NY isn’t overrun by anarchists, it’s overrun by liberals. (Check the affiliations of most politicians there, if you’re still in doubt.) Meanwhile, to answer your question, I would rather that cops were peace officers and not LEOs, but then again I’d also like a pony. So long as they remain LEOs, I’m not going to like them, even if they sometimes go after criminals who deserve it - such as the criminal banksters, as yet untouched by police hands. Now, having answered your question, do you care to answer any of mine?
On a slightly different aspect of the Denver police, if the Sheriff’s Mounted Posse were used, they pay for their own equipment, all expenses of training their horses, etc.
The horses were trained to not be panicked by Hippies Behaving Badly - I was one of those who volunteered to play the role of such a Hippy when the horses were being trained for the anticipated riots expected when the Dems were to gather in Denver.
We made lots of noise, banged the garbage cans loudly, and pelted the horses with chartruse tennis balls.
Well, that’s what they asked us to do, and it seemed to work.
Conclusion: Denver may not be the best place for a Hippy version of the Arab Spring delusion. Horses can’t easily detect the difference between horse exhaust and a prone Hippy protesting whatever.
I agree with you too.
Always remember the central part of Law Enforcement Officer is FORCE!
