Police commanders’ salaries

Reading the article “Foster on ‘brink’ of going bankrupt” (March 31) in The Bee shows you two things. One, that no matter how much money you make, for some people it is never enough. And No. 2, it’s all on the back of taxpayers.

But what really bothers me is that this law officer who we trusted to protect us and keep the “bad guys” off the streets takes our tax money to live such a lavish lifestyle. This is an insult to all of us who work hard to make ends meet and sometimes just get by.

Police officers on the street deserve the pay they get and maybe even more, but we need to look at the commanders’ salaries because they are way out of line.
