Santa Ana Police Hold City Council Hostage [OC Weekly Editorial Cartoon]EXPAND
Cartoon by Algae

At a time when the SanTana City Council is looking at insolvency in the next couple of years due to a huge budget deficit, they still nevertheless got around to giving police officers a pretty nice raise.

To mark this hijacking of democracy, Orange Feathers cartoonist Algae drew the above. Asked for an artist's statement, he only replied with this:
