Police retirement

EDITOR: Santa Rosa Police Detective Bryan Reynolds "got his man," according to your front-page story ("A cop who got his man," Friday). He also got his retirement, at age 53. That isn't criminal, but it should be. We can keep our noses to the grindstone until 65 or later so our taxes can cover his Caribbean cruises while the county lays off teachers and the roads go to ruin.
