Buckeye considers cutting back on police, firefighters

• Arizona Republic
Facing a nearly $5 million budget deficit, Buckeye is proposing laying off police and firefighters and cutting wages.

Town management rolled out the cost-cutting plan this week to keep Buckeye in line with lower revenue projections over the next several years. The town hopes to implement all measures in January.

 Shall we dare hope that the Department of Homeland Scrunity, the Federal Bureau of Idiots and the like will soon follow suit and start axing their over-paid, fat and incompent morons?

This is the first time I have seen a municipality in Arizona finally realize the inevitable: When a majority of your expenditures comes from police and fire, you must cut police and fire to keep within budget when the loot dries up. 

It is nice and tragic to see these gutless chest thumpers finally be forced to cut the local gendarmes.  

But I question the obvious choice to keep the cops in preference to the firemen.  But I guess you need the protection when the mob comes for you.
