Point of View: There's nothing illegal about being stupid

Posted: Updated:

It is a thorn in the side of the Hinds County Board of Supervisors that just can not be pulled out. I'm talking about the issue of the multi-million dollar Airwave contract to maintain county radios, site maintenance for the communication and siren towers.  

Two of the supervisors are happy with this service where there is zero accounting of what work is actually even being done.

Two others have real problems with paying out this kind of hard earned taxpayer dough, while another supervisor just sits there like a knot on a log after a vote was requested to rescind the contract this week. It's real strange.

This vast amount of money streaming out of county coffers is literally unchecked.

The company was caught red handed doing nothing to show work was being done 4 years ago.   And the state auditor summed it up best last year when he told WLBT News that there's nothing illegal about wasting money.

There's nothing illegal about being stupid either.

That's my point of view.
