    Pony Express is the answer. Think of the added jobs. Remember the campaign speel: “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs”. Just think of the number of jobs created in order to go around town and clean up the Pony “poo.” Advantage Louisville – you don’t even need a public school system who teaches people to read and write — just need to be able to smell.

    The VIPER unit is a place for “aggressive” officers to get away with their crap. There is even a hand gesture used by other LMPD members when they are mentioned. The statistics generated by COMStat are such a joke it is called LiarStat and the Liars Club internally. Many reports are changed before submission by commanding officers to juice their stats.
