Mayor pans police, fire pay raises:

‘I’m just trying to keep balance,’ he said. ‘I am not recommending a 15 percent raise for any sector of our employees.’

I was going to ask if any other sector of your employees regularly gets shot at or runs into burning buildings, but then I realized that in Birmingham, just about everyone can count on being shot at these days and it just happens more often for the cops. So carry on.
