Armed task force to patrol streets
Police chief says citizens could be subject to ID checks


In response to a recent increase in crime, Paragould Mayor Mike Gaskill and Police Chief Todd Stovall offered residents at a town hall meeting Thursday night at West View Baptist Church what could be considered an extreme solution — armed officers patrolling the streets on foot.

Stovall told the group of almost 40 residents that beginning in 2013, the department would deploy a new street crimes unit to high crime areas on foot to take back the streets.

"[Police are] going to be in SWAT gear and have AR-15s around their neck," Stovall said. "If you're out walking, we're going to stop you, ask why you're out walking, check for your ID."

Stovall said while some people may be offended by the actions of his department, they should not be.

"We're going to do it to everybody," he said. "Criminals don't like being talked to."

Gaskill backed Stovall's proposed actions during Thursday's town hall.

Here's another quote from that meeting

"They may not be doing anything but walking their dog," he said. "But they're going to have to prove it."

"This fear is what's given us the reason to do this. Once I have stats and people saying they're scared, we can do this," he said. "It allows us to do what we're fixing to do."

Wow! Well there you have it folks..... create fear and panic and the sheep will go along with whatever we say!!!

Please pin this mods...soon may soon be in every town in America!

"To ask you for your ID, I have to have a reason," he said. "Well, I've got statistical reasons that say I've got a lot of crime right now, which gives me probable cause to ask what you're doing out. Then when I add that people are scared...then that gives us even more [reason] to ask why are you here and what are you doing in this area."

Stovall said he did not consult an attorney before announcing his plans to combat crime. He even remained undaunted when comparing his proposed tactics with martial law, explaining that "I don't know that there's ever been a difference" between his proposals and martial law“

Re: Armed task force to patrol streets "If you're out walking, we're going to stop you....."
I live in a neighborhood that has had on and off gang activity for a long while. At one point or local pd created a special "gang response unit" with the intent of lowering gang activity. The pretty much stayed in one or two areas driving around stopping who they deemed fit.

I was outside a convenient store getting soda for my family one evening and I was finishing up my cigarette before going into the store. It was a nice night out and I had a sleeveless shit on and my tattoos were showing.

Bottom line is this patrol car pulled up and I was frisked against the wall for not looking like an upstanding citizen, at least not enough for them.

I really wonder if they realize just how much they destroy their relationship with the public with actions like this. I have not trusted police in any scenario since then and feel anxiety whenever I am near them. Stop and frisk policies are wrong and only one step below martial law.

People should be outraged.

It's about time those fatass mother fuckers got some exercise. I would love to see some 250lb 5'10" cops walking around instead of sitting on their asses all day. Maybe they should start in chicago!
