Remember how I said the following on Friday:
It’s a common thread when a department has problems like this, it’s usually more than just one or two officers but a systemic corruption within the police department.
Well, I must have been clairvoyant because A Girl sent me the following this morning.
Attorneys for former Pittsburgh police Chief Nate Harper say he will plead guilty to charges that he conspired to steal $32,000 in city police funds and failed to file federal tax returns from 2008 to 2011.
Thank god he got busted but it was his behavior that created the corruption and problems within the department. He created a band of criminals under him with protection and silent blessing.
