    Ashley -- and how exactly would that have prevented this family's tragedy? Dad with a gun would have been the best deterrent in this situation, not a cop on the scene. I will always resist the kind of police state you advocate.

  3. KillerB, there is a lot of recklessness in LV and NLV. More police presence means more visibility and faster response time to incidents. I know that municipalities are trying to shave budgets but critical responds like police, and firefighters aren't the way to go. LV and NLV have big problems with addiction, homelessness, and forms of poverty. Put that together and you get some pretty desperate people, and desperate or not they know if a police office is within distance they cant violently attack someone in broad daylight with a weapon and get away with it. We need more police in LV and NLV.
