What the Media Doesn't Report

Remember Harry Reid bragging to the media "We killed the Patriot Act"?

Well, they cleaned it up and the Senate voted to end the democratic led filibuster on it this past Friday 96 to 3. Among the 96 "yea" votes were Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Ted Kennedy and Dick Durbin.

Amazing. A few cosmetic changes AND plummeting poll numbers and suddenly everything is hunky-dory for the democrats who screamed loud and long about the erosion of civil liberties, illegal detentions and unauthorized wire taps (without actually backing up any of these claims with hard data).

Democrats - the party of knee jerk reactionism.

SCC,

Sorry about using your blog, I am just starting, and I feel Like it is a good cause.


First of all, I am glad to see that people are finding fopquestions@blogspot.com

The only advertising I have done was one post on Second City Cop.

More will be done.

And my name is not Sean or Wayne.

If you do not believe me I can get an affadavit from my mother, she swears I was named either of those names.

What is following is the text of a petition.

If anyone wants to copy it and create an actual petition, they are welcome to do so.

If you get it filled out you can email it to FOPQUESTIONS@yahoo.com

If there is a way to get email at this blog, I have not discovered it yet.

If I get a significant number of signatures, I will fax them to the F.O.P., and ask them to deliver them to the Board members in question, I will also send them certified mail to each of the Officers of the Lodge, so that they can be addressed at the next meeting.

I'm sure if we get enough, I or someone else will bring the issue up.

And if the President rules us out of order, someone can ask the question again in a slightly different fashion, and see if they respond.

For the record, I do not know the two soon to be supervisors on the board, I just feel that when they accept their promotions, they should move on and leave the blue shirts alone.

"PETITION"

We the undersigned members of F.O.P. Lodge # 7, hereby request that any and all Board members resign from the Board of Directors of F.O.P. Lodge # 7 upon their promotion to the rank of Sergeant.

We thank them for their service, and wish them well as they embark on this new phase of their careers.

If asked by members of the P.B.P.A., we will heartily endorse them for leadership roles in that organization.







Thanks, lets see what happens!

We'll let this post stand for now, but in the future, please just post a link (or a notice) to your website rather than eating up a whole bunch of space in our comments section. Our readers find it annoying and they'll complain about it. Thanks

This war in Iraq will bankrupt this country. The country will go up in riots and flame as the link cards bounce. The welfare system will collapse, thus they will burn everything. The police will run away. The cowards they are. And oh no the liquor since they have fallen.

ATTENTION: Use that PDT to check on incoming jobs. First go to MENU then hit EQ now enter a time prior to actual and the district. SEE IT WORKS! Now to avoid a 3 offender shoplifter on your beat you can do a traffic stop or assist another officer. Let those DOC cars do some work.

Thats right. Those DOC cars don't do anything. You can see them at the Brickyard Mall hanging out. (the 1800 cars all do it!) They are NEVER in the doc. Or sometimes they will be at a polish coffee show googling the waitresses

The above poster is another bitter bitch, ratting out other coppers because they have something he wants, but can't get for one reason or another. Love the double post meant to make us believe it's different posters...loser.

Guys like THIS are the ones that drop a dime to IAD in a heartbeat, whining that they aren't getting thiers. THIS IS YOUR ENEMY! And he wears the same uniform as you and sits next to you in roll call. Sneakier than any hype, and twice as cowardly!

Keep dodging those jobs on your beat, you worthless cunt. It won't take long for you to give yourself away. And then the REAL fun will begin...

Here are a few things the Democrats and many dissenting Republican gained by extending the measure until now:

The proposal would restrict federal agents' access to library records, one of the Patriot Act's most contentious provisions. A form of secret subpoena known as a National Security Letter could no longer be used to obtain records from libraries that function "in their traditional capacity, including providing basic Internet access.

The proposal would no longer require National Security Letter recipients to tell the FBI the identity of their lawyers.

The compromise bill also addresses "Section 215 subpoenas," which are granted by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court. Recipients of such subpoenas originally were forbidden to tell anyone about the action. The proposed Senate measure would allow them to challenge the "gag order".

Sununu (Republican) said he and his allies were disappointed that the compromise does not require agents to "show a connection to a suspected terrorist or spy" before obtaining a Section 215 subpoena. Instead, a FISA judge would have to agree that there are reasonable grounds to believe the items being sought are relevant to an investigation into terrorism.

But Justice Department spokesman Brian Roehrkasse said the Senate compromise "maintains the tools necessary to fight terrorism while further strengthening safeguards to protect civil liberties."

Considering the Republicans control both houses and the Excutive branch they disssenters made the controlling party blink.
