Criminal Justice Quote: Ex-New York City Cops on the Dole

    More than 100 former New York City workers [72 of them ex-cops] were charged on January 7, 2014 with faking psychological problems for insurance benefits. Prosecutors say the total amount bilked from Social Security disability insurance could reach $400 million, dating back to 1988….

     More than  half of these cases came from those claiming the events of 9/11 left them unfit to work. Prosecutors say the ringleaders coached them on how to act when examined by doctors, like how to fail memory tests and how to apply for benefits.

     The operation was [headed] by ex-cops Joseph Esposito and John Minerva, as well as former FBI Agent Raymond Lavalee and Thomas Hale, a prison consultant.
