Edmonson Amendment radio ad Saturday, Aug 23 2014 

Pirates

What are they hiding?

Friday morning on the statewide Moon Griffon Radio Show an ad began airing that urges the public to contact their leges to insist that they litigate SB 294 and have it declared unconstitutional. There is no lege alternative to stop this taxpayer rip-off.

Robert Burns, Publisher of the State Police Rip-off Website posted the ad on YouTube. Listen here.

What are they hiding?

There’s only one reason why Bobby Jindal, the Leges, the State Police Retirement System and Dork Dynasty refuse to litigate. They are afraid of the legal process of discovery.  Obviously, Jindal, Edmonson and the leges have a lot to hide. Testifying under oath and producing documents often brings out the truth.

Please contract your leges and help circulate the ad to others in LA. The ad scheduled to run for an indefinite period.

Coming soon: “Wives of Dork Dynasty.” It’s reality, but you won’t believe it.

The “49-5 Club” Friday, Aug 22 2014 

DorkDynasty

 

Since Bobby Jindal has been governor, the number of State Troopers available to patrol the highways has been declining. As the numbers dwindled, morale among the working Troopers has also deteriorated.

The excuse we’ve heard for the failure of the State Police to hold recruit academies is the lack of money. Perhaps if the Leges and Jindal had chosen police protection over Non-Governmental Organizations (“NGOs”) there would be money.

“49-5 Club”

There is an obscure group of individuals hired by the Department of Public Safety/State Police for which there is, apparently, plenty of funding.

Mike Edmonson, Superintendent of the La. State Police, has been hiring retired State Troopers who are friends of “Dork Dynasty.” These individuals are known as the “49-5 Club” because they all start off making, in addition to their retirement benefits, $49,500 a year.

Reportedly, Edmonson say that they perform the work that would otherwise be done by working Troopers. Thus, it frees up the Troopers to patrol the highways.

What they do

The club members don’t wear uniforms; have no assigned duties or job descriptions. The job of members of the “49-5 Club” is to do whatever the members of “Dork Dynasty” want them to do. They work in the motor pool, run errands and other menial jobs within the DPS, at the LSP HQ and at regional troop HQs.

When asked for specifics, one with personal knowledge said: “You know, they get the Captain coffee and drive State Police pickup trucks to run errands for Mike.”

Though I once worked as a civilian employee at the LSP HQ, I had no clue that part of a Trooper’s job was to get the Captain coffee and run errands for anyone other than politicians and VIPs.

The salaries of some members of the “49-5 Club” are now at what a starting road Trooper makes. That’s likely one of the reasons that morale is so low among the Troopers.

The next time you see someone not wearing a uniform driving a white pickup truck with LSP/DPS markings on the doors, you will know that he/she is a member of the “49-5 Club.” Maybe they will come help you move that piece of furniture that you have been waiting on your neighbor’s truck to move.

It’s your tax dollars at work. You can’t make this stuff up!

Mike Edmonson: In his own words Thursday, Aug 21 2014 

state Police Badge in shit

Hoping isn’t cleaning the badge

 

Below are prescient comments from Superintendent of State Police Mike Edmonson:

“When you tarnish [the State Police] badge, you take away the trust of society….” KNOE-TV, March 19, 2013

Edmonson is hoping the public doesn’t start suspecting complete corruption…. Ibid.

The above comments remind me of a quotation by Ralph Waldo Emerson: ”The louder he talked of his honor, the faster we counted our spoons.”

The current actions of the La. State Police Retirement System members who wear the badge have created the huge pile of crap you see the badge sinking into above. There are many ways to continue to do wrong; there is only one right solution — litigate SB 294.

If the public has begun “suspecting complete corruption” within the State Police, it is certainly understandable.

Troopers and intimidation

Finally, a few comments are in order to those Troopers who want to curry favor with “Dork Dynasty.”

Before and during the time I was in law school at LSU, I worked as a civilian employee of the State Police at the “Barracks” on North Foster. Most of you weren’t even born then. However, I gained some insight into a mind set found in some Troopers.

When you Troopers see me in public, put your hand on the butt of your Glock and stare, not everyone is aware that you are just trying to intimidate me.

As I told Edmonson I’m not easily intimidated. In the future, you should consider the innocent citizens around me.  They might be intimidated.

Nuff said.
