Obscene pay for Port Authority cops who still fall down on safety

Next time you cross the GW Bridge and fume about the $15 Port Authority toll, consider: Some two dozen PA cops made more than $234,000 last year — including three who snagged over $300,000.

The Port Authority PD is a joke...yes a complete joke!  Its an ATM for these guys who are glorified security guards who break balls at the airports.  400 K  !!  You have to be kidding.  How many of them go disabled after one of these monster years?  Bet more than 50%!!  What happened to a CAP on these guys and girls?  Pushing idling cars out of pick up lanes is worth 400K?  Come on I'll do it 12 hours a day for 6 days a week for 125K and no benefits.....

 

 

 

By all means, tell us how you really feel.

The PA is its own monster machine.  It does its own thing.  No one tells it what to do.  No one asks what it is doing.  However, the PA is supposed to be watched over by the States of New York and New Jersey.  I don't know to what degree, if any, the states actually oversee the PA, but I personally believe that there should be more (especially when it comes to the airports!).  If you let a regional authority run unchecked, it will grow like a weed but with the strength of a tree.

I'am thinking the reason for no fence is the same as the San Diego-Coronado bridge...they don't want to spoil the view...unfortunately the SD-Coronado bridge is an easy bridge to jump from,low barriers .....same as the GW......

Sounds like someone is a little bitter.  Didn't make the cut ?? 

No my friend I didn't try to make the cut...what I am saying is the truth!  Ever see them at JFK in a lot way out near long term parking.SLEEPING? As for the comment someone made about the 23 who gave their lives..of course I am saddened for their loss just as much as I am saddened by the thousands of others who did also.  They were in the wrong place every at the wrong time@  THE truth is that they are GROSSLY OVERPAID!  Haven'the ever seen a PARAMEDICMAKE anywhere near that amount DESPITE THE FACT THAT THEIR JOB IS 100 TIMES MORE STRESSFUL than a Port Authority parking cop.
