NC police officer charged with on-duty sex crimes

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A police officer in North Carolina's largest city has been charged with sexually assaulting two female motorists he had pulled over while on duty. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Officer Marcus Jackson was being held on bond totaling $360,000 before a court hearing Thursday. Jail records did not indicate whether he had an attorney, and a spokesman did not immediately return a call. The case began after a relative reported Monday that a 17-year-old girl said she was ordered into Jackson's car, driven to another site, and assaulted. The 25-year-old Jackson was charged with sexual battery, second-degree sex offense, extortion, kidnapping, indecent exposure and two counts of felonious restraint. Police Chief Rodney Monroe says he encourages other potential victims to come forward. (Copyright 2009 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)

All men are fallible. No one is above the law. Because you are a police officer, a priest, a president of this country, a school teacher, a flight attendant, or wear any uniform, does not make you right every time. This is why I do not understand why a psychologist must be so highly trained and credentialed, and a 21 year old police officer is handed much more absolute power to enforce "morally acceptable behavior" after graduating from BLET. No disrespect intended, but I know many cops - some in my own family - and have heard the stories...

I wonder how much its going

I wonder how much its going to cost the taxpayers to house this arse clown... Gee, a sex offender cop in the big house. Get ready to dance the posturpedic polka with bubba.

Another reason when pulled

Another reason when pulled over to call other officers to the scene. No one can be trusted with power.

Good job barney

If you are found guilty enjoy your Hoke County Vacation.
