I’m sure the unarmed police are the ones that will be guarding him and his family and, of course, the rest of the irreplaceable city government officials.

$12.5 billion for 63 cops? Have they been audited lately?

Harrisburg, PA, has done something similar.

40+ civilian glorified social workers.

They can otherwise be known as the dead and the undead.

For their own safety, the unarmed officers need identifiable uniforms so armed assailants know not to shoot them. May I suggest bright pink uniforms. After all, the safety of the unarmed officers should be a priority.

That’s quite a budget for a city of 30,000-ish. Property taxes there must be insane!

Roger Miller song England Swings:

England swings like a pendulum do
Bobbies on bicycles, two by two
Westminster Abbey, the tower of Big Ben
The rosy-red cheeks of the little children
///////////////////////////////////////////////

So our unarmed “bobbies” will be unarmed and cheerful about talking criminals in delirium from pcp or meth out of slashing people with a butcher knife or shooting someone six times?

Pink police uniforms....
LOL

Much better than the Hare Krishna chanters’ robes. Although both groups are unarmed.

Aw, c’mon! They didn’t want the two groups to be named “armed” and “dangerous”??? Maybe one group should be named “law” and the other group “order”. The cliches write themselves...

And criminals can split the city into two separate zones. The probably not ( armed ) and the anything goes ( unarmed ) zones.

And to think Ithaca once made guns. These kids grandparents would turn them across their knee and tan their bottoms.
