    Talking Mayor orders cops to write more tickets, so they pull him over and arrest him...

    The Oakland County Prosecutor's Office is expected to decide this week whether to file charges against several Rochester police officers, who allegedly misused a police database.

    A criminal investigation by the Oakland County Sheriff's Office was turned over to the Prosecutor's Office for review Oct. 20.

    In August, the Rochester Police Department asked the Sheriff's Office to investigate officers who officials say might have used the database illegally during traffic stops of Rochester Mayor David Katulic.

    In June, during one of those stops, Katulic was arrested on a warrant that stemmed from an unpaid traffic ticket out of Shelby Township.

    Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe wouldn't reveal what kind of information the officers were getting from the Law Enforcement Information Network -- a police database that contains information such as criminal records, outstanding warrants, license plate numbers and driving records.

    The database is limited to use by police and prosecutors investigating criminal activity. Searching it for personal use is a misdemeanor punishable by 93 days in jail, a $500 fine or both, McCabe said.

    Edward Cibor, chief of the warrants division in the Prosecutor's Office, said he plans to speak today with the sheriff's deputy who led the investigation. He wouldn't release details of the investigation, but said a decision on whether charges will be filed will likely be made this week.

    Officer Keith Harper, a police union steward, said four officers, one sergeant and one dispatcher were contacted by the Sheriff's Office and told they were being investigated. Their names have not been released.

    Harper wouldn't comment on whether he is one of the officers involved, but said he believes the investigation is retaliation for the mayor's arrest.

    "We were told that we were targeting the mayor," Harper said. "That doesn't make sense."

    He said Katulic was stopped five times and each stop was because of a broken headlight. And because the city has a ticket quota -- an issue that has caused much static between the officers and police and city administration in recent months -- Harper said equipment violations make for easy stops.

    "When you go through your shift, you look for anything and everything," Harper said, adding that officers have to average three traffic stops and 1.5 tickets during an 8-hour shift. "He was a highly visible target."

    Neither Katulic nor Police Chief Ted Glynn would comment on the investigation or on how they believe the officers misused the police database.

    "I don't hold any tension" toward the officers, Katulic said. "I'm going ahead as normal."

    But Glynn said there has been friction. Last month, shortly after the county began its investigation, the Rochester City Council considered the possibility of dissolving the Police Department and contracting out services to the Sheriff's Office.

    Ultimately the council decided to cease talks with the county and hire a consultant to review the issues. Some council members claimed the talks were being used as a tool in labor negotiations.

    Still, Katulic said, the investigation and the discussions with the county about providing police services were not connected.

    "There's a lot of things in life that work out to be unfortunate timing," he said.

    But Ed Jacques, director of member services for the Police Officers Association of Michigan, said he disagrees. He said all of the actions the city and police administration took have been deliberate.

    "There is no question that the investigation is 100% retaliatory," Jacques said.

    He said the officers had the right to acquire background information during the traffic stops.

    "The mayor had warrants out for his arrest. The officer arrested him. Why is he any different than some other criminal that's got a warrant out for his arrest?" Jacques said.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Politicians.Fuck 'em.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.

    I saw Oakland and I thought, just for a second, it meant that Jerry Brown got arrested.

    beeeeeeeeuuuttttiiiffuuulll!!! !!!!!
    In memory of Carlos Borland.

    Trooper Borland was shot and killed when he stopped a car on I-80, just outside of Lovelock, Nevada, whose driver was wanted for not paying for gasoline. Unbeknownst to Trooper Borland, the suspect had just murdered two people in Texas and the vehicle was stolen. Before stopping the vehicle Trooper Borland had requested a check on the plates, but the plates had not yet been entered into NCIC. As he approached the vehicle the man pulled out a .38 caliber handgun and shot him in the head.

    The suspect was apprehended later that day. He was convicted of Trooper Borland's murder and sentenced to death.

    Trooper Borland had served with the agency for 1 year.

    BE SAFE COURTEOUS AND PROFESSIONAL WITH ALL YOUR CONTACTS, AND ALWAYS HAVE A BACK-UP PLAN ON HOW TO KILL THEM.

    GOD CREATED COPS SO THAT FIREMEN COULD HAVE HEROS TOO!!!
