    How in the name of all that's Holy does an idiot like this get elected. I think it's a pretty safe bet that anyone who want's to be mayor of that town won't have much problem winning at the next election.

    Her next move would be to ban all officers from leaving the police building. That way they would not be shot.

    Holy cow. This lady is more ignorant than what the article gives her credit for. Here is a longer video of the interview.

    If she's worried about costs for the city, why are there two very sharp looking police cars in the video? One looks like an undercover sportster. I'm sure I could find ALOT of areas to save that city cash that don't threaten the safety of the citizens.

    Well, the edict-from-above specifies "no chases."

    Those cruisers are gonna be auctioned off, 'cause we can't be havin' the good people threatened by the PoPo chasin' criminals, and that includes traffic "crimes" as well. Ain't that right, Ms. Mayor? Ms. Mayor??

    Maybe they'll need a new check-in booth, though. You know, for all the walk-in traffic they's gonna git from criminals turnin' themselves in, on account o' the po-lice not be chasin' them no mo'. Bless you. Bless you. Bless you, for not twistin' my words!

    Some things are simply too stupid for words.

    The good news is that there's a two-fer special at Dandy Dan's Surgery, this week: Lobotomies, two for $395.

    I think we just saw how this past November.

    Does anybody know what form of government Wellford uses? Is she a strong mayor, is there a city council?

    This city seems like one not too far from here in AR. Here is a snip from the latest news story on Garland. So far the treasurer, mayor and police chief have all been fired and charged with crimes.

    Garland City, Ark.: 3 missing police cars found at dealership
    By: Jim Williamson - Texarkana Gazette - Published: 09/23/2009

    Three missing Garland City, Ark., patrol cars have been located at a Natchitoches, La., Ford dealership after the dealership’s owner became frustrated with keeping the cars for nearly 2 1/2 years and called state police.

    Calvin Braxton Sr., president of Natchitoches Ford, has kept the patrol cars, which have grass growing around them, since then-Garland City Police Chief Talben Pope Jr. attempted to trade the cars for a Lincoln Navigator.
    Gotta love small town USA, seems they have the same attitudes as the folks in Washington.

    *** update *** policy rescinded

    Wellford Mayor Sallie Peake Rescinds No Chase Policy
    Wellford Mayor Sallie Peake Rescinds No Chase Policy | WSPA

    “I’m like Joe Wilson,“ says Peake. “He was forced to apologize. I’m changing (the policy) not because I want to, but because I’ve been asked to.“
    Peake said she has asked the city’s attorney to draft a new policy that will rescind the current order and allow officers to once again pursue suspects on foot.

    “They can run, jump, climb trees, tumble, wreck cars, whatever they want to do,“ said Peake.

    But she’s not apologizing for anything she said last Friday in her fiery interview with WSPA which has been shown on CNN and many other affiliates around the country.

    “I meant what I said, and I say what I mean, and I stand by it!“ said Peake.
    "My God David, We're a Civilized society."

    "Sure, As long as the machines are workin' and you can call 911. But you take those things away, you throw people in the dark, and you scare the crap out of them; no more rules...You'll see how primitive they can get."

    I can't hardly understand the words that come out of her mouth. Coherent sentences would be a start. She's a good example of someone desperately needing to think a bit more, prior to speaking.

    The silly twit still doesn't understand the rationale behind forcing her to rescind the thing. She simply cannot fathom the impact the policy guideline would have on citizen safety, severity of crime, officer safety, and officer ability to uphold the law (as pointed out by the city attorney).
