These guys are going to end up getting sued or seriously injured. Lawenforcement is a profession and it requires training in today`s world of lawsuits and organized criminal gangs.They might be all right dealing with some local kid who is stealing to support his drug habit. Almost all theft is part of an underground criminal network, which is run by criminal gangs.

These guys look to me like a couple of old fat guys who want to fell important and carry guns. I have nothing against guns, not anti-gun. However a gun gives one a false sense of security. If someone is going to pop you they will do it without warning. Pull a gun on somebody without a real good legal reason and you will end up in jail.Anytime a lawenforcement offical shoots a person they are investigated. That is why police forces have unions and the unions provide them a lawyer for defense. Lawyers are expensive,so is bail bond,plus the expense of a civil lawsuit.

This is going to end up costing them more than any tax increase to hire qualified deputies.

The oter thing is, these guys pictures were on Yahoo news. They have thrown the ganulet down to the gangs, who are lible to decide to do somethig to show them how bad they can be. It is a stupid positin tom put themselve in with no legal backing.

The mix of guns and boredom will feed the fear, fear and imagination will give way to seeing all kinds of suspicious stuff. What is suspicious will require confrontation because of the gun and boredom. All that was ever required is "Observe and Report".
