A New Mexico state police officer has been fired after security cameras caught him having sex with a woman on the hood of a car.

Officer Bert Lopez's dismissal from the New Mexico state police was confirmed by The Santa Fe New Mexican on Saturday. The newspaper said Lopez has 30 days to appeal the firing.

The surveillance photos were taken from a motion-triggered security camera positioned at the front gate of the county-owned La Bajada Ranch south of Santa Fe. The encounter was at the remote Canyon Ranch.

Two photos showing a uniformed officer having sex on the hood were forwarded to Santa Fe Sheriff Robert Garcia, who identified the officer as being with New Mexico State Police. He forwarded the images to State Police Chief Robert Shilling.

His mistake:

He should instead have dealt 2,000 machine-guns to the most violent drug-dealings gangs in Mexico, permitting for officer dealths, casino conflagrations and helicopter shoot-downs.

Then he would have been OK.

Might have been the NM State Police bigdog’s squeeze.

He was probably barking while he was at it.

What I have wondered is, was this done as a bribe for the woman to get out of some sort of trouble? I have not followed this closely, but it seems likely. And even in NM I bet this is illegal...

I think it was a “romantic tryst” of sorts with consenting adults. I wish I was tech-savvy enough to find the original posting on the topic. The FR comments were hysterical (rated R but funny). For whatever strange reason, there is a small dog that looks exactly like a meerkat in the photo.

I think his firing was probably caused by him being on duty at the time. Yes, he was in his police officer uniform (although the Sam Brown is swung to one side) and it does appear to be on the hood of a police car. We live in crazy times!

Well, it’s certainly not what he’s paid to do while on duty. I want people who are hired to cary a gun and use good sense to actually use good sense too. This doesn’t seem like good sense behavior to me. I realize men and women are somewhat different in these things but sheesh, we are a little different than animals. If you can’t wait and get a room you are not exactly a civilized adult.
At the very least, anyway, I don’t think it’s what the taxpayers pay him to do.
Thanks for the info tho. (and I’m generally on the side of law enforcement and get plenty of grief for it around here).

“I’m generally on the side of law enforcement and get plenty of grief for it”.

With every profession, there are bad apples. Period. We usually only hear about the bad apples, too. I am sure there are many good stories about an officer and the great work that he or she does. I think the outrage/sensitivity towards the bad apples is because of the power of a law enforcement officer. They can arrest, detain, place handcuffs on you, taze you, shoot you etc... With that type of power, comes huge responsibility and scrutiny. When one sees a story, for example, of an officer losing his cool over a traffic stop and dragging someone out of their car... we immediately “place” ourselves or family in that position. The question becomes, “Could that have been Me?”.

I personally think if this person had been off duty.. maybe the worst that would have happened would have been placed on limited duty till the situation cooled off. That is why I really think he was on duty (he was in full uniform with the police car). People expect more control over the activities/duties especially when our taxes fund them. Yes, they should have gotten a “room” somewhere, when he was off duty. One of those, “there’s a time, there’s a place” situations.
