    Yeah, at the same time I've seen lots of cases where I felt fraud should be more vigorously investigated and the standards tightened up. It's one of those weird political issues where both sides have valid points, but are so ideologically entrenched, any reasonable middle is hard to achieve

    I agree. It's impossible to know what pain another experiences. Very hard call to make there. It's also very difficult to simply look at someone and determine that they aren't disabled - not all disabilities are physical, and many physical disabilities are not necessarily something one might notice except under certain circumstances. Generally speaking, if a person knows disability fraud is occurring, much information is required in order to pursue it, and the person reporting may be required to offer as much evidence as possible in advance. Depending on the nature of the fraud, the reporter may be required to offer personal information as well. That's probably a huge deterrent, but I can understand it's necessity. IOW, if one wants to report disability fraud, better be as certain as possible and committed to following through.
