A Chillicothe police officer who retired this year has been charged with sex crimes involving a 15-year-old girl.
This one is unlike the others in the fact that this one doesn’t involve an officer being assigned to a school. However this is yet another example of a predator looking to hide in plain view. Even more than just hiding in plain view, they are seeking positions which will provide them a blanket of trust.
McKee served on the Chillicothe police force from 1986 until he retired on March 1. The allegations against him did not arise until after his retirement, Schmidt said. McKee also has been a minister with Liberty Hill Christian Union Church since 2009.
Not only was he a cop, but a minister too. Both of those positions people provide a blanket amount of trust and the serious predators know it. I wish that the world was a better place, but human nature means that some are predators, some are sheep, and some are sheep dogs. The most dangerous predators know to appear as a sheep dog.

Because sometimes the best place to hide is in plain sight. Even better is to compound positions that will induce trust.
