138 firefighters, how many are on disability for years and years, going around town golfing partying etc? The Vindy never wants to look into that! We need less fire fighters and more cops in Ytown! Or here is a great idea they did in Minnesota have some cops patrol and if a major fire breaks out they pull the fire uniform out of the trunk of the police car and they make more money for doin double duty. Not to mention the last 3 years they double dip on the DROP program basically getting twice the pay for 3 whole years!

He is not fired because of the freak in union, the unions protect the morons also that is why so many people are turning on unions. no common sense is used at these unions. Now if it's a public union he would get a multi week vacation while this played out I know a guy with sanitary who took 2 yrs off with pay while this drug BS played out in court. All public jobs including cops sheriffs n fire should have random drug testing. You want some interesting results just do the sheriffs dept

Unions, especially public unions cause nothing but useless Punic employees! You want to see how willing they are to have good employees start a random drug testing program and see how many cannot pass the test! This happens everyday in the private sector, half the sheriffs n police would not pass!

Just another useless congressman, here is a guy that went to law school and openly said he never planned on taking the bar! There should be a term limit on these clowns!

I bet neither sheriff was tested for drugs in thier system after the 2 acidents, in the private more important industries you immediately are sent for testing after an accident! All public employees should be randomly tested like many private sector jobs. I am sure the unions would fightThat! The lawyers for the accident victims should ask why they were not tested?

One thing Ditzler, Green or the vindy never mentions is how many are on disability? Many many sheriffs have gone out on disability that is never mentioned or investigated, this is an epidemic among county employees take the couple grand a month on disablitily then go find another job in another field or state! We all know of people that have done this in both the city and county jobs! Private sector you may get a yr or two , but county n city you get a lifetime of disability payments!

You want a real police or fire force with professionals do,like Pittsburgh does and make them atleast have a associates degree to get hired! There woiuld also be more jobs if these guys did not get to double dip and return and work another 3 yrs while putting away the income for 3 yrs while collecting full retirement while ripping the taxpayers off! Public unions should be banned!
