A Tennessee patrol officer had gone viral for all the wrong reasons and was blasted for his misconduct with a woman. It is disgusting to see cases of sexual harassment even in the so called ‘civilised’ world.
A woman named Patricia Aileen Wilson had accused a patrol officer in Tennessee of groping her during a traffic stop.
She even filed a case and complained that she was searched for no proper reason, before being harassed. Wilson was, of course, intent on the Highway Patrol Trooper, Isaiah Lloyd, being held accountable for his sexual misconduct.
She explained that the officer asked her to lean over his cruiser, after which he put his hands into her shorts and groped her crotch and her bottom.
Lloyd, the officer, just kept asking her if she had taken drugs, in spite of being assured that she had not taken any kind of drugs. She was then charged for not wearing the seatbelt.
Wilson also explained that just three hours later, Lloyd pulled her over again while her two children were in the car. Lloyd apparently told Wilson “We have to stop meeting like this.” In the lawsuit, Wilson further stated that Lloyd was “using his authority as a law enforcement officer to sexually harass” her.
The Tennesee Highway Patrol (THP) then released the video of the two traffic stops made by trooper Lloyd. Ultimately, the THP then decided to absolve Lloyd of criminal charges, explaining this in a statement:
“After careful consideration and review, the Tennessee Highway Patrol Command Staff has advised me that Trooper Isaiah Lloyd conducted this traffic stop in a professional manner in an effort to protect the motoring public.”
However, the District Attorney Jared Effler did state that he believed Lloyd’s behavior during the two traffic stops, “revealed that [his] actions were inconsistent with his training and Tennessee Department of Safety general orders.” But ultimately, Effler also agreed with the THP that there was not enough evidence for a court case against Lloyd.
Let’s hope that the officers take some moral responsibility for their actions as certain things cannot be forced or taught.
