    The Post-Standard-Syracuse NY ^ | January 13, 2010, 6:00AM | By Scott Rapp /
    Auburn, NY -- Three days before Christmas, Auburn Police Chief Gary Giannotta laid down the law for his command staff. At the closed meeting Dec. 22 in the department basement, Giannotta gave this ultimatum: Tell your patrol officers to write more vehicle and traffic tickets — at least one each per shift — or there will be repercussions for those who don’t.... Threatening to punish employees who fail to make a ticket quota violates state labor law. Tuesday, the Auburn police union took Giannotta to task for his proclamation, and two college criminal justice experts questioned the ethics of his...

    This story ran a while back on freerepublic (May 2007), but no one posted the YouTube video that shows news anchors losing composure after hearing the 911 audio of a cop who apparently confiscated pot during an arrest, took it home, baked it, consumed it with his girlfriend, and then freaked out. Consider it a Friday humor break. Have a good weekend all! YouTube video here: Original article here:

    President Bush, who apparently uses the same pen for veto’s and pardons, has given out 14 and commuted the sentences of 2 others. All were pretty much low level scumbags who pretty much hurt no one but themselves, but what about the border agents? Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., noted that the list also did not include former Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, who were convicted of shooting a drug smuggler and trying to cover it up. Ramos and Compean are each serving sentences of more than 10 years for shooting Osvaldo Aldrete Davila in the buttocks while...

    I heard Glenn Beck talking about them the other day and I was thinking about their situation... what did these men do wrong?! They are in prison for doing their jobs. This goes beyond tying one hand behind our border patrol agents' backs; this is like lopping their arms off and kicking them on the ground. These men literally did nothing wrong yet they sit rotting in federal prison for more than a decade. The leaders of the country they swore to protect have betrayed them both and have left them to a horrible fate. I can think of no...

    When a group of New Mexico State Police officers returned from two weeks of Hurricane Katrina relief efforts in Louisiana in September, they brought with them haunting tales of devastation, refugees and the wide swath of destruction the storm had wrought on the Gulf Coast.

The Sante Fe Reporter has learned New Mexico police allege they witnessed numerous and shocking incidents of police abuse committed by members of the Baton Rouge Police Department. According to New Mexico Department of Public Safety spokesman Peter Olson,...
