False Reporting: A True Epidemic in Policing

This week the guys get into another elephant in the room (or maybe 5 elephants): False reporting, a true epidemic in Policing.  (link to Ayman's article on Havok Journal Here)

The issue has a domino effect across every day life. The guys let it all out. 

Pete also asked Ayman if he wanted a hug.  Maybe it happened maybe it didn't.

Oh and there was a ton of "Squirrel" going on but it all tied together. Thank God (putting the drink down now)

MidweekRoll call: We discuss Ofc Deon Joseph and his awesome letter to Lebron

May 5, 2021

This week's midweek roll call the biyus give a tip of the hat to OFC Deon Joseph.

So we all know Lebron made a post - in haste - and instantly regretted it. However the internet never forgets.  This LAPD Officer wrote him a letter which made a hell of a lot of sense.  The guys discuss it and have some thoughts on the tool, i mean Lebron.   It may have gotten bit heated for a sec but everyone survived.

Full episode: BAD Policies and Cops fill the breach | HOLD THE LINE !

April 18, 2021

This week the guy focus on Aymans' article " Cops fill the breach left by bad Policies".  Really going to nail the description by this excerpt from the article found on Havok Journal .

"I have said it before and I’ll say it again, the anger and hate towards law enforcement is the sign of a society falling apart. When an officer goes to get coffee, the officer is hypervigilant. The officer worries if the server is going to spit in their coffee or food. Both law enforcement officers today are getting treated like Vietnam veterans in the 60s. The police have become the enemy of the people. Politicians use officers as scapegoats for their failed laws and policies."

The greatest trick the devil ever played was convince the word he doesn't exist.

What has happened in our society? Internet experts, keyboard warriors, "backyard beckys" place blame and concoct stories when they have no idea what has really happened. Politicians are first to soap box because they are SCARED of the truth, while voting to LET OUT CHILD MOLESTERS . We are all about free speech - we have bled for it - we will continue to bleed for it, our brothers and sisters have DIED for it.... But what happens in a society when speech turns to rhetoric, misinformation turns into policies that change the shape of Policing..of our nation?

They guys discuss everything going on. Feelings may be hurt. FB medals of Valor stripped. Be warned.

E14: Ego - #1 Killer & butthurt disease symptom

E14: Ego - #1 Killer & butthurt disease symptom

February 28, 2021

"Ego, the number one killer & the number one cause of.... butthurt"

Ego: We all have it.  Some lack it, some have too much for their own good. 

Ayman's article goes in depth into why ego can be (cant stress that enough) a foundational issue in law enforcement.  The Guys explore dark corners of EGO and talk about people that got butthurt while reading said article.

A few were clearly projecting their inadequacies, and a few you can tell graduated from a certain "university" mentioned in the show. 

This is what happens when social media has conditioned us to be "skimmers" and eager to get our voice heard while slamming away at a keyboard eagerly awaiting a medal.

FB medals of Valor will be given out shortly. 

Reading comprehension needs to be pushed a little harder... even with adults. 

Reminds me of the old commercial: "Hooked on phonics worked for me!" - if you don't get it then whatever, E.A.D.

There are many seminars, speakers and classes concerning leadership, how to lead and how to supervise. There are a ton of books out there regarding these very topics. People pay hundreds of dollars to listen to someone tell them how to lead. We are not supervisors at work, but we will provide a lens into why we differentiate between bosses and leaders.

Powerfull episode: We've all been there.  A brother or sister in blue is murdered. The funeral is painfulThe silence is deafening. Our brother /sister was taken from us.  Taken from their family.  For some, the world stops - it almost SKIPS A BEAT. Like a flutter in the heart. A bad one. 

This episode Ayman and Pete go deep into the issue and discuss everything. 

They reiterate that that other side of murder (suicide) is just as dark.  So don't hesitate, reach out, talk - the guys are always here for everyone.

We would rather talk to you for an hour at 3am and really LISTEN to you - than talk about you at your funeral. If you had a bad day, if you want to bit@h and moan, or talk about a brother or sister you lost - we are here.

***Special Episode!

We touched on Police Reform on a previous episode.  We got a ton of questions from you all, so what did we do? 

We brought in the big guns. The heavy hitter. 

...a true Expert in the field: Attorney John Sofis Scheft from Law Enforcement Dimensions

Peter said the word "unleashed" 4 times.  When we asked him why he told us take a long walk off a short pier. 

Attorney Scheft has trained 10s of thousands of Police Officers (literally) and is renowned as the leading legal expert in just about anything related to law enforcement. 

We break down the NEW police reform law, POST, and John answers all of our questions. 

It was truly an honor to have him on the podcast. 

Attorney Scheft: we are sorry - we can't control Ayman and Peter- we know they gave you a headache. Our apologies.

m7: Midweek roll call -2 officers: 1 Bringing life and 1 saving ummm, life?

m7: Midweek roll call -2 officers: 1 Bringing life and 1 saving ummm, life?

January 13, 2021

This weeks midweek roll call highlights Officer Zack Hall from the Agawam (MA) police. Officer Hall helped bring life into this world - and what a mighty fine job he did!

We also highlight the stunning search and rescue operations in Belfast ME where there was a full call out, and they deployed air and marine support services to preserve the life of an animal that had "gone off the deep end" (?)  Ayman MAY have had a few drinks - we are airing it anyway. 

GOD HELP US

Awesome job everyone.

E8: Live to fight another day.  Sometimes things aren't what they seem. 

Perception+ awareness+ training is key in our professions. 

Don't take it personal, and self assess. 

We touch on Terry v Ohio with some opinions and insight.

M6: Midweek Roll call: Nashville Badas$ery , and some fitting METAL.

January 6, 2021

This weeks midweek roll call gives a HUGE shoutout to the men and Women Officers of the Nashville POLICE who ran towards the danger to secure lives.  Apparently as$wipe detonated his device early (thank GOD).

There is some really good MUSIC in here too. We stopped head-banging to record. 

KUDOS to these Officers.

Why Police Training Must Include Counter-Ambush Techniques

Here we are - thousands of our brothers and sisters DEAD and we still yet refuse to provide the necessary training. 

Ayman & Pete talk about it.  The elephant in the room. We also talk about "badassery" by our brothers and sisters under fire. We also talk about awareness, violence of action, necessary training, and mindset. 

As always special thanks to Havok Journal

E6: Will Racism ever DIE? Is it real? Have we changed? | Episode 6 | Project Sapient

December 27, 2020

Will Racism ever die? Have we changed? Is it real? Are we ignoring it? 

Episode 6 Ayman and Pete look at Racism and explore all angles and arguments, using Aymans' Havok Journal article.. 

"We are going to rock you, flip you, twist you, Frap your body till your bones hurt" (5 bucks to first person who tells us who I just quoted).

We are going to discuss possible scenarios, possible mistakes we are making as a society, our past cultures, our current culture and really get into it. 

Word of warning:  a lot of things we discuss may or may not be our own opinions. They are meant to induce thought.  We are using intelligence and information drawn from various sources (media, social media, idiots, et al)

E5: The OATH(s), Sir Robert Peele & The secret squirrel we interview

E5: The OATH(s), Sir Robert Peele & The secret squirrel we interview

December 20, 2020

Episode 5:

The OATH(s), Sir Robert Peele & The secret squirrel we interview.

This week is pack full of GOOD info, Knowledge via Sir Robert Peel, undiagnosed ADHD, big ass beer mugs and a call from a buddy we shall call: "GRU".

You know the OATH.. Don't act like you don't..  Some of ya'll have given it in the Military, some in Law Enforcement.  Regardless of WHERE it was given- you raised your hand and promised... Sometimes in front of hundreds of people. Have you forgotten? 
 
We also have a buddy of ours, who we shall call "GRU" (yea maybe there is an evil genius reference to the kids movie Minions there)
It's funny, the only time we have actually used the Censorship button was in this episode to hide "Gru's" identity. 
Pete acknowledges his f-up. 
 Gru talks to us what he is seeing from the outside looking in.  He is not Military. Not law enforcement - but let's just say he has a very good eyes "looking" in. 
 
Gru is the true patriot that always tells it like it is.  
 
ANYWAY- ENJOY!
 
Special thanks to Havok Journal https://havokjournal.com/ and BIG ASS BEER MUGS.
The Uber driver wouldn't drive Ayman home he was THAT obliterated.

Police reform + internal issues + Horse Soldier Bourbon | Episode 4 | Project Sapient

December 13, 2020

Police reform + internal issues + Horse Soldier Bourbon= an episode you don't want to miss. 

Heres what happened step by step (timeline) : 

Pete and Ayman decide to record E4.

Ayman:  "i have THIS " (Produces a bottle of Horse Solider Bourbon).

Pete: "Ummm, YES, ill get the ice."

Ayman: "lets talk about police reform, shitbags and bourbon."

Pete: "F-it.  YES"

An hour later an episode was formed.

There is some cringing involved - this is beyond our control. 

Special props to Havok Journal and Horse Soldier Bourbon (we aren't profiting or endorsed from either - we just love these guys).

Our Demons. Our Angels. Our Salutes | Midweek Roll call E2 | Project Sapient

Our Demons. Our Angels. Our Salutes | Midweek Roll call E2 | Project Sapient

December 9, 2020

20 minute Midweek Roll call Episode 2:

Our Demons. Our Angels. Our Salutes.  This midweek episode focuses on the LIGHT, when darkness consumes us.

Without demons, there are no ANGELS - thats the truth. But good triumphs, ALWAYS.

If we have the will to survive, and the will to preserve life- anything is possible. 

We highlight a story from Rocky Mountain PBS about an amazing Pueblo Officer and Army veteran who did an incredible job talking down a fellow veteran from a "worst case scenario".  You can really picture this scene in your head.

Project Sapient is committed to highlighting work done in God's grace - coupled with the right training and right people. 

Sapient's resources will be available on our website soon.  

Good job corporal - if anyone knows him please get us some contact info.

Smooth Sailing w/Ayman Just Fk’n kidding. E3 is All about Equipment

Smooth Sailing w/Ayman Just Fk’n kidding. E3 is All about Equipment

December 6, 2020

This week we bring ARMY SF WARRIOR Bobby Scali on to the show to discuss equipment in policing.  Bobby is actually credited with savings lives! (And just being an awesome person and human being - Truly Sapient).  

We get in depth with Bobby about what he's been seeing all over the world as he travels to promote his life saving tool: Vector Shields. 

I swear, no turtlenecks were worn during the recording of this episode - even though it may sound like it at first. Peter definitely was sipping on some macha tea at first while his life was threatened by Ayman.  Ayman also got a few "quick reps" in, so we apologize for the heavy breathing. 

If anyone has seen Pete let us know. 

Midweek Roll Call What is your WHY?  | M1 Project Sapient

Midweek Roll Call What is your WHY? | M1 Project Sapient

December 2, 2020

Because of the amazing feedback we have decided to listen to requests of "more" so we will be doing our regular weekly episode along with a midweek episode called "midweek roll call". These episodes will be shorter and will focus on highlighting the GOOD in policing.  

You will hear the "atta-boy's" along with key concepts.

This weeks midweek episode revolved around "What is your 'WHY?' "

Some of the things you hear could be deemed as personal. Pete got a little angry but Ayman calmed him down real quick. Pacifiers may have been used.

Listener discretion is advised. 

Thank you to everyone for your continued support.

Special thanks to Havok Journal, Boone Cutler, and COFFEE (lots and lots of coffee)

“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face”

“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face”

November 29, 2020

"Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face" - Mike Tyson.  This episode continues exploring the problems we face in Policing and the military, coupled with the warrior mindset and the ethos derived from getting punched in the face, in life. From how we are conditioned as children, to making a fist. Many of us have received "the slap", some more than others- some none at all...and this is problem.

Does the mind carry the body? 

There may or may not have been an all out brawl on the air. Everyone has since recovered post recording.

Intro and “Warrior Mindset” discussion in Policing

Intro and “Warrior Mindset” discussion in Policing

November 21, 2020

This episode is an intro of Project Sapient (Ayman and Peter G)  and a discussion about the "Warrior Mindset" in the law enforcement and military community. Is it taboo? Is it lacking? Does it need to go away from here? Should we defund the police? What can we do from here?

Our goal is to always open a discussion, bring opinion, facts, experts and solutions to the ever changing world we live in - within the law enforcement and military community.

We hope you will enjoy. Give us a follow!

*no feelings were hurt during production of this podcast. Maybe Ayman's but he will survive.
