well atleast we are not having any problems with violent crime in the city so reducing the police force seem to be a logical answer to budget problems

Nationwide, has a cop ever stopped someone from being shoot? The answer is probably no more often then not. Honestly, if someone want to shoot someone they can probably do it.

We need to solve the problem in the earlier stages like education and job creation. If I have a good job, then I'm not stressed out about bill, therefore I won't need to look toward drugs to relieve my stress, then I would need to shoot anyone because of habits.

Understand there is a process long before a person thinks about shooting someone else but it not a police issue. It's a community concern.
