At the risk of boring everyone with repetition -- the decision to
NOT enforce parking violations REDUCES the number of
police available to deal with serious crime.
The reason is that enforcing parking violations is profitable
for the city -- the more they enforce parking violations, the
more money the city will have to hire police to enforce more
SO, anyone who wants to have more police to enforce serious
crime should demand that they get the quick cash from issuing
parking tickets in our neighborhood in the evening hours.
