John Flanagan: Let's look at this issue realistically. Super Bowl security is important because of the potential of mass murder resulting from a terrorist attack. Should the NFL pay most of the security expense? Yes. As for rape crimes and lack of resources, no police dept ever has enough officers, lab workers, investigators, crime scene forensic techs, and to make matters worse.....courts are slow, warrants are sometimes delayed, defense lawyers obstruct the investigations, and so on. Most city detectives have a case load if a couple hundred or more open investigations, pending cases, new ones each day. Then you have the politics of police dept priorities, the pain in the ass media pushing their own agenda, and the result is much dysfunction. The media is often a driver in these matters, stressing cases like bullying, alleged hate crimes, political investigations, and such things as more urgent, and moving them to the top of the line.
