Re: The Police - once again

By the way I think that to make a police officers enforce a law is to impose a fine and give te officer a 10% commission. So he will get something out of it. A nice incentive.<BR> <BR> Also as far as police technology goes. Are we up to date on technology such as DNA or fingerprints.
