In celebration of Black History Month, please take a moment to meet the Brookline Police Department’s Emergency Telecommunications Dispatcher Brandon Johnson.

Brandon Johnson officially became a dispatcher for the Town of Brookline in January of 2017. He was born and raised in Boston, MA and also spent parts of four years during high school and a part of college in Charlotte, NC. He received his Associates Degree in Business in 2017 from Southern New Hampshire Universit...y and is currently working on his Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from SNHU as well.

In his spare time, Brandon enjoys sports, traveling, and cooking. If he’s not engaging in one of those hobbies, he can usually be found hanging out with family and friends, or at his church, Holy Tabernacle Church, in Dorchester, MA. He is an experienced organist, drummer, singer, and choir director. In addition to his musical talents, he also serves on the Youth and Young Adult Leadership Team, and has been on the Church’s Board of Trustees since 2011.

Although Brandon may be a fairly new face to some town employees or residents, he’s very familiar with the Town of Brookline. He worked at Enterprise Rent-a-Car for a short time, and he certainly knows his way around the Brookline firehouses because of his dad, William (Bill) Johnson, who has been a firefighter in the Town for over 32 years. Brandon has always had a knack for helping people and enjoys doing so in any way that he can. He is looking forward to meeting new people and having a rewarding career with the Town.

Cops are paid with taxes. Taxation is theft because one cannot opt out of taxation. Statism is dependent on taxation and thusly is slavery. If you don't pay taxes, you are fined and forced to pay even... more money. If you refuse to pay, cops kidnap you and throw you in a cage; all paid for with taxes (stolen money). If you resist being kidnapped, cops will beat you, kidnap you, and cage you even longer. If you resist being beaten, cops will murder you. In so doing, cops maintain the system of taxation known as Statism. This then makes ALL cops de facto overseers on a tax slave plantation. Therefore, all cops are complicit in your enslavement (that through 12 years of indoctrination in the Public Fool System most call "freedom" (orwellian)) irrespective of the cop's rank, "race", or gender.

For the last couple of months, almost every night on Beacon there has been construction. Yet the police there to control traffic are standing at the choke point talking to each other instead of trying... to move traffic and control lights. Use some cones and some signs to let people know there is a lane closure ahead and start to close the lane BEFORE the point on construction so motorists can start to merge ahead of time. congestion can be avoided with little bit of effort.

Thanks to the officer that pulled me over on a side street this AM after I took a left on a “no left from 7-9am”. He was understanding about the fact I had NO idea where I was and my GPS was telling m...e to drive off a cliff at that point. #standup #thanksforthebreak #stressedout See More

When your job is funded by theft and requires forceful implementation of edicts and mandates, regardless of morality or ethics or actual victims, it may be time to reflect on the possibility that you ...are not one of the "good guys" that you most likely see yourself as.

Consider your personal actions in violating others and using coercion to enforce your master's whims.

Have been incredibly unhelpful and borderline rude on numerous occasions. Don't count on these guys for protection or help; they really don't care.

Any org funded by stolen money (taxes), needs to not exist.

Can you please post updates on what is being done to try to control the violent incidents in the St. Paul area? The last stabbing over an iPad has this neighborhood very concerned and scared about saf...ety. What can we as a community do to try to improve our well-being? Will there be more patrols of Brookline neighborhoods? What efforts are being made to catch these guys? See More

Last night I was blatantly followed by your police officers and searched unlawfully while WALKING HOME at 2 am. I was treated like a criminal without any type of probable cause of me doing anything. I...s this how we treat our own citizens? Especially I hope your proud of what kind of officers you have patrolling the streets of Boston. See More

Please use your squad cars to catch tellapaths @ grand theft auto. 3D photo IDs need to match birth certificates with hair sample and finger prints. It is not Racial Profiling to track a loud voice a stolen auto or RV. Citizens can text message a police fax number. North Korea has 170 submarines; US subs 71 subs, 17 frigates, 22 cruisers, 62 destroyers with guided torpedos. See More
