Convicted state workers... can get their retirement

The Hearld lets us know about the proposed changes in the State's retirement policy regarding convicted state workers. It appears that our own Chris Walsh has sided with the more liberal leaning policy change to allow people like Tom Finneran to get his pension from the state, even though he was found guilty of crimes against the people he represented. 
There are a few good changes, but to reward bad behavior in state workers, in my opinion sends a message of tolerance.

Are you kidding me? We are cutting funding for health care and feeding the hungry, but we are allowing criminals to collect pensions on our tax dollars??? WTF??? If the donated to their pension, they should get back exactly what they put in, and not another dime. What are these idiots thinking?

If they don't get their pension, where would the money that would have gone to them go instead?

The issue that Chris brings up is that families of the convicted shouldn't suffer from the mistakes made by the state worker. And maybe that's true, but those who have gotten caught stuffing money in their bra's have reaped financial benefits.

I think that money would just stay in the retirement fund somewhere in the state coffers.

I don't know about this. I just think it is wrong to pay convicted felons on the taxpayers dollar.
