I was wondering why our local PD would need a Dodge Charger as a patrol car. Must be to give all the free rides to our local drunk population. Tax dollars at work?

I have been wondering the same thing herandthere. I wonder how well it performs on the washboard, ice covered,roads that we can't afford to plow regularly anymore? Do you think it can reach its maximum potential racing through the streets of old town?? I wonder who approved that acquisition???

Are you suggesting that they couldn't give those people a ride home in the tahoes or durangos? Or would it be better to just lock all the drunks up, so we the tax payers could pay to support them, or should we let them walk in the cold potentially become hypothermic putting a burdon on the health system?

I wonder if the difference in price of a tahoe and a charger had something to do with it? Wonder if the fuel efficiency is different at all?

I do not want our PD giving them a ride at all, unless it is to jail.How about they call a Taxi? Are there not laws against puplic intoxication? I would rather that our tax money be spent on locking the idiots up and possibly discouraging their irresponsible behavior, then giving them a courtesy ride provided by my tax money.

As for the Charger? Just wondering why a small town, up in the rocky mtns., would need a patrol car that is only suited for high speed pursuits. But I may be missing something.

Especially when the Staties already have one for the highway!! I can't believe there isn't more input on this!! What a waste!!

Why do we always have to have the latest in light-bar technology? Drunks weren't stopping for the old ones? Why do we need new patrol cars every three years, whatever the brand? Remember a couple of years ago, a picture in this publication, of two deputies in full-body, single-use haz-mat suits, expense unknown, to handle a dangerous pot plant?

That's a big part of why this country is financially imploding, before our very eyes. Pure government waste.

And if you go to detox, do it on a Friday night. Saturday morning's biscuits and gravy are the best in town.
