        he would have to suspend the constitution, declare martial law, curfew and be like Rodrigo Duterte and carry out extra judicial killings, that is the only way . They did that in my country in the 1964 -85

        he's the leader, sorry, supposed to be the leader. He needs to order police dept to do their jobs from the top down. if the director, captains, luetenants, captains can't properly train their officers to do their job and protect the public, fire them immediately. To protect and serve applies to the high tax paying residents, not politics or to protect and serve crappy employees. There is 0 police organization in Paterson. Patrols? what's that? My area hasn't had patrols in years. So of course criminals flooding the once almost crime free area to turn it into the next 4th ward.
