There has been and always be “perverts” and “sexual predators “who gain employment in occupations that permit them to manifest their sexual appetite. You see this with ( Teachers, Clerical, Coaches,Medical, Counselor and Police Officers). See http://survivorconnections.net/scstats1.html
Today a Broward County Sheriff http://sheriff.org/ was arrested for sexually assaulting illegal immigrants. See http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/broward/sfl-bso-deputy-arrested-sex-abuse,0,1484852.story .
The Miami Herald states ” Investigators said Monday they were preparing to file charges involving seven more male victims, and said there might be even more. The alleged victims range in age from 17 to 30, but all have something in common: They are undocumented immigrants, mostly from El Salvador and Mexico, who speak little English.”
Assuming the facts and affidavit to be true it is atypical of a sexual predator, they seek to exploit victims who are intimidated, afraid, or dependent upon the perpetrator. It also show “premeditation” in that he “selected” and “targeted” only certain men, this is the “choosing the right tomato” only those ripe would be chosen.
Those of us in law enforcement should not be surprised as we already know that many “pimps” exploit the legal status of their victims who they force into prostitution nationally http://www.nytimes.com/1998/04/24/us/group-forced-illegal-aliens-into-prostitution-us-says.html and internationally. See http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2005/nov/02/immigration.ukcrime
This Officer should go to jail as he is an aggressive predator who manipulated the system to gain employment to satisfy his unbridled sexual appetite. The statistics bear out the fact that sexual offenders are four time more likely to be repeat offenders ” recidivist” activity. See http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/crimoff.htm#sex
This Sheriff is a double problem he has embarrassed hardworking gay officers who fight stereotypes that they are “freaks” and law enforcement officers as a whole as he undermines the public faith in police officers.
