Police Gearing Up for Budget Battle

Posted July 22nd, 2016 @ 11:38 AM by

Every year the police are the most political at budget time – Chief Wray was a little more smooth than Koval – but they don’t act like the other departments. I wish Community Services would do the same thing they do – just one year. But when us alders tried, we got put in our place. Anyways, when they submit their budgets, the police always have a memo. Other departments don’t do this. Here’s this years . . . grab a bucket.

Not My Police Department

Posted July 19th, 2016 @ 8:48 AM by

Chief Koval recently wrote a blog in which he says “The Police are the Public and the Public are the Police.” It sounds nice, but it doesn’t erase everything else that has happened in the past few years. Crafting with a Cop, serving hot dogs at a community event, and having an article written that says that Samba Baldeh and the Chief have reconciled their differences – doesn’t fix things. It ignores real and serious problems. It seems like a PR attempt to sweep things under the rug. It fails to acknowledge real harms and real problem. We have a policing crisis. They might not see it, but its real, and these things will do nothing to solve it. Hang in with me for a moment and let me explain.

What (some) Madison Police Officers Think of Madison Residents

It ain’t good. Includes words like “go fuck yourselves”, “assbags” and “glory-holing nincompoops” . . . yes, some of Madison’s finest, Dean Baldukas and Scott McConnell. These guys are out on the streets and may answer when you call. Be warned.
