Lee Deputy Robert Hamer has been fired for allegedly having pornography on his computer. Even more shocking, included in the photographs were what appear to be a topless woman in his patrol vehicle. There’s no indication that any charges are being considered.
It’s been a bad few days for law enforcement in Southwest Florida. I just discussed the Naples officer who picked up charges this weekend. In addition to this story coming up, there are reports coming out of an Officer-involved shooting in Fort Myers today, and there was a shootout with a Lee Deputy that left a man dead a few days ago. Details are still scarce on that shooting, which occurred behind the Love Boat Ice Cream shop (which is a favorite of Crimcourts). I have been following that story, as the deceased was friends with some of my mutual friends, who are heartbroken at the incident. Crimcourts will be watching for updates.
