Cops trolling for little boys and girls for sex
Officer Being Investigated
November 13, 2007
NORWALK - The head of the Norwalk Police Department's detective bureau is under investigation on an allegation of sexual misconduct with a minor, Police Chief Harry Rilling said.
Rilling confirmed Sunday that Lt. Thomas Cummings is not on active duty while state prosecutors investigate the complaint from a 15-year-old Weston boy. The probe was first reported Saturday by The Advocate of Stamford.
"He will not be back on duty or in his capacity as a police officer until this is cleared up one way or another," Rilling said Sunday.
Rilling said he sought an outside agency to investigate the boy's allegations.
The 46-year-old Cummings, a 24-year veteran, has not been charged with any crime.
Police searched Cummings' Norwalk home. They seized his personal computer.
The chief said the alleged incident took place while Cummings was off duty.

Police get away with sexual and gross misconduct, especially in Connecticut. Police will even have citizens beat up, falsely arrested, commit perjury to have victims of police retaliation locked up in prison, and pay to have hit men kill citizens that lodge police misconduct complaints.
