    Howard wants people to "fear" the police

    Perhaps respect is a more noble aim than fear. Respect obviously has to be earned and is a two way thing. From DeHaviland: Howard promises "fear" of police

    Claiming he would "put the fear back into the hearts of the yobs", he said: "It's time to give the yobs a dose of the fear they've been dishing out to the rest of us. "I use that word deliberately - fear. I want to make them fear the police."

    Howard is 100% correct.

    Yobs do not know the meaning of the word respect, otherwise they wouldn't behave in the way they do.

    Some might suggest a more effective course of action. Criminologists James Q. Wilson and George Kelling (another link to balance that out is here)would suggest that there is a better, easier, cheaper, potentially non-violent way to reduce crime without having cops going around brutalising anyone who steps out of line.

    I never suggested that cops should brutalise anyone, I think that "fear" doesn't translate into brutality but the fear of getting caught and facing the legal consequences. I was agreeing with the article that Howard made good points.
    The broken window strategy you linked to is a great starting point, in fact someone suggested Giuliani might do well to go run the UK Bobbies for a while in, say, London! Mr Voice didn't like that.
    Your second link is, I think, incomplete.

    Indeed, some criminals do not know the meaning of the word respect anonymous, as I said, respect however has to be earned, and is a two way thing.

    Guiliani was not the guy behind either the Broken Window idea or it its implementation. He was, however, the guy ultimately behind a lot of the NYPD brutality for which he was rightly criticised.

    The second link didn't take, so here goes. It's an important one, I think.

    Link.

    Speaking of Guiliani, I hope the anonymous who admires the man is still around to read of him demanding a $100,000 pay check for speakingat at a tsunami fundraiser.
