How can we justify paying NEW police officers $92,000 per year? And then offer additional incentives on top of that? The Bay is already pricing many companies and individuals away.
And if (when) the Google money stops flowing, what then? Our cost structure is based on taxes on text ads flowing forever.

I also find a $92k starting salary for cops unbelievably high. My starting salary out of law school was $70k back in 2004.
I can't even justify their high salary with these claims that cops are "putting their lives in danger" for the sake of the community. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that more civilians than cops in MV have been fatally shot or otherwise wounded within the past 10 years. All the cops do around here is write parking tickets and make DUI arrests. Oooh, that's really putting your life at stake. Please give me a housing bonus, since I'm more likely to be killed by criminals than they are.

A tip of the hat to our exceptional police force. We are very lucky to live in a town with such great public servants working on our behalf.
me me me- your comments would be laughable if they werent so sad.
