  2. Thanks for your service! Maybe those complaining can voice their complaints in more relevant formats — put together petitions, gather signatures, show up at City Council meetings. Oh, wait, that actually takes work and requires getting out of the armchair quarterback position…

  3. GOOD. The situation with incredibly inflated pensions & turning a blind eye to unnecessary overtime in order to reach those levels is really coming to a head. It’s simply not sustainable. Public agencies should have this on their radar, but have proven that we cannot expect those who benefit from these loopholes to also police those loopholes for abuse. More oversight is needed, badly and quick.

  4. Pretty crazy that the public apparently needs to police the public servants selected to protect and police the public in order to prevent abuse of the system… Regardless of the systemic shortfalls, yes, thank you for your service, officer.
