Hawaii to Vermont, agencies are allowing green-card holders and legal immigrants with work permits to join their ranks.

In other words: illegal immigrants.  Not even full US citizens.  Green card holders.  Work permitters.

Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, said he has no problems with green-card holders becoming police officers because they’ve made a long-term commitment to the country and have undergone extensive background checks. But he worries about the security risks associated with allowing any immigrant with a work permit to become an officer, especially considering that the Obama administration has given hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants work permits.

“We’re handing over a gun and a badge to somebody whose background we don’t really know a lot about,” Krikorian said.

As a cop, there isn’t much new under the sun that I haven’t already seen and, as we all know, life tends to be cyclical because we fail to learn from our past.  I call that Historical Alzheimers.

We went through this problem in the early 90s, in terms of trying to find a sufficient number of qualified candidates to fill the cop ranks.  And that became the operative phrase: “qualified candidates.”  As a cop in the Sacramento Valley, working for a 2,000 + member department, I know that LAPD and LASO recruiters would drive north and attempt to poach recruits from our northern gene pool — strictly because they knew their southern gene pool was tainted with gangbangers and unqualified — ahem — scum, shall we say.

This kind of thinking roped LAPD into hiring, essentially, gangbangers.  Hence: Rampanrt.  Rampart was a failure of the LEO Liability Triumvirate:

1. Negligence in hiring;
2. Negligence in training, and
3. Negligence in retention

The same thing is beginning to occur all over again as LE agencies are in a bind for suitable candidates.

When I was hired, I took a test in our local huge community center which held over 300 seats.  The written test was administered in three shifts, meaning that over 900 persons took the written test that day.

From that compilation, for my department, I came out in Rank One, as Number One.  When I passed the academy that became my career ranking and seniority.  I am extremely proud to have come out in Rank One and Number One as an academy recruit.

When I was hired, the question was “have you done any drugs, do you have any large debts and what are they?”

Today, the question is: “you haven’t done any illegal drugs within the past month, have you?”

With marijuana laws breaking down, the question is soon to be “you haven’t just smoked a splib prior to walking into this room just now, have you?”

Because, as a law enforcement agency: you are what you hire.  You want stoners to enforce laws, hire stoners.  You want illegals for enforce laws, hire illegals.  But the Logical Extension becomes this: the community gets what it tolerates for LEO hiring.

Let me state the obvious: if you think that hiring “more blacks” or “more Mexicans” or “more crazed Albanian dwarves” will “solve” law enforcement problems in every community, you and others are sorely mistaken.  It won’t.

Again, let me state the obvious: in my department, the best recruits and hirees are military veterans.  They are young, squared-away, used to regimentation and sacrifice, and have a sense of duty few others possess.  They will be the future of my department, at least this decade.  And I have done and am doing my best to groom and shape them appropriately.

But let’s be clear.  Demography is prophecy.  If Mexicans and Muslims out-procreate the rest of the US population, that’s your US future: Mexicans and Muslims.

My, what an interesting culture clash that is going to be.



1. Illegal Immigration – The View From A Police Officer’s Car


Policing America: should the green shirts be exchanged for Brown Shirts?

Fascism-When-We-Do-ItI submit that is a question you need to ask.

First, watch this video, an excerpt from the John Stossel show “Policing America: Security vs Liberty” recently broadcasted on Fox News, July 26th, involving USBP checkpoints up to 100 miles inland from an American border:

I find this shameful and repulsive, personally and professionally.  As anyone in law enforcement (as I am) knows, there is the spirit or the law and the letter of the law.

A pastor had both of his vehicle windows broken and was Tazed from both sides when he refused to let USBP search his vehicle.  He is Caucasoid and spoke clear English.

The issue?  The federal law indicating “a reasonable distance from the border.”  Is 60 miles reasonable?  100 miles?  Yes, 100 miles.  As Stossel points out, that’s where most Americans live, when you consider our borders north and south, and our coastlines east and west.

Some persons are installing cameras in their cars to document these abrogations, God bless them.  This is pushback and they are patriotic for doing so.  Again, see the video above.

The SCOTUS said that travelers can be briefly detained for the purpose of conducting a limited inquiry into residence status, as per United States vs Martinez-Fuerte, 428 US 543 (1976).  Neither the vehicle nor its occupants can be searched, yet the video clearly shows that Americans are being told to submit to detentions, searches, and arrests resulting from non-cooperation when more than an ID check is demanded.

How does one conduct a brief check into residency status?  Speak to the individual stopped, see if they speak English, check for a driver’s license and/or other forms of identification.  Any prudent and reasonable LEO can tell you this readily.

What we see displayed above is what is known in law enforcement as “contempt of cop.”  As in: you have pissed me off because you have dared to challenge my authority, and I am now making it personal.

John Stossel says “big government creates problems,” and that is certainly the case here, involving the Fourth Amendment.  “It’s like living in occupied territory,” some lawful residents of the United States of America are saying.

More Americans, as Stossel says, are pushing back.  As I submit they should, particularly if they possess video evidence of their incidents.  Further, as an affected citizen in an incident similar to those above, I would be suing the federal agencies involved and then the individuals themselves because, as the agents themselves made it personal, perhaps they should take a helping of “personal” in return.

Let there be no mistake: I have been in law enforcement for 41 years.  I have worked in a LE capacity for the federal government and for local agencies, where I have worked now for 35 years.  I was a Field Training Officer (FTO) in Patrol and have been in training the bulk of my LE career.  I taught my trainees to respect the foundational documents and in fact they had not only to conform to my agency training regimen, but my personal training regimen as well, which included knowledge about the Bill of Rights and its applicable amendments.

I emphasized that arrests and detentions should be built but upon solid probable cause and reasonable suspicion, and that we do not bluff.  If the law is not on our side, then we don’t make a potential bad situation worse.  We know, I would literally say (and wrote in my own adjunct training manual that I would hand out to my charges), when to back down.

Let me submit this for your consideration: if the USBP were literally “striking it rich” from vehicle blockades many miles within the United States proper, they and the Obama Administration would be crowing about it from the tallest of spires, the mightiest hilltops, far and wide, proving the efficacy of these policies.  Not only that, the American Media Maggots, sycophants that they are, would plaster these statistics over TV screens and newspapers for days and days.

Except they aren’t.  Which tells me one very salient thing: the stats are not bearing out the efficacy of this policy.  Trust me, if these interior check points were literal gold mines of success and productivity you would know.

And as far as Representative Peter King (R) is concerned, he is wrong.  Open your eyes.  All you have to do, sir, is watch this video.

Big Brother is indeed watching.  But in this case, watching the wrong Americans — whilst purposely allowing illegal invaders easy passage through our southern border.

Big-Brother-BWThis makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to me.

This is not the America I remember from even, say, 30 years ago.

I still adhere to the age-old axiom and standard I was held to when I worked Detectives, in Theft, Child Abuse, Warrants, Robbery and Homicide: see below.

Come Back With a WarrantThat is how it is done in a free United States of America where the police respect the foundational documents, the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Should the USBP exchange their green shirts for Brown Shirts?
