No True Bill

In what is probably the most dissected police shooting in history, a Grand Jury did not bow to the obvious machinations of the Holder Justice Department, the traveling grievance-mongers and the naked threats of violence and delivered a just finding after months-long hearings, hundreds of witnesses and three autopsy reports:
  • A grand jury in St. Louis County on Monday declined to indict the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in August in a case that touched off nationwide protests and cries of police brutality.

    St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch announced the decision not to indict Darren Wilson Monday evening. A grand jury of nine whites and three blacks had been meeting weekly since Aug. 20 to consider evidence in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, 18. The panel met for 70 hours and heard from 60 witnesses.

    McCulloch stressed that the grand jurors were "the only people who heard every witness ... and every piece of evidence." He said many witness presented conflicting statements that ultimately were inconsistent with the physical evidence.

    "These grand jurors poured their hearts and soul into this process," he said.
An amusing side note - Obama gave a statement saying, "We are a nation built on laws." The irony of this statement in light of his constant disregard of the law, his "executive orders" usurping Constitutional roles and his administrations constant felonious behavior is completely lost upon the media sheeple.

The Federal Grand Jury is still meeting, stand by for Holder to get the indictment he and Obama are demanding.

It is really sad that when a grand jury has to look at ALL of the evidence and facts surrounding a shooting involving a law enforcement officer, the race subject always comes out of the woodwork. We live in a society where there is no such thing as equality and that there has always something to piss off the natives to give them a reason to riot and cause mayhem.

What is really stupid about this idea of rioting, burning down buildings, looting, and other kind of mayhem, is that they are doing it to themselves. But being so stupid, they simply don't get it.

Next, what was accomplished by all of this mayhem? People got hurt, arrested, caused major damages, and the end result is absolutely NOTHING WAS ACCOMPLISHED.

So what does the future hold? More riots, more mayhem, more stealing, more burning and more of the same non accomplishments.

If your are white cop, your health and life insurance better be paid up, and your should be wearing two vests instead of one with a bullet stopping helmet. It has gotten to this extent because of what this country has turned into. Perps have all of the rights in the world, but the white cops better haul ass soon.

Thank you Mr. President for putting your two cents in and speaking words which are probably are a lie because your lips were moving.

Barry would fit in very nicely at dekalb. He has no regard for constitutional law, has no ethics, morals, and goes against everything that is right and just...He is the president of the perps...He would be a perfect fit as a commissioner or a certain someone at 34 who already acts like God...

Kudos all around to the citizens of the Grand Jury who were able to do their civic duty despite the fears of repercussions by groups of people seeking vengeance, not justice. These folks, from the DA, to the honest witnesses who testified truthfully, to the last citizen on the Grand Jury, are all to commended!
It is truly reassuring to see that justice can prevail in today's society, despite threats of violence and intimidation.
Officer Wilson's woes are not yet over however, as I fear civil litigation will surely come as well as continued persecution (and prosecution) by Eric Holder and the DOJ. He too, is not interested in justice, but rather looks to further his political agenda of persecuting police officers who dedicate their lives to their profession, and work diligently to ensure the safety of all of the citizens they serve and protect.
The law enforcement profession has never been easy. It is a thankless profession performed by men and women with a strong sense of duty to society. People don't like police officers, unless of course someone is stealing their stuff or assaulting them. Then, they expect unreasonable results. The fact of the matter is this... police work is a dangerous and an ugly job. Sometimes, people are killed by an officer who must take a life to protect his own.
In those instances, people must set aside their terrible sense of loss and look at the incident with an honest view, without threatening to wreak havoc if they do not get their way. Justice is blind and must remain so, unaffected by the threats of those who seek anything but the truth.
It may be a sad thing that a man so young lost his life. It would have been a greater tragedy, had the officer lost his life and the young man walked away. My sympathy lies with the police officers of Ferguson, the state of MO. and every department across this country in which men and women put their lives on the line every day and stand to face a similarly tragic event. I applaud the police chief who supported his officer, the DA who handled this case so well, the Grand Jury members who saw truth in their efforts, and the justice system that saw to it that justice was truly served.
May God protect each and every officer, not only in DeKalb, but throughout this ouuntry. Be safe my friends!

Hey guys, I don't live in Dekalb but I work there. FYI - for every knucklehead that you hear on TV hating on the cops or what you all do, there are about 999 other Americans who respect and value your service and dedication to a community that you may or may not even live in. I know you all don't hear it nearly enough, if ever, but you are all doing good work and are truly the best that our country has to offer. Thank you again and God bless.

All that grand jury did was to hold back a modern day lynch mob stirred up by a self serving media and crooked politicians (even the president himself) and self serving "community organizers". I get so sick of these fools. We all look like a bunch of idiots in the eyes of the world now.
I am glad the grand jury could see through all the BULLSHIT and find the truth.
Im glad I am RETIRED from law enforcement and dont have to deal with these turds any more. Id rather be an old bad ass dinosaur cop with teeth than a powerless, spineless, wimp cop like they want you young guys to be today. Theres not enough money on this earth for me to ever work under your current chief of police or serve anywhere as a cop under this "president".

Michael Brown's parents say he was a good boy and would not have laid a hand on Officer Wilson. Did they miss what led up to this trajedy? I know as a parent you may not want to face realit bt this street punk focked up and paid the consequences.

Here’s the lessons from Ferguson America- Don’t let your kids grow up to be thugs who think they can steal, assault & attack cops as a way of life & badge of black (dis)honor. Don’t preach your racist bullsh*t “no justice no peace” as blabbered by Obama’s racist Czar Al Not So Sharpton & their black klansmen. When a cop tells you to get out of the middle of the street, obey him & don’t attack him as brainwashed by the gangsta assholes you hang with & look up to. It’s that simple unless you have no brains, no soul, no sense of decency whatsoever. And dont claim that “black lives matter” when you ignore the millions you abort & slaughter each & every day by other blacks. Those of us with a soul do indeed believe black lives matter, as all lives matter. So quit killin each other you f*ckin idiots. Drive safely.

I read an article written by a Black Sergeant with Ferguson PD a couple days ago. He wrote it outlining the unique position he's been placed in working these Ferguson Riots as a black man on the other side, and I found myself nodding along agreeing with everything he wrote, because I go through the same crap he goes through, and has gone through for years. Being a cop, we're always going to be called everything but our government names. But when people of your own race, people I grew up with, call me "traitor" or "Uncle Tom" or otherwise, it does get to me. I grew up here in DeKalb County, unincorporated Stone Mountain. which is EXTREMELY similar to Ferguson, MO. I grew up with a single mother, low income household, shotty school system. But somehow, I'm not in prison, and I'm not dead, like alot of the people I grew up with in the same conditions. For one, my mother never once asked for a handout, even when we got foreclosed on and our car repossessed. We always managed to land on our feet because she knew the value of hard-work, in lieu of just sitting on your ass waiting on the government to come through for you. And yet, even though I grew up just like Michael Brown in very similar circumstances, here I am, a contributing member of society and he, just another dead black kid. Funny how that turns out.

What really gets me, is the unrealistic glorifying of Michael Brown. The "gentle giant" the man that "never hurt nobody". Yet, people fail to realise, that if that situation had ended differently with him not dying, today, he'd be in prison. Noone seems to remember the fact that he was a criminal. Who wants to bet what his juvenille record looks like? And the apple doesn't fall far from the tree because now his mother is facing robbery and assault charges TO THIS DAY for confronting MB's grandmother about selling Michael Brown T-Shirts, cutting into her line of profits. Which brings me to the parents. NEITHER the mother or the father was raising Michael Brown when he died. They put his ass out because they couldn't deal with him and he was living with his grandmother. But all of a sudden when he died, Wilson broke up a loving and tight family? Bullshit.

I continue to go to work, even though it sickens me some days. I've lost some friends the second they found out I was a police officer, so be it. I'll never apologize for doing what I love, because I love doing it. And as long as people commit crimes, I'll be there to answer the call and take them away. I don't care if they're black, white, asian, hispanic, indian, I could care less. Everyone assumes that most cops are racist, yet everyone would think it's wrong for cops to assume most citizens are criminals. It's hypocrisy at it's greatest. America. I just laugh, to keep from breaking down and crying. I worry about if I'm doing a good enough job teaching my kids right from wrong. Sure, they see me as Batman, no real superpowers, but I go out every night getting the bad guys. But what happens when they grow up? Start using social media? where the facts don't matter and everyone is an expert that knows how it SHOULD have gone down? It keeps me up at nights.

Stay Safe, Stick Together, Stay DKPD.

Lets ALL be thankful for what GOD has given us. Let me list a Few:

Our lives (we have made it so far...that aint luck, thats GODS grace and mercy).

The honor and pleasure of serving others as a DeKalb County Police Officer. (the good far outweighs the bad, most of the time anyway).

For the camaraderie that comes with being one of those officers.

Our family's.... that we love and we are loved in return.

That we live here. Regardless of what your particular circumstances are, the good old USA is the best place on earth to be.

For the gift of just one more day on this earth. A lot of our brothers and sisters and our family members didn't get to see this day but I am PROUD to have known and loved them.

For the good food that we are fixing to eat. (save me the neck Clark)

Look at the big picture yall. We really have got it good!

As a former white DKPD officer who worked in purely in poverty stricken areas where I was the only white cop around for miles, I salute the officers that still work there. Black, Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian Carry the torch, work hard, and don't buy into the racial bullshit. Do your job, enforce the law, and if your call ends up requiring a J1, or you have to knock out some J2 so be it. It has never been about race, it's always been about locking up criminals and doing our part to improve the county and to ensure that the citizens are safe.

Don't buy into the bullshit...this is 2014, not 1968. No need or reason to have so much hatred and animosity towards white officers, in particular Officer Wilson. He did what any one of us would have done. If it's between me and them, I'm going home to my family at the end of my shift.

Be safe brothers and sisters...it's more dangerous to be policing now than ever. God bless.

It's always sad when a life has to be taken. But when it comes down to the bad guys or the good guys, I will always pray the good guys win. One of the last things I would tell my officers at the end of each roll call was " the most important thing you can do today is to make sure you go home at the end of your watch". I also always tried to put a smile on my officers faces at each roll call. If negative things had to be brought up, they were brought up first, gotten out of the way, then I made sure that each face had a big smile before they left the room to go out in the streets and face God knows what. There was not one single officer that worked for me that I didn't cherish and love. I would have given my life for any one of them. There was no such thing as color, or ethnicity, or gender with my officers. We were all police, we were family and I did my best to treat them all fairly and with respect and honor that they so deserved. When things like the Ferguson incident happens, it affects law enforcement everywhere. I was a fresh new rookie out on my own when the Rodney King incident happened. We couldn't even send out messages to fellow officers in our kdt's about meeting to each lunch together. All messages had to be strictly business related or the brass would write you up in a heartbeat. The saddest part is that this sort of thing could cause an officer to second guess their decisions, which in most cases happens in less than a tenth of a second. That second guess could get an officer killed. Had Michael Brown killed Offcer Wilson, would there have been the same out pouring of grief and protesting? I think you know the answer to that. We as police officers go out everyday, 24/7, 365 to do a thankless job that we so dearly love. And when I say job, to us it's not a job, it's who we are. We are police 24/7, 365, even when we are retired. Dekalb County may not be the shining star it once was back on the day, but the officers that wear the badge and patrol the streets each and everyday are still as honorable and professional as those that served before them. And those that serve now, do so with as much love, if not more because of the political mess that corrupt politicians has brought to Dekalb County. On this Thanksgiving Day I am very greatful that for 25 years I wore the uniform, put on the badge and served with the greatest officers on the face of the planet. I was and I still am proud to be known as a Dekalb County Police Officer. To my fellow officers that still wear that badge and put on that uniform everyday, continue to serve with honor and dignity. There are no sleazy, dishonorable politicians that can ever take away the honor of being a police officer. I pray for each of you every single day. Don't ever second guess your decisions, always come out on top. So, on this Thanksgiving Day, as in every other day of the year, when you leave that precinct and begin your tour of duty, make sure you do the most important thing you can do today and everyday, return to the precinct at 1042 and go home to serve another day, God bless you all, I love each and everyone of you...

Jesus Christ never had a single problem with the Police. Why should you?

I'm sure this Michael guy was just a problem starter.

and i'm sure that none of us at this blog will ever change our mind about michael.

and i'm sure that all of us here at the dekalb blog feel that way.

Michael - if you were alive i'd be saying this: it's not because we hate you. But simply put - we are readers of the law. and most of us good christians here don't have problems with the police.

and of course, the black police officers of DKPD went home after arresting whites fighting for *cough* their own rights and woke up great the next day as well. savoring over the taste of their televised shame that was even greater than skin deep. turkey was great.

welp - time to go help stimulate the economy with some of my tax money.

I think i'm going to move to Cobb county and marry a blonde hair White woman. Police cars there look better too.

having ears that are waxed closed is never a good thing.

Thank you for bad mouthing the president and your department!

And i'm sure Michael would of found your opinions very flattering.

and i'm sure the black officers turkey tasted great after abusing the whites fighting for their rights. personally it aint my problem, but being the opposite color it was still shameful to see on TV. its one of those things thats just so shameful it makes me blush.

the world sure has changed these past 40 years.

btw stop flying the flag in poor weather TUCKER - if i see that flag flying out in the bitter wet hurricane looking weather, i might have to stop by and inform you that despite being a pretty much minority force, you still need to be somewhat respectful to the blood that was shed for this country!

maintain your discipline!
