Another Police Surveillance Tale: Seattle Cop Caught with Pants Down


Yesterday, an Associated Press story about police surveillance cameras of license plates got wide attention. Now, the Seattle Times reports that Seattle police have forwarded a surveillance video reportedly showing an officer urinating on the side of a building to the department's Office of Professional Accountability. While the officer is apparently relieving himself, he is seen looking up and muttering something once he spots the camera. He then moves out of camera range. Urinating in public is an infraction in Seattle. The video was posted on a local blog. When one commenter asked, “What’s the big deal,” the blogger responded, “The ‘big deal’ is that he’s violating the laws that he’s paid to enforce.”
