Is Daniel Shame Moonlighting?

Proving once again that truth is stranger than fiction...
From today's South Bend Tribune (page E6)

Videotape captured two Hammond police officers having sex while on duty in two separate incidents, and Chief Brian Miller will seek the firings of the officers.

Cpl. Shawn McDaniel and an unidentified officer were captured on police videotape taking part in sexual activity in the police station, Sgt. Michael Joden said Wednesday. McDaniel and other officers also were being investigated for allegations of possession of marijuana, Jorden said.

Miller also decided to ask the Board of Public Works and Safety to fire Cpl. Kirk Andrews after evidence surfaced in an internal investigation that Andrews also had engaged in sexual activity while on duty.

Police also investigated a "lingerie party" involving several officers at McDaniel's home, but could not determine that anything illegal happened at the party. Several on-duty officers showed up at the party believing it was a barbarcue, but left when they discovered the true nature of the gathering, Jorden said.

"What people do on their own time is their own business, as long as it's legal," Jorden said. "We can't police their behavior off duty."

In any event, Officer McDaniel should have a promising future with the BSPD.
