Police suicide is the number 1 killer of law enforcement officers in the US. SGT Mark DiBona knows the situation all too well, with 2 close calls of his own.

If you didn't make it out to Rudy's tonight, Officer Nick Ghidina was able to bring in a speaker from BLUE H.E.L.P., retired Sgt. Mark DiBona, to speak on his personal experiences. Lots of good information and testimony to the hardships of the job and how to turn things around. Thank you to Mark and to Nick for giving officers a place to reach out for help. If you have any questions regarding what was covered tonight or any of the literature that was available, feel free to send a message. The support is there if you need it - keep an eye on each other, have each other's backs!

Survive the Streets: A Page for Cops

And the hits just keep on coming. Only all they are doing is proving the lies that are being put out. Your protests are a scam, an excuse to brutalize officers. This man was not scared of police. This man was terrorizing his family and then actively tried to kill a police officer. Open your eyes and your minds because everyone else can see the truth. To all of our officers, be safe, stay alert and watch your six.

On September 13, 2020, at approximately 4:13pm, Lancaster (PA) Police responded to a domestic dispute in progress. The caller advised that her brother was becoming aggressive with their mother and was attempting to break into the house. The first officer arrived on scene at 4:24 pm and approached the front of the residence where he made contact with a female family member. Seconds after his arrival, a male subject exited the front door of the residence armed with a knife and began chasing the officer with the knife. The officer retreated and drew his weapon. The subject continued to run towards the officer with the knife raised over his head in a threatening manner. The officer fired several shots fatally wounding the subject. The entire encounter lasted approximately 20 seconds.

Immediately following the shooting, large crowds gathered to protest (although no information on the shooting had been released). Rioters threw glass bottles, gallon jugs filled with liquid and pieces of plastic roads barricades at officers. They also threw bricks through windows of the police station and post office. Along with damaging police vehicles and looting several businesses.

NAACP chapter president Talbert Swan: 'No such thing as blue lives'

To all of our officers, I hope you understand this message loud and clear. The NAACP Chapter President believes it was the two LA Deputies choice to be shot and left for dead, unprovoked. Such an insensitive response put out just hours after they were brutally attacked and were fighting for their lives by a suspect that is obviously not at all a victim of police brutality but in fact a criminal who "chose" to commit attempted murder. Crime is a choice. It doesn't matter what color you are. You're showing a very ugly side sir, and may you not forget how many of our Law Enforcement brothers and sisters are minorities. So you seem to be choosing black criminals over black heroes. Wrong choice 100%.

An NAACP chapter president said there is "no such thing as Blue Lives" on Twitter on Sunday following what appeared to be an ambush-style shooting of two sheriff's deputies in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Let's be very clear as to who is being brutalized. This officer was shot in the face. She still thought of her partners well being and assisted him. They were doing nothing to provoke this attack except that they wear the badge. This is the direct result of the anti-police rhetoric and false narrative that is being pushed daily. And the protestors cheered for their deaths. For those that fear the police, you sure do bring the fight to the police on a regular basis.

Look at this photo.
Remember the people who cheered this.
Remember the ones who blocked the hospital entrance.
Remember the corporations that support this.
Remember the athletes that kneel.
Remember them all.

But most important of all, remember to never give up.

BIG TMPA NEWS!

Today, TMPA released two billboards (pictured below), along Interstate 35, entering Austin, intended to raise public awareness that Austin is a defunded city. This reckless act, a political stunt by the city council pandering to the radical left, will do nothing but endanger the people of Austin.

As the largest police association in Texas, it is our duty and responsibility to stand up for the brave men and woman of the APD, as well as the other law enforcement agencies with jurisdiction within the city limits which will have less of APDs resources to depend on, and to raise public awareness of the dangers of defunding not just Austin, but any city across the U.S.

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT! We are very pleased that our friends at Relentless Defender Apparel, a police veteran owned and run company, have joined us in this important campaign. You may show your support by purchasing your very own “Keep Austin Police Funded” t-shirt, part of the proceeds of which will be donated to TMPA Charities. Order yours today!

Meal Train for The Branch Family

By now, most of you have heard that one of our officers, Detective Alan Branch, was involved in an accident today while bicycling with several church members. Alan is alive and we are so very thankful! But he was seriously injured and has already endured surgery, with other surgeries in his future. We would like to share information to assist with any immediate needs for Alan and his family. Attached is a link for a Meal Train to provide meals for the Branch family. Also, any donations that you would like to make, please contact Detective Trish Walker in the CACU. Obviously, we hope Alan's recovery time is speedy but no doubt, he will be out for quite awhile. Please consider any donation of catastrophic leave time to help him through this. Let's take care of our own - he has already been through so much and we'd like to do what we can to provide support to Alan and his loved ones.

Louisville Police Officers commanded (under threat of immediate suspension) to remove protective equipment.

A message from State FOP President Berl Perdue:

After the tragic loss of life and the injuries from the shooting in Jefferson Square Park, Louisville Metro Police Officers were directed to prevent more encampments and other unlawful behavior that would lead to additional dangerous conditions. Officials made public statements that no overnight camping would be allowed in Jefferson Square Park and laws would be enforced to prohibit further violence and conflict in Louisville.

A detail of Louisville Police Officers were on standby yesterday to take necessary enforcement action and restore order if needed. While this detail was ready to act if necessary, individuals armed with long rifles and scopes were removed from nearby parking garages. Nearly four years ago, July 2016, 12 officers were shot and 5 were killed in Dallas, Texas. One man, with ill-intentions, gunned down innocent people; just like what happened last night in Louisville. In Dallas, the armed gunman used different points of elevation to fire on Dallas Police Officers. These officers were protecting the 1st Amendment rights of citizens protesting, just as officers in Louisville have done over the last 4 weeks.

Last night, officers were commanded (under threat of immediate suspension) to remove protective equipment, up to and including ballistic-rated helmets and approach an unruly crowd with a “soft-approach.” This order came after individuals with long guns were encountered in elevated positions. We know that, on multiple occasions over the last 4 weeks, projectiles were thrown at officers and incendiary devices were used during the riots in Louisville. Officers were also reportedly shot at on numerous occasions. De-escalation is always the desired outcome; however, in law enforcement we recognize that every encounter may not end that way. Protective equipment has been designed and utilized over the years by law enforcement across the country, safeguarding the men and women we send into harm’s way. Asking our officers to remove their protective equipment for the sake of public image is absolutely shameful and unsafe!

The men and women of the Louisville Metro Police Department have yet again been failed by faulty leadership. I commend the brave brothers and sisters who stood up to this foolish order and I have their back. As a Sheriff, I will always be on the front lines with my deputies. I would never ask them to do something I would not be willing to do myself. Nor would I ask them to walk into a potentially violent situation without protective equipment they have at their disposal. Protecting the public and my deputies is my duty. It seems some LMPD Commanders have abandoned this concept.
