“FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. – A Farmington Hills police officer was charged with five counts of possession of child sexually abusive material, five counts of using a computer to commit a crime and three counts of illegally recording an individual, according to police.
Matthew Parsons, 48, is alleged to have used personally owned electronic devices to possess child pornography. Police said he had downloaded at least 10 videos of sexually abusive material.
Investigators from the Michigan Attorney General’s office served search warrants at the Farmington Hills Police Station on Wednesday and interviewed Parsons.
After the interview, Parsons was placed on administrative leave. He is a 20-year veteran of the department.”
There are several characteristics that may signal the personality of a child predator. These may include the following:
* Child predators search out children who are vulnerable and easily manipulated.
* A child predator may refuse to take responsibility for his actions.
* A child predator generally needs to control others.
* A child predator may have been abused as a child.
* A child predator often has a great desire for power.
Funny, it almost sounds like they are describing the traits of a cop
Who gets up one morning and says “Hey I want a job with handcuffs and a gun so I can control other people”?
“BRIGHTON – A former Commerce City cop accused of staging his own shooting pleaded guilty to felony and misdemeanor charges Friday, attributing his scheme to mental health problems brought on by years of handling difficult cases.
Kevin J. Lord, 52, stood with his head down as he pleaded guilty to a felony count of tampering with evidence and a misdemeanor charge of false reporting in the wake of him shooting himself last Nov. 8 and reporting that he’d been attacked by a motorist after a traffic stop.
His ballistic vest stopped the bullet – and in the early days of the case was credited repeatedly with saving his life.
Lord’s report sparked a manhunt and led to numerous appeals to the public for information that could help solve the case.
After approving the plea deal, Adams County District Judge Robert Kiesnowski sentenced Lord to three years on probation and ordered him to undergo a mental health evaluation and perform 500 hours of community service. He’ll also be required to undergo any treatment that is recommended.
Lord could have faced up to three years in prison.
The deal with prosecutors led to the dismissal of a more serious felony, a count of attempting to influence a public official.
Lord called the episode the “hardest and most humiliating experience of my life” and apologized to fellow law officers and his family
