    PBA Pres Rivera, 'get yourself some firearms, protect yourself, we won't be able to.'

    The Miami-Dade Police Benevolent Association fired back after the proposal, saying public safety is paramount and these proposed cuts will have a negative impact. John Rivera, president of the Miami-Dade Police Benevolent Association, said, "If the mayor's not going to provide security, then my recommendation, as an experienced law enforcement officer for nearly 40 years, is either buy yourself an attack dog, put bars on your windows and doors and get yourself some firearms because you're going to have to protect yourselves. We won't be able to."

    Other ways the mayor is looking to save money includes: Postponement of correctional and police officer training classes

    Not good. Cops are already several times more likely to commit a firearms offense than a CWFL holder, according to econometrician John Lott.
    “If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.

    The police data on total annual offenses also provide a direct comparison for Florida and Texas. The rate of all crimes committed by police is 0.124 percent – a number about 6 times higher than the rate for in Texas and about 10 times higher than for Florida.


    [FN 6] This is surely an underestimate of the true rate of crime by police because it is derived solely from news reports and not all crimes by police will get media attention. Stinson, Liederbach and Freiburger, “Exit Strategy: An Exploration of Late-Stage Police Crime,” Police Quarterly, December 2010 13: 413-435 (http://pqx.sagepub.com/content/13/4/413.full.pdf). The number of full-time law enforcement employees in 2006 is available here (http://www2.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2006/data/table_70.html).
