San Diego Police Department Asking For Budget Increase

"Police Chief William Lansdowne said the department has tried to be more efficient. But he said years of budget cuts have brought the department to a tipping point."

And yet, the Policy Chief authorized expenditures of $2.4 million last year on the Occupy movement at Civic Center. Meanwhile, I worked in the area and saw dozens of officers standing around for months guarding peaceful protesters. This was certainly not a judicious use of police resources, contrary to the claims of Police Chief Landsdowne.
