    He retired a few days later. They should cut his pension. I would if I ruled the world. Hell I’d take his pension from him completely. Vote for me.

  2. JeffS says:

    Frankly, it sounds like he was planning retirement, and was unwilling to enter any sort of dangerous situation.

    So, not only is he a s**thead, he’s an effing cowardly goldbrick.

    Short timer syndrome. Cut the hell out of his pension.

    Wow, lately there are an awful lot of assholes walking around unattached to the rest of a person. Can we get the Center for Disease Control on this?

    Dang. It smells a little of sensationalism, but if true. . . WTH, dude? Responding is optional in your job!?

    I do not readily accept that he opted to not attend an emergency because of a difference of political philosophy with ONE of the possible victims.

    I’d be looking at Shell-Shock or somesuch.
