We continue to vote on ways to make our law enforcement and first responders less prepared to do their job. Shame on the committee for listening to the sqeaky wheels of liberalism and not looking at the big picture. The training and scenerios of Urban Shield prepares our first responders for all types of disasters. God forbid one of these scenerios comes to happen. These same people will then wonder why we didn’t know how to,respond. The people of the Bay Area continue to disappoint

Alameda county is rapidly descending into another Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco type sleeze community. Take away the Guards who guard the Sheep, then the Sheep get eaten.
