Sex tape prison officer is fired from job

By Sapa, editing Sowetan LIVE | Sep 01, 2011 | COMMENTS [ 93 ]

Mr Big was dismissed this week, after a disciplinary hearing, following the 'embarrassment' over his scandalous sex video with a cop

The dismissal this week of a correctional officer filmed having sex with a policewoman in a hospital, was welcomed by Parliament’s correctional services portfolio committee on Thursday.

“We are happy with the decision to dismiss the officer, and we commend the speedy way in which the case was handled,” committee chairman Vincent Smith said in a statement.

The parliamentary report states that the correctional officer was suspended by the department and subsequently fired on Tuesday this week, after a disciplinary hearing.

On August 15, a report about the correctional officer having sex with the policewoman was published by the Sowetan newspaper.

The pair, both in uniform, were on duty and supposed to be guarding a prisoner at the hospital at the time.

The pictures caused embarrassment to both the department of correctional services and the police.

According to the Sowetan, the correctional officer filmed the encounter himself.

  • The female cop in the video spoke to Sunday World about the scandal.

She’s been receiving counselling, organised by her employer the SAPS and she is suspended from work without pay.

“People have been spreading lies that I have committed suicide. I won’t. I won’t give them that satisfaction,” she says defiantly.

“What I’m more interested in is the identity of the person who leaked that video to the press. I think I need that for my sanity.

“I need to know who this vindictive person is who hated me so much that he or she had to let the whole nation know.”

The policewoman (42) lives in Kagiso township, where she is renting a back room.

“What angers me is that everyone seems to be baying for my blood and that guy in the video is not bothered by what he did,” she says.

Though she won’t speak about the relations that made her and the warder the talk of the town, it’s clear from the video that the two did not have a solid rapport, because during the video she asks him if he is sure that he is HIV negative, to which the fervent prison warder replies: “Mmm... ja”.

Her younger sister is standing by her.

“I don’t know where we would be were if not for the prayers,” she says. And then she goes quiet for a while. “It could have happened to anyone and people act like they have never stepped out of line.”

isnt this what u wanted sowetan...Y R SO SURPRISED AS IF U DIDNT C IT COMING..
Tell me this dear, with all the stories we have seen of this nature what exactly did he think he was doing sending it to a friend, we know that it would not have been a secret besides anything that is available to more than one person is not a secret, he should have been clever in that he takes his uniform off and he does not send the video same time as the employee would not have grounds to fire him but he was on duty which is a defining moment for him.

This guy can win this case, especially when looking at basic conditions of employment. Lunch=17 min What do you eat for lunch, burger,chips or ..........
He was supposed to be on duty guarding a dangerous criminal but he opted to whet the woman's appetite as there was no real fukcing there. Instead of being dismissed he should be sjambooked for being a disgrace to men and not using his nzwiri fruitfully>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

10 things I have learned from this whole rigmarole:

1. Regardless of all the awareness campaigns, we still refuse to condomize.

2. We take for granted what we have until we lose it.

3. There is still a huge grey are between freedom of speech and respect to privacy.

4. Self control, responsibility and morality went out the window some 15 odd
years ago, hence our moral-less children (Jules High School).

5. Technology is determining how we live today.

6. We have the most opportunistic and manipulating press ever.

7. The human species can do anything for sex, worse than animals.

8. Marriage is as cheap as a piece of wiping tissue paper.

9. The belief that a stolen sex is always nice will remain with us until Jesus comes.

10. The reason why we are a Mickey Mouse nation, we use sex for fun.

its not unfair.they were supposed to be doing their job they both should be fired.even if you fall asleep at work you could be in serious trouble(except were I work, they dont care as long as you get the job done).we always complain about prisoners escaping an ask what were the police doing.they have degraded the dignity of other the nation no longer respects the police or the warders.

The dismissal of the Big man is undisputed and uncontested,i could not think of a better verdict than that of dismissal...that is his medicine that he prepared for himself, and i can only surmise that it is the bittest medicine he ever prepared for himself *shaking my head*
