Welcome to the Tami Jackson Show* War on Cops SPECIAL!
This entire hour is dedicated to both the law enforcement officers who were assassinated in the last two weeks, and to police and sheriffs nationwide who put their lives on the line daily to protect and serve.
My guest for the first 1/2 hour will be Heather Mac Donald
Heather Mac Donald is the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and author of the new book, The War on Cops. She is also a contributing editor of City Journal where her work has covered a wide range of topics, including policing and “racial” profiling, criminal justice reform, race relations, higher education, immigration, among others.
Heather Mac Donald is a frequent media guest on Fox News Channel, CNN, and other national television and radio programs. Her writings have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, New York Times, The New Republic, Partisan Review, The New Criterion, Marshall Project, Public Interest, and other outlets.
A non-practicing lawyer, Mac Donald clerked for the Honorable Stephen Reinhardt, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and was an attorney-advisor in the Office of the General Counsel of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and a volunteer with the Natural Resources Defense Council. Mac Donald has testified before numerous U.S. House and Senate Committees.
Mac Donald holds a B.A. in English from Yale University, graduating with a Mellon Fellowship to Cambridge University, where she earned an M.A. in English and studied in Italy through a Clare College study grant. She holds a J.D. from Stanford University Law School.
Heather and I will discuss her critically important new book, The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe. In The War On Cops Mac Donald ascribes blame on several factors, including the hateful movement Black Lives Matter.
This will be a timely discussion, unveiling more of the pervasive narrative being disseminated at the highest office of government, Barack Obama has done nothing to comfort citizens and everything to fuel the bitter hatred and racism of those attacking our law enforcement officers across the nation.
My guest for the second hour will be Mark Alley
Mark Alley retired in 2015 after 41 years in law enforcement, having worked for the FBI, US Marshal, a reserve with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s department in the early 70s, then worked for a coastal California sheriff’s department where he encountered his own critical incident, came back to Sacramento County full time. Alley worked for 35 years for Sacramento County, assigned to the jails, then transferred to Patrol. He was a Reserve Training Officer, then a full Training Officer in Patrol, a Corporal.
Alley was promoted to Sergeant and worked Communications, then was departmental Rangemaster, Worked Patrol, and then transferred to our EVOC (Emergency Vehicle Operations Course) as its supervisor. Mark ended his career in Patrol as a Sergeant.
All during this time Alley was involved in training. He wrote and rewrote the department’s pursuit and driving policies. His driving policy went up to and was supported by SCOTUS in Lewis v Sacramento, on appeal from the 9th Circuit. He created the entire department’s driver training program which was adopted by another law enforcement agency and two other local fire departments. Mark wrote a book on driver training (out of print) and adapted that book for American soldiers in Iraq to training Iraqi soldiers.
Alley also worked on the vampire killer Richard Trenton Chase case, as well as Sacramento Thrill Killer case and was an adjunct on Zodiac case.
Alley has some very forthright commentary on the assassinations in Dallas and Baton Rouge: we will talk about the War on Cops and President Obama’s abysmal failure to support the law enforcement officers nationwide and failure to lead the attack against Black Lives Matter and its ideology of hate.
This will be an impactful hour. With a heavy heart, I dedicate this show to the men who were assassinated in the last two weeks for no other reason than their white skin and their badges. My prayers are with the loved ones of the fallen and for the protection of those still working the beat in America. God bless and keep you.
