Who watches the watchmen?: MyYearbook edition

Gwinnett Police Officer Arrested:

Like I said recently about our nation’s military I have the utmost respect for the men and women in law enforcement in our country. They really do have a thankless task. However, I will post about a dirty cop when the occasion sadly arises. Now one doesn’t have to be ‘on the take’ to be dirty, one can be a sexual predator as well.

For example take 26-year-old Gwinnett, Georgia rookie cop, David Lowe. He was recently arrested by his own department for allegedly sharing sexually explicit videos with minors on MyYearbook. The impression that I got from the articles on Lowe he allegedly created a MyYearbook profile posing as a teen. Supposedly MyYearbook limits what age group you can communicate with. If you were to list your age on your profile as 26 then you wouldn’t be able to chat with minors through the site. However, as I’ve documented many times in the past that doesn’t mean that predators can’t lie about their age in their profiles.

Surprisingly Lowe is set to be terminated by the Gwinnett Police Department if he hasn’t been already. That’s refreshing since I’ve posted too many stories of bad cops who get suspended with pay.

UPDATE 5/29/2012: Lowe is out on bail.
