https://www.boston25news.com/news/trending-now/cop-charged-after-videos-show-her-mocking-mentally-ill-recording-suspects-genitals/932438479

A former Las Vegas police officer was arrested last week following an internal investigation into alleged misconduct including making a mentally ill man dance for her, force-feeding a handcuffed man gummy bears, filming another man’s genitals and using racial and homophobic epithets.

Each of the incidents was recorded on Rachel Sorkow’s personal cellphone, authorities said.

Sorkow, 29, is charged with five felony counts of misconduct of a police officer and two misdemeanor charges, indecent exposure and capturing the image of the private area of another person, according to a news release from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. At the time of the incidents, she was assigned to the department’s Community Policing Division.

n one case, she looked up information on another female officer’s ex-boyfriend, who the officer believed had stolen her car, KTNV in Las Vegas reported. The other officer used the data to find the man at his home and confront him.

Another piece of information she provided, this time to a civilian, was a nonredacted report in a child abuse case, the Sun reported. The report named the children involved.

Investigators, who say they found at least 19 instances in which Sorkow accessed law enforcement databases to illegally gather information, met with the officer in December to inform her of the criminal investigation into her alleged actions, the Sun said. At that time, they confiscated her cellphone.

A search of Sorkow’s phone turned up even more disturbing information, including incriminating text messages and seven videos involving four different citizens with whom she came into contact while on-duty, the arrest report obtained by the newspaper said. She also shared photos and screenshots of the incident report in a child neglect case, in which dead rats were found in the home where the neglect took place. .

“Sorkow would order these individuals, some of which were handcuffed, all of which were in her control, to perform a wide variety of acts while video records them with her personal cellular phone,” the report said.

At least two of the people recorded were noticeably impaired, and Sorkow sent the videos to multiple friends and family members, including other Metro officers, the report said.

In a video taken in April 2017, she ordered a person who appeared to be a “mentally ill” man wearing a dress to dance for her, the report said. In a text message to another officer about the video, she called the person “shim,” a transphobic slur, the report said. The other officer had recorded the person walking and sent that video to Sorkow, the report said.

'
After Sorkow was dispatched to a “potential domestic violence incident” in January 2018, she recorded a woman who appeared “heavily intoxicated,” and she commented on the woman’s weight and told her to expose her stomach, the report said.


Sorkow and a male officer were dispatched in May after a report of a man exposing himself. At the scene, Sorkow recorded the man, who was handcuffed and appeared intoxicated, telling him to kick a patrol vehicle and expose his genitals through a rip in his pants, the report said. At one point in the video she yells, “Do it again!” while “zooming in” on the man’s crotch, the report said.

She also recorded a conversation with him and used a racial slur, the report said.

“The only thing I remember is we thought that was funny, you know?” the male officer, whose name was redacted in the report, told investigators.

Sorkow admitted to investigators that she recorded the videos without “malice intent” because she “thought it was funny,” the report said. She said the people in the video were OK with her recording and sharing the videos.

1. If true, it is Nazi-like abuse of people.

2. Worst? How about this one?

COLUMBUS - Columbus police vice detective Andrew Mitchell is facing federal charges after he allegedly held women against their will and forced them to engage in sexual acts for their freedom.
A grand jury indicted Mitchell on March 7. He was arrested Monday morning by federal agents.
Mitchell is being charged on seven counts: three counts deprivation of rights under color of law, two counts witness tampering, one count of obstruction of justice and one count false statement to a US agency.
Mitchell has been with the Columbus Division of Police since 1988. He was assigned to the Vice Unit in March 2017.
The indictment mentions three incidents (July 2017, September 2017 and Summer 2018) where Mitchell allegedly kidnapping a victim and took them to a location where he forced them to perform sexual acts to be released.
Mitchell is also accused of attempting to tamper with two witnesses in this case and delay or prevent the testimony of another victim.
The indictment additionally says Mitchell provided a false statement to FBI agents in September 2018 when he stated he never had sex with a prostitute.
If convicted, Mitchell faces up to life in prison.

3. No where near as bad a john burge in Chicago:

burge is the reason Illinois now does not have the death penalty.


Burge was accused of leading a crew of rogue detectives who abused more than 100 African-American men. Allegations of brutal tactics to coerce confessions from suspects dogged the former South Side police commander and his subordinates throughout the 1970s and into the early 1990s. Suspects told horrifying stories about being beaten, burned, electro-shocked or suffocated with plastic typewriter covers and abused in other ways.

Some of those suspects, who later said they had given false confessions because of the abuse, ended up on death row.

Despite scores of men who reported the abuses, Burge evaded prosecution on torture charges.

He was fired from the department in 1993, amid a scandal after authorities determined Burge had tortured Andrew Wilson, who was accused in the deaths of two police officers. His brother Jackie Wilson's conviction and life sentence for the same crimes were overturned in June 2018 when a judge ruled police had coerced his confession. Jackie Wilson had served more than 36 years in prison. Andrew Wilson died in prison.

burge only spent 4 and a half years in prison because there is a statute of limitations on torture. he was only convicted on charges of perjury.

6. "That's not malicious.... I'm not gonna sit here and tell you I didn't laugh."

How about exposing her genitals? That would be hilarious

7. Let's face it, law enforcement attracts the bullies, racists, and thugs.

The ones who shouldn't have the power of life and death over a gerbil much less a human being, but there they are, and when they do wrong the Blue Wall of Silence comes up to protect them. I reckon there's not a cop who doesn't know who the lowlifes are who are working in their midst but they keep quiet about it.
