Officer kills man who beats him

Screen Shot 2014-03-05 at 12.33.28 PM

Recently released video of fatal “officer involved shooting” is a stark reminder of the facts that:

  • Police work is rarely – if ever – pretty to watch. (listen to the comments in the background)
  • Police officers who hesitate from escalating to adequate force levels early can actually create a more dangerous situation for themselves, the public AND the suspect.  Resistive suspects MUST be brought under control as soon as possible.
  • Suspects can not expect to get into a “street fight” with an officer without risking a fatal conclusion.  An unconscious officers will always result in an available firearm for the suspect.  Officers will not let that happen.

Are we being Prison Reform “Punked”?

02/24/14

There was a very interesting editorial in the Omaha World Herald today pertaining to prison reform.

We highly recommend you read it.

Long story short, the editorial lauds the state of Nebraska’s leaders willingness to listen to an independent outside organization – the Council of State Governments – with regard to best practices for prison reform.

We agree…..

…….so long as this organization is actually *allowed* to compare all of Nebraska’s prison policies to other peer states.

Vincent Hicks…”poster child” of “child court” failure.

02/23/14

Gang member Vincent Hicks currently stands accused of the murder of beautiful 5 year old Peyton Benson.

On the surface, it appeared that Hicks was virtually the only offender involved in this senseless murder who was not a “convicted felon”.

But OmahaPOA.com has looked a little deeper by stumbling across and purchasing unsealed juvenile court records and discovered a disturbing pattern that will give law abiding citizens even greater concern with Senator Bob Krist’s attempt to give juvenile offenders a “golden ticket” to Juvenile Court.

Case in point…
