It's Good to Be a NJ State Trooper

Seven state police troopers are accused of sexually assaulting a female college student and are suspended pending an investigation. The County Prosecutor's Office investigates for seven months but no charges are filed.

The State Police Superintendent says the troopers have been disciplined accordingly, but does not specify the nature of the discipline, and attorneys for the troopers say they've reached an agreement that will allow their clients to return to work.

What are the chances that, had this happened to people engaged in pretty much any other occupation, either in the private or public sector, there would be this much, um, discretion exercised?
