Will’s Solution to Local Law Enforcement
Newsletter: 5 September 2010
Our county faces a growing crisis. Every year, law enforcement agencies seek to increase their budget and their manpower. These requests are accompanied by the same argument – “with more police and more or better equipment we can cut down on crime.” Yet, consistently, the opposite is what occurs. Our communities see an increase in crime, and often a rise in more violent crimes.

The conclusion is inescapable. Present police methods DO NOT WORK. Current methods of patrol, where units work an area in a random pattern, watching for criminal activity, and police are deployed to provide a certain amount of personnel throughout a 24 hour period does not result in a decrease in crime.

Our present Sheriff is a supporter of this method of law enforcement. He points to 24 hour patrol, a new building, and a full complement of personnel as well as his personal involvement in a large number of community advisory boards as evidence of success. Unfortunately our primary goal of lowering the crime rates, arresting offenders and keeping the peace remains unimproved. The Sheriff Department may look good, but its not performing as well as it could.

My solution involves returning to a simpler, more direct method of law enforcement that is in keeping with the vision of our Founding Fathers and based in the U.S. Constitution. Consider this; the majority of citizens are law-abiding, honest, hard-working people who want safer streets, order and less crime. Further, in every community, the vast amount of criminals are known, not only by law enforcement, but by the members of the community themselves. Finally, crimes do not occur in a vacuum. In other words, multiple burglaries occur, not just one. Oilfield larcenies occur in groups, not in single events. So why do those of us in law enforcement assume random patrols and 24 hour coverage are going to catch the majority of criminals?

It may be politically incorrect to say this but the truth of the matter is that, as peace officers, our duties are not to regulate the conduct of law-abiding citizens, or force their “compliance,” rather, our duty is to seek out, properly investigate, and arrest (based on probable cause) those members of our society who prey on others. While doing this we have an over-riding duty to protect everyone’s constitutional rights.

My solution involves recognizing that the majority of crimes are committed by a limited amount of criminals, most of whom are already known to law enforcement. The records sections of local law enforcement agencies are full of information on criminals who have been handled for certain types of crimes, and the amount of unserved arrest warrants is staggering. In my proposed methodology, the Sheriff’s Department will deploy its force based on the actual threats, rather than the possibility of the presence of a threat. We will:

  1. Cease random, unfocused patrols and minimize our response to non-criminal events that do not require enforcement activities.
  2. Research local criminal trends for type, location, and method.
  3. Deploy our units in a focused response to those specific threats and make an arrest as soon as possible.
  4. Watch for and react to situations of opportunity as we investigate crimes to stop those crimes that we observe.
  5. We will expend our resources on stopping the criminal, not policing the public at large.

Just a reminder to everyone, early voting is a great way to make sure your vote counts. We all get busy, and sometimes Election Day becomes a day where we are just too busy to vote. By voting early, Your Vote Counts! This is a critical election for local offices and on the national level. Let your voice be heard!

Ron Paul 2008 Presidential Campaign, RIP (July 2007 — February 2008)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — weeklysedition @ 10:57 PM

On 8 February 2008, I received the following email from the Ron Paul for President campaign —

Whoa! What a year this has been. And what achievements we have had. If I may quote Trotsky of all people, this Revolution is permanent. It will not end at the Republican convention. It will not end in November. It will not end until we have won the great battle on which we have embarked. Not because of me, but because of you. Millions of Americans — and friends in many other countries — have dedicated themselves to the principles of liberty: to free enterprise, limited government, sound money, no income tax, and peace. We will not falter so long as there is one restriction on our persons, our property, our civil liberties. How much I owe you. I can never possibly repay your generous donations, hard work, whole-hearted dedication and love of freedom. How blessed I am to be associated with you. Carol, of course, sends her love as well.

Let me tell you my thoughts. With Romney gone, the chances of a brokered convention are nearly zero. But that does not affect my determination to fight on, in every caucus and primary remaining, and at the convention for our ideas, with just as many delegates as I can get. But with so many primaries and caucuses now over, we do not now need so big a national campaign staff, and so I am making it leaner and tighter. Of course, I am committed to fighting for our ideas within the Republican party, so there will be no third party run. I do not denigrate third parties — just the opposite, and I have long worked to remove the ballot-access restrictions on them. But I am a Republican, and I will remain a Republican.

I also have another priority. I have constituents in my home district that I must serve. I cannot and will not let them down. And I have another battle I must face here as well. If I were to lose the primary for my congressional seat, all our opponents would react with glee, and pretend it was a rejection of our ideas. I cannot and will not let that happen.

Basically, what’s he saying is that he’s giving up on the Presidential campaign to focus on his Congressional campaign. From the strategic standpoint, this is a good plan. Still, many of the supporters of the presidential campaign were disillusioned about this (as I was). This decision of Dr. Paul’s was confirmed in an email from the presidential campaign dated 27 February 2008 —

Ron Paul has conceded that there is now little chance of a brokered convention, but has pledged to continue his campaign to bring his message of peace, freedom and prosperity to the Republican convention. The prize now is to have a significant influence in the future direction of the Republican party.

One of the things that you can do is run for State Legislature, and post the Ron Paul Revolution graphic on your website and your literature.
Here in New Mexico, it’s pitifully easy to get on the ballot as a candidate for State Legislature, even if you’re running as a “third-party” candidate, as I am (Libertarian for State Senate, District 26). It will only take me about 200 petition signatures to get myself listed on the ballot.

As for using a logo created to support a Republican candidate, well, it was originally created by long-time Libertarian activist Ernest Hancock for his 2006 campaign for Arizona  Secretary of State —

If the Ron Paul Revolution is going to have an impact, it’s got to be about more than just Ron Paul, and Ron Paul admits this — he says that he’s just the current messenger. What needs to happen is that more people need to take up the role of messenger for Liberty.

Kucinich vs. Ron Paul

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , — weeklysedition @ 6:44 PM

Roger Kulp wrote on the [Ron Paul] meetup board (Here’s the direct link):

Sorry.But just as I am no longer a libertarian (Call me an an anarcho-Proutist.) ,there is no way I can support Ron Paulanymore.Six months ago,yes,but no more.

To say nothing of the fact,I believe in separation of church and state.I am an athiest.Ron Paul is a blatant theocrat.This alone is why he must be stopped at all costs.Forget every other issue. See what the God-o-meter has to say: http://blog.beliefnet.com/godometer/index.html

<yawn></yawn>

I guess you missed this part —

Somewhat surprised to hear Dennis Kucinich speaking against the separation of “spiritual values” and state in yesterday’s Democratic debate, God-o-Meter did some digging and discovered that the Catholic Kucinich grew up studying the lives of the saints and Scripture in Latin. In 2004, The Christian Science Monitor called him possibly the “most overtly spiritual of the Democratic candidates.” Oh what a difference three years makes.

If Paul is a theocrat, at least he reads and understands the Constitution, unlike Dennis the Twerp.

I also believe in the separation of corporation and state. American capitalism,isa creation of American government,with whom they have had a symbioticrelationship since the days of Alexander Hamilton.Something Paul wouldnever do.Ron Paul is an educated guy.He has read Mises and Rothbard,yethe holds up Milton Friedman,as a paragon of the free market.Nothing isfurther from the truth.I went last night,and am starting to lean moreand more towards Kucinich. Not ten minutes into his talk,Kucinichcondemns the corporate s tate.He won me over right there.

When has Kucinich EVER read Mises OR Rothbard?

Here’s a fun little read: http://www.goodjobsfirst.org/pdf/wmtstudy.pdf
Would Ron Paul talk about this ?Or would he blindly agree with Rockwelland his ilk ? Kucinich said as long as we continue to shop atWalmart,for cheap Chinese junk,China will gladly bankroll our wars.

How do any of the subsidies mentioned in the report pass Constitutional muster?

And how many of the subsidies are handed out at the state and local level?

Ron Paul’s worshiping of the “free” market,is why he will not condemn Blackwater.What proof do I have ? See this : http://www.house.gov/paul/congrec/congrec2001/cr120401.htm He has yet to come out with anything newer on Blackwater.He has been much too quiet on the subject.

Last time I checked, Dr. Paul has been hammering the Administration on the Iraq Occupation, which is a major source of Blackwater’s income.

And just how bad would Blackwater be if the company wasn’t contracted to the Bush Administration?

Then in the Q&A he talked about how American puppet governments in LatinAmerica were only an extension of the genocide Columbus and his ilk haddone 500 years earlier,which was why he would agree with abolishingColumbus day,once he was President.

Who here is stopping you from packing up and moving to Europe?

Who here is stopping you from turning over your home, car and other possessions to the nearest tribe of Siberian-Americans?

Watch this,if you have the guts.
Video here

Ever hear of TinyURL ? (Look it up on your own — and wipe your own ass for a change, while you’re at it.)

He also agreed American treatment of Mexicans,through illegal wars of conqueston Mexico,the Bracero program,NAFTA,CAFTA,are an accumulation of 160+years of maltreatment of Mexican people,as bad as anything done tonative people or African Americans.Kucinich agreed with this, and saida high-tech border wall will only compound these atrocities.The polaropposite of Ron Paul. And the 2 reason I cannot support Paul.As ananarchist,I do not believe in borders.The border issue alone,proves RonPaul is a bigger statist than Kucinich.

The noise about illegal immigration is simply addressing the symptoms instead of the cause.

As for “Ron Paul is a bigger statist than Kucinich,” I guess you missed Dennis’ proposal following the Virginia Tech massacre to ban civilian possession of handguns ?

Remember that Dennis is an avowed enemy of the individual right to own and carry weapons —

http://kucinich.house.gov/Issues/Issue/?IssueID=1557weapons

By signing up with the Kucinich campaign, you’re giving the same sort of jack-booted thugs that were killing people at Kent State, the 1985 MOVE house in Philadelphia, PA, Ruby Ridge, Waco and Rainbow Farm the power to point at your name on a computer screen and say, “This one dies.”

When will you post a “NO GUNS IN THIS HOUSE” sign in your front window or lawn?

Kucinich would be bigger than Ron Paul if he had half the grassroots supportPaul does.Capitalism is a failure.Socialism/communism is afailure.Conservatism is a failure. (Libertarianism is now coopted as asubsidiary of “The Conservative Movement.” Thanks in large part,to RonPaul.) Only Mike Gravel and Dennis Kucinich realize that we need tomove on beyond all of these failed ideologies.

Who’s “we” here?

And why is libertarianism “now coopted as a subsidiary of ‘TheConservative Movement.'” ? I haven’t considered myself a conservative for ten, twelve years now.

Sure, there are issues where libertarians and conservatives agree, just as there are issues where libertarians and liberals agree.

So I guess the conservatives will say that “Libertarianism is now coopted as a subsidiary of ‘The Liberal Movement.'” ?

Wendy McElroy calls Ron Paul supporters “Paul bearers of the libertarian movement.”I think that sums it up quite well.

Got a link?

Tom Knapp‘s commentary against Ron Paul actually makes some sense, from a libertarian perspective —

The truth is out there . . . but is it waaaaaay out there?
Incredibly Stupid Statement of the Day, 06/14/07

If it weren’t for L. Neil Smith advocating that the LP nominate “None Of The Above” for president and cross-endorse Ron Paul, I most likely wouldn’t be supporting Dr. Paul — Instead of a Speech

Ron Paul and Hillary Clinton are not so very far apart on health care.Bothare corporate shills.Guess what ? As an ex-libertarian,I believe inKucinich’s commie plan ! (GASP!) I have personally seen what highcopays from private employee- mandated health plans can do to someonewith severe chronic health problems. In this case my sister.She has adebt in the high five figures,due to compounding medical bills.She willbe paying on this like a mortgage for decades.Ahh the beauty of the”free” “market”!

Just ask Sala what a great deal she got while under the care of the British “National Health Service,” which is kind of like what Dennis wants to institute here in America.

I suspect that the main reason he’s not supporting Medicare Part D is that it was George Bush II that signed it into law, and not Al Gore or John Kerry.

Feel free to join the fray at these lists —

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ex-libertarian

Ron Paul has been largely silent about American nuclear disarmament.Kucinichopenly supports it,and retooling labs like Sandia and Los Alamos forpeaceful means.Where is Ron Paul on this ?

Where in the Constitution are the labs mentioned in the first place? I’m guessing that the labs are covered under “forts, magazines, arsenals, dockyards, and other needful buildings” ?
