The Madness of Misconduct

The public should not expect misconduct from those to whom public funds are entrusted.

The public should not expect misconduct from those to whom public funds are entrusted. Or should they?

Prison-employee misconduct; money and drugs: Am I out of touch? Am I out of my place?

Richard Krupp, PhD
September 1, 2015

Given the large number of employees working in the prison system there are bound to be a number of people involved in suspect behavior.

Sometimes the antics they are involved in seem almost comical. Often rational thought processes are suspended or arrogance, connected with positions of power, take over.

Perhaps it is merely a momentary lapse in judgment and common sense?

At any rate, some of these misdeeds make the news. (more…)

Who Keeps Statistics on Gay Violence Against Straights? Two news stories jumped off the news wire this week that highlighted a previously taboo subject as well as politically incorrect topic: Gay criminal violence against straights. In our politically correct world, who keeps statistics on gay violence against straights? The most visibly horrific story occurred in Virginia involving the shooting death of a straight news reporter and her straight cameraman by a gay ex-news station co-worker, who captured his crimes on his cell phone and posted them on social media sites before committing suicide.

If Black Lives Matter, why do so many young Black males illegally carry guns?
Bad Press, Militant Activism, Policing, and the Public Trust

The Least Bit Culpable when Black Lives Matter When I first joined police work in the summer of 1979, I repeatedly heard from my superiors, as well as from my academy instructors, that policing was much like being a goldfish inside a fish bowl. The premise was that, unlike any other profession, you were constantly being watched by members of the public (citizens as well as criminals) and elements of the press. This became particularly important to remember on the graveyard shift because of stringers (news-for-sale videographers who used police scanners to jump hot police

Jerry Brown: Realignment to Avoid Sexual Reassignment

Murderer “Transgender Jeff” Norsworthy granted parole Proving once again that Democrats are more concerned about money than public safety, Governor Jerry Brown did nothing—NOTHING—to oppose the parole of convicted murderer and transgender inmate Jeffrey (aka: Michelle) Norsworthy (Fox News link to story http://tinyurl.com/nt2juoz.) The most likely grant of parole avoided a costly decision handed down by an appellate judge that the State owed Jeffrey a costly sex change operation on the taxpayer dime. Imagine that! A convicted murderer is granted parole in order to avoid having the State foot the bill for a sex change inside

2015 Trend: Cops More Likely to be Killed by Armed Black Males

Badge-Profiling: Death by Gunfire In all probability, I will be accused of being a racist for mentioning this trend. In all likelihood, our government will never make any correlation concerning this information because it is unfavorable politically and could be blown out of proportion because of its statistical certainty. That would embarrass the left-friendly race-baiters who are the darlings of the press. If only a reasonable discussion could be had in the public arena of debate. Is it too much to ask for an investigative reporter or media outlet to do some checking—connect the dots

True Facts On Number Of Imprisoned Drug Offenders

Obama is either deliberately lying or ignorant of the true facts when he declares that the imprisonment of nonviolent drug offenders is “the real reason our prison population is so high” When President Obama addressed the NAACP annual convention in Philadelphia July 14, he bemoaned the high incarceration rate of black nonviolent drug offenders and called for reform of the criminal justice system. He blamed our mass incarceration on the large number of nonviolent drug offenders sent to prison. Obama also said that mass incarceration prevents too many people, especially minority men, from contributing to

Planned Parenthood’s Femme Fatales Exposed! A Win-win for Women! Perhaps morality in America is beyond repair. Still, as a man of faith, I remain hopeful. In spite of attempts to deny, distract, and distance themselves from a looming scandal, liberals, especially the liberal press, cannot counter the alarming disclosures coming from the mouths of the upper echelon of Planned Parenthood. These Mermaids of Monstrous Surgeries (MOMS) have been caught on secretly videotaped discussions (by a pro-life group) boasting openly about using other women to turn profits from harvested human baby parts for scientific research.

Illegal Immigration: What Should Never Have Happened

When the Alarms Sound, There is a Fire As has been previously stated at Pacovilla.com, the rule of law and the enforcement of law are both the boundaries of good conduct as well as the sanctions for bad conduct. No murderer was ever prevented from taking a human life by the notion of law anymore than a motorist was prevented from speeding down the freeway by a posted speed limit sign. However, enforcement of the law often changes behavior and consistent enforcement generally minimizes lawlessness. One need only take a glance across our southern border

Advocates for prison reform love to stir the pot without considering what the stew contains
Prisons Are Not Playgrounds

Recipe For Prison Harmony, Just Ad-Seg There seems to be a distinct disconnect in the public’s perception of proverbial prison life versus the reality of State-run institutionalized care for criminals. Prison advocacy and special interest groups, as well as political hacks, are often responsible for this confusion. For the sake of argument, let’s simplify some definitions. Criminals are, by the nature of their bad behaviors, bad people. They willingly break laws—a lot of laws. Law-abiding citizens, by the absence of criminal behavior, are good people. Good people generally frown upon law-breaking. Prisons were built by

Abortion has been long considered by many to be an acceptable standard within American culture based merely upon the notion that because abortion was ruled legal via court decision, somehow that interpretation of law made the procedure of abortion a justifiable option (on the part of a pregnant woman), therefore ethically reasonable
