The hits just keep on coming. Last
year, they get a nut-job who (allegedly) likes to stick his pistol in
peoples (and folks) mouths while threatening them with a Taser to the
balls....and he's dumb enough not to clean the DNA off his gun. He
brings along an XO whose entire career is littered with the wreckage of
Districts and Units, buried in a blizzard of PAR forms of people leaving
his crap-tacular management style. A sergeant attempts to inject some
humor into the situation and manages to catch a three day suspension.
- What's up with the XO in 011 screaming at people Saturday night?
- 4 officers on second watch in 011 were officially counseled today by
their sgts for NOT taking lunch. None of the 4 put in OT slips for
not taking their lunch. The order for the official, documented
counseling sessions came from none other than XO Lemmer. This is NOT a
joke. It actually happened. God save 011.
There's an order mandating lunches be taken? That's a first.
And an answer to the initial question:
- Rules and Regulations pertaining to professionalism, conduct and
demeanor pertain to all sworn members of this department. General Orders
Document document document... This isn't supervision, it's creating a
hostile and oppressive work environment in the guise of being a so
called supervisor. The affected officers should be strong, pool their
resources and retain joint counsel outside of FOP.
[...] Yelling at and demeaning subordinates indicates a crisis in
supervisory confidence and a dangerous loss of discipline and self
it is unfortunate that the top of the supervisory echelon in 011 is
only seeking to punish and inconvenience the rank and file to protect
their unearned positions at any and all costs.
This certainly sounds like a
hostile workplace environment lawsuit waiting to happen. We're pretty
sure that you aren't allowed to yell, belittle, harass subordinates.
There are rules of professional conduct and all that. Certainly a
Commander who used to work in IAD and run illegal First Amendment
investigations is aware of that?
But don't cry too hard for 011 - they're fighting back. We got this from a reader:
This statue appeared outside the XO's office window shortly before the snow flew. It's the close-up that is amusing:
No word if anyone caught discipline for this, but when the statue was removed, these appeared all over the District:
that with the rumored EEOC beef that has already been filed against the
XO and you've got an issue that maybe McCarthy ought to address before
taxpayers end up on the hook for some serious money.
