    My question is why the town’s police force is riding around in high-powered gas-guzzling Dodge Chargers that get about 10 miles to the gallon ? Another example of government stupidity.

    Yeah because a Prius would be an excellent choice for high speed pursuit.

    I would doubt there is much high-speed pursuit in Smithfield. They don’t need to need to be killing innocent people anyway when most don’t have the training for such chases. Stupidity kills !

    If that’s the case, you’d be on life support by now.

    Who needs a police force? It’s just the nanny state sucking on your tax dollars, unelected and unaccountable. A County Sheriff is all you should need. Ibid

    The sad thing about David is his inability to express his own ideas with any clarity whatsoever.This relegates him to constant attacks on other posters who have different views. In a way, I actually feel sorry for him.
