Improper sense of entitlement

Wow, regarding allegations against retired fire Capt. Jon Wilmot, there is only one word I can use: disgusting.

For a person who probably rakes in more in retirement benefits than most average Californians make annually to steal from the local (cash strapped) fire district is totally disgusting. How about the fact that this person has two homes in Contra Costa, plus six cars? He is either a hoarder or he was paid way too much during his tenure with the fire department, or both.

This sense of entitlement to the fire district's supplies, from exercise equipment to toilet paper and pencils, says much about the character of folks who want to protect their bloated pensions. Greed ... it's disgusting.
