Great name calling. And what background do you have that you are such a public safety expert?Originally posted by: MrDudeMan
Nice change of tone between your first incredibly stupid post and this less but still stupid post. The parents just pretty much lost their fucking child and all she (and you) can think about is how to complain more loudly than the next person about your benefits. You've had your job for 26 years so it must not be that big of a problem you asshole.Originally posted by: cardiac
Nowhere did I say that I agree with her suing the family. I am just giving a picture of how most municipalities treat their public safety people, even when they get hurt on the job......
However, nowhere did I ever say she was right in suing. I'm just saying that so many public safety people think that they are going to be OK if something happens to them on the job, and when it comes down to it, they are hung out to dry.
Guys, everyone knows the hazards of the job. No one on my dept would sue a patient/victims family. (I hope not). There are even laws in place that keep a fire dept or individual from a fire dept. from suing a homeowner if injured in a fire. (Unless foul play was in place).
