This is so unfortunate for both the individual and for HPD.
HPD has had far too many incidents of concern about their officers. Many of the issues handles internally , with only the most serious ones making it to the public.
No wonder the recent try by the Federal Government to pas the Internet spying Bill resulted in a sharp and clear NO.
I think we only trust the Police when they are dealing with someone else, but when it comes to us as individuals, we do not! I think that mis trust is warranted.
I think we should not necessarily judge a persons professional character by their personal life although they can certainly mirror one another. They can definitely be silos. I will use the business world as an example. I know some excellent business people who are dedicated, ethical, treat their people well, successful and outward pillars of society but are miserable assholes to their family. I am against this internet bill as I beleive our privacy is invaded far enough already but I do not Mistrust the police based on these cases or in general./
