Unfortunately it usually takes people to be in a situation where these services are needed to be appreciated. I'm sure a lot of the people complaining about their pay would be the first to complain about their response times and lack of patrols if their home were broken into. Same goes for the fire department.Look at the UPD and the surronding valley. UPD risk their lives all the time, they are constanly dealing with dangerous situations, they should be doubled up on patrol at all times, why cant these city scums stop breaking the laws, the gangsters w guns and drugs and robberies and shoot outs. the cops are out protecting us while these ghetto thugs are ruining the city. focus your hate on them not the police
The natural reaction for people is to run away from dangerous situation, myself included, these people are paid to run into it.
