CalPERS, the state pension monster, is trying to subvert the will of the governor and public opinion and reverse pension reform. It is expected to approve rules today increasing pensions to 99 new categories of new public employees.
Writes the SacBee editorial board, “Officers could get more if they are physically fit or a good shot. Shouldn’t all cops be fit and shoot straight?
“Officers could get higher pensions if they are assigned to Drug Abuse Resistance Education programs in schools (studies show DARE does not work–MF), regularly enforce laws against drunken driving and drugs, find fugitives, fight gangs, direct traffic or work at the front desks at jails.”
