L.A. Officer “Groping Bare Breasts” Caught on Video, Fired

by Ayvaunn Penn, Your Black World

People usually fly by traffic officers without thinking twice. One particular Los Angeles traffic officer — or should I say ex-officer — could make you do a double take. On Monday, John Dancler was relieved of his traffic officer services for misconduct  on the job. More notably, he was fired for engaging his eyes and hands with naked female body parts as opposed to maintaining his focus on directing motorists. The Associated Press reports:

 “A Los Angeles traffic officer was fired for appearing in a pornographic film while on duty more than three years ago. John Dancler was dismissed Monday for misconduct on the job and engaging in indecent acts that reflected poorly on the city workforce, according to his notice of discharge….The inappropriate acts include ‘groping the bare breasts, spanking the bare buttocks, and being straddled by an adult video actress in public,’ the notice said.”

Dancler was not alone in his actions, however. Ironically enough, his “partner in crime” was a fellow officer. According to the Associated Press, investigation of these two officers took place three months ago when “KNBC reported they appeared in a video showing a uniformed officer spanking and fondling an actress.” To make matters worse, one of these frisky scenes took place in a city vehicle.

For some reason, the other unnamed officer was not fired. Bruce Gillman, the transportation department spokesperson, says that the other officer is still working yet being reprimanded appropriately. Due to state law shielding employee privacy, Gillman refused to share additional information concerning the disciplinary process.

  1. The other office kept his job because he most likely was not black, end of story..Anyway, they both should have known better. That is typical of police offices who are out of line. They know they should not have crossed that like but they did so I do not feel sorry for either of them

  2. This violates professional ethics. All public servants should be thoroughly schooled in ethics. Too many public servants are loosing their jobs due to a lack of judgement. It is a pandemic. In our corporations policies are written to govern behavior when two employees are enamored with one another. It affects the effective performance of departments. Can you trust an employee who does not have control over his or her sexual appetites? That can be exploited by a competitor. This is even affecting our military. Soldiers rape foreign citizens and soldiers within their own ranks. Military Sexually Induced Post Traumatic Stress Disorder affects soldiers for the rest of their lives. Some are married with children. That destroys honor before God and the whole world and brings a sure and justified vengeance. Do not think that Nuremberg can’t happen here. Hyper-sexuality at the expense of proper judgement and ethics, as applied by our public servants, destroys nations and families and individual lives.
