Get Ready for a More Militarized Police Force

 

October 3, 2019



Some of us just might remember when President Barack Obama’s executive order prohibited law enforcement agencies from obtaining military equipment. Just recently President Donald Trump rescinded that executive order so it just might be a short period of time before equipment starts rolling in from warehouse and military depots.

Let there be no mistake: Sergeant Rubenstein is prepared to be a training non-commissioned officer at Fort Culver City. However, prior to exercising I would like to order 200 cases of pepper spray, 150 bayonets, 6 assault helicopters, 25 sets of brass knuckles, gas masks, X – large ammo magazines, eight 30 caliber machine guns.

The police must protect us from the malcontents, bushwhackers and bandits. Eventually, the people locked up will be sent back which in turn will leave in my opinion for President Trump to incarcerate Democratic liberals and progressives.

My friend who is known by his nickname, “Inflamed Tonsils” told me another rumor going around town. Word has it that former Mayor Jim Clarke’s name just might appear on the next Culver City ballot for City Council. If I remember correctly, Jim was, for a while, Congresswoman Diane Watson’s chief of staff.

Deadwood, South Dakota is preparing to open a brothel museum.

A while back we were in the State of New York and I missed a golden opportunity to drive a relative short distance to see the Lucy Desi Museum in her hometown of Jamestown, New York.

The Associated Press reported State District Judge Beau Higgensbotham sentenced Sean-Paul Gott of Louisiana for a hazing death caused by alcohol. Gott received a sentence of 30 days behind bars. The American Legion Magazine reports.

There have been 2,100 U.S. newspapers shut down since 2004. There are 1,449 counties in the United States with only one newspaper. There are 171 counties that do not have a newspaper.

It’s been 45 years since President Gerald Ford announced a conditional amnesty program for Vietnam war deserters and draft-evaders.

The voters should be concerned with the constant rumors from the Board of Education headquarters on Irwin place. Some feel the board will try to pass still another tax even though Sacramento is sending big, big money to our school district, as well as, others. Teachers in California are the highest paid in our nation according to Transparent California.

Frankly speaking, this trade war has shown China to be probably as strong as the United States. So, why are we pushing Japanese? If the district has other priorities, then let the parents hire a language teacher and teach several times a week after school for 60-minute sessions.

For those who haven’t read their copy of the Island Packet Marine Corps, Capt. Anneliese Satz became the first female to pilot the F-35. She received her training at Beaufort, South Carolina Air Station.

It’s just amazing what one will find in my files. From almost 40 years ago (March 24, 1980), a letter from U.S. Sen. Cranston for Senate Committee expressing an interest to address the Culver City Lakeside Villa Homeowner Association.
