Dozens of former cops and firefighters claiming 9/11 trauma were among the 106 arrested for gaming the Social Security disability system to take early retirement and leech off the taxpayers, authorities said.



Former city cops and firefighters used the 2001 terror attacks as an excuse to fund their carefree lifestyles on the taxpayer dime, authorities said Tuesday.

Dozens of the former NYPD and FDNY members who claimed to have suffered stress-related woes from the World Trade Center attacks were among 106 people arrested for a longstanding Social Security disability scam, officials said.

A former Brooklyn cop accused of being part of the crooked crew that soaked taxpayers for $21.5 million showed his contempt with a sick grin and two extended middle fingers.

Glenn Lieberman became the unwitting poster boy for a sprawling Social Security ripoff ring, which includes 71 other retired city cops, eight former firefighters, and three ex-corrections officers.

Even more galling, about half of those retirees disgraced themselves further by allegedly claiming to have suffered stress-related woes from the 9/11 attacks, authorities charged.

That is not only a disgrace to the victims, but to the police/fire departments as well

OMG this is bad... so very bad.

We're talking about a social security scam. A social program that doesn't have enough funds to be paid out to legitimate recipients as it is. A social program that everyone and their dog pays into their entire working lives without knowing whether or not it's still going to be around when it comes to their time to collect !

The American taxpayer should be publicly stoning these bastards in the street.

And then just to put the icing on the cake: They use a horrificly tragic incident like 9-11 as the base setting for their scams ?!



Ugh, I just puked a little in my mouth.

Glad you posted the story, how horrible for those in REAL need!
This is more than just sick & creepy on many levels & so bloody
wrong. And then to be bragging about yourself on social media?
I hope they ALL get what they deserve & then more. Maybe that will
get posted for them as well. Idiots!

Yeah and the little social security check they get each month really ain't squat compared to the amount they paid in over the years

And then you have these imbeciles that don't bat an eye at scamming the system and make millions off a tragedy
That is low down and dirty
