That's fine, you can say whatever you want. But I'm just correcting that guy with a fact. OT on top of a 76k job is not the same as OT on top of a 90k job. "10 or 15k here or there" does make a difference in what you see in your check every couple weeks.

When OT, Pension, Annuity, and health care outweigh that 10 or 15k by a factor of 5x or more than that 10 or 15k is peanuts.

This isn't some private sector job that is straight base pay. I'd happily give back 15% of my base pay if I could get all the bennies and OT that cops get.

That is basically what you sign up for when you get on with a civil service job. The pension and benefits. It's obviously not gonna make you a wealthy person. The salary barely let's you get by while raising a family in any decent area in the tri-state area. Anybody who talks down to civil servants because they think they have it so cushy could have gone that route. But when times were booming, being a garbage man was laughable.

Sex Assault Pattern Continues In Brooklyn, Number Of Attacks Reaches 20
Oct 14, 2011 11:47 p.m.


NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - On Friday, the NYPD was canvassing Windsor Terrace, where another sex assault bumped the total to 20 in Brooklyn since March.

"I think it would have been less scary if it were one man, but since there are like six or eight or 10, it's very like overwhelming because you don't know who it is," resident Karen Capistran told CBS 2's Sean Hennessey.

The latest attack happened Thursday night near a Windsor Terrace park, at 7th Avenue and 18th Street. Police said a young woman walking with a German Shepard was groped by a man who claimed he had a knife.

"I'm shocked that this man is bold enough to approach someone with an animal, with a pet, especially a pet that could attack him," said Meagan Dwyer of Windsor Terrace.

"I don't feel safe in my neighborhood anymore, and I don't understand if they think it's a joke or what," said Stacey Sperling of Windsor Terrace.

When the woman screamed, the dog jumped on the man and he ran off.

"Very dangerous. We're so scared," said Rosie Velez of Kensington.

"I mean it's the subway, it's New York. There's a lot of people here," said an incredulous Brylee Plyshebsky of Kensington.

LISTEN: 1010 WINS' Al Jones reports

Police have found similarities in a half dozen attacks that took place on the subway, the F line in particular, where women were attacked on the platform, walking up the stairs, or at the turnstiles.

"Outrageous. Makes me want to run," said resident Gabriella Aguilera.

The sexual assaults began in March with the horrific screams of a woman fighting off her attacker, yet six months later only one suspect has been arrested, 26-year-old Adolfo Martinez, on charges of sex abuse in the 3rd degree for allegedly groping an 18-year-old woman in Sunset Park.

Police believe at least three more suspects are still out there.

"I'm worried. I'm definitely more aware when I walk home at night. It hasn't particularly scared me that much," said Katherine Young of Sunset Park.

The pattern of assaults led some women to change their habits so they don't become the 21st victim.

"Not walking around later at night, you know, usually walking with someone else, carrying something that I could possible use as a weapon," said Ellie Kirk of Sunset Park.

Police are offering a reward of $12,000 for information leading to arrest and conviction of the suspect - or suspects involved in the attempted rapes and groping incidents. Police urge anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS. All calls are kept confidential, and tipsters can be kept anonymous and be paid by code number.

You get the point. When cops cry about the dangers of their job,I laugh. There are literally handfuls of more dangerous jobs in the US.

I do not deny that being a cop is a stressful job but so is almost every job in America. Especially in the private sector.
You see no difference between someone who is willing, and bound by his/her duties, to put themselves in harms way for others, and construction workers who die/injured in accidents?

What is the difference exactly?
They're both working for the paycheck, correct? Or do most of them become cops because of their need to satisfy a boundless devotion to the rest of humanity?
Also, judging by the civilian murder/assault rate and rate for cops, they don't really do a good job of putting themselves in "harms way". Not that it's their fault. They can't predict crimes (for the most part) and are only there after something has already occurred.

Cut this PBA bull****.

I have no problem with cops getting what they get but I do have a problem with all of the bull**** that's peddled by them and their lobbying groups.
