Don’t make me call your daddy!
By LeaAnne Klentzman
Cops like to think of themselves as a family. Well, over on the west side of the county it is time to bust up some family ties, they appear to be binding… on the community.
We are being told of an officer who likes to throw his power around. He uses his badge to … bully. Really? We don’t even allow that in schools anymore.
This kind of behavior can only flourish if it is acceptable to those running the operation.
Administrators, you listening? You have a problem. When the public even feels oppressed by an officer, it binds those family ties. Imagine if a citizen has the gall to say something to that offending officer – when he is behaving badly – off duty, and they are shown the badge? Really?
Then imagine that citizen having the guts to call and complain, only to get hold of the offensive officer’s brother-in-law? Nada, nothing, no help at all…the behavior goes unchecked. But wait, now they want the victim to file a formal complaint, in yet another division of the same agency, but then you get offensive officer’s sister.
Oh well, maybe a complaint can be made at a county wide agency, oops, there you have yet another sister. Honestly, maybe it’s time to rethink this family thing. Heck, over at the Sheriff’s Office, they have entire families on the payroll. The problem with the whole family employment act being done by these west side agencies is that when a problem arises, there will always be questions about the way the problem was handled.
Heck, this one punk is destroying the reputation of his father; he NEVER acted like that! Time for cop dynasty’s to start woop’n their toddlers and teach them right from wrong.
