Police Response Times In Rural Areas

Rural dirt road

One of the main issues facing people who live in rural areas is response times for emergency responders.Roads use to be divided into routes, and box numbers. An example would be Route 9 box 1319. The Post Office knew where Route 9 was at, but the police and fire department usually did not. Because of this, a nation wide initiative was put into effect to change from route numbers to road numbers. This way route 9 was turned into an address on a road.

Sounds simple, right? Mail box routes were abolished, and all of the houses were given a physical number. This made mapping easy, and was supposed to make finding rural homes easier.

Changing from mail box routes to road numbers has made thing easier, a lot easier. Now anyone can pull up a map and find a certain road number on the map.

Austin cop gets a call about people with guns

Come and take It Texas, Austin division is doing their monthly walk, when someone calls the cops to report people with guns. the caller said the people with the guns were being nice. Which is a thumbs up to the caller.

From the video, the citizens are in Subway ordering food when the cop shows up. Cop talks to the citizens, cop talks to Subway employees, everything goes better than expected.

Believe it or not, in Texas citizens have the right to carry a long arm in public. But here lately certain police departments have been trying to make political statements but harassing people who are exercising their rights. One such incident was in Beaumont Texas were a man was arrested for carrying an AR-15.

If the people do not use their rights, those rights are slowly taken away. With gun hating liberals trying to take our gun rights away we need more people to take a stand.

At 9 minutes into the video there is a discussion about the Texas Department of Public Safety is trying to use policy to override stay law. It will to be interesting to see how this works out in the courts if Texas DPS arrest people for exercising their rights.

Disparity of Justice

survivalistAnyone notice how the U.S. justice system discriminates depending on your social status?

Send a threatening letter to the president of the U.S. and the secret service pays you a visit.

Send a threatening letter to an everyday citizen, and nobody gives a crap.

Once a crime crosses a state line, the local police do not have the resources, nor is it worth their time to do anything.

If only the police went to those same measures for everyday citizens. A few years ago someone stole a boatmotor off my boat, the police barely made a report on the theft. I guess if you are a bank for company you get special treatment.
