When I saw the April 22, 2011 post by Mike Shields on the FOP website (link here.) I wasn't surprised to see him melt down in a temper tantrum over some perceived "slight."
How did I know? Am I prophetic? Hardly ... For some unknown reason, probably a high-degree of immaturity, Shields is fascinated on knowing the identities of myself, and SCC. I know because people have told me that Shields and his trolls routinely dig around for information on your-humble-narrator.
I knew that there was something "off" about this guy back when he was following Ron Huberman around with a video camera. Who does stunts like that? Was in sensational? Sure. Was it productive? No.
It did put the Light Weight's name and face in the sparkly marquee for a few minutes ... and enough rank and file folks figured that they'd pull the lever for him this last time around.
I'm not going to repost the Light Weight's whiney drivel, I have too much rerespect for my readers than that.
SCC already bitch-slapped the resident Light Weight in his April 26th blog post (story here.)
Time will tell, but I personally think Shields will prove to be a lousy president. He's already putting his sanctum sanctorum in place - his mini-Star-Chamber, promising to lead his little band of fellow travelers into the Promised Land.
So from the Light Weight's public comments so far we KNOW that he:
1. Believes conceal / carry is not a platform that the FOP should be endorsing or commenting on. Eventhough every municipality that passes conceal / carry has seen a drop in violent crime.
2. Believes it is a good thing that Big Labor (SEIU, AFSCME, NFT, NEA, INEA and the AFT) and Big Government link arms and engage in the thug-tactics that co-opt the taxpayer's private property, and are bankrupting our state.
3. You can deduce from the first two points that the Light Weight has not read, or understood, the constitution.
Shields needs to get organized, focused and professional FAST because going after anonymous police bloggers is not what he was elected to do. He claims that spending a year in 011 made him 'the real police.' But if he's such a "hard-charger" why did he transer to 019? Apparently in the Light Weight's book if you haven't worked in 007 or 011 then you're NOT the "real police."
He must have gotten tired of all that "guns-drugs-and-glory" in 011 and figured he'd "learned it all" by then.
Don't blame me - I voted for Frank DeMaria. Maybe Frank can take the kid under his wing and mold him into something useful.
