Most people would say that if your employees are working more than 40 hours a week to provide a service, then that employer doesn't have enough staffing.

Cops have always made OT. But instead of deploying them to places where there is actual violent crime, they’re deployed to the highest bidder. How does this protect and serve? You get police protection, if you can afford it? Will MPD be able to deploy more cops to neighborhoods experiencing high levels of violence? Or will they be restricted by having a contract to rent them out to someone else? You gonna go tell a neighborhood that has had a dozen murders this year that they can have more cops, it’s just $2k a night.

Yep. If the BID cash is paying for it, the richer neighborhoods get police and the poorer ones don’t. Crime gets worse EOTR and in traditionally underserved areas. History repeats itself.

I thought all violent places wanted less police; wanted to defund them and replace with community interventionists. You are saying more police presence is good for communities?

Are they being replaced with other solution like you said? Or is the money just being used less efficiently in places that have rich people?

Oh you just called their bluff.

This is what they wanted until they realize violent crime is out of control and now they are begging for them back LMFAO

Interesting. Do you have any data that backs up your thought or are you just making stupid generalizations based off articles you only read the headlines of and random internet comments?
