Jeff Perry was a complete dirtbag when he was a cop. His life will be defined by the events in the bog when his fellow perverted felon buddy Scott Flannagan sexually assaulted a 14 year-old girl in 1991. His final legacy may be something else, but in his mind, Perry knows what happened and how he failed to intervene in the sexual assault of a girl when he could have and should have. A woman illegally strip-searched in Wareham when she was 14 says Congressional candidate Jeff Perry, then a police sergeant, did nothing to help her. Perry, a Republican running in the 10th District, wasnâ€™t charged in the 1991 incident, but an officer he supervised, Scott Flanagan, pleaded guilty to indecent assault. In a statement released Wednesday by her lawyer, Lisa Allen said Perry was nearby when Flanagan searched her, and must have heard her screaming. The Associated Press does not generally identify victims of sexual assault, but Allenâ€™s lawyer, Howard Friedman, said she gave permission for her name to be used. Perry said Wednesday that what happened to Allen was wrong and called Flanaganâ€™s actions â€śdespicable and a betrayal.â€ť He didnâ€™t respond to Allenâ€™s allegation that he didnâ€™t help her.

Philosophical similarities? Fear of dissing a cop? A friend of mine -Democrat party hardcore as long as I have known him, but we're friends anyways- who lives in that district is a cop. He came to my house a couple of days ago and had a Perry sticker on his Yukon just next to his "thin blue line" sticker. I asked him if he knew Perry and he said he had met him once or twice but never worked with him. I asked if he had heard about the allegations and his response was, "I'm nervous about that, but I have to let the truth sort out. I'm a cop and I support my brothers until I'm convinced otherwise". I asked about the party and he said, "I know, but the brotherhood trumps that" "Really?" I asked. "Really" he said. I said "What if that 14 year-old was my daughter?" He replied, "I'd blow his freaking brains out and go to jail." Friendship intact and I learn something. Interesting day.
