Well, so am I, Chris Choinski. But I don't stoop to ridicule and insults. And if you ever should want to be a "public" servant and get hired as such, I suggest that you express your opinions without resorting to name calling, ridiculing, and insulting the taxpayers who pay the salaries of public servants. It's not a good business practice.

And with all due respect to you, Chris, your argument regarding staffing may have been legitimate. But why sully it with insults and ridicule? How can that foster any serious discussion?

i still dont see where i insulted you, but whatever. And why dont you come out from hiding and use your name? And with that, im done with this thread, its killed too many brain cells.

Yes, this is to replace an officer who is retiring, as were the previous hirings you initially spoke up. Berlin has had the same number of sworn officers for years now, and when it does approve an increase in the personnel, it is to accommodate for an increase in traffic, population, business, crime etc. etc.
