Re: “Fewer Colorado Springs cops work the streets as crime rises

Audrey, the council is driven by public opinion, at least the opinions of those who get out and vote. I agree with you about added rules and regulations hampering the budget, but it's the squeaky wheels that get the grease and Suthers is pretty conservative...

There are too many people and too few resources (natural and otherwise) to cover all the bases. This problem will continue to grow because that's all it can do. Fearful people (the squeaky wheels) will continue to promote paranoia and "stronger enforcement of the laws" as we move steadily toward authoritarianism. Personally, I'm anti-disestablishmentarian myself - I'm for government that works for everyone!

"55% of the budget is spent on police and fire" perhaps if council and Suthers didn't need to waste time and money making new ordinances over plants, there wouldn't be as much money spent? Looks like some more propaganda excuses from Suthers as to why...
