Police salaries and pensions are the highest in the country. Your tax money is paying for them. The police union is corrupt and one sided. Most police retire with $100,000. to $200,000. thousand dollars a year for the rest of there life with benefits even if they live to 100. Many are offered a second county job with another pension. If they screw up on there job they don't get fired they get a paid vacation, because there corrupt union backs them. We must fix this and save the tax payers millions.

There is something wrong with the way schools are being managed where they require 6 times the average tax income on L.I.....
