I am totally appalled by the amount of money,fireman, policeman and certain City Officials are taking as "Entitlements" from Washington State.
Accountants and Budget Specialist for the state are screaming "We are broke". Our classrooms are getting larger, activities are being cut, resources for mental health issues/help go by the sidelines as $37,476 is given out to one individual for overtime. Not a years worth of overtime but 3 month, approximately, 198 hours at $189.00 an hour!
And now the retirement benefits which is just another slap in taxpayers face. Whoever has the responsibility of monitoring such expenditures not only fell down on the job, they fell out of everyday reality and should not be allowed back to that position.
Aren't there laws that allow the government to take from an individual in order to benefit many?

Decision on rape case retrial due in Aug.

I think if it were your: son, brother, relative, or friend

who had spent 17 years of their life in prison you wouldn't

have the pettiness to criticize anyone’s hair!

Or it the point that far above your heads?
