"Chicago Mayor Richard Daley has a police security detail, courtesy of the taxpayers. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has a police security detail, courtesy of the taxpayers. St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay has a police security detail, courtesy of the taxpayers. As, of course, do many other mayors (and other public officials), and the intent here is not to argue that this is necessarily inappropriate. ... What makes these mayors' taxpayer funded security so galling is the fact that they tend to do their very best to deny to those who are paying for their protection the right to an effective means of defending themselves."
