In Albuquerque, a police officer is caught with his pants not quite down, but nonetheless having sex on the hood of a car. From the pictures released, it looked consensual. This is not what can be said of the conduct of a Philadelphia police officer. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Keith Corley II, a 4 year member of the Philadelphia police department, was charged with raping a woman in the back of his squad car while on duty in the 18th District in West Philadelphia.
The Inquirer is keeping a tally of this and says it’s the “third time in the last two weeks, that a Philadelphia police officer has been charged with a violent attack against a woman.” The first two times were domestic disputes. The third case is outright rape.
According to a spokeswoman for the District Attorney, a woman told police that she was waiting for a bus at 52nd and Market streets to go to the 69th Street Terminal when Corley pulled up in his squad car and picked her up. The woman was driven to an area of Cobbs Creek near Cedar Avenue and was raped in the back seat of the cruiser. After the act, she was dropped off at the bus terminal, police says.
DNA from the squad car seems to support the case. Officer Corley is charged with rape, involuntary deviant sexual intercourse, sexual assault, indecent assault, indecent exposure and official oppression. He is currently suspended from duty.
