A Beer With Obama Changes Nothing By Karen L. Bune

With the backlash and outrage that has erupted over President Obama’s interference and outlandish, uncalled for remarks concerning the arrest of Harvard Professor Henry Gates, Obama is now trying to smooth rough waters. He personally called and spoke with Cambridge Police Sgt. James Crowley and, after talking with him, publicly announced at a press conference that perhaps Sgt. Crowley and Professor Gates could visit the White House and share a beer with the President. “My impression of him was… Continue

Police Pursuit Scrutiny: Coming to a City Near You

A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to watch a live pursuit on a national news station. The pursuit caught my attention because it involved the Houston Police Department (HPD) and in the past few years, HPD has come under scrutiny for Pursuits.

Before I continue, let me say that I have spent some time with Houston Police Officers, interviewed many of them during a promotional process a few years ago and found the agency to be professional and progressive. The fact that HPD… Continue

Professor Gates and President Obama Out Of Bounds By Karen L. Bune

“The apology won’t come from me. I’ve done nothing wrong,” said Sgt. James Crowley of the Cambridge Massachusetts Police Department. Henry Louis Gates, a Black man, a Harvard Professor, and a friend of President Barack Obama, is demanding one from the police officer. Responding to a report of a possible breaking and entering, Sgt. Crowley encountered Gates who reportedly was uncooperative, belligerent, and yelling loudly. He refused to provide identification when asked for it. Gates wound up… Continue

Cops these days don’t let any grass grow under their feet. Officer Dariel Firpo, a new and recent graduate of the New York Police Department Academy, no sooner finished his graduation ceremony when he observed a senior citizen being robbed and thrown to the ground. Without hesitation, Officer Firpo instantaneously went into pursuit mode and chased the culprit until he was able to apprehend him and place him under arrest.

Call Boston PD and Save The Horse-Mounted Unit Now! By Karen L. Bune

It’s not too late for a last ditch effort to save the Boston Police Department’s Horse-Mounted Unit. Though the city council voted to disband the unit due to budget constraints and tough economic times, the horses have not yet left. And, in the meantime, John Henry and the Red Sox have offered up money to keep the horses and retain the horse-mounted unit intact.

This unit is valuable to the city, and it has been in existence for 150 years. In a city that receives visitors from all… Continue

Senator Barbara Boxer's Pettiness Is An Affront By Karen L. Bune

It is apparent that Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Calif) is either replete with self-aggrandizing egotism or a blatant level of profound ignorance in which either case she enhances the critics of women in powerful positions who are oftentimes perceived by some as self-centered shrews. Boxer’s response to Brigadier General Michael Walsh, of the Army Corps of Engineers, subsequent to him addressing her as “ma’am” according to military protocol, was a shameful and unbecoming public display of behavior… Continue
