It has Jackie Chiles written all over it.

sadly the trooper that did body cavity searches on 2 females on the side of a texas highway looking for pot was not charged by a grand jury, so texas DPS has rehired her. Because she was directed by a more senior officer to perform the search, that is sufficient mitigation for the agency to bring her back. Apparently it's not required to know right from wrong, you are all good as long as a superior tells you to do it.

It appears the more senior officer, who had been suspended, has been fired.

Why would anyone allow themselves to be subjected to a body cavity search on the side of the road? It really is amazing how some people will do anything that's asked of them by an authority figure. I'd tell them to go fuck themselves even if it meant I would go to jail, especially knowing I had nothing to hide and would get out of it eventually.

They didn't have a choice. It's stand there or be tazed.

That strategy worked wonders for Rodney King.

Someone else has come forward saying they were 'penetrated' at the same hospital after being pulled over. I bet others have been too but didn't want to tell anyone. Interested to see how the trial goes.

lets not jump to conclusions, these are obviously isolated incidents. I mean, the percentage of people anally violated by this police department has to be pretty low, so that makes everything ok. Lets not pay attention to things like the drug dog they are using isn't certified, the search warrants aren't valid, they are using a nigerian doctor who probably doesn't have any idea of the rules/laws in this country etc...

L.A. Traffic Cops Caught Shopping, Hanging Out At Home While On The Job

Los Angeles traffic officers have been caught slacking on the job while earning taxpayer money.
L.A. Department of Transportation officers manage car flow and enforce traffic laws throughout the city -- a job they say only gets harder. They even complained about their working condition to the City Council last month, CBS2 reports.
But while the officers were complaining, hidden cameras caught some of them going anything but their jobs. According to CBS, officers were seen spending hours at home, shopping and at restaurants during shifts.
"One officer came home numerous times and parked in the alley behind his house during work.
Another officer was seen shopping at Target while on duty. When he left, he wrote a quick ticket on a car parked outside the store and then went to Costco, where he stayed for almost an hour.
A male officer was caught parked on the side of the street for hours at a time, seemingly doing nothing. He then wrote a couple of tickets."
The department is looking into GPS systems so it can keep track of officers. Mayor Eric Garcetti wasn't exactly pleased when he was informed of the investigation.
“This doesn’t just anger me as a mayor, this pisses me off as a taxpayer,” Garcetti told CBS.

That sounds like this video of Miami police:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmFadsymT6s

Miami police officers caught on camera allegedly ignoring 911 calls
The Miami Dade Police Department has fired a sergeant and two officers and suspended three others without pay in what is considered one of the worst incidents of delinquency in the department's history, CBS Miami reports.


The accusations vary against each officer, but they include: failing to respond to emergency calls, pretending to be on calls when they weren't and falsifying police records, according to the station.

The officers-- an entire squad assigned to patrol a large area of Kendall, Fla. -- were followed and caught on surveillance video by Internal Affairs in 2010, but it wasn't until September 2012 that they were ultimately disciplined, the station says.


According to CBS Miami, one of the fired officers, Dario Socarras, is accused of ignoring armed robbery and residential burglary calls so he could meet his girlfriend in a mall parking lot. Socarras was caught on surveillance video on two different occasions kissing and cuddling his girlfriend in a parking lot as other officers were forced to respond to emergency calls for help.

Socarras also allegedly misled a crime victim into believing he was going to fill out a report about stolen items, but instead told dispatchers no crime had occurred. He even gave the victim a phony case number, CBS Miami reports.

Socarras, along with Sgt. Jennifer Gonzalez and Officer Jose Huerta were fired after an internal police panel reviewed their actions.

In total, the internal investigation reported 134 violations of departmental rules and procedures.

Investigators claim Gonzalez went shopping when she should have been working. In one case, surveillance video captured a store clerk helping her load her goods into the squad car. Investigators also allege she would spend hours visiting her parents when she should have been on patrol or supervising other officers in her squad.

According to the station, Huerta was criticized for not immediately responding to a call where a 5-year-old child was locked inside a vehicle. Huerta would allegedly claim to be tied up on a call on several different occasions when in fact he was free to respond.

Perhaps the most egregious incident of all involved all three of the fired officers. According to the station, Socarras was dispatched on an emergency call in which a 5-month-old child was unconscious and in need of medical attention. Socarras reportedly told the dispatcher he was "en route." In reality, he was out drinking coffee with his supervisor, Sgt. Gonzalez, and Officer Huerta.

The other three suspended officers, Jeffrey Price, Fabian Owens, and Ivan Tomas, are also accused of various violations including failing to respond to the scene of an emergency call. All three received suspensions ranging from five to 20 days for their actions, the station reports.

According to CBS Miami, Gonzalez is planning on appealing her firing. Socarras and Huerta are also trying to get their jobs back.

Except these are also the same people that carry firearms and are known to use them at the slightest provocation. I'd feel safer with gang members.

That's fine with me. They can't harass as many citizens if they're at home.

Yeah, it's not a widespread problem like voter fraud.

yep, that's old. Interesting looking back though, before this video incident he shot his ex-wifes new husband in 2008, claiming self defense (that was accepted by the police). He shot 24 rounds-that's means he reloaded during the process. Hmm...

He was arrested after this video for rape..All misunderstandings I'm sure.

Either they have the worst background checks imaginable or they are actively going out and looking for these kinds of creeps to become cops.

And there's more to the story:


"McPherson reportedly followed the vehicle initially before activating his emergency lights. ... Comstock, at one point, is accused of stopping the vehicle and reversing, pushing the trailer into the police car and partially onto its hood, according to police.

Comstock then sped away again, police reported, running a red light and becoming unhitched from the trailer ... and eventually north on Morrill Road – against one-way traffic in the bike and pedestrian lanes, according to police.

Witnesses told police that people were jumping out of the way of the truck, which then jumped the curb onto a grassy area north of the university’s Campanile. McPherson unsuccessfully tried to ram the vehicle to get it to stop, police reported."
