Yes, the public appreciates the work done by firefighters and police officers.

According to the numbers, however, these have to be the most accident-prone people in the state. The board that approves the disability needs to be independant of either union to stay credible.

I can see free tuition for the injured worker, but for a spouse & child as well is a complete fleecing of taxpayer money.

Usually they get disability then go to Fla. and get a job down there while collecting from RI. No wonder we're in debt up to our eyeballs. In Mass. they don't even bother moving though.
