Clinton proposes 100,000 new police officers on streets

She promotes a $4-billion-a-year anti-crime package while visiting a rough Philadelphia neighborhood with mayor. In Indiana, Obama attacks big corporate salaries.

WASHINGTON -- New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, campaigning for president in a neighborhood of Philadelphia so rough the mayor said, "Osama bin Laden wouldn't last here," pitched a $4-billion-a-year anti-crime package today that would put 100,000 new police officers on the streets and help stem the tide of repeat offenders back into the country's prisons.

Claiming that her husband's administration "reduced crime to historic lows" in the 1990s, Clinton argued that "we have to get back to doing what we know works."

"I'm old-fashioned about that," she told a group at a YMCA gymnasium. "I think you should actually look for solutions to problems -- find out what works and execute. Enough with the talking, enough with the speeches, enough with the rhetoric."

Clinton said her program would include $1 billion for states that want to participate in anti-recidivism efforts through education, job training and drug rehabilitation. She also urged the end of the five-year term for crack users, who are disproportionately black, because the law punishes them more harshly than powder cocaine users, who are predominantly white.

"President Bush could have built on the successes of the 1990s," she said, but instead he "slowly but surely chipped away at all of the building blocks."

Mayor Michael Nutter, who has pledged to reduce crime in Philadelphia, where there were 392 homicides last year, introduced Clinton by saying many of his constituents were more worried "about al Gangster than al Qaeda."

They are socialist thugs and nothing more.

I remember when they promised 100,000, too bad the money was for only a couple years. That left many officers who had been hired to look for jobs later.

More of the same....

It was grant BS. Many of these grants pay for a position starting at 100 % then taper their way down to a big fat 0. The original agency has to take up the rest. It's fine if that agency plans on hiring someone or adding that position to begin with. If they aren't then what is gained?

The big feel good thing right now is domestic violence. You can apply for a grant to hire all kinds of specialized people for that and get all kinds of neat stuff, never mind the fact that there is nobody on the street to take the actual calls for service.

Don't get me wrong, grants are a good thing but a politician using them a means to back up a hollow campaign promise is more political crap. People seem to forget that they are operating on the Federal level. Therefore everything they do starts at the top and must work its way down.

It's easy to say that you will throw cash at a problem when it's not your money that's being spent.

Old lady Clinton reported $109 Million in income last year. Do you think she gives a .... what anything costs us out here?


Remember, nothing is free. The Government is nothing more than a credit card company with guns and indictment powers.

100,000 police to enforce socialist policies and thought crime, not to fight urban-thug crime.


On the Yo!Bama! side, Lets keep giving corporations reasons for leaving or selling to overseas. And lets also take reasons for people to want to achieve. Totally stupid idea. I'll tell you about my CEO. The man is not different than you or I except for the fact that he doesnt let anything distract him from achieving his goals. His mindset and discipline made him the megabucks and if a law like this gets in his way, he will just jet off to whereever he wants and run a business from there. Most CEOs are very "international" Mine can speak everything from French to isiZulu. If he leaves because his income becomes federally capped here, then I have to go find another job. He is here because of the opportunity of the USA, and he is taking full advantage of that opportunity. Why shouldnt he? We certaintly are not. But he is making MORE opportunity for me and many others.

Crispy Cream stock has soared!

With the prospect of a 100K new officers on the street CEO’s at the Cream have announced that 10K new shops will be built to service these salivating peace officers! Street informants warn that crooks are infiltrating Crispy Cream offices as spy’s in order to learn the locations of the new stores. Once located, they can plan criminal acts knowing that the likelihood of being caught will be less in areas where Crispy Cream shops are found.

Law enforcement denies vehemently that officers are becoming plump from devouring Crispy Cream doughnuts. Officials explain the rotund appearance of the officers is due to additional protective gear such as bullet proof belly belts recommended by the DHS.

Moreover, due to unfair comments regarding doughnut stuffing LEO’s, some Agencies are experimenting with the AMG (automated mouth guard) designed by area 51. The device, which resembles a football helmet, uses sophisticated sensors that upon detection of ingredients comprising doughnuts immediately deploy a lid which completely obstructs the mouth thus preventing the consumption of the doughnut.

Some prototypes of the device have been used and shown effective but the major drawback has been officers resigning. Examination of the resignation papers by officials indicates most complain the AMG has caused them to work more, eat less and therefore is cruel and unusual punishment. If this trend continues police officials may be forced to stock Crispy Cream doughnuts in there precincts to satisfy officer’s habits while still utilizing the AMG on patrol to fool the public.

Well, last time I heard, Hillary was/is a sittting member of Congress. That being said, why doesn't she introduce a bill to try to accomplish her "crime goals"? I guess it's easier to come up with a plan as a candidate than an elected member of Crongress. Either way she is you know what-ing in the wind, as is normal for her.

Agree with everyone posting on this.
I know I'm not voting for her, all of the other alternatives have many ??'s about them too. Hardly worth choosing this time.

If I had a nickel for every broken promise... well, you know. Campaign promises in particular are always delivered during speeches as the cardinal rule of crooked business is never ever put it in writing.

"Hardly worth choosing this time."

Oh yes it is, just think what would happen if everyone voted for NOTA.
