Sys­tem im­prove­ment

The Western Star - - NEWS | OPIN­ION -

THE me­dia, lawyers and a “sym­pa­thetic” pub­lic have got­ten to­gether to take over the work of the po­lice.

There has been a bar­rage of crit­i­cism from these groups every time the po­lice are com­plained about.

Maybe we don’t need the po­lice to deal with crim­i­nals.

In­stead, they could be bet­ter em­ployed in rev­enue rais­ing, eg, speed­ing fines and other sim­ple law break­ers. But a bet­ter sys­tem needs to be found for penalty re­cov­er­ies.

State and na­tional debt has in­creased to bil­lions of dol­lars, and steadily climb­ing: credit card and bank debt is freely given out, often with lit­tle hope of pay­ment.

Maybe Don­ald Trump might have some sug­ges­tions as he is im­prov­ing the United States’ wealth de­spite his crit­ics rub­bish­ing him all the time. — Jay Nauss, Glen Aplin
