First a purple heart, then the boot. They could make a job for him but they won't.

They could "make a job" for him? And why would you think he would want that in the first place? I can't imagine anyone, especially a veteran of the military and a police force wanting to be patronized in such a way. I guess you don't realize how insulting your comment seems, but it is.

BTW, how do you know he wasn't offered another position with the city or the FPD and decided to refuse it? Opinions are fine but not when they are presented as facts.

Let the man heal and deal with the the whole thing with his wife and family. Nobody gave him the boot, he is still on workmans comp, and he and his family are being taken care of, thanks to the generousity of the community. If and when they are able to determine that he has healed as much as possible, then deal with the long term decisions. For gosh sakes, it has only been 3 months since the shooting.

Yes. The last I heard it was $50,000 with additional funds and other assistance ready if needed. They have also paid quite a large amount of his medical bills but I can't recall the exact sum.
