I'm praying for an early winter, snow, dead bugs, warm fires, sending my son and grandson out to bring the wood in. We've recently semi-adopted Austin Daimio, who I have made the sergeant character on the Dillingham Police Department in my newest story. I'm over two-thirds into the story, currently covering the fishing strike I once worked there. This strike was one of the worst events I have ever been forced to participate in, as a 5- man department took on over 200 strikers. Boats were set afire in the harbor, along with buildings, houses owned by rivals burned to the ground and shots fired at police by both sides. It was local fisherman against the big companies, and all over the locals demanding a 2-cents more a pound for salmon that summer. Cost of living had gone up, fuel, wages and they had actually come down from their first demand of 5-cents a pound. But still the company people refused, and the trouble began.
We worked 7-12 hour shifts, saw little time off and my shift was the midnight to noon hour shift. The Sergeant and the third patrolman worked the opposite shift from noon to midnight, with the Chief coming in from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. shift. We rode in a single patrol vehicle and for large bar brawls between angry locals and company employees, I began entering the bars with our 12-guage police shotgun, loaded with 8-rounds. Twice I had used the shotgun to pepper the ceiling to get everyone attention when we were outnumbered 16-18 or 19 against the two of us. But shotguns have a real quieting effect on liquored down brawlers. But our back-up 2-man unit always arrived within minutes. Often, the same thing would happen to us and Mona had to shake me awake at 8 or 9 p.m. to send me out for a major skirmish. The biggest problem lay in all the prisoners we were gathering up and the state jail facility only had two cells. At a few points we had as many as 16-shoved forcibly into a cell and another bunch handcuffed to a handrail inside. Soon we were issuing citations for non-violent offenses and assigning them a court date for arraignment. Most of the men and the occasional woman was arrested for felony assault, assault on a police officer, carrying a concealed weapon or possession of drugs; involving heroin, cocaine, various pills that field tested for narcotics, and marijuana. Some of them ended up having arrest warrants on them for other felonies and misdemeanors.
For small bar fights or domestics, of which there were many during this time, we only carried our PR-24 nightsticks, which I had almost learned to be effective with. But while learning it was usually my head that suffered, still it was worth it.
During that very long week, add in a couple extra days, I lost a lot of sleep. ( Bugs have returned to my corner and I'm not talking about the bunny). We lost several homes that were set ablaze, additional boats in dry dock were lost to arson and we had shooters in the harbor boats we had to close in on to take the wanna-be assassins. Vandalism, a childish stunt, was now an adult's way to spread their anger. Men who had grown up together, now separated by jobs, were kicking each others teeth in, or out. Before long, even the wives got into it at the stores and we were called in to break up their fights, which can be really dangerous. You cannot just toss a woman to the floor, or use a PR-24 to the shoulder or thigh to disable them. It's not that they'll begin crying...oh no. They start throwing used dinnerware at you, while you try to break the women up. Not fun.
No, when this strike finally ended, I swore I would resign my job before working another one. I advised my son, John Leroy to do exactly that when he took the job at Dillingham. But he finally got out of there, alive. Bush duty with small departments can be challenging, but you do learn a lot. Most of my felony cases, but not all, are going into this book. Writing it has caused me to relive it and dream about the good old times. Some of those dreams...nightmares, too, have been really interesting for this old man to relive. Hard to believe I used to be so fast, so strong, so handsome....red cape and all.
China's Railway System has been quite busy lately, combining with European countries to set up cargo lines right through Russia and Europe to hopefully someday reach the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, while also making deals with Thailand and Northern India to reach the South China Sea. This would provide China with an ability to deliver cargo, airplane parts, munitions and war material, even troops to over half of the world.
China announces that it is up to India to decide what their position is involving the island issues in the South China Seas. So there has been no response from India. But 2015, India had said all 6 countries involved in the South China Sea issues should have right of way. At this point in time, China has reported it would not be happy with that point of view now.
Military experts feel Chinese Military Facilities in disputed waters of the South China Sea, will be fully operational in 2017.
North Korea's 2nd highest diplomat to England has defected to South Korea.
Russian Topolev-22 Bombers have been deployed to a miry air base in Iran. This is a sign of collaboration between Russia and Iran in their war against Syria. Their 2nd air mission was flown today, dropping bombs on Syria.
New figure on German Government statistics show that 2.1 million people have migrated to Germany in 2015. More than 33,000 immigrants who are supposed to be deported are still in Germany, and being cared for by German taxpayers. Some have destroyed their passports and have now changed their names, saying they are from other countries. Meanwhile, others have gone into hiding, saying they do not wish to be deported. (Why can't this same thing happen in the U.S.? Or is it already happening?)
Arlington, New York- Fire Commissioner issues order for all American flags to be removed from fire department vehicles this includes the big rigs. Order states the flags "are a liability during normal operations for our people and other motorists". Firefighter Union is outraged! ( A small seed for a weed plant can quickly turn into an acre of weeds. How soon before schools and public buildings will be forced to remove their American flags?)
Pentagon reports Russian Military is staging heavy forces border of Ukraine for a possible incursion. But Russia denies same, stating this is for war games, which was the very same excuse Russia used in 2014.
Japan News reports North Korea, upset over U.S. installation of the THAAD Mobile Missile Defense System, has resumed their plutonium production for nuclear power and pursuit of a nuclear weapon. They're reportedly reprocessing spent fuel rods.
Washington Free Beacon reports that a Washington Post writer who recently did a story on the $400 million sent to Iran, saying it to be, "American diplomacy at its finest", failed to disclose that he was on the payroll of an organization where he emerged as a Chief Architect in the White House Pro-Iran "Echo-Chamber" Plan. ( Tangled web we weave....) added to this story was a report that a week later, the U.S. sent an additional $1.3 billion to Iran. (could add a lot of things here, but I won't.)
Germany's Chancellor Merkel is now urging the Chief Executives of Germany larger companies to hire immigrants, while Turkish asylum application soar upward in Germany.
China News Services report that the placing of THAAD Missile Defense System in South Korea is causing China's politico and military a lot of problems and China wants them to be removed. Meanwhile, China is placing surface to air missiles and other weapons on the illegally held islands in South China Sea. ( Saber Rattling, but who will give in? Bush wouldn't give an inch, but Obama....? It's not just the political party it comes down to the man. Pres. Kennedy was a Democrat and he didn't flinch before the Russians over the Cuban Missile Crisis. Can Obama do the same?)
(Warning- this story is not for the light of heart). Islamic Russian Priest has called for all women to undergo Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) . Ismail Berdiev is on the Russia's Presidential Council for Cooperation. The Priest admitted procedure was not in fact a part of Islam, but FGM was needed to fight "Sexual Immorality". A Report by a Human Rights Foundation showed how FGM was currently taking place predominantly 5 mountainous regions. There the FGM was carried out mostly on girls 3 years old and younger. But, sometimes girls as old as 12 years old have been forced to undergo the FGM. ( Personally, I do not care what the religion is, but this is a clear violation of human rights should be ended immediately by the United Nation's Police Force. If this is not Islam, then Muslims should help in the ending of this practice.)
England- (Hard to believe this one), Muslim Brotherhood, a known terrorist organization that committed heinous acts in Egypt, is now seeking Asylum in England. Egypt warns England not to be come involved, or to grant asylum to these terrorists. Such an event could drastically effect the relationship between the two countries. (But why would England even consider such a thing? Is there a threat involved by England's own Muslims, who want the Brotherhood "You take them and grant asylum, or we burn down London.")
Russian Navy has assigned one of their Missile Corvettes, (P-32), ( muck like a U.S. Destroyer Class), to Egypt.
Last Story Today: Mr. George Soros, Billionaire, Socialist and self-proclaimed Atheist, born a German Jew, made his fortune manipulating foreign currencies and in doing so, watched with a smile on his face as these countries withered and died. Mr. Soros has an open door relationship at the White House is now w dropping millions of dollars into media propaganda to improve Hillary's image and the resettling of Muslims in the United States. Mr. Soros now plans to help President Obama with a plan to bring in 100,000 more refugees into the U.S. without actually calling them Refugees, by using a different VISA Program. ( Why is our President trying so hard to lie to us, to run an illegal scheme. Is Obama attempting to develop a Muslim Army? He is already allowing Muslim/militia fortresses in secretive wooded areas, where ATF officers have been told to ignore. What happened to all that .22 ammo that vanished off the shelves for months, was there a new automatic rifle created? Patriot News sites reported United Nations blue and white military vehicles being seen in Southeast U.S. Same sort of thing that happened under two former Presidents , but then the UN vehicle left the U.S. after the election. Lots of question that can easily transform a person into a conspiracy theorist. But answers are needed for some of these questions, the rest you can add peanuts and chocolate too to make a nut bar.
However, George Soros is a purely evil man, who desires to control everyone and everything. He finally fled to the U.S. after causing so many problems in Europe. He nearly destroyed Greece, Spain and Italy..
All for now. God Bless. Maybe the right times are coming soon, the Words are in the Book. BILL
