Police Unions

Someone accused me recently of hating unions.  I don't hate unions.  I hate it when unions disregard everything other than the most narrow needs of their members and disregard everything else.  Police unions often forget they are police and act only like unions.

Police want to serve and protect their communities.  No one becomes a cop to become rich.  Still, police unions time after time endorse candidates that are soft on crime and even anti-police because they are big government politicians.

As such they want more government spending, more laws and regulations, more government solutions to problems.  The unions only care about the spending and their political power.  They only want to insure their raises and their pension are ever growing.  Even in times of economic downturn, even when the middle class are struggling.  That's not in keeping with the values of most cops; that's what the SGT Says.
