  •  Because they do an essential job... (0+ / 0-)

    ..that requires well-trained professionals.

    You'd rather have some dumb-ass punk working minnimum wage?

    I, for one, welcome our new hillbilly overlords.

    •  Yes, yes (0+ / 0-)

      I do such a job as well and don't get these kinds of perks.

      The question a town needs to ask is "how cheap can I get qualified police protection for?". If it's cheaper to not pay for pensions and outsource to a local sheriff's association for example they would be fools not to do it.

      •  Well, they do that in some podunk towns. (0+ / 0-)

        The private sector jobs all suck in those towns too, so I guess you got a race to the bottom going on.

        But, no big city in its right mind would turn its police force over to rent a cops.

        I, for one, welcome our new hillbilly overlords.
