I wrote in this previous post how the Los Angeles politicians were trying to ruin their department with draconian financial disclosure rules. Now I turn to the east, and say out loud what so many must be thinking:
There is simply no reason left to be a New York Police Officer. I know it sounds rash, but as my post on salaries shows, the money is disgusting. Really, who would want to do that job for 25 grand? I love being a cop, and I wouldn’t consider it for a second.
Now come these two gut punches for the men and women in blue. First, a story that shows NYPD can’t recruit at all. No duh, Bloomberg…you don’t pay squat! Then, take the cops who you don’t pay a living wage, and do what?
You’re kidding, right?
Well at least they won’t have to worry about financial disclosure; they have no money to disclose. Disgusting.
