It was reported yesterday that a NJ State Trooper is retiring after he admitted to stealing more than $7,000 worth of gas for his personal vehicles.

The Trooper was suspended in April without pay and retired in May. In addition to retiring, the trooper also gave up accrued vacation, personal and holiday time, his medical benefits were revoked and his pension was reduced from 65 percent to 50 percent of his final salary.

Is this a fair punishment, though? For anyone else, this would have punched a ticket to the local jail cell. But this trooper gets to retire instead.

Take our poll and let us know what you think about the early retirement.
