Why criticize police when you don't know all the facts?

Not the police fault at all they catch them then the justice system lets them out. This person will be out in a couple of hours with another court date that this person will probably fail to attend, I would say the justice system should change the way they do things, maybe if they skip court then the next time keep them incarcerated till the court date and increase the penalty and sentence.

WE live in S.S.M with all the lintel we have at our reach now, you would think there is a better system to keep up to date on our parole violations. I would like to see more traffic violations. Too many people driving around with burnt out headlamps and tailamps, with the weather and comman sense we do not need a death due to a burnt out lamp.

Sorry to break it to ya but common sense is a word that no longer exists in this city. Hasent been around in a while.

WTF.. little grandma driving her buick with a headlight out = Life in prison ?
SharingNeedles 1/9/2014 10:06:09 AM Report

Sorry...Maybe thats too far,
Or is it..considering you wanna punish the honest.

Probably just a passenger in a car and they stumbled on her by accident.

Yes I agree cops need to issue more tickets for smaller infractions like burnt lights, yappers on phones, and I still see people drive without seatbelts. I would think I have plenty of common sense, I always let the driver know that they have a light burnt out(sometimes following them out of my way). All are very thankful that I let them know. As for the yappers I usually get a dirty look for interupting their phone call.... but this year I have an air horn for a louder interuption!!

Make them post cash bail. Maybe they will go to court and not miss their court date. Just a thought.

It's probation she breached, not parole.

probation - (law) a way of dealing with offenders without imprisoning them; a defendant found guilty of a crime is released by the court without imprisonment subject to conditions imposed by the court; "probation is part of the sentencing process"

parole - (law) a conditional release from imprisonment that entitles the person to serve the remainder of the sentence outside the prison as long as the terms of release are complied with

Big difference between the two.

Ducky58, I like your idea!

I suppose this City is no different than any other, People just enjoy Cop Bashing .

I am surprised the "Why are they wasting time on this stuff when they should be out catching REAL Criminals?" Gang hasn't arrived.

Are our Cops perfect ? hell NO but even when they are right, someone will find something wrong .

Why don't some you nay sayers go out and form a "Citizens on Patrol" group or something ?...oh right it's not your job , my bad .

So why are you all so quick to tell them they are doing their job wrong ?

I like the poster who will let People know they have a light burnt out ,or give a toot to the cell phone users behind the wheel.

Just a guess ,but I'm thinking at least twenty four People knew where this Women was ,but none of them wanted to get involved or rat her out.

Get involved! report things you see or know ,or just hush about how it could be done better.

I agree the system sucks,and some Cops do too ,but to imply they couldn't find her?

I am sure they could have pulled a couple Cops off regular duty to go find her .then they would only have a cpl hundred more to go get.

Then in a couple of days they could start from the top again.

Quite honestly we need a better justice system for these people who like to break the law. A lot of these people think they are higher then the law anyways and even after they r arrested with a slap on the wrist and some conditions and maybe released with a surety they continue to breach or break conditions thinking/knowing they will not get caught. Harsher sentencing and punishment may knock some sense into these law breakers. What about the three strike rule? Third strike: lock them up and throw away the key!!

I was always told common sense is so common now a days :-)
Sam C 1/9/2014 2:45:43 PM Report

engineguy... we don't know what she was to have been in court for. Do we want the Police using resources to track down someone who missed court for a relatively minor offense?

And when would they be looking for these miscreants -- while on their way to yet another domestic disturbance, or responding to a break-and-enter or assault.

Sam C just nailed it. Spend the money and time on the punks who keep robbing Mac's for their crack money.
