Florida officer of the year busted for child porn

“A Florida cop once named “Officer of the Year” was arrested by federal agents for distributing child porn — and uploading the smut on the job, court documents show.

Port St. Lucie Officer Michael Harding was charged Wednesday with sending and receiving child porn after undercover Homeland Security investigators discovered his filth-ridden account on the app Kik messenger, authorities said.

The 27-year-old married father of three posted explicit material to the Kik chatroom #toddlerf**k while stationed in his police vehicle on patrol on the overnight shift beginning on July 23, according to an affidavit.

A Homeland Security Investigator stumbled onto posts Harding made under the name destheabovee showing young girls in sex acts with men, the affidavit said. The account was later linked to Harding’s IP address and cell phone number, investigators said.

A search of Harding’s home found hundreds of child porn photos and videos on a thumb drive, which had been hidden in a gun case in the bedroom, the affidavit said. Another thumb drive showed 23 sexually explicit pictures had been deleted, investigators said.

The thumb drives had images of boys and girls between about pre-school age and prepubescence, investigators said.”

So you wonder what they are doing in their car just sitting in a parking lot

Just paperwork right?

These are stand up guys, regular heroes

Of course they are doing paper work

Just a few bad apples right?

Hmmmm….. Google cop child porn and hit news

I did and was a little surprised by all the results

Look at this one that popped up from the UK

” Fifty police officers across the UK have been arrested as part of a crackdown on suspected paedophiles who pay to access child pornography websites, detectives revealed today.

The officers were among 1,300 people arrested on suspicion of accessing or downloading indecent images of children – some as young as five – from US-based Internet sites.”

That’s a lot of cops getting swept up

But then again think about this:

What kind of person likes to control other people?

Here what pedophiles do:

“One other possible cause is the need to dominate a sexual partner. Since children are smaller and weaker than adults they are more easily dominated. This drive for domination could also be the reason there are more male pedophiles than there are women pedophiles.”

Hmmmm…. seems to be some similarity there

Who gets up in the morning and says “Hey, I want to put a badge and a gun on and order people around. If they don’t listen to me, I will arrest, beat , tase or shoot them”

Maybe it’s not so surprising that so many cops got swept up in the sting
