(Scroll down for video) Using a company computer to break the law is always a bad idea, and breaking the law is even more unacceptable if you are police officer, who puts other people in jail for breaking the law.
A Tennessee police officer was arrested by the FBI after he used his patrol car computer to search for nude or pornographic images of underage girls.
Herbert Eugene Miller, 45, an auxiliary officer with the Greeneville Police Department, was arrested on charges of receiving and possessing child pornography.
Miller’s supervisor was notified that the computer on Miller’s patrol car recorded a lot of pornographic images. Many of them were child pornography. Several searches, including “hot highschool girls naked,” “fifth grade girls” and “naked middle school girls,” were also recorded, according to the criminal complaint.
Thousands of pornographic images, over 80 of which were child pornography, were also found on the hard drive of the patrol car laptop computer.
After he was confronted about the child porn, Miller resigned from the force where he worked since 2000.WJHL-TV: News: Weather, and Sports for Johnson City, TN
