Injured DART Officers Take Pay Cut During Recovery

Not to gin up some outrage or anything, but this is outrageous.

Jesse Retana is one of the DART officers who was injured during the July 7 shooting. Today he’s undergoing surgery to get bullet fragments removed from his arm. As the Voice reports, he’ll take a 30 percent pay cut during his recovery. Unlike DPD officers, who are paid their full salaries after getting shot, DART cops are paid through workman’s comp. This, I think we can all agree, is crap. There’s a GoFundMe page where you can throw in a few bucks to help cover the difference for Retana.
