LAKE ARTHUR (KPLC) - A Lake Arthur police officer has been charged with aggravated rape and molestation of a juvenile, state police said.

Troop I spokesman Stephen Hammons said 37-year-old Damon Broussard, of Egan, was arrested Tuesday following an investigation.

"During the investigation, detectives found that Broussard engaged in sexual activity several years ago with a child who was under 15," Hammons said in a news release. "Detectives also discovered that Broussard engaged in sexual activity with a different child, who under 13."

Hammons said that there is no indication the alleged incidents occurred during Broussard's duties as an officer.

As disgusting as this, if true, may be (I don't trust the media anymore than I do law enforcement), I find it decidedly reassuring to know that the self-righteous dolts we call legislators have less right to dump on us than they once thought. If the people you put into positions of power to enforce the laws that you think are just can't be trusted and may be destructive by nature, then just how perfect are you?
Humans are basically flawed and power does corrupt. The one thing that makes me better than the police, the government officials, DOJ and the rest is that I don't feel superior and I don't have artificial power to destroy or harm others...
Anybody that is given this type of power is automatically suspect and should be set to not only a higher standard but should be tested to see if they can meet that standard...
"To Protect and Serve...?"
Don't think so...
