As a Mississippi officer myself, im deeply disturbed by this. As the deputy chief stated, we work very hard at building a trust in our community and now that trust is tainted. Society in general thinks that we as law enforcement are ''out to get them.'' But, the number one reason we do what we do, is to serve and protect our community. To build a rapport with them. Look, we are called every name in the book, on a daily basis! Im just disturbed that now, they are going to throw child abuser into that list of names.

Mike. Fear not. The only people who will call you names are the ones who break the laws. The law abiding citizens are not that shallow. We still believe that most of you are good guys. But, it is you who will have to weed out the bad ones, and we respect you for that.

Let's not be quicker to judge. We do not know the facts of the case other than the fact that allegations have been brought against the officer AND his girlfriend. We don't know the extent of the child's injuries nor do we know what and how the child was injured.

I think it is premature to jump to conclusions and make this officer out to be a monster. I for one will wait and see how all of this turns out.
