A dash cam video of a “high risk stop” from Forney, TX has been making the rounds recently.
It shows a mother, her children and God-children being stopped by the local police on a dark stretch of highway in a Dallas suburb.
The officers – who were responding to a 911 call from an eye witness- had mistakenly thought the vehicle in which the family was driving was one which contained armed suspects who were brandishing a gun.
They were wrong.
And they admitted it.
Last month, Robert Secord stood in two court rooms.
One in Douglas County, the other in Sarpy after being convicted of Felony Shoplifting and Felony Flight to Avoid to Arrest.
Between the two Judges, Secord was sentenced to a combined total maximum of 7 years in prison.
Here it comes….
So yesterday you may recall our post entitled “There is NO constitutional right to resist lawful arrest”.
Some great discussion and questions were stimulated.
For example, one great question was…
What if the resistive person had been “..stopped for practicing their first amendment right?”
The US was a nation born of a quest for constitutional freedoms…not acquiescence to “rulers”.
The constitutional freedoms we enjoy today are the direct byproduct of the blood our forefathers shed to defeat tyrannical rule.
But in order to maintain a civil, free society there must be rules, boundaries, law and order and someone to actually apply it.
An eye opening news interview with two individuals who admit to being involved in the riot that looted and burned numerous businesses in Ferguson, MO.
It “was necessary”.
On Saturday, Police in Ferguson, Missouri – a suburb of St. Louis- were involved in a physical altercation with an 18 year old male citizen.
At the end of the incident, the citizen was dead.
Media reports indicate he was unarmed and an investigation into the facts surrounding the shooting has been seen launched.
Within hours, a peaceful demonstration assembled at the scene in which citizens exercised their God given first amendment right to express concern over the incident.
Hours later, a much different “demonstration” erupted…
So earlier today we introduced you to Troy Bruno , the Fort Calhoun thug who seems to enjoy traveling to Omaha to cause mayhem.
Bruno currently sits in prison after being sentenced to 1 year for Terroristic Threats.
His original charge was Robbery and he will be free in 3 months thanks to automatic good time.
Loyal readers reached out to suggest we look deeper into Mr. Bruno… and so we did.
In early 2014, Troy Bruno was arrested for a violent Robbery and facing up to 50 years in prison.
The charge was later reduced to Terroristic Threats.
In 2006, Noah Strimple was arrested for Felony Possession of Meth and sentenced to probation.
Within 2 years he messed that up by violating his probation for behavior such as associating with known criminals, imbibing alcohol and testing positive for meth.
For violating his probation, Strimple was sentenced to 1 years and 8 months to 3 years in prison. Thanks to automatic good time, he was released in a little over 1 year.
Strimple clearly didn’t learn his lesson.
In 2013, Bryan Jirkowsky was arrested for Felony Possession of Controlled Substance and Felony Theft.
Last January the Judge Randall was willing to take a good faith chance on Jirkowsky and allowed him to enroll in Drug Court.
Successful completion of Drug Court would not only have given him a chance at an addiction free life, but also avoidance of prison and a felony record.
It took Jirkowsky less than 1 month to screw that up.
Last month, Felon Enrico Romero stood in former prosecutor and current Judge, Kim Pankonin’s courtroom for sentencing.
Romero has been convicted of being a Felon in Possession of a Firearm and for Felony Possession of a Machine Gun / Short Shotgun / Short Rifle.
According to the Nebraska Supreme Court website, the following Douglas County District Court Judges are up for their retention vote in November.
We see a few names on this list who do a pretty good job, and a few who probably deserve your attention.
You can research Judges on our website www.OmahaPOA.com by simply placing their last name into the search bar.
This November…YOU BE THE JUDGE!
The national debt has soared past $16 Trillion…
Social Security is set to run dry in 2033…
…and our national politicians continue to squabble and essentially do nothing while the problems only grow bigger.
Meanwhile in Omaha…
We are actually fixing our challenges.
