D.C. officer charged with taking cash

By Washington Post editors

A veteran D.C. police officer has been charged with taking cash while on the job in exchange for offering protection to a liquor store.

Charging documents state that Officer Nathaniel Anderson pocketed $25 per night for providing protection around closing time at a liquor store in northwest Washington from 2006 to 2009.

Anderson is charged with illegal supplementation of salary and faces up to one year behind bars.

I wonder why the liquor store just didn't put him on salary?

@ PublicEnemy1: If the liquor store had put him on salary would that change the fact that he was being paid to work a part-time job, during the hours that he was on regular duty? It would seem to me that he would still be double-dipping.

Is your name and your career worth more than around $150 a week?

Viewed alternately, in the face of DC's enduring robbery problem, are normal police services so inadequate that a store owner is willing to pay around $7,500 a year (on top of DC's sick tax rates)?!

Is the store legally culpable for bribery? Or were they pressured into it?
