Erie City Council members spent the morning doing a line-by-line review of the proposed 2012 Erie budget,

a $60.8 million plan that,

if enacted, would add $165 to the taxes paid by the owner of a $100,000 home.

They didn't cut much.

"We're not making any progress at all," said Councilman Pat Cappabianca,

At one point, tempers flared.

"We go through this process every year," Councilman Curtis Jones said, trying to calm the table.

"Bang, bang, bang.

What we really have to do is figure out how to work this out."

It saves the taxpayers money when the police miss the hearings. The US has too many people in prison already. Prisons are a big business and we need to stop putting non-violent criminals in jail. I hope more of the police miss their hearings and the judges throw out the charges.

how does the chief get in touch with his officers when he wants to speak with one?

e-mail, regular mail, wait til he shows up for work?

how do they get in touch with the officers when they need overtime? THEY USE THE PHONE!!!!

that's how you notify them for a court hearing and mail the notice to their house, call them the night before and the day of the hearing.

what else does the shift commander have to do?

if a cop gets the subpoena and ignores it, you hold them in contempt of court. that's what would happen with us.

If they locked up all the criminals, what would they have to do? Krispy cream only has so many doughnuts.
