.Who shot the house down my block?
.Wesley or Whitefield
NOTE- Those of you who have followed the site for a while realize that I ‘get mad’ [every so often] on video.
For many years [20?] I heard lots of stories from guys on the streets- about cops. To be honest- I thought they were lying.
Because lots of the stuff- planting evidence- targeting people- beating guys up [not during arrests- but simply mugging them] sounded- if you will ‘too good- or bad- to be true’.
Then I realized the guys were not lying.
That’s what ‘set me off’.
As a firefighter- who also was a supervisor- for 25 years- we also had firefighters who were ‘not good’- meaning they abused injury leave- maybe lied about how long it took to get to the fire.
I realized- at one point- that the supervisors- of CCPD- knew some officers were doing ‘bad stuff’- and they apologized to the guys that bad stuff was done to [supervisors saying ‘we promise he will never do it again’].
And yet- the cop did do it again.
So- from my perspective- I saw that it was a real problem- that the Chief- or other supervisors- could not stop.
But they should have fired the cop- or at least disciplined the guy.
That’s what set me off.
I personally emailed Chief Simpson – before he died- saying ‘I think there’s a problem with a cop here in the Bluff- just wanted to give you a heads up’.
Ok- I’m sure Chief Simpson spoke to the cop.
About a week later the cop tried to run me off the Oso Bridge!
Look- I don’t play ‘that game’ and that’s why you have seen me ‘go off’ at times.
I add this link for one reason http://www.kztv10.com/story/31972994/california-police-sexual-misconduct-probe-sparked-by-suicide
This past week we have had a couple of police videos go ‘viral’- one was an officer throwing a football with some kids https://ccpdblotter.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/ccpd-football-buc-parade.jpg at Cole park- it was fine- good.
Then we had one of an officer playing hoops with some kids http://www.kztv10.com/story/31968644/ccpd-officer-plays-basketball-with-a-group-of-kids - good- I liked that- nothing wrong with it.
Police depts. across the country feel like they are ‘under siege’- that’s a fact.
Now- why the link to the cop who killed himself?
The MAIN problem is the reality that civilian police departments- while the majority of the cops are indeed good men- the departments themselves are unable to deal with criminal activity- being committed by on duty officers.
That’s the real problem- that’s why you have seen me blog on this stuff.
That’s what I want you to see on the article of the officer- and sadly- his wife- who both committed suicide because he was being investigated.
The many videos we have seen the last few years [Slager- etc.] show that many of the unjustified killings were covered up- at the highest level [Chicago- Mayor Rahm Emmanuel- etc.]
It’s not that every cop is corrupt- corruption is in the hiding of criminal acts- by the departments themselves.
In many of the shootings- the other officers all lied on the reports- until video surfaced.
The problem is the departments are unable to ‘police’ themselves.
Sometimes it’s because of union protections- political reasons that the average citizen has no idea is going on.
Many Black people have complained for years about this- and they were right- the majority of the time.
So- I’m glad the CCPD is doing the community outreach stuff- that’s good.
But the problem is- many departments are unable to deal with their own men- and that’s what you see in the above link.
Those of you who have watched the videos know I thought this kid was ‘framed’ from the start.
I watched the trial when it happened- and this was the case where another kid- facing court himself- blurted out ‘they want me to frame Gaytan’ – as unbelievable as this sounds- this happened.
It was reported in our local paper at the time.
Then- as I watched the case- during trial it came out that both the car-and the gun- were not the car- and gun- that were used in the killing.
Yet- I found it amazing that a jury still convicted him.
Just a couple of weeks ago this case has been sent back to the DA- by a higher court- basically saying ‘what in the hell are you doing down there!’
The Caller Times article showed how the cops got the key witness to lie.
As I thought about what happened here- I’m gonna put the best ‘spin’ on it- best meaning I’ll give the CCPD and DA the benefit of the doubt.
I think they were obviously under pressure to solve the case- and during their investigation others told them that Gaytan was out that night- had a gun- etc. which just so happened to be true.
At that point- the cops/DA must have thought ‘yup- it’s him’.
That’s probably why they told the key witness ‘we know who it is- we need you to I.D. him’.
Now- I’m sure the cops/DA realized as they investigated the case- that both the gun- and the car Gaytan used- were not the ones used at the crime.
Then why go ahead and try him?
At that point they already convinced Valent to- quote- ID him.
And it would look bad to ‘turn back now’.
But that’s what they should have done- they sent this kid to life in prison- with false evidence.
They knew- at least at the time of the conviction- and they still did it.
Now- that’s corruption- pure and simple.
And in our city- I commend the Caller times- and local media for revealing this stuff.
The problem has reached a tipping point- and I believe the Feds need to come in- and do something
UPDATE- I just read a news story ‘Hernandez gets 5 years’ probation- for shooting at local cops’.
Last year the cops were called to a scene- a man firing a gun.
Hernandez claimed he did not know the people he shot at were cops [maybe so?]
The prosecutors wanted to charge him with attempted murder of a peace officer- which could have been a life sentence.
The jury convicted him of a lesser charge- and took 7 minutes [SEVEN] to give him probation.
The prosecutors had no comment.
Why did this happen?
Over the past 5 years there have been untold stories- in the media- of prosecutorial misconduct- cases getting overturned- doctors saying the DA has lied about their testimony.
Prosecutors admitting they did wrong- coming out in public and admitting they broke the law [Hannah Overton case- medical examiner in Hayden case- and witnesses in Gaytan case- etc.]- on and on.
I think this shocking outcome- probation- might be a sort of O.J. verdict.
Where many have seen other ‘rigged’ convictions- and used this case to send a message.
Obviously- 7 minutes to give probation to someone who shot at cops- is problematic.
I never advocate for people- who actually shoot at cops- to get probation.
But the public has seen all that you have seen me talk about- and said ‘we have had enough’.

Judges 6:25 And it came to pass the same night, that the LORD said unto him, Take thy father's young bullock, even the second bullock of seven years old, and throw down the altar of Baal that thy father hath, and cut down the grove that is by it:
Judges 6:26 And build an altar unto the LORD thy God upon the top of this rock, in the ordered place, and take the second bullock, and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the grove which thou shalt cut down.
Judges 6:27 Then Gideon took ten men of his servants, and did as the LORD had said unto him: and so it was, because he feared his father's household, and the men of the city, that he could not do it by day, that he did it by night.

Judges 6:37 Behold, I will put a fleece of wool in the floor; and if the dew be on the fleece only, and it be dry upon all the earth beside, then shall I know that thou wilt save Israel by mine hand, as thou hast said.
Judges 6:38 And it was so: for he rose up early on the morrow, and thrust the fleece together, and wringed the dew out of the fleece, a bowl full of water.
Judges 6:39 And Gideon said unto God, Let not thine anger be hot against me, and I will speak but this once: let me prove, I pray thee, but this once with the fleece; let it now be dry only upon the fleece, and upon all the ground let there be dew.
Judges 6:40 And God did so that night: for it was dry upon the fleece only, and there was dew on all the ground.
12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.
For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power. 1Cor 4:20
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Mi. 6:8
