They Have The Power

So of course they abuse it

FAIRFIELD (CBS13) – Court documents show that Fairfield Police Officers Stephen Ruiz and Jacob Glashoff used company time and equipment to search for women on internet dating sites.
The documents also show that two used the California Law Enforcement Telecommunications System – a statewide police database – to screen the women they liked.
…The court documents allege another Fairfield officer reported the incidents to his superior back in June.
The reporting officer alleged that both Ruiz and Glashoff found women’s profiles had been browsing women on dating websites like Tinder, eHarmony, and while working at the investigations bureau office of the Fairfield Police Department.
…Court documents allege the officers then used a police-issued computer to look up the women they found appealing in a confidential law enforcement database that connects to the DMV and state and federal records.
Court documents go on to say Sgt. Ruiz and Detective Glashoff would perform the searches and have conversations about the dating sites in front of other officers.
The Fairfield Police Department says it cannot comment on the ongoing investigation because of government code. Another law enforcement agency is in charge of the investigation, police say.
If the allegations are found true, the officers could face felony criminal charges.

Let’s see if this actually happens.

I ain’t holding my breath.

    I wonder where, on the scale of important shit that is going on today, these misbehaving Mayberry cops fit?

    Not too high, no doubt, but it is to me sadly emblematic of the endemic corruption and lack of any sense of civic virtue in our government.

    Mr. B., you mean like the Whitehouse sending a delegation of three to represent the POTUS at the funeral of a convenience store robber? Now there’s some civic virtue for you.

    Say hello to a little thing we like to call the “audit trail”, boys. CLETS is logged and monitored six ways from Sunday.
