Donald Trump – Destroying the US one day at a time

Surviving the sexist, bigot, racist US Presidency

I keep seeing headlines about how to survive Donald Trump’s presidency, they offer helpful suggestions and tips on how to cope with the ineptitude of anything Trump says, true or not.

The reality is that it is a guarantee that whenever Trump opens his mouth or tweets what he considers facts and statistics, over half are inaccurate and in most cases just outright bullshit.

He does it to get attention because like any other attention whore, he can’t get through a day without all eyes being on him so he will go above and beyond in an effort to accomplish that.

At any rate, the one thing that I will give him huge kudos for is that he black’s out the media. He is literally waging war on the Media and I like that.

He is correct when he says that the media is biased so in most cases Trump will spat out utter garbage filled with untrue facts and the like, I will give him credit with the media because he has not said anything about the mainstream media that has been incorrect.

Aside from all of that, surviving Donald Trump is easy without the super not helpful tips I keep seeing the mainstream media come up with.

Realize that movements and things are happening all over the US in an effort to get Trump out of office.

These things take time so they do not happen overnight, trust in the fact that we because I am part of many of those said movements, we notice everything Trump does and says.  

And we are not giving up.

Power is always in the masses, power is in the numbers and every single day, more and more people join the fight and the good news is, we have found our voices and we are using them.

In the meantime you never know, the way that Trump tends to go off at the hip and run his mouth or tweet like he does, he may end up making one pretty big mistake and get himself out of office long before his 4 years is up.

We do not want or need a monster or rather a hateful little, racist, sexist, bigot serving as President of the United States, we need a forward thinker and it’s pretty clear that Donald Trump is not that nor does he appear to be on anyone’s side but his own. 

You cannot move forward if you keep going backwards.

Donald Trump and his dream team say goodbye – To Michael Flynn

michael-flynn-crimeshop

Not much to say on this one, Michael Flynn reportedly mislead the white house with regard to talks with Russia…

“I inadvertently briefed the Vice President-elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian ambassador. I have sincerely apologized to the President and the Vice President, and they have accepted my apology,” Flynn wrote according to a copy of his resignation letter.

Which is really, in all reality just a pretty way of saying he lied, point blank.

It’s like watching a car wreck in slow motion, the faster they go the more destructive the crash, which I find rather amusing right now.

Pacemaker implicates man in arson

pacemaker-crimeshop

Middletown, Ohio – Arson – Pacemaker

For anyone who has a pacemaker and who might be thinking about committing some sort of crime in relation to an arson or something, you might want to think twice because as it turns out, your pacemaker might just implicate you in the crime.

ross-compton-crimeshop

In Middletown, Ohio Mr. Ross Compton was indicted on both arson and insurance fraud charges

after police had a little look at the data that was collected from his pacemaker, as well as you know other evidence that would prove arson.

As it turns out, Ross lied about the fire that consumed his home and because of his pacemaker police were effectively able to file charges against him.

The reason that police were somewhat suspicious; Ross told the police he had noticed a fire had broken out in his home, so naturally he went about packing himself some bags, broke out a window with his cane, tossed his goods out the window and then got out of the home himself then loaded up his car. He also told the police that he had an artificial heart.

Somewhat weary of Ross’s story police obtained a warrant for his pacemaker data and were surprised by the findings which they say just so happens to be key evidence.

The data that was reviewed by the police from the night of the fire according to a cardiologist who reviewed it said that it was “highly improbable” that Ross had hurriedly packed some bags, busted out a window, tossed the bags out, and loaded his car within the said time-frame of the fire and his great escape from said fire. 

Pacemaker aside, what really gave the case away was the fact that police found traces of gasoline on Ross’s clothing and shoes.

What’s more is that oddly civil rights advocates are concerned about the use of medical data like what you would find from a pacemaker, in a court case.

They are arguing that people should not have to choose between privacy like committing arson or something and health.

FBI will not longer accept FOIA requests beginning 3/1

fbi-crimeshop

Federal Bureau of Investigation – Freedom of Information Act

I recently read an article about the FBI’s decision to change up requests that are sent under the Freedom of Information Act. They are changing the way information can be obtained from them from email to a form fill starting 3/1/17.

Part of the form is that you now must include things like a physical address. That doesn’t shock me at all, what shocked me was the response to that. Some are in a bit of a tizzy over it which I cannot for some reason understand.

foia-crimeshop

FOIA gives the the right to obtain information from the Federal Government but it never said anywhere that I can or should remain anonymous. Some are actually asserting that because of the new reform it will make it harder or more difficult for people to request information from the FBI?!?!?!

I am sorry but I really think that argument needs validation because it is really bloody pathetic. If anyone wants information from the FBI under the FOIA they should let the FBI know who they are and where they are.

I just fail to see the argument altogether on this one. If you want transparency, so should you too, be just as transparent.

Would it not be the pot calling the kettle black if the FBI under the same token refrained from providing information because whomever was asking was hiding behind an email address and refused to honestly tell them who they are, where they can be found?

I mean the FBI freely publishes all of it’s office addresses online for everyone to see and visit if we felt the need. So if you want something from them why not include an address so they too can visit you?

Besides, businesses in the private industry have been doing this for years. They want more than just an email address from people who contact them.

So why is that we don’t seem to have a problem with handing information over to a business someone we know next nothing about?

You do not have to answer that, it was completely rhetorical.

The point is, the FBI has a right to know who is requesting information from them just as much as we have a right to know what they have in certain cases.

No one has a right to hide behind an email address.

I am for this change as long as they don’t give anything to NSA who has a habit of letting anything just walk out its front door via contracted employees.

Chicago 352 shot – in the killing game

chicago violence-crimeshop.jpg

America at a loss over Chicago’s killing game

It’s been awhile since looking at the numbers so here goes:

So far 352 individuals have been shot in Chicago this year, of that 295 have been shot and wounded, with 57 individuals having been shot and killed. And as always a huge shout out to http://heyjackass.com/ for putting these numbers together on what seems like an hourly basis.

President Donald Trump-CrimeShop.jpg

President Donald Trump has vowed to do something about the violence in Chicago but the reality is still that if you read my last bit about Chicago, this is Atypical of the history in Chicago.

They have a growing upward tick of crime, then years later they bask in the sunlight of decreasing homicides and violence throughout the city, before they start to see that gut wrenching upward tick in crime again.

So what is the problem? Overall, several experts, including myself have studied it, it’s not isolated to just one issue it is several issues. It always has been several.

The problem with trying to fix a broken and wounded Chicago is that it is going to take a hell of a lot more than just sending in the Fed’s or the The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives who said on Saturday that they were considering sending in more agents to help Chicago fight the uptick in shootings.

At the end of the day, that may or may not help because Chicago’s problems are several and not simply just one or two. With Chicago you also have the issue with it’s cops, who have a history of being way out of line in terms of police misconduct.

You add that to a group of young men and women who already feel that they have no other options, that they are held down by the man, they have no jobs, they have no money…it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out the what, why and how the violence has been on this upward tick.

The vow to send in Federal Agents to clean it up, well that is the band-aid and it’s not going to last in the long term, plain and simple.

While I find President Donald Trump’s idea of wanting to put an end to the violence in Chicago sincere and honest, I do not believe that he is going about it in the right way.

Because Chicago has always faced issues with increases and decreases in violence, to get her fixed and fixed for the long term, one would have to really sit down and understand the issues Chicago has had throughout it’s long and torrid history through today.

So what can the Fed’s do now?

Nothing really, because whatever they end up doing will only be on the surface and that’s if they can get anywhere near the violence, meaning put a dent in it.

At this juncture until we can get into Chicago and start fixing the root of the issues, we will continue to see this increase and decrease in crime for next decade and well beyond that.

But let’s give a huge round of applause to President Trump for managing to promise to do something about the violence, without bothering to have the wherewithal to understand why it’s happening.

Bravo, President Trump, Bravo.

Police getting help combating mental health issues

Mental-health-crimeshop.jpg

Mobile Technology to combat mental illness 

Police are not mental health care providers, they are not therapists, counselors nor are they psychiatrists. Because they are not mental health care providers it makes it difficult to work with someone who has a mental health issue.

People across the nation have begged police to come up with better ways to work with individuals that have mental health issues.

mental-health-crimeshop

Police in Bartlesville, Oklahoma have taken that challenge and are doing just that by utilizing technology to put individuals in touch with help when they need it.

They have teamed up with mental health specialists to bring quick access to therapists which sometimes does in fact help prevent a trip to the hospital.

A trip that the individual might not be able to afford or they simply do not truly need, because normally police would have to take someone into protective custody.  

The way it works is that the person is given a choice to voluntarily accept help, he or she is connected to a therapist, RN or a recovery support specialist right away through an iPad that police carry with them and the service is available 24/7.

Mental health is very much a critical issue that police must deal with in today’s world. They must learn to work with those with mental health issues regardless of not being mental health care providers.

Utilizing technology as a way to bring help to those in need of mental health care rather than take them into protective custody is a very smart way of combating issues regarding mental health.

Sometimes all an individual really needs in the moment is just someone to talk to and more often than not when an individual is at a breaking point having just that one simple conversation can make all the difference in the world.

On the flip side of that the ability to have a therapist see and speak with an individual can really help police determine whether or not that individual is potentially in need of a visit to the hospital.

Mental health issues while difficult for police at times are a reality that they must deal with.

By using technology and bringing help to people is a very smart move on the part of police in Bartlesville, Oklahoma.

In the end it could turn that it serves to actually save lives in the long run for those who have to battle his or her own mind on a daily basis.
