    We don't need more cops; we need better cops; and people being better citizens.

    Exactly.

    And I seriously doubt that there are a lot of "delusional leftists" living there.

    The question is, why does anyone stay in a place that is unsafe, where the cops can't be trusted, where the whole area is under the control of violent gangs?

    Yes. The commerce clause was to keep trade regular, not to allow the federal government to regulate the workplace.

    So I guess you would have to explain crime ridden areas where police presence is clearly NOT a deterrent.

    Why are they so afraid?! Crime has been on the decline for decades.

    BBC News - US crime figures: Why the drop?

    If it's not wide spread crime that has the police runnin' like bitches, what is it?
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    That's nice, he's also the one who took the power for the court not provided in the Constitution. He's the one who raped states rights and grew the federal. But that's beside the point, the power you are looking for over local cops is not one of the implied powers of the federal either.

    I suppose those are powerful ties. If you compare how easy it is to get out of a third world slum in Mexico and come to the USA with the ease at which someone living in a US slum could simply move out, then it becomes a mystery why so many of the former do come here despite laws and other barriers, while the latter seem content to stay put.

    either way, it needs to happen. enough is enough with this he said she said crap when it comes to police actions.
    And this is one of the main problems with the nanny types. You're more than willing to solve a problem by creating a worse one.
