Letters to the editor on city budget, Bob Weeks, racial profiling, abortion, ‘Fruitvale Station’

For 2014, city of Wichita staff has proposed delaying the start of the 2014 police recruit class by three months and eliminating six firefighter positions (the equivalent of cutting two positions for each of the three fire operations shifts). The staff has said that such reductions would not affect public safety. But this means that fewer police patrol officers would be on the streets for three months. We need all the patrol officers to reduce crime and to ticket all the speeders and the red-light runners in Wichita.
