      I don’t know why they need body armor. They arrest 20 year olds that have been drinking too much to put up a fight. They don’t really care about taking action against real crime. If so, I would love to hear if they caught the guys that went up and down my street breaking into cars eventually stealing one. I have to say I doubt it. I wouldn’t think they could catch a car thief on a horse. Also, while we are at it, I am not sure why they need new cars. It is not like they are putting tons of wear and tear on them. I don’t remember many high speed chases. Oh wait, yes I do. The one my friend had to be involved in because the cops couldn’t catch the criminals after the third time his house was robbed in three nights.

      Well obviously you dont have a clue about Law Enforcement. Anytime you drive vehicles 24 hours a day they are obviously being warn down. You would have to be clueless to think cops dont need vests. And if its a bunch of drunk 20 year olds that need to be arrested and so beit. And just because the cops didnt solve your problem doesnt mean they need to be bashed because obviously they were solving some one else’s!
