CHP officer says stealing nude photos from female arrestees 'game' for cops

So you get pulled over and arrested for DUI, while you are being processed the cops like to search for nudes on your phone and send them to all of their buddies. This cop got busted because one of the women noticed that a bunch of images had been forwarded to a number she didn't know... the officer deleted the message from the phone but since the phone was linked to her iPad she saw the forwarded message.


CHP officer says stealing nude photos from female arrestees 'game' for cops

Quote:
MARTINEZ -- The California Highway Patrol officer accused of stealing nude photos from a DUI suspect's phone told investigators that he and his fellow officers have been trading such images for years, in a practice that stretches from its Los Angeles office to his own Dublin station, according to court documents obtained by this newspaper Friday.

CHP Officer Sean Harrington, 35, of Martinez, also confessed to stealing explicit photos from the cellphone of a second Contra Costa County DUI suspect in August and forwarding those images to at least two CHP colleagues. The five-year CHP veteran called it a "game" among officers, according to an Oct. 14 search warrant affidavit.


Harrington told investigators he had done the same thing to female arrestees a "half dozen times in the last several years," according to the court records, which included leering text messages between Harrington and his Dublin CHP colleague, Officer Robert Hazelwood.

Not good. Naive me, I didn't realize officers could demand to search your phone at a routine stop. I mean, can they?

*EDIT* Oh wait, read it again, this is happening with arrestees. (is that a word?)

Doesn't matter, if you have your phone locked this officer wouldn't be able to access your private data stored on your phone.

Unless your pictures are stored on the very easily removed microSD card on a lot of phones.

Good point. My previous flip phone (SE) didn't have a lock function, or I couldn't find it though my last Moto flip did. They'll need my thumb to access my iPhone but I'm guessing they don't want my photos.

While I think anyone who takes nude photos with their phone and thinks they will never see the light of day is a certifiable moron, they need to throw the book at these cops.

It is a question of correct grammar usage. How can a picture be naked or nude. It should therefore be a photo of a nude not a nude photo. OK. this is known as a hypallage. Example: `the cop danced the happy road home.`The road isn't happy, of course. Unless, of course the cop has a collection of nude photos, er, excuse me: photos of nudes. Ahhhhhh.....

FYI. 4th amendment to our beloved Constitution bars any cops from illegal search and seizure, meaning no snooping in the cell phone unless there's a reason why... Now if the cop sees you talking on cell phone while driving (in CA), and if he wants to get your phone to verify, tell him don't bother and just give you a ticket.
