A 50-state look at officer decertification for sex incidents

An Associated Press investigation into sexual misconduct by law enforcement officers in the U.S. identified some 1,000 in six years who lost their licenses for sexual assault or other sex offenses or misconduct, including possession of child pornography, voyeurism and sex on duty. The findings are based on an analysis of state records for an administrative process called decertification, but the AP found that policies regarding decertification vary widely from state to state. Forty-one states provided information, three did not, and six states and the District of Columbia said they did not decertify officers for misconduct. Full Article

    This article is masked off with a big block-out square.
    I wouldn’t wish sex offense prosecution on anyone, cops included. Especially due to the “no contact” parole condition with the offenders own (non-victim) kids. Kids are wrestling with thinking “my mom/dad did something so terrible, I’m not allowed to see her/him for 3-5-10+ years.” What are they trying to achieve with that condition? Are they trying to “make” the next batch of addicts with abandonment issues?

    The Cato Institute conducted and in-depth study of police officer misconduct and according to their numbers the biggest threat to our kids are police officers, not registered citizens. Google it, run the numbers and wonder why this isn’t publicized.

    I just came across this article that is related to this.

    Registered citizens are not the threat the public wants to believe. It’s those with a badge. Perhaps the scariest part is this:

    The probe at once represents both the most complete examination of such wrongdoing and a sure undercount of the problem, limited by a patchwork of state laws. California and New York, for example, had no records because they have no statewide system for revoking the licenses of officers who commit misconduct.

    I would imagine, then, there are far more cases of sexual misconduct in California, yet we don’t know about it because of their blue wall of silence, thus putting the public at risk. Lets not forget the officer in the Bay Area downloading women’s nude photos from their cellphones and sending them out to other officers. Quick news bite, but nothing has been said since. Must be nice to be an above the law police officer.
