    Watching live PD , is this agency really as clueless as they seem?
    Watching an armed robbery response unfold and it's painfully inept.

    From what little I have seen of it, Live PD is a painfully stupid show, with a fragmented, ADD sort of format, and studio "experts" who appear to be clueless a lot of the time.

    SPD used to be a relatively decent agency. The new recruiting and all the Politically Correct crap now has frightened management and the political ruling class. Salinas is an illegal alien haven and it gets worse every year. The growers that employ the illegals, the leftist activists and the simple fact that it's basically on the Central Coast of California is reason enough that they have become something a lot less than they used to be. I think a lot of the L.E. agencies, especially in California, have declined due to what I've mentioned above. No one wants to be sued or heaven forbid, be called a Racist....

    What I saw was a lot of indecision and allowing urban outdoorsman to walk right through their perimeter Was not an example of sound police work.

    Yes, I don't usually watch Live PD but, I've had quite a bit of interaction with SPD.

    Hope you were armed! Salinas is a free fire zone especially in the east Alisal area...

    This was the bank robbery, correct? They handled that horribly.

    In a large response like that, you're not going to observe everything that the officers observed and communicated among themselves. I'm guessing they had some indications the suspects might still be on scene.

    If I watched a show like that I'd last about 2 mins before getting a splitting head ache.

    I grew up in Salinas. It was a sh!thole since the 70's and gone down hill from then.

    Salinas is short officers big time. They are running about half of what they need. Their authorized staffing isn't close to what they need and they aren't even hitting that.

    It's got all the problems of a big city with farmhands being idle a lot of the year. Like my hometown of Stockton.

    Were you a cop during the cleveland elementry school [I had to look it up couldn’t remember the name] shooting in 1989?

    Wasn’t this the first k-12 school mass shooting? Here we are 29 years later and sadly it keeps getting worse. I couldn’t believe that news story or the Lubys TX diner shooting, or the McDonalds Massacre. Now it seems like you watch the news and it hardly makes you pause. unbelievable!

    It's not going to end until politicians grow a pair and fix our mental health system, unfortunately. Deinstituionalization was a mistake.

    I was in my senior year of high school when that happened. I was out of that dump two years later.

    I will admit Stockton is nice because you can get in the Bay Area within two hours and the Sierras within two hours.
