Given all the new crimes in East Greenville,including the robbery by knifepoint in broad daylight....why would any little town cut their police force ? That's an open invitation to come there and rob their little businesses. Like your Dunkin' Donuts and new little pharmacies. What are your powers that be thinking ??? Seems to me they are NOT. Must be some other things that could be cut. Yea..like come to East Greenville if you want an easy shot at crime or child molestation.

Seems to me the appropriate thing to do is layoff the commission. I don't think they'll be coming out to help in an emergency. I also find it difficult to believe that they would openly sacrifice the safety of people because they suck at balancing a budget.
