A variety of comments re: these articles and I would be remiss if I didn’t include a kind word:

From Radio: Mark Pimentel is one of the hardest working guys out there..He was usually motors so no matter what channel I was on, when a big call came out. fight. stabbing. fill. burglary in progress…lost old person..Whatever..Mark was almost always the first or one of the first on scene. No matter what district or side of town.

One of the last calls I worked with him before I retired:

Suicidal man hanging onto the outside railing of the Capitol Expressway overcrossing of 101.

I’m wiped out of units. Mark switches over. attached to the call. I am still trying to get fills for him. CHP en route but extended.

Mark goes on scene, still no fill..in about 7 minutes has the guy climbing back over the rail and to safety. all by himself.

That is just one tiny example. Does he deserve to lose it all..after all the good he’s done? 

and..even herded a group of baby ducklings and their  Mom across a busy roadway !

Editor’s Note: I visited the Facebook group, 10-7ODSJ, every day. Sometimes numerous times a day. I did not see any racist or anti-Muslim posts. It is interesting that with all the fanfare, none of the news articles provided a sample, or I may have missed them.

Will someone do me a favor and forward a copy of anything they might have that was judged racist or anti-Muslim?

After hearing of the hullabaloo and considering the nationwide anti-police efforts ongoing, it will be interesting to see the  results of the investigation. Anyone keeping up on the news will be familiar with the mass protests to defund the police departments. And lo and behold, we have this article “Calls to defund police intensify after racist Facebook posts involving San Jose officers” HERE

OAKLAND, CA – JUNE 28: Demonstrators with The Defund the Police Coalition painted the words “Defund the Police” in front of the home of Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf in Oakland, Calif., on Sunday, June 28, 2020. Hundreds of demonstrators with The Defund the Police Coalition held a massive car caravan today. The caravan started from the Port of Oakland and visited the homes of Oakland city council members and the mayor. The goal of the caravan was to raise awareness with the Oakland voters and encourage them to register to vote for the defunding of the police and reallocating resources to community programs.

#DefundThePolice. We demand acknowledgment and accountability for the devaluation and dehumanization of Black life at the hands of the police.

San Jose Police Chief Weighs In On Proposed Department Reforms

Between the Chief and POA prez, Guilty until proven innocent seems to be the San Jose model….

Paul admits he hasn’t investigated yet,

but throws officers, active and retired, under the bus!

I tried to call the POA to quit the organization, but answering machine message was rude and the machine is unable to take a message. I went to the web page and clicked on the “Contact” icon, left a message to delete my membership.

GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT! THANK YOU PAUL
Blog post unmasks private ’10-7ODSJ’ group with current, retired officers

Members,

Thank you to everyone who sent emails and text messages voicing support for the stance your Board of Directors has taken. Standing united through these troubling times is how we will weather this storm.

The FBI will be investigating the‘10-7ODSJ’ Facebook group. Search warrants have either already been served or are being initiated. Furthermore, the Chief’s Office and Internal Affairs Unit have opened multiple Administrative Investigations. More may follow.

I want to clarify misperceptions that have arisen about LDF representation and actions against individual’s membership status.

LDF representation is governed by the Legal Defense Plan document (“the Plan”) and federal law.  Under the Plan, members only receive LDF coverage if the alleged misconduct they engaged in is within the course and scope of their employment as a San Jose police officer. In other words, was the alleged misconduct within their duties and obligations as an officer.

One of the most important things to know and understand is OFF DUTY conduct does not receive LDF representation under most LDF Plans. SJPOA’s Plan explicitly does not cover non-course and scope activity.

For example, LDF sometimes receives requests for coverage from officers facing allegations for receiving a DUI. DUI is not course and scope and does not receive coverage.

In another example, in 2014, an officer posted a series of tweets that the SJPD determined was conduct unbecoming an officer. The officer was terminated. Because tweeting, whether off-duty or on-duty, is not part of the officer’s job duties, he was denied LDF coverage. The officer retained private counsel, at his own expense, and persuaded an arbitrator to reinstate him.

Turning to Facebook posts by participants of 10-70DSJ: The LDF has made a preliminary determination that, like posting tweets, posting on Facebook is not within the course and scope of employment of being a San Jose Police Officer.

                                                               Responses to FAQs

Below are some questions and answers about this issue and our LDF program:

Q: If I was on this FB group and didn’t say, see or support any hateful messages will I be subject to removal from the POA?

A: NO. Your status as a member in good standing will remain.

Q: If I was on this FB group will I be automatically kicked out of the union?

A: NO. If you participated in the hateful behavior, whether it was through a post, a picture, a “like” or a “share,” then we will take action. However, you will have due process rights per the bylaws. You will have the opportunity to present your justification to a three-member Hearing Committee per our bylaws.

Q: If I was on this FB group and didn’t say, see or support any hateful messages and I get contacted by our Chief’s Office in regards to this, will our Union represent me? 

A: All decisions on representation of members will, as always, be decided by the Legal Defense Fund using normal LDF rules. Primarily, LDF considers whether the actions were within the course and scope of your employment with the City. Participating in a Facebook group is not part of your job. If you are being investigated for failure to report the conduct of others, the LDF may consider this course and scope. As always, the specific circumstances of each case is important.

Q: If I was on this FB group and said something hateful or ‘liked’ it, and participated in the hateful speech in some way, will our Union represent me? 

A:       Not unless you can explain to the LDF Committee why your actions were within the course and scope of your actions as a San Jose police officer.

Q: Does the POA cover non-course and scope cases (for example this one where officers are off duty on social media)? 

A:   No. If for example, you are on your own time and are arrested for a DUI, that is not within your course and scope and will not be covered. In 2016 there was a similar incident to what we are currently grappling with. An officer posted social media on his own time and the department moved to terminate him. This was not within the course of scope of his duties and the POA did not provide legal services to this individual.

Q: When a request comes in for Legal Defense coverage, either for an Administrative matter or a Criminal one, what is the process?

A: Here is the process:

  1. Contact Franco Vado, LDF Administrator and request representation;
  2. Member and LDF Administrator makes a preliminary determination if the allegations concerns conduct within the course and scope of employment;
  3. Complex cases are reviewed by the entire LDF Committee, which is made up of 5 Board Members;
  4. The LDF Committee decides whether coverage is provided;
  5. For Criminal matters, coverage is decided by the PORAC Legal Defense Fund.

Q: I saw the video and the original email that came out on Friday and I took it as there will be no coverage of officers who were just on the FB group. Is that correct? 

A:   Not correct. The LDF has made a preliminary determination that officers who participated in or encouraged hateful speech will be considered to have acted outside of the course and scope of their employment. Other members, who did not engage in or encourage hateful speech, and who are being investigated for failure to report those who did, will have an opportunity to present the reasons why they should receive coverage to the LDF Committee.

Q: If I was on the FB group and said or posted something that the Chief’s Office believes to be hateful yet I think it was taken out of context, do I get representation?

A:   Not unless you can establish that your actions were within the course and scope of your employment.

191 U.S. Police Officers have been killed in the Line of Duty so far in 2020…That’s only in the past 7 months…
The total war on police continues…. Now we are being “defunded” and replaced by unarmed social workers or some other sort of civilian worker.  I only hope the city and county employers provide FULL DISCLOSURE to what these folks are signing up for and what they’re actually walking in to…..
These workers (as I understand) will respond to “non criminal” calls such as neighbor problems, roommate problems, evictions, mentally ill persons in crisis, and other sorts of non criminal public assistance.  Here’s just a few cases from the past 7 months:
– 4 Police Officers were murdered while responding to Neighbor Problems and Civil Eviction Service
– 3 Police Officers were murdered while offering non criminal Public Assistance (e.g. disabled vehicle & stranded motorists)
– 1 Police Officer was murdered while responding to a Roomate Dispute (not domestic violence)
– 1 Police Officer was murdered while transporting a Mentally ill subject to a civil court hearing
I won’t even address the possibility of social workers responding to Domestic Violence calls…We’ve lost hundreds of officers
to this – sending an unarmed civilian to these calls would be cruel, terrible, and deadly for everyone involved.
I’ve heard the arguments… “Social Workers know how to talk to people” … “We’ll teach them BJJ so they can defend
themselves” … They can “de-escalate.”  Uuuuhhhh…O.K.?
Persons in a psychotic state and absolute rage don’t want to talk… All the martial arts in the world will help you very little
in a “real” fight….I mean a real life or death struggle with a maniac who wants to murder you – not a “scuffle” at a bar or
family get together…You can train armbars, wristlocks, and chokes (not any more!!! Those are DEADLY according to the government) all you want – it will never prepare you for a truly deadly encounter with no refs, coaches, rules, or boundaries….
I wonder how these civilian responders will handle a 185 lb man in a psychotic state completely naked and covered in blood,
sweat, urine, and feces?  In March 1997, I learned quickly that guys like this don’t want to talk….In fact, he threw 10 of us
around like little children….All the de-escalation and martial arts I knew were completely ineffective…It was worse than any
horror movie I’ve seen – and it’s one of about a hundred memories I wish I didn’t have….
If you know anyone who gets hired for this civilian-response detail, please let them know what they may be signing up for…
I am truly and seriously scared for them…..

Schools boot police off campuses

Districts plan to put savings toward structural budget deficits

ALUM ROCK UNION, EAST SIDE UNION HIGH SCHOOL

By Maggie Angst

mangst@bayareanewsgroup.com

Two San Jose school districts have joined a nationwide movement to eliminate the presence of police officers on campuses by terminating their contracts with the San Jose Police Department.

The Alum Rock Union and East Side Union High School districts’ boards of education unanimously decided Thursday night not to renew yearslong contracts with the city’s Police Department that funded school resource officers and were expiring this summer.

San Jose Unified – the city’s largest public school district – will discuss its contract with the Police Department at the next board meeting Aug. 6.

“Thank you, community, for coming together, thank you for speaking up on behalf of our children. We look forward to walking with you all in truth for the best outcomes for all of our children,” Alum Rock board member Corina Herrera-Loera said at the meeting.

The terminated contracts will free up $100,000 for Alum Rock and $700,000 for East Side Union, which they plan to use to help offset budget shortfalls caused by the coronavirus pandemic and state funding cuts.

The moves align with similar decisions to terminate contracts with the police in schools across the nation, including in San Francisco and Oakland – a response to calls for police reform and redirecting law enforcement funding following the death of George Floyd when a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes last month.

But unlike many of other public school systems, law enforcement and education officials in San Jose took a prior step to diminish the role of officers in schools. At the beginning of 2
018, the city’s Police Department met with education leaders on the city’s east side to update their agreements and make clear that police officers would be at the public high

schools only to ensure safety, not administer punishments to rowdy students.

During the 2019-20 school year, officers who patrolled East Side Union’s schools, which serve more than 26,000 students, issued 31 citations and made five arrests – four of which resulted from fights that broke out.

East Side Union Superintendent Chris Funk said Thursday the law enforcement data clearly indicates that having officers on campus “does not prevent” students from misbehaving and there weren’t enough campus incidents to “warrant having officers on campus.” Police officers still may be used to monitor afterschool events, such as football games where adults and other outside community members may come onto campuses, but they no longer will patrol during regular school hours, Funk said. The district’s previous contract with the Police Department allowed one school resource officer per campus, though because of limited availability and a short-staffed police force only Mount Pleasant and Evergreen Valley high schools consistently saw officers on campus in recent years, Funk said.

Officers also still will be permitted to come onto school grounds for criminal investigations, but board member Pattie Cortese asked administrators to explore an agreement with the Police Department that would require parental notification and presence before interviewing students.

The current sentiment is a stark departure from the push in recent years to increase safety and security measures on campuses following deadly school shootings such as those in Parkland, Florida, and Newtown, Connecticut.

But when a board member pointed that out, Funk said “the chances of an active shooter being on campus is very, very low.” The district will establish a task force in the fall to create new policies for supervision and safety protocols in each of its schools.

Dozens of parents, teachers and community advocates – with newfound backing from elected officials and education leaders – called into the Thursday night East Side Union and Alum Rock board meetings to raise their concerns about officers disrupting student learning and causing fear and anxiety, particularly among students of color.

Change.org petition created by East Side Union families to terminate the agreement between the district and the San Jose Police Department garnered more than 2,100 signatures in two weeks.

Daniella Acosta, a recent graduate of James Lick High School, told the East Side Union board that school resource officers on her campus have brought her – and other students of color – substantial stress.

“I have grown up with police officers knocking on my door since the age of 3 and gradually became a trigger for my anxiety,” Acosta said. “When I see them on campus, I feel traumatized.” Julia Souza, an attorney at the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley, told the Alum Rock board that the district needs to focus on “supporting children and families and not criminalizing them.

“Cutting the contract is a good start – but it’s just that,” Souza said about their agreement with San Jose Police Department. “ARUSD needs to continue implementing wholesale reform of all school interactions with police, especially when staff are calling the police for children with special needs.” In addition to eliminating school resource officers, East Side Union’s board also proceeded with a plan Thursday night to create a new ethnic studies graduation requirement for high school students. Once the framework is developed, the requirement will apply to students entering their freshman year in the fall of 2022.

Alum Rock School District last week voted to create a committee to explore its own options to implement ethnic studies for its students. The district hopes to launch a pilot program for the 2021-2022 school year.

In upcoming meetings, the Alum Rock school board plans to discuss new options for how administrators and teachers should respond to crimes on campus moving forward, such as establishing new policies around student safety and emergency management.

Dear Friends and Readers:

I have been struggling in this time of social unrest. It took more than a week for me to write the following piece that first appeared on my Psychology Today blog on June 20th. (If you’ve read it, I apologize for the repeat). Please read it. Let me know what you think and, if you’re so inclined, feel free to share it with friends and/or on your social media.

This has been a tough week for me personally. I’ve been fielding calls from friends, relatives, and news outlets. They want to know if I can explain police behavior. They point to the egregious, appalling death of Mr. George Floyd and others. Their questions feel like barely disguised accusations, as if I should be ashamed of being a police psychologist for the past 40 years. I rarely walk away from these conversations feeling happy with my responses.

To my recollection, no one has ever asked me to explain why thousands of cops risk their safety every day performing acts of kindness, generosity, and bravery to help perfect strangers.

One of the reasons these conversations are uncomfortable is that the current public discourse about race and policing appears to have boiled down to “Are you with me or against me?” It’s as though I can’t be anti-racism and support law enforcement. Or support the protests without being labeled as turning against all cops.

Modifying words like some, most, much, and many have been replaced by always and never. It’s ironic that sentences using always and never are always wrong and never right.

To help sort my emotions and thoughts, I sought consultation in the works of two graduate school mentors, Dr. Verneice Thompson and Dr. Charles Hampden-Turner. Dr. Thompson, who died in 1993, was an African American. She devoted her career to the study of power, authority and leadership in organizations as they relate to age, gender and ethnicity. She was a great advocate for diversity,  defining it as the ability of people to work together while maintaining rather than disguising or ignoring their differences.

She recognized how compelling it was to focus on individuals and individual acts, but insisted it was more important to concentrate on systemic issues. To her, the real question was “Why does this group need this individual to behave in this way at this point in time?” I think this is what people mean when they say police reform has to go beyond ridding law enforcement of the bad apples.

Dr Charles Hampden-Turner, philosopher and psychologist, taught me that values must be balanced with their opposites. He’d stand in front of a flip chart, marker in hand, and draw lines and circles, creating a ying/yang map of contradictions and connections. “Courage,” he said, “Without caution is recklessness. Caution without courage is cowardice.” His words ring true in this damned if you do, damned if you don’t moment in history, when a thoughtless disbanding of institutions could prove as disastrous as the failure to do anything at all.

So what, as someone who has spent almost four decades counseling cops and trying to humanize their organizations, do I think needs changing?

•Increase the psychological support we give officers. Cops are twice as likely to kill themselves as they are to be killed in the line of duty. The job not only changes people, it traumatizes them. As many as nineteen percent of the force may have diagnosable post-traumatic stress disorder. Many more have symptoms at the less than clinical level.

•Require officers to undergo annual mandatory confidential psychological wellness checks.

•Allow officers to retire without financial penalty at 5, 10 or 15 years.

•Add resilience, self-care, emotional intelligence, and de-escalation tactics to basic training. Lower the emphasis on danger training without compromising officer safety.

•Change the warrior mindset to a guardian mindset.

•Relieve police from dealing with public health problems such as housing, mental illness, and drug addiction.

•Find new ways to measure productivity that emphasizes community interaction and crime prevention as much or more than arrests and traffic stops.

•Hire more women officers. Women are less likely to be involved in complaints of brutality.

As we are learning, racism has contaminated many of our institutions from health care to banking to education. The struggle to undo harm and strengthen equality falls to us all, not just law enforcement. This means we need to stop painting people and groups as all good, all bad or all knowing. We need to listen to each other. This is never easy. Humans are hard-wired to prefer the familiar over the unfamiliar.  We resist accepting new information that challenges our long-held beliefs because it threatens our very identities.

I think we are at a tipping point in the fight against racism. Never before have I seen so many white people protesting, questioning their implicit biases and owning up to the advantages of white privilege. Never before have I seen law enforcement, a culture rarely known to choose change over tradition, respond to community protest with such speed by changing policies and firing bad cops.

There’s resistance, of course. Officers and their families are fearful for their safety and their futures. They are unfairly maligned for social ills and betrayed by the communities they have served.  Some may adapt, others will choose to leave the job. Some are seeking psychological support. Recruiting new officers in this anti-police environment will be a challenge.

Let’s not screw this moment up by demanding allegiance to any single point of view. Let’s brace ourselves for the discomfort that comes from confronting painful truths.  Let’s not take the easy way out by rejecting people and ideas that don’t conform to what we believe.  Human behavior is far too complex. Let us work to solve our problems as Dr. Thompson and Dr. Hampden-Turner have taught, with balance in our values and tolerance and respect for our differences.

Until next time, be well and stay safe
Ellen
