Watching the news last night about a thief committing suicide in a car I got to wondering why there were more than 30 police officers there standing around doing nothing.  Well, they were collecting overtime.  It looked to me that half the officers were in army fatigues as if there were a war ready to start.  Even though the guy was dead, dead, dead.

This happens all the time.  It would be interesting to see what the overtime bill is for incidents like this.  When I was Mayor there were officers who were making well over $100K a year because they were so good at milking the system.

Hmmmmm 30 cops at the scene where a bad guy fled and then killed himself with a gun, seems about right given that there were at least 26 cops at the scene of a quiet unattended death of a certain lawyer a cpl years ago..... I mean an armed bad guy fleeing is comparable to a suspicious death in a home isn't it .....?
