School Resource Officer Mauro Edwards Caught Viewing Child Porn, Keeps Job

The information below was shared anonymously via CopBlock.org/Submit by someone appalled by the double standards afforded to a man because he wears a badge with “Marshall County Sheriff’s Department.”

Date of Incident: 09/04/2014
Individual Responsible: Mauro Edwards
Outfit: Marshall County (TN) Sheriff’s Department

Mauro Edwards, the school resource officer at Cornersville High School was caught viewing child porn on the school’s computer. Apparently he received a three-day suspension and was then transferred to another part of the sheriff’s department.

On September 8th Edwards’ colleagues at the Marshall County Sheriff’s Outfit announced that he would not face any charges.

Earlier this year, when Mauro met with the school board, upon being assigned to Cornersville High School, principal Bob Edens was quoted as saying:

“He gets along great with the kids … He’s a big help to me, and a true friend. We’re blessed to have him.”

I wonder if he’d still stand by that statement…

On their website, the Marshall County Sheriff’s Outfit notes that the job of the school resource officer”are responsible to provide security” within the schools – do students, parents, teachers, and others in the community think having someone of Edwards character helps to provide security?
