You must have scored VERY high and had 5 vet points. Between the Judge Curtin's set aside quotas and the back door BS, very few got hired on merit
I took the test twice and scored in the top ten on both lists. I didn't use my vets points. I saved them for promotional exams.

There will be some changes in the hierarchy of the Buffalo Police Department in the next few weeks.

The new appointments will be people who play the game!

Why should this time be any different? According to you (and I don't disagree) appointments are ALWAYS made by the people who play the game .... except in YOUR case that is! You are the ONE cop who actually worked his way up without "playing the game". Face it NEO .... you have more games than Milton Bradley - you are just in denial.

Just because your "patrolman" sister played the game to get her job, most likely on her knees, doesn't mean that we all had to.

This isn't about me. This is about you. How you couldn't meet the standards to get the job you wanted. So now you have a hard on against all those that did. You were rejected and now consider yourself a failure. You couldn't make the cut so you lash out in the only way you can by knocking those superior to you from behind your computer monitor. You are a joke and you know it. How does it feel to be laughed at by your little sister?

Thanks for the laugh, tough guy! Unfortunately for your little scenario.... I don't have any family members who are leeching off the taxpayers. It's ALL about YOU. Lets go over what we know:
You claim that you make 6 figures and will continue to rape the taxpayers until you die. Everything you have was made possible because you are in a union. Despite that FACT, you claim that you are a "NEOCON". That, Sally.... makes you a hypocrite. You claim that you don't kiss ass at work.... but that is also clearly not the case. You are in denial, Sally. You aren't "superior" to me or anyone else in any way shape or form. I make my own way, and make at least what you do - without union protection or juicing taxpayers. I am self-made. You are union made. You are a sad. pathetic little man who apparently thinks he is a badass. You are a hypocritical clown.

BS. You previously stated you have a sibling in law enforcement. Obviously it is your sister otherwise you would have said it's your brother.

You also stated you make more in 6 months than I do in two years that equates to $500K per year.

I am a conservative and have no choice in the union issue. Do you truly believe that a person conforms to 100% of their political affiliation’s convictions all the time? Especially when they have no choice in the matter? Do you think I enjoy giving 1.5% of every dollar I make to the union so they can pass it on to political candidates via their PAC to candidates I personally would never support?

You're the one with all the tough guy talk. Talk is cheap. I have to back up my talk on a daily basis. Do you?

Actually, I said it was my brother, and he's in Chicago Il.He understands what a union does for him. He doesn't back parties and candidates that are against that. That would be hypocritical.

No I do not "believe that a person conforms to 100% of their political affiliation’s convictions all the time? Especially when they have no choice in the matter?" That being said.... in a part of life as big as your career, I would expect someone to adhere to their principles. PLUS... you DO "have a choice in the matter". Spare me the old lifelong dream to be a cop and help people BS. You took the job for the stability, good pay and great benefits - all provided by the union. As far as you 1.5% union dues.... being a member of that union is what got you that great benefits package and hefty pay. They donate to politicians that ensure you KEEP that gravy train rolling. It's laughable that you "would never personally support" them, but enjoy the benefits. Again, hypocrite.

You "back up" your tough guy routine "every day"? LMAO. Hiding behind a badge, gun and your position? Yeah, your a real badass!

When I took the BPD exam, starting pay was about 13K. If not for the union, it would still be that much

I also don't want to be a cop and I proved that to the world very recntly

Huh??? I'm having a bit of difficulty following you here! In post #47 you state "I don't have any family members who are leeching off the taxpayers." Now you say "I said it was my brother, and he's in Chicago Il.He understands what a union does for him.".

So were you lying then, or are you lying now? Maybe if you just stuck to the truth it would be easier to keep your story straight and readers to comprehend your intentions.

And this conservative/union beef you conspicuously espouse....is it the conservative/public employee sector affiliation that troubles you or do you profess the conservative/private sector union combination just as reprehensible?

I do not hide behind my badge and gun. My position holds a great amount of responsibility. I have the authority to take away a person's freedom. I take my oath and responsibilities very seriously and use those powers only when absolutely necessary. I know my job and do it very well and don't abuse the powers entrusted to me. That's why I didn't need to play the games to get my appointments!

And yes, I am a badass...but only when the situation warrants and requires it!

If you take $1800 each from approximately 850 employees you get over $1.5 million per year! I truly believe with that amount of money we could hire some high price law firm to negotiate a decent contract for us every 2 or 3 years and take care of the incidentals too!

If you didn't want to be a cop why did you take the exam in the first place?

Back in those days Rochester was taking lateral transfers. A few BPD members went there because they paid better but most were sorry they made the move and came back.

Back then Rochester was advertising that they were doing some major hiring. I took the exam in the basement of their minor league hockey auditorium. There were about 1,000 people taking the test. When I got a latter stating I got a 97, I called to find out where I was on the list. They told me I had to go there to find out. They handed me a think binder that said "Non Minority Eligibility List" I was sixth on that list (some vets scored 102 because of vet points). They told me that only after ALL of the Rochester residents and minoities were hired would they call me. I never got a call

Buffalo pulled that same scam too. Held open recruiting for anybody anywhere to take the exam at $10.00 a pop. Afterwards the participants were told that only Buffalo residents will be hired. Money making scheme for sure!

The exams were free back then. I think they were reaching out of the city to find minorities, but they could not come out and say that
