Oh, my. I hope this is not true. This makes my stomach turn. Where are our teens safe? Not in church, not with law enforcement, not at school! Is it any wonder our youth have so many problems???

There ought to be a law that a person such as him can be taken out back of the court house and shot, no need to spend money on lawyers that will drag it on just for the money and for their personal job security.

Shouldn't a police officer be held to a higher standard and have double the penalties for such a crime? On paid leave!!! I have to go to work to earn my pay. This guy commits a crime and gets a paid vacation. I know they do this all the time while they investigate, but I sure hope they hurry up and cut off the pay. Then put him in a cell with some people he put in prison. See how much fun he has then.

The simple mentality of how cops really are. They think they can do what ever they want. All dirt bags!

No! But right now there is NO checks and balances on cops. They jump in their cars and do and say what ever the he11 they want. It has to change some how. After a few years of feeling untouchable the ego swells and the trouble starts. It's their mentality it's in their blood it's a way for them to feel like a real man after getting bullied all of their school years. It's like a liberal having a big glass of P-BO kool-aid. A feeling of euphoria comes over them.

It sounds like this guy was acting as a dare officer. They are suppose to fil the kids heads with things like police aggression is nessesary or violent crimes by copos are nessesary. SEx and drugs are the things dare cops are trained to do. make drug addicts out of our youth. It is called job security. He shold have had on his dare patch then sex and drugs would be policy. Remeber 90% of our youtgh learn all about drugs from the dare kingpin.

Who were the officers who worked with this guy? None of them knew anything? Saw anything? Suspected anything? We need some accountability from within the ranks. If they aren't going to hold each other accountable we're all in big trouble being at their mercy.

Supplied teenagers with alcohol and then assaulted them? And we expect them to take allegations of rape seriously? Does it get any worse than this?
