Stumbling across another past fight / assault caught on tape in Omaha gives us an opportunity to editorialize a bit…

Reminder!

The main point of having a *cell phone* is to actually have a means of *communicating* with people…not simply to have a video camera.

The Juvenile Justice System. From the perspective of a street cop.

04/03/14
image

By:

An anonymous Patrol Officer

___________

The young offender in question just turned 16 earlier this year.

He began his criminal career in 2008, with an assault. He was given diversion.

He somehow managed to avoid arrests until 2012 when he was charged with yet another assault.

Two weeks after the assault arrest, he was arrested yet again for unlawful occupancy (being a passenger in a stolen car) and was placed on juvenile probation.

The Juvenile Probation order requires him to attend school.

Now begins the young offender’s “break out year” of 2013.

..but is limited by automatic “good time” laws that Lincoln REFUSES to reform.

In July of last year, repeat Felon Bud Christensen attempted to sexually assault a woman while holding her against her will, all the while allegedly using a weapon.

In February, Christensen pled guilty, apparently in exchange for the weapon charge being dropped.

The two remaining charges – Attempted 2nd Degree Sexual Assault and 1st Degree False Imprisonment – each only carry a maximum of 5 years for each conviction.

Being in a stolen ride was the least of Ellerbruch’s concerns.Ellerbruch also had multiple felony warrants for his arrest, one of which was for violating his parole.

As Ellerbruch attempted to flee, he slammed the stolen car into an innocent motorist, seriously injuring her.

So in our last post about the Gov’s veto of pay raises for Probation Officers, loyal reader Bob Peabody responded:

“Huge mistake by the governor! Why is it that we can’t get our elected officials to focus on real issues rather than on fountains and mountain lions.”

Governor Vetoes Pay Raises for Underpaid Nebraska Probation Officers.

03/30/14

Will this cut be more lucrative for us, the taxpayers?

Or for the criminals?

Governor Heineman has uncapped his red veto pen in the waning days of the current legislative session.

Some of the vetoes, like cutting money to build decorative fountains in the state capital, strike us as responsible.

That said, in our view, cutting the money allocated for much needed pay raises for Nebraska Probation Officers was not only a mistake, it was short sighted and bad public policy.
