Re: “Oakland Council Prez Wants June Cops Measure

It's pretty simple really. Cut police, cut the perception of safety. Watch home buyers and business people look elsewhere to put their tax dollars. Watch tax revenues fall. Repeat. Unfortunately, the police are as important a part of the infrastructure of a city as are the roads. All of these things are expensive. It's like doing the basic maintenance on the building in which your business is housed. Yeah, it's tempting to spend that money on something else, but if you don't, your bottom line will suffer. And, in a city's case, that bottom line includes things like schools, libraries, parks, after-school programs, etc.
