Herkimer pd does not need more members. 18 is fine. They went to 20 when HCCC needed them. HCCC has their own gun carrying safety dept now, therefore, the village does not need that many any more. There's nothing the police could have done to stop what happened last week - all they can do is respond after the fact. Everytime something happens anyway, even minor, they call all the off duty police in anyway - for really no reason than to pay overtime and hype the incidents (and the troopers take care of big things anyway). Don't get me wrong, we need our PD definitely, I am pro-police (even related), pro-public service. But using this tragic incident for political gain (yes, that's what this is), is not only unnecessary - it's fear-mongering. Since this is fresh on people's minds, no one wants to tell them no.

Nor should they be told NO! Profile Mr. Myers. Ten or more just like him walking the streets this very minute. Could be you ^

Yes it could be - and same police will show up after - that's all they can do. It's just the way it is. They respond after the fact....there's no way for them to know when this stuff is going to happen. They, unfortunately, cannot prevent it - unfortunately - even if they had 100 officers.

Exactly, which makes Malone's comments today all the more suspect and a farce. Didn't matter if he had the National Guard in Herkimer and Mohawk last Wednesday beforehand. They still would not have been able to stop what nobody knew was coming, except Kurt Myers. Most of law enforcement is done after the fact, after the crimes have been committed. Not many are prevented, stopped before they can be carried out. Fortunately, early on Malone knew this was well over his head and the Mohawk and Herkimer PD's, that the State Police got involved.

Police presence = deterrence. It was going to happen no matter what, but how many borderline jerks are held at bay by deterrence?
nothing to see here folks

Watch the news clips from that day. I would expect patrolmen to direct traffic and guard doors, but what did I see? One local sergeant directing traffic. A local captain guarding a door and a local CHIEF making sure nobody crossed the yellow police tape. He was 1 man. Our so called special response team should have been able to handle 1 man. On the other hand I'm glad they didn't try.
Leave it to the real police. Somebody has to direct traffic, guard doors, and repeatedly say keep moving folks, nothing to see here.
Do we need more people to do that? No. If when the $hit hits the fan that's all they are good for, we need less.

You're probably mad because they arrested you before you could make a good profit on your drug sales or you were stopped from collecting anymore welfare benefits illegally.

Please post a comment to keep me amused.
