Right! If the funds used are to pay regular time for individuals to address the issues on National and State public lands that would be great. It would also be great that when these grants are received they are used to during regular hours to address the meth and cocaine problems within our cities, but will it?
When this funding address the needs of the user or arrest, book em, and place more costs towards an already strained legal system? Probably not.
The community has to address this, not by requesting more law enforcement to fight this alone, but to address local health, education, housing and employment issues. Until this is done, we are too dependent on the government to solve our problems that began at home!
This cartoon demonstrates a lot of truth in how some drivers in our area believe they are in the right by their actions creating an unsafe environment for pedestrians. On few streets, like H & I and 4th & 5th Streets in Eureka they should just establish pullover lanes for drive-thru citations. Have a police officer one a raise pedestal and they only need to point at you and you go a couple blocks to receive your citation for driving too fast or using your cell phone, two of the most common mistakes seen.
More traffic law enforcement during the day would be great!
Could be true!
