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.

Humans are going feral such as in Detroit and other high crime areas. They can take their armies there to domesticate the locals. Violence will be needed to get them under control. Public floggings should also be allowed.

The old fashion cop on a beat is a good idea. Their presents is all that is required. Once trust is established, the locals will be empowered to help the officers to rid their area of crime. Takes time.

how about this quote, not sure if anyone did it already

Should an individual not produce identification, Stovall said his officers would not back down. Individuals who do not produce identification when asked could be charged with obstructing a governmental operation, according to Stovall.

Heh this is funny,

12/16/2012

the townhall message said we will have town hall meetings on the 18th and on the 20th to discuss this further

posted today on their site...

12/17/2012

Cancellation of Town Hall Meetings

In the interest of public safety, we have elected to cancel the remaining Town Hall Meetings.

We have corresponded with numerous residents and non-residents today alone who were both supportive and against our Street Crimes Unit and Town Hall Meetings. Some of the correspondance has caused us great pause in whether or not the meetings should remain as scheduled.

As the police department, it is our duty to protect ALL residents and non-residents from harm. We feel that with the strong feelings on both sides of the Street Crimes Unit issue, a safe and productive meeting would not be the probable outcome.

I am enabling the fair use law here for relating this information lol.

I hate to say this...I fucking hate martial law tactics...

But at least they're doing something about the high crime. If you wanna stop them, form up a militia and go patrol the streets there yourselves to lower the crime rate. Hell, if I saw an actual effort I'd load up a bus pass and join ya.
