Q: 

USA-Police,-could I have a breakdown of the various forces and their duties/responsibilities?

A:  At the top, there are the federal police powers which include the FBI and the US Marshals. The FBI investigate federal crimes and are more of an investigative branch. The US Marshals are federal police and their job is to enforce federal law anywhere in the United States. After that are the state powers. At the top of that group would be the State Police. They only have jurisdiction in their individual state, and can enforce state law anywhere in that state. The Highway Patrol is just a branch of the State Police. After that are the local powers, such as city police, local sheriffs, county police, etc. They fill in their local areas. Each one has the same powers of arrest as the State Police, but they know the area better, and so are more...

Q: 

If I don't feel the police is there to protect me and I'm in fear of them, why should I support them?

A:  I''m with you all the way! Cops are a useless waste of tax payer money. First they do nothing to protect that is a false belief. Look at it like this: Millions of people do and always will break the law every day yet the cops maybe at best stop 1,000,000 of a percent of these crimes. Think of how many times you have sped if you have gotten two tickets then they missed you thousands of times and you are only one of the millions that do it every day. Even after they have failed to protect you they fail to solve millions of crimes after the fact also. Would you honestly want a program in your company with this amount of production? Some of the bs about it would be like the wild west is pure dime store novel and TV/movie versions of what the west was like. Read an...

Q: 

What's the point of having a war on drugs?

A:  i agree it is stupid AS FAR AS I''M CONCERNED THERE IS NO POINT BECAUSE IT HAS PROVEN TO BE A LOSING BATTLE IN TERMS OF WAR ITS THE LONGEST AND ONE WE PROBABLY WILL NEVER WIN. IF SOMEONE KNOWS THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE ILLEGAL DRUG THEY ARE TAKING AND APPARENTLY FEEL THAT THE HIGH OUT WAYS THE DISASTER IT WILL BRING TO THEIR LIVES AND HEALTH THAN FOR GOODNESS SAKES LET THEM MAKE THAT CHOICE AND ARREST THEM WHEN THEY PUT OTHER PEOPLE IN DANGER JUST LIKE WE DO WITH DRUNK DRIVER some people dont make right choices, but im sure they regret it. people who sell them need money. and people who bye them are making a big mistake. there the ones who are doing that to themselves. the law enforcement cant choose how to run thier life. but i still think...

Q: 

Is the term "performance standards" just a suger coated way of saying quota?

A:  Yes the police departments do have quotas! You say that it is common knowledge that they do not? All you have to do it look around at the #s of police you see on the streets and pulling people over at certain times of the month. Normal payday days, mid month, and most definitely at the end of the month. The police are a tool to make money for their city and state. 2 points BAMMMMMMM Performance standards aren''t just tickets written. They are also the number of calls the officer responds to, the number of reports he generates, the number of people arrested, charges that are filed, even citizen contacts count as performance standards. What a supervisor looks at is that the officer is doing something throughout his shift. Whether it''s writing tickets or reports. There are too many people...

Q: 

What is the typical process for a foreclosure in FL?

A:  IF you still have the original loan that you used to buy the condo.... and you used the condo as your primary residence, the lender will not come after you. If you put a 2nd loan or refinanced the condo, the law is more strict. They can come after you for any money they lost. You are correct, the short sale is a waste of time. See if the bank will let you sign the deed to them today. Why wait. / Save your home and do what my brother did, Modify your loan he did it with the american modification agency. saved him from loosing it, and brought his interest rate down 4 points! not to mention forgived his missed payments by putting them to the back of his modified loan. email DShevlin@YourAMA.com or call dave at...

Q: 

Why do people blindly do what the Police say?

A:  Because the government has spent decades and much money to convince it''s youth that they are at the mercy of government. It is the same reason people WANT government programs rather than have the private sector fulfill the need. Funny how no one notices that the private sector fulfills MOST of their needs and desires, and does it cheaper and better than the government could ever hope to. Because it''s the law. And you''re the one who needs to be educated. To avoid hassles like getting thrown on the ground, arrested or shot. people feel that if there are in police uniform they feel they need to comply with there requests but i toatly agree i have seen police break there own rules because they think there above the law when there not People...

Q: 

Removing warrants from the NCIC?

A:  Workers at the court generally have no direct ability to enter/remove/modify warrants from the NCIC (or state systems, either). They send notification to local law enforcement about the warrant, and the law enforcement agency enters/removes/modifies the information in the system. The exact means of notification varies by locality. As for who at the court has the right/ability to notify law enforcement of the warrant, that depends entirely on the local rules. Some courts have dedicated warrants personnel, while others authorize any and every clerk to do so. Clerk of the Court, systems operator....

Q: 

Two children living the same room

A:  Is it possible to put the boy in the bedroom by himself and the baby in a travel crib/pack and play in your bedroom closet with the door open while he is visiting? He may want to have company, but a small child and a new baby in the same room even in a family that all lives together can be tough. I didnt put my kids together in a room until the baby was atleast 9 months old--if the baby is up at night it wakes up the older child and they can get very cranky...most new babies are in the same room as the parents for between 6-9 months in a bassinet anyway...I am not sure what the legal right is related to your state and privacy for a toddler, but it does seem to be a reasonable request so he can sleep. best of luck....

Q: 

During the G20 protest march in London, and the way the Police acted against the Protesters,?

A:  The police were under orders from the labour hierarchy, watch the white wash flow during any "independant enquiry " I would like to say yes but i know the answer would be no we the British are giving our country and our belifes to all the ethnics cos ...we "may affend" some one !!! i can see a cival war starting if things are not done to stop this soon... i am rambling now but this is a subject that really gets me worked up I think the police act according to the situation at the time not according to the rights or wrongs of the protesters. We see thousands of peaceful protests in London every year we also have events such as football matches and Concerts etc and they are all policed well. The violence at the G20 was premeditated by a handful of...

Q: 

Can the cops enter and search my house to make an arrest?

A:  For a $10 pair of earrings?. Not likely. For everyone saying give him up- You need to realize that this is the cops job to find him. Not someones job to rat him out. Your friend should go to court before his court date because that looks like he is just running away. They can get a search warrant but they''re certainly NOT going to get one for someone with a warrant for 10 dollar earrings in fact I doubt they would be "looking" for this person. Clearly there''s way way more to the story than what you''re telling us. Whatever this person''s relationship is with your son means nothing if they''re just avoiding jail. They''re going to need to take responsibility for their actions and you''re just making things worse. YES they can get a search warrant, and can break down the door if...
