02/19/14

Imagine a world where Omaha tax payers could increase their presence of uniformed Omaha police officers……

…..especially in high crime and high call load area…

…and not have to pay a dime for it.

More uniformed cops to prevent robberies.

More uniformed officers to prevent shootings.

More uniformed officers to prevent murders.

At no cost to the taxpayers.

Well…believe it or not..that world does exists.

Right here in Omaha.

02/14/14

So we stumbled across this story from WOWT.

A male robbery inmate and female violent kidnapping inmate decided to simply traipse away from prison and luckily are soon caught

The story was reported with a slight “Valentines day” humorous bend.

Things quickly become a lot less funny when you look at offender Darrell Howard’s criminal background.

“Good Time” hearing a terrifying glimpse into state’s failure

02/13/14
image

Yesterday’s hearing on automatic “good time” early release confirmed a few things that the Omaha POA has been advocating for a long time:

1) Our prison system is a catastrophically overloaded, under-funded mess.

2) The state of Nebraska has done an abysmal job of providing rehabilitation options, even for inmates who truly want to try to change.

3) When it comes to crime, “Lincoln” just doesn’t get it. They are shockingly out of touch. Even more so than we originally thought.

Another citizen robbed by an armed, juvenile criminal!

On Saturday in broad daylight, a 44 year old Omaha woman – guilty of nothing more than wanting to buy groceries for her family – became the latest victim of an armed, youthful criminal.

We might add, the very same type of violent youthful criminals that Senator Bob Krist wants to award an automatic “Golden Ticket” to the warm embrace of Juvenile Court as opposed to the possibility of Adult Felony Court.

Platte Institute has the facts wrong.

02/06/14
image

This week, the Nebraska based Platte Institute released a report detailing their recommendations on the debate over Nebraska prison reform.

The public and our elected officials deserve organizations that can provide them with facts so that we can solve challenges such as violent crime, gangs and recidivism.

Organizations – such as the Platte Institute – are operating on tax free dollars and therefore have a moral obligation to get their facts right.

Earlier today, we told you about the Automatic “Golden Ticket” that some Senators want to give young criminals and gang members.

“Commit a serious felony? Go straight to Juvenile Court!”

During yesterday’s Douglas County Board Meeting, there was talk about a possible “compromise” on the bill.

Under possible deal, only Class IIIA and Class IV Felonies would get an automatic “Golden Ticket”.
