AG Cooper says state budget 'really cutting to the bone'

READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- North Carolina Attorney General says the current state budget proposal could hurt law enforcement in the state.

Roy Coper met with the Wilmington Central Rotary Club today. He talked about the budget and its effects on the criminal justice system. His visit was part of his statewide campaign encouraging the importance of public safety.

He says he is incredibly concerned about the ability of law enforcement moving forward under the proposed budget.

"I'm encouraging people to talk to their legislators, talk to their members of Congress about making sure that we don't scrimp on law enforcement and technology and the things we need to keep us safe," Cooper said.

Cooper says the State Bureau of Investigation will have to look at cutting a number of agent and analyst positions. He also added that the latest cuts are "really cutting to the bone."

This is a joke, Right?

surely no one has such a poor grasp of grammar and spelling.

Clear proof, if these are your skill levels, that the educational system, in its current form, fails to get the job done. Throwing more money at the problem will not fix it no matter what Smiley thinks.

Proof

This post is just further evidence that our education system wasn't working in it's current state and we should charge our educators with becoming creative to fix the system.

It's unbelievable how many adults have little grasp of the English language, and yet still manage to rant and rave about educational issues.
