An online version of the NBC Dateline report from Feb. 3 includes the following exchange between Burks and a police officer:
Michael Burks: My father was a police officer. I was a police officer. I work for the Department of Homeland Security. I understand you guys have a job to do and Iâm not trying to tell anything else other than that. I swear to God, as God as my witness, Iâm wearing a St. Michaelâs medal right now, okay? I was not going to do anything with her.
But the detective doesnât seem to be buying his story.
Police officer: I am telling you I donât believe that you didnât intend to have sex at some point with the girl.
Burks: Sir, I swear to God.
Police officer: It would have happened, I guarantee you, it would have happened.
And he has one more thing to say to the disgraced federal agent.
Police officer: In your position, you should have known better. You know the law. Thatâs even worse. You know what, that puts a bad mark on my job, on everybody. Every cop in this country you put a bad mark on.
Burks: I know, sir.
