Decay In Law Enforcement 24         From 11-30-18 And Continuing  ©2018-19 All Rights Reserved

2-15-19

Seatbelts on.  CNN reports:

"Abigail Arias is a little girl who had a big dream: to become a police officer. And on Thursday, that dream came true when she was officially sworn in as an honorary officer in Freeport, Texas. The 6-year-old has Wilms tumor, a type of kidney cancer in children. "The chemo and radiation hasn't worked and basically the family is now leaving it in God's hands and praying for a miracle," Freeport Police Chief Raymond Garivey Jr. told CNN. "They basically said it's time to enjoy some life," her mother, Ilene Arias, told CNN affiliate KTRK. "Extremely tough. We cried for a few weeks."

The Chief and Department rose to the occasion:

"Garivey met Abigail back in December at the police department's "Pancakes with Santa" event. During the meeting, the girl expressed her desire to become a police officer when she grows up. "Her terrific smile and will to keep fighting 'the bad guys' inside of her -- I wanted to make her dream come true," Garivey said. "You have to meet her to really understand what a great and inspiring young lady she is."

Indeed.

The Chief and Department were not the only ones to rise to the occasion:

"So the police chief immediately put things in motion to fulfill her dream. He reached out to a company called Cop Stop to get a custom Freeport uniform specially designed for Abigail. Cop Stop's owner, Rick Fernandez, donated the uniform to her, along with the duty rig and gun belt."

... No greater love:

"Abigail was sworn in surrounded by her family and police officers from around the state. "She is no doubt God-sent," Garivey said. "Her story brought peace officers from all over today into one room and it was a magical moment for all who were in attendance."

The following is a much tougher in-depth account.  Truly rough stuff.  Seatbelts on.  CBS News reports:

"A 6-year-old Texas girl with an incurable cancer said she had dreamed of becoming a police officer, so the Freeport Police Department decided to make her an honorary officer for the day – and the chief of police broke down while swearing her in."

Had to be one of the toughest things he's ever had to do.

"Abigal Arias has a stage-four Wilms' tumor wrapped around her aorta. She went into remission for five months, but then the cancer spread to her lungs. Abigail's doctors don't know of any treatment or chemotherapy that is able to cure her, CBS affiliate KHOU-TV reports. Despite having an incurable cancer, Abigail has not given up her fighting spirit."

Imagine what her parents are going through:

"That just devastated us," her father, Rueben Arias, said. Abigail's mom, Eileen, said the family's "greatest struggle is saying no to fear." "We're strong in our faith," her dad said. "We believe in God. The doctors can say what they say medically, but we know that God is the one that has her destiny in his hands."

Consider the creativity, imagination, determination of this truly exceptional kid:

"Abigail thought up a good way to combat what she calls "the bad guys" in her body that are making her sick. She wanted to fight them by becoming a police officer. The 6-year-old first met Chief of Police Ray Garivey in December and told him about her dream of becoming a cop. "I said, 'We're going to make that happen,'" Garivey said. The department invited Abigail to be sworn in as an honorary officer Thursday, under one condition: Garivey made Abigail make a promise in her oath. "I now and forever promise to keep fighting the bad guys until all my cancer's gone," she said. The chief couldn't hold back his tears while swearing in the terminally ill girl. He was overcome with emotion as Abigail received her badge, which she wore on her tiny police uniform.

"Abigail got to sit in a police car and eat an officer's treat – a doughnut. She said becoming an honorary officer made her feel "neat" inside. "I felt excitement and all love," she said. After her day as an officer ended, Abigail swore she would keep her promise for Garivey. "I want to help the bad guys go away," she said. "I want to help this cancer go away in five seconds."

... Hey, Sheriff?  Is it true Llano County Attorney Becky Lange has advised you to stay out of the "Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764" fiasco?  That right, Bill?  Isn't that obstruction of justice?  Also true your deputies have advised the Bolens to accept the status quo and not force the no-trespassing issue with Greene?  If so, isn't that also obstruction and official oppression?  When will you do your job, Bill?  As an elected official, you answer to the public, forget?  -- No honor?  ... No honor at all?  If the foregoing allegations are indeed true, didn't you swear an oath to uphold the law and Constitution?  Why aren't you doing so?  No guts?

Your deputy has been accused of abusing authority.  What action have you taken other than ignore the complaint?  Why aren't both Rodriguez and the County Attorney under criminal investigation?  The County Attorney appears to be obstructing justice, accepting the word of Greene in lieu of two surveyor companies who strongly assert otherwise.  Both the County Attorney and District Attorney have ignored complaints.  Par for the course in Llano County, isn't it?  Failed to do their jobs.  No surprise there, right, Bill?  Both receiving 'special consideration' up to and/or including a bribe from Greene?  Regardless, clearly, no justice in Nazi Llano County.  Bottom line?  Desperate need for an outside criminal investigation.  Conveniently, forget?  This County is ruled by men, certainly not rule of law and the United States Constitution.

Precisely, why there is desperate need for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, and prosecute criminal law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose only mandate would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.  Until that happens, the criminal bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole County will continue to do as they please.

Some salient quotes occurring later on in this edition vis a vis unfinished business County officials continue to ignore:

... "Not good enough.  Nowhere near.  Short of an unwanted dreaded second American revolution, only one way for these atrocities to end.  Time for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, prosecute corrupt, abusive, criminal officers, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose sole function would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.

Local  and state authorities are egregiously incapable of handling these cases. Tend to protect their own.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Goes with the territory, doesn't it, Bill?  Precisely, why there is no faith or trust in your criminal jackbooted bastards.  Local authorities here in Nazi Llano County have their heads figuratively, securely lodged so far up their clueless ass their eyeballs are turning inside out.  Protect and coddle your clueless, out of control officers.  Imagine that.

Unadulterated, blatant ongoing horse shit.  ... Right, Bill?  F--k these jackbooted bastards.  Aren't worth a crap.  Continually abrogate their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Includes not only deputies, but the brass as well.  No principles.  No honor.  Lying, conniving, abusive, murderous jackbooted thieving thugs.  The American Civil Liberties Union needs to step up and represent the victims of abusive law enforcement.

To say nothing of innocent civilians all across our formerly great country who are victimized by abusive police.  Need far better representation than a public defender.  Forget?  It's how the bastards in government line government coffers.  All too often, looting the innocent.  Those on the bottom of the food chain.  ... Right, Sheriff?

No justice.  The American Way.  Nazi America.  When is this shit finally going to end?  All of it.  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty seven weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.

Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.  Who the hell are they?

When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff? Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up.  Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?

Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for? Ferociously pointedly, why are the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

Equally to the point, why are your jackbooted pieces of human excrement refusing to enforce Berardi's property rights?  Your goons have failed to take action against Theresa Ahrens when she tore down a no trespassing sign and barrier on Berardi's property.  Have you, your goons, and/or Madam County Attorney been bribed by Johnny Greene?

Why is Theresa Ahrens allowed by your goons to dictate what vehicles can and cannot be parked on Berardi's property?  Ahrens claims she has proof the property belongs to her where the vehicle was parked.  Has failed to produce it.  Surveyors say otherwise.  Back up Berardi.  Yet, your jackbooted bastards refuse to enforce Berardi's property rights.  Why?  Somebody lining somebody's pockets, Sheriff?

Ms. Ahrens micro-mini portable 'house' is parked on an unused unmarked Llano County road.  Imagine that.  Madam County Attorney well-aware.  Has done nothing.  Shit squat.  Egregiously ignored her oath of office.  Someone bribing you, Becky?  Lining your pockets, Counselor?  Paying you not to sell the unused unmarked County road to Berardi?  Doesn't the County want and need the sale money, to say nothing of the resultant tax income?

No question, County and State agencies remain determinedly, concertedly, achingly incapable of criminal investigation of their own.  Precisely, why a new federal agency desperately needs to be created whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, prosecute corrupt, abusive, criminal officers, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose sole function would be to adjudicate only such cases.  Total independence.  Certainly, go a long, long way to cleaning up this cess pool County.  Rein in the outrageously corrupt, abusive, achingly inept, self-serving assholes who run and own this hell hole.

Sheriff, you falsely claim the Kingsland County Commissioner has the authority to resolve this ongoing property rights issue.  Clearly, doesn't.  You, Madam County Attorney, and "Sonny Boy" are certainly an egregious impediment, continue to determinedly stonewall.  Someone's pockets are being lined.  Again, where's financial compensation for the damage Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 is directly responsible for to the Pace Arrow?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for this damage, to say nothing of infringement of Berardi's property rights?  -- Just getting started, Sheriff.  Far more to come.

-- You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?"

... Small sampling of what's to come in this edition.  Read on.

Re:  Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764

Counselor:

The enclosed emails were sent to the Llano County Attorney and Sheriff, respectively, vis a vis the above matter.  Remain unanswered.  The County Attorney appears to be protecting and defending the deputy at behest of Kingsland property owner Johnny Greene.  May have received some consideration from Greene up to and including a bribe.  Are the County Attorney, Greene, and the Deputy under criminal investigation?  If not, why not?

Re:  Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764

Counselor:

As you're well aware, we have an outrageously corrupt, abusive, achingly inept Llano County Sheriff's Office here in Nazi Llano County.  Worse, you and your office aid and abet these SS jackbooted bastards in black.  The issue at the moment is the same it's been the last six months.

How is it two surveyor companies, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, even the goddamned Sheriff himself now states Kingsland resident James Berardi owns the lots in contention all these months?

Yet, you ludicrously assert that's not the County's legal position.  It's not?  Why not?  You claim you're not a real estate expert.  Rather than accept the advice of two surveyor companies, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, and even the Sheriff himself, you've inexplicably chosen to follow the advice of property owner Johnny Greene, -- who conveniently happens to be reportedly in the oil industry.

Question to be asked.  Could you have received any 'consideration' in return, -- up to and including a bribe?  Only way to know for sure is for the District Attorney to conduct a criminal investigation.  Apparently, there has been none.  If not, why not?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to this Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.

Our achingly useless, worthless, gutless Sheriff has ignored an email vis a vis the damage this jackbooted thug is responsible for.  Interestingly, his fellow officers believe him to be an idiot.  Yet, the Sheriff continued to defend this piece of human excrement until he realized  this entire fiasco would not be swept under the carpet.

Rodriguez is indeed an idiot.  Would you believe this piece of crap ordered the motor home to be moved on to an unmarked unused Llano County road? That motor home has indeed been moved back to where it was parked before Rodriguez forced it to be moved.  Why hasn't the County paid for the cost of moving it back?  To say nothing of the damage.

Equally pointedly, why is it the County has allowed Theresa Ahrens to park and live in her tiny cottage on that very same road?  Why hasn't she been evicted by the County?  Why was she assessed taxes on an adjacent improvement she doesn't own?

Why is it, Counselor, Johnny Greene is paying for the attorney retained by Ms. Ahrens?  Is Greene attempting to make this all go away by bribery?  Greene has also informed Berardi he is going to sue.  For what?  Has Greene lost his mind?

What about Wells who installed a $4500 septic system on a lot turns out he does not own as a result of Greene, an outrageously inept County, to say nothing of the Llano County Attorney who remains equally determinedly clueless?

How about Bolen who hasn't a pot to piss in, but was nonetheless f--ked over by Greene to say nothing of an egregiously inept County, to say nothing of you and your goddamned equally incompetent office?

None of this is going away, Counselor, -- any time soon.  Will not be swept under the carpet as all the other crap going on in this hell hole County.  Not a chance.  Expect a full expose in this publication whether or not this outrageous fiasco finally gets resolved.  Including full public exposure of both the Sheriff and his jackbooted thug.

Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty seven weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.  Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.

Who are they, Sheriff?  Their past history?  An ongoing investigation remains a lame bullshit excuse.  How can you and your goons be trusted when you refuse to disclose information?  One hundred forty seven weeks.  Especially, your egregious failure to disclose the identity of the officers who pulled the trigger.  To cover your sorry ass, Sheriff?  Those of your thugs?  The people have a right to know what happened, how it went down.  You don't understand that, Sheriff?  Sadly, clearly, you answer to no one.  Including taxpayers.  Especially, taxpayers.

Until you and your goons come clean, doubt will remain this was indeed a good shoot.  The longer you drag your feet, the greater the doubt.  Think not?  Wake up.  Your credibility has tanked.  Isn't getting any better as this bullshit continues unabated.  One hundred forty seven weeks.   Still no identification of the officers involved  ... Can't get your stories straight?  In line?  Discrepancy between LCSO and DPS? Wake up, Sheriff.  The public no longer buys the bullshit.  No longer trusts you.  On this and many, many other issues.  You have no credibility.  Absolutely, none.

Readers, this is but one of about four other highly questionable killings by law enforcement in Llano County in the last decade or so.  There was one within the City of Llano, another in a field near Fuzzy's Corner, Buchanan Dam, yet another in Point Tella, Buchanan Dam, still another in Tow.  If there are any others I may have neglected to mention, kindly email.

It's time the public be fully informed.  -- Know what we're dealing with here and how 'law' 'enforcement' operates in this hell hole County.  If these jackbooted bastards are not reined in, the life lost could be yours courtesy of a law enforcement system that is no longer accountable to anyone.  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

The Sheriff seems to have no clue the people who pay him and his goons are entitled to know whom is killing whom and why.  This shit always seems to be swept under the carpet.  Ignored.  The attitude of these jackbooted sons of bitches is trust us.  They can't be.  They've lied too many times.  Refuse to be accountable to anyone.  We live in a goddamned fascist police-state where law enforcement does as it pleases. Usually, with impunity.  That has to change.

The Texas Rangers have become rubber stamp to atrocities committed by law enforcement.  This also has to change.  No one is holding law enforcement accountable any longer.  No one.  No one in state or federal government. This is precisely why Ferguson triggered such an uproar.  There was no justice there.  None here.  None anywhere.  Officers are abusive, corrupt, inept.

Falsely ticket and arrest the innocent to line County coffers.  Court fees charged continue to be horrendous.  -- Aren't taxpayers already looted to pay these costs?  Aren't you boys not only double f--king those falsely accused, but taxpayers also hellaciously looted to pay the very same costs?   Yet, the criminal bastards in power in Llano continue to pile on the fees. This is nothing more than goddamned bullshit.  This money finds its way into the pockets of the corrupt, abusive bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole.

Would you believe the last time the Sheriff's Office happened to be 'audited' during the Garrett regime, reportedly, auditors couldn't figure out what went where and why? Yet, surprise, surprise.  Nothing was done.  There has to be transparency.  There is none.  Why would these thieving bastards want any?  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  How else could they so easily steal and loot with virtual impunity?  Worse, this reinforces jackbooted power in this goddamned, godforsaken hell hole County.

The public has a right to know the histories of the Sheriff's goons.  Clearly, the Sheriff doesn't think so.  That is, where they came from.  Why they left where they were.  What is happening here is the Sheriff is using 'personnel matters' as a convenient excuse to deny the public access to the history of outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept officers who are no more than criminals themselves.

He's protecting his outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards.  Worse, the standards imposed by sheriff's offices statewide with the exception of metropolitan counties are well below those of DPS and city police departments.  Why?  So the corruption, abuse, ineptness, and outright stealing can continue unabated?  This has to change.  ... Can't have that, can we?  Sheriff?  TL?

The public should understand Llano County authorities have it all sewn up.  Did you know the Texas Attorney General does not have the authority to investigate and prosecute County authorities on his own?  The District Attorney has to call for an investigation by the Texas Rangers.  Then, the State can prosecute if it so chooses.

Consequently?  Guess what?  Nothing will happen.  Nothing ever does.  The goddamned corruption continues unabated until you, the public, pressure authorities.  Precisely, why we all enjoy the 'best' government money can buy. Literally.  Without question, the corrupt, abusive, inept sons of bitches are all bought and paid for.  Firmly clamped to the taxpayer tit.  Dependent on money looted from innocent citizens caught in their web.  Phony fines and court costs cleverly designed to f--k the innocent and enrich the pieces of shit who falsely believe they run and own Llano County. Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

Interestingly, the former Sheriff and District Attorney were reportedly forced to retire after an outrageous scandal involving a drunk driving police officer from out of town.  Including special treatment of the drunken son of a bitch that no other citizen caught doing the same would have been afforded.  An honest, honorable Llano County Deputy suffered the consequences. Forget?  Great officers do not last in this hell hole County. ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

With all ongoing abuse in this goddamned County, one thing remains for damned sure.  We're just getting started, Sheriff.  You will continue to be exposed for whom and what you and your corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards have become, truly are, not what you phonies purport to be, that is, how you continue to f--k over a public you've falsely sworn to protect and defend.  -- Exposure, the only way short of an unwanted dreaded revolution to force desperately needed change in a goddamned fascist police-state. The Fourth Reich.

Have your jackbooted thugs been tested for steroids, Sheriff?  If you've nothing to hide, Bill, release the results of all drug testing.  'Personnel matters?'  Bullshit.  Looted taxpayers have the right to know.  They're footing the bill for all this goddamned corruption, abuse, ineptness. When will you and the boys end the shakedowns?  Looting of the innocent to line County coffers?  No honor at all?

Where are your swastika armbands, you fascist son of a bitch?  You and your thugs remain out of uniform.  Once again, Sheriff, and ad nauseum, did you and/or your goons pressure Schilling to exit the race?  Did you steal the election? If so, an aggressively stupid, achingly gutless public gets what it truly deserves.  One of the most corrupt, abusive, inept 'law' 'enforcement' agencies in our formerly great country.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

In follow up to the last edition, ABC News reports:

"The mayor of Hoover, Alabama, said Wednesday that the city will support and defend a police officer who killed a legally-armed African-American man in a shopping mall in November, a shooting that the state attorney general ruled was justified."

Kangaroo, nazi justice.  Legalized murder by a criminal jackbooted bastard in blue.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Mayor Frank Brocato said during a news conference that officials at the Hoover Police Department are "relieved" that state Attorney General Steve Marshall cleared the officer who shot 21-year-old Emantic "EJ" Bradford Jr. during a chaotic scene at the Riverchase Galleria Mall on Thanksgiving night."

Bet they are.  A rubber stamp.  Have again received carte blanche to murder on the job.  Nazi justice.  In a de facto fascist police-state, -- quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"We will defend our city and we will defend our police officer," Brocato said."

You're defending a jackbooted murderer, Mr. Mayor.  Obstructing justice.

"The name of the officer who shot Bradford has not been made public and Brocato said there are no plans to identify him."

Galling.  Jackbooted nazi.  The public has the right to know who is killing whom.

"The officer has some rights as well," Brocato said."

You and the Attorney General have extended this criminal jackbooted bastard special rights not enjoyed by the public, rights this piece of shit denied the man he murdered, gutlessly shooting him in the back repeatedly.

"Just as any private citizen that is investigated and found not to have committed a crime, their name is not released. And that's the same procedure we'll follow with this officer."

Goddamned bullshit.  The murderer is an officer who works for the public.  Paid by taxpayers.  The public has the right to know his identity.  How else can it protect itself when it doesn't know who the hell he is?  Think this shit can't, won't happen again?  This piece of crap is a walking timebomb.  Will likely strike again.  What's his background?  Why hasn't that been released?

"He said the officer "will go through the process of returning to work," pending a police department internal investigation."

Means shit squat.  Fox guarding the chicken coop.

"They had to wait for the attorney general's report to be able to take information that was gathered there to help them complete their investigation," Brocato said of the internal police department probe."

Whitewash.  Galling double standard.

"During a news conference Tuesday, Bradford's mother, April Pipkins, voiced outrage over Marshall's decision and sent a message to the officer who killed her son, saying, EJ Bradford "did not deserve what you did to him." "You shoot my first born son three times, three kill shots and you call this justice. How dare you. If this happened to your child, would you still call it justice? Because I don't see any justice in this,” Pipkins said."

It's nazism.  Deliberate, determined, concerted, false exoneration of a criminal jackbooted bastard in blue who murdered an innocent citizen.  ... Right, Sheriff?

NPR reports:

"Outraged by the report's findings, activists moved their efforts Wednesday to the state capitol in Montgomery. Joining them were members of Bradford's family, who say they plan to file a civil suit against the officer who shot Bradford, and against the city of Hoover. After the protest, the father of the victim, Emantic Bradford Sr., spoke openly about his pain. "My son is gone," he said. "Do you understand the feeling that I have every night when I lay down at night. And the memories I have of my child when he was young and when he got older. You don't feel my pain." Bradford's family vows to hold future protests at Marshall's home and office."

The Attorney General certainly needs to be continually reminded he protected and coddled a criminal jackbooted bastard in blue.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Activists have been protesting the killing for two months throughout the city of Hoover. They have marched outside the home of the mayor, the mall where Bradford was killed, and blocked busy roads and interstates. The protesters continue to ask that the entire video of the shooting be released, along with the identity of the officer who shot him."

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

The following is an atrocity.  One of the worst in law enforcement.  CBS News reports:

"The family of a 27-year-old woman who died after her physical and mental health declined during 17 days in a western New York jail has sued 73 Erie County sheriff's employees, claiming they all failed to get her medical help that a medical review board said could have saved her life."

A lawsuit is absolutely required.  Insufficient, however.  Needs to be criminal prosecution.

"India Cummings died at the Erie County Medical Center Feb. 21, 2016, after suffering a pulmonary embolism resulting from renal failure, rhabdomyolysis (a breakdown of muscle tissue), dehydration and an untreated broken arm, according to a June report issued by the New York State Commission of Correction. The commission's medical review board, which investigates in-custody deaths, in June 2018 found the medical and mental health care Cummings received while incarcerated at the Erie County Holding Center was "so grossly incompetent and inadequate as to shock the conscience."

All the more reason for criminal prosecution.

"The New York attorney general opened an investigation into the death last year. And Cummings' family, which had already filed a lawsuit against the Erie County Sheriff and others, last week filed an additional lawsuit against the deputies after piecing together a timeline of Cummings' last days through jail records, family lawyer Matthew Albert told CBS News. "We came to the conclusion there were 70-plus deputies, all of whom had sufficient time to see a severely ill individual in custody couldn't care for herself, and none of whom cared for her in any manner," Albert said."

Man's inhumanity to his fellow man.

"The medical review board found that Cummings suffered the broken arm during her Feb. 1, 2016, arrest by the Lackawanna Police Department and ruled that Cummings would have survived with the appropriate care, supervision and intervention. The board said her death should be ruled a homicide by medical neglect, disagreeing with the Erie County Medical Examiner in its ruling that the cause and manner of Cummings' death were both undetermined."

Question.  Did the jackbooted bastards deliberately break it for her?

"According to the Buffalo News, the county pathologist ruled the death to be complications from a broken arm including rhabdomyolysis, but couldn't determine the cause or manner because it wasn't clear whether her arm was broken accidentally or by officers."

Jesus Christ.  Where the f--k is body camera and other video?  Where?

"Albert told CBS News that Cummings' treatment before her death appears to be "par for the course" for the Erie County Holding Center, which has faced criticism over medical and mental health care for inmates. The Appeal reports that Cummings was among 24 people who died in the jail during the tenure of sheriff Timothy Howard, who took the office in 2005."

Jesus Christ.  How does this shit go on and on and nobody does anything about it?  No question, one of the ways a civilization is judged is by the way it treats its prisoners.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"A 2018 report by the Commission of Correction found the Erie County Holding Center to be among the "most problematic local correctional facilities in the state." It noted "numerous serious incidents" including inmate assaults, escapes and deaths, and said the commission has launched enforcement actions against the Erie County sheriff for failure to correct violations, including not reporting attempted inmate suicides."

What took so long?  Where the f--k was the Attorney General while all this shit was going on? Where?

"The commission also cited a 2012 suicide by an inmate it found had not been properly referred for mental health treatment, and an inmate who died of a perforated ulcer in 2014 after it found staffers didn't provide adequate medical care."

Lawsuits while absolutely necessary, remain achingly insufficient.  Until there is criminal accountability, nothing changes.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Cummings' mother, Tawana Wyatt, said her daughter suffered under the watch of the deputies at the holding center, who should have had her safety in mind. "I just pray that they be brought to justice," Wyatt told told CBS affiliate WIVB."

Family members need to monitor treatment of loved ones imprisoned.  Need to file complaints of improper treatment right up to and including the state attorney general.  Should that not work, contact the FBI and Justice Department.  Don't remain silent.  Complain to anyone who will listen.

"Police responded to Cummings' Lackawanna home for a mental health emergency Feb. 1, 2016, and after they arrived she carjacked a vehicle, led police on a chase and crashed into several cars, according to the board's report. She was combative during her arrest, and police forced her out of the car and onto the ground. Based on the nature of the call and Cummings' erratic behavior, the report found she should have been evaluated at a hospital before being jailed, but wasn't. Cummings had no known medical or mental health issues or a criminal history, the report found."

Fascinating, isn't it?  No one gave a shit.  Couldn't care less.

"In the 17 days she was incarcerated in the Erie County Holding Center, she was refusing meals and medications and displaying bizarre behavior including smearing wet cereal and defecating on her cell floor, lying in her cell naked and throwing trash around, the report said. The medical review board's report said her fractured arm went untreated and jail staff didn't report a critical observation that she hadn't urinated in 40 hours and was hyperventilating, a sign of renal failure. She was hospitalized Feb. 17 after suffering a cardiac arrest at the jail, according to the report, and died several days later."

How did this shit happen in 2016?  The focus on the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue is currently the most intense ever.  The lack of responsiveness to this inmate's medical and mental issues is well beyond stunning.  It's criminal.

"The lawsuit says Cummings' worsening physical and mental condition constituted a medical emergency, and it outlines numerous instances in which it says jail staff should have transported her to the hospital, but didn't. It says Cummings had an urgent referral for mental health treatment on Feb. 3 because of the acute change in her behavior and a physical altercation with deputies, but despite the referral, she was transferred to a non-medical disciplinary housing unit. On Feb. 5, the lawsuit says, Cummings was seen to be "delusional, minimally engaged, disorganized and responding to internal stimuli" and was transferred to a unit for inmates with known medical conditions, but still didn't receive treatment."

Again, how the f--k does this happen?  While our formerly great country has more than its share of problems, are we now no more than a goddamned banana republic?

"She was scheduled to be transferred on Feb. 8 to the Erie County Medical Center for an evaluation of her severely fractured left arm, but the lawsuit says a deputy never took her there because Cummings refused transportation. The deputy should have known Cummings' wasn't of sound mind and couldn't make medical decisions for herself, the lawsuit claims."

If true, no question.  -- If true, bastard needs to lose his or her peace officer license.

"Cummings didn't receive any documented medical treatment until Feb. 11, the lawsuit says, when she was assessed by a forensic mental health physician at the urging of the local criminal court. The physician was told that Cummings appeared "increasingly confused" and hadn't been eating or drinking. The physician opined that Cummings may need hospital care. The same day a nurse attempted to make an assessment and noted that Cummings was disheveled and had poor hygiene, and that her left forearm was unsupported and had a reddish hue. the lawsuit says. Also on Feb. 11, an Erie County Department of Forensic Mental Health counselor said Cummings "appeared to be decompensated. She is disengaged and her behavior is bizarre," the lawsuit says."

Yet, nothing was done to get her the professional care she desperately needed.

"Cummings was placed on meal monitoring and "constant observation" during which a deputy was assigned to observe her every 15 minutes, according to the lawsuit. The lawsuit says nearly every jail record notation between Feb. 11 and Feb. 16 shows Cummings lying on the floor of her bunk, and for six days Cummings was seen "not to have consumed adequate food, not to have consumed adequate hydration, and is observed to be naked, urinating and defecating in her cell." "Despite this, no attempt is made by the above-captioned defendants to assist Cummings, have her transported to a hospital, or otherwise tend to her serious medical needs," the lawsuit states. "From February 11, 2016 to February 17, 2016, the above-captioned sheriff's deputies, sergeants and lieutenants assigned to observe Cummings literally watch her die and documented the same." On Feb. 13, a deputy saw Cummings urinating on the floor, placing her clothes in the toilet and attempting to put them back on. She told the deputy she had not been eating, according to the lawsuit, and said "I'm dying."

Yet, nothing was done.

"On Feb. 16, a forensic mental health worker saw Cummings "defecating on the floor of her cell, rubbing cereal on her body, and throwing food on the floor, according to the lawsuit. Records note Cummings "drank a little milk today" but refused food, the lawsuit says, saying "I don't trust" when encouraged to eat. A forensic mental health worker noted Cummings "needs inpatient," the lawsuit says, but she again wasn't transported. The next day, Cummings became unconscious and was transported to a hospital. She was found to be critically ill, having suffered cardiac arrest, severe dehydration, malnutrition and organ failure. She died Feb. 21. The lawsuit says she sustained "great pain, suffering and physical anguish" and was living in inhumane conditions where she was allowed to "wallow in her own waste" before her death."

Nazi America.  A goddamned de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"The lawsuit argues all the 73 sheriff's employees violated Cummings' Constitutional rights and claims three of the deputies engaged in malicious prosecution for charging Cummings for her non-compliant behavior while she was mentally unstable, essentially "criminalizing" her mental illness. The Erie County Sheriff's office did not respond to a request for comment from CBS News. A spokeswoman for the department wouldn't comment to the Appeal, citing the pending lawsuit."

What the hell could they say?  What defense can be made to the indefensible?  A massive, truly devastating failure of law enforcement.

"Albert said Cummings' family has been devastated by her death, but they hope that it will be a "turning point" in how people are treated at the holding center and a "vehicle for change" in terms of prisoner's rights nationally."

Don't hold your breath.  The worst is likely yet to come as our formerly great country continues to deteriorate.

"My prayer and my goal is for not another India to come through that holding center," Wyatt told WIVB."

Not good enough.  Nowhere near.  Short of an unwanted dreaded second American revolution, only one way for these atrocities to end.  Time for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, prosecute corrupt, abusive, criminal officers, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose sole function would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.

Local  and state authorities are egregiously incapable of handling these cases. Tend to protect their own.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Goes with the territory, doesn't it, Bill?  Precisely, why there is no faith or trust in your criminal jackbooted bastards.  Local authorities here in Nazi Llano County have their heads figuratively, securely lodged so far up their clueless ass their eyeballs are turning inside out.  Protect and coddle your clueless, out of control officers.  Imagine that.

Unadulterated, blatant ongoing horse shit.  ... Right, Bill?  F--k these jackbooted bastards.  Aren't worth a crap.  Continually abrogate their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Includes not only deputies, but the brass as well.  No principles.  No honor.  Lying, conniving, abusive, murderous jackbooted thieving thugs.  The American Civil Liberties Union needs to step up and represent the victims of abusive law enforcement.

To say nothing of innocent civilians all across our formerly great country who are victimized by abusive police.  Need far better representation than a public defender.  Forget?  It's how the bastards in government line government coffers.  All too often, looting the innocent.  Those on the bottom of the food chain.  ... Right, Sheriff?

No justice.  The American Way.  Nazi America.  When is this shit finally going to end?  All of it.  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty seven weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.

Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.  Who the hell are they?

When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff? Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up.  Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?

Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for? Ferociously pointedly, why are the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

Equally to the point, why are your jackbooted pieces of human excrement refusing to enforce Berardi's property rights?  Your goons have failed to take action against Theresa Ahrens when she tore down a no trespassing sign and barrier on Berardi's property.  Have you, your goons, and/or Madam County Attorney been bribed by Johnny Greene?

Why is Theresa Ahrens allowed by your goons to dictate what vehicles can and cannot be parked on Berardi's property?  Ahrens claims she has proof the property belongs to her where the vehicle was parked.  Has failed to produce it.  Surveyors say otherwise.  Back up Berardi.  Yet, your jackbooted bastards refuse to enforce Berardi's property rights.  Why?  Somebody lining somebody's pockets, Sheriff?

Ms. Ahrens micro-mini portable 'house' is parked on an unused unmarked Llano County road.  Imagine that.  Madam County Attorney well-aware.  Has done nothing.  Shit squat.  Egregiously ignored her oath of office.  Someone bribing you, Becky?  Lining your pockets, Counselor?  Paying you not to sell the unused unmarked County road to Berardi?  Doesn't the County want and need the sale money, to say nothing of the resultant tax income?

No question, County and State agencies remain determinedly, concertedly, achingly incapable of criminal investigation of their own.  Precisely, why a new federal agency desperately needs to be created whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, prosecute corrupt, abusive, criminal officers, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose sole function would be to adjudicate only such cases.  Total independence.  Certainly, go a long, long way to cleaning up this cess pool County.  Rein in the outrageously corrupt, abusive, achingly inept, self-serving assholes who run and own this hell hole.

Sheriff, you falsely claim the Kingsland County Commissioner has the authority to resolve this ongoing property rights issue.  Clearly, doesn't.  You, Madam County Attorney, and "Sonny Boy" are certainly an egregious impediment, continue to determinedly stonewall.  Someone's pockets are being lined.  Again, where's financial compensation for the damage Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 is directly responsible for to the Pace Arrow?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for this damage, to say nothing of infringement of Berardi's property rights?  -- Just getting started, Sheriff.  Far more to come.

-- You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Jackbooted kill-rate remains same over last few years.  The Washington Post reports:

"Fatal shootings by police are the rare outcomes of the millions of encounters between police officers and the public. Despite the unpredictable events that lead to the shootings, in each of the past four years police nationwide have shot and killed almost the same number of people — nearly 1,000."

Imagine that.  Were the bastards trying to match each year's statistics to make a point?  Enjoying abuse of power?

"Last year police shot and killed 998 people, 11 more than the 987 they fatally shot in 2017. In 2016, police killed 963 people, and 995 in 2015."

How they get their cookies off?

"Years of controversial police shootings, protests, heightened public awareness, local police reforms and increased officer training have had little effect on the annual total. Everyone agrees — criminal justice researchers, academics and statisticians — that all of the attention has not been enough to move the number."

Short of an unwanted dreaded second American revolution, clearly only one way for these atrocities to end.  Time for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, prosecute corrupt, abusive, criminal officers, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose sole function would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.

"Mathematicians, however, say that probability theory may offer one explanation. The theory holds that the quantity of rare events in huge populations tends to remain stable absent major societal changes, such as a fundamental shift in police culture or extreme restrictions on gun ownership, which are unlikely."

Abject bullshit.  Excuse for the inexcusable.  Egregious unwillingness to rein in the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  No more than that.  ... Right, Sheriff?

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

The following is an interesting twist.  Apparently, prosecutors are beginning to get the message.  CBS News reports:

"Illinois' attorney general on Monday asked the state's highest court to review what prosecutors consider to be a too lenient sentence for the white Chicago police officer who fatally shot black teenager Laquan McDonald. Attorney General Kwame Raoul and the special prosecutor who won the conviction against Jason Van Dyke said they believe Judge Vincent Gaughan did not properly apply the law when he sentenced Van Dyke to six years and nine months in prison. In a rare move, Raoul and Kane County State's Attorney Joseph McMahon filed a request with the Illinois Supreme Court seeking an order that would send the case back to Gaughan for a new sentence. Absent a new sentence and with credit for good behavior, Van Dyke will likely serve only around three years for firing 16 bullets into McDonald in 2014. Dashcam video of the shooting released by the city in 2015 showed Van Dyke continued to fire as the 17-year-old crumpled to the street and lie on the ground. The sentence was the first imposed on a Chicago police officer for an on-duty shooting in a half century."

No justice.

"Monday's move is the latest chapter in an ongoing saga that has included massive demonstrations, the firing of the police superintendent by the mayor and the ouster of the county's top prosecutors by voters a few months later, the judge's ruling to sentence Van Dyke to less than seven years in prison was met with anger and disappointment by activists and McDonald's family. Raoul reacted quickly. In one of his first moves after taking office in January, he announced he would review the sentence Gaughan had handed down just days earlier. Raoul bristled when asked Monday whether politics played a role in his decision, as was suggested by one of Van Dyke's attorneys when Raoul announced he was evaluating the case. "This is not a political question," he said. "This is a question of law."

This piece of human excrement needs to receive exactly what a peasant would receive for killing a cop.  Total parity.  No special treatment, consideration.

Why wasn't this son of a bitch immediately arrested?  Instead, afforded special treatment.  NPR reports:

"A man in a red Make America Great Again cap violently shoved a BBC cameraman and shouted profanities during President Trump's rally in El Paso, Texas, Monday night, in a startling moment that briefly interrupted the president's speech. The BBC's Ron Skeans was working in the area of a raised camera platform at Trump's campaign event when, he says, a "very hard shove" came out of nowhere. At the time, Trump was touting recent economic numbers to a roaring crowd in the El Paso County Coliseum. Skeans' colleagues say the apparent attack came after repeated verbal assaults on the media during the event. The BBC says it is "clearly unacceptable for any of our staff to be attacked for doing their job." "I didn't know what was going on," Skeans said, according to the BBC, describing the moment when his camera suddenly skewed down and away from the stage. Video footage showed a Trump supporter yelling obscenities as he was restrained and taken away from the area. The disruption forced Trump to pause his remarks. Shielding his eyes to see better, the president asked, "You all right? Everything OK?" He then flashed a thumbs-up sign in Skeans' direction."

Jesus Christ.  ... After apparently eliciting the attack.

"Other BBC staff who were at the event said the Trump supporter went after a group of news teams, and the cameraman had seemingly taken the worst of it."

Again, why wasn't his sorry ass immediately arrested?

"Trump has repeatedly called the news media "the enemy of the people" and accused journalists of creating fake news in an effort to make him look bad. The incident at the El Paso coliseum comes nearly two years after the president used the term in a controversial tweet to describe ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC and The New York Times. Had a very good and interesting meeting at the White House with A.G. Sulzberger, Publisher of the New York Times. Spent much time talking about the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media & how that Fake News has morphed into phrase, “Enemy of the People.” Sad! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 29, 2018 After Trump steadily used the "enemy of the people" phrase to describe the media last summer, he met with New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger to discuss the invective. But days after that meeting, CNN's Jim Acosta posted a video from a camera position at a Trump event in Tampa, Fla., showed dozens of the president's supporters shouting insults and making hostile gestures at the news outlet's staff. Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa. I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt. We should not treat our fellow Americans this way. The press is not the enemy. pic.twitter.com/IhSRw5Ui3R — Jim Acosta (@Acosta) August 1, 2018   Trump's rallies have triggered altercations before, and he has discussed the idea of whether protesters who come to the rallies should be "roughed up" or punched in the face."

Had it been anyone else other than the Trump nazi doing the same, his sad sorry ass would have been arrested.

"Despite Trump's professed disdain for the media, he has long shown a hunger to make headlines and gain attention for himself. At Tuesday night's rally, for instance, he pointedly drew the rally attendees' attention to the bank of media who were covering the event. "Wow, look at all the press back [there]. Can you believe that?" Trump said, prompting loud boos to echo through the auditorium. "This is like the Academy Awards used to be," the president said. "They've gone down a long way since they started hitting us a little bit, right?"

When was the last time a U.S. President apparently made so blatant an attempt to incite a crowd to violence?

Blatant racism.  CBS News reports:

"The Broward Sheriff's Office says it's investigating one of its own after the agency was alerted to bodycam footage of an arrest, CBS Miami reports. The encounter happened in July 2017, but it is now coming to light."

What took so long?  Better late than never, however.

"The camera is worn by BSO Deputy James Cady. In the video, Cady approaches a man named Allen Floyd, who is seen seeing on the curb of a parking lot while holding his 9-month-old son. He was then asked by Cady to hand over his ID. When Floyd questioned why, the deputy raised his voice, again demanded the ID and eventually grabbed Floyd with the baby still in his arms and placed him against a car."

Gets worse.  Far worse:

"Don't, quit f***ing with me, boy," the deputy can be heard saying on the video. "Why are you yelling at me?" Floyd responds calmly. A moment later he adds, "Stop calling me 'boy'."

Racist jackbooted bastard in blue.

"Records show Cady has been investigated before by the sheriff's office for use of force and conduct concerns. In 2003, he was cleared and in 2010, he was suspended for a day and told to review policy. The deputy is still on patrol, according to a BSO spokesperson."

More on this as the story develops.

As always, when an officer or officers do something heroic and/or of exceptional benefit to the community, it leads.  Always.  ABC News reports:

"Prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty against a 23-year-old man who allegedly gunned down a veteran Ohio officer. Wade Edward Winn is accused of killing Detective Bill Brewer and wounding Lt. Nick DeRose in the Saturday night shooting, the Clermont County Sheriff's Office said. The deadly shooting unfolded when the officers responded to a call of a barricaded suicidal person at an apartment in the Cincinnati area about 10:30 p.m. Saturday. Winn allegedly faked a suicide, prosecutors said in court Monday. When the officers rushed into the apartment to try to save his life, Winn was waiting there and allegedly ambushed the officers, firing multiple rounds, prosecutors said. Brewer, a 20-year veteran of the department, leaves behind a wife and 5-year-old son, the sheriff's office said. DeRose, who has been on the job for 22 years, has since been released from the hospital, the sheriff's office said. After Brewer and DeRose were shot, a lengthy standoff unfolded, the sheriff's office said. Officers "endured a barrage of gunfire" from the suspect before they took Winn into custody Sunday morning, the sheriff's office said. Winn was charged with aggravated murder and attempted aggravated murder, according to David O'Neil, a spokesman for the Ohio Attorney General's Office. Winn, in an orange jumpsuit and cuts across his face, made a brief court appearance Monday morning. He did not enter a plea. Bond was set at $10 million.

"Detective Bill Brewer, a 20-year veteran of the Clermont County Sheriff's Office, died after being shot while investigating a 911 call on Feb. 2, 2019, of an allegedly suicidal man barricaded in an apartment in Pierce Township, Ohio. Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost added on Twitter. "This Officer’s valor is now recorded for all time, written in blood. We mourn, and we will remember."

Indeed.  Uncommon Valor.

NBC News reports:

"A sheriff's deputy in Cincinnati, Ohio, was killed and another was injured following a standoff at an apartment complex, according to authorities. Officers responded to a call from a man at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday at the Royal Oaks Apartments, according to a press release from the Clermont County Sheriff's Office. The caller told the dispatcher that he was both armed and suicidal. Capt. Jeff Sellars of the Clermont County Sheriff's Office said a multi-agency Special Response Team was requested after shots were fired. After an approximately 12-hour standoff, Wade Edward Winn, 23, was taken into custody around 6:30 a.m. ET on Sunday. Winn allegedly exchanged fire with police during the standoff, killing Detective Bill Brewer and injuring Lt. Nick DeRose."

As always, when an officer does something heroic and/or of exceptional benefit to the community, it leads.  Always.  Sadly, the following is the second incident this edition.  ABC News reports:

"A Virginia State Police trooper who was shot in the line of duty Monday night has died, authorities said. Trooper Lucas B. Dowell, a member of the state police's tactical team, was assisting the Piedmont Regional Drug and Gang Task Force with executing a search warrant at a home near the town of Farmville, Virginia. An armed man inside the residence opened fire on the team shortly before 10 p.m. local time Monday, according to a press release from the Virginia State Police. The tactical team returned fire, killing the suspect, police said.  Dowell, who was shot, was taken to a local hospital where he died. He is survived by his parents and a sister, authorities said."

Uncommon Valor.

"This is an extremely difficult day for the State Police," Col. Gary Settle, Virginia State Police's superintendent, said in a statement Monday night. "We are humbled by Lucas’ selfless sacrifice and grateful for his dedicated service to the Commonwealth. He will forever be remembered by his State Police Family for his great strength of character, tenacity, valor, loyalty and sense of humor."

Things have come a long, long way.  NBC News reports:

"The rules were clear when she was growing up: Women were not allowed to fly U.S. military aircraft. But that was not going to stop Rosemary Bryant Mariner. The daughter of a Navy nurse and an Air Force pilot who had died in a plane crash when she was 3, Mariner made it her goal to be as qualified as possible to fly in the armed services. She got her private pilot's license at 17. Then she got her aeronautics degree from Purdue University in 1972 when she was 19."

Highly-gifted student.  Determined to fly no matter what.

"A year later, as a growing feminist movement took hold amid a push for the Equal Rights Amendment, the Navy lifted its restrictions and opened up its flight program to women — setting Mariner on a path to becoming a pioneer in the military. She was in the inaugural class of women who earned their Navy wings in 1973. Mariner then became the first woman to fly a tactical fighter jet in 1974, at just 21; in 1982, she was among the first women to serve aboard a U.S. Navy warship; in 1991, during the Gulf War, she became the first woman to command an aviation squadron. Later, she was instrumental in the repeal of combat exclusion restrictions on women."

Quite a pioneer.

"Capt. Mariner died at 65 last Thursday, Jan. 24, of ovarian cancer, nearly five years after she had been diagnosed. At her funeral service on Saturday, the Navy plans to honor her with a "missing man flyover" — a tribute honoring aviators who have died — that will consist of all women. It will be the first all-female flyover ever, the Navy said."

Wouldn't have been possible decades ago.  -- Can no longer call it 'missing man.'  That'll have to change.  :)

... Seeing the fighter pull out of perfect tight formation, wing tip to wing tip, at precisely the right moment leaving a gap, always sends a shiver.  Must be especially meaningful for that pilot and the loss he or she represents.

"Her husband of nearly 39 years, ret. Navy Cmdr. Tommy Mariner, said the fact that it will be all-female would flatter Mariner, but she "certainly would not say that that component is necessary." "It's wonderful that the Navy can do that and it's good that they have that many women where they can fill out all the cockpits with women," he said, his voice breaking. "But that would not be a requirement for Rosemary."

"Katherine Sharp Landdeck, a historian of the Women Airforce Service Pilots of World War II and a professor at Texas Women's University who was friends with Mariner, said Mariner's intelligence was one of her signature assets, along with her willingness to assist others reach their potential. "She was a badass pilot too. Landing on carriers? That's pretty badass. You’re not just landing a jet. You’re landing a jet on a runway that’s rising up and down in the seas, and I think as a woman doing it, you've got everybody on deck watching." "She shaped generations of people with that confidence in them and helping them find their path," Landdeck said. "She was a badass pilot, too. Landing on carriers? That's pretty badass. You’re not just landing a jet. You’re landing a jet on a runway that’s rising up and down in the seas, and I think as a woman doing it, you've got everybody on deck watching. Very cool under pressure."

... Hey, Sheriff?  Is it true Llano County Attorney Becky Lange has advised you to stay out of the "Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764" fiasco?  That right, Bill?  Isn't that obstruction of justice?  Also true your deputies have advised the Bolens to accept the status quo and not force the no-trespassing issue with Greene?  If so, isn't that also obstruction and official oppression?  When will you do your job, Bill?  As an elected official, you answer to the public, forget?  -- No honor?  ... No honor at all?  If the foregoing allegations are indeed true, didn't you swear an oath to uphold the law and Constitution?  Why aren't you doing so?  No guts?

Your deputy has been accused of abusing authority.  What action have you taken other than ignore the complaint?  Why aren't both Rodriguez and the County Attorney under criminal investigation?  The County Attorney appears to be obstructing justice, accepting the word of Greene in lieu of two surveyor companies who strongly assert otherwise.  Both the County Attorney and District Attorney have ignored complaints.  Par for the course in Llano County, isn't it?  Failed to do their jobs.  No surprise there, right, Bill?  Both receiving 'special consideration' up to and/or including a bribe from Greene?  Regardless, clearly, no justice in Nazi Llano County.  Bottom line?  Desperate need for an outside criminal investigation.  Conveniently, forget?  This County is ruled by men, certainly not rule of law and the United States Constitution.

Precisely, why there is desperate need for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, and prosecute criminal law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose only mandate would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.  Until that happens, the criminal bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole County will continue to do as they please.

Some salient quotes occurring later on in this edition vis a vis unfinished business County officials continue to ignore:

... "Not good enough.  Nowhere near.  Time for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, prosecute corrupt, abusive, criminal officers, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose sole function would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.  Local  and state authorities are egregiously incapable of handling these cases.

Tend to protect their own.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Goes with the territory, doesn't it, Bill?  Precisely, why there is no faith or trust in your criminal jackbooted bastards.  Local authorities here in Nazi Llano County have their heads figuratively, securely lodged so far up their clueless ass their eyeballs are turning inside out.  Protect and coddle your clueless, out of control officers.  Imagine that.

Unadulterated, blatant ongoing horse shit.  ... Right, Bill?  F--k these jackbooted bastards.  Aren't worth a crap.  Continually abrogate their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Includes not only deputies, but the brass as well.  No principles.  No honor.  Lying, conniving, abusive, murderous jackbooted thieving thugs.  The American Civil Liberties Union needs to step up and represent the victims of abusive law enforcement.

To say nothing of innocent civilians all across our formerly great country who are victimized by abusive police.  Need far better representation than a public defender.  Forget?  It's how the bastards in government line government coffers.  All too often, looting the innocent.  Those on the bottom of the food chain.  ... Right, Sheriff?

No justice.  The American Way.  Nazi America.  When is this shit finally going to end?  All of it.  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty six weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.

Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.  Who the hell are they?

When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff? Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up.  Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?

Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for? Ferociously pointedly, why are the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

Equally to the point, why are your jackbooted pieces of human excrement refusing to enforce Berardi's property rights?  Your goons have failed to take action against Theresa Ahrens when she tore down a no trespassing sign and barrier on Berardi's property.  Have you, your goons, and/or Madam County Attorney been bribed by Johnny Greene?

Why is Theresa Ahrens allowed by your goons to dictate what vehicles can and cannot be parked on Berardi's property?  Ahrens claims she has proof the property belongs to her where the vehicle was parked.  Has failed to produce it.  Surveyors say otherwise.  Back up Berardi.  Yet, your jackbooted bastards refuse to enforce Berardi's property rights.  Why?  Somebody lining somebody's pockets, Sheriff?

Ms. Ahrens micro-mini portable 'house' is parked on an unused unmarked Llano County road.  Imagine that.  Madam County Attorney well-aware.  Has done nothing.  Shit squat.  Egregiously ignored her oath of office.  Someone bribing you, Becky?  Lining your pockets, Counselor?  Paying you not to sell the unused unmarked County road to Berardi?  Doesn't the County want and need the sale money, to say nothing of the resultant tax income?

No question, County and State agencies remain determinedly, concertedly, achingly incapable of criminal investigation of their own.  Precisely, why a new federal agency desperately needs to be created whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, prosecute corrupt, abusive, criminal officers, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose sole function would be to adjudicate only such cases.  Total independence.  Certainly, go a long, long way to cleaning up this cess pool County.  Rein in the outrageously corrupt, abusive, achingly inept, self-serving assholes who run and own this hell hole.

Sheriff, you falsely claim the Kingsland County Commissioner has the authority to resolve this ongoing property rights issue.  Clearly, doesn't.  You, Madam County Attorney, and "Sonny Boy" are certainly an egregious impediment, continue to determinedly stonewall.  Someone's pockets are being lined.  Again, where's financial compensation for the damage Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 is directly responsible for to the Pace Arrow?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for this damage, to say nothing of infringement of Berardi's property rights?  -- Just getting started, Sheriff.  Far more to come.

-- You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?"

Counselor:

The enclosed emails were sent to the Llano County Attorney and Sheriff, respectively, vis a vis the above matter.  Remain unanswered.  The County Attorney appears to be protecting and defending the deputy at behest of Kingsland property owner Johnny Greene.  May have received some consideration from Greene up to and including a bribe.  Are the County Attorney, Greene, and the Deputy under criminal investigation?  If not, why not?

Re:  Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764

Counselor:

As you're well aware, we have an outrageously corrupt, abusive, achingly inept Llano County Sheriff's Office here in Nazi Llano County.  Worse, you and your office aid and abet these SS jackbooted bastards in black.  The issue at the moment is the same it's been the last six months.

How is it two surveyor companies, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, even the goddamned Sheriff himself now states Kingsland resident James Berardi owns the lots in contention all these months?

Yet, you ludicrously assert that's not the County's legal position.  It's not?  Why not?  You claim you're not a real estate expert.  Rather than accept the advice of two surveyor companies, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, and even the Sheriff himself, you've inexplicably chosen to follow the advice of property owner Johnny Greene, -- who conveniently happens to be reportedly in the oil industry.

Question to be asked.  Could you have received any 'consideration' in return, -- up to and including a bribe?  Only way to know for sure is for the District Attorney to conduct a criminal investigation.  Apparently, there has been none.  If not, why not?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to this Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.

Our achingly useless, worthless, gutless Sheriff has ignored an email vis a vis the damage this jackbooted thug is responsible for.  Interestingly, his fellow officers believe him to be an idiot.  Yet, the Sheriff continued to defend this piece of human excrement until he realized  this entire fiasco would not be swept under the carpet.

Rodriguez is indeed an idiot.  Would you believe this piece of crap ordered the motor home to be moved on to an unmarked unused Llano County road? That motor home has indeed been moved back to where it was parked before Rodriguez forced it to be moved.  Why hasn't the County paid for the cost of moving it back?  To say nothing of the damage.

Equally pointedly, why is it the County has allowed Theresa Ahrens to park and live in her tiny cottage on that very same road?  Why hasn't she been evicted by the County?  Why was she assessed taxes on an adjacent improvement she doesn't own?

Why is it, Counselor, Johnny Greene is paying for the attorney retained by Ms. Ahrens?  Is Greene attempting to make this all go away by bribery?  Greene has also informed Berardi he is going to sue.  For what?  Has Greene lost his mind?

What about Wells who installed a $4500 septic system on a lot turns out he does not own as a result of Greene, an outrageously inept County, to say nothing of the Llano County Attorney who remains equally determinedly clueless?

How about Bolen who hasn't a pot to piss in, but was nonetheless f--ked over by Greene to say nothing of an egregiously inept County, to say nothing of you and your goddamned equally incompetent office?

None of this is going away, Counselor, -- any time soon.  Will not be swept under the carpet as all the other crap going on in this hell hole County.  Not a chance.  Expect a full expose in this publication whether or not this outrageous fiasco finally gets resolved.  Including full public exposure of both the Sheriff and his jackbooted thug.

Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty six weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.  Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.

Who are they, Sheriff?  Their past history?  An ongoing investigation remains a lame bullshit excuse.  How can you and your goons be trusted when you refuse to disclose information?  One hundred forty six weeks.  Especially, your egregious failure to disclose the identity of the officers who pulled the trigger.  To cover your sorry ass, Sheriff?  Those of your thugs?  The people have a right to know what happened, how it went down.  You don't understand that, Sheriff?  Sadly, clearly, you answer to no one.  Including taxpayers.  Especially, taxpayers.

Until you and your goons come clean, doubt will remain this was indeed a good shoot.  The longer you drag your feet, the greater the doubt.  Think not?  Wake up.  Your credibility has tanked.  Isn't getting any better as this bullshit continues unabated.  One hundred forty six weeks.   Still no identification of the officers involved  ... Can't get your stories straight?  In line?  Discrepancy between LCSO and DPS? Wake up, Sheriff.  The public no longer buys the bullshit.  No longer trusts you.  On this and many, many other issues.  You have no credibility.  Absolutely, none.

Readers, this is but one of about four other highly questionable killings by law enforcement in Llano County in the last decade or so.  There was one within the City of Llano, another in a field near Fuzzy's Corner, Buchanan Dam, yet another in Point Tella, Buchanan Dam, still another in Tow.  If there are any others I may have neglected to mention, kindly email.

It's time the public be fully informed.  -- Know what we're dealing with here and how 'law' 'enforcement' operates in this hell hole County.  If these jackbooted bastards are not reined in, the life lost could be yours courtesy of a law enforcement system that is no longer accountable to anyone.  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

The Sheriff seems to have no clue the people who pay him and his goons are entitled to know whom is killing whom and why.  This shit always seems to be swept under the carpet.  Ignored.  The attitude of these jackbooted sons of bitches is trust us.  They can't be.  They've lied too many times.  Refuse to be accountable to anyone.  We live in a goddamned fascist police-state where law enforcement does as it pleases. Usually, with impunity.  That has to change.

The Texas Rangers have become rubber stamp to atrocities committed by law enforcement.  This also has to change.  No one is holding law enforcement accountable any longer.  No one.  No one in state or federal government. This is precisely why Ferguson triggered such an uproar.  There was no justice there.  None here.  None anywhere.  Officers are abusive, corrupt, inept.

Falsely ticket and arrest the innocent to line County coffers.  Court fees charged continue to be horrendous.  -- Aren't taxpayers already looted to pay these costs?  Aren't you boys not only double f--king those falsely accused, but taxpayers also hellaciously looted to pay the very same costs?   Yet, the criminal bastards in power in Llano continue to pile on the fees. This is nothing more than goddamned bullshit.  This money finds its way into the pockets of the corrupt, abusive bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole.

Would you believe the last time the Sheriff's Office happened to be 'audited' during the Garrett regime, reportedly, auditors couldn't figure out what went where and why? Yet, surprise, surprise.  Nothing was done.  There has to be transparency.  There is none.  Why would these thieving bastards want any?  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  How else could they so easily steal and loot with virtual impunity?  Worse, this reinforces jackbooted power in this goddamned, godforsaken hell hole County.

The public has a right to know the histories of the Sheriff's goons.  Clearly, the Sheriff doesn't think so.  That is, where they came from.  Why they left where they were.  What is happening here is the Sheriff is using 'personnel matters' as a convenient excuse to deny the public access to the history of outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept officers who are no more than criminals themselves.

He's protecting his outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards.  Worse, the standards imposed by sheriff's offices statewide with the exception of metropolitan counties are well below those of DPS and city police departments.  Why?  So the corruption, abuse, ineptness, and outright stealing can continue unabated?  This has to change.  ... Can't have that, can we?  Sheriff?  TL?

The public should understand Llano County authorities have it all sewn up.  Did you know the Texas Attorney General does not have the authority to investigate and prosecute County authorities on his own?  The District Attorney has to call for an investigation by the Texas Rangers.  Then, the State can prosecute if it so chooses.

Consequently?  Guess what?  Nothing will happen.  Nothing ever does.  The goddamned corruption continues unabated until you, the public, pressure authorities.  Precisely, why we all enjoy the 'best' government money can buy. Literally.  Without question, the corrupt, abusive, inept sons of bitches are all bought and paid for.  Firmly clamped to the taxpayer tit.  Dependent on money looted from innocent citizens caught in their web.  Phony fines and court costs cleverly designed to f--k the innocent and enrich the pieces of shit who falsely believe they run and own Llano County. Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

Interestingly, the former Sheriff and District Attorney were reportedly forced to retire after an outrageous scandal involving a drunk driving police officer from out of town.  Including special treatment of the drunken son of a bitch that no other citizen caught doing the same would have been afforded.  An honest, honorable Llano County Deputy suffered the consequences. Forget?  Great officers do not last in this hell hole County. ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

With all ongoing abuse in this goddamned County, one thing remains for damned sure.  We're just getting started, Sheriff.  You will continue to be exposed for whom and what you and your corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards have become, truly are, not what you phonies purport to be, that is, how you continue to f--k over a public you've falsely sworn to protect and defend.  -- Exposure, the only way short of an unwanted dreaded revolution to force desperately needed change in a goddamned fascist police-state. The Fourth Reich.

Have your jackbooted thugs been tested for steroids, Sheriff?  If you've nothing to hide, Bill, release the results of all drug testing.  'Personnel matters?'  Bullshit.  Looted taxpayers have the right to know.  They're footing the bill for all this goddamned corruption, abuse, ineptness. When will you and the boys end the shakedowns?  Looting of the innocent to line County coffers?  No honor at all?

Where are your swastika armbands, you fascist son of a bitch?  You and your thugs remain out of uniform.  Once again, Sheriff, and ad nauseum, did you and/or your goons pressure Schilling to exit the race?  Did you steal the election? If so, an aggressively stupid, achingly gutless public gets what it truly deserves.  One of the most corrupt, abusive, inept 'law' 'enforcement' agencies in our formerly great country.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

In follow up to the last edition, ABC News reports:

"A St. Louis police officer accused of shooting and killing his colleague while playing a Russian roulette-like game had his bond doubled during a court hearing Thursday morning."

Imagine that.  Couldn't be, could it?  Pressure must have been overwhelming.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"A judge at the St. Louis Circuit Court raised Nathanial Hendren's bond from $50,000 to $100,000, of which he can pay 10 percent to be placed on house arrest. The judge also ordered Hendren to surrender any firearms in his possession."

Why was this son of a bitch granted bail?  A danger to himself and the public.

"Hendren, 29, is facing charges of involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action in the death of his fellow officer, Katlyn Alix. Alix, 24, was off duty at Hendren's St. Louis apartment on Jan. 24 when just before 1 a.m. she was shot in the chest. Hendren and his patrol partner who was present -- both on duty at the time -- rushed Alix to the hospital, where she died a short time later. The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department initially called it an "accidental" killing in which an officer "mishandled a firearm." But investigators later determined that Hendren and Alix were playing a dangerous game with a revolver."

Apparently, the brass were protecting their own until the magnitude of the crime and public pressure became overwhelming.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"According to a probable cause statement from the police department, Hendren emptied the revolver's chambers, put one bullet back in and spun the cylinder. He then pointed the weapon away and pulled the trigger. The gun did not fire. Alix took the firearm, pointed it at Hendren and pulled the trigger.  Still nothing happened, according to the statement. Hendren then took back the revolver, pointed it at Alix and pulled the trigger. This time, the gun discharged the chambered round, according to the probable cause."

None of this adds up.  None of it.

"The police department immediately launched an internal investigation into the incident and placed both Hendren and his partner on paid administrative leave. The St. Louis Circuit Attorney's Office launched its own investigation with the help of the Missouri State Highway Patrol. The St. Louis circuit attorney, Kimberly Gardner, announced on Jan. 25 that her office had filed charges against Hendren. "This is a devastating incident for Katlyn Alix's husband, parents, family and for our entire community," Gardner said in a statement. "We will do whatever is necessary to get to the truth of this incident. Katlyn's family and this community deserve nothing less." On Monday, Gardner sent a letter to Col. John Hayden Jr., the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department commissioner, and Judge Jimmie Edwards, the city's public safety director, raising concerns about how the investigation was handled in its early stages."

Gets worse:

"Gardner said she believed there was probable cause that drugs or alcohol may have been "a contributing factor" in the shooting. Members of her team began preparing search warrants to have blood drawn from both Hendren and his partner, but police informed them that the local hospital will not honor the warrants -- even though that is a common procedure in criminal investigations, according to Gardner. Gardner said her team was later told that "in lieu of the more exact blood specimen test," the police department's internal affairs division had conducted a Breathalyzer test and taken urine samples from both officers under so-called Garrity rights, which shield public employees from self-incrimination."

How about that?  If you're a public employee, you're shielded from self-incrimination.  If you're Joe Blow up the block and get stopped by law enforcement on a 'no refusal' weekend, guess what?  Your blood is taken by force by the jackbooted bastards if you don't submit.  Goddamned double standard.

"This is a serious problem in objective investigative tactics," Gardner said in her letter. "Taking these tests under the cover of Garry appears as an obstructionist tactic to prevent us from understanding the state of the officers during the commission of this alleged crime."

Convenient, isn't it, -- especially if you're a jackbooted bastard in blue and have been drinking on the job.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Again, a goddamned double standard.

"Gardner also expressed concern over the police department's swift assessment that Alix's death was an accident."

You think?  Protecting their own until the pressure became overwhelming.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"In my opinion, it is completely inappropriate for investigators to approach a crime scene that early in the investigation with a predisposed conclusion about the potential outcome of a case," she said. "I understand your need to get information out to the public quickly regarding officer-involved shooting cases, however, the labeling of any criminal incident as an accident prior to a full investigation is a violation of our duty as objective fact finders."

Couldn't be this prosecutor is one of the few honest ones, could it, Becky?  "Sonny Boy?"

"Alix, a military veteran who graduated from the St. Louis Police Academy in January 2017, was buried Wednesday. Her family is demanding answers."

As well they should.  Their loved one died for nothing.

"The way how everything went down, I don’t like it," Alix's mother, Aimee Chadwick, told CBS affiliate KMOV in an interview. "I think there’s more answers. We need more answers. She loved her job. Even on her days off, she would go visit all her friends down there because like I guess when you're a police officer, [you have] that close bond with everyone."

CBS News reports:

"In an internal police misconduct report obtained by CBS St. Louis affiliate KMOV-TV, a police lieutenant alleges both Officer Nathaniel Hendren and his partner "consumed alcoholic beverages" while on duty the night Officer Katlyn Alix was shot and killed by Hendren during a game of Russian roulette. Lieutenant William Brown filed the complaint at 1:30 a.m. on January 24, alleging "Conduct Unbecoming an Officer," and suggesting both men also violated a regulation that says, "No employee shall report for duty or remain on duty with an alcohol concentration of 0.04 or greater. Moreover, no employee shall consume alcohol while on duty and/or engaged in City business."

Gets worse:

"In a news conference Thursday, Police Chief John Hayden said, "The circumstances around the shooting were much more reckless and dangerous than what I had originally understood." Hendren's partner's lawyer says his client had a few sips of beer at Hendren's home but poured out the rest down the sink. Police say Alix, Hendren and his partner met at Hendren's apartment while Hendren and his partner were on-duty and Alix was off-duty."

More interesting?  Get this:

"The apartment is three miles outside the district to which Hendren and his partner were assigned.

"Hendren is under house arrest and can't have access to firearms but it was unclear if he's confined to his home,  with nearby relatives or somewhere else. Hayden said effective immediately, supervisors and commanders will be present at all roll calls to reinforce with officers that they must stay in their assigned districts. Watch commanders will also confirm the location of their officers every hour using radios and GPS tracking information."

How is it possible the department didn't know these officers were three miles outside their assigned beat?  What is the identity of Hendren's partner?  Why hasn't this been disclosed?

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Delusionally believe law enforcement doesn't engage in entrapment?  Wake up.  NPR reports:

"Homeland Security agents created a fake university in Michigan to attract foreign nationals who wanted to use student status to extend U.S. visa privileges, according to a federal indictment unsealed Wednesday. The University of Farmington didn't have any professors or hold any classes — but that didn't matter to "students" who used the sham school to stay in the U.S. illegally, the government says. Officials say the university attracted recruiters who were paid thousands of dollars for connecting students to the bogus school, which had an actual office space in Farmington Hills, Mich. Eight alleged recruiters are now under arrest, and dozens, if not hundreds, of people who enrolled could face charges and/or deportation as part of an undercover operation that began in 2015."

Think this crime would have occurred had the government not facilitated it?  Called entrapment.  Quite sophisticated at that:

"Posing as the university's owners and staff, agents from Homeland Security Investigations worked with the recruiters to gather false student records, including transcripts, to deceive immigration authorities, according to the indictment. HSI operates within U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The complex sting operation resulted in the arrest of eight men who now face felony charges of conspiracy to defraud the United States. They are Barath Kakireddy, Suresh Reddy Kandala, Phanideep Karnati, Prem Kumar Rampeesa, Santosh Reddy Sama, Avinash Thakkallapally, Naveen Prathipati and Aswanth Nune. "Six of them were arrested in metro Detroit, one in Florida and another in Virginia," according to the Detroit Free Press. A grand jury indicted the alleged recruiters on Jan. 15, but those records remained sealed until Wednesday."

--Had to protect the entrapment operation for as long as possible.  LOL.

"From early 2017 to January 2019, the men "assisted at least 600 other foreign citizens to illegally remain, re-enter and work in the United States, and actively recruited them to enroll" at Farmington in a "pay to stay" scheme, the indictment states. Many of the alleged recruiters visited the university's office to collect payments for their efforts, according to the indictment, which says they were paid sums ranging from $5,000 to $20,000 on each trip. "Because of their recruiting success, this alliance collectively profited in excess of quarter of a million dollars," the indictment states."

Had government not facilitated the operation, truly believe anything on such a massive scale could have occurred?  Entrapment.

"The years-long operation has raised questions of whether federal agents entrapped the students — an idea that former prosecutor Peter Henning, a law professor at Wayne State University, dismisses. "It's creative and it's not entrapment," Henning tells The Detroit News. "The government can put out the bait, but it's up to the defendants to fall for it."

Day is night, night is day, and shit smells perversely sweet in a de facto fascist police-state, -- quickly now transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich. Wake up, readers.  This the kind of country you wish to live in?  A democratic republic in name only.

"Homeland Security's hoax was multifaceted. The school's website was registered in 2016 by the fake university and named a Dr. Ned Roberts as its administrative contact. Its office sat along a leafy parkway in Farmington Hills — a sign in the parking lot said the University of Farmington was on the second floor, next to a realty company's office. On its contact page, the ersatz university told potential applicants, "We'd love to hear from you." The Michigan operation has echoes of a similar sting that resulted in dozens of arrests in 2016. In that case, HSI agents created the University of Northern New Jersey (UNNJ) out of whole cloth — and used it to indict 21 "brokers, recruiters, and employers" from across the U.S., the Justice Department said. That sting operation began in 2013."

Nazi America.  Adolf and Benito would have been proud.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

In follow up to a case covered extensively here and elsewhere, ABC News reports:

"The woman who filmed the aftermath of the shooting of Botham Jean — the man killed in his own apartment by former Dallas Police Officer Amber Guyger — said she has been receiving death threats and was fired from her job after she uploaded the video to social media."

Why is it idiots in our formerly great country continue to protect and coddle the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue no matter what they do?  Including murder.

"Bunny says she didn't plan on uploading the video at first, but in the days after the shooting, she saw reports that contradicted what was on the video she took on her phone. When Guyger entered the apartment, she saw a "large silhouette" in the dark and shot Jean, thinking he was a burglar, according to her arrest warrant. She was off duty and not wearing a body camera at the time because it had been left at the station, per police protocol. Filming from a lower floor through the staircase railings, Bunny said in her interview that it sounded as if Guyger was making a personal call — rather than to 911 — as she frantically walked around the hallway outside Jean's apartment. She added that it appeared Guyger did not attempt to render aid to Jean. "It was just a lot of crying, a lot of hysterics," Bunny said. "She was just pacing back-and-forth for at least seven minutes, according to my video." Police said after the shooting that Guyger called 911 for help, and the responding officers administered aid to Jean at the scene. Once police arrived on the scene, one of the officers told Guyger that she was "doing too much" and another took her cell phone from her, Bunny said. The investigators then took Guyger back to the scene, Bunny added. Jean was then taken to a local hospital where he later died, police said."

This murderous officer was being protected by her fellow goons.  ... Right, Sheriff?

Delusionally believe racism does not remain a serious problem in law enforcement?  ABC News reports:

"A Detroit police officer is under investigation Thursday after he allegedly posted racist video of a black woman he pulled over for driving with an expired license plate. The Detroit Police Department said it placed officer Gary Steele on restrictive duty while it looks into allegations of racism and misconduct stemming from the inappropriate social media post. Steele allegedly posted Snapchat video from his squad car on Tuesday evening, seemingly taunting a black woman after calling for her car to be towed and ordering her to walk home."

Jesus Christ.  If true, this piece of shit gets to be judge, jury, and executioner, -- so to speak?

"Video obtained by Detroit ABC affiliate WXYZ, showed the woman's car parked on the side of a snowy Detroit roadway as she walked alone in the dark. "Walk of shame, in the cold, priceless," a person says in the video, using a "Celebrate Black History Month" filter, which included the caption "what black girl magic looks like." The video signed off with "Bye Felicia," a social media phrase that's often used to dismiss an irrelevant person. The Detroit Police Department confirmed that Steele was the person who uploaded the video."

Couldn't be, could it?  Cops aren't racists, are they?

"Detroit Police Chief James Craig called it a "troubling story" during a press conference on Thursday. "I'm angry because this was a racially insensitive post," Craig said. "It's not reflective of this police department."

It's not?  Sure of that Chief?

"The woman in the video, identified as Ariel Moore, came forward in an interview on Thursday.  "I've never had this happen to me. I'm kind of shocked. I don't really know how to feel right now," Moore told WXYZ. "I'm still trying to take it in."

Sue.  Sue the living shit out of the bastard, department, and city.

"Her mother, Monique Mobley, said she was outraged by the video. "What they put on there, that's racist," Mobley said. "They're demeaning my child for no reason."

In follow up, ABC News reports:

"Two Detroit police officers have been suspended amid an investigation into racially demeaning comments made during a traffic stop and posted on social media. Officer Gary Steele and an unidentified officer stopped 23-year-old Ariel Moore for driving with an expired license plate last week. They seized the vehicle, leaving Moore to walk one block to her home in the cold and dark. WXYZ-TV reports that video posted to Steele's Snapchat account showed Moore walking home as he says "priceless" and "bye Felicia." The caption tags read: "What black girl magic looks like" and "celebrating Black History Month." Police Chief James Craig said Monday that the officers have been suspended with pay. Craig earlier demoted Steele from corporal and apologized to Moore. The Associated Press sent a message Tuesday seeking information on whether Steele was available to comment or had a lawyer."

CBS News reports:

"A white Detroit police officer has been demoted after posting a Snapchat video in which he made derogatory comments about a black woman. He made the comments after he impounded her car, and as she walked away in the cold."

This racist bastard should have been fired.

"The video that was posted to Snapchat was first uncovered by Detroit television station WXYZ, who identified the officer as Gary Steele. Steele and another officer pulled the woman over Tuesday for having an expired registration. They impounded her car and she walked away after turning down an offer to be escorted home, according to Detroit Police Chief James Craig. Craig said the stop and the tow were both lawful, but the Snapchat video was where the encounter "went bad." The video shows the woman walking away in sub-freezing temperatures -- Detroit's low was 2 degrees Tuesday -- with the captions, "Celebrating Black History Month" and "What black girl magic looks like."

Jesus Christ.  Both sons of bitches should have been fired.  Disgraced not only themselves, but the department, all law enforcement.

"The officers can be heard commenting back and forth, "Priceless," "Walk of shame," "In the cold," and "Bye, Felicia."

Two pieces of racist human excrement.

"Craig said his department launched an internal investigation that could result in anything from a written reprimand to suspension to termination. In the meantime, the 18-year veteran has been demoted from the rank of corporal and re-assigned from his precinct."

Step in the right direction, but nowhere near good enough.  Why no ramifications for the second officer?

"I'm not going to tell you I'm troubled, I'm going to tell you I'm angry," Craig told reporters at a news conference Thursday. "And I'm going to tell you why I'm angry -- I'm angry because this was a racially insensitive post."

Nowhere near good enough.  Nowhere near.

"Craig said he has spoken to Mobley on the phone and apologized. He said the department will pay the fees associated with the towing and impoundment."

Jesus Christ.  The jackbooted bastards in blue enjoy discretion.  Could certainly have exercised it.  Especially, if this was her first offense.  Could have simply escorted her as she drove home.  Apparently, didn't have that far to go.

"Craig also referred to the officer's "troubling history." WXYZ reports the officer was charged in 2008 with physically attacking his ex-girlfriend in Canton and firing a gun near her head. He reportedly took a plea deal on a misdemeanor, received probation and was allowed to stay on the force."

Why?  Why wasn't he fired, prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law?  Had that happened, not only would the best interests of the public been served, but this latest episode would not have occurred.

"I think after reviewing his history, there's a pattern there, and I'm concerned about that pattern," Craig said. "That's something I'll be looking into and addressing as well."

Jesus Christ.  Too little.  Much too late.  Wake up, Chief.  You're out to lunch.  Sadly, so is most law enforcement all across our formerly great country.  ... Right, Sheriff?

Not good enough.  Nowhere near.  Time for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, prosecute corrupt, abusive, criminal officers, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose sole function would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.  Local  and state authorities are egregiously incapable of handling these cases.

Tend to protect their own.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Goes with the territory, doesn't it, Bill?  Precisely, why there is no faith or trust in your criminal jackbooted bastards.  Local authorities here in Nazi Llano County have their heads figuratively, securely lodged so far up their clueless ass their eyeballs are turning inside out.  Protect and coddle your clueless, out of control officers.  Imagine that.

Unadulterated, blatant ongoing horse shit.  ... Right, Bill?  F--k these jackbooted bastards.  Aren't worth a crap.  Continually abrogate their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Includes not only deputies, but the brass as well.  No principles.  No honor.  Lying, conniving, abusive, murderous jackbooted thieving thugs.  The American Civil Liberties Union needs to step up and represent the victims of abusive law enforcement.

To say nothing of innocent civilians all across our formerly great country who are victimized by abusive police.  Need far better representation than a public defender.  Forget?  It's how the bastards in government line government coffers.  All too often, looting the innocent.  Those on the bottom of the food chain.  ... Right, Sheriff?

No justice.  The American Way.  Nazi America.  When is this shit finally going to end?  All of it.  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty six weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.

Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.  Who the hell are they?

When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff?  Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up.  Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?

Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for? Ferociously pointedly, why are the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

Equally to the point, why are your jackbooted pieces of human excrement refusing to enforce Berardi's property rights?  Your goons have failed to take action against Theresa Ahrens when she tore down a no trespassing sign and barrier on Berardi's property.  Have you, your goons, and/or Madam County Attorney been bribed by Johnny Greene?

Why is Theresa Ahrens allowed by your goons to dictate what vehicles can and cannot be parked on Berardi's property?  Ahrens claims she has proof the property belongs to her where the vehicle was parked.  Has failed to produce it.  Surveyors say otherwise.  Back up Berardi.  Yet, your jackbooted bastards refuse to enforce Berardi's property rights.  Why?  Somebody lining somebody's pockets, Sheriff?

Ms. Ahrens micro-mini portable 'house' is parked on an unused unmarked Llano County road.  Imagine that.  Madam County Attorney well-aware.  Has done nothing.  Shit squat.  Egregiously ignored her oath of office.  Someone bribing you, Becky?  Lining your pockets, Counselor?  Paying you not to sell the unused unmarked County road to Berardi?  Doesn't the County want and need the sale money, to say nothing of the resultant tax income?

No question, County and State agencies remain determinedly, concertedly, achingly incapable of criminal investigation of their own.  Precisely, why a new federal agency desperately needs to be created whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, prosecute corrupt, abusive, criminal officers, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose sole function would be to adjudicate only such cases.  Total independence.  Certainly, go a long, long way to cleaning up this cess pool County.  Rein in the outrageously corrupt, abusive, achingly inept, self-serving assholes who run and own this hell hole.

Sheriff, you falsely claim the Kingsland County Commissioner has the authority to resolve this ongoing property rights issue.  Clearly, doesn't.  You, Madam County Attorney, and "Sonny Boy" are certainly an egregious impediment, continue to determinedly stonewall.  Someone's pockets are being lined.  Again, where's financial compensation for the damage Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 is directly responsible for to the Pace Arrow?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for this damage, to say nothing of infringement of Berardi's property rights?  -- Just getting started, Sheriff.  Far more to come.

-- You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Who says we're not savages?  ABC News reports:

"11 detainees at an ICE detention facility in El Paso, Texas, have been refusing food, some for more than 30 days, and six of the detainees are being force-fed per orders by a federal judge, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed Thursday. An additional four other detainees are on a hunger strike at ICE detention centers nationwide -- one each in the Miami, Phoenix, San Diego and San Francisco areas -- bringing the number of detainees refusing to eat to 15 nationwide, according to ICE. The Associated Press, the first to report the hunger strike, said as many as 30 are striking, per interviews with detainees, relatives and an attorney representing those on hunger strike. The hunger strikers are from India and Cuba, the AP reported, and some were so weak they can't stand up or talk. The detainees are on hunger strike because of verbal abuse and deportation threats from detention facility guards, as well as long detention periods prior to legal proceedings, according to the AP."

Delusionally believe the following doesn't amount to torture?

"The detainees are being force-fed through nasal tubes and those undergoing the procedure "are having persistent nosebleeds, and are vomiting several times a day," according to Amrit Singh, the uncle of two men from India currently in ICE detention who have been on hunger strike for about a month, the AP reported."

Coup de grace?  Epitome of unadulterated horse shit?  Get this:

"ICE "fully respects the rights of all people to voice their opinion without interference," the agency said in a statement, and "does not retaliate in any way against hunger strikers."

No, you just torture them by force feeding against their will.

NPR reports:

"At least six immigrant detainees on a hunger strike have been force-fed through nasal tubes by immigration authorities, while nine other asylum-seekers are starving themselves, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed on Thursday.  Eleven of the detainees refusing food, some for more than a month, are in custody at the El Paso Processing Center. Four others are in ICE detentions centers across the country: one each in Miami, Phoenix, San Diego and San Francisco. Ruby Kaur, a lawyer for two of the detainees in Texas says her clients, like the majority of those taking part in the hunger strike there, are Indian immigrants who entered the U.S. through southern border more than six months ago and turned themselves in to officials."

Here's the issue:

"They have tubes that have been shoved through their noses and IV's giving them fluids. It's extremely painful and it's against their will," Kaur told NPR, adding that as recently as Thursday morning her clients told her in a phone conversation that they are experiencing nasal and rectal bleeding and vomiting. They began the hunger strike at the start of the new year to call attention to what they say are inhumane conditions, repeated verbal threats of deportation and debilitating angst created by a total absence of information about their impending asylum cases. Kaur said that up until 10 days ago — about the time a federal judge ordered the nasogastric intubation — both of her clients and several others, were held in solitary confinement for two weeks "to intimidate them" into ending the protest. "They want to get out and be with their families. They want move forward with their legal cases," Kaur explained, adding that each of her clients have extended family living in the U.S."

Someone's lying:

"According to the statement, the ICE Health Services Corps is "medically monitoring the detainees' health and regularly updating ICE of their medical status." Additionally, the agency says officials have explained the negative health effects of not eating to the detainees participating in the protest. But Kaur says that is untrue. "My clients don't speak any English, and part of the reason they are doing the hunger strike is that ICE has not provided them with anyone who can speak Punjabi," she said.

"Since May 2015, the nonprofit group has documented nearly 1,400 cases of individuals staging hunger strikes in 18 detention centers nationwide. But Fialho said she is only aware of one instance in which the court granted ICE officials at a detention facility in Georgia the authority to force feed a man. However, in that case, the individual ended his protest rather than be subjected to the nasogastric procedure."

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

The following is an atrocity.  Classical example of kangaroo nazi justice in a fascist police-state quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  NBC News reports:

"An Alabama police officer who fired shots that killed a 21-year-old man on Thanksgiving night at a mall outside of Birmingham will not face charges. State Attorney General Steve Marshall announced Tuesday that his investigation found the officer did not break the law and will not be charged in the death of Emantic “E.J.” Bradford Jr."

The Attorney General needs to be impeached, convicted, removed from office for protecting and coddling a criminal jackbooted bastard in blue.

"Bradford's shooting at the Riverchase Galleria in Hoover happened in the immediate aftermath of gunfire at the mall, to which the officer — who has not been identified — was responding."

Why hasn't the identity of this murderous son of a bitch in blue been released?  The public is entitled to know who is murdering innocent civilians in its name.

"The attorney general's report says the officer mistakenly believed Bradford had fired the earlier shots and was justified in shooting him. The officer saw Bradford running toward the shooting scene with a gun and believed he was trying to kill the shooting victim, according to the report."

The Attorney General is deliberately protecting a murderous officer.

"The facts of the case demonstrate that the officer "reasonably exercised his official powers, duties, or functions when he shot” Bradford, the report states."

The Attorney General is re-inventing reality to protect an officer who murdered on the job.  Clearly, followed the 'shoot first, ask questions later' mentality embraced by law enforcement all across our formerly great country.

"Two bystanders — Brian Wilson, 18, and Molly Davis, 12, were also injured by the gunfire. Erron Brown, 20, was charged in November with attempted murder in the shooting of Wilson that happened before the officer opened fire on Bradford."

These jackbooted bastards couldn't even get their initial story straight:

"Police initially described the 21-year-old as the gunman and said officers acted heroically to “take out the threat,” but later corrected themselves and identified Brown as the alleged shooter."

The Attorney General has in effect justified the 'shoot first, ask questions later' policy of outrageously abusive, gutless, criminal law enforcement all across our formerly great country.

"The attorney general, whose office took over the investigation from the local district attorney in Hoover, also released surveillance video and other documents from the investigation."

All this should have been released far earlier, -- instead of giving goddamned law enforcement and their shills in the Attorney General's office time to concoct their bullshit report and defense of this murderous officer.

"Bradford's father called the attorney general "a coward" for the report's finding."

No question.  This piece of human excrement disgraced himself, his office.  Did a long-term disservice to the seemingly achingly few in law enforcement who are indeed trying to do the right thing.

“My son was murdered. And you think I’m going to let it go?,” Emantic Sr. told reporters Tuesday. “That was a homicide … You killed my son. You are a coward. You’re a coward too, Steve Marshall.”

Goddamned right.  Nazi justice.

"Benjamin Crump, an attorney for the Bradford family, said officers stated in the attorney general's report that they did not give Bradford any verbal warning. “We don’t have any evidence whatsoever that E.J. ever knew the police officers were there whatsoever," Crump said Tuesday. "E.J. went to his grave not knowing who shot him three times in his back."

Goddamned f--king coward.

"An eyewitness quoted in the report stated that she heard an officer say, “Drop your weapon, drop your weapon, sir, put your weapon on the ground,” and also say, “He is still not doing anything.”

Was the 'eyewitness' bribed?  Did it ever occur to the gutless jackbooted bastard his victim might not have heard him?  'Shoot first, ask questions later.'  Nazi justice.

"An independent autopsy showed Bradford was struck three times from behind — in the head, neck and the back. Crump said that race played a role in Bradford's death and that a civil lawsuit claiming wrongful death will be filed."

Take the bastards for all you can get financially.  Exceptionally seldom is there ever criminal justice for a murderous, corrupt, abusive officer.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"All across America, you see this symbiotic relationship between prosecutors and law enforcement that when they kill unarmed people of color or they kill people of color who are posing no threats, and they shot first and ask questions later," Crump said."

This is a problem across the board.  All races.

NBC News reports:

"On Tuesday evening, demonstrators burned two American flags outside Hoover City Hall as police nearby looked on. On the flags were spray painted the words "BLACK LIVES DON'T MATTER." Demonstrator Carlos Chaverst Jr. told onlookers at the gathering, "His life burned. And now this American flag is going to burn to represent what it’s like to be black in America." Birmingham activist Frank Matthews vowed civil disobedience in the wake of the attorney general's report, telling journalists earlier Tuesday, "Our action won’t be by permit."

Do not engage in violence.  Would be a terribly insane mistake to make.  Wake up.  Would grant the corrupt, abusive, murderous criminals in blue carte blanche to murder on the job.  Time for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, prosecute corrupt, abusive, criminal officers, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose sole function would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.  Local  and state authorities are egregiously incapable of handling these cases.

As always, when a cop does something heroic and/or of exceptional benefit to the community, it leads.  Always.  CBS News reports:

"A veteran Houston police officer who was shot after rushing into a gunbattle at a drug house to help two of his wounded colleagues said he had to do it "because I knew my guys were down," the city's police chief said Tuesday. The officer, who has been on the police force for 32 years, was shot for the third time in his career Monday, Chief Art Acevedo said at a press conference. "'I had to get in there because I knew my guys were down,'" Acevedo said the officer, 54, wrote in a note. "That just speaks volumes as to this man and just his courage under fire."

Uncommon Valor.

"Four officers in total were shot Monday, and a fifth suffered a knee injury in the gunbattle, which stemmed from an attempt to serve a search warrant. Acevedo didn't identify the officers because they all work undercover in narcotics. Acevedo described the officer he lauded as a "big teddy bear" who was also shot in the line of duty in 1992 and 1997. "He's a big African-American strong ox, tough as nails, and the only thing bigger than his body, in terms of his stature, is his courage," the chief said. "I think God had to give him that big body to be able to contain his courage because the man's got some tremendous courage." Two suspects were killed in the gunbattle. Acevedo identified them as Rhogena Nicholas, 58, and Dennis Tuttle, 59."

Here's what happened:

"Dr. Michelle McNutt, chief of trauma surgery at Memorial Hermann hospital, said one of the officers was shot in the face and in stable condition but required more surgery. "He's in a fight," Acevedo said. "He's stable, but ... we just need the community's prayers for him and his family." Another officer was shot in the face and would likely be discharged from the hospital later Tuesday, McNutt said. That officer is a 50-year-old sergeant who has been on the police force for 25 years, Acevedo said. The fourth wounded officer, who was shot in the shoulder, is 33 years old and has been on the force for 10 years, Acevedo said. The officer was discharged on Monday, the chief said. The officer with the injured knee underwent orthopedic surgery and would likely be discharged later in the week, McNutt said. That officer is a 50-year-old sergeant who has been on the force for 27 years, Acevedo said."

Hopefully, all will recover.

Seatbelts on.  The following indeed exemplifies the very best the military has to offer.  CBS News reports:

"A military veteran on his way to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Wednesday saw someone having car trouble on the side of the road. Being the good Samaritan that he is, the veteran stopped to help — only to realize the man was his idol, Colin Powell. "I'm not really starstruck that much. It was just a situation like, here's somebody on the side of the road who needs help, why not get out?"  Anthony Maggert told CBS News. Since they were only about 5 miles away from Walter Reed, he knew the man likely didn't just look like Colin Powell — he was Colin Powell. "The closer I got to the vehicle, I saw the face and I said, 'That has to be Colin Powell,'" Maggert said. When Powell got out of the car, Maggert realized he was face-to-face with the renowned general. Maggert told CBS News he served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He says he read all of Powell's books and that the former general inspired him to enlist. "[He] 100 percent did – maybe 1,000 percent," Maggert said. Maggert, who contracted a flesh-eating bacteria and lost one of his legs in Afghanistan, said he and Powell "chatted it up like two Army buddies" while they changed the tire."

Quite a day for both men.

"Powell wrote about the encounter on Facebook. "Yesterday was a reassuring day for me," he wrote. "I was on my way to Walter Reed Military Hospital for an exam. As I drove along Interstate 495 my left front tire blew out." "I am a car guy and knew I could change it, but it was cold outside and the lug bolts were very tight. I jacked the car up and got several of the bolts removed when a car suddenly pulled up in front of me," the former secretary of state wrote. "As the man got out of his car I could see that he had an artificial leg." Powell said asked Maggert about his leg and they chatted briefly about their service before they both left for their separate appointments at Walter Reed. "I hadn't gotten his name or address but he did ask for a 'selfie'. And then he sent me the message below last night," Powell wrote, sharing the message Maggert sent:

"Gen. Powell, I hope I never forget today because I'll never forget reading your books. You were always an inspiration, a leader and statesman. After 33 years in the military you were the giant whose shoulders we stood upon to carry the torch to light the way and now it is tomorrow's generation that must do the same. Anthony Maggert," the vet wrote. Sharing the selfie they took, Powell wrote: "Thanks, Anthony. You touched my soul and reminded me about what this country is all about and why it is so great. Let's stop screaming at each other. Let's just take care of each other. You made my day."

... And that of Americans across the country, General.

"The photo of the good Samaritan and the four-star general gained widespread attention on social media. Maggert shared the selfie on Facebook too. Maggert says he would have pulled over to help even if it hadn't been Colin Powell by the side of the road. "I just wanted to make sure he was safe. I would've done it for anyone," Maggert told CBS News. He said Powell was a "gentleman" during the brief encounter. Maggert said reading about how Powell overcame hardships and then excelled was an inspiration for him. "When I was a kid, I thought, wow, it would be cool to be in the military ... but I never thought I would do 23 years in the military. I never thought I would re-deploy as an amputee," he said."

Truly stunning.  Dedication to country second to none.

The following is equally stunning.  Seatbelts on.  CBS News reports:

"As the body of Sgt. Wytasha Carter made its way through a rainy Birmingham, Alabama, Saturday, a sheriff's deputy named Tiffany Dial stood and saluted the casket. Carter was gunned down while on duty. "It was a tough day for everyone here in Birmingham and Alabama and Jefferson County. It was a tough day," Dial said. Dial said she was representing her shift, and was the only one available. "I was representing everybody," she said."

Indeed, she was.  Here's what's so incredibly stunning:

"In a city mourning the worst, came a reminder of our best. A man named Shawn Allen never said a word to Dial, while he stood holding an umbrella for her for 45 minutes. The moment was caught on camera.

"Shawn Allen holds an umbrella for deputy Tiffany Dial. WBMA
"I didn't want her to get wet while I stood there dry," he said.

"Allen is a deputy district attorney. Two days after spending nearly an hour next to each other, Allen and Dial finally met. Happy as he was to do the right thing, Allen doesn't want that to overshadow why they were there in the first place. "My intention was never to get attention. My intention was to pay my respects to Sgt. Carter and to help this deputy who paid her respects to Sgt. Carter," he said."

ABC News reports:

"Two strangers have been reunited after being photographed during a somber moment in Birmingham, as the community mourned the death of a veteran police officer.  On Saturday, Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputy Tiffany Dial was standing in the soaking rain in front of an officer's memorial as she saluted the procession for police Sgt. Wytasha Carter, a 44-year-old father and husband, who was gunned down in the line of duty on Jan. 13. The slain sergeant, with 16 years of law enforcement experience, had served in Birmingham for the last eight years, Birmingham's police chief said. As Dial saluted, a man walked up behind her with an umbrella and covered her as she stood for more than 30 minutes, according to ABC News affiliate WBMA-TV. An onlooker captured the moment on camera. The two never exchanged a word as they paid their respects and when Dial finally turned around, the man had walked away, the station reported. "I didn't know he was there. My peripheral vision was cut off with my hat. ... I was in my moment paying my respects to Sgt. Carter," Dial said Tuesday when the news station reached her."

Even more impressive since he expected nothing in return, not even recognition of who he was.

"It just restores your faith, a little bit," Dial said. "It meant a lot in ways that you can't even really put into words. It wasn't just about keeping the rain off of me for that little bit. It meant a lot more than that."

Indeed, it did.  Far more.

"On Wednesday, Dial and the mystery man met each other after the news station's viewers helped identify the citizen. Dial and the man -- who identified himself as Shawn Allen -- learned they had more in common than that moment: The two also worked in the same building. "The procession was, you know, one of the most powerful, kind of, emotional displays that I hope I never see again. ... I was just real impressed that you were out there," Allen told Dial. He said he didn't speak to the deputy as they stood there out of respect for her."

Not just for her, but the slain officer.

"I didn't think there was anything that I needed to say to her and I just wanted to try to keep her dry and warm for just a few minutes," Allen said to WBMA-TV. Dial said she learned a valuable lesson seeing that image of her and Allen. "People do care about us and it's very uplifting. It can be very easy to get jaded in this job so it's nice to see the good in people," Dial said."

Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty five weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.  Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.

Who are they, Sheriff?  Their past history?  An ongoing investigation remains a lame bullshit excuse.  How can you and your goons be trusted when you refuse to disclose information?  One hundred forty five weeks.  Especially, your egregious failure to disclose the identity of the officers who pulled the trigger.  To cover your sorry ass, Sheriff?  Those of your thugs?  The people have a right to know what happened, how it went down.  You don't understand that, Sheriff?  Sadly, clearly, you answer to no one.  Including taxpayers.  Especially, taxpayers.

Until you and your goons come clean, doubt will remain this was indeed a good shoot.  The longer you drag your feet, the greater the doubt.  Think not?  Wake up.  Your credibility has tanked.  Isn't getting any better as this bullshit continues unabated.  One hundred forty five weeks.   Still no identification of the officers involved  ... Can't get your stories straight?  In line?  Discrepancy between LCSO and DPS? Wake up, Sheriff.  The public no longer buys the bullshit.  No longer trusts you.  On this and many, many other issues.  You have no credibility.  Absolutely, none.

Readers, this is but one of about four other highly questionable killings by law enforcement in Llano County in the last decade or so.  There was one within the City of Llano, another in a field near Fuzzy's Corner, Buchanan Dam, yet another in Point Tella, Buchanan Dam, still another in Tow.  If there are any others I may have neglected to mention, kindly email.

It's time the public be fully informed.  -- Know what we're dealing with here and how 'law' 'enforcement' operates in this hell hole County.  If these jackbooted bastards are not reined in, the life lost could be yours courtesy of a law enforcement system that is no longer accountable to anyone.  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

The Sheriff seems to have no clue the people who pay him and his goons are entitled to know whom is killing whom and why.  This shit always seems to be swept under the carpet.  Ignored.  The attitude of these jackbooted sons of bitches is trust us.  They can't be.  They've lied too many times.  Refuse to be accountable to anyone.  We live in a goddamned fascist police-state where law enforcement does as it pleases. Usually, with impunity.  That has to change.

The Texas Rangers have become rubber stamp to atrocities committed by law enforcement.  This also has to change.  No one is holding law enforcement accountable any longer.  No one.  No one in state or federal government. This is precisely why Ferguson triggered such an uproar.  There was no justice there.  None here.  None anywhere.  Officers are abusive, corrupt, inept.

Falsely ticket and arrest the innocent to line County coffers.  Court fees charged continue to be horrendous.  -- Aren't taxpayers already looted to pay these costs?  Aren't you boys not only double f--king those falsely accused, but taxpayers also hellaciously looted to pay the very same costs?   Yet, the criminal bastards in power in Llano continue to pile on the fees. This is nothing more than goddamned bullshit.  This money finds its way into the pockets of the corrupt, abusive bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole.

Would you believe the last time the Sheriff's Office happened to be 'audited' during the Garrett regime, reportedly, auditors couldn't figure out what went where and why? Yet, surprise, surprise.  Nothing was done.  There has to be transparency.  There is none.  Why would these thieving bastards want any?  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  How else could they so easily steal and loot with virtual impunity?  Worse, this reinforces jackbooted power in this goddamned, godforsaken hell hole County.

The public has a right to know the histories of the Sheriff's goons.  Clearly, the Sheriff doesn't think so.  That is, where they came from.  Why they left where they were.  What is happening here is the Sheriff is using 'personnel matters' as a convenient excuse to deny the public access to the history of outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept officers who are no more than criminals themselves.

He's protecting his outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards.  Worse, the standards imposed by sheriff's offices statewide with the exception of metropolitan counties are well below those of DPS and city police departments.  Why?  So the corruption, abuse, ineptness, and outright stealing can continue unabated?  This has to change.  ... Can't have that, can we?  Sheriff?  TL?

The public should understand Llano County authorities have it all sewn up.  Did you know the Texas Attorney General does not have the authority to investigate and prosecute County authorities on his own?  The District Attorney has to call for an investigation by the Texas Rangers.  Then, the State can prosecute if it so chooses.

Consequently?  Guess what?  Nothing will happen.  Nothing ever does.  The goddamned corruption continues unabated until you, the public, pressure authorities.  Precisely, why we all enjoy the 'best' government money can buy. Literally.  Without question, the corrupt, abusive, inept sons of bitches are all bought and paid for.  Firmly clamped to the taxpayer tit.  Dependent on money looted from innocent citizens caught in their web.  Phony fines and court costs cleverly designed to f--k the innocent and enrich the pieces of shit who falsely believe they run and own Llano County. Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

Interestingly, the former Sheriff and District Attorney were reportedly forced to retire after an outrageous scandal involving a drunk driving police officer from out of town.  Including special treatment of the drunken son of a bitch that no other citizen caught doing the same would have been afforded.  An honest, honorable Llano County Deputy suffered the consequences. Forget?  Great officers do not last in this hell hole County. ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

With all ongoing abuse in this goddamned County, one thing remains for damned sure.  We're just getting started, Sheriff.  You will continue to be exposed for whom and what you and your corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards have become, truly are, not what you phonies purport to be, that is, how you continue to f--k over a public you've falsely sworn to protect and defend.  -- Exposure, the only way short of an unwanted dreaded revolution to force desperately needed change in a goddamned fascist police-state. The Fourth Reich.

Have your jackbooted thugs been tested for steroids, Sheriff?  If you've nothing to hide, Bill, release the results of all drug testing.  'Personnel matters?'  Bullshit.  Looted taxpayers have the right to know.  They're footing the bill for all this goddamned corruption, abuse, ineptness. When will you and the boys end the shakedowns?  Looting of the innocent to line County coffers?  No honor at all?

Where are your swastika armbands, you fascist son of a bitch?  You and your thugs remain out of uniform.  Once again, Sheriff, and ad nauseum, did you and/or your goons pressure Schilling to exit the race?  Did you steal the election? If so, an aggressively stupid, achingly gutless public gets what it truly deserves.  One of the most corrupt, abusive, inept 'law' 'enforcement' agencies in our formerly great country.


2-1-19

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

'Stupid is as stupid does.'  When will law enforcement smarten up?  ABC News reports:

"An off-duty police officer was accidentally shot and killed by another officer in St. Louis early Thursday morning, authorities said."

How does something like this happen?  Especially, in light of the following.  Makes no sense:

"The accidental shooting occurred around 1 a.m. local time after two off-duty officers stopped by one of their homes during their shift. A female off-duty officer came by the residence and was shot in the chest, St. Louis Police Chief John Hayden Jr. told reporters at a press conference. The two officers took her to the hospital where she died, Hayden said.  No further information was immediately released, including the names of the officers."

Why not?  Whose sorry ass are they desperately trying to protect?  ... Right, Sheriff?

"St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson called the shooting "terribly sad."

Worse?  Inexplicable.

"The Metropolitan Police Department, City of St. Louis (SLMPD) confirmed via Twitter early Thursday morning that one of its officers had died from a gunshot wound. "We are deeply saddened to announce that the officer transported to the hospital has succumbed to her injuries. We ask that you keep the officer's family and the entire SLMPD in your thoughts and prayers as we mourn the loss of our officer and friend," the department tweeted.

"We are deeply saddened to announce that the officer transported to the hospital has succumbed to her injuries. We ask that you keep the officer’s family and the entire SLMPD in your thoughts and prayers as we mourn the loss of our officer and friend. pic.twitter.com/NGcU4tpXiU

— St. Louis, MO Police (@SLMPD) January 24, 2019"

Not good enough.  Nowhere near.  Somebody's sorry ass is being protected.  The question is whose?

CBS News reports:

"A male St. Louis police officer was charged Friday with involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of a female officer during what was described as a deadly game with a revolver. Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner announced the charge against Nathaniel Hendren, 29, in the death of 24-year-old Katlyn Alix, as they allegedly played a game in which a revolver's cylinder was emptied, one bullet put back and the two colleagues taking turns pointing at each other and pulling the trigger. Alix was with two male officers at an apartment when she was killed just before 1 a.m. Thursday . A probable cause statement from police, provided by Gardner's office, offered a chilling account of the dangerous game that led to her death. The probable cause statement said Alix and Hendren were "playing with firearms" when Hendren produced a revolver."

How the f--k does this shit happen?  These are supposed to be well-vetted, well-trained, well-educated police officers.  Not goddamned idiots.  ... Right, Sheriff?

Gets worse.  Get this:

"The defendant emptied the cylinder of the revolver and then put one cartridge back into the cylinder," the statement said. He allegedly spun the cylinder, pointed the gun away and pulled the trigger. The gun did not fire. The statement said Alix took the gun, pointed it at Hendren and pulled the trigger. Again, it didn't fire. Hendren "took the gun back and pointed it at the victim (and) pulled the trigger causing the gun to discharge," the statement said. "The victim was struck in the chest."

Jesus Christ.

"CBS affiliate KMOV-TV reports that authorities say Hendren's partner told them he told both Alix and Hendren that they shouldn't play with guns, adding that he "didn't want to have any part of it." He was leaving the room when Hendren shot Alix. Authorities said he walked back into the room and saw she was shot in the chest."

He could and should have put an end to it before it got that far.  Had the power to do so.  Could have certainly called for assistance.  Done something, anything other than walk out the room.

"The male officers drove Alix to a hospital where she died. Hendren also is charged with armed criminal action."

As well he should have been.  From the account, was complicit.  Did nothing to stop it.

Worse?  Get this:

"The two men were on-duty at the time of the shooting. Police Chief John Hayden has declined to answer questions about why the officers had gathered at the apartment, which was home to one of the men."

Why not?  What are you hiding, Chief?  Why are you sitting on this information?  To protect the perpetrators?  Reputation of the department?

"St. Louis police said the charges were the result of a promise Hayden made to Alix's family to conduct a "thorough and competent investigation."

Sounds like bullshit.  All of it.  Nothing adds up.  Are you protecting your sorry ass, those of both perpetrators, the department, Chief?

"Alix, a military veteran who was married, was not working but met the men at the apartment."

What could she possibly been thinking?

"Police immediately launched an internal investigation and placed both officers on paid leave. Gardner also began her own investigation on Thursday and enlisted the Missouri State Highway Patrol to conduct it."

Not good enough.  Nowhere near.  Time for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, prosecute corrupt, abusive, criminal officers, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose sole function would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.  Local  and state authorities are egregiously incapable of handling these cases.

Tend to protect their own.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Goes with the territory, doesn't it, Bill?  Precisely, why there is no faith or trust in your criminal jackbooted bastards.  Local authorities here in Nazi Llano County have their heads figuratively, securely lodged so far up their clueless ass their eyeballs are turning inside out.  Protect and coddle your clueless, out of control officers.  Imagine that.

Unadulterated, blatant ongoing horse shit.  ... Right, Bill?  F--k these jackbooted bastards.  Aren't worth a crap.  Continually abrogate their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Includes not only deputies, but the brass as well.  No principles.  No honor.  Lying, conniving, abusive, murderous jackbooted thieving thugs.  The American Civil Liberties Union needs to step up and represent the victims of abusive law enforcement.

To say nothing of innocent civilians all across our formerly great country who are victimized by abusive police.  Need far better representation than a public defender.  Forget?  It's how the bastards in government line government coffers.  All too often, looting the innocent.  Those on the bottom of the food chain.  ... Right, Sheriff?

No justice.  The American Way.  Nazi America.  When is this shit finally going to end?  All of it.  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty five weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.

Why are youstill sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.  Who the hell are they?

When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff?  Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up.  Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?

Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for? Ferociously pointedly, why are the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

Equally to the point, why are your jackbooted pieces of human excrement refusing to enforce Berardi's property rights?  Your goons have failed to take action against Theresa Ahrens when she tore down a no trespassing sign and barrier on Berardi's property.  Have you, your goons, and/or Madam County Attorney been bribed by Johnny Greene?

Why is Theresa Ahrens allowed by your goons to dictate what vehicles can and cannot be parked on Berardi's property?  Ahrens claims she has proof the property belongs to her where the vehicle was parked.  Has failed to produce it.  Surveyors say otherwise.  Back up Berardi.  Yet, your jackbooted bastards refuse to enforce Berardi's property rights.  Why?  Somebody lining somebody's pockets, Sheriff?

Ms. Ahrens micro-mini portable 'house' is parked on an unused unmarked Llano County road.  Imagine that.  Madam County Attorney well-aware.  Has done nothing.  Shit squat.  Egregiously ignored her oath of office.  Someone bribing you, Becky?  Lining your pockets, Counselor?  Paying you not to sell the unused unmarked County road to Berardi?  Doesn't the County want and need the sale money, to say nothing of the resultant tax income?

No question, County and State agencies remain determinedly, concertedly, achingly incapable of criminal investigation of their own.  Precisely, why a new federal agency desperately needs to be created whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, prosecute corrupt, abusive, criminal officers, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose sole function would be to adjudicate only such cases.  Total independence.  Certainly, go a long, long way to cleaning up this cess pool County.  Rein in the outrageously corrupt, abusive, achingly inept, self-serving assholes who run and own this hell hole.

Sheriff, you falsely claim the Kingsland County Commissioner has the authority to resolve this ongoing property rights issue.  Clearly, doesn't.  You, Madam County Attorney, and "Sonny Boy" are certainly an egregious impediment, continue to determinedly stonewall.  Someone's pockets are being lined.  Again, where's financial compensation for the damage Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 is directly responsible for to the Pace Arrow?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for this damage, to say nothing of infringement of Berardi's property rights?  -- Just getting started, Sheriff.  Far more to come.

-- You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?

NBC News reports:

"A warrant for involuntary manslaughter has been issued against a St. Louis police officer who fatally shot a fellow officer as the two were allegedly playing with a revolver loaded with one round, according to authorities. Warrants were issued for Officer Nathaniel Hendren, police and the prosecutor said in statements Friday. Officer Katlyn Alix, 24, was fatally shot sometime before 12:56 a.m. Thursday when she was off-duty at a home in Carondelet with Hendren and another officer, police have said. Hendren allegedly emptied the cylinder of the gun and then put one cartridge back into the cylinder, spun the cylinder and pointed the weapon away and pulled the trigger, and the revolver did not fire. Alix took the gun and pointed it at Hendren and pulled the trigger and it also did not fire, according to the probable cause statement. "The defendant took the gun back and pointed it at the victim pulled the trigger causing the gun to discharge," the probable cause statement reads. Alix was shot in the chest.

"The warrants for involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action were issued after police reported their initial findings to the Circuit Attorney’s Office, according to police. Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner said in a statement that “this is a devastating incident for Katlyn Alix’s husband, parents, family and for our entire community. Yesterday, we lost a shining star and a dedicated public servant.” "I have said this many times before; I will hold people accountable who violate Missouri law regardless of their profession, public status or station in life," Gardner said in the statement. "Today, as much as it saddens my staff and me to file these charges, Katlyn and her family deserve accountability and justice." Police said the warrants were issued "at-large." It was unclear if Hendren planned to surrender or if he has an attorney who could speak on his behalf. Messages to the police union and to the police department were not immediately returned Friday.

"Gardner said at a news conference that it remains an open investigation."

CBS News reports:

"A St. Louis police officer is in custody, three days after he was charged with involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of a female officer during what was described as a deadly game with a revolver. Nathaniel Hendren was charged Friday and booked Monday. Authorities did not disclose the reason for the delay."

Fascinating, isn't it?  Had it been anyone other than a fellow cop who killed the officer no matter the circumstances, his or her sorry ass would have been so quickly arrested, booked, and charged he or she would have suffered whiplash.  Clearly, no equal treatment, when an officer does the killing.  Double standard.

"A booking photo shows him with a black eye. Sources told CBS affiliate KMOV-TV that Hendren was hospitalized for busting his head through a police cruiser's back window."

Precisely, how did that happen?  How?  Wasn't restrained in the seat?  Or, did one of his fellow goons do a number on him?

"He is being held on $50,000 cash-only bond, an amount his lawyer is trying to get reduced, KMOV reported."

Jesus Christ.  Killed a cop.  Why is he being released on bond?  If released, why isn't bail in the millions as it would have been had it been a civilian killing a cop?  Or, bail denied.  Why the double standard?

"Katlyn Alix was with two male officers at an apartment early Thursday. Prosecutors say Hendren and Alix were taking turns pulling the trigger of a gun while pointing it at each other when it went off, killing Alix. She was 24. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help pay for Alix's funeral. A probable cause statement said Alix and Hendren were playing with guns when Hendren produced a revolver. "The defendant emptied the cylinder of the revolver and then put one cartridge back into the cylinder," the statement said. He allegedly spun the cylinder, pointed the gun away and pulled the trigger. The gun did not fire. The statement said Alix took the gun, pointed it at Hendren and pulled the trigger. Again, it didn't fire. Hendren "took the gun back and pointed it at the victim (and) pulled the trigger causing the gun to discharge," the statement said. "The victim was struck in the chest."

Truly stunning this kind of thing can happen in 2019 with law enforcement under such intense scrutiny. This officer died for nothingKilled by a fellow officer.

"Hendren's attorney, Talmage E. Newton IV, released the following statement: The death of Officer Kaitlyn Alix was a tragic accident that has unalterably impacted the lives of everyone involved. I urge the public, as well as members of the police department, to wait until the investigation is complete, and all of the facts have been presented, before coming to any conclusions about what they believe happened that unfortunate morning. My deepest sympathies and condolences are with Officer Alix's family."

In pointed response to the achingly moralistic, thinly disguised, yet clearly implied above gossip angle, who the hell cares why all three officers happened to be together at the same time and place as long as the intended activity was not illegal and/or against department regulations?  Bottom line here remains the same.

An officer needlessly lost her life.  -- That's the salient unresolved issue.   Counselor, are you denying reports from numerous sources a game of 'Russian Roulette' was in fact the cause of the officer's death?  Are these reports false?  ... Or are you bullshitting the public to secure more favorable treatment for your client?

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

More senseless aggressive stupidity.  NBC News reports:

"In her suit against New York City and three police officers, Linda Dominguez says she was hit with a "bogus" charge of knowingly misrepresenting her identity. New York City police officers charged a transgender woman with "false personation" and used pink handcuffs to mock her after they arrested her for walking through a park after hours, a lawsuit charges. Linda Dominguez says in her lawsuit filed Tuesday that she was hit with the "bogus" charge of false personation — or knowingly misrepresenting her identity —even though she explained that she was transgender and gave the officers both her current name and the traditionally masculine first name she used before she legally changed her name to Linda. The lawsuit says the 43-year-old Dominguez "had no intent to deceive the police or prevent them from learning her name or her identity" when she was arrested April 18. A police spokeswoman said the department could not comment on the specifics of the lawsuit. The department said in a statement that it "is committed to serving and meeting the needs of the LGBTQ community with sensitivity, equity and effectiveness."

The lawsuit implies otherwise.

"According to the lawsuit, which names New York City and three police officers as defendants, Dominguez was walking through a Bronx park to her apartment when officers stopped her for being in the park after it was closed. The lawsuit filed by attorneys from the American Civil Liberties Union and the New York Civil Liberties Union says that Dominguez speaks limited English and had difficulty understanding the officers, but that she first gave them her original name along with her birth date and address. The officers took her to the station house, where she explained to a Spanish-speaking officer that she was transgender and her legal name was now Linda, the lawsuit says. The lawsuit says the officers placed Dominguez in a cell, handcuffed to a bar or pipe using pink handcuffs, and left her in the handcuffs all night."

Jesus Christ.  Pathetic if true.  Says more about the gender insecurity of the officers involved than anything their target may or may not have done.  ... Right, Sheriff?

Especially, in light of the following:

"The officers referred to Dominguez by her masculine first name throughout her detention, laughed at her and referred to her as "he" and "him," the lawsuit says. Dominguez was arraigned the next day on charges of trespassing for being in the park after hours, as well as false impersonation. The charges were dismissed in August. Dominguez, a licensed cosmetologist and an activist for the rights of transgender immigrants, says that the arrest caused her "mental anguish, ongoing humiliation and embarrassment" and that she remains afraid of the police. The lawsuit charges that Dominguez's treatment violated the police department's patrol guide, which since 2012 has directed officers to refer to people by names and pronouns consistent with their gender identities. "This highlights the way the NYPD continues to criminalize transgender people just for existing," Bobby Hodgson, an NYCLU attorney representing Dominguez, said Wednesday. "It's one thing to change a rule on the books, but it's another thing to change the culture of an institution like the NYPD. Here they failed to do that."

The quickest way to end this bullshit is to fire jackass officers who do this.  Change statutes as necessary to prevent these jackasses from hiding behind statutes that protect them, -- allow them to do virtually as they please with impunity.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Yet, another black eye for the disingenuous, lying bastards in law enforcement.  The Washington Post reports:

"Facial-recognition software developed by Amazon and marketed to local and federal law enforcement as a powerful crime-fighting tool struggles to pass basic tests of accuracy, such as correctly identifying a person’s gender, new research released Thursday says."

Surprised?  Why?

"Researchers with M.I.T. Media Lab also said Amazon’s Rekognition system performed more accurately when assessing lighter-skinned faces, raising concerns about how biased results could tarnish the artificial-intelligence technology’s use by police and in public venues, including airports and schools."

Could certainly be used by law enforcement to impose its profound, deep-seated inherent racism.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Amazon’s system performed flawlessly in predicting the gender of lighter-skinned men, the researchers said, but misidentified the gender of darker-skinned women in roughly 30 percent of their tests. Rival facial-recognition systems from Microsoft and other companies performed better but were also error-prone, they said."

Frightening, isn't it?

"The problem, AI researchers and engineers say, is that the vast sets of images the systems have been trained on skew heavily toward white men. The research shows, however, that some systems have rapidly grown more accurate over the past year after greater scrutiny and corporate investment into improving the results."

Equally frightening, no?  Then again, precisely what law enforcement is desperately looking for. An edge.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Amazon disputed the study’s findings, saying the research tested algorithms that work differently than the facial-recognition systems tested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and deployed by police departments in Florida and Washington state. [Amazon founder and chief executive Jeffrey P. Bezos owns The Washington Post.]"

Riveting, isn't it?

"Matt Wood, an Amazon Web Services executive who oversees AI and machine learning, said in a statement that the researchers based their study on “facial analysis” algorithms, which can detect and describe the attributes of a face in an image, such as whether the person is smiling or wearing glasses. “Facial recognition” algorithms, in contrast, are used to directly match images of different faces, and would be more commonly used in cases such as identifying a wanted fugitive or missing child. “It’s not possible to draw a conclusion on the accuracy of facial recognition for any use case — including law enforcement — based on results obtained using facial analysis,” Wood said. The results “do not represent how a customer would use the service today.” Wood also said that the test was done on outdated software and that recent internal attempts to replicate the tests showed more accurate results than the researchers’ findings. Amazon said in November that it had updated its facial-analysis and facial-recognition features to more accurately match faces and “obtain improved age, gender and emotion attributes.”

Think it's not excuse making?  Wake up.  Get this:

"But independent researchers said the findings raise important questions about the deployment of Amazon’s AI. “Asking a system to do gender classification is in many ways an easier task for machine learning than identification, where the possibilities are far more than binary and could number in the millions,” said Clare Garvie, a senior associate at Georgetown law school’s Center on Privacy and Technology who studies facial-recognition software. Amazon’s “defensiveness and their unwillingness to take a closer look at this potential issue in their product speaks volumes.” The study’s co-author Joy Buolamwini, who conducted similar research last year, told The Washington Post that the study’s methodology was ethically sound, widely replicated and has been cited by companies such as IBM and Microsoft as critical to helping improve the systems’ fairness and precision. She called Amazon’s defense “a deflection” and said facial analysis and gender classification are fundamental tools that could be used by the algorithms to help speed up a facial-recognition search. A report by Georgetown Law researchers in 2016 found that the facial images of half of all American adults, or more than 117 million people, were accessible in a law-enforcement facial-recognition database."

Frightening, isn't it? Nazi America.  De facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  ... Right, Sheriff?

“Acknowledging a known industry issue and working towards solutions instead of deflection has given (Microsoft and IBM) a platform to position themselves as responsible developers of AI technology. However Amazon decides to respond, the research has been vetted many times over and already led to industry change,” she told The Post."

Believe it?

"The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology, which evaluates facial-recognition systems on accuracy, said it has tested systems by 39 developers and has seen growing accuracy in recent years. But the tests are voluntary, and companies such as Amazon and Google have declined to participate. Buolamwini urged Amazon to submit its models for the public benchmark tests."

Fascinating, isn't it?  This shit should be against the law.  Why isn't it?  Direct threat to a democratic republic, life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"She also urged Amazon to alert clients of system biases and “immediately halt its use in high-stakes contexts like policing and government surveillance.”

You think?

"The promise of facial-recognition technology that could precisely identify people from afar has touched off a multimillion-dollar race among tech companies, which contend that the technology could speed up police investigations, improve public security and save lives. An FBI counterterrorism official, speaking in November at an Amazon Web Services conference, said the bureau had seen remarkable results when testing the software on data from the Las Vegas mass shooting in 2017."

Delusionally believe that will happen?  Is even possible?  The following is far more likely:

"But questions surrounding the systems’ accuracy — and concerns that the technology could be used to surveil people without their knowledge or consent, stifling public protests and chilling free speech — have led civil rights and privacy advocates to speak out against a technology they fear could yield potentially deadly results. A software flaw, for instance, could motivate police or security personnel to react violently toward a person incorrectly flagged as a wanted criminal. The technology has fueled a growing debate in Silicon Valley and Washington over how to regulate against possible dangers, with some lawmakers calling for a more robust national law governing use and privacy. Some Amazon employees and shareholders have urged the company not to sell facial-recognition software to police, and executives from other companies have urged the government to rein in the industry."

Sell this to the jackbooted bastards in law enforcement?  You're no more than a goddamned traitor.

"Satya Nadella, chief executive of Microsoft, which is developing facial-recognition software but has also called for stronger regulation, said last week that the facial-recognition business is “just terrible” and “absolutely a race to the bottom." "It's all in the name of competition. Whoever wins a deal can do anything. That's not going to end well for us as an industry or for us as a society,” Nadella said. “It is better to have some modicum of rules by which we all play so we protect what actually matters the most.” The technology’s deployment has quickly outpaced regulation, and facial-recognition systems can now be found in airports, concert halls and restaurants. Children, parents and visitors of schools and community centers across the United States are also being scanned by the unproven systems for potential security threats."

... Hear the rumble?

"Tests conducted by the American Civil Liberties Union last summer found that Rekognition had mismatched the photos of 28 members of Congress with the mug shots of people who had been arrested, with higher error rates for people of color. Amazon said those tests were incorrectly administered in a way that skewed the results. Facial-identification systems work by breaking down images into complex numerical codes known as hashes that can be compared rapidly across a vast database of other images. Similar AI technologies are used to suggest photo tags on Facebook, unlock the Apple iPhone or confirm a traveler’s identity at airports across the United States."

Frightening, isn't it?

"When facial-recognition or facial-analysis algorithms return results, they include ratings of their own confidence in their findings: A direct match may be 99 percent, while a fuzzier or more inconclusive match would be rated far less. Executives at Amazon and other companies have challenged similar research by arguing that forcing the algorithms to choose a specific male-or-female answer can provide misleading results, and runs counter to how police, engineers and other users are trained to use the technology in real life. A study last year by Buolamwini and co-author Timnit Gebru found similar gender-classification errors — and broad accuracy gaps between lighter and darker skin tones — in the systems developed by IBM, Microsoft and the Chinese tech company Face++.

“The potential for weaponization and abuse of facial-analysis technologies cannot be ignored,” Buolamwini and study co-author Deborah Raji wrote."

... Hear the rumble?  An unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Another egregious example of law enforcement malfeasance rubber stamped by prosecutors.  NPR reports:

"A state's attorney said Thursday that he will not not pursue criminal charges in the death of Anton Black, a 19-year-old Maryland man who died in September after a foot chase and struggle with police. The state's attorney also said he wouldn't ask a grand jury to investigate the case, despite the wishes of Black's family."

Nazi justice.  Kangaroo in nature.  What are you so afraid of, Counselor?  The truth?

"Police in Greensboro, near the Eastern Shore of Maryland, approached Black on Sept. 15 in response to reports of a kidnapping. Black had been seen with a 12-year-old child, who family later said was a friend of Black's. Video released Thursday by the Greensboro Police Department and obtained by The Baltimore Sun, shows that when Officer Thomas Webster IV asked Black to put his hands behind him, Black took off running. The video shows the chase, struggle, and ultimately futile attempt by officers and emergency medical workers to save Black's life. Black's family says that his life should not have been put in danger in the first place. On Thursday, the Baltimore Sun editorial board said Black never should have been arrested. "Mr. Black ran for reasons that only he would know," the editorial board said. "Maybe he was scared of what would happen to him in a justice system that has failed African-American men more times than we can count."

It is incredibly stupid to run from the jackbooted bastards in blue.  Most often, a fatal error in judgment.  Grants these pieces of shit carte blanche to murder on the job.  Don't give them the satisfaction.

"Further complicating the matter is that Webster, who tased Black and helped hold him down, has previously come under scrutiny for using excessive force."

Surprised?  Why?  Abusive officers are protected and coddled.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Par for the course in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Bill?

"Webster was arrested in 2015 after a grand jury found it likely that he had committed a crime when, as an officer in Dover, Del., he kicked an unarmed man in the face. The victim was black. Court documents released in 2015 showed he had dozens of use-of-force reports in his personnel file. Webster was found not guilty of assault. Greensboro hired him last year to become the town's fourth police officer, over the protests of several Greensboro citizens who "worried about the message the town was sending to people, especially people of color," local media reported at the time."

Readers?  Wake up.  Ubiquitous problem all over our formerly great country.  ... Right, Sheriff?

Here comes the excuse making by our outrageously corrupt, abusive, hopelessly inept government:

"While Black's death is tragic, it wasn't criminal, said Caroline County State's Attorney Joe Riley. The state attorney's office "is not empowered to prosecute tragic acts," Riley said in a statement released Thursday. Riley cited the autopsy, which found Black suffered "sudden cardiac death" caused by a congenital heart defect. The medical examiner's report "does say that it is likely that the stress and the struggle with law enforcement in conjunction with his mental health status and his congenital heart defects contributed to his death." The report also makes it clear that Black was never choked, "physically struck" by the officers or "had force applied to his neck," Riley said. Webster was justified in arresting Black, Riley said. Webster stated that he had seen Black "dragging the younger male down the road," holding him in a "half nelson" and pinning him against the hood of a car. "On the body cam footage, the juvenile is clearly in distress and denies that Anton Black is his brother," Riley said in his press release."

This goddamned government clearly lied to cover its ass and that of the jackbooted bastard in blue responsible:

"The Black family released the State Medical Examiner's autopsy Thursday, which documented at least 43 blunt trauma wounds across his body. The toxicology screen did not find any controlled dangerous substances, the family said in its statement. The state medical examiner's office, which ruled the death an accident, "lets the police off way too easy," the Sun wrote in its editorial. "Even without the meticulous cataloging of the 43 cuts, bruises and abrasions on Black's body that his family's attorneys compiled from the autopsy, we can say that had police done their jobs responsibly, he would be alive."

Wouldn't want to confuse the nazi element in our formerly great country with the truth, would we?

"In its statement, the Black family said there was no good reason for officers to use the degree of force they did: "There was no reason to tase him. There was no reason for the officer to tackle him, restrain him and shackle him. There was no reason to inflict 43 blunt trauma wounds on Anton Black. There was no reason for Anton Black to die."

The jackbooted bastards got their cookies off killing this 19-year-old kid.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"At a community meeting earlier this month, former Washington, D.C., police officer Trevor Hewick, who was working as a private investigator for the family, said that after examining the video, he had concluded that Black was killed with a chokehold. "I can stand here and tell you I am very confident in what happened to Anton," said Hewick, according to Maryland Matters. "They killed him and it's murder."

How about that? This assessment coming from a former officer.

Account goes on and on.  Highly damning of law enforcement.  Yet, no indictment.  No justice.  Not in Nazi America.  De facto fascist police-state since 9/11, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.

CBS News reports:

"Officials have released body camera video of a deadly encounter between police and a black teenager who died after struggling with officers in a town on Maryland's Eastern Shore, footage that fueled a civil rights group's call for an independent investigation. Greensboro Police Chief Mike Petyo released the footage after a county prosecutor announced Thursday that he isn't asking a grand jury to consider criminal charges in the September 2018 death of 19-year-old Anton Black. The video shows Black's mother screaming after police chased her son to the driveway of his family's home, where an officer smashed a car window to get to Black inside and then shocked him with a stun gun before the teen struggled with three officers and a civilian. The footage also captured how Black's mother and officers reacted when they realized he stopped responding."

No justice.  Protection of the jackbooted bastards in law enforcement:

"Caroline County State's Attorney Joseph Riley said in a statement that his office "is not empowered to prosecute tragic acts." An autopsy report, signed Wednesday by the state's chief medical examiner, says Black suffered "sudden cardiac death." It said a congenital heart condition, mental illness, and stress from the struggle likely contributed to his death. Lawyers for Black's family vowed Thursday to ask the U.S. Justice Department's civil rights division to investigate his death. The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland joined their call for a federal investigation or an independent investigation by the governor-appointed Maryland State Prosecutor, whose office investigates misconduct in office by public officials or employees. The group said in a statement Friday that the "disturbing" video shows officers used excessive force on a man who shouldn't have been arrested. Family attorneys said in a statement Black committed no crime and there was no reason for Webster and the other officers from neighboring departments to chase him back to his home, no reason for Webster to break the car's window, and no reason to Tase the teen or restrain him. "There was no reason for Anton Black to die," the statement said."

The bastards clearly stonewalled:

"It says the family only Wednesday received the autopsy report, though it was completed a day after his death."

Why the delay?  What are you hiding?  Who are you protecting?

"The ACLU is outraged by the gross delay in the handling and release of information related to the autopsy and police body camera footage, which raises significant red flags that local law enforcement agencies have something to hide in Anton's death," the statement says. Riley told The Baltimore Sun that his office's investigation remains open. "If I am provided new information," he said, "that could potentially change my position." Family attorneys had urged Riley to convene a grand jury for the investigation. They claim police used excessive force on the teen and argue the autopsy report mischaracterizes his death as accidental. The attorneys said in a statement the autopsy notes 43 abrasions, contusions or hemorrhages they say Black suffered during the struggle with officers. "The autopsy raises serious questions about why such a high degree of force was used on an unarmed teenager on his own property who posed no threat to law enforcement or the public," Timothy Maloney, one of the family lawyers, wrote in an email Thursday."

More to come.  Much more to come as this story develops.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Think there aren't serious ongoing problems within the prison system?  ABC News reports:

"A newly released video shows the brutality of an Ohio inmate's knife attack on four other prisoners who were handcuffed to a table and unable to defend themselves. The video obtained by The Associated Press reveals for the first time the extent of the victims' injuries and raises questions about how the bloody attack happened inside the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville, one of Ohio's most secure prisons. Additional security concerns were raised months later when the same prisoner was allegedly involved in a knife attack that left a guard severely injured and hospitalized for months. Shamieke Pugh was one of the four inmates in the first attack on June 4, 2017. "He was trying to kill us, for sure," said Pugh, who is now out of prison and recovering from multiple stab wounds in his arm, chest and back. The four prisoners were playing cards during an out-of-cell recreation period. Pugh, 28, believes guards set up the attack, something the prison system, the guards' union and the prosecutor who brought charges against the attacker strongly deny."

How else could it have occurred?

Jackbooted bastards in blue sued.  ABC News reports:

"Family members of Stephon Clark, the unarmed black man fatally shot by police in Sacramento last March, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the city and two police officers on Monday, citing racial profiling and excessive force."

About time.  What took so long?

"The suit, which names Terrence Mercadal, Jared Robinet and the city as defendants, is seeking at least $20 million in damages in connection to the 22-year-old's death."

Not good enough.  Nowhere near.  Only when communities face bankruptcy as a result of the actions of these criminal jackbooted bastards will this shit finally end.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"This family deserves answers and full transparency from the officers, the city and the Sacramento Police Department on the unjustified use of excessive and lethal force that killed Stephon Clark and robbed his children of a future with their father," Brian Panish, a lawyer representing Clark's children, said in a statement. "When the facts are fully disclosed," he added, "we are confident that a jury will deliver justice that reflects how grossly the police and city officials failed Stephon, his family and the people of Sacramento."

Readers will recall this case was covered repeatedly here and elsewhere:

"Clark was shot and killed by Sacramento police officers in his grandmother's backyard on March 18, 2018, after officers responded to a 911 call that described a man in a hoodie breaking car windows and hiding in a yard. When the officers encountered Clark, according to body-cam footage, they believed he was in possession of a "toolbar." One of the officers said Clark motioned toward them, and another officer was heard yelling, "Show me your hands ... gun, gun, gun." The two officers fired 20 shots, hitting Clark at least seven times. Investigators later determined Clark had been holding only a cellphone."

Murder.  Blatant.

"The Sacramento police executed Stephon Clark in his grandparents' backyard, mistaking his cell phone for a gun, assuming he was a criminal threat simply because he was a black man," Ben Crump, a lawyer for Clark’s family, said in a statement. "Stephon's life had value. In America, a life -- even a black life -- can't be arbitrarily extinguished without holding those responsible accountable."

Someone's got to figuratively bring these murderous bastards to their knees.

"In a statement released on Monday, the Sacramento County District Attorney's Office said it received a "voluminous investigative report" about the fatal shooting from the Sacramento Police Department on Oct. 25. It received "further substantial investigative reports" and related materials from the Attorney General's Department of Justice investigators on earlier this month, according to the statement. "Our timeline for completion of our review has thus been delayed as we process the supplemental materials," the statement said. "We will take whatever time is needed to ensure a fair, thorough, and accurate review of this matter."

Think so?  Possible in Nazi America?  No more than a goddamned de facto fascist police-state since 9/11, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.

"The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California on behalf of Clark's two sons, his parents and his grandparents. It is not clear if Mercadal and Robinet, the two officers named in the lawsuit, have retained attorneys."

Hopefully, these two murderous bastards will finally get their day in court.

Another needless murder of a kid by a jackbooted bastard in blue.  NBC News reports:

"A 14-year-old boy holding an airsoft gun was fatally shot by a Tempe, Arizona, police officer on Tuesday. Officers responding to a call about a suspicious vehicle discovered a person "who was in the process of burglarizing the vehicle" just after 2:30 p.m. MST (4:30 p.m. ET) Tuesday, according to a statement from the Tempe Police Department."

The criminal jackbooted bastards in blue don't get to be judge, jury, and executioner in a supposedly democratic republic.  Forget?

"Antonio Arce, 14, was shot and killed by police in Tempe, Arizona, on Jan. 15, 2019. Facebook

"As officers approached, the suspect ran away holding what they thought was a handgun, the statement said. An officer raced after the suspect giving "verbal commands," and during the chase "perceived a threat" and fired his weapon, hitting the teen. They did not specify how many shots were fired. Officers called paramedics and performed CPR, but the boy was later pronounced dead at the hospital. The weapon found near the 14-year-old was a replica 1911 model airsoft gun, which police believe was stolen from the car along with other items. The teen has not been identified by police, but his brother, Jason Gonzalez, told NBC News that his name was Antonio Arce."

What is the identity of the officer?  The public has a right to this information.

"Police said the shooting was captured on the officer's body camera, and the Tempe Police Department will investigate the incident along with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office."

Means squat shit.  The jackbooted bastard will likely be protected and coddled.  ... Right, Sheriff?

Get this.  Truer words never spoken:

"The man whose vehicle was broken into told NBC affiliate KPNX that the pellet gun the boy was holding was his and that he "didn't deserve to die because of something he took from me."

You think?

CBS News reports:

"The Tempe Police Department said Wednesday a "man" who was shot by an officer and later died at a hospital was a 14-year-old boy, reports CBS Phoenix affiliate KPHO-TV."

These thugs in uniform understand the difference between a 14-year-old kid and a 'man?'

"Police also said he had a replica 1911 model airsoft gun, not a real handgun. Police said the officer was chasing the teen Tuesday afternoon and at one point, the teen turned around, the officer felt threatened and fired his gun."

Was the jackbooted bastard lying?  Let's see the body cam video.

"This is unfortunately a situation that the officer is going to have to live with forever. They're going to carry some issues with them now that they know it wasn't an actual firearm. However, they're doing exactly what they're supposed to do by policy and procedure in their training with the police department," said Kevin Boontjer, a retired police sergeant."

Policy and procedure that desperately need to change.  Not working.  Too aggressively stupid to understand?

"The teen was later found in an alley and taken to the hospital."

Why hasn't the body cam video been released?  Let the public judge for itself.  You bastards have lied too many times.  Have no credibility.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"During the chase, the officer perceived a threat and shot the teen. Police said the incident was recorded on the officer's body camera. "It really doesn't change the dynamics of the event from the officer's perspective unfortunately. It is impossible to train someone on what is a real weapon and a fake weapon. It's just impossible," Boontjer explained."

Disingenuous horse shit.  Far more complicated than that.  Without the body cam video, how do we know the murderous jackbooted thug isn't lying his ass off?  That in fact the kid never turned around and pointed the 'weapon' at the officer?  You bastards lie all the time to cover your sorry asses.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Boontjer said airsoft guns typically have an orange tip to indicate they're not real firearms.  However, he said, some people remove the orange tip, or it can be hard for an officer to see during a chase."

Without disclosure of the body cam video, all beside the point.  Why are you bastards sitting on the video?  If you've nothing to hide, immediately release the goddamned video.

"Let's say that the gun did have the orange tip on it. You're running, your vision is bouncing, you can't keep normal vision as you're running, and you're trying to, again, assess a hundred different pieces of information as you're running," Boontjer explained. "And when we train these officers for these lethal force situations, we can't teach them to look at something so microscopic as an orange dot that is bouncing around, that could be facing away from them as the suspect is running away."

More disingenuous bullshit.  Without the video, we don't know the jackbooted bastard is telling the truth.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Equally to the point, if the 'perpetrator' is indeed running away from the officer, not pointing his weapon at the cop, why would the goddamned jackbooted bastard open fire?  Become judge, jury, and executioner?

"Police said the officer told the teen to stop. "I would suspect that when this started to occur, the police officer said 'stop' or 'don't run' or something and unfortunately, if the suspect had stopped and followed the orders the officer gave that person, there would probably be a much different outcome," Boontjer said."

More disingenuous bullshit.  You're making excuses.  Protecting the jackbooted bastard.  Where's the goddamned video?  Without the video, we don't know you and your fellow jackbooted bastards aren't lying.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"An investigation was ongoing."

Means squat shit.  Just like right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Right, Sheriff?

CBS News reports:

"Relatives of a 14-year-old burglary suspect who was carrying a replica handgun when he was shot to death by a police officer don't believe the police's account of events. Jason Gonzalez, from the Phoenix suburb of Tempe, identified the slain boy as his brother Antonio Arce. Tempe police said they encountered the teen burglarizing a car Tuesday. During a subsequent chase, he turned toward officers, prompting one to perceive that as a threat and shoot. The teen died at a hospital. Police said Wednesday he had a replica 1911 airsoft gun in his possession, which they determined he took from the vehicle along with other items. "I didn't know him as someone who stole," Gonzalez told CBS affiliate KPHO-TV. "That's why I don't believe that." The name of the officer who opened fire hasn't been released. Gonzalez told KNXV-TV he wanted police to explain what happened."

Gutless law enforcement is apparently covering its ass.  No reason why the identity of the officer should not have been immediately released.  The public is entitled to know whom is killing whom and why.

"A police officer has a Taser gun right? Why not shoot a Taser at him?" he said. "He sees a young boy, my brother wouldn't shoot. I know he wouldn't shoot." Speaking through a Spanish-English interpreter, the teen's mother Sandra Gonzalez said: "If they want to tarnish my son, they are wrong." Police said the shooting was captured on the officer's body camera, the footage from which hasn't been released."

Why not?  No reason not to.  ... If, in fact, the officer was justified.

"About 100 people protested outside the Tempe Police headquarters Thursday night, according to KPHO-TV."

Precisely, why police should have quickly released information, -- including the identity of the victim, the identity of the officer, and body cam video.  Law enforcement has no credibility.  Lies all the time.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Until that changes, cannot be trusted.

ABC News reports:

"Police released body cam footage on Friday of a shooting from earlier in the week in which a 14-year-old was shot and killed while running away from a Tempe Police Department officer. The video shows the teen -- who ended up being armed with a replica airsoft gun instead of an actual gun -- with his back to the officer and at the far end of an alley when he's shot. The boy, Antonio Arce, was allegedly breaking into a car in the central Arizona city when a police officer responded to the scene Tuesday afternoon. The video shows the officer, identified by police as Joseph Jaen, walk into a dirt alley where the teen was inside a gray Chevy pickup. He pulls out his gun and hides behind a trash can before calling "hey" to Arce. The teen flees in the opposite direction of Jaen as he steps out from behind the trash bin. Jaen runs past the truck, sees Arce and shouts, "Let me see your hands!" The officer opens fire with two shots just seconds later. "One of those rounds struck the suspect in the scapula area," Tempe Police Chief Sylvia Moir said at a press conference where the footage was released."

Here's the problem:

"The video clearly shows the teen running away from the officer at a distance, an apparent contradiction to what Tempe Police Sgt. Ronald Elcock said Tuesday: "The suspect turned toward the officer, at which time the officer perceived a threat and fired his service weapon." Arce continued running after he struck, at which point Jaen radios dispatch and says, "He's got a handgun." Jaen reaches the end of the alley at which point the body cam released by the police department ends before showing Arce's body. Moir said the officer found the suspect "lying between the sidewalk and the street" and radio traffic from Jaen to dispatch reveals, "I'm not shot, the suspect is, and it looks like he's not breathing anymore." Officers began CPR and he was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead."

Never ends.  Legalized murder.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"If they want to tarnish my son, they are wrong," Sandra Gonzalez, Arce's mother, told Phoenix ABC affiliate KNXV through a translator on Wednesday. "Apart from the fact that they killed him, they want to destroy him. No, I won't allow it -- I want justice."

Likely won't get it.  Not in Nazi America.  De facto fascist police-state quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"The family had not seen the body camera footage at the time."

Why not?  Should have been the first to see it.  Who was more entitled?

"Jaen has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation into the shooting."

Paid vacation.  Ferociously pointedly, why wasn't he immediately identified?

"I just know he's doing better and he's in a better place now," his brother, 14-year-old Jason Gonzalez, told KNXV. "I mean the police officer has a Taser gun right? I mean, why not shoot a Taser at him? He sees a young boy. My brother wouldn't shoot, I know he wouldn't shoot."

Forget?  The jackbooted bastard in blue is a gutless coward.  How these bastards get their cookies off, right, Sheriff?

NBC News reports:

"A suburban Phoenix police chief on Friday called it "tragic" that an officer shot and killed a 14-year-old burglary suspect ahead of her department releasing video that showed the officer opening fire as the boy ran away. Tempe Police Chief Sylvia Moir said she called a news conference to be transparent and asked the public to withhold judgment until an investigation is complete."

Why are you dragging your feet?  Had it been the other way around and a cop had been killed, the perpetrator's ass would have been immediately arrested.  Even if the killing was self-defense.

"I must begin with expressing my condolences to the young man's family. The loss of his life is tragic," Moir said. "I am very sorry for their loss."

Not good enough.  Nowhere near.  Symbolism over substance.

"Police say the boy, identified by his family as Antonio Arce, was carrying a replica handgun when he was shot Tuesday by an officer identified only as Officer Jaen. In interviews and a vigil this week, family members called for justice. The chief said Jaen has been an officer for 17 years — 14 of them with Tempe. He was placed on administrative leave. Jaen had completed one combat tour in Iraq for the Army National Guard. Video from the officer's body-worn camera shows Jaen arriving in a car and parking in an alley at a reported burglary. He sees the suspect in a gray pickup truck facing his squad car and crouches behind a big, black plastic trash barrel. "Hey," Jaen says and raises his handgun as the suspect gets out of the passenger side of the truck and starts running down the alley lined with wooden fence, chain link and concrete block. "Let me see your hands," Jaen yells and fires two shots as the suspect runs away. "Shot fired, shot fired," the officer yells as he chases the teen through the alley. "He's got a handgun, he's got a handgun," Jaen shouts later. The video does not show the suspect again after he disappears from view. It is impossible to tell if the suspect is carrying a handgun in the fast-moving video, but he does seem to be holding something in his hand in a zoomed-in still photo that the department took from the video and showed at the news conference. Moir said one of the two shots hit the teen in the rear shoulder blade area and the other hit a wall. She said two independent witnesses reported seeing the suspect running through the alley with a firearm in his hand, and a replica gun was found on him. Police said the replica gun was taken from the vehicle with other items. Arce later died at a hospital. His Facebook page shows photographs of a baby-faced boy with a peach-fuzz mustache and a few images with relatives and friends. Friends of the family were putting together a GoFundMe page to pay for the teen's funeral costs."

The police department needs to wind up paying for the funeral if the facts of the case turn out to be as reported.

"A vigil was held Thursday outside the Tempe police headquarters. The department said it will conduct its investigation in conjunction with prosecutors, which is customary in officer-involved shootings."

No comfort.  No comfort at all.  Forget?  Prosecutors are usually in bed with officers.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Precisely, why there is desperate need for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate corrupt, abusive, murderous police, prosecutors, and judges.  Arrest, charge, and try these pieces of human excrement in a special court whose sole function would be to adjudicate these cases.  Total independence.  Would put an end to quite a bit of the goddamned bullshit going on in Nazi Llano County.  ... Right, Sheriff?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

No justice.  'Judge' clearly in pocket of the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  NPR reports:

"Three Chicago cops were found not guilty of attempting to cover up the fatal police shooting of Laquan McDonald."

Nazi justice.  In a de facto fascist police-state, -- quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Handing down her decision Thursday afternoon, Cook County Judge Domenica Stephenson attacked the prosecution's case, including its heavy reliance on police reports and an infamous dashcam recording that showed convicted Chicago Police Officer Jason Van Dyke shoot 17-year-old McDonald 16 times on Oct. 20, 2014. Officer Thomas Gaffney, former Officer Joseph Walsh, and former Detective David March were each found not guilty of obstruction of justice, official misconduct, and conspiracy."

Kangaroo justice. Nazi America.

"In a lengthy statement, Stephenson said it was reasonable to believe an attack was imminent and the shooting should not be viewed in hindsight. "It is not as simple as looking at the reports and comparing them to what was on the video," Stephenson said. The dashcam video showed McDonald walking away from Officer Jason Van Dyke just before the shooting. The recording sparked political upheaval and was later used to convict Van Dyke of second-degree murder and aggravated battery. Van Dyke is scheduled to be sentenced Friday. Beyond the video, Stephenson attacked the credibility of state witnesses and their heavy reliance on police reports. Notably, she called the testimony of Officer Dora Fontaine, a key state witness, "not credible." She also criticized state witness Jose Torres for not immediately telling police he witnessed the shooting."

Any excuse at all to protect these criminal jackbooted savages.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Prosecutors had claimed the police reports filed by March, Gaffney, and Walsh were part of a conspiracy to cover up for Van Dyke."

The hopelessly biased 'judge' wouldn't, couldn't be confused by the truth.  Determinedly protected and coddled these jackbooted criminals in uniform.

"Gaffney, Walsh, and March all waived their right to a jury trial and instead chose to have Cook County Judge Domenica Stephenson decide their fate. The trial closed Dec. 6 with none of the men taking the stand and their lawyers calling only one witness."

Did so because they knew this goddamned 'judge' would  protect and coddle these jackbooted pieces of human excrement.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Police reform advocates hoped Stephenson's decision will send a message that the so-called police code of silence will no longer be tolerated."

Not in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  No justice.  Raw nazism.  ... Right, Sheriff?  ... Hear the rumble?  An unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming.

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

No justice.  NPR reports:

"Former Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke was sentenced on Friday to six years and nine months in prison for the murder of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald — an event that he called the worst day of his life."

Jesus Christ.  No f--king justice in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  In most states, kill a cop even in self-defense, guess what?  Get executed.  No equal justice, however, when a criminal jackbooted bastard in blue murders on the job.  ... Right, Bill?

"The shooting was captured on an infamous police dashcam video that showed McDonald, who was carrying a knife with a 3-inch blade, walking away from Van Dyke just before the officer shot him 16 times on Oct. 20, 2014. The release of the video sparked protests and political upheaval in the city."

A jackbooted bastard in blue does not get to be judge, jury, and executioner in a supposedly democratic republic.  All bets off in Nazi America, however.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Last fall, a jury convicted Van Dyke of second-degree murder and 16 counts of aggravated battery, which gave Cook County Judge Vincent Gaughan the option to sentence the former officer to anything from probation to decades in prison."

So what did he do?  Took good care of the criminal son of a bitch.  Gave the jackbooted murderer in blue a break.

"Van Dyke, 40, is the first Chicago police officer in decades convicted of murder for an on-duty shooting. The jury decided not to convict him for first-degree murder, which has a minimum sentence of 20 years in prison."

Two standards of justice.  One for the jackbooted bastards in blue.  Another for the rest of us.  ... Right, Sheriff?  A goddamned de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.

"Just before sentencing, Van Dyke quietly read a prepared statement: "I pray daily for the soul of Laquan McDonald ... (and) as a God fearing man, and father, I'll have to live with this for the rest of my life and take it to my grave."

Lying piece of shit.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Lied like hell to ensure the 'judge' would give him a break.  Certainly, worked.  ... Didn't it, Bill?

"The veteran judge, who has handled high-profile cases like the trial of R. Kelly, called the shooting "a tragedy on both sides." But in the end, he decided the 16 shots were all "one act" and that Van Dyke should only be sentenced on the second-degree murder charge, which carried a punishment of probation to 20 years in prison."

This goddamned 'judge' is full of shit.  Protected one of his own.  A piece of shit that pumped 16 rounds into a black man, -- who was walking away from him.  In the world of the nazi element, day is night, night is day, and shit smells perversely sweet.  All ass backwards.  Devoid of sanity, detached from reality.

"Additionally, second-degree murder allows defendants to be released after serving as little as 50 percent of the sentence. That means Van Dyke could be out of prison at age 43."

While his victim remains dead a whole lot longer.  Nazi justice.  Anything to protect and coddle the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Prosecutors had asked that Van Dyke be sentenced from 18 to 20 years in prison for the aggravated battery convictions, which would have required he serve at least 85 percent of the term. Despite the judge handing down a significantly shorter sentence, Special Prosecutor Joseph McMahon said he was "satisfied" with the outcome. "We achieved our goal of holding Jason Van Dyke accountable for his actions the night he shot and killed Laquan McDonald," McMahon said outside the courtroom."

The hell you did.  With that attitude on the part of the prosecutor, come as any surprise the 'judge' took good care of this murderous ex-cop?

"Activist William Calloway, who worked with independent journalists to help get the dashcam video released, called the ruling "a slap in the face."

Worse than that, no justice at all.  ... Blatant effort on the part of the 'judge' to give the murderer as much of a break as possible while keeping public anger in response to a minimum.  Nazi justice.

"We don't agree with the judge's ruling at all," Calloway said. "We feel that what Jason Van Dyke did in shooting Laquan McDonald 16 times, that he deserves to spend the rest of his life behind bars ... 81 months in the Illinois Department of Corrections is a slap in the face to us and a slap on the wrist to him."

That's exactly what it is.  Kangaroo justice.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Encouraging for you and the boys, isn't it, Bill?  Anything goes.

"Van Dyke's lawyers had argued the former officer should be sentenced only to probation for second-degree murder, which is the minimum punishment allowed in Illinois. They noted that Van Dyke has no criminal history and had filed dozens of letters of support from his family and friends."

They supported a murderer in uniform who pumped 16 rounds into a man who was walking away from him.  Pumped round after round into him even when the man was on the ground.  Jackbooted piece of shit in blue.

"My biggest fear is that someone will kill my husband for something he did as a police officer. Something he was trained to do. There was no malice, no hatred on that night. It was simply a man doing his job."

Doing his job?  Madam?  That psychotic are you?  Your husband pumped 16 rounds into a man who was walking away from him.  No problem with that?

"Van Dyke's wife of 17 years, Tiffany, described how the family has had financial trouble and temporarily lost health insurance. She said her children are bullied, don't eat, don't sleep and have nightmares. To speak to their father, the family spends hundreds of dollars a week on phone calls to the jail."

Tough shit.

"My biggest fear is that someone will kill my husband for something he did as a police officer," she said through tears. "Something he was trained to do. There was no malice, no hatred on that night. It was simply a man doing his job."

That right? Think so?  Pumping 16 rounds into a man walking away from him acceptable police procedure?  What planet do you live on, Madam?  Wake up.

"My other fear is that I'll never see him again. My children will never see him again. He won't see graduation, proms, weddings, grandkids."

Not to worry.  Won't be imprisoned all that long.  Will certainly protect the jackbooted thug.  Forget?  He's one of their own.

CBS News reports:

"Explosive video of a white Chicago officer shooting a black teenager 16 times in 2014 shocked consciences around the world. Graphic images of Laquan McDonald crumpling to the street while bullets kept striking him stirred expectations that the officer might be convicted in the killing and pay a heavy price in prison time."

Not in Nazi America.  A goddamned de facto fascist police-state since 9/11, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.

"But on Friday, a sentence of less than seven years for Jason Van Dyke -- and the possibility that he may serve only half of that -- led McDonald's family and at least one activist to question whether justice had been done and the right message sent to other officers."

Sends the message the jackbooted bastards can murder on the job with virtual impunity.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Yet, kill a cop in self-defense, guess what?  Get executed.  Nazi America.

"McDonald's family lamented that the penalty was too light. His great uncle, the Rev. Marvin Hunter, said the sentence reduced McDonald's life to that of "a second-class citizen" and "suggests to us that there are no laws on the books for a black man that a white man is bound to honor."

Certainly, says that, but far, far more.  Not only are blacks second class citizens in the eyes of law enforcement, so are the rest of us.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Precisely, how you jackbooted bastards in law enforcement want it to remain.  ... Right, Bill?

"William Calloway, who was instrumental in the legal battle that led to the release of the dashcam video in 2015, described the penalty as "a slap in the face to us and a slap on the wrist" for Van Dyke, who was convicted of second-degree murder and 16 counts of aggravated battery -- one for each bullet fired at the 17-year-old McDonald."

Nazi justice.

"The sentence was less than half of the penalty that had been sought by prosecutors, who asked for 18 to 20 years. But it went far beyond the request of defense attorneys, who argued that Van Dyke could be released on probation. The prison term also was a fraction of what Van Dyke could have faced had he been convicted of first-degree murder, which carried a mandatory minimum of 45 years in prison."

Why aren't these jackbooted savages in blue subject to capital murder statutes like the rest of us?  Why aren't we all equal under the law?

"The lead defense attorney, Dan Herbert, said Van Dyke "truly felt great" after learning his sentence. "He was happy about the prospect of life ahead of him" and someday being reunited with his wife and two daughters."

This goddamned murderer in blue deserved to have been convicted of capital murder, sentenced to death.  Just like the rest of us under similar and/or identical circumstances.  Equal justice.  No special treatment.

"In a brief statement, Van Dyke acknowledged the teen's death, telling the judge that "as a God-fearing man and father, I will have to live with this the rest of my life."

Lying piece of shit.  Had he truly thought otherwise, would not have pumped 16 rounds into his victim to make sure he was dead.

Insult to injury?  Get this:

"On Friday, Judge Vincent Gaughan called the case a "tragedy for both sides."

This goddamned 'judge' has his head figuratively lodged so far up his clueless ass his eyeballs are turning inside out.  Unadulterated, blatant ongoing horse shit.  ... Right, Bill?  F--k these jackbooted bastards.  Aren't worth a crap.  Continually abrogate their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Includes not only deputies, but the brass as well.  No principles.  No honor.  Lying, conniving, abusive, murderous jackbooted thieving thugs.  The American Civil Liberties Union needs to step up and represent the victims of abusive law enforcement.

To say nothing of innocent civilians all across our formerly great country who are victimized by abusive police.  Need far better representation than a public defender.  Forget?  It's how the bastards in government line government coffers.  All too often, looting the innocent.  Those on the bottom of the food chain.  ... Right, Sheriff?

No justice.  The American Way.  Nazi America.  When is this shit finally going to end?  All of it.  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty four weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.

Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.  Who the hell are they?

When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff?  Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up. Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for?

Ferociously pointedly, why are the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?"

Another out of control jackbooted bastard.  CNN reports:

"Nashville Police Officer Andrew Delke has been indicted on a charge of first degree murder, prosecutors said, after a video showed him shooting a man in the back as he ran away."

Gutless piece of human excrement, right, Sheriff?

"Delke, 25, is accused of killing 25-year-old Daniel Hambrick last July in North Nashville. He had been initially charged with criminal homicide, which includes murder, voluntary manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide under Tennessee law. The Nashville-Davidson County District Attorney's Office announced the indictment Friday in a case that has sparked outrage among residents and the creation of a police accountability board. Delke was charged after authorities released surveillance footage that showed Delke, who is white, chasing Hambrick, who is black, until the officer aims his gun. Hambrick falls to the ground within seconds. The officer has argued that he saw Hambrick holding a gun and asked him to drop it as both men were running, a warrant states, adding that Delke said Hambrick did not drop his weapon. Authorities said they recovered a handgun from the scene."

Is the jackbooted bastard in blue arguing it granted him carte blanche to open fire despite no direct threat?

"Delke's attorney, David Louis Raybin, said his client plans to plead not guilty. "Officer Andrew Delke will continue to defend himself on the basis that he acted in accordance with his training and Tennessee law in response to an armed suspect who ignored repeated orders to drop his gun," Raybin said. "

You jackbooted bastards arguing this grants you carte blanche to open fire?  If so, you're gutless pieces of shit.  Not fit to wear a badge, uniform, brandish a weapon.

"While no citizen looks forward to a trial on allegations such as this, Officer Delke and his defense team will trust in the jury system," Raybin said."

Jesus Christ.  Any jury in its right mind confronted with the circumstances you assert would convict his sorry ass of murder in a heartbeat.

"Delke, who is on administrative assignment while the criminal case is pending, is expected to be arraigned later this month, a district attorney's office spokesman said."

Inexplicably gutless.  Get this:

"Delke decided to fire when Hambrick kept running and didn't drop the gun, the warrant states. The officer fired four times, the warrant says. Hambrick was struck in the back of the head, the back and the left torso, with a fourth bullet hitting a nearby building."

Legalized murder should this stand.  Forget?  In a democratic republic, the jackbooted bastards in blue don't get to be judge, jury, and executioner.  ... Right, Sheriff?

Think the Border Patrol doesn't have problems?  NPR reports:

"Juan David Ortiz, a U.S. Border Patrol Agent pleaded not guilty Thursday to capital murder in the deaths of four women, The Associated Press reports. His "killing spree" might have continued, prosecutors say, had they not caught a "lucky break" when a fifth kidnapped woman escaped and contacted authorities."

Perversely, this piece of human excrement delusionally believed he was a crusader.

"Ortiz thought it was his duty to clean up the streets of Laredo, a border town in Southwest Texas. So he began picking up alleged sex workers, driving them to remote areas, and then shooting them in the head, prosecutors say."

Imagine that.  Didn't they properly vett this son of a bitch prior to hire?

"He deemed them to be the scum of the earth, and he wanted to move forward and clean the streets of these types of people," Webb County District Attorney Isidro Alaniz said at a press conference last month announcing the charges. Ortiz thought law enforcement wasn't doing enough to stop prostitution in Laredo, so he believed he was "doing a service" by killing the women, Ortiz said. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty, because Ortiz's "vigilante mentality" presents a "future danger to society." Authorities say he confessed to the killings, NPR has reported."

Make the job of prosecutors easier?

"Ortiz's not-guilty plea came on the same day President Trump visited the border town of McAllen, Texas, a few hours south of Laredo. Trump, who visited a Border Patrol station and held a roundtable discussion with local officials, was there to make his case for a wall, NPR reported. While on the border, Trump criticized the media for not sufficiently covering crime and violence by undocumented immigrants, NPR's Wade Goodwyn reported. During the roundtable meeting, Trump met with family members of officers killed by undocumented immigrants."

Should have met with the families of the women this piece of shit murdered.

"Ortiz, who worked as a Border Patrol supervisor by day, was off-duty and driving his own personal truck when the attacks took place, NPR has reported. "As law enforcement was looking for the killer ... he would be reporting to work every day like normal." The women murdered are Melissa Ramirez, Guiselda Alicia Cantu, Claudine Luera and Humberto "Janelle" Ortiz, the Laredo Morning Times reported."

Think there isn't a determined deficit of professionalism in policing?  ABC News reports:

"An Atlanta police officer has been indicted on charges including reckless driving in a wreck that caused another driver to lose an arm. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Wednesday that 27-year-old Officer Dejoira Phillips has been indicted by a Fulton County grand jury in the 2018 wreck that wounded 52-year-old Lisa Williams. Georgia State police say Phillips was responding to a 911 call that February and drove through a red light at intersection, crashing into Williams, who had a green light. Police say a building obscured the view of both drivers, who crashed into each other. Both cars were totaled and the drivers were hospitalized.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

More of the same.  CBS News reports:

"Five Fort Worth police officers have been fired and two others have been suspended after a suspect's pleas for medical help while in custody went unheeded, leading to the man's death. A police statement Tuesday says the officers answering the report of a prowler on July 26 arrested an armed man said to have been trying to break into a house. The 55-year-old man began to complain about medical issues, but the officers kept him handcuffed in the back seat of a patrol car without medical aid as they continued to investigate the scene. Only when he was later found unresponsive did the officers summon an ambulance, and the man was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. The medical examiner concluded the man died of cocaine intoxication."

Law enforcement clearly does not get to be judge, jury, and executioner, -- so to speak.

"The investigation found "multiple violations of departmental policy," including failure to protect the rights of persons in police custody, reports CBS DFW. The department gave a preliminary update to the Tarrant County District Attorney's office and the case is pending a grand jury review, the station reports. "The actions taken by the officers involved in this incident discovered during our investigation are not in accordance with the values of the Fort Worth Police Department or the standards that the citizens of Fort Worth have for their police department," the department said in a statement. "We hope that the administrative conclusion of this case is an assurance to the residents of Fort Worth that we are able to identify and properly address any issues that may arise during police incidents."

"In addition to the five officers that were fired, a sixth was suspended for 90 days without pay and a seventh was suspended without pay for five days."

ABC News reports:

"A Texas police department terminated five officers and suspended two others, without pay, on Tuesday after a suspect died while in custody. Internal investigators with the Fort Worth Police Department said the officers violated multiple policies last year when they arrested 55-year-old Christopher Lowe, who died in the officers' care after complaining of medical issues, officials said Tuesday. Lowe, arrested on suspicion of burglary, complained about feeling ill while in handcuffs on July 26, 2018, "but no medical aid was summoned," according to the Fort Worth Police Department. Lowe was found unresponsive in the back of a patrol car and taken to local hospital, where he died. Department officials identified the terminated officers as T. Stephens, D. Pritzker, C. Golden, H. Fellhauer and M. Miller. The suspended officers, S. Smith and A. Scharf, were suspended 90 days and five days, respectively. "Any time there is a loss of life during any police contact we ensure that a thorough and fair investigation is conducted," the department said in a statement. "The sanctity of life is the most important principle to the Fort Worth Police Department at all times." Investigators with the Fort Worth Police Department's Major Case and Internal Affairs units said they found "multiple violations of departmental policy, including failure to protect the rights of persons in police custody," but they did not specify the officers' suspected roles in the man's death. "The actions taken by the officers involved in this incident discovered during our investigation are not in accordance with the values of the Fort Worth Police Department or the standards that the citizens of Fort Worth have for their police department," the department said."

The following is particularly stunning, most unusual:

"It said a preliminary update was given to the Tarrant County District Attorney's Office. Pastors Kyev Tatum and Kenneth Jones Jr., who serve on the Fort Worth Police Chief's Policy Advisory Committee, said the decision showed the department's willingness to hold itself accountable. "We're not in any way, shape or form being jubilant over officers getting fired," Tatum told ABC affiliate WFAA on Tuesday. "We know there's a criminal justice process that has to be dealt with, and it's our belief that the district attorney has a legal and moral obligation to send these cases before the grand jury." "And we believe there's enough evidence that these gentlemen should be indicted and should have to face a jury of their peers, and that's not something to revel in," he added. Both pastors said the department's review and ongoing transparency showed that the situation was taken seriously. "I think we've always been quick to be negative concerning our police department's lack of transparency when they have not done it right," Jones told WFAA. "All police departments make mistakes. What we want you to do is own up to those mistakes, be transparent about the mistakes and do the right thing."

About time.

The following is appalling.  Hard to believe anyone would do this to an officer.  CBS News reports:

"A uniformed Louisiana police officer was fatally shot as she was preparing to go to work on the night shift. Police in Shreveport say it happened shortly before 8:30 p.m. Wednesday outside a home. Shreveport substitute police chief Ben Raymond said officers responded to a 911 call from the home reporting a woman had been shot. They found fellow officer Chateri Payne shot multiple times, gravely wounded and "fighting for her life," Raymond said."

Inexplicable, senseless murder of an officer just starting her career.

"Payne was transported to the hospital, where she died several hours later. The rookie officer had just graduated from the police academy in November, Raymond said."

A dangerous world filled with lunatics.

"Long Days. Aching Nights. But I decided to stand tall on my dream. Main lesson taught was to never lose sight of who you...
  Posted by Chatéri Payne on Friday, November 16, 2018"

Awful day for the rule of law.

"Every life is precious, and the taking of any human life is unacceptable," Raymond said. "But when a servant who has taken an oath and committed their life to protecting others is violently taken from us, we all collectively feel the pain of that loss." Raymond said his department is investigating, but they have "many more questions than answers." Police haven't yet determined a suspect or motive. Raymond said a witness in the home was questioned, but no one is currently in custody. A child was in the home at the time of the shooting, but Raymond couldn't say what, if anything the child witnessed."

The following is stunning:

"Payne leaves behind a young child, reports CBS affiliate KSLA. Raymond didn't say whether the child in the home was Payne's or whether the slain officer lived at the home where she was killed. Raymond also couldn't say whether the shooting may have involved a domestic dispute. He said the department is in the early stages of the investigation and "not willing to rule out anything." "We're going to follow every lead and work to identify and apprehend the coward or cowards responsible for the brutal murder of Officer Payne," Raymond said."

Get it right.

"The Shreveport Times reports Payne was a 2014 graduate of Captain Shreve High School, where she ran track. Raymond described Payne as professional, fit, and intelligent. He said he had personally handed the woman her diploma when she graduated from the police academy Nov. 16, and saw "excitement in her eyes" as she joined the department's ranks. Payne was well liked among her police academy classmates, he said, many of whom gathered at the hospital overnight and have been deeply affected by her loss."

Terrible societal loss as well.

"The Shreveport Police Officer's Association lamented the officer's death in a statement. "We have lost one of our own," the statement said. "She was young, and she was beautiful. She was proving herself to be a capable professional, dedicated to serving the citizens of Shreveport."

She was the future of policing.

"Tributes to the young officer quickly filled her Facebook page, where she had posted on the day of her police academy graduation — less than two months before her death — about her excitement to become a police officer. "My personal mission is to become that positive influence. To protect those who can't protect themselves & to at least try to push someone to being a better version of themselves!" Payne wrote. "I've never claimed to be perfect, but I am taking this step and becoming a better version of myself by knowing that it is always something bigger than MYSELF. It is an honor to be able to join such a powerful family with my Brothers and Sisters in Blue. May the journey begin."

CNN reports:

"In Shreveport, Louisiana, newly hired Officer Chatéri Payne was in uniform and getting ready for work when she was gunned down Wednesday night, police said. No one has been arrested in the shooting, and it is not known what led to the killing, police said. Payne was hired in July as an academy cadet and graduated in November. "We have lost one of our own. She was young, and she was beautiful. She was proving herself to be a capable professional, dedicated to serving the Citizens of Shreveport," the Shreveport Police Officers Association said."

CNN reports:

"In Birmingham, Alabama, Sgt. Wytasha Carter was fatally shot early Sunday while investigating a call about vehicle burglaries, police said. He and another officer had encountered two suspects when one of them pulled out a weapon and fired. The officers and one of the suspects were shot. A second suspect was taken into custody. The 44-year-old Carter later died of his injuries, police said. The second officer is in critical condition. Carter had been with the Birmingham Police Department since 2011 and had been promoted to sergeant in February 2018, police said. He started his law enforcement career in 2002 as a correctional officer with the Shelby County Sheriff's Office and served as an officer for the Leeds and Fairfield police departments before transferring to Birmingham, the police department said. He is survived by his wife and two children."

Terrible, needless loss of an officer.  Hopefully, the other officer will survive his injuries.

The following is equally appalling to the above.  We live in a country that's clearly gone nuts.  Has lost itself.  NBC News reports:

"A young California police officer was shot to death while responding to a traffic accident and her killer was found dead from a self-inflicted wound hours later, authorities said Friday. Natalie Corona, 22, had only been on the job for a few weeks in Davis, California, when she was called to a three-car crash at 6:45 p.m PT (9:45 p.m. ET) on Thursday, police said. Corona was the first officer to arrive at the scene when she was shot, officials said. She was rushed to UC Davis Medical Center in nearby Sacramento, where she died. Police later surrounded a house one block away from the shooting scene where they found the suspect, who had killed himself, authorities said. It wasn't immediately clear if the shooter was in the traffic accident or what the motive was. "She responded to a traffic collision and it was there that a person walked up and shots were fired," Davis Police Chief Darren Pytel said."

Jesus Christ.  World's insane.

"Corona started working for the Davis Police Department in 2016 in community services, eventually going to the academy and graduating this past July, officials said. She completed her training just before Christmas and became a full-time officer. "I can tell you that I haven't seen anyone work harder in a part-time capacity and be more motivated to be police officer than Natalie," Pytel said. "She's just an absolute star in the department — and somebody that pretty much every department member really looked to as, you know, a close friend, a sister. I've heard our officers describe her tonight as our daughter, our friend, and just the sister that we all wanted."

This young woman was the future of policing.  So was the young officer in the above article.  Both, certainly, would have continued to have been a force for desperately needed change.  Horrific loss to law enforcement.

"Corona's dad was a 26-year veteran of the nearby Colusa County Sheriff's Department. Proud father Merced Corona pinned a badge on his daughter at academy graduation, the Williams Pioneer Review newspaper reported. "Our hearts are broken over this tragic and senseless loss," the Colusa County Sheriff's Department said in a statement on Friday. "Your family at the Colusa County Sheriff's Office stand with you in this difficult time." Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered flags in the capitol, in nearby Sacramento, lowered to half-staff. “Jennifer and I are terribly saddened to learn of the death of Officer Corona," he said in a statement on behalf of him and wife Jennifer Siebel. "We join all Californians in mourning the loss of this courageous officer and extend our deepest condolences to Officer Corona’s family, friends, and coworkers.” The slain officer is survived by her dad, mom Lupe Corona and sister Jackie Corona, the governor said. Corona is the first Davis police officer killed in the line of duty since 1959, the department said. The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department will take over the investigation, Pytel announced."

CBS News reports:

"The man who shot and killed a rookie California police officer left a letter on the bed in the home where he lived claiming police bombarded him with ultrasonic waves, officials said. Police in the college town of Davis near Sacramento on Saturday made public the one-paragraph letter they said was written by Kevin Douglas Limbaugh, 48. He killed himself Thursday after fatally shooting Officer Natalie Corona. Police spokesman Lt. Paul Doroshov said the paper was found face up on the gunman's bed. "The Davis Police department has been hitting me with ultra sonic (sic) waves meant to keep dogs from barking," the letter said. "I notified the press, internal affairs, and even the FBI about it. I am highly sensitive to its affect (sic) on my inner ear. I did my best to appease them, but they have continued for years and I can't live this way anymore." The handwritten note was signed "Citizen Kevin Limbaugh." Also recovered as evidence from the man's home were two unregistered guns.

"Davis Police Department officials said 22-year-old Officer Natalie Corona was shot after responding to a three-car traffic accident at about 6:45 p.m.  Davis police did not immediately respond Sunday to a telephone message seeking comment on whether Limbaugh had reported his claims to officials. Investigators have not identified a motive for the ambush shooting of the 22-year-old officer as she investigated a car accident. The Sacramento Bee reported that court documents show Limbaugh was charged and convicted in a battery case last fall, and he agreed in November to surrender the weapon. The case stemmed from Limbaugh getting arrested in September for assaulting someone at Cache Creek Casino, Yolo County Sheriff's Sgt. Matthew Davis said. Authorities have not determined where Limbaugh obtained the two semi-automatic handguns he was believed to have used in the Thursday night attack that killed Corona. Police said a gunman on a bicycle ambushed the officer, shooting her from the shadows as she investigated a car accident, then reloaded and narrowly avoided wounding others before walking home. At his house a few blocks away, he casually chatted with his roommate as if nothing happened and even went outside to watch as police from around the region began rushing to the shooting scene, Davis Police Chief Darren Pytel said Friday."

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

More of the same. No justice.  NBC News reports:

"Prosecutors are recommending that the former Chicago police officer convicted in the 2014 shooting death of black teenager Laquan McDonald be sentenced to at least 18 years in prison and a defense attorney is urging the judge allow the officer to be released on probation."

Not good enough.  Nowhere near.  Kill an officer even in self-defense, guess what?  Get executed in most states.  Why doesn't the same apply to an officer who murders on the job?  Why no equal justice?

"In documents filed this week in anticipation of Friday's sentencing of Jason Van Dyke, the arguments display widely divergent interpretations of the state's complex sentencing formula, a reflection of the struggle that legal experts have had in trying to determine the sentence the white ex-officer might be facing since a jury found him guilty of second-degree murder in October. The jurors also convicted the 40-year-old Van Dyke of 16 counts of aggravated battery with a firearm — one for each shot that hit the 17-year-old McDonald. They opted for a conviction of second-degree murder rather the first-degree murder, which had been available to them. A first-degree murder conviction would have carried a maximum sentence of life and — factoring in enhancements for having used a gun — a mandatory minimum of 45 years in prison. The punishment for second-degree murder is no less than four years behind bars but no more than 20 years. Each count of aggravated battery carries a mandatory minimum of six years in prison and a maximum of 30 years. If Van Dyke had to serve six years for each of the 16 counts — and do so one sentence after another — that would add up to 96 years."

No question, this piece of human excrement needs to at the very least spend the rest of his life in a cage.

"In his brief filed Monday, Special Prosecutor Joseph McMahon argues that Cook County Judge Vincent Gaughan could potentially sentence Van Dyke to 96 years if he finds that all 16 bullets that struck McDonald on the night of Oct. 20, 2014, caused "serious bodily injury." But the prosecutor says that even if he agrees with the defense that "at least two of the shots fired by the defendant were fatal," the minimum sentence should be 18 years. "Any count for which this Court makes a finding of severe bodily injury is subject to a mandatory consecutive sentence," wrote McMahon, meaning that if Gaughan determines six shots severely injured McDonald then those minimum six-year sentences must be served back to back. Defense attorney Dan Herbert argues that if the judge sentences Van Dyke, who has been in custody since his conviction, on the second-degree murder charge then he should put Van Dyke on probation. But, Herbert said, that if he chooses to sentence the former officer for aggravated battery then he should impose the minimum sentence. Herbert doesn't say in his filings what that sentence is, but the minimum sentence for that charge is six years in prison."

Amazing how easily excuses are made for an officer who murders on the job, isn't it?

"FROM OCT. 5, 2018: Chicago Police officer charged with killing teenager
Oct. 5, 201809:13Herbert's nearly 300 pages of filings mostly focus on the feelings of Van Dyke's family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. The more than 100 letters that the defense submitted in the filings included ones written by Van Dyke's two young daughters, and his wife, Tiffany. One daughter wrote that on the day of the verdict "my heart ripped out of my chest." "I have no appetite, I do not sleep at night due to nightmares and crying because I wonder if my dad has pillows or blankets or has eaten before going to bed," she added. "If I do sleep, it is because I cry myself to sleep, wondering why this world is backwards." She expressed condolences to the McDonald family, but added: "Bring my dad home. Please." Tiffany Van Dyke, in her letter, told the judge her husband was "convicted by the court of public opinion a long time ago, way before the trial."

That's a crock of shit.  Your husband committed murder.  Wake up.

"Herbert also noted Van Dyke had no criminal record prior to his conviction at trial and wasn't likely to commit any such offense again. The defense documents argue that other factors that make leniency the best option include Van Dyke's belief that he was acting in self-defense."

Crock of shit.  Simply, untrue.

"At trial, Herbert repeatedly tried to pin much of the blame on McDonald, a strategy that fell flat on the jury. In the filings, he made some of the same arguments. "Although the jury decided Jason acted unreasonably, Mr. McDonald is not blameless in the incident," he said in the filings, adding that McDonald was on a "PCP-fueled crime spree" that included the slashing of a patrol car's tire."

Here's the bottom line.  Precisely, why this piece of shit should never ever again be free:

"Prosecutors displayed dashcam video at trial that showed Van Dyke opening fire as McDonald walks away holding a folded knife. The teen crumples to the ground after the first shot or two, barely moving. But the officer continues shooting more than a dozen shots into his body for another roughly 10 seconds."

Unadulterated, blatant horse shit.  ... Right, Bill?  F--k this jackbooted bastard.  Isn't worth a crap.  Neither are others just like him.  Continually abrogate their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Includes not only deputies, but the brass as well.  No principles.  No honor.  Lying, conniving, abusive, murderous jackbooted thieving thugs.  The American Civil Liberties Union needs to step up and represent the victims of abusive law enforcement.  Do so vigorously.

To say nothing of innocent civilians all across our formerly great country who are victimized by abusive police.  Need far better representation than a public defender.  Forget?  It's how the bastards in government line government coffers.  All too often, looting the innocent.  Those on the bottom of the food chain.  ... Right, Sheriff?

No justice.  The American Way.  Nazi America.  When is this shit finally going to end?  All of it.  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty three weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.

Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.  Who the hell are they?

When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff?  Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up. Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for?

Ferociously pointedly, why are the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Think a kid incapable of uncommon valor?  Think again.  CNN News reports:

"When Advaik Nandikotkur's mother urged him to jump into the deep end of a swimming pool to save a man who was drowning, he had some hesitation. Advaik is 11 years old and weighs all of 80 pounds. "He's probably too heavy for me," Advaik told his mom. The 34-year-old man had sunk to the bottom of an indoor pool at their apartment complex in suburban St. Paul, Minnesota. He was in the deep end, about eight feet down, floating with his hands stretched out and his mouth and eyes wide open. Advaik's mother, Lalitha Mareddy, said there were at least nine men around the pool. But when she yelled for help, no one responded. They didn't know how to swim. Advaik's father, Raghu Nandikotkur, tried to save the man by jumping in with a floating tube, but "It was pushing me up and I was unable to grab him," he said. Then Advaik jumped in."

No one better qualified.  Here's why:

"In the split second before Mareddy asked her son to help, she remembered a drill from his swim class. "I saw him go to the bottom of the pool and collect rings and come up. That just flashed in my mind," she said. "If he can go get three things while controlling his breath ..." The fifth-grader swam down, grabbed the man's wrist and pulled him to the surface. "Advaik understood the situation," his mother said. "There was an emergency."

Rose to the occasion.  An 11-year-old kid.

"On the surface of the pool, Advaik's father helped grab the man and steer him to the edge of the pool. Neighbors helped pull him from the pool, where Advaik's uncle, Suseel Kumar Nandikotkur, jumped into action. Although he'd never taken a CPR class, Nandikotkur started pushing down on the unconscious man's chest and breathing into his mouth. "It's based on my experience watching it in movies and in my school days," the uncle said."

Should be part of the curriculum in every school.

"After about three minutes, the man began move his eyes, then his hands. By that time, paramedics had arrived to give him oxygen and take him to a hospital. Police told CNN he's made a full recovery. "I've never heard of a boy jumping in and saving an adult from a pool," said Eagan, Minnesota, Police Officer Aaron Machtemes. "Officers on the scene commented the man was very lucky to be alive."

Had that kid not risen to the occasion, he would not have been.

"Advaik said he felt relieved that despite his youth he was able to help. "I just had that hope in me," he said. The next day, the grateful man from the pool visited the Nandikotkur family to thank them. Local television crews were there to record the meeting.  "He said thank you, and then I went to another room because I'm not really interested in that grown-up talk," said Advaik. The man gave him a $50 Macy's gift card, but Advaik said that didn't matter so much to him. What matters, he said, is that the man is alive. "If someone didn't save him, he could've died or gotten badly injured," said the 11-year-old. "It would be hard for his family to get through." Advaik is back at school this week and getting a lot of attention since he's all over the local news -- something the shy boy doesn't like so much. Eagan Police also have nominated Advaik for the department's "Life Saving Award."

To the chagrin of the current administration, this family emigrated from overseas.

"His mom and dad say they are very proud of their son -- and glad they gave him swimming lessons. "That was always in our mind, that we should give him some swimming lessons, some survival skills for his own sake," said Raghu Nandikotkur, who arrived in the US from southern India with his family three years ago. The father said he, too, plans now on taking swimming lessons -- although his son is skeptical. Advaik's mom wishes she could've learned to swim as a child. "I love water. My father didn't allow that," Mareddy said. "In our culture, it's not a usual thing to do -- to go for swimming lessons, especially for girls." Advaik's uncle, who performed the CPR, seemed the most impressed with his nephew's act of heroism. "It's simply superb," he told CNN. "If he had not been there, I don't know. I'm sure it would not be a happy ending."

Indeed.

... Hey, Sheriff?  Is it true Llano County Attorney Becky Lange has advised you to stay out of the "Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764" fiasco?  That right, Bill?  Isn't that obstruction of justice?  Also true your deputies have advised the Bolens to accept the status quo and not force the no-trespassing issue with Greene?  If so, isn't that also obstruction and official oppression?  When will you do your job, Bill?  As an elected official, you answer to the public, forget?  -- No honor?  ... No honor at all?  If the foregoing allegations are indeed true, didn't you swear an oath to uphold the law and Constitution?  Why aren't you doing so?  No guts?

Your deputy has been accused of abusing authority.  What action have you taken other than ignore the complaint?  Why aren't both Rodriguez and the County Attorney under criminal investigation?  The County Attorney appears to be obstructing justice, accepting the word of Greene in lieu of two surveyor companies who strongly assert otherwise.  Both the County Attorney and District Attorney have ignored complaints.  Par for the course in Llano County, isn't it?  Failed to do their jobs.  No surprise there, right, Bill?  Both receiving 'special consideration' up to and/or including a bribe from Greene?  Regardless, clearly, no justice in Nazi Llano County.  Bottom line?  Desperate need for an outside criminal investigation.  Conveniently, forget?  This County is ruled by men, certainly not rule of law and the United States Constitution.

Precisely, why there is desperate need for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, and prosecute criminal law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose only mandate would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.  Until that happens, the criminal bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole County will continue to do as they please.

When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff?  Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up. Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for?

Ferociously pointedly, why are the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?"

... Small sampling of what's to come in this edition.  Read on.

Re:  Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764

Counselor:

The enclosed emails were sent to the Llano County Attorney and Sheriff, respectively, vis a vis the above matter.  Remain unanswered.  The County Attorney appears to be protecting and defending the deputy at behest of Kingsland property owner Johnny Greene.  May have received some consideration from Greene up to and including a bribe.  Are the County Attorney, Greene, and the Deputy under criminal investigation?  If not, why not?

Re:  Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764

Counselor:

As you're well aware, we have an outrageously corrupt, abusive, achingly inept Llano County Sheriff's Office here in Nazi Llano County.  Worse, you and your office aid and abet these SS jackbooted bastards in black.  The issue at the moment is the same it's been the last six months.

How is it two surveyor companies, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, even the goddamned Sheriff himself now states Kingsland resident James Berardi owns the lots in contention all these months?

Yet, you ludicrously assert that's not the County's legal position.  It's not?  Why not?  You claim you're not a real estate expert.  Rather than accept the advice of two surveyor companies, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, and even the Sheriff himself, you've inexplicably chosen to follow the advice of property owner Johnny Greene, -- who conveniently happens to be reportedly in the oil industry.

Question to be asked.  Could you have received any 'consideration' in return, -- up to and including a bribe?  Only way to know for sure is for the District Attorney to conduct a criminal investigation.  Apparently, there has been none.  If not, why not?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to this Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.

Our achingly useless, worthless, gutless Sheriff has ignored an email vis a vis the damage this jackbooted thug is responsible for.  Interestingly, his fellow officers believe him to be an idiot.  Yet, the Sheriff continued to defend this piece of human excrement until he realized  this entire fiasco would not be swept under the carpet.

Rodriguez is indeed an idiot.  Would you believe this piece of crap ordered the motor home to be moved on to an unmarked unused Llano County road? That motor home has indeed been moved back to where it was parked before Rodriguez forced it to be moved.  Why hasn't the County paid for the cost of moving it back?  To say nothing of the damage.

Equally pointedly, why is it the County has allowed Theresa Ahrens to park and live in her tiny cottage on that very same road?  Why hasn't she been evicted by the County?  Why was she assessed taxes on an adjacent improvement she doesn't own?

Why is it, Counselor, Johnny Greene is paying for the attorney retained by Ms. Ahrens?  Is Greene attempting to make this all go away by bribery?  Greene has also informed Berardi he is going to sue.  For what?  Has Greene lost his mind?

What about Wells who installed a $4500 septic system on a lot turns out he does not own as a result of Greene, an outrageously inept County, to say nothing of the Llano County Attorney who remains equally determinedly clueless?

How about Bolen who hasn't a pot to piss in, but was nonetheless f--ked over by Greene to say nothing of an egregiously inept County, to say nothing of you and your goddamned equally incompetent office?

None of this is going away, Counselor, -- any time soon.  Will not be swept under the carpet as all the other crap going on in this hell hole County.  Not a chance.  Expect a full expose in this publication whether or not this outrageous fiasco finally gets resolved.  Including full public exposure of both the Sheriff and his jackbooted thug.

Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty two weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.  Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.

Who are they, Sheriff?  Their past history?  An ongoing investigation remains a lame bullshit excuse.  How can you and your goons be trusted when you refuse to disclose information?  One hundred forty two weeks.  Especially, your egregious failure to disclose the identity of the officers who pulled the trigger.  To cover your sorry ass, Sheriff?  Those of your thugs?  The people have a right to know what happened, how it went down.  You don't understand that, Sheriff?  Sadly, clearly, you answer to no one.  Including taxpayers.  Especially, taxpayers.

Until you and your goons come clean, doubt will remain this was indeed a good shoot.  The longer you drag your feet, the greater the doubt.  Think not?  Wake up.  Your credibility has tanked.  Isn't getting any better as this bullshit continues unabated.  One hundred forty two weeks.   Still no identification of the officers involved  ... Can't get your stories straight?  In line?  Discrepancy between LCSO and DPS? Wake up, Sheriff.  The public no longer buys the bullshit.  No longer trusts you.  On this and many, many other issues.  You have no credibility.  Absolutely, none.

Readers, this is but one of about four other highly questionable killings by law enforcement in Llano County in the last decade or so.  There was one within the City of Llano, another in a field near Fuzzy's Corner, Buchanan Dam, yet another in Point Tella, Buchanan Dam, still another in Tow.  If there are any others I may have neglected to mention, kindly email.

It's time the public be fully informed.  -- Know what we're dealing with here and how 'law' 'enforcement' operates in this hell hole County.  If these jackbooted bastards are not reined in, the life lost could be yours courtesy of a law enforcement system that is no longer accountable to anyone.  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

The Sheriff seems to have no clue the people who pay him and his goons are entitled to know whom is killing whom and why.  This shit always seems to be swept under the carpet.  Ignored.  The attitude of these jackbooted sons of bitches is trust us.  They can't be.  They've lied too many times.  Refuse to be accountable to anyone.  We live in a goddamned fascist police-state where law enforcement does as it pleases. Usually, with impunity.  That has to change.

The Texas Rangers have become rubber stamp to atrocities committed by law enforcement.  This also has to change.  No one is holding law enforcement accountable any longer.  No one.  No one in state or federal government. This is precisely why Ferguson triggered such an uproar.  There was no justice there.  None here.  None anywhere.  Officers are abusive, corrupt, inept.

Falsely ticket and arrest the innocent to line County coffers.  Court fees charged continue to be horrendous.  -- Aren't taxpayers already looted to pay these costs?  Aren't you boys not only double f--king those falsely accused, but taxpayers also hellaciously looted to pay the very same costs?   Yet, the criminal bastards in power in Llano continue to pile on the fees. This is nothing more than goddamned bullshit.  This money finds its way into the pockets of the corrupt, abusive bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole.

Would you believe the last time the Sheriff's Office happened to be 'audited' during the Garrett regime, reportedly, auditors couldn't figure out what went where and why? Yet, surprise, surprise.  Nothing was done.  There has to be transparency.  There is none.  Why would these thieving bastards want any?  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  How else could they so easily steal and loot with virtual impunity?  Worse, this reinforces jackbooted power in this goddamned, godforsaken hell hole County.

The public has a right to know the histories of the Sheriff's goons.  Clearly, the Sheriff doesn't think so.  That is, where they came from.  Why they left where they were.  What is happening here is the Sheriff is using 'personnel matters' as a convenient excuse to deny the public access to the history of outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept officers who are no more than criminals themselves.

He's protecting his outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards.  Worse, the standards imposed by sheriff's offices statewide with the exception of metropolitan counties are well below those of DPS and city police departments.  Why?  So the corruption, abuse, ineptness, and outright stealing can continue unabated?  This has to change.  ... Can't have that, can we?  Sheriff?  TL?

The public should understand Llano County authorities have it all sewn up.  Did you know the Texas Attorney General does not have the authority to investigate and prosecute County authorities on his own?  The District Attorney has to call for an investigation by the Texas Rangers.  Then, the State can prosecute if it so chooses.

Consequently?  Guess what?  Nothing will happen.  Nothing ever does.  The goddamned corruption continues unabated until you, the public, pressure authorities.  Precisely, why we all enjoy the 'best' government money can buy. Literally.  Without question, the corrupt, abusive, inept sons of bitches are all bought and paid for.  Firmly clamped to the taxpayer tit.  Dependent on money looted from innocent citizens caught in their web.  Phony fines and court costs cleverly designed to f--k the innocent and enrich the pieces of shit who falsely believe they run and own Llano County. Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

Interestingly, the former Sheriff and District Attorney were reportedly forced to retire after an outrageous scandal involving a drunk driving police officer from out of town.  Including special treatment of the drunken son of a bitch that no other citizen caught doing the same would have been afforded.  An honest, honorable Llano County Deputy suffered the consequences. Forget?  Great officers do not last in this hell hole County. ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

With all ongoing abuse in this goddamned County, one thing remains for damned sure.  We're just getting started, Sheriff.  You will continue to be exposed for whom and what you and your corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards have become, truly are, not what you phonies purport to be, that is, how you continue to f--k over a public you've falsely sworn to protect and defend.  -- Exposure, the only way short of an unwanted dreaded revolution to force desperately needed change in a goddamned fascist police-state. The Fourth Reich.

Have your jackbooted thugs been tested for steroids, Sheriff?  If you've nothing to hide, Bill, release the results of all drug testing.  'Personnel matters?'  Bullshit.  Looted taxpayers have the right to know.  They're footing the bill for all this goddamned corruption, abuse, ineptness. When will you and the boys end the shakedowns?  Looting of the innocent to line County coffers?  No honor at all?

Where are your swastika armbands, you fascist son of a bitch?  You and your thugs remain out of uniform.  Once again, Sheriff, and ad nauseum, did you and/or your goons pressure Schilling to exit the race?  Did you steal the election? If so, an aggressively stupid, achingly gutless public gets what it truly deserves.  One of the most corrupt, abusive, inept 'law' 'enforcement' agencies in our formerly great country.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Finally, some justice?  Don't hold your breath.  In follow up to a story covered here and elsewhere recently, ABC News reports:

"Two former South Carolina sheriff's deputies were arrested Friday after two women in their transport van died when they were swept away in Hurricane Florence floodwaters, officials said. Joshua Bishop, 29, has been charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter, and Stephen Flood, 66, has been charged with two counts of reckless homicide and two counts of involuntary manslaughter, said the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED), which is investigating the case. The Horry County Sheriff's deputies, Bishop and Flood, were assigned to transport the two women, both mental health patients, for treatment on Sept. 18 as water levels were rising from the deadly hurricane, SLED said. The deputies were told by another officer that a certain route wouldn't be passable because of the water, but Flood took that route anyway, and he drove right into floodwaters, SLED claimed."

Goddamned idiot, right, Sheriff?

"Their van stalled out and was swept across the road and up against a guardrail, SLED said, and then the road under them washed away and the van sank into a hole."

Imagine that.  Two goddamned clueless idiots.

"Bishop escaped and tried to rescue the women, who couldn't open the doors from inside, but he wasn't able to, according to SLED.  Bishop was able to save Flood and a boat later rescued the officers, SLED said. Both women, Wendy Newton and Nicolette Green, drowned, SLED said. Bishop and Flood were fired in October, Brooke Holden, spokeswoman for the Horry County Sheriff’s Office, told ABC News. She declined to comment further, deferring to SLED. Bishop and Flood surrendered Friday morning to SLED agents at the Marion County Detention Center, SLED spokesman Thom Berry told ABC News. They had a bond hearing following booking, Berry said."

NBC News reports:

"The mother of a woman who drowned in floodwaters while riding in the back of a South Carolina sheriff's office van blamed her death on the "stupidity and selfishness" of the two deputies entrusted with her care, and told a judge Friday that "no amount of justice" would heal her heart. The family members of Nicolette Green, 43, as well as a second woman who drowned in the van, Wendy Newton, 45, spoke through tears while addressing the court during a bond hearing for the former Horry County deputies. Linda Green, Nicolette's mother, said she is haunted daily by "the horror" of her daughter gasping for air as the rising waters trapped her last September in the wake of Hurricane Florence. Both women were mental health patients and being transported to a behavioral center as part of their treatment when the incident occurred."

Law enforcement at its very 'best', right, Sheriff?

"Linda Green said her daughter had been slowly improving after suffering from bouts of schizophrenia, and had willingly gone with the deputies as part of a routine to monitor her medication. "We, as her family, realized it was helping her and we were getting her back as a daughter, and a mother and as a sister," Linda Green said. "We were overjoyed at getting her back with us. Not just physically, but mentally and emotionally." Rose Hershberger, Nicolette Green's oldest daughter and a senior in high school, lamented about not having her mother during milestones in her life, like picking out a prom dress or her graduation. "Every night is just a constant lack of sleep," Hershberger said. "All I see is my mother, and I hear her screams and her cries."

Outrageous, isn't it?  Totally avoidable.  These women died for nothing.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Cheryl Graham, the associate chief magistrate in Marion County, later responded that "to say that this is a tragedy is an understatement. … May God help us all." Graham set bond at $30,000 for Stephen Flood, who was charged with two counts each of reckless homicide and involuntary manslaughter, and at $10,000 for Joshua Bishop, who was charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter."

Think justice will prevail?

"Attorneys for the men argued that both are well-respected in the community, had many years of experience with the sheriff's office and were not flight risks. Bishop's attorney told the court that his client's wife is due to give birth next month, and that "his heart hurts every day for what has occurred."

Tough shit.  Two women are dead for no reason.  Absolutely no reason at all.  Two jackbooted idiots responsible.

"The next hearing date was set for Feb. 26. Both men were fired after the deaths of Green and Newton. While Horry County officials said Flood went around a barrier meant to prevent vehicles from entering hazardous areas, he had been waved through by National Guardsmen."

Why weren't the Guardsmen charged as well?  Goddamned idiots.

"Meanwhile, the women were locked in the back of the van. The deputies said neither could be reached once they realized they were surrounded by floodwaters. Amid the chaos, the van ended up on its side and rested against a guardrail, and the deputies said they were unable to unlock the back door. They waited on the roof of the van until they could be rescued, authorities said."

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Some things never change.  Sad, isn't it?  The Washington Post reports:

"Baltimore is also one of 30 cities that have seen an increase in homicides in recent years, with the greatest raw number increase in killings of any city other than Chicago, which has four times the population. While homicide rates remain near historical lows in most American cities, Baltimore and Chicago are now both seeing murder tallies that rival the early 2000s. The wave of violence here began not long after the April 2015 death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man arrested in West Baltimore and placed — hands cuffed and legs shackled — in the back of a police van. There, he suffered a severe neck injury and lost consciousness. He died in the hospital about a week later."

Died for nothing.  At the hands of the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue, right, Sheriff?

Here's the problem:

"Gray’s death prompted massive protests that at times turned to riots. The years since have come with a documented officer slowdown — patrol officers say they are hesitant to leave their vehicles and have made fewer subjective stops of people on Baltimore’s streets. That, coupled with a crisis of police legitimacy as residents express distrust and frustration with the force, has fueled a public safety emergency in parts of the city, community leaders say. “It’s an open market, open season for killing,” said Alston, whose son Tariq was murdered in 2008. “After Freddie Gray, things just went berserk.”

Massive failure of law enforcement to do its job professionally, non-abusively, constitutionally.  ... Right, Sheriff?

Never ends.  ABC News reports:

"A sheriff's deputy has been placed on restricted duty following the release of a statewide commission's report on the handling of last year's mass shooting at a Florida high school. News outlets report Broward Sheriff's Deputy Joshua Stambaugh was informed of the decision on Thursday. Commissioners said Stambaugh "did not move toward the campus" despite hearing gunshots. Their report said his body camera captured the sound of the final shots being fired. Nikolas Cruz, now 20, initially got away and now awaits trial on 17 counts of first-degree murder. Deputy Edward Eason and Sgt. Brian Miller also were placed on restricted duty, meaning they also turned in their badges and guns. Two other deputies, including the widely criticized school resource officer Scott Peterson, have retired since the Feb. 14 massacre."

Think the following endears police to those they allegedly serve?  CBS News reports:

"An Arkansas sheriff's deputy was fired after he was caught on video shooting a small dog during a response call last week. Deputy Keenan Wallace was relieved of his duties after it was determined he had "numerous opportunities to de-escalate" the situation, Faulkner County Sheriff Tim Ryals said in a Facebook post on Saturday. The dog was wounded but survived."

What could this guy possibly be thinking?

"In a graphic viral video, Wallace fired at a barking chihuahua named Reese's outside a home in Shiloh Estates, Arkansas –– a few feet away from Doug Canady, who took the footage and is looking after the dog. As the dog squeals in pain, Canady can be heard saying, "I just recorded you shooting that dog in front of me, putting me in danger!" The deputy replies, "No I didn't. The shot hit the dog, what I aimed at."

This guy's an idiot.  Danger to himself and others.

"Authorities initially said Friday a deputy fired at a dog who was "aggressive," but a day later, Ryals terminated Wallace."

Got rid of an idiot.  Spared themselves far worse.

"We in Law Enforcement answer calls every day that require split second life and death decisions," Ryals said in a statement. "We strive to be right 100 percent of the time. Our Department is sadden about this incident and apologize for any distress and disappointment this incident has caused anyone who was affected by this disheartening event." "Ryals said it appears no "policies or laws" were violated, but he will forward the investigation to prosecutors. According to CBS affiliate KTHV, Wallace also had a K-9 deputy assigned to him."

The dog is not in the clear:

"As for Reese's, the dog suffered a bullet wound to her jaw and is recuperating, but "not out of the woods yet," according to the latest update on a GoFundMe page for the injured pooch. She and another dog, Oreo, were known strays in the neighborhood after they were left behind by their previous owners, but were taken care of by Canady and his daughter, according to the fundraiser page. Reese's also appeared to be walking in a new video posted a Facebook page dedicated to its recovery."

Another atrocious failure of the FBI.  The Washington Post reports:

"IT’S TIME for the FBI to wake from the deep slumber masquerading as its investigation into the death of Bijan Ghaisar, the unarmed driver needlessly shot to death by U.S. Park Police officers nearly 14 months ago near Washington. As the agency’s somnolence stretches month after month, its contempt for the Ghaisar family’s grief and the public’s right to know becomes ever clearer."

This government gives a shit only about the top of the food chain.  Everyone else is no more than human chatel.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"To date, the FBI has ignored calls from the Ghaisar family for an accounting of what happened. It has thumbed its nose at the congressman representing the Northern Virginia district where the shooting took place, whose request for a meeting with FBI Director Christopher A. Wray was rebuffed. Now it is dragging its feet in responding to a Dec. 17 letter from Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee until this month, who demanded information on Ghaisar’s senseless, unwarranted death."

... Hear the rumble?  An unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming.  This goddamned government no longer answers to the people.  We remain a de facto fascist police-state since 9/11, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  ... Right, Sheriff?

“The Ghaisar family ... should not have to wait over a year to learn the facts of this case,” the senator wrote in a letter to Mr. Wray. “Both his family and the public are entitled to a complete, credible and independent accounting of the events surrounding the death of Mr. Ghaisar.”

Indeed.  They sit on information the public is entitled to just like here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Mr. Grassley asked that the agency respond by Dec. 28 — so far, ignored — to a handful of simple, straightforward queries, including whether it had completed its investigation. In the alternative, he requested that the FBI provide the Judiciary Committee with a progress report and a projected date on which the inquiry would be finished. Finally, Mr. Grassley asked if the FBI would provide a copy of its investigative report to the committee, adding, “If not, why not?”

For precisely the reason the same shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Right, Sheriff?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

"Those are all excellent questions that together raise an even more basic one: On what basis does the FBI justify a policy of arrogance and unaccountability in the Ghaisar case, which now spans more than 400 days?"

Same question is directed to the Llano County Sheriff, District Attorney, Llano County Attorney?  You bastards continue to gutlessly stonewall.  Remain unanswerable to the public you egregiously, determinedly, concertedly continue to f--k over.

"In police-involved shootings nationwide, many (though not all) state and local law enforcement departments have opted for greater transparency, providing at least basic information — including officers’ identities — pending the outcome of investigations. The goal is to cultivate public trust through openness."

No transparency in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

"That seems irrelevant to the FBI, to which the Park Police referred the investigation within days of the Nov. 17, 2017, shooting of Ghaisar. Much of what is known about the shooting came to light only because another agency, the Fairfax County Police Department, released dash-cam video of the incident, shot by a patrol car that was trailing the Park Police vehicle."

Nazi Aryan arrogance, right, Sheriff?

"It shows Ghaisar, who continued driving after his car was rear-ended in a minor fender-bender on the George Washington Memorial Parkway, being pursued by the Park Police, though not at a high speed. Twice he pulls over, only to drive off when the Park Police officers approach his car with pistols drawn — though he presents no apparent threat. The third time he pulls over, his car rolls slowly away from the two officers, who this time open fire, shooting nine times at Ghaisar."

Legalized murder.  In a goddamned de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  ... Right, Sheriff?  No justice.  Just like right here in Nazi Llano County.

"How did a fender-bender come to that? What were the police thinking? Why did they draw their guns in the first place? Those are questions that deserve answers. But the FBI is mum."

Gutless, traitorous, treasonous, treacherous jackbooted sons of bitches.  Unadulterated, blatant ongoing horse shit.  ... Right, Bill?  F--k these jackbooted bastards.  Aren't worth a crap.  Continually abrogate their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Includes not only deputies, but the brass as well.  No principles.  No honor.  Lying, conniving, abusive, murderous jackbooted thieving thugs.  The American Civil Liberties Union needs to step up and represent the victims of abusive law enforcement.

To say nothing of innocent civilians all across our formerly great country who are victimized by abusive police.  Need far better representation than a public defender.  Forget?  It's how the bastards in government line government coffers.  All too often, looting the innocent.  Those on the bottom of the food chain.  ... Right, Sheriff?

No justice.  The American Way.  Nazi America.  When is this shit finally going to end?  All of it.  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty two weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.

Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.  Who the hell are they?

When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff?  Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up. Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for?

Ferociously pointedly, why are the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Think the following isn't extraordinarily stupid?  Unnecessary.  ABC News reports:

"A 4-year-old has died after she was struck by a police officer’s car at a Missouri high school on Friday, according to authorities. The officer, identified by the Missouri State Highway Patrol as Andria Heese of the Columbia Police Department, hit the child with a marked patrol car around 3:55 p.m., the department said in a press release. Heese, 27, was driving a 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe at the time, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report.  The girl, identified by authorities as Gabriella Curry, was walking on the sidewalk when she was hit, the report stated. Heese had driven onto the sidewalk so she could observe students loading onto school buses, according to the report."

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

As always, when law enforcement does something heroic, and/or or exceptional benefit to the community, it leads.  Always.  ... Have to say this is undoubtedly the strangest resolution to an extremely dangerous confrontation ever reported in this publication.  -- Whatever works, however.  Saves lives.  CBS News reports:

"Chester County, Pa. — A Christmas Day barricade situation ended after the East Vincent Township SWAT team used an unusual tactic: singing a Christmas carol. CBS Philadelphia reports the incident began when family members called police to the home of 34-year-old Nathaniel Lewis, a member of the Pennsylvania National Guard. Authorities said Lewis was behaving erratically due to separating from his wife. When police arrived, they found out that Lewis had a gun. The SWAT team was called to help diffuse the situation. An hours-long standoff ensued, with Lewis firing at police officers from a second-story bedroom. Bullets struck the sides of an armored police vehicle, a civilian's vehicle and a nearby home."

SWAT effectively handled the situation:

"We were putting our kids to bed around 9 and heard what we thought was a firework," said neighbor Megan Flynn. Megan and Matthew Flynn said a SWAT team rushed them and their kids into a basement, saying they were responding to a barricade situation with their neighbor. Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan said police initially conducted a wellness check on Lewis after his wife asked for a separation. Lewis refused to come out of the house, and then took his rifle, firing some 20 shots at officers outside."

Have to wonder why anyone in this situation would do this.  Then again, can't expect rational behavior from someone who is not.  No matter the cause or trigger.

"Nearly nine hours later, Lewis demanded a negotiator sing him "White Christmas." Four verses later, Lewis came out."

Imagine that.  Whatever it takes.  Hat's off.

"This is as close to a Christmas miracle as you're gonna get. Everybody got to go home to their families that day. The SWAT team got to go to their families. The defendant was taken into custody, but he wasn't killed," said Hogan."

Indeed.  Great resolution.

"Lewis was taken into custody at 7 a.m. Wednesday. He has been charged with multiple counts of attempted homicide, aggravated assault and other offenses. He is being held at the Chester County Prison."

Certainly, desperately needs mental health care.

... 'Out of the mouths of babes."  Seatbelts on.  CBS News reports:

"Michael Bell is a regular visitor to the hospital because of a genetic disorder that can cause tumors to form. It appears those visits were on the 8-year-old New Jersey boy's mind when he sat down with Santa last week and asked for a special gift. When Michael asked for something that wasn't for himself, Santa pulled his mother, Amy Bell, aside and revealed Michael's wish: "If he could borrow some money for kids with cancer," Amy said. "I was expecting him to ask for Eagles stuff." Michael takes routine trips to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia for screenings and has met several kids affected by cancer. But his mom never thought he understood the gravity of their situation."

Kids are cognizant of far more than most adults give them credit for.

"Word quickly spread among friends and family about Michael's request, and come Christmas Day, that wish came true. "I thought I was all done, but then I looked to the platform and I saw something under the platform. I took it out, and there was a million hundred dollars," Michael said. It wasn't quite that much, but Santa did leave Michael with more than $1,000 to help kids with cancer.  Santa's note to Michael read, "You're truly a shining star. I'm so proud of you for thinking of others during this time of year." His reaction? Priceless. "That was the real Santa!" It's a Christmas miracle Amy said she hopes others will carry with them. "Adults can learn a lot from an 8-year-old being selfless," she said."

Truer words, never spoken.

"She said the family is planning to present the donation to one of the doctors in the hospital's neuro-oncology unit, where he gets tested."

... Hey, Sheriff?  Is it true Llano County Attorney Becky Lange has advised you to stay out of the "Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764" fiasco?  That right, Bill?  Isn't that obstruction of justice?  Also true your deputies have advised the Bolens to accept the status quo and not force the no-trespassing issue with Greene?  If so, isn't that also obstruction and official oppression?  When will you do your job, Bill?  As an elected official, you answer to the public, forget?  -- No honor?  ... No honor at all?  If the foregoing allegations are indeed true, didn't you swear an oath to uphold the law and Constitution?  Why aren't you doing so?  No guts?

Your deputy has been accused of abusing authority.  What action have you taken other than ignore the complaint?  Why aren't both Rodriguez and the County Attorney under criminal investigation?  The County Attorney appears to be obstructing justice, accepting the word of Greene in lieu of two surveyor companies who strongly assert otherwise.  Both the County Attorney and District Attorney have ignored complaints.  Par for the course in Llano County, isn't it?  Failed to do their jobs.  No surprise there, right, Bill?  Both receiving 'special consideration' up to and/or including a bribe from Greene?  Regardless, clearly, no justice in Nazi Llano County.  Bottom line?  Desperate need for an outside criminal investigation.  Conveniently, forget?  This County is ruled by men, certainly not rule of law and the United States Constitution.

Precisely, why there is desperate need for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, and prosecute criminal law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose only mandate would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.  Until that happens, the criminal bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole County will continue to do as they please.

Some salient quotes occurring later on in this edition vis a vis unfinished business County officials continue to ignore:

... "No principles.  No honor.  No heart.  No soul.  Yet another example of police malfeasance, lack of judgment, refusal to stand up for this victim of racism, failure to insist at the very least his money for the room be refunded.  Otherwise, no more than legalized theft by the hotel. This crap goes on all over our formerly great country.  Needs to end.

If you're an honest deputy in the Llano County Sheriff's Office and have knowledge of any and all such malfeasance, contact me.  I  will protect your identity.  Until this sees the light of day, there will be no desperately needed change.  Only more of the very same abuse and corruption.  The problem is indeed top-down, bottom-up, right, Sheriff"

Counselor:

The enclosed emails were sent to the Llano County Attorney and Sheriff, respectively, vis a vis the above matter.  Remain unanswered.  The County Attorney appears to be protecting and defending the deputy at behest of Kingsland property owner Johnny Greene.  May have received some consideration from Greene up to and including a bribe.  Are the County Attorney, Greene, and the Deputy under criminal investigation?  If not, why not?

Re:  Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764

Counselor:

As you're well aware, we have an outrageously corrupt, abusive, achingly inept Llano County Sheriff's Office here in Nazi Llano County.  Worse, you and your office aid and abet these SS jackbooted bastards in black.  The issue at the moment is the same it's been the last six months.

How is it two surveyor companies, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, even the goddamned Sheriff himself now states Kingsland resident James Berardi owns the lots in contention all these months?

Yet, you ludicrously assert that's not the County's legal position.  It's not?  Why not?  You claim you're not a real estate expert.  Rather than accept the advice of two surveyor companies, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, and even the Sheriff himself, you've inexplicably chosen to follow the advice of property owner Johnny Greene, -- who conveniently happens to be reportedly in the oil industry.

Question to be asked.  Could you have received any 'consideration' in return, -- up to and including a bribe?  Only way to know for sure is for the District Attorney to conduct a criminal investigation.  Apparently, there has been none.  If not, why not?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to this Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.

Our achingly useless, worthless, gutless Sheriff has ignored an email vis a vis the damage this jackbooted thug is responsible for.  Interestingly, his fellow officers believe him to be an idiot.  Yet, the Sheriff continued to defend this piece of human excrement until he realized  this entire fiasco would not be swept under the carpet.

Rodriguez is indeed an idiot.  Would you believe this piece of crap ordered the motor home to be moved on to an unmarked unused Llano County road? That motor home has indeed been moved back to where it was parked before Rodriguez forced it to be moved.  Why hasn't the County paid for the cost of moving it back?  To say nothing of the damage.

Equally pointedly, why is it the County has allowed Theresa Ahrens to park and live in her tiny cottage on that very same road?  Why hasn't she been evicted by the County?  Why was she assessed taxes on an adjacent improvement she doesn't own?

Why is it, Counselor, Johnny Greene is paying for the attorney retained by Ms. Ahrens?  Is Greene attempting to make this all go away by bribery?  Greene has also informed Berardi he is going to sue.  For what?  Has Greene lost his mind?

What about Wells who installed a $4500 septic system on a lot turns out he does not own as a result of Greene, an outrageously inept County, to say nothing of the Llano County Attorney who remains equally determinedly clueless?

How about Bolen who hasn't a pot to piss in, but was nonetheless f--ked over by Greene to say nothing of an egregiously inept County, to say nothing of you and your goddamned equally incompetent office?

None of this is going away, Counselor, -- any time soon.  Will not be swept under the carpet as all the other crap going on in this hell hole County.  Not a chance.  Expect a full expose in this publication whether or not this outrageous fiasco finally gets resolved.  Including full public exposure of both the Sheriff and his jackbooted thug.

Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty one weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.  Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.

Who are they, Sheriff?  Their past history?  An ongoing investigation remains a lame bullshit excuse.  How can you and your goons be trusted when you refuse to disclose information?  One hundred forty one weeks.  Especially, your egregious failure to disclose the identity of the officers who pulled the trigger.  To cover your sorry ass, Sheriff?  Those of your thugs?  The people have a right to know what happened, how it went down.  You don't understand that, Sheriff?  Sadly, clearly, you answer to no one.  Including taxpayers.  Especially, taxpayers.

Until you and your goons come clean, doubt will remain this was indeed a good shoot.  The longer you drag your feet, the greater the doubt.  Think not?  Wake up.  Your credibility has tanked.  Isn't getting any better as this bullshit continues unabated.  One hundred forty one weeks.   Still no identification of the officers involved  ... Can't get your stories straight?  In line?  Discrepancy between LCSO and DPS? Wake up, Sheriff.  The public no longer buys the bullshit.  No longer trusts you.  On this and many, many other issues.  You have no credibility.  Absolutely, none.

Readers, this is but one of about four other highly questionable killings by law enforcement in Llano County in the last decade or so.  There was one within the City of Llano, another in a field near Fuzzy's Corner, Buchanan Dam, yet another in Point Tella, Buchanan Dam, still another in Tow.  If there are any others I may have neglected to mention, kindly email.

It's time the public be fully informed.  -- Know what we're dealing with here and how 'law' 'enforcement' operates in this hell hole County.  If these jackbooted bastards are not reined in, the life lost could be yours courtesy of a law enforcement system that is no longer accountable to anyone.  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

The Sheriff seems to have no clue the people who pay him and his goons are entitled to know whom is killing whom and why.  This shit always seems to be swept under the carpet.  Ignored.  The attitude of these jackbooted sons of bitches is trust us.  They can't be.  They've lied too many times.  Refuse to be accountable to anyone.  We live in a goddamned fascist police-state where law enforcement does as it pleases. Usually, with impunity.  That has to change.

The Texas Rangers have become rubber stamp to atrocities committed by law enforcement.  This also has to change.  No one is holding law enforcement accountable any longer.  No one.  No one in state or federal government. This is precisely why Ferguson triggered such an uproar.  There was no justice there.  None here.  None anywhere.  Officers are abusive, corrupt, inept.

Falsely ticket and arrest the innocent to line County coffers.  Court fees charged continue to be horrendous.  -- Aren't taxpayers already looted to pay these costs?  Aren't you boys not only double f--king those falsely accused, but taxpayers also hellaciously looted to pay the very same costs?   Yet, the criminal bastards in power in Llano continue to pile on the fees. This is nothing more than goddamned bullshit.  This money finds its way into the pockets of the corrupt, abusive bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole.

Would you believe the last time the Sheriff's Office happened to be 'audited' during the Garrett regime, reportedly, auditors couldn't figure out what went where and why? Yet, surprise, surprise.  Nothing was done.  There has to be transparency.  There is none.  Why would these thieving bastards want any?  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  How else could they so easily steal and loot with virtual impunity?  Worse, this reinforces jackbooted power in this goddamned, godforsaken hell hole County.

The public has a right to know the histories of the Sheriff's goons.  Clearly, the Sheriff doesn't think so.  That is, where they came from.  Why they left where they were.  What is happening here is the Sheriff is using 'personnel matters' as a convenient excuse to deny the public access to the history of outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept officers who are no more than criminals themselves.

He's protecting his outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards.  Worse, the standards imposed by sheriff's offices statewide with the exception of metropolitan counties are well below those of DPS and city police departments.  Why?  So the corruption, abuse, ineptness, and outright stealing can continue unabated?  This has to change.  ... Can't have that, can we?  Sheriff?  TL?

The public should understand Llano County authorities have it all sewn up.  Did you know the Texas Attorney General does not have the authority to investigate and prosecute County authorities on his own?  The District Attorney has to call for an investigation by the Texas Rangers.  Then, the State can prosecute if it so chooses.

Consequently?  Guess what?  Nothing will happen.  Nothing ever does.  The goddamned corruption continues unabated until you, the public, pressure authorities.  Precisely, why we all enjoy the 'best' government money can buy. Literally.  Without question, the corrupt, abusive, inept sons of bitches are all bought and paid for.  Firmly clamped to the taxpayer tit.  Dependent on money looted from innocent citizens caught in their web.  Phony fines and court costs cleverly designed to f--k the innocent and enrich the pieces of shit who falsely believe they run and own Llano County. Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

Interestingly, the former Sheriff and District Attorney were reportedly forced to retire after an outrageous scandal involving a drunk driving police officer from out of town.  Including special treatment of the drunken son of a bitch that no other citizen caught doing the same would have been afforded.  An honest, honorable Llano County Deputy suffered the consequences. Forget?  Great officers do not last in this hell hole County. ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

With all ongoing abuse in this goddamned County, one thing remains for damned sure.  We're just getting started, Sheriff.  You will continue to be exposed for whom and what you and your corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards have become, truly are, not what you phonies purport to be, that is, how you continue to f--k over a public you've falsely sworn to protect and defend.  -- Exposure, the only way short of an unwanted dreaded revolution to force desperately needed change in a goddamned fascist police-state. The Fourth Reich.

Have your jackbooted thugs been tested for steroids, Sheriff?  If you've nothing to hide, Bill, release the results of all drug testing.  'Personnel matters?'  Bullshit.  Looted taxpayers have the right to know.  They're footing the bill for all this goddamned corruption, abuse, ineptness. When will you and the boys end the shakedowns?  Looting of the innocent to line County coffers?  No honor at all?

Where are your swastika armbands, you fascist son of a bitch?  You and your thugs remain out of uniform.  Once again, Sheriff, and ad nauseum, did you and/or your goons pressure Schilling to exit the race?  Did you steal the election? If so, an aggressively stupid, achingly gutless public gets what it truly deserves.  One of the most corrupt, abusive, inept 'law' 'enforcement' agencies in our formerly great country.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Never ends.  Bigotry alive and well in Nazi America.  CBS News reports:

"A black man who was a registered guest at a DoubleTree hotel in Portland, Oregon was asked to leave by hotel officials while he was sitting in the lobby making a phone call, reports the CBS affiliate there, KOIN-TV. Jermaine Massey, of  Kent, Washington, was in Portland to see rapper Travis Scott at the Moda Center Saturday, OregonLive/The Oregonian reports, when he got a late night call from his mother on the East Coast. He sat in the lobby of the DoubleTree to take the call. While he was on the phone, a security guard came up to him, told him to leave and called police."

For what?  Being black?

"Massey recorded the encounter with a security guard named Earl on his phone and posted it to Instagram. In those posts, he claims he was racially profiled. At one point, Massey explains to Earl that he is a hotel guest and Earl replies, "Not anymore."

That right?  Paid for a room, didn't he?

"Hotel management told police Massey was trespassing. When officers arrived, hotel employees pointed out Massey as the trespasser."

Here's the post:

"Tonight I was racially profiled and discriminated against for taking a phone call in the lobby of my hotel room at the @doubletreepdx @doubletree. The security guard “Earl” decided that he would call the police on me, the exact reason is still unclear to me. He said that I was a safety threat to the other guests and that I was trespassing and said that I was a disturbance because I took a personal phone call from my mom in a more remote area of the lobby. The manager who actually called the cops, “Luis” actually asked me AFTER he called the cops, what happened? They already had in their minds that they didn’t want me there so I waited for the cops to show up and when they did, I explained my side of the story and they didn’t want to hear it. They asked me if I had personal items in my room (which of course I did) and asked me to go retrieve them. They told me that since the hotel requested me to leave, that if I didn’t I would be considered a trespasser and would be thrown in jail. I complied and cooperated and was not issued a refund for my room. I packed my stuff and went to another hotel. I cannot believe the level of professionalism that this hotel property had with me tonight. It is never ok to discriminate against guests for the color of their skin and to prejudge them based on your own bias against that race. Earl is a disgrace, calls himself a man but calls the Portland Police Dept on a man who was minding his own business in the lobby of his hotel. I had my hotel key in my hand the entire conversation, he knew I was a guest. He wanted to prove a point and did it in the worst way. Not really shocked that this happened but just extremely disappointed. I will be seeking justice. Believe that. @doubletree @doubletreepdx @hiltonhonors #hilton #hiltonhotels #racism #racisminamerica #racismisreal @shaunking

"Portland police confirmed that account in a statement to KOIN, adding that they offered Massey help in finding a new hotel but Massey didn't take them up on it."

Where was the judgment of the officer?  Up his ass?  This man paid for a room.  Caused no disturbance.  Was lawfully using hotel facilities.

"The Oregonian/OregonLive reports DoubleTree management issued a statement saying the whole incident was a misunderstanding and their hotel staff doesn't discriminate against people based on race."

Doesn't jive with the facts and what went down.  What misunderstanding?

"In a Wednesday statement to KOIN, DoubleTree General Manager Paul Peralta called the incident "unfortunate," adding, "We are sorry that this matter ended the way it did and have reached out to the gentleman in order to resolve this matter.  … Our hotel does not discriminate against any individual or group.  We look forward to speaking with him." KOIN hasn't heard back from Massey or from DoubleTree corporate officials."

Massey needs to sue the living shit out of the hotel, department, officer, and the city.

CNN reports:

"Two employees seen on video asking a black guest to leave a Portland, Oregon, hotel after he took a phone call in the lobby have been let go, the facility said Saturday on Twitter. The incident took place December 22 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Portland. Jermaine Massey was in the hotel lobby when a security guard informed him that police were on their way to escort him off the property. Massey accused the guard of "harassing" him, and in a statement provided to CNN by his attorneys, characterized the incident as "calling his mother while black."

"Their actions were inconsistent with our standards & values. We reiterate our sincere apology for what he endured & will work with diversity experts to ensure this never happens again." We have terminated the employment of the two men involved in the mistreatment of Mr. Massey. Their actions were inconsistent with our standards & values. We reiterate our sincere apology for what he endured & will work with diversity experts to ensure this never happens again.
    — DoubleTree Portland (@doubletreepdx) December 29, 2018

"The move comes a day after the hotel apologized to Massey. On Friday, it placed the employees on leave during an investigation and said it would take "the appropriate measures to ensure this does not happen again." "We have a zero-tolerance stance on discrimination of any kind, and do not tolerate behavior of that nature," the hotel said then on Twitter. In a series of Instagram videos recorded by Massey and obtained by CNN, he is heard asking the guard, "But why? But I'm staying here." "Not anymore," the security guard replies. Massey then told a hotel desk staffer he was taking a personal phone call in the lobby when the guard began to question why he was there. At one point in the videos, he shows the two men his keycard envelope with the room number and date written on it. Hotel staff contacted the Portland Police Bureau and asked an officer to speak with Massey after employees asked him to leave the property, according to a police statement. The officer then escorted Massey back to his room to collect his belongings and offered him assistance to a different hotel, but he declined, police said."

No principles.  No honor.  No heart.  No soul.  Yet another example of police malfeasance, lack of judgment, refusal to stand up for this victim of racism, failure to insist at the very least his money for the room be refunded.  Otherwise, no more than legalized theft by the hotel. This crap goes on all over our formerly great country.  Needs to end.

If you're an honest deputy in the Llano County Sheriff's Office and have knowledge of any and all such malfeasance, contact me.  I  will protect your identity.  Until this sees the light of day, there will be no desperately needed change.  Only more of the very same abuse and corruption.  The problem is indeed top-down, bottom-up, right, Sheriff"

Unadulterated, blatant ongoing horse shit.  ... Right, Bill?  F--k these jackbooted bastards.  Aren't worth a crap.  Continually abrogate their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Includes not only deputies, but the brass as well.  No principles.  No honor.  Lying, conniving, abusive, murderous jackbooted thieving thugs.  The American Civil Liberties Union needs to step up and represent the victims of abusive law enforcement.

To say nothing of innocent civilians all across our formerly great country who are victimized by abusive police.  Need far better representation than a public defender.  Forget?  It's how the bastards in government line government coffers.  All too often, looting the innocent.  Those on the bottom of the food chain.  ... Right, Sheriff?

No justice.  The American Way.  Nazi America.  When is this shit finally going to end?  All of it.  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty one weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.

Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.  Who the hell are they?

When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff?  Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up. Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for?

Ferociously pointedly, why are the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

In follow up to a case repeatedly covered here and elsewhere, the jackbooted killer of Justine Ruszczyk Damond is clearly desperate, but apparently not that desperate.  Would you believe his lawyers failed to show up to examine the squad car?  ABC News reports:

"Minneapolis police say representatives of a former officer who fatally shot an Australian woman last year didn't show up to inspect a department Ford Explorer squad car after a judge granted the defense access for four hours Friday evening."

Fascinating, isn't it?  Inexplicable, as well.  Here's why:

"Police spokesman John Elder said Saturday that Noor's defense didn't come to the police precinct during the 6p.m.-10 p.m. window allowed by the judge. An attorney for Noor declined to comment Saturday to The Associated Press. Noor's lawyers had asked for access to the SUV on Friday because the moon was to be in the same phase as it was on the night in July 2017 when he shot Justine Ruszczyk Damond."

Amazing, no?

"Authorities say Noor fired past his partner, who was behind the wheel, as Damond approached the driver-side window. Noor's attorneys have indicated he will plead not guilty to charges of second- and third-degree murder and manslaughter."

Think prosecutors will figuratively ram it up his ass at trial?  ... Or, allow the jackbooted bastard to skate.

Another police chief disgraces himself.  ABC News reports:

"An Alabama police chief who was fired after his arrest on drug charges is now accused of rape and incest."

Never ends, does it?

"News outlets report that Brian "Scott" Martin was indicted Dec. 6 in St. Clair County on charges of sodomy, rape, incest and distributing an illegal substance to a minor. According to the indictment, the former Lipscomb police chief raped a family member "incapable of consent by reason of being physically helpless or mentally incapacitated."

How about that?  Couldn't be, could it?

"Martin was originally charged with two misdemeanors after police found marijuana and two bongs in his patrol car in July. He was fired the following month."

Wasn't quite through, however.  LOL.  Get this:

"He was taken into custody Dec. 21 after his arrest for a DUI in Pell City."

Nothing quite like stellar policing, is there?  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Martin tells AL.com that "all of that stuff is not true."

Think so?

The Daily Trib reports:

"The Llano Police Department and Texas Department of Public Safety troopers responded to a call regarding a person barricaded in an RV at a residential park on East Tarrant a little after 6 a.m. Sunday. At some point, a trooper fired at the suspect, who was armed with a machete, hitting the individual. The suspect, identified as Warren Jay Beaubien, 49, died at the scene."

Who were the officers involved?

KXAN reports:

"A DPS trooper shot and killed a man who was armed with a machete in Llano County Sunday morning, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety. DPS and the Llano Police Department responded to a barricaded person at 600 Bessemer Ave just after 6:15 a.m. The address DPS reported is near the intersection of East Young and Ford Street, however neighbors said the place the suspect ultimately barricaded himself is closer to East Tarrant Street.

"The Hill Country Scanner had a reporter Tom Suarez at the scene when the incident happened Sunday morning. He said the incident began when the man with the machete -- who was believed to be squatting at J &D's RV Roost -- got into a knife fight with another resident at the RV park. According to the Hill Country Scanner, when law enforcement arrived, the man with the machete barricaded himself in his trailer. Llano Police officers, Llano County Sheriff's deputies, and DPS troopers all surrounded the trailer, and began taking down planks from the gate in front of it to access the door. At some point while they were in the process of breaking through the fence, the man burst through the door of the trailer, swinging the machete back and forth at law enforcement, Suarez said. It was after that point Suarez said he saw the man holding the machete get shot in the eye, he died immediately on scene. The fire department had been called to spray water at the trailer in hopes of getting the man to exit, but by the time they arrived he had already been shot."

Why weren't identities of all officers promptly released as was the identity of the perpertrator?  The public has a right to this information.  ... Right, Sheriff?

As always, when a cop does something heroic and/or of exceptional benefit to the community, it leads.  Always.  NBC News reports:

"A New York City police officer is receiving praise for using non-lethal force to fend off a group of five menacing, visibly drunk men on a subway platform, according to authorities and video of the incident. A video of the confrontation Sunday taped by a bystander and posted on social media shows Officer Syed Ali shouting repeatedly, "Stand back. I don't want to hurt you," as the men approached him in unison. The officer brandished his baton, but does not appear to have reached for his service revolver."

That's heroic.  Could have gotten himself killed.  Five against one are not good odds.  Even though the bastards were drunk.

"His apparent de-escalation of the incident came as some critics of police around the country are urging greater use of non-lethal tactics when possible."

Certainly, a good idea when possible.  In this particular case, however, might have been wiser to have brandished his firearm.  Especially, on a subway platform where he could have been thrown onto the tracks.

"Officer Ali showed restraint & discipline in how he de-escalated the situation," New York City Councilman Chaim Deutsch, who sits on the council's transportation committee, tweeted. He showed "quick action to defend civilians and himself against five individuals attacking on a subway platform."

Heroic.  Uncommon valor.

"Ali's union also praised the "courageous" officer and said the incident could have had a much different, tragic outcome."

Indeed, certainly could have.

“There’s is no telling how much damage these mopes would have done to that courageous police officer had he not been equipped to handle them," Patrick Lynch, president of the city Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, said in a statement. "Had it gone the other way we might have had a seriously injured or dead police officer."

No question.

"The confrontation began when a woman reported at 10:30 p.m. Sunday that she was being sexually harassed by a group of men as she waited for an F train on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, police said. After Officer Ali, on a solo foot patrol, told the five men to leave the station, they became combative and ganged up on him, police said."

Goddamned drunken cowards.  Gutless bastards.

"Ali kicked at least two of the men as they approached him, the video showed. One of the men stumbled into the tracks during the confrontation before Ali radioed for power to be cut from the tracks to keep away any trains that might hit the man, police said. Other first responders arrived to rescue the man on the tracks and to take his four cohorts into custody, police said. Next day, the five men were found at the same station and ticketed for loitering, authorities said. To the chagrin of police union officials, however, they were as of Wednesday not prosecuted for Sunday's confrontation with Ali. "It’s wrong that they were not charged for attacking him," Lynch said."

Seems to have been a mistake made by police, not prosecutors:

"A representative for the Manhattan district attorney told NBC News that the men were only booked for loitering, and thus prosecutors had no basis to charge them with any more serious crime. "They were not arrested for anything having to do with the officer, and we did not know that they were suspected of anything other than sleeping on the subway on Dec 24," said Danny Frost, a spokesman for the district attorney. "If police had charged them for the conduct in the video or even alerted us that they were involved in a previous altercation with an officer, we would not have declined to prosecute," Frost said. Two of the five men had outstanding warrants and were kept in custody after Monday's arrests, the deputy chief of staff to City Council member Deutsch said."

Need to be prosecuted for assaulting the officer.  Officer Ali is certainly second to none.  Uncommon valor.  Hat's off.

... Hey, Sheriff?  Is it true Llano County Attorney Becky Lange has advised you to stay out of the "Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764" fiasco?  That right, Bill?  Isn't that obstruction of justice?  Also true your deputies have advised the Bolens to accept the status quo and not force the no-trespassing issue with Greene?  If so, isn't that also obstruction and official oppression?  When will you do your job, Bill?  As an elected official, you answer to the public, forget?  -- No honor?  ... No honor at all?  If the foregoing allegations are indeed true, didn't you swear an oath to uphold the law and Constitution?  Why aren't you doing so?  No guts?

Your deputy has been accused of abusing authority.  What action have you taken other than ignore the complaint?  Why aren't both Rodriguez and the County Attorney under criminal investigation?  The County Attorney appears to be obstructing justice, accepting the word of Greene in lieu of two surveyor companies who strongly assert otherwise.  Both the County Attorney and District Attorney have ignored complaints.  Par for the course in Llano County, isn't it?  Failed to do their jobs.  No surprise there, right, Bill?  Both receiving 'special consideration' up to and/or including a bribe from Greene?  Regardless, clearly, no justice in Nazi Llano County.  Bottom line?  Desperate need for an outside criminal investigation.  Conveniently, forget?  This County is ruled by men, certainly not rule of law and the United States Constitution.

Precisely, why there is desperate need for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, and prosecute criminal law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose only mandate would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.  Until that happens, the criminal bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole County will continue to do as they please.

Re:  Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764

Counselor:

As you're well aware, we have an outrageously corrupt, abusive, achingly inept Llano County Sheriff's Office here in Nazi Llano County.  Worse, you and your office aid and abet these SS jackbooted bastards in black.  The issue at the moment is the same it's been the last six months.

How is it two surveyor companies, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, even the goddamned Sheriff himself now states Kingsland resident James Berardi owns the lots in contention all these months?

Yet, you ludicrously assert that's not the County's legal position.  It's not?  Why not?  You claim you're not a real estate expert.  Rather than accept the advice of two surveyor companies, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, and even the Sheriff himself, you've inexplicably chosen to follow the advice of property owner Johnny Greene, -- who conveniently happens to be reportedly in the oil industry.

Question to be asked.  Could you have received any 'consideration' in return, -- up to and including a bribe?  Only way to know for sure is for the District Attorney to conduct a criminal investigation.  Apparently, there has been none.  If not, why not?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to this Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.

Our achingly useless, worthless, gutless Sheriff has ignored an email vis a vis the damage this jackbooted thug is responsible for.  Interestingly, his fellow officers believe him to be an idiot.  Yet, the Sheriff continued to defend this piece of human excrement until he realized  this entire fiasco would not be swept under the carpet.

Rodriguez is indeed an idiot.  Would you believe this piece of crap ordered the motor home to be moved on to an unmarked unused Llano County road? That motor home has indeed been moved back to where it was parked before Rodriguez forced it to be moved.  Why hasn't the County paid for the cost of moving it back?  To say nothing of the damage.

Equally pointedly, why is it the County has allowed Theresa Ahrens to park and live in her tiny cottage on that very same road?  Why hasn't she been evicted by the County?  Why was she assessed taxes on an adjacent improvement she doesn't own?

Why is it, Counselor, Johnny Greene is paying for the attorney retained by Ms. Ahrens?  Is Greene attempting to make this all go away by bribery?  Greene has also informed Berardi he is going to sue.  For what?  Has Greene lost his mind?

What about Wells who installed a $4500 septic system on a lot turns out he does not own as a result of Greene, an outrageously inept County, to say nothing of the Llano County Attorney who remains equally determinedly clueless?

How about Bolen who hasn't a pot to piss in, but was nonetheless f--ked over by Greene to say nothing of an egregiously inept County, to say nothing of you and your goddamned equally incompetent office?

None of this is going away, Counselor, -- any time soon.  Will not be swept under the carpet as all the other crap going on in this hell hole County.  Not a chance.  Expect a full expose in this publication whether or not this outrageous fiasco finally gets resolved.  Including full public exposure of both the Sheriff and his jackbooted thug.

Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.  Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.

Who are they, Sheriff?  Their past history?  An ongoing investigation remains a lame bullshit excuse.  How can you and your goons be trusted when you refuse to disclose information?  One hundred forty weeks.  Especially, your egregious failure to disclose the identity of the officers who pulled the trigger.  To cover your sorry ass, Sheriff?  Those of your thugs?  The people have a right to know what happened, how it went down.  You don't understand that, Sheriff?  Sadly, clearly, you answer to no one.  Including taxpayers.  Especially, taxpayers.

Until you and your goons come clean, doubt will remain this was indeed a good shoot.  The longer you drag your feet, the greater the doubt.  Think not?  Wake up.  Your credibility has tanked.  Isn't getting any better as this bullshit continues unabated.  One hundred forty weeks.   Still no identification of the officers involved  ... Can't get your stories straight?  In line?  Discrepancy between LCSO and DPS? Wake up, Sheriff.  The public no longer buys the bullshit.  No longer trusts you.  On this and many, many other issues.  You have no credibility.  Absolutely, none.

Readers, this is but one of about four other highly questionable killings by law enforcement in Llano County in the last decade or so.  There was one within the City of Llano, another in a field near Fuzzy's Corner, Buchanan Dam, yet another in Point Tella, Buchanan Dam, still another in Tow.  If there are any others I may have neglected to mention, kindly email.

It's time the public be fully informed.  -- Know what we're dealing with here and how 'law' 'enforcement' operates in this hell hole County.  If these jackbooted bastards are not reined in, the life lost could be yours courtesy of a law enforcement system that is no longer accountable to anyone.  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

The Sheriff seems to have no clue the people who pay him and his goons are entitled to know whom is killing whom and why.  This shit always seems to be swept under the carpet.  Ignored.  The attitude of these jackbooted sons of bitches is trust us.  They can't be.  They've lied too many times.  Refuse to be accountable to anyone.  We live in a goddamned fascist police-state where law enforcement does as it pleases. Usually, with impunity.  That has to change.

The Texas Rangers have become rubber stamp to atrocities committed by law enforcement.  This also has to change.  No one is holding law enforcement accountable any longer.  No one.  No one in state or federal government. This is precisely why Ferguson triggered such an uproar.  There was no justice there.  None here.  None anywhere.  Officers are abusive, corrupt, inept.

Falsely ticket and arrest the innocent to line County coffers.  Court fees charged continue to be horrendous.  -- Aren't taxpayers already looted to pay these costs?  Aren't you boys not only double f--king those falsely accused, but taxpayers also hellaciously looted to pay the very same costs?   Yet, the criminal bastards in power in Llano continue to pile on the fees. This is nothing more than goddamned bullshit.  This money finds its way into the pockets of the corrupt, abusive bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole.

Would you believe the last time the Sheriff's Office happened to be 'audited' during the Garrett regime, reportedly, auditors couldn't figure out what went where and why? Yet, surprise, surprise.  Nothing was done.  There has to be transparency.  There is none.  Why would these thieving bastards want any?  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  How else could they so easily steal and loot with virtual impunity?  Worse, this reinforces jackbooted power in this goddamned, godforsaken hell hole County.

The public has a right to know the histories of the Sheriff's goons.  Clearly, the Sheriff doesn't think so.  That is, where they came from.  Why they left where they were.  What is happening here is the Sheriff is using 'personnel matters' as a convenient excuse to deny the public access to the history of outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept officers who are no more than criminals themselves.

He's protecting his outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards.  Worse, the standards imposed by sheriff's offices statewide with the exception of metropolitan counties are well below those of DPS and city police departments.  Why?  So the corruption, abuse, ineptness, and outright stealing can continue unabated?  This has to change.  ... Can't have that, can we?  Sheriff?  TL?

The public should understand Llano County authorities have it all sewn up.  Did you know the Texas Attorney General does not have the authority to investigate and prosecute County authorities on his own?  The District Attorney has to call for an investigation by the Texas Rangers.  Then, the State can prosecute if it so chooses.

Consequently?  Guess what?  Nothing will happen.  Nothing ever does.  The goddamned corruption continues unabated until you, the public, pressure authorities.  Precisely, why we all enjoy the 'best' government money can buy. Literally.  Without question, the corrupt, abusive, inept sons of bitches are all bought and paid for.  Firmly clamped to the taxpayer tit.  Dependent on money looted from innocent citizens caught in their web.  Phony fines and court costs cleverly designed to f--k the innocent and enrich the pieces of shit who falsely believe they run and own Llano County. Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

Interestingly, the former Sheriff and District Attorney were reportedly forced to retire after an outrageous scandal involving a drunk driving police officer from out of town.  Including special treatment of the drunken son of a bitch that no other citizen caught doing the same would have been afforded.  An honest, honorable Llano County Deputy suffered the consequences. Forget?  Great officers do not last in this hell hole County. ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

With all ongoing abuse in this goddamned County, one thing remains for damned sure.  We're just getting started, Sheriff.  You will continue to be exposed for whom and what you and your corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards have become, truly are, not what you phonies purport to be, that is, how you continue to f--k over a public you've falsely sworn to protect and defend.  -- Exposure, the only way short of an unwanted dreaded revolution to force desperately needed change in a goddamned fascist police-state. The Fourth Reich.

Have your jackbooted thugs been tested for steroids, Sheriff?  If you've nothing to hide, Bill, release the results of all drug testing.  'Personnel matters?'  Bullshit.  Looted taxpayers have the right to know.  They're footing the bill for all this goddamned corruption, abuse, ineptness. When will you and the boys end the shakedowns?  Looting of the innocent to line County coffers?  No honor at all?

Where are your swastika armbands, you fascist son of a bitch?  You and your thugs remain out of uniform.  Once again, Sheriff, and ad nauseum, did you and/or your goons pressure Schilling to exit the race?  Did you steal the election? If so, an aggressively stupid, achingly gutless public gets what it truly deserves.  One of the most corrupt, abusive, inept 'law' 'enforcement' agencies in our formerly great country.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Horrendous problem in law enforcement.  Exigent.  Ongoing.  CNN News reports:

"A Florida deputy came on the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office main radio line early Wednesday to deliver a horrifying update. Deputy Terry Strawn had harmed his family at one home. He harmed another family member at a different location. And he was going to kill himself. A supervisor immediately joined the line to try and calm him down, and three other deputies located Strawn outside a high school in Plant City near Tampa, Sheriff Chad Chronister said Wednesday. Despite efforts to convince him otherwise, the deputy killed himself in front of his colleagues, the sheriff said."

Imagine the lasting effect this had on responding officers.

"The disturbing situation ended with the deaths of the deputy's wife, daughter and granddaughter, the deputy's suicide and the sheriff's call for police everywhere to take issues of mental health more seriously."

Will take far, far more than that.

"We have to change the culture," Chronister said. "We have to make sure everyone knows that it's OK to ask for help. It's not a sign of weakness to say, 'Listen, I'm having a difficult time, I'm having a hard time, I need some help.' "

While that's certainly a good start, it's nowhere near sufficient.  Total revamp and change in the police mentality are absolutely required to say the least.

"The deputy, later identified as 58-year-old Strawn, had been with the sheriff's office since 1991 and retired in 2017, Chronister said. He was hired back this summer in a temporary role as a school security deputy, the sheriff said, after county officials announced a plan to provide armed security at all elementary schools in the wake of February's mass school shooting in Parkland. Strawn had glowing recommendations throughout his training process and job evaluations. Chronister said the department had just offered to hire him on a permanent basis as a full-time deputy sheriff. "(There was) no indication whatsoever that would lead us (or) a prudent and reasonable person that this deputy would ever conduct himself in a manner that he did," he said."

Wake up.  Law enforcement has been out to lunch for decades.  Blind.  Oblivious.  Indifferent.  Not only to abusive behavior perpetrated by its jackbooted goons, but their mental issues as well.

"Sheriff Chronister briefing the media this morning concerning a deputy involved murder-suicide. We are saddened beyond comprehension that this has occurred on our watch. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families as we try [to] work to understand all the details in this case.

"— HCSO (@HCSOSheriff) December 19, 2018The victims have not yet been positively identified. Chronister said investigators were conducting search warrants at the residences and working to piece the case together. He also noted that the deputy alluded to some financial and health issues during his final radio transmission.

"Police said that all students at Plant City High School are safe. Chronister said he believed Strawn carried out the suicide outside the school because it was near one of the residences where he killed a family member. The case is the second murder-suicide from a Hillsborough County sheriff's deputy in the past few months. In September, Deputy Kirk Keithley, 39, shot and killed his wife, Samantha, before killing himself, CNN affiliate WFTS reported. Keithley had been with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office for more than nine years."

Unless things change, expect more of the same.  Like the rest of our formerly great country, law enforcement is deteriorating.  ... Right, Sheriff?

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

The following is inexplicable.  CNN News reports:

"A woman held on a $300 bond for five months died Friday in a Texas jail, and the 61-year-old's family was unaware she had been arrested until it was time for them to collect the body. Janice Dotson-Stephens had been arrested on July 18 in Bexar County and charged with criminal trespassing. Her daughter, Michelle Dotson, said the Bexar County Sheriff's Office did not have a next of kin listed for her mother. "We asked about her being in jail for so long. We are still getting clarity on the chain of events," she said. The sheriff's office said Dotson-Stephens died of natural causes. According to the Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office, the cause of death was atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, or coronary artery disease. They also listed schizoaffective disorder, a chronic mental health condition characterized by symptoms of schizophrenia, as a contributing factor."

More appalling?  Get this:

"Dotson-Stephen's daughter said her mother had a history of mental illness and had been arrested before. "There was a cycle that repeated itself. She'd be fine. She'd be on her meds. Then something would happen, and she would go off her meds," Michelle Dotson said. "She would maybe leave or disappear. There were times she may have ended up in jail. But usually, they would do a psychiatric evaluation and take her to the state hospital." The death is being investigated by the Converse Police Department as part of the Sandra Bland Act. That act mandates an independent law enforcement agency investigate the death of an inmate in jail. It also directs county jails to send people with mental illness and substance abuse issues toward treatment options. The act is named for Sandra Bland, who died in 2015 after being found hanging from a noose in her cell at the Waller County Jail in Texas, where she was incarcerated after allegedly assaulting an officer during traffic stop. According to court records, Dotson-Stephens waived a hearing on July 23 and refused to be interviewed several times after her arrest. In August, she was ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation after she refused to appear in court. Her case status shows she was awaiting that evaluation. Michelle Dotson says the family is trying to find out why her mother was in jail for so long and why they didn't know about it. "We're taking it step by step. We don't want to make accusations. We're busy making preparations for my mom."

Massive failure of the system.

Another piss poor example of police brutality.  This time, -- to one of their own.   CBS News reports:

"Newly released video shows a former Texas police officer who claimed she was fired for accusing her sergeant of sexual harassment hurt by another officer during an office retirement party. Video given to CBS affiliate KHOU-TV shows former Huntsville officer Kimberly Webb knocked down, then holding her right arm. According to medical records, Webb's right arm bruised after her sergeant used a foot sweep that made Webb fall on a desk. Video also showed the man demonstrate the move after Webb fell. In Webb's federal lawsuit filed earlier this year, she accused the city, its police department and police chief of firing her in retaliation for complaints she made against the same sergeant seen in the video. KHOU reported that Webb's dishonorable discharge from Huntsville PD in 2017 suggests she was an insubordinate, dishonest officer. But months after being sworn in, Webb claimed fellow officers harassed her with sexual jokes and unwanted advances." I got told it was like a contact sport," she told KHOU in February. "If you're in a contact sport, you know there is a certain level of activity that is going to come with that sport. So suck it up and move on." A year later, her supervisor sent lewd text messages asking to see her breasts and more, Webb claimed."

No principles.  No honor.  No heart.  No soul.

This crap goes on all over our formerly great country.  Needs to end.  If you're an honest deputy in the Llano County Sheriff's Office and have knowledge of any and all such malfeasance, contact me.  I  will protect your identity.  Until this sees the light of day, there will be no desperately needed change.  Only more of the very same abuse and corruption.  The problem is indeed top-down, bottom-up, right, Sheriff"

Unadulterated, blatant ongoing horse shit.  ... Right, Bill?  F--k these jackbooted bastards.  Aren't worth a crap.  Continually abrogate their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Includes not only deputies, but the brass as well.  No principles.  No honor.  Lying, conniving, abusive, murderous jackbooted thieving thugs.  The American Civil Liberties Union needs to step up and represent the victims of abusive law enforcement.

To say nothing of innocent civilians all across our formerly great country who are victimized by abusive police.  Need far better representation than a public defender.  Forget?  It's how the bastards in government line government coffers.  All too often, looting the innocent.  Those on the bottom of the food chain.  ... Right, Sheriff?

No justice.  The American Way.  Nazi America.  When is this shit finally going to end?  All of it.  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred forty weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.

Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.  Who the hell are they?

When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff?  Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up. Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for?

Ferociously pointedly, why are the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

No justice.  No true accountability.  Same old jackbooted nazi bullshit.  ... Right, Sheriff?  NBC News reports:

"A dancing FBI agent who accidentally shot a man in the leg after doing a backflip at a Denver bar will avoid jail time after pleading guilty Friday to third-degree assault."

This case was covered earlier in this publication and elsewhere.

"Chase Bishop, 30, struck a plea deal with prosecutors and was sentenced to two years of probation, The Denver Post reported . He also must pay more than $1,600 in fines and court costs."

Not good enough.  Nowhere near.  This guy is an idiot.  Has no business in law enforcement.  Could have killed someone.

"Footage of the June 2 shooting at Mile High Spirits and Distillery shows Bishop dancing in the middle of a circle of people before doing the backflip. The gun falls to the ground mid-flip and discharges as Bishop picks it up. The agent then puts the gun into a waistband holster and walks away with his hands up. "My whole goal in life is to care, protect and serve people," Bishop said in court Friday. "I never expected the result of my actions to lead to something like this."

You're too goddamned aggressively stupid to be in law enforcement.  Present an exigent threat to the public.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"He pleaded not guilty in November to second-degree assault, which carries a penalty of up to 16 years in prison."

Why the hell wasn't he sentenced to prison?  -- Joe Blow next door would have gotten it rammed up his ass.  Why special treatment for a jackbooted bastard in law enforcement?  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Bishop, who will serve his probation in Georgia, was in Denver on FBI business and was off-duty at the time of the shooting. FBI spokeswoman Kelsey Pietranton declined to say if he would continue to work at the agency."

Jesus Christ.  F--king unbelievable.  What are you waiting for?  This idiot to kill someone?

Does anyone truly give a shit about the victim?  Get this:

"The man who was shot, Tom Reddington, 24, spoke emotionally in court about how he lost his job at an Amazon warehouse after the shooting, his chronic pain and his concern that he may never be able to run again. "I have done months of physical therapy," he said. "I have sought counseling. However, being in public, especially seeing law enforcement with guns, makes me very uncomfortable." Reddington added that he does not hold a personal grudge against Bishop. "I've done stupid things at bars to impress girls, too," he said."

No equivalence.  None.  The idiot who shot you is a law enforcement officer.  Certainly, should have known better.  ... Right, Sheriff?

Yet, another needless death of a kid courtesy of the jackbooted bastards in the Border Patrol.  NPR reports:

"An 8-year-old boy from Guatemala has died in government custody, U.S. Customs and Border Protection says. The boy died just before midnight on Monday, at a hospital in Alamogordo, N.M. He is the second child this month to die in CBP custody after being apprehended by the agency. The Guatemalan Foreign Service has identified the boy as Felipe Gomez Alonso, NPR's Carrie Kahn reports.  Felipe was initially sent to Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center with his father during the day on Monday, according to a statement from CBP. Hospital staff diagnosed the boy with a common cold and a fever, and released him in the mid-afternoon with prescriptions for antibiotics and ibuprofen. He was transferred back to the hospital later that evening, after he began vomiting, and he died hours later. In its initial statement, CBP had said that the boy died after midnight on Tuesday, but the agency later adjusted the time to late Monday.  CBP says it does not know the cause of Felipe's death."

Much more on this as further information becomes available.  One thing is for sure at this time.  Detainees are not properly housed and cared for by the Border Patrol.  Squalid, egregiously inhumane conditions.

As always, when law enforcement does something heroic and/or of exceptional benefit to the community, it leads.  Always.  AP reports:

"Two Missouri officers saved the life of a 6-month-old girl whose father walked into their police station and said he had just drowned his daughter, authorities say. Greenwood police Chief Greg Hallgrimson and Cpl. Tom Calhoun rushed to a pond where the man said he had drowned his daughter Monday and pulled her out, performed CPR and warmed her up until she started breathing, said Lt. Aaron Fordham, who called the baby's survival a "miracle."

Hat's off to these fine officers.  Best of the best.

"He said the father, 28-year-old Jonathon Stephen Zicarelli, showed no emotion when he stunned officers with his report that he had left his daughter in an icy pond on the west side of Greenwood, which is about 20 miles southeast of Kansas City. While Fordham stayed with Zicarelli, Hallgrimson and Calhoun ran to the pond. They found the unconscious baby floating face up, lethargic and her skin a lifeless color, The Kansas City Star reported. She had mud in her eye and grass and water in her mouth, and her lungs were full of water. Officers estimate she had been in the pond more than 10 minutes. Calhoun waded into the thigh-deep water and rushed the girl to the bank. He cleared the water from her lungs and began CPR, and the infant began breathing within minutes, Fordham said. Calhoun and Hallgrimson removed the baby's wet clothes and wrapped her in the chief's shirt to warm her. Paramedics arrived and took the child to a nearby hospital. "There was absolutely someone watching over that child today," he said."

Indeed, these fine officers, -- and the Creator.

"The hospital told police that the girl was stable and in good health as of Monday afternoon. She was being treated for hypothermia. "The news came down through the chain and there was a huge sigh of relief," Fordham said. Prosecutors have charged Zicarelli with first-degree domestic assault. According to the charging documents, Zicarelli told investigators that he plotted for more than 24 hours to kill his daughter because he wanted to make things easier for his wife. He also said he was stressed by the holidays and trying to provide for his family. He said he walked down to the water three times before deciding to place the child in the water and watch her sink."

Don't want a kid?  Can't afford one?  Aren't qualified to be a parent?  Don't have one.  Use birth control.  If birth control fails, abort or give the kid up for adoption.

Parasailers rise to the occasion.  CBS News reports:

"The military is investigating what caused a fighter jet to slam into the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Hawaii Wednesday during a training exercise with the Hawaii Air National Guard. The pilot, a civilian contractor, safely ejected from the plane seconds before it crashed but is in serious condition after suffering traumatic injuries. A group of parasailers in a nearby boat witnessed the chaos unfold and immediately took action. "We heard this loud boom and then we saw the pilot eject from the plane and then we see his parachute come out and then the plane went straight into the water," said one witness."

The pilot was extremely lucky:

"Mack Ladner, a parasail instructor inside the boat, jumped into the water to rescue the injured pilot and untangle his parachute. "It was kind of a lot of adrenaline, I didn't, I've never seen anything like that," Ladner said. "When I got in the water, you know, I was asking him like 'are you okay' and he's like yeah my back hurts a little bit from the compression and he had a little blood coming out I think it might have been the impact because I mean he was going pretty fast." The 47-year-old pilot was transferred to a U.S. Coast Guard vessel then rushed to a hospital. The Hawaii Air National Guard temporarily suspended its military exercise, which involved about 800 personnel and 30 planes, following the crash. "It could have turned out a lot worse, it looks like they got him within seconds and I think the only loss is the plane," another witness said. The aircraft took off from the Honolulu Airport, about three miles away from the crash site. Witnesses said the plane could have crashed into nearby buildings if it had not crashed into the water."

While details of the story are not complete, highly likely the pilot did all he could to avoid the buildings by ditching the aircraft in the sea.

... Hey, Sheriff?  Is it true Llano County Attorney Becky Lange has advised you to stay out of the "Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764" fiasco?  That right, Bill?  Isn't that obstruction of justice?  Also true your deputies have advised the Bolens to accept the status quo and not force the no-trespassing issue with Greene?  If so, isn't that also obstruction and official oppression?  When will you do your job, Bill?  As an elected official, you answer to the public, forget?  -- No honor?  ... No honor at all?  If the foregoing allegations are indeed true, didn't you swear an oath to uphold the law and Constitution?  Why aren't you doing so?  No guts?

Your deputy has been accused of abusing authority.  What action have you taken other than ignore the complaint?  Why aren't both Rodriguez and the County Attorney under criminal investigation?  The County Attorney appears to be obstructing justice, accepting the word of Greene in lieu of two surveyor companies who strongly assert otherwise.  Both the County Attorney and District Attorney have ignored complaints.  Par for the course in Llano County, isn't it?  Failed to do their jobs.  No surprise there, right, Bill?  Both receiving 'special consideration' up to and/or including a bribe from Greene?  Regardless, clearly, no justice in Nazi Llano County.  Bottom line?  Desperate need for an outside criminal investigation.  Conveniently, forget?  This County is ruled by men, certainly not rule of law and the United States Constitution.

Precisely, why there is desperate need for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, and prosecute criminal law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose only mandate would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.  Until that happens, the criminal bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole County will continue to do as they please.

Some salient quotes occurring later on in this edition vis a vis unfinished business County officials continue to ignore:

... "Unadulterated, blatant horse shit.  ... Right, Sheriff?  F--k these jackbooted bastards.  Aren't worth a crap.  Continually abrogate their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution.  ... Right, Bill?  No principles.  No honor.  Lying, conniving, abusive, murderous jackbooted thieving thugs.  The American Civil Liberties Union needs to step up and represent the victims of this abusive law enforcement agency.

To say nothing of innocent civilians all across our formerly great country who are victimized by abusive police.  Need far better representation than a public defender.  Forget?  It's how the bastards in government line government coffers.  All too often, looting the innocent.  Those on the bottom of the food chain.  ... Right, Sheriff?

No justice.  The American Way.  Nazi America.  When is this shit finally going to end?  All of it.  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred thirty nine weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.

Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.  Who the hell are they?

When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff?  Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up. Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for?

Ferociously pointedly, why is the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?"

Re:  Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764

Counselor:

The enclosed emails were sent to the Llano County Attorney and Sheriff, respectively, vis a vis the above matter.  Remain unanswered.  The County Attorney appears to be protecting and defending the deputy at behest of Kingsland property owner Johnny Greene.  May have received some consideration from Greene up to and including a bribe.  Are the County Attorney, Greene, and the Deputy under criminal investigation?  If not, why not?

Re:  Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764

Counselor:

As you're well aware, we have an outrageously corrupt, abusive, achingly inept Llano County Sheriff's Office here in Nazi Llano County.  Worse, you and your office aid and abet these SS jackbooted bastards in black.  The issue at the moment is the same it's been the last six months.

How is it two surveyor companies, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, even the goddamned Sheriff himself now states Kingsland resident James Berardi owns the lots in contention all these months?

Yet, you ludicrously assert that's not the County's legal position.  It's not?  Why not?  You claim you're not a real estate expert.  Rather than accept the advice of two surveyor companies, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, and even the Sheriff himself, you've inexplicably chosen to follow the advice of property owner Johnny Greene, -- who conveniently happens to be reportedly in the oil industry.

Question to be asked.  Could you have received any 'consideration' in return, -- up to and including a bribe?  Only way to know for sure is for the District Attorney to conduct a criminal investigation.  Apparently, there has been none.  If not, why not?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to this Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.

Our achingly useless, worthless, gutless Sheriff has ignored an email vis a vis the damage this jackbooted thug is responsible for.  Interestingly, his fellow officers believe him to be an idiot.  Yet, the Sheriff continued to defend this piece of human excrement until he realized  this entire fiasco would not be swept under the carpet.

Rodriguez is indeed an idiot.  Would you believe this piece of crap ordered the motor home to be moved on to an unmarked unused Llano County road? That motor home has indeed been moved back to where it was parked before Rodriguez forced it to be moved.  Why hasn't the County paid for the cost of moving it back?  To say nothing of the damage.

Equally pointedly, why is it the County has allowed Theresa Ahrens to park and live in her tiny cottage on that very same road?  Why hasn't she been evicted by the County?  Why was she assessed taxes on an adjacent improvement she doesn't own?

Why is it, Counselor, Johnny Greene is paying for the attorney retained by Ms. Ahrens?  Is Greene attempting to make this all go away by bribery?  Greene has also informed Berardi he is going to sue.  For what?  Has Greene lost his mind?

What about Wells who installed a $4500 septic system on a lot turns out he does not own as a result of Greene, an outrageously inept County, to say nothing of the Llano County Attorney who remains equally determinedly clueless?

How about Bolen who hasn't a pot to piss in, but was nonetheless f--ked over by Greene to say nothing of an egregiously inept County, to say nothing of you and your goddamned equally incompetent office?

None of this is going away, Counselor, -- any time soon.  Will not be swept under the carpet as all the other crap going on in this hell hole County.  Not a chance.  Expect a full expose in this publication whether or not this outrageous fiasco finally gets resolved.  Including full public exposure of both the Sheriff and his jackbooted thug.

Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred thirty nine weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.  Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.

Who are they, Sheriff?  Their past history?  An ongoing investigation remains a lame bullshit excuse.  How can you and your goons be trusted when you refuse to disclose information?  One hundred thirty nine weeks.  Especially, your egregious failure to disclose the identity of the officers who pulled the trigger.  To cover your sorry ass, Sheriff?  Those of your thugs?  The people have a right to know what happened, how it went down.  You don't understand that, Sheriff?  Sadly, clearly, you answer to no one.  Including taxpayers.  Especially, taxpayers.

Until you and your goons come clean, doubt will remain this was indeed a good shoot.  The longer you drag your feet, the greater the doubt.  Think not?  Wake up.  Your credibility has tanked.  Isn't getting any better as this bullshit continues unabated.  One hundred thirty nine weeks.   Still no identification of the officers involved  ... Can't get your stories straight?  In line?  Discrepancy between LCSO and DPS? Wake up, Sheriff.  The public no longer buys the bullshit.  No longer trusts you.  On this and many, many other issues.  You have no credibility.  Absolutely, none.

Readers, this is but one of about four other highly questionable killings by law enforcement in Llano County in the last decade or so.  There was one within the City of Llano, another in a field near Fuzzy's Corner, Buchanan Dam, yet another in Point Tella, Buchanan Dam, still another in Tow.  If there are any others I may have neglected to mention, kindly email.

It's time the public be fully informed.  -- Know what we're dealing with here and how 'law' 'enforcement' operates in this hell hole County.  If these jackbooted bastards are not reined in, the life lost could be yours courtesy of a law enforcement system that is no longer accountable to anyone.  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

The Sheriff seems to have no clue the people who pay him and his goons are entitled to know whom is killing whom and why.  This shit always seems to be swept under the carpet.  Ignored.  The attitude of these jackbooted sons of bitches is trust us.  They can't be.  They've lied too many times.  Refuse to be accountable to anyone.  We live in a goddamned fascist police-state where law enforcement does as it pleases. Usually, with impunity.  That has to change.

The Texas Rangers have become rubber stamp to atrocities committed by law enforcement.  This also has to change.  No one is holding law enforcement accountable any longer.  No one.  No one in state or federal government. This is precisely why Ferguson triggered such an uproar.  There was no justice there.  None here.  None anywhere.  Officers are abusive, corrupt, inept.

Falsely ticket and arrest the innocent to line County coffers.  Court fees charged continue to be horrendous.  -- Aren't taxpayers already looted to pay these costs?  Aren't you boys not only double f--king those falsely accused, but taxpayers also hellaciously looted to pay the very same costs?   Yet, the criminal bastards in power in Llano continue to pile on the fees. This is nothing more than goddamned bullshit.  This money finds its way into the pockets of the corrupt, abusive bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole.

Would you believe the last time the Sheriff's Office happened to be 'audited' during the Garrett regime, reportedly, auditors couldn't figure out what went where and why? Yet, surprise, surprise.  Nothing was done.  There has to be transparency.  There is none.  Why would these thieving bastards want any?  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  How else could they so easily steal and loot with virtual impunity?  Worse, this reinforces jackbooted power in this goddamned, godforsaken hell hole County.

The public has a right to know the histories of the Sheriff's goons.  Clearly, the Sheriff doesn't think so.  That is, where they came from.  Why they left where they were.  What is happening here is the Sheriff is using 'personnel matters' as a convenient excuse to deny the public access to the history of outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept officers who are no more than criminals themselves.

He's protecting his outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards.  Worse, the standards imposed by sheriff's offices statewide with the exception of metropolitan counties are well below those of DPS and city police departments.  Why?  So the corruption, abuse, ineptness, and outright stealing can continue unabated?  This has to change.  ... Can't have that, can we?  Sheriff?  TL?

The public should understand Llano County authorities have it all sewn up.  Did you know the Texas Attorney General does not have the authority to investigate and prosecute County authorities on his own?  The District Attorney has to call for an investigation by the Texas Rangers.  Then, the State can prosecute if it so chooses.

Consequently?  Guess what?  Nothing will happen.  Nothing ever does.  The goddamned corruption continues unabated until you, the public, pressure authorities.  Precisely, why we all enjoy the 'best' government money can buy. Literally.  Without question, the corrupt, abusive, inept sons of bitches are all bought and paid for.  Firmly clamped to the taxpayer tit.  Dependent on money looted from innocent citizens caught in their web.  Phony fines and court costs cleverly designed to f--k the innocent and enrich the pieces of shit who falsely believe they run and own Llano County. Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

Interestingly, the former Sheriff and District Attorney were reportedly forced to retire after an outrageous scandal involving a drunk driving police officer from out of town.  Including special treatment of the drunken son of a bitch that no other citizen caught doing the same would have been afforded.  An honest, honorable Llano County Deputy suffered the consequences. Forget?  Great officers do not last in this hell hole County. ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

With all ongoing abuse in this goddamned County, one thing remains for damned sure.  We're just getting started, Sheriff.  You will continue to be exposed for whom and what you and your corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards have become, truly are, not what you phonies purport to be, that is, how you continue to f--k over a public you've falsely sworn to protect and defend.  -- Exposure, the only way short of an unwanted dreaded revolution to force desperately needed change in a goddamned fascist police-state. The Fourth Reich.

Have your jackbooted thugs been tested for steroids, Sheriff?  If you've nothing to hide, Bill, release the results of all drug testing.  'Personnel matters?'  Bullshit.  Looted taxpayers have the right to know.  They're footing the bill for all this goddamned corruption, abuse, ineptness. When will you and the boys end the shakedowns?  Looting of the innocent to line County coffers?  No honor at all?

Where are your swastika armbands, you fascist son of a bitch?  You and your thugs remain out of uniform.  Once again, Sheriff, and ad nauseum, did you and/or your goons pressure Schilling to exit the race?  Did you steal the election? If so, an aggressively stupid, achingly gutless public gets what it truly deserves.  One of the most corrupt, abusive, inept 'law' 'enforcement' agencies in our formerly great country.

Have any information, knowledge of, experience with a purportedly non-profit volunteer clean-up group called Looking Forward In Llano County affiliated with the Llano County Attorney's Office?  Email this publication at libertyinperil@protonmail.com to provide information and/or arrange a meeting to discuss this matter.  If requested, your identity will be protected.  The question is quite simple.  Is this group what it claims to be and on the level?

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following. It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

In follow up to the last several editions, NBC News reports:

"The investigation of the fatal shooting of a black man by a police officer inside Alabama’s largest shopping mall is now in the hands of the state attorney general, he announced Thursday. Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall said at a news conference that his office will oversee the case to prevent the appearance of any possible conflicts involving local officials over the fatal shooting of Emantic “EJ” Bradford Jr., whose death on Thanksgiving night has led to nearly-daily protests."

Not good enough.  Nowhere near.  Only solution to this ongoing fiasco in law enforcement is creation of a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, and try corrupt, abusive officers, prosecutors, and judges in a special court that would adjudicate only these cases.  Total independence.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"The officer, whose name has not been released by authorities, mistook Bradford for the gunman in a shooting that happened moments earlier inside the Riverchase Galleria in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover, officials have said. The officer who shot Bradford was the charging officer in about 20 cases involving local prosecutors in Jefferson County, where the man was killed, according to Marshall. Jefferson County’s newly elected district attorney, Danny Carr, has “personal relationships” with some of the protesters calling for the officer to be prosecuted, Marshall said in a letter to Carr that was released by the attorney general’s office. Marshall said that while he did not believe any conflict existed, having the attorney general’s office assume control of the case would prevent any problems."

Jesus Christ.  No conflict?  You've got to be kidding.  Kangaroo justice in a fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.

"Aside from the review of Bradford’s death, Marshall said his office would take over the attempted-murder case against the man ultimately arrested in the earlier shooting, which left another man wounded."

Stinks to high heaven.  LOL.

"The state also will investigate the wounding of a 12-year-old girl who was shot in the back, Marshall said. Authorities have described her as an innocent bystander. An attorney for Bradford’s family had no immediate comment on the state assuming control of the investigation. Attorneys for the man who was wounded and the suspect charged with attempted murder, Erron Brown, also did not immediately return messages seeking comment."

Nazi justice.  Kangaroo justice.  That is, no justice at all.

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

More of the same old gutless horse shit.  Refusal to take personal responsibility by a jackbooted bastard in blue.  CBS News reports:

"A judge has rejected a deputy's claim that he had no duty to confront the gunman during the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Refusing to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the parent of a victim, Broward Circuit Judge Patti Englander Henning found after a hearing Wednesday that ex-deputy Scot Peterson did have a duty to protect those inside the school where 17 people died and 17 were wounded on Feb. 14.  Video and other evidence shows Peterson, the only armed officer at the school, remained outside while shots rang out. The negligence lawsuit was filed by Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed in the attack. He said it made no sense for Peterson's attorneys to argue that a sworn law enforcement officer with a badge and a gun had no requirement to go inside. "Then what is he doing there?" Pollack said after the ruling. "He had a duty. I'm not going to let this go. My daughter, her death is not going to be in vain."

Think the following isn't perversely convoluted 'reasoning' by a shyster?  Get this:

"Peterson's attorney, Michael Piper, said he understands that people might be offended or outraged at his client's defense, but he argued that as a matter of law, the deputy had no duty to confront the shooter. Peterson did not attend the hearing. "There is no legal duty that can be found," Piper said. "At its very worst, Scot Peterson is accused of being a coward. That does not equate to bad faith."

Say what?  Equates to no faith.  No guts.  No honor.  No principles.

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Out of control ICE jackbooted bastards.  NPR reports:

"The Association of Legal Aid Attorneys along with dozens of unions, immigrant rights organizations, and community groups held a rally on December 7, 2017 at Brooklyn Borough Hall to call on the Office of Court Administration and Chief Judge Janet DiFiore to prohibit Immigration & Customs Enforcement agents from entering state courthouses, and to end coordination with ICE. For 25 years, schools, hospitals and places of worship have effectively been off-limits to federal immigration officers. Now, a group of dozens of former state and federal judges is asking U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to add courthouses to the list of "sensitive locations" where their officers generally do not go."

No longer.  The jackbooted bastards are ubiquitous, -- like flies on shit.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Judges simply cannot do their jobs — and our justice system cannot function effectively — if victims, defendants, witnesses, and family members do not feel secure in accessing the courthouse," said the judges in a letter Wednesday to Acting Director Ronald Vitiello. "ICE's reliance on immigration arrests in courthouses instills fear in clients and deters them from seeking justice in a court building." The judges cited reports of a marked increase in ICE activity in courts over the past two years. One study by the Immigrant Defense Project found a 1200 percent increase in arrests and attempted arrests across New York state from 2016 to 2017. Arrests have been documented in dozens of states, the judges wrote, affecting survivors of domestic violence, parents seeking to protect their children from unsafe living conditions, and even victims of human trafficking."

Matters not to a jackbooted bastard in uniform who gets his cookies off abusing authority.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"We know firsthand that for courts to effectively do justice, ensure public safety, and serve their communities, the public must be able to access courthouses safely and without fear of retribution," the judges said. "For many, however, ICE's courthouse arrests have made courts places to avoid."

"In a January memo, ICE said it would limit its civil immigration enforcement actions inside courthouses to only certain people, such as gang members, those with criminal convictions, or people who pose national security threats. ICE officers won't go after family members of arrest targets unless they try to intervene. Officers "should exercise sound judgment when enforcing federal law and make substantial efforts to avoid unnecessarily alarming the public," the memo said."

Not good enough.  Nowhere near.

"That assurance didn't go far enough, the judges wrote. "Following nearly two years of high profile ICE courthouse activity, only unequivocal guarantees and protections will restore the public's confidence that it can safely pursue justice in our nation's courts."

No question.  Law enforcement cannot be trusted.  Lies like hell.  Yet, it's legal for them to do so.  Not so for their victims.  Goddamned double standard.  Not to mention legalized murder of innocent unarmed civilians, legalized theft vis a vis asset forfeiture, etc..  List can go on and on.  Precisely, one of the reasons why these outrageously corrupt bastards have zero credibility.  Cannot be trusted.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"In an FAQ on its web site, ICE says that "courthouse arrests seem to be occurring more frequently" because some law enforcement agencies no longer work with ICE agents as easily as they used to. "The increasing unwillingness of some jurisdictions to cooperate with ICE in the safe and orderly transfer of targeted aliens inside their prisons and jails has necessitated additional at-large arrests."

Unadulterated, blatant horse shit.  ... Right, Sheriff?  F--k these jackbooted bastards.  Aren't worth a crap.  Continually abrogate their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution.  ... Right, Bill?  No principles.  No honor.  Lying, conniving, abusive, murderous jackbooted thieving thugs.  The American Civil Liberties Union needs to step up and represent the victims of this abusive law enforcement agency.

To say nothing of innocent civilians all across our formerly great country who are victimized by abusive police.  Need far better representation than a public defender. Forget?  It's how the bastards in government line government coffers.  All too often, looting the innocent.  Those on the bottom of the food chain.  ... Right, Sheriff?

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for?

Ferociously pointedly, why is the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Clearly, not all cops are criminal jackbooted bastards.  There are a few willing to stand up, do the right thing.  CBS New reports:

"The Miami Beach Police Department says it is investigating footage released by one of its own officers showing a fellow officer sucker-punching an unarmed black man at a restaurant Dec. 3. Attorney Michael Pizzi emailed the video obtained by his client, Miami Beach Police Officer Frederick Dominguez, to police and city leaders Wednesday. Pizzi says Dominguez wasn't on the scene at the Pelican restaurant in Miami Beach when the incident occurred, but was able to obtain the video, which is a cellphone recording of a body cam video that is apparently playing on another screen."

Hat's off, Officer Dominguez.  You're a desperately needed credit to the badge and your profession.  A breath of fresh air.

"The video shows a man sitting a table at a restaurant before getting up and walking around a menu stand near where some officers are gathered, gesturing with his hand. Someone can be heard saying, "Watch yourself, dog." The man approaches one of the officers and says, "What, what?" The officer is then seen grabbing him with his left hand and violently punching him with his right fist and the man falls to the ground. The video doesn't show what led up to the encounter. According to a police report obtained by the Miami Herald, officers were called to the restaurant because the man was acting irate, refusing to leave and yelling expletives at two women. CBS Miami identifies the officer seen in the video as Adriel Dominguez, who is not related to the officer accusing him. The Miami Herald identified the person who was punched as 35-year-old Lowell Poitier, a homeless man from Orlando who had a string of arrests and domestic violence charges in the Jacksonville area."

The victim's criminal history is irrelevant to the sucker punch by the jackbooted bastard in blue.

"In a statement Wednesday, Miami Beach Police Chief Dan Oates said he was made aware of the incident Wednesday and said it was "obviously a very serious matter." He said he directed his internal affairs unit to immediately launch an investigation, notified the Miami-Dade State Attorney's office and relieved the officer of his patrol duties."

Did the right thing.

"Pizzi, who also provided a copy of the video to CBS News, said his client wanted to go public because the incident occurred in front of multiple other officers more than a week ago, none of whom reported it."

Jesus Christ.  Pathetic.  Appalling.  No principles.  No honor.  No courage.  Egregious abrogation of their oaths of office.

"It is shocking and horrible that in this day and age a citizen could be brutally assaulted like this in broad daylight on Miami Beach and nobody did anything about it," said Pizzi, who has requested whistleblower protection for his client, in a statement. "My client is a brave police officer who is standing up for justice for the citizens the police are supposed to protect."

Truly great officer.  Second to none.  Desperately needed.

"Miami Beach police did not immediately respond to a request from CBS News for a copy of the original police report. Pizzi, who has seen the report, said it contradicts the video and amounts to a "bold-faced lie." According to the Miami Herald, the report says the man called the officers "crackers," acted agitated and "appeared as if he wanted to challenge" one of the officers. It says the man said, "what, what," and then "clenched his fist, took a fighting stance and leaned into" the officer's face, and the officer struck the man with his fist because he feared for his safety. The video, however, appears to show the officer pulling the man towards him with his left hand before violently striking him."

Gutless jackbooted bastard in blue.  Goddamned liar to boot.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Par for the course in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Bill?

"Pizzi said his client believes the department puts pressure on him and other officers to be aggressive, and said he doesn't trust internal affairs to handle the investigation. Pizzi said he's calling on the U.S. attorney's office and the state attorney's office to independently investigate and to protect  Dominguez from any possible retaliation for exposing the video."

Absolutely necessary.

"The Herald reports Poitier suffered a cut lip and was treated at a hospital. He was charged with misdemeanor assault on a police officer, resisting arrest without violence and disorderly conduct, and has since been released on bond. The paper was unable to reach him for comment."

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

More of the same.  CNN News reports;

"A 7-year-old Guatemalan girl died last week, hours after she was taken into Border Patrol custody, the Department of Homeland Security said. The Washington Post first reported Thursday that the girl died of dehydration and septic shock last week in El Paso, Texas after she was taken into custody by Border Patrol after crossing illegally with her father into the United States. "Our sincerest condolences go out to the family of the child," the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees Border Patrol, said in a statement. "Border Patrol agents took every possible step to save the child's life under the most trying of circumstances. As fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, we empathize with the loss of any child."

Think so?  An investigation is underway to determine if that is indeed true.

"The girl and her father were part of a large group of migrants who approached Border Patrol agents in a remote area of the New Mexico desert last Thursday, the newspaper reported, citing US Customs and Border Protection records. The child began having seizures hours after she was taken into custody and was airlifted to the Providence Children's Hospital in El Paso, CBP told the Post. She went into cardiac arrest and was revived by medics but the girl couldn't recover and died less than 24 hours later, DHS told CNN in a statement. "Due to patient confidentiality, the hospital is unable to provide any patient information and is referring any inquiries regarding this patient to CBP," said Monique Poessiger, a hospital spokeswoman. A DHS spokesperson said an autopsy will be performed but the results could take several weeks.

"Congressman Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, said late Thursday in a statement he was "devastated by reports that a seven-year-old girl who was taken into Customs and Border Patrol custody died of dehydration and exhaustion. I'll be asking for a full investigation by the Inspector General and Congress into the conditions and circumstances that led to her death." "We can do better as a nation," said Castro, a member of the House Foreign Affairs and House Intelligence Committees. "This is a humanitarian crisis and we have a moral obligation to ensure these vulnerable families can safely seek asylum, which is legal under immigration and international law at our borders," Castro's statement said."

Clearly, Trump and his henchmen couldn't care less.

"Cynthia Pompa, advocacy manager for the ACLU Border Rights Center, in a statement called for "a rigorous investigation into how this tragedy happened and serious reforms to prevent future deaths." "This tragedy represents the worst possible outcome when people, including children, are held in inhumane conditions," the statement said. "Lack of accountability, and a culture of cruelty within CBP have exacerbated policies that lead to migrant deaths. In 2017, migrant deaths increased even as the number of border crossings dramatically decreased."

Both CBP and ICE are jackbooted law enforcement agencies that desperately need to be abolished and replaced.

"Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke of Texas on Thursday called for transparency in the investigation of the child's death. "I am deeply saddened by this girl's death. There must be a complete investigation and the results shared with Congress and the public," he tweeted. The girl's death comes months after a toddler died six weeks after being released from an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement facility in Dilley, Texas. The toddler's mother and her attorneys alleged she contracted a respiratory infection after they arrived to the detention center and ICE provided substandard medical care for the toddler. The toddler and her mother came from Guatemala and were detained after crossing into the US via the Rio Grande."

CBP failed to immediately report the most recent death as required by law and had not identified the girl.  CNN News followed up with this:

"Her name was Jakelin Amei Rosmery Caal Maquin, and she had traveled with her father from a rural indigenous community in Guatemala's Alta Verapaz region. They were among a large group of migrants whom Border Patrol agents detained last week in a remote area of the New Mexico desert. Two days later, 7-year-old Jakelin was dead after becoming violently ill, according to Tekandi Paniagua, Guatemalan general consul in Del Río, Texas.

"Jakelin and her father, Nery Gilberto Caal Cuz, 29, hailed from the Mayan Q'eqchi' community of Raxruha, Paniagua said. After the migrants were detained December 6, Jakelin started vomiting and suffered a high fever en route to a Customs and Border Protection station in Lordsburg, New Mexico, according to Paniagua. She was treated by a medical team, but her condition worsened the following morning. She had seizures and was airlifted to a hospital in El Paso, Texas, where she suffered cardiac arrest. On Saturday morning, Customs and Border Protection agents informed Guatemalan authorities that Jakelin had died, Paniagua said. On Monday, Paniagua met with Jakelin's father, who he said was devastated and was allowed by US authorities to see his daughter one last time. The Washington Post first reported Thursday that the girl died of dehydration and septic shock last week in El Paso after Border Patrol took her into custody when she crossed illegally with her father into the United States."

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Seatbelts on.  CBS News reports:

"Mike Laureano served eight years in the Army National Guard, with a tour in Iraq from 2009 to 2010, but he didn't stop saving lives when he returned home. In 2014, he was walking to class at Wilmington University when he stumbled upon a Be The Match sign-up table and the organization piqued his interest. "They told me exactly what the organization did, how they assisted individuals who have blood disorders and may be in need of bone marrow or blood platelet donations, and just how easy it was to sign up," he told CBS News. "So, that's what I did. I signed up right on the spot. It was just a cheek swab and I went on my way to class."

"Laureano says, in the back of his mind, he always hoped he would match someone. However, he knew that the chances of doing so were slim because his mother had been on the registry for 25 years without a match. Yet almost a year to the day after he signed up, Mike got the call.

"At the time, she was only 4 or 5. And immediately, through my head, I was like, 'Oh my God,'" he told CBS News. "I had a niece who was a little bit older and I'm like, she hasn't really lived at this point. She hasn't been able to grow up, you know, go on adventures. So, anything I could do really." Mike went in for additional testing and learned he was a perfect match. So, a few months later, he was back in the hospital in Delaware, donating bone marrow for a little girl he had never met, more than 2,000 miles away in Utah. "My thought process behind it was, you know, because of how low the chances were to match with somebody, that it just had to be," he told CBS News of the serendipity that he believes brought him and little Adriana Aviles together.

"Thousands of miles away, Adriana's mother – who also would have done anything to give her child a healthy life – was itching to thank Laureano in person. However, donors and recipients aren't permitted to have any contact for at least a year after the surgery. Then, if both parties agree, the organization will share names. And as soon as that happened, she reached out in full force. "It was about 5 in the morning," recalled Laureano. "I remember clearly because I woke up. I looked at my phone and I had a bazillion messages from this woman I didn't know, saying, 'Hey, if this is you, this is the little girl you saved.'" They arranged a reunion for Mike and Adriana. And the little girl broke into tears of gratitude before her hero even arrived."

Doesn't get any better than that, does it?

... Hey, Sheriff?  Is it true Llano County Attorney Becky Lange has advised you to stay out of the "Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764" fiasco?  That right, Bill?  Isn't that obstruction of justice?  Also true your deputies have advised the Bolens to accept the status quo and not force the no-trespassing issue with Greene?  If so, isn't that also obstruction and official oppression?  When will you do your job, Bill?  As an elected official, you answer to the public, forget?  -- No honor?  ... No honor at all?  If the foregoing allegations are indeed true, didn't you swear an oath to uphold the law and Constitution?  Why aren't you doing so?  No guts?

Your deputy has been accused of abusing authority.  What action have you taken other than ignore the complaint?  Why aren't both Rodriguez and the County Attorney under criminal investigation?  The County Attorney appears to be obstructing justice, accepting the word of Greene in lieu of two surveyor companies who strongly assert otherwise.  Both the County Attorney and District Attorney have ignored complaints.  Par for the course in Llano County, isn't it?  Failed to do their jobs.  No surprise there, right, Bill?  Both receiving 'special consideration' up to and/or including a bribe from Greene?  Regardless, clearly, no justice in Nazi Llano County.  Bottom line?  Desperate need for an outside criminal investigation.  Conveniently, forget?  This County is ruled by men, certainly not rule of law and the United States Constitution.

Precisely, why there is desperate need for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, and prosecute criminal law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose only mandate would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.  Until that happens, the criminal bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole County will continue to do as they please.

Some salient quotes occurring later on in this edition vis a vis unfinished business County officials continue to ignore:

... "The American Civil Liberties Union needs to step up and represent this woman.  Needs far better representation than a public defender.  Forget?  It's how the bastards in government line government coffers.  All too often, looting the innocent.  Those on the bottom of the food chain.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"No justice.  The American Way.  Nazi America.  When is this shit finally going to end?  All of it.  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred thirty eight weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.

"Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.  Who the hell are they?

"When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

"Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

"Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

"Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

"Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff?  Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up. Ever.

"Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

"Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for?

"Ferociously pointedly, why is the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

"You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?"

Counselor:

The enclosed emails were sent to the Llano County Attorney and Sheriff, respectively, vis a vis the above matter.  Remain unanswered.  The County Attorney appears to be protecting and defending the deputy at behest of Kingsland property owner Johnny Greene.  May have received some consideration from Greene up to and including a bribe.  Are the County Attorney, Greene, and the Deputy under criminal investigation?  If not, why not?

Re:  Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764

Counselor:

As you're well aware, we have an outrageously corrupt, abusive, achingly inept Llano County Sheriff's Office here in Nazi Llano County.  Worse, you and your office aid and abet these SS jackbooted bastards in black.  The issue at the moment is the same it's been the last six months.

How is it two surveyor companies, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, even the goddamned Sheriff himself now states Kingsland resident James Berardi owns the lots in contention all these months?

Yet, you ludicrously assert that's not the County's legal position.  It's not?  Why not?  You claim you're not a real estate expert.  Rather than accept the advice of two surveyor companies, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, and even the Sheriff himself, you've inexplicably chosen to follow the advice of property owner Johnny Greene, -- who conveniently happens to be reportedly in the oil industry.

Question to be asked.  Could you have received any 'consideration' in return, -- up to and including a bribe?  Only way to know for sure is for the District Attorney to conduct a criminal investigation.  Apparently, there has been none.  If not, why not?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to this Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.

Our achingly useless, worthless, gutless Sheriff has ignored an email vis a vis the damage this jackbooted thug is responsible for.  Interestingly, his fellow officers believe him to be an idiot.  Yet, the Sheriff continued to defend this piece of human excrement until he realized  this entire fiasco would not be swept under the carpet.

Rodriguez is indeed an idiot.  Would you believe this piece of crap ordered the motor home to be moved on to an unmarked unused Llano County road? That motor home has indeed been moved back to where it was parked before Rodriguez forced it to be moved.  Why hasn't the County paid for the cost of moving it back?  To say nothing of the damage.

Equally pointedly, why is it the County has allowed Theresa Ahrens to park and live in her tiny cottage on that very same road?  Why hasn't she been evicted by the County?  Why was she assessed taxes on an adjacent improvement she doesn't own?

Why is it, Counselor, Johnny Greene is paying for the attorney retained by Ms. Ahrens?  Is Greene attempting to make this all go away by bribery?  Greene has also informed Berardi he is going to sue.  For what?  Has Greene lost his mind?

What about Wells who installed a $4500 septic system on a lot turns out he does not own as a result of Greene, an outrageously inept County, to say nothing of the Llano County Attorney who remains equally determinedly clueless?

How about Bolen who hasn't a pot to piss in, but was nonetheless f--ked over by Greene to say nothing of an egregiously inept County, to say nothing of you and your goddamned equally incompetent office?

None of this is going away, Counselor, -- any time soon.  Will not be swept under the carpet as all the other crap going on in this hell hole County.  Not a chance.  Expect a full expose in this publication whether or not this outrageous fiasco finally gets resolved.  Including full public exposure of both the Sheriff and his jackbooted thug.

Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred thirty eight weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.  Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.

Who are they, Sheriff?  Their past history?  An ongoing investigation remains a lame bullshit excuse.  How can you and your goons be trusted when you refuse to disclose information?  One hundred thirty eight weeks.  Especially, your egregious failure to disclose the identity of the officers who pulled the trigger.  To cover your sorry ass, Sheriff?  Those of your thugs?  The people have a right to know what happened, how it went down.  You don't understand that, Sheriff?  Sadly, clearly, you answer to no one.  Including taxpayers.  Especially, taxpayers.

Until you and your goons come clean, doubt will remain this was indeed a good shoot.  The longer you drag your feet, the greater the doubt.  Think not?  Wake up.  Your credibility has tanked.  Isn't getting any better as this bullshit continues unabated.  One hundred thirty eight weeks.   Still no identification of the officers involved  ... Can't get your stories straight?  In line?  Discrepancy between LCSO and DPS? Wake up, Sheriff.  The public no longer buys the bullshit.  No longer trusts you.  On this and many, many other issues.  You have no credibility.  Absolutely, none.

Readers, this is but one of about four other highly questionable killings by law enforcement in Llano County in the last decade or so.  There was one within the City of Llano, another in a field near Fuzzy's Corner, Buchanan Dam, yet another in Point Tella, Buchanan Dam, still another in Tow.  If there are any others I may have neglected to mention, kindly email.

It's time the public be fully informed.  -- Know what we're dealing with here and how 'law' 'enforcement' operates in this hell hole County.  If these jackbooted bastards are not reined in, the life lost could be yours courtesy of a law enforcement system that is no longer accountable to anyone.  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

The Sheriff seems to have no clue the people who pay him and his goons are entitled to know whom is killing whom and why.  This shit always seems to be swept under the carpet.  Ignored.  The attitude of these jackbooted sons of bitches is trust us.  They can't be.  They've lied too many times.  Refuse to be accountable to anyone.  We live in a goddamned fascist police-state where law enforcement does as it pleases. Usually, with impunity.  That has to change.

The Texas Rangers have become rubber stamp to atrocities committed by law enforcement.  This also has to change.  No one is holding law enforcement accountable any longer.  No one.  No one in state or federal government. This is precisely why Ferguson triggered such an uproar.  There was no justice there.  None here.  None anywhere.  Officers are abusive, corrupt, inept.

Falsely ticket and arrest the innocent to line County coffers.  Court fees charged continue to be horrendous.  -- Aren't taxpayers already looted to pay these costs?  Aren't you boys not only double f--king those falsely accused, but taxpayers also hellaciously looted to pay the very same costs?   Yet, the criminal bastards in power in Llano continue to pile on the fees. This is nothing more than goddamned bullshit.  This money finds its way into the pockets of the corrupt, abusive bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole.

Would you believe the last time the Sheriff's Office happened to be 'audited' during the Garrett regime, reportedly, auditors couldn't figure out what went where and why? Yet, surprise, surprise.  Nothing was done.  There has to be transparency.  There is none.  Why would these thieving bastards want any?  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  How else could they so easily steal and loot with virtual impunity?  Worse, this reinforces jackbooted power in this goddamned, godforsaken hell hole County.

The public has a right to know the histories of the Sheriff's goons.  Clearly, the Sheriff doesn't think so.  That is, where they came from.  Why they left where they were.  What is happening here is the Sheriff is using 'personnel matters' as a convenient excuse to deny the public access to the history of outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept officers who are no more than criminals themselves.

He's protecting his outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards.  Worse, the standards imposed by sheriff's offices statewide with the exception of metropolitan counties are well below those of DPS and city police departments.  Why?  So the corruption, abuse, ineptness, and outright stealing can continue unabated?  This has to change.  ... Can't have that, can we?  Sheriff?  TL?

The public should understand Llano County authorities have it all sewn up.  Did you know the Texas Attorney General does not have the authority to investigate and prosecute County authorities on his own?  The District Attorney has to call for an investigation by the Texas Rangers.  Then, the State can prosecute if it so chooses.

Consequently?  Guess what?  Nothing will happen.  Nothing ever does.  The goddamned corruption continues unabated until you, the public, pressure authorities.  Precisely, why we all enjoy the 'best' government money can buy. Literally.  Without question, the corrupt, abusive, inept sons of bitches are all bought and paid for.  Firmly clamped to the taxpayer tit.  Dependent on money looted from innocent citizens caught in their web.  Phony fines and court costs cleverly designed to f--k the innocent and enrich the pieces of shit who falsely believe they run and own Llano County. Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

Interestingly, the former Sheriff and District Attorney were reportedly forced to retire after an outrageous scandal involving a drunk driving police officer from out of town.  Including special treatment of the drunken son of a bitch that no other citizen caught doing the same would have been afforded.  An honest, honorable Llano County Deputy suffered the consequences. Forget?  Great officers do not last in this hell hole County. ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

With all ongoing abuse in this goddamned County, one thing remains for damned sure.  We're just getting started, Sheriff.  You will continue to be exposed for whom and what you and your corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards have become, truly are, not what you phonies purport to be, that is, how you continue to f--k over a public you've falsely sworn to protect and defend.  -- Exposure, the only way short of an unwanted dreaded revolution to force desperately needed change in a goddamned fascist police-state. The Fourth Reich.

Have your jackbooted thugs been tested for steroids, Sheriff?  If you've nothing to hide, Bill, release the results of all drug testing.  'Personnel matters?'  Bullshit.  Looted taxpayers have the right to know.  They're footing the bill for all this goddamned corruption, abuse, ineptness. When will you and the boys end the shakedowns?  Looting of the innocent to line County coffers?  No honor at all?

Where are your swastika armbands, you fascist son of a bitch?  You and your thugs remain out of uniform.  Once again, Sheriff, and ad nauseum, did you and/or your goons pressure Schilling to exit the race?  Did you steal the election? If so, an aggressively stupid, achingly gutless public gets what it truly deserves.  One of the most corrupt, abusive, inept 'law' 'enforcement' agencies in our formerly great country.

Have any information, knowledge of, experience with a purportedly non-profit volunteer clean-up group called Looking Forward In Llano County affiliated with the Llano County Attorney's Office?  Email this publication at libertyinperil@protonmail.com to provide information and/or arrange a meeting to discuss this matter.  If requested, your identity will be protected.  The question is quite simple.  Is this group what it claims to be and on the level?

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

In follow up to the last edition, CNN reports:

"Emantic Bradford Sr. has received an apology from Hoover, Alabama, officials, he said Thursday, but he remains disappointed they did not extend him the courtesy of promptly letting him know police killed his son Thanksgiving night. "They apologized, but that still doesn't erase the fact that we were not notified that night, so what was your reason and rationale?" asked Bradford, who spent 25 years as a correctional officer. Emantic Bradford Jr. was shot three times in the back, his family says. Bradford has repeatedly expressed his displeasure with Hoover officials for not reaching out to him or answering basic questions in the hours after a police officer killed Emantic Bradford Jr., aka EJ, at the Riverchase Galleria mall. He did not learn his son was dead until hours afterward, and his mother learned of his death the next day, from one of the 21-year-old's friends, he said."

None of this adds up.  Can't seem to get their stories straight.  Apparently, protecting the officer responsible.  More than enough time to complete the investigation.

"Family lawyer Ben Crump said officials tried to pass the buck when they met with the father. "They said the coroner should've done it. This is five days later, after they put out across worldwide media that their son was a mass shooter," the civil rights attorney said. Hoover police initially said Bradford Jr. shot a 12- and an 18-year-old in the suburban Birmingham mall and that an officer killed him as he fled. Police later changed the story, saying witnesses and forensic tests indicated that while Bradford may have been involved in an altercation, he likely did not fire the rounds that injured the victims. The family has said that Bradford Jr. was not at the mall with any of the victims or the suspect. He went there with his cousin and two friends, and possessing a permit to carry a weapon, pulled out his gun after the shooting began. He was helping people escape danger when he was killed, the family says."

Police continue to refuse to release the identity of the officer involved, all videos, and investigative information regarding the shooting.  More than enough time has passed.  Apparently, they're protecting the officer responsible.

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Some semblance of justice.  NPR reports:

"James Alex Fields Jr., who rammed his car into a crowd of counterprotesters during a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., last year was found guilty on Friday of killing Heather Heyer and injuring dozens of others. The jury deliberated for several hours before convicting Fields, 21, of first degree murder, along with several counts of aggravated malicious wounding, malicious wounding and leaving the scene of an accident. Over the course of the trial prosecutor Nina-Alice Antony depicted Fields as an angry white nationalist who acted with hate and violence on Aug. 12, 2017 when he sped into unsuspecting counterdemonstrators after the Unite the Right rally was shut down by authorities. Antony reminded the jury of a meme Fields posted three months earlier on Instagram. That post showed flailing bodies — labeled "protesters" — being tossed into the air after a car plows into a crowd, the Associated Press reported."

NPR reports:

"On Tuesday, jurors sentenced James Alex Fields Jr. to 419 years plus life and roughly half a million dollars in fines. A judge will hold a separate hearing on March 29. The 21-year-old avowed neo-Nazi who murdered a woman when he plowed his car into a crowd of counterprotesters last year at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., will likely spend the rest of his life in prison. A jury in Charlottesville said Tuesday that James Alex Fields Jr. should be sentenced to life plus 419 years in prison and $480,000 in fines, for killing Heather Heyer and seriously injuring 35 others. Judge Richard Moore will decide whether to sign off on the recommended sentence at a hearing on March 29."

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Law enforcement remains egregiously out of control.  Blatantly Aryan arrogant.  Horrendously out to lunch.  Achingly, clueless.  ... Right, Sheriff?  CNN reports:

"With a crowd of onlookers gathered around, New York Police officers encircle a woman and her child on the ground. One officer reaches down and begins to pull. The officer yanks harder, and harder, and the woman's cries become louder. "You're hurting my son! You're hurting my son!" she yells. A tug of war ensues, and as noise from the horrified crowd builds, an officer brandishes a yellow stun gun and begins to point it around the room, a government welfare office in Brooklyn."

Jackbooted pieces of shit.  Storm troopers.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"The stunning and hectic scene, captured on video and posted to Facebook, ends with the woman in handcuffs escorted from the scene -- and her 1-year-old son elsewhere. A family member took custody of the child following the arrest, the NYPD said. The forceful arrest of the unarmed mother at a social services office has caused a significant backlash, particularly from those who saw it as an unnecessarily violent escalation and a symbol of how the poor are treated in America."

Raw nazism.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Being poor is not a crime. The actions of the NYPD in this video are appalling and contemptible," said Letitia James, the Public Advocate for New York City. Facing criticism, the NYPD and the New York City Human Resources Administration are now reviewing that December 7 arrest. "Video images of the incident in the 84th precinct are troubling," the NYPD said in a statement, adding that the review will "include examination of all available video of the incident."

Jesus Christ.  Best you can do?  Heads securely lodged so far up your jackbooted asses that you fools remain that determinedly clueless, out to lunch?

"Corey Johnson, the speaker of the New York City Council, said it was "unacceptable, appalling and heart breaking." "I'd like to understand what transpired and how these officers or the NYPD justifies this. It's hard to watch this video," he said on Twitter. On Facebook, James called for a full investigation into the officers' conduct and said the results should be made public. She also called for the officers involved, including their assigned supervisor, to be assigned to desk duty until an investigation is complete. "No mother should have to experience the trauma and humiliation we all witnessed in this video," she said."

Insult to injury?  The jackbooted bastards responsible are determinedly turning the victim of this brutality into the perpetrator:

"The mother, Jazmine Headley, 23, faces four charges in the incident, including resisting arrest, acting in a manner injurious to a child, obstructing governmental administration and criminal trespass, the NYPD said. The incident began on Friday just before 1 p.m. when police responded to a harassment complaint at the Fort Greene Food Stamp Center in Brooklyn. Police were called after office staff and HRA security unsuccessfully tried to remove Headley from the facility "due to her disorderly conduct towards others, and for obstructing the hallway," according to police. Facebook user Monae Sinclair, who posted the video, said that there were no chairs available so Headley sat in the corner on the floor. A security guard came over and exchanged words with her, and the police later arrived. Headley was told by police numerous times to leave the location and refused, the NYPD said. HRA security then brought the woman to the floor and NYPD officers attempted to place her under arrest, the NYPD said. "She refused to comply with officers' orders, and was then taken into custody," police said in a statement. The video illustrates in graphic clarity the show of force implicit in that police statement. Headley refused medical treatment for both herself and her son, police said. There were no officer injuries in the incident."

Think these jackbooted bastards in blue didn't get their cookies off abusing this woman and child?  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Headley is represented by a public defender and is expected to make a court appearance on December 13. Her attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment. In a statement, the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office said it's interviewing witnesses and reviewing video as part of an independent investigation. The DA's office also said it did not request any bail for Headley and that she is still being held in jail in connection with a warrant from New Jersey. "We are reaching out to authorities in that state to expedite her release," the statement said. The Mercer County Sheriff's office confirmed to CNN that Headley has an outstanding arrest warrant from NJ Superior Court from July 2017 for failure to appear in relation to credit card fraud."

NBC News reports:

"The New York Police Department said a "troubling" video showing officers trying to pry a 1-year-old from his mother's arms at a Brooklyn social services office is under review. "They're hurting my son! They're hurting my son," the woman, Jazmine Headley, is heard screaming in the video posted Friday on Facebook. In it, Headley, with her back on the floor, struggles to hang on to her baby as several officers try to rip him away. The scene quickly escalated as bystanders surround the chaos and shout over each other. "Oh my God! Look what they're doing to her," people yell on the video, which has been viewed more than 200,000 times."

Jackbooted bastards.  Out of control.  Goons.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"At least one officer pulled out what appeared to be a stun gun, and pointed it toward the crowd before holding it inches from the Headley's face. The NYPD said in a statement that the video was "troubling," and they were reviewing it along with any other video they could find from the incident. The city's social services commissioner announced Monday that two peace officers from the Human Resources Administration were put on leave and will be placed on modified duty when they return to work pending the department's investigation, NBC station WNBC reported. The Brooklyn District Attorney's Office was also launching an independent investigation "with the intention of reaching a swift decision," a spokesman for the office announced Monday.

"The woman who posted the video to Facebook wrote that Headley sat on the floor of the office with her child because all of the seats were taken. A security guard who told her to get off the floor eventually ended up calling police, the woman wrote. "This Was The Outcome ... Mind You She Had Her Baby In Her Hands The Whole Time," the woman said. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams called for the charges against Headley to be dropped. “The mother didn’t endanger the welfare of the child. The actions of the department endangered the welfare of the child,” Adams, a retired NYPD captain, said Monday at a press conference near the Human Resources Administration office. "It’s hard to watch this video," City Council Speaker Corey Johnson said in a tweet. "This is unacceptable, appalling and heart breaking. I’d like to understand what transpired and how these officers or the NYPD justifies this." Public Advocate and Attorney General-elect Letitia James also called for an investigation and said that involved officers should be assigned desk duty during the probe. “Being poor is not a crime. The actions of the NYPD in this video are appalling and contemptible," James said. "No mother should have to experience the trauma and humiliation we all witnessed in this video.”

The American Civil Liberties Union needs to step up and represent this woman.  Needs far better representation than a public defender.  Forget?  It's how the bastards in government line government coffers.  All too often, looting the innocent.  Those on the bottom of the food chain.  ... Right, Sheriff?

No justice.  The American Way.  Nazi America.  When is this shit finally going to end?  All of it.  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred thirty eight weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.

Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.  Who the hell are they?

When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff?  Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up. Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for?

Ferociously pointedly, why is the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?

Publisher's Note.  CBS News reports:

"Brooklyn's district attorney has dismissed all charges against a mother who was violently separated from her toddler son by officers in a videotaped encounter at a city social services office that has sparked outrage."

More on this as the story develops.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

In follow up to a recent edition, CBS News reports:

"An Illinois police chief has been fired, more than a month after he was charged with videotaping sexual encounters with women and then sharing the images without their consent. According to CBS Chicago, former Chicago Heights Park District Police Chief Christian Daigre, 41, was charged with felony counts of non-consensual dissemination of private sexual images, witness intimidation and possession of a controlled substance. Daigre was placed on administrative leave after the allegations came to light in October. Once he was charged, the district suspended him without pay. "Mr. Daigre's personal conduct discredited the District's integrity and placed the District in disrepute. In addition, Mr. Daigre's conduct and the related charges filed against him would hamper his ability to perform his job duties in the future," said Park District Superintendent Frank Perez."

Think the following becoming of a police officer?  To say nothing of a police chief?  Think his victims haven't suffered?

"According to prosecutors, Daigre filmed himself having sex with two women he met online in 2016 using cameras hidden in his home. He is accused of then texting images from the videos to other people. In November, he was charged with secretly filming a third woman and sharing those pictures without her consent. But prosecutors later dropped charges related to the third incident because of insufficient evidence. Through an attorney, Daigre denies the allegations, and claims the case is an attempt by a former co-worker to discredit him. But the attorney who represents the victims said there could be more victims."

Think there aren't serious problems within the judiciary?  CBS News reports:

"A former Baylor University fraternity president accused of raping a teenage sophomore in 2016 will avoid jail time after pleading to a lesser charge in a deal approved by a judge who has allowed light sentences in other cases involving sexual assault allegations. The judge in this case, Ralph Strother, said 23-year-old Jacob Anderson must undergo counseling and pay a $400 fine. Anderson initially faced years in prison and having to register for life as a sex offender. Under the deal with prosecutors, he pleaded no contest to one charge of unlawful restraint. Anderson now faces three years of deferred probation but will not have to register as a sex offender. This is at least the third time judge Strother has approved probation for men accused of sexually assaulting Baylor students. One was after a guilty plea in a 2013 rape case and another earlier this year included a 30-day jail sentence served on weekends."

Think this bastard fit to sit on the bench?

"Anderson's alleged victim said she's "devastated" and her supporters are worried about the message it will send. She told police in 2016 the former Baylor fraternity president repeatedly raped her at an off-campus house party where alcohol was served. She said he gagged and choked her until she lost consciousness. Following Monday's plea agreement the woman, known as "Donna Doe," addressed the judge in court saying, "I am devastated by your decision…he stole my…virginity and power over my body and you let him keep it for all eternity."

Is this now how victims of sexual assault will be routinely treated in court?  Not believed?

"Baylor graduate student Erin Albin started an online petition expressing outrage over the deal that has already gathered more than 85,000 signatures. "I think people are finally realizing this is a problem and that survivors aren't taken seriously…We see time and time again, everything from the national level down to the local level of a lot of people, mainly men, getting away with things like this," Albin said."

Indeed.  Latest example now sits on the United States Supreme Court after his accuser was not believed by Republican national socialists, fascists, nazis entrenched in the United States Senate.  ... Right, Sen. Lindsey Graham?  Time to take your head out of your ass, Senator.

Delusionally believe the traitorous jackbooted bastards in ICE can be trusted?  UPI reports:

"Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have arrested 170 undocumented adults seeking to sponsor migrant children in custody of the federal government, the agency said Tuesday. Agents conducted background checks, including fingerprinting, from early July to November on potential sponsors seeking to take in unaccompanied migrant children under the care of the Department of Health and Human Services, ICE said. Of those arrested, 109 did not have a criminal record, the agency said. ICE didn't specify the crimes of the 61 arrested. Just under 80 percent of people ICE screened during the sponsorship process weren't in the country legally, the agency said. In September, 41 people who had similarly tried to sponsor migrant children were arrested. Undocumented residents face deportation if arrested."

Worst of the worst.  Treacherous, traitorous, treasonous pieces of human excrement unfit to wear a badge.

"President Donald Trump authorized immigration authorities to examine the criminal background and legal status of anyone who wants to sponsor unaccompanied migrant children -- usually parents or close relatives already in the United States -- and any other adults living in their home."

Trump has no honor.  No principles.  No heart.  No soul.  No more than an amoral piece of human excrement unfit for office.

"Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who introduced a bill in the Senate to prohibit ICE from using information in background checks to enforce immigration laws, posted on Twitter on Tuesday: "A natural consequence of these arrests is that these children have nowhere to go."

The amoral nazi in the Oval Office couldn't care less.

Clearly, the duplicitous pieces of human excrement in law enforcement cannot be trusted.  ... Right, Sheriff?

Raw cowardice.  The Washington Post reports:

"Numerous security lapses preceded the shooting rampage that killed 17 people at a Parkland, Fla., high school this year, while multiple law enforcement officials called to the carnage failed to respond appropriately, according to a draft report from a state commission investigating the shooting. The report, which is not final, identified myriad issues that occurred before, during and after the attack itself, including unlocked entrances at the school allowing the attacker to get inside, sheriff’s deputies who did not rush to confront the shooter and confusion during the law enforcement response. Taken together, the findings are a grim collection of missteps and questionable decisions related to the Feb. 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which ended with 17 staff and students dead and set off a wave of nationwide calls for stricter gun laws."

As intended by the Founders, the Second Amendment remains the last best defense against corrupt, abusive, out of control, murderous government.

"Law enforcement officials have also drawn considerable scrutiny for their actions. The Broward sheriff’s deputy assigned to the school, Scot Peterson, has been assailed for failing to go inside the building where the gunfire was occurring. Not long after the shooting, the sheriff’s office said it would investigate allegations that multiple deputies failed to enter the school “when they should have,” something the draft report suggests did occur. The sheriff’s office said it would review how it responded to some of the calls regarding Cruz, while the FBI acknowledged that it failed to act on a specific warning about him."

Get this:

"The report said that the law enforcement response on the day of the shooting was “hindered in part" by Peterson’s actions, including his comments telling them to stay away from the building where the shooting was occurring, which runs counter to the widely-accepted police practice of rushing to confront active shooters. But the commission’s findings go beyond Peterson, and the draft report recommends that the sheriff’s office conduct an internal review into how seven deputies acted. The report says “several” Broward sheriff’s deputies were videotaped or described as taking time to put on ballistic vests or remove other gear they were wearing, “all while shots were being fired," which is described as “unacceptable and contrary to accepted protocol under which the deputies should have immediately moved towards the gunshots to confront the shooter.” Others arrived at a road near the school, heard the gunshots and remained on the road rather than going after the attacker."

Seatbelts on.  CBS News reports:

"Vietnam veteran Stanley Stoltz died alone in Omaha this month. It looked like he would be buried alone, until strangers braved the bitter cold to honor a man they never met. There were hundreds of strangers in military fatigues and civilian attire, remembering the service and patriotism of the 73-year-old army private. The rallying cry for Stoltz began a week ago, when the funeral home was concerned no one would show at the burial and posted a notice in the Omaha World-Herald. It said, "The public is invited to the cemetery to honor a Vietnam veteran with no known family."

Incredibly sad, isn't it?  No family.

"Some siblings were eventually located, but the notice went viral and the public responded."

Did they ever.

"First it came out that no immediate family was going to be there, so I thought, I'll be there," said Robert Bussant. "He needs to be honored."

Indeed.

"Stoltz was born in 1945, and grew up on a farm in Curlew, Iowa, before he served his country. President Lincoln once made a promise "to care for him who shall have borne the battle." That promise was kept for this veteran, and his sacrifice will not be forgotten."

No question.

Passing of a President. '41'.  NPR reports:

"George Herbert Walker Bush died Friday at the age of 94. George W. Bush released a statement, saying for himself and his siblings, "Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro, and I are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years, our dear Dad has died." "George H.W. Bush was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for," he said. "The entire Bush family is deeply grateful for 41's life and love, for the compassion of those who have cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our friends and fellow citizens."

"There were fears that after his wife, Barbara, died in April, Bush might die, too. He was admitted to the hospital with a blood infection on April 23, one day after the funeral for the former first lady, and remained there for 13 days. He also spent time in the hospital in May and June, but lived to be the first former president to reach the age of 94."

Indeed.  -- A most remarkable life.  ... From the time at the age of 20 being shot down in the Pacific during the Second World War right up to the recent loss of his wife.  While Bush and Reagan were pointedly criticized in this publication and elsewhere for damned good reason, both men were indeed the last of their genre in the Republican Party.

Compared to what now rages in the GOP, both remain flaming liberals in comparison.  Since, however, this is an obituary and there was also great good done by the late President during his lifetime, only the good will be considered here.  This man was certainly a patriot and war hero.  Did a great job as UN Ambassador.  Treated his family and all those around him extremely well with great compassion.  Consider the following:

The Washington Post reports:

"Prescott Bush wanted his son to go right to Yale upon graduation from Andover. But Mr. Bush said his father had also insisted that privilege carried a responsibility to “put something back in, do something, help others.” His own time to serve came on his 18th birthday, when he enlisted in the Navy; within a year, he received his wings and became one of the youngest pilots in the service. Sent to the Pacific, he flew torpedo bombers off the aircraft carrier San Jacinto. On Sept. 2, 1944, his plane was hit by Japanese ground fire during a bombing run on Chichi Jima in the Bonin Islands in the western Pacific. He pressed his attack even though his plane was aflame. Mr. Bush bailed out over the ocean and was rescued by a submarine. His two crewmen were killed. The future president was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross."

NPR reports:

"Bush was inspired by a speech at Andover given by Henry L. Stimson, a two-time secretary of war and "kind of a god in those Northeastern circles," says Geoffrey Kabaservice, author of Rule and Ruin, a book about moderate Republicanism. "Hearing Stimson talk about patriotism and American values was one of the things that impelled Bush to enlist," says Lewis Gould, a historian of the Republican Party. "He was impelled by a sense of duty and put himself in harm's way, and his life goes in that direction." Bush was sworn into the Navy on his 18th birthday, soon becoming its youngest pilot. He flew nearly five-dozen missions. He was shot down on Sept. 2, 1944, over the island of Chichi Jima in the Pacific and was picked up by a submarine after floating on a raft for a couple of hours."

Above quote neglects to mention the fact the young pilot spent several hours vigorously paddling that raft away from the island the Japanese were entrenched on.  Had he been captured, would have likely been killed.

Subsequent to the above, found a far more harrowing account of what happened that day.  CBS News reports:

"Like many wartime pilots, Lt. j.g. George H.W. Bush named his airplane after a girl back home. But he had to call it "Barbara III," since he lost his first two planes — one during training and one to enemy fire. That's how dangerous flying was in World War II. There were 16 pilots in George H.W. Bush's squadron, according to retired Adm. Samuel Cox, director of Naval History and Heritage Command. "Half of them were killed or captured before the end of the war," Cox said."

Must not be forgotten some 400,000 of our best and brightest were killed in action in the Second World War, both European and Pacific Theaters.

"Mr. Bush's service records show he was "average" in flight school. One instructor described him as "somewhat eccentric." He flew the Avenger, which had a three-man crew. It was the heaviest plane the Navy dared to fly off an aircraft carrier. His target on Sept. 2, 1944, was a Japanese radio transmitter on the island of Chichijima. A Navy animation shows his plane was hit as he began his run into the target. But he stayed with it until he dropped his bombs, before trying to get back over water."

Imagine the terror.  Got worse, however.  Far worse:

"Cox explained fliers who parachuted down onto the island were executed. So out over the water, Mr. Bush told his crew to bail out. "Two parachutes came out of the aircraft. One opened, which was presumably Lt. j.g. Bush. The other, what's called a streamer — the parachute didn't open," Cox said. Neither of the other two crewmen were seen again. Mr. Bush landed in the water and swam to a life raft."

Clearly, the Japanese were not happy campers:

"The Japanese came out after him. Some fighters from the flight were able to strafe the Japanese boats and keep them away during the four hours that Bush was actually in the water," Cox said. A U.S. submarine got to him before the Japanese could. "Bush was actually surprised when out of nowhere this submarine surfaces right next to him," Cox said. A 20-year-old George H.W. Bush spent 30 days on that submarine thinking, as he later told the author James Bradley, "Why had I been spared and what did God have in store for me?"

Former President Bill Clinton writes in The Washington Post:

"On Jan. 20, 1993, I entered the Oval Office for the first time as president. As is the tradition, waiting for me was a note from my predecessor, George Herbert Walker Bush. It read:

Dear Bill,

When I walked into this office just now I felt the same sense of wonder and respect that I felt four years ago. I know you will feel that, too.

I wish you great happiness here. I never felt the loneliness some Presidents have described.

There will be very tough times, made even more difficult by criticism you may not think is fair. I’m not a very good one to give advice; but just don’t let the critics discourage you or push you off course.

You will be our President when you read this note. I wish you well. I wish your family well.

Your success now is our country’s success. I am rooting hard for you.

Good Luck — George

"No words of mine or others can better reveal the heart of who he was than those he wrote himself. He was an honorable, gracious and decent man who believed in the United States, our Constitution, our institutions and our shared future. And he believed in his duty to defend and strengthen them, in victory and defeat. He also had a natural humanity, always hoping with all his heart that others’ journeys would include some of the joy that his family, his service and his adventures gave him."

... Goes on and on.  All in tribute.  By a political foe.  My, oh, my.  Have things changed.

... Hey, Sheriff?  Is it true Llano County Attorney Becky Lange has advised you to stay out of the "Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764" fiasco?  That right, Bill?  Isn't that obstruction of justice?  Also true your deputies have advised the Bolens to accept the status quo and not force the no-trespassing issue with Greene?  If so, isn't that also obstruction and official oppression?  When will you do your job, Bill?  As an elected official, you answer to the public, forget?  -- No honor?  ... No honor at all?  If the foregoing allegations are indeed true, didn't you swear an oath to uphold the law and Constitution?  Why aren't you doing so?  No guts?

Your deputy has been accused of abusing authority.  What action have you taken other than ignore the complaint?  Why aren't both Rodriguez and the County Attorney under criminal investigation?  The County Attorney appears to be obstructing justice, accepting the word of Greene in lieu of two surveyor companies who strongly assert otherwise.  Both the County Attorney and District Attorney have ignored complaints.  Par for the course in Llano County, isn't it?  Failed to do their jobs.  No surprise there, right, Bill?  Both receiving 'special consideration' up to and/or including a bribe from Greene?  Regardless, clearly, no justice in Nazi Llano County.  Bottom line?  Desperate need for an outside criminal investigation.  Conveniently, forget?  This County is ruled by men, certainly not rule of law and the United States Constitution.

Precisely, why there is desperate need for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, and prosecute criminal law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose only mandate would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.  Until that happens, the criminal bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole County will continue to do as they please.

Some salient quotes occurring later on in this edition vis a vis unfinished business County officials continue to ignore:

... "Goes on and on.  No justice.  The American Way.  Nazi America.  When is this shit finally going to end?  All of it.  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred thirty seven weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.

"Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.  Who the hell are they?

"When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

"Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

"Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

"Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

"Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff?  Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up. Ever.

"Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

"Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for?

"Ferociously pointedly, why is the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

"You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?"

Counselor:

The enclosed emails were sent to the Llano County Attorney and Sheriff, respectively, vis a vis the above matter.  Remain unanswered.  The County Attorney appears to be protecting and defending the deputy at behest of Kingsland property owner Johnny Greene.  May have received some consideration from Greene up to and including a bribe.  Are the County Attorney, Greene, and the Deputy under criminal investigation?  If not, why not?

Re:  Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764

Counselor:

As you're well aware, we have an outrageously corrupt, abusive, achingly inept Llano County Sheriff's Office here in Nazi Llano County.  Worse, you and your office aid and abet these SS jackbooted bastards in black.  The issue at the moment is the same it's been the last six months.

How is it two surveyor companies, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, even the goddamned Sheriff himself now states Kingsland resident James Berardi owns the lots in contention all these months?

Yet, you ludicrously assert that's not the County's legal position.  It's not?  Why not?  You claim you're not a real estate expert.  Rather than accept the advice of two surveyor companies, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, and even the Sheriff himself, you've inexplicably chosen to follow the advice of property owner Johnny Greene, -- who conveniently happens to be reportedly in the oil industry.

Question to be asked.  Could you have received any 'consideration' in return, -- up to and including a bribe?  Only way to know for sure is for the District Attorney to conduct a criminal investigation.  Apparently, there has been none.  If not, why not?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to this Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.

Our achingly useless, worthless, gutless Sheriff has ignored an email vis a vis the damage this jackbooted thug is responsible for.  Interestingly, his fellow officers believe him to be an idiot.  Yet, the Sheriff continued to defend this piece of human excrement until he realized  this entire fiasco would not be swept under the carpet.

Rodriguez is indeed an idiot.  Would you believe this piece of crap ordered the motor home to be moved on to an unmarked unused Llano County road? That motor home has indeed been moved back to where it was parked before Rodriguez forced it to be moved.  Why hasn't the County paid for the cost of moving it back?  To say nothing of the damage.

Equally pointedly, why is it the County has allowed Theresa Ahrens to park and live in her tiny cottage on that very same road?  Why hasn't she been evicted by the County?  Why was she assessed taxes on an adjacent improvement she doesn't own?

Why is it, Counselor, Johnny Greene is paying for the attorney retained by Ms. Ahrens?  Is Greene attempting to make this all go away by bribery?  Greene has also informed Berardi he is going to sue.  For what?  Has Greene lost his mind?

What about Wells who installed a $4500 septic system on a lot turns out he does not own as a result of Greene, an outrageously inept County, to say nothing of the Llano County Attorney who remains equally determinedly clueless?

How about Bolen who hasn't a pot to piss in, but was nonetheless f--ked over by Greene to say nothing of an egregiously inept County, to say nothing of you and your goddamned equally incompetent office?

None of this is going away, Counselor, -- any time soon.  Will not be swept under the carpet as all the other crap going on in this hell hole County.  Not a chance.  Expect a full expose in this publication whether or not this outrageous fiasco finally gets resolved.  Including full public exposure of both the Sheriff and his jackbooted thug.

Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred thirty seven weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.  Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.

Who are they, Sheriff?  Their past history?  An ongoing investigation remains a lame bullshit excuse.  How can you and your goons be trusted when you refuse to disclose information?  One hundred thirty seven weeks.  Especially, your egregious failure to disclose the identity of the officers who pulled the trigger.  To cover your sorry ass, Sheriff?  Those of your thugs?  The people have a right to know what happened, how it went down.  You don't understand that, Sheriff?  Sadly, clearly, you answer to no one.  Including taxpayers.  Especially, taxpayers.

Until you and your goons come clean, doubt will remain this was indeed a good shoot.  The longer you drag your feet, the greater the doubt.  Think not?  Wake up.  Your credibility has tanked.  Isn't getting any better as this bullshit continues unabated.  One hundred thirty seven weeks.   Still no identification of the officers involved  ... Can't get your stories straight?  In line?  Discrepancy between LCSO and DPS? Wake up, Sheriff.  The public no longer buys the bullshit.  No longer trusts you.  On this and many, many other issues.  You have no credibility.  Absolutely, none.

Readers, this is but one of about four other highly questionable killings by law enforcement in Llano County in the last decade or so.  There was one within the City of Llano, another in a field near Fuzzy's Corner, Buchanan Dam, yet another in Point Tella, Buchanan Dam, still another in Tow.  If there are any others I may have neglected to mention, kindly email.

It's time the public be fully informed.  -- Know what we're dealing with here and how 'law' 'enforcement' operates in this hell hole County.  If these jackbooted bastards are not reined in, the life lost could be yours courtesy of a law enforcement system that is no longer accountable to anyone.  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

The Sheriff seems to have no clue the people who pay him and his goons are entitled to know whom is killing whom and why.  This shit always seems to be swept under the carpet.  Ignored.  The attitude of these jackbooted sons of bitches is trust us.  They can't be.  They've lied too many times.  Refuse to be accountable to anyone.  We live in a goddamned fascist police-state where law enforcement does as it pleases. Usually, with impunity.  That has to change.

The Texas Rangers have become rubber stamp to atrocities committed by law enforcement.  This also has to change.  No one is holding law enforcement accountable any longer.  No one.  No one in state or federal government. This is precisely why Ferguson triggered such an uproar.  There was no justice there.  None here.  None anywhere.  Officers are abusive, corrupt, inept.

Falsely ticket and arrest the innocent to line County coffers.  Court fees charged continue to be horrendous.  -- Aren't taxpayers already looted to pay these costs?  Aren't you boys not only double f--king those falsely accused, but taxpayers also hellaciously looted to pay the very same costs?   Yet, the criminal bastards in power in Llano continue to pile on the fees. This is nothing more than goddamned bullshit.  This money finds its way into the pockets of the corrupt, abusive bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole.

Would you believe the last time the Sheriff's Office happened to be 'audited' during the Garrett regime, reportedly, auditors couldn't figure out what went where and why? Yet, surprise, surprise.  Nothing was done.  There has to be transparency.  There is none.  Why would these thieving bastards want any?  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  How else could they so easily steal and loot with virtual impunity?  Worse, this reinforces jackbooted power in this goddamned, godforsaken hell hole County.

The public has a right to know the histories of the Sheriff's goons.  Clearly, the Sheriff doesn't think so.  That is, where they came from.  Why they left where they were.  What is happening here is the Sheriff is using 'personnel matters' as a convenient excuse to deny the public access to the history of outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept officers who are no more than criminals themselves.

He's protecting his outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards.  Worse, the standards imposed by sheriff's offices statewide with the exception of metropolitan counties are well below those of DPS and city police departments.  Why?  So the corruption, abuse, ineptness, and outright stealing can continue unabated?  This has to change.  ... Can't have that, can we?  Sheriff?  TL?

The public should understand Llano County authorities have it all sewn up.  Did you know the Texas Attorney General does not have the authority to investigate and prosecute County authorities on his own?  The District Attorney has to call for an investigation by the Texas Rangers.  Then, the State can prosecute if it so chooses.

Consequently?  Guess what?  Nothing will happen.  Nothing ever does.  The goddamned corruption continues unabated until you, the public, pressure authorities.  Precisely, why we all enjoy the 'best' government money can buy. Literally.  Without question, the corrupt, abusive, inept sons of bitches are all bought and paid for.  Firmly clamped to the taxpayer tit.  Dependent on money looted from innocent citizens caught in their web.  Phony fines and court costs cleverly designed to f--k the innocent and enrich the pieces of shit who falsely believe they run and own Llano County. Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

Interestingly, the former Sheriff and District Attorney were reportedly forced to retire after an outrageous scandal involving a drunk driving police officer from out of town.  Including special treatment of the drunken son of a bitch that no other citizen caught doing the same would have been afforded.  An honest, honorable Llano County Deputy suffered the consequences. Forget?  Great officers do not last in this hell hole County. ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

With all ongoing abuse in this goddamned County, one thing remains for damned sure.  We're just getting started, Sheriff.  You will continue to be exposed for whom and what you and your corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards have become, truly are, not what you phonies purport to be, that is, how you continue to f--k over a public you've falsely sworn to protect and defend.  -- Exposure, the only way short of an unwanted dreaded revolution to force desperately needed change in a goddamned fascist police-state. The Fourth Reich.

Have your jackbooted thugs been tested for steroids, Sheriff?  If you've nothing to hide, Bill, release the results of all drug testing.  'Personnel matters?'  Bullshit.  Looted taxpayers have the right to know.  They're footing the bill for all this goddamned corruption, abuse, ineptness. When will you and the boys end the shakedowns?  Looting of the innocent to line County coffers?  No honor at all?

Where are your swastika armbands, you fascist son of a bitch?  You and your thugs remain out of uniform.  Once again, Sheriff, and ad nauseum, did you and/or your goons pressure Schilling to exit the race?  Did you steal the election? If so, an aggressively stupid, achingly gutless public gets what it truly deserves.  One of the most corrupt, abusive, inept 'law' 'enforcement' agencies in our formerly great country.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Think law enforcement doesn't have a serious, exponentially increasing problem with aggressive stupidity?  CBS News reports:

"A woman from Monroe County, Georgia, said she spent over three months in jail for possessing cotton candy, CBS affiliate WMAZ reports. Dasha Fincher said a roadside drug test falsely identified her bag of cotton candy as methamphetamine. On Thursday, Fincher filed a lawsuit in federal court against Monroe County, the two deputies who arrested her as well as the company that manufactured the drug test. Deputies Cody Maples and Allen Henderson conducted the traffic stop on New Year's Eve 2016. Deputies said the car Fincher was riding in was stopped because its window tints were too dark, though they later admitted that the windows were legal."

Jesus Christ.  No probable cause for the stop.  Surprised?  Why?  Happens all the time.  Called abuse of power.  ... Right, Sheriff?  How the County lines its pockets, isn't it, Bill?  Ferociously pointedly, why is it, Sheriff, the vehicles your jackbooted thugs drive in are tinted so heavily they cannot be seen into?  The public, indeed, has the right to see the faces of its oppressors.

"Fincher said the deputies saw a large open plastic bag inside the car and didn't believe her when she told them it was blue cotton candy. The deputies then used a roadside field test that detected meth inside the bag. Fincher was arrested and charged with meth trafficking and possession of meth with intent to distribute. Fincher's bond was set at $1 million and she remained in jail because she couldn't pay the cash bond."

Nazi America.  Fascist police-state.  Quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.

"In March 2017, a Georgia Bureau of Investigation lab test determined the substance in the bag was not an illegal drug. The charges against Fincher were dropped four weeks later. Fincher's lawsuit argues that the Monroe County Sheriff's Office was reckless and negligent and violated her civil rights. The drug test was manufactured by Sirchie Acquisitions, a company based in North Carolina, according to the lawsuit. The Nark II test has a history of false positive results, the suit says."

How about that?  Indeed, a problem for quite some time:

"In 2016, a ProPublica investigation revealed that low-cost roadside drug test kits "routinely produce false positives" that have sent thousands of people to jail nationwide. The report noted that the Justice Department issued guidelines in 2000 calling for test-kit packaging to carry warning labels, including a statement that kit users should receive appropriate training and should be taught that the tests may give false-positive and false-negative results."

Think every goddamned jackbooted bastard involved in these false arrests should not be prosecuted and sentenced to the same time their victims were incarcerated?

"CBS News reached out to the Monroe County Sheriff's office but has not received a reply for comment."

What the f--k could the jackbooted bastards possibly say?  ... Right, Sheriff?

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

The stonewalling never ends.  In follow up to a case covered extensively here and elsewhere, ABC News reports:

"More than three years after Sandra Bland died in a Texas jail after being arrested during a traffic stop, her sisters say they are still searching for critical information about her death. "For us in particular, I think closure is and will always be in far reach," Sharon Cooper told "The View." "We don’t have the answers that we need –- and I think the answers would come from the person who’s no longer here to give them to us ... my sister.” Cooper and Shanté Needham joined "The View" Tuesday to discuss "Say Her Name: The Life and Death of Sandra Bland," an HBO documentary about their sister that premieres Dec. 3. Cooper said the family is also trying to fight the "outrage fatigue" many feel about the numerous incidences of violence against black people since Bland's death. "If you are living while black in America, we know what it feels like to have your life in jeopardy at any given point ... we’re fighting to be seen as human," Cooper said."

Must not be forgotten blacks are not the only victims of these jackbooted bastards.  Statistically, more innocent unarmed whites are killed than blacks.  Does not, however, diminish in any way the injustice suffered by blacks perpetrated by the goons in law enforcement.

"On July 10, 2015, Bland, 28, was on her way to the grocery store in Waller County, Texas, Cooper said. She was pulled over by former Texas Department of Safety Trooper Brian Encinia for failure to use her turn signal to change lanes. A confrontation ensued and Encinia was seen on dashboard camera threatening to "light up" Bland, apparently with a stun gun, before arresting her. Bland was found dead in her jail cell three days later, on July 13. Her death, which was ruled a suicide, ignited the country in protest, sparking a national conversation about racism and police discrimination. Needham said that three years later, there is still a lot her family doesn't know about the circumstances surrounding Bland's death, including what time she died, which she said is "very important." “Everything surrounding it was questionable. We'll never know. That's what hurts the most," she added."

There was no justice:

"In December 2015, a grand jury chose not to indict the county sheriff and jail staff in connection to her death. A month later, the officer who arrested her, Encinia, was indicted for perjury. In June 2017, the perjury charge was dropped and Encinia surrendered his Texas law enforcement license. "Brian and his family appreciate the thoughtful review by the prosecutors. Dismissal was the right thing to do," Encinia's lawyer, Chip Lewis, said at the time."

The jackbooted bastards are nearly always protected and coddled.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"But Cooper said the perjury charge "was the minimal amount" of punishment he could receive. "That charge was dropped with the promise that he wouldn’t practice law enforcement in the state of Texas, and quite frankly, he shouldn't be a law enforcement official anywhere," Cooper said. Needham said the family doesn't know what Encinia is doing now."

No justice.  No criminal retribution.  Bet the son of a bitch isn't an officer in another state?

"In 2016, the family reached a $1.9 million settlement against the Texas Department of Public Safety, Waller County, Texas, and some county employees including two former jailers."

While better than nothing, the jackbooted bastard trooper who arrested her should have been criminally prosecuted.  Instead, was protected and coddled.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Since then, Bland's family also helped Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sign the Sandra Bland Act into law in 2017, which includes several prison reform initiatives including requiring independent law enforcement agencies to investigate jail deaths. But Cooper said the family is disappointed "police de-escalation" was left out of the legislation."

Symbolism over substance.  No true change.  Smoke and mirrors.  The jackbooted bastards want nothing less than the status quo.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Precisely, why an unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looms.  ... Hear the rumble?  Forget?  The increase in mass killings across our formerly great country is indeed indicative of low-grade insurrection.  Far worse to come.  Wake up.  Desperate need for change.  -- Before too late.

"While it's disheartening, it's not a reason for us not to fight," Cooper said. "Ultimately that is what we need in this country, we need our law enforcement officials to be trained appropriately so they can handle all situations that they encounter." However, Needham said she’s hopeful that her sister’s case will affect change. "Absolutely I think people are listening. I just hope they listen and activate what’s already in them," Needham said. She also called on those affected by Bland’s story to "contact your elected officials, hold them accountable, and don’t just sit at home and say, 'Oh, that’s sad.' Do something. Call, write, go sit in the office. Do something."

Republican fascists enjoying majority status across our formerly great country want no meaningful change.  They crave a fascist police-state because it reinforces their power.  Has been so since the Nixon nazi fifty years ago.  Democrats?  No better.  Out to lunch since November 22, 1963, the Kennedy assassination.

The number one issue in outrageously abusive, murderous law enforcement is not vetting, training, education, pay, professional status, etc..  It is deliberate, determined failure to hold officers criminally accountable for their crimes.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Instead, continue to be protected, coddled.

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

In follow up to the last edition, CBS News reports:

"Authorities have arrested the suspect in a Thanksgiving shooting at an Alabama mall where police killed a man they mistakenly thought was the gunman, U.S. Marshals confirm to CBS News. Erron Brown, 20, of Bessemer, Alabama, was arrested around 9:30 a.m. in the Atlanta area after a fugitive task force in Birmingham developed leads that he was with family in the area, according to U.S. Marshals. Inspector Frank Lempka with the U.S. Marshals in Atlanta said Brown was arrested at a relative's home and taken to the Fulton County jail for an extradition hearing to be sent back to Alabama. An arrest warrant was issued Wednesday for Brown in Alabama, charging him with attempted murder. Brown was charged in the shooting of Brian Xavier Wilson, 18, of Birmingham, who was wounded. He wasn't charged with shooting a 12-year-old girl who also was injured."

Get this:

"Court records show Brown was arrested in June 2017 in Huntsville on a charge of using a gun to rob a man, but the case was dismissed three months later after prosecutors filed notice that they didn't want to pursue the case."

Imagine that.

"Police were responding to reports of a shooting Thanksgiving night at the Riverchase Galleria in Hoover, a suburb of 95,000 people south of Birmingham, when an officer fatally shot 21-year-old Emantic "EJ" Bradford Jr.  Police initially blamed Bradford, who they said had a gun in his hand and was responsible for shooting two people at the mall. They later retracted that statement. In a statement issued Monday, police said Bradford had a gun in his hand "during the seconds following the gunshots, which instantly heightened the sense of threat to approaching police officers." Ben Crump, a lawyer representing the Bradford family, said there was a presumption that Bradford was the criminal because he was a black man. The officer who opened fire hasn't yet been identified. Bradford's family has said he had a permit to carry a weapon legally, and their attorney has said witnesses reported that Bradford was trying to help after the shooting."

The community is certainly not happy:

"Brown's arrest followed days of protests over Bradford's killing in Hoover, where city leaders asked the state Thursday for permission to release more information about the killing."

They're protecting the jackbooted bastard responsible.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"With the city's lone black City Council member, Derrick Murphy, acting as a spokesman, officials made the request during an appearance at City Hall that ended with two prayers. The city will look at releasing information on its own if no response comes by noon Monday, Murphy said."

What the f--k are you waiting for.  The bastards are stonewalling.  The public is entitled to this information.

"The city made the request about evidence to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency because state investigators are handling the shooting probe. A statement from the agency about Brown's arrest said it was "highly likely" that releasing evidence would hamper the continuing probe, but it didn't directly address the city's request."

That's a goddamned crock of shit.  They're protecting the jackbooted piece of shit responsible for killing this young man.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Demonstrators and relatives of Bradford have pushed authorities to release video and other evidence since the shooting."

The public is entitled to this.  There is no faith and trust in law enforcement.  That's gone.  Quite some time.

"If they can release them Monday, they can release them today," said community activist Carlos Chaverst Jr. of the video at a press conference Thursday. "We want them released almost immediately."

The public is entitled to know what went down, how it went down, and who the hell was involved.  That information could have been quickly released.  The jackbooted bastards are far more interested in protecting one of their own.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Activists also called for the identification of the police officer involved, and the resignation of the Hoover mayor and police chief."

The public is entitled to know the identity of its criminal jackbooted oppressors.

ABC News reports:

"Before Thursday's arrest was announced, Hoover City Councilman Derrick Murphy told reporters he has requested the ALEA release information on the case to the public by noon on Monday. “Mayor Frank Bracato, Chief Derzis and my fellow council members are all in full support of this request,” said Murphy. He said if ALEA does not comply with the request, Derzis will decide whether to “release the limited information on his own.”

Gutless coward.  Do it now.  What are you waiting for?  Police to concoct a story protecting the jackbooted thug?

"Community members and members of Bradford’s family have accused the police department of attempting to cover up in the incident, and have demanded the police department release police body-cam footage and surveillance video from the mall that captured the initial shooting as well as the officer-involved shooting of Bradford, who had a permit to carry a concealed weapon. "We want to and are committed to getting to the truth and getting it right,” Bracato said at the news conference. “I've also taken time to talk to the members of the Hoover City Council, the chief of police and others to address serious issues that has caused tension in our country and now in our community."

You and your jackbooted bastards are dragging your feet, Mayor.

"State investigators asked for patience in a statement Thursday, saying, "It is highly likely that prematurely releasing information, including video evidence, would have hampered the investigation’s progress thus far, even to the point of deterring key witnesses. As other witnesses continue to come forward, it is imperative for the integrity of the investigation that SBI continue to keep confidential information Agents obtain."

You've had more than enough time.  You're stonewalling.

CBS News reports:

"A man killed by an officer who mistook him for a gunman at an Alabama mall was shot three times from behind, according to an anatomical review conducted by a forensic pathologist at the request of the slain man's family. Police were responding to reports of a shooting Thanksgiving night at the Riverchase Galleria in Hoover, a suburb of 95,000 people south of Birmingham, when an officer fatally shot 21-year-old Emantic "EJ" Bradford Jr., 21. Police initially blamed Bradford, who they said had a gun in his hand and was responsible for shooting two people at the mall. They later retracted that statement and identified Erron Brown, 20, of Bessemer, as the gunman. Besser was arrested by U.S. Marshals in the Atlanta area Thursday."

Interesting new development:

"National civil rights attorney Ben Crump, who is representing Bradford's family, released the findings of the independent anatomical review during a press conference Monday at The Rock, the church Bradford attended in north Birmingham.  The Rev. Jesse Jackson also attended. Crump said the findings indicate Bradford was shot three times, all from behind -- once in the back of the head, once in the back of the neck and once in the lower right back, near his hip. He said those findings were significant because they indicated Bradford was moving away from officers at the time he was shot. Witnesses have said Bradford, who was licensed to carry a gun, was trying to help usher others away from the gunfire, Crump said. Pathologist Roger Mitchell, who Crump said based his conclusions on autopsy photos and evidence photos as well as observing Bradford's body, found the manner of death to be homicide. All three shots could have proved fatal, the review found."

Gutless piece of human excrement.

"Crump said the findings show the officer should be charged with a crime. "There is nothing that justifies [the officer] shooting EJ as he's moving away from him. You're not a threat when  you're running away," Crump said. "If it was anybody else who shot somebody three times in the back, they'd be charged with murder."

Certainly, true.  Only the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue seem to enjoy carte blanche to murder.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Bradford's father, Emantic Bradford Sr., also spoke at the press conference and gave an impassioned call for justice. "He did not pose a threat to you -- you could have taken him down without even firing a shot," Bradford said, addressing the officer. "That was wrong. My son was murdered by this officer, and that was cowardice."

Certainly, seems so.  Readers are reminded the victim's father is a retired police officer himself.  Ironic, isn't it?

"Bradford said his son's loss has "destroyed" his family. He called for the officer to be charged with murder. "There's no justice if you get off with this," Bradford said. "He needs to be charged with homicide because that's exactly what it is -- it's a murder. How did you justify shooting my son?"

Insult to injury, the jackbooted bastards have yet to identify the officer responsible.  Continue to protect and coddle the savage.

"Bradford's uncle Anthony Thomas also called for a murder charge.  Addressing the officer, he said, "You're a coward. You shot my nephew in the back three times." The officer has not been identified and is on paid administrative leave pending the investigation."

Paid 'vacation.'  Nazi America.  A goddamned de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.

"On Monday, Hoover police announced they would not release evidence in the shooting until the conclusion of the investigation conducted by the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, based on a request Saturday from that agency. Activists have been calling on ALEA and the City of Hoover to release video of the shooting. In a letter to City of Hoover officials by ALEA, the agency asked the city not to release evidence including written reports, electronic records and video because it could affect the integrity of the investigation. Hoover Police Chief Nick Derzis said Monday the city would comply."

The jackbooted bastards are stonewalling.

"We want everyone who lives, works or visits Hoover to know that we are committed to the safety of our city, to healing from these tragic events and to the transparency of the ongoing investigation," a city statement said."

Actions to date scream otherwise.  You have no credibility.  Cannot be trusted.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Crump called for a swift conclusion to the investigation by the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency so video could be released. Crump said the family has met with ALEA and that investigators expressed their condolences and assured them they are working to conclude the investigation as efficiently as possible."

Have had more than enough time to do a bona fide investigation.  Need additional time to concoct a 'defense' for the jackbooted bastard responsible for the murder of this young man?

"We are trying very hard to take them at their word," Crump said. "It's very difficult for this father and this family after they were lied to before."

Egregious problem throughout the entire law enforcement community.  ... Right, Sheriff?  No question, none of you bastards can be trusted in this hell hole County, Bill.  None of you have any credibility.

"But activists who attended the press conference continued their call for the immediate release of the video, with one yelling, "Say no more! Release the damn video." The Bradford family's pastor, Mike McClure Jr., has  said releasing video would help calm growing tensions that have included days of protests. "My concern here is that the longer this goes on, it's like a powder keg," Crump said.  "We need to as quickly as efficiently as possible conclude this investigation so we can restore the trust that was taken on Thanksgiving night when they defamed the character of [Bradford Jr.] and said that he was a criminal."

Too late.  The trust has been gone for decades.

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Think the jackbooted bastards in ICE are not egregiously out of control?  CBS News reports:

"A transgender migrant woman who died in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody in May was beaten and denied proper medical treatment, according to the results of an independent autopsy and lawyers for her family. The private forensic pathologist who conducted the second autopsy at the behest of the family of Roxsana Hernandez Rodriguez concluded the 33-year-old from Honduras likely died May 25 of "severe complications of dehydration," complicated by HIV, after she was transferred to the hospital from ICE's Cibola County Correctional Center in New Mexico. The Transgender Law Center, a civil rights legal group representing Hernandez's family, says Hernandez was repeatedly denied access to medical care when she complained of vomiting and diarrhea, and was only able to see a doctor after suffering the symptoms for days. "According to observations of other detainees who were with Ms. Hernandez Rodriguez, the diarrhea and vomiting episodes persisted over multiple days with no medical evaluation or treatment, until she was gravely ill," the autopsy says."

Gets worse.  Get this:

"The independent autopsy also uncovered "evidence of physical abuse," with deep bruising on the left and right sides of her chest, extending to her back, "indicative of blows, and/or kicks, and possible strikes with [a] blunt object." Her body also had deep soft tissue bruising on her wrists "typical of handcuff injuries." The autopsy says the bruising wasn't visible externally. "She came to the U.S. seeking protection, and instead was met with torture," Egyes said."

Not surprisingly, the jackbooted bastards in ICE deny all:

"ICE denies that Hernandez was abused while in their custody.  In a statement, the agency said Hernandez was admitted on May 17 to Cibola General Hospital with symptoms of pneumonia, dehydration and complications associated with untreated HIV before her death. "ICE takes very seriously the health, safety and welfare of those in our care, including those who come into ICE custody with prior medical conditions or who have never before received appropriate medical care," an ICE spokesperson said in a statement. "Any death that happens in ICE custody is a cause for concern, and the agency will continue its full review of this case according to standard protocols."

Jesus Christ.  Congenital liars.  ... Just like their fuhrer in the Oval Office.

"The Transgender Law Center says Hernandez was an asylum seeker fleeing persecution in Honduras and hoped to help her family build a better life. Lynly Egyes, the Transgender Law Center's director of litigation, called Hernandez's death "preventable." In a statement released through the Transgender Law Center, Hernandez's sisters in Honduras said her death has been "extremely painful" for her family. They said Hernandez had dreams of opening up a beauty salon in the U.S. to help them. They said she fled Honduras because transgender people there face discrimination. "It's difficult to accept that she was taken from us because of negligence, because of not giving her support and medication that she needed, because they treated her like an animal," the statement said. "It's not fair. It's not fair that she fled Honduras looking for a better life and instead she was murdered. Now all we have left with is the hope that we can see justice for her."

There is no justice in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Many questions remain about what happened to Hernandez in the days leading up to her death, according to attorney R. Andrew Free, who is also representing her family. ICE hasn't released what's known as a detainee death review — an internal investigation required anytime someone dies in ICE custody — nor the results of the official autopsy conducted by the New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator. A request from CBS News for a copy of that autopsy report is pending, and Free said he also has yet to see the initial autopsy."

Incredible, isn't it.  Raw nazism.

"But Free said he's been able to piece together some of what apparently happened in Hernandez's last days based on interviews with more than a dozen other transgender migrant women with whom Hernandez traveled to the U.S. Free said Hernandez arrived with a migrant caravan at the San Ysidro Port of Entry in San Diego on May 9, where ICE said she applied for admission to the U.S. She was held in U.S. Customs and Border Protection custody for several days and spent time in the "hieleras," which migrants have described as unsafe and overcrowded "ice boxes." Hernandez was apparently already ill because she was admitted briefly to a hospital, Free said, before she was transferred back into CBP custody. On May 13, Hernandez entered ICE custody in San Diego, and she was transferred two days later to an ICE facility in El Paso, according to ICE. She arrived May 16 at the Cibola County Correctional Center in Milan, New Mexico, which houses a specialized unit for transgender women."

Gets worse:

"Before she arrived at Cibola, Hernandez apparently traveled through several states via bus and plane with other detained transgender women who were being transferred to the facility, said Free, citing interviews with those women. The women said Hernandez's condition deteriorated and she became weaker while in transit. They said she was vomiting and having diarrhea, but she was denied medical care, handcuffed, wasn't allowed to go to the bathroom and wasn't given enough water. Other detainees asked for water for her, Free said. CoreCivic, which operates the facility for ICE, said in a statement that Hernandez was only at the Cibola facility for about 12 hours before she was transferred to a hospital. ICE said she was admitted to Cibola General Hospital and later airlifted to Lovelace Medical Center, where she remained in intensive care until she died on May 25. Staff there listed her preliminary cause of death as cardiac arrest, according to ICE."

Most interesting, get this:

"Though the timeline remains unclear, Free said he believes Hernandez was beaten while she was at Cibola, because the women interviewed said they believed they would have seen it had she been abused while they were all detained together, and there was no indication she was abused while in the hospital.

"Free and the Transgender Law Center this week filed a notice of wrongful death tort claim in New  Mexico, the first step in filing a lawsuit in the case."

No end to it.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

More of the same.  Outrageous injustice.  NPR reports:

"Thirty-three states have laws meant to compensate wrongly-convicted people after they win release from prison. But in many states, like Massachusetts, complicated laws mean it can take months or even years for those released from prison to get any help or money to restart their lives. Fred Clay had just turned 16 when Boston police arrested him for the fatal shooting of a taxi driver in 1979. He was charged with murder which was based on a routine practice back then: sharpening the fuzzy memory of a witness through hypnosis."

Voodoo 'psychology.'  Employed to f--k over the innocent.

"The testimony of that witness helped send Fred Clay to prison where he stayed for almost 38 years. Then his case caught the attention of lawyers working on innocence projects, aimed at exonerating the wrongly convicted. It took Clay's lawyers almost six years to convince the state that his murder conviction was deeply flawed and unjust — partly because of the now-debunked use of hypnosis. Just over a year ago, that murder conviction was thrown out by a superior court judge in Boston and Clay was released. He could qualify for up to $1 million in compensation from Massachusetts for being wrongly convicted. But so far, he hasn't seen a dime."

The nazi bastards drag their feet, obfuscate, stonewall:

"To win compensation in Massachusetts, people like Clay have to sue the state and prove they're actually innocent, not just released on a technicality. As Clay and his supporters have learned, that process can be lengthy and frustrating. Three months out of prison Fred Clay was still jobless, surviving on food stamps and some of the money raised by his supporters. Filling out job applications meant accounting for the 38-year gap in his employment history. And while Clay's conviction was overturned by a judge, an employer checking for a criminal background would still see his arrest for murder."

Goddamned f--king nazi justice in a fascist police-state.

Here are the consequences for you goddamned law and order Republican national socialists:

"You'd expect someone wrongfully locked up for almost four decades to be very bitter. While Clay is angry, he is mostly grieving. Clay never learned to drive, he never got married, and until recently, he never learned to become self-sufficient. If he receives the million dollar payment — Massachusetts caps such awards — it would amount to $26,000 for each year he was locked up. "Thirty-eight years out of my life — that's not going to make up for that. It's small kind, small money," he said. "They made me pay for someone else's mistakes all these years. So why can't they just admit to their mistake and just not fight it? Okay, you deserve something. So here we go."

Doesn't happen in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.

"If Clay were on parole, he'd be entitled to reentry services, like a social worker and help with finding housing and jobs. But so far, Clay hasn't gotten any of this support from the state. Massachusetts' top attorney admits that the process to win compensation in the state has set a very high bar, and one that possibly should be lowered."

Jesus Christ.  That's the best this clueless piece of crap has to offer?  LOL.  Pitiful.  Goddamned pitiful.

"It would be really worthwhile to look at changing the law," said Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey. "If the state erroneously convicted you, right, and deprived you of liberty, you should be compensated for that. I would like to explore with the legislature if there could be a different process."

Give me a break.  Do the right thing.  Resign in disgrace.

Think the following isn't an egregious travesty?  Get this:

"Local Innocence Projects are also pushing for change, and pointing to states like California that just passed a law to get quicker help for exonerated people. Less than half of the roughly 2,300 people who were wrongfully convicted in the U.S. got any compensation, according to a study from the National Registry of Exonerations. Some states don't have any laws to compensate innocent people they imprison."

Land of the free.  Home of the brave.

"Early on a recent morning, he's up with the songbirds and dressed in his uniform — navy pants and a maroon shirt with his name stitched over the right pocket. The job he landed nine months ago is precision-grinding aviation parts. Starting pay was $12 an hour, and last month came his first raise to $14 an hour. He's grateful for the job. "They realized that I had a raw deal and they wanted to give me a break. They've been real nice," he said. "I like to work. I'm dependable and I just wanted to get a chance to prove that to people. And they gave me a chance to do that." As good as it feels to earn some money, Clay's paycheck is no match for rising rents in Lowell, an old factory city north of Boston. He's being priced out as sprawl reaches the city. His $650-a-month rent gets him a basement bedroom that reminds him of a prison cell. While he's frustrated with his current reality, Clay keeps trying to reclaim what was taken from him."

We've got to do better.  Far better.  Otherwise?  ... Hear the rumble?

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

In follow up to a recent edition, CBS News reports:

"Amber Guyger, a white former Dallas police officer, has been indicted on a murder charge for the killing of Botham Jean, her black unarmed neighbor. Guyger has said she mistakenly went to his apartment instead of her own and shot him. The court records were posted Friday before authorities were set to announce a grand jury's decision on the case. She was arrested days after the Sept. 6 shooting that killed Jean, 26, who was from the Caribbean island nation of St. Lucia. Guyger told investigators she mistook Jean's apartment for her own and thought she'd encountered an intruder. She has since been fired from the department and Jean's family has filed a lawsuit against Guyger and the city of Dallas.

"Guyger told investigators that after finishing a 15-hour shift, she returned home in-uniform and parked on the fourth floor of her apartment complex's garage, rather than the third floor, where her unit was located, according to an affidavit prepared by the Texas Rangers. She said she got to what she thought was her apartment — Jean's was directly above hers — and found the door ajar. She opened it to find a figure standing in the darkness. She said she pulled her gun and fired twice after the person ignored her commands. Lee Merritt, an attorney for the Jean family, has said the document is an attempt to "condone what happened, give her a break." Guyger has since been fired from the department and Jean's family has filed a lawsuit against Guyger and the city of Dallas. The federal suit argues Guyger used excessive force in the shooting and contends the department did not give her adequate training."

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

The following is proof positive aggressive stupidity rages on, unabated, in law enforcement.  ABC News reports:

"Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said Friday that a police officer who decorated a precinct Christmas tree with items such as a cigarette pack and police tape will be fired. Frey called the tree a "racist display" and said the unidentified officer's termination is necessary. "This behavior is racist, despicable, and is well beneath the standards of any person who serves the city of Minneapolis," Frey said in a statement. "The offending party will be fired before the day is over. Shifting the culture of the police department requires swift and decisive action. Termination is necessary — both to discipline the officer and to send a clear message: Chief (Medaria) Arradondo and I will not tolerate conduct that departs from our values." The head of the police officer's union did not immediately return a message from The Associated Press seeking comment on the officer's firing. Arradondo called the display "racially insensitive" and said it was removed. He said he has started a full investigation into the incident. "I am ashamed and appalled by the behavior of those who would feel comfortable to act in such a manner that goes against our core department values of trust, accountability and professional service," Arradondo said in a statement."

Before dismissing the above, consider the following.  Here is the problem:

"The tree is in the precinct police station on the city's North Side, which has a fractured relationship with police. The precinct was the site of more than two weeks of protests after the 2015 fatal police shooting of Jamar Clark, a black man. While Arradondo said the police department has made positive changes, "this recent incident shows we still have much work ahead." A picture of the tree circulated online before the items were removed. They included a pack of Newport cigarettes, a cup from Popeyes Louisiana Chicken, a bag of Takis and a can of Steel Reserve malt liquor beer. According to the Star Tribune , City Council Member Phillipe Cunningham wrote on Facebook that an officer hung the inappropriate items as a prank after the tree was decorated. Also Friday, the Minneapolis City Council voted to reduce the mayor's proposed police budget for 2019 by more than $1 million."

-- Think the achingly clueless bastards in law enforcement won't stupidly try to make up the shortfall by issuing additional phony tickets?  LOL.

CBS News reports:

"The commander of a Minneapolis police precinct has been replaced following uproar over Christmas tree decorations that the mayor said amounted to a "racist display." The Christmas tree at the Fourth Precinct station on the city's north side was decorated with items such as Newport cigarettes, police crime tape, a can of malt liquor and a Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen cup. Minneapolis Police spokesman John Elder confirmed Monday that inspector Aaron Biard had been removed as commander of the precinct. Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said in a statement that Assistant Chief Mike Kjos will be responsible for the precinct's day-to-day operations until a replacement is found. Kjos previously served as the precinct's commander, the Star Tribune reported. Two Minneapolis officers were placed on paid leave Friday for their apparent involvement in the decorations. Mayor Jacob Frey called the decorations "despicable" and said they amounted to a "racist display." A picture of the tree circulated online before the items were removed.

    "This is a photo of a racist and derogatory Christmas tree at the Minneapolis 4th precinct. @jeremiah4north @CunninghamMPLS @Jacob_Frey We must demand an apology and commitment to build better community relations. This is unacceptable. pic.twitter.com/xNq4CUZUu5
    — North by Northside (@northxnorthside) November 30, 2018"

What is so surprisingly remarkable is the fact this shit still goes on, -- despite the current intense spotlight on law enforcement.  If you're a good cop and want to retain your job, why engage in aggressive stupidity?

"Frey initially called for the officer involved to be fired by day's end, but later recognized that a process has to be followed. Instead, the two officers were placed on paid leave while the department investigates. That investigation continues, Elder said Monday. Minneapolis NAACP President Leslie Redmond said Friday the incident was proof of a problem with the culture within the Minneapolis Police Department, CBS station WCCO-TV reports. "I believe that there are a lot of people working in Minnesota to actually produce justice, but I also think there are many forces working against it, and we have to recognize that this is a systemic issue, and it's not just good enough to fire the individual who put the decorations up," Redmond said. "We need to look into how many officers actually walked past this and was OK with it."

At least, he's trying to solve the problem.  In Llano County, however, things get buried, ignored, stonewalled.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"In a statement Monday, Frey said he supports the chief's decision to remove the precinct's commander and said "it reflects his resolve to make meaningful change." Arradondo has called the display "racially insensitive." "I am ashamed and appalled by the behavior of those who would feel comfortable to act in such a manner that goes against our core department values of trust, accountability and professional service," Arradondo said in an earlier statement. A message left for Biard at the precinct was not immediately returned Monday."

Here's precisely why this is far more than a chicken shit offense by an idiot cop:

"The city's north side has a fractured relationship with police. The precinct was the site of more than two weeks of protests after the 2015 fatal police shooting of Jamar Clark, a black man. The Twin Cities Coalition 4 Justice 4 Jamar, a group formed after Clark's shooting, has called for the immediate termination of those involved."

Clean house.  Make a clean sweep.  Do the right thing.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

More of the same.  This time, to one of their own.  CBS News reports:

"Three St. Louis police officers were indicted Thursday for allegedly beating an undercover colleague during a 2017 protest and, along with a fourth officer, conspiring to cover up the crime. The U.S. Department of Justice announced the indictments of Officers Dustin Boone, Randy Hays, Christopher Myers and Bailey Colletta. All four are suspended without pay, the city said. The indictment follows an FBI investigation requested last year by St. Louis police. The protests erupted in September 2017 following the acquittal of former police officer Jason Stockley. Stockley, who is white, was found not guilty in the 2011 death of a black suspect, Anthony Lamar Smith."

Imagine that.  Couldn't be, could it?  Nazi justice in Nazi America.

"The indictment alleges that Boone, Hays and Myers beat the undercover officer during a protest on Sept. 17, 2017, and that the three along with Colletta covered it up. It is believed that the officers did not know that the man was a fellow officer and mistook him for a member of the crowd, reports CBS affiliate KMOV. The indictment alleges Boone, Hays, and Myers threw the undercover officer to the ground and then kicked and struck him while he was compliant and not posing a physical threat, the station reports."

Best in law enforcement?  ... Right, Sheriff?

"These are serious charges and the vigorous enforcement of civil rights is essential to maintaining public trust in law enforcement," U.S. Attorney Jeff Jensen said in a statement, adding that the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department "recognized the importance of this investigation and its leadership has cooperated at every turn." St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner said in a statement that she has dismissed 91 cases related to the four officers. She said she will continue to review further cases where the officers' testimony or involvement is fundamental. She called their alleged actions "disheartening."

What they are is ubiquitous, right, Sheriff?

"Police integrity is at the core of the community's confidence in the criminal justice system," she said."

Sadly, there is none.  Certainly, not here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Quite the contrary.  A systemic cancer.

NPR reports:

"A federal grand jury indicted three members of the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department on charges of beating a fellow police officer who was working undercover during a 2017 protest. A fourth officer also was indicted and accused conspiring to cover up the incident. The Department of Justice announced the indictments in a statement Thursday. "The indictment charges Officers Dustin Boone, 35, Bailey Colletta, 25, Randy Hays, 31, and Christopher Myers, 27, with various felony charges, including deprivation of constitutional rights, conspiracy to obstruct justice, destruction of evidence, and obstruction of justice." According to the indictment, officers Boone, Hays and Myers inflicted "bodily injury" on an undercover officer identified in the court document only as "L.H.", an officer and detective who is described as having 22 years of experience with the police department. The beating of L.H. occurred "while he was compliant and not posing a threat to anyone." The incident occurred during a September 17, 2017, protest against the acquittal of a white police officer who was tried in the death of a black suspect in 2011."

Get this:

"The indictment includes what appears to be text messages among three officers before the protests in which they talk about their plans to beat protesters."

Jackbooted motherf--kers. Best in law enforcement, Sheriff?

"The fourth officer, Bailey Colleta, is accused of aiding in a cover-up by lying to the grand jury investigating the incident. Colleta and Hays were romantically involved at the time of the protests and during the federal investigation, according to the indictment. All four officers were suspended without pay, according to city officials cited by the Associated Press. Each of the officers faces potential maximum penalties of at least 20 years in prison."

Not good enough. Nowhere near.  Statutes need to change to reflect reality and seriousness of the charges.

"The federal investigation, announced in November 2017, came after local political and religious leaders denounced alleged heavy-handed tactics by police against protesters angry about the September 2017 acquittal of white former police officer Jason Stockley. He was charged with first-degree murder in the 2011 shooting death of Anthony Lamar Smith after a car chase."

Nazi justice.  In a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  ... Hear the rumble?  An unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming.  Too deaf to hear?

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

Incompetence and gutlessness continue to run rampant in law enforcement.  ABC News reports:

"Another Florida deputy who responded to February's Parkland high school massacre has been suspended. The Broward Sheriff's Office confirmed Friday that Deputy Edward Eason had been placed on restricted duty, which means he must surrender his gun and badge. The announcement comes two weeks after the public safety commission that investigated the shooting revealed failures in law enforcement's response. Body camera footage contradicted the deputy's report and showed that he delayed entering the building. The commission said former student Nikolas Cruz had already killed 17 and wounded 17 others by the time Eason arrived, but some people inside needed immediate help."

Yet, his fellow jackbooted bastards continue to support him and others despite the truth:

"Broward Sheriff's Office Deputies Association President Jeff Bell told The Miami Herald that Eason and other deputies were being "scapegoated" by Broward Sheriff Scott Israel. The sheriff's captain who oversaw the initial response recently resigned and the first sergeant to arrive was suspended."

Tough shit.  ... Right, Sheriff?

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

In follow up to an earlier edition, NBC News reports:

"Prosecutors in Minnesota are seeking to file a second-degree murder charge against a former Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot a woman in 2017 after she called for help, court documents show. Mohamed Noor had been previously charged with third-degree murder and a manslaughter charge for shooting Justine Damond, 40, on July 15, 2017, after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in an alley behind her home. Prosecutors on Thursday filed a motion seeking to amend the criminal complaint against him to add a charge of second-degree murder before his scheduled April 1 trial, saying that there is probable cause that Noor "intended to kill" Damond "when he aimed and fired at her."

Readers will recall:

"After Damond, whose last name is Ruszczyk but who was to be married and had already taken her fiance’s last name, called police Noor and his partner arrived in their sport-utility vehicle and she approached the SUV, officials have said. Noor’s partner who was at the wheel said that he was startled by a loud sound just before Damond approached the open driver’s side window and that Noor fired from the passenger seat, striking her, state investigators have said. The motion to add the second-degree murder charge filed Thursday says that Noor "fired with tragic accuracy, managing to send a 9 millimeter bullet across his partner's body and through the narrow space of the open driver's side window" and that Damond was struck in her torso and the wound caused almost immediate death. A second-degree murder charge carries a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison if convicted; third-degree murder carries a maximum sentence of 25 years, according to the state Office of the Revisor of Statutes website. With a third-degree murder charge, a jury could find Noor guilty if jurors determined that he had no idea who he shot at and that he killed Damond without sufficient justification, prosecutors said in the motion. "The evidence in the case also supports findings that the defendant knew exactly what he was doing and that he intended to do it," prosecutors wrote, adding that "the circumstances surrounding the crime show that the defendant acted with the intent to kill" and that he fired at Damond from no more than six feet away."

ICE poses an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  CNN News reports:

"A coalition of immigrant rights groups Monday sued on behalf of a US citizen they allege was illegally detained and almost deported because of an ICE request. The federal complaint says authorities in Monroe County, Florida ignored Peter Brown's repeated statements that he was a US citizen and continued to hold him in response to a detention request from US Immigration and Customs Enforcement even after a judge had ordered his release. "Despite his repeated protests to multiple jail officers, his offer to produce proof, and the jail's own records, the Sheriff's Office held Mr. Brown so that ICE could deport him to Jamaica — a country where he has never lived and knows no one," the lawsuit says."

Get this:

"The Sheriff's Office ignored all the indications that it was illegally detaining Mr. Brown. It did nothing to investigate his citizenship. It did not contact ICE to pass along this urgent information, or ask for a review of Mr. Brown's files. It did not seek any further information from Mr. Brown or anyone else. It simply held Mr. Brown, in violation of his constitutional rights and after he was entitled to release under state law, so that he could be picked up by ICE and deported from the country." Brown, according to the lawsuit, was born in Philadelphia and had only visited Jamaica once for a day on a cruise. The Monroe County Sheriff's Office and ICE did not immediately respond to requests for comment."

What the f--k could these criminal jackbooted bastards say?  ... Right, Sheriff?

"It's shocking and not right that somebody can lose their human rights and have all dignity stripped away simply because someone delivers a piece of paper or signs a form," Brown said in a statement released by the American Civil Liberties Union, one of the organizations representing him."

Nazi America.  De facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  ... Hear the rumble?  An unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming.

"Brown was detained in April after turning himself in for a probation violation, then eventually transferred from a local jail to the Krome immigrant detention center in Miami, the lawsuit says. He was released from ICE custody after a friend sent a copy of his birth certificate to ICE, according to the suit. "After confirming that Mr. Brown was a U.S. citizen, ICE hastily arranged for his release from Krome. Before he left, they confiscated all the documents they had given him regarding his impending deportation," the lawsuit says."

ICE remains determinedly, egregiously out of control.  No hope, no chance of desperately needed change.  Too jackbooted nazi.  Consequently, needs to be abolished.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

More of the same old shit.  Egregious injustice.  No seeming end to it.  NBC News reports:

"An arbitrator says the white officer who was fired after fatally shooting a 12-year-old black boy playing with a pellet gun won't get back his job with Cleveland police. Timothy Loehmann was cleared in the shooting of Tamir Rice but was fired in May 2017 for failing to disclose to Cleveland that he'd been previously forced out by another department. Loehmann challenged his firing in an arbitration process. The police union confirmed Tuesday that Loehmann lost that challenge. An attorney for the union, Henry Hilow, says it is considering appealing that decision."

Crock of shit.  The bastard should have been tried for murder.  Escaped justice, while this kid needlessly lost his life.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Loehmann shot Tamir Rice within seconds of a cruiser skidding to a stop outside a Cleveland recreation center in November 2014. The boy's mother, Samaria Rice, has said she hopes Loehmann won't work as a police officer again."

No goddamned justice.  None.  Fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Kill a cop even in self defense, guess what?  Wind up getting executed in most states for capital murder.  Why doesn't the same standard apply to the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue?  Why not?  ... Right, Sheriff?

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

No justice.  Another criminal jackbooted bastard in blue skates.  ABC News reports:

"A police officer in Aurora, Colorado, will not face criminal charges in the July fatal shooting of armed homeowner Richard "Gary" Black, a Purple Heart and Bronze Star recipient who had just moments prior killed an intruder who was allegedly attacking his grandson. In a letter announcing his office's decision, Adams County District Attorney Dave Young said officers had "repeatedly ordered" Black to drop his gun and show his hands. "The man ignored the commands and continued to advance toward the officers while armed with a handgun," Young said in his letter."

The District Attorney is protecting his own rather than the public he has sworn to protect as prosecutor.

"Around 1:30 a.m. on July 30, police were responding to reports of an intruder attacking a child at Black's home, authorities said. Shortly after arriving, officers heard gunfire within the house. Young said officers saw a white male, later identified as Black, emerge from a hallway. Black, 73, had just fatally shot 26-year-old Dajon Harper, who'd been allegedly assaulting Black's 11-year-old grandson in the family's bathroom, authorities said. "The male (Black) was armed with a handgun in one hand and held a flashlight in the other," Young said in his letter. "Officers gave the male repeated verbal commands to drop the gun and show his hands. The male ignored the commands and appeared to conceal himself from the officers' view." Young said that when Black emerged again and entered the living room, he was still holding the gun. "He quickly raised his flashlight toward the front door where the officers stood with their guns drawn," Young said. "With a split second, an officer fired his weapon four times at the male, killing him." On Monday, authorities identified the officer who shot Black as Officer Drew Limbaugh."

Jackbooted bastard.  Think not?  Read on:

"In bodycam video released on the Aurora Police Department's YouTube page, Black can be seen inside the house wearing a robe as officers yell: "Drop the gun!" and "Let me see your hands!" Black walks toward the entrance of the home carrying what police said was a gun and a flashlight and Limbaugh opens fire. "Don't reach for that gun! Do not touch the gun!" the officer then yells as Black moves around on the floor."

Here is precisely why he is a clueless jackbooted piece of human excrement:

"After the shooting, investigators learned from Black's family that the Vietnam War veteran had "a significant hearing impairment." At a news conference in August, Aurora Police Chief Nick Metz said he did not know what Black was able to hear and not hear. Siddhartha Rathod, an attorney for the Black family, called the district attorney's report "very one-sided" and "biased" Tuesday and said the case should have been presented to a jury or grand jury."

Jesus Christ.  Goddamned right.  Why wasn't it?  Readers are reminded in our outrageously f--ked up system there is no separation between prosecutors, police, and judges.  None.  None at all.  They're nearly always in bed with each other.  ... As in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?

Get this:

"The report made statements such as 'Mr. Black ignored the commands of law enforcement as he attempted to conceal himself.' The video itself shows that to be false. The officers never announced themselves. They never told Mr. Black that they were police. So standing from outside of the house, in the dark, the officers fired in on Mr. Black," Rathod told ABC News. "Even if Mr. Black could have heard the officers, no reasonable person standing in their home with a firearm would simply drop the firearm simply by hearing 'drop the firearm, drop the gun.'"

The very same shit goes on right here in this County, right, Sheriff?  On a variety of different issues.  Justice?  There is none.  Readers, these bastards do as they please.  Usually, with impunity.  Time to wake up.

"Rathod also said Limbaugh, an officer with the department for three years, should not have been working the streets that night. Limbaugh had been reviewed for another police-involved shooting that took place 30 days prior, authorities said, and returned to duty 18 days after the shooting after receiving peer support and spending time with the department's psychological services. "When an officer is involved in a shooting, officers need time to recover and there needs to be a procedure in place to give them time to re-acclimate back into the force, to re-acclimate back into night duty. And this officer didn’t have that time. He should not have been put back on the force so quickly," Rathod said. Metz said Monday in the video release that Limbaugh remained in a "non-enforcement" role and that an internal investigation would begin."

Too little.  Far too late.

"This was a heartbreaking and tragic incident," Metz said. "Our thoughts and prayers remain with Mr. Black's family and those involved."

The Chief is full of shit.  Needs to resign in disgrace.  ... Right, Sheriff?  -- About as clueless as you, Bill.

"Rathod said Black's family was still in therapy after the attack and Black's shooting death. "Mr. Black was the rock of this family. He was a husband, a father and a grandfather. And he would've been the person guiding this family through the tragic situation that they're dealing with, but he's not there right now. So the family is still recovering," he said."

Goes on and on.  No justice.  The American Way.  Nazi America.  When is this shit finally going to end?  All of it.  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred thirty seven weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.

Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.  Who the hell are they?

When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised? Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff?  Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up. Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for?

Ferociously pointedly, why is the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.  Too busy lining County coffers with bogus tickets?

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

No question.  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  ... Right, Sheriff?  NBC News reports:

"A woman booked into a men's jail in Miami after she was wrongly deemed transgender had her lawsuit over the incident upheld. Fiordaliza Pichardo was booked as a male at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center after a staff doctor and nurse wrongfully classified her as a male following her arrest for an outstanding warrant stemming from an earlier drug charge, according to her lawsuit filed in federal court. She spent about 10 hours in a holding cell with about 40 men before she was released on bail, her lawsuit claims. Pichardo was jailed in December 2013 and initially sued in September 2016, but the claim was thrown out by a federal judge who said the jail employees were protected against claims of neglect. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit on Nov. 21 reinstated her lawsuit against Miami-Dade County, the county's corrections department and the nurse and doctor at the jail where she was booked. The ruling found that the nurse and doctor “knew that sending a woman to an all-male prison would pose a risk of serious harm to her safety," but that the pair "took no steps at all to verify Mrs. Pichardo’s sex before reclassifying her as male."

Needless to say, this case will be carefully followed.

Amazing how some of the seemingly smallest things in life can turn out to be the most significant.  ... Especially, to a combat soldier.  Seatbelts on.  CBS News reports:

"John Metzler keeps the letter he said got him through the Vietnam War tucked behind a picture on a shelf in a humble home in Wendell, Idaho. "It's written by a girl in the sixth grade," John said. John was a 23-year-old Army helicopter sniper and didn't know the girl.  "When you got up in the morning you always wondered whether you would see the sun go down at night," John said. Because he had such deadly job in such a thankless war, that little girl's note mattered. It arrived on Christmas Day 1970 and it simply read in part, "Dear Serviceman, I want to give my sincere thanks for going over to war to fight for us. The class hopes you will be able to come home." It was signed, DonnaCaye. Obviously, it could have gone to any soldier. But John took it very personally."

Clearly:

"Fact is I think it means more today than it did when I got it," John said. It's because she said thank you. Not long ago, John asked some family members to find DonnaCaye. But they couldn't, or at least that's what they told John. DonnaCaye Ludemann Sica is actually alive and well and able to deliver a second thank you message — this time in person. "I remember writing the letter," she said. "I was amazed that I could have the opportunity to write to a serviceman and maybe make his life a little simpler for a couple of minutes." She took the assignment seriously and continues to do so today. That's why she flew from Florida to surprise an unsuspecting soldier. "You're real," John said once he saw her. "I'm real," DonnaCaye said. It has become almost cliche to thank a veteran for his or her service. But John said we still need to say the words because they're not only appreciated. Sometimes they're desperately needed."

... Hey, Sheriff?  Is it true Llano County Attorney Becky Lange has advised you to stay out of the "Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764" fiasco?  That right, Bill?  Isn't that obstruction of justice?  Also true your deputies have advised the Bolens to accept the status quo and not force the no-trespassing issue with Greene?  If so, isn't that also obstruction and official oppression?  When will you do your job, Bill?  As an elected official, you answer to the public, forget?  -- No honor?  ... No honor at all?  If the foregoing allegations are indeed true, didn't you swear an oath to uphold the law and Constitution?  Why aren't you doing so?  No guts?

Your deputy has been accused of abusing authority.  What action have you taken other than ignore the complaint?  Why aren't both Rodriguez and the County Attorney under criminal investigation?  The County Attorney appears to be obstructing justice, accepting the word of Greene in lieu of two surveyor companies who strongly assert otherwise.  Both the County Attorney and District Attorney have ignored complaints.  Par for the course in Llano County, isn't it?  Failed to do their jobs.  No surprise there, right, Bill?  Both receiving 'special consideration' up to and/or including a bribe from Greene?  Regardless, clearly, no justice in Nazi Llano County.  Bottom line?  Desperate need for an outside criminal investigation.  Conveniently, forget?  This County is ruled by men, certainly not rule of law and the United States Constitution.

Precisely, why there is desperate need for a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, and prosecute criminal law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges in a special court whose only mandate would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.  Until that happens, the criminal bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole County will continue to do as they please.

The enclosed emails were sent to the Llano County Attorney and Sheriff, respectively, vis a vis the above matter.  Remain unanswered.  The County Attorney appears to be protecting and defending the deputy at behest of Kingsland property owner Johnny Greene.  May have received some consideration from Greene up to and including a bribe.  Are the County Attorney, Greene, and the Deputy under criminal investigation?  If not, why not?

Re:  Berardi Property Rights Denial-Damage To Pace Arrow-Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764

Counselor:

As you're well aware, we have an outrageously corrupt, abusive, achingly inept Llano County Sheriff's Office here in Nazi Llano County.  Worse, you and your office aid and abet these SS jackbooted bastards in black.  The issue at the moment is the same it's been the last six months.

How is it two surveyor companies, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, even the goddamned Sheriff himself now states Kingsland resident James Berardi owns the lots in contention all these months?

Yet, you ludicrously assert that's not the County's legal position.  It's not?  Why not?  You claim you're not a real estate expert.  Rather than accept the advice of two surveyor companies, the Precinct 3 Commissioner, the Appraisal District, the Tax Office, and even the Sheriff himself, you've inexplicably chosen to follow the advice of property owner Johnny Greene, -- who conveniently happens to be reportedly in the oil industry.

Question to be asked.  Could you have received any 'consideration' in return, -- up to and including a bribe?  Only way to know for sure is for the District Attorney to conduct a criminal investigation.  Apparently, there has been none.  If not, why not?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to this Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.

Our achingly useless, worthless, gutless Sheriff has ignored an email vis a vis the damage this jackbooted thug is responsible for.  Interestingly, his fellow officers believe him to be an idiot.  Yet, the Sheriff continued to defend this piece of human excrement until he realized  this entire fiasco would not be swept under the carpet.

Rodriguez is indeed an idiot.  Would you believe this piece of crap ordered the motor home to be moved on to an unmarked unused Llano County road? That motor home has indeed been moved back to where it was parked before Rodriguez forced it to be moved.  Why hasn't the County paid for the cost of moving it back?  To say nothing of the damage.

Equally pointedly, why is it the County has allowed Theresa Ahrens to park and live in her tiny cottage on that very same road?  Why hasn't she been evicted by the County?  Why was she assessed taxes on an adjacent improvement she doesn't own?

Why is it, Counselor, Johnny Greene is paying for the attorney retained by Ms. Ahrens?  Is Greene attempting to make this all go away by bribery?  Greene has also informed Berardi he is going to sue.  For what?  Has Greene lost his mind?

What about Wells who installed a $4500 septic system on a lot turns out he does not own as a result of Greene, an outrageously inept County, to say nothing of the Llano County Attorney who remains equally determinedly clueless?

How about Bolen who hasn't a pot to piss in, but was nonetheless f--ked over by Greene to say nothing of an egregiously inept County, to say nothing of you and your goddamned equally incompetent office?

None of this is going away, Counselor, -- any time soon.  Will not be swept under the carpet as all the other crap going on in this hell hole County.  Not a chance.  Expect a full expose in this publication whether or not this outrageous fiasco finally gets resolved.  Including full public exposure of both the Sheriff and his jackbooted thug.

Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred thirty six weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.  Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.

Who are they, Sheriff?  Their past history?  An ongoing investigation remains a lame bullshit excuse.  How can you and your goons be trusted when you refuse to disclose information?  One hundred thirty six weeks.  Especially, your egregious failure to disclose the identity of the officers who pulled the trigger.  To cover your sorry ass, Sheriff?  Those of your thugs?  The people have a right to know what happened, how it went down.  You don't understand that, Sheriff?  Sadly, clearly, you answer to no one.  Including taxpayers.  Especially, taxpayers.

Until you and your goons come clean, doubt will remain this was indeed a good shoot.  The longer you drag your feet, the greater the doubt.  Think not?  Wake up.  Your credibility has tanked.  Isn't getting any better as this bullshit continues unabated.  One hundred thirty six weeks.   Still no identification of the officers involved  ... Can't get your stories straight?  In line?  Discrepancy between LCSO and DPS? Wake up, Sheriff.  The public no longer buys the bullshit.  No longer trusts you.  On this and many, many other issues.  You have no credibility.  Absolutely, none.

Readers, this is but one of about four other highly questionable killings by law enforcement in Llano County in the last decade or so.  There was one within the City of Llano, another in a field near Fuzzy's Corner, Buchanan Dam, yet another in Point Tella, Buchanan Dam, still another in Tow.  If there are any others I may have neglected to mention, kindly email.

It's time the public be fully informed.  -- Know what we're dealing with here and how 'law' 'enforcement' operates in this hell hole County.  If these jackbooted bastards are not reined in, the life lost could be yours courtesy of a law enforcement system that is no longer accountable to anyone.  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

The Sheriff seems to have no clue the people who pay him and his goons are entitled to know whom is killing whom and why.  This shit always seems to be swept under the carpet.  Ignored.  The attitude of these jackbooted sons of bitches is trust us.  They can't be.  They've lied too many times.  Refuse to be accountable to anyone.  We live in a goddamned fascist police-state where law enforcement does as it pleases. Usually, with impunity.  That has to change.

The Texas Rangers have become rubber stamp to atrocities committed by law enforcement.  This also has to change.  No one is holding law enforcement accountable any longer.  No one.  No one in state or federal government. This is precisely why Ferguson triggered such an uproar.  There was no justice there.  None here.  None anywhere.  Officers are abusive, corrupt, inept.

Falsely ticket and arrest the innocent to line County coffers.  Court fees charged continue to be horrendous.  -- Aren't taxpayers already looted to pay these costs?  Aren't you boys not only double f--king those falsely accused, but taxpayers also hellaciously looted to pay the very same costs?   Yet, the criminal bastards in power in Llano continue to pile on the fees. This is nothing more than goddamned bullshit.  This money finds its way into the pockets of the corrupt, abusive bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole.

Would you believe the last time the Sheriff's Office happened to be 'audited' during the Garrett regime, reportedly, auditors couldn't figure out what went where and why? Yet, surprise, surprise.  Nothing was done.  There has to be transparency.  There is none.  Why would these thieving bastards want any?  ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  How else could they so easily steal and loot with virtual impunity?  Worse, this reinforces jackbooted power in this goddamned, godforsaken hell hole County.

The public has a right to know the histories of the Sheriff's goons.  Clearly, the Sheriff doesn't think so.  That is, where they came from.  Why they left where they were.  What is happening here is the Sheriff is using 'personnel matters' as a convenient excuse to deny the public access to the history of outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept officers who are no more than criminals themselves.

He's protecting his outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards.  Worse, the standards imposed by sheriff's offices statewide with the exception of metropolitan counties are well below those of DPS and city police departments.  Why?  So the corruption, abuse, ineptness, and outright stealing can continue unabated?  This has to change.  ... Can't have that, can we?  Sheriff?  TL?

The public should understand Llano County authorities have it all sewn up.  Did you know the Texas Attorney General does not have the authority to investigate and prosecute County authorities on his own?  The District Attorney has to call for an investigation by the Texas Rangers.  Then, the State can prosecute if it so chooses.

Consequently?  Guess what?  Nothing will happen.  Nothing ever does.  The goddamned corruption continues unabated until you, the public, pressure authorities.  Precisely, why we all enjoy the 'best' government money can buy. Literally.  Without question, the corrupt, abusive, inept sons of bitches are all bought and paid for.  Firmly clamped to the taxpayer tit.  Dependent on money looted from innocent citizens caught in their web.  Phony fines and court costs cleverly designed to f--k the innocent and enrich the pieces of shit who falsely believe they run and own Llano County. Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

Interestingly, the former Sheriff and District Attorney were reportedly forced to retire after an outrageous scandal involving a drunk driving police officer from out of town.  Including special treatment of the drunken son of a bitch that no other citizen caught doing the same would have been afforded.  An honest, honorable Llano County Deputy suffered the consequences. Forget?  Great officers do not last in this hell hole County. ... Right, Sheriff?  TL?  "Sonny Boy?"  Madam County Attorney?

With all ongoing abuse in this goddamned County, one thing remains for damned sure.  We're just getting started, Sheriff.  You will continue to be exposed for whom and what you and your corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards have become, truly are, not what you phonies purport to be, that is, how you continue to f--k over a public you've falsely sworn to protect and defend.  -- Exposure, the only way short of an unwanted dreaded revolution to force desperately needed change in a goddamned fascist police-state. The Fourth Reich.

Have your jackbooted thugs been tested for steroids, Sheriff?  If you've nothing to hide, Bill, release the results of all drug testing.  'Personnel matters?'  Bullshit.  Looted taxpayers have the right to know.  They're footing the bill for all this goddamned corruption, abuse, ineptness. When will you and the boys end the shakedowns?  Looting of the innocent to line County coffers?  No honor at all?

Where are your swastika armbands, you fascist son of a bitch?  You and your thugs remain out of uniform.  Once again, Sheriff, and ad nauseum, did you and/or your goons pressure Schilling to exit the race?  Did you steal the election? If so, an aggressively stupid, achingly gutless public gets what it truly deserves.  One of the most corrupt, abusive, inept 'law' 'enforcement' agencies in our formerly great country.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

'Shoot first, ask questions later'.  Apparently, now, the mantra of law enforcement.  NPR reports:

"The family of Emantic "E.J." Bradford Jr., who died Thanksgiving night after he was shot by a police officer working security at an Alabama mall, is calling on the Hoover Police Department to release the mall video, witness videos and body camera footage of Bradford's death."

In the increasingly vicious climate perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue, would certainly be in the best interest of law enforcement to immediately release all videos of such deadly encounters.  ... Unless, of course, they've deliberately murdered their victims.

"Initially, officials said Bradford was engaged in a fight with an 18-year-old at the Riverchase Galleria Mall in Hoover, Ala. when he pulled out a gun and shot the teen. A 12-year-old bystander also was wounded that night. That night, police and city officials hailed the quick response as "heroic." But officials later retracted the statement saying it was "highly unlikely" that Bradford fired the shots that injured two people."

The jackbooted bastards are already making excuses:

"In a statement early Monday, city and police officials said they can "say with certainty Mr. Bradford brandished a gun during the seconds following the gunshots, which instantly heightened the sense of threat to approaching police officers responding to the chaotic scene." Body camera and other available video was turned over to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department as part of the investigation, and the evidence is now with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency. "We extend sympathy to the family of Emantic J. Bradford of Hueytown, who was shot and killed during Hoover Police efforts to secure the scene in the seconds following the original altercation and shooting. The loss of human life is a tragedy under any circumstances," the statement continued."

Sufficient?  Think so?

"Bradford's family spoke at a press conference Sunday, accompanied by their attorney, Ben Crump. Crump says several witnesses have come forward since shooting to say the police officer who killed Bradford didn't give any verbal commands to Bradford before shooting him in the face."

If true, no problems with that?

"Officials also say the shooter could still be at large. Crump says they offered Bradford no medical assistance after the shooting. Family members were tearful at the press conference at Birmingham's Kelly Ingram Park. Several clutched photos of Bradford. At one point, Bradford's grandmother, Althea Pipkin, collapsed and was escorted off as she sobbed over her grandson's killing. Attorney Crump and the family say it's just another instance of a black man dying at the hands of police. Crump has represented other black men who have died at the hands of police and others, including Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown."

The murder of innocent unarmed blacks remains an enormous problem in our formerly great country.  Must not be forgotten it's a problem as well in the white community.  Statistically, more innocent unarmed whites are killed by police than blacks.  This ongoing savagery must finally end, right, Sheriff?

"The officer who shot Bradford has since been placed on administrative leave."

Paid 'vacation' while the victim remains permanently, unjustifiably dead.

"His name has not been released."

Why not?  Why are his fellow jackbooted bastards protecting his identity?  The public is entitled to quickly know the identity of its oppressors.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Neither the State Bureau of Investigations, which is handling the investigation, nor Hoover police officials have responded to requests for further comment."

What the f--k could they say?  "Sorry" just doesn't make it.

"Crump says the family's communication with the police department has been minimal. He says as of Sunday, the family still had not been contacted by Hoover police about Bradford's death. Instead, he says the Bradford family found out about his death through social media."

Forget?  The jackbooted way.

"On Saturday, protesters walked through the mall chanting "Say his name — E.J." and carrying signs that read "Justice for E.J." and "Hoover PD Lied."

So what else is new?  Never ends.

Especially galling?  Aryan arrogant?  Get this:

"E.J. Bradford Sr., who is a retired Birmingham jail employee[police officer],  says he considers others in the law enforcement community as family. But he is angered by Hoover's quick conclusion to label his son the killer. Bradford Sr. says he called Hoover police at 12:30 a.m. Friday morning, but they said they would call him back. He says they did not call him before they gave a media briefing and that he has yet to receive a call."

How about that?  Jackbooted nazi way.  Forget?

"My son is gone. I can't get him back ... you vilified my son," Bradford Sr. said Sunday. April Pipkins, Bradford's mother, says Thanksgiving will never be the same again. Other family members joined Pipkins at the press conference. One of them was Clemon Brown, who is Bradford's younger brother. Brown says he blames the media for going with early police accounts. "E.J. was not that kind of guy at all," Brown says. "He was very respectful to his mother [and] his father." The family says Bradford had been taking care of his father, who is battling cancer. Crump says the family is unsure as to whether they can have an open casket funeral because the police officer shot Bradford in the face. Law enforcement has not yet released any details on the fatal shooting. Crump says in the meantime, they are going to explore every possible legal avenue available on the state and federal level. "What the family wants most is justice," Crump says."

Think that's possible?  In Nazi America?  Quickly transitioning from the de facto fascist police-state we've lived in since 9/11 to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.

CBS News reports:

"The family of Emantic Fitzgerald Bradford Jr., a black man killed by police in an Alabama mall on Thanksgiving, says he was wrongfully shot. They want the release of all video from that night. Police killed Bradford Jr. after two people were wounded in a shooting at the Riverchase Galleria Mall. Investigators first said he was responsible, but later said he was likely not the shooter. Hoover police now say at least one gunman is still at large. Police said Bradford Jr. was holding a gun and that's why they mistook him as a threat, reports CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann. But Bradford Jr.'s family said their son was killed because he was black. "Emantic would be the one trying to get people out of harm's way. That's the type of person he was," Bradford Jr.'s mother, April Pipkins, said. Bradford Jr.'s family says police owe them answers and an apology after their son was mistakenly identified as a gunman. "You shoot first and ask questions later? It's backwards," Pipkins said. "My peace of mind and my quality of life has been taken from me," father Emantic Bradford Sr. said. Bradford Sr. is a police officer himself. He said Hoover police made several mistakes that night. "My son always respected the police and if you would have given a command when you came around that corner, say freeze, drop your weapon, he would have complied with your order," Bradford Sr. said."

ABC News reports:

"Police in Alabama offered sympathy Monday to the family of a black man fatally shot by an officer responding to gunfire at a shopping mall, but said the man's decision to pull out a weapon "heightened the sense of threat" to police in an already chaotic scene."

Goddamned excuse.

"Bradford's father said his 21-year-old son had a permit to carry the handgun. The family's lawyer said witnesses told them Bradford was trying to help by waving people to safety, and was shot "within milliseconds" by an officer who didn't say a word to him."

Shoot first, ask questions later.

"It doesn't matter if you're a good guy with a gun, if you're black the police shoot and kill you and ask questions later," attorney Ben Crump said Monday on CNN, one of several national media appearances with Bradford's parents. Police and the city of Hoover issued a more detailed statement Monday on the status of the investigation, the possible eventual release of body camera footage and the officer's decision to shoot. "We can say with certainty Mr. Bradford brandished a gun during the seconds following the gunshots, which instantly heightened the sense of threat to approaching police officers responding to the chaotic scene," the statement says."

Goddamned excuse.

"We extend sympathy to the family of Emantic J. Bradford of Hueytown, who was shot and killed during Hoover Police efforts to secure the scene in the seconds following the original altercation and shooting. The loss of human life is a tragedy under any circumstances," it says."

Means shit squat.  Rings hollow.

"Bradford's parents said Monday that police still haven't spoken with them. They want to see body-camera video, and Crump is exploring the family's options. "We don't trust the police department because they've already lied to them. They released his picture all over the world saying he was the shooter and the police officer was a hero," Crump said."

Think so?  The 'best' law enforcement has to offer?

"The Monday police statement says "body camera video and other available video was immediately turned over to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department as part of the investigation. Now, all evidence has been handed over to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) to lead the investigation. Release of any video will be done as ALEA deems appropriate during the investigation."

Means shit squat.  More of the same.  No credibility.  They're protecting the jackbooted bastard responsible for killing this young man.

"The city and police said they would offer weekly updates. Organizers of a weekend protest inside the mall said they would keep up the pressure."

Sue the living shit out of the officer, department, and city.  Lobby legislators to drastically change laws vis a vis officer conduct, tactics, to say nothing of desperately needed change in sovereign immunity statutes.  Time for drastic change.  Before too late.  Hear the rumble?  An unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming.

Equally important?  Time to create a new federal agency whose sole responsibility would be to investigate corrupt, abusive, criminal officers, prosecutors, and judges.  Charge, indict, and try them in a special court whose sole function would be to adjudicate such cases.  Total independence.

"Bradford's father, a former longtime employee of the Birmingham Police Department, and other family members expressed frustration and anger that the young man was initially presumed to be the gunman in the mall melee. "I knew my son didn't do that. People rushed to judgment. They shouldn't have done that," Emantic Bradford, Sr. The police also expressed sympathy for the family of the 18-year-old man and the 12-year-old girl who were wounded in the initial shooting and said they are "pursuing the initial shooter who still remains at large."

CBS News reports:

"Social media video shows that witnesses believed police had killed the wrong person when they shot a black man at an Alabama shopping mall on Thanksgiving. Three gunshot victims can be seen in the video, including Emantic Fitzgerald Bradford Jr., also known as EJ. "They just killed that man in cold blood. They just seen that man had a gun on him. They shot that man down for no reason," Noland Moore could be heard saying in a video uploaded to Facebook. Bradford was armed. The 21-year-old had a legal concealed weapons permit, reports CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann. Protesters gathered Tuesday night at the mayor's home to demand answers. Hoover police have offered shifting explanations for why they mistook Bradford for an active shooter at Riverchase Galleria Mall. At first police in Hoover insisted he had wounded two people earlier at the mall. They quickly backpedaled: Bradford was not the gunman. The real gunman remains at large.

"Witnesses have told the family Bradford was trying to help people to safety when he was shot. Bradford's family is demanding the release of videotapes from the shooting – including what's inside the shooting officer's body camera. CBS News has been pushing for more answers in this shooting. State investigators won't comment while the case is active. Hoover police, despite a pledge of transparency, never got back to us. In their latest statement, they insisted Bradford was holding his gun when they first responded at the mall."

The Washington Post reports:

"Alabama police have backtracked further from their claims about Emantic Bradford Jr., who was initially described as an active shooter after an officer killed him in a suburban Birmingham shopping mall on Thanksgiving evening. In a regretful statement the next day, police said the actual gunman had apparently escaped the Riverchase Galleria — but still maintained that Bradford, 21, “was fleeing the shooting scene while brandishing a handgun” when an officer shot him in a corridor outside the JCPenney store. In a third statement Monday, police raised doubts about whether Bradford even had his gun out when officers encountered him. “We can say with certainty Mr. Bradford brandished a gun during the seconds following the gunshots,” the statement reads, “which instantly heightened the sense of threat to approaching officers responding to the chaotic scene.”

These jackbooted bastards are clearly tap dancing.  Doing the 'ole soft shoe.'  Covering their ass as the situation clearly deteriorates.  As their 'explanation' is exposed for precisely what it is.  A lie.

"The Hoover Police Department’s shifting explanations are likely to increase suspicions that the 21-year-old former Army recruit was considered a threat because he is black. “While these black young men are walking around in the mall, whether they’re carrying an arm or not, give them a chance to say what they’re doing with it,” as Bradford’s great aunt put it during a weekend protest at the mall.

"If Bradford did draw his weapon in the aftermath of the shooting, as police say, he was one of several people to do so, according to AL.com. It’s unclear whether the weapons came out as part of a group dispute, as police have suggested, or in self-defense. Bradford’s relatives have said he had a concealed-handgun license and may have been trying to help people. The Hoover Police Department did not immediately respond when asked whether Bradford aimed his weapon or simply took it out, or whether the gun was still in view when two uniformed officers working as security guards approached him, and one of them opened fire."

Get this:

"He died on the tile between a GameStop and a Footaction, blood pooled around his head. In time, more officers gathered around the body, and several onlookers took pictures. "That boy didn’t shoot at nobody,” a man in the corridor said as he filmed. “The shooter is down at this time,” an emergency dispatcher announced on the radio."

Police need to be held criminally accountable.  When will that happen?

"After police backed away from their claim that Bradford shot anyone, his parents hired civil rights attorney Ben Crump, who has previously represented the families of black shooting victims such as Stephon Clark and Trayvon Martin. The attorney demanded police footage of the shooting be released at a news conference on Sunday. He said Bradford was shot in the face, then interrupted his speech as a woman behind him collapsed in grief. Bradford is one of more than 850 people shot and killed by police in the United States this year, according to a Washington Post database, and the latest of many black men whose deaths have led to accusations of systemic racism under U.S. law."

When is this shit finally going to end?  Wake up, Sheriff.  Again, where is dashcam video of the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise, 52, of Austin by DPS and the Llano County Sheriff's Office?  One hundred thirty six weeks, now.  A goddamned disgrace.  Why are you still sitting on this information?  What are you hiding, Sheriff?  What is the identity of the officers who killed Wise?  Too gutless to release this information to the public that pays your salary and that of your goons?  Reportedly, there were three officers involved in the shooting.

When will the goddamned 'law' 'enforcement' community finally stop making excuses for engaging in outrageous criminal activity including blatant murder, violent assault, sexual assault, theft, drug trafficking, etc.?  List can go on and on.  Protecting its own no matter what it does or doesn't do?  Convenient, isn't it, Sheriff?  No foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element presents a greater threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties than all branches and levels of government, -- including law enforcement.

Corruption within law enforcement remains an existential threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.  So what else is new?  ... Right, Bill?  Same old duplicitous, aggressively stupid shit occurs right here in Nazi Llano County.  ... Doesn't it, Sheriff?

Think it'll change any time soon?  Don't hold your breath, readers.  Not how things work in Nazi America, right, Sheriff?  Highly reminiscent of how your goons operate though, isn't it, Bill?  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'  F--ked up is f--ked up no matter where, no matter how.  Problem throughout all law enforcement.

Including right here in Nazi Llano County, right, Sheriff?  Too many officers clearly have their heads securely lodged where the sun seldom shines.  Egregious insanity continues to be perpetrated by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue.  Ongoing issue.  All over our formerly great country.

Not just in Dallas as in the Guyger case, but all over the nation.  No end to it.  Surprised?  Why?  In today's increasingly national socialist climate anything goes, right, Bill?  Live in a de facto fascist police-state, quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  Certainly, a problem here in Nazi Llano County, isn't it, Sheriff?  Your goons, however, aren't held accountable when they egregiously f--k up.  Ever.

Precisely why you refuse to release information on your deputies to the long-suffering public?  That is, employment history, criminal background, results of drug testing, etc..  ... Got to protect your criminal jackbooted thugs preying on the citizenry with virtual impunity, right, sir?

Equally pointedly, why hasn't Llano County Deputy Leroy Rodriguez, Badge #764 been held criminally accountable for egregious abuse of power involving denial of property rights to a Kingsland property owner?  To say nothing of consequent resultant physical damage done to a motor home on that property.  Why are you protecting this clueless son of a bitch, Sheriff?  Why hasn't he been prosecuted for official oppression?  Where is financial compensation for the damage this jackbooted piece of human excrement is responsible for?

Ferociously pointedly, why is the District Attorney and the County Attorney continuing to protect this jackbooted piece of shit?  He and others like him present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

You're not doing your jobs, Sheriff.  You've got a loose vicious dog problem in Kingsland, Bill.  When will you and the troops finally do something about this ongoing issue?  Certainly, a recurring problem on Skyline, particularly on occasion at the intersection of Odessa.  Pedestrians, runners, and cyclists are at risk.

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.


11-30-18

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

More of the same old duplicitous shit.  CBS News reports:

"A Facebook executive whose brother died after being Tasered by deputies in California last month said she has seen footage of the incident that contradicts the police narrative of the fatal encounter."

So what else is new?  Police lie to protect their own.

"Chinedu Valentine Okobi, 36, was unarmed when he died Oct. 3 after being repeatedly Tasered by San Mateo County Sheriff's deputies in Millbrae. Officials said he suffered cardiac arrest. Ebele Okobi, Chinedu's sister and Facebook's director of public policy for Africa, said in a post on the social media platform she and her mother watched her brother being "tortured to death" in the videos, which have not been publicly released, as he yelled, "Somebody please help me!" and "What did I do?"

If there is nothing to hide, release the videos.  Do it now.  Why sit on them?  Let the public see for itself.

"In the Facebook post, Ebele Okobi described the videos as "shocking." "There is no mercy or compassion for my little brother," Ebele Okobi, who lives in London, wrote. "If they had killed a dog the way they killed my brother, there would be outrage." San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe confirmed to CBS News his office showed the family dashcam, cellphone and surveillance video of the police encounter Friday. Wagstaffe said his office is still investigating whether the officers committed a crime by using excessive force and said a charging decision was still pending. He said he expects to release the videos within the next several weeks, and wouldn't comment on the video's content."

Here's the problem:

"In the Facebook post, Ebele Okobi said the videos contradict a statement from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office saying a deputy first approached her brother because he was "running in and out of traffic," and  her brother "immediately assaulted an officer."  Rather, she said, the videos show her brother — a father and graduate of Morehouse College — walking along a sidewalk carrying bags when a deputy pulled up alongside him in his patrol vehicle, and said he needs to question him."

Somebody's lying.  Release the videos to the public.

"She said her brother gave an inaudible answer in the video, then walked to the intersection, checked for traffic and crossed the street. She said the deputy then called in a "Code 3," meaning to send back-up for an emergency. The deputy sped up to cut off her brother as another police car sped up in front of him. One deputy came out of her car and rushed into Chinedu Okobi, as he twisted to the side and moved his hands up. Ebele Okobi said deputies grabbed her brother and ripped off his jacket. As he tried to run, another deputy hit him with a Taser and he fell to the street, crying. Ebele Okobi said her brother was still holding his hands in air. "He is not fighting, just crying in pain. I will never forget the visual of his hands, waving above his head, open, begging," Ebele Okobi wrote in the Facebook post. Ebele Okobi said the deputies continue to Taser her brother and one struck him with a baton. Her brother at some point tried to run across the street, Ebele Okobi said, and the deputies chased him, Tasered him, pepper sprayed him and jumped on top of him."

Release the videos.  Let the public be the judge.  See for itself.  Clearly, someone's lying.

"She described audio of one of the deputies saying, "Stay on top of him, stay on top of him." Someone asked if her brother was still breathing, and someone else shouted, "I see blood!" She said her brother died on the sidewalk, and said no one attempted CPR or other life-saving procedures. She disputed the police version of events: "My brother never attacked any of the deputies. He did not assault anyone. My baby brother, as big as he was, didn't even defend himself." Wagstaffe, who is investigating the death, told CBS News last month deputies initially approached Okobi because they were worried about his safety. He said Okobi resisted officers, and when they couldn't gain control of him using their hands, two deputies deployed their Tasers. Okobi was Tasered between three and four times, Wagstaffe said."

Only way this will be resolved one way or the other is to release the videos.  Let the public see for itself.  Why are these jackbooted bastards protecting their own?

"In the Facebook post, Ebele Okobi called on Wagstaffe and the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office to "correct the record" in regard to an earlier statement her brother had assaulted deputies and was running in and out of traffic. She said that statement led her to believe her brother, who dealt with mental illness, could have been suffering from a mental-health crisis. Now, she said she believes the sheriff's initial account to be a lie. "I knew that my brother didn't 'attack' or 'assault' deputies, but because of his mental illness, I believed it was possible that he might have been in crisis and acting erratically," Ebele Okobi said in the Facebook post. "None of that would have justified him being killed, but there isn't even a reason, at all, that my brother was stopped. My brother's medical history has nothing at all to do with why he was stopped and killed."

Get this:

"Wagstaffe said his office never said Chinedu Okobi assaulted officers, and said that information was released through the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office. The sheriff's office did not return a call and an email from CBS News requesting comment."

Why not?  Why not take advantage of a golden opportunity to set the record straight?  Especially, at a time law enforcement is under such scrutiny, clearly cannot be trusted.  Lies like hell.  Does as it pleases.  With impunity.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"The office identified the four deputies and one sergeant involved to the San Francisco Chronicle as John DeMartini, Alyssa Lorenzatti, Joshua Wang, Bryan Watt and David Weidner. A spokeswoman told the paper all had been placed on administrative leave but have since returned to the job. Ebele Okobi also called on Wagstaffe to publicly release the videos.  "If people saw what my family saw, they would see what a miscarriage of justice it was," Okobi told the San Francisco Chronicle. "They would see why we're so appalled that police officers could do this."

The gutless bastards are cowardly stalling:

"Wagstaffe said he would likely release the videos by mid-December, ahead of the completion of the investigation. He said he's awaiting interviews with several witnesses, and the completion of an autopsy report that will determine Chinedu Okobi's cause of death before he releases them. He said he wanted to make sure the family viewed the videos before the public.  "I care about this family and what they're going through," Wagstaffe said. No matter what his charging decision is, he said, "my heart goes out to them."

Disingenuous, lying son of a bitch.  Dragging your feet to protect the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue?  Precisely, why we desperately need a new federal agency whose sole function would be to investigate, arrest, charge, and try criminal officers, prosecutors, and judges in a special court reserved only for these cases.  Total independence.

Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk?  Get what you truly deserve.

Highly reminiscent of our outrageously bought and paid for judiciary, Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following.  It's appalling.  Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for.  No longer.

No justice in a fascist police-state, -- quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.  NBC News reports:

"An Arizona jury on Wednesday acquitted a U.S. Border Patrol agent of manslaughter in the shooting of a Mexican teen through a border fence, another loss for federal prosecutors after the second trial in the 2012 killing. Jurors in Tucson found Lonnie Swartz not guilty of involuntary manslaughter. It comes months after he was acquitted of second-degree murder by another jury that had deadlocked on manslaughter charges, allowing prosecutors to pursue the case again."

The public is achingly stupid.  Exponentially losing ground during the Trump regime.  Forget?  'Stupid is as stupid does.'

"Border Patrol agents are rarely criminally charged for using force. But the killing of 16-year-old Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez sparked outrage on both sides of the border and came at a time when the agency was increasingly scrutinized for its use of force. Prosecutors said Swartz was frustrated over repeated encounters with people on the Mexico side of the border fence who throw rocks at agents to distract them from smugglers. They say he lost his cool and fatally shot Elena Rodriguez. Swartz fired some 16 rounds, and the boy was hit at least 10 times in the back and head."

Goddamned gutless jackbooted murderer the jury was too clueless to convict.

"Swartz has said he was following his training and defending himself and other law enforcement officers from rocks, which he said could be deadly. Prosecutors acknowledge that Elena Rodriguez was throwing rocks at agents while two smugglers made their way back to Mexico, but they said that wasn't justification for taking his life. Swartz's attorney, Sean Chapman, said Elena Rodriguez endangered the lives of the agents and a police officer who was on scene."

All the bastard and his henchmen had to do was move further away from the fence.  Instead, this gutless piece of shit chose to murder.

"In addition to the criminal charges, Swartz is facing a civil rights lawsuit from the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of the teen's mother."

Police chief gets a slap on the wrist for framing innocent black men.  CBS News reports:

"The former police chief of a small Florida city will serve three years in prison for a conspiracy in his department to frame black men for crimes they did not commit. A federal judge in Miami imposed the sentence Tuesday on ex-Biscayne Park chief Raimundo Atesiano, who had faced a maximum 10-year sentence. Three other former officers have also pleaded guilty in the case, which centered around efforts by Atesiano to improve his department's crime-solving rate."

Jackbooted son of a bitch in blue.  Presented and executed an exigent threat to all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.

"Atesiano's lawyer says the victims were not randomly selected but were known to police as having criminal pasts. The judge allowed Atesiano to remain free for two weeks before surrendering so he can care for his mother, who is dying of leukemia, according to The Miami Herald."

What special consideration or treatment did this goddamned criminal son of a bitch offer the black men he framed?

"When I took the job, I was not prepared," Atesiano told the judge, the newspaper reported. "I made some very, very bad decisions."

Jesus Christ.  Give me a break.  Goddamned crock of shit.  ... Right, Sheriff?

"Prosecutors say the crimes for which black people were falsely arrested included burglaries and vehicle break-ins. Two ex-officers were sentenced to a year each in prison, while the third got just over two years behind bars."

Why doesn't the law prescribe execution for jackbooted pieces of shit in blue who commit such crimes?

Asset forfeiture is no more than legalized theft by our out of control nazi government and its jackbooted bastards in blue.  Think not?  Wake up.  Remove your head from your ass.  ABC News reports:

"To some civil rights advocates, it’s a “law enforcement Weapon of Mass Destruction.”

Indeed.  Since 9/11 we live in a de facto fascist police-state, -- quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.

"Civil asset forfeiture – the ability of authorities to seize private property used in a crime – has become a lucrative revenue source for states and a tool to exact punishment, in many cases without in so much as a court hearing."

Jackbooted nazi justice, right, Sheriff?

"For decades, critics have panned the practice as “policing for profit” and an example of unchecked government overreach."

No question.  Legalized theft.  Hear the rumble?  An unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming as our formerly great country continues to nazify under the Trump nazi.

"On Wednesday the Supreme Court will hear arguments over whether the Eighth Amendment’s protection against “excessive fines” applies to civil asset forfeiture and whether states are obligated to abide by that Constitutional guarantee."

What took so long?  This goddamned shit has been going on for decades.

"The case was brought by 37-year-old Tyson Timbs of Marion, Ind., whose Land Rover SUV was seized by local authorities in 2013 after his arrest for selling $260 of heroin. "Timbs pleaded guilty to dealing drugs and was sentenced to one year of home detention and five years of probation. He was also assessed $1203 in fines and fees. The government kept his $42,000 Land Rover."

Thieving motherf--kers.  ... Right, Sheriff?  Legalized theft.

"Timbs’ lawyers argued that seizure of the vehicle was unconstitutional, amounting to an excessive fine. The maximum criminal fine for Timbs’ drug offense under Indiana law is $10,000. “While the negative impact on our society of trafficking in illegal drugs is substantial, a forfeiture of approximately four times the maximum monetary fine is disproportional to Timbs’ illegal conduct,” the state trial court concluded, siding with Timbs. Timbs’ lawyers contend the freedom from excessive fines – to include forfeiture of valuable personal property – is fundamental for all Americans."

Legalized theft.  Perpetrated by the nazi bastards in our out of control government.

“For ordinary citizens, the real-world consequences can be devastating,” they argue in their brief to the Supreme Court. “The Excessive Fines Clause secures a single, unitary right: freedom from excessive economic sanctions that are at least partly punitive,” Timbs’ team claims. “To be sure, that right can be violated in countless ways, using countless tools; in this regard, governments are endlessly innovative, ‘with more and more civil laws bearing more and more extravagant punishments.’” A state appeals court agreed that constitutional limits apply. But the Indiana Supreme Court reversed the decision, saying that Indiana could keep Timbs’ Land Rover because states are not required to abide by the Excessive Fines Clause of the Eighth Amendment. The panel explained that the U.S. Supreme Court had not yet weighed in on the matter. Now the nine justices have their chance."

Indeed, they do.  Be interesting to see how the five Republican nazis entrenched on this Court rule.

"The impact of the Supreme Court’s decision could be significant. In the 26 states and District of Columbia that report forfeiture activity, law enforcement agencies collected more than $254 million in funds and property in 2012 alone, according to an analysis by the Institute for Justice, a non-profit libertarian public interest law firm. “This is an incredibly important case,” said Christopher Riano, lecturer in constitutional law and government at Columbia University. “Historically, whenever the court takes these types of cases, the court does usually move to incorporate the federal guarantees against the states.” If the court does rule that the constitutional protection against excessive fines applies to the states – and that Timbs was unfairly sanctioned – it would likely trigger action in states nationwide to move toward limits on civil asset forfeiture."

The Founders?  Spinning in their graves.
