Fairview Police Activity
updated: Jan 29, 2014, 8:24 AM

By Edhat Subscriber

When I was getting to work just before 7am this morning, there were multiple police cars and officers parked on top of the Fairview bridge. They were standing around outside of their cars. Anyone know what was happening?

Probably another escaped felon, free donuts, or someone to shoot

Right on, 261.

The inmates were probably playing the popular elementary- middle school recess/PE game called Prisoner & somebody called "Jailbreak!"

Next, Roger will be reporting he heard via the Code 33 a commander saying, "Now what do we do? They're running everywhere!"

Why do so many of you bash law enforcement. Some day you, a love one or a friend may need them. Are you going to bash them again? They do put their life's on the line everyday for all of the community. Many will say " this is what they wanted to do" Yes that is correct do you think for one second that they have families and friends to that love them and don't want anything to happen to them. There are MANY good law enforcements personal out there who protect you and your families EVERYDAY. When you see them why don't you thank them for what they are doing for your community, not bash them.

326...you're so right! There are people that say "They've never helped me.", but just their presence deters people with bad intent. I can't envision how chaotic and scary life would be without a police presence.

Being law enforcement is a hard life...on the streets and at home. If they work night...you have to keep the kids quite during the day. Christmas, New Years, Halloween, birthdays, anniversary, earthquakes, fires, floods....they are working and their family's have to deal with it!

There are many, many fine and hard-working officers in the SBC Sheriff's Department. However, there are bad ones too, and it seems the bad ones are the ones in the public eye. A sheriff who lets criminals escape from the jail, an undersheriff who preys on female staffers, a PIO who can't seem to put together a complete sentence...


 COMMENT 490390P agree helpful negative off topic

And then there are the citizens that exaggerate. I have read many complete sentences from the PIO.

I think it's part of the early release program for inmates !! There were inmates there and someone kept yelling FLY and be free,,

These ignrant folks that always bash law enforcement, do so because they have never done law enforcement. Most often they know little to nothing about it. For example I spent over 8 years as a police office and never had a donut on duty and only saw some donuts brought into the station maybe a half dozen times over 8 years usually during a flood, forrest fire or other a call out of extra officers for some special event. Yet there are always some fools posting some sarcastic connection to donuts and the police because they spend their time watching television shows like "The Simpsons", "Family Guy" or "Bevis and Butthead" as their source of information

326 points out that the police put their lives on the line for us every day. But their line of work is not the most hazardous. In fact, police work is only the 10th most hazardous job. Also note that firefighters aren't even in the top ten.
Ten most hazardous jobs:
1. Fishers and related fishing workers
2. Logging workers
3. Aircraft pilots and flight engineers
4. Structural iron and steel workers
5. Farmers and ranchers
6. Roofers
7. Electrical power-line installers and repairers
8. Driver/sales workers and truck drivers
9. Refuse and recyclable material collectors
10. Police and sheriff's patrol officers

It goes both ways. A community needs to have parent figures around to abreviate criminal behavior. My problem is that I see a priviledged class getting away with violations all the time (e.g. parking in red zones to go get a cup of coffee), arriving AFTER some crime to make notes and reports, protecting their own even in the face of obvious illegal activity like that lady cop that fudged the DUI breathalyzer and used xeroxed report sheets already filled out with the defendant's waivers of rights. Where is the crime PREVENTION?

In my own case, I was the subject of PRECLUSION of my First Amendment rights when my reporting was scrutinized by the Sherriff's deputies, WHILE I WAS DETAINED, so they could pass judgment on my material before publication. It is not their prerogative to pass judgment on my content gathered in public spaces. I once had a cop threaten to confiscate my camera at a late night auto accident on Storke IF I had pictures of the wreck happening, in the name of "evidence". I had not seen it, but what kind of police state horsepucky is that, again, a violation of First Amendment. Brown and Sanchez need to have their boys read the Constitution, and get tutored on the rights of common American citizens. We are NOT here for their pleasure; they are supposed to be PROTECTING us, not violating our rights. You wonder why we slam cops? Because we have our eyes wide open!

Why so sensitive about the donuts? It's not going to be aganist the law to say Police and Donuts in the same sentence now is it?
