Stop Underfunding Police

February 14, 2018

Phoenix Law Enforcement Association president Ken Crane had an editorial recently recommending more police officers for the City of Phoenix. As a libertarian I usually oppose increased government spending, but public safety is a proper function of government and Ken is right in calling for more spending on police. The City of Phoenix has budget challenges, but it simply needs to reexamine its priorities. The money for more police can easily be taken from the hundreds of millions of dollars that Phoenix is wasting on light rail, an outmoded form of transportation that will be obsolete in a few years when self driving cars take over the transportation for those without automobiles.

Let’s make our citizens safe and mobile at the same time. Take some funds from light rail and hire more police.
