Today I observed three sheriff police cars and 5 police officers watching one stop sign at the fork of Lefthand canyon and James canyon. My neighborhood has had 2 robberies in a two year period. I requested more of a police presence but was told that the county
doesn’t have the personal to be patrolling my rural neighborhood.
Apparently they do have the personal to catch some poor biker who failed to come to a complete stop and put his foot down, a misdemeanor
versus a potential robbery, a felony. This is all because a few lazy
drivers can’t expend the energy to move their foot from the gas to the brake or the patience to wait for an opportune time to pass a few outlaw bikers. Their are plenty of jerks on both sides of the argument but where are our priorities when so much of the counties energies are expended watching stop sign offenders. I would venture to say that if the police watched any stop sign in the county they could pull over
violators. Why, just because some whining car drivers are too lazy or
impatient to slow down does the county have to expend so much man
power? I want those three cars and five officers in my neighborhood
protecting me not spending the day sitting a waiting for the next stop sign violator. My tax dollars are being wasted with these misplaced priorities.
