Crook

 http://www.addictinginfo.org/2014/10/12/detroit-police-sergeant-steals-murder-victims-watch/

A homicide cop stole a watch from a murder victim.  Other officers noticed the officer wearing the victims watch and had him arrested.  Some people complain this is evidence of police corruption.  Certainly in the case of the thief, that's true, but not for the department.

Actually the system worked quite well.  The officer stole a watch.  His partners discovered the crime and got him arrested.  Every organization will have a few crooks, it's how organizations respond to those crooks that's important.  The right thing to do is to make sure that the crooked cop gets arrested and goes to jail.

These officers did the right thing.  Police officers who commit felonies in the line of duty should be fired, and they should not get a pension either.  No good cop likes a crooked cop; that's what the SGT Says.
