  1. I haven’t seen foot patrols since Andy of Mayberry. They even stopped using the horses because they were too expensive. You might seem them in the Commons giving directions to tourists. I have seen guys I believe are undercover. They exit a police car and then go to a hot spot. But for mobility they use cars. The number of police in most large metro areas is declining. Not a choice occupation anymore. Let’s face it, one wrong split second decision and you’re looking at prison. No margin for error. If you where a police uniform people judge you as most likely a racist, even if you’re an African-American. So…. Who wants the job? Even when you’re, your wrong.
