My local newspaper is running an ad decrying the possibility of budget cuts (fair enough) by pointing out that an across the board budget cut at the state level could impact well over 1000 police officers. OK, I differ with the politics, but fair enough.
Now guess who's running it.
No, not the Fraternal order of Police. The Teamsters--you know, the guys whose Mob ties have led to dozens of FBI and DOJ investigations in the past 40 years. Certainly police officers, of all people, would understand why a law officer would not do well to affiliate with the Teamsters, right?
Oh, snap. Snap. This would explain some things, I dare say, starting with why they never found Hoffa.
