Officer charged with raping woman while on duty

INDIANAPOLIS - "An Indianapolis police officer has been charged with rape, criminal deviate conduct and other crimes.

Thirty-six-year-old Anthony S. Smith was suspended amid allegations that he sexually assaulted a 19-year-old woman while on duty early Friday morning. He was in police custody Thursday night.

A probable cause affidavit shows that Smith stopped the woman at a gas station and told her she was wanted on a warrant in a misdemeanor case. The woman says Smith threatened to put her in jail unless she had sex with him."

One of these days someone's going to assemble a database of police malfeasance, and it simply can't come too soon. Even if just to prove to the unbelievers that the majority of cops are bad apples, that the job has changed so much as to virtually guarantee a certain level of corruption.
