It Begins… Illinois Superintendent Will Hand Out Yellow ID Badges Based on Vaccination Status

Galesburg, IL School District 205 Superintendent John Asplund sent this shocking email out to staff members announcing a new ID badge policy.

School staff now have the option to change from the customary white ID badge to a yellow ID badge to indicate that they have received the covid vaccine.
They are actually going to use Yellow Badges for identification.

Here is a screenshot sent out to school staff members to announce a new staff ID badge policy.

From a reader.

This policy is currently only limited to school staff and does not apply to students.

This is horrific and abhorrent.

No school, employer, or any other type of entity has any right to stigmatize people or make people in any way display any sort of mark or indicator that communicates their vaccination status or any other health or personal criteria that is no one else’s business to know.

This policy will prompt a lot of bullying, ostracism, and cliquish behavior.

This is eerily similar to how the Nazis made Jews wear a yellow Star of David to publicly indicate that they were Jewish.

This needs to be strongly protested and promptly stopped.

The passage in the email that states, “At this point in time, proof of vaccination does not give you any additional benefits…” is striking to me.

What is the point of getting vaccinated if you still have to wear a mask? Making vaccinated people wear a mask is stupid and senseless.

Many people who got the vaccine did so with the understanding that the vaccination would allow them to live life without being masked.

This just shows that you can’t comply or bargain your way out of tyranny. This lesson has been demonstrated throughout history.

We always had the right to live mask free regardless of vaccination status.

Netflix Family Show Lampoons Racist White Cops as ‘Bullies with Badges and Guns’

If it weren’t for cliches and stereotypes, there would be little to note about Netflix’s Dad Stop Embarrassing Me, which began streaming on April 14, a series of eight half-hour episodes. Comedian/actor Jamie Foxx tries to make a comeback on the small screen but mostly fails to be amusing or entertaining.

The story centers around Brian Dixon (Foxx) and his multi-generational black family who live under his roof (sound familiar?). His father, Pops (David Alan Grier), and sister, Chelsea (Porscha Coleman), are joined by Dixon’s daughter, Sasha (Kyla Drew), after the death of her mother. Brian and Sasha try to build a relationship as there was none before her mother’s death.

The characters are over the top. Brian takes Sasha to a therapist for counseling so that they can work on their relationship and she turns out to be a sex therapist. In another episode, the family’s church pastor is a money-grubbing showboat who continually asks for money from the members to support his extravagant lifestyle. There is a bartender character in one episode who wears a blonde wig and is a Trump supporter. He speaks to a Trump bobblehead and says before laughing: “I don’t care what the count is, you’re still my president. I love your hair. Now that you’re not president, you can come to Rusty’s and we can grab all the …”

Most of the episodes center around father-daughter issues as Brian learns to be a single father, but the last two episodes take an unnecessary dark twist. In episode 7, titled “#RichDadWokeDad, Brian’s best friend Johnny, a police officer, is off-duty and in a convenience store with Brian and Pops. An armed robbery takes place and at first Johnny tries to hide but is finally convinced to act after Brian shames him into doing so. The robber isn’t afraid, though, as he notes Johnny is out of uniform, therefore off duty.

He mentions that off-duty cops don’t carry armed weapons. Johnny agrees with him and the robber gets away. Then, as Johnny is explaining to Brian and the store manager that his revolver wasn’t loaded, it discharges into the ceiling. It was a ridiculous scene meant to make a law enforcement officer look like a bumbling idiot. Johnny earns the nickname of the “Cowardly Cop” after that and a video of the incident go viral and he is suspended from the police force.

In the final episode, titled “#MaybeltsBAYBelline”, the issue of police profiling and abuse rears its ugly head. Sasha, her friend Zia (Johnny’s daughter), and Sasha’s boyfriend Rahim are in Rahim’s father’s Mercedes. Rahim’s father is a judge. The kids are followed by a police car on the way home from picking up food. They turn on flashing lights in the driveway and the kids question what is going on.

While none of the kids are cooperative, Rahim is particularly obnoxious. He tells the two white cops they are on private property and to get out. When Sasha and Zia start to go inside the cops tell them to freeze and no one will get hurt. Rahim says no one will get hurt because no one did anything wrong. Sasha pulls out her phone and tells the cops she is videotaping them.

When Rahim asks them to leave everyone alone, one cops responds, “Shut your mouth, boy. We got a call about a luxury car that fits this description casing the neighborhood. You steal this car?” Rahim tells him it’s his father’s car. Then he adds, “Who you calling boy, boy?” So, Rahim is thrown to the ground and handcuffed. Rahim says, “You done messed up now, man. My pops is a judge.”

The girls freak out and they are treated the same when Sasha refuses to stop filming and put her phone away. She put the video live on Instagram. That is when Brian and Chelsea see the video of what is happening at their house. They rush home to straighten it all out.



One particularly stupid part of this storyline is when the cops recognize Johnny as he gets to the scene. One calls him the Cowardly Cop and asks him for his autograph. By the end of this ridiculous scene, the other cop says he guesses he’ll see Johnny at the policeman’s ball. Johnny tells him he is quitting the police force: “I took an oath to serve and defend. All I see here is a bunch of bullies with badges and guns and I’m not about that.”

It turns out Brian’s new white neighbors were the ones who called the cops. They saw Brian and Rahim in the Mercedes earlier as Brian tested Rahim’s driving skills, including his reflexes with sudden stops, and called the cops, thinking they were casing the neighborhood. At the end of the episode, Sasha tells Brian she wants to be a civil rights attorney.

The series misses the boat on comedic entertainment. The writers use Pops for the raunchier material and Brian just looks clueless most of the time. The series is embarrassing for everyone.

California bills would take badges from misbehaving officers

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – California would start licensing law enforcement officers, create a way to end their careers for misbehavior including racial bias, and make it easier to sue them for monetary damages under an expanded version of legislation that died at the end of last year’s legislative session, supporters said Tuesday.

California is one of just four states without a way to decertify police officers, alongside Hawaii, New Jersey and Rhode Island.

“These are officers who have abused their authority and violated the public trust, and we all agree they must be held accountable,” said state Sen. Steven Bradford, who is carrying the most sweeping of several decertification proposals. “We (in California) claim to be a leader in all things – we shouldn’t be an outlier when it comes to police reform.”

The bill by Bradford, who heads the Senate Public Safety Committee, would require the state’s Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training to issue each officer a proof of eligibility or basic certificate. Currently, the state licenses more than 200 professions and trades including doctors, lawyers, and contractors, but not law enforcement officers.

Bradford’s bill would give the commission the power to investigate officers and revoke their eligibility for wrongs including using excessive force, sexual assault, making a false arrest or report, or participating in a law enforcement gang. Some of those investigations could be retroactive under his revised proposal.

Police could also lose their badges for “acts demonstrating bias” based on race, religion, sexual orientation or mental disability, among other criteria.

Bradford said in his bill that three of every four unarmed persons killed by police were people of color.

“Decertifying police officers (who abuse their power) … is key to building trust between the police and the communities and changing the culture of policing in this state,” said Cephus Johnson, a criminal justice reform advocate widely known as Uncle Bobby X whose nephew, Oscar Grant, was killed by transit police in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2009.

Bradford’s measure is co-authored by Sen. Toni Atkins, his fellow Democrat who heads the California Senate, signaling her support.

Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon previously said he also backs the concept, but there are three competing bills awaiting action in his chamber.

Two bills, one by Assemblyman Jim Cooper, himself a former sheriff’s captain, and the other by fellow Democratic Assemblyman Rudy Salas, both have a much stronger law enforcement representation on the statewide panel considering decertification than would Bradford’s bill. Neither includes the licensing or lawsuit provisions in Bradford’s bill.

The third bill, by Republican Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham, would require local law enforcement agencies to complete misconduct investigations even if the officer resigns. The practice of ending investigation after an officer resigns has allowed questionable officers to simply move to another department.

A related bill by Assemblyman Ash Kalra would require law enforcement agencies to disqualify officers who have been members of a hate group or participated in hate group activities or public expressions of hate, though critics said the bill’s definition is overly broad.

The latest efforts come after Bradford’s previous attempt died without a vote in August despite national outrage over the death of George Floyd in the custody of Minneapolis police and support from entertainers including Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Robert De Niro and Kim Kardashian West.

Law enforcement unions and associations said again Tuesday that they support having a way to permanently weed out bad officers. But they objected last year to Bradford’s proposed makeup of a nine-member disciplinary board they said would have been biased against police.

Bradford’s revised bill includes two current or former officers on the board, one fewer than last year, a change he said was needed because the panel “should be a reflection of the community.”

California Police Chiefs Association president Eric Nunez and unions representing officers in Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Jose all said the debate comes down to whether officers deserve what Nunez called a “fair and judicious process.”

“(U)nfortunately Senator Bradford is intent on making a political point instead of creating good policy,” the unions said in a joint statement.

Brian Marvel, president of the rank-and-file Peace Officers Research Association of California, said Bradford‘s bill “would potentially penalize even the most respectful officers for placing themselves in harm’s way to keep our families and communities safe.”

It would make it easier to sue police and their employers for depriving plaintiffs of their constitutional rights, but would strengthen the requirement that governments pay for civil penalties against their employees.

The bill says current limited immunity from lawsuits “too often lead to officers escaping accountability in civil courts, even when they have broken the law or violated the rights of members of the public … especially (with) the use of excessive force.”
