Why do they need such extreme measures for just forty families? Isn' t this a bit excessive?

However it is good there is foot patrol, perhaps they should adopt the sheme in the UK where there are community representatives that are given limited powers to become a community police officer, this way it might ease the burden on the police force and should make people feel safer...

Also why the curfew? Crime must be realllly bad there

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.

Now that POTUS has brought back so many troops from overseas, he has to find a way to employ them all. What better way to do that than to have a bunch of shell shocked, PTSD afflicted, disenfranchised troops patrolling their homeland ?

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!!!

So, did you send this butt hook a copy of the Bill of Rights? It doesn't sound too bad if they stay in the high crime areas, but they will expand into your nieghborhood. Then it's too late.

Maybe this will help:

"On Friday, however, Gaskill retreated from the severity of the plan he and Stovall offered to citizens at the town hall.

'The only people who are really going to be impacted by this are mostly the unknowns,' Gaskill said.

The mayor said the street crimes unit would not be positioned to cause problems for law-abiding residents.

'We just want to make a presence out there for the criminal element,' Gaskill said. 'And we want to make a presence for the people who are concerned and give them a sense of security.'

Gaskill added he was not concerned about potential profiling by the police department. Even though Stovall had said police would enter neighborhoods with the highest crime rates, Gaskill said officers would respond to where they received calls.

'It would be based on where people have called us and said things are going on in our neighborhood,' he said.

This part would be even better.

As for having IDs, he said citizens wouldn't have to worry about that, either. He said the police would not arrest residents solely for failing to produce identification when asked.

Attorney Curtis Hitt of the law firm of Hitt and Kidd said officers were allowed to engage in "consensual questioning" with citizens, though if any circumstances arose that led to an arrest, a judge would have to look at the "totality" of those circumstances.
