Serious answer, the police do not determine the sentence of a criminal. The police apprehend a suspect, when they believe they have enough evidence for a conviction. The suspect is put on trial, or pleads in front of a judge and the judge determines the sentence.
Don't you agree the the police should focus the serious felonies where people's lives are out at risk?

I mean, a stabbing is pretty minor compared to the recent violent crime spree.

I am not going to attempt to tell the police how to do their job. They have a difficult enough time without me or anyone else criticizing them for how they do it.

But I relate it to my job. I am at times juggling as many as a dozen projects. Some are priority projects with a deadline that I am expected to meet, while others either have a more distant deadline, or are just to be completed when I can.

My priority is those projects with the closest deadlines. I work on them as much as I can to complete them on time or ahead of time. At times, I hit a stone wall with that project. Maybe it is a mental block and I canít figure where I want to go with it, or maybe I am waiting on correspondence from someone, or I may need some reference material that isnít readily available.

Rather than just sit there pondering the project, or waiting for the information I need, I will move to the next project on the list and work on it. The first project doesnít leave my mind, but why waste time with it, when Iím not making any progress. After a bit of time on that second project I will come back to the first, and see what I can do. I may check on that reference material to see if it is ready, or call those people I am waiting for correspondence from or send them an e-mail or see if I have come up with a solution to my mental block. If things are in line I work on it a bit more and hopefully complete it, or work to the next block.

I go back to that second project again, or maybe even move onto a third. I eventually get my projects done, and most are done on time. But if I were to sit there and waste time on that one project when I canít really do anything would not be productive.

Now just because you arenít seeing a daily report from the police, doesnít mean they are not working on it. I would imagine they donít want to release much of the information they are gathering so that they donít give the suspects any information that could give the suspects information that they are suspects and allowing them the change to skip town.

So by "closest deadline" you mean that the police won't put as much effort into solving a crime if it's not a local victim? That doesn't sound right. Just because the hiker who was set on fire was from Alabama they figure he won't come back to testify so they aren't trying as hard to solve the crime?

Is that really a good way to use limited resources? I can understand if you have 10 lawns to cut every day, skip a few, it won't really matter, you can always come back the next day. But these are people's lives at stake here!

Where did you possibly get anything in your first paragraph from what I said?

I donít believe any police department cares where the victim is from, or where the suspects are from.

Using your theory, the police would only handle once case at a time, and all activities would be suspended till that case is solved.

Tell me, how will you feel when you call the police for a hit and run, and the answer you get is ďsorry we have a more serious crime to work on, handle it yourself.Ē

I am sure the police in your community donít solve all the crimes over night, and I am sure they donít prioritize the ones they work on based on the seriousness of the crime, or who the victims are, or where they are from, and I donít believe any police department operates that way.

This may be the most uninformed post I have read. You have no idea how a police department operates.

I'm sorry Mr. Gettysburg Man, Sir, I was a fool to doubt you. When the casino comes to Gettysburg will you PLEASE get me a job there? I know you have a lot of pull.

Your response to 11th PA was very enlightening and informative. You have shared a lot with all of us with that response.

You have made it clear to me that.
1. You donít read anything, you just glance over it and come up with some ďwittyĒ response. I have read the first paragraph of your response, and then went back to look at 11th PAís original post. I have no idea how you could get anything like that from his post. Maybe you can explain it to me.
2. You know nothing about production work. If you have ten yards to mow every day, you canít skip one or two today and get them later. If you skip one or two today, you just have that many more to do tomorrow and you will fall even more behind.
3. You know nothing about investigative or analytical work. There are times when doing investigative or analytical work when you hit a stonewall and just canít do anything. There are times in this kind of work when you arenít accomplishing anything, and just have to walk away for a while.
4. You know nothing about time/personnel management. You would rather pay a lot of people to continue work on a project where they are not accomplishing anything, thus wasting a lot of time and money, rather than step away for a while and complete other projects and then come back to it and possibly develop a solution.
5. You know nothing about business management. You would place all of your resources on one project when your business may have hundreds, but you would ignore all of these others just to address the one that you think is the most important, while ignoring all others. When it is highly possible when working on those other problems, you may find something could lead to handling the first.

All I can gather from your whacked out manifesto is that you need to get laid.

A stabbing is minor compared to the serious violent crimes and murders and whatnot that have taken place in Gettysburg. But a stabbing could easily ten into a murder.

Things aren't like West Side Story anymore. If a gang of criminals go after residents with knives, you can be sure that someone could be killed, and especially if they know the denial apologists, they act like everything's honky-dory when it is deadly not.

Wow Sofa Boy you are really trying to justify your Nerosis aren't you. You had go to August try and come up with a domestic dispute(not "gang related") to try and justify your LYING. You sure are sad.
