I'd refuse to patrol as well.

What are they gonna do against a bad guy without at least a pistol.....pull their pecker out and yell "STOP OR I'LL SHOOT"!! :)

Too damn funny......cops without guns. That'll put the fear of God in them and straighten up things in short time.

There are plenty of ways for unarmed police to apply law and order. They shouldn't need firearms for most situations. The problem is they are so poorly paid, poorly prepared and poorly equipped to begin with and they don't have anything like health insurance or unemployment compensation, so they aren't highly motivated to start with. The mayor even said the only reason he hadn't fired the elements who didn't pass the control and confidence testing was because the city supposedly lacks the funds to pay their severance pay, even if they are fired for cause, such as not being trustworthy or not meeting the minimum criteria for the job.
