⚖PART I: We Can’t Fix Policing Because We Have Been Looking the WRONG WAY for Decades.

KELO NEWS.

Mr. George Floyd’s tragic death was not due to a lack of training — the training was there.” ~Testimony of Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arrandondo.

“The ugly truth is that police departments have not done the work and America has wasted decades on the remaining, and grossly inferior, cure options. That works for all but Black America, as long as Black America alone carries the burden of your delay.

Today, I return that burden to you.“

As long as the plan includes us absorbing the lion’s share of the harm, the plan is for us to die.

To change the police culture, you must change the culture makers. CULTURE=CULTURE MAKERS.

Fire those who fail to supervise to the public’s detriment.

PART I. OUR RELATIONSHIP IS WITH THE DEPARTMENT.
PART II. THE DEPARTMENT MUST (AND CAN) CORRAL THE POLICE.
PART III. A DEPARTMENT DOING ITS JOB NEUTRALIZES THE UNION.
PART IV. YOUR SERGEANT, LIEUTENANT, CAPTAIN, MAJOR, & DEPUTY NON-ACCOUNTABILITY IS KILLING A PEOPLE.
PART V. FIX THEM OR WE FIRE THEM AND YOU.

He who suffers the consequences is motivated to drive the change. CONSEQUENCES=CHANGE.

It is no more, and no less, complicated than that.

Bad performance is not always a manifestation of bad supervision, but bad supervision always manifests through bad performance.

Next, as is true in most departments, your sergeants are your first-line of supervision, and they have clue after clue that the apples in their barrels are spoiling, or have gone full over. These are just a few; a barrel holds three to four-hundred.

He who suffers the consequence is more driven to find the cure. And who better to drive that than the one who put it into play to begin with?“

LMPD’s Standard Operating Procedures expressly allow for it. “Metro Government has the right to discipline or terminate/discharge members for just cause.” SOP §2.11.4.

He who SUFFERS THE CONSEQUENCES is motivated to DRIVE THE CHANGE.

Be the force motivating the driver,
