Fired 'Bondage Porno' Cop Wants Cuffs Back

A former Hollywood cop who appeared in a gay bondage porno long before he was patting down perps wants his job back.

Michael Verdugo, 35, is filing a civil lawsuit against the Hollywood Police Department, claiming he was fired in January of last year for being openly gay, according to the Miami Herald.

In 1996, Verdugo, then 22, was in a 15-minute scene in "Rope Rituals." Though he didn't do any hardcore sex scenes, he appeared naked and shackled.

"It was all role-playing bondage. I was tied," Verdugo told the Herald. "I used handcuffs later on in my career."

A Lauderhill cop in 1999, Verdugo joined the Hollywood force in 2001. In 2008, he appeared on HGTV's "Design Star" as Mikey V.

When the "Rope Rituals" tape surfaced that year, Verdugo lost his cop job and spot on "Design Star."

"I don't regret it," said Verdugo of his brief porn career. "It was a time in my life that I wanted to explore."

Now Verdugo is suing for wrongful termination and discrimination, claiming he got the ax because he's openly gay.

Not so, said Hollywood Police, who claim Verdugo left the porno appearance off his application.

"This had nothing to do with Mike Verdugo's sexuality. It had to do with his honesty. The application process to become a police officer is very arduous," Hollywood spokeswoman Raelin Storey said.

In the meantime, Verdugo isn't doing too bad, he runs his own interior design company and another that remodels homes, both in South Florida.

But Verduro wants to rejoin the boys in blue and possibly help other cops who might want to come out.

"They don't want to come out because they see what happened to me. It's a double-edge sword," Verdugo said. “Discrimination is still huge in the police community. It's just huge."

being successful in crime requires some clear thinking

If you buy drugs from an undercover officer, it might be wise to boot him OUT of the car when the deal goes south, instead of speeding away with him IN the car beside you.

Just sayin'....

------------

Police say a crack cocaine dealer sped away from a drug bust with an undercover officer in his car Friday.

Talon Sage Thiele, 19, of 7618 Hidden Creek Drive, Charlotte, allegedly sold 2 ½ grams of crack cocaine to Mount Holly Police Sgt. M.E. Walls outside an Asian market in Mount Holly. Detectives tried to arrest Thiele, but he drove off in his 1995 Volvo with Walls still inside, according to a magistrate’s order affidavit.

Walls shifted the transmission into neutral to stop the vehicle and Thiele ran away, the affidavit states. Police arrested him after a short chase.

Thiele allegedly sold Walls one gram of crack cocaine for $80 on Oct. 27, 4.1 grams for $300 on Oct. 30 and 5.5 grams for $300 on Nov. 6, affidavits state.

Police charged him with second-degree kidnapping and four counts each of possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a Schedule II controlled substance, selling a Schedule II controlled substance, delivering a Schedule II controlled substance and maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance.

Thiele was jailed under a $500,000 secured bond.

7 Bullshit Police Myths Everyone Believes (Thanks to Movies)

So glad they touched on the Miranda Rights issue. I get sick of people saying, "The cop didn't read him his rights!!!" That's because he doesn't always HAVE to.
-------

Hollywood has never been afraid to sacrifice realism for the sake of an entertaining story. And since pretty much every movie or TV show features the police in some way, we as an audience get fed a lot of total horseshit about how the law works and how cops operate in the USA.

But as most of us are on the outside of the judicial system (for the moment) we usually don't even realize that what we're being told is incorrect. So we just accept things like...

Roger Murtagh: "Police! Open up!"

Roger Murtagh: "I'll shoot you through the door. You can examine the bullet."

Leo Getz: "What should I call you?"

Roger Murtagh: "Sgt. Murtagh and Sgt. Riggs."

I was watching Paranormal Cops and I saw an advertisement for NEW episodes of Manhunters starting this Thursday, January 21st at 10 on A&E.

Looks like they're following Lenny DePaul's guys again, as shown in the previous season.

Check 'em out!

Hmmm, I don't remember this hottie!!

In one of the most critical elections in recent history, a plurality of the two million netizens casting a ballot in People's "Best of 2009" online poll chose Dustin Moyer of Ashland, Missouri as the "Sexiest Dad Alive."

Moyer, 26, was competing in the "Real People" section of the contest. As opposed to the contest exclusively for celebrities, who frankly have become so impressive they are not real.

Moyer's wife told the Columbia Daily Tribune that her husband, a police officer at the University of Missouri, is sexy because he puts his wife and son first. Hmm. We might call that admirable, responsible, selfless or good. But does it make us want to slip into something more comfortable and whip out the strawberries?

No...although....he does wear a uniform...

If anybody gets the Outdoor Channel and would kindly send me ss's from the S.W.A.T. Magazine TV show, I'd greatly appreciate it.

It's supposed to air weekly starting this month some time on Wednesdays.

normal cops or Paranormal Cops?

Don't forget to check out A&E's Paranormal Cops, which premieres tonight at 10:30 PM EST.

Here's a bit about the show....
A&E sets out on a ghost patrol with a team of Chicago-area police officers who spend their off-duty hours as paranormal investigators in the new original real-life series "Paranormal Cops." The six-episode half-hour series kicks off with a special one-hour season premiere on Tuesday, January 19, 2010 at 10:30 PM ET/PT on A&E.

"Paranormal Cops" follows a group of larger-than-life cops who walk one beat during the day as real-life Chicago-area police officers and another at night when they apply their forensic and investigative expertise to paranormal casework. Responding to the pleas of people who are victimized by distressing and inexplicable activities in their homes and workplaces, these cops bring their no-nonsense approach to hunting ghosts and real-life police skills to separate the fact from fiction and often happen upon results much scarier than the paranormal.

In "Casa Madrid," the one-hour series premiere, the team responds to a store manager who is so distraught over events taking place in the basement of his store that he is ready to quit. An investigation turns up paranormal activity and uncovers that the store was once a notorious hangout and gambling hall frequented by figures from the underworld and host to countless crimes, even murder.

The "Paranormal Cops" team consists of investigators Ron Fabiani, Tom Froelich, Austin Weinstock and Pete Schlelich, medium Moriah Rhame, and investigative assistants Brian Jones and Scot Ziarko.

"Paranormal Cops" is produced by North South Productions for A&E. Charlie Debevoise and Mark Hickman serve as executive producers and Mark Marinaccio as co-executive producer for NorthSouth Productions. A&E Executive Producers are Robert Sharenow and Elaine Frontain Bryant.

Man cited for 'rocking out' to John Denver

Sorry, but anybody who listens to John Denver and calls it "rocking out" deserves to be cited!
-----------
A 42-year-old Fond du Lac man was cited Jan. 13 for "rocking out" to John Denver.

At 3:11 a.m., police were called to Calumet Apartments, 68 Harrison Place, for a loud noise complaint, according to a Fond du Lac Police Department report.

Officer Ryan Williams pounded on the man's third-floor door and recognized the songs of the late singer John Denver.

The man did not answer the door until the officer learned his name from a neighbor and called for him to answer, according to the report.

Williams asked why the music was so loud. The man responded he was "rocking out."

The man was cited for unnecessary loud noise. The ticket could result in a $208.50 fine.

Police bike stolen from policeman

Hmm, wonder if the officer's name was Lt. Jim Dangle???
-----------


It is not unusual for a bicycle to be stolen on a college campus. But from right underneath a policeman's nose?

On October fifth, the UIC police responded to a theft report at 700 South Halsted, where the Student Residence and Commons dormitories are. According to documents obtained by the Chicago Flame, "while conducting surveillance a bike was placed as a set up." The bike, however, was "removed by person(s) unknown and the area was searched with negative results."

The bicycle was a Black Cannondale Police Mountain bike worth $1,187.90.

According to University Spokesman Bill Burton, no charges have been filed in the theft. He would not comment further, saying, "The issue remains under investigation, and as a policy we do not comment on ongoing investigations."

There was another bicycle stolen that same day at 845 W. Taylor. It was an 18 speed El Dorado Mountain Bike, white in color with black and grey lettering. It is unclear if it was ever recovered.

These incidents highlight the problem of stolen bicycles at the University of Illinois at Chicago campus.

Several students that the Chicago Flame has spoken to relay stories of policemen approaching them to ask that they register their bikes for safekeeping as part of their Bicycle Theft and Registration Program, which is one of the university's counter-measures to bike stealing.

You can learn more about the program at UIC.edu/depts/police.

I'm counting on you, Al Roker


According to my stats for 2009, if I wanted to create a Hott Cop super couple who would send my stats through the roof, it would be Chris Masters of DEA and Andrea Penoyer from Police Women of Broward County.
Heck, they might not only be good for my stats, they might be a really cute law enforcement couple!

Ok, Al Roker, it's all up to you now....

British police officers admonished for using riot shields as sleds

Note to some British police officers: Your riot shield is not a snow sled.

During a recent cold snap that left several inches of snow in Oxford, bobbies who were seen zooming down hills on their shields have been reprimanded by their superiors.

Someone filmed the officers on a snowy hill on Tuesday, then posted the clip on YouTube. It shows a policeman barreling down the hill while another shouts, "Whatever happens, keep smiling!"

Rick Latham, who was sliding down the hill himself in a kayak, filmed the bobbies on their shields. He said he assumed the policemen were going to scold him for using a boat on the hill.

Thames Valley Police Superintendent Andrew Murray said to Fox News on Thursday he had told the officers "that tobogganing on duty, on police equipment and at taxpayers' expense is a very bad idea."

But he added that snow brings "out the child in all of us."

Seriously. Reprimanded for this? That's utter bullshit.

Times Square Billboard to Feature FBI Most Wanted

Grrrreat idea!
------------

"The FBI's most wanted will soon be staring at tourists in Times Square.

The agency will unveil a digital billboard there Friday.

It will air pictures of fugitives and missing persons. It also will publicize high-priority security messages.

Besides criminals, it will draw attention to kidnap victims and missing children. The FBI hopes the public can help find them."

ouch! he's hott

well, there's one goal for 2010 accomplished....

I was driving home from work today through the city, and I saw the Chief of Police and his second in command getting out of a squad at the police station.

It took me a second to realize why that seemed so weird. I'm used to seeing them on the news, and this is the first time I have ever seen them "in person" and no, they're not new to their positions. They've both held their jobs for years!

I seriously need to get out more....

A Kentucky State Trooper was patrolling late at night off the main highway.


He sees a couple in a car, with the interior light brightly glowing.


He carefully approaches the car to get a closer look.


Then he sees a young man behind the wheel, reading a computer magazine. He immediately notices a young woman in the rear seat, filing her fingernails.

Puzzled by this surprising situation, the trooper walks to the car and gently raps on the driver’s window.

The young man lowers his window. ‘Uh, yes, Officer?’

The trooper asks: ‘What are you doing?’

The young man says: ‘Well, Officer, I’m reading a magazine.’

Pointing towards the young woman in the back seat the trooper says: ‘And her, what is she doing?’

The young man shrugs: ‘Sir, I believe she’s filing her fingernails.’

Now, the trooper is totally confused. A young couple, alone, in a car, at night in a lover’s lane… And nothing obscene is happening!

The trooper asks: ‘What’s your age, young man?’

The young man says: ‘I’m 22, sir.’

The trooper asks: ‘And her… what’s her age?’

The young man looks at his watch and replies: ‘She’ll be 18 in 11 minutes.’
