I got this letter last weekend. It speaks for itself, (I’ve not edited it either)
I was just surfing around and found your page very interesting. I was wondering what your thoughts would be on an incident that happened to my husband on the gold line this past week. He was riding his bike on the train when an officer stopped him asked him for his ticket and warns him about having the bike on the train.
My husband asks him for the schedule of when bikes are permitted. The officer did not know the schedule was angered at the question taking it as questioning his authority, threatened to take my husbands bike and tare up his ticket. When my husband stated to him that it is his right to question his intentions the officer when into a rage and threatened to kill my husband.
When the main reason I am telling you this is that we made 3 complaints, why 3. The fist one was never taken the second was lost and it wasnt until we spoke to a watch commander at a different department that we learned the Metro sheriffs handle all there own complaints and lost reports are a recurring issue.
This is unacceptable!!!!!!!.
To put top it all off we have just found that my husbands supervisor also complained about the same sheriff and was latter threatened by him for complaining. I feel he is a serious threat to the community and should be removed from his current duties. We literally had to accuse them of destroying our report so we could get some kind of reference number witch was nonexistent the first couple of time we called. I wish I could say this is the only incident we have had with our corrupted system but I have court document and internal affairs reports that show that we as a society are not protected form our true terrorists.
