I give the top honors to Joanne Schivley for declaring the ongoing war in this town between deeply divided factions. Followed by Tony Pearsall, Doug Keener, now the Gomers, a mob united in groupthink.

It must feel good to point the finger at someone and blame them for whatever ails us. The next time be informed about those you believe are able to lead and make decisions that affect us all for a long time!

No, I don't mind that you say something, but I wish it were something I can understand.
...a huge problem somewhere that cheaper police can not solve.

Having problems is not new to Vallejo, although many try to sweep that under the rug and make relative newcomers believe that in the good old days Vallejo had nothing but choir boys and girls populating the streets. Vallejo, even in the good old days, brought us many First's, having a somewhat tainted reputation of being tough, free and loose is just one of those....

I also believe that the problems we are having, whatever they are take your pick, can not be resolved by expensive police ....or for that matter expensive anything. Throwing money at "things" does not necessarily fix the problem, changing ones attitude and being an observant, alert and involved individual may.

Auto theft comes and goes in waves. Times are tough, but the urge to possess something knowing full well one will never be able to afford it, remains at a high. So those criminally inclined do take what they believe is rightfully theirs, they deserve it.
Ripping off a throw down vehicle and having a joyride with it is apparently no longer en vogue, nothing but the best on four wheels will do.

So thinning the criminal hoards will be really challenging, especially when those that are tasked with the thinning are themselves spread thin, like butter plugging the holes on a baguette, just barely there.....

There is nothing to condemn and I believe I did not attempt to. I simply did not understand what you were trying to convey.
