"The Tampa Police and Firefighters Pension fund is a taxpayer supported retirement program. WFTS discovered Tampa's fund is extremely generous in granting disability retirements compared with other cities. The investigation found one supposedly disabled police pensioner running around a little league field and working as a self defense instructor. Disability pensioners were also found to have never almost never been re-examined by doctors. Yet the standards for receiving these pensions did not always seem fair. WFTS found a quadriplegic former cop who was shot in the line of duty but excluded from a disability pension. "
