Police Need More Gas MoneyPosted by on Tuesday, November 1st, 2011
I’ve posted here before about why you should not rely on the police for your safety. You should also not talk to them unless necessary, or unless you want to have your plates and identification run through their system “just in case”.
Are you relying on the police to keep you safe? Do you expect to have a quick response when you call 9-1-1? If you live in Smithfield, North Carolina, I’d be coming up with a back-up plan if I were you. Actually, I’d come up with another plan no matter where I live, but it is definitely more salient to discuss the recent revelations in Smithfield. The police there have said that they are going to stop investigating some crimes and stop responding to some emergency calls because of the price of gas.
The more I think about it, the more I realize this may be good news for residents of Smithfield. Maybe they won’t have time to arrest and fine people for directing traffic, collecting money for cancer research, or making sure people get their kids taken away.
