and I would think that one SWAT team for multiple communities
would be sufficient.
Since it does cost tax dollars it would be nice if the police
poll the community to see what their view of the need vs.
want is. The police seem to say - We have decided that
there is a NEED and they go out and spend the money and
then raise taxes. There will be no end to the "toys" that
these people want/need.
I am against spending tax payer's money in order to increase
revenue (eg. , intersection cameras). If they want the intersection
to be safer they should increase the time for the yellow or put up a
countdown indicator like they have on the crosswalks now. That way
you would know how many seconds are left to get thru the light. If
there are only 2-3 seconds you know to stop at the light. -Simple-
BUT - it reduces revenue - NO, we can't possibly do that!
AND why would we want to?
(because you're there to PROTECT the people, stupid!)
