New SWAT Policy?

From a few days ago:

  • Donnell Gardner had a basketball game to watch. But the outreach worker with the Chicago CRED anti-violence program was busy Friday night helping Chicago police officers negotiate with a man holed up in a home in the Roseland neighborhood on the Far South Side.

    He kept texting the man, encouraging him to surrender and telling him he didn’t want him to die in a shootout. Finally, Gardner found a way to get through to the man. He texted: “I’m trying to watch the Lakers game, come on out.”

    And the man walked out with his hands in his air.

He probably came out because he couldn't believe anyone was actually watching the NBA any more. Did you see the ratings this season? Down 51% from last year. When Jordan was in the Finals, 33 MILLION people were watching. Now they can't break six million on a weekend night with nothing else on.

We had a few questions about using a multiple-convicted felon to negotiate with a barricaded subject, but the results seem to be positive. And certainly, in this environment, it's better than gassing and shooting a non-compliant subject, so there's that. Odd times call for odd solutions.

Screw the NBA, NASCAR, MLB, the NFL, and any other sport that caters to the leftists who aim to destroy this country. They all got woke, now they can go broke.

Aurora Colorado Swat has a new policy too. After negotiating four hours with Eric Burns, they packed up and left without him.

It's not just in Chicago. The whole "kinder, gentler SWAT" movement is spreading. No doubt it'll be as effective as the “No Vehicle Pursuit” policy. Why should the bad guys surrender if the cops will give up first?

Colorado SWAT Leaves Standoff to ‘Avoid Unnecessary Confrontation’

Agency officials said the community has made it “very clear” it wants a different police response when “there is a possibility of using serious force”

By Suzie Ziegler

AURORA, Colo. — A SWAT team engaged in an armed standoff last month decided to walk away, leaving the suspect behind, after four hours, according to CBS4. An agency spokesperson cited a desire to “avoid unnecessary confrontation.”

The encounter unfolded September 24 when officers surrounded the home of 39-year-old Eric Burns, who was being investigated for felony child abuse, officials told CBS4. Burns was wanted on a misdemeanor domestic violence warrant out of Denver. Police later learned he was also wanted for a felony kidnapping warrant.

The SWAT team was on the scene for hours, negotiating with Burns to surrender. Authorities said they believed Burns was armed. Burns eventually released his 6-year-old daughter but refused to give himself up. After about four hours, there was a “decision made to vacate,” according to a police report obtained by CBS4.

They already knew each other. No one from the city called this guy. He had already been "treating him" for anger management issues.

Should have done like they did in Denver. He's in the house alone; pack up the equipment and the team and return to the station. Let the "crisis workers" handle the problem.

no this is a great idea let’s have felons on patrol they can respond to the other felons let’s give them the massive amounts of weapons so if they kill the animal or if the animal kills them there’s no loss this is the change the mayor is looking into great idea Larry just do it don’t be scared. Way to gosh darn minute why aren’t these type of people in folks surrounding the mayors house for protection? We could save the taxpayers millions of dollars in protection money as a matter fact they could drive her ass and her wife’s ass and her family and friends that she uses the police for to drive them around ! Let’s expand on this idea the Crooker County states Attorney who also has a massive detail could also use them she’s letting them free anyway why does she need armed police officers this would work with all of them they all think they’re big dignitaries but they’re nothing but punks that deserve no protection the people have no protection but yet they are surrounded by armies of police 24 hours a day seven days a week some of them are driving an armored vehicles.

Hmm. He's a cousin to the involved parties. Maybe that had everything to do with his ability to text the guy and convince him after several hours to come out. Why didn't the peacemaker intervene when his cousin was being beaten all of the other times? Timing, funding and photo ops. Can't miss an opportunity

Good work and creativity, sometimes it works.
So fibbing is ok...but not if y’all the po-po.
El’ COPA will decide if SWATS had influenced any impropriety, just in case.

Better things require immediate attention.

Unfortunately some of ratings are from CPD personnel either without intestinal fortitude to give it up
or the lack of conscious/intelligence to realize they are supporting those who support the groups
that want to destroy our profession and our country !!

It’s disgusting to see officers sitting around watching/listening and still supporting these leagues
that encourage their players to idolize the fallen thugs and vilify ALL of US !!!

Wake up, grow a pair and take a STAND against this defamation of character !!!
Take some pride in your profession and rebuke the false narrative they perpetuate !!!

Perfect example of: go to the lowest common denominator......
Which evidently worked.......on the genius who was holed up inside!

Article on the drop of ratings/viewership for “professional sports”
on Yahoo today says it’s all “bullshit” that people aren’t watching due to
the “activism” of certain participants......
Which I call BULLSHIT.......

These guys (some gals) aren’t professional at all......
Not worthy of my time.....
Egotistical millionaires who do NOTHING for their “people”
except run their mouths......put slogans on their shirts....
Where are the Michael Jordans? Where are the Walter Paytons?
None of these current pros have any of their integrity, honesty, humility....

They are like Pelosi, eating her $13 pint of ice cream in front of her
24 THOUSAND DOLLAR FRIDGE in her MULTI-million dollar home,
surrounded by armed guards, who refuses to send lowly piddly amounts
of stimulus money to STARVING out of work Americans who need a hand??
Just saying......

Any professional sports organization that allows itself to be co-opted for political purposes by a bunch of overpaid punks with an agenda isn't worth my time. Management of those organization can take their pandering political correctness BS and shove it.

Sports are entertainment. Period. I have no interest in seeing kneelers, fist-raisers, whiners, flag disrespecters, or the names of so-called "social justice" organizations painted on floors, cars, helmets, caps or patches with the same sewn on jerseys. And spare me the barely literate mumblings of those athletes at sports pressers where they try to expound on their crap.

In case one of these athletes happens to read this blog, allow me to be concise and use small words to make my viewpoint easily understood: F. U.

70 miles south of Aurora, in solid red Colorado Springs, this never would have happened. Aurora is a ghetto with weak leadership. They built the billion-dollar over budget, years late VA there just so they could stock it with ghetto bred affirmative action hires, it is the only part of the state where enough low-grade buffoons can be found to man the desks to screw over Vets.

The only reason to watch an NBA game is to make a list of the sponsors so you can tell them why you won’t be using their products or services henceforth.

Was there an NBA this year? I bet the NBA games were big in China. I missed seeing all the "Chinese lives matter" shirts, though.

Off topic, but my favorite Biden line in the town hall tonight went something like "instead of shoot to kill, the police can just shoot them in the leg." I am surprised he didn't add, "More time at the range, and maybe, just shoot the gun out of the killer's hand. Matt Dillon could do it." So clueless it's laughable.

If it turned south and guy killed himself, people would have been critical of coppers using a person who most likely has no experience in negotiating with a suicidal man.
