THIS is a Police Chief

Background: San Francisco Police Officer Nick Birco was killed July 26, 2006 when his police car was struck by a stolen van occupied by suspects who had just comitted an armed robbery and were being pursued by SFPD units. This video was of a press conference given by a member of the SFPD brass. This demonstrates how administrators should act.

Encouraging that someone is out there standing up like that... However, it's discouraging that it took a 6 weeks for me to hear about it... I want to see the rest of the video...

Some of you might have read my Thread " Sportbikes vs Meth" In that I shared about my many year fight with Meth which I have Now been clean for almost 4 years. Because of my drug addiction I have also spent about 11 years of my life off and on in prison because with drug addiction generaly comes criminal activity. because of this I want to put my in on this.

Because of the mis-use of our legal system this country has made a complete mockery of what is supposed to protect the "Good American" people. You might of heard of this case of a guy who did a burgerly of a buesness and fell through the ceiling of what he was breaking into and broke his legs and sued and won a huge settlment WTF now we have are own sworn to protect police officers affraid of getting sued because of the mis-use of the system.

not only that but our system is screwed up because people get slapped on the wrist because of.... Guess???? yep $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ its all about the money or more correct the lact there of. where is all of the tax payers money going????? I will tell you where it is not going. Its not going to help put people behind bars for long periods of time. Its really not the murders that cause havoc in the world in comparison the the freaking drug addicts. I know this. people like I was destroy the comfortable living of the persons just living life, paying there taxes, raising there children. these people come to find out that there identity has been stolen there car ect ect. so what happens to these seemenly non violant crimanals that are of no account. well I will tell you they do 3-4 months sit in jail talk shop on the latest scams and go out to pilage again only this time now a little more well educated.

The truth is this, there is only a small percentage of the funds going to REHABILITATE these black sheeps of the world. the money is going into pockets some where. Prisons are a privetly owned buessness now. prison are now built by private corperations and then rented to the states to do one thing. WAREHOUSE. Now dont get me wrong there are many people who deserve to be locked up in the hole never to see daylight. but the truth is that percentage is small compared to the people who need treatment. but treatment costs, yes you guessed it, $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ for my last time in prison there was a funded program that i got into (this program was cut later do to money) out of the 60 guys i went into it with 25 are still doing well with years of recovery helping people like we used to be.

the guy from san fran was right... its not the cops fault, hell there doing the tuffest jobs. when they drop a guy off at the jail they are done, with the exception of court. It goes to the judge but that does not go far enough. It goes to the department of corrections, but yet that does not go far enough, you must track it back to the politictions pocket. where is the money??

that all being said there are some peice of (you know what) that will never change but on the other hand there are some waiting to change but need the help. I know, I was one of them. just my

but Its going to take allot more than just him to make a difference in this crazy world. Its going to take all of us voting every election to try to get rid of all the money hungry politicians. Judges, Mayors, Sheriffs are all plantations. We decide who has those jobs.

Yeah it's too bad the collective voice votes based on who's signs appear in the most yards, rather than wasting their precious time looking at a candidates record...

and strongly support the idea of passing a test before being allowed to vote. It would cut the number of qualified voters significantly but in the end. We would have much more educated votes and better politicians.

Better politicians? Is that an oxymoron? That's like having a better death...

I educate myself on politics, though not as much as I would like too... I have been hesitant to vote at times because I don't feel like I know enough to make such an important decision... What pisses me off more than anything is when people vote AGAINST somebody... "I hate Bush so I am voting for Kerry"... That's such a dangerous way of thinking I cannot even begin to describe it without starting a whole new thread... Not to mention voting for the little 'R' or 'D' next to the person's name...

I think the party system is plague to this nation... People get so caught up in which side they are on that they stop listening, stop learning, and stop thinking... I am a registered independant... I vote based off the issue, the candidate, and how either one relates to the way I think... I have voted Dem, Rep, and not voted at all because I did not have enough information to make an informed decision.

People believe voting is their right... I view it as a privilege... One that should not be abused.
