George Soros, Black Lives Matter, and manufactured civil unrest: Leaked docs prove the real goal is federalizing America's police
The document is aptly called, “Police Reform: How to Take Advantage of the Crisis of the Moment and Drive Long-Term Institutional Change in Police-Community Practice.”

  1. Is Johnston in the picture as the "before" model with the others actually leading their departments?

  2. 21st Century Policing should be the same as 18th century policing,get off of your backsides and go catch the bad guy's,seems like we have a hard time doing this in this town,you would think with 18 cops in this town the crime rate would be lower

    1. Actually, the crime rate here is pretty low, even lower than many towns in America that have a considerably higher standard of living. The main problem seems to be that criminals recieve lighter sentences here than they would in a lot of other places; the same people are committing the same crimes, over and over.

  3. I sure he finally felt "at home" surrounded by all the other out of touch,"public servant" malingerers. Who paid for this soiree?

  4. It was incredibly easy commit and get away with a crime in the 18th century due to lack of resources, technology, educated law enforcement and corruption. So unless you want rampant assault, theft, and vice crimes to return we should probably stay in the 21st century. It's a good thing he went - learn new tactics, find out what's working in other parts of the country, and meet allies working on the same problems. Good for you Springfield PD!

  5. What a surprise, the only way the losers feel a tinge of power, by leaving a hole remarks on a free blog website. Idiots. "Go catch the bad guys" yeah right, just point a finger and 'catch them' - SPD has an excellent arrest record, too bad you're too dumb to find that out on your own.

    1. Thank you! If people want so much change or think they can do better feel free to apply for a position as a police officer. Yeah, that's what I thought.

  6. Another dog and pony show for the King. It will soon be followed by another knee jerk reaction and ineffective red herring (Does our $5000 crime map, main street strolls, and lunch at the high school sound familiar?). Mean while drug dens flourish, resources go to waste, my property values fall as my taxes go up. Maybe next time he can work a patrol shift, knock on the doors of the drug dens and tell them they are not welcome...things real cops do.

    1. Too bad the "King" probably isn't even aware this blog exists, otherwise I'm sure he really would have cared what you think. Imagine that, someone who knows more being a cop than a cop, blah blah blah. You forgot to throw in the old "I pay his salary" bit *yawn*

  7. The police do what they can and the courts let the criminals go. If you want to blame someone blame the judges and law makers.

  10. This has "taxpayer funded boondoggle" written all over it. Nothing new in the manner of policing the town will come from this trip that couldn't have been gleaned from other, less expensive means. Just another example of self-important "public servants" traveling to the land of milk and honey for a little fun at their customers' expense and then trying to portray it as legitimate business.

    1. Since when is training and police leaders exchanging ideas not legitimate business. It's the law that each officer maintain training hours - where they go for it, is none of your business, even if you as the customer is unhappy. I'm sure cops are pretty used to unhappy customers, your whining is nothing new. You know absolutely nothing about the cost, or where the funds came from - you know nothing at all; completely out of the loop, and it drives you crazy. Your only muscle are regurgitated words that your intended target isn't even reading lol

    2. the town pays for training hours just like they do for other depts.,bet the town manager had to approve this trip

    3. The cost was probably free. Motels and transportation costs are always reduced rates. The cost for this was likely no more than what it costs anywhere else, including a conference in Burlington. You do realize this is the 21st Century and traveling isn't really that big of a deal anymore, right?

    4. Sorry as much as I agree this is legitimate business...nothing is free especially in DC!

    5. Nothing involving public officials is "free". The tax payer gets the bill in the end while these clowns waste time and money. When you have been in charge for years and your town has become littered with drug addicts, criminals and dole recipients cavorting at the White House will not fix the problem. Canning him might give the town a chance. Even Odumbo was smart enough to not pose with this group of useless tax payer funded in competents.

  11. No one bats an eye when the (hundreds of) teachers go to their annual "conferences" and we still have low marks in our school system!

    But as soon as a police officer goes to a conference all h%ll breaks loose!

  12. I think the chief maybe could put on a tie and look a little more professional.
