At least they aren't fully brain dead out west.

Outraged residents in rural Oregon have formed amateur armed patrol groups to replace the budget-stricken police department.
The unusual move comes after Josephine County sheriff announced officials will now only respond to life-threatening situations after losing necessary government grants.
But county governors, fearful of anarchy, have condemned the organisation, urging citizens to hike their taxes instead.
The conflict arose after the national government stopped paying the county's federal timber subsidies - reimbursment for working on the forest - and proposed a tax hike instead.

As of January 1st, Metro in Vegas will no longer be responding to minor non-injury auto accidents. We'll have to form an armed posse for accident report writing.

While I think you were being sarcastic, California police have not been responding to minor non-injury auto accidents or non injury auto thefts for well over 30 years. You take yourself down to the police department and fill out a counter report.

He's implying something that isn't actually true.

Breaking an entering may or may not be life threatening, unless the criminal is still inside the house.

Biggie rep, are you whining again? You and your kind are the ones demanding the government cut the spending. They did and the police departments are getting less money. Maybe the hated government will cut spending to the point where the police won't answer any calls. That way, you and your posse can form your vigilante group. So....

Quit whining. You got what you wanted. Quit whining.

While I have no doubt the initial players in the people's militia have their hearts in the right place?

Power unchecked by just laws quickly become abusive.

Count on that, folks.


who says it will be unchecked

The Bush economic woes were mainly brought about Clinton's mistakes in the nineties. Both parties have been guilty of overspending for decades, but Clinton's policies on home mortgages and tech stocks combined with his ineptness as CIC set up an economy on the downslide when Bush took office. Clinton's incompetence as CIC set up 9-11 which hurt our economy and cost lives.

In Mesa, AZ they did a neat thing in creating civilian police employees to respond to calls where the task would be nothing more than filling out a report and gathering simple evidence like fingerprints and photos. So if your car was broken into, house burglarized, etc. you don't get a cop taken off patrol you get the civilian investigator who costs less than a cop in both salary/pension and equipment.

They also have a program with Mesa FD where they have smaller trucks that just have one paramedic and one nurse practitioner to respond to medical calls. Studies showed that the majority of their calls were for relatively minor medical issues, so instead of an expensive fire truck with four fireman showing up when someone calls 911 for man down you get the smaller/cheaper team that can either treat minor medical in the field or administer care until the ambulance or life flight arrives.
