I never would have guessed

Reports of shootings and stabbings just blocks from where Washington DC “Public Safety Officials” chose to deploy firefighters in an effort to deter crime?

You mean it’s not working? Who would have guessed?  I’ll need a minute to compose myself.  Discuss amongst yourselves, I’ll give you a topic:

“Police and Fire are never expected to cover expenses, why is EMS?”

Ah, I’m better now, thanks.

 

The cartoon Statter911 links to says it all.

 

It’s not working DC, pull those fire and EMS crews off the street corners and let the police deal with law enforcement.

You’ve been watching too many movies. Before trying anything else sit down for a minute and really think it through.  It seems cardboard cutouts of police cars and fake cameras would have a bigger impact, and be safer.  Don’t forget that your firefighters and paramedics are “public” too and fall into your “Public Safety” arena.

 

Good grief.

  1. It’s like parking a patrol car in the corner of two hospital corridors and saying: ‘here, your presence will prevent some disease.’  Makes no sense.

  2. Well, there is a bright side to this.
    When DCFD actually catch some nefarious thug in the midst of preying upon the citizenry they can beat the ever lovin’ bejeesus out of him and not worry about any claims of police brutality.

    I’m sure they can find something amusing to do with a mugger, a master stream, and a back board.
