Regardless of whether or not charges are filed, the Auburn Police Department will conduct its own investigation of the officers.

Here's a bold prediction: nothing will happen to this guy. Except for his paid vacation, of course.

Holding my judgement until there's more information, but there's this little gem in the article.

FTFA: "He asked if I had something to drink, I said I had a glass of wine earlier at the Muckleshoot. I'm pregnant and can't drink," she said.

 Something tells me that if she's drank once during her pregnancy, she's done it plenty of other times.

FTFA: Thompson's fiance said she's been stressed out and depressed ever since the incident and she miscarried last week.

Maybe, and this is JUST an idea here, it's not a good idea to smoke pot and drink while you're pregnant. It tends to do bad things to anything growing in your womb, lady.

Based on the history of law enforcement, assuming cops are guilty of misconduct is the safest bet.

Here's a bold prediction: thanks to guys almost exactly like CruiserTwelve, there is absolutely no way we'll ever know if he was actually guilty.  Whether he was or not, the first bold prediction of the thread will be the correct one.

Why I no longer give cops the benefit of the doubt.

1. "Technical difficulties" with the dash cam which would prove the cop acted inappropriately happens far too often to be considered reasonable.
2. Officials refusing to investigate cases of misconduct until a third party video shows up.
3. Stop and Frisk
4. Misrepresenting Terry stops as free reign to do what they please when the courts meant it as a limit on when they could search.
5. The "blue line" that protects bad cops.
6. "World's biggest gang" attitude.
7. Secret hearing for misconduct that prevents the public from seeing what's really going on.

Citation needed. I'm kinda willing to go along with no smoking pot, but vaporizing might be ok. But really you are going to say a single glass of wine a day is bad for your baby? Because that has been disproven. Now I'm not talking about a fishbowl full of sangria, but an honest single glass of wine, especially with food, won't hurt anyone.

There is nothing wrong with an occasional glass of wine.

Any specific reason you are claiming she was smoking pot?

Or all the articles about incidents that were not reported due to intimidation, or, or, or..........

We could go on all day like this. The fact is that it does happen to a degree that it is not a rare event. I know there are a lot of great cops out there. I just wish they would also step up and police their own.

Too often the Blue Wall of Silence has assisted in allowing these incidents to continue. And not just incidents of sexual misconduct either.

Cruiser twelve thinks police are more honest than the average joe.

Despite overwhelming video evidence to the contrary and complete lack of police turning each other in for things like excessive force.
 
2013-02-10 06:56:46 AM  
It just occurred to me: we shouldn't assume the officers are male. That's sexist. (And not as hot.)

For that matter, "an officer groping a woman" could describe a female officer fondling herself. And there's nothing wrong with that, is there?

Dont Talk to Police - (youtube)
Uploaded on Jun 21, 2008
Length - 48:40
A law school professor and former criminal defense attorney tells you why you should never agree to be interviewed by the police.

It is pretty long, but well done. And it is not some "I hate the cops" video at all, but a sober explanation as to why talking to police is not always the best choice without representation present. That is the first half.

The second half (aruond 27:00 through 48:40) is a presentation by a police officer from the VA Beach PD as a counter.

Of course, it's also heart-warming to know that the the words "I smell pot" automatically trump the 4th Amendment.

Once again, any reason you are not only assuming the police officer is telling the truth (smelled pot) and the pregnant women must have smoked it? Is anybody who calls out a police officer for breaking the law a druggie?

It's like a horror movie when dealing with police, there was a sort of points system.

She clearly wasn't a virgin.
She was drinking when pregnant, negative points.
Alleged drug activity makes her more unsavory.
Prior criminal activity wasn't present, so she isn't being dismissed.
Clearly she wasn't a felon with neck tattoos, or the cop could have anally raped her over the hood of the police car and it would have been her fault.

I'm curious how far along the woman was... It makes a big difference if she was early first trimester and she wasn't showing.  Then the story becomes cop stops and frisks DUI suspect, rather than "gropes pregnant woman".

Either way though, dude shouldn't be in her pants or bra; call dispatch and get a female office.

HindiDiscoMonster: I would love to hear your opinion on good officers not turning in corrupt ones, and how that doesn't make them just as corrupt since you have never addressed this issue to my knowledge.


That's a classic "Are you still beating your wife?" question. You're assuming that police corruption exists, which I have never denied, and you're assuming that corrupt cops conduct their bad behavior in the presence of good cops.

The truth is, corrupt cops are like criminals. They conceal their behavior so as not to get caught. Let's assume the cop in this story did what he is accused of doing. Do you think he would have behaved that way in the presence of other cops? Of course not.

So my response is this: Corruption exists in police work just as it exists in any other occupation. Almost all corrupt cops eventually make a mistake and get caught, and a majority of them are caught because good cops turn them in.

I'll repeat what I've said a number of times in the past: Bad cops generally don't last very long in police work. They get fired or they get tired of constantly being under the microscope. A bad cop, however, can cause a lot of bad publicity in the short time they remain in uniform.  Good cops rarely get media attention while bad cops get more attention than they deserve.
