concerned re-quotes Mr. Drummond and states: "I've been out all morning working on preparing to remove graffiti vandalism from around the city"

As if he was out there all by himself? That was just another personal agenda political shore up! It isn't about right and wrong, success and accomplishment and solution, it is another LOOK AT ME ME ME ME ME.

Just another one man show leading the charge!

Ladybug...before you comment, it would help tremendously if you would READ THE COMMENTS FIRST and in your case, READ THEM TWICE, slowly and carefully line by line.

I believe this would help you to be more instrumental with your own opinions that do NOT coincide with others views and comments.

I know some active duty people that were in the area. They stopped at a few watering holes down the street from the police station, last week. Drug use was openly observed and they will no longer go back to any of those. Snorting lines in plain view of employees. Salem has it covered alright.

"What costs?" Read the article and then read what she suggested. The cost she is talking about is the cost for removing the cells and selling them for scrap. What she suggested is having those sentenced to public service for crimes they committed do the tearing out. It would save cost of tearing them out and increase the return to the city. "All the name calling and direct personnal attacks over basically nothing." Which post has name calling and personal attacks?

What comments are you reading? I think all the comments made here are supportive of the police. The only one that could even be said came close to complaining was a "recommendation" by Brenda of a possible way to keep the cost down. She was not complaining about anything just making a suggestion of a possible way to cut cost.

The new police chief was getting high fives 2 months ago. Now he spends about $3000 of tax payer money to improve a area of the police dept not being utilized and all*****breaks lose.

Give the guy a chance

The pride in one's community starts with it's citizens.

Easy to set back and complain about everything.

I find it funnie. Everyone wants better roads,more police, drug dogs,another detective,more patrolman. And yet no one says here's the extra money to do it,

These people have asked it's citizens several time for assistance in reducing the graffitti.

You have to start somewhere. Clean the mess up and try to prevent more of it.

"I've been out all morning working on preparing to remove graffiti vandalism from around the city"

There in lies part of the problem in Salem,we are always chasing the horses that have gotten out instead of fixing the fence. Wouldn't it be more productive to spend your time trying to find ways to prevent the Graffiti, than trying to find ways to keep cleaning it up. Our police force is down in manpower at a time when the criminal element in town is at an all time high. Fix the real problem and then worry about cleaning up the aftermath which has occurred by the shortage of a police presence in town.

"I respect you opinion HIGHLY and appreciate your background and expertise on this subject. "

"I think most people do."

Uh, no they don't notSocialist. Look at the disagrees. There is a lot of people in Salem that could care less about that. Salem has always been a popularity contest. It's not about what you know, it's who you suckk up to that matters.

Awww dang! I knew Nestic was good at running in here and pulling his "insult hit and runs" but I thought at least Drummond would stick around and answer a few questions! But it's always the same....when the questions start to fly, they haul booty!

Why do you have a chief of police?

Is it to run the police department or is it to have someone to micro manage?

Rick why is it everytime somebody disagrees with you that same smart remark comes from your mouth about folks need to run? If all folks whom had opinins and ideas had to run for seats on council just to be heard or taken serious as you believe then i doubt you would be sittin in that seat you hold cuz there are lots of people in town that are a lot smarter and wiser than you buddy. i think you owes some folks on here an apology for your rude arragant behavior.

Change scares folks. That's why this town has been in rut for so long. you can't convince folks that sometimes you have go backwards bafore you can go forward. I agree with some on here about this town and the changes needed, these council folks are always moaning about money but they just don't see to have any concrete substance behind their moans. I will probably regret this but i wouldn't mind paying a small tax at the end of the year to improve the PD to help rid this towns drug and crime problems. I would agree to that quicker than a tax for a downtown beauty queen project.

dds1983 states: "Blow it out your tail pipe qcity, same song and dance. Try something original."

What exactly would be YOUR original dds1993? As in running around telling people to "Blow it out your tail pipe" fall in that classification?
