    Hmmmmm...Well, this being Tallahassee, all we REALLY need to do is figure out where this criminal's mother (or grandmother) lives. Send an officer there to pick up the criminal, who will be hiding in his old bedroom. Probably in the closet.

    I swear Walt McNeil had a much better handle on these crimes when he was chief. On the other hand, if each year's budget constantly calls for reduction in funds for necessary services like police, fire/EMS, and education, what else do you expect to happen? To top that off, now Rick Scott wants to cut the retirement for these jobs?????? Glad I got my permit because until priorities change, this crap will unfortunately continue.

    Police want pensions based on having a dangerous job. Citizens are by far the victims of violence, robbery, rape, and murder. At least police are provided guns and equipment to protect themselves. Citizens are often poor and defensless and rarely have half the pension of a LEO. Prevent and solve more crimes before complaining about having to work and contribute to your pension like the rest of us.

    I guess the people in Tallahassee have no problem with the lack of aggression with the local police. They just show up, take a report and go pile up at Chili's with the rest of the cops on the shift.
