#1 There has been a lot of commentary about cops leaving the job early, but no one is talking about how to replace them. The first problem is throughput - the recruitment/training/graduation process is sized to meet the current retirement rate. Cutting budgets is not going to make this better.

The second problem is what do you replace the retirees with? Let us say, for the sake of argument, there are two reasons to become a cop: 1) You want to make the world better or 2) You want to push people around. Anyone in Group 1 will find greener pastures than your big Progressive city, either small town departments or another profession entirely. For Group 2, this is a gold mine. Departments will be desperate for bodies, standards and testing be damned.

tl;dr: The current Progressive city fuckedupedness will result in smaller and worser police forces.
