Writing for God, Fighting Human Trafficking

*Shame!

The scandal in the Lakeland Police Department has left a stain that will take a lot of time to clean. A woman has come forth to say she’s been forced to work with sexual harassment, sexual propositions, false imprisonment, and sexual assault.

Yet, Police Chief Lisa Womack acts as if this can be fixed in a week, and they can move  on. She doesn’t seem to have a clue as to the cancer that has invaded her department.

As tax payers, do we want to pay for officers engaging in sex on the job, for police stops that include bra-shaking and more? As a woman, I want to know that if I’m pulled over, I won’t have to worry about being sexually harassed by the ones who are supposed to stop harassment.

Police Chief Lisa Womack called this “conduct not appropriate.”  She also stated that “There is not a culture of corruption. There is a culture of professionalism.” I’m amazed at those words. This is what she has to say about the men under her who are being investigated for forced sex,  false imprisonment, with sending obscene photos, etc? This is so much more than Chief Lisa Womack thinks it is.
