They both need a couple of sets? Would the second set go on the back? .... Like for dancing?

I talked to someone last time home that is on our city council. Knew him just ran into him we started talking. That man put a new spin on the way I look at things about defunding the police now.
They don't want to cut the police out. Just what you mentioned them getting rases, always nagging the crap out of the cities for more money, he said LE managment must of gone to college to learn how to hound the hell out of everyone their always summiting requet for more money, and it never ends. First thing I thought about when he said that was Faternal Order of the police that till you get rude, nag the shit out of you as bad as telemarketers wanting you to send them money. . Think about it.? He said we all want the police we just want them to do their job with what they have and he made a joke about it when there kinda waiting at the door for you ever morning at work it gets old.

Then he ask me something I didn't think about. Did we see the police stopping those riots? I mentioned the other day mayer of Chicago finally sent in 400 police to stop what was happening in Chicago after I told him I work up there, he looked at me said ya,, thats a first. !!!! That got me to thinking. They don't want to cut police they just don't think they are getting their moneys worth.
Read where Portland passed to defund them. I had to of read this wrong but something like 400 million a year they cut them down to almost nothing. Again I had to have read this wrong but I'm thinking it said 3 million.
I got a new spin from him on whats going on. Posted this the other day googled my town Elizabeth City one of the worst places to live in america. one out of 17 changes you will be a victim living inside the city limits. Never had a clue things were that bad up town.

One of the officers at the support the blue motorcycle ride I went on we were talking. He told me they know where the crime is SBI, FBI, state and Federal tell them to back off. He said we can't do anything now unless they ok it and sometimes we feel they even forget us.

Last thing we talked about hit home. He said cities are fed up with no one doing anything they are defunding them cause they can't or wont move on issues that could be taken care of. AKA sitting back doing nothing You got so many departments tripping over other departments LETS HOLD ON THIS. that nothing is getting done.

Ok remember what I said at first. LE managment hounds the hell out these cities for money . Not my words what this man said. If crime goes up, we need more police to control it CORRECT. AND,, they need more money. Think about it. Why do SBI, FBI state and FEDs put local police depts on hold. ?
The longer you don't do anything about it the worse it gets. Money money someone is going to cry they need to control it.
In that artical I read about portland their defunding the police would only cut 100 jobs. Cut the crap out of extra expences but could it be cause these cities are tired of not getting what they feel they are paying for???
Don't shoot me, I"m just the piano player on this one. This is what I took out of what they guy said. We already know LE enforcment managment can't play in the same sand box as any of the rest of them, Carrying a gun each state has to have its own totally different set of rules. You get one FEDERAL report same the next state gets to get your CCW yet the next state beside you won't allow you to have a bullet in the car like Maine. Why do we have to have 500 different ways to own a gun when all of them check 1 federal report.

IN NC when I do come around the back end of the state I have to cross several sets of scales. 3 actually. Durning the day 90 percent of the time there are 3 to 6 HP cars out there. Full time. How many cops does it take to read a truck on a scale.
In NC when you have in a lot of years HP changes over and rides the last years out as DOT. Easy job, sure you render add to anyone if its needed but thats 3 to 4 guys on the pay roll that are there, sipping coffee doing nothing. Some states have hired regular people to run the scales. Pa turn pike is now no change no ticket you don't stop they have you on camera you will get a bill. Guess what. YOu will pay that bill or you won't get tags next time you need them. They got ya. Law Enforcment will be involve getting money off of that. Construction areas, LE writes themselves in two and three LEOs with lights on sitting in constructions areas all day. They a money making business. LOL
. You blow the scales you better have brushed your teeth they got cameras that nail you so close they can tell your eye color. Indiana posted a picture of a guy on CDL live playing with his cell phone coming into the scales he had on his college ring when the picture was blown up. Thats how close they can get. LOL Why are there 6 cops sitting in that weigh station all day long. OK maybe except lunch. LOL
just something to think about. !!!

When I seen your post about raises that sparked what he said again.

That's not what this is all about. No doubt there can be savings in the police department, just like the military, without cutting it effectiveness. There are also opportunities in removing some of the duties that are not really necessary but forced on the department. Those things could make a lot of sense, but not what the "defund the police" movement is all about. The press owns some of the blame for confusing the two.

The bigger problem is the number of people who aren't smart enough to realize why this is a bad idea. Voting has consequences.

Yep. "defund the police" is a stupid way to describe it, even for those that really want to do that.

Really unfortunate that things have gotten to this point.

You rich guys had all day to get the right numbers ain't done a "thang". LOL

Don't we all love the media. Media has made this look like they wanted to replace the entire LE dept. God these people and the weather people have gone slap crazy.

Portland police budget. 2020 242 million. They ask for 245 million for calinder years 2021 Portland only OK'ed 16 million cut. . Public wanted a 50 million dollar cut
900 full time officers 50 cadets and 300 civilian positions.

thats only a 6.2 percent cut with all that media hipe that has the whole country so fired up. Anyone else hate the media.

I thought south africa had stopped providing police protection for homes in 2006 or a few years after? thought being - rich enough to own a home, then get your own police protection. so there were all these armed response companies. then capitalism took over and big companies bought the small protection services, then they replaced the workers with low paid immigrants who from what I read would respond unarmed and (seriously) blow the horn but not enter your house.
I have not been back to South africa- where did all this go?
