How many police officers are on the police force now? Rutherford is selling a pig in blanket that stinks. Notice the red light camera's going up everywhere? Now they tell you got increase your taxes to make you safer or else. The implied or else is that they will let crime go even further. Do as we say or we just sit back and let the criminals have their way till your willing to pay us. Sounds like Mafia except police can break many laws that common people cannot. Texting and driving causing accidents, killing people at their homes without search warrants and getting the wrong address, killing police officer dogs with no charges, tinted windows for their safety that exceed state laws. Running around with automatic weapons in unmarked cars then having the weapons stolen and not recovered. Anyone who thinks they keep you safe had better see how long it takes them to respond to a violent crime report.

I will NOT VOTE to reelect any of the members in office who approve this garbage! Time to CLEAN HOUSE all around.

So the Jax politicians spent all kinds of money on the Jaguars and now they need to increase taxes to pay for police services??? Maybe the leaders of Duval County need an explanation of the differences between a "need" and a "want".
