I see no problem with this
 
2012-08-26 04:10:10 PM
It's a fair cop.
 
2012-08-26 04:10:17 PM
It's his free time, and it's not against the law. He did not sign away his soul to your god. Fark off.
 
2012-08-26 04:10:38 PM
From the samples, looks like its intended to be mostly artsy, not so tartsy. I have no problem with this.

He certainly has the sunken "I watch porn all the time" eyes.

THIS.

I especially like the naked ladies.
 
2012-08-26 04:11:50 PM
asinine? I wish I was that guy, minus the cop part.
 
2012-08-26 04:12:08 PM
I thought this was going to be creepy voyeur crap but the women apparently volunteered for the pictures. Fine by me. He shouldn't be punished.

Oh for farks sake.

All the shiat that you read about cops, and they are going to suspend him for taking cheesy fantasy photographs?
 
2012-08-26 04:13:32 PM
Mostly these remind me of "art" that you find on the stall walls in junior high....

Good for him though, he has a hobby that makes him happy.
 
2012-08-26 04:13:33 PM
as long as the girls are at least 18 and consenting to model there is not a thing in the world wrong with this. it's no different than what thousands of other photographers do every day.
 
2012-08-26 04:14:39 PM
Those photos are terrible. I have trouble believing he's been photographing for 20 years. I mean, those photos are really really bad.

wow. Just awful.

Dungeons and Dragons is satanic!

BURN HIM!
 
Ehh
2012-08-26 04:15:39 PM
I didn't know there was a law against cops practicing their chosen form of cheesy self-expression.
 
2012-08-26 04:16:11 PM
Is it done on his own time? Is he using police assets to photograph? Are the models consenting? Are they of legal age? If the answers are yes, no, yes, yes, then what's the problem?
 
2012-08-26 04:16:26 PM
His time and his hobby. If he's not doing anything illegal, it's his business and no one else's. Leave him alone.
 
2012-08-26 04:17:09 PM

tankjr: wow. Just awful.


Easy there, Studman...F stop too sharp for you?

/I actually kind of agree
 
2012-08-26 04:17:18 PM
He was suspended for trespassing in a motel, not for taking pictures there. Unless I missed something? Truth be told, I was mainly looking at boobies.

Unless he used police resources in these shoots, or did it while on duty, the city doesn't have a third leg to stand on.

Guys, we have to remember that when becoming a police officer you are also by default, becoming a role model for your community.

This is why I tase and beat my neighbors for no reason.

yeah, geez, it's not like he shot 9 bystanders while apprehending a suspect...
 
2012-08-26 04:21:51 PM
As long as he's not pulling women over and saying "I'll forget about this if you pose as a mermaid for me", I don't give a damn. Who gives a shiat.

There are cops who do far worse things to bring dishonor to the department that not only do not get suspended, they have their union and their commanders actively covering for them.

Exactly, there are far worse stories about police officer's off duty or even on duty activities that are far worse than this. They are of age, consenting women, move on.
 
2012-08-26 04:23:35 PM
I think we all need some more samples of his work to really judge this with an open mind.

He's a San Fran cop. I guess they would prefer if he was taking pictures of naked guys?

Exactly. As long this doesn't interfere with his duties as a police officer,what's the big deal?

Most police departments have policies about what officers can do while they are off the clock. It's almost as though their actions on or off the clock can reflect poorly on the department and the city they work for.

/ I'm not saying he shouldn't be photographing girls that want to be vampires; what I am saying is he should have cleared it with his captain before he did it

You missed something. He was suspended because his "sideline work violated the mission of the SFPD."

He was suspended for the same thing in 2009. The alleged trespassing of an abandoned hotel just spurred an investigation to see if he was still at it.

People, people, people.

SAN FRANCISCO, get it?

If he was photographing naked men, he'd be fine. Amirite? Amirite?

/no, i'm wrong.

Damn you, skwerl!

(shaking tiny fist)
 
2012-08-26 04:29:44 PM
So if I understand things correctly, if you are a cop, beating and shooting innocent civilians will get you paid administrative leave, but if you are photographing nude and scantily clad women off the clock you get fired.
 
2012-08-26 04:30:02 PM
Hansen's photographs would undoubtedly raise eyebrows - even a few heartbeats - if passed round the police station.

Author has never actually met a real cop has he?

I support the cop/photog guy here, completely.

I'm sure that's a conversation that would go over well

Hey Cap, is alright if I take pictures of naked women in my free time?

I kinda gotta agree here. I wouldn't go so far as terrible (although some of those low-light shots in his gallery.. dude, tripod, use it), more uninspired. And he keeps cutting off hands and feet from the frame, that's Composition 101, man.

As many others have said, if he's not using police resources, and the models are all consenting and 18+, there is no scandal here.

/the fire ones are kinda cool, I might try to play with that theme.

Newsflash:

Coworkers can be dicks who feel the need to make work complaints when they learn about your free time hobbies because they are dicks.

I have had three jobs where I have had coworkers complain about me to supervisors because of stuff that I have done outside of work. One company was ran my Mormons who took the complaint from a coworker (male) about my weekend of premarital sex very seriously (It wasn't that I was having premarital sex, it was that I was in my car with the windows rolled down on my cell phone talking about it with my friend and a coworker over heard it and said that they were offended). One coworker (male) said that they didn't feel comfortable working with me after I said that I'd rather have sex with a passable transgender than go six months without sex. It wasn't the sexual content of the statement, it was the pro-gay statement that he objected to. And the third, well, that was an MLM and boss lady just objected to any hobby that didn't make my life or business any better (and sleeping more than five hours a night). She would hear about what I did away from the office and ask "How is that making your life or business any better?"

Don't Troll Me Bro!: Is it done on his own time? Is he using police assets to photograph? Are the models consenting? Are they of legal age? If the answers are yes, no, yes, yes, then what's the problem?


One angle is that he was shooting pictures in a location that was considered trespassing. When confronted, he mentioned that he was an SFPD officer, which makes it appear as if he's trying to use his authority as a policeman to gain access to certain places, which would certainly be an abuse of his powers. That said I'm not a lawyer and I don't know what the different rules are pertaining to trespassing, and for that matter how SFPD normally disciplines their officers for various trespasses (pardon the pun).

He's a cop. Their reality is quite different from a normal person.

I've got a kind of "back-up-a-step" question: why would this reflect poorly on the police department?
