I dont necessarily disagree with you. In many ways what you say makes sense. I was thinking of consolidating police(like business does all the time)
to save on costs, but on the otherhand it can lead to tyranny sometimes.
not to mention you're still gonna have the same number, if not more, officers, and then you have facilities, and cars, trucks, helicopters, weapons,
equipment, stationary, etc....
the only thin that would change is instead of having several layers of local and state law enforcement, now they all wear the same uniform, and fly
the same banner..it doesn't reduce costs at all, and only serves to consolidate power, and remove options..
ANY time you centralize power, you end up with problems..i mean, it sounds like a great idea on paper, and it could work, if only we could find a way
to do away with corruption, and abuse of power....
but yes, this topic is not the topic of the thread...if you'd like to start a thread about this subject, i'd gladly participate
