    Considering staffing, funding, cops do well
    Here we go again - some guy who can't obey simple traffic and parking laws complaining about the police ("More patrolling, please," Oct. 12). Somehow, letter writer Robert Hammond's traffic violations equate to kids being shot by some deranged madman. Unfortunately, public safety funding is not adequate to put a policeman (or 10 of them) at every school, on every corner, etc. Because of this, police work tends to be reactive instead of proactive. With average national staffing standards, police departments generally tend to respond to crimes after the fact, as opposed to preventing them.
    The agencies that responded to the Platte Canyon High School incident did an amazingly professional job, using lessons learned from past school shooting tragedies.
    No realistic amount of security and enforcement effort will dissuade an armed madman from doing what he sets out to do, and Hammond's argument is just ridiculous. If police officers weren't giving him tickets, they could have prevented this tragic event, or others like it? Please. If people like Hammond obeyed the law, they wouldn't be getting speeding tickets and maybe the police could be doing something else.
    Instead of whining about his poor traffic record, Hammond could have (and should have) used the time he took to write his complaint to instead commend the law enforcement officers of this nation for their willingness to put their lives on the line to protect us from the evils around us. That patrolman Hammond denigrated as somehow undeserving of his title probably has more courage and moral fortitude in his big toe than Hammond has in his entire body. John McAdam

    We can't blame Bo for his douchetasticness. It's a genetic disfunction often called retardation. That and he has some sand in his vagina.:haha:
