!!! 70 U.S. POLICE CHIEFS have resigned or retired since January 1, 2010!!!!!
Nancy Lieder had posted some links about 26 police chiefs resigning recently. I spent the day researching and came up with 70 with effective dates after 1/1/2010. There's probably an additional 100 or more between June & December 2009, I'll work on those later.

These had an interesting story:

1. Gaithersburg, MD Gaithersburg Police Chief John King resigned with little explanation last week, leaving his colleagues and community members wondering what happened.
2. Guttenberg, IA Police Chief Resigns After Seven Months on the Job, no reason
3. Harrisburg, PA - Richard Pickles retires after serving a month as Harrisburg police chief
4. Culpeper, VA When Scott Barlow announced two weeks ago he would step down from his job as chief of police with the town of Culpeper, it caught a lot of people off guard, including us.
5. Carbondale, IL - Police Chief Resigns, no reason given
6. Austin, MN - Several Austin City Council members said they were "shocked" by Austin Police Chief Paul Philipp's resignation Tuesday morning.
7. Jonesboro, GA - The City of Jonesboro’s new police chief has resigned, five weeks after being named to the top job.
8. Manassas, VA - found this quote: "I hope the Chief enjoys his retirement. Between his service in the Secret Service, Fairfax and Manassas, he’s earned it."
9. West Covina, CA - Tolich, a 21-year veteran of the force, retired nine years before he was eligible for full retirement benefits, Finance Director Thomas Bachman said.
In an email Tolich sent to members of the department, he tells fellow officers that a personal matter involving him and his family led to the sudden departure.


These were either benign stories or little info given. (Bearing in mind that a seasoned cop could probably make a pretty believable alibi for leaving.)

This, plus the CEOs resigning at an alarming rate and record politicians not seeking reelection in both the U.S. and UK lead me to believe that TSHTF, or soon will.

Last year, more than 100 police were killed in Juarez in attacks blamed on organized crime.

On Friday, the U.S. State Department renewed a travel alert for Americans considering a visit to Mexico.

"The situation in Ciudad Juarez is of special concern," it said. "Mexican authorities report that more than 1,800 people have been killed in the city since January 2008. Additionally, this city of 1.6 million people experienced more than 17,000 car thefts and 1,650 carjackings in 2008."

Yeah, I've been thinking about that. A few scenarios:

1) Existing chiefs have learned via Infragard that TSHTF, and are quitting and heading to safety. The Infragard stories could be true or disinfo to get them to leave, to enable the installation of new world types that would support martial law.

2) Existing chiefs have been forced out, under threat or promise of a safehouse in the event of TSHTF, to install new world types that would support martial law.

I guess it could go either way. If a catastrophe is imminent and they're running to their hidey holes, then 051 is correct.

How about using a little common sense (oh sorry I forgot this is glp!). Remember the baby boomers? Guess what? They are all starting to retire this year (particularly those in upper positions).

not sure it has to do with teotawiki

about 3 years ago i had a very strong dream where 3 factions all responded to something and they didn't know who's jurisdiction it was.


it was the military, fbi/cia, and the police

methinks they are making them all in to one, and some stuff that the chiefs are finding out doesn't sit well with them.
