The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
A screaming comes across the sky.
It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.Pynchon - Gravity's Rainbow
Your analogy makes absolutely perfect sense. You are the employee of the school district. And, as such, you would be covered under their insurance -- Worker's Comp, or whatever. It's not the same thing, Caine.
If you were killed in the performance of those duties, the school's Worker's Comp would cover you -- as would any life insurance policy you had. There's probably a higher benefit for "killed in the line of duty." Or, perhaps, that's the only kind of life insurance your benefit provides. But that's the only way your LIFE insurance wouldn't kick in. Hard to believe the only life benefit a PD gives a copper is one that provides for a benefit only if killed in the line of duty. Though I could, as I said, easily believe the benefit would be many times different than accidental or other death.
Thank you, Quazi!

If I go and get myself killed outside of the line of duty, I understand that my wife won't get anything. And she understands this, and you won't hear her bitching and moaning about how evil the city is for not paying it anyways.
Not ONLY were they wrong.... they should be charged willfully neglecting and felony animal abuse.
