The Photoshop (TM) Cop: Extra Videos

Share on Nextdoor

For six years, St. Petersburg police officer Ken Kokotek mocked his superiors on the law enforcement website, under the anonymous screen name of "Picasso." He posted rants, doctored photos of the mayor and police chief and eventually moved to JibJab-type video clips.

After announcing his retirement this past May, and passing around some party invitations revealing his alter-ego, the SPPD administration opened an Internal Affairs investigation into his online posts. In July, they concluded if Kokotek had not retired, he would have been fired for posting "denigrating" and "discrimatory" pictures. Now, they're trying to take his certification so he never works in law enforcement again.

Check out the full story here, along with a slideshow of some of his doctored images.

After the jump, see some more of the videos posted on his site.
