  • I’m usually a supporter of the police, but the details get under my skin.  There is nothing in law that says details must be used, but there are negotiated contracts.  Most of the time they are overkill, but I don’t blame the police for playing by the rules and raking in the doe.

    The sad thing is that even civilian flaggers get paid prevailing wage….which is not all that much lower than what the police make.  There was a report when this conversation first started that Dimassi (before he was indicted) had some kind of financial interest in a company that employed civilian flaggers, but I have not been able to confirm that.  Sounds about right for this state though.

    But to answer your question, I have not seen one civilian flagger since the whole debate started a year ago.

  • Just yesterday morning I was driving down 195w and i witnessed a state trooper standing and watching the construction workers while sipping on a large from Dunkin’. You could almost see the thought bubble floating above his head~~~~Poor bastards only making $27/hr…Heh Heh….I’m getting $45/hr just to stand here, watch ’em bust their asses and drink coffee…Cha-Ching!

    that slacker cop working the detail is probably gonna rake in $150K this year and he got the job because his brother-in-law is a state rep in liberalville, Massachusetts.  That detail counts toward his pension and if you take the detail away from him he will f*ck you up.  

    I hate to say it but I stopped seeing cops and fireman as heroes long ago.  They are now just more of the lazy flotsam that flow down the socialism river.
