Re: Sound Off: Do you believe police furloughs are necessary to balance the budget?

This is an old trick of politicians. The minute things get tough and the budget needs cutting, they cut police and fire department. This happens everywhere, not just El Paso. No doubt there are a jillion other places the cutting could take place other than the most necessary police and firemen. This city needs to stand back and take a look at what is happening. The waste that goes on in the city is enormous.
