  • What the article says, is that the city PD needs to start addressing the problems which effect it's citizens the most, and that's crime. The staffing of the department has dropped nearly 25% in the last 3 years with plans to decrease it even more. Less officers on the street in order to satisfy community and social programs does not make for a safe city. Add to that the fact that street officers are over-worked, have no relief and haven't received even the slightest of pay raise in 6 years. And it is not progressive when the city's Mayor uses a rise in crime statistics to once again vent is personal dislike for the departments leadership along with his personal vendetta of dismantling the department. The only thing that required dismantling is the leadership of our city.

  • Stop coddling and attracting the Hobos. Drive down Central a block away from a school you will find a third world country.
