yeah, drivers have a disturbingly/sadly high fatality rate according to data from 2017.  actual numbers in case people were curious... for retail/commercial drivers, 26.9 fatal injuries per 100k employees, more than double that of police (12.9/100k).  the stats I could find for pizza delivery drivers alone is crazy - more than 20 fatalities in 2014, a huge number for a largely part time workforce.

A new survey from Pew Research Center shows that 42 percent of U.S. adults believe local police spending across the country should stay the same. Of those who believe it should increase, 20 percent are in favor of increasing police spending by a little and 11 percent would increase spending by a lot. Just 14 percent and 12 percent of U.S. respondents said they would decrease spending by a little and by a lot, respectively.

Still, other results from the survey show a majority of U.S. adults prefer additional policies and measures to keep police officers from elevating themselves above the law.

Yep,  politicians and the media are going to go to sleep on this issue (again) unless they have their noses rubbed in it.

Jordy Martel, who is Latino, has been fired and now faces charges after video from January 14, 2019 showed him dragging 33-year-old Safiya Satchell from her SUV, kneeling on her neck and using his Taser on her twice.

Satchell, who was four months pregnant, later miscarried. The video was recorded by her friend outside of Tootsies Cabaret, an adult club in Miami Gardens, a Florida city about 18 miles north of Miami.

Seniority. I’m sure it’s written into their CBA.

The union and city would have to Re-Bargain to reduce the retirement age since it’s talking about less funding and force retirements. Thus why it’s better to create an entirely new unit of social workers/Good Samaritans(UK’s thing) outside of the existing CBA.

That said here’s a interesting article from 2018, that actually sheds some light on the technicality of the matter: https://mynorthwest.com/1133630/cops-leaving-seattle-police-hiring/?

Either way their CBA is up at the end of this year so everything going on is part of the negotiations. It’s pretty clear the officers feel they already aren’t getting paid enough, compared to surrounding jurisdictions they could join and make more(not really sure where the article was getting that though, I looked, Seattle and it’s suburbs all seem to be on about par). Not a good situation for anyone right now.
