Regarding the news story “Pension board takes former Chief Harper's pension away” : Sad story. Former Pittsburgh Police Chief Nate Harper, who pleaded guilty to conspiring to steal money from a federally funded program and four counts of failing to file income taxes, has paid a huge price.

Forfeiture of his pension and loss of reputation are sufficient punishment. He should be given probation at his sentencing hearing.
