This was something waiting to happen!
A Miami-Dade police officer routinely stopped women drivers for no reason so he could have “sexually suggestive conversations” — including asking to see the scars on a Miami Beach bartender’s surgically enhanced breasts — and then let the women go without issuing any citations, federal authorities say.
On Wednesday, FBI agents arrested officer Prabhainjana Dwivedi at Miami-Dade police headquarters.
Dwivedi, 33, charged with depriving people of their civil rights, was released on a $150,000 personal surety bond. He must return to federal court Friday to address who is going to represent him as his defense attorney. His arraignment is set for Sept. 19.
An FBI criminal complaint portrayed Dwivedi as a rogue patrol officer who detained “numerous” female drivers for “unreasonable” lengths of time “without probable cause, reasonable suspicion or other lawful authority to conduct a stop.” The complaint focuses on a handful of traffic stops between May and June of last year, including one of a female undercover officer.

Florida, The Sunshine State
Florida police was hit by two high-profile cases where Florida police has abused their position against women suspects.

Mitt’s Sowing his Oats
Within a few minutes of this latest story being published, gmartini, a McClatchy reader commented that the Republican candidate, Mitt Romney pretty much had been doing the same thing.
In another questionable display of his inner prankster, it now appears that Romney was also reportedly fascinated with police uniforms, which he sometimes put on to carry out elaborate practical jokes.
Raises two questions in mind:
1. How long before a full-scale targeting of Indians will begin in USA? Is there an increasing pace of anti-Indian prosecutions in YummRika – or am I just noticing more of these actions?
2. What happened to the policemen who groped three New York women, while searching for a male rapist?
