But he won't pay for body cams. He won't line item his budget and he can't really justify the 57% increase for an 11% increase in calls. He is the most powerful elected official in the county and he enjoys more republican support than democrat even though he's a registered a democrat.

They have a 4.4 million dollar plane. They have two helos, airboats, patrol boats, speed boats, swamp buggies, jacked up trucks and mobile home command units. They have a Mercedes armored personnel transport and now, even though there's just no money for the drug farm, which was a rigorous grueling 12 month camp based on the 12 steps and no money for body cams, he wants drones, universal surveillance with Links to all private surveillance and facial recognition tech. It's crazy how much gets spent. That's not even all of if. He also has a private slush fund that is structured as a nonprofit 501c3. Corporate donors and wealthy individuals donate to it to curry political clout. http://www.pbcsf.org/index.html

If you spend more on education, you will spend less on police. It's really a simple equation.

A new day is coming.
Local police having military equipment, to use upon US citizens will be illegal.

Me three - I absolutely disagree with the trend of the last 15 years or so to militarize the local police forces.

However i absolutely agree with more intensive screening to weed out the aggro types, and much more training on deescalation and restrained use of lethal force.
Pumping a dozen rounds into someone to "neutralize the threat" should not be the standard when lethal force is required.

I'm surprised the trump campaign hasn't talked about bullet proof bibles.
