QUOTES

National Police Association Podcast #35 Officers who stopped a mass shooter cleared, Utah federal prosecutor slams weak state sentencing, and Officers stop man charging at them with knife


QUOTES

01:15 "The officers 'quite reasonably believed that they needed to use deadly force to protect innocent lives, and their own, from Legan's violent rampage,' Deputy Dist. Atty. Rob Baker wrote in the report."

04:26 "That's a direct result of the federal initiative, according to Huber, who criticized lawmakers for not allowing for more harsh sentencing guidelines for repeat offenders. The federal court system, he argued, allows for stiffer punishments for those with a criminal record who are caught with illegal firearms and large amounts of drugs."

06:36 "If a case is dismissed without prejudice, the charges are closed but can be reopened if a prosecuting agency sees fit. By taking this process, federal prosecutors effectively have a safety net in the event that their prosecutions are not successful; they can send the case back to state courts if needed."

09:11 "Mercado was shot by officers after dispatchers received a call saying a man with a knife was looking into cars in the area. When officers arrived, Mercado walked toward them with a folding knife in hand. Allred wrote that the officers shouted to Mercado to drop the knife a total of 23 times before they began firing their service weapons."

11:02 "He reportedly asked Mercado if he was OK, to which Mercado replied, “Yeah, are you OK?” The witness reportedly tried to ask Mercado if he was lost, but he did not respond to any other questions. The witness told police he felt “uncomfortable” so he decided to call police."

07:22 "'He was clearly armed and not only put our deputy's life at risk,' but others as well, Ivey said.

National Police Association Podcast #33 Milwaukee police prepare for Democratic National Convention


QUOTES

03:13 "Milwaukee is already receiving funds from Operation Relentless Pursuit, a federal effort to combat violent crime. The government will initially allocate $71 million to begin the operation across seven U.S. cities. Additional law enforcement funding may come from bills introduced by legislative Republicans' ‘tougher on crime' initiative, including $5 million in grants to combat carjackings."

04:31 “Mayes questions the moves to inflate law enforcement in the city. 'All this for the ‘protection' of the downtown, meanwhile if the rest of the city had that much to invest in the issues in the city seriously, they wouldn't need it to spend on perceived threats to wealthy visitors,' says Mayes. I'm absolutely concerned with the department using their new toys to target and intimidate residents and community leadership, mainly because they've done it consistently already.”

08:05 "Goyke doesn't necessarily disapprove of grant purchases by police being allowed to remain in the city, but he adds a major caveat. 'So long as it makes us a better, more welcoming community,' said Goyke, 'And that residents are not further targets of enhanced, saturated policing.'"

------------------------------

SUMMARY

In this episode of the National Police Association Podcast, Milwaukee is in the spotlight as a heavy police force has been deployed for the Democratic National Convention as the city is poised to receive $50 million more in federal grants.

There are many reactions to the developments, from local officials saying they have no say in the decision to deploy a militarized security force, to activists warning of the threats this new military hardware poses to local citizens long after the convention is done.

QUOTES

02:06 "'No -- I'm gonna help my husband!' she said. Surveillance video shows what happened next. With weapons drawn, both officers rush to confront Carter. He can be seen dropping the weapon and running out the door, but the husband and wife duo pursued him. They held him at gunpoint a few blocks away until LMPD officers arrived to arrest him."

04:03 "In the past, right-wing would-be leaders have seemingly exploited clashes with Portland left-wing counter-protesters as a tactic to raise their profile, intentionally walking into hostile crowds to spark a backlash that is captured on video. Often turning violent, such protests have fueled millions of dollars of expenses in police overtime."

05:23 "Howard, for his part, denies several aspects of the police report documenting conversations with him — for instance, that he doesn't have an address in Vancouver, that he flew in from out of town in advance of the rally, that he intended to fly KKK members in from other states and that he has a warrant out for his arrest in the state of Washington. 'I don't know where that's coming from,' he said."

11:04 "Though Howard did not show up on Feb. 8, others did, including about 200 protesters, many wearing black 'anti-fascist,' or 'antifa'-style masks. Police seemed to show little sympathy for those who appeared to try to provoke them, and three arrests were made."

------------------------------

SUMMARY

In this episode of the National Police Association Podcast, an off-duty husband and wife duo foiled a would-be robbery at Raising Cane's, holding the suspect at gunpoint until backup arrived.

And in Portland, Oregon, police forces deny a Ku Klux Klan protest attempt. The organizer, who has a complicated history with law enforcement, decided not to attend. However, supporters still arrived and police made three arrests.

Three cops were injured in what police officials have called an attempted assassination."

08:17 "Other police union leaders are troubled by all the elected officials in the state for enacting anti-cop legislation, including the controversial bail reform laws. They want changes. 'It sends a terrible message unto the community. It promotes criminal activity with no consequences,' said Detectives Benevolent Association President Paul DiGiacamo. 'The people who sufferÖ are the people out there enforcing the law.'"

The blemish near his flag tattoo is the smallest reminder of the 7.62-caliber bullet that tore through his right arm. Hird has been shot twice before, once in military combat, but the bullet fired from a dark street corner in Daytona Beach's Midtown neighborhood has by far had the greatest impact for the giant of a lawman."

07:09 "'It's just the nature of the beast,' Hird said. But Nikolow said, taking the type of gun into account, Hird's is a rare story of survival. 'The caliber of round from an AK-47 does a lot of damage. Not many people get hit by a round like that and live to tell it,' Nikolow said. 'He is lucky to be alive.'"

12:47 "Hird said his right arm is 70% functional and keeps improving. He said the shooting has made him more alert while on patrol. He holds no animosity against Roberts, the felon and trigger man, who changed his life with an illegal firearm."

people without bail, even people who have extensive criminal histories,' she
