Dear Ernie:

On behalf of the Shop with a Cop Foundation of Silicon Valley, we wish to express our sincerest gratitude for the generous support from the SJPBA of $250.00. Your donation will enable us to support more children in need this coming holiday season. Your support also helps us improve the educational outcomes and close the achievement gap through the “Readers are Leaders” reading campaign at Santee Elementary School, in San Jose, CA. The children participating in this year’s shopping spree were tested on their reading comprehension and those who excelled through the process were rewarded by participating in the Heroes and Helpers Holiday shopping spree. Students had to “earn” their way. You are playing a critical role in supporting our mission.

On December 4, 2019, we will host 200 children of promise. There will be over 200 police officers from 23 Bay Area police agencies and 70 community volunteers. This experience will leave an indelible image on each child. It will be a great day of giving back during the holidays. The premise of our work is to humanize the people behind the badge so children grow up trusting the police. The Shop with a Cop Foundation of Silicon Valley works on behalf of law enforcement officers and the communities they serve locally to shape strong partnerships and breakdown communication barriers; rebuilding trust through active engagement, education programs and outreach. We could not carry out our mission without generous supporters like you.

This acknowledgement of your contribution is provided pursuant to section 170(1)(8) of the IRS Code and must be kept as a reference for tax purposes. No goods or services were provided in return for the donation received. Our Federal Tax Id# is 45-2780795.

We will list your names unless told otherwise as donors to the “children of promise. Please let us know if you like to be contacted for any volunteer opportunities with our non-profit. Office:(669) 226-2663

In Community Spirit,

Darrell Cortez

Executive Director

Loma Prieta Earthquake, 30 Years Later

The Bay Area marks the 30th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake on October 17th. If you were in the Bay Area on that day in 1989, you knew where you were and what you were doing at 5:04 p.m. when the 6.9 quake rocked the region. In this installment of our award-winning documentary, we’ll take a look at how the earthquake forever changed the Bay Area and what’s being done to prepare for the next big one.

Hear untold stories from the survivors, first responders and unsung heroes from that day. Our interviewees share memories from Candlestick Park, San Francisco’s Marina District, the Cypress Freeway in Oakland and downtown Santa Cruz. They include sportscaster Al Michaels, former Giants star Will Clark, along with former San Francisco mayor Art Agnos and former police chief Frank Jordan. Also, hear from the Oakland surgeon who amputated a young boy’s leg, saving his life and the former firefighter who nearly died when the Cypress freeway collapsed. And, the “miracle survival” story of a family-run bookshop in Santa Cruz.

                         “POLITICAL CORRECTNESS”

We are constantly hearing from the media that Trump is too opinionated and not using political correctness. So what is meant by the “modern” term referred to as “POLITICAL CORRECTNESS”?
The definition is found in 4 telegrams housed at the Truman Library and Museum in Independence, Missouri. The following are copies of four telegrams between President Harry Truman and General Douglas MacArthur on the day before the actual signing of the WWII Surrender Agreement in September 1945.The contents of those four telegrams below are exactly as received at the end of the war – not a word has been added, edited or deleted!

(1) Tokyo, Japan 0800-September 1,1945
To: President Harry S Truman
From: General D A MacArthur
Tomorrow we meet with those yellow-bellied bastards and sign the Surrender Documents, any last-minute instructions?

(2) Washington, DC 1300-September 1, 1945
To: D A MacArthur
From: H S Truman
Congratulations, job well done, but you must tone down your obvious dislike of the Japanese when discussing the terms of the surrender with the press, because some of your remarks are fundamentally not politically correct!

(3) Tokyo, Japan – 1630-September 1, 1945
To: H S Truman
From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz
Wilco Sir, but both Chester and I are somewhat confused, exactly what does the term politically correct mean?

(4) Washington, D C – 2120-September 1, 1945
To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz
From: H S Truman
Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!

Now, with special thanks to the Truman Museum and Harry himself, you and I finally have a full understanding of what “POLITICAL CORRECTNESS” really means.

GRANNY OF THE YEAR!

The Rambo Granny of Melbourne, Australia

Gun-toting granny Ava Estelle, 81, was so ticked-off when two thugs raped her 18-year-old granddaughter that she tracked the unsuspecting ex-cons down… and shot off their testicles.

“The old lady spent a week hunting those men down and, when she found them, she took revenge on them in her own special way, said Melbourne police investigator Evan Delp. Then she took a taxi to the nearest police station, laid the gun on the sergeant’s desk and told him as calm as could be: “Those bastards will never rape anybody again, by God.”

Cops say convicted rapist and robber Davis Furth, 33, lost both his penis and his testicles when outraged Ava opened fire with a 9-mm pistol in the hotel room where he and former prison cell mate Stanley Thomas, 29, were holed up.

The wrinkled avenger also blew Thomas’ testicles to kingdom come, but doctors managed to save his mangled penis, police said.

“The one guy, Thomas, didn’t lose his manhood, but the doctor I talked to said he won’t be using it the way he used to,” Detective Delp told reporters. “Both men are still in pretty bad shape, but I think they’re just happy to be alive after what they’ve been through.”

The Rambo Granny swung into action August 21 after her granddaughter Debbie was carjacked and raped in broad daylight by two knife-wielding creeps in a section of town bordering on skid row.

“When I saw the look on my Debbie’s face that night in the hospital, I decided I was going to go out and get those bastards myself ‘cause I figured the Law would go easy on them,” recalled the retired library worker.

“And, I wasn’t scared of them, either – because I’ve got me a gun and I’ve been shootin’ all my life. And I wasn’t dumb enough to turn it in when the law changed about owning one!”

So, using a police artist’s sketch of the suspects and Debbie’s description of the sickos, tough-as-nails Ava spent seven days prowling the wino-infested neighborhood where the crime took place, ’til she spotted the ill-fated rapists entering their flophouse hotel.

“I knew it was them the minute I saw ’em, but I shot a picture of ’em anyway and took it back to Debbie, and she said sure as hell it was them,” the oldster recalled.

“So I went back to that hotel and found their room and knocked on the door, and the minute the big one opened the door, I shot ’em r2ight square between the legs, right where it would really hurt ’em most, you know. Then I went in and shot the other one as he backed up pleading to me to spare him. Then I went down to the police station and turned myself in.”

Now, baffled lawmen are trying to figure out exactly how to deal with the vigilante granny. “What she did was wrong, and she broke the law, but it is difficult to throw an 81-year-old woman in prison,” Det. Delp said, “especially when 3 million people in the city want to nominate her for Grandmother of the Year.

DEPORT HER TO AMERICA – WE NEED HER!
