Obesity is a real problem for policemen of the US state of Florida. The top authorities decided to apply economic sanctions to fat staffers.
Every policeman with excessive weight will be deprived of an annual premium at the rate of $500. The measure will be applied to policemen with excessive weight of more than seven kilogram to the norm.
Staffers, who are very probable candidates to lose their premiums are indignant at the innovation. They say, the measure is extremely hard. Moreover, policemen say that excessive weight causes no effect on efficiency. “An officer can have a large list of detained, he can be the best of the rest, but I do not think that excessive weight is a fair reason to deprive him of a premium”, one of the US policemen says.
Another policeman states, excessive weight is really important for his work. Over the whole period of his service in police the man never chased criminals. His main goal is to knock doors out during police operations.
