Submission + - Retired New York police, firefighters indicted in vast 9/11 fraud scheme (csmonitor.com) 1

Taco Cowboy writes: 106 ex-firemen / ex-cops were rounded up and arrested Tuesday morning as part of a massive investigation into disability fraud in the New York City area, authorities said Tuesday.

Among them, a motorcycle daredevil, a black-belt karate teacher and deep sea fisherman.
