"Police Details Save Lives"Submitted by TwelveOhOne on Wed, 07/24/2013 - 03:58
I was behind a truck the other day with a bumper sticker, "Police details save lives." The reason for this sticker is to promote the idea that having police staffing the "flagging" operations will save more lives than staffing these positions with lower-paid employees who can still wave a flag and direct traffic.
However, when I read this I thought of another perspective: that, by gathering information on the public servants, we can help prevent them from taking inappropriate evil actions and thereby save lives.
Evil actions being of course things like robbery (fines), kidnapping (arrest/imprisonment) and murder (killing during apprehension or after trial).
So if we can gather and share details of all public servants, we will be assisting the effort in preserving life. Police details truly do save lives.
