The worst part of this story is that this isn’t the first time this cop has done this. He was going to be prosecuted for a similar incident but the woman was too afraid to testify so the charges were dropped and he was allowed to remain on duty.

What kind of an environment do these officers work in where this cop would have any bit of confidence that he could get away with this?

We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.
