This is all well and good to discuss now, but what happens when Paxton the Mystical Chief has filled the ranks with somalis and they want to wage jihad while on disability?

The original intent of "light duty" was to keep lost time accident rates down. No doubt in my mind its being abused in many cases.

If they insist and get ths then they should be replacing office and administration staff. No need to have more on the payroll than needed.

If they can't do their job and want to continue on the rolls then they replace office workers.

Fire the office workers.

Personally I'm fed up with lofty position firefighters and police are given.

70% of all firefighters are volunteers but you never see parades or lavish exhibitions for them. I don't know the percentage of auxiliary police and sheriff.
