Two Deputies Slain – But, Proper Procedure was Followed

by Jack

Here are two news stories, please compare the information provided and note the omissions from the first story.

This undated photo combo provided by the Kansas City police department shows from left, Deputy Theresa King and DeputyPatrick Rohrer. They look like they are the same size until you look at the flag in the background.  Wonder why they cropped the photos this way?  Read the story and find out

“Two sheriff’s deputies in Kansas who were shot while transporting inmates from a jail to a court hearing on Friday died of their injuries, the police in Kansas City, Kan., said on Saturday.

Officials said Friday that it appeared the deputies were shot with one of their own weapons.

“When they pulled into the parking lot and readied to transport these inmates, they were overcome,” Maj. Kelli Bailiff, a spokeswoman for the Wyandotte County sheriff’s office, said at a news conference on Friday. “It is very possible that with their own firearm they were both shot.”   (Their own firearm?  Their as in plural their?)

A suspect was also shot and brought to the University of Kansas Medical Center, officials said. The police did not release any information about the suspect’s condition other than to say Friday that the person was undergoing surgery.

The deputies, Patrick Rohrer, 35, and Theresa King, 44, were taken to the same hospital. Deputy Rohrer, a seven-year veteran of the office, died of his injuries on Friday. Deputy King died early on Saturday morning. She had been with the office for 13 years.

Wyandotte County sheriff’s Maj. Kelli Bailiff said. King, 44, died early on Saturday at a hospital. She had three children, including a young one.

Zeigler said the authorities were withholding the inmate’s name until he’s been formally charged, which is expected to happen next week.

The officials declined to go into more specifics about how the shooting happened, though Bailiff said the deputies had “followed proper procedure.”

(End of first story)

This next news clip is from KCTV news in AZ and it adds a lot more depth to the otherwise sanitized story. We now have facts the Sheriff declined to state in the first story.   The fact neither the suspect’s name nor his photo was released raised a big question.   The guy was in custody, what’s the problem?  This points to the Sheriff trying to buy time for reasons I shall soon try to make clear:

“…. Shooting suspect Antoine Fielder’s criminal history: multiple murder, drug charges In 2014, Fielder was paroled from prison after serving time on drug sale charges, according to Kansas Department of Corrections records.

Fielder was charged with first-degree murder for the 2015 shooting death of Kelsey K. Ewonus, 22, of Overland Park. Ewonus was found shot to death in her car. She left behind a son who had just celebrated his first birthday at the time of her death.  (See picture below and right.)

Fielder’s first trial for Ewonus’ murder ended in a hung jury, which resulted in a mistrial. The prosecution decided to try the case for the second time, but the trial again ended in a hung jury.

Last summer, it was announced that the case would be tried a third time. Fielder is awaiting that third trial.

Fielder was charged again two months ago for a second murder in 2017 in Kansas City, Missouri. That murder happened just three months after Fielder was released from custody due to the second hung jury in the Ewonus case.   He was then placed in the Jackson County Jail.”  And who is this monster, you may wonder?  Here is his picture as it appeared in the second news story.


There is no question in my mind that the Sheriff was trying to buy time and the initial news story was sanitized for your reading pleasure… uh, nothing to see here folks, move along please.   Don’t loiter and ask uncomfortable questions that could make us look bad.

But, that’s not the way we operate here at Post Scripts.  We like to raise uncomfortable questions and get to the truth of a story.  And let me tell you, knowing this backstory will raise some darn hard questions!  Questions that the public should have answered.

As you can now see,  the Sheriff has a racially charged incident, white cops and black defendant.  But, it gets far worse… the suspect was a known killer to his agency and common sense says that requires “special custody” tactics for the safety of deputies and the inmate.  Why weren’t the jailers weapons secured in a lock box until the prisoners were secured in the transport van?  This is policy at every police department I know!

I’m pretty sure the Sheriff and his administrators knew about 2 minutes into incident that the department’s procedure’s would be called into question!   How could they not be?  Their department procedures placed a loaded weapon within arms reach of a dangerous inmate.  Their [procedures] did not call for weapons to be secured until after the prisoners were secured.  Why not?

Thanks to our politically concerned sheriff, we still don’t know who’s weapon it was that killed the deputies, even though that information was immediately available…why?    Could it be because it may cast even more controversy on his policy and procedures?

The Sheriff’s procedures allowed this small woman jailer to transport a large, strong, male killer.  I’m not saying [she] did anything wrong – I’m ONLY questioning the judgement of using her in this prisoner transport position that placed her at high risk.

Common sense says if you were psyco-killer Antoine Fielder, you should attack the weakest link first in a bid to escape.  Disarm that person and go!  And between the two deputies in this case, who would that be?

I guess we should have sympathy for the Sheriff, because he has enough to deal with after losing two deputies, right?  Gee, maybe should not be bringing up how women are not equal to men just because they wear a badge and carry a gun?  Yes, yes I should!!!  Our law enforcement hiring practices should be questioned.   Equal opportunity has it’s limits.  To deny it does gets people killed.  And I don’t like good people dying because of a bad policy.

Politically correct people like to point to the exceptional female and proudly proclaim,  “She can whoop the heck out of most men…” but, that is of course again is the exception – not the average.

Average says, women are created physically different than men!  Average says, they lack the upper body strength of most men and they are just smaller.   This means, if you average out the number of dangerous contacts a female officer will encounter, her odds are worse than the male officers for survival and injury.  She may also need to use deadly force to more often….anyone bothered by that?  She is also more costly to train and retain.  Anyone care about that?

It’s an undeniable fact that females are at a significant disadvantage when it comes to upper body strength with a male opponent.  If they weren’t we would have ladies in the NFL, pro golf and pro tennis, etc.,  We have a women’s tee for a reason!   But, this is NEVER brought up in the news or even in academic circles, because its unfair to mention for the sake of diversity and equal opportunity!

Now we have two deputies slain for the sake of a hiring policy?  If the consensus of opinion in American is that this is fair, then fairness demands that we should never again watch professional sports until half the players are female and can compete fairly head to head with men!

Lastly, please don’t be ridiculous now (Libby) and think I am calling for a ban on all females in law enforcement.  I am not.   Women have many worthwhile positions within law enforcement and they can have rewarding, well paid and fulfilling careers.  I’m okay with that – I’m not okay with putting citizens and police officers at risk needlessly, when common sense says it could be easily fixed.

Happy Father’s Day, except for those…

by Jack

Happy Father’s Day to all Dad’s, except for those who left a string of kids all over the place wondering “Who was my daddy and why did he abandoned us?”

Happy Father’s Day, if you are a legal immigrant and you did not come here for the welfare benefits, you came here to work and be a good citizen. We’re thrilled to have you here!

Happy Father’s day, if you are not some wacko terrorist biding your time for the day when you get to strap on your homemade bomb vest or teaching your kids to do the same.

And finally, an extra special Happy Father’s day to all those wonderful men of good character, who stayed with their family, helped Mom raise the kids, (actually married their mother) and guided them into adulthood to become productive and responsible citizens. For you, well, words are hardly enough, but its safe to say, you have our eternal gratitude!

Those Deplorable, Lazy, Dumb, POS, Trump Voters…

Posted by Deplorable POS #52,678

On the campaign trail Hillary called half of Trump’s supporters a “basket of deplorables”…:

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” Clinton said. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.”

The IG report reveals that high level FBI employees had similar attitudes toward Trumps supporters:

10:43:46, FBI Employee: “I’m very upset.”
10:43:47, FBI Employee: “haha”
10:51:48, FBI Attorney 2: “I am so stressed about what I could have done differently.”
10:54:29, FBI Employee: “Don’t stress. None of that mattered.”
10:54:31, FBI Employee: “The FBI’s influence.”
10:59:36, FBI Attorney 2: “I don’t know. We broke the momentum.”
11:00:03, FBI Employee: “That is not so.”
11:02:22, FBI Employee: “All the people who were initially voting for her would not, and were not, swayed by any decision the FBI put out. Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing. They probably didn’t watch the debates, aren’t fully educated on his policies, and are stupidly wrapped up in his unmerited enthusiasm.”

Okay!

From one POS to all of you others…wasn’t it Obama that had all the “magic” abilities? I mean look what his voters believed he could do. Also here.

Obama’s election was “the moment” all right…it was the moment we were set on a course of endless joblessness, closing businesses, healthcare that “uneducated POS’s” couldn’t afford…and a planet that was no better, nor worse, than before…with thousands of pages of regulations that did nothing discernible or measurable to “save the planet” but put huge restraints and handcuffs on businesses at a great cost to the public.

These highly educated people think they are smarter than you and I, yet, they sound like high school kids.

Trump Foundation Sued

Posted by Tina

Happy Birthday Mr. President!

The Attorney General of New York announced a lawsuit targeting the Trump Foundation along with its directors, Donald Trump, his sons Eric and Donald Jr. and daughter Ivanka, for violating state and federal law covering private charities:

Attorney General Barbara Underwood alleges a pattern of persistent illegal conduct over more than a decade that includes extensive unlawful political coordination with the Trump presidential campaign.

Underwood is asking a court to dissolve the Trump Foundation and wants $2.8 million in restitution plus additional penalties.

The attorney general seeks to ban Trump from serving as a director of a New York not-for-profit for 10 years and Trump’s children from serving for one year.

The complaint alleges that the Trump Foundation engaged in repeated and willful self-dealing transactions to benefit Trump’s personal and business interests.

“As our investigation reveals, the Trump Foundation was little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his business to nonprofits, regardless of their purpose or legality,” Underwood said. “This is not how private foundations should function, and my office intends to hold the Foundation and its directors accountable for its misuse of charitable assets.”

The Trumps responded through a spokesperson:

“This is politics at its very worst,” a Trump Foundation representative said in a statement. “The Foundation has donated over $19 million to worthy charitable causes — more than it even received. The President himself — or through his companies – has contributed more than $8 million. The reason the Foundation was able to donate more than it took in is because it had little to no expenses. This is unheard of for a charitable foundation. The Foundation currently has $1.7 million remaining which the NYAG has been holding hostage for political gain. This is unconscionable — particularly because the Foundation previously announced its intention to dissolve more than a year and a half ago. The prior NYAG, who was recently forced to resign from office in disgrace, made it his stated mission to use this matter to not only advance his own political goals, but also for his own political fundraising. The acting NYAG’s recent statement that battling the White House is ‘the most important work (she) have ever done’ shows that such political attacks will continue unabated.”

The courts will sort it out.

Hillary and Bill Clinton are residents of New York. Their foundation was accused of spending as little as 10% on charity. Was there interest by the AG in NY in suing them? Well…the former AG of the state, Eric Schneiderman, who stepped down over sexual abuse claims, was a Clinton supporter who ran her NY campaign! No help there.

(No politics involved here either?????)

Inspector General Report is Out – “No Political Bias” (Hah!)

Posted by Tina

The Justice Department’s Inspector General report on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation has finally been released. Information from the report is trickling into the media.

The full report is here. Here we go…

Breitbart-Big Government, “Report: Peter Strzok Vowed ‘We’ Would ‘Stop’ Trump from Becoming President”

Bloombergs, Jennifer Jacobs:

“Several FBI employees Who played critical roles in the investigation sent political messages,” IG report says.

It cites Lisa Page text to Peter Strzok: “(Trump’s) not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”

Strzok: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

Initial reporting to Congress on this exchange didn’t include (purposely?) Strzok’s response.

DOJ confirmed the authenticity of the email content.

Gateway Pundit, “BREAKING: IG Report to Weigh in on Hatch Act Violations at FBI ‘Officials Using Their Authority to Interfere With an Election”

Investigative reporter Paul Sperry says the IG report will weigh in on Hatch Act violations at the FBI.

(Paul) Sperry tweeted: BREAKING: Bombshell IG report to weigh in on Hatch Act violations at FBI — specifically, employees using their official authority or influence “to interfere with or affect the result of an election”

Sperry also cautioned: IG Horowitz and Comey go way back to the 90’s as US Attorneys in New York…and his wife gave money to Obama:

CAUTION: IG Michael Horowitz and James Comey worked together in 1990s in US Attorneys office in Manhattan. In addition, Horowitz married to former CNN and PBS producer, who gave money to Obama and who previously worked as a senior aide to Dukakis during presidential campaign

It’s hysterical of course but apparently they found “insubordination” on Comey’s part but no “political bias”… his actions “damaged bureau image”

Image! Who cares about image. What about the rule of law? What about evidence that Hillary Clinton and others broke laws and seem to be getting away with it while her lessers in government are given jail sentences for lesser crimes? don;t we deserve a court ruling on that rather than a government department opinion? Well…

Horowitz said that five FBI officials expressed hostility toward Trump before his election as president and disclosed in his report to Congress on Thursday that their actions have been referred to the bureau for possible disciplinary action.

One example cited in the new report is an exchange of texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page on Aug. 8, 2016. Page questioned whether Trump would become president. Strzok replied: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

Under those circumstances, Horowitz said “we did not have confidence that Strzok’s decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up” on new evidence in the Clinton case “was free from bias.” …

… the inspector general called it “extraordinary and insubordinate for Comey to conceal his intentions from his superiors, the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, for the admitted purpose of preventing them from telling him not to make the statement, and to instruct his subordinates in the FBI to do the same.”

He said that “we did not find that these decisions were the result of political bias on Comey’s part,” but “by departing so clearly and dramatically from FBI and department norms, the decisions negatively impacted the perception of the FBI and the department as fair administrators of justice.”

The report also noted that Comey used personal email at times to conduct official business.

Horowitz examined actions taken by top officials before the 2016 election, including the handling of the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state. The inquiry expanded to touch on an array of politically sensitive decisions by officials including Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

We await the announcement, if any, of referrals to the AG for indictments. Not holding my breath. So far those in government seem ultimately to cover for each other.

Washington Times, “FBI orders bias training for employees after latest embarrassing emails”

The FBI will make its employees undergo bias training, Director Christopher Wray promised Thursday, in one of a number of steps he said they’ll take to try to prevent a repeat of problems that plagued the bureau during the 2016 election.

Mr. Wray made the promise in response to the new inspector general’s report detailing the stream of text messages from two top FBI employees during the campaign. …

… The new report said that while bias didn’t appear to affect the big decisions in the handling of the initial investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email practices, they couldn’t rule out a role for bias in pushing the FBI to focus on the Russia probe in October 2016, rather than go back to review a new set of emails found on the laptop of Anthony Weiner, who was married to Mrs. Clinton’s top personal aide, Huma Abedin.

Mr. Wray said he’s ordered a review of FBI procedures and how agents mix their political duties with personal opinions.

More information will follow as journalists and Congress Critters consume the content of this very long report. FBI will hold news conference at 5:30 Eastern today.

Related: <a href="http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/06/14/foreign-actors-accessed-hillary-clinton-emails-documents-show.html, “‘Foreign actors’ accessed Hillary Clinton emails, documents show”

“Foreign actors” obtained access to some of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails — including at least one email classified as “secret” — according to a new memo from two GOP-led House committees and an internal FBI email.

Fox News obtained the memo prepared by the House Judiciary and Oversight committees, which lays out key interim findings ahead of next week’s hearing with Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz. …

… “Documents provided to the Committees show foreign actors obtained access to some of Mrs. Clinton’s emails — including at least one email classified ‘Secret,'” the memo says, adding that foreign actors also accessed the private accounts of some Clinton staffers.

The memo does not say who the foreign actors are, or what material was obtained, but it notes that secret information is defined as information that, if disclosed, could “reasonably be expected to cause serious damage to the national security.”

The committees say that no one appears to have been held accountable either criminally or administratively. …

… Relatedly, Fox News has obtained a May 2016 email from FBI investigator Peter Strzok — who also is criticized in the House memo for his anti-Trump texts with colleague Lisa Page. The email says that “we know foreign actors obtained access” to some Clinton emails, including at least one “secret” message “via compromises of the private email accounts” of Clinton staffers.

Thousands Got US Citizenship Using Stolen Identities

Submitted by Peggy:

EXCLUSIVE: NEW USCIS OFFICE INVESTIGATING THOUSANDS WHO GOT US CITIZENSHIP THROUGH IDENTITY FRAUD: Daily Caller:

A new government office created to investigate bogus naturalization applications estimates there are at least 3,000 cases of aliens who used false identities to obtain U.S. citizenship, federal officials told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The office, housed inside U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), has identified the potential fraud cases as a part of its ongoing review of more than 300,000 fingerprint records uploaded to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) database beginning in 2014.

Based on the review to date, officials could uncover more than 3,000 instances where an ineligible alien assumed another identity and used it to become a U.S. citizen, USCIS associate director for field operations Daniel Renaud told TheDCNF Tuesday in an interview.

The targeted review stems from a 2016 DHS inspector general report that found roughly 315,000 old fingerprint records for people who had been deported or had criminal convictions had not been uploaded to a DHS database of immigrants’ identities. As immigration authorities enrolled the paper records into the DHS system, they discovered hundreds of cases where an alien with an order of removal under one name had been naturalized under another identity.

The records in question were taken by the now-defunct Immigration and Naturalization Service in the 1990s and early 200os, before DHS’s biometric database — IDENT — was created.

Politics don’t appear to be involved here…just the bloated, inefficient, lethargic, unaccountable nature of the federal bureaucracy. (Not that Democrats don’t benefit)

Another good reason for a limited federal government. Immigration is the responsibility of the federal government. A less bloated government would force better transparency an make it easier to hold employees accountable.

Charitable Giving UP – “Stingy Capitalists” Give More Than Ever!

Posted by Tina

One of the lefts favorite memes about capitalists is that if you give the stingy jerks a tax break they will keep the money for themselves. This false accusation has no basis in reality. Our economy has boomed following tax breaks. The wealthy are investing their money int the economy, businesses are expanding and growing, job growth and wages are up. It’s a new day in America. But there’s more. A report out today illustrates another benefit:

NEW YORK (AP) — Fueled by a surging stock market and huge gifts from billionaires, charitable giving in the United States in 2017 topped the $400 billion mark for the first time, according to the latest comprehensive report on Americans’ giving patterns.

The Giving USA report, released Tuesday, said giving from individuals, estates, foundations and corporations reached an estimated $410 billion in 2017 — more than the gross domestic product of countries such as Israel and Ireland. The total was up 5.2 percent in current dollars (3 percent adjusted for inflation) from the estimate of $389.64 billion for 2016.

Charitable giving by the less wealthy segments of our society remain stagnant for now. I suspect that as wages and good jobs continue to increase, and families recover from eight years of economic misery, giving by this group will also tick up once again.

Americans have always been charitable…I hoe we always will be.

So much for the stingy capitalist lie!

Historic Agreement in Singapore

Posted by Tina

I’ll say what the main stream left crazed media won’t say…Donald Trump and his magnifiscent team have made history and opened doors to North Korea that previously have been locked shut. The agreement, signed by President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un, represents a first positive step toward a better world. The agreement states:

Convinced that the establishment of new U.S.-DPRK relations will contribute to the peace and prosperity of the Korean Peninsula and of the world, and recognizing that mutual confidence building can promote the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un state the following:

1. The United States and the DPRK commit to establish new U.S.-DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.

2. The United States and the DPRK will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.

3. Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

4. The United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.

Having acknowledged that the U.S.-DPRK summit—the first in history—was an epochal event of great significance in overcoming decades of tensions and hostilities between the two countries and for the opening up of a new future, President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un commit to implement the stipulations in this joint statement fully and expeditiously. The United States and the DPRK commit to hold follow-on negotiations, led by the U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, and a relevant high-level DPRK official, at the earliest possible date, to implement the outcomes of the U.S.-DPRK summit.

President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have committed to cooperate for the development of new U.S.-DPRK relations and for the promotion of peace, prosperity, and security of the Korean Peninsula and of the world.

Trump showed Kim a video during their talks which showed the dictator what could be possible for his country if he agreed to denuclearize:

“Seven billion people inhabit Planet Earth. Of those alive today, only a small number will leave a lasting impact. And only the very few will make decisions or take actions that renew their homeland and change the course of history,” the video’s narrator says.

“History is always evolving, and there comes a time when only a few are called upon to make a difference. But the question is: What difference will the few make? The past doesn’t have to be the future.”

The narrator continues: “A new world can begin today, one of friendship, respect and goodwill. Be part of that world, where the doors of opportunity are ready to be opened.”

Leaving North Korea’s future in Kim’s hands, the narrator asks, “Will this leader choose to advance his country and be part of a new world? Be the hero of his people? Will he shake the hand of peace and enjoy prosperity like he has never seen? A great life, or isolation? Which path will be chosen?”

Trump said he believed Chairman Kim liked what he saw in the video.

The carrot is an opportunity for Kim to leave the dark past behind and welcome in a bright, more satisfying future for himself and his people.

Kim Jong Un began to test President Trump as soon as he took office and a series of provocative acts were met with layers of sanctions. Trump also enlisted the aid of China. As the confrontation devolved into public mud slinging, Trump planned for every possible outcome. A man of his word, Trumps reputation preceded him. The strategy worked. Kim stepped back. And thus began substantive talks that would lead to the historic moment on June 12, 2018 when the two leaders came together to begin walking down this new path of engagement.

No one can say for sure what will happen next. The left is more interested in petty politics than the possibility of improved conditions. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Trump acted in “haste” and got only “vague promises.” Both are vapid mischaracterizations of the efforts that have been, and will be, made in future. Even prior to the summit left pundits and politicians were saying that Trump was too inexperienced and unprepared to negotiate….blah, blah, blah…

News flash! Trump has been observing and considering ideas since at least 1999. See video of Trump talking about the North Korea problem with Wolf Blitzer at Gateway Pundit.

The thing that encourages me is that Trump and his team are committed to the long game. This was not a negotiated photo op that once done the parties simply move on. This was not a bribery scheme to construct a legacy with little thought to unintended consequences. This is thoughtful, honest, diplomacy that came from outside the box.

We’ve never been here before. Forget the negative left….let’s give it a chance to work.

Military Denies Secret Missile Launch

by Jack

On the day of President Trump’s historic meeting with North Korean dictator, Kim Jung Un, the U.S. Navy, for reasons not yet disclosed, decided to do a missile launch from the USS Ohio, a guided-missile submarines (SSGN), informed sources believe.

The missile launch was followed by an  immediate denial by the military.  The launch took place in broad daylight off the coast of Washington state, near Whidbey Island and it was captured on camera.

A missile launch for whatever reasons at this time could be considered highly provocative and in bad judgement because it could threaten the peace talks in Singapore.  So, is this the reason for the denial coming from the Pentagon?  One can only wonder, but it’s clearly a missile and there are no fixed launch sites in the area.  Add to the fact that there were no missile capable surface craft reported in the area and this is in the patrol area of the USS Ohio armed with up to 154 missiles.

Reasonable deductions can be made that the U.S. Navy was the responsible, so why the denial?  Was it a screw up in timing?
