I wouldn't call him "long time". he was for the 20 years which was just the minimum for retirement.
Well of course! That's all a law enforcement job in this area is anyway, an excuse to hide behind a badge and rob taxpayers in lots of ways while earing a retirement. Work for 20 years then go on pension for another 40 isn't NYS great? Stan doesn't need to worry he'll still get his pension while he's on probation, the district attorney in oneida is a scumbag so they'll cut him a deal like they did that alcoholic DWI fiend Sullivan. Hell maybe Stan can go get a job at THAT PD in Fort Plain they seem to have no problem hiring ex cons for policework!
