City Attorney Tells San Bernardino Residents To ‘Lock Their Doors, ’ ‘Load Their Guns ’ Because Of Police Downsizing

 
Susan Drollinger (a NCO in the LCS Auxiliary) sent me this link to an article about the San Bernadino, CA City Attorney telling residents to "lock their doors" and "load their guns" at a city council meeting in response to dramatic shortages of police officers. In character, the economic crisis in San Bernadino leading to the staff shortages are no different than what is going on in Springfield or for that matter, the budgetary stresses in all cities and counties across the US at this moment. The problem this official addresses is real.
We offer a better solution.

LCSA Unit Patch

 
Updated 17 October:
We received the brushed-metal name plates this afternoon. They are currently in the care of the Quartermaster. We ended up getting a good deal on the nametags at roughly $6 ea. with the custom logo. We (the Voughts) paid for them out of pocket and would not mind getting the money back, at the very least to put into future orders.
