Tell Me it Ain't so ol' Joe Arpaio

  • Check them stars out on the lapel. Did ya read his books and find a hero to keep ya safe from the boogieman? Is everyone of the law and not above it? If ol' Joe is guilty as charged will he lie to save his carcass? If he is found guilty is he like the rest of those criminals he loved to dump into Tent City and feed green bologna for breakfast, dinner and supper? Is he gonna wear pink boxers like the other criminals he dealt with? He's a professional and not a teenager caught with 420. But . . . not so fast . . . he could be guilty of a felony. Na, he has sense enough to claim the judges wife was Al Qaeda or something.
  • Like a wise old man once said . . . "When you start believing your own B.S. that's when you get in trouble. Them stars, national TV and books. Will I think you get it . . . don't you friends?

    Robert Bates Shoots Eric Harris - Attitude as the Contributing Factor

    We've been considering points of improvement in the Criminal Justice System. Consider this for a moment . . . Robert Bates is dumping cash on the police. He is not adequately trained and at least one Training Officer falsified records because he was afraid. Now the Sheriff and the Captain can't remember anything as they play politics to protect their own skin. Remember folks, this stuff is happening in a neighborhood near you. It's called being human and a uniform doesn't bury these tendencies.

    COPBLOCK & Hail to The Truth!

    Aida Guzman Okay, can't be said better than this. Lieutenant Josey punches a woman in the face; enough said? Assault is a crime; enough said? 'Oh the cop was just doing his job'. Next time your doing your job and a lady annoys you with silly-string punch her in the face and see what happens; enough said?

    Beatriz Paez Okay, a US Deputy Marshal knocks a cell from a woman's hands; enough said? Nothing illegal about taping this; enough said? 'Oh, the cop was having a bad day'. Next time you're having a bad day damage some one else's property at work and see what happens; enough said?

    Good-lord, I tell you, some of the emails I receive. I write two stories about this. I was a cop in a prior life but in the end, . . . it's about believing what your seeing. I don't need a weather man to tell me which way the wind is blowing. Some of you folks out there should stay tuned to the Weather Channel.

    Beatriz Paez has rights . . . or does she? US Deputy Marshal doesn't Think So!

    California is strengthening laws to insure the legality of folks to record their public servants serving and protecting them. I'm thinking the officers out there don't want to be recorded doing their best to keep us all safe and happy in the land of the brave. Well Ms Paez is certainly brave. Many thanks. Oh, for you folks who love every cop ever blessed with a badge, don't worry, this Marshal will say he thought it was a weapon and he'll be set free to disrespect other women. If a citizen did this it would be criminal as in Criminal Damage to Property. Funny how that works. If it wasn't for cameras and social media this would have never been addressed. How did the Civil Rights workers prevail?

    Just another Review of 'Brand of Justice'

    1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
    Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase
    Mr Rude's keen sense for detail has the reader immersed within the scene every step of the way..."Brand of Justice" is going to create a Brobdingnagian impact in the murder/mystery scene! The plot, one thinks at first is spelled out, until ah-ha! Nope, not what you'd expect...there it went and twisted and turned again. Between the completely enthralling storyline and the truth of the matter of things in law enforcement that no one else but Mr Rude has the guts to reveal, "Brand of Justice" is undeniably, hands-down a must read and you won't put it down til you're done!

    Agreed . . . my stories are Fiction that read like Non-Fiction

    This review from an Amazon top 10 Reviewer

    The story, with its cataclysmic climax, was pretty extreme, but from reading newspaper headlines about corrupt cops, I know this kind of thing does happen in real life, perhaps not quite so dramatically, but it happens. Author Curt Rude has done a nice job of fictionally describing one "bad cop" scenario.

    The Police keep selling More and More of my Stories!

    Look, my stories are disturbing. I take you by the hand and lead you across the blue line to give you a peek at what they are really like. One Reviewer was so disturbed with the names of the officers in this story she renamed them to finish the book. Is the story plausible? Follow the headlines lately and you tell me. With each headline my books pick up interest. Thanks Officer Slager and on and on.
