Regarding the sentencing of former Pittsburgh police chief Nate Harper (“Ex-Chief Harper Given 18-Month Prison Term,” Feb. 26): I’m looking at this as a case of pure discrimination. There have been other police personnel who have broken the law in cases comparable and some worse than that of Nate Harper, yet they were given lighter sentences and in some cases found innocent. Some who were found guilty were able to spend their sentencing under house arrest.

I do believe Mr. Harper should be punished, but everyone knows what jeopardy an ex-police officer faces when he or she has to serve time in jail. How safe is a minimum-security facility? You are still among others who carry a dislike for policemen.
