Maybe the police should be patrolling the streets instead of sitting in their cars talking. Sometimes their are 3 cars just hanging out in a parking lot.

talking would be refreshing how abuot parked or hidden between cars fast asleep on the overnight shift at a local firehouse in the first precent,no one at 911 says anything when the gps doesnt move for a couple of hours,but then gps can't be used for discipline according to the union ( se seaford cop at misstress house 62 times)
