That may be true in many places but in Austin the PD is here to fine, jail and anything else that might earn the city some revenue. It is definitely not about protecting or serving anyone.

I am sure there are some decent Austin cops as I do not know all of them, but the ones who have to peddle a bike downtown are trying to prove something to their superiors so they can get a car one day I guess. They are not thrilled to be riding a bike on the beat I guess. LOL
