    Board narrowly rules Burge can keep pension - chicagotribune.com

    We have this same problem in Ohio. A public official who is convicted of malfeasance in office is permitted to keep his pension. I think it's abhorrent -- we should be suing to recover the salaries we paid these people. Private pensions usually have "bad boy" provisions -- why don't public pensions?

    What say you?

    I think it's freaking wonderful that a cop lives to draw a pension. Give it to him.

    So you folks are claiming that liberal Democrats support cops terrorizing suspects in criminal cases?

    I dun give a shit what party this freak belongs to. The people who have been caught here in Ohio are all Democrats, and that dun matter either. I dun see why a state or any other government should pay a pension to someone whose conduct in office is so bad it got him sent to prison.

    :clap2:

    You should see the pages long list of local officials the next county over going down on Federal corruption charges - from school board members selling teaching jobs to judges taking bribes. And it keeps on growing. (It's long been a mob haven)

    If any one of these asses who draws a pension is able to keep it, there will be torches and pitchforks. Party be damned.

    I wonder who this FORMER cop knows and what he has on them?
