Cop Fired for Watching Porn in the Cruiser

A Clinton police officer has been busted for watching porn on his car computer.

A perverted cop from downstate Illinois will have to look for a new job.

Billy E. Hurst was let go from the Clinton Police department after he was caught watching "hardcore porn" on his cruisers computer terminal.

Make that 27 hours of hardcore porn.  

Hurst, who worked as juvenile officer, claimed that city officials violated eavesdropping laws by collecting the information from the squad car terminal. But the Clinton Police and Fire Commission, which voted unanimously to terminate the dirty cop, dismissed that argument.

The 15-year veteran of the Clinton department has a history of sexual perversion. He was disciplined in 2003 for exposing himself in a Clinton bar.
