Video: Ohio Sheriff Resigns In 'Kissing Cop' Probe

VIDEO: Ohio's 'Kissing Cop' Kisses Again

An Ohio sheriff has resigned following allegations that he misused agency funds during a training trip in which he arranged a rendezvous with a subordinate who became known as "the kissing cop."

Delaware County (Ohio) Sheriff Walter L. Davis III allegedly spent part of the $1,331.55 for meals on Janine Senanayake during the trip to the FBI Academy in Virginia in August, reports the Columbus Dispatch.

Senanayake, a Delaware County deputy, was formerly known as Janine England, when a video of her kissing her former chief went viral. The Bureau of Criminal Identification is again investigating Senanayake, reports the Canton Repository.

Senanayake filed a gender discrimination lawsuit against Perry Township after she was fired for kissing Chief Timothy Escola in 2009 while the two transported a prisoner from Cincinnati, reports WIOI 19 Action News. The incident was captured on the cruiser's dash-cam.

Remember- a badge can get you women, but a woman can get your badge! Obviously her reputation did not precede her. I guess she'll shoot for a Commissioner next to complete the hat trick of agency heads.

I don't know what this Chief was like in the rest of his career, and I don't mean to kick him while he's down, but...

A little stupid goes a long way. Especially on video.

As a single person, I taught at a college for 35 years. I dated the coeds, but NEVER while they took classes with me. I waited until the courses ended. It paid off in more ways than one. I witnessed colleagues of mine getting fired on the spot for charges brought up by disgruntled coeds reporting to the college President. In each case, it was a female currently in class; the relationship went south; Voila! For some people, sexual arousal short circuits connections to the Executive Manager (frontal cortex) and action follows the Limbic System (animal brain). This analogy pertains to LEO's most assuredly.

This Sheriff is a former Sgt from the prestigious Ohio State Highway Patrol. Their ethics are above reproach, which it appears he has thrown to the way side when he took the top cop in the county job. This is beyond ridiculous and not to mention this woman. The Equal Opportunities folks in Ohio found that her being fired from Perry Twp was wrong, so she is suing them as is the inmate who was in the back of the cruiser when her and the chief did her thing. Appears she went from "Eagle's to Stars" on the collar of her men as she hopped along as a badge bunny. This is 100% his fault for what he did, but I have to say she thinks that being pragmatic makes her more than worthless whore. In the end 2 Law Enforcement officers who swore to be above this situation, succumbed to the want's of this "hoooker" as she should really be called.

Ok, this is the second time this story has appeared here and still commenters seem to feel that the newbie cop should have been more disciplined than her more experienced bosses. If she is a whore, what are they? She got fired. Did they also get fired for the same behavior? Didn't they have the greater responsibility? Shouldn't they bear the greater burden? Why is she their scapegoat? Is she supposed to be in the wrong because she is a lower rank or just because she is a woman? This all sounds a bit hypocritical to me?
