Seventy-four crimes committed while netting nary a single offender?

Good Jorb!

Now, just how many overtime hours (used to pad retirement pay) did that cost everyone?

I guess if they don't care about observing the Constitution we might as well go for a full-blown dictatorship, as obviously, it's the only way they can ensure our safety.

That "public servants" would ever consider engaging in this type of behavior, let alone use it as a scam to increase their retirement pay is absolutely disgusting.
