    It's actually a gal. The article notes that she took assignments other officers didn't want, and worked a lot of nights and weekends. Most officers view overtime pay as a second income, and work as many or as few hours as they need to get by.

    All of the women that Giant Noodle has dated apparently don't have very good work ethics and make too much money. I'm sensing a common trend.

    STOCKTON, CA - A Stockton police sergeant earned nearly a quarter million dollars in 2009, placing fourth among city employees on a newly-released salary list.
    Sgt. Jan Goodnight's base salary was actually less than $100,000, but after earning overtime of more than $100,000 , her total gross income was higher than $222,000.
    "That's certainly a lot of money. I'm more surprised at the time she'd need to accumulate that. The amount of time she put in is pretty amazing," said Stockton police spokesman Pete Smith.
    Smith said Goodnight's overtime compensation came from state grants for various traffic enforcement operations. He also said Goodnight took assignments that other police sergeants turned down.
    "She gave up a lot of free time in days off to come back and work overtime," said Smith.
    The salary list of city of Stockton employees included 434 people earning more than $100,000 in 2009. The structure of government salaries earned plenty of criticism among shoppers at Stockton's Lincoln Center.
    "I think one of the big problems we have is salaries for government and city employees. They're so out of touch. We're paying for them when we can't make it ourselves. I don't like it at all," said Rick Braley.
    "The average pay (for government employees) is 20 percent higher than the average pay for someone in the private sector. There's an issue there," said Roger Vermulm.

    What are they bitching about? Was the OT legitimate or not? If they didnt pay her they would have had to pay someone else, unless it was simply fraud.
    Is it just not 'fair'?

    Based on what knowledge do you doubt it? Mind you...if it was NOT legit then she should be arrested and charged, along with the supervisor that authorized the OT. If it WAS legit...you will eat your words...right?

    Why not THAT much? It sounds like she got paid standard time and a half so she probably worked 60 hours a week.

    She should be paid for the hours she worked, whatever amount that is. Some capitalist you are.

    From my OWN experience (was I saw and what was told to me) Their overtime is laughable. (sitting in court doing nothing for hours on end just to represent the department and/or testify.... or be a desk jockey... or walk around carnivals run by the township.... etc)
    The money is there for the taking.... so they took it. BUT..... they didnt get paid NEARLY the amount the cop in the article did. She made $15K more a year unlike the women in the article.

    What Im saying is, they paid that lady far far far far too much money for overtime. Her base pay is insane unto itself. Also realize the vacations and they get the best healthcare for free and they get a HUGE pension.
    Once again..... the unions are taking advantage on the tax payers. And there and 3 year waiting lists to become a cop in my locality that are paid half the amount of said perp..... errrr.... cop in the article. And not because its the 'honerable' job to get. Its a damn great job to have for certain personality types. (Type A)

    And yes, I have dated my fair share of women. And I suppose you can compare my previous post because they were both union jobs where they are over paid for what they do BUT my fiance wasnt overpaid. I dont think she should get a pension though.
