Re “The FBI’s fall guy” (Metro, Feb. 19), Kevin Cullen’s column about John Connolly:

So sad, tragic, and funny that the bosses and middle managers walk away from public corruption scandals with their pensions secure and extramarital affairs hidden.

Here in New York, officer Frank Serpico had to get shot in the face before the mayor and police brass acknowledged that gamblers and drug dealers were paying off cops.
