Going to the dogs?

Here a scam, there a scam, everywhere a scam-scam... and now they use the dogs to make some dirty money.

According to a report in Mid-day, the Bihar police not only spends Rs 8 lakhs a month on its 8 dogs stationed in Patna, but also.. "employs 28 dog handlers and almost 25 police personnel meant for cooking food for dogs and cleaning their 'quarters'."

Heh! If only I had 25 cops to clean my quarters, and cook for me... a dog's life sounds like a good life.

On paper at least, the state (kitty) is, literally, going to the dogs... maybe the rest of the dogs in the country should begin a 'Chalo Patna' andolan (movement), and demand that the Bihar police put it's money where their mouths are?

Hmm..think about it, 25 cops cooking and cleaning would mean that the job gets delegated from one guy to another till it never gets done. I bet the dogs are starving and are out scrounging for food (poor things!)

they are, r. they're starving alright. the rest of the article says that too - the dogs get bad food. many have died... on second thoughts, I don't want any cops cooking for me
