LAPD tell ICE to stop identifying themselves as police

A representative with the DEA says members of that unit generally identify themselves as "DEA" not police.

Officials in Los Angeles have asked Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents working in the city not to identify themselves as police.

In a letter addressed to the ICE deputy field office director who handles immigration enforcement, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, City Attorney Mike Feuer, and president of the city council Herb Wesson wrote:

"In Los Angeles, the term 'police' is synonymous with the Los Angeles Police Department, so for ICE agents to represent themselves as police misleads the public into believing they are interacting with LAPD. This is especially corrosive given that to advance public safety, the LAPD does not initiate police action with the objective of determining a person's immigration status."

The letter cited reporting by the Los Angeles Times that described an agent for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which is part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, identifying him or herself as a police officer.

But if things are going to change, they might want to consider taking "police" off the vests that ICE agents wear:

There's a time and a place for everything

And standing on the court while in possession of the ball is NOT the time to tie your shoe!





Those Subway SOBs!

Confession: I have eaten more than my fair share of Subway meals over many years. It was located across the street from my former workplace so it was handy to grab lunch there and it is billed as a healthier "fast food" alternative.

The first major strike against them was having a perv as an international spokesperson (although in fairness to Subway, they didn't hire Jared knowing he is a pedophile and dropped him when word broke).

The second major strike against them were media reports that they used a chemical in their bread products to make it more pliable. It's the same chemical used in the manufacturing of yoga mats. It serves no other purpose. I also fault government regulatory agencies for allowing that crap to be used in food for human consumption. Public pressure convinced Subway to remove that damn chemical a few years ago (although by that point I had probably consumed enough of it that I should have been able to roll myself up like a yoga mat).

The latest mess is a Canadian broadcaster investigation into grilled chicken sandwiches from popular fast food chains. They had a bunch of them tested for content and the only one that came back at about 50% chicken content and 50% soy (filler) was the Subway chicken breast. Of course I've eat a metric ton of those things over the years as well. I'm not opposed to consuming soy but it's the principle. The use of it is strictly profit driven, reducing cost, and Subway should be more up front with consumers about the composition of their menu offerings.

Now, I'm not threatening a boycott. I won't go that far. But I will keep an eye on how Subway addresses this latest fiasco.

Donald Trump handshake in amusing CGI :)

How did I miss this? CNN made mention of it a few minutes ago. Hilarious!

Caregiver who gave lapdance to 100 year old man and talked sexually to him faces charges

The comments on these stories tend to skew towards men saying, "That's what I'd want to happen to me when I'm 100" and women saying, "That was totally inappropriate. He has dementia!"

A 26-year-old former nursing home employee in Sandusky, Ohio, was charged after she performed lewd acts in front of a 100-year-old resident that were captured on cellphone video, police said this week.

"She is basically harassing him," Sandusky Police Department Detective Anthony Bath told KTLA sister station WJW.

The care worker, Brittany Fultz, faces a charge of gross sexual imposition, but it's possible she could face additional charges, WJW reported on Tuesday.

"It's disturbing," Bath said of the incident, which took place in December. "She is touching him. This was not something he wanted."

The video was taken by another former caregiver who was in the room at the time. The footage shows Fultz performing alleged lewd acts in front of the man and then straddling his leg, Bath said.

Question about hidden posts

Hey you guys...

I know this probably should be directed at the administrators, but it can take several days to get a response there. It's a simple question and I'm guessing some vets here know the answer. I was looking for a longtime DU member and noticed he/she hadn't posted in a month, even though he/she is normally active.

When I checked that person's profile and noticed that he/she had 5 hidden posts in the past 90 days. So I'm wondering if that resulted in some sort of suspension? Anyone know if that's the policy?

Off-duty LAPD fires warning shot in scuffle with teens who walked on his lawn

Methinks someone is going to face the music. Almost everything you do in public these days is being recorded.

A day after an off-duty Los Angeles police officer fired his gun during a confrontation with a group of teenagers in Anaheim, videos purportedly showing the encounter spread online, prompting questions about the officer’s actions.

No one was injured by the gunfire, but the footage — posted on YouTube and Facebook — sparked a flurry of phone calls and emails to Anaheim police, who are investigating the officer’s actions.

On Wednesday night, about 300 demonstrators took to the streets of Anaheim to protest the case. The marchers began in the west Anaheim neighborhood where the shooting occurred and eventually moved into major streets.

The group took over several lanes of Euclid Avenue, at times blocking intersections. Anaheim police, who are on tactical alert, had set up a protest line near Ball Road and Euclid Street to try to contain the crowd.



Don't argue with this goat. Really, don't bother!
