Qwyjibo, you must keep in mind, the poster you quoted, isn't exactly anything more than a 25 or so year old who hasn't accomplished shit with their life, or ever will for that matter. So any attempt to help make them a better poster is useless.

Default Re: What's the point of cops?

Ignorance and failure at reading comprehension all throughout this thread. If you bother to read the posts as opposed to just bitching why someone is questioning shit you never question, you'd see my problem is with the state of law enforcement, not law enforcement in general. If everyone really felt the cops protected them from things, this country wouldn't be going gun crazy.

Law enforcement needs a drastic overhaul. And while i enjoy many of the leisure this country has to offer, i'm not entirely against a lot of it being taken away in favor of a safer environment.

Don't act like i'm not making any sense, especially in this day and age where you can get killed anywhere at anytime. So i ask again, what is the point of law enforcement if they aren't actually deterring the major crimes we expect them to?

Just because law enforcement may not be effective in its purpose does not mean it doesn't have a purpose. Be more specific on what your expectations of law enforcement are and define major crimes. Seems like you're suggesting law enforcement should be omniscient. But one thing is for sure, society cannot fully protect against an individual that does not buy into its values.

So what's your solution instead of creating dumbass threads like these? Law Enforcement works as intended to. Unfortunately for the U.S that's the hardest country to enforce the laws that blow.

Where is your reading comprehension, he clearly offered having special mind readers attached to complex computer systems that could prevent crime before it happened as the major solution to all our problems. What about corruption at the top? Just hire more Tom Cruises, double their pay if you must, we need an army of short couch-jumping scientologists to protect us from all the evils of the world

That was the Mayor of NYC who said that.

There has been numerous studies done that show crime rates drop whenever police forces are better funded and more officers are hired...
