Wisconsin police officers quitting in droves

We are losing law enforcement officers at an unsustainable rate. Officers have left or are leaving the profession in significant numbers. Milwaukee police say they experienced a spike in retirements over the summer and early fall.

Madison’s acting Chief of Police Vic Wahl recently said that Madison has faced a bigger than average number of departures. He attributed these retirements, in part, to “the negative media narrative about policing and a vocal activist community that is anti-police.” …

It seems intuitive that a smaller police presence leads to increased crime, since criminals will believe their likelihood of getting caught decreases. And that’s what the data reflect.

One study found that an increased police presence reduces robbery, larceny, auto theft, and perhaps even murder. Another study discovered that a greater police presence reduces violent crime and property crime.

    After reading a blog post filled with repetitive, copy/pasted manically and increasingly hysterical off-topic comments by a newbie who apparently doesn’t know how to pay attention, stay on-topic, or do adulting, I logged off and collapsed into my wife’s arms with sobs wracking my body for a good 30 minutes, the silence of our living room punctuated by my wails and moans of sadness after another traumatic encounter with online idiocy.

        Maybe, but there probably were more than a few who rolled eyes and stifled snickers. Which probably caused THEM to ramp it up to even wilder levels on the ol’ Wack-o-Meter.

        “just imagine the trauma inflicted on his students.”

        Just like bimbette Mt. Horeb social worker Samantha Hamer was outed to her employer for beating State Senator Tim Carpenter, Sgt. Schultz’s employer should be informed how unhinged he is.

        Heck, he might snap and injure young students; this certifiable Lefty NEEDS to be doxxed…it’s for THE CHILDREN!

    Looks like the mayors will have to hire more social workers to take the place of the cops.

    Shouldn’t be much of a problem, though, lots of smart people said so last summer. Must be true!
