Cop quits after strip club visit with ‘Bridget the Midget’
Boston Herald ^ | 7/20/10 | Dave Wedge

Posted on 07/20/2010 7:47:50 AM PDT by raccoonradio

A Stoughton cop has resigned after hitting a strip joint on duty to try and meet "the world’s smallest porn star," putting an unapproved laser scope on his gun and lying to investigators, the town’s police chief told the Herald today.

Officer Richard P. Bennett, 28, has stepped down after five officers reported he left his patrol to go to Alex’s gentleman’s club to meet "Bridget the Midget," a 3-foot, 9-inch tall porn star, Stoughton Police Chief Paul Shastany said.

Bennett, who was honored by the department in June for his work in helping catch an accused killer, also installed a laser sight on his department-issued handgun and then lied to investigators, the chief said.

"He modified his weapon without permission," Shastany said. "And when he was interviewed, was untruthful. If an officer is untruthful, you do not have a place in this organization."

Of the strip club visit, Shastany said: "He went there and left his beat and wanted to meet this person."

"This person" was Bridget Powers, a 29-year-old adult film star who performed at Alex’s in June. Powers, known as Bridget the Midget, has been a guest on

The Howard Stern Show and has appeared in several pornographic films, as well as some mainstream movies, including "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" and "8 mm." Shastany said Bennett "resigned because he knew he would be terminated." A valid phone number for Bennett could not be found this morning.

The chief lauded officers who reported the alleged violations. The suburban department has been wracked by a widespread corruption scandal that led to the downfall of the previous chief.

"Officers in the department have been beat up and maligned by the actions of a few," Shastany said. "Officers, no less than five, reported this. It’s an embarassment and an affront to their efforts to rebuild this department. I applaud them and this is an example where officers are working hard to hold themselves accountable and are not going to tolerate any wrongdoing."

"The suburban department has been wracked by a widespread corruption scandal that led to the downfall of the previous chief. "

What do they expect as result of the approved standards of living of Progressivism??

It's sadly funny every time there's a story of someone who gets busted for acting just like a Liberal by the system that insists that is the only acceptable standard to conduct oneself by.

Clearly this is ethnic profiling. Had the officer been named O’Shaunessey versus Bennett, I doubt we would have heard a word concerning the event. BTW, this post is useless without a picture. However am I to come to a verdict concerning the Officer’s guilt without a picture?

” putting an unapproved laser scope on his gun “

His service weapon was left in the holster (rimshot)

Do they now call him Dead Eye Dick (rimshot)

Too funny - and a shame that this small person (or any woman) has to do this for a living....

Who would pass up a chance to see a star in person? So what if he made her a little police business?

Well she chooses to...btw several little people take advantage of their short stature to win acting roles, etc.
Would Peter Dinklage have gotten the role of Simon Bar Sinister in Underdog (IIRC) if her were 5’9” instead of 4’5”?
....And some little people not only take adv. of their
small stature for employment, but they also use the dreaded M-word that small statured people often object to—this results it stuff like self-described “midget wrestlers”...

Sounds like he got the short end of the stick.

Losing his job was a tiny inconvenience.

He got in a teensy bit of trouble.

She used to be pretty ‘big’ in dwarf tossing.

Also it doesn’t take much to conjure up an image that her porn specialty has something to do with twirling
