How do we stop the madness that is happening in our world?

Well. that is a great question! I am not an expert on the subject but I am going to give you my idea and a word of advice (take it or leave it), and as I said (repeated), I am not an expert, and I am not a bible thumper , as some of you will say, However, I believe that for the madness to go away, we as people need to revert, that means go back and look, read in the New King James version, we read that God created the heavens and the earth, man and woman and all the creatures of the earth and he said all is good, He created the soil and seeds of every kind to be planted. When he created beast and birds and other creatures, he spoke for them to go out and multiply so that the earth would be filled, and he gave that same message to man and woman,
Now, I don’t recall where he said go out and buy guns that man created and destroy the beast, and/or man. I do remember him saying do not have false Gods because those with false Gods will suffer (and they have or will be soon). Every person that has greed and gathers gold and other objects to worship should go back and read what happens to those that went against his word and worshiped false gods and objects.
OK, so you are tired of me speaking to you about what we have done wrong so, how do we fix it?
My suggestion (and it is simply that, a suggestion), Our law makers in Washington and in cities, counties and States, should write laws that do not allow anyone to own a weapon that is made for war, such as the multi-cartridge, high capacity magazine or allow rifles of any sort to be carried uncased, slung over the shoulder, or visible as being pointed at any person or thing within city limits. If this person or person(s) is found to be doing so, they should be arrested and a high fine and prison time should be assed. If they actually commit a crime where they actually use the weapon and destroys a person or thing that God himself created (which is all things) then they should be sent to be judged by their peers (a jury) and punished for their crime(s).
Will this stop the madness in the world? I don’t think so!
So, I say we allow open carry of pistols by everyone over 21 years old and if we have shoot outs in the streets, there should be law (police to remove the persons and weapons from the streets and the persons should be judged and punished with extremely high fines, placed in solitary confinement and reminded daily of Gods will (that all things should go out and multiply and prosper), not kill every thing just because you have a gun!
Now, I carry a gun, and I am retired military and retired law enforcement. I am well trained on my weapon and I have had many years of repeated words pushed at me from military leaders, Police Chiefs, Pastors, and my wife that informed me to carry and use this weapon only, and again I say Only, when it is absolutely necessary to protect life. I believe that a law should be written that allows all police officers to open carry in every State in the United States and be authorized to protect the laws of every State, when traveling (if needed) and when there is a threat or fear for his/her safety or their family.
Will this stop the madness? No, at least I don’t think so!
What I think (again my own personal opinion) is when we as a world gain our morals and beliefs back that we can love one another, regardless of race, creed, religion, or color. Then maybe we can stop the madness.
As a retired Chief of Police, I have seen many disturbed persons (drunk or sober) act out, but they were unarmed, mostly, and the ones armed with other weapons other than guns, I talked to them and was able to get their weapon and arrest them with out incident.
This part is going to start a fire and or some backlash on me, but I’m a “big boyyyy,” as one of my best retired police friends (Mikey, my brother from another mother, but we love the same grandmother) you know who you are, would say! Okay, first, Chiefs need to start being leaders and not friends, young police officers need to stop being John Wayne imitators, getting out of their cars and putting their hands on their weapons or even drawing their weapons when there is no threat present. Also, Stop being scared of people because they are a different color or race than you. Get to know your communities, get out of your patrol car and show your communities that you patrol that you are there for and with them. Stop the drug dealers, pimps, prostitutes, and others from soliciting on street corners. We used to stand on street corners within the neighborhood and sing (copying the Tempting Temptations), there was no Star Search, American Idol, or Voice back in those days, darn we missed out because we could sing, at least in our hearing (but don’t ask the neighbors). I grew up in Atlanta Georgia in the 1950s, and 60s, and I could walk from the North side of the city to the West side and never got shot. I got beat up a couple of times but I was a scrapper so, don’t feel bad for me because I gave as good as I got, even if I lost.
Come on world, WAKE UP! Love one another, get the drugs off the street, Cops stop being afraid and be mister friendly to everyone you see or stop. Barney Fife never had to draw his gun and he only carried one bullet, when Andy didn’t have it in his pocket! Get the drugs away from our children! Protect our schools, and don’t hide from an active shooter, go get them! Think about this, Pimps used to move the dope pushers off their corners so that their girls could work! We don’t want that again, because we want our society to be clean of all bad things such as that! I believe in the Christian Church and I’m not asking you to, I’ve been Baptized and received God’s blessing. Yes, I have been a backslider and forgot where I was from and what I believed for about 10 years and believe me I was lost! However, I found my faith and came back to the storehouse to receive the meat that will get me through. I have a great teacher, Pastor, and friend at my new storehouse, and the congregation is also my family and supports and guides me.
Let’s get our morals back, take our streets back, eat meals together, and pray, thanking God for what we have , especially since he created it. Okay, some of you believe that God didn’t do all this and I will not go against your beliefs but I will stick to mine!
Thanks for listening/reading my Blog rant at 4am in the morning.

Let’s train our officers in areas needed to eliminate fear of going into any area during an active shooter incident. Let’s train in Ethics, policy and procedure, standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), and last but not least, training in cuffing or making a safe arrest, and keeping the public safe. We can visit other areas of note such as: traffic stops and approaching the stopped vehicle and backing up other officers while they are on a suspicious vehicle with multiple occupants.

Ethics/Scruples/Manners/Behavior

When I refer to ethics, I am not only referring to police ethics, I am speaking of ethics across the board, everyone. Recently I watched as police officers were asked to leave a coffe house because a customer felt unsafe (supposedly), and although the normal reaction to most people is to smile and be grateful that police are present so that bad behavior does not spark up while they are in the business.
So, what are they afraid of? Would the person that felt uncomfortable with the presence of police in the business, rather have gang members, or mafia members, or some other criminal element present instead? If for some reason the police are commiting a crime in your presence and you are able to film it on that iphone or android that you stay on 24/7, film it for evidence and turn it over to the District Attorney or if you trust the State Police, or County Sheriff, turn it over to them with a written statement.
All police are not bad! Let’s look at our society as a whole in 2018/19 so far, there are very high paid acctresses and actors behaing unethical, there are preachers and teachers, doing the same, there are CEOs, COO, and down the line all kinds of supposedly supervisors acting out in unetical ways.
An Actor/Comedian named Nipsey Russell used to have a saying “The devil made me do it”! Well, I don’t think that our behavior is a part of the devils way, because he would create alot more turmoil, and if things keep going as they are today, I may have to change my thoughts and go with Nipsey!
How do we correct this nonsense? Comment.

2019 Can be the best year for learning about other Cultures and training to be better at what we do and at who we are as Americans!

As we have celebrated the 4th of July this year, I believe that some of us started thinking about why this Country is called the “Land of the Free,” and “The Home of the Brave.”!
Our politicians are still debating about the Land of the free, becausethey are charging each other with accussations that we are no longer a free nation and our borders are not to be crossed bu just anyone, especially if their skin color and culture is not the same as ours.

The subjects that the politicians and some company executives/managers are talking about is something that has been a sore spot with me for many many years.
Now, the first horrific thing that our famous administration in office today has accomplished to show that we have a long way to go in cultural/diversity learning is the bad act of throwing away our counterparts/friends at the United Nations, then estabilsing tariffs on countries that aewe have had free trade with for so many years, and our economy did not suffer a blow, to add devastation to already turmoil, our elustrious leaders have estabished what some people call “Concentration Camps” at the Southern borders of our country to hold immigrants fleeing their own country to come to America for a free society, but are met with visious dogs, Border Patrol Agents that are not very trained in diversity or human compassion, and makeshift cells that are unclean and unsanitary (quote fron a politician visiting the border facilities).
So! What do we do? For the answer to this question and many more, take a look around you and see how many friends you have. If you find that all of your so called friends are the same race/culture/politicalbelief or they are the same as you in many ways. Then you need to either hit the rest button on your progress or leave it as is and don/t bother getting to know anyone of a different background Then email me and we can establish a date and time to meet and discuss training for you and your staff and friends if necessary. Please, Please, Comment! I need the feedback!
Thanks!

4th Amendment, Section 14141, violations

Well, I am going to edit this post since it has been up for over 10 months without a single comment! The original post starts here and I will add comments below. You bet there has been a few violations of the 4th Amendment by police and their departments across the U.S. and you can bet your sweet bippy that there has been as many violent attacks against the men and women in police uniforms.

This does not give rights to the police departments across our great nation to violate the rights of our citizens, and it sure as all get up, doesn’t give our citizens the right to go out and beat a cop down or kill an officer.

I personnally lost a friend that was a Chief of Police that had a bad habit for small town cops. He would sit in the same place every day and eat his lunch in his patrol car. As he enjoyed his meal, locals would pass by and say hello or wave at him. This became habit! One day he was sitting there and a local fellow that he knew as a good ole boy walked up from behind his patrol car and the Chief didn’t think nothing of it, because this fellow had walked past himmany days before over the years. One thing changed this day. The guy walked up from behind the patrol car, pulled an automatic weapon, and began firing into the Chiefs car, emptying the clip in his weapon. Who was at fault for this deadly act? Was it the local good ole dude that passed by the Chief every day (by the way, he had been in and out of jail for drunk in public, and other misdemeanor charges, and the Chief had let him off with warnings many times in the past). Was it the Chief’s fault for sitting in the same spot every day and not being more careful/observant while in lunch mode? Think about it, should the Chief have known? Hmmm!

We are in desperate times across America with everyone pointing fingers at someone else. We have schools being shot up by young men that are supposedly mentally incapable of understanding what they are doing. (Hog Wash)

The Department of Justice (DOJ), started tracking the Use of Force by police departments across the U.S., collecting data at the beginning of (2018) on police shootings and other violent encounters when they come in contact with the public, and after protests and investigations. This investigation is due to data collected since 2014 due to deadly episodes. The DOJ is trying to fill a gap or loss in information released or available to the public about police shootings, beatings, or other violent acts.

In April 2014 the DOJ basically told the Chief of Albuquerque, Police Department (APD)that the DOJ had concluded that the APD had definitely used excessive force and violated the rights (4th Amendment) by engaging in bad practices. They concluded that the bad practices was due to insufficient oversight of the City, a lack of training or insufficient training of police officers, and bad practices with an overall lack of policy. The DOJ concluded that APD had to change the culture of the department to correct these violations. It is apparent today that APD has changed their culture because DOJ is no longer briefing the Chief about bad behavior. I am sure that I could do the same thing DOJ officials did and find some officer(s) that may be a bit rough with their apprehension of violent offenders. However, I can also provide training to the department that would supress or stop the unwanted behavior in as much as a week!

Opinions and/or comments are welcome, because this is what I think! The DOJ can conduct their investigation on every P.D. in the country large or small and will come out with different results due to the culture of the City, not necessarily

Does your company, workplace, department, municipality, county , State personnel meet and exceed all of your core values and training needs, and are they all acting ethical in day to day operations?

CEOs, CFOs, HR Managers, Chief of Police, Sheriffs, Mayors, County Commissioners, ask yourself this question? Are the personnel meeting the needs, reaching the goals set, identifying problem areas, correcting problem areas, and when was the last company/department wide analysis of personnel for ethical behavior and knowing as well as following policy and procedure guidance. Are personnel promoting a positive outlook for you department/company? If you are an international company, are personnel promoting positive outlooks and goals for your international business?

Although a large number of business and municipalities, counties, and State Departments have in house trainers, are they providing enough training to prevent accidental shootings, curve Active Shooter incidents in local schools, Cutting or preventing sexual harassment in the workplace, or learning that diversity makes a company stronger, learning different cultural behaviors and training in other areas that will make your company better. if you answer, “I don’t know” or you ask the in house trainer(s) and they say yes but you haven’t seen documentation to the fact, I recommend that you prepare to pay out money from your already stretched budget for lawsuits, and Lawyers, or send me a message on Linked In or an email at: wallcoen208@hotmail.com and we can consider a day and time that will be convenient for both of us to meet at your location and discuss the possibility of me returning after our meeting and provide a presentation/training in just about any area that your personnel are lacking.

Too Many Police Die from 911 Calls and routine patrols!

Already ! In 2018 we have lost brothers in Blue to a lack of respect for law enforcement.

I would say that it only exists in America but I am positive the lack of respect for law enforcement is across the globe.

The only thing I know that would bring back the respect is refresher training on a number of things that is trained in some academy’s across America. However, I am a person that has researched some departments training and I am sure that the following items are on the back burner or slow track when it comes to training:

Approaching a traffic stop, cautious at all times!

Being 911 dispatched to any call, Domestic especially!

Responding to calls received in the office or patrol room or police clerk!

Taking control of any situation, using the “Use of Force and Level of Force” listed in your Policy and Procedure Manual! (If it’s not in there I suggest that become a priority.)

Being aware of your surroundings at all times! If you are taking a break from patrolling or stopping to have lunch in your vehicle, keep your head on a swivel! ( We lost officers that were sitting in their patrol cars)

I am in no way trying to step over training that was received at your local or State level Police Academy. I am a paid Consultant and would love to visit your PD, Sheriff Office, Rescue Squad, 911 Center, and/or City Hall and discuss areas listed above and analyze your Policy and Procedures, Rules and Regulations for all personnel and discuss if training is needed. I have a tendency to call this training Auxiliary/Refresher Training because if an officer was not trained on these items in the Academy, they received the training from their Field Training Officer (hopefully).
