Qui Custodiet, IV

A Rochester area deputy has been charged for, apparently on his own time and using his own equipment, spying on a neighbor who he apparently feared was a child molestor (as is seemingly implied by the article).

I present this out of my usual academic interest in the role of the police--is one ever off duty enough to not investigate something that seems wrong? If not, are there still proper channels to follow? Some lawyers are fascinated by the artificial construct of corporations, assessing their powers and limits. Personally, I'm always more interested in the societal constructs such as police, and how we interpret which laws do and don't apply within our system.
