No support given to sheriff or department

Recently Sheriff [Richard] Giardino addressed the county legislature, warning that his department was losing deputies at an alarming rate — some for better paying jobs, others due to retirement. Worse, the county has not signed a contract with the department’s union in several years which leaves pay at an old rate while expenses go up. All I thought was that were Giardino still the county court judge, he would have jailed the entire legislature for non-support.
