    Retired NYPD cops probed for 'faking' mental illness to get benefits

    The cops -- many of whom were already collecting three-quarter, tax-free disability pensions for on-the-job orthopedic injuries -- stood to gain thousands more dollars a year in Social Security benefits if deemed to also have mental problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder, the source said.

    The probers compared the list of "mentally ill" retirees with a roster of ex-cops who were issued gun permits, a process in which a person has to swear he isn't taking any drugs for mental problems.
    Ah the life of a government thug; killing innocent people (then planting bogus evidence), helping mobsters, confiscating guns from innocent citizens and robbing the tax payer via public pensions. What a life it is.

    Orthopedic and PTSD disability diagnoses are waaaay too easy to prove. This makes me absolutely NUTZ.

    Our government is going to go bankrupt the same way as GM and Chrysler by creating pensions, benfits and salaries for goverment workers that are unsustainable. Right now the government is creating more government jobs to accelerate the process. Just like with the healthcare bill when the payment actually comes due the politicians who created the mess will be long gone already having bought votes for their tenures in office.

    It's the POTUS and Congress who are grossly overpaid.

    They should be paid the same as anyother GS (Federal Employee). I think the highest is GS14.

    Yeah, its no small wonder why Congressman fight so hard to stay in office. But you probably don't hear much of a peep from lower paid government workers when Congress gets a raise because they know their raises are coming too.
