Crime is Down -> Fewer Cops

The St. Louis Police Department - still without a real web site - is proposing cutting 40 to 50 officers through attrition in the next fiscal year.

Hey, after all, crime is down! And, crimes are never covered up! We can handle a reduction in force, right?

And yet, somehow the Police budget still would increase by several million dollars, mostly due to higher salaries and health insurance costs.

Funny though - it seems like there's more and more random gunfire in my neighborhood lately.

See what the Gendarme are saying about it. (I think this is the current link - maybe).
