Parish the thought: Louisiana law sham caught on cell cam

An unwelcome sign of Louisiana police corruption gives a whole new meaning to good use of a cell

An unwelcome sign of Louisiana’s continuing police corruption is revealed by cell phone video.

Lame frame, blame shame, same game

Douglas Dendinger, 47, is a disabled veteran.  He very nearly went to prison on a totally manufactured beef in Washington Parish, LA.

This whole mess started on August 20, 2012.  Dendinger was paid $50 to serve a summons on behalf of his nephew who had an action pending against Chad Cassard, a Bogulsa PD officer, in a police brutality lawsuit.

Dendinger served the papers in accordance with the law.  About 20 minutes later the cops showed up at his house and arrested him on charges of battery, obstruction of justice and intimidating a witness.  Two of those charges are felonies and as Dendinger is an ex-con he could have been looking at a long trip up the river.

"Thank you, Governor Brown, for teaching me the true meaning of rehabilitation!"-Joe Dirtbag
Brown-grading Public Safety

Oh, the irony, Jerry Brown! Whether you knew it or not, Paco had your back! This past Wednesday evening, as a function of my security duties at the Riverside Convention Center, I was assigned to assist Governor Jerry Brown’s protection team for a few hours. How ironic was that! The governor had been scheduled to speak at a dinner hosted by the California Police Chiefs’ Association (CPCA), as the highlight of a week-long training conference in Riverside. There had been no announcements in the press of his scheduled visit, and the convention center was literally

Brown’s Killer Decision-making

Under the Black Sun: Letting murderers go free – Jerry Brown likes what he sees, but not all murderers up for parole are happy Richard Krupp, PhD February 24, 2015 In the Gray Davis days very few convicted murderers made it from the parole board process through the Governor’s desk to the community. Actually only two percent were ever paroled. During the Schwarzenegger years the murderers fared a little better, gaining parole 25 percent of the time. Jerry Brown is much kinder, tolerant, or soft on killers–80 percent seem ready for release to the streets

Let's all be open about the death penalty shall we? Death sucks!
Utah’s House Seeks Accurate Aim

Utah anti-death penalty crowd again is off target The anti-capital punishment/anti-death penalty folks never cease to amuse and frustrate me. Perhaps it is because the press grants them way too much attention. It is as if those who oppose the death penalty are the only voices that matter in the public discourse over executions. Does it matter to anyone in the anti-death penalty camp that voters in many states continue to demand, vote for, and affirm the need for State executions of heinous murderers? Are they concerned that the highest court in the country has

Attorneys for three Oklahoma inmates take another shot in the dark at lethal injections
Feel-good SCOTUS Appeal Halts OK Executions

Bleeding Heart Standard: ANY Pain a Killer Feels Is Too Painful for Eighth Amendment Guidelines According to a report from The Christian Science Monitor, on January 28, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) agreed to hear a last-minute appeal from three Oklahoma death row inmates. The State of Oklahoma has suspended the scheduled executions of those inmates, due to the appeal argument that the lethal injection protocol and specifically, the drug (midazolam), which is a part of that protocol, might not effectively cause unconsciousness in the condemned, which could cause them to

The California prison system just announced they have successfully off-loaded tens of thousands of criminals to relieve prison overcrowding. What a significant moment. Though the health of the communities around the state have and continue to suffer, we are undoubtedly well on our way to roomier prison accommodations and better health for criminal offenders. Judges, politicians and criminal advocates are rejoicing. In fact, they are flushed with excitement. Maybe the legislature should consider a new state holiday

Way back in the old days (when dinosaurs still walked the earth), the formerly great State of California passed what is known as a Welfare Queen law.  This law said that the State would cap the increase in welfare grants for women who continued to crank out babies at State expense.  It was believed at the time (correctly to some extent) that some people, especially young unmarried mothers, were using the system as a cash cow.  They would give birth to increase their welfare check. State Senator Holly Mitchell of L. A. is now launching

According to liberals, there are two ways to police America, one for the white middle class and one for the black underclass As I mentioned last week, NYPD’s ‘Broken Windows’ approach to crime, also known as ‘Quality-of-Life Maintenance Policing,’ has been criticized by liberals as imposing a white, middle-class morality on urban populations. In other words, according to those liberal critics, there should be two standards of morality in America, one for the white middle class and one for the black underclass. The term ‘Broken Windows’ arose out of the concept that those who commit

Krupp Files

Juvenile delinquents often grow up to be prison inmates. Does CYA help or hinder this trend? See why a CYA client fails?

Group Homes for Youth Without Youth? Why not CYA? Richard Krupp, PhD February 26, 2015 Years ago the California Youth Authority (CYA) facilities housed around 6,000 wards with another 4,000 on parole supervision—youths who had lost their youth. I used to work at the one called Youth Training School. Law suits and policy changes decimated the old CYA. Are any of the old facilities capable of housing people? I know the Stockton facilities have transformed into adult inmate medical facilities that reportedly provide little treatment at a very high cost. Why would anyone care?

Though elephants have poor eyesight, apparently they can recognize faces after years of absence (http://tinyurl.com/me2ns4f.)
