the benefits of having (90 % of cops ) are far outweighed by the detriments. If you want to stop thieving, you shoot theives when they are caught. End of having to deal with THAT thief (and quite a few who know of him, too). What cops do is make you NOT shoot the thief, meaning more work for them later, and you should be "grateful" for wasting your money on them, along with still having a pos thief to worry about. Same for rapists, assaulters, etc. Why can't we just shoot them when they are caught in the act? Why CARE that such pos's got shot?
