Now we hear of a Suffolk police officer who allegedly stole from some of the poorest people on Long Island, probably because he thought they would be fearful of coming forward ["Cop took cash, 4 say," News, March 7]. Does it get any lower than this?
If this officer is found guilty, I hope he is punished severely for this crime and for tarnishing the work of good cops everywhere. I'm glad the victims found the courage to expose this despicable behavior by a man who swore to uphold the law.
