82. On one hand and on the other
Chiefs need to be appointed by politicians to keep jobs and sheriffs need to be re=elected. To do so they have to appear to be effective. Some, as Daly, may use increases to scare and play to their base to keep getting re-elected, which he seems to do.

I'm not saying anything about them being wrong, only accepted at face value. People here use Chicago and Washington as anecdotes all of the time. I'd rather see them use Baltimore and its crime prevention policies that seem to work.

I'd like to see all of the studies that are paid for by non-agenda sources, far and few between.
