Let him collect his pension based on what he paid, less what the city matched.

Octavello, yes, the federal government will take your retirement if you commit a crime while working for the government. Robbie Freitas was working for the Sheriff's department, a position in which the public expects absolute trust, as they are supposed to be enforcing the law, not breaking it. As such, this employee, who broke that sacred trust, does not deserve his pension. I do however, feel that he should be allowed to collect it until he is found guilty in a court of law. At that point, he should be forced to pay it back. If he's found innocent, then he should continue to collect it. One last item, someone working for Ford is not in the public trust as a sheriff is, so you cannot compare the two. Now, if someone working for Ford committed a crime against Ford, they too would take away his pension and fire him. Jacksonville can't even afford to fix the roads or keep the libraries open, yet they pay outrageous salaries to school board members, etc... There is so much waste in Jacksonville that it's sickening. The new court house alone was so grossly overpriced that someone should be getting charged in it for defrauding the tax payers. So when a person who is supposed to be in a position getting the highest trust from the tax payers and he brakes the law so grossly as this, if he is found to be guilty, he should loose his pension and pay further restitution to the tax payers that he cheated in the first place.

His pension is HIS pension, he earned it. If the guy retired after 30 yrs with GM or Ford, would we expect him to lose his pension if he committed a crime? Would the govt take your 401k if you commit a crime? Come on now....

Curtis, cannot you wait until Robbie has his day in court? Surely, he is due as many rights as the gangbangers he protected from many years.

As long as anyone earns their pension legally I can't justify taking it away as punishment. Of course that money should be counted as income and used to pay any penalties, etc. if convicted of a crime(unless it is part of a bankruptcy filing, etc.).
