Spokesman Who Attacked Rams’ Ferguson Protest Was Fired From Police Job in 2001 for Misconduct

It looks like the most recent agenda of those such as Roorda is to attack the employment of people who they don’t like.

After several members of the St. Louis Rams NFL team made a “hands up” gesture of solidarity with Ferguson protesters before the team’s home game yesterday, a group called the St. Louis Police Officers Association issued a statement criticizing the players. The group’s statement quoted its business manager, Jeff Roorda:

The SLPOA is calling for the players involved to be disciplined and for the Rams and the NFL to deliver a very public apology. Roorda said he planned to speak to the NFL and the Rams to voice his organization’s displeasure tomorrow. He also plans to reach out to other police organizations in St. Louis and around the country to enlist their input on what the appropriate response from law enforcement should be. Roorda warned, “I know that there are those that will say that these players are…

  3. What a classic dipshit. What 1st Amendment Right is he going to exercise since cop shops aren’t allowed to be involved in this sort of shit. This is a political issue and NO ONE has done anything to him or his goon squad.

    He has a problem with someone exercising their rights but his goons will now do what……exercise what ??? Free Speech ?? about what, how many times does a goon / thug cop need to shoot at a person running away……??

    I think I’ll get wrist bands, bumper stickers, T shirts, book markers and the ultimate cop insult, the dreaded dark hoodie that all say “Darren Wilson is a Killer” and there is nothing he can do about it. He’s probably trying to get his hood and robe on and all his bitching and whining is slowing him down.

    Maybe I’ll get a screen saver made up about them. Maybe we all need wrist bands that say ….

    “I’m NOT Darren Wilson, THANK GOD”

    “Roorda himself has been in the news before: In 2001 he was fired from his police job in Arnold, a Missouri city about 20 miles from St. Louis, after making what an investigation determined to be a false accusation of abusive behavior against his police chief during a dispute over paid leave. The department’s justification for his termination made reference to a previous incident in which Roorda had lied on a police report. From a Missouri Court of Appeals ruling upholding his firing:

    … the record reveals that in July 1997, Roorda attempted to try to “cover” for another police officer by filing a report that contained false statements as to what happened during a suspect’s apprehension and arrest.   As a result of this false report, all charges against the defendant involved were dropped, and Roorda received a written reprimand from B.J. Nelson (the City’s Chief of Police at the time) for violating the City Police Department’s General Order 74.4 (“False Reporting”).”

    He lied on a police report……gee, Wilson didn’t even write one……how convenient.

    • Roorda was also on the Board of the organization collecting donations for Darren Wilson, so of course he doesn’t want any expression of support for the people of Ferguson and interprets protests to be anti-government. Roorda got the result he wanted via the other person who helped collect donations for Wilson; i.e., Bob McCullough. Roorda should be the person who shuts up.

    • racerrodig…..just for the record……many police departments have policy in which a cop who shoots does not write a report, instead the investigating officer of the shooting does. I don’t know why. Also some departments also forbid the questioning of an officer involved shooting until 2 days have passed. There have been studies on that and it has been found that they remember more after that time frame then immediately following a shooting.

      Like

      • Well that may be in some places but around here a report is done within hours to get it on the record. The shooter and whoever is doing the shooting investigation both write a report. The shooter has to write a report about what led up to it….a break in call, disturbance, DV, drunk & disorderly…..whatever.

        The other report involves statements and evidence of just the shooting. Wilson stated it is policy to do a report but some union rep, or whomever, told him not to.

        It’s clear to me everyone and his brother knew he was screwed and the less locked into the better. There was video posted here I believe where at some point after several other cop arrived and they started to figure out what to do (cover up) there is Wilson walking in the street at the curb walking very slowly and suspiciously, with no purpose and suddenly they mark shell casings there……20 feet or so from Mike’s body.

        Around here, Wilson would be moved from the scene and not allowed to wander about.

        Back on 10/3/14 in our town a cop called in that he was shot at by 2 black men while in his car while parked in a park just up the road at night. He wrote a report and it was discovered in the investigation by the County Investigator that……

        2 shots were fired…….both from his gun
        the shots hit the windshield………but he had no glass bits on him
        the drivers seat was covered in glass bits and dust
        one shot hit the drivers headrest………but not him
        the other shot hit the drivers seat mid chest……….but not him
        both casings were located approx 20 feet from the car

        Hmmmmmmmm ?? Those 2 black guys are damn good at altering a crime scene.

        Then the “cover up” begins with “…..the officer in question had an accidental discharge of his firearm while in the car……” Uuhhhhhuhhh ??

        And that exonerates his “I was shot at by 2 BLACK MEN just exactly how I ask. Needless to say, he’s an ex-cop facing charges.

      No clue that a cop can’t shoot at anyone who is fleeing unless they are armed, the cop knows it and the suspect is clearly a threat to anyone else OR is a know escaping felon.

      These race baiting hate mongers think if someone, well……a black person is, well, just there, it’s okay to open fire no matter what.

        Isn’t ignorance amazing? One of the things missing from the opinions and arguments of bigots, is the issue of bullet proof vests. Since they live in a make-believe world, they should be the first to think about shields, spider webs, capes, — those things that heroes have to protect them from harm while capturing the bad guys.

        These race baiting hate mongers think if someone, well……a black person is, well, just there, it’s okay to open fire no matter what.

        That is built on their foundational ideology that minorities have no rights.

    • Shyloh,
      Please — no need to apologize for that Twitter exchange. There are things with the timing for when she came to Twitter and some other things that happened around that time that conveys to me who she is. She is not what she says on her profile. Her bringing up the Anthony case also conveys to me who she is.

      You might have read the posts here about the cyber-extortionists. She is one of that group and agenda. She lurks on this blog, and then seeks out people on social media who comment here in order to start her lying, degrading, defamation agenda. Her agenda is to convince others that I’m a “black racist” who “hates White people” and a “fraud” so they should not participate on this blog. Don’t be surprise if she DM’s you a court decision and alleges that I am the party involved in the case and she knows my real name. It’s a game that she and her minions have played since January 2013.

      She is a person who stalked me on JB’s blog and after discovering Blackbutterfly7, she immediately starting sending filthy comments here that among other things, threatened that unless I stopped participating on JB’s blog that she would ruin my reputation.

      (JB believes that Casey Anthony did not kill her daughter. I was not on the internet during that case, didn’t follow it, and what matters to me is that a baby died and whomever killed her has not been brought to justice. I discovered JB when looking for a civilized blog that supports justice for Trayvon. I was treated respectfully on her blog. In particular, I was not going to let Miss Filth tell me who I could not associate with.)

      Miss Filth’s logic is that I was wrong to participate on JB’s blog about justice for Trayvon, because she disagrees with JB’s opinion concerning Casey Anthony — not Caylee but Casey. Her logic is like saying people who believe that George Zimmerman was justified in killing Trayvon have to hate Trayvon, the victim.

      I could see her agenda on Twitter by engaging you — bring up Caylee Anthony, then tell you that I support JB who doesn’t believe Casey killed her daughter, to say that you should not associate with this blog.

      • Peni,
        I read the article and the statute that it linked to. I’m not familiar with how the courts have interpreted Missouri law in this matter and would need to research cases to see their interpretation. If I were to research it further, I would begin by researching how the Missouri Supreme Court interprets “criminal jurisdiction.” That stands out to me because it does not appear that the court has “criminal jurisdiction” to appoint a special prosecutor unless there is a charge.

        In the case cited on Think Progress (State v. Copeland), the defense requested the judge to disqualify the prosecutor due to conflict of interest. The defendant was charged with committing a crime. The defense has standing to request disqualification of a prosecutor. It’s for the benefit of the defendant to receive a fair trial and fair sentencing. That case is very distinguishable from the situation with Wilson who has not been charged.

  14. I have no doubt that the police in St. Louis if not around the nation are going to have it out for the Rams players now, and will try and target them for arrest and charges. If we hear anything about some “drug busts” or bs like that it’s undoubtedly because the cops planted it on them as an act of revenge. The end of that letter the Police Organization’s spokesman put out could very well be interpreted as a threat.

    I’d like to know how Roorda who was fired from the police department for misconduct and making false statements, then becomes the chief of police for the next city over. He then becomes executive director and a business manager of the St. Louis Police Officers Association, and is moonlighting as a state lawmaker? I guess crime does pay. It looks as though officer Wilson will walk away from his killing with over a million with a little help from the LPOA.
