Eagle County law enforcement has strange priorities

Amanda Reid
Eagle, CO, Colorado

I’m just wondering if you could answer a question for me. Do bad economic times constitute a militant police force? I was pulled over and got a silly seatbelt ticket.

I had traffic court, and when I went in to the courthouse, there were so many people that we were all called by the DA instead of going before a judge!

There are people on the streets egging people’s cars and stealing things from people’s cars.

Shouldn’t the police force be patrolling the streets to keep us safe? I and many others I have talked to feel that having the community policed to a point of being militant doesn’t make us feel safe. It makes us feel fear.

We are working-class people who can’t afford to help with the county’s budget. What they need to do is have a bake sale!
