Former Mesa Cop indicted

A former Mesa Police officer has been indicted on several counts of sexual conduct with a minor (Tribune version). I am not going to go into any of the details of the allegations, but the important thing is that this guy was on the Mesa Police Department for a little over 3 years from July 2005 to September 2008.

He recently quit the force, not due to any sexual allegations, but rather some discipline and work problems. However, in light of some of the recent events, the Mesa PD would be wise to look back and see if there are any other misdeeds that he may have been hiding.

Also, this is a good reminder that no one is above the law. Its also a great reminder to teach our children stranger danger and talk to them about appropriate physical and sexual conduct. Children are usually taught to listen to authority, but its important that they know that even respecting that comes with limits.
