The goofy legistlature is in session and that means that everyone is down there at the capital fighting about who gets what piece of the pie. There are lots of public safety bills that are introduced that could be harmful to officers and we all have faith that someone is taking care of representing us. We shouldn't be so sure.
There is a bill working it's way through the legislature that will eliminate the permit to carry a concealed weapon. The bill is making its way through the house without even a peep from PLEA. The bill would do away with the concealed carry permit program and allow ANYONE over 18 to carry a concealed weapon without a permit or a background check, or training class. Any gang-banger, meth-head, crook, creep -- absolutly anyone.
Anyone who has ever worked the streets knows this bill is bad news, so why isn't Spencer -- or anyone from PLEA down there trying to get the bill killed. Well, its not a big surprise that Arpaio loves the bill, so Spencer keeps his mouth shut like a good ho.
So what is Spencer doing with his time instead? He's trying to get the Police Pension Board to take away Jack Harris' DROP money. He sent in a letter asking them to take away his DROP money because he is still working for the city after he finished the DROP. What you should know is that Spencer already tried to get Harris' DROP taken away and was shown the door. I guess he just can't take no for an answer.
What kind of person goes after a guys pension? I mean, we work a long time looking forward to retirment. If Spencer got Harris' pension taken away -- and he won't -- then what? Does that mean he won?
The hearing in front of the Police Pension Board is on Friday, June 26, 12:00 p.m at 101 South Central Avenue, 6th Floor. If you've got the stomach for it you should stop by and watch Spencer make a fool of himself and PLEA. Nothing like seeing King Spencer in action. Heck, it would be fun to go just to watch him lose another battle.
