Cops to Boost Patrols Following Kansas Shooting

Nassau County Police to increase presence at religious services this week.

After a man with reported anti-Semitic ties opened fire outside a Jewish community center in Kansas, Nassau County Police will up their presence in the wake of Passover services.

County Executive Ed Mangano announced that patrols, which were already increased ahead of the holiday, will be further intensified.

Officials said there were no reported threats as of Monday at Nassau County religious establishments for Passover and Easter.

Mangano said the patrols would be boosted in response to a shooting that took place this weekend in Overland Park, Kan. Officials said the shooting was committed by a "founder and former leader of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and the White Patriot Party," according to CNN. A woman at a Jewish assisted living facility and a young boy and his grandfather were tragically killed in the shooting.

Stop with stupid marijuana arrests. Alcohol kills 88,000 every year, 11,00 of them mowed down by drunk drivers. Tobacco killed 40,000. Marijuana killed ZERO. That's right ZERO. What the hell do they waste money arresting pot users who cause no social problems like alcohol does. Armed robberies, murders, wife beating, child abuse are all fueled by alcohol.

Good Point "Lear Jet". How do you feel about the NYPD stopping the snooping of Muslims? I have mixed feelings. I definitely think they can foil terror plots by snooping, but it does kind of infringe on their privacy. It's a catch 22.

@Learjet- I appreciate your resistance to be "pigeonholed" and especially your comment above about wasteful enforcing of pot laws with limited resources. Not to be picky, but you might want to clarify your above post- looks like maybe a typo. "National security and terrorism intelligence is something that should very loosely restricted." I think I know what you mean to say, but others might not. Thanks for your often "think out of the box." comments.
