Far be it for me to criticize a police agency, but doesn't it strike you as a bit odd that SCPD has "Performance Objectives" for each officer to write traffic tickets every month (35), or they are threatened with disciplinary action? That's also why the last week of the month sees officers stopping motorists by the bushel for everything from cracked windshields to 3 mph. over the limit? While this is all fine and nice, why doesn't this agency establish "Performance Objectives" for catching burglars, arsonists (remember, Penny Park - 2X), thieves, woman beaters and drug addicts -- not to mention drive-by shooters and murderers? Someone needs to question this agency's inner workings and change 'Em, Yes? Call the Mayor, City Councillors and spread the word -- put pressure on the right people. Fine, write traffic tickets, but back that up with stats to show the "other" real criminal offenders are being ID'ed, charged and prosecuted -- then support your local Municipal Court Judge and staff with traffic enforcement!
