Toledo mayor: Get a gun, you’re on your own

Toledo Mayor tells residents police can’t protect them

When word of significant cuts to the Toledo police force first came out, one senior police officer issued the following recommendation to city residents:

“Buy guns. Invest in precious metals: lead, gun power and brass.”

And now, Mayor Carty Finkbeiner is admitting the reason why this is such good advice:

“Violent crimes, shootings, are not ever prevented by the presence of a police officer, no matter how many thousands of police officers you have.”

Saturday, May 2 marked the first full day since 75 Toledo police officers turned in their badges and guns, and according to the Toledo Blade, word of the significant cuts in the Toledo police force is on the street.

“There ain’t a side of Toledo you can go where they do not know the police is going to be laid off,” one resident is quoted as saying.</em>
