A Cayucos firefighter was arrested Thursday for rape, sodomy and oral copulation by force or fear.

After a short investigation into reports of child abuse, San Luis Obispo Sheriff deputies arrested Oscar Higueros, Jr., 38. Neighbors said Hiqueros had been involved in a romantic relationship with an underage girl.

Higueros is a paid volunteer firefighter with the Cayucos Fire Department, according to a sheriff’s department press release.

Deputies arrested Higueros on three felony counts  and booked him into the San Luis Obispo County Jail. His bail is set at $1 million.

      TThe ladies and gentlemen will also note with keen interest that the Rhodes Scholar defending the fleecing of the public by over-paid fire fighters doesn’t even attempt to defend the high priced “public servants”. Rather in true form of what constitutes as “discussion” these days, he goes after the messenger that dearth say out loud that the emperor (or fire fighter) has no clothes.

    I was once told by a sage friend that any Government Job that has a 2–3—5+ year waiting list of people trying to get hired for it is obviously over-paid. Fire Fighters are at the top of the list in over-paid Government Employees. Everyone knows it…but it’s not politically correct to speak truth these days now is it.

      Don’t get all in a huff. This guy was NOT full time and does not get much, if any, in the way of benefits. “Paid volunteer” means they get paid if they go on a call.

    So the neighbors call it a romantic relationship with an underage girl? Well of course! Every young girl dreams of rape, sodomy and oral copulation by force or fear-because of the high romance factor.

    Another fine example of a public servant gone amok. Hopefully the Cayucos Fire Department won’t hire him back later, like the City of San Luis Obispo did with Ryan “knock-out” Mason. Or maybe they will simply reward him with overtime, like the City of San Luis Obispo did according to calcoastnews with Ronald Faria. Better yet, maybe he can get visitation with the child molester Monn from Paso Robles.

      So hispanic name and you bring up deportation.

      “This new form of racism is sometimes referred to as “modern racism” and characterized by outwardly acting unprejudiced while inwardly maintaining prejudiced attitudes, and displaying subtle prejudist behaviors such as actions informed by attributing qualities to others based on racial stereotypes, and evaluating the same behavior differently based on the race of the person being evaluated.”

    He is a “paid volunteer” with the FD? What is the difference between a paid volunteer and an employee? Not to say that employees are not volunteers (or coerced), but it is confusing.

      I think the difference is 1) benefits, and 2) liability.
