Enemabag Jones: BarkingUnicorn,I may as well illustrate this thread right now:I fail to see what Indians cleaning an elephant have to do with this thread.
Notabunny: Most people past their teens understand that government agencies have multiple revenue streams outside of the general fund, some they can control and some they can't. Many, such as grant funds, are dedicated to funding equipment purchases or the staffing of specific programs, and their use is entirely outside the agency's discretion. I know grownup reality interferes with your cop hate, so feel free to carry on. Just don't think most people old enough to vote agree with you.
nocturnal001: jso2897: Trance354: Sounds like Denver. Wanna see crime? 11:30pm - 1:00am ANYWHERE on Colfax. 2 murders outside my building in the last year. No suspects. It doesn't help that they were both drug dealers. Or that the police station is two blocks away. need some company for the night? Colfax. Drugs? Colfax. Murder for hire? I'm sure you can find it on Colfax. One stop crime shopping./can't beat the rent//just gotta keep from getting robbed/murderedOnly two murders outside your bldg last year, and you call that crime? Pussy.If you were any kind of citizen, you'd go out and waste a few motherf**kers your own self.This is what many are thinking when they buy a gun for home defense.Heard a good point recently wondering how many gun owners are so worried about crime but lack smoke detectors.
Notabunny: fta I don't have a big problem with this. Police departments have to make tough choices, and this is an example of a choice that's entirely defensible given the realities of the municipal budget.If you want less crime, hire more crime fighters. If you don't want to hire crime fighters, be content with more crime.
