    Thanks for the updates Fred. I offer best wishes to all involved up there on this one. What a suck way to spend the holdiays - looking over your shoulder wondering if your "Elected Politicians" (if I may use that phrase?) are going to cover your back when you need it most. Gotta love it when the "Boss" says Ya, go out there and do your jobs, men. Just dont arrest or shoot anyone. Ok? {Ya right, thanks Chief.}

    As to the Judge,he's sawed off little runt that has no concept of self defense or anything pertaining to firearms.Thus,he is beneath my contempt.

    In a way,I cannot wait until the Democrats take their newly ordained offices and learn the truth about whether or not the US has been running secret prisons in other countries to torture POWs from Afghanistan and Iraq.
    Somehow I doubt that we are unless there's a lot of intelligence services too stupid to find out about it.
    Another wonder is would they bray it to the Heavens if they did learn we were or would they keep it a secret for later revelation?

    An article from Sun. NY Post by,

    Adam Brodsky
    City Councilwoman Heleh Foster says, point blank, that Sean Bell's death was a "racist act." Councilman Al Vann bemoans "institutional racism." Councilman Barron, taking the prize for recklessness, insists blacks "are being murdered," by cops. What repugnant lies.
    Racism almost certainly was not a factor in the tragic gunfire that left the 23-year old groom dead. But race definitely was.
    Start with the fact that every cop surely knows; While the victim of an accidental police shooting is likely to be black, so too is the perp when cops are killed.
    Of 21 NYPD officers shot to death in the line of duty since 19914, police records show that 14 (67%) were killed by African Americans, four (19( percent by Hispanics and three ( 14 percent by whites. (In one other case the killers included one Black and five Hispanics.)
    And yes NY cops do confront blacks more than they do whites. But thats because blacks are disproportionately involved in crime- both as perps and victims.
    Even the Rev. Jesse Jackson admitted that in walking city streets, he worries more about groups of black youths than white ones.
    Two decades ago, then Police Comm. Ben Ward- who was black- made the point more bluntly(even citing the very area where Bell was killed): Young , black men,Ward said are ripping off the neighborhoods. They are doing the shooting out in southeast Queens and killing innocent people.
    Crime's way down since then but the racial breakdowns haven't changed much. African Americans, about 25% ofNew Yorkers, account for 60 % of the city's crime victims so far this year, an NYPD analysis last month. And more than 60% pf perpetrators in murder cases were black (93% were male.)
    For each of the past three years, NYPD records show, nine of every 10 crime victims citywide were either African Americans or Hispanic.
    So were a similar percentage of perps.
    With police responding to more crimes involving blacks, there are more opportunities for police abuse of blacks-including (rare) accidental shootings.
    (Again, blacks also benefit disproportionately when cops do their jobs; the vast drop in New York City homicides over the past decade has saved the lives of mostlt blacks and minotities.)
    Lets face it: To fight crime,cops must go to the areas where it occurs. A disproportionate number of police operations, like responding to calls, take place in minority communities.
    The Kalua Cabaret, for instance, where the Bell tragedy started, is in a largely black neighborhood,- and is heavily patronized by blacks. NYPD officials note that cops were called to the scene 26 times in the past 12 months.
    Persumably, most of the calls were black.
    The point is that if cops are going to protect the city- if they are going to respond to calls from blacks as well as whites-then inevitably they are going to come into contact with more African Americans than with other folks
    And greater contact breeds greater potential for conflict- and for tragedies, like that of Sean Bell-even as blacks also gain from the crime averted.
    How unfortunate that racial activists mislead folks about the resons for confrontations-insisting that police actions are often not just ill-motivated, but illegal.
    If black leaders really want to cut down on wrongful killings in their community, one idea might be to focus more on stanching crime.
    Steering more young black men into legal, productive lives would not only give these youths more hopeful futures, it would also reduce the number of interactions with cops and, thus, the opportunities for disaster.
    Of course, curbing crime means helping cops- not attacking them.
    A first step mighht be to stop calling them "murderers."
