US police slogan: Go out, Cause PTSD

The US police face a new scandal after revelation that the slogan of one its academies is ‘Cause post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)’.

The revelation came after a photograph of the graduation program of a police academy in the state of Idaho was e-mailed anonymously to news outlets throughout the state.

It showed that the slogan, “Don’t suffer from PTSD, go out and cause it,” is printed on the academy’s graduation programs.

“It shouldn’t have been there. It was inappropriate.” said Jeff Black, the director of Idaho Police Officer Standards and Training.

Disavowing the slogan, Black said the class president was ex-military, and that the slogan “slipped in.”

According to the US Veterans Association, tens of thousands of US soldiers suffer from PTSD, which causes nightmares, flashbacks and physical symptoms.

PTSD makes sufferers feel as if they are reliving trauma, even many years later.


Man Arrested After He Fought Off Burglars

A South Orlando man got some uninvited Christmas Eve guests Monday night.

Arif Sameja walked into his south Orlando apartment to find three people he didn’t know inside.

When he tried to stop them he wound up in handcuffs.

Overnight, Arif Sameja was watching movies at a downstairs neighbor’s house when he heard a loud boom. Sameja said it sounded like it came from his apartment directly upstairs.

Sameja ran up and found his front door kicked in. He rushed back to his friends apartment and grabbed a bat as his friend called 911. When Sameja went into his apartment he found it had been ransacked. Moments later he discovered two people were hiding in the bathroom and another crouched in his closet. He soon realized he was outnumbered.

“One of the (suspects) ran out and tried to punch me,” Sameja said. “He hit me a couple of times, and I punched him in the face. He tried to run out of the apartment and I had a bat so I turned around and hit him in the back of the head.”

Deputies arrived as Sameja and one of the suspects were running down stairs.

Sameja, bat in hand, was handcuffed and put into the back of a deputy’s cruiser. By the time deputies realized they cuffed the wrong guy, the bad guys were gone. They’re still on the run.

The thieves got away with Sameja’s wallet and his laptop computer. They also had his flat screen TV, Playstation 3 and other valuables in the middle of the floor ready to go.
