Two years after he shot an unarmed man and was fired, former police officer Philip “Mitch” Brailsford was rehired by the City of Mesa in order to obtain a special pension. Now, Brailsford is considered medically retired, not fired, according to a Mesa city spokesman.

Brailsford pulled the trigger in the January 2016 police shooting of Daniel Shaver. Officers responded to a La Quinta hotel after they received a call about a man with a rifle pointed out a window. Shaver did have a pellet gun, which he used for work, in his room. However, he was unarmed during an exchange with officers in the hallway.
whomever approved the deal needs to be fired.

Eliminate pensions altogether. Far too many unqualified or corrupt teachers, police, and government workers hanging around just to collect pension. There are also cases where people collect more money from pension than they did while working. And I'm sure that many workers, especially teachers, would prefer to have higher salaries upfront because they need the money now.

Unions will not allow it.

Agreed they can save for retirement like everyone else.
