Labor Union to Police Chief: Don't Actually Fight Crime

This is an incredibly stupid decision.

Labor Board:  Scranton Police Chief can't actually fight crime

This almost reads like a segment from the Daily Show.

Want to know why some folks have such low opinions of labor unions?  Read the above.

Please, someone try and defend this decision.  Fighting crime shouldn't be held hostage by some nuance in a collective bargaining agreement.

Unbelievable decision! There are no words for this one.....

I agree Mike. I intellectually understand the argument behind the decision, but public safety has to trump everything else, including the fine print of union contracts.

This makes the FOP look really, really bad.
