Gangsters obsess over cops. They also obsess over getting over on cops. The code of the street says, "If you catch them slippin, you got to take them out!" It goes along with their mentality, their mindset and their MO. And more often than not, it’s their way of life. And the contributing factors aside, because I am don’t want to make excuses for them, it’s how they consciously choose to live.
Think about the last time you were in a gang banger's home, or a drug dealer or some other miscreant of society. How did it look? How'd it smell? Didn't it have the ‘standard-issue’ pot of rice on the stove? You know, the one that has been sitting there from the night, the week, the month before! The one next to the pot of boiled water that's been cold for a week that has roaches with Spanish accents swimming in it. Are you itchy yet? They are all the same. Whether you are in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Chicago or Teaneck, NJ, Des Moines, Iowa, or Woodbury, MN, the miscreants may sound or look a little different but they're all basically the same.
They know it! They live it! And in their homes, whether it is an apartment or a private house, there is that room with a door with a hasp attached secured with a heavy-duty lock. What for? Don't you have one of those in your homes? You know, to keep you family members and your buddies out of your stuff? They do! Because in the world they live in, its "…if I catch you slippin, I can take what's yours…” You know, “OPP”, “Other People's Property" and all that crap!
So, when you are dealing with people who are looking to catch you slippin, DON'T, especially when you are dealing with gangs. It's what they do! It's what they practice! It's what they think about! It's what they wait for! Make it part of your everyday routine. DON'T GET CAUGHT SLIPPIN! For cops, SLIPPIN, can merely be not taking an aggressive stance, not wanting to be seen as too aggressive, or just thinking a little too hard about avoiding a civilian complaint or worse, a lawsuit. That hesitation, that fear of getting in trouble, or simply being off-guard, will render you Slippin. DON'T GET CAUGHT!
"Five point position!", "Raise the roof!", "Scrap line!", "Gun grab!", "050 Flashight!", "Eat his food!"..., Do I need to go on? Gangs have a phrase for it! They have a code word to call it out! And they all got a tactic to take you out ...IF THEY CATCH YOU SLIPPIN. DON'T GET CAUGHT!
Figoski ...Timoshenko ... Mossomillo .... Andrews... Nemorin ... Carter… Carrington. ALL HEROES. All Died to save others! And what did the some of the NYC juries say to these cops and their families? $#%& !@?!
And it’s not just here, in NY, its everywhere.
In Topeka KS in 2012, two hero cops, Jeff Atherly and David Gogian, lost their lives to a scumbag Latin King with a gun who sat in wait in his vehicle and then opened fire!
Do you hear the sounds of Amazing Grace!!! Don’t Get Caught!
SLIPPIN', DON'T GET CAUGHT!

As our borders receive more scrutiny and terrorists develop stronger partnerships with gang members, criminal adversaries become more adept at countering law enforcement and military tactics. In light of the more prevalent threat from 'homegrown' terrorists, these adversaries may even come from within our own ranks or simply have an intricate knowledge of our tactics. American gang members, foreign terrorists and domestic extremists have been excessively infiltrating the ranks of our military for decades and, to a much lesser degree, the ranks of our law enforcement community. This exposure to 'tactical' experience and intricate knowledge lends itself to bringing enemy combatants, whether gang members, terrorists or extremists, a step closer and more capable of defeating our tactical efforts.
Over the years, I have investigated or learned about many individuals who were actually gang members, extremists or terrorists who have been privy to military and law enforcement tactical information and training. These infiltrators were able to observe military or law enforcement tactics first hand, putting them to use against us. These examples show the deadly potential posed by gangs and terrorists. Here are just a few:
To better prepare our law enforcement and military to counter potential dangerous situations, we should establish and follow some additional administrative and operational guidelines. These guidelines are especially important for tactical and specialized units like SWAT, Narcotics and Gangs. These simple, but effective, procedures will help protect the integrity of the unit’s tactics and contribute to the safety of its members during tactical operations:
