A good friend of mine retired from Miami pd and makes a similar amount. I was shocked, but a small town tn cop retired and said he was sitting at 50K a year.
Saw a prepper show where a retired leo built a very expensive bunker.
What do Gov Scott and AG Bondi have to say, about this?
She seems to have gone radio silent. Especially after her we know more than you know comment.
And he completely failed at his job.
The tax payers are being economically gang banged and looted.
His pension is actually higher than his last years salary.
In California the pension is based on the highest years salary. So the final years before retirement, all the other policeman or fireman would give up their hours to whoever was retiring, so they could have lots of overtime.
All of them were disgusting parasites just trying to bankrupt the taxpayers. I hope there is justice on this world for them eventually. I know theyll have justice eventually, but I would really like to see it myself.
Typical public employee rape of the taxpayers.
Understanding Peterson's specific situation helps shed light on the broader implications of public retirement costs in Florida and around the country. An employee like Peterson, who was by all accounts a typical deputy in the sprawling Broward County Sheriff's Office (BCSO) before his unfortunate rise to national prominence this month, is afforded a retirement package that kicks in at age 52 and allows him to collect a pension even if he pursues other work after his retirement. It's vastly different from what most private sector workers can expect to receive. The difference is premised on the idea that Peterson put his life on the line in a high-risk profession.
The payouts are virtually guaranteed, regardless of performance in the line of duty. Under state law, pensions can be forfeited only after a conviction for a narrowly defined list of crimes.
Whew. I was hoping to see that.
“From the looks of his pension, it seems Florida is headed down the same road as Illinois. I wonder how old he is?”
Retirement packages are like that in almost any blue county in the United States. Some teachers’ (especially administration) packages are mind boggling.
Defined benefits packages are a neutron bomb waiting to go off in this country.
That scumbag is getting over $2 grand a week!
A coward’s purse.
“Saw a prepper show where a retired leo built a very expensive bunker.”
Meaningless,even cops inherit money,have wives with large incomes, or have other sources of income other than a pension .
“I was shocked, but a small town tn cop retired and said he was sitting at 50K a year.”
That’s reasonable ... retire at 55 from a blue collar job like being a cop @ $50K/year pension (assuming the employee paid into a retirement fund accordingly for 30 years) ... that gives them plenty of time to do something else to earn even more for a comfortable retirement.
This $100K+ and full health care is crazy for a guy that ran from a scene that resulted in the deaths of 17 kids!!!! He failed catastrophically at his job. Taxpayers should be up in arms over this.
Nice gig if you can cower in fear and get it.
8,702.35/ mo. x 12 mo = $104,428 per YEAR in PENSION?!?!?!?!
For not working?
(Not that he did before retirement)
That is outrageous.
How can a pension be more than the salary?
This joker is making nearly as much retirement as a military O-6 (full colonel) with 32 years of service! He’s a retired school guard! Wow!

I hope the same thing about Lois Lerner, quite frankly.
