Useful Tip for Police

This is the kind of stuff we're looking for while we're compiling the list of "Things Police Shouldn't Stop Minorities For." This is actually helpful:
  • An administrator at the University of Wisconsin-Madison suggested at a recent roundtable conversation that, in order to combat “overpolicing” in the community, police should no longer respond to shoplifting claims at large stores such as Wal-Mart, and shouldn’t agree to prosecute people caught stealing.

    “I just don’t think that they should be prosecuting cases … for people who steal from Wal-Mart. I just don’t think that, right?” said UW-Madison director of community relations Everett Mitchell. “I don’t think [with] Target or all them other places, them big box stores that have insurance, they should be using justification, the fact that people steal from there as justification to start engaging in aggressive police practices, right?”

    Everett’s remarks were made Tuesday as part of a UW-Madison panel on the topic of “Best Policing Practices.” Everett argued that community police shouldn’t prioritize enforcing the law, but instead should focus on achieving “safety” as it is defined by a local community, even if that definition includes allowing some stores to be robbed with impunity.
So our idea of having an actual list wasn't as far-fetched as some people thought. This guy is actually laying it out for everyone to see...and he's teaching kids who have play-doh for brains and zero life experience to think this is the way to combat "overpolicing." We can barely wait to see the rest of his ideas.

So called "civil rights" and out and out rudeness to cops are never over-policed.

So, he wants safety to be achieved in the community except for the stores in the community(where people shop) when there's people stealing in these stores. And when brawls break out between store security and the shoplifters what do you do if you don't want the police getting involved?

This is exactly the kind of job I want. I'm made for it. I want to get paid to think up bullshit like this.

Thanks Everett. I'll take my pink slip now for failure to take police action after letting go an offender I had in custody who I knew to have committed a crime because you said that I shouldn't agree to prosecute. Wake up Everett! The cops don't have a choice. You know as much about policing as I do about astrophysics.

At least in Chicago, it's pointless to arrest someone for shoplifting at Target. They never come to court, so the case is always dropped. Makes me wonder why they even bother calling the cops - just takes up time and resources better s pent elsewhere.

Texas deputy killed 'execution-style' while fueling patrol car

3:13 AM ET, Sat August 29, 2015

"(CNN)A man shot a uniformed sheriff's deputy "execution-style" while he fueled his patrol car in the Houston area, killing him instantly, authorities said.

"Deputy Darren H. Goforth, 47, was returning to his car after pumping gas Friday night.

"The gunman walked up from behind him and opened fire for no apparent reason, Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said.

"When Goforth fell to the ground, the gunman stood over him and shot him some more, authorities said. He died at the scene.

"He was literally gunned down in what appears to be an unprovoked, execution-style killing," Hickman said. "I have been in law enforcement for 45 years, I have never seen anything this cold-blooded."

Actually I would like to see this happen. Because the next logical step (on the side of the business) would to either A) Raise prices to over come the loss from theft. Or B) Close up shop and move to more business friendly states.

Since these businesses are usually located in the areas of cities with a high minority population, the obvious response to both solutions is that the business is racist.

I actually had a defense attorney tell me that blacks and whites commit crimes in the same proportions and numbers. The difference is the " over policing" of black neighborhoods which criminalize young black males. So, it becomes the fault of the police, not the behavior and lack of impulse control of black males is the real problem. I guess that the apologizers ( is this a real word?) have to deflect the blame onto someone because they cannot stand to accept facts and look for a real solution.

insurance for theft? Small claims for business owners just dosent exist. For large claims such as broken windows or robbery yes. But a carton of cigarettes here and there? Plus how are you going to prove what was stolen and what walked away with an employee at the end of the night? This is just a slow slide into a society that docent want anyone held accountable for ANYTHING. Look at what forty years ago was something to be embarrassed about… unwed mother, son or daughter in jail, none of your kids graduating high school? Its all common now with no one batting an eye.

Shoplifting cases in our jurisdiction are initiated by the loss prevention folks filing civilian criminal complaints through their local magistrate. Thankfully, we were only summoned when loss prevention couldn't positively identify someone detained.

It figures, a 'Son Of Obama' came with with this nonsense that stealing is okay.

But seriously, this is Un-fucking-believable. Even for cheese-head land it's anew low in stupidity, that somehow this MORON, Everett Mitchell, became an administrator -- director of community relations -- at a major University (yeah, I know. I'm being generous calling UW-Madison a major university ;-)). I hate to think what could come next from this asshat -- crimes that police should ignore if *the community* says is 'minor'.

I know Auto Theft would be near the top of that 'ignore list'. After all, that's "A Rite Of Passage" for minority youths -- or so say the so-called parents. 'Parents' who enjoyed stealing a car or two in their youth for a little joy ride around da hood.

Another law I know they don't want the police anywhere near is Statutory RAPE. Otherwise they wouldn't keep getting 15y.o. girls pregnant. So 'the community' is cool with that. And slinging dope, you betcha, 'cause it's a 'non-violent', 'victim-less' crime, just like prostitution, and gambling. So scratch all of those.

And I wouldn't doubt that some asshole will even propose that all Assault With A Deadly Weapon cases be changed to a Misdemeanor. Bustin' a cap in Homies ass will only be pursued if the bro dies. That is, unless he was in an enemy gang. Then it'd be cool, the punk deserved it.

In conclusion, as a society we're in some seriously deep shit and these idiots must be stopped. F--king political correctness is gonna get us all killed.

There is no 'shoplifting insurance'. And even if they offered it, the price would be astronomical in any city that 'depoliced' shoplifting. Detroit, Newark, and other black-run cities HAVE 'depoliced' shoplifting (although not by any official policy), and the response is clear: stores shut down and the cities become 'food deserts', clothes deserts, gasoline deserts, snack deserts, milk deserts, and diaper deserts.

Why does the public think that areas in this city are " food deserts". restaurant deserts, just plain old store deserts? If you want the answer just open a business in some of these minority , gang infested areas and you will find out. Either build them as currency exchanges where everything is behind glass, or hire a bunch of guards and have lots of insurance to protect you from law suits or the "public" will steal you blind. Of course, this will probably happen anyway as many of these security guards and your employees will also help themselves. Not a great business climate.

Needless to say, I would never EVER hire a graduate of the University of Wisconsin - Madison to walk my dog, watch my store or balance my books. Or even edit my e-mails, given the lack of ability to speak English this individual shows. This person sounds more like a guest on the Jerry Springer Show than he does a member of academia.
