Police Protest: All the Cops in Mass Resignation

The town of Mioveni, in Argeş County, Romania, came a step closer to becoming a lawless town, after it was left with only two of its 33 local law enforcers. 31 of them simply quit their jobs on the same day, in protest towards salary cuts. The police officers were being paid less than 100 Euros a month, after the Romanian government decided to cut their salaries by 25 percent and to also suspend their bonuses. The mayor of the 35.000 strong town of Mioveni says he understands their grief, but that he can not overturn a government decision. Luckily, the law in Mioveni is still being enforced by a contingent of national police – whose officers have suffered the same reduction in pay as their local counterparts.
