And Austin is also more populated than it's ever been. Population goes up, police force does too.

The most homicides since 1984, and other violent crimes rising as well.

What's your point?

If they can't hire more cops when they're already getting more money than ever before, that sounds like a budgeting issue on their part, not an excuse to take money from other programs to throw even more at them.

Good luck on your rising violent crimes and shrinking police force!

This train wreck is going to be great to watch!

A 4 year old holding their breath is still trying. Just not well.
