Pittsburgh Cop Charged With Stealing At Popular Florida Theme Park

ORLANDO -- Police in Orlando said a Pittsburgh police officer tried to make off with more than $300 in Harry Potter merchandise from Universal Orlando Resort while vacationing with his family.
Officer Henry Rogowski, 49, was charged Sunday after a gift shop worker allegedly saw Rogowski shoplift two Potter-themed photo albums, bookmarks and a keychain.
When confronted, police said Rogowski admitted he took those items and others without paying because the registers were busy and he didn't feel like waiting. Police also said the man had a gun on the premises.
Rogowski posted $1,000 bail on Monday.
Pittsburgh police Chief Nate Harper said Rogowski, a 17-year veteran, will face internal punishment.
I don't think this is a fair way to "blow off a little steam"...he arrests people for doing the same thing, obviously he doesn't believe in what he does, he just does it because he's told to.
He was probably just blowing off a little steam.
