Police officer rescues 2 from burning house in Colesville, Maryland

Police officer rescues 2 from burning house in Colesville, Maryland Right place at the right time. A police officer rescued two people from a burning house early Tuesday morning after officials say he saw the flames while he was getting into his car in Colesville, Md. Around 6 a.m., fire officials say a police officer spotted flames while he was getting into his car at a nearby fire house. The officer reported the fire before rushing to the house on Stanley Lane. Arriving before firefighters, the police officer immediately jumped into action, went inside and rescued two people from the burning house. An off-duty firefighter also arrived on the scene to help assist the officer.

Two more women have now come forward with sexual harassment complaints about Mesa police Officer Jeffrey Neese -- victims number seven and eight by my count -- and he has, at long last, been “reassigned to his home.”

One wonders what it would take for the Mesa Police Department to reassign someone to the unemployment line.

Based upon the many women accusing Neese of randy behavior, this guy put the a-s-s in sexual harASSment.

While he was the city’s SWAT team sergeant, various female officers complained that he gave them naked pictures of themselves – pictures he had drawn based upon photos of them fully clothed – and/or notified them via text that he was masturbating as he thought about them.

Buyer raised asking price on Mesa home disabled veteran lost over tax dispute MESA, Ariz. - Jim Boerner still can’t believe his days in his Mesa home might be numbered—after getting a notice from the Maricopa County Treasurer’s Office that his home would be auctioned off if he didn’t pay his back taxes by June 30. “I’m in jeopardy of not only losing something that I paid cash for but having to use the rest of my savings to find somewhere else to live,” he said.

"I'm currently doing things to the thought of you right now," he texted to Officer Amanda Cook. Just in case she didn’t get his drift, the text includes a helpful emoji to indicate masturbation. (Yes, there is one.)

"I was just thinking of you watching me jerk off and it was intense how much came out and how strong it was," he texted to Officer Elisha Gibbs.

Neese would often follow up his obnoxious texts by questioning whether he had "said too much" or "crossed the line."

Apparently not too far over the line -- at least, not for the city of Mesa.

City sided with the women (sort of)

After five officers complained, the city investigated. Neese contended they were all lying but the city found the complaints had merit and decided to suspend him for 50 hours and move him laterally to a sergeant's position in the patrol department.

Then a sixth woman complained and the city demoted him to a patrol officer.

Because unleashing this character onto the streets to deal with an unsuspecting public – a guy who is bold enough to sexually harass police officers -- makes soooo much sense.

The six officers last week filed a $1 million notice of claim with the city, alleging a hostile environment given the city's refusal to adequately discipline Neese.

"How many victims does it take for the City to follow its zero tolerance policy?" their attorney David Lunn asked, in a statement.

If not six, how about .... eight?

Why is this guy still employed?

Two more women have come forward with complaints about Neese since the officers went public last week.  Neither works for the city.

A Mesa spokesman on Tuesday told The Republic’s Bree Burkit the city is investigating. Nease, meanwhile, has been “reassigned to his home."

With full pay, of course.

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight women have now complained, along with a male officer who says his wife was sexually harassed by Neese,

Six of those complaints already have been investigated and found to be true and now two more.

And the best Mesa can come up with is to pay this guy to sit home, probably until he becomes eligible for a full retirement in December?

This, in a city that claims zero tolerance for sexual harassment?

Gee, I hope the people who run the Police Department at least disarmed him of his cell phone… or if that's deemed too harsh by city standards, maybe they could disable his emojis?
