  • US cop fired over deadly shooting 'rehired to get pension'

    A US police officer who was fired after shooting dead an unarmed man was temporarily rehired so he could apply for a pension, local media report.

    Philip Brailsford, 28, killed 26-year-old Daniel Shaver in the hallway of an Arizona hotel in early 2016.

    He was fired and charged with murder - but was acquitted at trial in 2017.

    Records show that he was briefly rehired last year so he could apply for a lifetime pension worth more than $2,500 (£2,000) a month.

    The move meant he could be medically retired - rather than fired - which made him eligible for the pension.

    "He was eligible for retirement benefits, so he applied for them," local official Chris Brady told ABC News. He added that Mr Brailsford had submitted a claim of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in connection with the shooting.

    The former officer signed an agreement with city officials that allowed him to apply for an accidental disability pension and medical retirement, the Mesa Police Department said.

    Records, seen by the Arizona Republic newspaper, show that Mr Brailsford was reinstated for 42 days last August so he could make the application.

    "[He] was not in any way fulfilling a capacity as a police officer" during this time, a police spokesman told the newspaper.

    Not giving someone a pension doesn't require a "no reasonable doubt" standard.

    No. I'm suggesting that if you are telling people they are hypocrites for complaining about the system while still living in this country, then I suggest they take their own advice for complaining about this country's systems. ie.. move out of the country

    Only difference is you complain about it the most.

    The beast only has power because a mob full of fools trusts it and gives it power. Worse are the people who suckle on teat of that power and that's why they support it. Enjoy the nipple.

    You called it murder but the guy walked! What do you do? Praise the entity the murderer works for that polices itself and lets its executioner walk and then you ask for more of the same! Yes sir, may you have another. Let us all know when you wake up from your coma.

    Keep feeding the beast with the hope it will eat you last, but make no mistake, it will eventually eat you.

    Acquitted by a jury every bit a part of the faithful flock as yourself, no doubt. That was a "show trial" if there ever was one as are nearly all cop trials.

    Here's the reality from the ACLU and not your boot-licking cult dogma:

    You murder someone and then have the chutzpah to ask for a medical pension due PTSD because you murdered someone? The worst part is? He'll get the pension. This is government in a nutshell and anyone who wants more of it is mentally defective.

    Gotcha...thanks. No big deal...I just thought it was weird.

    And to get back on topic. Looking at examples like this, how can anyone say that we need more f^cking government in our lives. I donít foresee this guy collecting too much of this pension. A family member of the person the cop murdered might make him permanently retired.
