Back in the 1980s Cops hadda actually Bring Ya In and run a "Jacket"...

Mugshot / Fingerprints were still Inkpads n paper in a Manilla Folder in a FILE CABINET

Therefore worst cases or high Felonies got 1st /2nd prioity..

My "contention" is that the streets ain't any "Safer" today. ..

Atleast back in the 80s thru Mid 1990s was okay To "Defend" Property..

And before all this Technology Computer crap ya could just get rid of a "Body" like it never "existed".

Most of life's problems can be solved with a backhoe and a few bags of lye.

And I'm sure we've all met that dispatcher type that would make the world a better place if only you could hoof him in the nuts three or four times each day before you've had coffee or breakfast.

Sez one with experience.

You'll feel a lot safer if you quit watching TV/cable news that sensationalizes every violent crime. No Birch-o, there is not an evil thug behind every car or tree, waiting to jump you.

Maybe not, but what do the Boy Scouts always say?

Be prepared

Being scared shitless over your shadow while walking down the street because some talking head on cable news did their damdest to convince you something that happened 1000 miles away is an everyday occurrence on your block in your neighborhood is just plain stupid.

That dont change my opinion that folks oughta be able to carry to defend themselves... whether the trouble everybody knows about is 1000 miles away or right down the street
