[quote][color=#000000][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif]Seven Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies have been notified that the department intends to fire them for being members of a secret law enforcement clique that celebrated shootings and branded its members with matching tattoos, officials said.[/font][/color]

[color=#000000][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif]The Times reported last year [url="http://articles.latimes.com/2012/apr/20/local/la-me-sheriff-clique-20120420"]about the existence of the clique, dubbed[/url]the Jump Out Boys and the discovery of a pamphlet that described the group’s creed, which appeared to promote aggressive policing and portray officer shootings in a positive light.[/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif]The seven worked on an elite gang enforcement team.[/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif]The Sheriff’s Department has a long history of secret cliques with membership in the groups having reached the highest ranks of the department. In recent years, sheriff’s officials have sought to crack down on the groups, fearing that they tarnished the department’s image and encouraged unethical conduct.[/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif]In the case of the Jump Out Boys, sheriff’s investigators did not uncover any criminal behavior. But sources said the group clashed with the department policies.[/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif]Their tattoos, for instance, depicted an oversize skull with a wide, toothy grimace and glowing red eyes. A bandanna is wrapped around the skull. A bony hand clasps a revolver. Smoke would be tattooed over the gun's barrel for members who were involved in at least one shooting, officials said.[/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif]One member, who spoke to The Times and requested anonymity, said the group only promoted hard work and bravery. He dismissed concerns over the group’s tattoo, noting that deputies throughout the department get matching tattoos. He said there was nothing sinister about their creed or conduct. He read The Times several passages from the pamphlet, which he said, supported proactive policing.[/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif]“We are alpha dogs who think and act like the wolf, but never become the wolf,” one passage stated, comparing criminals to wolves. Another passage stated, “we are not afraid to get our hands dirty without any disgrace, dishonor or hesitation.”[/font][/color][/quote]

It's amazing. These "jump out boys" are a freaking gang. Complete with gang tats and hand symbols etc. Even the name would fit a street crew just fine. They need a better screening test for law enforcement.

LOL! Ever heard of the Blue Knights? Hells Angles with badges. Not all of them mind you... A lot of them are just cops who ride bikes & ain't nothing wrong with that, but get the wrong ones when you're at a biker bar & you'll have a better chance with actual 1%ers.

the NYPD (a street gang) blocks high IQ applicants from becoming cops. None of this is happening by accident. We're dealing with state-sponsored vigilantes.
