Police do their job despite crime

As crime continues to sour in the not-so-famous town of Vallejo, we can only count on a handful of dedicated police officers to put out their all in daily duty in protecting us from the elements of crime throughout this city.

To suggest that some of our officers are putting in too much overtime and should restrict the time of their various shifts to save the city money is far from a dream, I hate to say for Vallejo anymore.

More new officers is a start and enforcement of existing laws on the books can’t hurt. Then there are the fancy lawyers who want to give new trials to killers and parolees who roam our streets at will, looking for a house to break in to or a lone person to mug.

While you sleep, those handful of officers are out there trying to make a difference in our once-proud town because they have families, too, and they want the best for them also. We must continue to lock up the bad guys and let our officers do their jobs protecting us, no matter how much it costs. Don’t you agree?

    It's easy to blame lawyers or politicians for things we don't like about our overtaxed, underfunded legal system But the truth is it is OUR system. The laws the courts enforce laws are drafted and passed by our representatives. If we don't like a law, we have the power to change it; a right not enjoyed in many countries and a particularly poignant reminder as we celebrate Martin Luther King day.

    How much of Vallejo's problems can be blamed on the leadership of Vallejo over the past so many decades? Financial mismanagement is the first thing that comes to mind. It seems that financial mismanagement is only the visible manifestation of years of malfeasants. For what reasons, I'll let you in Vallejo reflect. But consider this, Fairfield is going the same way... as is Vacaville. With all of the benefits of location and resources and fine weather, it must really take some lunk-head leadership to turn the pearls of Solano County into the sewers of Solano County. People... hold your "leaders" accountable. With Quinn leaving his position as City Manager in Fairfield, it makes me think of rats leaving a sinking ship. This is a sign, people of Fairfield, that your city is about to sink to a new low. Hold your "leaders" accountable or live in a sewer. Your choice.
