‘Cut to the Bone’ Revisited Again

Somehow, the mayors of Warwick and Cranston seem to do just fine without police escorts, so we wonder why Providence Mayor David Cicilline needs not one, not two, but four city police officers to shadow him around all day—from his pre-dawn workout to diners in city nightclubs—costing a total of half a million dollars. Watch the mayor try to punt the question to the city police chief in this latest Hummel Report video. Remember, this is the same mayor who has criticized Gov. Carcieri for proposing cuts in state aid to towns and cities. Under the plan, Providence stood to lose about $22 million in state funding. Well, now we know the city could at least do without at least $500,000 of that.
