Here’s a story about a nice little town in Alaska. As the LA Times published it you can see some of the inbred bias. But it is a nice story.

I think it's time for the mafia to go live/do their business there.....and business will probably be so great that the town population will go BOOM

Ummm, get a clue where this place is. I doubt very many people, if anyone, is going to be moving there anytime soon.

There is a city in California that has an unarmed police force. Insanity.

believe that armed officers would only create more trouble.


There are many ways to deal with dangerous situations," says City Administrator Raphael Murran. "If the police had guns, somebody might get shot. Somebody might get killed. Then there would be real trouble."







Payback is a BITCH!

Any PD where the Chief is on record as being in favor of gun control should be required to go about their general duties unarmed.

If they're REALLY good, maybe the citizens will give the cops their guns back one day.

they were incorportated when the got electricity? All the population has increased since then, and crime has increased since then?

I say the problem is electricity, and progress. Not nine Barney Fifes, being unarmed.

What a wonderful world it would be if the citizenry was always well-armed and the government was always unarmed.

I have come to the conclusion that virtually everything I was taught about history, government, and society (social studies) was wrong. I started school in the fall of '61. I have many biases that can easily be dated back to that period.

Essentially, we were taught that government was good and oposing the government was evil.

We were taught that the government was our benevolent overseer.

Thank God for Ronald Reagan. From him I learned that government by its very nature means the restriction of personal freedom. That the larger and more intrusive government is, that the less free we become.

I like the idea of unarmed police. Actually, I think that we are poorly served by professional law enforcement officers. I think that policing should be the domain of a rotating force of local citizens.

Our founding fathers warned against a standing army. Our military today does not threaten me. The "standing army" that I believe is the bane of freedom is the professional law enforcement officer. They are insulated from the general population. The LEO community is lead by politicians. Politics appeals more to takers than it does to makers. Most politicians and would-be politicians are liberal. Virtually all liberals are takers -- people unwilling to work for what they want. They see politics as a means of taking from those people they dislike.

Just because a LEO likes guns, cars, and girls, doesn't mean that he isn't a liberal at heart. The LEO community is over-populated with insular elitists who would strip us of all our rights and even our lives if it served their purpose.

Face it, if it weren't for all the paperwork, there would be many more shootings of civilians by LEOs.
