give me doughnuts: The number of cops claiming disability from 9/11-related injury and illness now higher than the number of cops who were actually at Ground Zero.


This.

"First responders who were at ground zero" now outnumber "people who were at woodstock", although both numbers continue to grow rapidly.

I could be wrong, but I think the construction workers who cleared that site spent more time their than anyone else.  How come I don't hear stories about the construction workers dying like flies from WTC connected illnesses?

The Irresponsible Captain: Oh, there was some effort to help these people out, but it kind of got squashed.

Who Voted Against The 9/11 First Responders Bill?

I think it's pretty sad.



What. The. fark.  Really, especially as there is no national medical.  Mind you, I have the same reaction to vets coming home and having to fight to get care.

maxx2112: Considering how much fark hates cops, I'm surprised the [SPIFFY] tag wasn't used.


It's almost like this this case cops were doing a good thing and the "cop hate" strawman is full of crap.

Also, I heard somewhere that more cops have died as a result of 9/11 illness than died during 9/11. I can't remember where I've heard this before, but I've heard it more than once now so it must be true. I wish someone would submit an article about how more cops have died as a result of 9/11 illness than died during 9/11. That would be a good topic. It might even take more than one thread to fully discuss it.

Which pales in comparison to white collar workers. So?
