I will start wtih a point I made in an earlier post. I believe the rampaging crime rate that we surrently suffer is not the result of low police pay but rather the lack of political will in the halls of power to unschackle the police.
I would suggest that the cops are distracted by all these social behaviour things that the pols have criminalized. Six months ago we were subject to harrassment for not wearing seat belts; Now they have the additional irritation of being harrassed fr holding a cell phone.
What are these blue clad centurions? Kindergarten teachers? That Cobb County legislator who proposed this intrusion should be hung by the testes in the public square. No one needs this Yankee madness. Messrs. Gilberand Sullivan had the answer in their Mikado. There's a song that says let the punishment fir the crime. A pool hustler should be sentenced to play a game "on a slate untrue , with a twisted cue and elliptical billiard balls." There must be a similar punishment out there just waiting for this putz.
I dont know what lind of world we live in, here in this city to busy to hate, like its too busy to enforce the law. Yesterday I was on I-20 eastbound out of Downtown where the HOV lane starts. Driving alone, I cant use it. But one after the other a bevy of young black chicks accessed the HOV land with their smart phones in their hands and lacking a second occupant. Obeying the law, am I the fool?
As i leave my posh Buckhead neighborhood where we privately pay cops to keep us and have yet a third layer of offduty LEO to back up our backup . I cross Piedmont to Garden Hills, the across Peachtree to West Wesley where I see i Sign that notifies visitors that there is off duty police protection in that neighborhood I travel further to Moores Mill where I see a sign that says the Margaret Mitchell neighborhood is also protected by off duty law enforcement. The devil in me has to ask therefore, " what are the on duty police personnel doing?
But i was born a cynic and i cant help it.
