And by the way, there is no"promise". You seem to think that. Show me where you have this promise in writing.
[prom-is], verb, prom·ised, prom·is·ing.
1.a declaration that something will or will not be done, given, etc., by one: unkept political promises.
2.an express assurance on which expectation is to be based:
What you probably have is a civil contract, which are broken all the time, which probably has many clauses in it as to how the pension can be terminated.
But make me out to be a "moron." Show us your contract that shows you will get paid a certain amount and there are no stipulations or termination clauses in it. In the may contracts I have negotiated, I have never seen one without a termination clause.
Silly you. What you promised your kids, and then refuse them, that your issue.
As for my pension, stay tuned. When I retire, I'll let you know whether I'm getting what was promised me, or not.
There are at least two sides to every story. I just heard yours and, indeed, you appear to be the victim. But I can't stop wondering what the other side has to say.
Oh, g-d, if only LEOs can be indemnified from willfully ignoring the stupid!
