Michael Collins, Edwardsville Police Officer, Charged With Taping Women at Tanning Spa

Edwardsville police officer Michael Collins has been charged  with using his phone to record women while they were changing at the Image Sun Tanning Center in Glen Carbon, Illinois. Collins' official police duties include being the D.A.R.E officer at an unidentified school district -- this does not seem to be the type of daring activity in which a peace officer should be engaging.

A woman allegedly notice Collins recording her with his cell phone over the top of the wall of an adjoining room while she was preparing to tan. The victim reported the incident to Glen Carbon police, which then turned the case over to the Illinois State Police and the FBI. Collins' phone was confiscated, and investigators reportedly discovered images of two other women changing on the phone. The Illinois State Police and the FBI continue to investigate, and have not ruled out additional charges being brought against Collins.

Collins has been charged with three counts of unauthorized video recording, a class 4 misdemeanor in Illinois. He has been suspended with pay.

Come on. How in the world did he think this was a good idea? He's a cop. He had to know getting caught would be a career killer. Couldn't he exercise the least little bit of personal restraint?

Never trust a Kwap. A Kwap is a thug with a gun and a badge. No different from the street corner thug. You Kwans have been programmed to accept them as "heros" and that putting on the uniform wipes away any personality flaws. A Kwap is a revenue collector, nothing more. Don't ever look at them with respect, only scorn. A Kwap will dick you in a second because he's trained that you're a Kwan, he's in authority and you will do what he says because "he is the ultimate authority, you're just a Kwan (well you are still a Kwan but even you have rights).

Yes. He was. He also did the Edwardsville Police Youth Academy every summer. This is very unbelievable.
