There is no doubt that the brave men and women of the Philadelphia Police Department are doing their job!

Unfortunately, rather than doing his job, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner prefers to blame the police/victims and treat the justice system like a revolving door for violent criminals. 499 murders in 2020, the highest since 1960.

Trooper Walker's Shooter Found Dead Of Suicide, Trooper's Wounds Not Survivable - The Police Tribune

🇺🇸😢 We regret to inform you that Trooper Chad Walker (TX) was responding to a disabled motorist when the driver suddenly ambushed him as he parked on the scene, fatally wounding him.

Many of the cities where elected officials are spewing anti-police rhetoric and calling to #DefundThePolice are the same ones with the highest increase of murder and violent crime. This radical experiment is dangerous and is jeopardizing the safety of our communities & our officers.

Patrick Yoes National FOP President joined Fox & Friends to discuss the factors that have created a “perfect storm,” leading skyrocketing murder and violent crime rates.

Justice

On Tuesday, March 23, at approximately 10:15 a.m., a group of heavily armed officers from the Boulder Police Department, Boulder County Sheriff's Office, Colorado State Patrol and the FBI responded to a local hospital and formally placed Monday’s shooting suspect into custody on 10 counts of murder in the first degree.

Upon placing the suspect into custody, officers informed him that the handcuffs used that day were those of Officer Eric Talley. The suspect was then transported to the Boulder County Jail and turned over to the Boulder County Sheriff’s Department.

It was our distinct honor to use Officer Talley’s handcuffs to formally process him into the jail. Though this was a small gesture, we hope it is the start of the healing process that so many of us need at this time.

Officer Talley’s handcuffs are pictured here.

Police responded to a vehicle striking other cars, suspect vehicle intentionally ram police disabling county vehicle, suspect driver fights police on scene and at the hospital injuring officers, and is given a citation due to COVD-19 concerns and released.

“Due to the current emergency bail situations schedule for COVID-19, she was released on a “Notice to Appear” citation soon after.

We’re doing our job, others need to do theirs.

DRIVER INTENTIONALY STRIKES POLICE VEHICLE

Yesterday morning around 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 24, 2021, officers responded to reports of a car crashing into other vehicles in the McDonald’s drive-thru, located in the 5000 block of Van Buren Boulevard. The suspect vehicle fled southbound on Van Buren Blvd. as two of our officers were arriving on scene and going northbound. The female driver intentionally crossed over into the officers’ lanes of traffic and drove straight at them. They were unable to avoid the suspect car and she collided head-on with their patrol vehicle, disabling both. The officers were able to take the female suspect driver into custody.

Brenda Mesa, 36-years-old of Riverside, was arrested and taken to a local hospital for medical clearance. While at the hospital, she became combative and assaulted an officer. Ms. Mesa was later booked into jail for multiple counts of assault with a deadly weapon and suspicion of driving under the influence of illegal substances. Due to the current emergency bail schedule for COVID-19, she was released on a “Notice to Appear” citation soon after.

Our two officers were transported to the hospital, treated for their injuries and released. They will remain off work the next few days while they recover. Fortunately, none of the drivers or passengers of the other cars that Ms. Mesa struck were injured. Our police vehicle sustained several thousand dollars’ worth of damage, and many officers were needed to address Ms. Mesa’s constant belligerent and combative demeanor while being medically treated.

We’re doing our job, others need to do theirs.

Once again we need to correct misinformation put out to spin the real facts.

Last night, while responding to a call to assist another agency, a patrol deputy was hit broadside by a fleeing stolen vehicle. The stolen vehicle was driven by a repeat offender with a felony warrant for fleeing police in a motor vehicle.

The suspect appears to have escaped the entire incident unscathed. The same cannot be said for the deputy who suffered a broken knee cap, broken toe, possible head injury, fractured ribs, and a bruised lung.

The systematic failures of the criminal justice system are not the failures of police who continue to arrest the criminals. The failures are a direct result of our elected officials refusal to hold criminals accountable for their actions.

Watch how Police are lured up a narrow hallway from a fake call for help, causing them to stack in to a “fatal funnel”, then the suspect appears wearing clothing that hide a weapon, and the Police are fired upon from an elevated position.

We’re attempting to provide aide, and are ambushed. Again.

Defend the Police.

With the exception of our brave service men and women, there is not a single profession in this country where you go to work and people are actively trying to kill you.

Georgia Law Enforcement

END QUALIFIED IMMUNITY?
The House and Senate are both voting on a bill to do just that.
Georgia LEO strongly supports the doctrine of qualified immunity and opposes this provision or any such provision that would limit, reduce, or eliminate this essential protection for police officers.

What is Qualified Immunity?
We hear this argument come up all the time, and it is usually answered with false information.

Qualified Immunity DOES NOT protect police officers who violate state law or policy during a violation of someone’s rights. That is the short and sweet FACTUAL answer that the media will not tell you. In fact, they will tell you the opposite by twisting the truth and giving you subjective opinions to play on the current societal emotions.

Here is the explanation of Qualified Immunity with its source:
In the Supreme Court case: Harlow v. Fitzgerald, the Court recognized “the need for an objective qualified immunity defense to protect law enforcement officers from the often-frivolous lawsuits that flow from their necessary official actions.”

This means, when an officer does their job, by the book legally and within policy, they cannot be sued for simply doing their job.

In Supreme Court case: Anderson v. Creighton, the Court observed that “qualified immunity” protects, ‘all but the plainly incompetent or those who knowingly violate the law.’

Again, this reaffirms that officers MUST act within law and policy to be immune from lawsuit under Qualified Immunity.

But how does the court determine what is “reasonable”?

In the Supreme Court case: Graham v. Connor, the Court states “The calculus of reasonableness must embody allowance for the fact that police officers are often forced to make split-second judgments-in circumstances that are tense, uncertain, and rapidly evolving-about the amount of force that is necessary in a particular situation.”

Qualified Immunity simply protects officers from frivolous or baseless lawsuits when they perform their jobs properly. If they fail to act within legal and procedural guidelines, then they are still subject to civil lawsuits.

Again, unlike elected officials, judges, and prosecutors; police officers DO NOT have absolute immunity, and they can be held liable when they knowingly violate a clearly established constitutional right.

Qualified immunity simply allows police officers to respond to incidents without pause, make split-second decisions, and rely on their training and the current state of the law in making those decisions. The loss of qualified immunity protection would have a profoundly chilling effect on police officers and would limit their ability and willingness to respond to both critical incidents and routine calls for service without hesitation. Abolishing qualified immunity would likely result in a higher cost of government due to financial risks, vicarious liability, and litigation costs. Furthermore, the elimination of qualified immunity will further hinder efforts to enhance the hiring and retention of police officers.

Here is your GOP republican support. A Republican Senator tried to get rid of police unions in Virginia today in a proposed amendment to a comprehensive police reform bill that was up for debate. Sen. Bill Stanley (R-Franklin County) proposed an amendment to exclude law enforcement from unionizing.
