Your council presentation was good but incomplete. There were two long term city employees who the police video tape interviewed on the Roger Smith investigation with impeccable records throughout their career with the city. Two employees that were interviewed had their attorneys were present and also audio recorded their testimony. The State Whistleblower Statute was invoked.
The bottom line is both law enforcement officers lied their asses off at the council meeting tonight and apparently no one including councilman Ford gives a shit. Ford suspects collusion and pervasiveness but he just cannot accept the fact that those law enforcement officers were lying their asses off. I am so utterly sad that my colleagues and I have spent the better part of our lives committed to such a corrupt organization.
Ford was the last hope but apparently in the end he is the biggest hypocrite of them all. Was of the witnesses with 36 years with the city and advanced diabetes was constructively terminated by being effectively forced to resign. The only two people telling the truth that are left will probably be fed to the lions in the future once everyone that is guilty or are complicit are secure in the fact that are city officials and law enforcement officers have effectively let them skate for self serving political reasons.
I would ask for a copy of all of the transcripts when they become available. I know two people that will check them against their own audio recordings to see if they have been doctored.
Good luck and maybe this is not over yet and justice still may prevail.
