All right, I can understand that with the city being broke some changes have to be made. Any reasonable person can understand that. What I am having trouble muddling through is that it if they don't have time to respond to a crime, how is it they are able to give out traffic tickets and the dreaded boot with seemingly 100% perfection. As a citizen, I would rather police address crime and in disregard minor traffic infractions. Not being a police officer or a lawyer there is probably something here I'm missing.
There's money in handing out citations and the boot, and drug arrests.
No money, just risk, in clearing houses or running toward the sound of guns.
Follow the money.
