    Now that is what I call community policing.

    The only thing that trouble me about this is that it took the local Sheriff telling people to protect themselves to get everyone to go and by their own firearms.

    Do the citizens of this Ohio county have their heads so deep in the sand that they don't know about the funding situation with the local police? Are they so clueless that they don't know about the crime in their own area? Are they such brainwashed sheeple that they need to have some sort of official declaration from the local "authorities" that it's OK to protect yourself to justify doing so?

    You'd think that they would have ALREADY been a well-armed populace, since this funding cutback has been a while in the making.

    But at least the citizens of this OH county are moving in the right direction. I've got to give them credit for that...

    It would appear that for many the answer to these questions is, Yes they are.

    Citizens everywhere have their head in the sands, but mostly because of the non-stop barrage of propaganda from the "officials" and media. I am glad this county did what was right and admitted "hey we don't have it under control". Most counties, States, Federal Government are refusing to admit this.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Not enough people think logically. I've had people repeat the peta-esque mantra of animals chewing their foot off to escape a trap, and the BS of 10 nontarget "trash" animals being caught for every target animal. If anyone actually mulled over this "info", they should conclude that it is in error, otherwise why bother to even trap? Think about it- if all these animals chew their feet off and you have to catch 100 bunnies, cats,and dogs, for every 10 foxes and raccoons, at least 3 of which chewed out before you got there, why waste your time? [ the truth is that based on my first hand experience, very very few animals twist out- chewing out is almost nonexistant, and that on average I catch 10 foxes per 1nontarget animal, which tends to be cats, which aren't even injured beyond edema in the paw, so I can let them go alive.]

    Hmm, how many of you have fallen for the trapping fallacies? It is human nature to dumb down from time to time for even the free thinkers and book worm nerds. it is even more human nature for the majority to let someone else think for them.



    Now, to address the article's theme...Baltimore city is threatening big cuts to the PD and FD and lots of people are moaning and groaning. I don't expect individuals to invest in fire fighting equipment and training for their own homes and block, however there is something called "volunteer FD". In regards to police, it would sure be nice if the officials in Baltimore would tell citizens to arm themselves due to the PD cuts, but the city is so anti gun and so full of elected rats, that will never happen. The city sheeple should be demanding shall-issue or unlisc OC, so they can do nightly neighborhood patrols, and go armed. Heck it is legal now to OC a long gun in the city as far as I know, but officials would never "allow" it. They would rather take whats left of the PD and have good citizens get the JBT for such actions, than leave them alone and do police stuff like watching gangs and druggies.

    Back some years ago I was part of a night neighborhood patrol. My OC was my dog, and our group was never jacked up whenI was present. But one night, another group had only some little yappy dog, and they got robbed at gunpoint!

    As you point out there are Volunteer FDs in many places but, speaking as a former vollie and then paid firefighter, most cities, once they make the move from volunteer to paid staffing are extreamly adverse to resume any sort of volunteer fire program. I've seen it go so far as to cut services almost completely out but refusing to allow citizens to leagally set up volunteer fire districts or programs in those areas.

    As for the cuts to the Sheriff's Department, he needs to get a unpaid Reserve/Auxillary program going and have those officers on the street until he gets the funds to hire more paid staff. Then again, if he does that he risks not getting the tax passed.
