A drunk police officer who plead guilty to menacing for pulling a gun on a bartender will be allowed to keep his job and retire with a pension thanks to a favorable ruling by a Nassau County, Long Island judge.

District Court Judge Rhonda Fischer sentenced Richard Hefferon, a 20-year veteran police officer, to only 150 hours of community service and a $500 fine.

From CBS New York:
“That night, he made a mistake. He made a profoundly bad mistake … ,” defense attorney Robert McDonald told CBS 2′s Jennifer McLogan. “The court and the DA’s office have both realized that the measure of this man is more than just that one mistake.”

2014 will mark Hefferon’s 20th year as a cop, making him eligible to retire with half pay and full benefits.

“And now he’s going to get out with a pension, and we’re all going to pay for this,” Ball [the victim] said. “If it was anybody else, they’d throw the book at him.”
Because it's a police officer entrusted to uphold the law the charges should be even more severe, instead he gets off easy because his fellow parasite in the ruling class gave him a second chance. Sadly, many officers just like this one given "second chances" end up murdering someone.
