    That was sure quick.

    Usually you have time to pull out before the cops arrive.

    You should write a novel, fiction of course. So much of what you say fails the ring of truth criteria...

    The money is there for the taking.... so they took it. BUT..... they didnt get paid NEARLY the amount the cop in the article did. She made $15K more a year unlike the women in the article.

    What Im saying is, they paid that lady far far far far too much money for overtime. Her base pay is insane unto itself. Also realize the vacations and they get the best healthcare for free and they get a HUGE pension.
    Once again..... the unions are taking advantage on the tax payers. And there and 3 year waiting lists to become a cop in my locality that are paid half the amount of said perp..... errrr.... cop in the article. And not because its the 'honerable' job to get. Its a damn great job to have for certain personality types. (Type A)

    And yes, I have dated my fair share of women. And I suppose you can compare my previous post because they were both union jobs where they are over paid for what they do BUT my fiance wasnt overpaid. I dont think she should get a pension though.
    Personally, I have no problem compensating police officers who are well trained and dedicated to their professions. If the pay scale were what it should be for this line of work, perhaps more high quality people would enter it. And while some libertarians might say that they and they alone should be responsible for their own safety (and to a certain extent, they are right) quality policing is absolutely essential in modern society -- especially one that is increasingly urbanized.

They almost always agreed, and we recovered, over the course of a year, hundreds of handguns.

    Every handgun we recovered from a known gang member represents how many crimes prevented? And not just shootings...robberies, carjackings, etc.

    Another crime prevention strategy that our officers created was to do interviews with victims of gang-related shootings and their families/friends within an hour of the crime. The officers told them: "If you retaliate, we will come and arrest you. Let us handle the crime." This dropped our drive-by shootings in our community by 50%.

    You literally have no idea what officers are doing in your community while you're tucked safe in your bed at night to prevent crime.

    The cops I worked with were constantly thinking of better ways to do their jobs.
    I can't believe how many posts of yours I have thanked in this thread considering previous disagreements we have had. Thank you for this, as well... I am pretty much in total agreement with you on this entire thread.

    Quality law enforcement requires adequate salaries to attract professionals to dedicade themselves to a very difficult, dangerous, and complex line of work.

    Just because I don't have specific numbers on the amount of money it generates does not take away from that point.
    I live in a rural place and the largest town has 32 officers, so when I see 3 to 4 of them enforcing traffic violations on the highway on a rotating schedule.
    It lends to the point that there may be over enforcement.
    Or it means that there is a problem on that stretch of road with traffic violations and/or accidents. I drive on National Highway 6 on my commute to work and I see people violating traffic regulations, some of them dangerously, nearly every day. I would like to see MORE enforcement than currently exists on that highway, not less.

    I agree. That is shocking. That is a violation of the rights of the employee. I can't imagine working for anyone in the States that would simply give out such information to any random caller.

    Uh-huh.

    So would you support abolishing your local police force? If all they do is collect taxes and have no responsibility for personal safety, seems you'd support that.

    Would you?

    You do realize that it is well known and published that cops have ZERO RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR PERSONAL SAFETY? You did know that right? Their job is for the good of society at large, not any individual.

    So yes, personal safety is YOUR job, not theirs. That's why you can't sue if you're robbed and the cops take a long time to get there. It's not their job to come save your ass, whether you like that or not.
