Columbia Police Poll?

Columbia, S.C. residents are being polled about their views on local law enforcement, sources familiar with a recent survey tell FITS.

A company operating under the name “Conquest Research” (ostensibly based out of Virginia) reportedly polled Columbia residents this week on the upcoming November 2013 mayor’s race. But the firm’s questions also addressed the current status of law enforcement (or lack thereof) in South Carolina’s capital city.

“A lot of the questions had misleading or limited answers such as: Do you feel more protected by the City of Columbia Police or the Richland County Sheriff’s department?” said one individual who was called by pollsters.

Wait … you mean there was no option for choosing the local “thug life” judges?

Honestly we don’t really care who commissioned this poll. It doesn’t matter. We are witnessing the first stages of what we predict will eventually be remembered as the second coming of William Tecumseh Sherman.

Hide the women and children. Bury the silver. Etc.

Unrelated, but was anyone else accosted by the petition zombies last weekend that were canvasing Columbia to get support to put “strong mayor” to a vote.

Jay, your post has been sitting here alone for 2 hours. This polling joke is also lonely, because I rarely get to share it.

An American, a Russian, an Egyptian, and an Israeli were
walking down the street when a man came up to them and said, “Excuse me, I’m with the Gallup Organization and we’re conducting a public-opinion poll about the meat shortage—“

The Russian said, “What’s meat?”

The American said, “What’s a shortage?”

The Egyptian said, “What’s public opinion?”

And the Israeli said, “What’s excuse me?”

The lady I was approached by was a waddley little 55 year old creepy ass cracker. She was annoyed with my two responses. I wish Jody Barr had been there to capture the magic.

a. Under the current administration I don’t know who in their right mind would want a strong mayor system.

b. There’s no way in hell I would even want it put to a vote knowing what I know about the Richland County election commish.

She was deflated.

“Conquest Research”, hired by a PD? Is that some kind of sick joke?

Why not “Stop “resisting” and we might stop beating you Research”?

or how about “Paid leave until the internal investigation clears me Research?”

Do they really have to rub their conquest in our faces? Why not “I just peed on you because I’m the Alpha Male with a badge you bitch Research”?
