    While I understand the concept, I question how we can afford $1M when we can't afford to keep real criminals in jail...

    Oh, so now if someone voices their opinion, which is guaranteed under the First Amendment, a police officer is going to knock on their door? Wow...this administration is really pushing the limits...I hope others recognize this situation for what it is...A disgrace and further denial of Constitutional Rights.

    What was actually said.
    “We want people to call us if the guy down the street says he hates the government, hates the mayor and he’s gonna shoot him,” Bradshaw said. “What does it hurt to have somebody knock on a door and ask, ‘Hey, is everything OK?’ ”

    A great point from the article: Bradshaw acknowledged the risk that anyone in a messy divorce or in a dispute with a neighbor could abuse the hotline. But, he said, "He’s confident that his trained professionals will know how to sort out fact from fiction."

    Perhaps these editors need to read Quotations for Dummies, or learn not to morph a statement with a title?
