"Police union criticizes proposed raise for city administrator

From The Journal Times.com:



"RACINE — The city’s police union has sent a letter to Mayor John Dickert expressing dismay over a proposed raise of more than 30 percent for City Administrator Tom Friedel.

"Under the mayor’s proposal, Friedel’s current annual salary of $99,237 would climb to $115,000 on July 13, and then to $130,000 on July 13, 2016.

“'In light of the "‘financial hardship’" that the city used last year to leverage an 8 percent reduction in the compensation of its police officers, we are at a loss as to how such an extraordinary increase can be justified now for an individual who was hired at a lower rate of pay back in (2009),' states Todd Hoover, a criminalist and Racine Police Association president, in the letter.

“'Your proposal has caused many RPA members to seriously question the city’s priorities, and has inspired a great deal of frustration amongst the men and women who risk their lives to keep our community safe.”

"Kung Fury is an over-the-top 80’s action comedy that was crowd funded through Kickstarter. It features Kung Fury, a Kung Fu renegade cop who travels back in time to kill his Nemesis, Hitler. The film features nazis, dinosaurs, vikings and cheesy one-liners.

"OAK CREEK — A community forum being held Saturday by the League of United Latin American Citizens of Wisconsin will include a panel workshop aimed at improving relations between minorities and law enforcement.

"Panelists will include longtime Racine activist Morris Reece, Denice Nelson, and Theonita Cox. The event is free and open to the public.

"Other topics being discussed during the forum, which runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., include education, health and immigration."

"Mayor proposes 30 percent salary hike for Friedel"

From The Journal Times.com:



"RACINE – City Administrator Tom Friedel would see his pay increase by 30 percent over two years under a contract extension proposed by Mayor John Dickert and Deputy City Attorney Scott Letteney

"Under the proposal, Friedel’s current annual salary of $99,237 would climb to $115,000 on July 13, 2015, and then to $130,000 on July 13, 2016.

"Making the pitch for the increase before the Finance and Personnel Committee on Tuesday, Letteney said Dickert said the reason for the request was two-fold: to put Friedel’s salary in line with city administrators in similar communities and to make the salary for the position competitive."

This is what you get when only 20% of the electorate votes.  Fuck them.

I believe that Dickert's very first official act in office was to appoint Tom Friedel (his cousin) to City Administrator, with a whopping salary and perks.  The Common Council was already cowed by Dickert and ratified the appointment.  They've been kissing Dickert's ass ever since.  It's all very reminiscent, on a small scale, of Austria and Germany in the 30's and 40's.

Ah,.....memories of rubber sidewalks.

"Cleveland Officer Michael Brelo Found Not Guilty in Car Hood Shooting"

By Elizabeth Chuck

"A Cleveland police officer has been found not guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the killing of two unarmed passengers whose car hood he mounted, sending a barrage of bullets into their windshield.

"Michael Brelo, 31, who is white, was charged with killing Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams — both of whom were black — after a car chase in November 2012. Brelo rubbed his face and nodded his head as the judge read the verdict, and then wept.

and I am all broken up inside

3/19/2003

and I am all broken up inside and I have always been broken up inside and most importantly I will always be broken up inside so I resent it when the doctors try to “fix” me and the people say things like, “Don’t be sad.  Things will get better.” or “Why are you like that?” because this is who I am, this is not some choice I made or some switch that was thrown this is the way it is for me is the way it always has been ever since I can remember and it is judgmental and arrogant to suggest that something is “wrong” with me or should be changed or cured or healed, it is astonishingly prideful and self-centered to assume that the way you are is the way someone else should be yet there are thousands of doctors and social workers and enforcement agencies and spiritual advisors and counselors and whatever set up to do just that, thousands of self-appointed arbiters who demand to effect change upon others because they do not conform, because they are reminders of failure, because they cause pangs of conscience, no one would expect a flower to transform into an animal, a tree into a car, the sky into water, yet many persons are expected even required to attempt to change themselves into what they are not, into some poorly formatted human that wanders oblivious and wonders not, you cannot know my experience you do not know it you cannot even approach it you have no idea what it is like so how dare you, this is not self-pity this is not shame or remorse or fear, I abide by all rules and regulations, I break no laws, yet I am assaulted daily, insulted and ridiculed in an attempt to transform who I am into what is not, or maybe even just disappear

"CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — President Barack Obama ended long-running federal transfers of some combat-style gear to local law enforcement on Monday in an attempt to ease tensions between police and minority communities, saying equipment made for the battlefield should not be a tool of American criminal justice.
 
"Grenade launchers, bayonets, tracked armored vehicles, weaponized aircraft and vehicles, firearms and ammunition of .50-caliber or higher will no longer be provided to state and local police agencies by the federal government under Obama's order."

"Approved: Assembly passes bill that would limit what food stamp recipients can purchase"

Posted 3:12 pm, May 13, 2015, by AP Wire Service, Updated at 10:18pm, May 13, 2015

"MADISON (AP) — The state Assembly has passed bill to limit the types of food that food stamp users could buy, including how much of their allotment can be spent on junk food.
 
"The Assembly passed the Republican-sponsored measure on a 60-35 vote Wednesday.

"The bill would require food stamp recipients to use at least two-thirds of their monthly benefits to purchase nutritional foods such as beef, chicken and produce.

"Republican supporters say they want to prevent people on taxpayer-funded public assistance from spending their money on junk food.

"'A lot of people, an awful lot of people who are on FoodShare are also on BadgerCare, so there is a direct financial benefit not just to the individual, which of course is obvious to have better health, but also to state taxpayers and society as a whole,' Rep. Robin Vos (R-Rochester) said.

"Users would also be barred from buying crab, lobster, shrimp and other shellfish.

"The change would require a federal waiver, which no state has ever received.

"The Assembly passed a similar bill last session but it never got a vote in the Senate."

"Former Racine Mayor Jim Smith accuses current Racine 12th District Alderman Henry Perez of accepting employment from CVS Pharmacy, in exchange for his 'YES' vote and support of the CVS proposal for Ohio Street and Washington Ave.

"These allegations are strong, as this would seem to amount to accepting a bribe by a public official. Stay tuned for more details as they become available."

"Racine- 2nd District Alderman Krystyna Sarrazin RESIGNS her position as Alderman for the City Of Racine."

From Racine Community Media:

"Some are now saying close friend and campaign supporter of Mayor John Dickert, Kimberly Kane, has already been chosen by Dickert to replace Sarrazin. Is this how elections are supposed to work? Are not the people supposed to elect their elected officials, or at least have a say in who their Alderman will be? Not in Racine.

"Kane was appointed to the Racine Cable Commission by Mayor Dickert and according to City Administrator Tom Friedel, she recently sent a letter of resignation resigning herself from the city commission.

"It would appear to be a conflict of interest for Kane, as a campaign supporter and contributor to Mayor Dickert and his campaign, to now being appointed an elected official.

"Kimberly Kane as a city official, also played a major role in destroying the Racine Community Access channel CAR25 for the residents back in 2013. More details to come."

"Report: 2 police officers shot dead in Mississippi; suspects in custody"

"(CNN) - Two police officers were shot in the line of duty in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, late Saturday, officials said.

"The two died from their wounds after being taken to a local hospital, CNN affiliate WDAM reported, citing Forrest County Coroner Butch Benedict. It identified them as Benjamin J. Deen, 34, and Liquori Tate, 25.

"Police have apprehended both suspects, Marvin Banks and Curtis Banks, the local broadcaster reported.

"The two used a police vehicle to flee, which was later found abandoned, according to WDAM.

"'The men and women who go out every day to protect us, the men and women who go out every day to make sure that we are safe, were turned on tonight,' said Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree.

"'Thirty years ago is the last time this happened in Hattiesburg,' Dupree said. He vowed that the perpetrators of the attack would face justice."

I went to high school and college with John Nowicki.  In high school, one of John's brothers was in my grade. John was a little younger.  Where we really cemented our friendship was at UW-Parkside a few tears later.  John introduced me to the woman who would become my wife.

John is the best artist in watercolor that I know.  Seeing the painting in real life is almost brethtaking.  The details are flawless.  You wouldn't believe the number of hours it takes to create something like that .  John pores over his paintings for hour after houor.
