this picketing by the deputies guild is legal and morally based, it is informational. The three Demo Commissioners are bending to special interest groups who would rather have beach watchers, good rose bushes rather than a full compliment of deputies to keep the peace we so enjoy on our island. The immature comissioners are making once again disasterous decisions without experience and good sense. They have wasted more taxpayers money on senseless projects and programs. They will feel the result of their bungling at the next election, I say vote them all out and lets have leadship with strong minds and spines.

NJ sheds up to 700 cops statewide on July 1st.

Chances are the 10 cops getting furloughed in your county won't be missed either.

I don't think I want this person to be a deputy on the Island
under any circumstance.
