The Examiner reports that the citizens should be educated on the police tax. How do we get educated? Do you think fear monger Tim Watkins is going to educate us? He says you are for the police or for the criminals. He says the good people of Independence deserve more police?

I guess since I am against it, I am not one of the good people. Do you think the city will tell you that the increase in tax on your house will support the police, but most of the increase in any TIF area will go to the pocket of the developer? Do you think the chief of police will tell you that the officers making money off duty use city police vehicles without full reimbursement to the city? Maybe fear monger Watkins should get a bunch of his friends and volunteer so the rest of us slugs don’t have to pay more money.

I intend to vote against the tax since becoming educated has made me believe the tax is not necessary.
