your out of your mind life expectance you pulled that one out of your ass, u think its justice for a top cop to get a huge pension then return to work as a fat out of shape top cop sitting in an office the only thing shortening his life is the amount of donuts he ate. you people have no respect for the public that pays your salary constant abuse of power im more scared of a cop then a street thug any day of the week.

'Police Pay
In response to the March 4 letter, "Blue Benefits," may I state that it is not the police but the writer who is "missing the bigger picture."
This month marks my eighth year as a Nassau County police officer and - contrary to what County Executive Thomas Suozzi and Newsday would have you believe - I have never come close to earning $100,000 in any year. In fact, I have never made even $90,000 in my eight years on the force.
The writer also misses the "big picture" when he talks about retired police officers collecting their pensions for 40 years. The life expectancy of a retired police officer is far shorter than that of workers in the private sector - the same one where most of you do not have to work nights, weekends and holidays.
Then, the writer tries to compare the differences in our work "when things get tight." Let me point out another difference in law enforcement as opposed to the private sector when things get "tight." In my job when things get "tight," there is a good chance I could get hurt or killed.
And, lastly, in response to the writer's advice that I have my spouse work: She does work, in a job I left - underpaid member of the New York City police.

Not to mention all the other crimes committed by the sharks on Wall Street. The drinking and drug use, and the money spent on illegal gambling and "adult entertainment" by these guys is beyond belief! However, unlike the original poster's take on all cops, I won't say that everyone who works on Wall Street is a crook, but there are far too many who are.

Unfortunately, it's a proven fact that law enforcement officers have a shorter life expectancy after retirement than most other professions. Why are you so angry at all cops? Sounds like you've had a few encounters with them in your life, and my guess is they didn't turn out very well for you!

get real. you say you don't make $90,000 and you are right you probably make between $90 and $100,000. I have worked plenty of weekends and holidays - you think your job is the only one with those hours??? and no I could not do your job because I am not a narcissist who wants to be a bully and push everyone around. Cops can outright murder people and the Blue Wall protects them. People become cops for the power it gives them. They can feel superior and commit any crime they want without consequences - same for their families.

Every year I have an encounter with the police that doesn't turn out well. I have to fork over a sickening amount of taxes which go to pay the police grossly inflated salaries. And it turn, they go out and commit crimes they get paid to enforce. Now you know why we are angry.

i agree with him - would rather have a run in with a street thug than a cop any day. the thug may not kill you since he has more to lose. the cop can kill you and get away with it. And before you say it I have never had a run in with any cops but I do have some in the family (distant) and I hear their stories about how they beat up this guy or wrote a bunch of tickets because they felt like it.

And just how much of your taxes goes to the police? Probably a lot less than you spend on beer and snacks each year! Cops are held to a higher standard than the average citizen. The small minority who commit crimes receive harsher sentences than do those who aren't cops, who commit the same crimes. It seems that those who are most vehemently against the police are the ones who most likely have had police encounters themselves, by breaking the law, hence their hatred and bitterness towards cops. If the shoe fits...

I hope you get your wish. Then (if you survive), you can come back and tell us how well your encounter with a street thug went!

More of "LI's finest" commiting crimes. Starting to wonder who the cops are and who the criminals are. With the recent police brutality resulting in death and now this, one begins to wonder.
It only figures that someone from Brentwood would make this comment. If you destroy the foundation of our society, such as law enforcement, we will be a third world country, God forbid.

Yeah, but what about all the lives they save? And the criminals they bring to justice?

Maybe you are 28 years old, 6'4" and 190 pounds and can defend yourself, but not everybody else is. There are children, elderly, women and weaker people, etc. who need protection.

And you won't always be that strong, plus everybody needs help sometimes.
