I developed a diabetes problem which ended up as a pancreatic transplant. My last job was as a Deputy in RI County, Illinois. The Sheriff at the time was mad at me personally, because I allowed one of his aponents to put a political sign in our yard. Well to sum this up, my doctors advised me that I should take a desk job because a blow to my abdomen could cause the loss of the transplant. Well I formally asked the Sheriff for such a job, and his reply was that I was disloyal to him and there are no desk jobs available, so I was subsequently terminated. I went to the FOP union, and I was told that since this was not a contractual situation there was nothing they would do for me. So screw the unions and politics that is based on ass kissing. PERIOD
