There is no end to the lunacy that can come from a government functionary when he has newfound money and a desire to keep the folks “safe.” Take Palm Beach Sheriff Ric Bradshaw who now has $1 million burning a hole in his pocket, thanks to the Florida Legislature. The money will be used for a new violence prevention unit ostensibly to prevent shootings like the ones in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo. Bradshaw said plans are to use specially trained deputies, mental health professionals and caseworkers to respond to calls made to a 24-hour citizen hotline with a knock on the door and a referral to services, if needed. The goal won’t be to arrest troubled people but to get them help before there’s violence, Bradshaw said. As a side benefit, law enforcement will have needed information to keep a close eye on things. “We want people to call us if the guy down the street says he hates the government, hates the mayor and he’s gonna shoot him,” Bradshaw said. “What does it hurt to have somebody knock on a door and ask, ‘Hey, is everything OK?’” More
