Taking one for the team

I’ve written a few stories about prostitute stings, and I always wondered whether any officer goes a little further than he should during an undercover operation. The answer is yes.

According to the Beaumont Enterprise on 8/21/08:

Officer Keith Breiner, suspended from the police force in Beaumont, Texas, for crossing the line during an undercover prostitution sting (that is, he actually had sex), defended himself in an August hearing: “It was a job, sir. I didn’t have pleasure doing it.” It was, he said, “something I did for the city.”
