VIDEO: Fla. Cop Picked Up Prostitutes
A Melbourne (Fla.) Police officer has been fired for using his patrol car to pick up prostitutes. Several of the encounters were captured on his dashboard video and nearby surveillance cameras, reports WTSP-TV.
Patrol-car video shows Officer Jose Otero picking up a woman identified as a prostitute. Officers were watching him from unmarked cars at the time.
Two other video clips show Otero talking with prostitutes. In one, the officer is seen exiting his patrol car without a shirt.
Investigators found four prostitutes who admitted having sex with Officer Otero on the job.

We had a dumb a** on our dept doing the same thing a few years back. He was married with kids. He was jamming up the hookers for free sex when a couple of them got tired of his cheap a**. A couple of them went to the station to complain, he was releaved of duty w/pay pending an investigation. IA is tailing him and don't you know, this bone head goes into his division while releaved of duty and hits up one of the hookers, no less while IA is watching him! By the time they were done with him he ended up gettin 96 years! They charged him with "rape under the color of authority".

This really sucks (emphasis added), but at least they caught him.

Everyone should act as though you are under video surveillance at all times, because you are.

It is ok to pick up hookers in your patrol car - but only as long as they are going to jail!! This dumb a$% gets what he deserves. How did he ever pass the psych - and where are his supervisors?
