FTA: "I haven't dated for 20 years," Bass told an investigator.

Some things should just be given a rest.

Classified, no. User restricted, yes.

This really surprises me, though; my friends in the LEO business don't surf the thing for entertainment but it doesn't seem to be that big a deal to use for the occasional curiosity search. The supervisor must have a real stick up his ass. Not that that's bad, just surprising.

Other clerks reported that Bass had joined a telephone dating service and that she would lookup the personal information and photographs of people who responded to her messages.


I'm sorry, but what year is it?


...oh wait, it's Florida.

A buddy of mine got fired for doing basically the same thing. Seems like pretty SOP... get caught searching restricted data for personal use - get fired. No sympathies here.

Except that if it's like California's CLETS, it's federal violation.

Other than that, you're prolly right.

Everything you do in those databases is logged and reviewed. WHY do people not remember that?

It is expressly prohibited to use those databases for personal reasons. Privacy laws, among other things. Abuse of power. All that kind of stuff that people like you usually complain about the police doing. Cops and the civilians who work for police departments are trained not to do this. It gets beaten into their heads multiple times. The system logs all access and who the user is at the time. They know better. And yet, people regularly get fired for doing it anyway.

Then you have Kevin Beary looking up the personal info of people who write critical letters to the editor, gets caught, and still ends up with no issues.

People like me? An odd comment to make, especially when quoting me as saying I found the punitive action surprising.

Typical farking cops.

As usual, self-important jackholes who they think the rules don't apply to them because they are cops. Whether it is shooting a prone 'perp' on a crowded railway platform, laying a beatdown Rodney King style, targetting out-of-state plates with bogus traffic offences, justifying outright murder during paramilitary raids on priests and grandmothers, parking in the no-stopping to pick up some donuts, or tapping classified personal data so they can find a date, it is all a symptom of the same misplaced sense of entitlement.

I hope they get charged with something and thrown in PMITA prison for it. But no doubt an 'internal investigation' has ruled their firings are punishment enough.

Pricks.

Yes. I was a police dispatcher for a while and every single time I had to take a class at the FDLE center, the instructor took time to tell us the consequences of using it for personal use. One of the instructors stopped every 5 or 10 minutes (of a 4 hour course) to repeat that. My department enforced this by comparing the dispatcher's FDLE queries (which were automatically printed in the supervisor's locked office) against the officers' reports for the shifts.

Cleveland cops use the LEADS database to check stuff out for personal use all the time. Nobody rats.

I can almost guarantee this is a bunch of women and one whistle-blew on these 2 because of pure office catty-whompus.

What really happened:

A cop wanted to get married. He was having trouble choosing among three likely candidates. He gives each woman a present of $5,000 and watches to see what they do with the money.

The first does a total makeover. She goes to a fancy beauty salon, gets her hair done, new makeup; buys several new outfits and dresses up very nicely for the man. She tells him that she has done this to be more attractive for him because she loves him so much.

The cop was impressed.

The second goes shopping to buy the man gifts. She gets him a new set of golf clubs, some new gizmos for his computer, and some expensive clothes. As she presents these gifts, she tells him that she has spent all the money on him because she loves him so much.

Again, the cop is impressed.

The third invests the money in the stock market. She earns several times the $5,000.. She gives him back his $5,000 and reinvests the remainder in a joint account. She tells him that she wants to save for their future because she loves him so much.

Obviously, the cop was impressed.

The cop thought for a long time about what each woman had done with the money he'd given her.

Then he married the one with the biggest tits.

Men are like that, you know.

There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

This is illegal? Wife has a friend whose husband works at the penn. and he looks up random people all the time.

Would you date a woman who hasn't dated in over 20 years? Ugh.
 
2009-06-08 02:15:33 PM  
LOL Guma, I thought the exact same thing.
