Blanchard Ryff
You have to wonder whether former Tempe “police officer” Jared Blanchard was trying to reprise the role of Cadet George Martin in the first Police Academy movie…

The story of Blanchard has been talked about on local news outlets and publications for the past couple days. In a nutshell, Blanchard resigned from the Tempe Police Dept. this week, after he admitted to “using his position” to have sex with women. His antics ranged from … Read Entire Article

If Tempe Police goons are ordered by Chief Tom Ryff to designate this seemingly sweet, harmless woman a “hazard,” no telling what they’ll eventually try and do to my black ass.

CBS 5 (KPHO), which is the only television network in this city with a backbone, interviewed Ms. Eleanor Holguin a couple weeks ago after she called 911 to aid her elderly father. But instead of being greeted by friendly, helpful paramedics, Tempe Police thugs showed up, and the paramedics who showed up quizzed her before helping her. Here is the report:… Read Entire Article

Jurjevich

UPDATED 2/13/2009 2:30 pm MST

Friday the 13th turned out to be Whitney Jurjevich’s lucky day. Authorities in Montgomery County, PA have decided not to press charges against Jurjevich, the Tempe Police Officer who shot and killed Stan Rosenblatt’s dog, Bruce, while visiting his father January 16. According to the press release, Jurjevich had the right to carry the gun, and the right to shoot the dog because he said he felt threatened. The police, according to the press release, did not take into account Jurjevich also pointed the gun at Rosenblatt … Read Entire Article

Jurjevich
Tempe Police Officer Whitney Jurjevich may be off the hook. Montgomery (PA) County Assistant District Attorney Abby Silverman said a final decision will be reached by the end of the day as to whether or not charges will be brought. Pennsylvania and Arizona have similar concealed weapons laws, so the only item at issue is whether or not the dog was under control when Jurjevich shot him. “If a person reasonably believes a dog will hurt him, they have the right to use a weapon to defend themselves,” Silverman said.

The saying goes “once is a chance, twice a coincidence, three times a pattern,” but the proverb needs amending when it comes to Tempe criminal cops, especially Officer Mike Wallace.

In the course of my research tonight, as a federal lawsuit will be filed against Tempe without settlement of the claim by mid-March, I found this … Read Entire Article
