Indiana, The Woozy State

Someone should thank the Indiana Supreme Court for their absolute candor when they explained their decision to suspend the 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution in a recent decision-Barnes v. Indiana

It will not be me, of course, since I am of the opinion people so deeply marinated in the philosophy of the Bolshevik Left they are unaware of any other responsibility should be taken out and shot at dawn before a randomly assembled firing squad of passersby.

Rarely have our Overlords and Masters so clearly defined their philosophy to We, The Peasants, in such clear and plain English:

Justice Steven David writing for the court said if a police officer wants to enter a home for any reason or no reason at all, a homeowner cannot do anything to block the officer’s entry.

“In sum, we hold that [in] Indiana the right to reasonably resist an unlawful police entry into a home is no longer recognized under Indiana law.”

They were equally plain and clear as to the reason why:

Feral Cop Friday

Don't Tread On Me????

It matters not how many outrageous stories of isolated “bad apples” (See Only Ones File)in the nation’s law enforcement community grace the pages of this little blog there is always some more egregiously outrageous story in the pipeline.

Today come two three reports from nearly opposite poles of the nation.

Example the First:

Newark Police. New Jersey never seems to fail the nation with Bad Cop News.

But now the entire DEPARTMENT of a major city is under Federal investigation!

Yes, the number of wrongful death settlements has reached such a peak Eric Holder’s Justice Department has decided to inquire into the circumstances.

It must be assumed this investigation is a serious inquiry and not a protective coverup for “Brothers of the Badge” a la Waco or Ruby Ridge.

Tantalizing Excerpt:
Hundreds of similar allegations and stories over the past several years have prompted the Justice Department to launch a federal investigation of the Newark Police Department, digging into claims that the force has treated Newark’s citizens discriminatorily, brutally and illegally.

Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez announced the investigation on Monday in a joint press conference with Newark Mayor Cory Booker and U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman.

“The investigation will examine allegations of excessive force, unconstitutional stops, searches and seizures, discriminatory policing on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity, whether detainees confined to holding cells are subjected to unreasonable risk of harm, and whether officers retaliate against citizens who legally attempt to observe or record police activity,” said Perez in a statement on Monday.

Indiana. An Indiana Supreme Court ruling has overturned the Magna Carta!

Tom Selleck No Hero

Hey TOM! LOOK AT THE $%@! POSTER!!!!

Red Flag warning! Blue Bloods Gun Safety Amateur Hour!

David Codrea highlights an incident on the set of Tom Selleck’s television show “Blue Bloods” wherein Mr Selleck chastises a bit player for “waving a real gun around with his finger on the trigger”.

In news reports NRA Director Tom Selleck is cast heroically for his response to the extra’s faux pas.

Unfortunately, I cannot join the huzzah chorus in this instance.

Aside from the well established notion it is bad juju to publicly humiliate “the little people” the larger point should not be ignored as well: if you have joined a ship of fools about to wreck in the shoals it may make you feeeeel better to yell at the cabin boy but it sure will not keep the ship from capsizing!

As one message board commentator observed– it was the worst kind of Hollywood celebrity prima donna temper tantrum–all sound and fury with no productive outcome.

Yes, hardly a poster boy for on-screen displays of gun safety, hero Selleck has pretty big feet of clay. At the end of the day he is just one more Hollyweird drama queen who does not know squat about which he rants.

Exhibit A:

(Magnum PI –finger on the trigger TWICE in EVERY opening credit!)

TomSelleckFingerA

Finger on the trigger when he slaps in the magazine! Good thing the slide was not locked back!

TomSelleckFingerB

Finger on the trigger when he runs through the jungle!

Exhibit B:

(So Tom, is your finger on the trigger because your front sight is on the target?)

If the situation on his show has gotten to the point an extra in costume is “waving a gun around” many, many highly paid staffers failed in their appointed duties before the extra even auditioned for the role.

While Mr. Selleck was correct to react with alacrity, his fury more properly is, and ought to be, directed toward both the prop master and producer of his show.

This is a clear-cut case of Pot. Kettle. Black.

Trigger Happy Deaf Cop

A Tale suitable for the ONLY ONE File (Click Link)

“During a traffic stop late one night I screwed my .40cal into the ear of a young man….”

To paraphrase Forrest Gump: Message Boards are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get”

They are definitely excellent entertainment-portions of which should grace this blog more frequently.

Today’s submission comes from a Yahoo Group called “Snubby” for snubnosed revolvers.

Police Violate Open Carry Law

Again I admire the spunk of open carry advocates.

But I do wish they would be better prepared for their (inevitable) encounters.

These Peace Officers decided to conduct a “felony stop” which gives them wide latitude in the use of force whether they are right or wrong.

This kid could have gotten killed.

Bombshell:Trooper Inside Luby’s Cafeteria?

NC Gun Guy has alerted us to his newest video: Neal Knox Explains Luby’s Massacre

As of now here at JohnJacobH we can neither confirm nor refute Mr. Knox’s allegation.

He clearly states the Fort Worth Star-Telegram briefly reported the presence of an armed Texas Highway Patrolman inside Luby’s Cafeteria at the time George Jo Hennard began his systematic murder of 23 people.

The officer, also described as a Texas Public Safety Sergeant did not draw his weapon because “he was not under direct fire”.

In the Youtube description the comment is found linked at the 1:45 section of the 7 minute video.

While it has been reported up to 80 people were in the facility at the time the incident commenced, only the dead and wounded have been widely documented.

It is entirely possible the undocumented others who were neither injured nor killed could have had a Highway Patrolman among their number, but for now, this anecdote clearly belongs in the Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot File.
