I saw a cop using food stamps

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I was at the grocery store today, and I saw a police officer using food stamps. (He was not in uniform, but I know he is a cop).

How is it, that someone that risks his/her life everyday at their job paid so poorly that they qualify for food stamps? There is something seriously wrong with that.

That is sad. I don't know where people get this idea that cops make a good living when they honestly don't. The larger town next to mine has a huge police force. A friend from high school wound up being a cop. He took a second job because he just doesn't make enough.

Where is that?

Quoting Anonymous:
Maybe where you live. Where I am from, they get paid just over 10 dollars an hour.



Quoting slb235:

He probably earns $50-70k annually.

I don't think he's paid poorly at all.

It really is sad. They should be making double what they do, with everything they have to deal with and putting their lives on the line :(

These days you'd be surprised who qualifies for and uses food stamps. My husband is military and we need them. The pay is not all that great and alot of the things they use to get for free no long exists. You have ppl who work for the county getting food stamps. Sad.

He might have been buying food for the local
shelter or church pantry. I worked at Kmart in high school and a lot of organizations had the food stamp card just for things like this. Women's shelter too. Anything like that. They probably weren't for him.
