06:50 "'To say this [the flag] was created to be anti any other

movement, to say this is [a] white supremacist or divisive symbol is

just outrageous,' O'Donnell said. 'You know, five minutes of research

would have proved otherwise.' O'Donnell believes the move by Elrich is

strictly political because a similar 'thin red line' flag given to the

nearby fire department from the same family did not spark

the adult male passenger pulled out a handgun. That's when an officer

National Police Association Podcast 4: Cops under fire and Project Safe Neighborhoods.


01:42 "The five-day operation targeting fugitives wanted for violent criminal offenses in Creek County was finalized this week. 'Today, 34 violent offenders have been apprehended as a result of Operation Fallback,' said U.S. Attorney Trent Shores."

04:11 "Heuser-Whitaker and his nine co-conspirators worked in at least six-man teams for each robbery, which included inside and outside look-outs, getaway drivers, and two gunmen. The robbery crew used police scanners to monitor law enforcement activity and earpieces to communicate with one another."

05:41 "Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime."

08:59 "One of the greatest concerns is the increasing number of privately made weapons that do not carry serial numbers and are sold illegally, said Jennifer Cicolani, the assistant agent in charge of the San Francisco division of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives."

11:41 "Through Project Safe Neighborhoods we use data driven approaches to focus prosecution resources and investigation resources on the most violent. But that's not all we do. We also engage the probation office, social agencies, churches, charities so that if there are those that are moving in that direction or on the precipice of that activity, we give them a hard talking to and say, 'Hey you're on our radar screen,' Martin said."



In this episode of the National Police Association Podcast, police go on the offensive to enforce Project Safe Neighborhoods and its affiliated operations, the Justice Department's core initiative to reduce violent crime from all over the country.

In fact, there is a video which shows city supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer starting a profanitylaced chant against the police officer's association." 08:16 "'It used to be that a Glock pistol was the status symbol. Now I want this with the full automatic. This is the cool thing to have,' ATF agent Brian Hester said, while demonstrating how guns without serial numbers and with conversion kits can be assembled." 10:53 "More than 30 law enforcement men and women from Allegheny, Beaver, and Washington counties were honored for their heroic bravery and dedication above and beyond the call of duty."

 SUMMARY In this episode of the National Police Association Podcast, a politician hurls disrespect against the police and the DOJ reports success in drive to bring guns off the streets. San Francisco supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer is caught on video leading a profanity-laden chant against their own police association. Tony Montoya, president of the San Francisco Police Officers Association, went on the offensive to denounce the disrespect. Meanwhile, the DOJ reports that more guns are off the street due to more targeted efforts from Project Safe Neighborhoods. Elsewhere, another suicide by cop incident is also reported in San Jose as the suspect approached a group of high school students with a replica gun in hand. He was fatally shot by an officer armed with a rifle. A man dressed up as Jesus for Halloween assaults an officer and flees to Idaho.

National Police Association Podcast #2 Police Shootings, Memorials and Awards

QUOTES 00:59 "Lodi police spokesperson Lieutenant Mike Manetti said sometimes officers don't know what kind of firepower they'll be facing until they arrive on the scene. 'There's a sense of urgency that goes into it, no matter how competent you feel with your firearm. You definitely don't want to be under-matched like that,' Manetti said." 03:33 "A chase of a stolen vehicle starting in North Georgia ends in Tennessee with an officer involved shooting. The suspect was shot, and a deputy was injured in the pursuit. It started in Dade County, and ended in Marion County." 05:56 "The pursuing officers could not pull Eukenio off the other officer and deployed a Taser to stop the assault. Eukenio was removed from the officer but placed both his hands under his stomach near his waistband and refused to move them, police said. A Taser was deployed for a second time, and the officers gained control of Eukenio's arms and placed him in handcuffs." 08:07 "Before a standing-room-only crowd, Sgt. Daniel Haines was presented with the police department's 'Medal of Courage,' a new award given to officers who achieve 'a highly unusual accomplishment.'

SUMMARY

 In this episode of the National Police Association Podcast, police shootings, memorials, and awards take the limelight. Reports of trespassing and stolen vehicles also made the front pages.

A stolen car chase that started in North Georgia and ended in Tennessee results in violence. The pursuing police car is wrecked, injuring the officer, while the suspect was shot.

National Police Association Podcast #1: Police Injuries and Anti-Police Protests


"The demonstration formed soon after 7 p.m. on the streets near the Barclays Center, with protesters unfurling large banners that read 'F—k the police' and 'Don't let these pigs touch us.' The crowd began dispersing by 9 p.m. The demonstration was in response to a planned crackdown on fare evasion by the NYPD — and two controversial police actions in Brooklyn subway stations in recent weeks."

"'Arresting people who can't afford a $2.75 fare makes no-one safer and destabilizes our community,' she said. 'New Yorkers know that, they're not having it and they're standing up for each other.'"

"'The flag provides a symbol of support to some but it is a symbol of dismissiveness to others. Because it is divisive, the flag will not be posted at the 5th District nor in any public space within the Police Department,' Elrich said in a written statement. 'Under my administration, we are committed to improving police relations with the community and will immediately address any action that stands against our mission.'"

"Fire Station 31 continues to display its handcrafted flag. In fact, the International Association of Fire Fighters Local 1664 posted a handful of photos on its Facebook Page thanking Shelton and his son for their kindness and 'amazingly detailed' work."

"Kidik was answering a seemingly routine call about a landlord-tenant dispute on May 17, 2018 at 5 Constitution Plaza, the Spectra Boutique Apartments. Kidik made her way to the tenant's ninth floor apartment and was attacked. She suffered serious stab wounds to her neck and throat. Nearby building employees pulled the attacker off her and fellow Hartford police officers rushed her to an ambulance and cleared a path to Hartford Hospital, where surgeons saved her."



In this episode of the National Police Association Podcast, police forces have made headlines mostly due to sustained and inflicted injuries, as well as anti-police protests. 

In Florida, a man armed with a sword charged at a deputy screaming, "Shoot me!" and was gunned down. Meanwhile, police forces from New York are facing intense backlash for their planned crackdown on fare evasion, with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez backing the protesters. 

In Maryland, a "Thin Blue Line" flag is dividing the community with some viewing it as racist and the intervention of a MoCo executive as a political move. Elsewhere, a detective who suffered a horrific knife attack last year was forced to retire due to irreparable damage to her neck and throat.
