Whether you like your police gossip highbrow or lowbrow, Renton, Washington has got something for you.
Like finishing your broccoli before you get ice cream, let’s start with a more academic breakdown first, and finish off with the dirty, dirty dish.
Anonymous poster: Let’s focus on the issues.
* The chief threatened the entire department with discipline [employer sanctions] to come forward over a cartoon.
* The chief demoted two members over the cartoon after Judd [creator of the wicked funny cartoons] came forward (probably a severe emotional over reaction).
* The chief again threatened the entire department with criminal charges to come forward (probably could have done this a little more professionally).
* The chief took a criminal statute of cyberstalking and twisted it to obtain a search warrant to find the cartoonist since no one else came forward (violation of civil rights – freedom of speech and protection against unreasonable search and seizure). [First and Fourth Amendments, respectively.]
* After being called on the carpet to go before a judge, the chief withdrew the warrant (thereby clearly admitting a mistake without saying it).
* The chief ordered the destruction of public documents to prevent their disclosure, violating the Public Records Act (a state crime).
The violation of Washington’s Public Records Act is a crime. Violation of constitutional rights through the use of an illegal search warrant is a crime. The chief’s leadership has gone down a slippery slope of non-return. Without public outcry, the chief (to include Mayor, city attorneys office, etc.) will have gotten away with these actions.
Without public outcry, the officers that behave like spoiled teenagers will continue.
By the department destroying public documents, no one will ever know the truth of how the department is managed. Surely, there are dozens of members that have breathed a sigh of relief [over] the dozens of internal investigation files being shredded. They have literally gotten away with the sustained [found guilty in an internal affairs investigation] acts they have committed. And many of them are running the department
Whew! Now that the Power Point presentation is over, let’s get to the good part.
Anonymous poster: Hey Milo [Chief Milosevich] I heard the guy who gave you that faulty information also lent you his wife. You must feel like a real man now, throwing that ol’ hag around.
Word of warning to you, better double-bag it, because she really gets around the ghetto with his seedy past confidential informants. I’d hate for you to get the ninja she’s carrying around ["the ninja" = HIV/AIDS -- you don't see it, and it kills you] if you don’t already got it.
I only say this because everything this guy is giving you is bad. Bad info and a bad trick. If you accepted I’m going to wonder about your standards, since she looks like the wrinkled ass of a Shar Pei.
If you’re wondering what s/he is talking about, well, so am I. Go to http://www.rentontalk.com and request more specific dirt on this topic.
