I'm compelled to comment on Mayor Garrad Marsh wanting a safety tax. Most would agree the public deserves a high level of public safety.
Under this tax increase, my understanding is that more officers and firemen would be hired. The raises they have forgone the past few years would be addressed. More police officers would certainly help.
It seems though, another problem arises. There are two parts to this puzzle. Part one: police make an arrest, bringing them to the second part of the puzzle, the jail, where sometimes they're cited and released before the officer can finish his report. Why?
