There are good cops, and there are bad cops. And then there are cops like Herbert Eugene Miller who make it hard for good cops by betraying the public trust. Not that he is known for being overly aggressive as an officer of the law. But in a world where the first line of public trust rests with officers sworn to uphold the law while serving and protecting communities. I mean if we can’t trust the cops, who can we?

The idea of a police officer surfing the internet and searching for child pornography while on patrol, leaves a lot to be desired. The irony of the following story is that I was just having a conversation with my five-year-old daughter about the role of police officers in our community. And then lo’ and behold I come across the following story from the very state where I reside.

This from The Smoking Gun:

A Tennessee law enforcement officer is facing child pornography charges after investigators discovered the man was using the computer in his police cruiser to search for lewd pictures of young girls.

According to a criminal complaint filed yesterday in U. S. District Court, a Greeneville Police Department officer discovered that the search history of the web browser for the computer in the patrol car he was assigned had been used to search for illicit images.

A forensic review of the computer hard drive turned up “image searches utilizing key words ‘fifth grade girls,’ ‘naked middle school girls,’ ‘young puffy nipples,’ and ‘hot high school girls naked’” revealing “thousands of pornographic images” on the computer’s hard drive and–of those–“eighty images of child pornography.”

Tennessee-Cop-Herbert-Eugene-Miller-Child-PornographyInvestigators were able to link the searches to Herbert Eugene Miller, an auxiliary officer with the Greeneville Police Department, who was assigned the patrol car on July 27 at the time the browser searches took place. According to FBI Agent Bianca Pearson, Miller, 44, worked an overnight shift–taking a break from his web surfing for a half hour when the part-time cop, along with two other officers in separate cars, responded to a call that had come into dispatch at 1:40 AM.

Miller, pictured in the above mug shot, was charged with two felony counts of receiving and possessing of child pornography. He was arrested yesterday and appeared before a magistrate judge who ordered him held in custody pending a federal court hearing Wednesday in Greeneville, a town 70 miles east of Knoxville.

I don’t know if you’d agree with me. But, when it comes to trust preachers, police, and politicians aren’t at the top of the list. Why? Because abso;ute power corrupts absolutely. Am I wrong?

    Anything to divert our attention from all the crimes blacks commit. They never hold themselves responsible for their failures. Meanwhile, racist black on white crime is escalating all over the country.
