Sex, Lies, and videotape
OK, not really, but it caught your attention, didn't it?STUART, Fla. -- A sheriff's deputy in Martin County is accused of dishonoring his badge after he was caught videotaping scantily clad women while he was on patrol.He was supposed to be working, but instead the sheriff's office said on two days in October Munsey was making his own videos.
I've never been a cop, but I can imagine that if I spent my days driving around looking to pull people over for any minor traffic violation, I might start to play with some of the toys that were in the car as well.The sheriff's office confiscated an hour and a half of videotape. Some of it shows Munsey just driving around, but much of the tape shows him focusing on women below the neck.
OK, so that proves that he's got a healthy sex drive.Deputy Munsey showed another deputy that worked with him the videotape and that deputy wanted nothing to do with it and in fact told a supervisor," Atlas said.
And this guy was gay.The sheriff's office fired Munsey, who was a 10-year veteran of the department.
10 year veteran of the police department. Ten years protecting and serving. And he gets fired for videotaping clothed adult women? First of all, why was this a public issue? Could this not have been handled internally? Secondly, he wasn't filming himself having sex with these women while in uniform, inside the squad car.
Come on people! What's the big freakin' deal? Was some form of punishment necessary for misappropriation of police department equipment? Certainly. Was firing the guy and turning the issue into a national news story a fitting way to handle the situation? Absolutely not.
especially considering the fact that the sheriff's office said it has not received any complaints about Munsey's taping or any sexually related complaints
Apparently there isn't any other crime to worry about in Martin County.
