I couldn't agree with you more. Every time I visit it saddens me to see my hometown in this condition. I'm sure am grateful I don't live there today. But with that said, I wouldn't trade my childhood in Anderson for nothing. Back in the day it was a wonderful place to grow up.

No one should lose their job & especially people who do so much for the city & the people who live here. Look elsewhere for cuts. If it is that important to cut pay then maybe the Mayors office should take a cut. I am sure that won't happen though.

This is a SHAME, how do these idiot politicians justify their stupidity? How and why do people buy it?

I find your questions somewhat humorous considering what YOU have just been through. People buy it due to ignorance. I'm not using the word 'ignorance' as a negative. It's just simply 'lack of knowledge. Most of us, the sheep civilian society, don't know nor understand the financial aspect of law enforcement. Most of us don't really want to accept the realities of our society & why we need so many LEOs. We listen to those in power (such as politicians, administrators, or even some cases...

We listen to those in power (such as politicians, administrators, or even some cases idiot police chief & lieutenant). Most of us would prefer to hold hands & skip merrily along & never have to know the dangers in our society that LEOs deal with daily. It's scary to know listen to a police radio & hear what's really going on in our neighborhoods so we put on our blindfolds & go about our day & avoid thinking about it.
