In January, Robert McCraney and a coconspirator robbed a local South West Omaha cabbie at gunpoint.
…It’s not as easy as you might think.
A recent story in the Omaha World Herald highlighted the recent decrease in clearance rates for Burglaries and Auto Thefts in Omaha.
Yesterday we discussed the challenges with maintaining a high clearance rate when so many other participants within the CJ system (other than cops and prosecutors) seem bound and determined to release these so called “non violent offenders” as soon as possible.
Another challenge to maintaining high clearance rates is Nebraska’s – and by extension Omaha’s – extremely restrictive laws and policies pertaining to property crime felons who flee from police in a vehicle.
It’s rare when we here at OmahaPOA.com report on so called “non-violent offenders”.
We prefer to focus our attention on violent offenders and gang members.
But today’s article in the Omaha World Herald has prompted us to direct our attention otherwise for a bit.
Police work is like sausage.
Most people love to chomp down on a tasty brat…
So earlier, on our FB page, we posted an image to represent the melee last night at the downtown Doubletree.
Some loyal readers wanted to see actual footage.
Ask and ye shall receive..
Alma Foster just doesn’t seem to get it…
In May of 2013, Felon Alma Foster was arrested for being a Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Felony Possession of a Stolen Firearm.
She was facing up to 70 years in Prison
Security cameras capture the sheer brutality of the violent criminal element that cops and innocent law abiding citizens must endure every day.
We will never know…
It’s “none of your business” according to state law makers.
Last month, Rashad Turner stood in front of Judge Gary Randall waiting to hear his fate after being convicted of Possession of a Defaced Firearm.
In December of 2012, court records indicate that Lester Kent committed a 2nd Degree Felony Assault against a victim.
Interesting report from an OPOA member working yesterday’s weather event:
While OPD officers were diligently responding to flash flooding calls and scrambling to numerous calls for citizen rescues yesterday….
One citizen – who lived just down the street from rising flood waters – opted to instead drive through a police barricade.
Anthony Burries would still be in prison today
Tina Hoult would still be alive today.
