I think you should be helping the Mayor, Police Dept, etc to clean your city whatever it takes. that your place of residence so make an effort. and its not but one Frank Melton and he can't be duplicated.

Yea well,seatbelt checkpoints arent gonna clean this city,sure theyll fund the police dept. and get them neat new taser guns and 10mm's,but they know where the crime really is and they know what it takes to stop it. Effort.Its much easier to sit on your ass at a roadblock and write citations than it is to chase a crackhead through Community Park or Algiers.You cant eat a jelly-donut at full-stride. Melton is no different than a common criminal,the end doesnt justify the means thats why his ass is locked-up. Patrol cars should "patrol",and thats the downside to roadblocks..while lining thier pockets w/ checkpoints the cops are neglecting the rest of the city they should be patrolling.

Yes it's sad these police are acting as cowboys and not really cleaning up the crime at the source.
