And another one…


Manager of Safety Charlie Garcia has continued his lil crusade against lying cops by terminating another Denver police officer.  Yesterday, Garcia terminated Detective Jay Estrada.  According to the Denver Post,  Garcia terminated Estrada for “mishandling information in the case of a pregnant woman who lost her baby in a hit-and- run accident.”  Apparently, in December 2010, Laurie Gorham Sherlock was crossing the street in her Stapleton neighborhood when she was run over.  Estrada was involved in the investigation and neglected to follow up on a tip he received.  He the lied to Internal Affairs.  Now he has been fired and the  rank-and-file and the union is probably up- in-arms.  Boy do they hate Charlie Garcia.  The infighting is glorious…

Former Detective Jay Estrada

According to our complicated calculations, with Estrada gone, that means 6 down and 1194 to go.  We’ll keep our fingers crossed.  The common thread here is that these officers were caught lying.  Clearly, Garcia does not give a fuck about officers and/or deputies that kill people, such as Sgt. Carrie Rodriguez and deputies James Grimes, Faun Gomez, Kenneth Robinette and Kyle Sharp, who are the murderers of Marvin Booker.  Or crazy motha fuckers like officer Shawn Miller that repeatedly assault the most vulnerable of citizens.

Even in instances such as when Officers Randy Murr, Devin Sparks, and Ricky Nixon were terminated it was not due to their atrocious and brutal behavior.  Nor was it due to the fact that they lied.  Rather it was because they were caught lying.  Garcia ain’t fooling us, and unless he disbands the entire police department and allows citizen and community based approaches to policing, separated from the state, I will continue to not be impressed.  Clearly, this will not happen anytime soon nor would it be a process in which the state willingly relinquishes power.

On that note here are some videos to go on and rile people up.
