WHOA!! I think I just saw a ghost!
Where have you been hiding?
Army SF is the guys is the OD-A teams (A-Teams). People confuse Special Forces with Special Ops, J-SOC etc.
Doing this stuff. It's ridiculously time intensive and a lot of what I do involves a computer. I'm not exactly fired up to hit the message boards that often. How's things in your city?
If there's interest, I'll make an effort to keep the Masscops guys updated on the status of this initiative. It's crazy right now because of the NY Times article and the Harvard thing.
Springfield is a fickle place. It'll only take one police involved shooting or allegation of police brutality to shake the locals up. I hope the program works out but I think community leadership in other parts if the city are suspect.
You would have to see it to believe it. If you told me a year ago that 20 year old guys would approach fully uniformed troopers in broad daylight (and in the most densely populated street in the area) and openly point out drug dealers...I'd have called you crazy.
These people have seen the change and are sick of the gangs ruining their lives. They love the SPD and the MSP.
This is an example of how perseverance on the part of law enforcement can work. I've always respected B-3 and the SPD for the professionalism they've showed in those neighborhoods even while being called names and shot at.
Hey, at least in Springfield when one of my guys gets shot at they are nice enough to hit him in the vest. Chicopee...not so much.
It is my absolute hope that only the turds get shot from this point on and that the sheepdogs all go home safe. WAY TOO Fucking many this year.
Absolutely! Are there any plans to try this in cities such as Brockton, Lowell, Lawrence etc.? I would imagine you need the local department to be fully on board.
I could see Willie L sabotaging this. He doesn't like to see his henchmen get hassled by the man.
Very true. I wasn't thinking I guess.
Way above my pay grade, but I wouldn't be shocked....and yes, the partnership with the local PD is essential.
THIS - is huge!
Actually, I have no idea....I tore a ligament in my left thumb fighting with a drunk, so I've been out injured since February, and I never listen to the radio at home.
I think I've just been schooled
This is similar to what we have been doing with the Neighborhood Associations here. Sadly it worked much better when we actually had more boots on the ground.....
Not busting your stones, just working with these guys has given me a whole new set of pet peeves (as if I didn't have enough). One is calling the SF guys "Green Berets" and the other is referring to other units as "Army Special Forces". Sorry.
It may appear so from the article but there is so much to it. Feel free to contact us, the guys on the team have no problem speaking to other PD's about it.
