The grand just system is completely dependent on the integrity of the prosecutor and the police. Without that, it's a process designed for abuse.
Brothers N Blu,
I've posted a Blog and contacted 300 of my closest friends. Lets hope it helps. http://forums.evtrib.com/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=649
Is there a mailing address for the TPF and the name of the officer would be helpful. Drop me an email if you choose not to display the info online.
Thank You Mr. Richardson , your willingness to help is great. The fund raiser will take place this Thursday, Aug 25 from 11:00 am to 5:00 PM at the Tempe Police sub-station located at 1855 E. Apache Blvd, Tempe.
You are welcome to attend any portion of the BBQ, visit show your support, and even make a small donation if you so desire. If you could help spread the word through your many contacts, that would be great as well. Tax deductible donations for this brother in need can also be made to the Tempe Police Foundation.
This is a sad time for many members of Tempe PD. Thanks for being a caring brother....
If you want me to help you need to get in contact with me. It takes time to help.
Email me at the address above so we can talk.
I'll do what I can to help.
Bill Richardson -
You profess to be an expert in law enforcement, so I'd like to ask for your opinion and help.
A Tempe Police Detective has terminal cancer. He is truly a "cops Cop". Kind of like what you profess to be. He is only 40 yrs old, and shows up to work to catch bad guys, in between his chemo sessions. His wife is pregnant with twins and recently she lost her job because she needed time off to care for him.
Tempe Police are organizing a BBQ fund raiser on Aug 25 th from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Apache Blvd police sub station to help this brother in need through this most difficult time.
Any help you can offer Mr. Richardson would be really appreciated by all members of the Tempe Police Department. When you look at life as a cop, it's easy to constantly sit back and throw barbs, ridicule and find fault. But, in the end......we Brothers in Blu need to put aside our hard feelings. Instead of crying tears of venom, cry tears of love for great cops like this Tempe Police Detective.
Det. Schoville cried tears of love because she felt she let down HER Brothers N Blu, of which you Mr. Richardson are a member!. She will soon cry like the rest of us Brothers N Blu when God calls home this great Tempe Police Detective.
Until then, any help you can officer this family in need would be greatly appreciated. When this detective answers his "final call", you will have plenty of time god willing to spew venom from your pen and cast condemnation and ridicule towards others whom have made mistakes or crossed you.
May god bless you Mr. Richardson, and may peace come to your heart.
Brothers N Blu
PS.... Please respond to this post and let us "Brothers N Blu" know if you are willing to help with this fund raiser.

The key is, and always has been, proper training for investigators. There are many classes available through state, local and federal agencies on topics such as interrogation techniques, blood spatter analysis, homicide investigation, sexual assault investigation, child sex crimes, etc. In addition, there are some for-profit groups that also offer advance training in investigative skills. That is what Bill is talking about, not about Republicans or Democrats. Besides, the primary positions where politics are injected into law enforcement is with elected county sheriffs who run partisan campaigns to gain their positions. Poor quality police-work and investigations can generally be blamed on faulty policies, a lack of training, poor supervision, and employees who try to take short cuts or focus on a single suspect to the exclusion of other evidence!
Seems Bill has a bone to pick with Republican law enforcement officials and not Democrat ones. Is that right Bill? Are you politicizing law enforcement? Nothing is perfect and nothing will ever be perfect. In a state that has a significant amount of illegal persons that give false information there will be many unsolved cases of criminality. You seem to imply that this is a political problem and not an illegal problem. Not so.
Now the president has opened our borders to allow for more illegals to enter and remain if they don't break a "serious" law. The president's administration will even give them work permits. Now how much more will our law enforcement be encumbered
Why don't you tell us all about the indictment process at the Grand Jury? Anyone ever exposed to that fiasco can tell us how a "ham sandwich" can be indicted! There is no justice in that.............. just sayin
