A story coming out of NYC brings the solidness of the NYPD’s psychological requirements into question. An officer was arrested for lewd acts in the wee hours of Sunday Morning on Long Island. Robert Francis was caught by Rockville Centre police while standing in a backyard and masturbating while looking into a child’s window.
This isn’t an isolated incident, according to the NY Daily News:
On March 3, police in the Nassau County village put out a “citizen advisory” on their Facebook page, asking the public’s help catching a suspect in three similar incidents.
The first took place on Feb. 5, the next two on Feb. 27. The suspect, described by the advisory as 5-foot-10, 220 pounds and “probably white,” was naked from the waist down and had either a flashlight or a forehead light on him.
The cops aren’t saying if Francis is connected to the previous incidents. Francis was booked on a charge of public lewdness. He has been suspended from the NYPD without pay.
