Creeper cop Frank Tillman back on the job, arresting young women

Albuquerque police officer Frank Tillman was suspended for one month without pay for sending sexual text-messages to an underage girl.

According to public records obtained by Police Complaints, the creeper is already back on the job. And his first arrest back on the job is of a 22-year-old woman.

From an ABQ Journal story by Jeff Proctor when Tillman was suspended:

But [Chief] Schultz, who has the final say on discipline for officers, chose instead to suspend Tillman for 160 hours without pay and reassign him from the traffic unit to a job where he will respond to other types of calls.

It seems that the “other types of calls” may still be putting young women and girls at risk.

Officer Frank Tillman suspended—not fired—for sex texts to teen girl

From an Albuquerque Journal story by Jeff Proctor, APD Releases Texts From Officer to Teen:

Albuquerque police officials on Tuesday released a series of text messages between an officer and an underage girl he had written up for a traffic offense, which the officer later dismissed.

The texts, dated June 10, 11 and 12, show officer Frank Tillman asking the girl whether she’s still together with her boyfriend, telling her he wants to kiss her and that her being pregnant “is hot and its (sic) a turn on.”

That probe ended with IA investigators and a deputy chief recommending Tillman be fired.

But Schultz, who has the final say on discipline for officers, chose instead to suspend Tillman for 160 hours without pay and reassign him from the traffic unit to a job where he will respond to other types of calls.

We hope the “other types of calls” Tillman will be answering in his new position never involve someone’s underage daughter, but the Chief isn’t making any promises.

"Creeper" Michael Eiskant finally off the force

Ex-Cop Michael Eiskant Caught Masturbating on Video While on Duty

A statement from the Attorney General Gary King’s office said that Eiskant promised he “will never again become a law enforcement officer anywhere in the United States,” as part of his plea deal…. Eiskant entered a no contest plea in Bernalillo County District Court in front of Judge Reed Sheppard for other issues. The no contest pleas were for two counts of attempt to commit a felony for false imprisonment, one count of stalking, two counts of harassment and charges for larceny and possession of marijuana. The criminal complaint details that seven of the charges happened in 2011 and plenty of them involved women in traffic stops.

Officer Michael Eiskant Accused of Harassing Women

From a story by KRQE, Santa Fe Officer Accused of Harassing Women:

During nearly a dozen years with the Santa Fe Police Department, Sgt. Michael Eiskant has racked up a stack of citizen complaints.

Allegations include bullying, volatility and abuse of authority. One man even claimed Eiskant pulled a gun on him while the officer was off duty and said, “I can’t wait to get you when I’m on duty,” according to the complaint.

And while it’s not uncommon for citizens to complain about even the best officers, a close examination of both the complaints provided to News 13 by the city of Santa Fe and interviews with citizens who’ve had run-ins with Eiskant reveals a pattern of an officer who allegedly uses his police powers to harass women.

“He’s very dangerous,” said “Gail,” a woman who asked not to be identified. “He’s a predator. He preys on weaker, or what he believes at first are weak, women.”
