Police officers used to walk beats through city neighborhoods.
Police officers used to ride by two in patrol cars.
There were ENOUGH police officers to do all this with!
The Republicans, in their infinite wisdom, chose to cut taxes so much that we don't have enough police officers to guard our streets. Why don't they raise the taxes on the richest (NOT the middle- and poorer-classes)? Because they want as few police protecting everyone as possible! It's the ONLY explanation!
Someone PLEASE tell me how people like this keep getting elected!
