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.

How to recognize
How would you answer these questions? Here is how one witness answered — under oath:
U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney: “Do you believe the violence on January 6 was justified morally?”
Former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn: “Take the Fifth.”
Cheney: “Do you believe the violence on January 6 was justified legally?”
Cheney: “Do you believe in the peaceful transition of power in the United States of America?”
Flynn: “The Fifth.”
On social media, RITO Mike Schwandt commented, “Flynn isn’t giving that dog and pony show anything. He’s a smart man.”
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Mr. Schwandt should have taken the Fifth!
We went back and watched Trump’s speech on January 6.
