Crime (Uh, I Mean, ‘Public Service’) Pays

One reason why state and local governments all over the U.S. are bankrupt is that there are bureaucrats like this “city manager” in a small town of 38,000 in Califorinia who makes $800,000/year plus benefits. The police chief in this town of Bell, California, makes almost half a million a year (the per capita personal income there  is $24,800).  To fund this and other extravagances, the per capita debt of the city government of Bell has more than tripled in the past six years.

Gee, I wonder if this kind of thievery goes on anywhere else?
