Cops Gone Wild? Series of sex romp claims dogs law enforcement as ‘defund’ movement may add fuel to fire

A series of cases involving female police officers caught up in salacious sex scandals has raised questions if bad behavior is rampant in law enforcement agencies – and the “Defund” movement may be adding fuel to the fire, one expert said.

Wild accusations have hit several police departments and jails in what appears to be a growing trend, with several female officers filing lawsuits against higher-ups claiming sexual harassment and assault.

The apparent increase in cases is “100%” related to the “Defund the Police” movement that gained traction in the wake of the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police in 2020, said attorney John Scola.

“I saw an uptick in clients right after George Floyd in all types of discrimination cases with the NYPD,” Scola said.

The year began with a viral news story about a female police officer in Tennessee who was fired from the force after it was discovered she was having affairs with multiple male colleagues, including while on-duty. Months after news broke of former officer Maegan Hall’s affairs, she announced a lawsuit arguing she was sexually “groomed” for the trysts.

That was one of several cases which had some wondering if intradepartment sexual misconduct was more widespread that some would have thought.

Scola that before the “Defund the Police” movement, members of the force who were facing harassment likely did not come forward out of fear of going against the NYPD “family.” However, after Floyd’s death on Memorial Day 2020, when protests and riots swept the nation amid raging anti-cop sentiment, officers changed their thought process, Scola argued.

“With ‘Defund the Police’ and lack of support, I think a lot of people who were being harassed … it made it easier for them to come forward and really expose how they were being treated.”

Fox News Digital previously reported on a lawsuit in Michigan of a former female officer, Teresa Williams, who sued her department this year over claims she was groped, coaxed into kissing a superior officer over shots of alcohol and “held to a completely different standard” on the job than her coworkers.

“I want my story to be told because I want people to know — other women to know — that they’re not alone,” Williams told the Detroit Free Press. “And I want other women to know that it’s OK to be embarrassed about stuff like this. . . . You shouldn’t have to hide from it. People need to be held accountable for this type of bulls—.”
