I really like the idea of a more active neighborhood watch type of thing.

I know that in my apartment complex we have had two series of break ins in the four years I've lived there. Both sets were only two or three break ins and the two sets were over a year apart (so five or six break ins total divided into two groupings). They both stopped as soon as signs went up warning the residents to be on the look out. Criminals don't want to have to work hard, and when there are an average of twelve people living in each building all now alert to the possibility of crime that gets harder for them.

Greater community involvement is, in my opinion, truly the best way to help curb crime.

Surveillance technology has come a long way up, and prices down so that is one way to tackle it. The benefits are increased chances of catching any offender through supply of evidence to try to prevent crime, and early detection of crime... not going to stop gun crime though. Might just need to harden up our facilities and vehicles to make them less vulnerable to small arms fire or forced entry. Release the drones with pepper spray, call Police, and go into lockdown!!!!!!!! (not in that order)

Was the cop trying to pull him over and the biker was just ignoring/unaware? That's crazy.

California Police Underage Sex Scandal Involves 28 Officers, 5 Departments

"How she met Officer Brendan O’Brien in the first place is disturbing in and of it itself. Guap says she was working the streets as a prostitute. She says she was underage at the time, which would legally make her a victim of child sex trafficking. A pimp was chasing her down a street one day in Oakland when she saw O’Brien. “He saved me when I was 17,” Guap told CNN in a phone conversation.

“Instead of taking me to jail, we just kind of started something there, you know.”

of course you can say "well she was a hooker, so what?"

does it matter, YOU TELL ME: why or why not?

"In the video, Edwards follows Wilkens for some time before Wilkens stops. In his lawsuit, Wilkens said he couldn’t hear the siren, and his small rearview mirror did not show the lights on the unmarked car, which are located on the car’s grille, not on its roof.

Being raised Jewish, my community and the rabbis and even the folks I met when I spent some time in Israel all said "Jews" or even "The Jews", and rarely if ever did I hear the term "Jewish People" being given preference. This is a nonissue for the Jews.
