You too, unions

Re "Million paid in alleged police assault," Feb. 3

Cities statewide continue to pay millions to alleged and court-determined victims of malfeasance by their employees. In this case, the amount lost by the city of Hawthorne is $1 million. That is money and time that would be better spent improving public services to the city's residents.

Employee unions should be held monetarily responsible, at least partially, for the problems caused by their members. Until the union is involved, the financial carnage will continue unabated.
