I can't believe this guy. And then the paper mentions that he may or may not keep his pension... Wtf. this is what is wrong with the system. He does something wrong and he gets a slap on the wrist. It just doesnt get any better than this. u really can't make it up. Politicians are bought and we the public are left to foot the bill. When are people going to wake up and see just how corrupt the unions are. Sweet heart contracts that make them upper class. when did becoming a cop make you well off on the tax dollar. 120,000.00 plus salaries for all of nj cops these day, plus overtime up the ass. equals big time pay. don't u people get tired of seeing cops on the side of the road with flashing lights doing absolutely nothing making 400 for 4 hours of doing nothing. Again, u can't make this shit up. But i don't blame the cop, the system is set up were your just doing your job. I would take it too. wake up people, I would love for towns to start going bankrupt, stop all this madness. But its just a dream of mine. business as ussual. U know how f ed up politics are when they can't even get rid of Mack, the convicted mayor of trenton.
