Nate Harper, Pittsburgh Police Chief, Steps Down Amid FBI Probe

Source: Associated Press

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Police Chief Nate Harper stepped down on Wednesday at the behest of the city's mayor, who earlier in the day met with federal investigators amid a probe of police business.

Harper's resignation comes a week after the FBI gathered boxes of records from police headquarters and just days after City Controller Michael Lamb announced an audit of the force's special events office.

Mayor Luke Ravenstahl told reporters he spoke with Harper over the phone but did not elaborate on their discussion.

"I'm not going to talk to you about the chief's reaction," he said. "This is a sad day."

2. I think this is going to blow up in the Mayor's face........................

his bodyguards were a few of the Police Officers that were using ATM cards from a shill bank account that was using City money.

As for the Chief, I know him personally and have worked with him in the past, and I have a hard time wrapping my head around these allegations. I'm hoping the corruption surrounding the Chief, is only surrounding him & he was not a part of it. I'm hoping that he is guilty only of mis-management. We shall see. It's not looking good for Nate, but we shall see.

About two years ago, there were a few shootings during football games of kids about 10 to 12 years old, in predominantly African-American communities. The Chief's response (who is also African American) was to publicly announce, that if the community couldn't keep the kids safe, he would and he canceled any future games.
