Former New York Cops Collect Disability While Pursuing Athletic Interests

Unless you are a foreigner, jobs are hard to find in Obama’s economy. Good thing we don’t need them anyway. We can just go on disability, which has the advantage of freeing up time so that we can pursue personal hobbies like bodybuilding:

An NYPD officer who retired with a disability pension now regularly participates in bodybuilding competitions — and pension rules permit it.

Derek Huebner retired on Aug. 31, 1996 after six years on the force, according to the New York City Police Pension Fund.

He receives $40,885.20, tax-free plus benefits, every year from the fund…

Huebner supposedly injured his shoulder back in the 1990s, but started bodybuilding about a year later.

Another athletic disabled person who used the NYPD as a stepping stool to climb aboard the disability gravy train is Christopher DePaolis:

A retired NYPD cop awarded a disability pension after tearing up his knee in a foot pursuit works as a sheriff’s deputy near Miami and runs races — and it’s all legal.

The unabashed abuse of taxpayer dollars is laid bare on the Facebook page of the cop, Christopher DePaolis, where he lamented America’s descent into a handout culture — and shared his decision to screw the state for all it’s worth.

“Now I’ll take whatever I can get for this state and not feel one bit bad. If everyone else is going to get free s–t and not have to work. . . . I plan to do the same now. They made it clear to me so now am joining them,” he wrote on Facebook Nov. 7, 2012, the day after President Obama was reelected.

You could call it “going Galt for freeloaders.” Truth to tell, in a society run by parasites, the only other option is to be their host — or to work hard to overthrow the parasites.

On Aug. 30, 2013, DePaolis was approved for his NYPD disability pension, which provides him with $6,839 per month — or $82,069 annually, according to the New York City Police Pension Fund. The pension is tax-free, and also provides health benefits for life.

Meanwhile others bust their tails to pay for it.

On top of the disability, DePaolis earns $52,156 working for the Broward County Sheriff’s Department in Florida, which is not prohibited by the terms of the disability pension.

It is so easy to qualify for disability that a growing number of Americans are retiring in their 20s. This is how the Obama Regime is able to keep the official unemployment rate low even while the workforce participation rate declines. Only people who are looking for work count as unemployed. Why look for a job when the government will pay you to stay idle?

It isn’t a system of government. It is a looting spree.

    I was just too honest when I was younger. I should have joined the NYPD, between the graft, payoffs, licenses to kill and terrorize – add in the retirement after 5 years..

    I was astounded by the number of cops driving $120,000 mercedes benzes and owning money laundromats disguised as sports bars.

    I just wonder if he has a handicap emblem on his license plate too.

    Theft is a crime. GEtting the government to do it for you is not an excuse. And pretending innocence for this crime is not acceptable.

    And this must come to an end. That’s what we have: theft with government as the middle man. He takes a cut, but its not from the beneficiary so who cares right??

    Fortunately this only happens in New York right?? No where else of course…..

    It’s no secret that so-called public servants are some of the biggest criminals and benefits abuse scam artists out there.

    A nation without honor is a nation without a future.Today the United States finds itself in a quagmire of ever-increasing self-doubt and foreboding.Chief among the factors that have brought America to this point has been the abandonment of a sense of what is right, just and true as it relates to the duty imposed by conscience. Honor is being abandoned and replaced by duplicity,avarice,self-aggrandizement,cowardice and an unbridled lust for power and notoriety.God help us all.(McCANN/AT).

    NYC is well on its way to becoming the northeast’s Detroit.

    Yes and no… All of the criminals who launder money through here and the access to the Federal printing press will keep and continue to make many areas extremely exclusive. The middle class is who is crushed and ground down, but that is according to plan. Palaces in the sky and a cesspool on the ground, it is the way of despots and communists.

    Gotta give him this: in that 2nd pic, he does look extremely mentally disabled. Seek professional help, man, and right away!

    We have a cop on disability here in Orydumb that climbs mountains. I believe he helped in a helicopter accident on Mt. Hood.

    I work in financial aid for a technical college. I had a woman in my office today who had earned two AS degrees from us, one in Medical Billing and Coding and one in Health Care Administration. She was going for a third degree when she dropped out and applied for disability. Which was granted. Now she may be eligible to have her ~$45,000 in school loans “discharged” (forgiven by the government) because she cannot work.

    The disability? She weighs at least 400 pounds. She so fat she was usually seen in the hallway in an oversized wheelchair.

    Some days I’m proud to have a full-time job and support myself. Other days I wonder what the hell I’m doing, contributing to stuff like this.

    Mr. Universe there needs to continue his body building in the yard of the nearest prison.
