Pat, people in prison have been suing for decades for "rights" they think they should have. I agree with you that prison should be prison, but the lawsuits that prisoners have won has taken our penal system and made a joke of it.
I voted that I feel safe in Payson, and I actually am. I cannot see how so far, 12 people, have voted that they are not safe here. What is unsafe about Payson, AZ.?
It happens everywhere. They are providing backup. True, it might leave another area open to crime, but only if the criminals know exactly when something like the arrest above is going to happen, which they don't. It's better to have backup, and that being multi-jurisdictional (i.e. Payson Police, County Sheriff and DPS) than to have one officer going it alone. That's how they get hurt or killed.
Good going PPD on the arrest.
So Roundup staff,
You don't like the way the new Governor has set the budget, then why not do an article on how you would like to see the State budget the money and provide for budget shortfalls. C'mon, it's easy to sit here in Payson and gripe about schools getting shorted once again, but you never say how you, the Roundup Editorial Staff would do it better.
Because of Federal and State requirements due to law suits, that's why. But you're right, to bad we can't go back to that way of running them.
If we have a class in economics, we need to make sure of two things:
1... You teach the students that you don't spend what you don't have.
2... All politicians are required to take the class!
What's the big deal? Many of the children in our community can't even speak English properly. Teach them Spanish or Mandarin - they are the future unfortunately.
I like the idea of having to pass a civics test. But I hope the curriculum that they teach for the test and the test itself will be based on the Constitution and not some other liberal curriculum. Then more kids will know their rights and responsibilities, and that can only be good in both the short term and the long run.
Agreed. That's why we call them "Outlaws" because they don't follow the laws. If only Government could figure that out.
Well said, Andy.
