- Panic at Headquarters
McCarthy now has us looking up Monthly arrest stats for all police officers from 2010 and 2011 and comparing those stats with 2012.
Commanders will be given the names of all officers with lower arrests. Commanders will put ALL officers with significantly lower stats into the Personal Concern program. Then they will counsel all officers who HAVE NOT INCREASED their arrests.
It looks like if you were always a dog, you're in the clear, but those who've dropped down their arrests will be punished.
The real reason is that 2012 arrests are the lowest in the past 15 years and that's only because the records are poor going back further. It is completely possible that 2012 will have the lowest arrest totals in the last 30 years.
If we're going to start with arrest statistics, we should probably start at the top ranks and work our way down, just to set an example. We're going to insist on arrests in which only the officers in Box #1 or Box #2 are counted, and the arrest cannot be "holding the offender." Anything else goes in this instance of counting.
Anyone want to speculate on the totals for any one of our exempt members? How about Captains/XO's? Remember, these are our leaders, the ones we should be emulating and aspiring to be. Low arrest totals would seem to be the norm for these ranks, so anyone without decent numbers can just point to them as inspiration.
If McDumbDumb is endorsing an arrest quota, let's see it on paper. Now please. And a General Order that we can point to when the inevitable federal lawsuit results.
And another point of order - McMoron has been saying for a year now that crime is down across the board with the notable exception of homicides (and shootings he is finally admitting). Here's a quick mathematical equation for McNumberChallenged:
- Less crime = Less arrests
Right? How can we have more arrests for non-existent crime? Or is McCivilRightsChampion advocating a wholesale violation of local, county, state and federal law? Because we're definitely going to have to see paper on that one before we even start the car tonight.
UPDATE: Oh yeah, we missed this obvious one:
- Less police = Less arrests
