Like the soup nazi of Seinfield some cities will have to lay off police officers to make up for budget shortfalls.
Four major cities — New York, Seattle, Houston, and Pittsburgh — will get no money from a $1 billion economic stimulus program called COPS. This little bit of info was leaked today. I realize that there's not enought money to go around but would't it be smart to put the money where there's more bag for the buck? Since January I've seen a few cities that have had to cut their force. One small town out here layed off it's entire force and will have to rely on an already over stretched county force. Guess it's time to dust off and clean the shotgun because in true republican tradition "you're on your own". Need health care "you're on your own". Need help paying for education "you're on your own". Need work "you're on your own". So get busy and pull yourself up by the bootstraps unless you have a job on wall street or work for a large insurance company in which case you get a bonus.
