Ex-Porn Star Cop Michael Verdugo’s Big Win Isn’t The End Of His Tribulations

One-time (literally, just one time) porn star Michael Verdugo might yet have a future with Florida law enforcement: A 19-member state panel says the former Hollywood cop, ousted for supposedly failing to disclose his former employment as a Rope Rituals performer, can keep his police certification — something his old department tried stripping him of. So now Verdugo just has to prove he was ousted of his sexual orientation. [photo: Verdugo on right, his boyfriend Mike Silver, a cop himself, on left]

    I thought he was an interior designer? Why is he wanting to get back in where they don’t want him?

    Because, even if he doesn’t actually return to the police force, he feels, as I would, that he has a moral duty to fight the injustice and discrimination that he was subjected to.

    Sometimes it’s about the greater good. Too bad more people don’t understand this.

    Good luck to him. He obviously wants to be a cop very badly, and he deserves another chance.

    Hmm. something looks off
    *grabs sharpie and draws ropes along his torso and arm *
    There we go that’s better

    Cute couple. Good luck to him. There are a lot of bigots in Florida. In fact Stormfront is run in West Palm Beach and regularly has meetings there.

    Since that’s what he wants to work in, let him work there. Good luck, and hope he’ll be safe in a dangerous job.

    Mr. Verdugo, I would not want you as my partner were I a cop on a tough beat in any inner-city. No, dear, you look more of a joke in a cop uniform than someone who is be respected. Suppose a scenario where you and I have walk up to a man who knows once he is cuffed he is going to spend the rest of his life in prison or face the death penalty. You do not have the look of authority and might get your (me) partner killed.

    They made a wise decision to send you on your way. The police, fire and military are not for sexual fantasies.
