    The Ferguson Police Department in Missouri has released its police report recounting an alleged strong-arm robbery by Michael Brown on August 9. If you’ve been following the news, you know that shortly after the robbery, Brown was stopped for jaywalking. He and a companion – also allegedly involved in the robbery – ran from the police officer, who pursued them and fatally shot Brown. While there are clearly many questions remaining to be answered as the violence and rioting in Ferguson continues, this situation shows us that basic police report writing skills can become…

  • Turmoil in Ferguson

    Welcome to Ferguson, a town of slightly more than 21,000 residents in St. Louis County, Missouri. Before August 9, 2014, the 6.2 square miles were relatively obscure on a national stage.  Not anymore. They now have their own Wikipedia entry because of a violent encounter between Darren Wilson, a white police officer, and Michael Brown, an African American young man. I point out their ethnicity, because the reaction and subsequent news stories would not exist without it. Because of pre-ordained perceptions, there is not a pursuit of justice; it’s more of a collision with it. The resulting…

  • Combined Response to Active Shooters

    The active shooter is one of the most complex threats faced by American law enforcement. These individuals have no other goal than to kill as many people as possible before going out in a blaze of glory, either facing the police or committing suicide as law enforcement arrives.There are three elements to any active shooter/active threat incident: the attacker, the target, and the response.It's a given that the best way to defend against active threats is to stop the attack before it ever happens. Since the 1999 Columbine massacre, police, educators, and even parents have been told to watch…

  • Officials fear more protests if no charges against Ferguson officer

    23 Aug 2014 | 7:31 am
    By Sara Burnett and Jim Salter Associated Press FERGUSON, Mo. — Conditions calmed this week in Ferguson after nights of sometimes violent unrest stemming from the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer. But a delicate and crucial question lingers: What happens if the grand jury now considering the case doesn't return a charge against the officer? The fear among some local residents and officials trying to maintain peace in Ferguson is that failure to charge the officer could stoke new anger among a community profoundly mistrustful of the legal system.

There were bribes and kickbacks aplenty and thousands of illegal doses of sought-after drugs like oxycodone and hydrocodone.

But, when all was said and done, a prolific criminal enterprise was completely dismantled.
