This is a celebration of the hardworking folks at TPD who can compress the fabric of space-time fitting a 10 hr work shift into a 2 hr basket ball game (not including game practice--also considered a work shift). Do you think SEATTLE would pay their policemen to participate in a charity organization fundraiser? I think not. Shows how much they care right?

No, Seattle would pay them holiday OT for 12 hrs and add an $80 per point scored bonus.

I just got a $798 ticket from TPD for dropping someone off in the bus lane at the Tacoma dome station. I think their new donation strategy is over-fine the fuck out of people in Tacoma.

The Hilltop Action Committee is a bunch of bullshit gentrifying homeowners anyway, fuck them and their basketball games.

ouch. yeah it's best to drive around to the side 15min loading zone for pickups/dropoffs.

You forgot to bribe the officer. A crisp C-note would have gotten you off the hook.

Don't like the police?
Next time call a hippie.

Subject: Breaking News -- Tacoma Chief Ramsdell to step down


Tacoma police Chief Don Ramsdell to announce departure

According to New Takhoman sources, Tacoma Police Chief Don Ramsdell is going to step down rather than disciplining Assistant Chief Bob Sheehan for paying city cops to play basketball on the taxpayer’s dime to raise money for the Hill Top Action Collation.

After a nine month internal affairs investigation a two ring binder report is now sitting on Ramsdell’s desk for adjunction.

Word has it that Ramsdell would rather take a power than take Sheehan on.

And why should he be so afraid of the Bobster you might ask Dear Readers.

Because Sheehan is the keeper of all of Brame’s deep dark secrets.

If one cracks they all go down and that is why Chief Don is not willing to take on his, YES, his command staff.

Ask Sheehan why he entered Brame’s apartment 7 years ago calming to secure a crime scene before the search warrant was ever issued. Do you really think he will talk?

But this reporter has it all.

If Ramsdell rolls on Sheehan Sheehan will roll on Ramsdell.

In a heartbeat Dear Readers.

TNT FOLLOW UP:

Internet Web publisher John Hathaway reported today that Tacoma Police Chief Don Ramsdell was stepping down.

In a conversation with The News Tribune this morning, Ramsdell said he was not retiring and has no plans to do so any time soon. For one thing, the chief hasn't reached retirement eligibility
