Quit bragging

=== Airport police Sgt. Jim Holcomb said the arrests might seem unusual, but officers made 61 arrests at checkpoints in 2008. Offenses included weapons, narcotics and fireworks possession, and drunken driving.====

Lets see that works out to ONE arrest every SIX DAYS ! Boy thats a really lousy batting average. It would be intetesting to know how many of those arrests were for offenses with no nexis to terrorism such as DUI, Drug possession, Warrants, etc. I'm sure a few were for weapons, but probably 'run of the mill' offenders and no one intent on doing harm at the airport.

I love it when the police brag about the number of arrests but dont mention how many actually applied to the mission.

One arrest every six days. Check points manned daily by atleast 4 police officers @ 100K a piece. Accounting for days off and shift work the number of officers assigned is porbably closer to 12. So.... ONE MILLION TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS for 61 nuisance arrests unrelated to terrorism.

Certainly this can be spent somewhere that would really help to make us safer.
