Hire some judges that will actually put the criminals in jail or prison for the crimes they commit, and we won't need to spend any extra money on police. Of course, the police will only find some other fabricated reason to increase their ranks and further increase their bureaucracy. Next to the correctional flunkies, the local California PD's are the most overcompensated public employees on the planet. Can you say Legislated Overtime?

you absolutely right. the city council will not admit to the infestation in stockton. they caused. there is a saying, grow a tree, the roots are the city council, the trunk are the people, and the branches are the police and firemen, keep cutting the branches, it can not protect the trunk, not even the roots (city council) will, eventually the whole tree will die. and the city council still want to keep CUTTING, till there is no more branches. then who is going to protect stockton????
