Whitlock: There’s merit to Maegan ‘The Tennessee Cop-ubine’ Hall’s sexual grooming lawsuit

The proponents of diversity and equity rarely mention the confusion and chaos brought on by hiring practices that devalue competence.

Maegan Hall, the so-called Tennessee “sex cop,” is a prime example of the inevitable negative consequence of America’s obsession with diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Hall is at the center of a sexcapade that rocked the La Vergne, Tennessee, police department. The 26-year-old married officer had sexual relations with at least seven of her male co-workers. She’s been fired. Her paramours, depending upon their level of honesty during an internal affairs investigation, have been either fired or suspended. Hall is the butt of constant social media jokes and memes.

She’s now fighting back, though. She hired attorneys and on Monday filed a 51-page federal lawsuit claiming her superiors and peers groomed her for sexual exploitation during her two-year stint on the force.

Hall is suing the wrong people. She should sue the estate of George Floyd. She should sue writers Ibram X. Kendi, Robin DiAngelo, and Nikole Hannah-Jones. Hall should sue all the other diversity, equity, and inclusion grifters who groomed her for exploitation.

Hall applied for a job in law enforcement in the aftermath of the death of St. George Floyd. Corporate media blamed Floyd’s fentanyl-induced death on the whiteness and maleness of Derek Chauvin’s knee. In reaction to that scapegoating, police departments across the country prioritized “diversity” above qualifications in looking for new recruits.

Despite a history of mental issues, Maegan Hall met the newly installed George Floyd standards for a career in law enforcement. From there, nature took its course and insanity ensued.

Corporate media is not framing the Hall saga properly. The story has been reduced to a simple tale of a loose woman providing sexual favors to a bunch of horny, immoral men. That story isn’t a lie. But it’s surface-level and shallow.

What happened to Maegan Hall has become commonplace in work settings in the last 50 years, as all industries apply affirmative action hiring standards.

Maegan Hall was treated the way unqualified employees are always treated. Superiors and peers treat them as inferior prey. When people believe they’ve done you a favor, they do not treat you as an equal, and eventually they seek acts of gratitude. It could be as “innocent” as demanding you speak to them in a deferential manner or as insidious as sexual favors.

Hall acknowledges in her lawsuit that she struggled to do her job as a police officer and that her peers covered for her. She admits that officers used her shortcomings to pressure her for sexual favors.

This is commonplace in the television and movie industry. In the sports broadcasting world, everyone pretends that super hot women know just as much about sports as guys who have spent their whole lives obsessing about the games. Predator executives hire women who need them to survive in their jobs.

I’m not talking about every woman on sports TV. But it’s more than 50 percent. This is an open secret. It’s a byproduct of a Hollywood system that believes it can make anyone it chooses into a superstar. And maybe it's true. The Hollywood machine has half the world thinking Lizzo is a sex symbol.

Movies and television are subjective industries. Law enforcement is a life-and-death industry. It’s a mistake for industries with real-life consequences or objective required levels of performance to adopt the practices common in subjectives industries.

America’s failing educational institutions have adopted subjective standards. The problem is there are objective standards to measure academic progress. The same is true for policing.

As we’ve lowered policing standards, public safety has dipped. We have departments that look more inclusive and cities that are objectively more dangerous.

Furthermore, we have employees more vulnerable to the kind of exploitation Maegan Hall allegedly endured.

She added no value to La Vergne Police Department. She made everyone’s job harder. She made her peers less safe. If one of her co-workers complained publicly, he would have been labeled a misogynist. He would have risked his career advancement.

When someone does you a favor, eventually they will wonder what is in it for them. The officers in Tennessee decided Hall was worth the headache as long as she served as the department concubine.

I’m not defending the men. I’m explaining the reality and the inevitable trouble that comes along with America’s forced diversity obsession. These same issues are undermining the American military. We keep lowering the physical requirements to make room for women. The lowered standards reduce the safety of all our military men and women.

The forced diversity leads to sexual malfeasance. Maegan Hall is far from alone. Her lawsuit has merit. She’s just suing the wrong people.
