Officer Suspended Over Graphic Web Site

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 8:23 am

A police officer whose Web page on MySpace.com included images of dismembered women has been indefinitely suspended, authorities said.

Jeremiah Loves page on the social-networking site contained images and statements that could undermine public confidence in the police department, according to an internal affairs report. Love, 26, was suspended Tuesday.

Julia Vasquez, an assistant city attorney, said Love espoused a fondness for violence on the Web page that would hurt his testimony in criminal cases.

“These are comments that would make it difficult if he was trying to defend himself against a complaint regarding excessive force as an officer,” Vasquez said. “There may be no evidence of excessive force, but when someone looks at his site, the comments could be used against him in court.”
