The LEO thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Bad cops, no donuts:

(Salt Lake City) Officer suspended after ordering dog to attack Black man on his knees

LA police officer accused of groping corpse sued by dead woman's family

Two Savannah cops fired for use of excessive force during arrest

(Colorado Springs) Cop posted "Kill em all" on protest livestream, investigation finds (gets slap on wrist :roll: )
Florida sheriff orders deputies not to wear masks, bans civilians in masks from office

A Florida sheriff barred deputies from wearing facial coverings in most work settings, authorities said Wednesday, even as the state continues to struggle with record-breaking coronavirus numbers.

Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods insisted there's no conclusive evidence that wearing masks curbs the spread of the virus — despite explicit Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines saying just that.

"Now, I can already hear the whining and just so you know I did not make this decision easily and I have weighed it out for the past 2 weeks," according to a memo Woods wrote to staff, provided to NBC News by the sheriff's office.

"We can debate and argue all day of why and why not. The fact is, the amount of professionals that give the reason why we should, I can find the exact same amount of professionals that say why we shouldn’t."
No, he can't.
... The policy would be in full force inside any sheriff buildings and civilians coming into that office would be barred from wearing a mask.

If that civilian doesn't want to go mask-less, he or she will be asked to exit the building and leave a cell phone number so they could be called and invited back inside when a sheriff's employee is free to meet with them....

I made an attempt to tell this Marion County sheriff just what I think of him but the only email address I could find on the sheriff site was to the Marion County Sheriff Foundation which I assume is devoted to wingnuttery and dumbfuckery.

"Mask optional' is stupid but understandable. "No masks" is legit insane for a variety of reasons even including the OSHA requirement to maintain a safe workplace, etc. Not to mention criminal negligence if they get a bad outbreak.

Should be a lawsuit if anyone gets sick. Hopefully he loses his job.

Sheriff Billy Woods is a nationally infamous, lying, dangerously antisocial, tax dollar-wasting COVIDiot. Do something, public health and safety is counting on you.

Unopposed this year, both in the primary and general.

Idk what is takes to remove a sheriff, maybe only recall if available or felony conviction, if even that. They're probably stuck with him for years.

It's decades old, largely intentional and never seems to get better despite countless "reforms".

I've often used a department's 'Report a Crime' feature. This is the first IA link I've seen. I'll expect Sheriff Billy Woods to resign within a week now that you're on it.

Cool. It looks like this moron has given himself five stars....can't tell for sure. Anything more than four stars is guaranteed trouble.

WELLFORD, SC (FOX Carolina) - The Wellford Police Department said officers seized 250 pounds of "high grade narcotics" after a bust on I-85 Monday night.

Deputies said the suspects were hauling the drugs from New York to Atlanta.

The drugs are valued at $250,000.

Wellford police said Lyman police assisted in the bust.
Whew. Just think of all the reefer overdoses that were prevented by this bust. Can't have our children shooting up with that stuff and listening to that hippity hop music.

Thanks Wellford PD!

The federal government has always classified pot as a Schedule 1 drug......just like heroin.

I'm assuming it's weed. It looks like it, but its hard to tell. The thing that cued me in was the article saying the 250lbs is worth roughly 250k. If my calculations are correct, that's 1000 bucks a pound. 65 bucks an ounce? That doesn't sound like high grade weed to me.

Dunno about "high grade" contraband, but legal Seattle area medium quality stuff is about $150. If you're willing to go out to the wilds of Yakima medium is around $90. Statewide average for "high quality" is a about $230.

Still, no narcotics involved - high, medium or otherwise
