Speaking of poaching, should the penalty be stiffer for police officers who do their poaching while on duty?

From the _Cheboygan Daily Tribune:

_Two Michigan State Troopers who served brief jail sentences and were reassigned after admitting to poaching deer while on duty have lost their jobs, pending an arbitration hearing.

“There has been a recom­mendation for termination, and each will have a hearing as part of the arbitration process,” Detective/Sgt. Christopher M. Luty, vice­president of the Michigan State Police Troopers Associa­tion, confirmed Friday. “Noth­ing is really official until that is complete.”
