Questions About Police Community Support Officer

Like the two Community Support Officers, could you just stand there and watch a little boy drown?

I am having to pinch myself when I think about that event. If I was standing on a river bank and saw a little boy drowning, i don't care what role I might be trying to fulfill, i would take my shoes and socks off and dive in. Wouldn't you? They may have radiod for help, but there were two of them! Am I the only one who cannot get my head round this? Police officer, fireman, nurse, or ordinary Joe Public, does it matter who you are - surely you dive in? Don't you? I am very keen to hear from people on this.

What do Police find suspicious about a vital well-established liberty safeguarded by the First Amendment?

-Scottsdale Police http://www.copblock.org/24024/am-i-being-detained-2/ - Recording Police Officers and Public Officials As discussed in other areas of this Guide, a patchwork of state laws applies to recording the communications of others, including wiretapping and eavesdropping laws. These laws may impose liability for recording audio of a conversation without the consent of one or more parties, or for making secret audio recordings. However, First Amendment considerations arise when you are openly recording the activities of police officers (or other public officials) carrying out their duties in public places. A number of U.S. Courts of Appeals have held that, in such circumstances, the First Amendment protects the right to record audio and video regardless of whether the police/officials consent. This constitutional right would override any state or federal laws that would otherwise prohibit such recording. Currently, the following U.S. Courts of Appeals have recognized the F

What do you think As immigration enforcement takes hold, jobs begin to open up to less-skilled Americans ?

If this is to long skip it. Immigration hawks have been on a winning streak lately. An unprecedented surge of public outrage at the prospect of amnesty for illegal immigrants led to the defeat in June of the Senate immigration bill and the probable end of President Bush's dream for comprehensive immigration reform. And that was merely the latest in a series of victories for supporters of tighter controls, including the Real ID Act of 2005, the Secure Fence Act of 2006, proliferating enforcement efforts at the state and local levels and a new package of modest but meaningful enforcement measures announced last month by the Department of Homeland Security. What of the results? Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff told The Times that "there will be some unhappy consequences for the economy out of doing this." While the enforcement climate is still too new to show results in government data one way or the other, Chertoff's prediction doesn't appear to be playing out. On the contra

I’m an early-thirties girl in a serious, long-distance relationship with a late-thirties career Army officer. He would like us to get married. I’m pretty sure I’m going to say yes, and the larger part of me feels really good about this choice: I love him; we’re a really, really good fit – sexually, emotionally. We find each other hilarious, and we just really like each other. I want to have his babies. He’s excited about knocking me up. We have dovetailing thoughts on how marriage and parenthood ought to be approached.

Group organizes recall effort against Gordon Casey Newton The Arizona Republic Apr. 30, 2008 06:49 PM Anti-illegal-immigration activists will attempt to recall Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon for policies they say are too soft on those who enter the country illegally. A group calling itself American Citizens United, which includes members of organizations involved in recent anti-illegal-immigrant protests, filed paperwork Wednesday to create a political-action committee. "Phil Gordon has operated the Mayor's Office with malfeasance in refusing to execute his sworn oath of office," the group said in its filing. advertisement It accused Gordon of "disregarding the will of Phoenix citizens by refusing to allow the Phoenix Police Department to impartially enforce laws against violators of laws on illegal immigration and human smuggling."

Did You Know That People Who Disagree With UHC &...?

"Cap & Scam" are unruly mobs??? according to some senate and house democrats, they have cancelled "townhall meetings" during their recess because they fear for their safety... “I had felt they would be pointless,” Rep. Tim Bishop (D-N.Y.) told POLITICO, referring to his recent decision to temporarily suspend the events in his Long Island district. “There is no point in meeting with my constituents and [to] listen to them and have them listen to you if what is basically an unruly mob prevents you from having an intelligent conversation.” In Bishop’s case, his decision came on the heels of a June 22 event he held in Setauket, N.Y., in which protesters dominated the meeting by shouting criticisms at the congressman for his positions on energy policy, health care and the bailout of the auto industry. Bishop isn’t the only one confronted by boiling anger and rising incivility. At a health care town hall event in Syracuse, N.Y., earlier this month, police were called in to restore order
