Ahh the played out old saying "we need more schools, libraries, recreation places"... For what? More schools is would just be to accommodate the over flow, they would still under preform and be gang infested. More Libraries? For what? Only a few good people go for the books, the rest go to surf for crap on the web, vandalize the place. More rec areas? So that cholos can take over?

Just because you give a someone a book doesn't mean they are going to read it.

Salinas is ghetto because of it's people not for the lack of services

The cops will come get the cat down from a tree, give you a ride when you don't have money from a taxi, and help you write a englisg paper for school. Ha don't make me laugh!The never have done that for people like u and me chavo. the cops are government enforcers out to fill the jails. that is how they stay in business duh it's an billion dollar industry

What are you talking about? If there isn't a crime committed why would someone get busted? Why do you suddenly assume more people are going to prison? Self conscious are you?

Chris Rock knows how not to get your ass kicked by the police.(clip) below

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

It's actually pretty simple

Oh... so from what it sounds you're saying is that there's a bunch of sh!t going on and all more Police is going to do is clean more sh!t than usual?

The system is broken, I know
Don't get me wrong more cops is not the solution, but less is a step in the wrong direction.

Every cop hater has had some sort of problem with the law or is self conscious. I remember growing up and having some dislike for them but I grew up...

But since you bring up currupt government then yes, I agree with you on that. You see the government depends on low informed idiots (the majority of California). Not sure how old you are but as far as I can remember any time the state needs money they threaten the cut the 3 most visible services.. cops, fire, schools. They can cut from hundreds of state agencies but choose not to because they know the public won't respond to those. So you know what they come up with when they want to raise taxes. And the state is not going broke because of cop, fire or schools it's stupid waste, entitlements, welfare fraud, special interest groups...

California is broke and has one of the highest unemployment rates in the US, yet our stupid Governor who the idiots voted in, chooses to sign a majority of laws that assist various organized unions and worker organizations and cater to special interest groups who cater to law breakers. Yes California is stupid.

BTW, the cops caught the little wangster who broke in my car. Turns out it was a teen down the street who's family is on welfare/social services (I know this from the neighbors there) yet they can afford new cars and trucks all with big rims, Some how the state considers them living in poverty...

Singapore doesn't have a drug problem... I've seen (while in tge Navy) how clean and crime free that place is first hand. That's where I found out about their laws on drugs.

Why you mad? Singapore doesn't have a drug problem, why can't you accept that?

Looking at all you post here on this forum makes me believe I commenting to a simpleton... Go back and read ALL your comments and you'll see why... "we need more schools, rec, libraries, cops don't get cats out of trees"... etc

You're a joke dude

Come on Jimmy... err Dennis... err Billy the Kid

The vast majority of homeless don't want jobs. There's plenty of services to help them yet they don't seek it. There's plenty of farm labor jobs that they can take yet they choose not to.

Here's a start instead of giving that homeless guy your spare change, tell him/her they can go stand at home depot and actually look for work or go to your local farm to ask for work. For someone that can stand for hours on end pan handling I think they can find work.

How 'bout that? Some common sense.

There is no such thing as winning a war on drugs. How are you gonna win by locking people up especially drug users for non violent crimes. Some people have too much time on their hands I don't even pay attention to others peoples posts.

1st off I agree with you, I donít like the half cent tax hike but not because I donít want police but because our fuct up government preys on stupid people to approve it. I told you this in one of my comments above. Instead of cutting from the 300+ state agencies when the state is broke they threaten the public to cut the agencies that will impact Californians the mostÖ cops, fire dept, and schools. This scares stupid people into voting for the tax hike and it works. Then the money usually gets put into the general fund and gets wasted on other crap other that what they said it was intended forÖ and the cycle continues.
I never said anything on the war on drugs, YOU brought it up remember? Dennis says ďNo wait I gotchu U want more cops so U can win the war on drugs....lolĒ

Iím guessing youíre a bud user? Thatís cool I donít have a problem with that whatsoever, thatís why I agree with what Washington and Colorado did of legalizing it. I think the ďnon-violentĒ drug users that are getting put jail are stupidÖ they are not responsible. I like to drink, I drink at home or at a bar, I donít drive drunk or drink at parks where alcohol is not allowedÖ I never have gotten in trouble. Now there are a lot of people in jail for drunk driving or for doing stupid sh!t while drunk, these people are not responsible.
Yes I know bud is somewhat illegal, but people can be responsible enough to stay out of trouble. The people I see getting put in jail for drugs are usually gang members, dumbass losers, or hard core tweakers.
BTW
Singapore did win the war on drugs, they won it with zero tolerance and hard punishment that they actually enforced and followed through. Iím not saying Singapore is 100% drug free but they sure donít have a drug problem. Iím also not saying thatís how we should win our war here (I know thatís what pissed you off), But to say a war on drugs canít be won is not true, thatís all I meant. You can prove me wrong if you want, Google Singapore.
I kinda understand you but thereís more to it than cops and drugs
PS, whatís your take on methÖ just curious
