“Release Time” – Police Union Doublespeak to Advance Own Aims With Your Coin

Release time. According to Clint Bolick “Officers are released from their police work to do union work full-time. It’s one of the big hidden scams in America.”

Bolick, who works at the Phoenix-based Goldwater Institute, noted that six individuals employed at the Phoenix police department work fulltime on union issues. And that in the budget of that criminal outfit is funding for an additional 2,000-hours of union-related work.

Huh? Is that how you’d choose to allocate the wealth you create?

But one shouldn’t be too surprised, after all, we’re talking about a coercive monopoly.

If you’re in Arizona and agree that badges don’t grant extra rights, get-active with Arizona Cop Block!

And for the record I think Stossel’s allowance for some “legitimate” theft is inconsistent for someone who claims to stand for freedom and responsibility, as the idea that an action wrong for me or you could be right when done by someone wearing a different attire is ludicrous. And, we see – both with the institutionalized violence and misallocation of resources – just what a flawed idea a double-standard or extra rights really is.
