People complaining about new police officers not getting paid enough, is comical. First off, they take the job and they know exactly how much they are going to be paid per the contract. Secondly, they can't pay them any more because the officers retiring are getting paid $100,000 in sick time they never used before they retired. That would pay two new officers easily, but this has municipalities handcuffed, because they had a sweetheart contract for the last 25 years, and they must pay it to them. The bottom line is your taxes would double if they paid them more.
