THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, back in April, Coppell Deputy Police Chief Matthew Kosec abruptly resigned from the department. He didn’t give a reason, nor did the city, which said only that he’d been on administrative leave for weeks while an internal affairs investigation was conducted. Meanwhile, both The Dallas Morning News and CBS 11 each filed an open records request for copies of the 145-page investigative report, which they finally got their hands on yesterday. According to the report, a female cop filed a complaint against Kosec in March after the deputy chief beckoned her to his desk, where a crowd of police department employees were gathered, laughing at pictures. He told another officer to go back and show the woman a picture taken from the phone of an 18-year-old assault suspect — the Morning News says he’s a junior or senior high school football player — showing him “nude and either touching or covering his genitals.” Is this really what our police force is up too? Going through peoples phones while they are in custody.
The world is really ending considering we can’t even trust the people hired to keep us safe and honest.- nik
