  1. I’d like to know what Chief Walters is doing to address violent gang crime in Santa Ana. This is a bit more important than a Police Foundation dog and pony show? In fact, I’d like to know what the Chief is doing that even qualifies him to be a Chief in Santa Ana other than years on the job. There’s certainly no leadership. His time has come and gone.

    1. WishyWashy,

      The problem is that the city is broke and cannot hire more cops. And to make matters worse, the gangs are using underage kids to traffic drugs, as they cannot go to prison.

      Drugs make these people so much money that they are willing to kill to protect their turf.

      Ultimately we need to decriminalize drugs and tax them and thereby end the drug war. Until that day arrives, all of this will just get worse.

      The only idea I have in the interim is for the SAPD to use security guards to observe and report, and perhaps to deter. You can hire three or four of them for the cost of one cop.
