Any cop who decides to write tickets to innocent people or arrest innocent people should go to jail, period.
Productivity is a legitimate way to evaluate officers work, but arrests and tickets are not in that tally for this reason alone, it causes lazy and substandard officers to decide to arrest and cite innocent people. Calls answered, accidents worked, traffic stops made (who cares if tickets are issued, only that criminals get cited or arrested), reports made, drugs seized, weapon arrests, time spent on calls, etc. are all ways to evaluate an officer. These artifical or aarbitrary "quotas" of a certain number of arrests and citiations are wrong. I have never been asked to make more arrests or write more tickets in my 22 years at FWPD. Has it ever happened at FW, maybe, but not any place I have worked and I have worked on 3 different sides of town and many different places.
You can evaluate officers based upon what their peers in the assigned area do for productivity, not arbitrary numbers.
If you like the IRS, DMV and the Post Office, you will love Obamacare!

I have to agree with a quote from former Treasury Secretary William E. Simon: "Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote."
