Completely Absurd

I'm guessing we all remember the Jordan Miles case, right? He's the CAPA honors student who was brutally beaten by three Pittsburgh police officers nearly a year ago. The officers were placed on paid administrative leave and are still on paid administrative leave with overtime.

The Pittsburgh City Paper estimates, "by year's end the officers will collectively have earned $233,882 while on paid leave."

Over a quarter of a million dollars...SAY WHAT?

Read it and weep here.

Maria, You don't understand.
The purpose of the "internal investigation" is not determine what happened but to exonerate the Officers.
It gives the Police an excuse not to comment on the beating because it is under investigation.

When the public's attention moves on to something else, the "internal investigation" will quietly determine that the the officers followed proper procedure.
By keeping the public's attention on the case, Jordan Miles and his supporters are prolonging the "internal investigation".
Or am I being Too cynical?

I'm sorry, but in what world do you get OT when you are on leave? How does that work?
