CalPERS: Police live longest!

CalPERS had previously revealed data showing that police and fire officials have same life expectancy as miscellaneous government workers — data that debunks the old public safety canard that police and fire deserve large pensions because they die shortly after retirement. This week, CalPERS will release a report that breaks down the categories and finds that of all the public employees, police live the longest, followed by firefighters. Yet police and fire still use this dishonest argument. It’s time to retire that one.
