MARATHON WEEK

It's Marathon week in NYC. Who's running? Over the years the REGJB has been well represented in NYC.

We're not really sure who or what a "Kim Khardashian" is. Can someone explain this to us?

Occupy Oakland has turned into burn Oakland. The question is whether that is good or bad?
We mean, it's Oakland after all. There's no "there" there.

Ivan Fernandez Investiture at the 3rd DCA Friday at 3pm.

Bill Altfield Investiture at the Dade County Courthouse Friday at Noon. We received several emails informing us that everyone is invited to attend.

There was a disturbance at the Dolphins training facility yesterday. Several members of the offense were late for team meetings and were stuck in the team's parking lot.

Turns out they had trouble crossing the white line in the parking lot because it looked awfully similar to the goal line.

Remember the wardrobe malfunction of Janet Jackson at the Super Bowl in 2004? The litigation over fines to TV stations continues. The Third Circuit struck down a 500K fine 2-1.
It's comforting to know that in these troubled times when over 35 million Americans are on some form of government assistance that law firms and courts are devoting so much time to an exposure of a female breast for 9/16th of a second.

American Exceptionalism.

See You In Court.

Instead of a football suicide pool lets have a weekly over/under of how many Dade officers get arrested every week. I'll start the over at 5. And to add a teaser; let's see how many are cleared. I'll start with 100% every time

I think we should just have a suicide pool. First prick to off himself wins.

My hope is for Trialmaster to win this week.

Already heading towards the over ( if we include Broward) two cops, koepke and dodge turned themselves in for filing false police reports ( planting drugs, stealing money). This time they got caught on video. Suckers. Of course, even they are caught on video, they are suspended with pay, 75k.

Certainly it will come out that the video is doctored. Or will satz just let a jury sort it out.

I'm rather insulted that these thieves are pulling 75k post arrest where the video is absolutely in contraction to the a form. Look for the Brady notices and start filing speedies. Id love to cross these pricks.

Hope they get at least 20.

And Noriega steps down as chief of MBPD; clearly that department couldn't get any worse, can it?

FDLE arrests a cop for soliciting bribes. See fdle website

Interesting how the fraternal order of police called the FHP trooper reckless; yet mentions nothing of the recklessness actions of an off duty cop doing 120 ( a criminal offense) to get to a private job in a county car

She did her job fine. The dangerous cop using his work car for personal use fleeing a trooper is reckless. Why can't the police ever admit when one of their own makes a mistake. The community would be safer and have trust in the police if they weren't such liars.

In the mean time, when jury trials come to police credibility the defendant is usually acquitted ( even if he's guilty as hell ) bc of the daily news stories of crooked cops. What a shame

I love the fact that a trooper does the right thing and pulls over a reckless cop who was abusing the badge and endangering innocent people, and the trooper is the one who is getting the most heat for the incident.

Apparently City of Miami officers are upset that their colleague was "treated like a criminal". I pose the following question to those critics: Were his actions not "criminal"? Moreover, how would they have treated a civilian who acted in the same manner (i.e., driving recklessly at 120 mph and failing to pull over when instructed)? That civilian would've been approached at gunpoint, AND he would've gotten his ass kicked by at least 2 or 3 cops.

I understand the need to stand by your brothers, but don't complain about a lack of respect for the badge when those in uniform act as the City of Miami PD has acted in this case. Respect is a two way street...

Have you ever seen an off duty cop actually driving anything near the speed limit?

TEAM TROOPER FTW

I have a score of A-forms from over the years where my clients get an ass-kicking and a ride to TGK for less than the MPD cop did.

What " professional courtesy" does FOP/PBA think the cop deserved? An apology from the Trooper for doing her job? Cop is lucky to have gotten just an RD and a PTA.

Show some respect.

Not sure I understand ? Which set of cops are beating up yur client? Fhp? Miami dade? Homestead?

Fake blecher said...

Can we get some verification and see if the great one himself has posted???

Blecher trackers said...

We're trying to pull the ISP address and see if there's a signal we can triangulate. At best we can give a percentage after a few hours of analysis.

Blecher trackers said...

Based on all available data, including speech patterns, it's 59.4% that was the real Bleacher. Sorry can't be more positive. Too many unsolved variables.
