Newark Mayor Cory Booker began firing 15 percent of his police department today, illustrating the actions that cities in the second-wealthiest U.S. state are being forced to take to confront lower aid and tax revenue.
You want cops to protect your home, firefighters to put it out if it catches fire, and FEMA to rebuild it if it floods, right? Who the fuck do you think is gonna pay for it?
Heh ... that idiot Curtis Sliwa and his Guardian Angels took to Newark streets 2 nights ago to supposedly help protect the neighborhoods thanks to the police layoffs and one of them got mugged. Might wanna raise taxes and rehire those cops before the rest of your tax base moves out to safer climes.
