Ha, I almost thought we would be there.  And as I paged through, I wondered--is it the big over time scandal of the very officer caught with his pants down? or the just the whole department over time scandal?  That sucked a lot of money from us. 

It was always shocking that they let a man hire his son. As if they didn't know what would happen.  Now, hmmm, tiny town lets a married couple be on the same force?  Just hard to believe, how that even happened in the first place.  What -they are going to work different shifts? In a town of 15 thousand?  Once you let it happened, it can't suddenly be changed.  Sigh, sad because there are some good police people on our force now.

Gone are the lovely Daff-o-dils

but there's no need to fear.

Small town greed and corruption

could never happen here.

We have an excellent chief now and some good police officers. Unfortunately, until the rotten apple long time history is cleaned up these problems will occur. But gosh, the union is giving unions the world over a bad name.

Between the police department and the school system (paying for people who are suspended or terminated), it's amazing Beacon isn't bankrupt!
