Bah I can name 2 police chiefs (one then, the other later on) involved in a shooting my father had done that at least half a dozen cops were involved in. It was downtown outside a popular bar on a holiday at around 11:10PM, and I can name other things like what people were wearing and what guns were involved (undercover on the scene when it happened had the only RL Colt Python .357 magnum I've seen).

He was arrested in April, 2021, charged in June 2021 and arrested again on Wednesday on charges unrelated to the original incidents...

Why was he not IN jail for the previous two offenses? Is stealing drugs and firearms (not to mention stealing from a cancer patient) not enough to keep you locked up until trial these days?

The black market for these metals could be curbed entirely by regulation. Hear me out. The end-buyer must rely on a steady flow of stolen materials to keep the money coming. Why not make sale or possession of these metals a crime unless licensed by the state?  The end-buyer must prove they bought palladium for example from a licensed seller. Or face jail time.

Disclaimer: it's early, I'm drunk, and don't know Jack shiat about how the metals market works.

You should read the book of funny/interesting crimes my partners and I committed over 3 years. I didn't write about much of the violence, the last story is about a close friend who went after 3 men armed with AK-47s with a broomstick. You can imagine what happened. That was the kind of people I was surrounded with on a frequently 60 per 100k murder rate tiny island that is part of the US and is not included in FBI overall statistics.

Around here, a street thug typically needs 5 or 6 felonies with an illegal weapon to see any jail time, so this isn't a surprise.

Or maybe he's just a scumbag, and was a known scumbag when they hired him, but he got hired anyway because he had a 'hook'.

In Jersey stories about thieving, murderous POS cops are a daily occurrence.   I don't know a single one who has been sent to prison.  The worst that happens is they get to take early retirement.   Please don't tell me it's because of the low cop pay.  Around here cops are paid hundreds of thousands of dollars, literally.  https://www.nj.com/opinion/2022/01/the-average-123000-nj-police-salary-must-be-part-of-the-tax-debate-editorial.html Nothing will change until we get serious police reforms on the national level. and that's not going to happen...ever.

In June 2021, Spivey was charged with embezzling $8,000 meant for a family whose son was battling leukemia. According to the indictment, Spivey allegedly took money intended for the Buffkin family, who lost their son, Philip Tanner Buffkin, to his battle with leukemia in August of 2019.

He messed up. If he had played his cards right, he would have been caught in 2019. He could have had a presidential pardon and a sweet gig on the conservative speaking circuit. Fox and the WSJ editorial page would be denouncing the leukemia kid as a layabout looking for free stuff.

I see several ways to solve this.

First possible method, set up a pawn-style tracking system for the sale of catalytic converters, and limit hours that the scrap yards are allowed to transact for catalytic converters.  Pick something like they cannot start buying until after noon, and they cannot transact after dusk.  Presuming scrappers don't like to hold on to catalytic converters too long, giving victims time to report the crime and have officers on notice to monitor the pawn-style system for transactions and who's performing them.  Any yards caught violating these rules are subject to having their business licenses pulled, similarly to how bars that violate the rules have their liquor licenses pulled.

Second, also using a pawn-style system, limit the number of transactions and size of transactions to 'personal use' quantities if the seller doesn't have a business license and corporate account with the yards.  Seller can only sell say, four catalytic converters per year.  This is adequate for a hobbyist doing exhaust work at home.  Require anyone wishing to sell more than that to the scrap yards to have a license from the state, of which the granting requires that the licensee allow the authorities to do unannounced inspections of the licensee at any time.  Auto repair and exhaust shops would probably not find this too burdensome.  And again, if the scrap yards don't follow the rules, their licenses to do business are pulled.

Third, require the whole exhuast past the exhaust manifold to be brought in if the seller isn't a business with a registered account.  That doesn't mean that the exhaust has to be complete and in one piece, but it has to be easily identified where it can be laid-out end to end to show where it was cut.

Yeah, great plan.  Yawn.  There was a junkyard near where I lived when I was a kid that had a rep for dealing in stolen car parts.   It was the worst kept secret in town.   No one at the junkyard got into trouble until a cop found his own stolen car in the junkyard.
