Of all Walker's cuts

This one is a puzzler.

County Executive Scott Walker has decided the small unit that works to keep the worst sexual offenders away from the community doesn't need the staff it has, so he cut a paralegal in his budget proposal. If his cut stands, the paralegal will go away, but the work that person does won't, so lawyers will be doing the paralegal's work and their own work and both likely will suffer as a result.

Does that make the community safer? District Attorney John Chisholm sure doesn't think so.

Story, with links to Chisholm's letters of protest, here.
