Trying to Hide the Rise of Violent Crime - An In-Depth Look
12/28/15 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
Progressives and their media allies have launched a campaign to deny the ‘Ferguson effect’—but its real, and it’s increasingly deadly for inner cities. Murders and shootings have spiked in many American cities—and so have efforts to ignore or deny the crime increase.

12/26/15 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
Facebook Post Reprint - Anthony Lucas - NYPD: Sometimes it bothers me when people i know say how much they dislike cops, how most cops are assholes and how we get away with so much.

12/24/15 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.

Does the LEOSA Carry Law Apply to You?
12/23/15 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
The law is not as cut-and-dried as you think. And much of what you hear about it is wrong. Having served in the Marine Corps, I am familiar with the perils of scuttlebutt, an old Navy term for water cooler talk that now means rumors and gossip. In law enforcement, a lot of the recent scuttlebutt focuses on off-duty and retired officer carry laws, covering what you can and cannot do under the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA).
Hateful 8 Boycott

National News Networks. Objectivity, Fairness, Truth? Or Something Else?
12/16/15 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
Is anyone else amused at how effective the national media is in manipulating otherwise intelligent people. Life and times are what the media says they are. A place where illusion becomes reality. The lines from a 1969 Simon & Garfunkel song "The Boxer" sum it up the best: "I am just a poor boy.

12/14/15 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.

If you try to look up the most dangerous jobs in America, you’ll no doubt have to scroll a bit before you see police officer. Most of these rankings tend to use total on the job deaths, or in an attempt at the scientific method, total on the job deaths weighed against total employees.
