Harper’s pension

I had been a fan of former Pittsburgh police chief Nate Harper and was sorry to see him fall. But his attorney’s attempt to save his pension was just ridiculous (“Harper Appeals Pension Forfeiture,” Dec. 18). Attorney Samuel Stretton implied that only charges spelled out in the pension forfeiture act apply, as if Mr. Harper doesn’t know a crime when he commits one! And that benefits should only be lost in “the time during which the misconduct took place.” So, only commit a crime after you are vested.

Mr. Harper has sullied the reputation of law enforcement. Mr. Stretton has only added to that of lawyers.
