True, but when the public sees a cop get busted for molesting a 13 year old, is he fired? Hell no!

He's put on PAID leave, pending an "investigation", which finds him not guilty. Courtesy of the union.

Ditto public school teachers, ditto mayors, ditto pretty much 95% of "public servants" who get caught doing rotten, illegal acts that would land a regular citizen in the pokey for a LONG time.

You're correct that not all public sector folks are bad. It's just that we see so much corruption. On a daily basis. Like the woman in California who's contract stipulates that she MUST be the highest paid employee in the county. 400K per year is just not ENOUGH for her. She wants MORE.

I DO like my postman, but he's a pretty stand-up guy.

“I DO like my postman, but he’s a pretty stand-up guy.”

There are plenty of stand-up guys and gals out there. Unfortunately, you only hear about the bad ones. The MSM thrives on rotten news and bad behavior, not the good.

He's in the Dreaded Private Sector (technically — signed by Milhous in 1970).

I know of a guy at USC down here who barely shows up at all to his job, if he does expect some lights to be turned on at most. The guy has vandalized at least one VIP’s car on the property and all he had to do was pay for damages. The guy is very unremarkable in every way but somehow he is immune to the effects of what he does. It has been going on for years. While I was there (another department) I got nothing but grief and misery trying to efficient, competent, and keep up with the ever changing whims of the hag that ran the place. She left a while back for TD Bank. I feel sort of sorry for TD. What little contract work I did for them, I liked the people I ran into generally.

Another open secret at another state agency is an entrenched manager that openly sleeps on the back dock a lot in plain view or in his office and has for many years. He must have something good on someone or a friend in a really high place.
