    California Lawmakers at it again

    To amend title 10, United States Code, to provide police officers, criminal
    investigators, and game law enforcement officers of the Department
    of Defense with authority to execute warrants, make arrests, and carry
    firearms.

    SPEECH OF
    HON. BOB FILNER
    OF CALIFORNIA
    IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
    MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011
    Mr. FILNER. Mr. Speaker, I recently introduced the Department of Defense and Civilian Law Enforcement Coordination Act of 2011 (H.R. 324). My bill would amend federal law to permit Department of Defense law enforcement officers to better coordinate and cooperate with civilian law enforcement agencies. I drafted this legislation in cooperation with the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) because many DOD law enforcement officers in my district have informed me that they are prohibited from basic coordination and cooperation with civilian agencies near DOD facilities. We need to ensure that federal, state, and local law enforcement are able to work together to apprehend criminals and to prevent and solve crimes. I hope that my colleagues will join me in co-sponsoring this important legislation.


    Why do we need this?? How will this ensure cooperation with civilian agencies near DOD facilities? Sounds like a leadership problem to me.

    The problem with America is stupidity.
    I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
