You want results Mayor Ballard , Then you get the police out of those cars and walking the beat, Then they can see people in those neighborhoods up close and personal. They can talk to the older ones and younger kids in those neighborhoods, They can stop the little thugs before they become hardened killer thugs, I mean like those wanna be gang bangers who spray gang signs on homes, garages, and on the streets. They can catch the rapist or pedo out trying to grab a child.I mean when did whomever in charge of the police decide they didn't need to walk the beat anymore? Was it the police unions power that said no more walking the beat for police officers?If they can have police on bikes and horses downtown or on bike trails, Why not in the worst crime ridden neighborhoods? Our soldiers fighting abroad don't have a choice what region or area they are sent into, Many of them walk the beat looking to weed out the terrorist there, Yes they are in harms way. When is the last time a police officer in Indianapolis walked the actual beat?Driving through neighborhoods in police cars doesn't do a thing to intimidate criminals, You make yourself a daily presence walking the beat in their neighborhood , You will see many of them leave or a lot of crime seize to exist. You will have people feel more comfortable and come up to you and talk about whose the problems in those neighborhoods , Yes you do have to get down to the level of many in those neighborhoods to get a feel of how they live. Would be nice if laws were actually enforced as in even vulgar language and littering . Love to see tickets issued for yes adults using foul language on the streets or against their own kids, I have heard so many parents use the most vile language upon their little kids, Ads in if you don't shut up, I will knock the F out of you or teeth out, I'm talking kids as young as 3 years old.I see the police have an annual police park gathering day for people to meet the police. They are out of they're cars for a change.Would be nice to know cops are walking even down the alleys and streets at night looking out for us citizens , You see I don't have a badge , So I can't confront many of the criminals I see doing wrong, I can only call the police, Then I have to wait and hope they show up and handle the problem at hand. Most the time they never show, Or I'm asked a million questions about the problem .Do your jobs police and Mayor, Then you will get the real respect you deserve in the community that you police.I don;t mean writing citations for every little thing as in a flat tire on the street or a broken window on a car or even expired plates.The ones walking the beat need to deal hands on with the real problems in the neighborhoods now and not later.Look around you have the input already before your eyes called the decaying neighborhoods. That doesn't mean you abandon them due to that fact.Treat the people in those neighborhoods as humans.

So you think our crime problems are an enforcement issue rather than a justice issue? Interesting perspective and certainly bodes well on the courts.

Yes the courts need cleaned out also indeed, To many times the courts release the same repeat offenders over and over, I don't blame cops for getting angry or disappointed over how a judge or even a prosecutor slaps criminals on the wrist. But cops on the beat foot patrol not in cars, They need to walk those alleys and neighborhoods . Then we need activist judges removed from the bench.We have so many laws now that aren't being enforced as in noise ordinance , Now franklin , carmel, I believe greenwood and lawrence have a noise enforcement code they follow , They write tickets if the car stereo is booming too loudly.It's the little things that lead to trouble in any neighborhoods as I mentioned. noise, trash being tossed out of cars on to the streets and sidewalks, or empty lots.There is no reason why every neighborhood can't be cleaned daily, we have enough offenders who can be used as street sweepers daily. Make them work off their sentence by cleaning up the dirtiest neighborhoods . start enforcing the code against foul language , tell the aclu to shut up that people are using free speech, There is such a thing as vulgar speech. If people began to get tickets when they use very foul vulgar language in public you can bet they would choose more suitable words.Yes the church has backed down on many levels when it comes to handling problems in they're own neighborhoods . Many could pool resources together and hire even private security for bad neighborhoods to help with the police and policing .It's when people take the attitude of nothing matters who cares and toss their hands up, That's when everything falls apart and those criminals do as they please.

Nothing deters crime like a glock 36 strapped to your belt along with 30-40 others excercising their 2nd amendment rights.
That's too bad about your small penis

Mr where well blacks have huge penises yet they kill with tiny bullets lol. Where are you saying they need to use their penis to kill people with, In a sense they have done that already by impregnating so many young teen girls leaving the babies they bring into the world fatherless . I guess the penis id deadlier then the sword and bullets in the black community.Then again we could use those guns to perform abortions, Liberals would then adore guns if used to shoot the unborn and those born out of the wombs, The partial birth abortions now adored by the left as perfectly okay to kill a live baby now, No longer a fetus as they sued to call a baby. Now anything goes in killing babies.Liberals always bring up sex whenever you discuss an issue, The gutter minds of rotten spew they hold within. I always expect when they debate for them to cuss and get angry and makes vulgar threats.Yes we are returning to the old days of the Old West, Where you have to be armed to the teeth for protection, Liberals created most the crime in the inner cities we now see so rampant . They made sure average law abiding citizens couldn't protect themselves even when carrying a knife.Yet the criminals use whatever weapon they choose. What's wrong Mr WHERE, You one of those thugs whose worried the law abiding citizens bullets might target you next as the scum we need to remove from society =) I got my glock, and AR-15 =) and shotguns and rifles.Bring on the thugs =)

What Kaptoz proposes is not realistic because it would be far too expensive to implement. Police officers drive rather than walk because they can cover far more territory behind the wheel. It's not as simple as taking existing officers out of their cars and putting them on the street. There are times when a single officer is responsible for responding to calls covering a territory ranging from 38th street to 96th street.

The mayor just vetoed a proposal by the city council to fund a new class of 50 new IMPD officers because it was too expensive. Having officers deter crime by putting them on foot would take hundreds of additional officers.

This is what I do......

Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk,
I'm a woman's man: no time to talk.
Music loud and women warm, I've been kicked around
Since I was born.
And now it's all right. it's ok.
And you may look the other way.
We can try to understand
The new york times effect on man.

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother,
You're stayin alive, stayin alive.
Feel the city breakin and everybody shakin,
And were stayin alive, stayin alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin alive, stayin alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin alive.

Well now, I get low and I get high,
And if I can't get either, I really try.
Got the wings of heaven on my shoes.
I'm a dancin man and I just can't lose.
You know it's all right.its ok.
I'll live to see another day.
We can try to understand

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother,

Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin alive, stayin alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin alive.

Life goin nowhere.somebody help me.
Somebody help me, yeah.
Life goin nowhere.somebody help me.
Somebody help me, yeah. stayin alive.

How would it cost more? They would be out of those cars meaning no gas to fill up those cars or the high maintenance on police cars , Typical liberal no logic, They cover less area when most of them sit in parking lots eating fast food .They have a better opportunity of nabbing or preventing a crime when on foot up close and personal . Plus they might get into better shape.I think police shoes cost much less than police cars.They drive through many neighborhoods, They don't even know who lives there. That's why the are trained to treat everyone like criminals. That needs to end.

We need stronger neighborhood groups to report thuggery. The problem is people want to turn the other cheek and not get involved. People need to take back the streets and dole out some vigilante justice on these punks running around at 3am.
If you're not part of the solution to keeping our streets safe, you are part of the problem!!!

It costs more for numerous reasons. First off an officer on foot can't cover as much territory as an officer in a car which means we'd need many more officers to cover the whole city. Secondly, much of their work requires the use of cars. How do you expect officers to transport people to jail without a car?
