“Fact is cops make fortunes off their tax paid OT”
“Fortune?” Please let us all know what qualifies as a “fortune?”
“it's even schemed to pad their lucrative tax payer funded retirement pensions.”
All those that retire receive “lucrative” pensions? What is a “lucrative” pension. A number please. You are accusing all officers that retire of receiving "lucrative" pensions. That is news to the county and city guys here. . .and I've looked it up. Not enough to live on, that is for sure. Where are the facts and stats you use to back up your statement?
Or, are you referring to those located in select few demoncRAT cities where ALL city employees are paid a "fortune" and receive “lucrative” pensions. . .all.
“And in this case they stood around watching parts of that city burn while they collected OT?”
Ordered to stand down, ordered to not engage. With no support from people that have an anti-police agenda, and being the focus of anger and vitriol by agitators and race-pimping demoncRAT politicos, hard to expect them to violate a standing order and then open himself up to be fired and/or sued if little Mr Rioter gets hurt by an officer that was acting outside his remit.
“Now this guy brags and broadcasts to the world he and his wifey are enjoying all the extra OT money he got?”
Nothing wrong with spending the bucks how he wants, on what he wants. . .unless you are moochell and the messiah. Its his bucks, and the bucks he got paid for a B&B and a dinner. Hardly a heck of a lot of money.
Do you live in some isolated cave? The so-called public servant pensions and corruption are choking off entire states.
In Yonkers, more than 100 retired police officers and firefighters are collecting pensions greater than their pay when they were working. One of the youngest, Hugo Tassone, retired at 44 with a base pay of about $74,000 a year. His pension is now $101,333 a year.
Its what the system promised, said Mr. Tassone, now 47, adding that he did nothing wrong by adding lots of overtime to his base pay shortly before retiring.
Retired at 44?
A pension of $101,000?
I suggest you update and reboot yourself.
