Appalling.

A 17-year-old Florida girl was raped and you won't believe the disgusting remarks of the investigating officer. From the report issued by Pinellas County Sheriff's Office:

During this interview, you made wholly inappropriate comments with sexual overtones to this sexual battery victim. Your sexual comments to the victim were irrelevant to the investigation. You described sexual acts and identified body parts during the interview with this victim using inappropriate words such as “ass, fuck and tits.”
That's just the beginning of this horrible story. The full report includes Martin asking an array of humiliating and unnecessary questions regarding anal sex, lesbian sex and even interjections about how she sounded like his ex-wife.

This wasn't the first time Martin had been investigated. He has a litany of charges on his record with internal affairs, including "domestic violence, false imprisonment, associating with a drug user, and lying to his superiors."

When reading stories like this, it's no wonder 60% of sexual assaults continue to go unreported. The only silver lining here is that Paul Martin has been fired and will no longer be working for the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
