    Coppertone ~ Officer uses tanning salon while on duty

    Chief John Johnson hid a global positioning system tracker on the car used by his two detectives and waited for them to confirm suspicions they were running their personal lives on company time.

    One detective, Thomas Schilling, was working on a tan during his shift, combining criminology and dermatology.

    Imagine how somnolent a police department must be when a detective can stop on a regular basis at the tanning salon, get undressed and stretch out on a tanning bed.

    Gives new meaning to the word Coppertone. It turns out all that stands between the citizens of Muskego and crime is the thin tan line.

    Diversity on the police department is a worthy goal, but being bronze does not qualify Schilling as a person of color. He was tanned, rested and probably not that ready.

    The chief should have known something was awry when detectives began interrogating bad guys under hot ultraviolet lights.

    After he was busted, Schilling actually tried to claim this was work-related because it helped him avoid sunburn on the job. Nice try, but with that logic you could visit brothels because they help you avoid loneliness on the job.

    On one particular day noted in newly released police reports, Schilling spent more than three hours on personal business. Assuming May 27 was even close to a typical day, the good citizens of Muskego have been ripped off.

    The other detective, now ex-detective, James Kaebisch, was shopping at the Geoffrey Beene Outlet Store way over in Kenosha County while on duty, and in May, he spent exactly one hour and 13 minutes discussing marital problems with a friend in South Milwaukee. Hard to take a bite out of crime when you're chewing the fat miles away in another county.

    Maybe having administration problems?

    Most government offices make employees account for their time out of the office. Police depts also. They do things like checking mileage, requiring officers to radio in when they are leaving their vehicles, comlete out of county forms to justify when they are leaving the county and various other things to account for their time. So what was the administration doing while the detectives were goofing off?
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
