Just because cameras are constitutional does not always make them a good idea either. Is it that difficult for you to understand what the city council is trying to do? They are trying to include safety police as regular police officers so it doesn't look like they are reduced the number of police officers?. Bottom line:We need more police officers! I don't think it should be that hard to understand. I guess that is too difficult for you to understand. You didn't bash Mr. D, but its fine for you to bash me? We pay taxes for police officers. Taxpayers SHOULD get what they are paying for. Period.
