"Crime is on the rise in one small Texas city because the police department has been padlocked and the officers sent home. The city of Alto laid off its entire police force about two weeks ago because the city council completely cut the department's budget. ... 'We had to do something drastic,' Councilman Jerry Flowers explained to Forbes. 'The police department being a non-money-making entity, was the easiest to get rid of while we catch our breath and build up some cash.'" (07/05/11)
