Reading police is pretty much useless against fighting crime anyway.They are kind of "after the fact" type force. If they had a better handle of things, you wouldn't be seeing murders in the streets everyday.
Reading is a cesspool, and really needs to flush the waste into an ocean somwehere.

I don't think the comment was made to pick at any one officer. I think the comment was more geared to the fact that the RPD is so understaffed & overwhelmed they can't be as proactive as they once were.

Do you really live in Reading because the vast majority of the force does not. Why should they with a 3.6% earned income tax to pay salaries and benefits that allow people to start the job at well over $50K and qualify for retirement after 20 years, sometimes while they are in their early 40's

That is pretty much the case for all cops not just reading as they respond. Buy a gun. When seconds count cops are minutes away..

So, since the definition of corrupt in dishonesty for financial gain. I'm sure you have evidence of this accusation that you have made against an entire department Rick. Or are you just a slug that got arrested and need to blame someone else for your mistakes?

I love how junkies who spend half of their life in jail for junkie offenses, and the other half sleeping with dudes for money to support their dirty habits have any reason to be on her commenting. Hey julie, why don't u tell all of this forum how many times u have been in jail, and how many men u have used and slept with for money? And furthermore, you are a drug addict who was just mad bc Mitchell wasn't supportin your habit. Of course you would be on here, runnin your mouth, cuz that's what u do.....snitch.....and if you really want, I should throw your last name out on here so u can look like a real fool.....

The city needs more security. Maybe a curfew and a few wrecking balls to knock down the meth and crack houses.
Legalize marijuana and build a prison in the city.
I would like to know how many are illegals.
Reading suffers from all the minorities bri nging down the city.
Make drug testing for all the people on welfare mandatory and watch how quick they leave.
You're post makes too much sense... will need happen. It is the new America! NOBAMA 2012!
