Officers keep screwing up....Marine Colonel on Joint Staff Busted in Prostitution Sting

A large-scale prostitution and human trafficking sting in Florida's Polk County this week resulted in the arrest of a seasoned Marine colonel assigned to the Joint Staff.

Tampa Bay Times reported that Col. Kevin Scott was among 277 individuals arrested and charged in "Operation No Tricks, No Treats," a sting carried out by the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

Master Sgt. Ryan O'Hara, a spokesman for Marine Corps Forces Command, confirmed that Scott was assigned to Joint Staff Suffolk, Virginia.

Scott entered the Marine Corps in 1984 and is a logistics officer, O'Hara said.

"Everything's under investigation now," he said, adding that more actions may be taken by the service pending the results of the investigation.
 When he was arrested, the paper reported, he claimed he was retired and no longer serving in the Marine Corps.

"We had to call the government and say, 'Hey would you like to come get your leased car 'cause your colonel is on the way to the county jail,' the paper quotes Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd as saying.

According to the Times, Scott was charged with a single misdemeanor count of soliciting a prostitute.

Wow.  How can I say what's really on my mind and not have the entire tribe thinking I've lost what little brain cells I have left?

Ah fuck it.

Question.  This dude was picking up sleazy ass street whores?  He got busted in a fucking low level, no brain power required, street level prostitution ring?

They need to test the dude for crack. That's so stupid it must be drug related!

The Officer Corps is broken.

I can see LCpl Schmucatelli doing some crap like this...even Gunny whoever...even Lt or Capt nobody...but a Colonel?  A freaking senior officer? Something is very wrong in the upper ranks.

Sidenote.  It's a misdemeanor crime but his career is over.  If he's lucky they'll give him a letter of warning and let him quietly move on with his life.

Sidenote 1.  Did you read the highlighted part of the story?  Sounds like the cops were almost gleeful.  Cops that chase whores are the weird part of any dept I've ever heard of.
