is important, and not widely known. I'm a believer in the little person being able to
create change by means of a pen and paper or a telephone. I plan on getting to work
right after I post this. I don't believe the citizens of this city quite understand what
they are embarking on. The Fayetteville Police Department works under the theory
of Problem Orientated Policing, defined here. It involve a high police presence in
high crime areas.
on police searches at traffic stop
Some of my fav responses:
|This is the most ridiculously ludicrous idea I have ever heard.|
All they have done is to stoke the flames of racial divide in this city and we will all rue the day
|The All-American City is on the brink; it's self destructing in its own misery. I can't think of better time to get out; get out if you can.|
|I don't care what color you are, if the police think you may be breaking the law, they should have to opportunity to take proactive, legal, measures to protect the society. That's why it's referred to as "proactive". I'm all for stopping a crime before it turns into a worse crime. Racism will always exist, sadly. But no group of people are all racists|
|Okay, as a Black Fayetteville resident, I’m all for the police using better judgment in conducting searches and all, but this is getting ridiculous. Completely stopping the police from doing their jobs is the epitome of stupidity.|
|Why don't we tie one hand behind their back and give them one bullet. Each race should not be compared to number of consents,stops or anything except number of crimes per that race.|
Don't handcuff the Police if you have a problem.
|I have been working in the Criminal Justice system for almost 50 years and this is the dumbest, most stupid thing the council could ever do. I think the council believes that every citizen should be able to drive up to every street corner and buy illegal drugs from the local drug dealer??? Most drugs are found during vehicle searches.|
|The Fayetteville City Council needs to stay out of the Police Department's business. They know nothing about law enforcement! The next murder may have been prevented because of such a search! Let the police department do their core mission!|

On a side note, there are douche bags in EVERY profession. I"m going to stop now, before I can not stop.
