Officer Who Pensioned Because He Couldn't Hold Gun Under Fire for Still Shooting at Range

This piece raises some interesting questions about our disability pension system.


From the Star Ledger:

A former New Jersey Transit police officer was able to retire with a full pension because doctors said he couldn't hold a gun after the officer inadvertently stapled his finger.

Yet Christopher Onesti still makes leisurely trips to a local shooting range, where he has no trouble discharging a high-powered weapon. That's what an investigation by New Jersey Watchdog uncovered.

Onesti, who lives in suburban Philadelphia, doesn't just get an "ordinary disability" pension — instead he receives a better-paying "accidental disability" pension that public records indicate pays him $45,936.24 a year tax-free.

It's estimated Onesti will be paid about $2 million from the pension fund if he lives until 80, the report said.
