David B. Thompson, a Portland, Oregon prison guard is being investigated for bragging about abusing prisoners on the official City of Heroes message boards. On a place usually reserved for discussing strategy for the game, Thompson, posting under the names "Trafalger" and "Deadwalk" bragged about the enjoyment he got from using his taser on inmates and crushing one man's eye-socket.

Possibly not realizing that anonymous internet message boards are not totally anonymous (the IP address of the posts originated from the prison), Thompson made comments such as, "Seeing someone get TASER'd is second only to being the guy pulling the trigger. That is money. Puts a smile on your face." Thompson averaged around 13 posts per day while on the job, and eventually the Portland Tribune was tipped off by a forum user.

While we understand prison is a extremely rough and volitile place, over the top comments and actions like this are what often gives members of law enforcement a bad reputation. It is also ironic that Thompson was posting on the message board for City of Heroes, as there is nothing heroic about his actions.
