Thank you...

It's time to check up on Best-of-Craigslist again. There's several gems as always, but notably a rant from an LA-area cop.

Guys, thanks. Really. Thank you for doing the job. Every one of you makes a difference. Look around the world at all the places that don't have adequate, honest, professional police protection. Without you, that's us. Missing kids who stay missing. Violent criminals becoming neighborhood tyrants. Property losses that would only get worse if reported--because the responder would want a piece of the pie, too. (I live near San Diego, the stories I hear from people who cross into Tijuana are an offensive disgrace.) Frighteningly unsafe streets to walk on, let alone drive.

Yes, there's a few assholes. But they're vastly outnumbered. Yes, in a lot of urban locales, we need to support and equip you better. Please don't give up on us, make sure your union leadership has the sense to remind us what you need when elections come around, so we can vote in better management. (Again, San Diego. It's Wrong that I sat on a DUI trial jury and watched a city officer testify, who'd had hours of sleep in the single digits over the previous three days.)
