Investigation Launched Thanks to Oregon Cop Block
This post was shared by DEO via CopBlock.org’s submit page.
As a followup to the story about Rob Nashif, thanks to efforts by Oregon Cop Block, and Greater Cleveland Cop Block, the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Department is launching an investigation into the activities of one of it’s officers.
CCS officer Rob Nashif has been taking photos of people he pulls over and posting them on his personal facebook page, so his buddies (most likely all cops) can make fun of the people. That’s what you get for being a dick, Nashif! Karma is a bitch, isn’t it?
This was brought to me by Chris Ponte of Oregon Cop Block. His vigilance in keeping CCS officers accountable deserves the credit for bringing this scumbag to the spotlight! Good Job Ponte!

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office has launched an internal investigation into entries posted by a deputy on his personal Facebook page.
Deputy Robby Nashif has limited access to his Facebook page so only those he approves can see the entries. But they have come to light on the website OregonCopblock.org, a self-styled watchdog organization that posts blog entries on what it considers to be questionable behavior by police.
One OregonCopblock blog entry is entitled “Clackamas County Bully Deputy Takes Photos of Suspect for Facebook Friends to Make Fun Of.” The entry includes dashboard-camera video from Nashif’s patrol car showing him making a traffic stop and then using a cellphone to photograph the vehicle, its license plates and the driver.
The entry accuses Nashif of using the photos to make a “virtual dartboard” for mockery, but doesn’t elaborate.
Lt. Robert Wurpes, sheriff’s spokesman, declined to comment on OregonCopblock’s specific allegations.
“It’s an open, on-going investigation,” Wurpes said. “But it should be pointed out that some of these Facebook entries are five years old.”
Wurpes said the sheriff’s office policies allows online social-media blogging if their entries do not endanger working relationships, negatively affect duties, promote ill will among employees or damage the public’s perception of the sheriff’s office or Clackamas County.
