SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) -- He's in uniform and apparently on duty. But New Mexico State Police said the officer caught on camera having sex with a woman on the hood of a car did not commit a crime.

“WTF”

Is right! How can I get a job where you can do this on the clock? That is one hell of a fringe benefit.

“Johnson declined to release the name of the officer, but..”

His name has already been released - BERT LOPEZ.

The court found that screwing the public is part of the civil service job requirement. He was just performing his duty as a public servant to the best of his ability.

Everything is legal, if you don’t get caught.

As long as it's on the hood of a car. (Is that a hood ornament, or are you happy to see me?)

After reviewing the picture I believe this officer was just involved in a normal traffic stop and was performing a detailed strip search...that included a cavity exploration.

Holy Mother of God.

There's no crime here? Wonder if *I'D* have been busted?

We are truly an outright fascist Police State. Only the Proles can commit crimes.

There have been cops that have arrested men for.. uh, tinkling, near a building in the dark. Public indecency... which I find crazy unless the man is actually wagging it in front of people. If nothing else, and I mean nothing else, this officer should be charged “conduct unbecoming” and fired. Plain and simple. If this act isn’t “conduct unbecoming” then I don’t know what the definition means. IMHO

That’s what defense attorneys are thinking. Here’s precedent...you didn’t charge these two for having sex in public, so you can’t charge my client.

So it’s legal to have sex in public in Santa Fe? Really? What would constitute an illegal act of exposure?

Absolutely. Any arrest in this jurisdiction for public indecency is automatically selective enforcement.

Did you expect him to be? The only tim that an officer of the law or a politician is ever charged when they commit a criminal act is when they tick off someone that is in a higher position of power that they are. It starts at the court house and goes to the white House. Or, from dog catcher to President.

Boss: I'm going to get right to the point. It has come to my attention that you and the cleaning woman have engaged in sexual intercourse on the desk in your office.
Is that correct?

George: Who said that?

Boss: She did.

George: Was that wrong? Should I have not done that? I tell you I gotta plead ingnorance on this thing because if anyone had said anything
to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing was frouned upon, you know, cause I've worked in a lot of offices and I tell you peope do that all the time.

Boss: You're fired.

George: Well you didn't have to say it like that.

Boss: I want you out of here by the end of the day.

George: What about the whole Christmas spirit thing? Any flexability there?

Boss: Nah. Wait, wait, she wanted me to give you this.

He tosses the sweater and it lands right on top of George's face. George walks out of the office "wearing" it.

Thanks for the laugh.
BTW, so what if he took an extra 5 minutes from “work”?

This must be covered in the Union contract under “compulsory breaks”.

In the department I used to work for, this is one of the deadly sins - automatic termination, no if ands or buts. it wouldn't matter if it was with his wife of 20 years. You are getting paid to scr*w the motoring public, not some bimbo.

In fact, it is now a pre-employment polygraph question, "While on duty in your employment, have you ever...?"

And yes, it is a crime. There isn't a jurisdiction in the US that doesn't have an open lewdness statute. This was in a public place. This Trooper should be terminated and arrested. Let a jury decide. The corpus delicti certainly is there (pun intended).
