The logic is pretty simple. You get rid of your corrupt law enforcement/politics, and find decent officers who actually do good works. As far as me talking about Memphis in particular, it really just refers to my previous post - comparing Memphis to where I am now, which really just ties in with the statement above. You need good enforcement for ANY law. But bad enforcement can make any law bad. Memphis vs Here compares how it can work and how it can be a complete joke. Registering your dog with the city or state you reside in should be mandatory, in my opinion. You are made to put your name on everything else you own, pets - who can cause damage, run away, and so on - shouldn't be an exception. You can say "that is what microchips/tags are for", but only the best of us microchip/tag. Everyone else doesn't, because they don't want the responsibility. Making them register their dogs, it makes them take responsibility. It's just a simple matter of finding a balance between keeping the idiots in check, and allowing the better citizens to go about with their lives....and that is with ANY law, really. I never said I agree with it completely. Obviously plenty of cities and states have screwed it up plenty of times. And CLEARLY some lawmakers got a little carried away on limits, fees, and so on. But when it is done right from the beginning, and enforced correctly to the end, it CAN work. At least on a small scale.
