      Is "because we can" a good reason to have poor service? Why not improve your brand perception by getting rid of that attitude?
    2. Can't really say they don't deserve their...

      Can't really say they don't deserve their success. If people want to buy them, they want to buy them. I'm not into them, but that doesn't mean they're unworthy.

      But I'll echo your confusion at...

      Cars are fun, but they don't REALLY matter, especially if you have a family on the way.

      Basically a lot of people lease in order to have much more expensive vehicles, they just eat the car note...

      This post says absolutely nothing. Prove your point instead of talking in generalities and ideas without bothering to substantiate them.

      I stated the MAJORITY of costs are salaries. Majority has a...

      I say it because it's true. It took mere minutes when discussing this issue to read a few Canadian police budgets at a high level and see that every single one of them has the majority of...

      In this thread I specifically said that they are not the same type of organization and that you can't compare them.

      The sentence you quoted merely points out that an organizations that provide...
    7. Got it. Only people who are in the public service...

      Got it. Only people who are in the public service can have unreasonable salaries.

      I'm not a police officer. You're not attacking my salary.

      Policing is not, and should not be, a free market...
    8. It's not a high number compared to other...

      It's not a high number compared to other professions. It's a tragic number no matter what, but you're MUCH more likely to die as a construction worker, for example, than a police officer.

    9. These are the more important types of questions,...

      These are the more important types of questions, and a lot of them probably surround how the law is written. Civilian roles can be an effective way to reducing the burden of tasks on trained officers...
    10. A company that provides services has a budget...

      A company that provides services has a budget that is almost entirely salary and benefits? NO WAY! Next you'll tell me that engineering firms spend the majority of their money on salaries for the...
    11. Some will. Some of them will have purchased homes...

      Some will. Some of them will have purchased homes before it became too expensive.

      Regardless, their salaries still aren't really out of line. Good job avoiding the fact that you misrepresented...

      Indeed a touch balancing act, but one that I want to see swing more towards people over profits. What a hippie I am, but i just don't need to be noticeably richer than I am today in exchange for...

      Not completely true.

      Salary and Benefits
      The following table represents the salary structure for Toronto Police Service Constables, as of July 2016.

      As someone who works in an Industry with one of the best reputations for safety culture (sometimes overboard even for me) what's written seems pretty believable. Low wages + schedule pressure =...
    15. How do people even "know" something like this?...

      How do people even "know" something like this? How often do you get pulled over that you have a meaningful number of encounters with police to determine that they'll "usually" let you go?

      LOL, fabulous.

      I sure hope Mr. Sessions doesn't ever partake in a cigar, or a glass of scotch, or a beer with the boys.

      Yeah, I'm with you on this. I don't understand the attitude that the cars used to look beautiful or something. F1 cars have always been technical and the visual appeal is in the technicality. I see...

      Wow, he seriously said that? I can't think of a US justice policy/attitude that failed harder. I can't see a single reason for that choice other than it will make it easier to charge immigrants with...

      The Audi dealer once tried to charge me $20 for four copper crush washers. I thought the parts guy was giving them to me when he dropped them into my hand. Then he told me to wait and printed an...
