    Is the SLPD union labor? I bet so.

    Non-union police forces rarely layoff employees.

    Yep. Just read the article. City offered fire and police unions a deal that would cut their pay and benefits a bit, but save their jobs. Unions refused.

    In a non-union world, the slackest of those officers would have been fired years ago. New recruits would replace them (read, lower salaried new recruits) and the budget wouldn't be strained as much.

    Union labor destroys an economy. OSHA and Labor Laws have made the need for unions extinct.

    This is not the first time this has happened. This is East St. Louis in communist Illinois which is across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, Missouri. That hell hole lost their entire city hall, police & fire department in a lawsuit before.

    The state of Illinois is crashing like a wingless plane.

    I suppose Obama took all his hope and change with him when he left, because when Obama was in Illinois the streets were paved in gold and children plucked chocolate gumdrops and cash from the trees.

    They love to pluck cash from others trees. Try driving through the Illinois with out of state tags. Money will get plucked from your tree.

    Oh I see this is the union's fault?

    Not a failure of the BANKSTERS monetary policies, and not a failure of the government which encourages millions of jobs to go offshore.

    No the whole problem is unions.

    Jesus! ~ you guys are damned fools.

    Is there no other layers of bureaucracy that could be cleaned up first before laying off these individuals?
