The Merced Way: defund Parks&Rec to pay cops

We were reminded of past malfeasance in the City of Merced against the Parks and Recreation Department while watching the June 15 meeting of the City Council. A number of speakers from South Merced denounced city staff and elected officials for plundering the department to backfill the police budget.
