Wednesday Morning Comin’ Down

Downtown

A funny thing happened on the way to law enforcement utopia in the city of St. Louis.

Sure, the city voters approved the sales tax increase on a Tuesday.  But then, Wednesday, and therefore, a return to reality:

Dotson says St. Louis losing more officers than it recruits

The City of St. Louis swore in 18 new officers Thursday night. This comes at a time when Police Chief Sam Dotson said the department is in desperate need of more officers.

Dotson said the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department is losing about three officers every two weeks and he contributes a lot of this to the fact that they can’t offer a competitive salary.

Dotson said the starting salary for a city officer is $8,000 less than county officers and, with the passage of Proposition P, a tax to specifically fund county officers, that gap will only widen.

Bummer, St. Louis County voters also approved a similar tax on the same day, and this is screwing up the city’s grand plan.

To combat the problem, Dotson said he and mayor-elect Lyda Krewson met with the civic progress committee and big business owners to come up with a campaign to start paying city officers more.

Which means yet another PR/campaign push for another tax.

According to data from the FBI, in 2015 St. Louis ranked 7th among all cities when it came to most officers per capita Dotson said that number does not take into account socioeconomic factors, it is just a simple population number and law enforcement is more complicated than that statistic.

This skullduggery is a little more difficult to translate, but it’s still well within my pay grade.

The easiest way to translate it is that, no matter the pay scale for cops, if the job is that dangerous, i.e. involves that many black civilians, then recruiting is going to be a little bit of problem. George Strait told you all about that: You can lead a horse to love, but you can’t make him fall.

Look at me, TWO country song references in one post! As I fist bump myself.

To put it another way, if you’re white, and want to be a cop, you’re going to avoid St. Louis City. Remember, you’re Darren Wilson, and there are tens of thousands of Michael Browns runnin’ around.

The more complicated way to think about it involves the complication of the unproblem of the lack of diversity on the SLPD, an unproblem which incoming Mayor Lyda Krewson has pledged to solve. But, as our very own Puggg told me right after the Fergaza Strip festivities begged the politics, and I’ve repeated it several times since he did, since any department will gladly hire qualified blacks for the sake of affirmative action, this means they have their choice of departments, and they want the jobs that every wannabe cop wants — High paying and low danger, safe rich non-NAM suburbs. Any other combination on the pay-danger matrix is by definition less desirable. SLPD pays okay, not great, but it’s also a risky job. Lyda and Co. are starting to realize that all that new sales tax money they’ve got burning a hole in the SLPD budget won’t result in an increased officer corps, much less a blacker one.

I expect over the next several years for the SLPD officer corps to continue to shrink, and the hard numbers to prove this will be covered up as well as possible. We’ll see carefully crafted images and videos of Academy graduates to give us the impression otherwise. On the other side of the coin, if the black violent crime spike does not naturally self-abate over the next few years, and by “naturally self-abate,” I mean the dindus lose their post-Fergaza exuberance and therefore ease back on murdering each other, then we’ll start hearing the sing song excuses that we need even more cops, so we need another tax.

Truthfully, I think the real reason for the sales tax passed this month and any more that they might hit us up for in the near future, purportedly for law enforcement, is to cover for public employee pensions, cop and otherwise.

Truth-hammer

I have created an algebraic/logic formula regards this situation of white cops risking their lives wrangling dangerous niggers for low pay: YT LEO + TNB < $ = X (AND/OR AA LEO), whereby YT LEO= white law-enforcement officers, TNB= typical nigger behavior, <$= less than pay, and X= dead white cops and/or affirmative action cops. Please submit this for peer review.

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
