LAPD officer arrested on child pornography charges

Source: Los Angeles Times

A veteran Los Angeles police officer was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of possessing child pornography and distributing obscene images of a minor, according to the Long Beach Police Department.

Officer James Diamond, 52, a 25-year veteran of the LAPD most recently assigned to the departmentís personnel division, has had his police powers suspended, an LAPD spokesman said. An internal LAPD investigation has also been launched.

Diamond could not be reached Wednesday, and it was unclear if he had retained counsel.

Long Beach police said detectives first launched their investigation in October, after the departmentís Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about materials showing child sex abuse being distributed online.

1. I'm shocked. One whose identity is "member of abusive authoritarian society" behaves thusly?

2. Not just possession, but distributing it. Investigate the entire department...

Fair odds that he was involved in a ring within the department.

3. Would his political leanings be relevant here?

I mean, is this just the case of another one bites the dust -- meaning, of course, another Republican is caught doing that thing that Republicans do but accuse others (namely Liberals) of doing?

Asking for a friend un-attuned to the ways of the GOP.
