Instead of calling them PINK SLIPS, they need to call them from now on BLUE SLIPS. Hope the door doesn’t hit them on the way out the door. All elections carry consequences. Results are indicative of the choices people make at the polls. Maybe if this is repeated often enough, people will learn at least within the next 4 years.
Every time a city gets short of revenue they threaten to cut cops and firefighters. It’s because they do so many other things that can be cut. It’s blackmail.
It’s not their salaries that are the problem, it’s the retirement.
BTW the city of LA is bankrupt they just won’t admit it. There cops on patrol ratio is much higher than most other major cities. Bratten got people out of the office and on patrol reducing response time, but still one of the lowest number of officers per capita and LA is geographically a very big city.
