A Good Way to Reduce Police

In this day where people keep saying we should reduce the number of police on the streets, there is actually a good way, or actually three ways to do this. Moreover, I think you will find that most law enforcement officers will agree with me.

First, stop abusing drugs. If people stopped abusing drugs, crime in the country would plummet by at least 50%. This is not just a personal opinion. I have discussed it with many officers and an assistant district attorney. If you doubt me, do some of your own soliciting.

People who are on drugs commit crimes. Desperate people trying to buy drugs commit crimes. People selling drugs commit crimes. Then, of course, there are those who smuggle drugs. Do I really need to tell you that they commit crimes?

If people stop using or buying illegal drugs, the crime related to them would go away. It would decrease the need for police, for doctors, for lawyers and courts. It sounds like a good idea to me. Oddly, the democrats put little effort into decreasing drugs abuse. They seem to like them coming across the borders and they love to have them in the hands of our youth. Maybe they don’t want to admit it, but look what they do. Look what they are in favor of. They like to push the agenda of Black Lives Matter. The truth is, to them, no life matters. It is all about the power and they don’t care who dies. With the drugs being sold on the street, they gain power.

The second way that will decrease the need for police is family abuse. It is sort of tied into the drug abuse thing. People high on drugs, especially alcohol are far more likely to abuse wives and children than sober people.

I do not know what the percentage of police calls are related to family abuse, but it is common knowledge that family abuse calls are some of the most dangerous an officer will ever see.

The third is a simple word, respect. This means respect for our nation, our laws, other people and yes, especially for those that are paid to enforce the law. From time to time, I might have argued with a traffic officer, but I always respect them. Not only do they deserve our respect but if we don’t respect them, then we will fail as a nation.

Perhaps that is what the democrats hope for. After all, it is all about power. If the current system fails, then they stand in a position to take over and assume the power. AND I ASSURE THEY WILL ABUSE THAT POWER.

Another Free Series

March 7, 2020, you will be able to order free the 3 books from Amazon that make up the Mitch Series.  To order them, simply go to my author’s page at :

http://www.amazon.com/author/story_teller

and select those you want.  If, by the way, you should find any others you like, feel free to order them.  There are over 35 to choose from and not one of them a rehash of the other.  You will especially find this series diverse.

The first of the series, “Mitch” is about a private detective who has gone through a traumatic experience and, from time to time has difficulty coping with his past.  The story opens when he is about to violate his third rule, which he made in this effort to cope.

In the second of the series, a friend convinces Mitch to re-enter the world of law enforcement to head up a special task force.  In his efforts, he discovers a particularly sinister plot.  He made the discovery literally based on a thread.

The third one… well, let’s let you find out about that one on your own.  After the finish the first two books, you will certainly want to read the third.  It will likely surprise you.  Maybe not.  You just might figure it out on your own.  Then again, a few readers never figured it out.  For those who don’t figure it out, I enclosed a small explanation at the end of the book.

One more note:  I discovered that some browsers do not work with the above URL.  There are two that I have tried that failed.  I have no idea why.  If it doesn’t work for you, simply log onto Amazon.com and do a author search on Ben Rhodes.  I have done this a number of times and found it effective.  Also you can search on the titles, “Mitch”, “Frequent Flyers” and “Emergency Husband.”  These searches work, but you will likely find more clutter.  Also, if you perform the author search, you will be more likely to find another story or two of mine that will interest you.

Remember, if you are using a Kindle, you can sample all books before ordering them.  Also, you can order a sample of most books free.  In addition, for those that like to listen to books, all my books have text-to-audio enabled.  You might find this nice should you have a long commute to work.  Before I retired, I had an hour commute to work and the drive was made a little more pleasant by listening while I drove.  In a few cases, I sat in my car a few minutes after my arrival, just to keep from interrupting a certain passage.

For those interested, none of my books contain profanity or adult situations.  These books should be fine for anyone in 9th grade or above.  Though there is some violence spoken of, most is indirect and far less than most kids see on TV these days.  I would suspect most 7th or even 6th graders see far more violence on TV regularly.
