    So we know who to lay off first when the country goes bankrupt.

    Oh, that's now. We have far too many cops in America.

    Because someone put superglue in their chair when they got up to go to the Porta-Potty, now they can't get up. (actually I thought of doing that last year as I was leaving, should have done it!) AJ

    I don't mind a police presence so long as it does not interfere with normal activity. I would rather have them where I can see them and not hiding over a hill or around a curve.

    Compared to the 1st year, this year's police presence was almost invisible.

    I did hear a few comments about the police watching our every move. They don't bother me.

    Every time is see an Illinois police car, I think about Jake and Elwood Blues, the Blues Brothers.

    Don't you know,this is Illinois, people with guns have to be watched. People with guns are a dangerous threat to our Homeland security. You should have been here the first year,more troopers than shooters. The biggest joke of the century. Lets have a big shoot here??? CED

    Those of you who think they have too many law enforcement officers please send them to southeast Tennessee to help us get a handle on the growing gang problem. We will take all we can get as long as they are honest.

    Police presence usually isn't bothersome to people abiding by the law. What are you guys doing that makes you nervous?

    Buz-- We've got concealed Weapons! That makes the Cops nervous. Why does IL. refer to our guns as weapons? CED

    The police are here because it is a state park facility and they are required to provide police for on site security, traffic, enforcement, etc. I never worry about seeing the police, it makes me feel safer.

    Is that a joke?

    Maybe they heard that there is a lot of "discord and discontent" in the ATA.

    In Vandalia, it was common to have more than a dozen guns stolen every year. The first year in Sparta the SP caught two right away - predictably from Dayton planning to continue a career. Since then, I have not heard of a single intentional instance.

    I talked to two CD cops who work late, occasionally shoot the sporting clays course, and go home to sleep. I have found all of them polite, helpful, and very interesting to talk to. I'm glad they are here.
