When I was kid, I was taught to always trust the police officers. I was taught that uniform meant they were there to help. That these people would keep me safe. Most of us probably grew up this way.
There’s a hot place in hell for men like former officer Cates. He was supposed to help her. I’m sure the sight of him put her frazzled nerves at ease. He took advantage of his position. He took advantage of her trust.
He’s a monster. And not the kind your parents can scare out of your closet. He’s worse than the monster lurking in the alley waiting for their next victim. He’s worse because he hid behind a badge while committing evil. Not only did he violate that girl, but he made the day to day lives of good officers harder.
I’m sure prison will be an interesting place for him.
