Are we afraid of the brass? Really no reason to be as long as we are off duty. We truly believe Chief O'Brien would stand behind us. We have a sneaky suspicion that if the commissioners put pressure on him, it would leak out and be all over this blog.
Like Mr. Jackson Jr. says, we have got to do better. It's one thing to vent our frustrations on the blog, but we must be wanting to take a stand.
The sacrifice is minimal. Stay over after morning watch, get up and come in early if you are evening watch, then hit the range afterwards. Come on your off day, bring your children, use it as a teaching tool about government.
We have suggested before to the F.O.P., and we'll suggest it again. Sponsor attending the meetings. Have a van or a bus at headquarters so everyone can ride together, serve breakfast in the parking lot. Do something, don't give up.
We have to get more involved!
"Gonna sue the county are you? Where were you when the Derwin Brown Family went broke in their fight with the county?
At the Board of Carpetbaggers meeting on July 5th* I saw Chief O'Brien and perhaps no more than four other officers. They all may have been security detail for BOC.
After I delivered my three minutes of medium heat and the meeting was over, several citizens asked “where the employees of DeKalb, where?”
Well you tell me! They sure as Hell was not at the meeting ! You gotta do better than that!"
Sincerely, Jerry Myer Jackson Jr.
