This is what I've been emphasizing for some time now. With the added technology, we can afford to cut our local police forces by at least 20%. I feel bad about those who will be let go, but I don't worry too much because we've got an excellent safety net for the poor in this country. Until we develop a more viable and sustainable private police force, we'll have to deal with the socialistic dimension of public policing. Feels a little bit like Hungary, doesn't it? Way too much state intervention.

Once again, huh? To "Mittens" (or Mr. Slippers): so are you comparing the present-day Pleasanton with the Cold-war Hungary behind the Iron Curtain with no modern technology? Or are you attempting to equate 2012 Pleasanton's technology, that utilized by the city, technology developed by independent, small start-ups, (the very backbone and fabric on which this great *capitalist* nation of ours was founded), with a Hungary under the Communist Party of Hungary or the Hungarian Socialist Democratic Party? Whoa, seems as if someone might need/want a short history refresher.
