Freedom Of Speech

My photo
People can wrap themselves inside the Constitution, spew anything they choose to say, stick their tongue out in your face and declare you can't do anything about what they said. They have Freedom of Speech. Right? Yes! However, Freedom of Speech, comes married to the responsibility for ones own actions. If you say it, write it or draw it, be ready to defend it. Cower in silence, you abdicate your freedom and allow the bullies and censurers to win.

4 Cop Killers Up For Parole

February 26, 1988 was a cold day and it would prove to be the last day of life for NYPD Police Officer Edward Byrne.  Four cold blooded killers on the orders of a convicted drug dealer planned and executed Officer Byrne assigned to the 109th Precinct in New York City as he guarded a witness's home.  Eddie was my friend.

This November these killers are eligible for parole and every two years thereafter.  Their names are: Philip Copeland, Todd Scott, Scott Cobb, and David McClary.  As I write this, numerous campaigns are writing to the New York State Parole Board to protest against any parole for these men.

I first met Eddie Byrne in July 1986 when we both attended the  NYC Police Academy, he was in my sister company.  At meal times we all gathered around the picnic table in the small pizzeria around the corner studying and quizzing each other.  During Gym, when we lined up to run laps being the shortest, I would be at the rear of my platoon and Eddie being the tallest was at the front of his.  Often he was on my heels pushing me to be my best and when the ranks were reversed, I paid him back in kind, often hitting the back of his sneakers to let him know I was right there.

After graduation, I went to the 90th Precinct in Brooklyn and he to the 109th in Queens. Of course promises of keeping in touch don't always get kept, but the rumor mills do let you know how friends are doing.  The Sergeant's Exams were coming up in 1988 and everyone was hitting the books and we knew someone like Eddie would surely ace the exam and become a "Boss".

On that tragic February day, Eddie Bryne reported for a midnight tour of duty.  It was my RDO (Regular Day Off).  In the 109, a brave citizen was targeted by local drug dealers, because he dared to keep the police notified of suspicious activity in his neighborhood and had the audacity to be willing to testify against them.  The witness Arjune, a Guyanese immigrant, who believed in an America based upon justice and the law, was paid back by having his home fire bombed twice and numerous threats were made against him.  Meanwhile Howard "Pappy" Mason who ran the drug business in Arjune's neighborhood was convicted and sitting in prison.  To intimidate the locals, Mason wanted to "ice a cop" and ordered a killing.  His partner Lorenzo "Fat Cat" Nichols was implicated but never convicted in the plot.  Four men, decided to act on Mason's orders and Copeland, Scott,  Cobb, and McClary on two separate occasions cased the home of Arjune, but called off the hit.  The first time was because the officer was a female and the second, because the officer was black.

That evening at Roll Call, Officer Byrne was assigned the Fixed Post outside of Arjune's house and given a Chevrolet Caprice that was used as the K-9 Patrol Car.  In a K-9 car the rear seat is removed and a hard plastic & wire cage is installed so the Officer Handler can place the dog inside.  The construction at the time was bulky and inhibited the driver and passenger side field of vision in almost all areas behind the front seat. He had limited view through the rear window.  No partner was assigned to Officer Byrne and he was dispatched to the post to guard Arjune's house.

Midnight tours on Fixed Posts tend to be quiet.  The mere presence of the police often serves as a deterrent to criminal activity.  Officer Byrne to fill the quiet hours brought his study guide for the upcoming Sergeant's Exam.  At 3:03 AM the Scott, Cobb and McClary pulled up along side Officer Byrnes Patrol car and exited.  It is believed it was Todd Scott who knocked on the passenger side window for Officer Byrne's attention as David McClary creeped up on the drivers side.  Scott Cobb acted as lookout and driver.  Copeland directed the entire plan and took the orders from Mason.  McClary fired five (5) shots into the back of Eddie Byrnes head.

Officer Byrne was rushed to Mary Immaculate Hospital where he died of his wounds. He was only 22 years old. he lived at home with his mother and father who was retired from NYPD.  His brothers were also "On The Job".  Eddie was going to college at night and had not yet married, but dreamed of a family of his own.



The effect of the brazen, yet cowardly murder on not just the citizens of New York City and it's police force, but on the nation was to embolden them into action against these criminals.  President Ronald Reagan personally called the Byrnes Family to offer condolences.  G.H. Bush carried Eddies shield when he campaigned in 1988 for the Presidency.  The actions initiated by "Pappy" Mason resulted in the uniting of the community with NYPD to form TNT (Tactical Narcotic Teams) and SNEU (Street Narcotics Enforcement Units).


Eddie Byrne was a friend, a colleague and dedicated Police officer.  We graduated the Police Academy together.  On the night he was executed, he was studying for the Sergeant's Exam.  A bright future in NYPD was extinguished.  A family was devastated.  Friends and colleagues were bereaved. And not just a city, but a nation was horrified by the actions of this cold blooded murderer.

Early release will never unring this bell.

Right To Life?

To begin this debate took a long number of years, for me to make my decision.  I was in my teens when Roe V Wade was being decided.  I was brought up Roman Catholic and abortion as not an option. But, as a student of public schools I had a lot of listening to both sides of an debate.  Then the social revolution occurred in the 60's, 70's and 80's.  Social mores changed, but conservatism didn't.  In the end, it has been my anchor.

Have I always made the best decisions in my life? No one does.  As I walked the path of youth
 into adulthood, there have many if's and what if's.  Thankfully, my choices and at times luck has brought me to the moral right of most of my decisions. With half of a century on this Earth, I can say, the unborn need advocates.

The first fallacy that we must dissolve is that a woman has control over her body when she is pregnant.  She is controlling not only her body, but that of the unborn child. Don't let anyone let them call it a fetus, or zygote. It is a child! It feels pain, it moves in the womb. It is alive.

If this is a fallacy, then why do so many states now have live for killing fetuses in the commission of a crime?

Yes, you'll bring up rape, incest & health of the mother.  For rape & incest, counseling should be the 1st option before abortion.  Health of the mother is between the mother, her family and the Doctor.  Government has no businesses in any of these decisions,  These are private and personal circumstances. 

How many children of rape & incest have gone on to be our leaders and churners of our society?  Should they be discarded as scum of the Earth?  If your parent decided you would not be born blue eyed with blonde hair, you should be aborted?  Where do we draw the line on life or death.

Do we extend the right to life to those who are no longer productive in society? You can't meet our demand as to what you should be born as, we abort you.  Now, you are too old or feeble to produce, we cut off care an dlet you die early.

Oh - Yes - Obamacare!
