Texas Police Officer Pleads Guilty To Possession Of ‘Sadistic’ Child Pornography

Dallas Police Department Officer Daniel Collins, 35, pleaded guilty to uploading sexually explicit images of children using the City of Dallas’ employee internet, announced U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas Erin Nealy Cox. The guilty plea was on August 21.

Collins was a senior corporal with the department assigned to the Auto Theft Unit.

According to News Channel 10 Collins uploaded sexually explicit photos of prepubescent girls to his various Google accounts via the City of Dallas’ internet network.

Google flagged the images – one uploaded on May 13 to an account tagged “Dan Collins” and two more uploaded on June 29 to an account tagged “John Smith” –  to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which filed a Cyber Tip line report with the Dallas Police Department.

In the report, they noted that one of the profiles included a photo of a man in a police uniform, later determined to be Collins.

A Dallas IT specialist traced the IP addresses used for the uploads to the City of Dallas internet network. Investigators determined that the same Google accounts were also accessed from Collin’s residence.

In an interview with federal agents, Mr. Collins admitted to accessing the Google accounts and saving child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox released this statement:

“Law enforcement officers take an oath to protect and serve. This defendant allegedly undermined that vow, preying upon our most vulnerable. The Department of Justice will not tolerate the exploitation of children – especially by our public servants.”

Collins faces up to 20 years in federal prison. Collins resigned from the Dallas Police Department before he could be fired.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
