Backlogs of murder investigations, but he still has the time to bust a chick for buying a dime of heroin, huh?

Just in case anyone had any question where national law enforcement priorities are. Good thing nobody was smoking a joint nearby, they'd have had the whole force down there.

sycraft: Ya well, this is what happens if you get too greedy with contracts. The money has to come from somewhere and if the city can't afford it, then that's what it is.

Makes sense if the county can offer much cheaper policing to go with that.

esteban9: The goal is privatization, as always.

ThatGuyGreg: cman: On the other hand, the police force does suck ass, so maybe this is a good idea

It's a fantastic idea. The local police union has the worst (for us, best for them) contract in the history of police unions. It's being replaced by a county-run force.

Really, it can only get better.

I hardly see what police incompetence and a city full of citizens who are shooting each other and raping each other at "third world rates" have to do with overpaid unions. Is there some point where a city's unions are overpaid, and suddenly everyone decides to rape and shoot each other?

This thread is like all those college freshman orientations that teach women "How to protect yourself" instead of teaching men "Don't rape." Only its some farked up neoconservative Republican 1% version.

They could just solve the problem permanently and deport all the black people to Africa.

And as usual the politicians blame the baaaad ol' unions.

I'd always been under the impression that most police forces don't pay for shiat.

Gyrfalcon: Small town + intractable union = let the county take over.

There really aren't a lot of other options for small cities with small tax bases.

Camden isn't what you'd consider to be "a small town" though.
