Porn on a Squad Car Computer Means You Failed the Test (10/19/10)

Last week a police officer was fired for keeping and viewing pornography on the computer in his squad car.  My guess is he was an otherwise good guy who simply made a mistake…maybe more than one.  I support Chief White in the termination of this officer. 

I am all about the police.  I support them 100%.  They have a difficult and sometimes very dangerous job.  When most of us see trouble we try to remove ourselves from it, while the men and women who wear the badges head right toward it.  That's unnatural but I am grateful they are willing to do that. 

With that said, I expect exemplary behavior from the police.  I expect them to be honest.  I expect them to distribute justice fairly regardless of race or economic status.  I expect them to drive the speed limit and obey traffic laws when they are not answering an emergency call.  And I expect them to be a good example not only for kids but for grown ups as well.  Keeping porn on a squad car computer means you failed the test. 

Putting on that uniform should be an honor and a privilege.  It also means you will and should be held to a higher standard.  When you can't do that, you have lost the privilege of being a cop. 

Do you agree or not?  Call us and let us know. 

I'm Bill Lamb, and that's my…Point of View.
