On Friday, a local newspaper published with the headline "No Stimulus for Cops," and it was about how puzzled local leaders are that they didn't get any federal money for police.
What in the hell does that mean? We should be "stimulating" the police industry? We already have a massive (and massively expensive) program installed to "stimulate" the police industry.
It's called the drug war. It keeps crime high in cities so that citizens demand police.
Spending money on more police will not "stimulate" anything,
