Letter: A 'rotten egg' in policing job

The Suffolk County police officer accused of targeting and robbing Latinos is just another example of a rotten egg in public service ["Sting catches cop," News, Feb. 1].

Was he not satisfied with a salary of close to $150,000? This is most likely more than victims of such theft could ever hope to make.

During his 25-year "career," how long did he allegedly do this? And, of course, no matter the outcome of this investigation, he will collect a hefty pension for his "public service."

Such crimes are despicable, hateful and ignorant.
