Sorry.  I didn't post the shark video for that exact reason, but the smug look on the guy's face in the photo riled me up to the point where I thought it'd add weight to the post.  Won't happen again.

 

EDIT: The picture is down.

One of the officers who responded to the Orlando massacre now suffers from PTSD, and he's losing his job over it:

One of the first police officers who responded to the Pulse nightclub shooting in June 2016 and now suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder is being dismissed from Eatonville’s Police Department.

 

The Town Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to pay Cpl. Omar Delgado about $1,200 before taxes in accrued sick time. The agenda item confirmed that his last day of employment is Dec. 31.

 

Delgado was lauded as a hero at Pulse for saving Angel Colon, who had been shot several times as gunfire erupted inside the nightclub June 12, 2016.

 

Delgado said he returned to patrol duty for a few months after the massacre that left 49 dead and at least 68 injured, but he had to stop. He still doesn’t like going to restaurants and bars.

 

“Too many people,” he said. “God forbid, something happens — I don’t know if I’d be able to react.”

 

For the past eight months, Delgado has worked a desk job, answering phones and doing light tasks. He said this week all of that changed when he was told Monday that his last day on the job would be at the end of the month.

 

He was six months away from from being able to collect 64% of his salary with benefits for life:

An additional six months of employment — he has worked for the department for 9½ years — would have allowed him to become vested in the pension system and collect 64 percent of his salary with benefits for life. Delgado makes $38,500 annually, Town Clerk Cathy Williams said.

 

As it stands now, he will only receive 42 percent of his salary starting when he’s 55 years old. He’s 45 now.

 

Give the guy his damn benefits.
