Now I know it's easy to blame people and say the police aren't doing their jobs properly, but maybe we should just look at a long term plan and accountability. How many cops were on duty those nights? WHere were they located (yes the police can tell EXACTLY where each vehicle is down to the second)
I agree with some of the other posts. I RARELY see police in my area on a "beat" walking or driving (I live 2 blocks west of the Coast office). The only time I see police in my area is about every 2 months when they set up a trap on Cunard Street at the end of Moran and check for seat belts, registration etc... The thing which I have noticed very often; and is concerning to me is the concentration and the number of police officers driving up and down spring garden road. I frequent Rogues Roost often for a bite and beer, and from the great vantage point there, have literally counted the number of police vehicles I have seen drive by in a 1 1/2 hr span and I've seen up to 10... Seems like the cops also consider it "skin garden road"? How about looking for crime across the city rather than cruizing up and down spring garden?
