    The vast majority of peace officers around the country do not see color. They see good and bad. Most of their predispositions are not based upon race, but upon those willing to victimize others and destabilize peace and harmony. I do not want the police to engage in brutality any more than the next person. But I also understand from personal experience, that once the officer has legal authority to detain someone, he or she needs to demonstrate control. The absence of command presence will encourage a runner to run and a fighter to fight. Once someone is motivated to run from, or fight the…

    19 Apr 2015 | 3:05 am
    In March 2012, I wrote an article for Law Enforcement Today about the shameful problem of unprocessed rape kits. In July 2014 I wrote a follow-up article about a CBS News investigation that focused on the 20,000 rape kits are still waiting to be tested more than a year later. I was hoping that I wouldn’t need to write another article about it. Sadly, I’m back. My 2014 article reported that Detroit still had 5,600 untested kits in storage. Fast-forward to 2015: In Flint, Michigan officials recently found 250 untested kits, some of them dating back to 2003. And the problem lingers on…

    Coming soon (perhaps) to a town near you: a new hallucinatory drug called Flakka that’s already causing problems in Florida, Ohio, and Texas. Flakka is a hallucinatory, amphetamine-like substance that can endow users with superhuman strength. In February, a man under the influence of Flakka used a rock to break hurricane-proof glass at the Fort Lauderdale Police Department. The US Drug Enforcement Administration has seen a nearly 780% increase in the number of reported cases in the last three years. Back in 2010, not a single case of the drug had been reported in the US. In 2012 there were…

    Police are the “Good Guys” – we need to show that to the public even more nowadays. In the last several years there has been a palpable change in the image of police officers in the media. A change in opinion, that if left unattended, will fester into a dangerous rift between the public servant and the public. No officer should think that this rift can simply be left alone and will blow over. Every police officer in America needs to recognize their own personal responsibility to meet this challenge head-on, just like they have sworn an oath to meet the wolves of society…
