KEEP ON TOP OF THIS ONE

It appears that our brothers and sisters in blue in Memphis, Tennessee have their own forum to air out their displeasure's with the administration of the Memphis Police Department.
Memphis Police Director Larry Godwin and the city of Memphis have filed a lawsuit to learn who operates a blog harshly critical of Godwin and his department.

The lawsuit asks AOL to produce all information related to the identity of an e-mail address linked to MPD Enforcer 2.0, a blog popular with police officers that has been extremely critical of police leadership at 201 Poplar.

"This is another attempt at disrupting an outlet for officers to gather and complain about the administration," they said on the site.

"Further, this allows us unrestricted communication with the citizens of Memphis. The citizens should be made aware of the scandals that rock the administration and shudder the rocky foundation in which they operate today."

The bloggers also said city attorneys earlier this year wrote a threatening letter on city letterhead to a company that produced T-shirts for the bloggers.

I feel sorry for our brothers that have to work in Memprica under King Willie's rule. They have good hiring standards will hire GED no polygraph or psychological test.

We are edging more and more to a Socialist Marxist nightmare in this country. Freedom is disappearing very rapidly.

If the 2nd Amendment fails all is lost,the Bill of Rights is meaningless.

This was posted under the newspaper articles about the city layoffs,in the comments section. Every copper,their friends and families need to start writing the papers,calling in to the talk shows and calling their alderman; demand a contract and that the city hire 3,000 more officers before more of us get killed or seriously wounded.

The time is now,they are gearing up to sink our contract,fire more officers and let attrition continue without hiring.

This is just completely ludicrous,last year we suffered the largest property tax increase in Chicago's history,we now have the highest sales tax in the country and Mayor Richard M. Daley has Chicago in economic ruin.

The City of Chicago has surging crime,violence is rampant on our streets,homicides are again a daily occurrence and we are over 3,000 police officers short and he wants to lay Chicago Police Officers off?

People please call your elected officials and demand accountability and demand police services. This is a dangerous situation that will cause many people to needlessly die,will your child die today because of the lack of police manpower?

What if Chicago suffers a 9/11 Attack? How many will die because there are not enough police officers? What about the high likelihood of rioting after the November Presidential Elections? Officers are hearing on the streets that there will be riots,they are calling them the Obama Riots.

Mayor Richard M. Daley seeks to enshrine his legacy in his insane quest for the 2016 Olympics which will only burden the taxpayers more,cause traffic chaos,increase prices and make us vulnerable to a potential terrorist attack.

How can Chicago afford the Olympics with budgetary shortfall of $400,000,000? With the streets of Chicago falling apart,our schools the worst in the country,crime surging,corruption rampant,illegal aliens sucking up all of our public services at taxpayer expense,an ongoing recession and housing meltdown?

The PEOPLE will be marching on City Hall shortly.

Hey Sarge:

This is an important case. If their a%%hole of a chief is allowed access, the right of freedom of speech is gone. Keep going with the blog.

The TRUE meaning of the Second Amendment will make its second appearence in US history.

Please keep in mind that this is an open blog
that can and is read by people other than Chicago Police Officers.
