Anyone remember what crime levels were like back in the 1970s in most of the big cities in the country?

Here we go again, only the Dems are bringing those crime rates out of the cities and taking them state wide.

What everyone has posted is correct.

However, you might do some searches for AI upscaling and see what that gets you. It is similar to the idea of hiring a painter, but with a computer doing the work.

So when they get rid of police, and it doesn't work, and things get worse, will they just pass more laws and make more stuff illegal?

Even without cops, prosecutors can still go after normal people.
The end goal is not to get rid of the police. The end goal is to replace the current police with a new force that is loyal to them. Probably one that is federally controlled.

You guys seem confused.  Who exactly do you think the police exist to protect?  Hint: It's not you.

You are exactly as safe after this law passed as before.

Installing a frost free unit flat generally isn't a problem...

As long as there's nothing holding a column of water in the valve body itself, such as an attached hose or an anti backflow valve.

Enough water will leak out of the valve body that it won't be a problem if any remaining water in it freezes. But if it is FULL of water... that's a problem.

Yep, forgetting to take the hose off is what killed mine.  ;/  I did take the hose off but after it was too late.  I bet that's pretty common.

I think some places mandate backflow preventers on faucets, and they cut off the setscrew so you can't take them out.  Put one of those on a frostfree faucet and you are doomed.  (pro tip: drill out the setscrew with a lefthanded drill bit)

I have freeze proof Iowa brand hydrants that have survived minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit. I rebuilt one that was acting up but you can pull and rebuild from the top without excavating the whole thing. IIRC the rebuild kit was about $19.

Some people should not make YouTube videos.

Case in point.

Not so much. He does alright.
