"Fireman embezzled to buy Sharks tickets, cops say"
By Henry K. Lee
San Francisco Chronicle
October 29, 2011

Facts (see news article cited directly above):

  • The firefighter, a captain, was arrested for allegedly embezzling more than $63,000 from the firefighters' union and using the funds for San Jose Sharks season tickets and a trip to Disneyland.
  • The firefighter is on probation for a 2009 misdemeanor domestic violence conviction.


  • What makes this alleged embezzlement even more despicable is the fact that California firefighters receive obscene salaries, overtime, benefits, and pensions. 
  • Pure Greed!
