OK, I will say that I would definitely have preferred that all serving LEOs & first responders were given exemption from this round of cuts. I have some friends in both lines of work, and I have a very good idea of how stressful the work they do is.
There is a huge amount of waste in public services both in the US and here in the UK. Most of it, here, is at the top tiers of the agencies. A lot of it is unionised, a lot of it is, even after a year or so of more rational government, an outcome of political correctness, and a lot of it is just local government fat-cat self aggrandisement.
It's the usual story. The grunts doing the really useful work get fucked over and the fat cats feather their nests, at everyone's expense.20010911

Here's the deal. Talking with the rank and file at my prison, we've discussed that we're willing to take zero raise for the next 4 years and even an increase in what we pay for medical. We don't mind that. But talking about taking something back, how about the legislators give something of their back? Or cut some of these political appointee jobs? Or cut a few administrators? We have 5 administrators at our jail: An Administrator, her assistant, and 3 facility superintendents. All make over $100K a year. Does each facility need a superintendent? Complete with secretary? And I'm not sure this is unique to my jail. But you don't hear that. You hear of cutting our stuff.The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.

The NJ Teachers Union should have had the same stance as you guys. They wouldn't even yield 1.5pc medical contributions.
That's exactly the sort of shit that gets NJ unions a bad name. And you know what, mostly it's the unions, not the rank and file members of the unions, who are to blame.20010911

I have had it up to here with listening to all the civil servants in this state bitch about having to go without a raise for a year or might have to pay a little into their health beni's. I wouldnt paint everyone with a broad brush but it seems like every CO I know of or heard of is milking the systems so I am sure its not a few people here and there.

Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid
To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.
