    Not too much, no. Cops seem to be rarely punished for committing crimes.

    Probably some are this way ...
    I voted "other" .
    I like the concept of only having "state" police, but NO borough , village, town, regional, township, city , and county police , Just ONE group .. state ..
    Having one federal force , IMO, not a good idea ...

    No. Absolutely not. As general rule the closer a governmental agency is to the voter the more control voters can exert on it. Voters have much more control potentially over the village PD than they do over the FBI.

    Yes

    I say no.Control should always be local and seeing how the federal government refuses to adequately secure our borders why on earth would anyone trust the federal government to handle policing?
    Not only no...but HELL no. Government has far more power than it should currently anyways.

    Well that's the least of the worries but at least you said no. Seems to be some decent bi-partisan agreement here.

    Home Land should definitely go. The FBI is needed for federal crimes across state lines. I've never liked the entire "home land" thing as it is; "father Land", "mother land"... We're the US, that's all we need to be.
