ILEETA, 2024

19 Mar 23   ILEETA, 2024   Vicki and I are at the 2024 ILEETA (International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association) Convention here in St Louis.   All LEOs need to be members!

Our Justice System, Wounded!

16 Mar 24   “Wrath and anger are hateful things. Yet, the sinner hugs them tightly”   From the Book of Sirach, 27:30.

“The Narrative”

14 Mar 23   Controlling the Narrative:   Back on 6 Feb 24, a man precipitously hurled two cans of burning liquid at a group of people waiting for a train on NYC’s Subway System in Manhattan.

Envy, celebrated!

4 Mar 24   Inflationary Economy:   In many states, certainly blue states, shoplifting (along with most other forms of thievery) is de-facto legal!   It is now common for brazen thieves to enter a store like any other shopper, openly pick up what they want, and exit without paying. They don’t even need to […]
